Tom Cruise's latest leading lady, Ukrainian actress Olga Kurylenko, lights up the big screen in Oblivion. But the former Bond girl's high-fashion choices have also been drawing major attention on red carpets worldwide. At the most recent Oblivion premiere in Japan, Kurylenko stepped out in a gorgeous striped Dior ball gown, but she's treated us to a variety of glamorous looks on every stop of her promo tour. For the Hollywood premiere, she took the plunge in a sexier Burberry number; in Taiwan, she gave us high fashion in a Balmain minidress with gold Jimmy Choo sandals — for more from Oblivion's leading lady, just keep clicking.
Peter Copping brought drama to the Nina Ricci Fall 2013 presentation, positioning sisters Katia and Marielle Labèque at Steinway grand pianos in the middle of his runway to play the Philip Glass song "Two Movements for Two Pianos" as the background music to the show.
Peter Copping stuck to what he called a "resolutely graphic palette" for the Nina Ricci Fall 2013 show, using predominantly black, white, and crimson red for the feminine collection. With nods to 1950s silhouettes in sleek skirtsuits and sporty motifs like fur-trimmed layers, it was a collection made for a modern Grace Kelly. The presentation itself was also fit for a princess, as the sister duo of Katia and Marielle Labèque played at nested Steinway grand pianos placed in the middle of the gleaming red runway.

Talk about romantic gestures. In Nina Ricci's Spring 2013 campaign, Arizona Muse is captured in a whirlwind of what appear to be flower petals.
Closer inspection reveals the petals in Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin's photos are actually small disks of pink paper fluttering to the ground. Art directed by stylist Alex White and Malin Ericson, the ads call to mind the swirl of flower petals that fell from the ceiling at Peter Copping's Spring 2013 show for the brand last September.
An exclusive first look at the campaign here in the gallery.

We spotted several stylish celebs working chic ensembles this week, but there were a handful of trendsetters who were extra inspiring. Kourtney Kardashian showcased a sophisticated take on colorblocking in Miami, Anne Hathaway dazzled in a sequined Nina Ricci dress at a star-studded event in NYC, and Kristen Stewart styled a holiday-chic duo in Marin County. But that's not all; Miranda Kerr inspired us to work our white denim for a sweet vacation-ready style, while Olivia Palermo's all-black ensemble held the key to monochromatic success. Cruise through to get a closer look at this week's top styles, then draw inspiration from their spotlight-worthy fashions for work, play, or a holiday soiree.
If you are on the hunt for a holiday dress with an extraordinary wow factor, look no further than Anne Hathaway's latest red-carpet look. The brunette beauty styled a sequin Nina Ricci dress with gold Stella McCartney shoes at the Museum of the Moving Image in NYC. As if Anne's sparkling separates weren't dazzling enough, she took her flawless look to new heights via a mirrored Jill Milan box clutch, brilliant studs, and a few diamond bracelets. Re-create this glamorous look by pairing one of these eye-catching sequin dresses with strappy gold sandals and a mirrored clutch for a holiday soiree or take it to the max with this flirty sequin Rebecca Taylor mini ($277, originally $395) for New Year's Eve.
Fresh off her bondage-tinged Tom Ford ensemble, Anne Hathaway switched red-carpet styling gears at the Museum of the Moving Image last night. By this we mean she turned out a fun, easy-to-emulate look that, quite frankly, screams "New Year's Eve countdown." While her sparkly sequin-embellished Nina Ricci Spring '13 number is nothing short of eye-catching, the brunette starlet takes care to keep all the attention front and center (this isn't a case of shiny things overload, we promise). Her slick silver clutch and gold Stella McCartney sandals certainly play into her festive attire, but never come close to overwhelming the flash of sequins. If you're already thinking about what to wear to herald in 2013, may we suggest Anne's latest to you? It's got all the makings of a showstopping party dress with just the right amount of extra oomph to make it worthy of a year-ending/year-welcoming outfit choice. Even if you're not the type of styler to go the girlier sparkle-and-shine route, we think Anne proves that even the most disco-ball-esque dress can be worn with a minimalist-chic vibe. To jump-start the process of picking out your New Year's Eve outfit — this time, with an ultrafestive twist — we've culled our favorite high-shine dresses below.
What do harnesses, petals falling from the "sky," sexy bondage-inspired silhouettes, and Vogue Paris's Emmanuelle Alt have in common? All were spotted at the Nina Ricci Spring '13 show. Our style director, Noria Morales, and Fashionologie editor, Christina Pérez, give us the latest scoop fresh from the show — from their first impressions of the not-so-typical opener and favorite looks to which industry style setter made it to their front-row seat in just the nick of time, it's all here.

When a million white petals fall from the ceiling at the start of a runway show, the natural conclusion to draw is that the corresponding collection is probably going to be very romantic and probably very sweet. Not so at Peter Copping's Spring 2013 outing for Nina Ricci.
After the lovely display of snowing confetti (so transfixing was it that when it finally ended several minutes later, the audience clapped and cheered), the twinkling classical soundtrack changed to grungy techno pop and the first looks out the gate were dark, disheveled, and even a little bit street. There were fishnet tops, leather straps, and exposed zips, while the models sported slicked-back hair and kohl-smudged eyes. Blazers, pencil skirts, and dresses were cut in deconstructed layers of silk charmeuse and chiffon, and collarless jackets and prim car coats came in outré fabrics like iridescent tweed or shimmering feathers. It was all very woman undone, or as Copping's show notes put it in a quote from Baudelaire: "The airs that have charm and constitute beauty are . . . a mixture of childishness, nonchalance, and mockery."
