Some stores are demanding "wearable lengths" for spring, say L.A. designers whose clothes are shown here. David Hayes, for example, is shipping many skirts at 25 inches long (which is mid-knee for a Size 8, he explains). "We're sticking with a length that just grazes the knee. I think shorter skirts are peppy," he adds. Helga's bright cotton flower-print dress also hits the knee, as do most of her spring outfits.

An illegal immigrant who said he grew up a street urchin in a tough border town was sentenced to life in prison Monday in Los Angeles after pleading guilty to murdering five gay men in the late 1980s. Juan Chavez, 33, confessed to persuading five middle-aged men to take him to their apartments, where he tied them up and then strangled them. Though he told investigators he was angry that homosexuals were spreading AIDS, prosecutors said his motive was robbery--ATM cards, jewels and cars.
