QUT OF BOUNDS:

Take a look at the skirt Serena Williams wore at Wimbledon while trouncing France’s Tatiana Golovin—and now imagine that she wanted to wear a shorter one but was banned from doing so by match officials. “I had something really, really sexy, but they wouldn’t let me wear it,” said Williams, who instead opted for a slash-skirted white dress. “I won’t describe it. Maybe they’ll let me wear it next year.” Sure, with pants.

BRIGITTE BARDOT

Déjà View…

Rock and roll will never die when it’s evoked so fashionably by lovely, leggy British blondes like Kate Moss and Jude Law‘s girlfriend, actress Sienna Miller. Not only are their outfits a nod to the music scene of the ’60s, they also eerily recall Brigitte Bardot’s rockin’ locks and oversize shades in the ’70s.

ROLE REVERSAL

The long and short of Kirsten Dunst‘s recent hair extensions is that she needed the length for her role in 2005’s Elizabethtown with Orlando Bloom. Could Reese Witherspoon, newly brown-about-town, have dyed her mane for her

part as June Carter in the Johnny Cash biopic, Walk the Line?

Brand New Bag

I got sick of all these fashion designers heading into home design, so I wanted to turn the tables,” says Adler, 37, a Manhattan-based “fashion-obsessed potter” and housewares designer who has created a line of handbags named after his TV muses (i.e., Lovey Howell from Gilligan’s Island and Fallon from Dynasty). “They’re classy but with a youthful twist.”
