Newbie alert! Neeeewbie alert!
There’s nothing us Graziettas love more than finding a fresh face to add to our style radar (see Isabel Lucas and Georgia Jagger, par exemple). Not that we’re bored with the old icons, you understand – our on-going enthusiasm for Diane Kruger’s wardrobe being Exhibit A – but we can’t help feeling a tingle of anticipation when a sparkly new ingénue lands in our laps, all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, uncontaminated by designer loyalties and uncorrupted by a stylist’s hands. And so it is that we welcome Eve Hewson into our fold.
‘Er, who?’, you may well ask. This, ladies and gents, is none other than rock 'n' roll offspring, Bono’s daughter in fact. BUT Ms Hewson has talents of her own and is rapidly blooming into a Hollywood starlet. At the tender age of 19, she’s bagged an acting role alongside Sean Penn – SEAN PENN! – in new film This Must Be The Place, which premiered in Cannes on Friday night. Whilst there, Eve conquered the red carpet wearing a stunning Chanel confection and hence forth Grazia Towers is a-buzz with complementary comments – ‘one to watch’ and ‘up and comer’ being among those bandied about during our morning meeting.
But the frenzy hasn't only hit our offices – oh no. In fact, Eve’s debut has caused a frenzy throughout the blogosphere. Her dreamy dress from Monsieur Lagerfeld’s S/S ’11 collection has already garnered many a-thumbs up, and we reckon the sheer overlay, embellished bodice and pale pink skirt verge on Alexa Chung territory, non?
And here’s more proof! Earlier in the day, Eve boldly struck a pose in a daring Miu Miu S/S ’11 frock covered in a star print with a neon green leather yoke. And hinting at her plucky fashion savvy, she topped it off with purple suede Miu Miu peep-toes. Bravo!
Oooh, and here's a juicy morsel to reeeally cement her star status. After some snooping, we've discovered that Eve is dating some dude from One Tree Hill. Well, well, well. Could it be a case of move over Diane Kruger and Pacey Witter because we have a new coupling in our midst? (no pressure, guys). Or do you reckon Eve is just another flash in our fashwan pan?
