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.

Click for a slideshow, and let us know who you think made the best sheer statement in 2010.

London Fashion Week Is Off To A Royal Start

-------

Nothing like a royal benediction to kick off fashion week, and last night, that’s exactly what London got. At the lawn of Clarence House (Prince Charles’ London pad), Mayor Boris Johnson, Livia Firth (the eco-minded Mrs. Colin), Laura Bailey and a smattering of ladies, lords and baronets attended an eco-sustainable fashion show, presented as part of the Prince’s START festival. (For those not in the know, the old guy is rather a hippie where the environment is concerned.) Appropriate pieces from Stella McCartney, Vivienne Westwood and Emma Watson’s collection for People Tree hit the catwalk, with Erin O’Connor leading the way. The garments were made of recycled fabrics, buttons, and military-issue shirts. (Scratch that, the Prince’s people are calling it “upcycled” rather than “recycled”—upcycled is “the more fashionable cousin.”) The whole thing charmingly embodied England’s old post-war credo of “make do and mend.”

Speaking of making do, who couldn’t make do with a vending machine that sells couture instead of M&M’s?  LOVE‘s Katie Grand and Selfridges got together to create such a vending machine, which will be housed for the duration of LFW in the lobby of the swankiest hotel in London, St Martin’s Lane. (Appropriate, considering it’s the temporary home to tons of visiting editors, models, photogs, buyers, and fashion clients.) Grand ran riot through Selfridges and cherry-picked her favorite items for the 32-slot LOVE Machine (below). It dispenses a Stella McCartney Falabella bag (left), an Alexander Wang leather and sequin dress, a one-off pair of Rick Owens trainers customized by Chrome Hearts, exclusive Dior nail polishes, Diptyque Mimosa candles exclusive to Selfridges in their signature yellow, and for the gents, Falke’s new “secret socks” for men. A word to the wise, though: Know your size. It’s tough to return an item to a vending machine.

Yea, Nay, Or Eh? Short And Sweet

-------

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?

Young Love, Sponsored By Burberry

-------

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.

Yea, Nay, Or Eh? Flower Power

-------

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?
