ON OUR COVER Keri Russell gives us many reasons to love her as a cover girl, but among her fabulous qualities is her passion for a smart buy. The 32-year-old actress, who appears this month with Adam Sandler in the comedy Bedtime Stories, was immediately drawn to the Gatsby-esqe gown that ended up on our cover. "The detailed beading and cut around the's like something from a Paris couturier," Russell said. And when she learned it was under $300 and from Banana Republic, she adored it even more. "It's important that fashion be reasonable. So it's great to find something as special and accessible as this."
