Standing out among the humdrum blues and pinks and pale yellows of the baby department is some-thing unusual from an unlikely source. Sheryl Lee Ralph, the newest addition to the cast of CBS' "Designing Women," recently appeared at the Nordstrom South Bay store to show off her new line for infants and children. Le Petit Etienne, named for the actress-designer's young son, features loose, one-size-fits-all clothes for toddlers in vibrant African-inspired patterns.

"Divas: Simply Singing" returned for its 13th annual installment Saturday night at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre. And the gowns, the glitter and the wigs were out in force as 15 attitude-laden divas displayed their wares on a stage filled with enough plants and trees to serve as the set for a "George of the Jungle" movie. Once again, the diva of all divas was Sheryl Lee Ralph, who founded and created the production, which donates proceeds to Project Angel Food and the Black AIDS Institute.

For much of the morning, Sheryl Lee Ralph has had a determined, don't-talk-to-me-unless-you-have-something-important-to-say look on her face. But this moment is different. Right now, Ralph is loose and smiling. "Everybody stop what you're doing for a sec and come close," Ralph says. "Y'all got to come close, you know I need that vibe."

The 25 best L.A. films of the last 25 years "Los ANGELES isn't a real city," people have said, "it just plays one on camera." It was a clever line once upon a time, but all that has changed. Los Angeles is the most complicated community in America -- make no mistake, it is a community -- and over the last 25 years, it has been both celebrated and savaged on the big screen with amazing efficacy. Damaged souls and flawless weather, canyon love and beach city menace, homeboys and credit card girls, freeways and fedoras, power lines and palm trees . . . again and again, moviegoers all over the world have sat in the dark and stared up at our Los Angeles, even if it was one populated by corrupt cops or a jabbering cartoon rabbit.

Why does Hollywood continue to underestimate audiences? I'm referring to the casting of Sheryl Lee Ralph in "Randall and Juliet," the remake of the French film "Mama, There's a Man in Your Bed" (Cinefile, April 22). The reason "Mama" is such a special movie is that actress Firmine Richard is a heavy woman, dark-skinned and not beautiful in a "Hollywood" way. Do the producers believe that American audiences will respond to the movie only if a thin and beautiful black woman plays the lead role?
