The 66th annual Cannes Film Festival is under way with the help of our favorite A-listers, who aren't afraid to show off their style or beauty chops. With every sunny (and even not-so-sunny) photocall in the French Riviera, we're highlighting the chic daytime ensembles the stars wear before they hit the red carpet — just check out Jessica Biel looking cool in colorblock; Rachel Bilson in a polished ensemble; and Karolína Kurková rocking crisp white denim. Then click through to see stars doing what they do best: showing off their perfectly chic daytime outfits for the cameras.
One of the first things we spotted when Beyoncé shared snaps of her and Jay-Z's recent anniversary trip to Cuba was her smashing Tabitha Simmons striped espadrille sneakers ($395). Against the backdrop of her black blazer and leather pants, they stood out in the best way. Even if you're not jet-setting to exotic locales like Bey, you can still get her look locally. Work her exact Simmons espadrilles into your Summer wardrobe with everything from dresses to denim cutoffs. We also love the idea of sporting them with other bold patterns for a mixed-prints styling. Ready to treat your feet? Score Beyoncé's shoes, then be sure to shop other celebrity must-have items while you're at it.
Sienna Miller took to the streets of NYC sporting cool distressed boyfriend jeans — but she didn't style them in the traditional slouchy fashion we've grown accustomed to. The actress opted to go the opposite direction with feminine pieces from head to toe by choosing a white lace blouse and a pair of blue suede pumps. She then tied a printed scarf around her waist for a unique alternative to a belt and added round retro-style tortoiseshell sunglasses. So the next time you reach for your boyfriend jeans, channel Sienna. In fact, start now by shopping our picks of similar pieces below.
Of course, models look amazing on the runway, but it's their off-duty street styles that we really love to see. Each girl has her own aesthetic, and we love them all for different reasons. We can thank Kate Moss for proving that leopard goes with everything. We count on Miranda Kerr to sport sneakers (or just about anything) in the chicest way possible, and we look to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for her effortlessly styled layers. As always, Alessandra Ambrosio puts a sexier spin on casual cool, and Gisele Bündchen makes even jeans and t-shirts look high-fashion. There's more inside — like Cara Delevingne's punky Brit-girl style and Karlie Kloss's take on the classics — so keep clicking to see all our favorite models and their top street-style moments this year.
Gwyneth Paltrow launched Goop's Summer season in London, and her close pal Kate Hudson came out in support. For the occasion, Gwyneth embraced prints in a sheer-sleeved Prabal Gurung minidress, then added much-needed edge via a black leather cutout belt and matching cutout sandals. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Kate stuck to solids in a white metallic A.L.C. jumpsuit and a Smythe blazer. She kept the monochromatic theme going with a white tee and white platform pumps, then added a pop of color with a bold pink lip. No two ways about it: both actresses delivered in the style department, but who's ensemble is your favorite?
On her way to the Glamour "These Girls" event last night, Emma Robert wore a look that positively popped on the streets of NYC. We can't get enough of this pink-and-white Camilla and Marc dress ($499) — between the clean top and flirty bottom. (And we're not even going to mention how she color-coordinated with her iPhone!) If you don't have the budget to snatch Emma's exact dress, you can just as easily re-create the look at home with a shirt-and-skirt combo. Fear pink is far too cutesy for your style? Just refer to Emma on how to temper the look. Start by tucking a dressy white tank into a pink skirt — you can choose a shade, cut, and length that flatters your figure — then add black statement heels and drop earrings, like Emma's Jennifer Meyer pair, to give it a fancier feel.

Most of us will steal away this Summer — be it to a lakeside cabin, a quiet beach, or a bustling city — for at least a few days, and the key to effortless travel during the warmer months is packing light.

You'll be ready to jet, with no annoying waits in baggage claim.
Before hitting the Billboard Music Awards red carpet in blue sequins yesterday, Taylor Swift showed us how to look every bit as cool, all while maintaining a feminine flair. During a Beverly Hills shopping session with a friend, the singer tucked a printed top with an always-adorable Peter Pan collar into a burgundy pleated miniskirt. She then pulled in the perfect accessories: her favorite Mark Cross messenger bag, tan woven oxfords, and black Ray-Ban Wayfarers for an edgier finish. Next time you hit the retail circuit, reference Taylor's girlie-cum-cool creation and don't leave home without your favorite add-ons. To get similar pieces, shop our picks below.

