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.

Lauren Conrad turns 27 today, and to celebrate, we're highlighting a few of our favorite looks from her. Lauren is known for her feminine aesthetic — choosing fit-and-flare dresses and soft makeup. Watch on to see some of her best fashion moments, and let us know which look is your favorite! On Allison McNamara: Maggy Frances dress.
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. There will be no shortage of options to shop this coming season, but you don't actually have to wait until Spring to get the look. Just shop our editors' picks below to capture the mood (and exact two-toned scheme) now.

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.
For celebrities, sitting front row at Fashion Week is pretty much a given — but what happens when you find out that you're sitting alongside the Anna Wintour? The Vogue editrix is famous for her self-assured, slightly intimidating, poker-faced Fashion Week presence, and earning a seat next to her could easily be a dream come true for most fashion-loving celebs. It also sets in motion a longtime industry superstition: does earning a coveted spot next to Anna also nab you a Vogue cover?
Just in time for the start of Fashion Week, we're taking a look back at some of the stars who have been seated next to Anna during the shows — and taking a tally of whether or not they've graced the glossy cover of Vogue. Click through to start keeping score.
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!
