-. V r jr. A ... J FASHIONS FROM y Jk - Lauren mixes cretonne and silk tweed (left); flaring T-shirt with sheeting skirt.. Hurray for Hollywood DF YOU LOVE orange and green together, you'll like Perry Ellis' spring things. If you're a 40s movie buff, you'll like it a little more fr r f : CEMC Mmcx dm. news Shape of things to come: Ellis' form-fitting sweater Ellis went to Los Angeles, and came back with the kind of clothes that would have made Grace Kelly happy. (They also delighted Mariel Hemingway, who was in his audience yesterday morning.) It's a jaunty collection, filled with such '40isms as the one-flower print-One giant rose, or poppy, or carnation per garment Beautiful blouses with big sleeves or halter necklines abound, along with some UCLA sorority girl getups of that era- puff-sleeve sweaters and short pleated skirts, worn West Coast style with belts and loafers as light as ballet slippers. Now, for fashion watchers, Ellis puts the final seal of approval on the . skin-tight little sweater pulled long over slacks (yup, that's what they are) or. more successfully, over matching miniskirts Ralph Lauren, like Calvin Klein, sees spring in black and white He does a lot of things, including one wonderful cross-over shirt, in plain white sheeting, which looks especially good with a short black linen wrap skirt or chalk-striped pants What holds this together are Lauren's rich-girl accessories: a wide brown alligator belt and alligator shoes, either flats, high and low. sling-backs or T-straps Most amazing were flaring, printed cotton T-shirts like the one drawn here. Almost everyone at the showing Wednesday evening wanted to own one. T-shirts being what they are. this is staggering. The other Lauren looks include separates and dresses in flowered cretonnes (like the slipcovers in an old beach house), silk tweed jackets with Norfolk backs, and white satin pants, coats and shirts These get mixed together pretty freely, and. often enough, it works quite well. Liz Rittersporn Dedicated: f room, I bachelor Evelyn Lauder 1 - Lori Singer Iman Douglas Fairbanks Jr. ' " " V- Warren Beatty 3 ''"'Ci?-"- S. .1 . 5 r Nancy Reagan r AST MONDAY WHEN President Reagan and I Mrs. Reagan visited Sacramento on a sen L3 timental journey, something happened that filled them with pride and touched them very much. Rafnrfi t Vi o lTkciHAnt cnnVo at o m fiinr ial1v nn 1 Vi o steps of the capitol, California Governor George Deukmejian took Jiim and Nancy on a little for-old-times-sake tour of the state capitol including the cabinet room. And that's where the surprise came in. On the wall was a shiny new bronze plaque dedicating the room to Ronald Reagan and nearby the President's official portrait, a copy of the one which hangs in another part of the capitol. The President has had a lot of honors heaped on his head, but this one really got to him. And what gets to him gets to Nancy but you knew that THE LATEST IN THE long string of Warren Beatty's conquests is beautiful actress Lorl Singer who was in "Footloose" and has just finished another flick in Europe Don't ask how long the friendship will last or how serious it is. It's enough that I'm telling you the answer to the question everyone in Hollywood has been asking. You see, Warren and Lori were at a Japanese restaurant, Sushi Ko, in Beverly Glen Center, the new active hanging out spot in L.A As they left the restaurant, several photog raphers began flashing away and yelling "Who's the girl. Warren?' Warren and Lori ducked back in. and minutes later he emerged alone, dashing to San Pietro's pizza place a few doors away where he must have called Lori. A few minutes later she came out of the sushi place alone holding get this a white napkin in front of her face and ran to Warren's limousine. Warren came out of the pizza parlor, got into the car and they drove off into the night Everyone in Hollywood has heard about the caper, but until this minute no one knew who the girl was I'm thrilled to bring you this stop-the-presses item. THE GREAT AMERICAN photographer Victor Skrebneskt was the guest of honor at a dinner party at Doubles given by Evelyn and Leonard Lauder of the cosmetics empire to celebrate Victor's more than 20-year association with Estee Lauder. He is responsible for the beautiful photographs of ravishing model Karen Graham and others who have appeared in Lauder ads over the years. Skrebneski's photographs are now on display in Bergdorf Goodman, and at the preview before the dinner party Karen Graham was also on display looking radiant in a vintage Norell camel suit with a jacket lined in gold sequins and a gold sequin blouse. Another beauty at the exhibit preview was Raquel Welch, just off a plane from London where she has been flogging her new beauty book. "I'm exhausted," Raquel said but she looked as fresh as an orchid. Half the town was at her big book party last night at Private Eyes where she looked as fresh as a tiger lily. Evelyn Lauder, wearing a beautiful black Given-chy encrusted with black paillettes and a black ribbon in her hair, sat her 77 guests at Doubles at black and white tables carrying out the theme of Skrebneski's black and white photography. The napkin rings were rolls of film, more black film edged the white tablecloths and there were white lilies 4n black vases running down the length of the tables. Silver frames by Cartier held the placecards, and dinner was a medley of salmon mousse, veal with wild mushrooms and passion fruit sorbet In the crowd were Ambassador and Mrs. Francis Kellogg (she upheld her best dressed reputation in a stunning black and white short silk dress by Givenchy and black and white satin pumps), Estee Lauder, who flanked Skrebneski on one side (Evelyn Lauder was on the other), models Iman and Diane DeWitt, Sharon (Mrs. James) Hoge. Rex Reed, the Ira Niemarks of Bergdorf Goodman, Nena and Andrew Goodman, Shirley Lord of Vogue and on and on into the night Skrebneski wore the nattiest blazer imaginable Maybe somebody should take his picture. DOUGLAS FAIRBANKS JR. is the honorary chairman of the big Wildlife Botanical Benefit for the Dreher Park Zoo at the Flagler Ballroom in Palm Beach on Nov 24. The co-chairmen are Mrs. Rolla Campbell Jr. and Mrs. Winston Guest Jr. (You don't have to be a Jr. to be a chairman, but it couldn't hurt) If you haven't even heard of the Dreher Park Zoo you are not alone. A jewel, practically unknown, it is a habitat for marvelous animals and wonderful tropical plants located just over the bridge from the Palm Beach Bath and Tennis Club. Still, if you ask anyone if they have been to the Dreher Park Zoo. the answer is: What zoo? The party, which boasts a committee of Bakers, Balcoms, Dudleys, Kelloggs and Wideners, V plans to correct all that
