"In yet another twist in the escalating Marie Antoinette-ifying of Syria's first lady, Vogue magazine has removed from its Web site last year's highly flattering - and controversial - profile that hailed Asma as a conspicuously under-accessorized modern woman. ... The fawning 2011 Vogue purple-prose-and-photo spread ... coincided with the Syrian government's crackdown on anti-regime protesters. " - Annie Groer, Washingtonpost.com By Thomas Vinciguerra It is a few minutes past noon, and Eva Braun is scrambling around her gleaming Alpine kitchen, apologizing for not having lunch on the table.

No matter the style, men just want one feature in their jeans: comfort. That said, in this cold-weather season darker washes still reign supreme, as does a slimmer fit. No, we aren't talking jewel-hugging tight, but closer-to-the-body form fitting is preferred. However, if you must, super-slim cuffed is still fashionable, too, and - as evidenced by the plethora of guys in Philly who wear their pants hanging off their heinies - ultra baggy is not going away. (Much to many folks' despair.)

At 5 feet, 7 inches and 185 pounds, Mark Lee is a normal-sized guy. He has broad shoulders and he runs marathons, so he has a pretty athletic build. Lee, 33, is an attorney - they're some of the best-dressed men in Philadelphia. He likes to be dapper in the courtroom, so he makes a point of keeping up with the latest trends. For American men this fall, that's the slightly shrunken, heavily tailored suit a la Thom Browne, Ralph Lauren Purple Label, Samuelsohn, and Hugo Boss. In fact, you could say that this year's all-American look in menswear and sportswear is quite European.

For the second straight fall season, dress-up clothes rule. The look is based on the traditionals - tweeds, cashmere, stripes and fine plaids - but with ultramodern or homage-to-vintage twists in silhouettes (lean), accents (lime-green stripes in a dark suit) and accessories (cap-toe shoes). There's also a strong dash of the city-slick monochromatic, especially for nights - head-to-toe black or layered grays. Think investment banker, but one who has Gnarls Barkley on his iPod, lunches at Morimoto, and sips Patr?n on the weekend while wearing Hugo Boss' sleek, sharkskin jacket, a slim-cut shirt from Thomas Pink, and Prada jeans.

Three years ago, Laurel Grass said good-bye to Sesame Street for an office on Swede Street. Now on the fourth floor of the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, the stay-at-home-mother-turned-prosecutor has made more than a name for herself - she has created her own department. Grass, 40, who took an eight-year hiatus from the law to raise her four boys, recently was named head of the economic-crime unit of the District Attorney's Office. The unit was credited last week with cracking one of the county's largest credit-card theft rings.

The site: the swank Hugo Boss Men's Store at the Plaza at King of Prussia. The scam: Credit-card fraud, which police say was perpetrated by the shop's manager and junior partner, Michael T. Trefsgar, 36, of Collegeville. The take: More than $3,800 and some flashy threads. The catch: According to the store's senior partner, Norman Vosko, Trefsgar was not pocketing the proceeds or the clothes himself, and so may not be asked to leave the company after 13 years of service.
