Behind the Seams
IT'S A SNAKE! IT'S A PLANE! IT'S A NECKLACE:
To commemorate the release of the Samuel L. Jackson thriller Snakes on a Plane next month, actress Lin Shaye (who plays flight attendant Grace) has created the Shaye's Snakes jewelry line with designer Kathie Takowsky.

HOT FOR TEACHER: Who says schoolmarms have to be frumpy? As Molly in You, Me and Dupree, Kate Hudson models a chic, understated wardrobe that any fashionista can learn from. "She plays a teacher, but her father is well-off, so she has a few good pieces," says costume designer Karen Patch, who dressed the star in Chloé, Frankie B. and Hanes boys tees. "I wanted to keep her classic. She's the voice of reason—it's the guys [Owen Wilson and Matt Dillon] who are out of control."
Who knew La Lohan had so much love to give? (Don't answer that.)

Just call her a bead poet.
Gap is giving away the beads at L.A.'s the Grove and N.Y.C.'s Fifth Avenue locations. Or e-mail your name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org
