The week began with the SAG Awards and ends Sunday with the Super Bowl, a busy schedule that set the stage for a number of celebrity appearances and the chic eventwear to go with them. Not all were straight from the red carpet; another day in the life of Miranda Kerr served as yet another example of the most sophisticated street style, while Jessica Chastain showed off a gorgeous coat and a covetable bit of Dolce & Gabbana arm candy while out and about in NYC. As for the more glamorous style notes, both Kate and Rooney Mara had a stylish week at their respective premieres, making the rounds in pretty Peter Som and Alexander McQueen, and just in case you missed Beyoncé's jaw-dropping appearance (and performance) at the Super Bowl halftime press conference, we've got a glimpse of that LWD, too. Step inside for a look at all that, plus the rest of this week's best dressed.

There's no denying the ample amount of chic black and white hues spotted on the Spring '13 runways. Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors showcased sleek checked and striped prints, while others, namely Alexander Wang and Ralph Lauren, focused on cool colorblocking in the graphic palette.

Just shop our editors' picks below to capture the mood (and exact two-toned scheme) now.Left to right: Marc Jacobs, Alexander Wang, Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren
The most recent case of '90s nostalgia comes courtesy of today's official launch of the DKNY and Opening Ceremony limited-time capsule collection. The retailer is reissuing 15 of DKNY's iconic early '90s pieces, including a t-shirt printed with the NYC skyline from '92 and a hooded logo dress and a colorblocked jumpsuit from '94. "DKNY was a pioneer of streetwear fashion in the Nineties," said Opening Ceremony cofounder Carol Lim. "We have been longtime fans of the brand and were very excited to bring back select, quintessential styles that feel fresh even today." And Lim isn't the only one feeling the pull of the '90s. We've seen a resurgence in both fashion and culture where this era is concerned, not least of which is the overarching grunge-rock plaids seen in both Phillip Lim and Dries Van Noten's Spring shows, Alexander Wang's Bon Qui Qui stunt, and the comeback of MTV's House of Style. It may be more than a decade past, but from where we're sitting, the '90s never really left us. The throwback staples are now available in Opening Ceremony boutiques and on the website, with prices ranging from $145 to $665. Click on to see the complete line, plus some of the better '90s style moments to make a recent reappearance.
Happy Friday to us! It's a particularly good day, not only because it's almost the weekend, but also because Jennifer Lawrence hit us with not one, not two, but three stunning looks while making her press rounds in LA. For her first ensemble, it was all about the red knee-length pencil skirt. The actress then tucked a black sheer-sleeved sweater into it and finished it off with these Jimmy Choo studded Maya pumps ($1,150). For her second outfit, Jennifer shone bright in a knee-length turquoise dress, only to tone it down with a black blazer, strappy nude sandals, and Kara Ackerman rings. And for her final number, Jennifer pulled out all the stops in a yellow Emilio Pucci Resort '13 peplum dress. All three dresses packed a major rainbow punch, but only one of Jennifer's looks can be named "best dressed." Cast your vote below!
While Fashion Week may just be less than a week away, our days leading up to it have been anything but mundane. We snapped a few poolside pics of L-Atitude's latest preview, caught a glimpse of the perfect Summer dress to soak up the sun in from Misha Nonoo, and learned how to pile on the bangles, prints, and rings for the ultimate luxe bohemian look. The week didn't stop there, though — our favorite "adorkable" star stopped by our LA studios, too! Of course, no work week would be complete without stopping to pamper ourselves a bit. Case in point: a late-night stop at our favorite frozen-yogurt spot in New York City. See all this, plus more, in our insta-highlights from the week!

Just the night before, Rooney Mara joined sister Kate on the red carpet for the premiere of her new show. Now Kate is returning the favor. The actress stepped out for the NYC premiere of Rooney's new film, Side Effects, and even followed up with a sweet tweet about her sister's performance. Aside from the family bonding, the sisters' arrivals again gave us a side-by-side comparison of their personal styles. They set the stage for a style battle with obvious contrasts. Rooney opted for a creamy white Alexander McQueen confection and Kate stepped out in a flirty LBD. But color palettes aside, there are a few common denominators. Each dress boasts a feminine fit-and-flare shape and a more fashion-forward cut. Kate's is certainly a more understated look, and the true beauty of Rooney's dress is in the gorgeous floral appliqués and embellishments. Rooney is also the first to bring McQueen's Pre-Fall '13 collection to the red carpet. As for the finishing touches, Kate looked to a sleek metallic clutch and Nicholas Kirkwood platform pumps with a little more personality, while Rooney let the gorgeous dress take the focus, also choosing Kirkwood heels, but more pared-down, nude peep-toes. That's the fashion breakdown. Now, study up and cast your vote for the sister who stole the spotlight on last night's red carpet.
