Behind the Seams

Need Proof that Gwyneth Paltrow deserves her rep as a style setter? Check out the black—but not basic—Gucci she wore to a London screening of her latest film.

BOOTSY CALL: One victory for globalization: Boots No. 7 makeup, the line sold at Boots the Chemist stores in England, is now available on this side of the pond, selling at as of next week. The imports are cheap-chic makeup staples for globe-trotting celebs, including Keira Knightley, who asked Boots No. 7 makeup artist Lisa Eldridge to send her five Nude lip pencils to last her through a film shoot. Sounds like these Boots were made for walking....

DREW CONFESSION: It's not just her chipper personality that makes Drew Barrymore look so bright-eyed. She also relies on Sonya Dakar Visualift Eye Cream. "It really lightens up your dark circles," she reveals. "I dig it!" Being easy on the eyes doesn't come cheap; according to the company, expensive new ingredients, including Dermaxyl (a peptide blend) and Matrixyl (a wrinkle reducer), add to its brow-raising price tag....

MILLER TIME: Could this be one of Sienna Miller's secrets to surviving a bad breakup? In the States for a photo shoot last week, the newly single star indulged in a nearly two-hour relaxing treatment at the AmorePacific Beauty Gallery and Spa in New York City's SoHo.

On a recent visit to the city, she stopped into Toujours boutique and bought Rose Vert Parfum Extract, a new blend of citrus oils, tree moss and five different kinds of rose oils by perfumer Dawn Spencer Hurwitz, who also counts Kate's mom, Goldie Hawn, as a fan.

Celebs aplenty turned up at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Smashbox Studios in L.A. to shop the runways for Spring 2006 looks and support local designers. "There are a lot of young talented people here getting started," says Aisha Tyler at Bradley Bayou. Among the stars who sat front and center at the 30-odd shows were Eve, Lucy Liu, Katie Holmes, Jewel and Charlize Theron. There were fashion-week newbies like Jack Osbourne, who admits he usually "doesn't do these kinds of things," and veterans like Janice Dickinson, who exclaimed, "I will be attending fashion shows until they bury me at one."

Many Shades of Sharon
Sharon Stone clearly isn't afraid to take risks—at least when it comes to clothes. Lately her outfits have ranged from the tastefully elegant (chic black) to the frankly kooky (sparkly dress over jeans). As they say, nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Some friendships aren't forever. Nicole Richie had a falling-out with her former B.F. Paris Hilton. But she has other pals, thank you very much, and she's generous with them too. Richie recently gave a gold-and-diamond pendant—the matching half of a heart—to one of her childhood friends. Hilary and Haylie Duff and Mischa Barton also own the necklace and have likely already shared (one half of) the love.
