British soul singer and songwriter’s new album “Introducing Joss Stone” — a mix of warm vintage soul, ’70s-style R&B, Motown girl-group harmonies, and hip-hop grooves, will be released by Virgin Records on March 20th.
In the debut single “Tell Me ‘Bout it’” she can be seen wearing Alex Woo’s Sienna Cuff and Narissa earrings in the video to highlight her brave new look. With four Grammy nominations, this will be her third album. Her first two albums, 2003′s “The Soul Sessions” and 2005′s “Mind, Body & Soul” collectively sold 7.5 million copies but the 19-year-old Stone says “It’s the first album that is truly me… These are my words, and this is who I am as an artist.”
With her first proper tour in nearly three years, the star will be showcasing tracks from her latest album produced largely by Stone’s main musical collaborator, Raphael Saadiq (The Roots, Macy Gray). With lyrics written or co-written by Stone herself, the album also features contributions from Fugees singer Lauryn Hill and rapper Common.

In the photo, Sheryl Crow mixes metals and textures and wears Alex Woo’s Sienna Luxe Bangles to amazing grace.

She earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Stephens College in Columbia, Mo., attending on a cello scholarship.
Amy Rosenblum, Senior Producer of the Today Show, was born on July 21, in Lawrence, Long Island. She attended Lawrence High School, where she dated future shoe designer Steve Madden.

In the exclusive interview with amazing photos, Mariska humbly says “I think the most important thing is to understand that everyone is the same. Everyone deserves to be treated respectfully.

All that glitters is, in fact, not gold. Here’s how to tell platinum from palladium and get the most out of your jewelry dollars.
Even if you barely know a karat from a carrot, that shouldn’t stop you from acquiring a shiny new bauble (or two). To get what you pay for, however, it helps to know a bit of jewelry jargon. For instance, what’s the difference between 24- and 14-karat gold? And what’s so “sterling” about sterling silver? Industry pros and top jewelry designers answer common questions about precious metals and compare the merits of the most popular types. Now you can be sure that your jewelry purchases are worth their weight in — well, you know.
In the feature story, Alex Woo’s Sienna rings and circle necklace are shown, along with the white gold Narissa earrings as examples of quality jewelry.

Some of us have always worn diamonds during the day; and we’re not about to stop — even if we’re wearing them with hoodies and yoga pants. “Jewelry is to be enjoyed, and not locked away,” says designer Temple St. Clair, 46, who wears her own diamond necklace with tees and jeans. “I’ve seen a huge increase in the number of women buying jewelry for themselves, and they tell me they like the bigger, bolder pieces. Well our forties and fifties are a very confident time. We want what we want.” Amen to that.
In this jewelry feature called “Diamonds Du Jour” Alex Woo’s Sienna cuff is featured alongside other designer pieces featuring diamonds.

This fall she will be in a film playing Denzel Washington’s love interest in the upcoming film Deja Vu.

In the photo, by the exceptionally talented photographer Gilles Bensimon, she is wearing an embroidered silk camisole top by Stella McCartney and Alex Woo’s gold Sienna bangles with diamonds. Patton self admittingly reveals she is not a member of the dressed-down L.A. tribe. “I like to be a bit sophisticated.”
