While most of us are piling on the layers, Kate Moss is taking them off in St. Barts. The supermodel is currently in the Caribbean for work but managed to squeeze in some time in the sun with her husband, Jamie Hince, too. Kate epitomizes effortless bohemian style, and she certainly delivered with an all-white outfit that we plan to re-create when the warm weather returns! If you're lucky enough to be heading to the tropics for the holidays, get a little style inspiration from Kate in this episode of Fab Flash! On Allison McNamara: Urban Outfitters top.
If you're a handbag girl and you love yourself a good sale, then you're in luck (times two) because we've hunted down 9 designer bags that are majorly chic and discounted. Inside, you'll find everything from a leopard Christian Louboutin clutch perfect for after-hours fun and a textured woven Rebecca Minkoff satchel to a rich tasseled Mulberry. But wait, that's not all — we also tracked down a black and white Phillip Lim bag, the perfect green See by Chloé companion, and a fabulous colorblocked shopper tote by Marni. Tempted yet? Click on to see and shop them all.
We're not shy about breaking the rules — at least not when it comes to the whole "white after Labor Day" thing. We wore white jeans well into September, donned ivory sweaters through the Fall, and are now giving our Winter an even more elegant twist by embracing these ultrachic celebrity examples, all of which are supersophisticated. Yes, that's the common denominator in this latest lookbook — a carefully curated collection of our favorite celebrities and their very stylish ways of incorporating ivory, cream, and striking white into their outerwear, eveningwear, and everything in between. The shade looked gorgeous coming down the runways at J. Mendel, Derek Lam, and more of our favorite Fall '12 collections, but this celebrity pack offers some real-world inspiration for bringing the look to life. Just click on for the amazing celebrity style, and then shop the lookbook to channel the same chic play on Winter styling for yourself.
Katie Holmes is 34 today, and even though most of us still think of her as Joey Potter, the girl-next-door on Dawson's Creek, the Broadway actress, mother, and serious style setter has since solidified her place in the fashion industry. Katie has appeared on scores of fashion magazine covers, graced countless glossy editorials, been the face of major ad campaigns (with Ann Taylor and H. Stern both under her belt), and, oh yeah, she also (currently) codesigns a clothing line called Holmes & Yang. The thing about Katie is, she has an uncanny ability to transform in front of the camera — and to celebrate her big day, we've rounded up more than 50 of her most breathtaking fashion spreads. Click through to see each one now.
Achieving a look that's both warmth inducing and chic can be a challenge come wintertime, but don't despair, there is hope yet. As seen on this street styler, all it takes are a few different textures to look the part of the downtown sophisticate. Simply layer a tweed coat over a basic warm knit, then round out your getup with leather leggings and cool moto boots. For the final touch, top off your cold-weather ensemble with a cozy black snood and sleek cat-eye sunglasses. Inspired? We love this fresh twist on Winter dressing, and if you do too, get a similar look with our key shopping picks below.
