In a selection of covet-worthy gear, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley outfits street-cool like a pro. We spotted the model out and about in NYC giving Pierre Balmain denim an edgier tilt with a red leather Balenciaga jacket and a burnout tee. She plays the rocker-chic angle perfectly — finishing with a pair of suede Opening Ceremony ankle boots and a slouchy Burberry tote. Sure, it's a crop of seriously luxe finds, but labels aside, Rosie's look is effortlessly on-trend and easy to replicate. Feeling inspired?

Preppy and rock aren't normally tight, but while lunching in Beverly Hills, Jessica Alba proved that they can totally get along. The actress added edge to her preppy Madewell button-down shirt by topping it off with a leather Burberry biker vest. She chose black denim and her tried-and-true chunky leather booties to balance her rock-chic look, while dark purple sunglasses lent a much-needed pop of color. Re-create this look for your next day date, or switch things up by tucking your plaid button-down blouse into a black maxi skirt, then topping it off with a rugged vest.
For a lesson in effortless Winter dressing, take a look at Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. The model stepped out in NYC, adding interest to a pair of staple blue jeans with a textured, furry topper that screams fireside-cozy. But it's how she tempers the bold seasonal topper that makes it all work — rather than play up the look with fur-trimmed booties, Rosie adds neutral ankle boots that finish with easy go-anywhere appeal. To top it all off, she totes a gorgeous leather Burberry bag for just a little luxe. Looking for a similar style? Shop our editors' picks for the same dressed-down cool.
One of London Fashion Week's most anticipated shows, Burberry Prorsum, drew stars like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Alexa Chung to the front row — along with actress Poppy Delevigne, who snapped photos of her younger sister, Cara, as she walked the runway. Read on to find out more about Burberry's darker view of beauty for Fall 2012, along with some photographs from backstage.
Burberry's Fall 2012 show at London Fashion Week brought out a handful of famous faces, but Kate Bosworth was the one who stood out to us. That's because her ensemble is part playful — thanks to the owl sweater and big bow belt — and part chic via a tweed pencil skirt and black patent clutch. But her suede lace-up booties keep the look from going into stuffy territory. Overall, it's a combo that can work in many situations: work, a luncheon, dinner at a fancy restaurant, etc. It also inspires us to not overlook tops with cheeky animals on them; while at first they can seem silly, Kate proves that they can indeed be fashionable when paired with the right accoutrements. If you adore the actress's LFW outfit as much as we do, shop similar pieces below. Or if an owl sweater isn't your thing, this outfit will work just as well with a solid sweater.
Leather-sleeve jackets are all the rage right now, and even classic trench coats are being reinvented via leather accents. During a shopping trip in NYC, Nicky Hilton wore a leather-sleeve trench by Burberry Prorsum with black leggings, a Chanel bag, and cat-eye sunglasses. While a Burberry coat will cost you upwards of a thousand dollars, Veda has a very similar leather-sleeve trench ($550) for half the cost, which you can preorder now for Spring. Some other ways to wear your leather-sleeve trench is with wide-leg trouser jeans, red denim, plaid pants, and even over a fitted LBD for a night out. From casual to dressy, this trench will be your confidant because the leather keeps it polished, while the khaki keeps it grounded.
In today's Fab Flash, we're turning the spotlight on the always-elegant Keira Knightley at the London premiere gala of her new movie, A Dangerous Method. The British beauty chose a sophisticated Burberry gown in burgundy, complete with pretty puff sleeves, velvet bow waistband, and a long thin slit down the front. Watch here to see Keira's red-carpet get-up. On Allison: StyleMint top, Stella & Dot necklace.
We applaud the way Miranda Kerr changes up her day-to-day style, going from a rock-chic chick to this first-lady-worthy look. The model mom belted a leaf-print sheath dress and wore them with black pointed pumps and a multitextured Burberry bag at the Opera House in Sydney. This feminine look is easy to mimic with your favorite sheath dress, classic pumps, and an embellished belt. Play with different hues in the same color palette to create a unique yet balanced ensemble like Miranda's.
