With the right pieces, adding a sporty touch to your Summer arsenal can look extremely chic. Just follow suit in sharp pieces from designers like Rag and Bone, Proenza Schouler, and Helmut Lang, then finish off the look with minimal accompaniments and sleek accessories.
"I love Vince. These are Vince leggings," Stewart said, swinging one leg from underneath a conference table during an interview at Macy's Herald Square flagship store last week. "These are fantastic. I wear them all the time because, actually, they fit me. I don't have to even try them on in the store. I know that if I buy my size, I will get a fit."
Stewart expressed concern about the departure of Rea Laccone, who oversaw design at Vince, but seemed relieved to learn that her replacement, Chung, is a woman.
"Oh good. I hope she keeps the same sizing," she said before leaning forward into our voice recorder to underscore the point. "Doo-Ri, please keep the same sizes because I don't like fitting rooms."
But Stewart does like J.Crew ("everybody wears everything J.Crew in my office") and "these young guys called Proenza Schouler." She said, "I think their things are very well made, I think they're beautiful, I think they could be a really big, important part of the American marketplace. They are not yet, but they are striving to be that. They're not a flash in the pan."
And neither, certainly, is Stewart, who's been too busy "designing things for the home and for living" to make a push into fashion. But that doesn't mean it won't happen someday. "I don't rule out anything like that, like entering fashion, because I would like to," she said. "I think I could design."

Today marks the debut of Proenza Schouler's exclusive capsule collection with Net-a-Porter.com — the first time designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez have designed a limited-edition line under their brand specifically for one retailer. (Their much-beloved collaboration with Target's Go International program was sold both at Target and Opening Ceremony.)
The nine-piece collection the two created for Net-a-Porter.com — which includes miniskirts, a t-shirt, a sweater, and shorts, among other items — is based on some of the bestselling pieces from past Pre-Spring collections, but the styling takes cues from surfing. The offering includes a pair of leather board shorts, a tweed pullover with a drawstring hood, and a cotton jacket printed with an aqua-and-black print that, from far away, looks like a very geometric exercise in tie-dyeing.
Get a look at all the pieces here in the gallery.
The always adorable Emma Watson hit the stage to accept her Trailblazer Award during the MTV Movie Awards tonight, and naturally, she looked gorgeous. Watson sported a painterly cutout Maxime Simoëns minidress and Proenza Schouler platform sandals, making for a fresh, flirty look. She opted for a swept-back, relaxed updo and just a few thin silver rings. Birthday girl Emma — she turns 23 tomorrow — definitely looks ready to get the party started. What do you think of Emma's award-show ensemble?

Fashion Week may have just wrapped, but celebrities are already showing off their favorite pieces from the Fall 2013 shows! Last night Kirsten Dunst was the first to take a piece from Proenza Schouler's Fall '13 runway to the red carpet, choosing a classic LBD with an asymmetrical hemline and architectural peplum. Watch on for all the details! On Allison McNamara: Club Monaco top, Zara blazer.
The Proenza Schouler boys may design their line from a farm house in upstate New York, but they're no Luddites. Their Spring 2013 collection, for example, was inspired by the constant barrage of imagery in the digital age, and who could forget last season's trippy, video-game-tinged Desert Tide flick?
Now the duo has unveiled two more tech-tastic endeavors: a freshly revamped, interactive website and a hot-off-the-presses campaign video featuring the multimedia stylings of digital artist Eddie the Wheel. Directed by David Sims with a soundtrack by Grass Giraffes, the video stars models Julia Nobis and Irina Nikolaeva — and lots of far-out cyber collage. Feast your eyes on it right here.

For Fall 2013, Proenza Schouler redefined ladylike with a minimalist collection that may just convince the cool kids to wear suits and sheaths. The focus was on texture, with shades of ivory, pale mint, pale peach, and black dominating. Black and white teamed up for dynamic printed tops paired with ostrich-feather skirts. As for the coveted bags, it was all about oversize clutches tucked under models' arms.
Proenza Schouler showed its Fall 2013 collection in an unfinished, atmospherically rundown space in downtown Manhattan, but the space was a stark contrast to the polished and almost ladylike look of the clothing. Working in a palette of ivory, pale mint, and peach along with plenty of black, Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez created a parade of clothing that chic young women could wear from day to night — shift dresses in nubby bouclé with open backs, rounded shoulder coats with lapel-less V-necks, and layers of perforated fabrics that hinted at a deconstructed peplum shape. And yes, we would like to get on the waiting list now for one of the oversize clutches that went down the runway with the majority of the looks. Click through to see the full show.
