SPECIAL RECIPE: They were sold by the bucket, they are delicious, but they taste nothing like chicken. What are they? Sumptuously soft Landes Daily tees, which are now available by the piece, sans bucket—in case you have an appetite for only one. Several of the tees were ordered for Jennifer Lopez to wear in Monster-in-Law. The mother-in-law, played by Jane Fonda in the film, just happens to be loosely based on Landes Daily tees designer Rich Landes's mother. His ex-wife wrote the film—and she's still a pal. Pass the tees, please....

They were sent to me as a gift, and my assistant opened them up and said, 'You won't be fitting into these for a while.' I took them out and they were really big, so I've been wearing them every day," Good things do come in large packages....

HOGAN'S HEROES: Hogan's Olympia sneaker is making tracks all over the silver screen. Costumers for The Untitled Ted Griffin Project ordered the shoe for Jennifer Aniston, Cake's Heather Graham is getting a pair, and Scarlett Johansson has been wearing hers to shoot scenes for her new film Synergy. It's easy to understand why these shoes are flying off the shelves. If you can't find them in stores, try your local multiplex.

Accessory of the Week

That's right, bigger is better—especially when it comes to jewelry, darling. Provided it's all done tastefully, of course, bodacious beads like Sarah Jessica Parker's Persian turquoise necklace or Ashley Judd's pearl-and-diamond choker are a dramatic accessory to whatever costume you adorn.

In addition to an ex-boyfriend, teen rivals Hilary Duff and Lindsay Lohan can add this trendy tote to their list of shared baggage.
