Ozwald Boateng is the most famous designer you've never heard of. So goes the tag line for a documentary series about the British bespoke tailor debuting Thursday on the Sundance Channel. It's true; with his credentials, he should be a household name. An imposing 6-foot-4 figure, he has a movie star aura, a former model for a wife and a celebrity clientele other designers would kill for. But if you know him at all, it's probably from the billboards now scattered around L.A.

London-born fashion designer Ozwald Boateng was made for cameras: his sleek frame, piercing good looks and vibrant personality make him his own best model for the dashingly colorful and classically cut mens' wear that has earned him his haute-couture status. It's not surprising, then, that Varon Bonicos' documentary "A Man's Story" - filmed over a period of 12 years - feeds off Boateng's energetic, charming manner as he darts around the globe putting on multimedia fashion shows, extending his brand and obsessing about work to the detriment of his marriage to the beautiful Russian model who bore his two children.

IT'S a busy summer in the vast wasteland, with more new shows than you can shake a stick at. That's exactly what you'll want to do to some of them, but only the most tube-averse won't find some reason to stay inside. Reality, or something called it, still rules the 'waves.

It was a new nude Hollywood on the red carpet Sunday night. Not peekaboo fashion, but a wonderful palette of understated blush and beige tones that stood out in a sea of mostly black. Best supporting actress winner Jennifer Connelly was stunning in a flesh-hued, strapless Balenciaga gown, a fitted top with a long skirt with tiered ruffles. The only accessories were a matching long scarf and simple diamond studs. "I love the elegance and simplicity of the gown.

Musicians are a crazy, uninhibited lot, full of rebellion and often scandalous in their actions and attire, but they were better dressed than ever at the 44th Grammy Awards. The stars walking the red carpet at Staples Center on Wednesday lacked a single jaw-dropping outfit that pushed the limits of bad taste, but they didn't disappoint fans of extreme fashion.

There's a bow-tie revolution going on. Sure, you've seen them on dandy hipsters or the chiseled and coiffed models who grace the pages of men's fashion magazines. And now, 31-year-old NFL linebacker Dhani Jones has proclaimed: "Just because you wear a bow tie doesn't mean you're a nerd." Jones aims to recruit guys of all shapes, sizes and ages into "the way of the bow tie," urging them to adopt not only his habit of wearing one but also his philosophy, what he calls "the resurgence of the gentleman."

CityWalk would have been the perfect place to throw a surprise 60th birthday party for Jon Jerde, the Venice-based architect who is known as the father of the modern mega-mall. He designed CityWalk, as well as Newport Beach's Fashion Island, the Glendale Galleria, Westside Pavilion and hundreds of others. But Jerde, one of the USC School of Architecture's most famous graduates (along with Frank Gehry), was feted Saturday at one of L.A.'s true cultural gems: Union Station.

Travel shows are often about the illusion of uncomplicated assimilation, how simple it could be to jet off from your dull life and be a part of somewhere foreign, how easy it might be to see another place through the eyes of an insider. In truth, though, travel can be a struggle, a war against the unknown. Then -- poof -- as soon as you've got it figured out, it's time to go.

IN an early episode of the new NBC show "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip," Matthew Perry's producer character berates his crew of writers for dressing like adolescent bums. "I've just decided that it's no longer cool for grown men to dress as if they're in junior high school," he screams as the camera pans across men in jeans, T-shirts, flannel shirts and knit caps.

IPads, Nooks and Kindles may be topping wish lists this holiday season, but when it comes to reading about fashion, nothing beats the glossy, full-color grandeur of a coffee-table book. This season's crop of oversized style tomes is especially alluring. Among them are memoir-esque reads, playfully pedantic books on how to hone personal style and a pair of opulent tomes focusing on men's fashion, encompassing styles from cowboy chic to Savile Row sleek. Of course, you won't be packing these biceps-building books for your next red eye. But then not all reading has to be on the run. Curling up in front of the fire with a big juicy traditional book is a great way to take a break from the holiday season hubbub.
