If several years of riotous color and digital prints in fashion has you seeing spots, and punk rock is not your thing, going back to black (and white) could be a welcome palette cleanser. What started last season on the spring runways with Marc Jacobs' graphic black-and-white nod to Mod has exploded into a full-blown craze for fall. New takes on this neat and tidy look include black-and-white ear cuffs from Roberto Cavalli, fur booties from Isabel Marant and even jeans from 3x1. But nobody did it better than Alexander Wang with his debut collection for Balenciaga, where he cast everyday wardrobe staples in the two most basic of hues - a black pencil skirt with silver clasps at the waist, a crisp white shirt with vent details at the shoulders and a pair of black boots with silver hardware, for example - and elevated them to classics, proving that some things do look better in black and white.

Roberto CAVALLI knows how to dress up a party. His new collection for H&M is a lineup of pieces that make for an unapologetically sexy mix of glamorous and and well-cut designs, with an ample supply of his signature animal prints. The women's line evokes visions of Bianca Jagger backlighted by flickers of a spinning disco ball while partying with the guitar strumming glamazons in Robert Palmer's "Addicted to Love" video. This is a good start for New Year's Eve planning.

With a slick telefonino or cell phone in one hand, a smoking pipe in the other and beautiful models around him, Roberto Cavalli, Italy's flash daddy of fashion, looks picture-perfect for Hollywood. In a Hef kind of way. That's his plan, to take Tinseltown by storm, the designer said backstage before his show last week at the Fiera, the mega-convention center here.

Blaring on the Dolce & Gabbana soundtrack, "SexyBack" by Justin Timberlake summed up fashion week here where the runway parade of pushed-up breasts, G-strings, bronzed legs and butt cheeks left only one thing on everyone's minds. Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana's collection of vinyl corsets, cellophane-like bow-tie blouses and barely there miniskirts was the high-priced escort to their two-bit-hooker D&G show.

Comfort, familiarity and nostalgia were the watchwords coming out of the fall-winter 2009-10 men's collections in Milan last week, a not-unexpected response to the great gray swirl of unknowns surrounding the global economic free-fall. Indeed, shades of gray carried the day, though the somber hues were punctuated with pops and dollops of reds that spoke to the hope of brighter days ahead.

Kate Moss is back at work after checking out of an Arizona rehabilitation clinic last month. The 31-year-old British supermodel entered the Meadows clinic outside Phoenix after photos allegedly showing her snorting cocaine were published in a British tabloid in September. Moss left the clinic in late October. She spent two days on the Spanish island of Ibiza last week for a photo shoot for Roberto Cavalli, according to a statement issued through her London spokesman.

Oscar photographs: In some editions of Monday's Calendar, a photograph with an article about the backstage scene at the Oscars said that it showed Jack Black with a stage director. Black was with the telecast's producer, Laurence Mark. And a caption on a photograph of "Slumdog Millionaire" director Danny Boyle being congratulated after the show said he was being embraced by his wife. She is his ex-wife. Also, a photograph of Kate Winslet, Sean Penn and Penelope Cruz on the section cover was credited to Los Angeles Times photographer Jay L. Clendenin, but the picture was taken by Times photographer Lawrence K. Ho. And with the article about red carpet fashions, the photograph of actress Taraji P. Henson wearing a Roberto Cavalli gown should have been credited to Times photographer Bryan Chan, not Wally Skalij.

Gisele Bundchen tops Forbes.com's list of the world's richest models, earning $33 million in the last 12 months. The Brazilian supermodel strutted past the likes of Kate Moss, who came in at No. 2 with $9 million, and Heidi Klum, who placed third on the list with $8 million. Bundchen, 26, parted ways with Victoria's Secret in May and will see her lucrative contract with the lingerie brand expire at the end of the year.
