    New York-based jewelry designer Alex Woo has long used nature as inspiration for her delicate and lovely pieces. She's got her pieces around the necks of Rachel Bilson, Zooey Deschanel, Kelly Ripa and Kellan Lutz, to name a few celebs.

    For the DisneyNature movie, Chimpanzee, she designed two pendants in honor of the documentary's protagonist, Oscar. Woo said in a press release, "As the mother of a toddler, I instantly bonded with Oscar, the adorable 3-year-old from the film. I really wanted to capture his youthful and precocious spirit, as well as his beautiful surroundings."

    The pendant's composition is made of up Oscar and three vines. The vines were inspired by the Jane Goodall Institute and its mission to protect animals, people and the environment. Twenty percent of the sales of the pendants will go to the institute's conservation efforts to

  • Mean Betty Hears that Miley Cyrus Might Be Leaving Hollywood!... Or is She?

    Meanie wonders: If Miley is serious about moving, can she throw a party before she goes?

    Mean Betty hears a lot of things about a lot of starlets. She hears when they're happy. She hears when they're sad. Meanie even has a big dry erase board by the pool that she uses to keep track of them all. In fact, Meanie is not unlike Santa Clause in this respect - except that she doesn't give her list of celebs prezzies on the holidays.

    Meanie wasn't surprised, therefore, by the latest of Miley Cyrus' antics. According to Meanie's board, Miley's hot stud of a boyfriend Liam Hemsworth's star is rising (thank you, Hunger Games!), whilst poor Miley has... well, let's put this politely: Not so much going on at the moment. That is to say, she has ZERO projects right now, as well as for the foreseeable future. Oh, wait, isn't she supposed to be in the reboot of Punk'd? Does that count? Meanie is inclined to say no.

  • Uh Oh! Did Lindsay Lohan Punch a Woman at a Nightclub?

    Just when it looked like Lindsay Lohan was getting back on the right track, she's been accused of getting into a fight at a nightclub. But are the allegations true?

    Lindsay LohanLindsay Lohan

    Oh, dear. Less than two weeks after Lindsay Lohan was taken off of formal probation, she's already under investigation for punching a woman at a Los Angeles nightclub. Either she still hasn't managed to iron herself out, or the world is really intent on continuing to kick her while she's down.

    According to the NY Daily News, LiLo has been accused of attacking a woman last Thursday night at The Standard, a chi-chi club located in West Hollywood. Said Sgt. Ed Hummel of the West Hollywood Sheriffs Department, "The person claims she was punched in the back by Lohan." The incident is being investigated as a "suspicious circumstance," though whether that suspicion is in regards to Lindsay or her accuser remains to be seen. The accuser filed a police report on Saturday; as of yet,

    The long-awaited fifth season of AMC's hit show Mad Men premiered just two weeks ago, but already the blogosphere is abuzz with Jessica Paré. Jessica first appeared on the show in the fourth season as Megan Calvet, Don Draper's (Jon Hamm) secretary-until a surprise proposal at the end of the season made her into the next Mrs. Draper.
