What to avoid this fall

September 16, 2001


Not everyone can look like People's "glamour girls" Julia Roberts, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Nicole Kidman, who are all on the magazine's best-dressed list. But West Coast style editor Steven Cojocaru and other magazine staffers offer the "seven deadly sins" that anyone can avoid.

Don't wear pantyhose with open-toe shoes.

Don't mismatch daytime and nighttime looks, and colors that don't complement each other.

Don't wear socks with sandals.

Do get adequate support by wearing a proper-fitting bra.

Don't wear too-short pants.

Do shave your underarms if you're a woman and you live in the United States.

Don't show visible panty lines, especially in body-hugging garments.

Di's gowns coming home

Princess Diana's dresses are coming home.

The gowns she put up for auction in 1997 will be displayed in a new exhibition at Kensington Palace, where Diana once lived.

The 14 dresses including a midnight blue evening gown she wore to a gala at the White House where she danced with John Travolta were sold in a 1997 auction that raised $3.26 million for AIDS and cancer charities, two months before the princess died in a Paris car crash.

Maureen Rorech-Dunkel bought the gowns, which have been shown around the world, including a six-month exhibition at Kensington Palace in 1999 and 2000.

The dresses, mostly by British designers, will be displayed permanently in the lower hall of the palace's state apartments starting in February.
