She stunned in a cutout-infused Prabal Gurung number, complete with a dramatic train. Anne Hathaway wowed in shimmery metallic Oscar de la Renta, while Marion Cotillard went bold in a floral-appliqué fit-and-flare dress by Zuhair Murad. Watch on for all the scoop!

No rest for the weary, or in this case, the high-profile Hollywood set. This afternoon, the likes of Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence attended the AFI Awards in Beverly Hills in considerably less-formal wares. Although, don't get us wrong — these midday outfits were by no means boring. With no red carpet in sight, it was more about appealing to a daytime-chic sensibility than it was to an evening couture dress code, and there was no shortage of A-listers to glean this kind of low-key glamour from. Jennifer is proving a real Prabal Gurung fanatic, spotted in her second Pre-Fall '13 creation by the designer in just 24 hours. Anne Hathaway covered up a brightly floral-printed Oscar de la Renta dress with a black ruffled-hem jacket, and Lena Dunham kept it sweet and simple in a dark purple Zac Posen fit-and-flare number. Add to the mix Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke (yes, she is a brunette) in a cream-colored brocade dress and Mad Men's Jessica Paré's citron-hued Roksanda Ilincic sheath, and you've got a well-rounded crew of stylish actresses on hand. From colorful neon tweed to darker feminine silhouettes, now's the time to vote on who did it best.
See the two biggest trends from the Critics' Choice Awards right here: cutouts and embellishments! Jennifer Lawrence, Nina Dobrev, and Jaime King are just a few of the stylish stars who went for cutouts, while Anne Hathaway and Elle Fanning lit up the night with some serious sparkle. Watch today's trend report for all the details — just click play. On Allison McNamara: Club Monaco dress, House of Lavande bracelet.
Even though award season has just begun, it's safe to say that Jennifer Lawrence is already on a roll. The Silver Linings Playbook and Hunger Games star topped our best-dressed list at last night's Critics' Choice Awards in her black peplum Prabal Gurung Pre-Fall 2013 gown, and she dipped into the collection once again for the AFI Awards in Beverly Hills this afternoon. Quite frankly, we're obsessed with Jennifer's recent red-carpet looks — this metallic, neon tweed dress is just another amazing ensemble for us to pore over — and we can't wait to see what she serves up at the Golden Globes this Sunday. Click through now to see Jennifer's feminine, flirty AFI look from all angles.
Thanks to award season's kickoff parties and other exclusive events this week, we were inspired by a slew of noteworthy celebrity styles. Solange Knowles satisfied our print-on-print craving donning a geometric Just Cavalli suit in NYC, Anne Hathaway's all-black Saint Laurent suit pairing proved all black is always a chic choice, while Emma Stone turned up the heat in a fiery Lanvin dress in LA. Check out more outstanding looks from this week, then shop similar pieces to start your new year in style.
Not that we don't generally want to look like Miranda Kerr every day of the week, but her latest look has Saturday written all over it — and we intend to steal it. We're usually looking for something that's closer to chic than sweatpants on the spectrum of weekend style, all without sacrificing our right to feel a little more laid-back. And Miranda pretty much met all of our needs with just one look (yes, she's that good). She kept it simple with jeans, catered to Winter weather with a cozy knit (if you're in need of extra layers, just grab your favorite anorak), and managed to cleverly upgrade the whole ensemble with just a flash of print on her totally walkable flats. Can we talk about those killer Miu Miu shades? It's the perfect I-look-polished-and-cool-without-trying-too-hard mix — and it's yours to shop below.Clockwise from top left: Miu Miu Noir Catwalk Sunglasses ($390), Tommy Hilfiger Short Sleeve T-Shirt ($49), J Brand 620 Power Stretch Mid-Rise Legging Style Jeans ($180), Vaneli Arlen Calf Hair Printed Loafers ($87, originally $145), Express Skinny Leather Belt ($30), See by Chloé Chunky-Knit Cardigan ($525)
If you've been wrapped up in award season, we can hardly blame you, but we're also here to shed a little light on the ensembles you didn't see at the People's Choice or Critics' Choice Awards (or on Kerry Washington) and probably should. This week's other best-dressed set is a mix of downtown street style to steal right now, courtesy of Anne Hathaway and a peacoat-clad Katie Holmes, and a more dressed-up crew, too. We spied Nicky Hilton giving us a bright new bit of outerwear to gush over, Rachel Weisz looking perfectly chic (and a little retro) in Bottega Veneta, and Allison Williams stopping by the Late Show in a sweet fit-and-flare Oscar de la Renta dress (that only furthered our girl crush). For the rest, like Jessica Chastain in a posh Dolce & Gabbana coat, just keep clicking.
We know you've got big plans on Sunday — spending the Golden Globes with us, right? — so we're going to make your Monday morning a little bit easier. Or, at the very least, Katie Holmes is. Her latest look was perfectly assembled for work; from the chic slightly cropped blue blazer to the basic black trousers, it's a no-fuss, four-step process that will take the stress out of what you'll be wearing to your 9 a.m. meeting. While Katie styled her white blouse to be a bit more devil-may-care, try a half-tuck (or the full-tuck) instead. Trust us, it's the professional thing to do. As for the sophisticated add-ons, you can keep the chain-strap bag or switch it out for something more laptop-friendly. Then, depending on your office dress code, it may be better to opt for a sleek black pump instead. If you're not a heels-at-work kind of girl, a pair of brogue-inspired flats will do. Lest we forget her gorgeous gold drop earrings, these dainty accessories offer up a bit of daytime sparkle, but not to fear, it's not the type of flair that causes a workplace distraction. Got all that? See you on Sunday!
Straight off a night of all-out glamour at the Critics' Choice Awards, we're rehashing the night's big winners (as if we could love Ben Affleck or Jennifer Lawrence any more) and still drooling over the most glamorous accessories. Award season obviously brings out the big guns when it comes to jewels, bags, and heels, and last night was no exception with Harry Winston, Chopard, Brian Atwood, and Jimmy Choo (to name a few) accompanying our favorite looks down the red carpet. Some, like Naomi Watts's Irene Neuwirth earrings, offset their dresses perfectly, while others, like Leslie Mann's pink Tiffany clutch, played right into the gown's pretty color palette. In every case, we can hardly imagine what these ensembles would be without their high-impact add-ons. Click on to get up close and personal with the night's best accessories right here.
