First, there was the Givenchy Antigona satchel, which reigned supreme in 2012, but now celebrities are all over the label's newest Spring 2013 creation, the Lucrezia. So far, we've spotted Miranda Kerr, Jessica Chastain, Amanda Seyfried, Charlize Theron, and January Jones toting the bag in its many variations. Click on to see how these starlets styled their Lucrezia staple with their wardrobe.
Birthday girl Olivia Wilde is undoubtedly one of our favorite style-setters — the actress, producer, and philanthropist isn't one to shy away from dramatic dresses on the red carpet (remember the stunning Marchesa gown she wore to the 2011 Golden Globes?) — but she also seems to have a soft spot for the classic, quintessential black dress. When it comes to dressing up, Olivia isn't afraid to take risks with cutouts, open backs, or shorter hemlines, but she looks just as comfortable keeping things sleek and sophisticated in a full-length gown or ladylike pencil dress. In honor of Olivia's 29th birthday, we're celebrating with a look at her captivating and not-so-basic black dress looks over the years; click through to see them all now!
This week was all about beginnings and endings as we bid farewell to Paris Fashion Week and heralded a new state of mind — the Spring transition, of course. We topped off our street-style gallery with even more superchic looks and updated our City of Light Instagram diary. Stateside, we celebrated Target's latest (stylist) collaboration, did a little closet cleaning, and kept things bright with our ultimate color guide. It's shaping up to be an exciting start to the warmer months ahead. Catch up on it all in this week's recap!
We are excited to announce our next One of a Kind series starring designer and Milly founder Michelle Smith!

Entering is simple; click here and describe your favorite outfit and why it showcases your one-of-a-kind style. Good luck!
It's not often that we get an It bag that rings in under $200. But with its classic, bookish silhouette, Cambridge Satchel quickly became the bag to have after gaining popularity with the street-style crowd and cool girls like Alexa Chung. Since the label launched in 2007, it has continued to deliver the same iconic style finished in a wash of rainbow hues. For Spring '13, those colors are a range of pretty pastels, or what founder Julie Deane calls a "Chelsea Flower Show makeover." The four fresh hues are named after flowers you'd find strolling the British gardens in Spring and Summer — namely Crocus, Honeysuckle, Lavender, and Sweet Pea — giving each bag not just a covetable Spring-perfect pop, but also a bit of quintessentially British heritage. And, if you're looking for a shade maybe a tad more brilliant, the company has just released two very on-trend emerald and sapphire bags for Spring. Click through to see every new color, and then click over to The Cambridge Satchel Company to shop your favorite style (and take advantage of free worldwide shipping in March!).
It's time to break down the biggest trends from the Paris Fashion Week runways. Blue hues remained a front-runner with designers like Valentino, Chloé, and Carven showing us their most tailored ladylike renditions. Plaid patterns ranged from punk to polished, while oversize coats were offered up in every variety thanks to Miu Miu, Balmain, and Dries Van Noten. Additionally, designers like Alexander McQueen and Chanel showcased some exciting head adornments and new neck gear to look forward to in the future. There's more where that came from; click on to see our top 10 trends from Paris Fashion Week right now.

Paris Fashion Week — and Fashion Month, for that matter — is done! Since we've culled all the standout shoes from past cities, we weren't about to forget Paris. France's finest sent gorgeous shoes down the runways, with brands like Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Valentino, and more raising the bar for Fall '13 footwear trends — and weren't we all waiting with bated breath to see what new It shoe Isabel Marant would be serving up this season? From burgeoning trends (lug soles, anyone?) to sleek standards like pointy-toe pumps, ankle-strap heels, and menswear-inspired brogues, click through now to see 80 of our most-loved shoes from the Paris runways.
We're shelving our worn-in white tees for Spring's fresh crop of printed t-shirts. They fit and feel like your staples — albeit with florals, new takes on tie-dye, and eye-catching graphics — these are anything but your basics. For the high-fashion tilt, there's 3.1 Phillip Lim's take on a classic slogan covered in pretty florals; for something bright but more minimalist, look to J.Crew's geometric-feeling tee. The resulting look has infinitely more personality than your solid tops and tanks, and (bonus!) it's a fresh, Spring-ready update you can start layering under your blazers, leather jackets, and cardigans right now.
