The Big Bang Theory
In a recent episode of The Big Bang Theory, Leonard’s girlfriend gave him a sweater with a bird on it. I want this sweater. — Justin
Nerdy Leonard (Johnny Galecki) was anything but birdbrained to wear this pullover from Modern Amusement, a clothing designer in Costa Mesa, Calif., that’s inspired by everything from artist Mark Rothko to those devices that measure your shoe size. The sweater is sold out, but a T-shirt version can be found at modernamusement.com ($29).
Where did Padma Lakshmi get the dress and necklace she wore to Gail’s bridal shower on Top Chef? — Julie
Donna Karan has already told the pintuck frock to pack its knives and go (from the pre — fall 2007 line, it is no longer available in stores). However, the necklace will be sold this spring by Lakshmi’s own label. (Visit padmalakshmi.com for updates.)
This has been driving me bananas: Who makes the sailor-like coat that Zooey Deschanel wears in Yes Man? — Kristin
Her wool coat was a vintage find by costumer Mark Bridges, who updated it with new buttons. The ”ladylike and funky” combo, he says, made the ’60s-era jacket a perfect fit for Deschanel’s quirky character. For a modern take, check out Lauren Moffatt’s Long Epaulet Coat from revolveclothing.com ($335).
