The picture-perfect Alba-Warren clan donned Parisian-chic ensembles while grabbing lunch at Dominick's Italian restaurant in LA. Jessica chose a classic white and black look — layered sheer dress, fitted black blazer, and matching patent oxfords — while Honor spiced it up with a lace skirt, printed tights, and a knit beret. Lots of arm candy, a green envelope bag, and a top-knot bun finished off Jess's lunching style. Shop similar items here.
Lauren Conrad arrived at LAX looking ready for a SoCal Christmas in bright colors and Summer accessories. LC paired her hot-pink Joe's Jeans with a tan knit sweater and glossy TKEES flip-flops.

New Year's Eve may very well be your best excuse to get all dressed up, try something totally new, and make a major style statement — we consider it our duty to help you ring in the new year looking your most fabulous. To kick off our Countdown to NYE series, we're re-creating an outfit inspired by one of the ultimate '60s-era style icons, Edie Sedgwick. Edie had a ground-breaking aesthetic — short hair, dramatic eye makeup (it was said that she often wore multiple strips of false lashes), and thigh-baring hemlines. Her look is incredibly easy to channel and mostly defined by fitted silhouettes and a graphic black and white color palette. Once you've got your basics, just add a few key Edie-centric pieces: black tights, kitten heels, a faux-fur coat, and her signature oversize, shoulder-dusting earrings. Ready to rock it like Edie?

Katie Holmes celebrated her 33rd birthday this weekend in New York City and stepped out in style for the happy occasion. We spotted her in several polished ensembles, including our favorite: a bold black and white number. Katie is always one to experiment with fashion — cue her signature slouchy boyfriend jeans — and her birthday dinner at Buddakan restaurant was no exception. She opted for a versatile black jumpsuit, then layered a Victorian lace blouse underneath. Watch to see all three of Katie's birthday weekend outfits. On Allison: Topshop blouse, Linea Pelle bracelet.

To reinvent the wardrobe wheel, look no further than the darkest reaches of your closet, where refreshed styling bounty awaits. We've tapped our style-savvy community and fashion-wise editors to breathe new life into pieces we already own. Rest assured, this one-minute makeover is sweet, simple, and budget-friendly — no strings attached. This week, we're in a merlot kind of mood; all you need to reinvent your look is a burst of burgundy.
- While a bright pop of color can add a neon-infused note to any look, a burst of dark red can inject just the right amount of sultry into an ensemble. Rock shades of maroon in a textured scarf, floppy brimmed hat, corduroy pants, or tailored blazer.
- Mix this cool tint with warmer layers — it's all about the unexpected accents and daring details. Whether it's a burgundy maxi skirt paired with a white button-up and mustard yellow sweater or a crimson-colored cardigan matched with toastier tones, this is an autumnal color that can transition seamlessly into a Winter outfit.
- Wear this burgundy hue in plush fabrics. Its deep, velvety complexion makes for a luxurious palette. We envision this cool color looking extra suave on a floor-length silk dress, felt smoking slippers, cable-knit sweaters, and suede knee-high boots.
