The holiday season is officially in full swing, which means life's divided between black-tie evenings and weekends under the covers. For Lucy Hale and Mindy Kaling, this meant taking it easy, while Macklemore and Ciara took a more glam route. This week's takeaway: whether you dress up or chill out, always remember to take a timeout to enjoy the moment!
When it comes to heavy-hitting shopping, the patient surely are rewarded! Net-a-Porter.com's seasonal sale stole our attention today, and we're pretty sure you're about to lose some time to the ecommerce giant too. Spotted: Isabel Marant's Fall 2013 runway wedge booties, the lace Diane von Furstenberg dress we've been eyeing for months now, and a neon Jimmy Choo bag that would get just as much love as the simple black purse we've been toting.

It's December, and somehow between decking the halls and dashing through the snow, you are inevitably going to have a a lot — and we mean a lot — of shopping to do. But aside from all the holiday gift-giving, you still have to pick up a few things for yourself, right?
That's why we've rounded up our favorite pieces, from adorable outerwear options that will get you through the ever-dropping temperatures all the way to Christmas sweaters and New Year's Eve statement necklaces. Sure, every last item could easily be wrapped up and given to the chicest set on your list, but, really . . . What's the fun in that? Shop all our editors' December must-have fashion picks right here.
On weekends, nothing comes between us and our mission to relax, unwind, and, well, be a little lazy — except maybe our outfits. Blame it on the fashion editor in us, but we can't really get behind the sweatpants-as-real-pants thing. Still, we're no slaves to fashion; so we found a work-around. None of these outfits require much more than a few cool layers, everyday denim, and a great pair of booties or sneakers. It's the street-styled proof that you don't need to lose any sleep plotting the perfect brunch look — read on, pin it now, (and thank us later!).
It's that time of year again! As usual, we've got you covered with our collection of 2013 gift guides, including incredible ideas on what to pick up for your mom, your beauty-obsessed pal, and the gym-lover in your life.
We'll help you cross off the names on your gift list from now through the end of the year, so make sure to check back for the best picks in tech, fashion, fitness, and more. Also, see all of our holiday planning, tips, tricks, and inspiration as we gear up for the most festive season of the year!
When Jay Z announced that he and Beyoncé were embarking on a 22-day vegan challenge, he may not have been thinking about the impact the diet might have on their high-fashion wardrobes. But after a recent outing to LA's Cafe Gratitude, what Beyoncé wore to lunch, not what she ate, has become the biggest focus. That's because Bey's fur-collared Christopher Kane coat (the same one pictured above), made with real fox fur and glossed leather details, isn't exactly vegan.
But we ask you, does it have to be? Surely there are vegans who embrace an entirely plant-based lifestyle, but just because you eat like a vegan, do you have to dress like one?
Whether off duty or on, models had a very big year — and none was bigger for the likes of Joan Smalls, Kate Moss, Kate Upton, and Cara Delevingne. Read on to find out why we couldn't look away from these faces and vote in our poll by Dec. 16 to pick the year's top model!
Jennifer Lopez and Reese Witherspoon both attended the March of Dimes Celebration of Babies Luncheon in Hollywood on Friday, and both women employed different strategies when they got dressed for the event.
While Witherspoon chose a gray sheath dress that hugged her body and stopped right above the knees, Lopez went a little more glamorous. Her strapless, leaf-print Bibhu Mohapatra dress looked a good deal more formal in comparison.
We like both dresses, but we're curious to see which approach you like more. See more pictures and cast your vote here.
