Colorful ensembles are always playful, but there is something so chic and understated about a solid-hued look, which is why we adore how these six celebrities rocked their monochromatic looks. Melissa George worked a red-hot ensemble with bow-accent Christian Louboutin pumps in Hollywood, Kate Bosworth went black on black in Hugo Boss in Berlin, while Ashley Greene blushed in a neutral Emilio Pucci mini and textured Casadei pumps in LA. In a world where prints are prominent, it's easy to push aside classic monochromatic ensembles, but next time you're heading out on the town, take a cue from these stylish stars.
Welcome to Friday, the wonderful day when we reveal CelebStyle's top stars of the week. We had quite the fashionable crew this week from Gwen Stefani's crisp and cool Cali look to Solange Knowles's vibrant printed blazer pairing and Dita Von Teese's sexy red sheath and leopard combo, with a few more including Dianna Agron, Katie Holmes, Selena Gomez, and Kate Moss. Check out all of our style-setting winners, find out why they were crowned, then shop one or all of their looks for yourself.
Earlier this month, Selena Gomez stepped out in a stunning sequin Roberto Cavalli minidress at the MuchMusic Video Awards in Toronto, and once again the actress proved she's not one to shy away from sparkles. While in Cannes, Selena worked a sequin Alice + Olivia blouse with distressed skinny jeans for a casual-slash-dressy feel. While her top is dazzling, pay special attention to her white Casadei pumps. We love that Selena chose a contrasting white shoe instead of, say, a basic black. It really elevated her look to more modern heights. To achieve Selena's casual, sparkling style in your city, pair a similar sequined top with distressed skinny jeans and white pumps, or step it up a notch with leather pants for a hot date-night look.
It's Friday, which means it's time to round up our best-dressed celebs of the week. This week's standouts were Solange Knowles in a floral green Flaminia Saccucci suit, Jessica Alba in a fresh chartreuse and cobalt color combo, Olivia Palermo in a sophisticated nautical look complete with embellished Manolo Blahnik pumps, and a few more including Nicole Richie, Gwen Stefani, Taylor Swift, Kim Kardashian, and Jenna Dewan. These eight exceptionally chic looks are dying to be worked into your wardrobe, so check out our top stars, why we loved them, and where you can score their lust-worthy looks.
Solange Knowles is no shy girl when it comes to fashion, so it was totally fitting that she wore a thematically appropriate green floral suit by Flaminia Saccucci with nude Casadei pumps at the 2012 MoMA Party in the Garden benefit in NYC. While the floral-print trend has been blooming for seasons, Solange's bright green floral blazer and matching asymmetrical skirt makes us want to hone in on green floral pieces for Spring and Summer. If you're gutsy like Solange, then wear a green floral frock with a matching green floral blazer. To dabble more subtly, sport a green floral top with jeans or black leather shorts. Play around to find the perfect combination for you, and if you don't own any green floral pieces, then shop our favorites below to get started!
Jessica Alba has been on fire lately, donning astounding street-chic styles around the globe, and the actress didn't disappoint when she took her monochromatic NYC look to new heights via classic accessories — a straw Tory Burch fedora and white Proenza Schouler PS1 bag. The clean lines of her neutral-palette look — elbow-patch Joie sweater, crisp button-down, cuffed creme trousers, and matte Casadei pointed pumps — are so sleek, so fresh. Re-create Jessica's latest street style by shopping her exact hat and bag to pair with your monochromatic looks or work her staple accessories with anything in your closet.
Lauren Conrad has been hitting a fashion home run while promoting her new book, The Fame Game, and during a recent trip to NYC, she kept her chic streak going by pairing a tribal Tibi blouse with a chiffon Paper Crown skirt. She completed her polished city style with nude Casadei pumps, a matching Chanel bag, and black oversized square shades, then pulled her signature locks into a loose braid for a romantic feel. Pair Lauren's exact skirt with her Tibi tank in a blue hue, or style the printed tank with white skinnies and neon sandals for a more casual take on this dainty look.
Jamie Chung was all smiles at an LA movie premiere last night, donning a playful ensemble fit for Spring. The brunette beauty tucked a white silk tank into colorful zigzag shorts, then layered on an ivory blazer. Her Casadei pumps added a touch of sophistication, while a purple clutch, matte orange nail polish, and minimal jewelry completed her sunny style. Take a cue from Jamie and pair a white tank and blazer over eye-catching bottoms, or winterize the look with a pair of pastel printed pants and suede ankle boots.
Modern Family's Sarah Hyland looked gorgeous tonight in a Temperley dress paired with Casadei shoes. We love how the actress channeled Old Hollywood glamour in the beaded vintage-inspired dress and wavy updo. A diamond bracelet and metallic clutch complete the young beauty's ensemble. What's your vote on her red-carpet look?

Queen B, Leighton Meester, waved to adoring fans while shooting an episode of Gossip Girl in NYC. The stylish socialite shielded herself from the Winter chill in a colorful layered ensemble — green Diane von Furstenberg coat, hot pink Autumn Cashmere scarf, and green suede gloves. We paired her plaid Milly skirt with a sequin Alice and Olivia sweater and calf-hair Alexander McQueen tote. Thick black tights and multitextured Casadei pumps completed Leighton's luxe look.
