AMERICAN EXPRESS GOT A CHARGE

American Express has a request for costume designer Lizzy Gardiner, who took Karl Malden's advice to the extreme and left home wearing 254 Gold Cards.

Gardiner, who won an Oscar for Best Costume Design for the Australian film "The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert," sashayed up to the stage decked out in a chain-mail-and-armor style ankle-length gown made of cards imprinted in her name.

An American Express spokesman, Di Collins, said today that the company would like to have the dress as a "fun item."

Collins said Amex issued the 300 cards as a loan. After all, the fine print on the back of each Gold Card says, "This card is the property of the issuer and must be returned upon request."
