Lucky magazine did it again with NYC’s ultimate fashion experience! This was Lucky Shops 8th year of amazing deals and great shopping. With celebs like Bridget Moynahan, Stephanie March, Kaylee Defer from Gossip Girl and Abigail Breslin – it was sure to be a fabulous weekend of shopping and fun.
Everyone looked great, especially Abigail Breslin who was rockin’ the Little Rock Star Double Note 2! Alex was able to catch up with her, since the last time they saw each other at Super Saturday 14, as they both smiled for the cameras on the red carpet. The event lasted three days and saw 7,000 people total from 40 different states! I think it’s safe to say that everyone shopped til’ they dropped at the 8th annual Lucky Shops.
Known for her outstanding performances in mostly indie flicks, actress and singer Zooey Deschanel shows off her baby blues on the cover of Self magazine’s July 2011 issue wearing Alex Woo’s Gold Little Double Note. The magazine is on newsstands today (June 16) in New York and Los Angeles.
Here’s what the 31-year-old actress had to share:
On getting to know yourself: “Most people spend too much time comparing themselves to others….Get to know yourself a little bit better. Stop and ask yourself a few questions, and think about you.”
On why she works out: “A lot of people work out to be skinny. That’s so boring, and it seems like a depressing goal for a modern woman. I work out to be healthy and because I like it. I do sports or classes, things that engage my mind. If you’re active, fitness will follow – and probably a good figure, too.”
On advice she’d give her former self: “If I could give my teenaged self any advice, it would be ‘Calm down!’ In fact, if I could relive one day of my life, it would be the worst day of seventh grade, just so I could appreciate how much better life is now.”
Zooey also joked with Self staffers that “if this acting thing doesn’t work out,” she could be a Snow White impersonator at Disneyland!
Check out this behind the scenes video at Deschanel’s SELF cover shoot where she shows of her hula-hoop skills and also presents all the jewelry available, where the Little Note was hand-picked.
For those wondering who is on the cover, it is none other than Iconiq, Japan’s ‘Sinead O’Connor’ of J-Pop. As the new face of Shiseido, a major Japanese cosmetic giant, she is getting plenty of press in the Far East for her new look and shaved locks.
In the Hollywood Beauty & Gossip feature, Monica talks about some of America’s biggest stars Jennifer Lopez, Halle Berry and Miley Cyrus as trendsetters and each of them wearing Alex Woo’s Little Icons Jewelry.
This is one style that is not ‘Lost in Translation’
With her Little Icon collection, designer Alex Woo injects fun into fine jewelry by creating charms that are at once elegant ad playful. But Woo is quite serious about her mini masterpieces: “Each one is designed to stand alone like a piece of artwork,” says Woo, who has a background in sculpture, and designs and crafts each trinket in her New York City studio.
Music lovers may dig the tiny musical notes, but there are quirky combos for everyone: Try coupling a silver spade with a 14-karat-gold horseshoe for a little luck, or sport your initials in diamond-encrusted letters for a flashier look. The pendants can be fancy but also, as Woo insists, “classic enough to wear everyday.” – Rebecca Strauss
In their first annual Personal Style Awards, ELLE salutes the hottest tastemakers–from screen sirens to neo-royals, rebel policos to indie rockers–with the chicest, most daring, individual looks.
“Designer darling” Jennifer Lopez and “Urban Cowgirl” Miley Cyrus, are both huge fans of jewelry designer, Alex Woo. Even though both performers have very different styles, they both love the personalized pieces like JLo’s “m&e” from the Little Letters collection and Miley’s music note from Little Notes.
With the release of her new album “Breakout” on July 22nd, Miley Cyrus was touring New York City and was seen everywhere wearing one of Alex Woo’s Little Notes pendants. From her Good Morning America outdoor live concert to her appearance in Times Square for MTV’s TRL she wore them for fashion, luck and a personal connection next to her own name. She even wore them in the photo shoot for her “Breakout” album.
Starting at Good Morning America, she broke the record she set last year for attendance when fans young and old packed Bryant Park for the free summer concert. Thousands of screaming fans, teens, tweens and their parents all watched Miley Cyrus sing a few of her hottest hits in the morning from her new album. The 15-year-old singer and actress wrote all but two songs on the album. During the show, GMA had a short Gossip Girl fashion show, but no question about it, Miley rocked the morning with a fashionable plaid button-up shirt, denim cutoff shorts, a pair of suede heeled boots and great jewelry.
A great song, says Colbie Caillat, should lift your heart, warm the soul and make you feel good. Taking her own sound advice, “Coco”, the debut album by the 22 year-old Californian singer-songwriter is simply crammed full of them.
In an age when marketing has been elevated above content and so many songs are written and produced to a pre-ordained formula, Caillat comes as a welcome breath of fresh air. Records these days seem to fall into two categories. The vast majority tend to contain one or two good tracks which you download to your computer so that you never have to listen to the rest of the album again. Far more rare are those that demand to be listened to from start to finish, with every song in perfect symmetry. Think of the kind of vintage, organically-crafted albums that Carole King or Joni Mitchell used to make. Thankfully, it’s a tradition that is being kept alive.
“Kiss the Girl” is an Academy Award-nominated calypso song from Disney’s 1989 animated film The Little Mermaid, composed by Alan Menken with lyrics by Howard Ashman. Colbie Caillat’s cover of the song for DisneyMania 6 was released in May 2008 and in the video she proudly wears Alex Woo’s double note icon.
What an incredible phenomenon American Idol is — and what a phenomenal idea it was put it to good use for a star-studded blockbuster charity event meant to entertain millions of people for the sake of helping millions more. Bigger and more ambitious than ever, it was a night of exhilarating performances, unexpected collaborations and heartbreaking presentations showing just who, exactly, those donated dollars would go to help. With a rolodex of celebrities such as Brad Pitt, Robin Williams, Celine Dion, Forrest Whitaker, Fergie, Mariah Carey, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Bono, Reese Witherspoon and many others, the show at the Kodak Theatre in LA raised a whopping $60+ million.
The most anticipated performance of the night came from singer/actress Miley Cyrus. Known for starring as Miley Stewart, “Hannah Montana” on the Disney Channel Original Series, Hannah Montana, she performed a two-song set for the American Idol special and even had a little stand-up comedy sketch with comedian Billy Crystal. Wowing the audience with an energetic performance of “Good and Broken” she also looked stylish for the millions of viewers, by selecting to wear a glittering black-with-white-stars tank top underneath a black jacket with Alex Woo Little Notes and Little Princess jewelry.
“You don’t have to travel all around the world to make a difference. You can do something in your own town, your own backyard.” – Miley Cyrus
Teen icon Miley Cyrus has become one of Hollywood’s newest and most influential trendsetters. Miley’s looking more stylish than ever wearing Alex Woo’s little diamond double note from the Little Notes collection, layered with the diamond Little Princess star necklace. Well, it’s like the saying goes, diamonds are a girl’s best friend!

