Cameron Diaz took a denim-on-denim stroll in NYC with a red Chanel bag on her shoulder, but it's her tan, low-wedge braided Brian Atwood sandals that have us really swooning. Braided sandals are such a Summer staple because they exude a cool nautical vibe, come in various heel heights and styles, and can go with almost anything in your Summer wardrobe. Cameron opted to wear hers with Earnest Sewn denim skinny jeans and a contrasting light-wash denim Levi's jacket, but you can sport your pair with everything from minidresses and maxis to shorts and even your bikini. To add braided sandals to your Summer style repertoire, shop our favorite selections below.
Summer is officially here, and to celebrate, Coach hosted the second annual Summer Party at the High Line, where Chelsea Market was transformed into a giant carnival filled with magicians, jugglers, and tons of fun and games. We got the chance to chat with model Jessica Stam about her warm-weather style as well as her first memories of Coach. Watch today's Fab Flash to hear more from Jessica!
If you were a kid in the '80s and '90s, you most likely owned a pair of Dr. Martens boots, and even more so, you probably stomped around on them like you were the coolest grunge girl in school. Fast forward to present time, and you'll come to notice that grunge is back in full force, and so are Dr. Martens's awesome kicks. Not only is it still pumping out the classic yellow-stitched boots but also a supercute array of more feminine styles in the way of colored oxfords, thinner soles, and our favorite, floral printed boots. We recently took a tour of the Dr. Martens factory on Cobbs Lane and were seriously blown away with the quality and craftsmanship behind every single pair of shoes. There's a reason why those soles are so durable — just click the slideshow to see our behind-the-scenes tour of the Dr. Martens factory now.
When it comes to your jewelry collection, it can be tempting to overload it with billions of baubles (most of which you never end up wearing), but in the grand scheme of things, you really only need the essentials. Focus on a mix of understated pieces in your favorite metals, then add a few standout items that incorporate color and texture — and voilà! You've got a fully formed, fantastic collection of accessories. Click through to see and shop the 10 baubles that every woman should have in her life, then watch our extremely helpful video on how to organize your jewelry collection!

Lorraine Schwartz, Cartier, Neil Lane — these famous jewelers have been providing baubles for Hollywood's hottest leading ladies for years now. But now there's a new player in town, and it's Italian jeweler Pomellato. Everyone from Lea Michele and Cameron Diaz to Leighton Meester and Emily VanCamp has been spotted strutting the red carpet in their exquisite and modern baubles, which include chain-link and rose gold pieces, pink sapphires, and more. Check out all the top stars who have adorned themselves in Pomellato, then shop similar pieces for yourself.

We're excited to bring you the best fashion finds, shopping stories, and style news from one of our favorite sites, Fashionista. Today, they're giving us the scoop on some of the most memorable model-turned-actresses.
Beauty and fame often go hand in hand, so it makes sense that models and actresses seem to be forever trading places.
The latest model to make the jump to acting is Erin Wasson, who we got a first look at in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter today. And she’s following in the footsteps of some of acting’s biggest names, like Milla Jovovich and Cameron Diaz, who got their start as models. But while the model-turned-actress is certainly not a new breed, there seem to have been even more slashes emerging recently: Gemma Ward, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Brooklyn Decker, for instance, have all made the jump. And the new Mad Max movie (Mad Max: Fury Road) is cast almost entirely with models: former model Charlize Theron and more current ones Abbey Lee Kershaw and Huntington-Whitely are all set to star.
And while the model/actress transition is certainly not rare, it can be hard to pull off (see: Cindy Crawford in Fair Game).

At Coach's Summer party in NYC, Dianna Agron stepped out in this beautiful Tracy Reese colorful, retro impressionist dress ($298). The actress was surrounded by a slew of Hollywood beauties, but her bright shift and stunning accessories — strappy sequin Miu Miu sandals, two-tone Coach sunglasses, and an oversized buckled belt — really made her stand out from the crowd.
