The Golden Globes didn't provide the only red-carpet fodder for the week — in fact, far from it. And it would be remiss of us to not pay proper homage to the noteworthy looks of the week just because they didn't happen to enter the Beverly Hilton last Sunday evening. Among the stylish contenders for our top 10 honors? Birthday girl Kate Moss showed us yet another way to rock a serious leopard coat, and Scarlett Johansson, in an all-black Dolce & Gabbana ensemble, attended the opening of her Broadway show Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Julianne Hough went bold with a neon-orange fit-and-flare dress, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley showed off another (read: printed) Céline luggage tote to covet, and Sarah Jessica Parker donned another urban-chic getup, albeit with a puffer-vest twist. This week's post-Globes style-setter lineup is equal parts red-carpet glamorous and off-duty cool, so get your top 10 inspiration here.

Here to rescue you from the "I have nothing to wear" blues is Mango's latest lineup, filled with covetable pieces to wear now and later. The Spanish retailer's newest January arrivals supplied sleek leather trousers, chic coats, cozy knits, and classic stripes. Meanwhile, the Spring catalog, featuring models Karmen Pedaru, Edita Vilkeviciute, and Malgosia Bela, paid homage to the '90s via bleached denim, cool leather bombers, and an array of slick separates we'd like to work into our 9-to-5 wardrobe right now. Read below for the style tips we culled from Mango, then click on to see the complete lookbook and campaign images.
- For a look that's both professional and chic, pair polished work separates with a tee.
- We love the idea of wearing lighter hues in the Winter. Take note of this perfectly styled look, and pair white jeans with a textural sweater and leather jacket for an outfit that's cozy and cool.
- Instead of wearing the usual LBD for your next party look, opt for a printed suit set instead, like this amazing striped rendition.
Chloë Moretz's airport outfit exhibited the kind of style that we want to emulate every day of the week, and it came courtesy of three chic black pieces. While the lighter scarf, black watch, and round sunglasses provided the polish, we're looking to the darker elements for our main outfit formula. Her boxy black car coat was feminine and sleek and isn't in danger of ever going out of style. Thus, pair this no-fail outerwear staple with a slimming silhouette (skinny jeans or even a not-so-slouchy boyfriend cut will work!) on bottom to keep the integrity of the outfit's clean lines intact. Chloë's black Prada tote may be a bit of a splurge if you plan on following suit, but the lesson to take here is a boxy handbag — in a neutral tone — will never steer you astray. To finish, her ensemble got its youthful twist via black wedge booties. Yes, they're sophisticated, but they definitely feel like a playful footwear option in place of a patent-leather pump or strappy heel. You can pull one, two, or all three of these items into your own wintry wardrobe for a similarly refined effect — the choice is yours. See our shopping picks below.
While running errands around LA (on more than one day in a row), Jennifer Garner showed off her brand-new shoes: these Isabel Marant Basley black suede tassel booties ($600), which also come in camel and white. At first glance, we thought they were high-top sneakers, but upon closer inspection, we realized they're actually a cross between a sneaker and a bootie — genius! While the price tag is rather steep, we think these booties are worth the investment for a few reasons. First, they're by Isabel Marant, so they're automatically cool in our eyes. Second, they look super comfy. And third, they might just be the new shoe trend of the year (stay tuned). Side note: we also love the way Jennifer wore her new shoes, with a boyish blazer, a plaid blouse, skinny jeans, and a white scarf. All in all, it's a head-to-toe outfit win.
Since we're almost about to enter Fashion Month for Fall 2013, it's only fair of us to pay homage to the gorgeous footwear we've seen on the Spring '13 runways. Architectural influences proved to be a huge shoe trend, with designers like Fendi, Matthew Williamson, Rodarte, and more serving up skyscraper-height heels with sculptural shapes and colors. If flats are more your cup of tea, then turn to the runways of Dolce & Gabbana, Victoria Beckham, and Salvatore Ferragamo, who all offered braided and buckled flat sandals for the season ahead. So, enough chitchat — click through now to see over 450 of our favorite kicks from the Spring '13 runways.
As celebs flock to Park City, UT, today (and all the way through Jan. 27) to take in the latest indie films, hang on the slopes, and show off their winterwear prowess at the Sundance Film Festival, we're taking a quick look back at last year's best cold-weather chic moments. Before we catch the first glimpses of this year's starlets, we're breaking down what everyone was wearing in 2012 — a veritable styling gold mine from our favorite style setters. We spotted Kate Bosworth putting her eclectic spin on Winter layers, Kirsten Dunst outfitting a luxe look on the red carpet, and Emma Roberts donning a sweet denim look for a night out. Step inside for our favorite looks — plus more — when you keep clicking.
While we all love cheering on our hometown teams, our favorite part of a basketball game is the opportunity to create the perfect sporty-chic look. And these two ladies — Katie Holmes and Katharine McPhee — both nailed it at the latest Knicks game. The dynamic duo covered all the fashion bases with chambray button-downs, distressed denim, punchy pumps, and a few glistening baubles. The result? Courtside styles that were equally polished and fuss-free. Whether you're heading to the game or just looking for a cool weekend combo, score big with these celebrity-approved looks.
Can you believe Kate Moss turned 39 on Wednesday? It seems like just yesterday she was a fresh-faced teen model, posing for Calvin Klein ads and dating Johnny Depp. Through setbacks, scandals, and stirring up global controversies, Kate's career has managed to endure — she has starred in campaigns for Rimmel London, David Yurman, Stella McCartney, and Dior, to mention a few, and has even designed collections for Topshop and Longchamp. In 2011, Kate returned to the runway for Louis Vuitton, cigarette in hand — silencing even her harshest critics and reminding us all why we love her so much — then showed her softer side during her English countryside wedding to The Kills' frontman Jamie Hince. With the release of her coffee table tome, Kate: The Kate Moss Book in 2012, it became even more apparent how staggering Kate's career is, spanning over 25 years. No matter what she's gone through, Kate remains a fashion industry fixture and continues to inspire us with her gorgeous spreads and covetable street-style looks. We're taking a look back at some of her many amazing fashion editorials — click through to see them all now.
In 2012, it was all about bright colorblocking — the more eye-catching, the better. But this year, black-and-white is the new, more subtle combo to look to. And lucky for you, it's a way easier duo to master than, say, turquoise-and-salmon. It's only January and celebrities are wasting no time getting in on this chic trend. Kim and Kourtney Kardashian both wore the color-contrasted look (in two totally different ways) out in NYC, while Jessica Chastain put a sophisticated spin on her two-toned pairing. Whether you're heading to a work meeting or slipping into something a little more cocktail-hour-worthy, step inside to draw inspiration from these three different, albeit equally fabulous, black-and-white star-studded ensembles.
