The week kicked off with Met Gala glamour, and celebs showed no signs off slowing on their style. Aside from Monday night's ultrachic festivities, this week's premieres, parties, and fashionable fetes were occasion enough to draw out the chicest kind of celebrity dressing. We spotted Nina Dobrev bringing bold color on the perfect party dress, Ashley Madekwe working the sophisticated-cool angle in a Zara sheath, and Natalie Portman making a stunning arrival at the New York City Ballet's Spring Gala. Looking for something more casual? Eva Mendes outfitted an effortless take on Summer staples — just click on for all that and more celeb-styling inspiration in this week's top 10.
There are classic stripes, then there are sheer stripes, which celebs are all over these days. Katy Perry just attended a music dinner in Century City wearing a sheer black striped body-con maxi dress with killer studded pumps and a long beaded necklace. Kerry Washington has also gotten in on the sheer-stripes trend, albeit via a superclassy Donna Karan frock. Lauren Conrad also sported sheer stripes in a beachy way during an appearance in Las Vegas. Step inside to which other stars have rocked sheer stripes and to shop the classic-turned-badass trend for yourself.
The NYC Spring Ballet Gala took place at Lincoln Center last evening, and Natalie Portman and Drew Barrymore both attended in gorgeous gowns. Natalie Portman was an honorary cochair for the gala and walked the carpet alongside her choreographer husband, Benjamin Millepied, whom she met while filming Black Swan. Natalie is the face of Christian Dior's fragrance Miss Dior, so it's no surprise she wore the designer head to toe for the evening at the ballet. Drew arrived wearing a white Chanel gown that ever-so-slightly showed off her growing baby bump. Watch today's Fab Flash to get a better look at their beautiful gala gowns. On Allison McNamara: H&M dress.

We love looking to stylish celebs for wardrobe inspiration, and with Summer on the horizon — think beaches, rooftop parties, and days spent in the sun — we're giving you an exclusive look at what some of our top fashion stars are shopping for right now. Our first Summer stylist is So You Think You Can Dance superhost Cat Deeley, who chatted with us about her Summer fashion must haves.

Not only does she have a keen eye for covetable brands like Isabel Marant and Matthew Williamson, but we also love how Cat mixes up her style profile with affordable, high street fashion.

Actress Estella Warren attended a magazine party in Beverly Hills last night clad in a combination we've seriously fallen in love with: an orange frock with white lace sleeves by Christopher Kane! The lace lends sweet daintiness to the orange, while the orange kicks things up a few sassy notches. Together they're the perfect Spring couple. Inspired by Estella's orange-and-white-lace frock, we've put together our very own outfits with white lace and a bold hue. Try a sleeveless orange dress with a white lace cardigan to re-create Estella's look, or pair pink shorts with a white lace tee, a lace skirt with a mint blouse, and a white lace dress with a cobalt blazer for other fun alternatives.

But even if you don't live in Europe, or aren't even visiting soon, that doesn't mean you can't get in on the sharp trend. Step inside to see which fashion insiders have slung their jackets over their shoulders and to shop similar pieces for your next jacket-slinging effect.
