Revenge star Emily VanCamp and boyfriend Joshua Bowman soaked up the sun together at Monaco's Beach Club Sea Lounge, and while Josh's body is ripped, we can't stop staring at Emily's fabulous printed triangle bikini by Vix Swimwear. The cut is sexy, the print is exotic, and the beaded detailing on the top and bottom gives it a much-needed pop of color. Plus it's totally in line with Hollywood's love affair with triangle bikinis. To add Emily's exact swimsuit to your Summer rotation, shop the top ($92) in a small, medium, large, or D-cup and the matching bottom ($92) in medium or large. If you love the print but not the cut, then it's also available in a bandeau version ($86, originally $114).
Our dads are often one of the first sources of grown-up style inspiration in our lives (for better or for worse), and it's always interesting to see how they dabbled with various trends back in the day. Tapered jeans and Hawaiian shirts aside, some of our dads really had it going on when they were young and actually pulled off some of the same styles we see on men today, like boat shoes, Ray-Bans, polo shirts, and hipster-cool hats. In honor of Father's Day, we decided to show off style snaps of some of our own dapper dads, courtesy of our fellow Sugar colleagues. Click through to see them all now, and let us know what's cool (or not so cool) about your dad's way of dress in the comments.
Spring runways were rife with ladylike flared silhouettes from heavy hitters like Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana, and more — now we're honing in on 10 ways to channel the figure-flattering look. These dresses and skirts were made for showing off only our best assets and hiding the areas we're less than thrilled about. Sure, we have a soft spot for sexy body-con clothing, but the fit-and-flare look is practically designed to flatter our shape: it nips in at our smallest point, floats away from our hips, and flatters our stems, showing off their slimmest parts. We can testify: the effect is a universally flattering fit that's feminine and easy to wear off duty or at your desk. We've handpicked 10 of our favorites; just click through to shop.
Resort runways are well underway, and one of our favorites — Salvatore Ferragamo — took over the Louvre in Paris yesterday to showcase its newest designs. In attendance front row were Leighton Meester, Freida Pinto, Karolina Kurkova, and Hilary Swank, who all dressed head to toe in Ferragamo's Fall 2012 collection. Keep watching to see their gorgeous ensembles and Ferragamo's Resort 2013 line. On Allison McNamara: Lia Sophia necklace.

Remember when you found out the adorable little girl from Full House was actually two adorable little girls? Well, if you told us 10 years ago that Michelle Tanner times two would grow up to be fashion designers, CFDA Award winners, and sought-after style setters, we'd probably roll our eyes and give you a Michelle-style "Oh, please!"
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen have not only grown into superstylish, totally talented women, but they're undeniably gorgeous, too. In editorials, they come across as wistful, wide-eyed beauties with a fierce sense of sisterhood, always exuding polish, gentility, and avant-garde glamour. We're celebrating Mary-Kate and Ashley's 26th birthday with a collection of their chicest editorials to date — and while we love them together, we do realize that they are their own separate entities, so we've made sure to include some solo shots, too. Click through to see them all now.
Selena Gomez looked beautiful in a mint blue Versace dress, matching studded belt, and patent pointed Giuseppe Zanotti pumps at an Alliance For Children's Rights event in Hollywood. The on-trend color played up her gorgeous sun-kissed skin and dark locks perfectly, while her matching blue eye shadow and pink nail polish completed the look seamlessly. Channel your inner style star in an icy blue dress, matching studded belt, and sophisticated patent pumps for a polished date-night look or switch things up with a neon wrap belt like this pink Diane von Furstenberg one ($122, originally $175) for a sassier touch.
Christy Turlington is a woman of many talents. She not only was a top supermodel, but is also a wife, mother, dedicated philanthropist, and now a designer. She recently collaborated with Lyric Culture on limited-edition tees and scarves for charity — you can find her designs here. We recently caught up with Christy and chatted all about her style. As a mother, she's naturally busy, but here's how she told us she maintains her personal style: "I try to keep it healthy and simple. My style motto is less is more."
So how has her style changed from her modeling days? "I used to attempt to keep up with everything going on in the fashion world, but it was never my nature to do so," Christy spilled. "I've always been drawn to more classic pieces and silhouettes." As for the go-to pieces she always reaches for? "My Rag & Bone jeans, Isabel Marant, Theodora & Callum scarf, and TOMS shoes when I travel." But when Christy gets dolled up for a night out, she told us her designer of choice is Stella McCartney. To mimic Christy's less-is-more style, shop some of her favorite pieces in the widget below!
Jessica Alba stepped out in Santa Monica, CA, fusing prints, pastels, and neons to perfection, then she balanced her colorful look with a white Gerard Darel crossbody bag — here it is in grey and tan ($315). The actress donned a grey polka-dot blouse by Splendid with cuffed boyfriend jeans and hot pink and yellow neon wedges, then layered on a striped green blazer for extra pizzazz. She finished off her bold style with Lindsay Vallan wrap necklaces, double-finger ring, and orange shades. Re-create Jessica's trendsetting look with a light blazer, polka-dot blouse, boyfriend jeans, and neon wedges for your next daytime adventure.
