Whether it's a Sunday tradition with family or simply a fun outing with girlfriends, we love dressing up for teatime. The key to getting this look right? It's all about ladylike appeal, and Neiman Marcus has just the pieces we're searching for. Get the look with chic dresses from Valentino, Kate Spade, and Marc Jacobs — injected with fun accessories (like a bedazzled brooch) and sleek shoes for a modern touch. Finish off with a cute minibag, and you're ready for a (tea) party.
After Miley stepped out in a slew of black and white outfits earlier this Summer, we were ready to call a spade a spade: sister had a signature style! Now, with the release of her latest video, "We Can't Stop," she made it official. The singer sports a range of two-toned looks, like tops emblazoned with "dope" and "west coast," and goes monochromatic, too — she rocks a snowy white sports-bra-and-leggings combo before playing in the pool in a black one-piece. The only other color allowed in the mix? Red, by way of super pigmented lipstick.
So where did the look start? Miley wore multiple top designers, each time skipping over the majority of the color spectrum and instead opting for the simple, two-toned color combo (spotted in Chanel, Valentino, and Balmain, from left to right). It's been a year of risk-taking as well, with the platinum pixie frequently picking crop tops and pantsuits — not demure gowns.
The singer's image has progressively gotten sexier as she's moved past her Hannah Montana stage, and fashion-wise, her cropped 'do seemed to usher in a whole new era of envelope-pushing fashion. Whatever the case, we love that she's turned into a dresser to watch.
Nothing says summertime like a pair of espadrilles, and the latest arrivals from Louboutin, Soludos, and Castaner are sure to please everyone. Slip on a pair of red flats with cropped denim for an effortless off-duty look, and come nighttime, swap them out for a wedged pair and a little white dress.
Far outweighing the glamour of most other red carpets, the Cannes Film Festival is as much about the jaw-dropping couture as it is about the movies. This year's fest was no exception — from start to finish, we were treated to a lineup of A-list dressing. Given the nonstop glamour, it's not easy to play favorites, but we've narrowed it down to just a handful of the most stunning Cannes arrivals. Cara Delevingne lit up the scene in a sultry black lace Burberry gown, Freida Pinto wowed in brilliant color with a bright pink Gucci gown, and Jessica Biel hit the carpet in a frothy, feathery Marchesa confection and a megawatt serpent necklace.Not to be outdone, Marion Cotillard dazzled in an elegant white Dior dress, and Nicole Kidman played official juror in a decadent and ultrafeminine Valentino Couture gown. Of these five most memorable fashion moments, who's your Cannes red carpet queen? Cast your vote now.
It isn't necessary to wear jewelry to sparkle in jewel tones. Simply follow Burberry's lead by sporting an array of pieces in bold shades like emerald, amethyst, and ruby. You'll look chic in one hue, but don't be afraid to mix and match. These saturated colors all work together flawlessly.
Sienna Miller knows how to start (and own) a trend — boho chic, anyone? — but her latest turn toward a more feminine fit-and-flare silhouette is something she has actually loved for years. While Miller's long-sleeved, light blue Matthew Williamson box-pleat dress may be the most recent example of her penchant for the girlier style, she has also stepped out in Topshop, Valentino, and Twenty8Twelve iterations. And it's not hard to see why she loves a fit-and-flare dress — and why, if you haven't converted yet, it's a really flattering choice for most body types. By cinching the smallest part of your waist and letting the skirt flare out over the hips, it creates an illusion of a bombshell-like figure. And for those of you who aren't after a totally body-con fit, this route touches on something halfway to formfitting. All the proof you need, according to Sienna Miller, is right here.
Looks like Terry Richardson is just as comfortable in front of the camera as he is behind it. The photographer both shot and stars in Valentino's Fall 2013 accessories campaign.
In the images, which will debut in fashion magazines around the world starting today, Richardson's hands and tattooed forearms are seen holding the brand's Rockstud handbag and shoe — both in signature Valentino red. The house's co-creative director, Maria Grazia Chiuri told WWD the images are supposed to evoke "the sensual yet elegant nature of our accessories, described as objects of desire."
While this is the first time Richardson has worked with Chiuri and her partner, Pierpaolo Piccioli, it's certainly not the first time he's appeared in one of his own campaigns. Last August, Richardson lensed an ad for jeweler David Webb that features both him and model Eniko Mihalik.

The 2013 Met Gala best-dressed set could easily be likened to the fashion Olympics, and this year's Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibition turnout made it harder than ever to pick only five gold-medal contenders. Beyoncé Knowles spared no head-turning detail in a custom Givenchy Haute Couture flame-embroidered gown; Gwyneth Paltrow stood out in a covered-up hot pink Valentino number; Rooney Mara played the edgy card in a custom Givenchy Haute Couture gown, complete with floral embroidery, zippers, ruffles, and a split-front opening; Jennifer Lawrence chose ladylike Dior (and that Jennifer Behr netted veil!); and Katie Holmes stunned in a downright ethereal custom Calvin Klein creation. It's a close one, but it's time for you to declare a best-dressed winner of the night.

Thanks to their black, sheer, and lacy gowns, this style set may have just had some of the sultriest looks to hit the Met Gala staircase. Joan Smalls perfected her supermodel smolder in a body-conscious embroidered Tom Ford gown — proof that covered up doesn't have to be conservative. Alexa Chung embraced the Gala's subversive theme and channeled her sexier side with a sheer-inset Erdem look, as did Allison Williams, who delivered a more provocative look than we're used to, wearing a black Altuzarra gown. Adding to the list of attendees who ditched their usual "good girl" persona, Anne Hathaway showed off a dramatic vintage Valentino gown, made all the more striking with see-through fabric and a high-shine finish. Now it's time to weigh in — which of the starlets' sheer gowns gets your vote?
