Last night's 20th Annual Elle Women in Hollywood event celebrated the best performances and contributions from women working in the film industry, including rising stars like Shailene Woodley and established talents Marion Cotillard and Reese Witherspoon. Calvin Klein was one of the event's sponsors, so it's no surprise that many of the attendees were dressed in Francisco Costa's designs. There were a few surprises though, including Emmy Rossum's red Elie Saab cocktail dress and Naya Rivera's plunging white Pamela Rolland jumpsuit. Pale shades or pops of girlie color were the name of the game at the event, with lots of white and red and only a handful of attendees opting for black. Click through for all the most memorable looks from the night.
We were so excited to see that last night's red carpet for the 17th annual Hollywood Film Awards drew some of our favorite stars — each one in their own showstopping look. Amy Adams opted for a curve-hugging icy white dress with sleek seamwork and structured shoulders. Sandra Bullock amped up the sex appeal in a black dress with sheer lace detailing by DSquared2, which she styled with an equally sexy pair of black strappy sandals. Julia Roberts, an honoree of the evening, showed that red carpet dressing doesn't have to be so black and white, adding a little color thanks to the graphic floral hemline of her Elie Saab shift dress. She picked up on the fuchsia hues with a pair or Rupert Sanderson heels, and complemented the greens in the pattern with a pair of Irene Neuwirth earrings.
You'd think it would be difficult for an internationally known style setter like Miranda Kerr to pick just one favorite fashion moment, but you'd be wrong. Last week at an event for Stuart Weitzman's 5050 boot, Kerr told us that one of her most memorable outfits was the dress she wore when InStyle Australia awarded her with a very high honor just last year.
"In Australia, I won an award for Woman of the Year for my skin care line, Kora Organics, and I wore this dress," she said. "It was like a light blue, almost white color, and it had a low back, and I had Bulgari earrings, and it was beautiful."
The dress, created by Australian designer Carla Zampatti, was so beautiful that we actually made a video featuring it just last year.
Kerr also told us about another special outfit — what her son Flynn wants to be for Halloween.
"I was asking him today what he wanted to be, and he said he wanted to be Superman," she said. "I thought that was pretty cute; he can have his little cape. I said, 'You can be SuperFlynn!'"
The piece: Uniform Wares 203 Series Steel Wristwatch
The price: $530
Why we want it: This watch tells it like it is — it doesn't waste time trying to double as a bracelet or any other piece of jewelry. It's a silver clock face, a pair of metal hands, and a blue wristband. It's clean, minimal, and perfectly designed. This is one of those pieces that, because of its simplicity, will not only go with everything, but will also keep your outfits feeling fresh and modern. Be careful, you may soon find yourself responding with slightly too much excitement the next time you're asked what time it is. Yeah, it's that good.

If camoconjures up a fashion identity that's a little too tough-girl for you, then allow us to present five street-styled examples to the contrary. From Jenna Lyons's polished play that's begging to be worn at the office to a relaxed take that's perfect for your weekend routine, you don't have to be the utilitarian type to pull off this trend. Read on for the proof that you really can have it any way you want it.
Camo at WorkYes, if you do camothe Jenna Lyons way, then you can absolutely tame the tough print for the office. Start with slim-fit camo trousers — the slimmer and more tailored the pant, the more polished your overall look will be. To juxtapose the utilitarian print, you'll need to add office-ready classics, like a crewneck sweater and a pair of pumps — then sharpen the whole ensemble with a tailored suit jacket or coat.
Camo on WeekendsOn weekends, there are no rules, right? That much is true as far as our free time is concerned, but to keep the camotrend looking fresh, don't go too baggy or too disheveled. Take a cue from the street style, and add interest to your favorite boyfriend denim with a camo button-down or t-shirt. Note: a pair of heels will give the result a fashion-forward, not sloppy, feel that's perfect for a night out, too.
Just a Pop of CamoTesting the waters? Then add a touch of the print on a cool piece of outerwear. A jacket might just be the easiest way to incorporate camointo almost anything you have, from your most casual shorts-and-sweater combo to the finishing layer on an LBD.
. . . or a Lot of CamoReady to take the plunge? Do as Susie Bubble (above) does, and go for the trendsetting effect with one bold piece. Our only advice: if you opt for a printed dress like this one, then just avoid doubling up with a camojacket or shoes. Too much will make the look read more like a uniform than a fashion statement.
Or Camo AnytimeFor a no-fail camo formula, stick to simple silhouettes, like InStyle's Dana Avidan-Cohn's long-sleeved t-shirt. Then, up the ante with a bold-hued camo, and finish it off with your cool closet staples — note this killer camo-and-leather combo. We've supplied the inspiration and our favorite pieces — all you have to do is choose how to wear it.
What if your definition of shopping was less trolling the mall and web and more sitting front row at a fashion show, taking down notes on what you'd like to wear? It's real life for lucky ladies like Blake Lively, Kate Bosworth, and Kerry Washington, all of whom have been spotted out and about in Spring 2014 clothes already.
We're charting all the stars, models, and bloggers who are giving Spring 2014's designer pieces their first taste of the real world. Click through to see some of the fashion-privileged now.
Would you bite if someone told you that rather than examine the lines on your palm or a stack of tarot cards, they could glean a whole lot about your personality from peeking into your closet? We let out a resounding "yes" when we heard the premise coming out of off-price designer retailer TJ Maxx's recent study. Clinical psychologist Dr. Jennifer Baumgartner and celebrity stylist Nicole Chavez teamed up to identify six specific types of closets and what they say about you as a shopper, a dresser, and, if you're inferring like we're inferring, a person.
Before we get in any deeper, take the retailer's online quiz to pinpoint your particular wardrobe MO, and then read below to understand what your organizational style (good or not) says about you, plus shopping tips from Chavez.
Fashion's love affair with the art world continues in Marion Cotillard's stunning Resort 2014 campaign, shot by photographer Tim Walker, for the iconic Lady Dior bag. This season, the bag is updated with high-contrast colors that fade into one another, forming a gradient that would look perfectly at home on a canvas. So naturally, in the background of each of the ads is a canvas splattered with colors featured on the bags.
And in a year that brought us a pop star turning her face into a canvas and a designer turning his runway into an art museum, it feels right that Dior would take such an artistic turn with this campaign. Get a look at Cotillard's latest Lady Dior ads here.
