Dior just announced that Jennifer Lawrence will front its Spring/Summer 2013 ad campaign for Miss Dior handbags. The 22-year-old Hunger Games actress was hand-selected by the fashion house's new lead designer, Raf Simons, and is the youngest person to ever represent the Parisian brand. Click on to watch today's Fab Flash for all the details. On Allison McNamara: Greylin top, Vince Camuto skirt.
Kim Kardashian styled a sheer black high-low dress with strappy black sandals while running errands with her sisters in Miami. The high-low hem of her sweet-cum-sexy mini flowed perfectly in the Miami breeze, while her geometric bangle, spiked bracelet, and onyx ring added a little sass to her greek goddess look. Kim is no stranger to edgy-chic styles, working lots of leather into her everyday ensembles, but we particularly love how she fashioned this streamlined look so effortlessly. Take a cue from this trendsetter and style a sheer black high-low dress with matching strappy sandals and a few gold jewels for your next date night.
There's nothing quite as satisfying as pulling on a boyfriend sweater (whether it's actually your boyfriend's or an oversize treasure you've somehow inherited over the course of your lifetime) on a cold autumnal morning. As the temperature dips, we're looking for more comfy and cozy pieces to base our looks around. Instead of scouring the usual virtual racks, we headed over to the men's department and found some irresistible pieces we'd like to add to our Fall basics lineup: a cozy grandpa cardigan sweater, printed puffer vest, and camouflage tee. Just how do we plan on wearing these borrowed-from-the-boys pieces? It's all about adding an unexpected pop of masculinity to your regular feminine looks, and we're showing you just how to do it.
A great outfit deserves acknowledgement — and in this case, some copycat behavior, too. After all, it is the highest form of flattery. Let's see, it's got the perfect mix of Fall elements, all without ever going overboard. And, like our street-style subject, we pretty much live in our blouse-and-jeans combos come cold weather. Thus, it's all about honing in on those key punch-up pieces to give an ensemble its flair. Case in point: her velvet burgundy-hued blazer not only provides a luxe textural finish, it just happens to showcase this season's most wanted shade of red. Along with her staple add-ons (read: aviator sunglasses, a slouchy black scarf, and a classic black tote), she tied the look together with a cool, studded flat twist. Subtle at first glance, but certainly dynamic upon closer review — we'll never say "no" to a look with classic appeal, seasonal relativity, and a really amazing blazer to boot. Click on to shop her outfit now, with every piece under $120.

Russia is having a moment. Thanks to Keira Knightley's latest film incarnation as Anna Karenina and real-life Russian fashion darling, Miroslava Duma's latest Fashion Week looks, we can't seem to shake the visions of each of these beauties, decked out in decadent furs, rich fabrications, and enviable jeweled add-ons. That's what our Fall fantasies are made of, as of late. Fortunately, dreams become reality when you couple inspirations with this season's actual shopping options: baroque themes that we saw on the runways at Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana, and Balmain now manifesting as a pair of opulent gold trousers or a pair of studded ankle-straps. These finds make channeling that high-society drama with Miroslava's street-styled twist all the more attainable.Clockwise from top left: Keira Knightley as Anna Karenina, Shourouk E-Vegas Earring ($465), Valentino Couture Winter 2012, Topshop Paisley Jacquard Cigarette Trousers ($90), Zara Ballerina With Jewels ($90), Miroslava Duma, Elcom Fox Fur Stole ($1,539)
Rose Byrne gave a lesson in accessorizing pairing a black ruffled Converse One Star skirt ($25) with a leopard-print belt and bright red clutch at a Target party in NYC. The actress cinched her peppered black sweater and flirty mini with a wild leopard belt, then completed her monochromatic look with a pair of black suede Sergio Rossi pumps and red leather clutch for a pop of flair. Take a cue from Rose and work a signature leopard and red duo with your black-on-black ensembles or step outside the box with this zebra LOFT belt ($35, originally $40) and this cobalt Cole Haan clutch ($68) for an unexpected twist.
