First came the chandelier earring with its tiered dangles, then the long drop stilettos. Now the hottest ear candy is round and riddled with diamonds—like a Native American dream catcher loaded with bling.
Bigger Is Better
Make no mistake, these not-so-subtle swingers are meant to be seen—from afar.
How to Wear Them
Since their look is somewhat busy, coifs are best kept simple and neat like Aisha Tyler's sleek do or Gwyneth Paltrow's smooth bun.
Behind the Seams
It was the name of the film, not a dress code, but Charlize Theron showed up at the Cannes premiere of De-Lovely looking delightful in a silk Dior by John Galliano gown.
SHARP RAZOR: It's not like P. Diddy to hock products that aren't his own—but throw in a free shave from two models and a $16,000 diamond razor by Jacob the Jeweler, and why not? Gillette asked the entrepreneurial rapper to promote its new M3Power razor, and he obliged. "I tell people, 'I don't drink champagne, don't give it to me,' " he says. "Give me diamonds, I am like any woman, I guess, but I' m straight."...
This three-carat-diamond razor given to P. Diddy by Gillette "is cute," he says. "I think my girl may use it."

The Softer Side of SWANK
Go ahead and do a triple take—Hilary Swank hopes you will. "Since Boys Don't Cry, people have this image of me," says the actress of her Oscar-winning role playing a girl living as a boy. "It will be interesting to hear their reactions." She's talking about her ads for Calvin Klein's new Sensual Support Lingerie shot by fashion photographer Steven Meisel (which debut in July). While Swank is the first female celebrity to appear in one of Calvin's provocative underwear ads, she's a veteran when it comes to underclothes. "I buy lingerie for different moods," she says. "There is beautiful cotton that you feel more comfortable in, and there's lacy lingerie that has push-up and a lot of support that makes you feel sexy."
