Not only did Beyoncé put the kibosh on the National Anthem lip-synching controversy — yes, she did sing along to a prerecorded track, but today's stunning live performance put the nay-saying to rest — but she also looked phenomenal while doing so. This afternoon, the brunette stunner fielded questions at a Super Bowl halftime press conference in New Orleans, and to do so, she worked a gorgeous long-sleeved, leg-lengthening, back-baring little white dress by Olcay Gulsen. Not letting any detail go to waste, she also sported sheer-mesh polka-dotted pumps, supplying a double dose of sexy-meets-sweet style. As if her dress weren't chic enough, Beyoncé took her look to new heights via cascading side-swept curls, a gold-foil manicure, and a few dainty jewels. If these looks are a preview of what's in store for (what promises to be) an epic Super Bowl halftime, we can't wait to see what noteworthy ensemble she chooses for the big game.
But wait, there's more. Beyoncé gave us an encore with a second press-conference outfit. She stepped out backstage in another dazzling number: a bright orange knee-length Antonio Berardi dress that she partnered with gold-studded Jimmy Choo pumps.
It all checks out — Louis Vuitton's mod, checkered pattern is everywhere for Spring and Summer. Kristen Stewart, Jessica Alba, and Miranda Kerr are just a few of the stars who have slipped into the designer's checker-print pieces for the red carpet. Whether it's a full checked dress or a printed shoe or bag, each is making a compelling case to get in on the trend. Just watch today's Fashion Flash for all the details. On Allison McNamara: Armani Exchange dress, Stella and Bow necklace.
A first glimpse of Zimmermann's Spring '13 lineup is almost enough to make us ditch our Winter coats and reach for one of the collection's breezy printed dresses — almost. Since the temperatures won't allow for that kind of wardrobe changeup, we'll live vicariously through the label's new In Concert collection lookbook (and hope for an early Spring). Thanks to designer Nicky Zimmermann's eye for beautiful prints, feminine cuts, and soft leather, we have a lot to look forward to. In fact, the mix of tomboy and boho — right down to the easy styling, finished with ankle boots and floppy hats — is the kind of carefree, cool-girl glamour you might employ on the concert circuit in just a few short months (Coachella, anyone?). Though some of it might be just as well suited to your dressier events, like a polished shorts suit, floral sheaths, or even this sheer little number if you're looking to channel Lea Michele's sexy red-carpet appearance. Flip through every awesome look right here — then get ready to shop when the collection debuts Feb. 4.
Luxurious but not exactly affordable is probably the most obvious — and most accurate — way to describe Mary-Kate and Ashely Olsen's collection of handbags for The Row, which includes a $39,000 backpack (that we've only ever seen the designers themselves wearing). Now the sister duo is looking to change all of that with the launch of a bag collection for their Elizabeth and James label. The major difference in this endeavor is the price point. While The Row skews towards the high end of the market, Elizabeth and James is the designers' more accessible brand, and Mary-Kate and Ashley have crafted these bags with that focus. "The price point is below [Alexander] Wang and [Phillip] Lim but above Marc [Jacobs] and Tory [Burch]." "And Rebecca Minkoff," Ashley interrupted. "We wanted these bags to be affordable." That means the full range of bags — which includes satchels, shoppers, messenger bags, backpacks, hobo bags, crossbody bags, clutches, pouches, and wallets — will stay between $125 to $395 for small leather goods and $395 to $625 for bags. Not bad considering this duo won't be sacrificing quality to meet their lower price points. Looking to Italian suede and leather, calf hair, lambskin, and strong hardware, these accessories will be getting the signature Olsen design treatment without the exclusive, Olsen-only price tag. Stay tuned: the bags hit stores this July.
From Chrissy Teigen and Miranda Kerr's beach vacations to Derek Blasberg's Couture Week photos (not to mention Doutzen Kroes's giant wheel of cheese), it was an envy-inducing week in the world of celebrity social media snaps. We also caught a glimpse of Joan Smalls working the camera for Prabal Gurung's Spring campaign, Coco Rocha working a new Sass & Bide cape, and Sophia Bush smack-dab in the middle of a bang emergency.
The beginning of 2013 means getting a fresh start on that fitness resolution while still finding time to indulge in some warm treats. We shared an easy at-home workout, which can keep you out of the January gym madness. Plus, we wanted you to keep track of the minutes you spent feeling the burn with a cute watch. Indulge your lips, which are still feeling the Winter weather, with a luxurious balm. We have our favorite way to spruce up your iPhone, and try a guilt-free snack, too.

While promoting her new movie Der Naechste, Bitte! in Berlin, Diane Kruger reminded us why she's a consummate styler, and it had everything to do with her statement Stella McCartney floral-print silk pants ($925). The actress completed her outfit with a black Stella McCartney tuxedo vest (similar version here), black pointy pumps, and a crisp white watch.
We love the juxtaposition of her structured top against a more relaxed-pant silhouette — it has "chic" written all over it. And it looks like even Diane is jumping on the black-and-white trend bandwagon, and her head-to-toe look is a prime example why. While we can't deny that the actress's two-toned add-ons were sleek — significant in polishing off her look — there's no doubt (in our minds) that her floral pants were the real showstoppers. The best part? They're versatile, too. With the right attention to detail, you can dress them up or down. For a more casual approach, mimic Diane's latest ensemble, but switch out the vest for a knit sweater, and her heels for a pair of sneakers. Then come Spring, punch the outfit up with a bright t-shirt and your favorite sandals. All you need to do is snag your own pair of Diane-inspired statement pants — or shop the exact pair — with a little help from our editors' picks below.
Starting next Monday, your (and our) online shopping outlook will be enhanced tenfold. The reason? Barneys New York is launching a permanent barneyswarehouse.com website. As in, what once was a biannual all-out designer markdown battle of wits, strength, and style savvy will soon be available to us 24/7. Now, no matter where you live (right now there are only 13 outlet stores nationwide), you'll be privy to past-season sale items, discounted to up to 75 percent. "I certainly think this could be our biggest store," said Barneys Executive Vice President Daniella Vitale. And with all this talk of "liquidation" ecommerce, and the obvious excitement that comes with the iconic retailer's move into the digital outlet space, we can't help but hope that this factory fever (J.Crew announced its full-time J.Crew Factory site back in October) continues to grow. Do you think the burgeoning trend of online markdown oases actually prompts us to shop more? Or is it merely the idea of having a more affordable (and accessible) option that makes this news all the sweeter? Weigh in below.
