Anne Hathaway sealed her globe-trotting style chops working a tweed Dolce & Gabbana jacket ($553, originally $1,675), black crocodile Stella McCartney pumps ($625), and clear Tory Burch shades ($150) while promoting her new flick The Dark Knight Rises in London. Her black crochet top and olive skinny jeans were the perfect canvas for her textured topper, while her diamond solitaire pendant and leather watch injected shine into her classic style. Snag Anne's exact jacket, pumps, and sunglasses to work with a black top and olive jeans, or pair her accessories with a black sheath for a posh night out.
As unsavory as it is to have to get dressed in 90-degree heat, you still have to pull your sartorial weight at work, right? Since it's unlikely that you'll be able to get away with what you really want to wear in these temperatures — like a crop top and a bikini — at the office, you should have a handful of work-appropriate pieces that will look professional and put-together while keeping you cool. Here are some important things to keep in mind:
- Stay away from silk and satin. Not only do they show off sweat marks, but they have a tendency to stick to you, too. Opt for light, breathable fabrics like cotton, rayon, and linen.
- A 100-degree day is not the time to wear your clingiest dress. Instead, err on the side of floaty and breezy, like a flowy top or loose dress that won't cling to your skin and make you even hotter.
- Break out the brights. Bright-colored clothing will help with the melt factor because they reflect light and heat. The same goes for white — just be on the lookout for sweat stains.

Anne Hathaway gave us a gorgeous white gown in NYC, and now she's giving us another soft shade to gush over. For the London premiere, Anne selected a fully embellished gold gown by Gucci, complete with a floral-trimmed neckline. She let her pixie cut take center stage, and punched up her look with a pink lip. Watch today's Fab Flash to see more outfits from Anne and let us know what you think in the comment section below. On Allison McNamara: H&M top, H&M necklace.
We've taken a front-row seat to Miranda Kerr's flawless Summer street style, and while we can certainly wax poetic on the subject, today we're here to talk sandals. Her brightly printed Balenciaga platform sandals, to be exact. Two words: we're obsessed. The eye-catching pattern, in a bold color (naturally), makes this shoe a front-runner for any occasion — and as Miranda proves, its quirky appeal punches up everything from a coral-cutout A.L.C dress to laid-back Isabel Marant denim shorts. Unfortunately, these must-have shoes date back to Balenciaga's Spring 2011 collection, which makes them a little bit tougher to get a hold of. In lieu of snagging the exact pair, we've culled a worthy lineup of colorfully enhanced sandals worth a spin. So, next time you need an outfit pick-me-up, add a pair of printed statement sandals á la Miranda to the mix. Chances are, you'll have a few passersby doing double takes.
Kourtney Kardashian has a son Mason, but ever since she gave birth to her second child, Penelope, proud aunts Kim and Khloe have been spotted wearing matching personalized nameplate necklaces by Jennifer Meyer with the message "Mason loves Penelope" on them. If you're willing to spend some money, you too can get your own Jennifer Meyer personalized nameplate necklace ($1,085) just like Kim and Khloe. While that kind of price tag might be hard to drop at once, it would make a really sweet gift for a friend's birthday or bridal shower if a bunch of people pitch in. Or if you want one, add it to your birthday or holiday wish list. As you can see from the way Kim and Khloe wear their nameplate necklaces, it looks great layered with other gold pieces, too.
Celebrities love their sunglasses for obvious reasons: they not only shield their eyes from the sun, but also from the paparazzi. The latest celebrity sunglasses trend that's been permeating Hollywood is thick-rimmed shades. Lauren Conrad wore a black pair by Emmanuelle Khanh with a nude silk blouse, Miley Cyrus has been sporting her House of Harlow Chelsea sunglasses ($139) nonstop, especially after working out, and Nicole Richie has been spotted with her House of Harlow Dancer sunglasses ($143) countless times. If you've been on the hunt for a new pair of sunglasses, consider hopping on the thick-rimmed trend by shopping our favorites, including Miley and Nicole's exact pairs, below.
We all know that Miranda Kerr is the queen of stellar street style and the model mom didn't disappoint working a striped tee, suede Isabel Marant high-top sneakers, and these luxurious Linda Farrow python sunglasses ($760) in NYC. Miranda paired her casual topper with true blue skinny jeans, then accessorized with her black Céline bag, multiple necklaces, and a few rings. Re-create her casual-cool ensemble by working a striped tee and skinny jeans with high-top sneakers, then finish off with her exact shades or try these retro snake American Apparel sunglasses ($20) for a budget-friendly version of her wild eyewear.
No matter the season, red dresses are the chicest way to stand out from a crowd. Just look at Kyra Sedgwick popping against the NYC backdrop, Lana Del Rey performing in a flirty red bubble dress, and Dita Von Teese looking superbly sophisticated in a red Roland Mouret number. And the great thing is that you can pick the style that matches your personality: square-neck, plunging, poufy, fitted, mini, maxi, and so on. First check out seven celebs wearing various fabulous red dresses, then shop the ones that fit your aesthetic.
We got another dose of candid celebrity style on social media this week. Chrissy Teigen suited up for a meal of lobster, while Beyoncé stayed cool and casual while biking around. Rebecca Minkoff sported an amazing pair of printed pants for a Project Runway party, and gave us yet another reason to invest in the trend. Fashionable friends Nicole Richie, Lauren Santo Domingo, Jessica Hart, and Derek Blasberg also partied together, making a very stylish foursome.
