Who says horizontal lines are unflattering? These celebs (including one with a bump!) prove they can be as chic as the vertical kind

Behind the Seams
MYSTIC TANN: It's a given that celebs go gaga over anything that can evoke Zen-like calm. (Because, you know, they're really, really busy.) The latest addition to that niche is Tann Rokka's Kisu, a unisex fragrance inspired by Japanese bathing rituals. Gwyneth Paltrow, Madonna and Jude Law (whose sister Natasha created the artwork on the scent's box and bottle) have all snapped up the fragrance....

HAIR APPARENT: With a gaggle of Food Network shows and a new Oprah-anointed talkfest on her plate, Rachael Ray needs to make sure her hair can stand the heat. Literally. The perky host depends on N.Y.C. salon owner Rodney Cutler's straightening cream and protectant spray to keep her tresses smooth. (Teri Hatcher is also a fan.) Guess she can't depend on EVOO for everything....
Cutler Straightening Cream ($17) and Protectant Spray ($21); 212-308-3838.
OUT LIKE A L.A.M.B. Hit records, successful fashion lines, not to mention a husband and kid—is there anything Gwen Stefani can't do? "Oh, come on!" the star demurs. "It's all just flowing. I just look at it like whatever is meant to be is meant to be." Even so, Stefani couldn't help but be relieved to show her latest L.A.M.B. collection on Sept. 15 in New York. "I was pregnant when I was designing it, and that's such a strange mindset because you're very self-obsessed and very into the baby—it's hard to care about anything else," says Stefani. "Especially clothes, because your body is changing and clothes are so weird when you're pregnant. But I think it came together really good."

STARS DESIGN TEES THAT GIVE
A glittery list of celebs are participating in the Design A Cure campaign, which paired designers with a celebrity muse to create a charity tee that will be autographed and then auctioned on eBay Oct. 1 to Oct. 31. (Unsigned versions of each style will also be available at Fred Segal Fun.) Jennifer Aniston, Sheryl Crow, Cameron Diaz and Christina Aguilera are among the 23 participants. "When I got diagnosed, it introduced me to the concept of mortality," says Crow. "It's really important to reach women under 40."
Design A Cure tees (unsigned), $48 to $80; presentsforpurpose.com to view; available at Fred Segal Fun, 310-394-9814.

DETOURING FROM THE FRONT ROW, STARS AT OLYMPUS FASHION WEEK STRUCK A POSE FOR RENOWNED PHOTOG TIMOTHY GREENFIELD-SANDERS
There wasn't time for his usual pre-shoot cup of tea with his subjects, but Timothy Greenfield-Sanders still had a good time snapping pics of celebs attending Olympus Fashion Week Sept. 8-15. "The chance to shoot a lot of interesting people in a short time is always fun for me," says the veteran lensman. And while highlights of this season's batch are on these pages, Greenfield-Sanders has compiled shots from the last three seasons into LOOK: Portraits Backstage at Olympus Fashion Week (right), featuring casual poses from the likes of Lindsay Lohan and Katie Couric, who wrote an essay in the book. "Fashion people are extraordinary," says Greenfield-Sanders. "They are very driven and creative ... stylish or not, they try."
A portion of the proceeds from sales of Greenfield-Sanders's LOOK will benefit the Entertainment Industry Foundation's National Colorectal Cancer Research Alliance, which was co-founded by Couric. LOOK (powerHouse books), $39.95; amazon.com and bn.com.
