Leave it to Diane Kruger to show us an interesting spin on the '40s-inspired ladylike look — the actress was in Paris to promote her new film Les Adieux a la Reine and stepped out in a chic black and white Derek Lam dress with an embroidered contrast collar. The dress, which is from the designer's Fall '12 collection, is the perfect blend of effortless and sophisticated, and looks especially gorgeous with Diane's polished black pumps and loose updo; plus, we couldn't be more obsessed with the bold pop of red on the collar. Even though the dress won't officially be in stores until Fall, we're hoping to get in on the collared dress trend as soon as possible — and if you're unwilling to wait like we are, just click the widget below to shop the freshest batch of cute contrast-collared dresses for Spring.
Designers Rebecca Minkoff and Irene Neuwirth may be known as bag and jewelry gurus respectively, and they most certainly are, but the girls can put together quite the amazing outfit as well. Just check out what they each wore to the 2012 CFDA awards nominee announcement in NYC. Rebecca's self-designed floral blazer is perfect for an upcoming Spring activity. You can even pair it with a black leather skirt or shorts for something more dressy. Irene's blend of two prints, striped and plaids, is also super refreshing. And leave it to the bling babe to throw on contrasting statement earrings. Click through to get a closer look and to shop Rebecca and Irene's fabulous looks.
While bold trends can be fun, sometimes you just need a simple look with subtle pizazz to get you through your day. For those times, look to actress Rachael Taylor, who showcased the perfect dressed-down look on her way to set in NYC. Her embellished Sam Edelman loafers added subtle edge to her basics — a waffle-knit sweater and gray skinnies — while her satin headband, retro round shades, and black Prada tote polished off the look perfectly. Snag her exact kicks to pair with a black sweater and gray skinnies, then don't forget your structured leather tote and matching headband for a prim-meets-punk look.
Yes, the leopard-print motif is here to stay, but along with this spotted trend, we're seeing a new breed of animal-inspired accessories crop up. On the Fall '12 runways, both Anna Sui and Burberry showed off a plethora of owl-infused pieces, and on the red carpet, we've seen countless iterations of the reptile pattern take hold. Case in point: Emma Stone's serpent-laden Lanvin sheath at W Magazine's Golden Globes party or Sofia Vergara's jewel-encrusted snake cuff at the New Year's Eve movie premiere. For the quirkier style set, look to ladybug earrings, elephant pendants, and retro cat brooches for a touch of cute-cum-exotic embellishing. The end goal is to take a walk on the wild side — and all you have to do is add a cool piece of jewelry to get the look. Click through below to see our editors' picks and shop your favorites.
After spotting Rihanna, and now Kate Bosworth, in denim on denim, we think this could be the new celebrity love affair. While running errands in Beverly Hills, Kate paired an ombré chambray 7 For All Mankind shirt over a white ribbed tank with dark blue skinnies, then tossed on a pair of brown suede ankle boots. Her eclectic accessories — multiple necklaces, tan leather bracelet, and tortoise sunglasses — are classic Kate, but we are particularly loving her jeweled metallic box purse from the actress's own JewelMint line. Get in on denim on denim by wearing a chambray shirt, dark skinnies, and suede booties, or try layering a denim jacket over a chambray dress as the temps heat up.
St. Patrick's Day is coming up this weekend, so we've rounded up some stylish green pieces so you can celebrate the luck of the Irish in style and avoid getting pinched! Green also happens to be a huge color for Spring, so we promise you will get plenty of use out of these pieces. Whether you want to wear it as an accent color via a belt, cocktail ring, or handbag, or you want something a little more daring, like shorts or pants, we've found some amazing green finds that you'll want to wear long past St. Patrick's Day! On Allison McNamara: H&M top, Marni for H&M collar.
At a very fashionable lunch in LA, Charlize Theron wore an LBD that from afar doesn't look like anything special. But when we found out it's a coat dress by Boy by Band of Outsiders, that changed everything. When we zoomed in on the details, like the blazer-like lapel and pockets, the dress started to come to life. And it inspired us to go on a hunt for coats that are cute enough to be worn as a dress. That doesn't necessarily mean that you must wear the coat as a dress with nothing underneath. Rather, we found standout coats that you can keep on all night, buttoned or unbuttoned. Step inside to shop Charlize's exact coat dress and 13 other spotlight-worthy coats.
