Colored denim had its hottest moment in 2012, but its style ripple effects are still being felt, especially in celebrity circles. With Summer upon us, we couldn't think of a better time — or a happier way — to lighten up your legs. For inspiration, look no further than Eva Longoria's bright yellow denim, Elizabeth Banks's bold red duds, Julianne Hough's pretty pink jeans, and Jessica Alba's minty fresh pair. To find out how to rock colored denim all seven days of the week, head right inside.
The pattern on her blue-and-white dress is small enough not to be overwhelming, so she could add on a statement necklace, chunky stone bracelet, and Summer-appropriate nude wedges. A similarly colored bag makes for a perfect finish.

What a way to kick off Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week with Naomi Campell leading a parade of supermodels in her first appearance on a Versace catwalk since Gianni Versace's death in 1997, according to Style.com. In a tweet signed "DV," Donatella Versace explained, "I wanted a sexy and sophisticated woman with a strong attitude. Only a true icon like Naomi Campbell could open this show.'" And she not only sent out a parade of strong, skin-baring pieces in a moody palette of sapphire, ebony, and amethyst, but also a strong message on the viability of couture.
Peek-a-boo gowns were made for major red carpet moments (a fact not lost on front row attendees Emma Roberts and Uma Thurman), while suits and sliced-apart dresses had crystal-studded hook-and-eye details that recall this year's punk theme as well as one of the house's traditional tropes. While critics of couture can complain that it's dusty and stuck in the past, Donatella took a definitive stand for slick modernity.
Selfies: we've all done them (don't lie, we saw it on your Instagram!), but how do you master the art of taking a good self-portrait? Our reporters Matthew Rodrigues and Allison McNamara are laying down the ground rules for success. There's a lot to think about: How's my background? Does this selfie have good lighting and a purpose? Watch on and keep these helpful tips in mind next time you solo "smize" to the camera. And after you watch, snap your best selfie and share it with us using our hashtag #popselfie.
Don't let the lazy Summer days fool you, celebrity style is still fierce. The most obvious example of the star power in this week's looks starts with Kate Moss — who stepped out of the Serpentine Gallery Party in an all-black look that's all at once glamorous and edgy — but it doesn't stop there. Alice Eve and Sarah Jessica Parker brought their own noteworthy styles to London for the Serpentine festivities, while back at home, Sandra Bullock continued her red carpet comeback for The Heat. There's still more where that came from — keep clicking to see this week's top 10.

This week in fashion, it was all about mixing high and low. We swooned over every last Resort 2014 collection, and meanwhile in celebrity land, we caught onto Beyoncé latest Topshop obsession.

We also zoomed in on Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton's The Other Woman on-set style wardrobe, spotted a surprising trend on Miley Cyrus, and scoured Instagram for all the updates on Narciso Rodriguez's chic wedding. See all this — and much more — in this week's POPSUGAR Fashion recap.

This week, it was all about sunglasses, bare feet, and bike rides as our fashionable favorites kicked off Summer in a very stylish way. Lena Dunham, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Margherita Missoni all showed off their killer shades, while Bar Refaeli kept things bright with a technicolor bikini by the pool. Brad Goreski hit the park with his pups in NYC, and Nicky Hilton got herself around on a bike in London. Behati Prinsloo showed off her bare feet after a day spent walking around the city, while her fellow model Doutzen Kroes shared a bedhead selfie that begs the question: "Why don't we look that good in the morning?"
