While some of our favorite stars partied down at the Oscars, others were taking it easy and getting to work. Blondes just wanted to have fun at the Chanel event, with Poppy Delevingne, Kate Bosworth, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley all having a blast while dressed to the nines. Coco Rocha was in an equally good mood while celebrating the launch of Banana Republic's latest Mad Men-inspired capsule collection, and Chanel Iman shared a glamorous snap with Halle Berry at the Vanity Fair fete. Alexa Chung happened to be exhausted after a L'Oréal photo shoot and tried to get some shut-eye on the set.

Alexa Chung brought her signature effortlessly laid-back style — and radiant smile — to the Grammys red carpet tonight. The fashion darling selected a yellow-and-white fit-and-flare floral-print dress that delivered a sweet, retro vibe to the Grammys, then added some glitz via glittery ankle-strap pumps. Shiny silver nails, red lips, and a demure pinky ring served as Alexa's only add-ons. What do you think of Alexa's vintage-inspired ensemble — is it too casual or just right?

Many fashionable Hollywood celebrities turned up the glamour at last night's amfAR Gala at NYC's Cipriani 42nd Street. The event, which helps kick off New York Fashion Week, was full of designers and celebs in stylish gowns. Ashley Greene wore a white Giambattista Valli frock while Sarah Jessica Parker went for a daring Maison Martin Margiela Couture pink dress. Honoree Heidi Klum donned a black Michael Kors number, which she wore when she chatted with the designer and her former Project Runway costar on the red carpet.
Other guests included Cheyenne Jackson, Chloë Sevigny, couple John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, and Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke, who dazzled in a dramatic Zac Posen gown. Of course, the night wasn't only about fashion — the amfAR Gala benefits AIDS research and honors those who have made significant contributions towards the fight against the deadly disease. In addition to Heidi, designer Kenneth Cole and Janet Jackson were honored for their work with the organization.
Major congratulations are in order for footwear designer Nicholas Kirkwood. On Tuesday, Kirkwood took home the fourth annual British Fashion Council/ Vogue Designer Fashion Fund prize, beating out other talented nominees like Roksanda Ilincic, Mary Katrantzou, and Peter Pilotto as the first accessories designer to nab the honors — and it's well-deserved. Since launching his eponymous shoe label in 2005, you're most likely to spot Kirkwood's heels on the red carpet. The celebrity style set is perhaps the most obvious indicator of his fashion influence, with trendsetters like Diane Kruger, Alexa Chung, Miranda Kerr, and many, many more slipping into his whimsical, ultrasexy footwear for press appearances, premieres, and parties. We couldn't think of a better tribute to the designer than a look back at the A-list clients who've helped make his footwear so famous. Step inside to see Nicholas Kirkwood's creations dazzle on the heels of our favorite celebs.

Between the slew of award shows and big red-carpet events, it was a busy week for some of our favorite style setters. We got a glimpse of the one and only Karl Lagerfeld on set at a photo shoot, and hung out with Alexa Chung as she posed for Maje. Bar Refaeli bowled us over with her jaunty hat and glasses getup, and Rachel Zoe took her throne as the chief stylist at ShoeDazzle.
For the girl who has big plans for ringing in 2013 — but isn't big on frills or sparkle — we're here to give you a different kind of punch up in our latest Countdown to New Year's Eve installment. Alexa Chung's leopard-print ensemble is just the thing to inspire your own take on exotic styling. Follow suit with a printed sheath dress (with a black lace-trimmed slip dress peeking out from underneath for added texture) or get creative with an oversize leopard-printed blouse and lacy shorts. Then layer up with a slick black trench coat and tights. While we're all for showing off some leg, unless you're lucky enough to be in a year-round warm locale, you're going to need some Winter-ready wares for the inevitable chilly trek outside. A glossy pair of flat Chelsea boots, a chain-strap bag, pyramid-shaped stud earrings, and a bold red lip offer up the perfect combination of standout accents to round out an already statement-making outfit. No towering heels necessary. Listen, if you're dressing for the last night of the year, why not take a walk on the wild side, right? Shop our key pieces below to channel your version of Alexa Chung come Dec. 31.
