Great Legs And Ham

-------


This weekend, the 2010 MTV Europe Music Awards took place in Madrid, and a few of pop’s bigger stars (and their stylists) worked overtime to get their Spring ’11 dresses ready. Among those representing the U.S. of A. in Spain were Rihanna, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, and hostess Eva Longoria Parker, who cycled through a variety of costume changes throughout the evening.

The MTV awards are no Oscars, so the stars took the opportunity to have a little fun. Perry showed a little leg in a jokey but undeniably glam Spring ’11 Jeremy Scott ticket-stub dress with electric blue Sergio Rossi heels. Rihanna and Cyrus, on the other hand, both went long: RiRi in a one-shoulder tulle gown from Marchesa Spring ’11, Miley in a tiered, tied-with-a-bow D&G. For her part, Longoria Parker worked Emilio Pucci, Gianfranco Ferré, and Georges Hobeika at various points, but her most indelible look was her mock homage to the host country’s culinary tradition: a giant Serrano ham. Not the lady’s best look, but give her points for being a good sport.

Check them out above and let us know—whose look do you like best?

LITTER On The Runway

-------

Christian Cota managed a neat little double play Sunday night, when Leighton Meester and Eva Longoria Parker were snapped rocking Cota on red carpets on either coast. And when we say “either coast,” what we mean—obviously—is that Leighton was in Manhattan and Longoria Parker was in L.A. Are there any other places that matter, style-wise? Rachael Mann and Mackenzie Burdick are currently making the case for the Bay. The San Francisco-based sisters design the line LITTER, launched last year, which includes headpieces and body jewelry made (primarily) from secondhand jewelry the designers pick up at thrifts and flea markets. The sisters’ chains that go over boots and shoes have already earned their brand some chatter. This afternoon, the buzz is due to rise to a roar, as new LITTER pieces make their appearance on the girls at the Christian Cota presentation. As Cota explained between fittings, his show stylist happened upon LITTER on a trip to San Fran a few months back, so she did the natural thing and coaxed the designers back to New York. Congrats, girls: Now that you’re here, you matter.

Lingerie Miami Brings the Sizzle

-------

While New Yorkers mostly stuck to indoor activities this weekend, guests at Lingerie Miami Saturday night were happy to be al fresco. The flesh-friendly host city flaunted some of its best assets at the outdoor fashion show in front of the majestic Vizcaya palazzo in Coral Gables, and while a retreating cold front tried to spoil the fun, the models seemed oblivious to their goose bumps. Host Eva Longoria Parker had a personal space heater brought in, and after enough getups from Agent Provocateur, Fifi Chachnil, and Carine Gilson, the air felt downright sultry.

Agent Provocateur made the most of it, presenting 35 creatively accessorized looks (a whip here, a shopping cart there) and, naturellement, a few takes on the French maid. “A girl that comes out in lingerie and is able to walk the walk will make a man do anything. It’s like a superhero costume for women,” brand creator Joe Corre mused afterward. Expect to see more sexy crime fighters on a runway near you: Organizer Renata M. Black is planning to hold a similar event in New York next February. “Victoria’s Secret can only be a monopoly for so long,” she pointed out.

Proceeds from the evening went toward loans for underprivileged women, a gesture that guest speaker Deepak Chopra (who rubbed elbows with the likes of Elsa Benitez, Ines Rivero, and co-host Veronica Webb) linked to the larger imperative to “harness the female elements and forces of the universe” in the hope of ultimately achieving world peace. Who knew lace corsets could do all that?
