The only thing you really need to know about this week can be summed up in two words: Met Gala. All of our favorite stars, designers, and models turned up to one of the fashion industry's most anticipated nights — themed to the Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibition — in everything from fishnets and corsets to spikes, studs, and harnesses. Be sure to get caught up on every moment from the red carpet to the afterparty in this week's fashionable recap.
On the heels of the Met Gala, celebrity glamour showed no signs of slowing. This set traded punk-inspired couture for Summer-feeling cocktail dresses, glittering premiere gowns, and one very sleek white and black look (we're looking at you, Diane Kruger). Inside you'll find a Prabal Gurung-clad Kerry Washington, Jordana Brewster glowing in Jenny Packham, and further proof of Kate Bosworth's fashion prowess. Of course, that's just the beginning — click through for a look at this week's top 10.
Baseball caps used to be relegated to sports games and bad hair days, but now they're one of the coolest, easiest ways to accessorize for Summer. It was a look we spotted around the Fashion Week tents on style insiders, not to mention on the runways at Alexander Wang and DKNY — and it has quickly become one of our favorite trends. We've picked five baseball caps that are perfect for your Summer adventures, whether you're headed to the beach or kicking it at an outdoor music festival. Watch on to see how you can protect your face from the sun in the chicest way possible.
On Allie: Club Monaco blouse and jacket. On Britt: Rag & Bone Jean tee, BCBG Max Azria jacket and necklace.
It's inevitable that, despite the best of intentions, plenty of upstanding sons and daughters show up giftless on Mother's Day. With not much time left, do better than a greeting card from the picked-over Hallmark aisle and try your luck with one of these procrastination-friendly suggestions to help you win Mom's favor. Just, please, try to get a jump on next year.
- Nordstrom lets online buyers pick up Mother's Day items in-store. That way, you can save yourself the hassle of fighting off fellow shoppers and still not worry about whether the package will arrive on schedule (though, they do have free shipping all the time). Some items to consider: These Kendra Scott oval earrings ($52) or this Alex and Ani expandable wire bangle ($38).
- It's not the most sentimental, but it gets the job done: Neiman Marcus sells virtual gift cards (ranging from $25 to $1,000) that get sent instantly via email. And if Mom doesn't use it within 60 days, an actual card will be shipped, free, to her house.
- Bloomingdale's offers up a slew of fashion-friendly Mother's Day beauty gift sets by brands such as Prada, Viktor & Rolf, and Jimmy Choo — all of which come with a bonus gift-with-purchase for mom.
- For a gift that gives back, TOMS is offering last-minute shipping of all shoes, including the classic "TOMS Hearts Moms" pattern ($54), which is only available through its site.
- It's no surprise that Amazon offers need-to-have-it-now shipping options, and for Mom, why not spring for overnight delivery? Or if you'd rather not, get one-day shipping free by picking a jewelry or watch item from the site's preselected list of qualifying products. We think Mom would like this Vince Camuto white ceramic timepiece ($225).

But with a lingering Spring chill, we're in midst of a great wardrobe transition, and we're looking to these 48 street-style examples as our guide.

Just click through for all the proof.
Thanks to Diane Kruger's latest travel ensemble, today's outfit is right here. Her winning mix of prints started with a navy-and-white Diane von Furstenberg "Paulette" studded blazer, then quickly moved into full-on striped boyfriend jeans territory. A black tank and Ray-Ban aviators kept things casual and cool, but it was her white add-ons — a fedora, Rochas bag, and clear cap-toe Christian Louboutin flats — that packed a punch. No matter where today takes you, look to Diane for an extra dose of what-to-wear inspiration. And to take this look from day to night, lose the fedora and sunglasses and add high heels, a colored lip, and gorgeous waves. Shop our editors' picks below to get the party started.
Clockwise from top left: Joseph polka-dot blazer ($608), AllSaints black tank ($58), Citizens of Humanity striped jeans ($228), Rochas white bag ($1,725), Manolo Blahnik cap-toe pumps ($775), Ray-Ban aviators ($125), Eugenia Kim fedora ($338)

Models, designers, celebrities, and more descended upon Manhattan this week for the 2013 Met Gala, and made sure to share their punk-infused snaps throughout the event. In addition to those high-glamour photos, we also got a glimpse of our fashionable favorites in their moments of work and play. Hilary Rhoda had an unfortunate spill on the set, while her fellow model Coco Rocha showed off her most-loved color of the moment. Cara Delevingne cozied up to Karl Lagerfeld in Singapore, and Stella McCartney made a special visit to Rihanna's concert in London. Also hanging across the pond was Nicky Hilton, who shared a cool candid snap in front of a classic British phone booth, while Bar Refaeli warned against the dangers of skinny dipping — alone.
90210's Shenae Grimes and fiancé Josh Beech got married today outside London, but it wasn't the shock of the couple's very quick (read: five-month) engagement that got us. As soon as we laid eyes on her black Vera Wang gown, we had to put the question on blast: are you a fan of this very nontraditional wedding look? The dark creation — a fitted halter-style silhouette meets princess-worthy honeycomb tulle skirt from the designer's Fall 2012 bridal collection — certainly provided the perfect backdrop for her red rose-filled bouquet. But floral arrangement aside, Grimes's pick was an undeniably unique and unexpected approach to wedding couture. Are you into it? Or would you rather stick to the bridal white status quo?
