New York Fashion Week has officially wrapped, but before we head to London, it's imperative that we highlight some of our most-loved trends from the Big Apple. For Spring '13, it was all about color, and there were four gorgeous shades that stood out on the runways: black, white, pink, and blue. Designer Max Azria (who we're now pretty sure may be psychic) predicted this color scheme when we interviewed him at BCBG, and it continued to be a very popular palette as the week went on. Hear all about the colors that you should be embracing next Spring — as well as which designers showed off the hues in their collections — in this NYFW Trend Report.

Fashion Week's most stylish ensembles are nothing without their accessories. The style set relies heavily on their luxe carryalls, eye-catching baubles, and seriously sexy footwear as much as they do any other wardrobe staple. In fact, sometimes it all comes down to one great detail — a gorgeous bag to contrast worn denim or a stack of bracelets to dress up a basic t-shirt. The proof is all right here as we go accessory stalking at New York Fashion Week. What we saw was a testament to the "it's the little things that count" adage — although oftentimes those little things were major fashion buys, like the covet-worthy Céline luggage tote (which reigned supreme as the fashion insiders' accessory of choice for another season) or the Phillip Lim Pashli (a close second). Get the full accessory recap right here — 99 of our favorite shoe, bag, and bauble snaps.
Fashion Week brought with it a lineup of serious celebrity style, but beyond the front row, there was another world of standout ensembles — whether out and about the city or in another city entirely. From the Toronto Film Fest we got a taste of red-carpet glamour, while on the West Coast, a bevvy of celebs attended to their respective film premieres, and here in NYC — even far from the tents — a crew of style setters like Diane Kruger and Jessica Hart proved that their casual looks were just as chic. Click on for all the major style moments you may have missed (but should definitely see!) in this week's top 10.
Ready to find out our top stars of the week? This week's style standouts were all about ladylike looks. Miranda Kerr was the picture of feminine perfection in a sleeveless Equipment blouse, floral Erdem pencil skirt, and nude Lanvin pumps in Tokyo; Olivia Palermo earned her front-row spot at New York Fashion Week in a knotted Carrie Parry blouse, leather midi skirt, and snakeskin ankle-strap Tibi sandals; and Jessica Alba was crowned the master of unexpected combos in a cropped leather jacket and a yellow plaid Ralph Lauren skirt in NYC. And let's not forget about Kristen Stewart, Solange Knowles, Eva Longoria, Lucy Hale, and Nina Dobrev, who showcased stunning looks of their own. Get a closer look at this week's standouts, see why they were chosen, then shop their looks for yourself.

After many glamorous front-row moments at New York Fashion Week, Kate Bosworth returned to LA with fiancé Michael Polish last night. But just because she took a long flight to get home doesn't mean she sacrificed her cool-girl aesthetic. For her journey, the actress wore loose-fitting silky printed pants by Joie with a sheer black tee, black suede square-heel pumps, and a crystal-embellished Miu Miu bag — shop the blue style here ($1,495). Aviator sunglasses, a black belt, and a delicate pendant necklace completed her airport style. Mimic Kate's casual-chic look by scoring the blue version of her Joie pants ($264) to pair with your basic tee and pumps.
