German actress Anna Maria Mühe showed off her major fashion chops at a movie premiere in Berlin. The blond beauty tucked a silk white blouse into eye-catching cobalt trousers — which match her striking blue peepers — with black pointed pumps. She finished off her menswear-inspired look with a loose updo, ruffled navy clutch, and gold cuff bracelet. These pants would also work well with a loose tank, funky tie-up wedges, and a straw fedora for your next romp in the sun.
Paris Couture Week Spring 2012 just wrapped up, and the City of Light was bustling with fashion's finest. Trendsetting celebrities including Elizabeth Olsen, Olivia Palermo, and Cameron Diaz were spotted making their rounds at the couture shows and looking fabulous while doing so. It appears that the overarching theme for Spring 2012 couture is ladylike silhouettes made modern via textural intrigue at Armani Privé, puffed sleeves at Chanel, and sheer fabrics at Christian Dior. Watch today's Fab Flash to see it all. On Allison: Jason Wu for Target blouse.
If you're looking for someone to blame for your current short-shorts addiction, may we suggest Dr. Zoe Hart (played expertly by Rachel Bilson) from Hart of Dixie? Answering the age-old question "can doctors wear shorts?" with a resounding yes, Zoe shrugs off criticism from her fellow Bluebell-ians by sporting short-shorts under her lab coat with confidence and aplomb. From slouchy leather, to soft scallops, to laid-back cuffed denim, Zoe's penchant for shorts is chic and refreshing — no matter how "inappropriate" Lemon Breeland thinks she is. Click through to see — and shop — seven of our favorite Hart of Dixie short-shorts moments.

There are few accessories so versatile you could pair them with anything in your closet. Case in point: Reese Witherspoon's ikat-print Theodora & Callum scarf, which she wore over an all-black ensemble at the airport in Paris. This neutral wrap can also be worn over a chambray dress with tan sandals for a cute and sweet Summer look, or try liquid leggings, a striped long-sleeve tee, and suede booties for a play on patterns. Score Reese's exact scarf and start incorporating it into your everyday style.
The '70s trend was one of the most talked about in 2011, but it shows no signs of stopping in 2012. Three gorgeous stars — Jessica Alba, Jenna Dewan, and Kristin Cavallari — were all recently spotted rocking the groovy look in LA. All opted for wide-leg denim but made the look their own via different tops and accessories. Step inside to see and shop three new fabulous ways to rock the '70s trend in 2012.
Solange Knowles struck an electric pose at a Tiffany celebration in NYC. She wasn't afraid to pair her citrus Christopher Kane frock (also available in hot pink) with multicolor Fendi sandals and a vibrant CC Skye clutch. Solange kept her makeup minimal but opted for a few statement rings and wide gold cuff. Keep this look in mind for a Spring or Summer soiree, or for a more casual approach, swap the neon frock for skinnies in the same hue, a white tee, and a jean jacket. Top the look off with a statement necklace and a messy bun to turn heads wherever you go.
