Julie amp Julia

star Amy Adams is so busy with her movie career that she's had little time to plan her wedding. "He's really special. I'm really lucky because he's not competitive with me. He supports and embraces my success as mine," Adams has said of her fiance. Another great thing about her future husband? He knows his jewelry. When Darren Legallo proposed to the actress in July 2008, he presented her with a 1-carat brilliant-cut diamond ring from Jean Dousset. Now you can buy a bauble just like Amy's at Dousset's new eBay store. Select the cut, design and price range, and you'll get a made-to-order diamond. "You don't have to compromise style over budget," says Dousset. "Just give her what she wants!"

She may be Tweeting about lying in bed watching reality TV and indulging in ice cream cake, but soon-to-be second time mom Nicole Richie has been hard at work on her new line of maternity clothes. "I really tried to make this line to get [pregnant] women excited about wearing clothes," Richie tells People of partnering with A Pea in The Pod to create the "Nicole" maternity collection, which hits stores on Friday. "I think the pregnant body is beautiful, and I think you should show it off." Like her House of Harlow 1960 jewelry line, the collection of peasant tops, maxi dresses and leggings is heavily influenced by Richie's love of all things bohemian. With prices ranging from $48 to $148, you don't have to be a Hollywood mom to shop for Richie's style.

The line snaked around the block during a New York City casting call for the upcoming Sex and The City sequel, so we sent a well-heeled intern to get the scoop on the shoes. "I spend money on shoes like a Carrie, but I'd say I am a Charlotte. I've been married for 26 years!" one woman told us. Still, we were surprised to find that Carrie's favorite labels were seriously under-represented. Out of 148 potential extras polled, here's the breakdown of the brands we saw:

? Steve Madden: 62%
? Aldo: 12%
? Nike: 12%
? BCBG: 10%
? Manolo Blahnik: 2%
? Christian Louboutin: 2%
? Jimmy Choo: 0%

Say adios to the orthodontist, Betty Suarez! According to Just Jared, America Ferrera's character is already sporting the sleek new look that series creator, Silvio Horta, discussed with "Her braces will be off by the end of next season," Horta said. "Next year, there's going to be a progression in her look overall." The makeover (which was spotted during shooting) includes shaped brows, understated makeup and smoother locks, but with her signature oversize initial necklace and vibrant orange outfit, there's no doubt that this is still Betty!

With Melrose Place set to debut on September 8, we wanted to know what past fashion trend star Ashlee Simpson wants to see make a comeback.

Now there's news that fashion icon Jean Paul Gaultier has designed a collection of Docs, so Ashlee may be wearing hers on the red carpet sooner than she thinks.
