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.

QUOTE "It prepares you for Hollywood, getting all those doors slammed in your face. " "Scary Movie" star Marlon Wayans, in Time magazine, on being raised a Jehovah's Witness Is there anybody you'd want in charge of your beauty makeover less than Cher? Sure, she's an expert, having had a few of her own. But imagine going in a normal-looking makeover candidate - perhaps slightly haggard, maybe with an outdated hairdo - and coming out stretched tight as a drum, sporting a fright wig and a new tattoo.

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...

In 1996, Toyota fielded the first compact crossover - the RAV4. Twenty years later, it has answered the question - what have you done for us lately? - by building a new all-wheel-drive hybrid RAV4 that qualifies as the highest mileage AWD vehicle you can buy (it has EPA mileage ratings of 34 city and 31 highway, not bad for a two-ton ride). The new hybrid, available only in two upmarket AWD models, arrives in a fourth-generation RAV4 that was redesigned for 2013 and underwent an extensive mid-cycle refresh for 2016.

The Pfc. Eugene A. Obregon is the latest military ship to arrive at Dry Dock No. 3 at the Philadelphia Navy Yard for a routine inspection and repairs. The 50,000-ton Obregon is longer than two football fields and vast enough for military vehicles to drive on and off. It's part of the U.S. military fleet that quickly transports tanks, trucks, humvees, and helicopters - and even ammunition - to troops around the world. Northeast Ship Repair, owner of Philadelphia Ship Repair and a second dock in Boston, won the bid to do the work.

In an announcement late Monday, the Wilma Theater announced the following big changes: a makeover, a name change, a fund-raising campaign, and the establishment of a permanent company. The theater's "Transformation Fund" has a stated target of $10 million. Main goals include redoing the Wilma lobby to include a cafe and a new second floor, and changes to the theater fa├žade. But they won't be taking down the familiar tall, squiggly, beribboned Wilma neon sign looking out over South Broad Street, inviting visitors to the theater since 1996.

Transforming the lackluster 175 acres roughly bounded by the Schuykill and Walnut, Spring Garden, and 32d Streets into a new, pedestrian-friendly community with offices, an expanded Drexel University, and housing is not just smart; it is inspired. The plan linking two of the city's most vibrant economic centers, University City and Center City, represents the kind of clear thinking that has been missing from past plans for the 30th Street Station area, among them covering the rail yard with a baseball stadium, convention center, or amusement park.

DELAWARE COUNTY Parks to get makeovers UPPER DARBY Three Upper Darby Township parks are to get a makeover, thanks to a $10,000 grant. The parks - Guilford Road Park, Aberdeen Road Park and Michele Park - are all in the southeast section of the township. Funding is to allow for improvements that could include pathways, benches, lighting, plantings, and gazebos. Mayor Thomas N. Micozzie said that open space preservation is a priority because there "are very few opportunities, if any, to purchase or develop new recreational space.

The Wayne Junction railroad station, straddling the line between Germantown and Nicetown, was once one of Philadelphia's gateways to the larger world. Constructed in 1901 by the Reading Railroad, the station offered service to New York City, Washington, and points west during its heyday and, according to SEPTA, advertised that "more trains stop here than at any other station in the world. " The Baltimore & Ohio Railroad stopped offering passenger service from Wayne Junction to major cities in 1958.

Chip Kelly shook Tom Coughlin's hand after a Week 17 win over the New York Giants last December and ran off the field through a North Jersey chill accepting an even colder reality: The Eagles finished a respectable 10-6 for the second consecutive season, but they were not good enough. Not good enough to make the postseason. Not good enough to contend for a Super Bowl. Not good enough for Kelly. "Ten and six, not going to the playoffs, is just like being 4-12," Kelly said. He knew right then that the Eagles needed to improve.

In two short years, Chip Kelly has remade the Eagles offense, but the most significant turnover has occurred at the wide receiver position. Not even the changes at quarterback can compare because Kelly wasn't saddled with a large contract or a difficult free agency decision. But there aren't many coaches or general managers or whatever you want to call Kelly nowadays - Lord Commander? - who would have parted with Pro Bowl receivers in successive years, especially game-breakers such as DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin, who are capable of stretching a defense.

A PACKAGE OF legislation required to make the multi-million-dollar renovation of the Gallery mall a reality was passed by a City Council committee yesterday. 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.
