Rooney Mara continues to amaze us with her understated yet powerful style. For her latest appearance at the Academy Awards nominations luncheon in Beverly Hills, the actress opted to mix way high with way low, pairing a black Asos jumpsuit with a sharp white Thierry Mugler jacket. For accessories, Rooney kept it simple with just a pinky ring. This look solidifies the fact that it's vital to have a stunning white jacket in your repertoire. Since the Mugler is super pricey, here are a few equally standout, less pricey options. This Miriam Ocariz jacket ($415) would look just as fabulous over a black jumpsuit or dress, this Allynil blazer ($108) has a similar flowy effect, and this European Culture jacket ($158) is just as unique. Now all you need is a wide-legged jumpsuit or trousers to achieve Rooney's fashion-forward look for your next special event.

Angelina Jolie sparked the emerald trend when she wore a pair of gorgeous Lorraine Schwartz oversized teardrop earrings at the Oscars in 2009. Since then, emerald jewels have become a trademark for Jolie; the actress has been spotted wearing the gemstone most recently at the Producers Guild Awards and the New York Film Critics Awards. Now, even more of Hollywood's leading ladies, like Miranda Kerr and Debra Messing, are following suit. Emerald-hued jewels add an extra luxe touch to any ensemble — red carpet or cocktail — and look amazing against any skin tone. Want more proof?

Lucky magazine is one of our favorite sources for great shopping tips. We're thrilled to share this fabulous story on getting the right fit for your work pants from our friends at Lucky!
By definition, they’re not going to seem as fun as your red jeans or printed pants. But sensible and professional as they might be, there's no reason your work trousers shouldn’t be every bit as flattering.
To look taller . . .. . . choose a pant with a hem that just barely skims the floor. It'll create the illusion of longer legs without overwhelming you in fabric. Labels that offer petite sizing — like these, with a 30" inseam instead of 33.5" — are probably the easiest way to do this.

If you have a wedding or cocktail party coming up this Spring, look to Rachel McAdams's chic look at the premiere of The Vow for inspiration. The actress zeroed in on the pretty-cum-sexy vibe, opting for a curve-conscious Vivienne Westwood dress, but in a soft pastel hue. There's also a cool contrast to her evening style — Rachel toughened up her cocktail frock with Pomellato diamond and gold chain statement jewels, then finished on a softer note with a pair of nude Louboutin pumps and a delicate lace-trimmed clutch in hand.
