Behind the Seams
C’EST (JON) BON: Now Jon Bon Jovi can say with confidence that, yes, he has rocked them all: Though fellow pop stars Gwen Stefani and Justin Timberlake have their own accessory lines, they are also fans of Jon Bon Jovi’s new Rock Star Baby jewelry collection. Timberlake has the Star watch and Tattoo bracelet, while Stefani snapped up (our personal favorite) the Born to Be My Baby dog tag….

ENCHANTING EVENING: With her latest fragrance, Enchanting, Celine Dion’s creative process was quite simple. “I talk so much that the way we create is we sit at a round table,” she says. “And whatever mood I’m in, [Coty’s fragrance team] takes notes. They’re like songwriters.” The freewheeling creative process extended to the ad campaign, which launches in February. “I tried on many dresses but [with the Collette Dinnigan] we all said, ‘Oh!'” Enchanting, which features mimosa and sandalwood notes, debuts in March….
Enchanting, $35 for 1.7 oz.; available March 1 at JCPenney and Kohl’s.
GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY: Golden Globe-nominated ladies have received a pretty little trinket that should come in handy on the big night: Cate Blanchett, Meryl Streep and Renée Zellweger are among those who were given L’Oréal’s Swarovski crystal-encrusted compact, modeled on a $6,500 Kwiat diamond version. Twenty percent of the sales of the more affordable compact will benefit the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.

REEL LIFE BEYONCE KNOWLES IN
“She started out in the least glamorous clothes, with thick eyebrows and bad wigs,” says Beyoncé Knowles of Deena Jones, her character in the just-out film Dreamgirls. “And she butterflies into this diva.”
Those who engineered the transformation say Deena’s look was a careful combination of old and new. “I added contemporary clothing to period fabrics and designs,” says costume designer Sharen Davis, who handmade most of the garments in the film. The star’s makeup was also an update on retro technique. “Back in the day, makeup tended to look a little masky,” says head makeup artist Tym Buacharern. “We added a little more sheen and shimmer.”
“This dress was inspired by a Diana Ross and the Supremes fringed dress,” says Davis. As for Deena’s asymmetrical bob, “that geometric cut was really hot at that time,” says hairstylist Kim Kemble.
Deena’s bouffant required “lots of teasing, lots of hairspray!” says Kemble. The mermaid gown was inspired by an unsigned 1964 fashion photo.
THE DISCO QUEEN
“I really wanted her to look like a disco ball,” says Davis. Adds makeup artist Francesca Tolot: “I treated glitter like eye shadow.”
