WHAT WAS SHE THINKING?
At the Billboard Music Awards Dec. 4 in Las Vegas, Janet Jackson gambled on a Wall Street-meets-Chippendales look—and lost.
Behind the Seams
IN THE CLUTCH: If you’ve ever juggled a purse and a drink at a cocktail party, you already know the less complicated the bag, the better. Which is probably why Jennifer Aniston, Kate Bosworth and Jessica Simpson are fans of Poppie Couture’s leather Foldover clutch. It has no clasps or buckles and simply folds over to close….

CAUSE CELEBRE: It was a bicoastal lovefest Dec. 1 as stars flocked to the N.Y.C. and L.A. Emporio Armani boutiques to show support for the designer’s (PRODUCT) RED line launch on World AIDS Day. Beyoncé, Eve and Amerie came to the Madison Avenue shop, while Molly Sims and the Black Eyed Peas’ will.i.am appeared at the Beverly Hills store. Says Beyoncé of the cause: “It’s important for people to learn how to take care and protect themselves.”…
ORGANIC CHEMISTRY: She may be a fashion chameleon, but Kate Moss is fiercely loyal to friend Jo Wood’s organic bath and beauty products. The supermodel loves the natural (and pricey) line, which contains ingredients like orange water and Egyptian jasmine. “I love Jo’s products,” says Moss. “They smell beautiful.”…

HAIR STORY: Sheryl Crow thinks a change will do you good … at least when it comes to your hair. She just signed on to be the face of Revlon Colorist, a premium line of hair color products launching next month, with an ad campaign shot by fashion photographer Ellen von Unwerth. The star, a breast cancer survivor, will also team up with Revlon for breast cancer charity initiatives.
REEL LIFE CAMERON DIAZ IN:
Prada and Dior and Hermès … Oh my! Though Cameron Diaz‘s workaholic L.A. to U.K. transplant Amanda in The Holiday gleefully swathes herself in contemporary designer labels, the inspiration for her look was quite retro: “Visually, [director] Nancy [Meyers] and I wanted to do an updated version of a ’40s romantic comedy—[one of those] films that had a glamorous, aspirational quality to them,” says costume designer Marlene Stewart. Adds Meyers: “Her character probably already had all these clothes for ski vacations she never takes.” As for Diaz’s favorite pieces? “Cashmere,” she sighs. “All that cashmere.”
“The fingerless gloves are fun and playful,” says Stewart. “Amanda is a bit of a rebel and she expresses herself in these kinds of details.”
“This outfit was a big designer showcase—the coat is Dior, the bag is Dolce & Gabbana and the stilettos are Prada,” says Stewart. “She’s still bringing that L.A. vibe over to England.”
