The holidays may be over, but that didn't stop Emma Stone from working a fiery red-on-red ensemble at the LA premiere of Gangster Squad. The blond beauty wowed in a strapless brocade dress, complete with a dazzling statement necklace and brooch belt, all by Lanvin, and a pair of red patent Christian Louboutin pumps. In Lanvin's Pre-Fall 2013 lookbook, the crystal brooch accentuated the dress's sweetheart neckline, but we love how Emma used it to define her fit frame. If you love this red-hot look as much as we do, shop our picks to re-create it for your next evening soiree.

Holiday offerings include brooches saying "I've been good all year" and "I'm a good friend of Santa," along with the design-your-own large brooch, which has "all I want for Christmas is" on top with space below to draw your gift of choice.

Brooches are back and better than ever, and this latest batch of celebrities are showing us exactly how it's done. Opting for a more modern look, Freida Pinto made a striking arrival at the Tribeca Film Festival wearing a sharp red Gucci suit accessorized with a black and gold butterfly brooch. We love how Freida tempered her masculine pantsuit with such a feminine accoutrement, but if you're looking for a more ladylike appeal, look to Kate Middleton for inspiration. The Duchess of Cambridge styled her blue tweed Rebecca Taylor skirt suit with a red crystal flower pin — a look you can easily replicate for work. Furthermore, Elisa Sednaoui pinned her vintage-inspired Chanel brooch to a cropped top for a new twist on the button-up top.

Much-loved by wide-shouldered power-dressers in the Eighties, the bold brooch is back—but this time around it's not about jewel-encrusted serpents and cheetahs. Lanvin's Alber Elbaz designed two of our favorite whimsical pins, both perfect when piled on in pairs and worn with a ladylike dress or added as an afterthought to a favorite handbag.
