Nicole Richie was photographed at the Omnipeace event at STK restaurant in LA, glowing in black. She covered up her baby bump with a flowy tank and open jacket, but didn't leave her heels at home. Her red patent leather pumps made this look pop and her black Balenciaga clutch was the perfect accessory. Shop a similar look now.
You know when you can tell a woman is enjoying her frock? Here's when. Angie is the sight of maxi dress perfection at the 8th Annual Chrysalis Butterfly Balli in LA in this sheer green printed and belted Kaufman Franco dress. The print and fit are stellar, but the wraparound, crisscross brown belt takes it to a more interesting place. Angie always manages to look good, no — great, but this maxi fits her personality as well — unique, fun, and party ready. She could have stopped with the exotic dress, but she added further flair with disc chandelier earrings. It's official: statement earrings are redivivus.

Get ready to taste the delicious "Dessert of Shapewear" — Spanx's Haute Contour collection. Sara Blakely, founder of Spanx, felt bringing fashion to shapewear was the next step for her brand. Thus, was born a collection of beautiful shapewear that incorporates lace, scallops, mesh, and sheer fabrics. Now, it won't be embarrassing if your Spanx happen to show. Actually, some of the Haute Contour pieces, like the Couture Camisole ($198), worn by the model, are meant to show. Gwyneth Paltrow already got some; now it's your turn.

Cameron Diaz managed to stay dry while out and about on a rainy night in NYC. She dressed casually, but looked cute and put together in jeans and a pair of Chanel flats. She kept things neutral in a beige cardigan, which she put over a crisp striped button down, and a matching pashmina. Shop a similar outfit, including her tan purse, now!
I was fighting my inner demons in the Neiman's shoe department the other day (it's sale time), when I stumbled across a table of Elizabeth and James shoes. Mary-Kate and Ashley's much anticipated shoe line is out and about. The well-crafted shoes manage to be both unique and wearable, and remember Mary-Kate told me about how the gladiators were inspired by Ashley's trip to Greece? Yamas! These black suede d'orsays are reinvented classics — they look subtly sexy on. Are you impressed?
