For its September issue, Angeleno magazine featured Anna Kendrick as its glamorous cover girl. We got a chance to catch up with the talented actress at a dinner at Scarpetta in Beverly Hills celebrating the issue, and she dished all about her personal style — she has four words for it — her stylist, favorite and most-hated trends, and favorite designers. At the end we played a fun little fashion game with her where we asked her for her snap judgments for everything from flats vs. heels to leather vs. lace. Read our fashion chat now, then shop the widget below to get her look.
CelebStyle: How would you describe your personal style?
Anna Kendrick: Considered, understated, casual, pretty.
CS: Who's your stylist and how does the styling process typically go?
AK: My stylist is Neil Rodgers. We typically discuss upcoming events, swap images on looks we both like. Neil brings over looks for a try on and fitting with our seamstress Lourdes. Then once we've decided on a dress we then commence the search for the perfect shoes, jewelry, and clutch, and finally swap hair and makeup references for the look.
CS: What are some fashion trends you particularly love and hate?
AK: Love the new pointed toe, hate printed jeans.

While taking a stroll with her young daughter around her neighborhood in NYC, Sarah Jessica Parker showed off the perfect Fall dress: a Kirna Zabete for Target tweed and faux leather shift ($45). Then, true to her experimental style, she added a major pop of color and coziness via a chunky teal knit cardigan. Black leather booties, a black satchel, and her signature wrap sunglasses completed her transitional outfit. To get Sarah Jessica's latest chic look for Fall, buy her exact inexpensive dress, this Milly wool and leather dress ($375) or this Michael Michael Kors leather and ponte dress ($112, originally $225), then pair it with an equally bright cardigan. Add black tights or leggings if the weather gets too chilly.
Elizabeth Olsen donned a sleek black-and-white look — a white Topshop blazer ($130) and black leather ASOS pencil skirt ($156) — while promoting her new movie Liberal Arts in London. She styled her chic two-tone pairing with black ankle-strap sandals and a chunky onyx watch. Re-create Elizabeth's edgy-slash-ladylike ensemble with her exact white blazer and leather skirt along with a simple black tee and black sandals or swap her top for this contrast-collar Equipment blouse and black pumps for the office.
Our tailored staples are getting a candy-colored wash for Spring. Pringle of Scotland kept it simple in silhouettes but told a vibrant color story with primaries and pastels (and sweet side-swept ponytails and red lips) indicative of a retro girl. Pullovers and cardigans were reworked in cobalt and a splash of marigold, just as the lineup of slim trousers, pleated skirts, and easy sheath dresses were. What set them apart was the attention to detail — embellishments, even appliques on sheer tunics (worn over pants), asymmetrical hemlines, and a flash of metallic accents that gave the line's polished fare contemporary confidence.
- Trends: Metallics, brights, colorblocking, sheer, dresses over pants.
- Colors: Silver, beige, black, bright yellow, cobalt blue, and fuchsia.
- Key Piece: The metallic and colorblocked trousers were a cooler, contemporary counterpart to the preppier staples.
- Accessories: Colored and metallic pointed-toe pumps, metallic belts.
- Who Should Wear It: This is for the preppy set — we could see the printed miniskirt and black peplum-style top looking sweet on Emma Stone.
It's no secret that printed jeans and chambray shirts have become a Hollywood fashion staple, but there is one label in particular, Current/Elliott, that has celebrities totally obsessed. Sarah Jessica Parker went casual-cool in the label's slouchy boyfriend jeans in NYC, Rachel Roy balanced her bold yellow bottoms with its chambray top, while Rachel Bilson got leggy in the pocket-exposed boyfriend shorts in LA. A slew of other starlets have been spotted donning Current/Elliott's must-have denim, so find out who else has fallen in love with the brand, then shop their looks — including exact pieces — for yourself.
As Polynesian dancers, Andrea Sweet and her mom have always viewed long hair as a powerful part of who they are. So when Mom was diagnosed with breast cancer 10 years ago, they appreciated firsthand the impact that the disease and chemo have on a woman's sense of identity.
That's why Andrea decided to turn the tables on the "hair as power" myth. By choosing to donate more than a foot of her tresses to Pantene's Beautiful Lengths program, she found a way to acknowledge her personal strength every day — while honoring her amazing mom at the same time.
Watch this video for a closer look at Andrea's journey to create a wig for a woman fighting cancer. Then visit the Pantene Beautiful Lengths Facebook page to learn more and find out how you can get involved.

There's something to be said for the looks you can wear every day, but the skin-revealing cuts and leg-revealing slits coming down the runway at NYFW appeal to another styling sense altogether — inspiring the sexiest takes on Spring dressing. With that in mind, we're taking a look back at the most attention-getting dresses from our favorite New York shows — some done up with bombshell, curve-hugging fits, others made sultrier with a thigh-high slit. In any case, this lineup with iterations from Zac Posen (perfect for a flirty date look) to Alexander Wang (a more fashion-forward take on skin-baring) has enough sex appeal to suit every woman. Click on for the head-turners.
Over the weekend Jessica Biel grabbed lunch at West Hollywood restaurant Eveleigh looking retro-chic in a striped Marc Jacobs dress, nude peep-toe booties, and a white structured satchel. Before she headed inside to start noshing, the actress showed off these colorblock cat-eye Fendi sunglasses ($350), which coordinated with her look effortlessly. If you're in the market for a new pair of sunglasses, score Jessica's exact pair to get in on the cat-eye and colorblock trends simultaneously. They also come in black and brown as well as green and brown, if you prefer a more classic look.
