From England comes the gladsome tidings that Stella McCartney will spend $750,000 to build a wildlife refuge, including six duck ponds and a water purification plant, on the 200-year-old, 300-acre farm in Hereford that she bought for almost $2 million last year. Stella tells British press that the project will conserve energy and includes 2,000 new plants and shrubs. We can tell Stella that that will add up to a lot of T-shirts.



Busy as pretty little bees, if you can call heiresses bees —and why not? — are Amanda and Lydia Hearst, the great-granddaughters of press giant William Randolph Hearst. The darlings have been getting ready for their debuts, deciding what parties to go to, what dresses to wear and all the rest of it. Vera Wang won. Amanda will wear a white Vera Wang gown for her formal debut at the Cotillion in San Francisco before returning to New York to spend the holidays with her mother, Anne Hearst.

Cousin Lydia, Patricia Hearst’s daughter, will also wear a white Vera Wang when she comes out at the Infirmary Ball to benefit NYU Downtown Hospital. A bud is a bud is a bud.



A movie star is a movie star is a movie star. Nicole Kidman, Julianne Moore and Claire Danes sparkled big time in Fred Leighton jewels at the New York premiere of "The Hours." The ever-stylish Ms. Kidman wore rose-cut diamond chandelier earrings and a Twenties diamond clip clasped to the hip of her trousers. Ms. Moore shimmered in rose-cut diamond cluster pendant earrings and a pair of Edwardian pearl-and-diamond cuff bracelets. Ms. Danes chose an Edwardian diamond pendant and rose-cut diamond drop earrings.

It might come as a surprise that every now and then, these ladies do wear their own jewelry. But not if Leighton, Tiffany, Cartier and Winston can help it.



Lily Safra, the widow of Edmond J. Safra, an international banker and a billionaire many times over, came to New York from London to dedicate a new synagogue, elegantly designed by the noted French architect Thierry Despont, to her husband’s memory. Lily is a lovely, courageous woman, who in the last several years has gone through hell since the mysterious death of her husband in a fire in their Monte Carlo apartment, and later at the trial during which she handled herself impeccably and emerged in triumph like the lady she is.
