Randolph Duke, who recently bought a home in Los Angeles, boldly mixed evening and sportswear looks. There was a cashmere tank top that looked like a man's undershirt teamed with a ball gown skirt, a sheared mink jacket with exaggerated epaulets, and what Duke calls a "cardigown," a belted, floor-length cardigan sweater. For day, Duke took a nautical turn with front-paneled sailor-styled trousers and deck jackets.

After a seven-year absence from the runway, designer Randolph Duke, known for his form-fitting evening gowns, red-carpet clientele and explosive temper, has chosen the opening night of L.A. fashion week to mount his catwalk comeback. "If you're a fashion designer and you don't do a fashion show, people think you're dead," Duke said, explaining the decision he made barely two months ago. "Like a ballet dancer that's not dancing, it's a sad thing. You're just not on the radar."

By day, the women of prime-time television toil as faux nurses, cops and investigators of paranormal phenomena. On Sunday night, the most coveted role was that of show-stopping glamour puss. The winner was Helen Hunt, who spent most of last season on "Mad About You" wearing a prosthetic pregnant belly on camera but shone as bright as a statuette in a slender, spaghetti-strapped silver gown by Laurel, a German label that doesn't even mention its designer's name.

Frédéric Fekkai, the suave French hairstylist, opens the doors to his newly renovated salon on chic Melrose Place on Wednesday. The Melrose Place location becomes Fekkai's West Coast flagship, taking over from his Beverly Hills' spot, which is scheduled to close. The 2,400-square-foot full-service salon is situated in a loft made softer with brown leather banquettes, silk pillows and nickel lamps. The ample space allows for private rooms that cater to bridal showers and other small fetes.
