Superspecial and often straight from the runway, the dresses paraded down the red carpet all year can seem to exist outside of the stratosphere of normal shopping. But not always. While perusing Net-a-Porter.com's huge designer sale, we spotted a few items that looked suspiciously familiar, like the above Dolce & Gabbana dress ($2,328, originally $3,325) that's basically an unembellished version of the one Lea Michele wore earlier this week. Even if the sale price tag still isn't exactly wallet-friendly, a girl can dream. See the other looks we've unearthed here — including one that belongs to a very famous member of the British royal family.
Our week was full of surprises — not least of which was how good the stars looked! Amanda Seyfried started things off with one of her sweetest styles ever, stepping out in a pastel cocktail number in Seoul. She managed to keep the look seasonal with red lips that echoed the other lace dress in our top 10: Lea Michele's Dolce & Gabbana sheath.
Other shocks came in the form of unexpected hems — Amy Adams in David Koma and Sandra Bullock in Carolina Herrera, to name two — and a clever repurposing of Keira Knightley's Chanel wedding dress. Click through to see the looks we loved on some very chic ladies.
Christmas came early at last night's KIIS FM Jingle Ball when both Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus performed in holiday-inspired costumes that were anything but family-friendly. Selena vamped it up in a shiny red leotard covered with a sexy lace overlay, black combat boots, a black choker, and — to complete the full-on goth look — black lipstick. Miley continued her year's parade of crop tops with a red sequined option with furry white cuffs and matching bottoms. And although most singers don't typically perform with their purses still slung on their shoulders, Miley couldn't help but bring her furry chain-strap Chanel bag up on stage with her. And why not? The strap perfectly matched those on her boots!
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?
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.
We love Kate Middleton's style, not just because it's classic, sophisticated, and ladylike — but, in large part, because it's actually accessible. And we mean that. We're not just talking about the Zara necklace she wore last night: today Kate stepped out in a chic gray coat that's available now. Get one step closer to nailing the Kate effect when you shop her Reiss coat right here.
One thing's for sure: if Jennifer Lopez was still dating Diddy, she would not be wearing this outfit. The sometimes-diva skipped snakeskin, shine, and anything remotely revealing in favor of some black-on-black action anchored by sensible oxfords from her line for Kohl's (though we are pretty sure that's a pop of snakeskin on her tote). We're a big fan of this demure J Lo. You, too? They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so go ahead and shop similar pieces here
Kate Middleton always looks fabulous, but when she hit the London red carpet for the Royal Film Performance of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, she was at her most glamorous.
Looking more Hollywood than Buckingham, the Duchess of Cambridge wowed in a slim Roland Mouret gown. While the dress on its own was stunning, it is, most notably, the same dress we saw Kate wearing in London last year. Rather than silver sandals, she paired it this time with sleek black stilettos.
Of course, much like her last public appearance, the most captivating accessory had plenty of sparkle — she is a royal, after all. But once again, Kate kept us in awe when we learned the necklace wasn't diamond but rather crystal, from Zara, and cost $35, no less! Read on to see the dress's details and to look back at its first appearance!
The only thing more shocking than the front-to-back view of Marion Cotillard's dress at the Marrakech International Film Festival was that it wasn't Dior. The face of the label has made a uniform of Raf Simons's designs — most notably yesterday when she doubled up on navy and orange.
Though her route was a bit more casual than we're used to seeing from her (enforced in part by flat sandals), the daring dresser was as colorful as ever in her printed Preen column gown. Tempered with a black back, the front of her dress certainly kept our eyes busy with a floral print, stripes, and high contrast hues. Not to be outdone, her watch kept to the colorful theme with a neon band. Were you impressed with Marion's bold style?
Could anything be simpler than slipping into a black-and-white dress with a classic silhouette? Emmy Rossum chose to do just that last night at a benefit screening of August: Osage County in Los Angeles, where she wore a ladylike dress from Oscar de la Renta's Resort 2014 collection. The dress, with its fitted bodice and full skirt, recalled straightforward midcentury elegance, but the print was wild enough to make things modern.
