Stella McCartney always attracts a fashionable crowd, and last night, celebrities including Anne Hathaway and Solange Knowles stepped out in the designer du jour to celebrate the Resort 2013 collection. Stella showed off her creations at a chic garden party in NYC, where models clad in her newest designs played retro games and danced to music. Take a look at Stella McCartney's latest line in today's Fab Flash!
While heading into LAX airport, Miranda Kerr strutted her long limbs in a pair of must-have Summer trousers: Joie's blue ikat-print wide-leg pants ($274). We love that she kept the rest of the outfit simple via a white tank, a black blazer, peep-toe Christian Louboutins, oversized round sunglasses, and a matching blue Yves Saint Laurent travel-size bag — here it is in other colors ($2,150). While these pants don't seem versatile at first, they can indeed be worn in many ways: with a crop top for a resort feel, with flat sandals and a denim jacket, with a neon-yellow tank for an extra pop of color, with a white blazer at the office, and so many other ways. If the blue color isn't your style, it also comes in black with beige. Snatch it now before it's gone and style it up all Summer long!
Rihanna is no stranger to fashion-forward styles, but the singer really turned heads while shopping in NYC when she worked a soft pink American Apparel lace bandeau top ($18), a pink pleated Topshop skirt, black high-top Converse ($50), and a mini Céline tote. The midriff-baring starlet accessorized her ballet-meets-street style with oversized round Karen Walker shades ($250), a few necklaces, and diamond stud earrings, then layered on a two-tone sweatshirt. Style Rihanna's exact top, shoes, and shades with a flirty pleated skirt and laid-back hoodie to re-create this daring look.
We caught up with the lovely Emma Stone over the weekend, where she dished on her personal style, her fashion in The Amazing Spider-Man, and her amazing stylist. We've been really impressed with Emma's red-carpet fashions this year — especially her cream Narciso Rodriguez gown at the Tony Awards, and her peplum getup at the MTV Movie Awards. Watch today's Fab Flash to hear more from Emma.
Cobalt blue is one of the hottest colors right now — it's even made its way onto Hollywood's favorite blazers — and now celebrities are starting a love affair with cobalt in leather form. Julianne Hough wore a fabulous cobalt leather dress by Milly with B Brian Atwood peep-toes at the Rock of Ages premiere, Kristen Stewart sported a cobalt Balenciaga skirt at the 2012 CFDA Awards, and Miranda Cosgrove donned this cobalt leather cutout minidress by Porter Grey ($462, originally $660) at the 2012 Kids' Choice Awards. If you love leather and you love cobalt, why not combine them for an even stronger fashionable impact? Shop our favorite cobalt leather pieces below.
We all have tricks up our sleeve for outsmarting dating obstacles; we've picked them up from best friends, older sisters, and even our favorite movie characters. Take Legally Blonde's Elle Woods's dating rules for example: always leave him wanting more, wait at least seven minutes to respond to his text message, and cry to your manicurist — not your crush. When Elle wanted to win her ex-boyfriend back, she didn't just get even — she got ahead. Elle outsmarted her classmates by studying her toned butt off, the courtroom by utilizing her hair-care knowledge, and her ex by realizing she didn't need him to make her happy.
Channel your inner starlet by outsmarting acne with the confidence that comes from clearer skin. Try Neutrogena's new All-In-1 Acne Control line, which clears up past, present, and future breakouts. Made with naturally derived soy and vitamin A, All-in-1 Acne Control fades the look of past acne marks by evening skin tone and speeding up surface skin exfoliation. All-in-1 Acne Control also contains salcyclic acid, the dermatologist-recommended ingredient that powerfully clears present breakouts and helps prevent future blemishes. Genius.
A trip to Jennifer Fisher's Soho studio is like a trip to Candy Land — and the designer, herself, is like your fairy godmother, albeit the kind that wields amazingly edgy and awesome studded gold cuffs and jeweled skull cocktail rings instead of sweets. If you haven't yet heard of the insanely talented jewelry designer — whose celebrity clientele reads like a who's who of Hollywood and includes A-listers like Jennifer Aniston, Charlize Theron, Miranda Kerr, and Sheryl Crow (who just sported Fisher's jewels at the Tonys) — consider this your formal introduction. Fisher welcomed us into her studio with open arms – then opened up the jewelry cases, giving us free reign to try on her cool-girl collection and revealing just how she began her career as one of the hottest up-and-coming designers in her field. Read on to get to know our latest designer crush and her gorgeous collection of baubles.
FabSugar: How did you get started designing jewelry?
Jennifer Fisher: I was a wardrobe stylist for film and TV before I made my first piece. I ended up being diagnosed with a really rare sarcoma in 1998, and I was dating my husband here in NY and flying back and forth from NY to LA, working on jobs and going through chemotherapy at the same time for this tumor. Work saved me. After we got married, we wanted to have a child, but my oncologist didn't want me to . . . Long story short, it was a really long journey to get to have my son.
When he was born, I wanted something cool to wear with his name on it, and there was nothing out there. It was all very generic, and I didn't want to look like everybody else. I wanted something that felt heavier and edgier and had some grit to it and some substance.
So I went out and sourced how to make these tags and started making them, just with his full name on a long chain, and people started stopping me on the street and asking me to make them, and that's sort of how it started. And then other pieces, oh, you know, 'Will you make me this?' And it just started growing into 1,000 different options of charms now.
FS: Do you have a specific girl in mind when you're designing?
JF: No, it's funny — I don't design seasonally, although I'm starting to sort of have to, now that I'm in stores. I started designing wanting something sort of different, so in designing pieces, I sort of go for what I feel like wearing. I think trying to worry about what everyone else is doing sets you up for failure. It's not really designing for someone in mind so much, but more what I want to wear that week or that day.
Someone always says to me, 'What season is this from?' But I wanted pieces you would wear in Fall and Summer, and pieces you don't get sick of after a year. I try not to be too trendy, and that's why I don't work with stones too much or with color. I really like the metal base because I feel like it's timeless.
FS: What's up next for Jennifer Fisher?
JF: I'm working on these larger statement things and working toward more earrings — I'm really into earrings right now! – more heavy necklaces, because that's the one thing that's lacking. I was so into bracelets when I started the line that now I want to go into earrings more. It was really bracelets and rings to begin with, and now I want to do big necklaces, charm bracelets on a really heavy level. It's fun! I'm also working on a collaboration, but it's not finalized yet.
It's fun to grow and to see what this has turned into from this little thing. It's fun to create what you want to create and to have people on the street that I don't know wearing it — that's the most amazing thing in the world.
FS: If you weren't a jewelry designer, what would you be?
JF: Growing up I always wanted to be a plastic surgeon. I have such a crazy, type-A, detail-oriented personality that that's something that I would love to do.

Alexa Chung stepped out in style at the Scottish Fashion Awards wearing a gorgeous ensemble from Christopher Kane. Not only is her ladylike look perfect for the red carpet, but what we really love about it is that it's equally ideal for a chic day at the office.

Read below for our quick styling tips to getting this look right, then shop our similar picks below.
- Make sure to choose a more fitted blouse and sleeveless dress for a streamlined, not bulky, look.
- If your office environment allows it, add extra interest to your look with a jeweled collar or sleeve detail.
