"Say Goodby to Bullocks Wilshire" (Oct. 5)? You've got to be kidding! The flagship Bullocks Wilshire store to be known as I. Magnin? Impossible! A good alternative: The removal of Rose Marie Bravo as chairman and chief executive of I. Magnin. Obviously the lady knows nothing about merchandising. I have big news for Bravo. I. Magnin has nothing for people under 50! I don't like that store and I'm not alone! LIESA SCHILLER Los Angeles

The pretty people went all out dressing up for Barbara Davis' Carousel Ball for diabetes charities on Friday night. Vaults were cleared out for the evening--make that jewelry vaults, not fur. And, for a change, Los Angeles women abandoned their beloved rhinestones, sequins and beads for gowns of satin, chiffon and velvet. The big exceptions were the tiny rhinestone-encrusted handbags with four-figure price tags designed by Judith Leiber and clutched by nearly all.

In a season of narrow silhouettes, leggy short skirts and unforgiving unitards, there is one new look everyone can wear: an elongated jacket. Think of Janet Jackson in the knee-grazing, pin-striped gangster's jacket she wore for her "Alright" video this spring. Picture Kirstie Alley and the hip-wrapper jackets she's been wearing on "Cheers." Or Laura Dern, who was photographed at a movie premiere recently wearing a fingertip-length red jacket over Capri-length bicycle pants.
