Hold the starch and unplug the iron. The most carefree summer clothes are meant to look wrinkled. Gauzy, loose-fitting skirts, tops and trousers take on extra-casual flair when they're made from natural fibers--silk, flax, cotton, wool--that tend to pucker or crease on their own. No need to worry when packing for vacation. Just wad up your wardrobe, then grin and wear it. . . .styled by Polly Hoyt; hair and makeup: Lisa Jayne Storey/Visages Style L.A.

Here's a salute to another classic: Neutrogena's long-lasting Lip Life Lipstick. Developed in the '40s, when indelible lipstick was popular, it comes in two shades--vivid Lip Life Red and a hot pink called Lip Life Blue (which is white in the tube and turns color after you apply it). If your drugstore doesn't carry Lip Life, write Neutrogena Consumer Affairs, P.O. Box 45062, Los Angeles, CA 90045. The cost: $5.45 a tube, plus handling.

Patti Davis' "musing" was a hoot ("My Own Muse," Style, Feb. 16). Like e-mail spelling, real style is knowing all the rules and then breaking them on purpose. Over the years Davis has proven that if you don't take yourself too seriously, no one else will either. Being able to go her own way and laff at herself proves that she has style to squander. And that should be good enuff to satisfy any of her critics! Carol Nahin Palm Desert

Bouncy ringlets. A swooping French twist. S-shaped pin-curls. Hairstyles of a bygone era? Not exactly. Thanks to a pendulum swing in fashion back to ladylike clothes ? and a national love affair with the manicured, retro-'60s looks of cable show "Mad Men"? "done" hairdos are back in vogue. So much so that they're making the loose, untamed manes of the last decade look dated. On Hollywood's red carpets, where runway trends often make their first appearance in the real world, ballet buns, topknots and tidy, teased coifs have replaced the requisite low, slightly messy chignons that have reigned for years.

Tegan and Sara's "Heartthrob" presents a believably irregular vision of how love happens, and does it with an immediacy and a directness that feel new for these Canadian twin sisters, who have built a devoted following of indie-minded fans. In "Goodbye, Goodbye" and "Drove Me Wild," they trade homey folk-pop guitars for sparkling new-wave synths, while "How Come You Don't Want Me" rides an '80s-style drum-machine beat reminiscent of the Human League hit that almost shares its title. Club Nokia, 800 W. Olympic Blvd., L.A. 9 p.m. Fri. $39.50-$49.50.

Actors, filmmakers and other invited guests converged on the Culver Plaza Theatre in Culver City on Wednesday for the opening of the Pan African Film Festival, which this year features 121 films from 31 nations. Nate Parker ("The Great Debaters") hosted the first screening, "35 and Ticking," a film by radio personality Russ Parr. Before joining the crowd, Parker said he credited his recent discovery of his Cameroon ancestry as one reason he wished to participate in the festival. "This event celebrates African Americans and African connections," he said.
