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.

Dear Fashion Police: My dear husband has great legs! I have searched high and low to find good short shorts in corduroy or denim--classy ones--in white, gray or light blue. I'd like them with a 3-inch (or less) inseam. It seems that most all shorts are walking shorts, with a 6- to 9-inch inseam. Women can find short shorts easily. It's not fair! --SHORT SHORTLESS IN SEATTLE Dear Shorty: We are happy that you're so fond of your husband's legs you want to see them in short shorts.

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.

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.

The naked truth, the sheer fact, the transparent motive and other French fashion mysteries will be exposed this spring. Transparent clothes--from icy-colored organza shirts by Claude Montana to punched black leather tops by Christian Dior to perforated paper dresses by Comme des Garcons--were part of every Paris collection. Montana did it best with his see-through, man-tailored shirts, big enough to wear as coats over short body dresses or Capri-length pants.
