Leave it to designers like Alexander McQueen, Lanvin, and Dries Van Noten to turn everyday bugs into works of art. Paying homage to bees, beetles, wasps, and flies, we have proof that bugs can actually make for chic adornments. We're buzzing over: Alexis Bittar's dragonfly cuff bracelet, Marni's colorful abstract insect brooch, Delfina Delettrez's honey bee studs, and Kenneth Jay Lane's shimmery ladybugs.

Another Blue Jasmine screening not surprisingly delivered another round of A-list glamour in LA last night. Cate Blanchett and Rose Byrne both proved their fashion-star status with their respective arrivals.
Cate looked like Hollywood royalty in a black and white Alexander McQueen gown, finished with a pair of Christian Louboutin heels and the perfect dramatic red lip. Rose opted for a more ladylike look in a white, cotton broderie dress by Christopher Kane, which she polished off with pointed-toe Casadei pumps and a pop of color on her box clutch. Of course, both actresses brought their A-game to the red carpet — now it's time to pick a winner.

If Edie Campbell is getting a big head from all the Fall 2013 campaigns she's landed (Lanvin, Marc Jacobs, and Jil Sander, to name a few), you can't tell in her ads for Alexander McQueen. Among the many things she wears in the shots, which were taken by photographer David Sims, she dons the metal, pearl-studded head cage McQueen models sported on the runway. And even though she said she felt "not human" walking around in it, she thinks it's beautiful.
McQ's resort collection feels neatly organized into separate sections, each with their own theme, inspiration, and genesis. For starters, there are the '90s-rave inspired pieces — boldly printed pieces with buckles at the thigh and upper ankle that felt descended from the straight jacket. Him-for-her crystallized in two different iterations, with the sleek tux being turned into an elegant vest, and another grouping taking direction from men's bespoke smoking jackets and cravats. Suffice it to say, strong women that prefer strong clothes, rather than anything too frothy, will be pleased.
We wouldn't blame Maggie Gyllenhaal for taking it easy this weekend. The actress has turned out a red carpet look for nearly every day of the week while promoting White House Down, and they're not your typical cocktail dresses, either. For every stop on tour, Maggie kept us guessing with a different designer confection.
For the premiere in DC, Maggie stepped out in a sleek Alexander McQueen sheath with a gold-embellished, cutout neckline and classic pumps. For an appearance in NYC, she traded sleek black for a colorful Vionnet sheath, and followed that up with a playful peplum, knit Dior dress at the film's New York premiere. For her latest outing at last night's Gotham-hosted fete, Maggie went back to black in the ultimate party dress, a feather-skirted black Dries Van Noten sheath, and coordinating Casadei black pumps. It's not easy keeping up with Maggie, but now that you've got the rundown on her revolving red carpet wardrobe, it's time to weigh in: which of Maggie's glamorous dresses is your favorite?
