We got a touch of both seasonal elegance — Elisa Sednaoui wore a silky Salvatore Ferragamo pajama-inspired ensemble and Brooklyn Decker opted for a chic white Giambattista Valli minidress — and dressed-down looks thanks to Kate Moss and Minka Kelly. Inside, there's more copycat-inducing inspiration from our favorite style setters — click on for the top 10.

Matthew McConaughey's girl Camila Alves has a bohemian flair that we admire so much. But during a recent TV appearance in Canada, the model-slash-designer traded boho for modern polish, proving she can be a fashion chameleon when she wants to be. Camila started with a printed silk A.L.C. blouse with contrast piping that is totally in line with the latest printed-silk-blouse craze. It's covered up enough to be work appropriate but has a flirty print that would jazz up any weekend ensemble. On bottom Camila wore black cropped tuxedo trousers, which took the look to a whole other slick level. Chunky peep-toe pumps, a long gold necklace, and gold bangles completed her on-air outfit. To get Camila's look off air, shop her exact blouse, as well as similar pieces, below.
Newly pregnant Reese Witherspoon was spotted exiting a friend's house in LA sporting an all-black ensemble consisting of a Rebecca Taylor dress, black cropped cardigan, beaded necklace, ballet flats, and oversized hexagonal shades. But what really made her outfit special, besides her baby bump, was that black-and-yellow Celine tote. Two-tone bags are super fresh at the moment, and while Reese's version is a few seasons old, you can still get the look via other styles and colors. Whether it's a clutch, crossbody, tote, or satchel, pick the two colors you love most, and get a bag that has them both! To get in on the two-tone trend, shop our favorites below.
Ashlee Simpson has mastered the punk-chic look: dark hues, stacked accessories, and, of course, lots of leather. And now she has taken her rockin' aesthetic down under to Australia. While arriving at Sydney airport, Ashlee layered a black blazer over leather pants, then finished off with a pair of black platform wedges and adorable heart sunglasses. Later on, during a shopping excursion, she opted for a green leopard cardigan and mini Chanel clutch. Ashlee styled each ensemble with closet staples — a distressed LnA tee and a bevy of gold necklaces. Shop our picks to mimic Ashlee's too-cool Aussie style.
Didn't get your Olivia Palermo fix from the pages of Elle Ukraine? Us either. Luckily, the fashion It girl and superchic style blogger has kept herself busy, gracing yet another European magazine cover. For the April issue of Marie Claire Spain, Olivia looks gorgeous, tan, and totally reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday as she poses in Spring's prettiest retro glam pieces. The six-page spread, shot by Andrew Yee, includes flirty pastel frocks and romantic separates from the likes of Yves Saint Laurent, Prada, Valentino, and Louis Vuitton. If we weren't already excited to don our own versions of these ladylike wares, this editorial is all the proof we'd need to jump-start our ultrafemme dress obsession. Take a look at the rest of Olivia's Marie Claire Spain appearance and let us know which look you like best.

We might not have the superstar-status budget to shop all of these pieces, but a girl can always window shop, right?

There are many more designer goods to swoon over; just click the slideshow to see, and perhaps shop, our top 10 luxe picks for Spring dreaming right now.
Beyoncé has been quite the eye-catching mama lately. From vibrant pants with sunny pumps to her newest bright NYC look, she's been livening the sidewalks like no other. For her latest outing, the singer tucked a neon pink Michael Kors sweater into a captivating Etro maxi skirt, then balanced the look with embellished pumps and black accessories — fedora, patent crossbody bag, and Linda Farrow for The Row circle shades. Her hot-pink lip, hoop earrings, and bevy of bangles complemented her head-turning ensemble. Steal this standout look by styling an equally bright sweater with a loud maxi skirt — here's one we love — then finish it off with black accessories and a bold lip like Beyoncé. For a more casual vibe, pair your maxi with a black tank and flat sandals.
Celebs have been blooming in floral jeans lately. Amanda Seyfried is digging subtle florals, while Minka Kelly is all over the colorful version. On a recent stroll in LA, Amanda paired her J Brand floral jeans with a gray J Brand sweatshirt and a black studded Alexander Wang bag. Minka was spotted in Australia wearing her bright Dolce & Gabbana florals with a J Brand leather tee and equally bold accessories. Inspired by these two beauties, we hunted down the top six floral jeans out there right now. Step inside to get a closer look at Amanda and Minka and to shop our picks.
