Designer, retailer and Hollywood royalty Jennifer Nicholson, who once headlined Los Angeles Fashion Week and showed her collections in New York, has returned to fashion after a nearly five-year hiatus. Her new venture is Pearl Drop, a Venice boutique with a "boho goddess festival vibe," opened just in time to dress customers for this month's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, one of Nicholson's favorite springtime excursions. Located on Lincoln Boulevard in the up-and-coming retail area known as the Linc that's become an alternative to crowded Abbot Kinney, Pearl Drop showcases mostly California-based labels, plus pieces that Nicholson has designed herself under the Pearl Drop label.

"I like being Jack Nicholson's daughter and I'm proud of him, but people don't understand the pressures that come along with that," said fashion designer Jennifer Nicholson, taking a lunch break in Santa Monica on Friday. She'd spent the morning casting models for her runway show this evening at Smashbox Studios in Culver City. Over a veggie burger salad at the Montana Avenue diner Blue Plate, the 40-year-old designer chatted about her family and her new career.

"The best thing about being in fashion is that I don't have to lie about my age anymore," says Jennifer Nicholson. After a short string of small roles, the 38-year-old daughter of Jack Nicholson and his first wife, Sandra Knight, has given up acting to launch an eponymous clothing line. A lifetime vintage collector, Nicholson takes her inspiration from the fanciful '50s.

In a season devoid of color, when pared down, simple shapes are the norm and a return to the 1980s brought a steady march of leggings and layering, the mix has never been more important. No place was this more apparent than at L.A. Fashion Week, which ended Thursday, where styling had the power to make or break a collection. Bebe had the best in the business -- Arianne Phillips, the Oscar-nominated costume designer for "Walk the Line" and Madonna's stylist.

Insurance companies were reported to be spreading out their mailings of certified letters notifying policyholders that earthquake insurance is available after many California post offices were plagued by long lines of people showing up with notices of certified mail--and often with high hopes for something more important. State law requires that notification be made by certified mail, but addressees not at home at the time of delivery get notices that do not indicate the nature of the letters.

There's no sense of inevitability and little grace to the inept, amateurish psychological thriller "Inevitable Grace" (Monica 4-Plex, Sunset 5). Like countless films by novices, it's so overwhelmingly inspired by other movies that there's not a whiff of real life anywhere in it. Stephanie Knights, who is pretty but has little discernible acting ability, makes her screen debut in a role that would tax the abilities of Meryl Streep.
