· Laura Bush has a new 'do and new bling. We've confirmed an MSNBC report that Toka Salon owner Nuri Yurt of Georgetown is now managing the first lady's softer-looking coif. (FYI: A cut goes for $80, while color is $70.) Meanwhile, Mrs. Bush's sparkling jewelry caught many eyes during her Saturday night surprise speech at the White House Correspondents' Association dinner. Her crystal necklace and matching earrings were the handiwork of Georgetown jewelry designer Ann Hand, who created the set from different sizes of Swarovski crystals. She calls the necklace the Waterfall. And the price? "To tell you the truth, I can't remember," Hand said yesterday.

· About 300 friends of Russian culture gathered at the Russian Embassy last night to announce the establishment of a museum dedicated to the work of famed jeweler Carl Faberge. Among notable supporters at the benefit: pianist Van Cliburn and Mikhail Piotrovsky , director of the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, where the Faberge Museum and Center will be housed.

· An online gambling casino has nabbed the mouths-agape category with its $5,100 purchase of an alleged Britney Spears pregnancy test found in a trash bin outside a Los Angeles hotel. A radio station initially bought the urine test, then sold it to GoldenPalace.com. "It's hard to put a price on Britney Spears's urine," a casino spokesman told the Associated Press on Wednesday. (Quotes like that: priceless.)

Annals of Puffery

"Women who lust after the look of cosmetic breast implants can strap on an eye-fooling alternative this summer with the new Evolution by Margarita bra, designed by Brastraps.com founder Margarita Reis . Evolution is a revolutionary five-in-one underwire, convertible bra made of a smooth microfiber nylon/Lycra spandex mix . . . .

" 'The best bra should lift and separate each breast, so that your chest doesn't wind up looking like your derriere . . . ,' says Daniel Man , a board-certified plastic surgeon in Boca Raton, Fla. He is the originator of the quick recovery breast augmentation procedure."
