OAKLAND -- The Lakers hold a 56-48 halftime lead Wednesday over the Golden State Warriors, pelting them with a steady barrage of Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol at Oracle Arena. Bynum had 23 points on nine-for-11 shooting in the first half of what could be the Lakers' last game without the injured Kobe Bryant. Bryant worked out before the game and appears ready to return Friday against San Antonio. He has missed seven games because of a sore left shin. Gasol had 12 points, six rebounds and five assists in the first half as the Lakers (39-23)

OAKLAND -- Kobe Bryant missed a seventh consecutive game because of a sore left shin but moved closer to returning after completing running and jumping exercises without feeling pain. If Bryant does not feel discomfort Thursday, he could return Friday against San Antonio. "There's a chance," Lakers Coach Mike Brown said. "I'll probably be on the floor next game," Bryant added to ESPN's Ric Bucher. Several hours before Wednesday's game against Golden State, Bryant took dozens of shots and underwent a workout that included some full-speed running.

It's difficult to imagine any woman dressed in shorts, or a short unitard, on a winter day in New York or Paris. But the idea makes such good sense here, it's as if designers worldwide had Southern California in mind. In Paris, Emanuel Ungaro and Jean Paul Gaultier offer distinctly different versions of winter-weight shorts.

Demi Moore has dipped her toes back in the Twitter ocean after more than three months away, and though she's using same handle, the actress may very well be hinting at a new incarnation of @mrskutcher on the horizon. Actually, what might be most revealing about the self-portrait that heralded her return -- with the simple caption, "Testing ... " -- is how unrevealing it was. Classic @mrskutcher could be seen tweeting herself out to the world in all her bikini-clad glory, or sharing a peek at her back view unclad in the bathroom, naked down to her waist.
Thierry Mugler has a motto: "Too much is just enough." And he pushes it to the limit in his spring 1991 fashion collection. His show was the first to get people talking during a week of ready-to-wear collections that ends Wednesday. With Madonna and Grace Jones in the audiences Thursday night, and with Diana Ross and Mick Jaggar's daughter, Jade, modeling, Mugler's newest styles had some tough competition. But they were up to the challenge.

These are not the results of a survey. This is not GQ ? it might not even be PC. This is one man's list of the Southland's 50 all-time "coolest" athletes based on a half-century of marinating in the local sauce. Your definition of cool should differ. You can be cool and great, to me, but also great and not cool. What did you bring to the game other than a jump shot? Cool is often what is left unsaid ? nuanced in countenance and cadence. It doesn't generally refer to itself in the third person.

Dear Fashion Police: This is the third or fourth spring season that I've noticed predominantly short shorts in the stores. Am I the only gal who can't let it all hang out? I actually have pretty slim legs, but they ain't what they used to be, and I am desperate to cover them from the knee up. Do the designers really want to see our cellulite and varicose veins? Also, car seats get hot in the summer, and it's nice to have some protection for the back of the leg. Can you please ask the designers what they're thinking?

Get ready to grow accustomed to this face. Eliza Doolittle, who will perform at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on April 15, is on the crest of a new wave of Brit pop princess to hit stateside. And there's something about her quirky style that just makes you smile. With sunny, upbeat hits like "Skinnygenes," "Rollerblades" and "Pack Up,' comparisons to Lily Allen are inevitable. (Both attended Bedales School in Hampshire, England.) But Doolittle—born Eliza Caird (Doolittle was a school nickname that stuck)

Ladies, please step away from the seamstress shears! Put those scissors down! Fashion observers want you all to know: Just because Jessica Simpson looks amazing in her Daisy Duke short shorts in the "Dukes of Hazzard" movie, which opened last Friday, that doesn't mean you should run right out and buy a pair or hack up your favorite hip-huggers trying to make some. Let's face facts. Simpson, 25, looks delectable in just about anything. Some of the rest of us? Eh. Not so much.
