BCBG Max Azria, the Los Angeles-based clothing and accessory manufacturer, has announced its purchase of the majority interest in the French fashion house of Herve Leger. The sale marks the first time an American company has acquired a French designer-couturier. Leger, who showed his first collection under his own label in 1992, became best known for his sexy "bandage dresses," so named because they were constructed of bands of elasticized fabric.

The Web has always been a haven for conspiracy theorists, sci-fi eccentrics and UFO true believers. So it's no surprise that Yahoo! turns up 500 sites in its "X-Files" file, brimming with plot threads, gossip and celeb obsession with the two lead characters. The surprise is that Fox's lawyers have been out to stop them. For the last few years, Fox has closed many fan sites of "The Simpsons," "The X-Files" and "Millennium," citing intellectual property rights.

The show on firmer footing is "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" (10 p.m. NBC), which completes its second season with a grisly episode about a knife-wielding murderer who mutilates four victims within 24 hours.
