Urban Outfitters has strongly denied allegations, fueled by a Twitter frenzy, that it stole a necklace design from a jewelry artist in Chicago. In a statement Saturday, the Philadelphia fashion-and-accessories company said it "unequivocally" had not copied the work of Stevie Koerner. Koerner, who makes silver necklaces in the shape of American states with hearts punched through them, took to her Twitter account Wednesday to accuse the chain of illegally copying her work. She posted pictures of her necklaces alongside photos of strikingly similar ones sold by Urban Outfitters.

TATTLE HAS GONE so long without a Lindsay Lohan item, we were beginning to miss her. But she's back - in the case of the purloined necklace. L.A. police got a search warrant Tuesday to look for a $2,500 stolen necklace at Lindsay's home near Venice Beach, but before detectives could execute the warrant, someone - police wouldn't say who - turned in the necklace. Lindsay says it was her stylist - who had forgotten to return the necklace earlier. Now Lohan, who is still on probation for a 2007 drunken-driving case, is being investigated for possible grand theft, Officer Bruce Borihanh said yesterday.

PROSECUTORS said yesterday that they plan to charge Lindsay Lohan with felony grand theft of a $2,500 necklace reported stolen from a jewelry store last month - the most serious count the actress has faced in more than three years of trouble with the law. District Attorney's spokeswoman Jane Robison said the charge will be filed today. Lohan, 24, is due in court for an arraignment this afternoon. Last Wednesday Los Angeles police said that Lohan was under investigation for taking a necklace from a Venice store later identified as Kamofie and Co. Detectives obtained a search warrant to try to retrieve the item from Lohan's home, but it was turned in to a police station before any search was made.

The movie, which opened yesterday on 4,000 screens in 3,000 theaters, has sown a national conversation about faith and salvation. Now, retailers of jewelry, books, music and mugs are poised to reap earthly rewards from The Passion of the Christ. Stores both religious and secular are stocking goodies officially licensed by Mel Gibson's Icon Productions, and say they're running out of the movie's signature piece of jewelry - a pewter nail on a leather strap. And a spinoff effect is being felt in brisk sales of DVDs, CDs and books related to Christ's Passion, if not Gibson's.

Jumpsuits - whether toe-touching, strapless, or cap sleeve rompers - are among the most versatile of this spring's fashions. Yet despite the slip-on appeal of the all-in-one, we tend to ascribe age limits and height requirements when it comes to deciding who can wear them. "Jumpsuits aren't appropriate for women over ___ ," or "You need to be at least ___ to pull one off. " Nothing could be further from the truth. To prove it, we asked two pairs of mothers and daughters - different heights, ages, and sizes - to model a pair of complementary jumpsuits.

After growing out of my Hawaiian shorts-suit obsession back in the 1980s, I let most of the floral prints in my wardrobe go. The big blooms were just too busy for my burgeoning minimalist tastes. Not only were those flowery designs loud, but they also came with too many rules. Sheer peony blouses were cheap-girl no-nos. Patterns always matched. Colors never clashed. And after Labor Day, all things hyacinth- and hydrangea-covered were buried in the back of the closet. It's no wonder I'm a fan of this spring's verdant vibe.
