The Resort collections opened up a new world of doors for wide-legged pants. They've taken a backseat to the popular skinny leg for the past couple seasons, but the bell-bottomed '70s are back with a vengeance. As exemplified by Angela Missoni's Resort collection (left), mixing crisp, flared trousers with a funky top will lend you instant party chic. Groovy, baby.

It's the battle of the blondes! Spotted: One of our favorite Gossip Girls Blake Lively and model Natasha Poly wearing the same maxi dress from the Gucci Resort collection. Blake is all smiles as she accessorizes the burnt orange frock with funky jewels and sun-kissed skin. Natasha, on the other hand, poses like the model she is with just a simple clutch in hand. Both are bombshells, but which look do you prefer?
Mommy's Lil Helper: Sole Mates Katie Holmes, Kate Beckinsale, and Victoria Beckham are a few moms who don't let children get in the way of fashion. Sporting heels at the beach, playground, or pool are no big deal to these glam mommies. More in tune with Jennifer Garner's sneaker style or Reese Witherspoon's flats fetish, I don't bother much with heels.
Have you found your perfect pair of sunnies yet? If not, look to Anne Hathaway, Christina Ricci, and Halle Berry for inspiration. Halle's light-colored lenses go great with her olive-toned complexion, and while Christina and Anne have vastly different noses, their sunnies fit them to a "t." And we want to help you find a pair that fits too, so read on!

European Vogue magazines are pushing some fashion buttons. Alas, fashion must always be exciting, daring, and innovative. Can I get an amen?
First, Vogue Italia's all-black July issue and now editor Carine Roitfeld, with photog Mario Testino and muse Raquel Zimmermann, take a stand for fur. One of the longest standing debates in fashion — and here on Fab — Vogue is clearly saying "in your face antifur advocates." This spread is provocative and aggressive; from the high-octane furs to the black leather to the raccoon-eyed model. It's powerful.
Powerful, but is it freaky or fabulous?
NY Magazine Wants to Send You to Fashion Week and Take You Shopping! If you've spent every Fashion Week walking by Bryant Park while contemplating how you can bludgeon an unsuspecting blogger and swipe the badge off her neck so you can go enjoy all the luscious fashion, free booze, and gratuitous star-f*cking, you're in luck!Comments
Never, ever, rid yourself of a denim skirt. It's a classic. OK, maybe you can toss it if it's acid wash, but still, you never know.
Little Miss Naughty is looking just that in this Vintage '80s high-waist denim pencil skirt ($20). I could totally see Rachel Bilson in this with a simple tank and the bag to have. Scratch that — I could see me in it with a naughty tank and vintage clutch. See, denim skirts appease everyone.
I'm starting to develop a teeny bopper girl crush on Ashley Tisdale. What can I say? The High School Musical star is quite a little cutie in her trendy LA warm-weather looks. Earlier, she perfectly exemplified the beauty of an elongated cardi. She's wearing some favorites here: Ray-Ban Wayfarers, fedora, a macho watch, Louis Vuitton bag, Havaianas flip-flops. But what sets this apart is the colored bra underneath her all-white ensemble, which is a styling technique I personally partake in.
Stars in Elizabeth and James Stylish stars are clamoring for the designs from Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's second line. Head Project Runway fashionista Heidi Klum layered an Elizabeth and James jacket and sequined tunic over skinny jeans. "You can change anything . . . by the way you put it together," Mary-Kate told USA Today. "It's almost like creating a little fantasy world for yourself."Comments
Gwyneth Paltrow has been named the 2008 ambassador for the Key to the Cure campaign with Saks Fifth Avenue. Paltrow will be the sixth Oscar-winning actress to become the ambassador to the program, which has raised over $28 million for cancer institutions.
The actress, who lost her father from the disease in 2002, stated, “If there is anything I can do to help raise money, especially with a charity like this, I will. I read about the charity and how aggressively they are trying to find a cure, not only for women’s cancers but also for other cancers. They target a lot of different areas out there. They support people who are coming up with innovative ideas to cure cancer. It’s an issue that touched me in a lot of ways.”
Karl Lagerfeld has created this year's T-shirt to benefit the campaign. The $40 tee features two arrows crossing on its front with a heart, and illustration of the designer himself on the back. Items will be available Oct. 16-19 at Saks stores, Off 5th Stores, and Saks.com.
