White seems to be on everyone's mind. Last night, Nicole Richie, Jennifer Lopez, and Taylor Swift all reached for the same hue on dresses for their respective red-carpet cameos. Nicole debuted a shorter hairstyle in a white fit-and-flare dress for the Elle Women in TV event, Jennifer showed off her svelte figure in a curve-hugging gown, and Taylor took the plunge with a sexy neckline.

The Sundance Film Festival shows no signs of slowing on the Winter style front, as celebrities continue to flock to Park City, UT, to showcase their latest projects. With the freezing-cold temperatures in mind, celebs have skipped their usual dress routines for something a little more covered up — but just as cool. Costars Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen induced major coat envy working different, but equally chic toppers, over their black-and-white pairings, while trendsetters like Jessica Alba, Kate Bosworth, and Naomi Watts showcased note-worthy looks of their own. As for the rest, it was a perfect mix of cable-knit staples, vintage-inspired denim, and cool-girl boots — in short, Winter pieces that prove that bundling up doesn't have to mean covering up great style. Click on to see even more of Sundance's most stylish celeb appearances — and come back often for updates!

Last night, television's first ladies stepped out for the Elle Women in TV event in LA. In as much, we were faced with yet another round of stylish looks to pore through — because Paris Couture Week and Sundance certainly weren't enough. Now, it wouldn't be fair for us to name a winner when there are five notably best-dressed contenders in the running. That's why we're giving you the voice and the voting power. Here's what you need to know now. Molly Sims partnered a floral-accented black gown with a tougher cropped leather jacket, Homeland's Morena Baccarin chose a sexy LBD and metallic pointy-toe pumps, Ellie Kemper shone in a strapless blue tea-party dress and metallic Rupert Sanderson peep-toe sandals, Nicole Richie rocked a light gray zipper-front dress with edgier House of Harlow accessories (only to later slip into this number), and Cat Deeley wore a long sheer-sleeved black gown complete with silver beading on the bodice. Were you a fan of Molly's feminine-meets-biker chick ensemble, or were you more swayed by Ellie's sparkly elegance? Is it Nicole who won you over with her signature eclectic styling, Morena's sexy black cocktail dress that earned your best-dressed respect, or Cat's evening glamour that should take home top honors? Weigh in below.
Without a doubt, Paris Couture Fashion Week supplied a steady stream of enviable fashionista sightings, all worth a second glance. Among the mix: Diane Kruger, Hailee Steinfeld, Jessica Alba, and Carine Roitfeld turned out some of the sleekest front-row ensembles, despite wintry conditions — care of Chanel, Valentino, Christian Dior, Elie Saab, and more. If the chic arrivals didn't provide all the styling fodder you need for your next cocktail party, then look to last night's glamorous Sidaction Gala for another round of inspiration. The fete marked the unofficial end of Couture Week but clearly did not mark the end of the A-list style parade. Leelee Sobieski stole our hearts in a bold floral-printed Christian Dior Spring '13 number, while Miroslava Duma continued her cool-girl reign in a masculine Giorgio Armani getup. Click through for all of the Sidaction Gala outfits, then catch up on all the best front-row moments from Paris Couture Fashion Week.

It's no secret that this week was cold — and we really do mean cold. While we may have been bundling up to stave off the subzero temps, our week was filled with sunny Summer '13 previews. The upside here? Living vicariously through Gap's neon brights and dreaming of a tropical escape courtesy of American Eagle and Victoria's Secret. We also caught a glimpse of the new Nanette Lepore L'Amour collection for JCPenney, found ourselves being serenaded by Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald at a special Rent the Runway dinner, and were treated to the cutest batch of mini blueberry pancakes. Catch up on the best moments from the week, as seen through the rosy lens of Instagram.

With her new movie Parker out today, Jennifer Lopez has been busy promoting the film — and showing off one enviable look after the next. For us, that means a handful of seriously cool ensembles, all rife with fashion fodder to put to good use right now. Continuing her stylish streak, Lopez's latest look at the Las Vegas premiere featured a formfitting white KaufmanFranco gown showcasing sexy sheer details. Earlier in the week, the actress stunned in an all-white Lanvin ensemble, a fur-collar coat with purple satin Giuseppe Zanotti sandals, an eye-catching Michael Kors Buffalo plaid coat with high-top Giuseppe Zanotti sneakers, an all-leather look with a pop of white, and a skilled leopard-on-leopard matchup. Yes, most of these outfits are a little on the fancier side for our everyday lives, but that doesn't mean we can't tone them down to fit our lifestyles. Step inside to get a closer look at and to draw inspiration from all of Jennifer's movie-tour looks thus far.
