Much of this year's discussion of first lady fashion has revolved around Michelle Obama and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, but let's not forget Queen Rania, globe-trotting philanthropist and wife of Jordan's King Abdullah II. Model-gorgeous herself, and as much a fan of French couture as is Bruni-Sarkozy, Rania has worn wide belts and safari jackets by Yves Saint Laurent, gowns by Armani Privé and satin sheaths by Prada. But lately, she's also been ordering clothes from Rami Kashou, the Jerusalem-born, L.A.-based designer and former "Project Runway" contestant.

There was a moment in "Project Runway's" season finale Wednesday night when Christian Siriano, the boy wonder who typically finished his challenges early and with utter, arch confidence, looked like he was going to fall to pieces. Heidi Klum had said only his name and nothing else, drawing out her trademark torturous pause. The camera locked on his face: His lip trembled and buckled, he squeezed his roving eyes shut and then opened them, and a couple of tears leaked down his cheek. Suddenly it was evident: Christian, 21, wanted this badly and maybe needed it more than Rami Kashou, an already established Los Angeles designer who has dressed Jessica Alba and Fergie.

The 25-year-old designer emerged last season as one of the bright spots of L.A.'s fashion week. He exhibited a sensibility that interestingly melded modern and ethnic silhouettes. But his new 17-piece fall collection revealed a strong imagination that hasn't quite caught up to his sewing skill, even though he's a more accomplished tailor than many of his L.A. peers. Like many young designers, Kashou fell prey to the idea of exaggerating the season's prevailing ideas.

Fashion shows are renowned for hangers-on, but Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, which wrapped up Friday in Culver City, is cultivating its own unique brand of self-promoters. James Goldstein is the original "fashion star," as he calls himself. Clad always in custom-made leather suits and Crocodile Dundee hats, he roves the runways in New York, Milan, Paris and now L.A. as the owner of a John Lautner house that has been the location for many a fashion shoot.

So now that the runway shows are over, what's the future of L.A. fashion week? "If you build buzz, they will come," said David Caruso, marketing director at IMG. The sports and entertainment marketing firm is planning to produce fashion shows for the first time here in November. The shows will probably take place over a couple of days rather than a week, Caruso said Tuesday in L.A.

As the fall fashion shows continue, this week winding their way to Milan, the final details for next month's runway shows in L.A. are still being ironed out. The most hotly anticipated event is being organized by 7th on Sixth, the same outfit that stages New York's Fashion Week at Bryant Park. "Mercedes-Benz Shows L.A." will take place April 1 through 4 at the Downtown Standard Hotel, with three runways that will cost designers $750 to $3,500 to rent (compared to $20,000 at Bryant Park).

FASHIONABLE attire is usually found at the bar, not behind it, but L.A. night life proprietors are raising the style quotient when it comes to wait staff uniforms. The rule of thumb for many after-dark establishments has traditionally been skimpy or all-black, but new bars like Santa Monica's Chloe and SBE's upcoming Foxtail are moving into contemporary fashion territory. Chloe owners Laurie Mulstay and Ron Marino tapped L.A.

Anyone who wants to make a dance about indolence has a problem. Dance is movement; indolence is not. So choreographer Laura Gorenstein Miller set a task for herself and her Helios Dance Theater when crafting "The Lotus Eaters." This 10-part work, about 75 minutes long, premiered Friday at the Eli and Edythe Broad Stage at the Santa Monica College Performing Arts Center. Billed as a contemporary take on what is a brief episode in Homer's "Odyssey," Miller's piece tells the story of Odysseus' storm-tossed sailors cast up on an unknown island on their way home from the 10-year Trojan War. A few crew members eat the narcotic fruit that grows there and soon forget about home, duty and honor.

It might just be the best deal in town: Grab chic new trousers at Goodwill prices while supporting L.A.'s next generation of fashion talent at the $5 Jeans/Pants Party, happening at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising's Scholarship Store. The event runs until everything -- more than 700 pairs of pants and jeans, all priced at $5 -- sells out.

Angelenos can (and do) wear warm-weather clothing well into fall. You don't necessarily have to mothball your favorite T-shirts and tank tops during the colder months if you have lightweight knits to layer over them. Taking the cue, the clothing company Vince incorporates in each season's collection a nod to the Southern California fashionista's preference for wearing luxury casual gear -- T-shirts, tanks, leggings and sweat pants -- around town. The bicoastal clothing company was founded by Christopher LaPolice, who lives in New York, and Rea Laccone, who resides in Malibu.
