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.
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!
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.

Bradley Cooper reunited with girlfriend Suki Waterhouse at the afterparty for his latest film, American Hustle, in NYC on Sunday night. The notoriously private couple rarely get caught in the same frame together at events, but it looks like they let their guard down for Bradley's big night. While Suki didn't walk the carpet at the premiere, she looked happy to sit with Bradley and snack on sweets while his costars worked the room. Amy Adams, who showed PDA on the carpet with fiancé Darren Le Gallo, met up with Carla Gugino, whom she worked with on Man of Steel, at the film's fete. Meanwhile, Jeremy Renner chatted with comedian Louis C.K., who has a role in the movie, while Christian Bale skipped the party to catch a plane. Unfortunately, Jennifer Lawrence had to skip the premiere entirely due to weather issues, but she did get a chance to see her castmates in the city when they attended a different American Hustle screening on Saturday and did a press conference on Sunday.
We were on the red carpet to talk with Bradley, Amy, and more stars from the film, so be sure to catch our interviews on POPSUGAR Live!
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.

Who wasn't in Miami for Art Basel this weekend? Francisco Costa was certainly there, with stylish partygoers including Alessandra Ambrosio joining him at The Webster for Calvin Klein's bash. The usual suspects were in attendance too — Hannah Bronfman, Harley Viera-Newton, and Leigh Lezark all made the rounds at the artistic festivities.
Those who skipped the Florida sunshine weren't deprived of red carpet time. Behati Prinsloo and Prabal Gurung got in on the American Hustle fun when they walked the red carpet at the film's New York screening. You can see what they all wore here in the gallery.
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?
