Whether off duty or on, models had a very big year — and none was bigger for the likes of Joan Smalls, Kate Moss, Kate Upton, and Cara Delevingne. Read on to find out why we couldn't look away from these faces and vote in our poll by Dec. 16 to pick the year's top model!
There aren't many pieces in the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show that aren't spectacular, but this year's Shipwrecked section easily features some of the most romantic work the company has ever created.
"There's a real narrative to it," says Sophia Neophitou, the collection's creative director, in the exclusive video below. "We wanted to create the feeling that she'd made earrings from shells and bracelets from fishbones and pearls that she'd found in the sea."
You'll be able to see the full show on CBS this Tuesday, Dec. 10, at 10 p.m. EST. And while you can't buy any of those gorgeous wings, you can shop a few pieces of the lingerie the models wore down the runway.
Jennifer Lopez and Reese Witherspoon both attended the March of Dimes Celebration of Babies Luncheon in Hollywood on Friday, and both women employed different strategies when they got dressed for the event.
While Witherspoon chose a gray sheath dress that hugged her body and stopped right above the knees, Lopez went a little more glamorous. Her strapless, leaf-print Bibhu Mohapatra dress looked a good deal more formal in comparison.
We like both dresses, but we're curious to see which approach you like more. See more pictures and cast your vote here.
Jessica Hart hit the beach in Miami to show off three sexy swimsuits. The supermodel was rumored to have been fired from Victoria's Secret after some comments she made about Taylor Swift at the brand's fashion show this year, but Victoria's Secret debunked the reports. We're eager to see Jessica in more Victoria's Secret campaigns, but for now, enjoy these great photos of her soaking up the Miami sun!

Our week was full of surprises — not least of which was how good the stars looked! Amanda Seyfried started things off with one of her sweetest styles ever, stepping out in a pastel cocktail number in Seoul. She managed to keep the look seasonal with red lips that echoed the other lace dress in our top 10: Lea Michele's Dolce & Gabbana sheath.
Other shocks came in the form of unexpected hems — Amy Adams in David Koma and Sandra Bullock in Carolina Herrera, to name two — and a clever repurposing of Keira Knightley's Chanel wedding dress. Click through to see the looks we loved on some very chic ladies.
Compared to when you're on a really tight budget, spending $30 can feel like a downright splurge! And with picks this special, it will look that way, too. We're talking sparkling smoking slippers, makeup cases with attitude, and more than one bauble to kick-start a year in style, just to name a few. Just be careful: with gifts this good — and at this price — you may wind up finding something for yourself, too!
We love Kate Middleton's style, not just because it's classic, sophisticated, and ladylike — but, in large part, because it's actually accessible. And we mean that. We're not just talking about the Zara necklace she wore last night: today Kate stepped out in a chic gray coat that's available now. Get one step closer to nailing the Kate effect when you shop her Reiss coat right here.
At this point, we've got you covered when it comes to cocktail dresses (and non-cocktail dresses) for holiday parties that require a certain dose of festive flair. But what to do when you're fielding an invite for drinks that doesn't require sparkles, spangles, or metallics? Copy the white jeans and button-up Aimee Song wore to a recent Christian Louboutin event in Miami, FL. The casual clothes were dressed up by a serious statement necklace, bracelets, and suede pumps. Copy this look next time you're meeting friends for a non-holiday-party party.
Shop clockwise from top left: The Lady and the Sailor pocket top ($110, originally $184), Mawi spike charm necklace ($725), Rag & Bone skinny jeans ($143, originally $205), Nine West Flax pumps ($60, originally $69)
One thing's for sure: if Jennifer Lopez was still dating Diddy, she would not be wearing this outfit. The sometimes-diva skipped snakeskin, shine, and anything remotely revealing in favor of some black-on-black action anchored by sensible oxfords from her line for Kohl's (though we are pretty sure that's a pop of snakeskin on her tote). We're a big fan of this demure J Lo. You, too? They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so go ahead and shop similar pieces here
Meet Fleur DeForce, POPSUGAR Girls' Guide's new fashion series host! Some of you may know Fleur from her beauty and fashion videos on her own channel. Now, we're super excited to be bringing her style inspiration to POPSUGAR Girls' Guide! On this episode, she is making a list and checking it twice — with this ultimate holiday gift guide for girls! Which gift ideas are your favorite? Do you have any gift ideas you'd like to share?
Believe it or not, it's perfectly acceptable to give someone a pair of socks for Christmas. All you have to do is make sure that the pair is perfectly suited to the personality of the recipient, and the rest is as easy as finding the wrapping paper.
From the seriously luxurious, hand-knitted options to ones that look like your toes are having a party, these sock options should have you feeling great about investing in them for the holidays.
Pantone may have selected Radiant Orchid as 2014's Color of the Year, but right now designers are dreaming about a whole different rainbow of hues. That's because when we asked tastemakers like Jennifer Fisher, Jonathan Adler, and Misha Nonoo to pick the color of the holiday season, they came up with a festive list of rich and seasonal tones. Next year may be all about purple, but we suggest you do your holiday dressing (and shopping!) from another color spectrum.

