What goes up, must come down — and when Sandra Bullock applied the law of Gravity to her blue dress at the film's Tokyo premiere, the result defied all expectation.
From the waist up, Sandra's minimalist blue Carolina Herrera design was a simply stunning creation, but as the eye moved from top to bottom, the dress came down to earth with pretty floral details and satin Charlotte Olympia peep-toes. Among the most feminine in her film tour so far, this cocktail number was in high contrast with her look from earlier this week: a modern red Roland Mouret sheath. Which just goes to show (after three months of hitting the carpet for Gravity), Sandra can do no wrong!

Natalie Portman is traveling the globe for her new film Thor: The Dark World, and so far she's given us seven fantastic ensembles to admire. The latest — for a screening hosted by The Cinema Society and Dior Beauty — was a high-shine Dior top, which she accessorized with a sleek pair of black pants and classic black heels. But this isn't the first time Natalie has wowed us in Dior — all you need to do is see what she debuted during her time in Paris and London to see what we mean. Click through to see all of Natalie's red carpet looks for the Thor sequel.
In fulfilling her promotional duties for Thor: The Dark World, actress Natalie Portman hit London in two beautiful looks. For her daytime interviews, Natalie chose a green knit dress that was made more special thanks to a sheer hemline and sleeves. She then completed her look with nude slingback Charlotte Olympia pumps and a pair of silver drop earrings. For the red carpet premiere of her flick, however, Natalie went the voluminous route in a silver metallic Dior maxi skirt balanced by a simple black top and black Charlotte Olympia pumps. Both looks are classic, but which Natalie Portman do you prefer — day or night?
Your favorite pair of heels has an evil twin. Well, actually, more of a heavenly, comfortable twin. As much as you love throwing on hot pumps for date night, sometimes you need a chic pair of flats to give your feet a much-needed rest after a night on the dance floor. On the other hand, maybe you’re prone to wearing flats every day at work and need to step up your style routine with work-appropriate pumps that still stay true to your personal style. Either way, we've got you covered, and you needn't sacrifice style for comfort this fall. Flip through the slideshow to find the pair of heels and flats that suits your style personality.
We've become so interested in updating our Fall wardrobes with quirky, unexpected pieces (like the Kenzo print that will undoubtedly keep the evil eye at bay) that our eyes have wandered to the most whimsical clutches of them all. We're talking bags masquerading as clocks, zebras, editions of War and Peace, and even a perfume bottle for the street style star at heart. After all, why settle for a traditional clutch when you can fold your evening essentials into a map of New York City?

While you might not have heard of British shoe and accessory designer Charlotte Olympia, you've probably seen her over-the-top shoe designs gracing the soles of many a famous foot (Beyoncé, Anne Hathaway, and Sarah Jessica Parker have all been spotted wearing her much-loved velvet Kitty flats, which retail for $600-$700 in adult sizes). And now tiny toes can have the pleasure of wearing Olympia's whimsical shoes with the introduction of her Incy ("incy wincy spider") collection.
In luxe velvet, pony skin, and satin, the six playful designs (prices range from $125 to $395) come in sizes for babes, toddlers, and little girls and include a minisized Kitty flat, the Swarovski crystal-encrusted Charlotte's Web, and the Tutti Frutti, which features a rainbow of fruit flavors. Launching Aug. 12 on the Charlotte Olympia website and in the designer's London, New York, and Los Angeles stores, the Incy designs each come with a coloring book and crayons, so tiny fashionistas can keep busy while moms shop the grown-up styles. Keep clicking to check out the entire collection before they start popping up on your favorite celeb babies.
