After the undue pressures and expectations projected onto the nuptials of Prince Charles and Diana Spencer, the union of Prince William and Kate Middleton is being treated with a certain calm restraint by both the bride and groom and the royal watchers who chronicle the couple's every move. Still, the wedding is the social event of the year, if not the decade. Hugo Vickers, who has tracked the British royal family for decades, offers the ultimate TV guide to the ceremony.

HOW IS THE BRIDE ARRIVING?
Kate is to travel by car to Westminster Abbey, accompanied by her father, who presumably will be wearing a morning coat, with tie. (For the few parental words delivered outside his Bucklebury home after the November engagement announcement, Mr. Middleton eschewed a tie.)

In October of last year, Lindsay Lohan unveiled her first, and only, ready-to-wear collection as the artistic adviser of French fashion house Emanuel Ungaro. She had been hired to scatter a bit of youthful insouciance upon a label that, in its Seventies heyday, had taught the ladies of Paris how to wear fuchsia.

"As you continue to use it, it gets better," Kenig insists. "I don't think any single comb on this planet works better with dry hair." $5.99 each; rickycare.com
