>> Erin Wasson plays "a goddess, like Nefertiti" in her Spring/Holiday Low Luv collection lookbook, according to Paola Kudacki, who photographed her for the occasion. Wasson's latest offering runs a gamut of inspiration — Native American in the case of a thunderbird pendant and necklace, while Evil Eye stacked rings and bangles represent Middle Eastern culture. Hammered rings, chandelier earrings, and crosses studded with rough crystals and black agates are represented, too. A couple more photos of the collection at the links. [Refinery29, Style File]

Amy Smart and Ali Larter both looked sharp in black at an event at ARCADE Boutique in LA last night. But we're most impressed with Amy's risk-taking ways — she totally pulled off a pair of printed pants. She kept the rest smart: textured black pumps, a sheer black top, and a black blazer. Touches of gold rounded out the slight exotic vibe.

>> The rumors that Erin Wasson's RVCA line is no longer have finally been addressed by both parties. According to RVCA founder and creative director Pat Tenore: “The current rumors are completely incorrect and misleading statements. RVCA and Erin have not parted ways indefinitely. Erin is part of the RVCA family, and we hope to work with her on new collaborations in the near future.”
Though Wasson's contract with the brand technically expires at the end of the year, there will be no Spring 2011 Erin Wasson x RVCA collection. Added RVCA marketing director Brian Garofalow: “[The] agreement was for a time term, expiring 12/31/10. The term expires in between the development and go-to-market processes for [Spring 2011], so both parties opted not to develop the season as part of our current agreement.”
>> Erin Wasson Wants to Style Britney Spears —Erin Wasson aims to create a whole "lifestyle niche" — "I'm focusing on my Low Luv jewelry line right now and doing more accessories" — but before full-out designing, she tried her hand at styling. Currently, she says the person she would most like to style is Britney Spears: "I'd love to pull out her hair extensions and fake lashes and get her in her own skin for once—something raw and beautiful. Call me up, Britney." [Teen Vogue]
>> It looks like Erin Wasson doesn't need to work with Alexander Wang anymore: She's got her own line to worry about. She's signed a three-year deal with skate and surf brand RVCA to produce Erin Wasson for RVCA, which is getting good reviews already — Opening Ceremony has already snapped up the Spring 2009 collection.
We're talking about the model who has a half-pipe in her backyard, so it's no surprise that she chose to do low-cut cotton tanks ($55), miniskirts, frayed denim cut-offs ($230), a silk button-down emblazoned with tiny thunderbolts, and a blazer with a zipper running up the back, all aimed at girls who skate. In fact, she straight up said: "I’m going to get my rocks off seeing girls in California skating around wearing my clothes more than I think I will seeing it in the fashion world."
As for the Low Luv-Bliss Lau jewelry controversy, Erin simply told WWD: “I have the utmost respect for Bliss Lau. I admire and appreciate what she has done for the jewelry industry.” Guess that's as good of an answer as we're going to get.

>> After two seasons of working together, Alexander Wang and Erin Wasson are parting ways . . . mostly. Alex has hired Alastair McKimm to style his Spring 2009 collection in place of Wasson, but Erin will still be creating jewelry for the show from her Low Luv line.
As for the clothes, Alexander Wang promises "a marked departure" from past collections: lots of color and dresses, an athletic-meets-“Miami Vice” vibe, lace patterns inspired by sweat stains, and runway hats by milliner Albertus Swanepoel that look like a mix between swim caps and “corseted do-rags.”
But wait, there's more! Spring 2009 also means a diffusion line, T by Alexander Wang, and the designer's first shoe collection (both above). T focuses on what else but tees: Tanks to T-shirt dresses ($28-$40 wholesale) in colors ranging from whites and gray to lavender, chartreuse and cerulean, all in Alex's signature slouchy style.
As for the shoes, there are five styles to begin with, $125 to $250 wholesale, capturing the street feel Alex likes — and get this: He used actual body-piercing rings as hardware. What a whirlwind — let's hope Alex can keep up!
