Later this month, Angelenos will have an opportunity to hear fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg and W magazine editor Stefano Tonchi rap about the wrap dress. That's rap as in "having a conversation" -- as opposed to the spitting of rhymes (though one can always hope for a little off-the-cuff musical improvisation, no?). This particular conversation, organized by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's Costume Council, is scheduled to take place at LACMA's Bing Theater on Jan. 13, and is being presented in conjunction with "Journey of a Dress," an exhibition celebrating the iconic wrap dress' 40th anniversary that will be on view from Jan. 11 through April 1 at the Wilshire May Co. building adjacent to LACMA.

We wanted to drive our own car in Europe, so we bought a car through Europe Auto Travels. Included in the purchase price was a personalized guidebook. This book gave exact routing and suggested sights for our entire five-week trip. It's Europe Auto Travels, 9367 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills 90210. The trip was wonderful and we did not make wrong turns. SKIP and BEA KEITH Pacific Palisades
