Diane Kruger had our undivided attention at the European Film Awards this weekend in a glitzy Valentino Couture gown and a Coach Madison caviar framed clutch. It wasn't just the dress's sparkle that turned heads — the actress, who's never been afraid of a showstopping gown, dared to go pretty sheer, revealing not just a flash of skin but also a pair of black underwear. Sure, the gown's beading helped to conceal so that the peekaboo effect wasn't quite so in your face, but we still got a glimpse of Diane's underthings.
Truthfully, we'd be hard-pressed to find a look from Miss Kruger that didn't play fast and loose with the rules of red carpet dressing. The actress often pushes the boundaries and embraces bold, fashion-forward couture. The question is — can she pull it off? Are you a fan of Diane's latest look?
Coincidentally or not, the dresses on a red carpet often seem to display a common theme — not so for this weekend's TrevorLive event in Los Angeles. The looks we loved ran the gamut from long and slinky to short and sassy, with colors ranging all the way from chocolatey brown to buttercup yellow. Nina Dobrev perfected the princess vibe in a cornflower blue Elie Saab gown and Rupert Sanderson heels, while Naya Rivera did a slinky, sultry brown velvet Donna Karan number that hit at midcalf and wore Stuart Weitzman sandals. Sarah Michelle Gellar might've played it safest of all in a flippy black minidress, and Fergie, as always, jumped furthest outside the box in a high-collared, strong shouldered yellow number that looked pulled from the closet of an '80s power-dresser.
All four women showed up in really different looks, which should make voting for a favorite fairly easy. Tell us, which is your favorite?
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.
If shopping for the fashion-lovers on your list can feel overwhelming, don't despair. We picked out presents that are guaranteed to please and will make any budget happy.

As girls, we know — shopping for us can be tricky. So this one's for the guys in our lives. . . . Whether you're looking for your girlfriend, your wife, or someone you'd just like to treat, we've culled together picks that any girl would love to unwrap.
When it comes to handbags in Hollywood, one day you're in, and the next day you're out. Still, a few bag brands have been able to hold the attention of some pretty fickle celebs month after month, putting them in the running for bag brand of the year. With Michelle Williams as its campaign model and the new Capucine and W bags seen on the arms of celebs like Reese Witherspoon, Louis Vuitton has, it's safe to say, had something of a comeback this year. Meanwhile, Saint Laurent debuted its Sac du Jour bag — and style-setters like Cameron Diaz and Angelina Jolie quickly picked it up. But we couldn't forget Coach's big year: the brand's been basking in the glow of celebrity affection, with Lea Michele and Sarah Jessica Parker making the designer's new Borough bag a full-fledged hit. Lastly, if you're talking about bags with big celebrity followings, you can't ignore the pack of models (Alessandra Ambrosio, anyone?) and trendsetters with Givenchy on their arms, making it an ever-popular bag in the celebrity world.
We can safely say each one of these labels made a big impression this year — but it's up to you to decide which brand had 2013 in the bag. Cast your vote by Dec. 16!
As the temperature this week dropped, celebrities had two options: head south or bundle up. Lindsay Lohan and Mindy Kaling soaked up the sweet rays of the sun, while Miley Cyrus and Rihanna threw on their coats to brave the cold. No matter how you survive the big chill, don't forget to follow POPSUGAR Fashion on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter!
Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper are sharing the screen again alongside Amy Adams and Christian Bale in American Hustle.

On Allison: Massimo Dutti top, J.Crew jacket, J Brand jeans
Nicole Richie skipped the cocktail dress for a recent fashion event in New York City, instead picking a floor-length skirt and cropped black sweater. Her accessories were minimal: you could barely see her studded platforms, and she went with just a single piece of jewelry — sparkling earrings. Copy the look for your next holiday party.

You're probably layering up now, but if you were among the style set at Art Basel in Miami, the Winter dress code was a little, shall we say, less layered. Attendees showed off easy day dresses, bright colors, and cool cutoffs, the stuff of perfect vacation wardrobes — or, if you're lucky to call a warmer climate home, just great everyday gear.
Whether you're planning a getaway or dreaming of one, let Basel's best street snaps inspire your Miami style.
Wearing skirts with boots can be a tricky combination — if you're not careful, they can actually cut off your leg at a weird place and make you look stocky. Watch on to see the skirt and boot combinations we're wearing right now!

When Gwen Stefani said "I do" to Gavin Rossdale in her dip-dyed pink John Galliano gown, we took a collective gasp of adoration. But that's not the only innovation in bridal dressing from the past 200 years.
In an upcoming retrospective, vintage wedding dresses, accessories, and even suits will be on display at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. The collection — "Wedding Dresses 1775-2014" — will be open from May 3, 2014, through March 15 of the following year, giving ample time for you to get to London to see Gwen, Dita Von Teese, and the Duchess of Cornwall's gowns (along with a variety of historical designs). Read on to get a better idea of what to expect from the exhibition!
Our first lady isn't just a supercool mom and inspiring role model — she's a style maven, too. Michelle Obama is able to jump-start new health- and dance-related initiatives, attend summits and galas around the world with her husband, take her kids to school, and look amazing as she juggles it all.
Her latest lust-worthy look — which she wore to the Kennedy Center Honors Award Ceremony — involves a hand-draped Marchesa gown whose shade of emerald is not only seasonal but also the Pantone color of 2013. She complemented the soft folds of the dress with a delicate necklace and a sparkling box clutch.
With a new batch of fashionable looks supplying our latest round of classic styling inspiration, we're taking a closer look at her best outfits yet.

What's the best gift Lubov Azria, the designer behind BCBG Max Azria and Hervé Léger, has ever gotten? "My husband surprised me and my girlfriends with a holiday getaway to St. Barts. It was a weekend filled with shopping and great fun."
That's one tricky present to top, so we were more than curious to find out what's on her wish list this season. She shared her must haves with us, and while we have a good feeling she's got easy access to many of the pieces she's asking for, some of her other picks — two under $10! — surprised us.
Shop right off her list inside, and be sure to follow her top recommendation when buying for others: "Don't forget stationery when shopping," she tells us. "Sometimes it's not so much about the gift but the message that goes along with it."
Amy Adams showed just how versatile lace can be over the weekend while promoting American Hustle. Saturday night's afterparty to the New York premiere saw a bodycon black dress by Altuzarra whose scoop neckline was decorated with black lace in a subtle display of sexiness. She then opted for a full-out sheer look on Sunday in a halter gown by Elie Saab constructed out of alternating bands of black fabric and lace. A zigzag black headband and sparkling jewelry completed the look. Which take on lace did you like best?
An audience with the president was no excuse to tone down the sexy for Anna Kendrick. While attending this year's Kennedy Center Honors, the actress worked her curves in a sultry Elie Saab gown with lace illusion panels.
Adding extra appeal, the dress featured a red hot hue that perfectly set off her curled locks — which raised the question: can redheads wear red? After seeing Anna in this sizzling design, we certainly say yes. Do you agree?
