Suddenly, Cynthia Rowley seems that much cooler. An avid surfer, she is teaming up with Roxy for a collection named Cynthia Rowley for Roxy. The first collection will launch exclusively at Barneys New York and at Colette in Paris in March. But don't fret beach dwellers: it will also be available in Roxy stores and in Cynthia Rowley boutiques worldwide. The whole Rowley clan hits breaks: "My family and I surf a lot. Just about every weekend in the Summer, we go to Montauk, and in the winter we go to the Dominican Republic for long weekends. I love that we have this family activity that we all really enjoy.”
Partnering with an outside designer to create an apparel collection is a first for Roxy. But the masterminds behind the lifestyle brand know to keep up with the Jones, “Our mission at Roxy has always been to have one foot in the surf world and another foot in the fashion world,” said Randy Hild, executive vice president of marketing at Roxy. Down to the sandy details! Expect Rowley-inspired wetsuits, boards shorts, shorts, tees, dress, swimwear, and accessories. Neoprene headbands? Right on. And, keeping with the affordable Roxy price point, the collection will be priced from $18 wholesale for a printed scarf to $89 wholesale for a long-sleeve bodysuit. Shaka.

Jessica Alba was all smiles as she arrived at a friend's house in LA. She dressed casually yet stylishly in a pair of dark skinny jeans, a fitted plaid shirt, and some white patent leather oxfords. Her signature headband helped to accentuate her aviator sunglasses, which acted as her main accessory. Shop a similar look, including a delicate gold ring, now!
This time of year, all I do is blow my cash on all kinds of warm, cozy layering pieces. Good thing, Shopbop is already hosting 70 percent off, and this perfect Brochu Walker Toggle Vest ($110, originally $365), happens to be available at a fraction of the original price. It's still a little pricey, but it's bound to become a Winter staple. Its rustic-chic vibe — totally fashionable and fully functional. Throw over a long-sleeve tee and skinnies for a casual date night, or belt it and dress it up for work with taupe boots and a frilly skirt.
Kristen Bell was spotted on her way to a photographer's studio in Venice Beach, wearing a quintessential Fall ensemble. She wrapped an orange scarf around her neck, which added the perfect amount of spark to her otherwise blasé color scheme. She wore a Kain long-sleeved sheer tee under a cable knit sweater vest, which paired nicely with her black zip-leg jeans and booties. To finish off the look, she added some round shades, an oversize bag, and a beaded bracelet. Get this look by shopping similar items now.

In this scene from Private Practice, Doctor Montgomery goes for a slightly more cutesy look than we're used to. Her Martin halter dress has a playful feel, especially when paired with bright red Dolce & Gabbana patent pumps. Her pearl jewelry, however, reminds us that she is a doctor, and a sophisticated one at that. Shop similar items now including her go-to Lockheart bag!
