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?
Are soap operas the new side project? Following James Franco’s star turn on General Hospital—part of an elaborate art piece we still don’t entirely understand—designer Jeremy Scott is making his daytime debut today on The Young and the Restless (pictured). He plays (no great stretch) a designer. [Hint Mag]
Christian Lacroix’s new gig: artistic adviser to the French Mint?! Strange but true—and his first project is designing medals celebrating marriage and PACs (the French equivalent of civil unions). We can’t help but hope that while he’s kicking around the Mint, he can pocket a few extra euros to get his line going again. [WWD]
DVF’s rooms at London’s Claridge’s hotel, revealed! We were hoping for wrap-dress curtains, but we’ll take bold, graphic-print headboards. [T]
And happy 100th birthday, Women’s Wear Daily. You don’t look a day over 65. [Fashionista]
For his first bricks-and-mortar vintage store, the Cobra Shop, Mark Hunter (left)—better known as the Cobra Snake—picked the overrun tourist trap that is the Hollywood and Highland mega-mall. Somehow, it fits. Hunter’s always been one to mine the good taste in bad taste—or vice versa? “I think it’s all about contrast with this place and where it is,” said Todd “The Selby” Selby, in town to promote his book with a party at the as-yet-unopened shop. “People just come and say ‘wow.’ ” As a connoisseur of spaces, he ought to know. Selby’s even gone so far as to create what he and Hunter are calling a bootleg version of The Selby tome, one that features three new chapters of photographs, of Hunter and his grandparents. (Said grandparents were in attendance, too, signing books and posters.)
Selby helped to curate the amassed collection of exclusive merchandise and designer collaborations, including archival pieces from his friend Jeremy Scott, limited-edition screen prints by Shepard Fairey, shoes from DJ Steve Aoki’s personal collection, and select RVCA x Cobra Shop designs. In between finding himself on the other side of the lens, mugging for the camera with Peaches Geldof and designer-in-residence Jeremy Scott, the interiors expert took a moment to appreciate the peculiar genius of the space. “The store just reminds me of what I think Mark’s brain looks like,” he mused, “which is a huge compliment to both.”

Update: Solange weighed in via Twitter to fill in the missing link in the chain. The friend who sent her “Stillness Is the Move” cover to Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor is Ethan Silverman, who co-founded Terrible Records with Taylor and runs Silverhawk Management with Molly Hawkins. We’ve added him below.
One day, Solange Knowles was Beyoncé’s radio-friendly little sister. And then, practically overnight, she became a cool-kid sensation, headlining one of the biggest parties of fashion week, the Opening Ceremony/Ace Hotel opening party, where she was backed by indie favorites the Dirty Projectors. That’s no accident: Solange shot to the top of the Pitchfork charts with an inspired cover of the Projectors’ “Stillness Is the Move.” How did Solange and the band come together? A new interview with New York magazine has the answer, which involves a complicated trail of e-mails that brings together the music, fashion, and general art-weirdo (we’re looking at you, Björk) worlds. Our crack team has assembled this helpful infographic to explain.
In the words of Knowles:
“I sent it [her recording of the song] to one friend, who sent it to [Grizzly Bear’s] Chris Taylor, and he sent it to some of my friends in Chairlift, and one of my friends in Chairlift sent it to one of the guys in Dirty Projectors, and one of the guys in Dirty Projectors somehow sent it to Bjööööörk. And if you write that, you have to make it sing like I just did. And a good friend of mine, [designer] Jeremy Scott, sent me a message saying that Björk sent it to him. So I pretty much did cartwheels for ten hours straight.”
