Trendy teen togs

Advertiser Staff and News Services

Here's what your favorite teen hipster probably is wearing now, according to popular retailer Delia's:

Stevie Nicks' castoffs: Velvet, lace, satin and brocade are big, as are little prints. Tops and coats are worn close to the body, but skirts flow freely for maximum twirlability. Distressed-o-rama: Weathered, faded velour or French terry sportswear mixed with denim and corduroy. Laid-back cool: Fleece or other comfy fabrics in drawstring sweats mixed with vintage print T-shirts.

Coffee, tea or 'Link'

Grace Lee
Grace Lee, an Aloha Airlines flight attendant who flies Mainland routes, will be a contestant on "The Weakest Link," at 3 p.m. Tuesday on KHNL-8. "I'm not a nervous person, but it was nerve-wracking," said Lee. "I know all the answers at home, but there ... it was something else. Also, I was the first contestant (the one at the left on camera), so that made me nervous, too."

Lee was one of six flight attendants (three female, three male) appearing on the NBC show's Hard at Work Week. The episode was taped last August. "They wanted to fly me to the NBC studios in Hollywood and I could go free (as an airline employee). But they sent me a ticket anyway. On Delta." She'll be at a "Weakest Link" viewing party among friends when the show airs. "I can't reveal what happens," she said, "but I think I did pretty good."

That Magic touch

Earvin "Magic" Johnson
Basketball great Earvin "Magic" Johnson is getting back into the TV game after fouling out in 1998 with his talk show, producing and occasionally appearing on the MTV reality show "Who's Got Game," documenting the lives of 12 street basketball players competing for a $100,000 prize. Johnson said he's trying to play to his strengths as an athlete after trying to be a comedian-interviewer on his own late-night talk show: "This is what I'm all about: basketball. I grew up playing street basketball. I wasn't myself in 'The Magic Hour.' " The summer series will eliminate players after each show and the final episode will be a one-on-one competition.
