It was the haircut heard ’round the internet. That’d be Emma Watson’s Mia Farrow-ish crop, which the starlet revealed on Twitter and which, by our count, has earned her unanimous praise. (When our beauty-obsessed sister blog put it up for discussion the comments came flooding in.) Watson stepped out today to unveil the poster for the next (and next-to-last) Harry Potter flick, and rocked a shorts suit to accentuate her new short ‘do. We love Watson in the lacy, long-sleeved onesie, which—though a little much for a day at the office—is playful, sexy, and fun on the star. We say, if she’s making a case for life after Hermione, she’s doing a good job. What say you?
Emma Watson can thank Burberry’s Christopher Bailey for playing Cupid—the actress and repeat Burberry model met her new boyfriend, musician George Craig, on set at a campaign shoot for the label (left). Now Watson’s popped up in the new music video from Craig’s band, One Night Only (below). (Gawker gleefully notes that this new role poses challenges, such as having her face licked.) The song itself, “Say You Don’t Want It,” is admittedly a transmission from some of the more well-trod chambers of radio-friendly Britpop, but Watson looks cute (both before and after it’s revealed that she happens to be a dog). That alone ought to make it worth the four minutes’ viewing time—at least until the next Harry Potter flick.
A boatload of the hottest young English designers at a fête hosted by the English starlet (cum-American-collegian) Emma Watson? Ignore the passed pizzas at Pulino’s, New York’s hot spot to be, and you could believe you were hobnobbing on the other side of the Atlantic. No surprise, then, that hostess Watson opted to appear in a Fall ’10 frock by Christopher Kane. Kane’s leather-and-lace looks have been getting a lot of play from fashion types and celebrities alike, but we think this one looks bewitching (couldn’t resist!) on Emma. With details like these, you don’t need much else, and Watson lets her hair down and accessorizes simply with black pumps and a small gold clutch. We say she does the motherland proud. How about you?

Collective sigh, please: Gossips are reporting that former Dior spokeswoman Charlize Theron and her partner of nine years, Stuart Townsend, have called it quits. We can’t help wondering who the poor girl will take to the Oscars now. (Our guess? Absolutely any guy she wants.) [NY Daily News]
New York magazine writes the latest chapter in the mountain-man ethnography with its complete guide to the “Urban Woodsman.” From where to buy your vintage Red Wings (J.Crew) to where to buy your decorative ax (Best Made Co.), they’ve got you covered. For finding actual woods to beat your chest in, though, you’re on your own. [NY Mag]
Bloomingdale’s opens in Dubai, with all the over-the-top amenities you’d expect: a three-story glass “drum” for handbags and denim, a bevy of shop-in-shops, and 9,400 square feet of shoes. Global recession says what? [WWD]

Word on the street is that Emma Watson’s little bro, Alex—last seen co-starring with his sister in Burberry’s Spring campaign—will hit the runway for the label in London later this month. Is some Hogwartian spell behind this? (Well, the family good looks don’t hurt, either…) [Fashionista]
NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg is gathering the troops at Macy’s Herald Square tonight to discuss his office’s new, yearlong fashion retail initiative, Fashion NYC 2020. The issues on the table include job creation for the next decade and how to amp up NYC’s presence in the increasingly international world of fashion. Our suggestion: If the inaugural Fashion’s Night Out is any indication, getting the Olsen twins to bartend seems to get people interested. [WWD]
