When Michael Caine goes off and makes movies, his wife of 17 years, Shakira, doesn't stay home playing the role of the stereotypical Hollywood wife. Several years ago, after seeing an exhibit of royal costumes of India organized by the late Diana Vreeland at the Metropolitan Museum in New York, Caine, a former Miss Guyana and second runner up to Miss World, went to India to check out the jewels for herself. "Being Indian, I was inspired by all the Mogul jewelry," she says.

Most of the year, Irving (Swifty) Lazar is a literary agent. On Oscar Night, though, he and his wife, Mary, throw the party of the year at Spago. It's no longer the only bash in town, but it's still the biggest stop for the biggest stars. And everyone wants in. Ask Maury Povich of "A Current Affair," who arrived with wife Connie Chung.

Joan, let's talk. We watched Joan and Melissa Rivers' Oscar preshow on E! (Hey, we do have taste--we watch "The Sopranos" too.)

The opening of Hollywood Park on Wednesday brought out all the potential winners, including this year's really fun couple--the devastatingly slim and pretty Elizabeth Taylor and her buddy, pretty and slim Michael Jackson.

L.A.'s menswear look is traveling around the world. Sophia Loren's sons, Carlo Ponti Jr., 18, and Eduardo Ponti, 15, recently hopped down to Bell Gardens, no less, to visit Zeppelin, which sounds like a band, but it's really a clothing firm.
