This week, we spotted celebs in all parts of the world looking Spring fresh in a bouquet of pretty dresses and cool separates. We loved Jennifer Aniston's hot LWD and swooned over Emmy Rossum's spectator booties. Cat Deeley's fantastic fringe also left us besotted. There's more where that came from — time to test your fashion skills!Take the Quiz

Just as the warm weather starts to roll in, I get a serious urge to start collecting sandals. So, when I spied these snaky, strappy Enzo Angiolini Ethos Sandals ($80, originally $99), I knew I had to have them — what else would I wear with a mini and a blazer on hot night out? Lucky me, Piperlime's having a sale — up to 70 percent off on shoes, bags, and apparel.
I've been to one Lady Gaga concert, but that's simply not enough. There's another one coming to town and I need help selecting the most amazing, Gaga-licious ensemble — here are some pics for inspiration. Overall, I want to look forward but chic, Gaga unique. Were you up for the challenge?
I started you off with these Giuseppe Zanotti Black Fuchsia Sandals ($750). Let's see those Gaga ensembles!

Kim Kardashian advertised for her store Dash in Miami, carrying a shopping bag in one hang and a Balenciaga in the other! A green vest — very similar to this one by Alexander Wang — and Christian Louboutin cage booties gave her black skinny jeans and sheer t-shirt a Spring-like feel, but it was her statement necklace that really spiced up the ensemble. The exact style of her purse isn't available online in bone, but you can achieve the same look with the Arena Classic Day bag shown here. Shop it all now!
There's no doubt music has a tremendous influence over fashion and how people dress. Musicians in particular have become fashion icons for many, myself included, as I look to the likes of Jimi Hendrix and Izzy Stradlin for inspiration. Think of the magnificent Axl Rose in his heyday — oversized leather and tight, tight bicyle shorts. This influenced his good friend Donatella Versace to re-create a look on the catwalk that was oddly familiar to the fiery redhead singer and was recognized throughout the '90s as a signature trend.
Then there's David Bowie and his alter ego Ziggy Stardust, who styled a generation through its decadence of glitz and glamour. Go back to the '60s when Beatlemania was overtaking the world and London was the fashion hotspot. Paco Rabanne was the designer and his style of prints, PVC, and tailoring dressed the nation. Skirts had never been so short and boots so high. A rebellion against the classic and conservative style of the '50s with their full netted skirts, when showing some ankle was seen as incredibly risque. It was a fresh and exciting time, there was a new movement in music and with it fashion.
