The End of The Stuart Era, How To Rough It (Or Just Look Like You Do), And More…

-------

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]

Emma Watson tends to pick Burberry for the red carpet, but she can now rock her own line for lounging at home: Her eco-friendly collection for the U.K.’s People Tree goes on sale today. [Vogue U.K.]

Dossier speaks with CFDA-nominated shoemaker George Esquivel and finds he drew inspiration for his much-beloved spectators, wingtips, and flats from The Monkees, The Brady Bunch, and The Partridge Family. We’ll expect the All in the Family collection any day now. [Dossier]

2020: A Fashion Odyssey, Burberry To Keep It In the Family? And More…

-------

The rumor mill was working overtime this weekend, buzzing with speculation that gallerist Jeffrey Deitch is set to be tapped as the new director of L.A.’s Museum of Contemporary Art. The official word comes through today. [LAT]

English model Sophie Dahl married her jazz musician boyfriend Jamie Cullum in the U.K. this weekend. In place of our usual quip, we’ll just leave you with a smitten awwww. [Vogue U.K.]

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]

Opening Ceremony and Levi’s have confirmed they’re working on a collaboration (pictured)—first hinted at on Twitter last week—to hit stores next month. The collection will focus on corduroy and launch at OC stores in NYC, L.A., and Tokyo during New York fashion week. [WWD]

Blasblog: Roberta’s New York Layover

-------

“I love coming to New York,” Roberta Armani announced at Lauren Santo Domingo’s dinner in her honor at the Standard this weekend. “In fact, I’d like to move. Someone find me a good reason—a husband, perhaps—and I’ll set up here.” If it’s a sportsman she’s after, there were a few on hand at the de facto after-party upstairs at the Boom Boom Room. Tatiana Santo Domingo, Jen Brill, Amy Greenspon, Hayley Bloomingdale, and Emma Watson were mingling with a few of the Rangers—Sean Avery, Aaron Voros, and Michael Del Zotto, all perhaps drowning their sorrows after their loss earlier in the evening to the Florida Panthers. Might be a good match; Armani travels about as much as a pro athlete. She’d hardly settled in when she had to make her way out, flying to L.A. for the American Music Awards and then, ten hours later, back to New York to host a dinner for Cate Blanchett at the Armani restaurant in the brand’s Fifth Avenue flagship tonight before continuing to Milan.

Yay, Nay, or Eh: Posh or Potter?

-------

Of the bevy of paparazzi darlings—Mary-Kate Olsen, Freida Pinto, Alexa Chung—who turned up at Burberry to close out London fashion week on a high note, few drew the flashbulbs like Victoria Beckham and Emma Watson. The two Brits worked radically different frocks. Posh was prim and ladylike in a black Spring 2010 look from her eponymous collection, while Watson looked every inch the fun-loving college frosh in a shimmery custom Burberry Prorsum minidress. We’re partial to the Harry Potter star’s attire. Not only did she shine (literally), but the festive outfit likely looked just right as the metallic confetti poured from the rafters at the close of the show. What do you think? Is it better to play it cool à la Vicky B., or is Hermione’s sparkle an ideal front-row look?

Yea, Nay, Or Eh: Is It Leather Weather?

-------

Sure, it was the slightest bit on the cool side last night, but was it nippy enough for a leather jumpsuit? Yes, according to Chloë Sevigny, who wore a tough-chic belted black leather jumpsuit to Proenza Schouler’s celebration of their A Magazine #9. In all fairness, it was a Spring look, shown last year on Proenza’s runway over a sleeveless white shirt. But in real life, the full-leather look worn in high summer gives us pause; thank God the humidity was low. (On a side note, it represents a bit of a silhouette shift for Sevigny, who, especially as of late, often covers up her arms in favor of showing her enviable gams.) Last week, for the Harry Potter premiere, Emma Watson also wore a Proenza Schouler leather look, this one a dress consisting of a black leather halter top and white leather bottom from the designers’ latest Resort collection. Though it’s still all leather, Watson’s look is a lighter and more fitting way to rock a skin in the summer, though of course we respect Sevigny’s talent for breaking fashion rules. Tell us what you think. Would you wear leather in July?
