Celebrities across the globe have been embracing florals, and while one might think the feminine print is reserved for flirty frocks and skirts, these 15 celebs prove the blooming trend works with casual and edgy pieces for day and night. It's no secret Spring is associated with vibrant colors, shorter hems, and eye-catching prints, which is why Hollywood's hottest are flourishing in florals. Whether you take your cue from Lana Del Rey in a pastel sweater and floral skinny jeans, rock Spring-worthy shorts with a sweet-cum-sexy blouse like Shenae Grimes, or go bold in blooming trousers and a textured topper like Olivia Palermo, this trend can easily work with items already in your closet. Step inside and see how these fashionistas styled their floral bottoms, then shop our widgets to snag the perfect pair for you.
Gwen Stefani showcased her flawless weekend style by pairing a yellow Zara blazer ($129) with edgy black leather pants, retro Stella McCartney shades, and a black-and-white L.A.M.B. tote.

This sunny Zara blazer works with polished or edgy pieces, making it the perfect Spring staple. Plus it can be worn two ways, regular and cropped. And it won't break your bank.

Kate Hudson joined best friend Stella McCartney for a chat at today's Vogue Festival in London. The two-day event kicked off today, and other major stars in the fashion industry like Tom Ford, Rachel Zoe, and Diane von Furstenberg are expected to attend as well. This afternoon, Stella and Kate joined UK designers Matthew Williamson, Mark Fast, and Christopher Bailey.
Kate returned to the UK on Tuesday with her youngest son, Bingham Bellamy, following a stay on the West Coast. Last Friday, Stella and her dad, Paul McCartney, hosted a bash for their famous friends like Gwyneth Paltrow and Gwen Stefani at LA's Madeo. Kate had a party of her own this week — her 33rd birthday was yesterday, and we marked the milestone with a look back at Kate Hudson's hottest bikini moments.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley belted a silky dress for a chic look that we want to steal because it goes so easily from day to night. Stella McCartney's Spring sheath could be worn with strappy flats and a crossbody bag for something casual, but with the right styling it's dead-on for a slightly sexy work look. The key is belting the waist, and we suggest adding a white blazer to dress it up for the office (and maybe that Jason Wu bag for the most luxurious of work totes). To finish, Rosie contrasts the prettier lace detailing on her dress with a sportier pair of Alexander Wang heels, keeping the whole look in balance and not too overdressed. It's perfect for after-work drinks or even a dinner date. Feeling inspired? Shop our editors' picks to channel Rosie's chic play on a versatile dress.
There is nothing more classic than a black dress, otherwise known as the LBD, but styling them with neutral pumps can get a little dull, which is why we love how these eight celebs mixed their black dresses with neon shoes for a fresh combo. These trendsetters — from Nina Dobrev in fuchsia pumps to Jayma Mays in neon-yellow sandals to Lara Stone in hot-pink booties — know exactly how to amp up their raven-hued numbers with bright kicks from every color of the rainbow. Step inside to see how each fashionable starlet added her own personality to the LBD, then shop similar pieces to re-create this fresh combo for yourself.
We've always known Gwyneth Paltrow was a style trailblazer, but now she's taken that chic moniker and dressed it up much more literally. Translation: the actress knows how to wear the essential black blazer like a pro. From her more laid-back take on the tailored trend in Stella McCartney to a supersophisticated turn in a Louis Vuitton tuxedo-inspired combo, Gwyneth has mastered the art of injecting this wardrobe staple into her evening ensembles — and we're here to dissect the polished looks for our own styling how-to inspiration. Click through to zoom in on each outfit and see how you'll be wearing it out for Friday night drinks.
No matter where she is, Diane Kruger plays the part, and at Coachella 2012, the actress sported the perfect stripe and palm tree Stella McCartney dress while hanging out with her beau, Joshua Jackson. Stripes are a classic, while the blend of palm trees with the print lends a tropical air that's perfect for Spring and Summer. Inspired by Diane's dress, we set out to find other stripe and palm tree combinations that are too darling to pass up. Step inside to shop Diane's exact Stella McCartney frock, as well as other equally cool pieces for all your upcoming concerts and beyond.
Looks like Coachella wasn't the only place subject to ultracool brights and the sheerest of sheers. Amy Smart brought her styling A-game to the Friday premiere of My Valentine in head-to-toe Stella McCartney, and we're loving the flirty effect. To keep the vibrant hue of her ensemble sleek, Amy juxtaposed a slim-fit pair of Resort '12 bold cobalt trousers with a white, sheer, bow-appliquéd blouse. Then, she accessorized the blue-white combo with studded crisscross sandals, a mini blue-printed clutch, and a gunmetal cocktail ring. It's got all the appeal of Spring's girlier trends, but the addition of silver-infused accents provides an edgier nighttime feel. Are you feeling Amy's attire? Click through our key picks below to get the look.
Spearheaded by a red-carpet obsession with Stella McCartney's cutout dresses, the sheer trend is dominating celebrity style this Spring. It can be lace and boudoir-inspired, mesh and slightly sporty, or delicate and feminine via silk chiffon, but the main message is this: show some skin without really showing some skin. At the premiere for "My Valentine" this past weekend in LA, stars including Reese Witherspoon, Miranda Kerr, and Gwen Stefani sported sheerness thanks to Stella McCartney (who was also in attendance, but kept herself completely covered up), and we got inspired to pull together our favorite sheer looks so far this season.
