The Laguna Art Museum morphed into an exclusive hot spot Tuesday night when sportswear company Hurley held its spring preview fashion show there. Upstairs in the museum library, all was calm as the models got ready. Genevieve Morrison read the newly released Harry Potter book while waiting for her makeup, and a fellow model caught up on homework. But the atmosphere downstairs was frenetic; a deejay spun tunes as hundreds lined up at a mojito bar. Servers hand-passed mashed potato martinis and cheeseburgers.

Suzie Harrison To determine the highest quality of a diamond there are the four Cs -- clarity, color, cut and carat, however not every measure of quality is as clear. To determine what is best for going back to school and fall fashions does involve the application of Cs, but only by three -- cool, cooler and coolest. Ryan Raffo, 11, is not of the follower mentality; rather he thinks each person should find their own style. "When you're getting clothes, get your style -- try stuff on, get what you want," Ryan said.

The show opened with a design by jewelers Barbara Hendricks and last year's inaugural show winners.

Leslie Christen started confusing her family early. Some days she'd wear mismatched shoes or pants and shirts with clashing patterns. But she was also likely to pick a dress and pair it with a headband and loafers. "I might not have really understood what styling was, but I knew it was what I wanted to do," she said. "I was a real risk-taker ... discovering who I was through [clothes], and I viewed it as being a artist. " The Laguna Beach resident and veteran fashion stylist flaunts a more classic style now, but she's not above putting together an edgy ensemble as a throwback to her childhood.

Michael Graham was on the wrong kind of a roll. Since 1993, he'd applied for various public art opportunities in and around Laguna Beach - 10, to be exact. Invariably, he'd make it to the finals, right to the cusp of victory, before being turned away. Until last year. The Laguna Hills resident was tapped by Laguna Beach's Arts Commission to install a temporary exhibit at the site of a red British telephone booth on Forest Avenue. Graham was one of several artists whose proposals aimed at revamping the K6 phone kiosk, modeled after Sir Giles Gilbert Scott's 1935 creation.

LAGUNA BEACH - A game-winning drive in the closing minutes Friday made the Laguna Beach High football team the most victorious team in program history. When quarterback Larry Stewart hit receiver Jake Hexberg with a 12-yard touchdown pass with just four seconds remaining, it lifted host Laguna to a thrilling, 28-21 victory over Northwood at Guyer Field. The triumph in the quarterfinal round of the CIF Southern Section Southern Division playoffs did two things: it put the Breakers into next week's semifinals where they will face Garden Grove on Nov. 23, and moved them to 11-0-1 on the season.

Forget high fashion. Reused and recycled couture were the talk of the town Saturday at the Festival of Arts' fourth annual fashion show. Twelve artists created dramatic fashions out of cardboard, newspaper, old pot scrubbers, CDs, music tape - just about any recyclable item. Festivalgoers were stunned with the finished creations and were often heard murmuring "wow" and "oh" throughout the show. There was the "Light Bulb Moment" design, which was made from "corrugated cardboard found in a local dumpster at midnight," according to the artist, Dagmar Chaplin.
