WINNER’S CIRCLE

Behind the Seams

HAIR TODAY … gone tomorrow! Ashlee Simpson and Lauren Conrad both unveiled new dos this week. Simpson returned to her dark roots, dyeing her hair a sultry auburn shade, while Conrad traded her signature long locks for a lighter, shorter look.

PURPLE REIGN

Stars like Katie Holmes, Ellen Page and Rihanna are getting a jump on spring’s pretty pastel trend with purple eye makeup. Subtle shades and a restrained hand are key to making it look more modern and less ’80s.

JENNA BUSH’S DREAM DRESS

Her May 10 nuptials are a way off, which leaves plenty of time for Jenna Bush to decide on a dress for the Crawford, Texas, ceremony. Designers who have dressed the first daughter are happy to offer their suggestions: “Jenna would be smashing in a glamorous red-carpet gown,” says Mark Badgley of Badgley Mischka, who outfitted Bush for a 2005 Inaugural Ball. Adds another Jenna fave, Lela Rose: “I see her wearing a gown [that] combines a modern sensibility with old-world couture.”
