Which Hollywood hunks declare their love on their boxers? How did Sarah Jessica Parker get that glittery cell phone? And which stars are helping fight heart disease with perky dress pins? All that and more — including some shopping tips for Valentine’s Day — from “Today” contributor and celebrity style expert Steven Cojocaru.
Blume Boxers: More than a brief flirtation!
While some may wear their hearts on their sleeves, others proudly display the object of their affection on, er, their shorts. Personalized boxers from Blume are a favorite of Nick Lachey (who has "Jessica" on his), Ryan Sutter (who has a "Trista" pair), Freddie Prinze (who has "Sarah") and Chris Klein (who wears "Katie"). The boxers retail for $38 and are available at Kitson in Los Angeles (310-859 2652).
NYC Peach: Gem-studded cell phones may have you breathing heavily!
These crystal-studded communicators are a fave of Sarah Jessica Parker, Amanda Bynes and Drea De Matteo. Parker discovered them when she was filming “Sex and the City” one afternoon in downtown Manhattan, saw a woman with one of the glittery devices and walked over to ask where she got it. Sarah Jessica then tracked down the designer, Sarah Gold, and invited her over for brunch to get a custom-made jeweled cell phone for herself. (Parker now has two jeweled cell phones and has been seen with one on “Sex and the City.”) Gold takes cell phone cases and methodically hand-sets Swarovski crystals in unique and beautiful designs. She even guarantees the crystals will not come off, due to her own three-part bonding process, which she says takes about 7 hours to complete. (In some instances, when a specific cell phone model doesn't have an interchangeable phone case, Sarah will take your actual phone and jewel it in the same way.) She has a Web site where people can view her work and place orders, nycpeach.com. The price: $395 (plus shipping and handling).
Frederic Fekkai headband: Paris Hilton’s image-restorer
This “anti-scrunchy” from Frederic Fekkai ($105) has been Paris Hilton's signature head accessory since the launch of her image-revamping campaign. She wore a version to the premiere of her hit TV series, “The Simple Life,” and then another with a Valentino dress to the Billboard Awards. Now Fekkai can't keep them in stock.

Stars who have a heart wear the Little Red Dress Pin
Dozens of celebrities, including Daryl Hannah, Hilary Duff, Jane Kaczmarek and Jennifer Love Hewitt have declared their support for heart-disease research by wearing the Little Red Dress Pin created by Swarovski, the famed Austrian crystal company. Sales of the pin, which retails for $50, benefit the American Heart Association and is the symbol of the fight against heart disease in women. They can be purchased at Swarovski Gallery Stores nationwide or on swarovski.com. (You can also call 800-426-3088 for a list of local outlets.)
