In 2012, we crowned Jessica Alba our street style queen, and the actress has continued her impressive outfit streak tenfold through 2013. How? She has nailed the art of styling denim (colored, printed, and otherwise), cool-girl knits, and standout accessories in a way that's both accessible and aspirational. Most recently, Alba stepped up Spring basics with mixed-print separates in Southern California, worked a denim-on-denim look with a trendy twist, and proved the power of a statement coat with a printed Kenzo version. Click on for the brunette beauty's best street style looks from 2013 in an ode we like to call "Jessica Alba: Eclipsing Average Style on a Daily Basis."

Does being inspired by music festival street style ever get old? This year we've culled major style inspo from Coachella, Bonnaroo, and Lollapalooza straight from the front lines — and now we are bringing you the best in boho chic from the cool and casual scene of San Francisco's Outside Lands. While Coachella's beat-the-heat style mantra produces denim cutoffs and crochet crop tops, Outside Lands is all about cozy-casual layers and Fall-friendly separates. Dressing for San Francisco's temperamental climates — early evening fog, overcast skies, and offshore breezes — requires a little work and a lot of patience, but these street stylers seemed to have nailed the festival's grunge-glam essence effortlessly. Piling on chambray shirts, plush scarves, and lace-up boots, plenty of festival-goers could be classified as bona fide OSL pros.
Gather Autumn-ready inspiration from our Outside Lands style snapshots straight from the stages of Golden Gate Park.
From tough tomboy to punk-rock princess to freshly minted glamour girl, Kristen Stewart's style has been a hot topic among advocates, adversaries, and ambivalent audiences for over a decade. While the leading lady has made a few questionable choices — who hasn't? — we applaud her ability to blend her signature no-fuss style with high-fashion haute couture. Kristen's social calendar is jam-packed with exclusive events, but having Balenciaga, Chanel, and Zuhair Murad, just to name a few, on speed dial gives Stewart free rein to select the most heart-stopping creations, ensuring her turn on the red carpet never wavers. Her covetable style earned her the title of red carpet queen of 2012, and we have a hunch she'll reign supreme in 2013, too — but before we get into all the politics, let's reminisce about some of Kristen's most memorable red carpet looks to date.
