Selena Gomez, one of the most anticipated stars expected on the Billboard Music Awards red carpet, did us all a favor by showing up early and ending the style curiosity over what she'd wear. The star stayed true to her love of Atelier Versace by picking a white dress from the house accented with zippers and neon tubing at the neck, shoulders, and back. A sexy sheer slash straight down the middle provided a bit of sizzle, too. Do you like the bold embellishments and color palette?
On Saturday evening, Christian Dior presented its Resort 2014 collection in Monaco. The principality has held special meaning for the house since 1956, when actress Grace Kelly wore a Dior gown to celebrate her engagement to Prince Rainier of Monaco.
The return to Monaco was both an homage to the house's heritage and also a signal of a new era in how (and where) the label stages its Resort collection, with plans to always take the collection abroad going forward. But this wasn't the only poignant moment to come with Saturday's showing. For the first time, Raf Simons incorporated lace into his pieces, working the fabric into everything from sheer blouses and fitted crop tops to modified coatdresses and relaxed sheaths. "I thought it's kind of old and too romantic and too tragic. And suddenly I thought, it's a challenge to make it modern and edgy and kind of futuristic," he said.
A look at the complete collection, plus our review, here in the gallery.
While the Cannes festivities upped the glamour quotient on this week's celebrity set, there's plenty more in the way of red carpet styling fodder from a crew we didn't see in the French Riviera. Olivia Wilde kicked off the week with the most elegant kind of Summer dressing in Morocco, while Zoe Saldana continued her very chic Star Trek tour stateside, and Coco Rocha showed off some high-wattage eventwear at the American Ballet Spring Gala. For a glimpse of those and more of this week's standouts, just start clicking.
Zara's May 2013 lookbook goes a little something like this: statement denim, fresh hues (both bright and light), and pops of fun prints. Starting with denim, we're smitten with two circle skirts that are perfectly retro. And when it comes to color palette, shades of cobalt, orange, crisp white, and baby pink should cover all the style-setter bases. Floral prints and stripes can be found on suits, skirts, and trousers, while another batch of sleek oversize clutches maintain their status as the perfect day-to-night accessory. For all this — plus a closer look at the Zara's signature cool-girl styling in action — click on for the complete lookbook now.

This week, the stylish set jetted off to Cannes for its annual film festival. Everybody from Nicole Kidman to Emma Watson turned up with their style A-game (read: decadent gowns, sleek separates, and stunning Summer style inspiration) — and we haven't missed a single photocall or red carpet yet. Meanwhile, we went wild for our favorite designers' custom maternity-dress sketches for Kate Middleton, rounded up our must-have gifts for this year's grads, and wrapped Bridal Fashion Week with a blowout trend breakdown. See all this — plus a special (shirtless!) tribute to David Beckham — in this week's fashion recap!
This week in the world of social media, it was all about spending time with fashionable friends and sharing sweet snaps along the way. Poppy Delevingne and Henry Holland played a game of telephone (with sparkly heels, no less), and Sienna Miller snuggled with her baby girl, Marlowe, during a daytime birthday party. Coco Rocha set sail across the Sydney Harbour as fellow model Bar Refaeli shaded her face from the sun during a beach day. Prabal Gurung posed with his high-profile celebrity pals at his Vogue x MAC Cosmetics event (just imagine being able to call Zoe Saldana and Diane Kruger your friends!), while BFFs Karlie Kloss and Jourdan Dunn hit the kitchen for a cooking segment. Cara Delevingne shared a snap of the "weirdest breakfast ever" — and can you guess which model mom got back to nature with a horseback ride to the beach?
Salma Hayek totally fit the part of fine-art patron, wearing a chic Bottega Veneta peplum dress to an event at Christie's in NYC. Her dress caught our eye first, but the power of great accessories really helped bring Salma's look to life. How did she do it? The actress jazzed up her neckline with a jeweled bib necklace, then added a metallic-purple woven Bottega Veneta clutch and metallic-gray peep-toe pumps for further shine. With Spring weather allowing for more skin-revealing styles come evening, we think this is the perfect example of night-out polish without too much effort. Start with an equally sleek peplum dress — here's one we love by Winter Kate ($155) — and just pile on the right accessories. Easy enough, right? Shop our editors' picks below.
The bridal trends for Spring 2014 leave room to try something a bit different. While gorgeous white gowns and traditional strapless silhouettes certainly made their customary appearance, it wasn't all run of the mill. Vera Wang surprised with black-and-white looks, finished with dramatic black opera-length gloves. Oscar de la Renta dipped into the color wheel for a true "something blue," Reem Acra turned out cocktail minis topped with veiled umbrellas, and Carolina Herrera debuted a sexier kind of wedding-day ensemble (think deep V-front necklines). For inspiration aplenty — and a closer look at what exactly the Spring '14 bridal forecast means for your own wedding-dress search — click on.
