What we wouldn't give to get dressed in Lea Michele's closet! When deciding what to wear to L'Oréal Paris's Women of Worth event last night, the star chose a dress from one of the most opulent collections of the season. The star stepped onto the red carpet in an embellished lace dress by Dolce & Gabbana — whose Fall collection became an instant hit due to its highly decorated wares and bejeweled headpieces. What better way to make a regal, dramatic, and above all, stylish statement on the red carpet?
It was with a large cheer that we noticed a slew of stylish women wearing their (comfortable) sneakers out and about in place of ankle booties and pumps. Fashion editor Laurel Pantin used a bright red pair of Nikes to finish off an outfit that would work just as well with a more formal shoe. A chunky turtleneck worn under a double-breasted navy coat felt East Coast collegiate, while cropped leather trousers were a surefire editor staple. Her bold accessory choices didn't stop at the cherry kicks, either. She finished things off with a yellow Reece Hudson clutch and smoky lilac shades. Shop the outfit we put together here.

Christmas came early for Dolce & Gabbana, who last night celebrated with a festive party its Claridge's 2013 Christmas tree. And it turns out the Italian label's signature rich hues and ornate fabrics make it a natural fit for the business of trimming (not to mention the fact that the designers are longtime guests of the hotel).
Pairing with the Mayfair property and following in the footsteps of Lanvin and Dior, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana designed a tree that is sure to delight guests. The duo put a Sicilian twist on the holiday with hand-crafted puppets known as "pupi," Italian glass baubles, and multicolored "luminarie" framework from Southern Italy. One thing's for certain: we feel like kids on Christmas morning — read on to see why and to see the original sketch.
When Victoria Beckham gives back, she does it in a big way — and it doesn't get much bigger than her shoe closet, apparently! The heel-loving style star and her husband, David Beckham, have donated their clothing to the British Red Cross Shop Drop for the Philippines effort, in which all proceeds go to helping those affected by the typhoon. The items were available this morning at the charitable foundation's shop in Kensington & Chelsea.
According to the organization, "the couple's collection includes dresses, tops, suits, and shoes from labels including Dolce & Gabbana, Jimmy Choo, and Roberto Cavalli." We definitely spotted those designers in the mix, so read on to see which items Victoria retired from her closet (hint: two exact pieces are pictured above) and her reactions — as well as those of fans — to parting with her prized possessions!

Scarlett Johansson's gorgeous gaze is the inspiration for Dolce & Gabbana's PassionEyes collection, out this month. With a muse like Scarlett, you can bet they pulled out all the stops for this gorgeous assemblage of products: three lengthening and curling mascaras — including the brand's first-ever indigo shade — an eye-shadow quad, lip and eyeliners, nail lacquers, a lipstick, and blush. The vibrant plums and golds within the line help to enhance your own eyes while giving you a seductive gaze, à la Scarlett. We give you an up-close look so you can decide which products you'll want to pick up.

Staying in line with Dolce & Gabbana's decadent aesthetic, the Spring 2014 collection delivered a slew of richly lacquered silks, embroidered florals, and a golden army of models for the upcoming season. Enjoy the drama that is Dolce & Gabbana by watching now.
The latest development in Dolce and Gabbana's long, drawn-out tax evasion case? The judge who tried it says the two men were fully aware they committed a crime, even though both designers have long maintained their innocence.
But that didn't stop Judge Antonella Brambilla, who presided over the case and eventually sentenced the designers and a few of their key executives to jail time, from saying otherwise.
The prosecution's case is built on a financial transaction in 2004, when the brand's founders, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, sold their companies to Gado, a Luxembourg-based holding firm. In her ruling, which was just made public this week, Brambilla wrote that the designers had to know that the applicable tax rate from the sale would be unclear. Dolce and Gabbana "evidently knew its structure and purposes," her decision says, and continues that "it is certainly not believable that the designers had given up control of the actual ownership of the brands."
So how did we get here? A timeline of Dolce and Gabbana's tax evasion case, here.
Last night, Jessica Biel arrived to the premiere of Runner Runner in an ultrasleek black and white look from Dolce & Gabbana. Enhancing the menswear vibe, she accessorized her double-breasted suit and white button-up with a black briefcase-inspired Mark Cross bag. But while her shawl collar jacket and slim pants may borrow from the boys, its expert tailoring — and her choice to rock the look with a pair of heels — ensured that Biel kept the overall feeling sexy, feminine, and powerful. This is definitely a departure for Biel's red carpet style, which usually incorporates softer, feminine dresses.
