Actress Kristen Bell has the chic, girl-next-door look down to an art. The romantic comedy veteran is a master at playing it cool on the red carpet. From her tangerine Tommy Hilfiger gown at the Costume Institute gala earlier this year to her rainbow-colored Jenni Kayne frock from the recent Do Something Awards, Bell appears effortlessly at ease but on trend. Bell and fiance Dax Shepard star together in the film "Hit & Run," which opens Wednesday. For the film's L.A. premiere Bell wore a black satin jumpsuit from the Jenny Packham fall 2012 collection.

Everywhere you turn, it seems Beyoncé has taken over the world. The superstar singer performed for President Obama at the inauguration last month and managed to brush off the accompanying lip sync scandal with style and grace. She's on the cover of the March issue of Vogue with the line "Queen B ! Beyoncé rules the world!" She had the twitterverse buzzing with #Beyoncebowl after her killer halftime performance at the Super Bowl. And she looked good doing all of it. Whether on stage in a Rubin Singer leather and lace number at the Super Bowl or ducking paparazzi in a sweater and jeans with rapper-husband Jay-Z, Beyoncé knows how to work her curves.

If you needed any more proof that jumpsuits are back, it came earlier this month when a peacock-embroidered one-piece owned by Elvis Presley fetched $300,000 at auction. That anonymous bidder isn't the only one taken with the style star of summer. At "The Dark Knight" premiere, Maggie Gyllenhaal donned a backless jumpsuit by Stella McCartney, along with the cherry red lips and soft finger waves of a 1940s screen siren. Selma Blair sported a tuxedo version by Marchesa for the L.A. premiere of "Hellboy II," and Brooke Shields wore a Proenza Schouler sequined style at the Tony Awards.

Actress Maggie Gyllenhaal is never one to blend into a crowd. Her blue eyes naturally draw in movie audiences, but she always tends to stand apart from the rest of the Hollywood stars sartorially as well. The indie actress turned blockbuster star in 2008's "The Dark Knight" shakes things up on the red carpet in unique cuts and color combinations that are anything but ordinary. She keeps her accessories minimal and really lets her clothing shine. At a recent screening of her new film "Won't Back Down," due out Sept.

When you hear the word jumpsuit, you may think of what you wore when you were 5 years old and played in sandboxes, or you may be reminded of that little khaki number the plumber wears when he unclogs your kitchen sink. But it's time to rethink. Jumpsuits are now in, in a big way for women, as a choice for comfortable, elegant dressing. "The jumpsuit is very big for holiday, day or evening wear," attests Maureen Norton, general manager of Jona in Studio City.

Evangelist Jim Bakker donned an orange jumpsuit today for the first day of his 45-year prison term for fraud, and his 83-year-old mother sobbed that "the best years of his life" will be spent behind bars. "The judge is so mean. He's just unfair. He was so prejudiced against Jim," said Furnia Bakker, after her youngest son was sentenced to 45 years in prison and ordered to pay a $500,000 fine.

Jumpsuits have never really been out. They've just been lying low since World War II, when thousands of Rosie-the-Riveter types went to work in factories, replacing the guys who had gone to war. Jumpsuits in those days, practical and protective, were worn by Winston Churchill "at the front" and by the world's working men. But once women zipped into them, they never really zipped out.

On USA network, nothing on "Graceland" is what it seems. For the network that boasts an open-door policy for characters, the larger-than-life persona of the King of Rock and Roll (Elvis Presley) will not be one of its new recruits when the network's new drama premieres this summer -- and there's no Vegas backdrop or the Memphis mansion either. The drama, which comes from Jeff Eastin (the man behind the network's mainstay "White Collar"), centers on a group of agents from the FBI, DEA and Customs who are shacked up in a drug dealer's Manhattan Beach mansion that has been seized by the government (in the show, the drug dealer is a fan of the King -- hence the house's moniker and the show's title)

A Colton man released from jail in San Bernardino County early Friday was rearrested for possession of stolen property — his bright orange inmate jumpsuit. Jerry Valentino Aldama, 26, allegedly stole the jumpsuit when he was released from the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga. Then, for reasons that mystify authorities, he slipped into the jail garb before boarding an eastbound bus outside the jail. Thinking Aldama was on the lam, the Omnitrans bus driver alerted his dispatcher, who in turn called the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department.

Would Mike Shanahan actually order one of his players to throw a ball . . . well, in the direction of Raider owner Al Davis? Legend has it this happened on Sept. 5, 1994. Elvis Grbac, now with Kansas City, told the New York Times that the Denver Broncos' coach, then the San Francisco 49ers' offensive coordinator, suggested he take a shot at Davis on the sideline during pregame warmups at Candlestick Park.
