"We were working hard to get the place clean, at least," Marcella Lindeberg says. She is standing in a gutted studio with her husband, Johan, surveying their new design dominion a few blocks from Staples Center and directly above the rumbling Blue Line. Inside, there are high ceilings, exposed beams, chipped paint and stains of indeterminate origin on the brick walls. Depending on the designer, the disrepair could be on purpose. But with these two, you know they've got a swank showpiece in mind.

Celebrity clothing brands have become a ubiquitous force in fashion, but this wasn't always the case. A decade ago, attaching a famous name to a mass-market brand was still fairly rare and was seen by some as a last alternative when movie scripts and TV offers slowed down. But now it's not only acceptable, it's almost expected. Some celebrities are serious about fashion, such as designer-actresses Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, whose multiple lines include the Row and Elizabeth and James, and singer-actor Justin Timberlake, who has William Rast.

THE Hollywood Film Festival's Hollywood Awards is the kickoff for the awards season, the first gala where nomination-seekers press the flesh. But it's all very discreet because the awards aren't on live TV. Also, winners know they're getting an award. What a relief!
