What do Blake Lively, January Jones, and Emma Stone (above) have in common? Plenty, upon consideration: blond hair, long legs, magazine covers, fiery hot acting careers…also: sunglasses. Lively, Jones, and Stone are just a few of the trendsetting celebs who have nabbed pairs of Pret-a-Surf‘s soon-to-debut sunglasses, made with the L.A.-based label KBL. The frames mark Pret-a-Surf’s first collaboration, and they pick up the red motif of the brand’s beachwear. “I’m sure you’ve noticed the red zipper on many of our looks,” points out Jillian Demling, who co-founded Pret-a-Surf with Karen Mulligan last year. According to Demling, both she and Mulligan have picked up multiple pairs of KBL sunglasses since the brand launched in 2007, and they immediately cottoned onto KBL cat-eyes as a fitting adjunct to Pret-a-Surf’s sporting take on vintage pinup style. “We wanted shades that our girl could wear playing tennis, surfing, or just lying on the beach.” Or, as it turns out, ducking the paparazzi.

The next edition of everyone’s favorite calendar that almost no one actually receives—that’d be the racy Pirelli calendar, naturally—is reportedly now in the works. The photog of choice for the 2012 edition? Sources says it’s Steven Meisel. [Fashionologie]
A fond farewell to Don Hill’s, the legendary and then resurgent club that briefly became a fashion-world hub when Nur Khan and Paul Sevigny took it over from eponymous founder Don Hill. (Hill passed away at the end of last month.) Its next act: condos. Sigh. [Gawker]
Give Blake Lively credit for resourcefulness. When celebrity photographer Patrick McMullan stepped on her train at last night’s Time 100 gala and ripped it off, she raced to the bathroom, where she managed to repair it with a couple safety pins and a smile. And here we thought only Kate Moss had the superhuman ability to bounce back from a train-wreck like this one! [NY Mag]
As part of the CFDA’s effort to raise funds for Japan, the organization solicited designers and industry insiders to donate one-of-a-kind experiences—from a week’s stay at DVF’s Bahamas manse to a meeting with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen—for a charitable auction. If you’re still interested in bidding, today’s your last day; the sale ends tomorrow at 2 p.m. [CharityBuzz]
The latest designer to partner up with Chrome Hearts, the rock-inspired jewelry label that’s a favorite of Karl Lagerfeld’s and that has collaborated with Rick Owens, Comme des Garçons, and Chanel, is…Kate Hudson? That’s a ring from her new CH + KH collection, left. [WWD]

Speaking of cute blondes, good news for another one, too: Anja Rubik and her boyfriend, fellow model Sasha Knezevic, are engaged. (That’s the two of them posing together for a Gap ad, left.) Congrats to the happy—and altogether too good-looking—couple. [Huffington Post]
Under Guillaume Henry, Carven has been on the upswing as of late, and this year, the label will open its first store, on Paris’ rue Saint Sulpice. [Vogue U.K.]
Sometimes people ask, why have Twitter? Sometimes we answer, to get five days’ worth of Daphne Guinness self-portraits in real time. If you’re still holding out on the 140-character transmissions, Hint Mag has helpfully rounded up the shots. [Hint]
And the Times profiles Brooklyn retailer Ouigi Theodore of The Brooklyn Circus, who hopes to refine urban style in a more dandified mold. “My dream is to see guys hanging on the corner in suits,” he told the paper. [NYT]
We’ve seen sheer on runways here, there, and everywhere for the past several seasons. But in 2010, daring starlets like Blake Lively and Emma Watson took transparency to the red carpets, offering fans suggestive glimpses of bare skin. At the Paris Vogue Bal Masqué—arguably the fashion fête of the year—diaphanous dressing was practically mandatory.
Editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld set the tone in a Givenchy number with a few well-placed leopard spots (a hint that she was about to take a leap?). The dresses that supes Mariacarla, Natalia, and Lily D.
slipped into for the occasion, meanwhile, left just as little to the imagination. And see-through isn’t just for after-dark, as this photo of Abbey Lee Kershaw demonstrates, although it does help to have legs up to your neck.
