Emma Watson Spotted Shooting for Lancome; Peaches Geldof Accused of Shoplifting Yet Again

Emma Watson for LancomeAfter tweeting an announcment that she was the new face of Lancome, actress Emma Watson was spotted shooting an ad campaign for the beauty house on the streets of Paris late last evening. Shot by Mario Testino, Watson wore a black leather jacket paired with a strapless pink chiffon dress and slicked back hair. Explaining why the brand chose Emma Watson as its face, Lancome's president said that "thanks to her charm, romanticism and her incredible modernity, Emma Watson has become the icon of her generation."

In 2006, Peaches Geldof caused an uproar when she snagged some clothing from a photoshoot. In 2007, the celebutante tried to leave an Urban Outfitters without paying for a coat. In 2008, she was casually shopping when poof! a £500 dress mysteriously disappeared from the racks. The party girl was found in possession of the missing dress, but wasn't found guilty of shoplifting. Last week, it happened again. The celebutante has been accused of shoplifting from Three Amigos, a clothing store in Camden, and adamantly denies all charges. Maybe Geldof should quit while she's ahead and take a hiatus from brick & mortar stores and go e-commerce: on the internet, no one knows that you're a thief. []

Hey, remember the Oscars? They were like, three weeks ago and awful. One of the evening's very few high points was Anne Hathaway's dress change into a Lanvin tux. Yow! You might not be able to get your own Lanvin tuxedo, but ladies: if you do get your hands on a well-fitted suit, take a cue from Anne and pair it with a super-sleek ponytail and crazy-sparkly heels. It's time to take menswear-on-ladies beyond boyfriend jeans. [StyleBakery]

In Isaac Mizrahi's dreams, former Dior designer John Galliano will never work again. Mizrahi admits that he'd never been a fan of Galliano's work, preferring Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen's "lighter" more playful approach to couture. "So now I don’t like it, and he’s a Jew hater? I was like, buh-bye," said Mizrahi. The designer admits that he's in the minority: the fashion world's deep admiration for Galliano's work has been feuling industry-wide sympathy for the disgraced couturier. [The Cut]

Emma Roberts loves her aunt Julia Roberts, and remembers milling around her famous auntie's sets as a girl. And like the rest of us, the young actress sees a resemblance: "We Robertses have too many teeth for our mouths…they give me character!" [BettyConfidential]
