Each year, Victoria's Secret selects one lucky Angel to wear the coveted multimillion-dollar Fantasy Bra, and this year Alessandra Ambrosio will be sporting this pricey piece of lingerie. The mother of two just gave birth to her second child in May, and we got the scoop on how she bounced back into runway-ready shape. Click on to hear more from Alessandra Ambrosio in today's Fab Flash. On Allison McNamara: ModCloth dress.
One of the best parts about the temperatures dropping are all the fabulous cold-weather pieces you get to wear. One of them is the turtleneck dress. Everyone from Petra Nemcova to Kate Beckinsale to Kate Middleton to Christina Hendricks have bundled up with their very own turtleneck dress, so let them inspire you to do the same. You can wear yours at night with booties like Petra, choose something mini and ivory like Kate, cinch yours with a wide belt like Duchess Kate did, or edge it up like Christina's black leather turtleneck dress. Shop similar turtleneck dresses below, as well as some of our other favorites, to get in on this chic and cozy Fall trend.
It was another wild week in the world of social media, and we caught up with some of our favorite style setters during their moments of work and play. Jessica Hart spent some time with her adorable dog Floyd on the set, while Margherita Missoni channeled her inner Marilyn Monroe by trying on a blond wig. Poppy Delevingne got some serious air (in some seriously short shorts) while shooting a spread for Marie Claire, and Rachel Zoe posed prettily at the Elle Women in Hollywood dinner.
Naomi Watts might have been playing soccer with her family in NYC, but she looked majorly chic, thanks to her new Helmut Lang black shearling coat ($2,195). With the Fall and Winter chill comes the need for cozy and cool outerwear, so if you've got money to burn, score Naomi's exact shearling coat now. You can also get the look via this less expensive Guess by Marciano black faux shearling coat ($478) or this Design History shearling coat ($207). If you prefer something lighter, this Nasty Gal tan shearling coat ($178) is also great.
Zooey Deschanel is admittedly "really into hair." And who could argue with that? The New Girl's signature bangs and quirky curls have made a name for her in the beauty world. Zooey's love for locks and the way she boldly expresses her personality through her 'do make her a natural fit to be Pantene's latest celebrity ambassador. And she's just in time to help relaunch Pantene's Beautiful Lengths campaign, which was founded in 2006 to provide free real-hair wigs to women battling cancer and the effects of hair loss.

Whether you're recently engaged, in the wedding party, or just plan on attending one this season, J.Crew is here to the rescue. The brand's Fall weddings and parties collection has every bridal party member covered with a gorgeous array of wedding gowns — simple, hopelessly romantic, lace- and floral-embellished — and bridesmaid dresses that can easily translate to wedding guest looks and holiday party attire. Check out our top three picks below from J.Crew's Fall wedding preview, and check out the collection in all of its glory right after. Which is your favorite wedding or bridesmaid look?
- Not the long-wedding-gown kind of gal? This ethereal one-shouldered knee-length dress is simply magical. We especially love the pretty shoulder floral embellishment.
- Equal parts modern and classic, this sheer, floral-embellished wedding gown is ideal for a daytime wedding in the garden.
- Deep purple, lace, and the perfect silhouette — can this strapless lace dress be any more perfect? We don't think so.
Kim Kardashian's edgy ensembles have us lusting after every piece, including her latest black-on-black travel look, which she took to new heights via mirrored gold Christian Louboutin T-strap pumps. Kim styled a sheer wrap Tom Ford blouse with black ankle-zip leather pants, then upped the glam factor via a crocodile Hermès tote and plush fur coat. She completed her Miami travel style with a gold chain-link bracelet, her signature tousled locks, and a sun-kissed glow. Mimic Kim's effortless glamour with a sheer black blouse, leather leggings, metallic gold pumps, and a crocodile tote to turn heads wherever the day, or night, takes you.
Floaty fabrics, creamy hues, and even gladiator sandals may all be among your favorite Summer pieces, but right here, they're the elements that make up an insanely chic bit of Fall street style. Consider this your real-life proof of just how wearable the Winter-white runway trend really is — it didn't take much for this street styler to outfit white on white with contemporary, downtown appeal. The key to making it all work is the textural intrigue and varying lengths. Start with an ivory slip dress in a gauzy, linen fabric, then throw on a waffle knit or otherwise textured pullover in a variation of cream or ecru. Note: the subtle differences in your white tones and the contrast between a breezy slip dress and chunky pullover will really set your look apart. As for the details, they're worth a look, too — gladiator heels in rich brown leather ground the light-as-air palette, while a sleek black shoulder bag is, well, just a good essential, no matter what the season (or the occasion).
