Halle Berry gets pulses racing in a Matthew Williamson dress and belt while in N.Y.C. to present a check to the American Heart Association.

Britney Spears ordered three diaper bags from Chase's Closet (a Houston, Texas, boutique co-owned by TLC's T-Boz) and had them personalized with photos of her and hubby Kevin Federline. The mama-to-be sent three different images (including this one) so the little one can enjoy fresh diapers and fresh pics of the folks....

Daisy Duke (a.k.a. Jessica Simpson) needs little by way of chest adornment. But The Dukes of Hazzard costumer Genevieve Tyrrell wanted the character to wear a necklace with a vintage feel that would look like something she might have inherited from a great-great-grand Duke. She bought a gold spinning locket for Simpson, who wears it front and center throughout the film....

Runway to Ringside

Stefano Gabbana is no stranger to knockouts. As half of the Italian designing duo Dolce & Gabbana—whose fans include Madonna and Nicole Kidman—he's helped create several seasons of winning collections. So how does he relax? By delivering a few more punches.

Why did you take up boxing?
It really helps me unwind. It's a physical and psychological release.

Are you going to go pro?
There are some tournaments, but they're friendly. I already have the best career in the world. I love to box, but it is just a hobby.

How will your runway bow look with a broken nose? Aren't you worried about your face?
I do what I can to protect myself—a helmet and mouth guard—but I come home with bruises on my face. Sometimes a black eye can be sexy.

Who hits harder: the fashion world or boxers?
As far as I'm concerned, the fashion punches can be more painful.


"I've been asked to endorse a lot of products, but the one that stopped me dead in my tracks was Jordache," says the denim company's new spokesmodel Brittany Murphy, who remembers the first pair she owned as a little girl. "They are truly cool, and the style holds up today." For the ad, which debuts in late July, Murphy had to work with a very large horse. Still, "I wasn't nervous at all," she says. "Nothing comes between me and my Jordache!"
