The name Valentino brings one thought to mind — gorgeous red-carpet dresses! The iconic fashion brand celebrated its 50th anniversary last evening by launching a new flagship store in Beverly Hills. Stylish stars, including Nicky Hilton, Kim Kardashian, and Rachel Zoe came out to fete the new store on Rodeo Drive. Watch today's Fab Flash to see our favorite looks from the soiree. On Allison McNamara: Rebecca Taylor dress, Belle Noel bracelets.
Join us in wishing Lady Gaga a happy 26th birthday today! It's been a while since we've seen the fearless singer out and about, but in honor of her special day, we've tracked down three gorgeously bold looks we love. But, let's face it, only Gaga can pull off Gaga, so in order to make her looks more realistic to real life, we've put our spin on each: one for the office, one for a daytime soiree, and one for nighttime fun. Step inside to re-create Gaga's amazing looks for your everyday life.
It doesn't take a lot to make us happy; sometimes, all it takes is a really great dress. That must be why we're so fond of Spring's ladylike trend — all it takes is a pretty frock or a figure-flaunting skirt to achieve the same comely looks we saw on Louis Vuitton, Prada, and Dolce & Gabbana's catwalks. Now we're making it even easier with a crop of ladylike finds that all come in under budget. Whether it's a flash of garden-variety print you're after or a retro-feeling pleated skirt or bow-tied blouse, we've zeroed in on the season's call to ladylike fits with 30 utterly lovely finds — and nothing over $100. Click on to see and shop the pieces we're loving — and channel Spring's sweetest trend.
There are some trends that are thought to be reserved for tennis, boating, or perfecting your golf swing, but Chloe Moretz squashed those stereotypes, making argyle look street chic after touching down at LAX. The young star paired her navy-and-nude argyle turtleneck with black skinnies and multitexture wedges, then layered on a charcoal leather jacket for extra cool. She carried her travel essentials in two leather shoulder bags — a brown messenger and a black Miu Miu — while shading her peepers with black circle sunnies. Snag Chloe's downtown hip with a similar argyle sweater and leather jacket, or go classic by wearing your argyle with a white button-down, cuffed denim, and boat shoes.
Let me start by saying that ruffled miniskirts aren't everybody's cup of tea, but if they are yours, then let former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell be your inspiration. The singer attended an event in London wearing an outfit that manages to be equal parts girlie and edgy. Geri started up top with a black turtleneck, which she wore under a black leather motorcycle-style jacket. She then added a major dose of femininity to her tough upper body by sporting a silver metallic ruffled tiered miniskirt. The bad-girl vibe continued via black ankle booties and a studded black satchel. Now, if ruffled skirts conjure up too many traumatic childhood memories, fret not, you can just as easily mimic Geri's outfit with a moody floral skirt, sweet crochet skirt, or punchy A-line miniskirt. Just as long as you balance super girlie with major tough, you'll nail the look.
Brian Atwood on Living With His BFF Melissa McCarthy, the Power of the Red Carpet, and What Makes a Woman Sexy
FabSugar: What was the inspiration behind your beautiful new handbag collection?
Brian Atwood: It was about being surrounded by amazing women, seeing what their needs were. It was about taking that DNA and excitement from what I put into my shoes into a bag and thinking what would that bag look like, how do we make it cool, gorgeous, and showstopping? It's only the beginning, I'm having so much fun.
FS: What are some of your most memorable red-carpet moments?
BA: The first red carpet I had was with Debra Messing at the 2002 SAG Awards. I had no idea, I think she bought them, and someone told me she was wearing my shoes. That's when you really understand the power of the red carpet; it was pretty amazing. Cameron Diaz also wore [my shoes] at the Oscars with a dress which was short in front and long in back. I thought that was perfect. And now we have the shoe cam, I love the shoe cam!
Rihanna and Brooklyn Decker posed pretty at the London photocall for their new movie Battleship. While it appears that the dresses they picked — Rihanna in Alexander Wang, Brooklyn in Stella McCartney — are vastly different, upon closer inspection, they share one sexy detail. Both frocks have exaggerated halter necklines that show off their beautiful shoulders. Notice how each cut caves into the center of their chests, revealing parts of their decolletage. It's a small detail, but one that can work major wonders. First, it can give the illusion of curves, plus it can also offer subtle sexiness, especially when the hemline of the dress is longer. Inspired by Rihanna and Brooklyn, we tracked down a handful of halter dresses with similar cuts, so shop your favorites below.
