Nut that Pileggi is against longer skirls in themselves. ."If the women want them, they'll wear them." he said philosophically, "and .50 long as they don't drop too far below the c:Mi it's alright" But. he scolded, the hair can't be worn long at Hie same time without giving the drooping, wilt- I ed, caughl-in-the-rain look.

"The important thing to remember, 1 l-.e .said, "is that n lady's neck should be seen—especially with , so mush of the rest of her covered m> by dresses.
