With a lineup of party frocks and sweet, polished suits, Jill Stuart's Fall 2013 collection could charm just about any fashion fan. The dresses are perfectly feminine, but it's the fabrics that draw you in — frothy finishes, a little shimmer, and lace detailing make this set worth adding to your cocktail-dress repertoire. Watch on for a complete look at Jill Stuart's Fall '13.
For Fall 2013, Jill Stuart may have pulled inspiration from British darlings, but the look is ideal for any woman who needs a one-product option. The hair was finger-styled by Odile Gilbert for Kérastase. And if you have a tube of lip balm nearby, you're already halfway to the makeup look.
The look: Finger-styled waves, dewy skin paired with bold brows, and vampy nails
The inspiration: English aristocrats like Stella Tennant
Key products: Rosebud Lip Salve
Australian actress Rose Byrne attended the Sydney premiere of I Give It a Year looking (pun coming your way) berry beautiful in this Jill Stuart leather-skirt dress ($345, originally $1,150) — that's 70 percent off! She completed her red-carpet style with black suede pointy Casadei pumps, a black Kotur clutch, a matching black cocktail ring, and round silver earrings. Invest in Rose's exact berry-colored dress to wear everywhere from the office to parties. Throw it on with tights and a blazer for work, then come the weekend, ditch the tights and blazer for strappy sandals and a cropped jacket.
Jill Stuart knows how to dress girlie-girls without being fussy about it, and her beauty look for Spring 2013 followed the same line of thinking. A simply pretty beauty look let the sheer and lacy collection stand out.
The look: Wet-effect eyelids and clean, healthy hair
The inspiration: Sophisticated and fresh, so as not to compete with the clothes.
Who would wear this: Women in touch with their femininity
Jill Stuart poured on the feminine charm by way of ultragirlie dress details for Spring 2013. We're talking floor-length silver sequin embellishments, silky bow-ties, accordion pleats, and of course, lots and lots of lace. For every dress occasion, Jill sent out a gorgeous iteration, each one impossibly prettier than the last. If you're feeling the romance, then be prepared to swoon a little more. Push play to see Jill Stuart's latest collection in full right now.
The glamour of Hollywood's Golden Age inspired Jill Stuart to create a richly detailed and elegant Spring 2013 collection. There was no shortage of options for the red carpet in this lineup: sheer dresses with flower appliqués offered a timeless elegance, while a series of silk brocades provided a luxurious sheen. One floor-length gown was covered strap-to-hem in sequins; elsewhere, a sparkly bra peeked out from behind a silk dress in cream. But for all this collection's evening-hours opulence, it had some daytime appeal, too: three very feminine meditations on a safari jacket (one jumpsuit, one trench, and one coat) gave Stuart's woman an extra layer of defense against Spring's chilly winds.
Lace, accordion pleats, brocade finishes, and silver sequins — it was all about ultragirlie dress details at Jill Stuart. With only a few silky trousers, pantsuits, and belted trench coats peppered throughout, her undeniably dress-focused approach to Spring 2013 indicated a strong affinity to the feminine silhouette above all else. Cut close to the body, and in a range that ran the gamut from pencil-shaped sheaths to slim-cut blazers, there wasn't a single look that didn't enhance the female form — in a good way, we might add. But, with such an overarching lean toward a ladylike styling sensibility, we found Jill's bolder take on the ankle-wrap ballerina-inspired platforms to be a much-needed accent to the softer shapes on top.

Avant-garde looks are impressive sights to behold during Fashion Week, but sometimes it's the more wearable ones that turn out to be the most memorable. And Jill Stuart's Fall 2012 show falls into the latter category. Odile Gilbert (for Kérastase) explained how models walked the runway with "sexy, but touchable" hair that was "natural and real." As for makeup, the palette consisted of stand-out purple shadows paired with a hint-of-color lip hue. The outcome blurred the line between slightly edgy, yet fresh and approachable.
Jill Stuart's feminine interpretation of Fall was a botanical experience blooming with florals in all shapes and sizes. The show, attended by stylish celebs like Olivia Palermo and Nikki Reed, highlighted the designer's unapologetic feminine flair, with pretty party dresses — the floral dresses with the delicate lace detailing and Peter Pan-collared little black dresses were the highlights of the show — and luxe ladylike outerwear. Adding a modern effect were leather touches throughout; pencil skirts featured leather panels and coats were trimmed with thin leather piping. The latter showed an outstanding leather-trimmed navy coat paired with trousers, floral top, and fur collar. We can already see the front-row celeb attendees checking off their wish list . . .
