Behind the Seams
Jewel's a gem at an L.A. charity event in this Robert Best dress and Cartier jewelry, but she gives all the credit to her stylist for "making me look and feel amazing."
SHE WAS FONDA IT:
Jennifer Lopez hates her fiancé's mother in Monster-in-Law, but she flipped for the Shah Wacks pineapple-quartz drop necklace she wears throughout the film. The Monster costumer had ordered two pieces (lest La Lopez lose one during a delicious fight scene with Jane Fonda?), and J.Lo kept one after filming wrapped....

It seems you can't snap a Belabumbum bra strap in L.A. without whacking the back of a hot young celeb. Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Simpson and Nicole Richie all wear Belabumbum lingerie. Lohan loves it so much her stylist told the company the actress-singer wanted to stock her closet with their Copacabana collection. Other Belabumbum babes include Kate Hudson and Halle Berry.

MAKEOVER OF THE WEEK ASHLEE SIMPSON
Readers' Poll Results
think Ashlee's new look is a Do
Ashlee Simpson just lightened up. She had Rita Hazan color her locks a golden-blonde shade close to her natural light brown, and stylist Oscar Blandi cut off 4 in. "It was a celebration of her tour ending," says Kazan. Blandi calls the look "sexy, rock and roll—perfect for her."
"I originally cut Jessica's hair like this when she landed the role of Daisy Duke," says Ken Pavés, who wanted to give her a style distinct from Daisy's extensions. "I showed her a photo of Faye Dunaway in Bonnie and Clyde before I we cut it."
Dunaway's Bonnie look—along with a 1980s cut he gave Christy Turlington—inspired Oribe to cut 8 in. off Jennifer Lopez's mane for what he calls "a supersexy, versatile length." Leonard Golino says he's seen an influx of clients ask for the style at his N.Y.C. salon.
FAKING THE LOOK
Pavés is also the man behind Brittany Murphy's makeover—but it's not a cut. With layers like hers you can get what Pavés calls "the change without the commitment" by pinning up your longer layers underneath, giving the appearance of a bob.
Celebrities like GWEN STEFAN and TYRA BANKS are paying $260 for these hot new threads that have just hit stores. People for Peace jeans are made from Italian denim adorned with colorful embroidery, hand-applied copper rivets and patchwork inspired by retro tattoos. And the Peace movement is spreading: JESSICA SIMPSON, NICOLE RICHIE and HILARY and HAYLIE DUFF also own the pants.
Peple for Peace jeans, $260: G.C.William 212-396-3400.
Not everything on Britney Spears is getting bigger now that she's pregnant. Her trademark Daisy Dukes—which have toured Europe and rest stops throughout L.A. with her—will remain super-skimpy, thanks to Chip & Pepper. The denim designers are launching a new line of Hot Mama maternity jeans in late summer and recently sent Brit a pair of short shorts with an elastic waistband. Could they give Kevin's shorts a waistband too?

Trend of the Week
BIG BAGS, LITTLE LADIES
"Supersize me!" demand the smallest stars in showbiz—and they're not talking about Big Macs. These petite powerhouses are snapping up the largest satchels they can find. Jessica Simpson could fit an entire wee wardrobe in her massive Soft Greta bag ($570), by Furla, which hits stores this August. The other diminutive divas are all hauling the biggest Balenciaga bag there is, the Weekender ($1,350). We already knew that little ladies can be big spenders.
