When the holiday party circuit gets into full swing, there's a good chance you won't be able to stomach looking at another cocktail dress. The ubiquitous piece is chic and easy to style, sure, but it feels a bit . . . predictable, no? Liv Tyler stepped out at a book party for Modern Manners in a Stella McCartney printed sweater paired with a black knee-length skirt. She finished it off with loafer-like pumps and a black and white bag. In case you're already feeling the early stages of dressing brain, we've shopped out the look for you.
Ask nearly anyone in the Western world what colors they think of when you say the word Christmas, and they're likely to respond red and green. But when Salma Hayek attended a party celebrating the new Christmas lights at Stella McCartney's London store, she showed up in black and lots of yellow.
Hayek, who's married to McCartney's boss (Kering CEO Francois-Henri Pinault) did her job to support the family business by making merry with the designer and even Santa himself. But did her outfit match the party's festive mood? See a few more pictures from the event, and tell us what you think.

Supplying us with soulful songs, high-octane drama, and some serious designer looks, Nashville is quickly becoming one of our favorite fashion-centric shows. Each week we are tracking down the most dapper fashions donned by our favorite small-screen stars. This week, Scarlett (played by Clare Bowen) wowed in a fiery tulle skirt for her first tour, but even that couldn't upstage the real country queen, Ms. Rayna James (Connie Britton). The seasoned vet showered us with sexy sophistication working these lace-panel Stella McCartney leggings ($1,700) with a glistening metallic tank and mirrored pumps. Housing the perfect balance of elegance and edge, Rayna's sultry pants are an unexpected yet equally chic party substitute. Shop her exact leggings now to work with a leather cami and caged sandals, or mimic her style on a budget with this pair by David Lerner ($198).
That's Sir David Beckham to you — or at least it might be if the rumors are correct. Word has it Queen Elizabeth II will knight Becks next year, and if she does, we'll have to start referring to his wife as Lady Victoria.
And while we can't think of a more fitting honor for the soccer-playing underwear model and underwear designer (who's already a member of the Order of the British Empire), he's not the only person in fashion to have received this royal honor. In fact, there's a rather large handful of designers, educators, and other people in the industry who've made the list. From Alexander McQueen's Sarah Burton to Fashion East's Lulu Kennedy, take a look at all the most honorable people in fashion here in the gallery.

Emma Watson reunited with Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling at a Lumos fund-raising event on Saturday night. The event, which was hosted by J.K., was held at the Warner Bros. Harry Potter Tour in London and also brought out Hugh Grant, Alan Rickman, and Stella McCartney and husband Alasdhair Willis. Emma obviously has a longtime relationship with J.K., as she played Hermione Granger in all eight film adaptations of the famous book series. The actress seemed excited to be back at the enchanted studio where the movies were produced — she shared a funny photo of herself on Twitter while posing in front of a model of Hermione, saying, "Still got it. #HarryPotterWorld #watford."
Emma is likely enjoying a nice break from work responsibilities now that her latest project, the fantasy film Noah, is in postproduction. After the holidays, Emma will be back on the set to begin shooting the big-screen adaptation of Emma Forrest's moving memoir, Your Voice in My Head. The actress will play the author as a young, bipolar English writer living in New York.
Kate Moss has captivated the world with her age-defying beauty and bohemian-rocker lifestyle since the early '90s, and needless to say, our infatuation for the English model is still going strong. When she's not posing in front of the camera, Kate keeps up her style-icon status in an array of furry coats, leather, flowy tops, and boots from a mix of high and low brands like Isabel Marant, Topshop, Stella McCartney, and Marc Jacobs. Get her look with our inspired picks.
When Halloween falls on a school day, kids can't wait to go home to change into their costumes. But just because they can't dress as their favorite cartoon character for school doesn't mean they can't dress for the holiday. Stella McCartney has kids in mind with her new collection of fashionable Halloween-themed clothes that keep kids in the spooky spirit all day long.
The Stellaween collection features an assortment of shirts, dresses, and accessories that highlight the most notable parts of the holiday — think beautiful sketched Halloween icons, like Frankenstein's monster, vampires, and bats ($55-$80). The collection also includes a few standout items, like the monster mask hoodie for boys ($125) and bejeweled black dress for girls ($105). As for accessories, we love the Boo Umbrella ($60), a transparent umbrella covered in bold, black Halloween graphics.
