Jennifer Lawrence worked a chic black tuxedo at an event in NYC, while a black silk scarf around her neck fed into the all-black vibe. We love the peekaboo effect with her black lace bra and her chunky black crisscross sandals, but it was her pink Christian Dior clutch that really made her look pop. Inspired by Jennifer's latest party look, wear a black tuxedo at your next fancy affair, and don't forget to finish the look off with a hot-pink clutch to pull in a feminine touch. The black silk scarf is an optional touch, though it would give you a more standout look.
Marion Cotillard has been busy hitting the red carpet circuit promoting her latest film, Rust and Bone. The French beauty usually opts for darker gowns on the red carpet, but her latest spin at the AFI Fest in Hollywood sang a different gorgeous tune. The actress showed off her sartorial style in a stunning Christian Dior beige-and-black leg-baring gown paired with Dior satin sandals and Chopard jewels. From the two-tone paneling effect to the high front slit, we love Marion's modern-chic red-carpet choice — do you? Check out every gorgeous angle and tell us what you think in the comments section below.
Over the weekend Lauren Conrad popped by the Kate Somerville clinic in LA looking part wild, part classic in this cheetah-print button-down blouse by C. Wonder ($128). On bottom she sported black skinny jeans and black ballet flats, shielded her eyes via these Christian Dior cat-eye sunglasses ($295), then carried her signature Chanel bag. What we admire most about Lauren's leopard blouse is that it would look just as amazing at work as it would on the weekend. To get her look, shop this Isaac Mizrahi leopard blouse ($80), then pair it with your black jeans and flats for a daytime look, tuck it into a high-waist pencil skirt for the office, then throw on killer heels for a night out.
Gwen Stefani was spotted exiting Nail Garden in LA looking funky fab as ever in camouflage skinny jeans, this Kelly Wearstler black and white cardigan ($475), L.A.M.B. lace-up sandals, a green Chanel bag, and Christian Dior cat-eye sunglasses. Camouflage is huge for Fall, so follow Gwen's lead and score a pair of skinny jeans or leggings in the print. We love this pair by Elizabeth and James ($228) and these Tripp NYC camo jeans ($69). Dress it down with a cardigan and sandals for day, then dress it up with a blazer and booties by night.
Jaime King looked every part the festive style setter — in head-to-toe Christian Dior Fall 2012, no less — at the launch of Rachel Zoe's must-haves range with Jockey last night. And while the holiday party circuit is still a little ways off, we're looking to Jaime's ensemble for easy day-to-night styling inspiration. Even with its undeniably purple-lovers' slant, you might be surprised at just how simple it is to emulate her bold attire for work (and beyond). No, seriously.She paired a dark long-sleeved eggplant-hued top (but we think a classic black version would work just as well) with a midi-length skirt, which highlighted her svelte frame with a ladylike twist. But let's be honest, body-con or fit-and-flare, the silhouette took a back seat to the skirt's double dose of purple prettiness and textural intrigue, showing that, in this case, the key to a really stunning evening outfit can be pinpointed to just one standout piece. What's more, we're pretty sure that if you swap out her ballerina pumps for a low-key black heel, you could wear this to the office, no problem. If your 9 to 5 calls for less flair, skip the necklace and opt for gold stud earrings instead. Then, when it's time, ramp up the evening appeal by turning your attention to those eye-catching accents once again. If you're a fan of the Hart of Dixie starlet's accessory choices, follow suit. If not, try a jewel-encrusted bib necklace and pointy-toe black patent leather pumps for a similarly cool finish. You can have some fun with the final touches, especially since that purple skirt holds its own. Ready to take your work wardrobe to cocktail hour with a little help from Jaime's latest look?

Olivia Palermo only had eyes for her beau Johannes Huebl on their romantic stroll in Paris, but we only had eyes for her plush plaid Tibi double-breasted blazer ($495). We also love the way she added cool edge to her preppy topper via a marbled sweater, a dark red Christian Dior chain-handle crossbody bag, faded skinny jeans, and a pair of black biker boots by Report ($100). Score Olivia's exact plaid jacket now to throw on top of all of your fabulous Fall pieces: little black dresses, jeans, and even leather.

Well, that was fun: another Fashion Month has come and gone. Now that we've had time to regroup, it seems like this one was a lot more eventful than seasons past. Certainly a lot of the excitement had to do with the new arrivals at Dior and Saint Laurent, but those weren't the only happenings that caused a stir this month. From the critic who got into public spats with two high-profile designers to the most recognizable accessory of the season, we examine the reasons why the Spring 2013 collections will stick out in our minds for years to come.
It wasn't just the celebs, like a red-coat clad Leelee Sobieski that caused a frenzy at Dior. The show itself was a packed house, brimming with fashion insiders and major editors, all anxiously awaiting Raf Simons first RTW collection since taking the helm at Christian Dior. What came down the runway was a decidedly modern take, rife with iridescent sheen, delicate sheer and lace overlays, a playful approach to suiting, and thigh-high hemlines. Got all that?
