With the Dancing With the Stars finale finally upon us Tuesday night, we couldn’t be any more thrilled that one of our early favorites, Amy Purdy, will be dancing for that coveted Mirror Ball Trophy (against other formidable contenders Candace Cameron Bure and Meryl Davis). Obviously the Paralympic snowboarder‘s success can be attributed to a ton of hard work with partner Derek Hough (and some specially designed “new feet”), but we had to ask: Does the athlete have anything that she keeps in her bag at all times for good luck?

“Not sure if it’s superstitious, but I always carry an Allen wrench just in case a bolt in my leg comes loose,” she tells PEOPLE. “It rarely happens but I always think the one time I don’t carry one it will happen.” Makes plenty of sense to us — a loose bolt would definitely be the unluckiest thing to happen to the dancing queen on the biggest night of the competition.

What do you get a mom of six (who happens to be a movie star) for Mother’s Day? Angelina Jolie‘s 5-year-old son came up with a creative answer: a doodle of her latest role, transformed into an etched gold ring.

Of course, Knox’s dad, Brad Pitt — who presented the Maleficent star with a very different ring in 2012 — had a hand in the sweet surprise.

“Brad’s really creative with the kids, so they made a bunch of things like pillows and notebooks,” Jolie tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “Knoxy made me a picture of Maleficent that they made into a ring.” Read More

Jennifer Lopez is known for her stunning fashion choices, but she not only strives to look great, she wants to smell fantastic as well.

“Scents, for me, create memories in my mind so fragrance has always been a big part of that,” the American Idol judge tells PEOPLE.

And Lopez, 44, makes sure she has a large hand in the fragrances she wears, because she designs them herself.

“Sometimes I will just be inspired, and I’ll say ‘Put a pin in this. I love the smell of this candle right here,'” she says. “And then from there we will build on different things just so it is fresh and new. I’m always thinking about it.” Read More

Rihanna‘s closet contains a wide variety of looks. For example, her mint crop top ensemble landed a spot in our Love Her Outfit gallery this week. But the singer proves she’s the queen of pulling a style 180° at any given moment (and literally isn’t afraid to wear anything), attending the iHeart Radio Music Awards in L.A. Thursday in a sheer couture Givenchy design (below) that had our heads spinning. Read More

Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir were the talk of the Sochi Olympics thanks to their spot-on commentating and always on-point fashion choices. And now the dynamic duo is bringing their show on the road — first to the Oscars (see their very memorable try on session here) and now to the Kentucky Derby. Lipinski and Weir debuted their first fabulous hats today, with many more to come over the course of the weekend. And Lipinski was kind enough to take us inside her hat-shopping session before she left town. Check out her options and make sure to watch Johnny’s top topper advice for his pal, all below.

Obviously Lipinski is incredibly excited for the fashion, but second most of all, she says she can’t wait to immerse herself in the Derby experience. “I love the charm and lifestyle of the South so going to the parties and seeing all the amazing outfits and hats will definitely be a highlight,” she tells PEOPLE. “I also can’t wait to attend the parties and maybe try my first mint julep. I might bet on the race so you can be sure I will be screaming along the sidelines for my horse.”

Erin Andrews is no stranger to sideline reporting — and when combined with her experience as a former Dancing With the Stars finalist, she certainly knew a bit about what to expect from her new gig as a host on the show. But even she couldn’t be prepared for the kinds of challenges she faces every week.

For example: “Wearing high heels and strapless bras! I’m used to wearing flats and boots, not gowns,” she tells PEOPLE, laughing. “I worry about the mic packs strapped to my strapless bra pulling it down, and my forty pieces of hair extensions. [My hair got caught in someone's sleeve] and I grabbed my head to see if my weave was still on. Those kinds of things are different.”
