Manhattan supermodel Cindy Crawford may be blessed with good genes, but even she pays a high price for beauty. She spends $200 to work out with a personal trainer twice a week. Monthly manicures and pedicures and twice-monthly massages are also routine. Although Crawford says she couldn't begin to estimate the yearly cost of these services, it could easily exceed $4,000, based on prices at leading New York salons.

Does John McEnroe have one more big victory left in him? McEnroe, who turned 32 Saturday, has taken some steps to find out. "I'd like to go out on a good note, a great note for me, and win a big tournament," McEnroe said. But ranked No. 17 after ending 1990 at No. 13 and '89 at No. 4, McEnroe said he might have to look for another line of work if he isn't back in the top 10 by the end of this year. "Then I'm going to seriously think about not playing," McEnroe told the Associated Press.

The drugs helped him buff up in just six months.

Madonna watchers, get ready for another eyeful. The woman who has influenced the fashion scene more than anyone else in the '80s is about to reveal three--that's right, three--new looks. They are all dramatically different, but all basically blond. "If I have blond hair, I attract attention," Madonna says, after repeated switches between light and dark. "Dark hair is for those times when I want to be anonymous."
