WINNER'S CIRCLE
Even more delicious than a fine bottle of red? Sideways star Sandra Oh, in this raspberry chiffon Valentino gown at the Directors Guild of America Awards in Los Angeles.

SHOE-INS: Couture clothing is run of the mill for celebs. Now customized shoes are stepping onto the scene. At an awards show, Jessica Simpson, Paris Hilton and Hilary Duff each custom-ordered Tracy Stern stilettos from the designer, who is known for her updates on 1940s-style heels. Simpson's pair has "Daisy Duke" written across the front, Duff's reads "Rock Star," and Hilton's proclaims "That's Hot!" Now they can let their toes do the talking....

STAR POWER: A new Star is born. First, designer Tommy Hilfiger tapped Beyoncé to be the spokeswoman for True Star, his women's fragrance collection. Now...it's a boy! Enrique Iglesias was just announced as the co-creator of and spokesman for True Star Men, Hilfiger's men's fragrance line, which will launch in the fall. "This is a great way to reach out to people around the world," says Iglesias. Perhaps he'll take a page from his dad's songbook and send some cologne samples to all the girls he's loved before....

HOURGLASS FIGURE: Like sands through the hourglass, so go the days of our lives. But on special nights, even beauties want help looking their best. Having discovered Hourglass Veil Fluid Makeup on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Angelina Jolie had makeup artist Mary Burton order more of the foundation "in case she decides to go to the Oscars." So if we know what will be on Jolie's face, the question is, who will be on her arm?...

TENNIS SHOES, ANYONE? What can be black and white and is worn all over? Keds. The classic sneaker gained a fresh face, spokeswoman Mischa Barton, to go with the looks in their spring line. But Barton and Keds have been old friends since the first pair she owned as a kid. "They were blue with white laces," she recalls. "I've been wearing Keds a lot lately, because they're comfortable, sexy, and they go with everything." Barton paired hers with a Chanel dress for the new line's launch party. What's next? Leather and lace-ups?

Introducing...Mally Roncal

WHO: Makeup artist to the stars and creator of Mally Beauty
AGE: 33
HOMETOWN: Middletown, N.Y.
RECIPE FOR SUCCESS: "I created the line for women who want to look gorgeous in five minutes or less."

You'd think that the woman who makes Beyoncé as beautylicious as she is booty-licious—and gives Jennifer Lopez her J.Lo glow—would have reason to be happy. But Mally Roncal is annoyed. "At family parties, I used to be the only one all glammed up," she says. Then she gave relatives samples of her new line, Mally Beauty. Now "everyone's gorgeous!" Joking aside, that's just what she wanted. Honing her skills on celebs, "busy women who want to get out of the chair as quickly as possible," Roncal set out to create products that "translate makeup artists tricks into an easy-to-get-right line." Her Shimmer, Shape & Glow compact, for example, gives cheeks a "movie-star glow" in "30 seconds or less." Sounds like even more women are about to get gorgeous!

Mally Beauty will be previewed on QVC on February 14th. Left: Paint the Town brush kit with Powder, Blush, Flat and Round Eyeshadow, Eyeliner and Lip brushes, $95, and Citychick Smokey Eye kit, $39.50; www.QVC.com.

Sneak Peek

BEYONCE'S NEW FASHION LINE
She's got a style all her own, but for Beyoncé Knowles, fashion sense runs in the family. House of Deréon, a clothing line the songstress and her mom, stylist Tina Knowles, are creating in honor of Beyoncé's late grandmother, seamstress Agnes Deréon, is inspired by all three generations. "This line is influenced by Creole culture, things my mom did, like smocking and beading," says Tina. "The details make it nice." If this sketch is any indication, the pair will add some naughty to the nice, incorporating Beyoncé's sexy flair. A denim line, launching in July, features embellished jeans, while the other clothing, in stores for the holidays, has distinctive detailing, says Tina, whether it's just "a collar or cuff." Sometimes it's little things that make you crazy in love.

Getting Flirty
A flirt on That '70s Show, Mila Kunis was a natural to guest-create products for Flirt! cosmetics. Her Pucci-printed pallettes were inspired by Spring fashion trends that, she says, "seemed bold; wanted to create something of the moment." After all, flirting is always in fashion.
