To Paper Magazine's co-founder and editor in chief, Kim Hastreiter, it doesn't matter what the economic headlines say -- the need to have that cool thing is timeless, invincible. "People who collect things are nuts. I know because I'm one of those nuts," Hastreiter said. "When I shop, I'm unstoppable." And though our consumerist mojo may be wounded these days, that isn't likely to deter kids decked out in hot-pink paisley neck scarves and iPhones from engaging in the self-consuming, Ouroboros-like quest of trend-following and trendsetting, especially this weekend.

What do surfwear maker Quiksilver, AIDS, laptops and hip-hop have in common? All have had an enormous impact on the way we live today, say Paper magazine founders Kim Hastreiter and David Hershkovits. A New York-based glossy magazine that began life as a black-and-white fold-out poster, Paper has defined what is hip before it gets trendy.

The lost-and-found caper of the crystal sheath -- a dress valued at $150,000 and promised to the Smithsonian Institution -- could've spelled disaster for any upstart diva. But when the Bob Mackie gown was stolen off a hotel luggage trolley a day before opening night at the Hollywood Bowl, its owner, Carol Channing, conveyed how a true star acts -- with oodles of grace and cool. No wonder the kids are embracing her, again.

PARKED at an outdoor table at the Sunset Marquis, Lindsay Lohan was dressed to stop traffic. The occasion was a luncheon celebrating her March Paper magazine cover, one of three post-rehab covers she has this month. To honor L.A. designer Jeremy Scott, who photographed her for the spread, the broasted bronze brunet wore his thigh-grazing, road sign-print jumper dress, along with the pair of oversized sunglasses that seem to be welded to her head.

Sure, Fashion Week is the place to see what's new from heavyweights like Ralph, Calvin and Oscar, but what about the undiscovered talent? It used to be, editors and buyers had to travel to far-flung warehouses and galleries to see style-makers bubbling up from the underground.

Pop-UP stores are suddenly, well, popping up everywhere. From downtown L.A. to suburban O.C., designers, artists and retailers are setting up shop for a few days, a few weeks or even just a few hours. They're offering limited-edition and one-of-a-kind items and counting on the fashion-hungry to do the rest -- that is, show up in droves. Last month, the controversial Louis Vuitton boutique popped up in the Murakami exhibition at the Temporary Contemporary.

With the economy and the climate demanding that we all start to think about fashion more pragmatically, it's an interesting time to remember Geoffrey Beene, the fine American designer who elevated the everyday, translating common fabrics such as flannel and denim into evening wear, even making a sequined sports jersey gown. A consummate rule-breaker, he bucked tradition by showing his body-conscious clothes on dancers instead of models, then later on dress forms instead of on the runway.

Fifteen years later, Paper is showing its weight. That's Paper, the redesigned magazine of pop culture and fashion. Which started out in 1984 as Paper the paper. Which originally was as famous for its format--folding out to the size of a tablecloth--as it was for inside reports on downtown New York culture, artists, designers and performers that ran inside a Monopoly-like rectangle of boxed ads.

FUN, creative, and most importantly, cute. It was hard to get away from that word this week when Paper magazine -- New York's pioneering style and culture publication -- landed here for a five-day stand of music, fashion, art and low-impact sports. "The crowd last night was so cute. Not fashion cute, but creative cute. Cute," Paper co-founder and co-editor Kim Hastreiter said after Tuesday's opening night party.
