The arrival of spring—despite the rain—makes it very tempting to throw on a pair of printed pants with a white T-shirt several days a week. But how do you keep the repeat-offender outfit fresh? Take a cue from the lavender-haired Caroline Kan (above), who landed on Stockholm Streetstyle when she brought a little life to her separates with a ruby red Indian wedding necklace that she snagged on eBay. If your own auction trawling isn’t as successful, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite statement pieces below.

Mother’s Day is this Sunday. In honor of the occasion/em>
“I’ve always been drawn to Alyssa Norton’s pieces; it must be the former friendship bracelet-maker in me. And my four-year-old Nikolas would approve of the pretty colors in this one ($715, www.barneys.com)—purple is his favorite.” —Nicole Phelps, executive editor
“My list is always endless. Being in the market and seeing new pieces on a daily basis just makes my imaginary wish list longer everyday. I moved recently and I’m still organizing my house, so some Joe Cariati decanters ($385, www.joecariati.com) would be a dream. And, I still haven’t put my hands on any neon jewelry and now with the summer approaching I’m craving a Tom Binns neon necklace ($1,285, www.forwardforward.com). Truth is, I’ll end up getting none of the above. My husband always forget it’s Mother’s Day and my daughter, at 3, is too young to remind him!” —Marina Larroude, market director Continue Reading “Love You, Mom” »
What’s old is new once more. During the Spring shows, we noticed more than a few front-row fixtures decked out in cameos. “It is a true renaissance,” says Amedeo Scognamiglio, whose family has been hand-carving the baubles since 1857. “My father always told me, ‘Cameos may get ill, but they never die.’ ” For proof that these portrait pieces are alive and kicking, see Miroslava Duma in a necklace and ring set, Shala Monroque with an oversize brooch, and Giovanna Battaglia wearing earrings to match her Gio signet ring. In-demand designers have recently latched onto the vintage trend, too. Tom Binns’ latest collection spotlights Technicolor cameos, and Dolce & Gabbana showed them on its Fall runway. But in terms of showstoppers, the tiara that Princess Victoria of Sweden wore to her wedding last year (a crown that originally belonged to Napoleon’s Empress Josephine) definitely takes the cake.

The Next Dimension Of Miranda Kerr, The Perfect Cuff For Suedeheads, Closets Of The Rich And Fabulous, And More…
Are we seeing more Miranda Kerr than usual? Actually, with the Australian Angel’s new Steven Meisel-shot Vogue Italia cover (pictured), we are—it’s the first fashion mag in 3-D! [Vogue Italia]
Louis Vuitton’s “Core Values” ad campaign soldiers on with three new stars: Bono, wife Ali Hewson, and (gasp!) some non-LV apparel. Hewson and Bono wear items from their eco-friendly (and LVMH-owned) Edun line in the new shots, along with Vuitton’s own goods (and the first-ever made-in-Africa Vuitton piece—the dangling charm hanging off Hewson’s bag).

Does anyone need a Tom Binns cuff emblazoned with the complete lyrics to the Smiths’ “How Soon Is Now?” Probably not. But are we glad Racked turned it up? Absolutely. [Racked]

Paparazzi: Take a lesson from Patrick McMullan (pictured, right), godfather of party photogs: stop taking pictures of Lindsay Lohan passed out in the backseat of a car. [NYT]
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]
