Italian designers are known for their over-the-top designs, and in that regard, the Spring 2013 runways did not disappoint. For next season, high-shine sequins were out in full effect, covering everything from tops to pants. Whether you want a hint of sparkle with an embellished dress or want to invest in a high-impact piece — like an amazing sequined jacket — you're definitely going to want to get your hands on some sparkle for next Spring. See what we mean in this Milan Fashion Week trend report. On Allison McNamara: Topshop blazer, T+J Designs necklace.
We saw it coming on the runways this Spring, but Emma Watson just took the dress-over-pants trend for a real-life test-drive at the London screening of her new film, The Perks of Being a Wallflower. A wallflower she certainly is not, as Emma embraced the bold take on layering in a Christian Dior Couture look — a strapless fit-and-flare cocktail dress and a pair of straight-leg black trousers. Sure, the pieces on their own are all classics — right down to her pointed-toe pumps, but together, they become something a little more fashion-forward. Now we want to know, are they better together or would you have liked to see Emma just pick one?
We have our mega slideshow of celebrity must haves that we always add to, but for Fall, we've edited it down to the nine celebrity pieces you must add to your wardrobe for the new season. Shop everything from Gwyneth Paltrow's red boots to Ashley Madekwe's gold drop earrings to Olivia Palermo's cap-toe pumps and way more. Trust us, they'll add major spunk to all your Fall looks.
The loafer — specifically the sleek, refined smoking slipper silhouette — is making some serious moves on the ballet flats' territory. There's not much explaining to do here: just let the most recent batch of star-studded style sightings bear witness to its trendy takeover. Yes, there was a time when we only associated chic smoking slippers with the likes of playboy Hugh Hefner (complete with silky robe, of course), but now, we're fully embracing its borrowed-from-the-boys likability and, quite frankly, its go-with-everything versatility. Seriously. Whether you own a bold leopard-print iteration or an understated pony-hair version, chances are this shoe will fit the bill of any dress code. The proof is all right here — styled up against the most casual wares and, then again, with the prettiest peplum top and plaid bottoms front row at Tibi.

The Fall runways promised us that oxblood would be a major trend this season, but the street style all fashion month long has solidified its status as the hottest hue to have in our closets right now. We hardly need any more convincing than its striking effect in our favorite snaps from Fashion Week — in any iteration, it lends a seasonal richness and feels infinitely more exciting than the usual shades of black or gray. And it's taking over everything from our boots to our dresses, so there's literally a way to incorporate it into any of your Fall looks, no matter where you're headed. We've narrowed it down to the must-have oxblood pieces with major outfit impact, from cozy pullovers to moody leather pants. Click on for 16 ways to wear Fall's favorite color.
Jessica Hart stepped out in NYC, donning an off-duty model style that was equally chic and sporty. The model paired a light pink button-down blouse with white high-top Converse sneakers ($45), an embossed patent leather Louis Vuitton bag ($2,490), and our favorite piece — unexpected black suede leggings. Celebrities have made leather pants the new Hollywood staple, so Jessica's suede bottoms are a refreshing change. Work a colored button-down top with these faux suede Karen Kane leggings ($99), white Converse, and a sleek patent leather bag for a low-key daytime look, or amp it up at night with these lizard-print Alexander Wang pumps ($525) and a statement necklace.
Turbans have been a fashion statement for quite some time now, but we just spotted Kourtney Kardashian wearing a bright blue one with her printed Diane von Furstenberg dress in Miami, so we had to put it out there: would you wear a turban? Eva Mendes also recently wore a black satin turban with her lace Dolce & Gabbana dress, Karolína Kurková matched her gold sequin turban with her Rachel Zoe gown at the 2012 Met Gala, and Margherita Missoni sported a white turban with a beaded orange detail with her plunging printed Missoni gown. Would you wear — or have you worn — a turban like these daring celebs? Cast your vote, then leave a comment below. If your answer is yes, shop our favorite turbans below.
We've been keeping a close eye on Penélope Cruz's styling chops at the San Sebastián Film Festival to promote her new movie, Venuto al Mondo. So far, the gorgeous Spanish actress has been wowing us with her flair for elegant yet sexy choices in the way of fitted lace sheaths, chic knits, and most recently, a stunning red vintage gown by Versace. To finish off her exquisite look, Penélope accessorized with red satin pumps and a red-and-gold minaudière (both by Ferragamo) and sleek side-swept hair. Get an up close and personal look at all of her beautiful ensembles at the San Sebastián Film festival in the slideshow and tell us which Penélope look is your favorite!
