For the past quarter century, photographer ROXANNE LOWIT has shot iconic backstage photographs of the most glamorous fashionistas, actors, and models in the world. For the August 2002 issue of this magazine, Lowit photographed a pair of young actors and their friends as they enjoyed the entertainment of a burlesque house, in this month's fashion feature, "Doggy Style," which begins on page 110, the photographer took on an even more formidable world of glamour: the Westminster Dog Show.

OUR SEMIANNUAL STYLE ISSUE in March featured a leonine Benicio Del Toro on the cover. But the story that drew the most attention was Thomas P. M. Barnett's provocative essay “The Pentagon’s New Map.” Barnett, an adviser to the Office of the Secretary of Defense, argued that the regions of the world most resistant to the influence of globalization (the Gap) are also the most dangerous trouble spots.

Shocking but true: The most seductive thing about this actress is not visible in this photo. Look all you like. Look closely. You still won't see it. That's because what makes Ms. Sanchez so enticing isn't something you can tan, tone, or barely conceal behind a tasseled suede jacket—it's her guts.

FARTHER SOUTH, DOWN NEAR KINGSVILLE, they herd the antelope by helicopter, then swoop low and drop each animal with a single bullet from the sky. But here in the cedarshrouded Hill Country northwest of San Antonio, Mike Hughes likes to harvest by pickup truck.

Pennsylvanians harvested half a million deer last winter (not including roadkill), so they know their venison. They also know what to drink after the shooting stops: Storm King Stout, which has warm coffee flavors and a silky texture. And since it's available in 12 states, you don't have to hunt the hills of Pennsyltucky to find it 610-873-0881; victorybeer.com.

MY EDITOR ASKED ME TO WRITE THIS REVIEW STONED. But, dude, this is not a stoner book. Eric Schlosser's Reefer Madness (Houghton Mifflin, $23) marches forward with clear eyes and a sober face, ready to do its civic duty. For example: "Two decades after the latest war on drugs was declared, some rough numbers may hint at its cost: billions of dollars spent so far at the state, federal, and local levels to fight marijuana; ten million Americans arrested for marijuana offenses; about a quarter of a million people convicted of marijuana felonies and sent to prison for at least a year."

Sure, when the bulk of your motor sports consists of crawling the Beltway at 8:15 A.M., these become superfluous. But when you're racing along the autostrada in your new Alfa to meet your beautiful, impatient signorina, you want the wheels to stick to the road, the car to stick to the wheels, and your hands to stick to the car.

<p>ANDY WARHOL’S STAR is fairly dim these days, but the Warhol prediction that gave the movie 15 Minutes its title is still the most overquoted aphorism in media history, which is why I’ve just avoided requoting it. However, it’s also the most (deliberately?) misconstrued, because a future in which we each get our turn with the paparazzi wasn’t Warhol’s idea of a nightmare; it was his idea of the promised land.</p>

<p>SCOTT RUDIN is not feeling the love. Almost every morning throughout the anxietyfilled Oscar campaign, he has picked up the papers and decided that he’s getting shorted again. There are little black-and-white ads for his movie, The Hours, while other studios have bought big, splashy spreads for their contenders.</p>

1. Being taken to Costco does not constitute a date. Unless, of course, you call on Wednesday and ask us to go to Costco on Saturday. Do that and you can buy all the bulk you want. 2. Occasionally tell a funny girl you love her for her looks, and a pretty girl for her brains.

AS EASY AS IT IS TO blame record companies for slumping sales and rampant file-sharing, I like to blame musicians. They’re the ones driving us to download by aiming for the lowest common denominator and having the balls to call it art. Isn’t it ironic that Bono and Don Henley like spending time on Capitol Hill, but if Congress ever held a subcommittee hearing on current albums actually worth buying, neither would be asked to attend?

THE GREAT LUCINDA WILLIAMS has a new album, World Without Tears, and at least one devoted fan at Esquire wants to weep. An open letter to a fallen hero: Lu, we need to talk. I love you, I do. But you've been acting so weird lately. Last summer, when I saw you in New York, I mean, Christ, you rapped half your new songs.

WHEN IT COMES to playing the aging game, what matters is “How are you doing so far?” The only way to stay, not necessarily young, but younger, is to start early and check yourself in the mirror along the way. But it’s about more than just looks; it’s taking your score on everything from how long you can hold your breath to how big your balls are.

<p>AS HE FOUGHT to reach the finals of the 2003 Australian Open at the relatively advanced tennis age of thirty-two, Andre Agassi knew at least one part of his anatomy wouldn’t let him down: his legs. He’d had a few infuriating wrist injuries, and the punishment of stop-start, “high-impact” footwork over two decades had taken its toll on his wheels before.</p>

GEORGE BURNS was booked for his hundredth birthday. Sure, he couldn’t keep the date, but his last gig was at ninetyeight—andhe never forgot a joke. Fadingmemory, you’ll not soon forget, is a key to gauging how well your brain will age. So are changes in the senses: Taste buds devolve slightly; sight, hearing, and olfactory sensors slacken; even touch goes a bit awry.

WHEN HUGH GRANT, at forty, finally decided to trim his trademark foppish hair, much hoo-ha was made over how young and “fresh” it made him look. Maybe he did it to boost his box office, but other Hollywood types said non: He wanted to take some of the focus off his face— his sun-sheltered British-bred face—which is finally getting crinkly and will always be three years older than Brad Pitt’s.

On these pages lies all the right stuff. We start with the three basic colors (black, dark brown, and cordovan) and the three classic models (lace-ups, loafers, monk straps).
