Tee(n) Queen

Mandy Moore offers ''Coverage'' with T-shirt line -- The singer-actress has created Mblem., a line of vintage-looking shirts emblazoned with her favorite song lyrics from Joni Mitchell, Elton John, and others

Mandy Moore, star of the fundamentalist-skewering comedy ''Saved!,'' has a passion for fashion. The hyphenate is launching Mblem., a line of T-shirts ($52 to $64), in high-end boutiques and department stores this June. ''They're cool, fitted, vintage-y shirts with lines from my favorite songs,'' says Moore, whose choice of muted colors (dusty pinks, grays, browns) mimics well-worn favorites. So which rock gods rated a place on her tees? Moore -- whose album ''Coverage'' featured reworkings of retro classics -- chose lyrics from Blondie, Joni Mitchell, Elton John, the Beatles, Janis Joplin, and Marvin Gaye. A percentage of proceeds will go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Maybe you can find salvation through shopping.
