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.
Bradley Cooper gave big kisses at the afterparty for an American Hustle screening in NYC on Friday, planting one on his director, David O. Russell. Bradley looked dapper for the event, making a solo appearance after bringing his mom to the film's LA screening earlier this month. Although costar Jennifer Lawrence wasn't in attendance, Bradley was joined by fellow castmates Amy Adams and Christian Bale, who made funny faces alongside his wife, Sibi Blazic.
We recently sat down with Christian to talk about the film, and he told us that he originally had doubts about the casting of Jennifer, who plays his wife in the movie. "I was very concerned about her when she was cast because the character had never been written so young," he said, adding, "And I'm old enough to be Jennifer's dad." The '70s-set crime drama comes out on Dec. 13, but you can get a sneak peek with pictures from the film.
See more photos of Bradley and his castmates below.
While we were off eating turkey, Naomi Campbell had quite the chic few days down under. While promoting Australia's The Face, the model made the rounds in everything from crisp casualwear to an ultraelegant burgundy gown.
Not to be outdone, Kate Moss made a strong showing at London's Bookmarc in a sparkling mini and striped furry topper to promote her Playboy cover! And while on the topic of models, there was celebrating to be done for Joan Smalls's January Elle cover. You can see what they all wore here in the gallery.
The stars came out for the March of Dimes Celebration of Babies Hollywood luncheon in LA on Friday, with celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Reese Witherspoon, and Josh Duhamel honoring the group's cause. March of Dimes is a nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health, and Friday's event recognized famous faces in entertainment whom March of Dimes considers to be role models for parents and children. Reese Witherspoon served as one of the host committee members, with honorees J Lo, President and CEO of A&E Networks Nancy Dubuc, Dr. Balaji Govindaswami from Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, and President of Universal Pictures Jimmy Horowitz. J Lo said of her award, "I am thrilled and honored to be receiving the March of Dimes Grace Kelly Award and to continue her legacy of compassion for mothers and children." Nick Cannon was the master of ceremonies, and other stars in attendance included Hollywood dads Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Chris Pratt, plus moms Molly Sims and Tia Mowry.
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.
Jennifer Garner and Reese Witherspoon made a hard case for subtle texture at the 23rd annual Beat the Odds Awards last night. Both in knee-length cocktail dresses and black pumps, Jennifer imbued her look with print thanks to a white lace bodice, while Reese's Michael Kors number revealed its cobalt and black print under the lights of the photographers' flashes. Whose take on print and texture did you think was stronger?
Every week, we bring you the best shoppable fashion and lifestyle stories from the editors at InStyle.com, including this celebrity-inspired clutch roundup.
No holiday outfit is complete without the perfect clutch. As an accessory that functions as a hold-all for your essentials, a clutch plays a pivotal role on dressy nights out. What more, it's a noncommittal way to try out trends without actually wearing them. That's why we took inspiration from clutches gripped at the hip of celebrities on the red carpet and rounded up the top seven types in varying shapes, sizes, and materials. Accent a minimalist shift, like Charlize Theron's, with a graphic black-and-white pattern, or copy Michelle Dockery and break up monochromaticism with a glamorous wave of jewels. From boxed minaudieres to edgy Winter white detailing, shop each trend to find your next holiday clutch.
