Help ease the transition from college to the real world by gifting your recent grad with a present that'll help them as they go about building the adult life they've been dreaming of. A freshly printed degree and magna cum laude status are nice, sure, but when it comes to nailing the big interview, a perfect pump or smart blazer can be just as important.
Before hitting the Billboard Music Awards red carpet in blue sequins yesterday, Taylor Swift showed us how to look every bit as cool, all while maintaining a feminine flair. During a Beverly Hills shopping session with a friend, the singer tucked a printed top with an always-adorable Peter Pan collar into a burgundy pleated miniskirt. She then pulled in the perfect accessories: her favorite Mark Cross messenger bag, tan woven oxfords, and black Ray-Ban Wayfarers for an edgier finish. Next time you hit the retail circuit, reference Taylor's girlie-cum-cool creation and don't leave home without your favorite add-ons. To get similar pieces, shop our picks below.
When taking stock of the biggest red carpet moments at the Cannes Film Festival, the standouts are pretty black and white — quite literally. The style set ditched their rainbow hues in favor of chic two-toned gowns. Just look to Emma Watson in Chanel, Jennifer Lawrence in Dior, and Carey Mulligan in Vionnet for the proof — and evidence of just how chic the black-and-white palette looks on a variety of evening gowns.
Sure, the color scheme is particularly hot this season, but it's also a classic. So whether you're looking to be at the forefront of fashion or seeking something a little more timeless for your wardrobe, a great black-and-white gown is kind of like the win-win of both style camps. It's an elegant, seasonless look that's bound to get you noticed at your best friend's formal wedding this Summer or your cousin's black-tie nuptials this Fall — or years from now. Need another reason to invest? We've pulled 12. Shop our editors' picks to channel a little Cannes glamour for your next big event.
As we head into day six at the Cannes Film Festival, celebrity glamour shows no signs of slowing. On par with festivals past, this season's stylish set kicked off the glamour Gatsby-style with the film's premiere on day one, and continued to wow with every subsequent premiere and party. Case in point: today's Blood Ties premiere, where Zoe Saldana, Marion Cotillard, Selita Ebanks, and Milla Jovovich all stepped out in equally stunning evening looks. Click through to see every jaw-dropping appearance — and stay tuned for all the red carpet action right here.
So far, 2013 has been a big fashion year for a certain Miley Cyrus. She's been photographed in Chanel, Valentino, and Balmain (pictured from left to right at a Ryan Seacrest event, the Maxim Hot 100 Party, and the Billboard Music Awards) and is well on her way to achieving that one thing every style icon has mastered: a signature look. She's recently skipped over the majority of the color spectrum, instead gravitating toward black and white accented with a third color by way of her red lips. It gets more specific, too: beyond loving the two-toned combo, Miley's showing a serious propensity for pantsuits rather than more common red carpet dresses.
The singer's image has progressively gotten sexier as she's moved past her Hannah Montana stage, and fashion-wise, her cropped 'do seemed to usher in a whole new era of envelope-pushing fashion. Whatever the case, we love that she's turned into a dresser to watch.