When Jay Z announced that he and Beyoncé were embarking on a 22-day vegan challenge, he may not have been thinking about the impact the diet might have on their high-fashion wardrobes. But after a recent outing to LA's Cafe Gratitude, what Beyoncé wore to lunch, not what she ate, has become the biggest focus. That's because Bey's fur-collared Christopher Kane coat (the same one pictured above), made with real fox fur and glossed leather details, isn't exactly vegan.
But we ask you, does it have to be? Surely there are vegans who embrace an entirely plant-based lifestyle, but just because you eat like a vegan, do you have to dress like one?
If you haven't bought your holiday look yet, now's the time — L'Wren Scott for Banana Republic just hit stores. And it's not just party dresses you can shop from the from the 50-piece collection! As we learned in the New York Post's Alexa, there are cozier options, too. Of the pajamas, which Scott calls her favorites in the line, she says, "That's all I can think of at Christmas: I get to sleep in!"
As for why Scott chose the brand for her first collaboration, that decision was an equally warm and cozy one: "I have memories of growing up in Utah and saving my money to shop there. I worked for a Banana Republic [campaign] with Herb Ritts, so I have a history with them." With feminine silhouettes, seasonal hues, and prices ranging from $39 to $198, this could easily become our one-stop shop for holiday dressing. Click through to hear more of her interview, sneak a glimpse, and start shopping!

It's the holiday season, and we're getting in the spirit with our favorite holiday gifts. We've been rounding up our picks for everyone in your life, and now we want to give you something from our amazing giveaways. For day four of our Favorite Holiday Gifts Giveaway, we are giving you the chance to get dressed and pampered from head to toe with $1,000 to J.Crew and $1,000 to Sephora.
Every day seems to bring a new invitation to a holiday party — it's the time of year when we gather with co-workers, family, and friends, requiring a cute outfit for everything. If you're like us, you start off on the exhausting lineup with enthusiasm and what feels like a limitless store of little black dresses and sparkly cocktail frocks. So what happens when you run out? Three celebs are sharing cute alternatives to the dress that you can copy in a week or so (or, you know, tonight).
Familiar with playing the bombshell card, Sofia Vergara gave the curve-flaunting dress a break at a recent LA event. Instead, she picked a pair of lacy black shorts and a silky blouse. Depending on the weather where you are, wear them with tights like her or go bare-legged.
Kate Middleton always looks fabulous, but when she hit the London red carpet for the Royal Film Performance of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, she was at her most glamorous.
Looking more Hollywood than Buckingham, the Duchess of Cambridge wowed in a slim Roland Mouret gown. While the dress on its own was stunning, it is, most notably, the same dress we saw Kate wearing in London last year. Rather than silver sandals, she paired it this time with sleek black stilettos.
Of course, much like her last public appearance, the most captivating accessory had plenty of sparkle — she is a royal, after all. But once again, Kate kept us in awe when we learned the necklace wasn't diamond but rather crystal, from Zara, and cost $35, no less! Read on to see the dress's details and to look back at its first appearance!
Who says you have to wear a party dress to a cocktail party? The jumpsuit is no longer just a '70s comeback kid; it's made a full-fledged return to our closets season after season — with good reason.

That's why we're reaching for this jumpsuit to wear and rewear all holiday season, starting with the look right here. Intimidated? Don't be; it's easy: elongate the leg line with a pair of heels, add sparkle with your accessories, and polish it off with a chic white blazer. We've done the work for you, so just shop it here to outfit the look for your next holiday outing.
Shop clockwise from top left: Topshop Modern Tailoring Wide Lapel Blazer ($198), Zara Long Jumpsuit With Sweetheart Neckline ($70), ASOS Party Jewel Stud Earrings ($22), BCBG Max Azria Amelie Flower Jeweled Clutch ($268), Paul & Betty High-Heeled Sandals ($267)
There's nothing quite like Christmas in New York, and that's partly because of the city's iconic Holiday windows.
