She may be able to afford whatever jewelry she wants, but Tyra Banks recently stepped out in Martin + Osa’s inexpensive silver link necklace, which the star recently purchased at the chain’s Century City location.

OWN KINGSTON’S HAND-ME-DOWNS

Gwen Stefani donated items used by sons Zuma and Kingston to handmedowns.com for the site’s first celebrity auction Feb. 11. Proceeds go to the Children’s Hospital of Orange County and the Orangewood Foundation. “When Gavin and I found out we could donate some things the boys had outgrown to raise money for charity, it was automatic for us,” says Stefani. The site’s April auction will feature Nicole Richie and Joel Madden’s daughter Harlow’s castoffs.

THE NEW BRUNETTES

These stars recently traded their light locks for hot-chocolate tresses. Here’s what to do if you’re thinking of going dark

HOW TO GO DARK GRACEFULLY

• Don’t keep the same hairstyle you had as a blonde. Says celebrity hairstylist Rita Hazan: “For brunettes the hair should be sleeker.”

• Switch products. “The color will wash out and fade, so use hydrating shampoos.”

• Adjust your makeup accordingly. “Go for richer, deeper tones.”
