Does this look like the face that wrecked a home? Thanks to a bottle of hair gel and a some lighter makeup, Miss Monica Lewinsky is no longer vampy and trampy, says hairstylist Joyce Kwiatkowski, of Giovanni and Pileggi at 17th and Walnut. HAIR: The staid, parted slicked-back do is reserved for women trying to look more conservative, smarter, more serious - less a vixen. EYES: Monica goes lighter on the makeup. This makes her look more child-like and innocent. LIPS: Blood-red has been replaced with the natural look, more pouty little girl than flirtatious intern.

This is the second in our traditional year-end series of commissioned poems based on recent Inquirer headlines. The article headlined "Makeover for a Kahn masterpiece" appeared Wednesday, Dec. 13, on Page C1. Where starlight consecrates a sky, stairwells and sheetrock load the silence in order to sleep a little. While asleep, it's hard to tell if we fail our surfaces, or whether the heart is just another flexible material. Whether a flower produces a faith in flowers, or in you, we might agree that every April culls its soreness from rough, oblique geometries.

The Grand Old Lady of Broad Street is taking a six-month vacation. The usual May and June graduation ceremonies will have to find other venues, because construction began yesterday on the sixth and final summer of the $35 million Academy of Music renovation project. This major construction, preparing the house for any type of road show, must be completed in time for the Opera Company's early-November production of "Carmen. " The work includes the fly-area modernization of the Academy, one of the last "hemp houses" in the country.

In their annual stocktaking, University City District officials last week made a compelling case for crowing about the West Philadelphia community that's home to universities, hospitals, and research and scientific enterprises. With multimillion-dollar projects like a new Hilton, hospital research towers, student housing, and the University of Pennsylvania's eastward expansion over 14 acres of former U.S. Postal Service parking along the Schuylkill, the neighborhood anchored by Penn, Drexel University, and 30th Street Station may be Philadelphia's busiest development hub. It's particularly exciting to see development like the Penn campus extension that helps to cement the link, both visually and physically, with Center City.

The business community in this 1.2 square-mile borough in southeastern Montgomery County has been dominated since the Depression by large, family-named storefronts: Santerian's, Jules Pilch, Gephart's. To bolster the tradition and ensure its survival, the borough, the Chamber of Commerce, and Main Street Hatboro began a revitalization push in 1997 aimed at drawing foot traffic - and accompanying wallets - back from shopping centers in Horsham, Willow Grove and Montgomery Township.

During the last couple of decades, the Mann Center for the Performing Arts has taken small stabs at freshening the experience - hiring a new food-service provider, installing a better sound system, giving itself a new name, handing out free paper "Mann fans" to help patrons paddle around the warm air. But in the last few months, while the Mann usually sleeps, something closer to real transformation has occurred. Architects from MGA Partners and construction workers have undertaken the Mann's most extensive makeover since the summer venue opened 30 years ago. Many visitors to the opening tonight of the Philadelphia Orchestra's 15-concert run at the Mann may not sense the difference: The hall and the stage are unchanged.

The trouble with nightclubs is that they turn from outstanding to outdated in the blink of an eye. Such was the case with the old Images Nightclub at the Woodbine Inn in Pennsauken, said nightclub manager Robert Terri, where the look had become, well, just too '80s for any self-respecting club in 1996. To keep afloat in the ever-changing world of entertainment, a full-scale makeover - with a $500,000 price tag - was ordered to create the new Club Metropolitan, a cutting-edge kind of place in a world where cutting edge counts.

If movies were life, every high school senior would live next door to her soulmate, ideally with her bedroom window facing his. This fantasy has surfaced lately both in the bitter allegory American Beauty and in the bubblegum comedy Drive Me Crazy, which stars TV demigoddess Melissa Joan Hart as Nicole, a cheerleader type who hasn't spoken to Chase, the grungehead next door, since they were 12. But when Nicole's scheme to land the school basketball...

The entire Council is expected to approve the measures before recessing for the summer on June 18. A supportive Mayor Nutter is also expected to approve the development deal. "I think this is going to provide shopping opportunities that have not existed in this city for a long time," Deputy Mayor for Economic Development Alan Greenberger said yesterday.

The Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust and the Macerich Co. say it will take $325 million in new investment to transform the Gallery at Market East into what they are calling Fashion Outlets of Philadelphia. That is on top of the $250 million already spent by PREIT to assemble what had been privately owned property in the project area, bringing the total development cost to about $575 million. The rest of the area still owned by the Philadelphia Redevelopment Authority will be conveyed to the developers as part of the revitalization plan being reviewed by City Council.

Bullet holes mar a shooting range in the basement. One dank room, according to a sign, is a vault for combat weapons. A silhouette of a lone soldier is painted on the stairwell wall. But when a group of West Chester residents enters the National Guard Armory, they see the arching, vaulted ceiling; the hall fit for a stage; the balcony that looks like it was made to be a light booth. They see a theater. "The first time I walked in, I went, 'This is a theater-in-waiting,' " said Tim Blair, dean of the College of Visual and Performing Arts at West Chester University.

Nearly a year ago, Rick Forman, chief executive of Forman Mills, was hunched over a toilet in his West Philadelphia store, wiping the bowl and trying to stay focused long enough to clean the bathroom without touching his mouth and jamming the mop handle into the wall. No one at the store knew that the inept janitor they called Brad Bandini was actually the owner of the company. They thought they were being filmed for a reality TV show, but had no idea the show was Undercover Boss on CBS-TV.

With a three-word declaration, Philadelphia City Council President Darrell L. Clarke put his strong shoulder behind the planned $325 million remake of the Gallery mall: "I support it. " His backing gave momentum to the project as it was introduced for consideration Thursday. The package of six bills and one resolution, about 700 pages of legislation, would give the developer a big tax break and get the city out of the mall business, transferring control of the property to the Pennsylvania Real Estate Investment Trust.

More off-putting than dark roots, unkempt cuticles, and a face in need of a good peel was the condition of the Biaggio Salon & Spa in Marlton when it wound up in court-appointed receivership in 2007. Checks to employees and vendors were bouncing, the landlord had begun eviction proceedings, and the company owned by Thomas J. Fabiani and his son Thomas M. was $1 million in debt. "Biaggio had such a dark cloud over it," recalled Kim Carulillo, who at the time was working the salon's front desk after a 12-year career as a paralegal left her wanting a more people-oriented job. Eight years later, a makeover of enormous proportions has turned a high-glamour business on the brink of failure into what industry players say is one of South Jersey's busiest salons.

Robert Holmes runs the methadone clinic across the street from the Gallery mall, and he's got news for those intent on building expensive condominiums and glittery stores in the Market East corridor: The clinic is staying put. He has an unbreakable lease that runs five more years. And patients who need help from Addiction Medicine & Health Advocates are best served at its current location, he said, near the nexus of the city's public-transportation system. "We're not going anywhere," said Holmes, the agency's executive director.

I'M NOT YET SURE which it will be, but in the near future, somebody either will lead a parade down Broad Street or a lot of guys will ride a midnight train out of Philadelphia. On Tuesday, in a transaction that cannot be officially announced until next week, newly anointed Eagles Chief Officer of All Things Football Chip Kelly traded Pro Bowl running back LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills for talented but injured linebacker Kiko Alonso. That move surprised Philadelphians just slightly more than Sixers Grand Pooh-bah of Basketball Matters Sam Hinkie trading point guard and reigning rookie of the year Michael Carter-Williams to Milwaukee for a protected first-round draft pick.
