Forget the convenience of panty hose. Young women today want garters and stockings--and they want them on full display. Either topped by a micro-mini skirt for a thigh with a view or under a sheer, flowing petticoat or tutu skirt, the garters-and-stockings look is de rigeur in all the hottest dance clubs. Shelly Jones, 21, assistant manager at Victoria's Secret Store in Woodland Hills, said she thinks rock 'n' roll has brought back the garter.

Guys who just days ago didn't have to worry about jail time if they took a picture of what's inside the skirt of a female passenger riding on a Boston trolley better think again after Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick on Friday signed a bill to prohibit “upskirting.” The bill banning upskirting -- the sneaky practice of taking a picture of what is usually hidden by a dress or skirt -- quickly sailed through the Massachusetts Legislature on...

Kanye West garnered attention at Wednesday's 12-12-12 benefit for Superstorm Sandy victims, not only for his performance but for the kilt-like skirt he wore.

[The Cut] Sarah Burton, creative director of Alexander McQueen and designer of the Duchess of Cambridge's fairy tale wedding gown, received an Order of the British Empire in ceremonies on Thursday at Buckingham Palace.

Julio Cesar Chavez's unanimous-decision victory over Brian Vera in September in Carson was so clouded by a travesty of weigh-in adjustments and dubious judging, a rematch is coming Saturday night in San Antonio on HBO. Chavez (47-1-1, 32 knockouts) made weight Friday, coming in a half pound under the super-middleweight limit of 168 pounds to avoid a possible fine that would've gone into Vera's pocket. Chavez gloated, bringing a giant check written for the agreed-upon penalty of $250,000, and wrote “VOIDED” across the front of it, handing it to Vera (23-7, 14 KOs)

Jennifer Hudson stopped by "Chelsea Lately" on Thursday and made quite an entrance. Just as the singer was sitting down to chat, the zipper on her black leather skirt gave way, nearly exposing way more than Hudson intended. Luckily, Handler was right there to save her, launching out of her seat and screaming, "Oh my God!" "We have to turn around!" she yelled as she rushed to Hudson's aid. PHOTOS: Hollywood Backlot moments But in her haste to prevent the image of too much Hudson leg from searing itself into the eyes of the audience, Handler almost made a bad situation worse.

Students and staff at a small Bay Area high school donned sarongs and skirts Friday to show support for their classmate whose skirt was set on fire as he slept on an Oakland bus. Luke "Sasha" Fleischman, 18, was asleep on the bus Monday when another teenager allegedly set his skirt on fire, authorities said. Fleischman suffered major second- and third-degree burns. "Within the last couple of days, the students got the idea to don skirts in support of Sasha," said Trevor Cralle, school director at Maybeck High School in Berkeley.

If women, even skirt-wearing women, would simply refuse to attend establishments that insist they show their legs, the issue would be settled in a hurry. Personally, I'd love to open a private club where the dress code for men is skirts (below the knee of course, in observance of good taste)--but who would come? ERICA FREED, Echo Park

Nina Perenna is a made-up name, the middle name of designer Sherry Salimpour paired with an ancient river in Greece. The 31-year-old designer liked the soft sound and the mystery of the name. Businesswomen and executive wives who buy the line, however, probably don't care what the label reads--they're drawn to the garment's classic design. "I don't believe a woman wants to pay $300 for a see-through skirt," Salimpour says. Her focus on reality over fashion fantasy extends to sizing as well.

From the look of the craftsy , unfinished-wood runway set, and meandering rows of brightly colored metal stools, it looked as if we were about to sit down to art class at the Celine show Sunday afternoon. Instead, designer Phoebe Philo showed one of the strongest collections of the season, touching on several ideas that have been in the air (including art inspiration, urban sportswear, even pleated skirts). The inspiration: Art in the streets. Placed on each seat was a booklet of images of graffiti taken by French photographer Brassai , and excerpted from the book "Pour L'Amour de Paris.

A city audit released Thursday reveals that the Port of Long Beach spent thousands of dollars subsidizing the travel of spouses who accompanied harbor commissioners on trips to Tokyo, Paris and Montreal despite city restrictions that ban such reimbursements. The audit, which targeted five of the most expensive trips in the last two years, found that commissioners were able to get around restrictions by booking “companion tickets” which billed the spouse's flight as “free” but actually built in the cost, sometimes more than doubling the original fare.

Michael Kors has the best one-liners in all of fashiondom to describe his inspirations. This season's? "Big Sur, Big City.

'Mad Men's' youngest star, 13-year-old Kiernan Shipka, is giving a big boost to reemerging Spanish brand Delpozo. She looks darling in this colorful, age-appropriate frock straight from the spring 2014 runway at New York Fashion Week. The dress has a flared silk print skirt with a hand-embroidered organza over-skirt, and a short-sleeved crewneck top with embroidered flowers. Shipka also wore Delpozo this weekend to the Vanity Fair/Maybelline AMC "Mad Men" party. The architectural, double-faced wool dress from the fall Delpozo collection by creative director Josep Font was quirky and cute.
