DRESS TO IMPRESS: In Houston, Clifford Pugh reports the fashion competition at the Beijing Games "seems especially heated, as clothing manufacturers use the games to introduce themselves to China's vast, increasingly prosperous population." U.S. athletes' outfits were designed by Ralph Lauren and the "closing ceremony outfits and Village attire are already available at Macy's and other outlets," ranging from $49.50-165. However, athletes "won't be the only ones in designer wear." Ports 1961 "will dress four female NBC commentators for the games" -- Mary Carillo, Melissa Stark, Alex Flanagan and Lindsay Czarniak. All four "will wear casual sportswear in muted colors of gray and beige" (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 8/7).
