Pregnant beauties Sienna Miller and Vanessa Minnillo were both recently spotted wearing must-have pieces that are available to buy . . . and you don't have to be knocked up to wear them! While strolling the streets of NYC, Sienna carried Diane von Furstenberg's mini Harper bag in neon yellow ($295) over her neutral ensemble. Then in LA, Vanessa sported an Ella Moss asymmetrical striped maxi dress ($158) with wedge sandals. What's great about these pieces is that they can be worn many ways and in many weathers. Sienna's neon bag would spice up an all-black Winter ensemble just as easily as it would add pop to a floral sundress. And Vanessa's maxi would look equally smashing with a pair of high-heel booties and a circle scarf. If you dig these pieces, be sure to add them to your mix for year-round stylishness.

Elizabeth Olsen has already made her mark as one to watch with her standout role in Martha Marcy May Marlene and as a mega style setter on and off the red carpet. Now she is out and about promoting her next movie, Silent House, and again delivering some perfectly styled outfits that we can't wait to emulate. Accordingly, in today's Fab Flash we're highlighting Elizabeth's luxe, velvet jacket and trouser suit by The Row, which she expertly paired with snakeskin pumps. On Allison McNamara: Topshop blouse.
Kristen Bell's flirty femme Topshop ensemble was not only perfect for the store's Las Vegas opening, but it's also sure to turn heads at your next Spring soiree. The actress layered a striped sequin top over a white fringe Topshop dress, then added extra pizazz with a pair of cutout sandals. A statement Topshop necklace lent a bit of bling, while her sherbert nail polish complemented her pastel palette. Take a cue from Kristen by fusing an embellished striped top with a textured white skirt, or try a black feather skirt with black pumps for an evening affair.

Besides being the star of Hart of Dixie, Rachel Bilson is also an official style guru. She's not only involved in the fabulous shoe ecommerce site ShoeMint, but she's also the style director of Sunglass Hut. Lucky Angelenos will have a chance to meet Rachel on Monday, March 12, at the Sunglass Hut on 3rd Street in Santa Monica from 4 to 7 p.m. "Monday's event will be really fun!" Rachel told us. "It's all about our favorite things: mine, and the ones of my fans — from my favorite go-to pair of sunglasses to my favorite color, my favorite sweet, and vacation spots. I'll share what I think the must-have sunglass trends for Spring are, and help people pick out their new shades." But before you jet off to mingle with Rachel, find out everything she shared about sunglasses, including her favorite brands, tips for various face shapes, and how many she owns!
CelebStyle: What type of sunglasses do you personally tend to gravitate toward?
Rachel Bilson: I personally love the Ray-Ban Wayfarer. They are hip and cool, but also a classic — a modern trend, but a retro throwback. I just love them and wear them all the time!
CS: If you had to guess, how many sunglasses would you say you've owned in your life?
RB: That's a tough one! I would almost be embarrassed to say how many glasses I have had because they are my ultimate accessory and complete any outfit. I also live in LA, where sunnies are necessary. I definitely have had more than 50 pairs. I love Chanel, Burberry, Tory Burch, and of course Ray-Ban.

Jessica Alba made leather and lace look sweet-cum-sexy in a Dolce & Gabbana ensemble she wore in Santa Monica. Her lace blouse, leather Dolce & Gabbana skirt, and suede Christian Louboutin pumps oozed sophistication, while a fitted black blazer and tights added extra warmth. The actress completed her outfit with a black leather tote, Tory Burch sunglasses, and red nail polish for a much-needed pop of color. Re-create this Parisian-chic pairing for your next date night by styling a lace blouse with a leather skirt, a black blazer, and suede pumps.
It's safe to assume that Julianne Moore has a deep love affair with green. And rightfully so because she looks smashing in it! The actress carried a big green bag at NYFW, a green clutch with her black-and-white Lanvin, and now she was spotted in a green Tom Ford dress in Washington DC. What makes this look so special is that it mixes two shades of the bold hue. But since it would be a hard one to pull off off the red carpet, we've created an inspired casual outfit that's more appropriate for everyday life. And it's timely with St. Patrick's Day around the corner. Start with a light-colored green top, like the silky one we've handpicked, and pair it with darker green pants. Finish off with gold footwear — heels or flats, take your pick — and a matching gold bag. This way you get Julianne's gorgeous two-tone look without ever having to step on the red carpet.
