There aren't many 16-year-olds who get to slip into Prabal Gurung Spring 2014, but for leading lady Hailee Steinfeld, that's a typical Tuesday night! The Romeo and Juliet star feted her new film at the LA premiere and had some support from pal Taylor Swift, who looked equally as stunning in Reem Acra. For the full story on these two, watch now!
On Allison: Rails, DKNY
When Emma Roberts paired a light blue Emilio Pucci dress with bright red pumps at the Emily & Meritt For PBteen launch event in LA last night, we instantly became smitten with her unexpected color combination and knew we had to try it out for ourselves. The fashion world is no stranger to unique color mixes, and this one is just another way to stand out from the crowd. The typical thing to do would have been to wear nude or black pumps, but the pop of red took Emma's ensemble to head-turning heights. The great thing about this color duo is that you can totally translate it to everyday, too. We recommend rocking light blue denim with red flats, a red pencil skirt and a blue blazer, a blue sweater with a red leather skirt, and so on. Ready to embrace light blue and red à la Emma Roberts?

When we sat down with Nadja Swarovski at last weekend's WIE Symposium, the event's cohost had a lot on her mind — and the topic wasn't limited to Romeo and Juliet, her first production for Swarovski Entertainment. On the topic of "What Women Want," which was the title of her talk, Swarovski enlightened us: "Self-identity. Women wanted it all . . . Now we have it all, but have to deal with it."
Time management is certainly something that will come in handy in Swarovski's latest role: producer. "It was fascinating — a very steep learning curve. We’re new to this business, but the product felt right because the players were the right players. It was just amazing to watch the pros do their job," she told us. Adding extra incentive to Swarovski's venture, she added, "The first reason I got involved was because we have all the support of the creative industry, so the next logical step was to support the film industry back. Our involvement was a matter of investing in the creativity within the film versus just a financial investment."
Another thing women want: jewelry — and lots of it! On that matter, Swarovski is happy to oblige with a new collection inspired by the latest adaptation of William Shakespeare's timeless love story. Capturing the film's Renaissance theme, we can look forward to "lots of pearls, lots of roses." The collection won't be available until Sept. 30, but fortunately we got a sneak peek!
If you've been looking to score a pair of Fall-ready leather pants, it might be time to whip out that credit card. We found the exact same Fleur du Mal pair ($274, originally $1,095) Solange wore out for her birthday earlier this Summer, and now, they're on sale! The singer (and all-around cool girl) paired the slouchy trackpant style with a bold blazer and ankle-strap pumps, but we think it'd look just as chic with a soft tee and ballet flats.

Costuming Naomi Watts in Diana marks the second time Jacques Azagury made a princess out of a woman. The first time was, of course, when he dressed the icon herself. The designer spoke with British Vogue about the process of creating costumes for the Nov. 1 film and revealed that many of the styles worn by Naomi were fabricated from remnants from Diana's own wardrobe. "The dresses have a true history, a story," he explained. "It was touching to revisit and see Naomi transforming into Diana."
And of the choice to cast Naomi in the role, Azagury gave his approval. He said, "Of course it will never be the same, but if you're going to have anyone attempt it, well, Naomi is the crème de la crème." Tod's and Chopard clearly agree, as they helped recreate Lady Di's style for the film. See all the nostalgic on-set looks in the gallery!
Pippa Middleton is always a stylish wedding guest, but we also love seeing her strolling the streets of London in more casual gear. Her latest look is her edgiest yet — and totally in line with the chic black-and-white trend. Pippa paired a black tunic with black leather pants and black patent ballet flats but then took the look to sophisticated heights thanks to a white tuxedo blazer and a blue and white structured bag. Mimic Pippa's latest ensemble for work or a nice night out. Shop similar pieces below to get started.
Above the ankle, Rochas' Spring 2014 collection couldn't be more innocent. Sweet pastels mingled with floral prints and gold embroidery to a most ladylike effect.
Below the ankle, that was a different story at times. The first model hit the runway in feathery flats that were pure whimsy, and as the lineup continued, those shoes became bigger, bolder, and eventually chartreuse. Paired with more wearable metallic styles, the footwear completed the fantasy of Marco Zanini's dreamy collection.

In 2012, we crowned Jessica Alba our street style queen, and the actress has continued her impressive outfit streak tenfold through 2013. How? She has nailed the art of styling denim (colored, printed, and otherwise), cool-girl knits, and standout accessories in a way that's both accessible and aspirational. Most recently, Alba stepped up Spring basics with mixed-print separates in Southern California, worked a denim-on-denim look with a trendy twist, and proved the power of a statement coat with a printed Kenzo version. Click on for the brunette beauty's best street style looks from 2013 in an ode we like to call "Jessica Alba: Eclipsing Average Style on a Daily Basis."
