Kim Kardashian grabbed lunch with sister Kourtney at Serafina in Miami and upon exit showed off her latest bold style. Up top she wore a simple white cap-sleeve top, but on bottom Kim kept things funky in a pair of tan wide-leg pants. For accessories, she sported her favorite gold chain Céline necklace, beige futuristic sunglasses, a gold watch, and wedge espadrilles. Mimic Kim's latest style by investing in a pair of wide-leg trousers, then matching them up with a simple tee and standout accessories, including these similar Stella McCartney beige sunglasses ($190).
Layering — without looking like the Michelin man — can be a challenging task in the Winter. For inspiration, we're zoning in on Mulberry's runway look for expert styling cues. For an extra textural look, Mulberry's creative director Emma Hill paired a gorgeous white lace midi skirt with a rustic sweater (cinched in with a skinny brown belt), fur chubby, and chunky wedge boots for a cozy, après-ski getup. Sadly, since we can't afford everything off the runway, we found similar picks to emote the same gorgeous cold weather look — and bonus, we found a similar Mulberry sweater on sale! Just shop our outfit in the shopping links below.

We asked top Wella stylist Alexandra Matiz, owner of Muze Salon in New York, what her best tips are for keeping your locks in tip-top condition. Her work has been seen in places like Fashion Week and top beauty and fashion publications, and she is also giving us a peek into what is trending for this season!
How long have you been a stylist, and how did it become your passion?
I've been a stylist over 20 years and find it to be a creative, fun, and always-evolving profession. Also I love that I am able to touch people in such a special way that makes them feel good about themselves.
What are some trends we can look forward to this season?
Some of the trends for this season are colors are getting richer; I prefer to say that rather than juicier. Reds are more natural, tone-on-tone dimension is very in. Blondes will have more saturated golds with violet hues in them. A remembrance of classic champagne tones. Hairstyles are easygoing, effortless, and soft to the touch.
When it comes to keeping color-treated hair looking healthy, what are your best tips?
To help keep your color-treated hair looking its best, make sure that you that use products that are color-safe, like the Brilliance Shampoo and Conditioner from Wella Professionals. To help condition your ends, which tend to be more damaged, use a weekly intense treatment for five minutes, like the Brilliance Deep Treatment Mask, also from the Wella Professionals line.
What are some tips to keeping hair looking healthy between cuts?
To help your locks looking their best between visits, always protect your hair from overly working it with your tools. A great way is to prep your hair with Velvet Amplifier, which will improve manageability and improve your finished look. To protect your hair from heat damage, use a thermal protectant spray like Thermal Image.
I especially love Wella's Natural Volume Mousse. It gives tons of body without building up too much in the hair. Flowing Form is also one of my faves, because it helps to control rebellious hair. I love finishing the look with Stay Essential hair spray.

Nikki Reed got into the holiday spirit working a dark green Rachel Zoe riding coat ($347, originally $495) with AG Adriano Goldschmied ankle-zip denim ($225) while arriving at LAX airport. The actress layered her jacket over a striped Pencey tee, then topped her travel look with black Western ankle boots, a black CC Skye messenger bag ($695), and a brown fedora. Score Nikki's exact blazer, denim, and bag to pair with a striped top and ankle boots to mimic her cozy style or layer her cheery coat over a black sequin dress for cocktails with the girls.
If you're asking yourself, "What can't Miranda Kerr do?" we're right there with you. And, now that we've gotten our first look at the Australian model as the new face of Mango's Spring 2013 campaign, we're pretty sure she's just getting warmed up. Don't worry, we're sharing the love (just peek inside now). Miranda has taken the reigns from another supermodel you may have heard of — Kate Moss — and joining the ranks of Mango's other famous campaign faces, which include Karlie Kloss, Scarlett Johansson, Penélope Cruz, Diane Kruger, and Christy Turlington. That's no small feat. So, what does Miranda think of her new gig? "I am delighted to be collaborating with Mango. . . . What's more, Mango is a brand that I love. You always find the perfect garment for every occasion." Click on for some of the first campaign snaps, shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, as well as Miranda's head-to-toe Mango look as she promoted the ads in Madrid today. Then, take a "commemorative" look back at some of Kate Moss and Karlie Kloss's most recent Mango spreads.

Grammatically speaking, "maje" is both a noun and an adjective. There's "Maje," the French label and "maje," a shortened version of "major," used to describe something especially so. The two can even be used together, like: "That cobalt jacquard Maje coat is so MAJE!"
But the maje wordplay involving Maje doesn't stop there — the brand just coined the term "majed." Which, if we understand the video below, means to get styled by Alexa Chung, the very maje face of Maje, in NYC with maje Maje clothes. Confused yet? Watch the following clip, it'll all make sense.
