Eva Mendes stars in Anchorman director Adam McKay’s new flick, The Other Guys, where she plays Will Ferrell’s impossibly hot wife. Her dress at the film’s NYC premiere last night? Somewhere a little below that. Mendes selected a silvery gray number from Oscar de la Renta’s Resort collection, complete with a detachable, bow-tied puff around the waist. She accessorized the look with Sergio Rossi peep-toes and a chic, slicked-back pony. The peplum detail flatters Eva’s hourglass shape, and we think the rain-cloud color looks great on her. What do you think? Is Eva’s look a storm waiting to happen, or does it send you to Cloud Nine?
I’ve been crazy for gingham lately, and I’m not alone. Take Isaac Mizrahi. As he told us at his Resort presentation, gingham “is like a solid with a lot of personality.” The usual country red and royal blue ginghams have their place, but they don’t feel as fresh to me as the soft, floaty grays (and their near cousins, washed-out blacks and even watery blues) that have been cropping up everywhere, from street-style blogs to runways. There’s something so much more ethereal about the silvery tones, almost neutral; they’ll transition seamlessly from summer sun to the fall wardrobe. I love how Harper’s Bazaar Australia’s Christine Centenera pairs her gray gingham skirt with nude colors, or how the models Tommy Ton captures throw it on over whatever they’re wearing (pictured). Karl showed some lovely gingham looks at Chanel’s big Resort bash in Saint-Tropez, too, and Eva Mendes is a fan—she wore Dior’s version to the premiere of her movie The Other Guys in Cancún.

Suave overload: Guy Ritchie is shooting Jude Law for a Dior Homme fragrance ad. We’re a little concerned so much roguishness in one place may throw the earth off its orbit, but it’s a risk worth taking. [WWD]
And speaking of models, rumor has it that Lara Stone is to be the new face of both Calvin Klein Collection and Calvin Klein jeans—a tribute, perhaps, to her high-fashion chops and her sexy (and much-remarked-upon) curves. CK is keeping mum, but if we were Eva Mendes, we’d be hitting the audition circuit a little harder right now. [WWD]
And since it’s been almost a full week without an Alice in Wonderland update, here’s your fix: Mad jeweler Tom Binns talks tea parties and smashing baubles in this new video interview. [Youtube]
Given their Old Hollywood (that is, glamorously retro) meets New Hollywood (that is, face-covering) style, no wonder that Oliver Peoples’ Annice frames have been sported by stars like Eva Mendes. But now the brand is cranking up the wattage even further, offering the style in white and yellow gold inlaid with pavé diamonds. As you might imagine, these are, shall we say, prohibitively priced. But if you’ve got around $25,000 to burn, they’re available at Ilori boutiques in Vegas (yellow gold with yellow diamonds) and on Rodeo Drive (white gold with white diamonds), the only two places on earth—well, besides Moscow—where they might conceivably find a buyer.
