FOR THE last few years in fashion, the most feather-flocked and embroidery-encrusted creations have grabbed the spotlight -- coats designed like antique Chinese landscape paintings, sweaters laden with a maharajah's jewels. Artwork for the privileged body, with price tags to match. But during this New York runway season, set against a gathering economic storm, it was the most stunningly simple look, No. 30 on Ralph Lauren's runway, that stole the shows.

An hour before the first runway show for her Sweetface label, Jennifer Lopez was backstage in a fuzzy pink bathrobe and mile-high heels, having makeup applied to her ankles. Asked for a buzzword to describe her fall collection, she turned her head, searching the air for the answer: "It's very 'baby,' " she said with a manicured flourish. "Like baby from the street.

The cast of "Argo" took home the Screen Actors Guild's top honor Sunday night, solidifying its status as the front-runner in an Oscar race that has been muddled from the beginning. The award for cast in a motion picture is often seen as a bellwether for the Academy Award best picture prize because many SAG members are members of the actors branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences -- the largest voting bloc of the organization. "Argo," which also took home the top honor from the Producers Guild of America Saturday night, bested the casts of "Lincoln," "Les Misérables," "Silver Linings Playbook and "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.
