It goes without saying that every Carolina Herrera runway is filled with breathtaking gowns and the most elegant kind of dressing. For Fall 2013, the designer delivers that glamour with a '40s-inspired twist. We were treated to strong, luxurious suiting, bow-tied blouses, and trumpet-skirted shifts, until the collection culminated in the drama-inducing printed and fishtailed gowns. Just click to watch it all right here.
If you missed even a moment of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week action, our Instagram feed is filled to the brim with our adventures from every show, presentation, and party. We've captured J.Crew's covet-worthy brights and statement jewelry, the dramatic chandelier setting at Jason Wu, the epic army takeover at Prabal Gurung, and the gold-laden finale at Christian Siriano.

Kate Bosworth doubled up on Topshop wares for the UK high-street retailer's official opening at The Grove in LA, supplying us (once again) with an outfit we can copy without breaking the bank. Unlike her yellow printed minidress from the evening before, this laid-back denim-top and floral-jacquard-skirt combo provided the foundation for cross-seasonal dressing. See, if you don't happen to live in warmer climes (right now), this look needs only a pair of thick opaque tights, a faux-fur vest, and a long camel coat to take on a more wintry feel. But for those of you who are geographically lucky, Kate's ensemble is ready to go as is. We're taking the scouring out of the equation, making it that much easier to follow suit — shop the exact Topshop pieces you'll need below.Although you can't see from this angle, Kate's J.W. Anderson for Topshop denim shirt ($100) is actually two-toned, providing built-in color dynamic. Meanwhile, her ice-blue Topshop floral jacquard skirt ($80) offers up cool architectural pleats, feminine texture, and the perfect amount of proportional play against the boyish silhouette up top. Lest we forget, her edgier lace-up booties aren't available on Topshop (yet), but here's a similar style ($110), complete with rugged sole.

As the Hollywood set, fashion darlings, and models stepped out to show their support for their favorite designers all New York Fashion Week long, we've kept tabs on the most stylish attendees. From Olivia Palermo's city-girl glamour at Marchesa to Zoe Saldana's bright-pink appearance at Michael Kors, the front row has offered up A-list outfit inspiration for every kind of styling personality. Of course, Fashion Week would not be complete without its epic finale, and that's exactly what we got from last night's Marc Jacobs Fall '13 show. We spotted a midriff-baring Miley Cyrus, a striped Jessica Stam, a cape-clad Nina Garcia, and more. Catch up on all the front-row NYFW fare right here.

From Zac Posen's signature brand of '40s-era elegance to the flirty, ladylike silhouettes at Monique Lhuillier, we're excited to see which pieces will get their moment in the Oscars spotlight.

When the snowstorm put its icy damper on New York Fashion Week, our first thought was: well now what do we wear? And while the photos show, snow is no match for our favorite street-style fixtures, the lesson learned here is actually quite useful as we finish out the last of the cold months. Herein find the looks worn during the height of Nemo that proved both slick in outfit appeal and in functionality. We're skipping the open-toed sandals, the impractical minidress statements, and anything else that looks great, but won't work for our wintry real-life purposes. Click through and get inspired on how to look chic — even if and when you're dressing for really bad weather.
Naomi Watts and Eva Longoria were both in a pantsuit kind of mood at a Condé Nast Traveler event in Beverly Hills, CA. But each star put her own unique spin on the menswear-inspired look. Naomi kept it tough in black leather pants, a black boyfriend blazer, and a white silky top, finishing the look with classic black pointy, low-heeled pumps. For her suited-up evening, Eva blended a boyish cut with a girlie pink hue and then completed her Boss ensemble with a contrast-collar Monika Chiang blouse, black piped Casadei pumps, and a black patent envelope clutch. Whether you identify with just one of these celeb-approved suits or both, shop our editors' picks below to get the look for yourself.
Congrats, Rita Korkounian!
