Paris Fashion Week wrapped up yesterday, and now that the last model has walked the last runway, we're taking a look at our absolute favorites in the eveningwear category. A highlight had to be Alexander McQueen, whose designer Sarah Burton modeled her Winter-white-clad models after the story of the Ice Queen. Or Chanel, where Karl Lagerfeld made the evening jumpsuit the main focus over traditional gowns. There were fun, flirty, short dresses too. We've rounded out the top 25 most stunning evening looks and put them all for you here. Click away.

Sienna Miller caught our eye, stepping out in London in a look that's equal parts casual and pulled-together, thanks to easy layers and a structured, tweed coat ($325). Besides the chic neutral hues, we couldn't help but notice that she's sporting a pair of JewelMint's funky eros earrings ($30) to add some eclectic flair.

A little bird whispered in Fab's ear that Alexa Chung may be designing a second Fall collection for Madewell! We died a little over the first collection, which was filled with Peter Pan-collared dresses and velvet shorties. Additionally, on March 15, Alexa will be on Madewell's site modeling five pieces from the Spring collection with styling pieces from her own closet, and we hear there will be an announcement on the site and on Alexa's Twitter feed concerning the new collection. So, if you are as big an Alexa fan as we are, mark your calendar for March 15, because we bet there will be good news. In the meantime, here's a sneak peek at Alexa's styling skills: she pairs a Madewell chambray shirt with her own skirt, purse, and shoes.
To celebrate the launch of UK Style — a collaboration between French Connection and Sears — celebs and models, including Agyness Deyn, attended a party in at the Lexington Social House in Hollywood. Our favorite moment occurred when Jaime King and Nicky Hilton showed up in the same sequin cheetah-print dress from the collection. It just so happens we drooled over this dress when we wrote about the best Spring collaborations. If you would like to get in on the sequin leopard fun, this dress is $99 and shoppable right this moment at Sears.
There was definitely no shortage of gorgeous footwear during Paris Fashion Week — we were dazzled by Alexander McQueen's sky-high, inverted platforms, Lanvin's pencil-thin stiletto heels, and the shiny, sophisticated kitten-heel loafers from Jean Paul Gaultier. It's been a whirlwind, but now it's time to say farewell to Fashion Month with 50 of our Fab-approved picks. Click through to see the gorgeous pairs, and let us know your favorites!
When we saw this woman walking the streets of Paris (center photo), our jaws dropped — so gorgeous! Sure, she's wearing a sheer top, but she walks with such self-assurance and elegance, proving she can rock the sheer trend. After seeing it on the runways for Spring at Phillip Lim and Valentino, we know this trend is a good investment. Key points: pair it with ladylike elements so it doesn't feel cheap. A long flowy skirt and structured jacket can also balance out the sexiness of the sheer top. Click through our editor picks for gorgeous sheer black pieces to try.

With this season's nods to ladylike midi-skirts, oxfords, and other retro-chic wear, Gwyneth Paltrow's easy '50s style in The Talented Mr. Ripley provides the perfect inspiration for our Spring shopping list. It's a film that's remembered as much for its fashion as it is for its story, with good reason — we're currently coveting the same relaxed polish via calf-length skirts, knotted button-downs, and pretty scalloped edges on high-waist shorts and tops. Shop our picks below and channel the sweet-cum-casual vibe that's totally fresh for Spring.
