The Gotham Independent Film Awards unofficially kicked off the 2013 award season, and needless to say, we're already very excited. Last night, Marion Cotillard, Emily Blunt, and Lara Stone were just a few of the leading ladies who delivered easy glamour on the red carpet. Marion opted for a coat dress by Christian Dior, naturally, while model Lara showed off her baby bump in a fiery red Calvin Klein number. Watch today's Fab Flash to hear all the details. On Allison McNamara: Forever 21 top, Kendra Scott earrings. Hair and makeup by Desirae Cherman.
There are two types of coats in this world: everyday casual and nighttime dressy. With the holiday party circuit warming up, we're all about the latter right now. Here's a scenario to ponder: it's chilly outside and you've got on your pretty dress and heels, ready to hit the town. The last thing you want to do is finish your fabulous ensemble with a heavy puffer coat, right? That's where the dressy coat comes in. It can be anything from bright red to brocade to tweed to metallic and can include fun details like peplum, a fur collar, capelets, and prints. Check out nine dressy coats we're loving right now to shield yourself from the cold in major style.
We all want to get more bang for our buck, especially when it comes to buying gifts for our loved ones — and when it comes to finding a bargain, we're experts. We've tracked down 30 finds — an edgy tote bag, a statement necklace, even a crisp coat — that all happen to clock in under a cool $30. Whether you scoop these pieces up for yourself, or keep them in mind for a friend or family member, you'll be pleasantly surprised at how paltry the price tags are. Click through to see and shop these unbelievable finds right now.
Miranda Kerr swapped yesterday's polished pairing for an edgier ensemble while toting her son, Flynn, around NYC. The model layered a quilted Balenciaga leather jacket over a black top and Nobody skinny jeans, then slipped on a pair of badass Tabitha Simmons lace-up leather ankle boots for extra sass. The gorgeous mom completed her street style with a pair of Flint shades, a few dainty rings, and a floral Prada tote for a touch of feminine flair. If you love Miranda's latest NYC look as much as we do, shop similar pieces below.
Katharine McPhee wore a punchy turquoise button-down blouse at an event in NYC, but it was her black leather and shearling jacket that really caught our eye. It's a fresh take on the motorcycle jacket trend and the shearling adds a soft touch to the whole tough vibe. On bottom the actress wore black jeggings and black pumps, then accessorized via a white bangle, some gold rings, and a bright red lip. Mimic Katharine's look with this similar Lord & Taylor faux shearling jacket ($118) and this Tinley Road blouse ($47, originally $79).
When it's 45 degrees outside, wearing a dress might be the last thing on your mind. Think again; with just a few layering tricks, a dress can be worn with the utmost ease, style, and cozy chic appeal. Right now, we're pairing our pretty wrap dresses with a slim-fitting turtleneck and knee-high boots for a warm, yet feminine Winter ensemble that looks fresh off the runway. Finish off this sleek combo with cozy black tights and a warm coat for a look that's ideal for the office and beyond. Love our outfits? Shop the links below to get the look!

Beyoncé is known for rocking the coolest pieces — especially at basketball games — and we are totally smitten with her latest colorful Stella McCartney letter blouse ($994, originally $1,485) she sported while cheering on the New Jersey Nets in Brooklyn. The singer then styled her quirky topper with slick leather pants, blue suede pumps, and a black leather hobo bag, then tossed on a gold chain-link necklace and a few gold rings for a touch of bling. Score Beyoncé's exact blouse to pair with leather leggings, blue pumps, and a few noteworthy accessories for your next movie date.
Most people don't go furniture shopping in a fancy jumpsuit, but then again Kim Kardashian isn't most people. The reality star looked sexy in a black plunging jumpsuit while perusing home goods in Miami. While we don't advocate wearing this look during the day, it would be fabulous for one of your upcoming holiday soirees. Just finish with some shiny baubles and a slick blazer or coat, and you'll definitely wow the crowds. Shop our favorite plunging black jumpsuits below to get started.
