The Whitney Museum's annual Art Party in NYC always attracts the crème de la crème of the fashion world — case in point: this style set from last night's festivities. Olivia Wilde and Lake Bell coordinated in their green printed dresses, though Olivia's Max Mara number was flowy and Lake opted for something more formfitting. Olivia added a chunky gold-and-black House of Lavande Vintage necklace, Iwona Ludyga drop earrings, and Stuart Weitzman black strappy sandals, while Lake carried a simple black clutch and wore black slingback booties. Jourdan Dunn took a different approach entirely, stepping out in a fashion-forward white Alexander Wang dress from the designer's Spring 2013 line and matching white platform pumps. All three ladies went with statement dresses, but which one gets your vote?
In an image released Tuesday from Balenciaga's Fall 2013 campaign — the first since Alexander Wang took over as the house's creative director — a black-clad Kristen McMenamy is seen peeking out of an all-black room, with her left hand gripping the doorknob.
Wang told WWD that the campaign, shot by Steven Klein, is meant to be a "very cinematic portrayal" of his Fall 2013 debut for the house. He added that there's "lots of emotion, in contrast to the austerity bestowed in the show."
Whether McMenamy's face will appear in other images from the campaign will have to wait until June, when the campaign begins appearing in magazines. A full look at the first shot, here in the gallery.

Our latest shoe — rather, shoe color — obsession may not exactly fall into this season's lighter, brighter palette, but it certainly does make a serious case for red's unequivocal statement-making power. It boils down to this: we love the idea of sticking to the outfit basics (we're talking white tee and denim cutoffs here). So, when one accessory can do all the work, that's kind of like styling nirvana — herein lies the appeal of a great red sandal.
Whether the shoe be flat-soled and adorned with the bare two-strap minimum or come complete with a chunky platform and sexier lace-up details, the idea is to turn heads with one fell swoop of standout red and a cool silhouette to match. And let us remind you that these sandals were made to be worn for day and night. So, if this weekend's brunch calls for a red-hot pick-me-up, then look no further than our picks — at every heel height and price point — below.
Remember all of those amazing (yet pricey) pieces you've been eyeing all season long? Well, guess what? They're now all on sale! That being said, we hand-selected the need-now finds for you to add to your current warm-weather wardrobe mix: Rag & Bone's floral blazer in a sunny yellow hue, Current/Elliott's celebrity-approved denim button-down that will surely become an everyday staple, Nicholas Kirkwood's colorful lace-up sandals that would light up any foot, the perfect little white dress by A.L.C., and more. There's so much more where that came from — head inside to see and shop 21 irresistible finds you won't believe are on sale.
The quintessential sheath dress is the easiest way to getting out the door in one polished piece. Season after season, we rely on the ladylike silhouette as a staple in our closets — though, admittedly, we're partial to this season's lineup of fresh prints, silk finishes, and slightly more body-conscious cut. In fact, it's almost impossible to think of a place that we couldn't wear them. From the workweek to the weekend to dinners out and cocktail parties (and just about everything in between), these dresses are perfectly suited for almost anything in your itinerary. We've culled a few of the front-runners — aka the 14 reasons why you need a sheath dress in your closet right now. Start clicking to shop.
Not everyone is blessed with supermodel genes, so with warmer weather springing up, we're looking for ways to lengthen our stems before slipping into our cute shorts and Summer dresses. Our secret weapon to instantly longer legs? Nude sandals — and this season, the virtual shelves are stocked with covetable styles to complete your ensembles. The key to maximum leg-lengthening appeal is making sure your ankle straps are always nude-hued; it's also amazing what a nude-hued pedicure can do (we love Essie's Sand Tropez option) for an even more seamless look. From white dresses to bright prints, nude sandals work with just about any outfit (the power of neutrals!), so needless to say, they're worth the investment. Big budget or small, we've got you covered — click on to see and shop our favorite nude sandals on the market right now!
The first weekend of Coachella has come and gone, but we are still in love with all the cool outfits we spotted at the festival! Between the pool parties and the concerts, there are many moments to make a fashion statement, and celebrities like Alexa Chung, Kate Bosworth, and Solange Knowles definitely made good use of their time in the desert. Katy Perry went playful in a printed outfit by Dolce & Gabbana, while Alexa went for an LBD to DJ the Lacoste Live party. Diane Kruger —who was joined by Joshua Jackson and designer Jason Wu — styled up a head-to-toe H&M outfit at the first ever H&M Loves Music party at the Merv Griffin Estate. We also spotted Alexander Wang at the Saguaro Desert Weekender presented by Swatch and Revolve Clothing and at the famed A/X Armani Exchange Neon Carnival.

Black and white is a timeless color combo that's also right on trend for the current season.

From on-trend striped pants to a flirty and feminine look fit for your next date, we've styled up four outfits we think you'll love — see them all now!

Spring's bucket-bag trend is a slam dunk in our style book this season, and here's why. Striking an even balance between casual and chic, this classic silhouette can look just as cool with your pretty printed dresses as it does with a pair of laid-back jeans. Depending on how you wear it — we love them worn crossbody — bucket bags inject an effortless aesthetic we're all want to channel on our more relaxed styling days. What's more, this medium-size bag is perfect for any (and all) of your upcoming music-fest outings and warm-weather adventures.
