Julien Macdonald didn't hold back on glamour for Fall 2013, showing us a bevy of sexy dresses and gowns on the runway at London Fashion Week. Highlighting sheer details and a lot of metallic finishes, the Welsh designer provided plenty of red-carpet party options for his celebrity fans, including Kristen Stewart, Heidi Klum, and Bérénice Marlohe. See the most eye-catching statement looks from Julien Macdonald's latest offerings in the slideshow now.
The Berlin International Film Festival kicked off earlier this month — yes, there is life outside of Fashion Week — and we're catching you up on all the glamour straight from the red carpet abroad. Amanda Seyfried stepped out for the premiere of her film Lovelace in an apropos blue lace Elie Saab gown; Charlize Theron glowed in a strapless Gucci gown at the Cinema For Peace gala; and Anne Hathaway exuded a darker kind of evening elegance in her Chanel Couture pick at the Les Misérables premiere. And that's only the beginning. For more stunning Berlin ensembles, courtesy of Emma Stone and Rooney Mara, keep clicking.

Not even a full-fledged New York City blizzard could deter the Fashion Week crowd from donning their prettiest, coolest, and sexiest footwear. From the Lincoln Center tents to Milk Studios, these attendees made a head-to-toe commitment to fashion, right down to their statement stilettos, booties, high-wattage sneakers, and slick loafers and brogues. The footwear of choice this season? Besides the quintessential black booties, we spotted Winter-perfect knee-highs (and thigh-highs!), crisp white pumps, flashes of metallics, and cool-girl high-tops taking over. So, from the very practical (like a pair of bold-hued Nikes) to those who braved the shows (and the snow!) with open-toes, get all the shoe-stalking highlights right here.

Shortly before Carolina Herrera unveiled her Fall 2013 collection, we stole a few moments with the designer, who revealed how music inspires her, her favorite fashion decade, and how she defines elegance. Herrera, who's known for her beautiful gowns, says that when it come to being elegant, it's not what you're wearing but rather, the way you're wearing it. For the rest of our chat with the designer, watch right here.
We're breaking from the street style and Fashion Week's front row to bring you a look at the most glamorous fashion stars of the week. The Berlin Film Festival, pre-Oscar festivities, and even a couple of well-timed LA store openings supplied us with a dressier mix from favorites like Zoe Saldana, Jennifer Lawrence, and Rooney Mara. For starters, Zoe stepped out in a fresh, strapless Alexander McQueen dress for an appearance at the Academy's Scientific and Technical Awards in LA — but like we said, that's just the beginning.