When a production wraps, tokens stoke the crew members. As thanks for enduring 16-hour days filled with mind-numbing waits, staggering ego trips, and blistering tantrums, stars and directors of TV and film productions traditionally give crew members a hideous jacket emblazoned with the film’s title. But above-the-line names have lately begun to offer gifts with flair that are enjoyed rather than eBayed… Following the making of Walk Hard, the upcoming spoof of musical biopics written by Jake Kasdan and Knocked Up director Judd Apatow, star Jenna Fischer (The Office) handed our music-note necklaces by designer Alex Woo. Gift giving has become such a sport that directors no longer wait until filming wraps to start wrapping presents…
Check out the August issue of Self featuring our favorite American Idol Kelly Clarkson! With an exclusive interview alongside eye-catching photos, the pop star reveals “I don’t care about selling millions. . . I just want to write music that people will relate to.”
Singing her heart out, the 25-year-old American Idol winner wrote or cowrote every song on the new album, My December and isn’t worried about the success—or lack thereof of the album which shows her confidence. Ultimately, she says “I try to make the songs as real as what I’m feeling in my heart”

With Kelly Clarkson gracing the cover of Elle’s Music Issue, you know it is going to be good. Inside, the American Idol shares her thoughts about her life, the music industry and about her ‘type’ – “I can’t stand pretty boys. The guys I date are the just-rolled-out-of-bed, scruffy type. Baseball cap, flannel shirt. Like Luke on Gilmore Girls.”
With a feature inside Elle dedicated to Shops – Greatest Hits “the love affair between the music industry and fashion couldn’t be stronger these days, with looks from spring and fall channeling the most dramatic trends from hip-hop to hippie. Whether you’re feeling inspired to lighten up this summer with breezy tie-dyes, sharpen your edge with fierce, neo-punk accessories, or incorporate hints of raveresque neon, the key is to selectively update your closet and, at the same time, as music legends have done before, stay true to your roots. Shown on the page include Alex Woo’s Little Notes collection.”

Mentor-teacher Folake Akinola-Pinard, 35 has her own interpretation of style. She says “I’m boho chic meets Oprah! Classic with a pinch of panache.” With vintage dresses and strappy sandals, she adds zing with Alex Woo’s gold Sienna bangles.
In the Power Moves feature, Essense asks “Who says you can’t have it both ways? High-powered and pretty that is. This spring, designers add a delicate twist to your favorites in the bottom right photo Alex Woo’s diamond star pendant is paired with Boss Black clutch and Cesare Paciotti platforms.

Jessica White: Just 22 years old and hailing from Buffalo, New York, she was 14 when she went to New York City for a IMTA (International Modeling and Talent Association) competition and did so well that she got so many call backs for both modeling and acting the rest is history. Marking her fourth appearance in the swimsuit edition, she is the first African-American model to appear in three consecutive editions of the SI Swimsuit Issue (2003, 2004, and 2005).
