New Year’s Eve: Where They Were When The Ball Dropped

-------

When 2010 became 2011, the real action (sorry, Snooki) was in Vegas, where Jay-Z and Coldplay’s Chris Martin teamed up for a special concert to open the new Marquee at the Cosmopolitan—a concert that drew wives Beyoncé and Gwyneth Paltrow as well as Kanye, Rihanna, Blake Lively, J. Lo, A-Rod, and more. Meanwhile, in Miami, Chloë Sevigny hosted a bash at the Mondrian with Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt that brought out Leigh Lezark and Leona Lewis, and Nur Khan partied at Kenmare and Don Hill’s in New York City, where his photographer pal Sante D’Orazio set up Sante’s Inferno.

Will You Join The Peek-A-Boo Pack In 2011?

-------

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.

Shoe In

-------

According to reports, Blake Lively walked away from a Christian Louboutin sample sale recently with 40 pairs in tow. She came clean at last night’s 24th Annual Footwear News Achievement Awards. “Like any addict, the first step is admitting the problem,” Lively, in Prabal Gurung and black and white Louboutin booties, said. “I’ve ordered so many pairs that I should be institutionalized!” That being the case, who better to present the designer with this year’s Person of the Year award? (And why Person of the Year versus Designer of the Year, an award which went to Brian Atwood? Louboutin himself wasn’t entirely sure. “I was in the car today actually thinking about [it],” he said. “I had to think deeply, which rarely happens to me.” Person or designer, when it comes to process, Louboutin keeps it simple. “For me, it always starts with a pen and a piece of paper.” It ends, if last night was any indication, with red soles clacking everywhere.)

Among the Louboutin-clad army last night was Jessica Alba, on hand to present Blake Mycoskie of TOMS Shoes with the Brand of the Year award. (She deemed her studded black CL pumps “hardcore.”) Her footwear fixation, she revealed, seems to run in the family. “She is obsessed with shoes,” Alba, in a natty D&G suit, said of her daughter, Honor. “It’s a little bit of a problem. She tries to wear her plastic high heels out and we’re like, ‘No.’ She can wear them in the house and that’s it.”

Honor would have been in like-minded company last night. There wasn’t a pair of kitten heels, much less flats, in the house, all of which suited Atwood just fine. “I do try and make it comfortable, but I like them high,” Atwood, who celebrated afterward with an intimate fête at Jimmy at the James Hotel, said. “Everything is lifted and it puts a little strut in your step,” he explained. Olivia Palermo, who accompanied Emerging Talent Award winner Charlotte Dellal (and was wearing her shoes), was in the same camp. “The higher the better!”

Lorraine Schwartz Is A Girl’s Best Friend

-------

When Jay-Z decided he liked it—it being Beyoncé—and to put a ring on it, he went with one from jeweler Lorraine Schwartz. So no surprise to find the singer at the debut of Schwartz’s 2BHappy collection at Lavo in New York last night (and not much of a surprise to find her more than fashionably late, either).

But Beyoncé wasn’t the only famous friend who came to toast the occasion. Mary J. Blige, Blake Lively, Kim Kardashian, and Ashanti all dropped by to see the new collection. “Lorraine always does what you are thinking about or what you are dreaming about,” Blige said of her longtime friend. “She’s not limited with her artistic ability—she always goes to the left or to the right, [but] it’s never to the left of where you can’t wear it.”

Lively (left, with Beyoncé and Schwartz) has never seemed to have a hard time wearing it—she’s often decked out in the designer’s jewels. (Last night, she was sporting diamond drop earrings and an armful of LS bangles with her Versace dress.) “It’s the little girl in me,” Lively admitted. “We are attracted to sparkles.” She was attracted to one in particular—a happy-face bracelet from the new line, intended to encourage happiness in the wearer. “This is probably my new favorite piece by her,” the Gossip Girl star said.

Yea, Nay, Or Eh? Blake Goes Buggy

-------


It didn’t take long for Alber Elbaz’s Spring ’11 Lanvin collection to make its real-world debut. Blake Lively donned the opening look from the new collection—one of the tone-setting long, slit-skirt numbers, complete with Elie Top’s fabulously bedazzled bug at the neck—for this weekend’s Spike TV Scream Awards. She dressed up the look with a loose ponytail and a wristful of bangles, but her main accessories were her admittedly great gams: The actress spent most of the night holding her skirt open, lest you miss them. We love the look, which Blake does proud, but could do with a little less of the big reveal. What say you—yea, nay, or eh?
