You can add model to Michelle Williams's growing list of talents. The Oscar-nominated actress may just be the most adorable lookbook model we've ever seen, slipping into Boy by Band of Outsiders's super-sweet frocks for the label's quirky Spring shoot in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Michelle dons a dapper topper, a little white dress, and a pretty printed maxi all while picnicking in the park and snooping around the grounds. The book unfolds like a bit of a mystery — complete with a shot at Hitchcock's tombstone. Of course, we're a little preoccupied with what Michelle is wearing and how insanely sweet she looks in the line's covetable collection. Click through to get a peek at our favorite shots, then be sure to click over to Boy by Band of Outsiders's blog for the rest of the Spring lookbook.
Reese Witherspoon's new flick, This Means War, hits the big screen on Feb. 17, in just a week. And while it's hard to deny the beauty of the two lead male characters — Chris Pine and Tom Hardy — it's even harder to resist her character Lauren's fabulous onscreen wardrobe. Costume designer Sophie De Rakoff describes Lauren's style as "sexy, chic, modern, and confident."
This isn't the first time Sophie and Reese have worked together. In fact, Sophie also styled Reese in Legally Blonde 2, Sweet Home Alabama, and Four Christmases. So how did she get the opportunity to work with Reese again on This Means War? "I was pretty much the only person on the list who didn't have an Oscar nomination, so I knew I would have to work my ass off to get the job," Sophie told us. To find out more about Sophie's styling experience, Reese's onscreen fashions, and how to get her character's look, read on.CelebStyle: How did you get involved with This Means War?
Sophie De Rakoff: I was given the opportunity to interview with McG, the director of This Means War, because of my prior professional relationship with Reese. He knew that we work well and happily together, and so agreed to meet with me. However, having said that, I "won" the job by traditional means. I read the script, loved it, put together a killer presentation, and went to the meeting and presented my vision for the movie. There is an energy in the room when you have a really good meeting, and this was one of those times.

While Rachel McAdams rocked a strapless Vivienne Westwood to the LA premiere of The Vow last night, Revenge star Ashley Madekwe opted for something a bit more casual cool. We love that this fresh outfit can go from red carpet to real life without ever having to change a thing. Ashley started her look off with Loft's colorblock striped polo top, which you can also add to your closet. She opted to pair it with faded black skinny jeans, matching green sandals, and a bold red chain-strap bag, but you can also tuck it into a flouncy gold miniskirt for a fancier affair. For accessories, Ashley mixed metals like a gold watch, leather studded bracelet, silver bangles, and a silver ring. And let's not forget the cherry on top: her bright pink lipstick.
Olivia Palermo is known for layering plush furs, pretty prints, and sky-high heels, making her the epitome of ladylike luxe. But while strolling NYC, Olivia showcased an understated ensemble by trading in her feminine pumps for slouchy black boots, a shearling Mulberry jacket, and a blue Dior satchel. If you love seeing this style star in dressed-down duds as much as we do, channel your inner Palermo by pairing low-key boots with a similar shearling jacket, skinny jeans, and a structured navy bag.
Christian Louboutin is celebrating 20 years of designing his gorgeous red soles this year, and he created a limited-edition capsule collection chock-full of his signature style to celebrate. We caught up with Mr. Louboutin at Neiman Marcus Beverly Hills, where he told us how he first got into the business, his perpetual obsession with showgirls, and how he's a pro on the trapeze. Watch our full interview with Christian Louboutin in today's FabFlash. On Allison: Topshop top, Stella & Dot necklace, Urban Outfitters blazer.
The love scenes on Gossip Girl may be scorching, but shooting in chilly NYC requires the cast to don lots of layers. Newcomer Ella Rae Peck's long red coat and charcoal-gray scarf sealed in much-needed warmth, while her gray suede Pour La Victoire wedges took her ensemble to new heights. We added a striped neon sweater and leather hobo — similar to the one she's carrying — to finish off her cozy screen style. This look is perfect for a lunch date with friends, or switch it up with a pair of over-the-knee boots for a night out.
With celebrities taking a walk on the wilder side, we're seeing everything from leopard spots to zebra stripes cropping up on the red carpet. To this point, we love the way Emma Stone dressed up a peachy Lanvin number with a quirky serpent collar, how Natalia Vodianova added sleek dynamic to her ensemble with the help of an olive-green python-print jacket, and how Revenge's Ashley Madekwe paired a sheer snakeskin top with cool-girl leather shorts. These slick reptilian accents inject a double dose of exotic texture and playfulness into any look. From subtle accessories to overtly embellished apparel, we've got seven celeb-inspired ways to style up your snakeskin pieces. Click through now and shop your favorites.