Zara's May 2013 lookbook goes a little something like this: statement denim, fresh hues (both bright and light), and pops of fun prints. Starting with denim, we're smitten with two circle skirts that are perfectly retro. And when it comes to color palette, shades of cobalt, orange, crisp white, and baby pink should cover all the style-setter bases. Floral prints and stripes can be found on suits, skirts, and trousers, while another batch of sleek oversize clutches maintain their status as the perfect day-to-night accessory. For all this — plus a closer look at the Zara's signature cool-girl styling in action — click on for the complete lookbook now.
Salma Hayek totally fit the part of fine-art patron, wearing a chic Bottega Veneta peplum dress to an event at Christie's in NYC. Her dress caught our eye first, but the power of great accessories really helped bring Salma's look to life. How did she do it? The actress jazzed up her neckline with a jeweled bib necklace, then added a metallic-purple woven Bottega Veneta clutch and metallic-gray peep-toe pumps for further shine. With Spring weather allowing for more skin-revealing styles come evening, we think this is the perfect example of night-out polish without too much effort. Start with an equally sleek peplum dress — here's one we love by Winter Kate ($155) — and just pile on the right accessories. Easy enough, right? Shop our editors' picks below.
The excitement of Beyoncé's Mrs. Carter world tour hasn't dimmed any; in fact, with every onstage ensemble, we're reminded just why Queen Bey has earned her status as the ultimate performer. The singer has not disappointed in sequins, leotards, curve-hugging jumpsuits, baseball caps, and sheer details, courtesy of custom designs from Emilio Pucci and Kenzo. Take a closer look at her best stage-style moments thus far.

Four young Hollywood darlings took CW's 2013 upfronts as an opportunity to showcase four spotlight-worthy dresses. Nina Dobrev — who reunited on stage with ex-boyfriend Ian Somerhalder — showed off her figure in a fitted blue dress featuring a subtle cutout and tough chain detailing, finished with metallic Rupert Sanderson pumps and Cuyana earrings. AnnaSophia Robb did a little revealing herself in a striped, cutout one-shouldered dress and champagne-colored satin Casadei pumps. Mom-to-be Jaime King played with an array of primary hues with her long-sleeved dress, while Katie Cassidy stuck to a solid peachy Black Halo number and spiked ankle-strap pumps. All eye-catching picks, no doubt, but which dress rules in your book?
Jennifer Lopez gave us the inspiration for a beautifully feminine work ensemble while leaving the 2013 nuvoTV upfronts, when she tucked this Dolce & Gabbana sheer floral tie-neck blouse ($795) into a pair of wide-leg trousers. In true J.Lo fashion, the singer added major pizzazz to her covered-up look via rose-tinted aviator sunglasses, a black patent Jimmy Choo clutch, platform sandals, and a bevy of gold jewels, including Marina B earrings and H.Stern ring. Score Lopez's exact blouse to incorporate into your work wardrobe or shop other pretty floral blouses on ShopStyle. Then to take your floral top from the office to a party, just swap the trousers for leather (pants, shorts, or skirt) for a harder-edged twist.
Summer is right around the bend, which (among many things) means it's time to pack away your thick, chunky sweaters in lieu of light, airier pieces. But before you flip your closet, feast your eyes on the stars who have already started showing off their warm-weather style. There was Olivia Wilde, who was effortless in breezy orange pants, and Zoe Saldana, who looked sweet in a dusty rose Dolce & Gabbana top. On a more casual note, Julianne Hough made a serious case for the little denim dress. For even more inspiration, head inside to see all the celebrities showing off their spotlight-worthy style.
We can't get enough of Zoe Saldana's always on-point red carpet looks for the Star Trek Into Darkness promotional tour, but we also welcome her casual approach to making the daytime press rounds. En route to an interview at The Grove in LA, the actress supplied us with not one but two inspirational shorts ensembles. The first one was by Emilio Pucci: a turquoise printed silk top and crisp matching shorts, both from the Fall 2013 collection. The other — a dusty-rose lace blouse with white shorts, both by Dolce & Gabbana — was entirely dainty. Zoe completed both styles with the same pair of turquoise peep-toe pumps for that unexpected pop of color. We've pulled together some Saldana-inspired outfits to get you inspired to make shorts a style mainstay. Shop our picks below.
