Before hitting the Billboard Music Awards red carpet in blue sequins yesterday, Taylor Swift showed us how to look every bit as cool, all while maintaining a feminine flair. During a Beverly Hills shopping session with a friend, the singer tucked a printed top with an always-adorable Peter Pan collar into a burgundy pleated miniskirt. She then pulled in the perfect accessories: her favorite Mark Cross messenger bag, tan woven oxfords, and black Ray-Ban Wayfarers for an edgier finish. Next time you hit the retail circuit, reference Taylor's girlie-cum-cool creation and don't leave home without your favorite add-ons. To get similar pieces, shop our picks below.
When taking stock of the biggest red carpet moments at the Cannes Film Festival, the standouts are pretty black and white — quite literally. The style set ditched their rainbow hues in favor of chic two-toned gowns. Just look to Emma Watson in Chanel, Jennifer Lawrence in Dior, and Carey Mulligan in Vionnet for the proof — and evidence of just how chic the black-and-white palette looks on a variety of evening gowns.
Sure, the color scheme is particularly hot this season, but it's also a classic. So whether you're looking to be at the forefront of fashion or seeking something a little more timeless for your wardrobe, a great black-and-white gown is kind of like the win-win of both style camps. It's an elegant, seasonless look that's bound to get you noticed at your best friend's formal wedding this Summer or your cousin's black-tie nuptials this Fall — or years from now. Need another reason to invest? We've pulled 12. Shop our editors' picks to channel a little Cannes glamour for your next big event.
So far, 2013 has been a big fashion year for a certain Miley Cyrus. She's been photographed in Chanel, Valentino, and Balmain (pictured from left to right at a Ryan Seacrest event, the Maxim Hot 100 Party, and the Billboard Music Awards) and is well on her way to achieving that one thing every style icon has mastered: a signature look. She's recently skipped over the majority of the color spectrum, instead gravitating toward black and white accented with a third color by way of her red lips. It gets more specific, too: beyond loving the two-toned combo, Miley's showing a serious propensity for pantsuits rather than more common red carpet dresses.
The singer's image has progressively gotten sexier as she's moved past her Hannah Montana stage, and fashion-wise, her cropped 'do seemed to usher in a whole new era of envelope-pushing fashion. Whatever the case, we love that she's turned into a dresser to watch.

And this trend is still going strong for the Fall, so buy now and wear endlessly.
The dreamy clothes at the Christian Dior Resort 2014 show didn't stop at runway's end. The collection, which was presented in Monaco over the weekend, also played host to one very stylish front row. Jessica Biel chose this stunning Fall 2013 dress — a look that perfectly encapsulated ladylike glamour with its houndstooth-print bustier and draped black skirt. Meanwhile, Marion Cotillard chose a no-frills white pre-Fall 2013 leather trench coat, only to spice things up with a pair of neon cap-toe pumps. And Liv Tyler went with an all-black — and navy — approach in a Dior bustier. Now that you've got the fashion facts, who gets your best-dressed vote in the Dior showdown?

Community member euphoriasroom styled her leather skirt perfectly, thanks to a Summer staple: the lace top. Her cute cream top complements her skirt's orange hue, while keeping her outfit's overall feeling light and seasonal. Knowing that these late Spring days are filled with fickle weather, a cream sweater around her shoulders provided extra warmth (just in case). Her beige flats and neutral-toned necklaces finished off the lace and leather look with subtle polish.
