Novelist Danielle Steel, 65, had a passion for fashion even before she got her hands on her first Hermes Kelly bag, a gift from her grandmother, at age 17. A regular on the bestseller list, with more than 600 million books sold since her first title published in 1972, Steel is adept at documenting the lifestyles of the rich and famous, perhaps because she has always had a front row seat. She grew up between New York and Europe, is a fixture on the San Francisco social scene and a regular at the Paris haute couture shows.

A self-indulgent pilgrimage to the shrine of '70s fabulousness, "Ultrasuede: In Search of Halston" assembles a fine assortment of archival material but falls far short of its stated goal. Halston, who died in 1990, is a compelling subject - a Midwesterner who became synonymous with Manhattan night life while changing the fashion industry - and his story helps to define an era. That story is trivialized in this glitter-deep overview of familiar Studio 54 terrain. The film combines two documentary subgenres: the fashion doc and the inquisitive-filmmaker-inserted-in-every-scene doc. The spotlight-hogging director is star-struck first-timer Whitney Sudler-Smith.

The fashion industry could be the place where AIDS has hit the hardest. And, certainly, looking at the California Fashion Industry salute to Geoffrey Beene Friday night at the Century Plaza, no industry in this town could have produced a stronger response.

When Sylvia Lozano began charging a few dollars for haircuts out of her living room nine years ago, she had high hopes and little money. A longtime resident of Mexico, Lozano came to California thinking of the state as a place where a woman could succeed in the male-dominated world of business. "In Mexico at that time, men didn't respect a woman with ambitions," said Lozano, 46, the mother of five, who was born in the United States but raised in Guadalajara.

Michael Lew is an up-and-coming fashion designer who has won accolades for his contemporary men's and women's clothing lines, which are sold at specialty stores nationwide. But he likes to emphasize that he is a California designer, born and raised in Southern California, trained in Los Angeles and committed to staying here.

Cher has been transformed from the antithesis of fashion to its epitome. Rather than being portrayed in the history books as one of the world's foremost fashion victims, time has turned her into a fashion visionary. Influential designers have evoked her name as a source of inspiration and guidance in striking just the right note of contemporary wretched excess.

Two main events in the same week, on opposite coasts, proved that party plumage in Los Angeles and New York looks much the same these days. Just about every big name in Manhattan's fashion industry attended the gala of the Council of Fashion Designers of America at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The dominant style was glittery but understated, with many guests--including TV's Barbara Walters and designer Donna Karan--opting for ornately embroidered jackets over long, simple dresses.
