For many American jean makers, the hardest part about designing them is deciding where to put the label. But for the French team of Marithe and Francois Girbaud, the process is more like reinventing the wheel. "We start with a rendering, an architectural model to illustrate the natural form of the body," says Francois Girbaud, who was in the United States recently to illustrate the subtle differences between French and American fashion.

The word is already out that Hugh Hefner won't be wearing silk pajamas for his wedding Saturday to Playmate of the Year Kimberley Conrad. But he might wear silk boxer shorts under his tuxedo. Sherman Oaks haberdasher Rick Pallack, who prepared the bridegroom's formal wedding attire, tells us he hasn't heard officially, but he did give Hef a pair of black-and-white, paisley-patterned boxers "so he would have on some silk." The king of playboys will call an end to his bachelor days--for the second time--in a '40s-style black-wool, single-breasted tuxedo jacket trimmed with satin lapels, satin vest, white pleat-front shirt, black bow tie, satin-trimmed trousers and black patent leather shoes.

Common doesn't fit the hip-hop stereotype. He raps about peace, his jeans fit smartly and he's the author of three books for young children. "People have the impression that hip-hop is one way, but it's very broad. There are so many voices," the Grammy Award winner says. Born Lonnie Rashid Lynn 34 years ago, his first crossover mainstream album was "Like Water for Chocolate" in 2000, and his best-selling--so far--has been 2005's "Be."

Still, a three-block-long span along Granville Road, a narrow offshoot off Chatham Road, is lined with clothing boutiques.

Parisians pick up fashion flair at an early age. The emphasis in French children's fashion is on personal style. Tots to teens, guided by their parents' sense of chic, can choose togs ranging from the classical--items such as hand-smocked dresses for girls and two-piece suits with short pants and knee socks for boys--to the contemporary, loose-fitting ensembles made up of mix-and-match elements in a profusion of patterned fabrics.

It may be hopelessly '80s of me, but I still love Opium perfume. I'd be wearing it right now if not for the fact that my boyfriend's mother wears it too. Quelle horreur. Stripped of my signature scent, I decided it was high time to update my fragrance wardrobe, preferably with new, unique, expensive, hard-to-find scents that wouldn't remind anyone I loved of their sister, ex-girlfriend or high school guidance counselor.

As soon as customers wander into the Happi Lady Cosmetics store at Shoppers World in the Crenshaw District, Quincy Quinn whips out bottles of his aloe- and apricot-scented lotions and insists that they sample some of his $8 fragrances. Quinn doesn't mean to be pushy, but he says he is desperate. If his fruity fragrances don't move off the shelves this holiday season, he will be forced to break his lease and close up shop.

You can't have a conversation about fashion or cafes these days without mentioning the Beverlys--Beverly Drive and Beverly Boulevard--and it's nearly impossible to keep them straight without a program. Where's Todd Oldham's store going to be? Or the hip cafe Red and its new lounge, the Red Eye? (On Beverly Boulevard.) What about the site of the future Bloomingdale's, the granddaddy of all retailers? (Beverly Drive.
