TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING?
More than a few femmes fatales have recently been caught in the dress of the moment—though fortunately not at the same party. Designed by France's Azzedine Alaïa, who knows his way around a curve, the foxy frock is a little ribbed rayon-and-Lycra number. "It perfectly shows a woman's body," says Faye Arabi, manager of the Alaïa boutique on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, where the 6' Brigitte Nielsen bought hers. "It's tight fitting and simple, with no shoulder pads or ruffles or anything, and it doesn't need any accessories. It makes a woman look like a million dollars." And for only $1,049!
KEN LOSES HIS HEAD
When M.C. Hammer signed with Mattel for an M.C. Hammer doll just before last month's toy fair in Manhattan, there wasn't much time to make a model to show retailers. It's rumored that Mattel put the rapper's head on a Ken body, but the company won't confirm it. "When we do prototypes, we look for existing materials to save costs," says a Mattel source. "The resculpted doll will look eerily like M.C. Hammer."
LIQUIDS OF THE FAMOUS
Jack Nicholson took his to the Grammys. Cindy Crawford was seen sipping at the airport. And Marlee Matlin wet her whistle at a movie premiere. Celebrities are publicly hitting the bottle—Evian, that is. The brand is "stepping into the trendy spot that Perrier held in the '70s and '80s," says Hellen Berry of the Beverage Marketing Corp. And how. "Models not only drink Evian but spray it on their faces to keep their skin moist." says model agency head Eileen Ford. "America has gone insane on the subject of health."
