This week's top stars ran the style gamut in printed pieces, pastel palettes, and chic travel ensembles. Kristen Stewart mixed color into her Fall wardrobe in Paris, working a yellow Balenciaga leather jacket and printed pants, also by the designer; Alessandra Ambrosio chased the fleeting Summer sun in a crisp white blazer, mint Hudson cutoffs, and studded Valentino pumps in LA; and Kim Kardashian wowed us in black and white colorblock Sass & Bide pants in Sydney. These ladies are just a few of the standout style stars, so cruise through to see who else was crowned, then shop their stellar looks for yourself.
We brought you all of the action live from last night's 2012 Emmy Awards, and today our Fashion and Beauty Reporters Allison McNamara and Kirbie Johnson are breaking down the best looks from the evening. From Zooey Deschanel's fairytale-inspired gown to Claire Danes's smoky eyes and pregnancy-perfect Lanvin dress, we've got the scoop on all the fashion and beauty highlights in this special edition of Fab Flash. On Allison McNamara: Kimberly Ovitz dress from Forward by Elyse Walker, T + J Designs necklace. On Kirbie Johnson: J.Crew dress, Melinda Maria earrings.
Celebrities brought out the major glamour factor at last night's Emmy Awards, showing a bevy of looks ranging from utterly feminine to drop-dead sexy gowns. We narrowed it down to the top five contenders: Tina Fey stunned us in a gorgeous bordeaux gown by Vivienne Westwood, Kerry Washington shimmered in draped neck gown by the same designer, while Claire Danes radiated in a magnificent yet deceptively simple yellow gown by Lanvin. Emily VanCamp's diaphanous gray tulle confection by J. Mendel emoted the perfect ethereal quality, and Ginnifer Goodwin's orange embroidered Monique Lhuillier dress had obvious showstopper appeal. Five beautiful ladies in five beautiful looks — which one gets your best dressed vote?
This year's Emmys may just have been the most fashionable yet. Christian Dior, Zac Posen, Jason Wu, and Dolce & Gabbana were all well-represented on the red carpet, and even better, the amount of stars who bucked the trend for cookie-cutter glamour and weren't afraid to experiment a bit seemed higher than ever. Perhaps it's all those front-row seats at Fashion Week and darkly dramatic magazine covers (ahem, Michelle Dockery)? Whatever the reason, it's definitely all for the better. Herein, our picks for who nailed it at the 2012 Emmys.
The Fashion Weeks of New York, London, and Milan may be taking up most of the industry's attention as of late, but there have been plenty of other noteworthy style moments elsewhere this week as well. New York City Ballet's Fall 2012 opening night, for example, brought a flurry of high-glamour looks on a host of superchic stars. Anne Hathaway, Sarah Jessica Parker, Elettra Wiedemann, Michelle Harper, and more were on hand to fete the event, as was Valentino Garavani, who looked just as dapper as ever — and just happened to design the dance company's costumes.
Click through to see all that, plus more of the week's best looks, here in our best-of-the-week roundup.

As Summer winds down, warm-weather looks are limited, so this week's celebrity style standouts embraced the last of their minidresses and transitioned to Fall-friendly textures and darker hues. Our trendsetters this week were Kate Bosworth in a green Proenza Schouler tweed skirt, Olivia Palermo in an animal-print blouse and pleated Stylestalker shorts, Sarah Jessica Parker in a red printed Oscar de la Renta dress and polka-dot Manolo Blahnik pumps, and a few more including Miranda Kerr, Rachel Zoe, Emma Watson, and Kim Kardashian. Take a closer look at our fashionable picks, get inspiration for your weekend wardrobe, then shop their looks for yourself.
This week's lion's share of gorgeous looks by far belonged to the Venice Film Festival. Not only were some of the chicest actresses of the moment in attendance, but the sheer volume of photocalls, dinners, parties, and screenings also guaranteed that the opportunities for style inspiration would be plentiful.
At the premiere of The Iceman, Brit Marling looked angelic in a strapless, white Resort 2013 Gucci gown, the hem of which was printed with a garden of grasses and blooms. At the same premiere, Winona Ryder took the opposite approach in a darkly dramatic lace Dolce & Gabbana — and the results were equally as stunning.
But the true star of Venice, style-wise anyway, has really been Kasia Smutniak. The Polish actress, former model, and festival's host has looked flawless at every single appearance and in every single dress — from a gauzy floral Valentino to a Raf Simons Jil Sander to a streamlined, crimson Armani Privé.
See all those looks, plus more from around the world — including Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (left), Miranda Kerr, Selita Ebanks, and more — right here.
