CHARMS OF WOMEN: Jamie Lee Curtis shies away from most jewelry, but was happily sporting a guardian charm pendant from Cathy Waterman's latest collection, called Muse, on Thursday. "It says to me, 'I have your back,'" explained Curtis, who opened her well-appointed Pacific Palisades, Calif., home for a garden party in honor of the jeweler. Waterman created the collection's seven charms to fete women's unheralded qualities. Among the attendees, Waterman pointed to California first lady Maria Shriver and restaurateur Nancy Silverton as the muses for her wellspring and dreamer charms, respectively. And she declared the rest of the crowd, including Dana Delaney, Jamie McCourt, Patricia Wetting and Kate and Jessica Capshaw, definitely "all goddesses." Proceeds from jewelry sales at the event went to the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles and UCLA's Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center.

CLOTHES MAKE THE MAN: Fall Out Boy Pete Wentz was in New York on Thursday at the Night Hotel to show off his latest Clandestine Industries collection of junior and men's apparel to a group of editors. But that didn't mean he didn't make time to shop a bit. "I love H&M and Urban Outfitters," he said. "I'm so not above shopping there or anything. They have such cool stuff and it's not expensive." Wentz's fiancée, Ashlee Simpson, was in town, too, but she was headed to Condé Nast Traveler's "Hot List" party at Mansion. "She's helped me a bit here and there. She's good like that," he said of Simpson's help with designing the collection.

DIRTY LAUNDRY: Rejection letters have never been so fashionable. Amira Casar, Audrey Marnay and Melanie Laurent were among the stylish throngs at the Paris inauguration of artist Sophie Calle's "Take Care of Yourself" show, hosted by Chanel last week in the impressive reading room of Paris' Bibliothèque Nationale. The Venice Biennale hit, which next will travel to Montreal, centers on a break-up letter that Calle once received from a boyfriend via e-mail. "My worst memory of being dumped is when it happened on my birthday," mused Casar, who appears in one of the show's films reading Calle's letter. "I can remember sobbing in the rain and Isabelle Adjani coming to pick me up in a taxi — she has such a big heart," Casar said.
