In the Hollywood of the '50s, Sy Devore was the clothier to the stars. John Wayne, Count Basie, Rock Hudson and Elvis were a few of the regulars. Devore's was so well known that Bob Hope made the store the brunt of a joke in the late '50s: "In a very good year I have my choice between a Rolls-Royce, a new house in Beverly Hills or a suit from Sy Devore." Sy and his brother Al opened the original store on the corner of Vine and Sunset in 1944.

The conversation began: "Mr. Edwards? I'm Morgan Fairchild; I'm a great fan of yours." With that, the diminutive actress introduced herself to the male half of the shoe-designing team of Susan Bennis and Warren Edwards. He was at Neiman Marcus to launch the duo's first boutique outside their New York shop. Fairchild pulled a turquoise moccasin from a tote bag and pointed to a small hole. "My bunny took a bite out of it. He's very fond of your shoes," she explained.

A vintage poster of the Rat Pack--Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop--hangs at the Sy Devore store in Studio City. The debonair babe magnets are dressed in hip threads that made them the Mack Daddies of 1960s cool: sharkskin suits, skinny ties and tailored dress shirts. To look at the guys, you'd think they were decked out in the spare contemporary silhouettes of Prada. The fabrics are fine, the fit immaculate, details noteworthy.

They may not be bionic, but they're big. That's the general description of earrings selected for Lindsay Wagner recently at the New Stone Age gallery in Los Angeles. We hear that a stylist, working on a new Ford commercial, took two pairs for Wagner's consideration. The winner was a sterling silver, Southwestern-influenced design by Los Angeles artist Donna Darrow. The Silky Way Chinese fashion is not all Mao coats and Mandarin collars.

Marla Maples' publicist, Chuck Jones, may have a shot at "America's Funniest Home Videos." Seems Maples has been losing shoes at a fast clip--more than 100 pairs in the past few years. She installed a surveillance camera in her bedroom and fingered Jones as the thief Wednesday. When Jones was arrested at his mid-town Manhattan office, police recovered 30 pairs of Maples' shoes, three unlicensed handguns and copies of pornographic magazines, including one called Spike.

The most asked question by customers at Draper's and Damon's women's shop in Sherman Oaks Fashion Square during recent months hasn't been "How much is it?" Rather, it's been "How can you stand it?" The customers had been referring to the incessant pounding, whirring and hammering outside the store as the 26-year-old, open-air shopping center was slowly transformed into an enclosed mall in a $50-million expansion project that began in June, 1988.
