Models, designers, celebrities, and more descended upon Manhattan this week for the 2013 Met Gala, and made sure to share their punk-infused snaps throughout the event. In addition to those high-glamour photos, we also got a glimpse of our fashionable favorites in their moments of work and play. Hilary Rhoda had an unfortunate spill on the set, while her fellow model Coco Rocha showed off her most-loved color of the moment. Cara Delevingne cozied up to Karl Lagerfeld in Singapore, and Stella McCartney made a special visit to Rihanna's concert in London. Also hanging across the pond was Nicky Hilton, who shared a cool candid snap in front of a classic British phone booth, while Bar Refaeli warned against the dangers of skinny dipping — alone.
Model Coco Rocha was seeing gold at this year's Met Gala. The brunette beauty matched her gold-embellished gown with a swipe of the metallic hue under her lash lines. New blunt bangs kept the attention on her eyes.

No look at The Kentucky Derby is complete without a hat. That was evident from this weekend's festive celebrity looks from Lauren Conrad, Krysten Ritter, and Coco Rocha, who finished their ladylike ensembles with coordinating headwear. Coco Rocha made an entrance in sophisticated skirt suiting — but it was the dramatic orchid-adorned headpiece that really turned heads. Krysten Ritter dressed up her floral-print dress and Bionda Castana heels with a floppy ribbon-trimmed hat, and Lauren Conrad paired a soft nude polka-dot sheath dress with a nude floral-adorned fascinator. That's the rundown on who wore what — now, take in the hat-topped looks below and cast your vote for the Derby's best dressed.
It was a fun, photo-filled week around the world for some of our snap-happy style setters. Poppy Delevingne hit Italy and sported an envy-inducing Chanel snapback, while Nicole Richie and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley stuck to classic bohemian-cool wide-brimmed hats. Cat Deeley may have topped them all, though, getting in full character at a French restaurant by wearing a sleek beret. Coco Rocha and Hilary Rhoda both hung out in NYC, while Emma Roberts kicked it — in a cool '90s grunge look — at Coachella. Emmy Rossum got to "play dress-up" in Jenny Packham's glamorous gowns, and Miranda Kerr posed with a pair of very lucky pilots after a flight to Australia on Qantas Airways.
The hottest hair color trend for Spring so far? If Hollywood is any indication, it's all about red. Rachel McAdams has joined a slew of celebrities embracing the benefits of being a redhead, which also include Dianna Agron and Coco Rocha. If a major hair color changeup is in the cards for you this season, you might want to consider this crimson hue. What's your take?
Red hair is having a serious moment in Hollywood, with stars like Dianna Agron opting for rouge locks, and it looks like Coco Rocha has taken a shine to the color, too. The model and host of The Face stepped out last night with her midlength hair dyed a crimson shade. Are you a fan of her latest transformation?
Consider Coco Rocha a quadruple threat. Even if she doesn't like to call herself a supermodel, she's widely known for her prowess as a dancer and a television personality, and now she's putting her singing skills to professional use, too.
Rocha is the star of a new video touting an editorial in an upcoming issue of Hunger Magazine called "Coco + Cavalli." The two-minute clip features Rocha dancing and posing in Roberto Cavalli's Spring 2013 collection, but it also sees her singing a short song called "I Wanna," which was written specifically for this video. The vibe of the video, produced by Hunger's editor in chief, John Rankin Waddell, is decidedly more rock and roll than the Irish jig. But if Rocha has proven anything in her career, it's that she can take on any assignment and make it look easy.

While some of our favorite stars partied down at the Oscars, others were taking it easy and getting to work. Blondes just wanted to have fun at the Chanel event, with Poppy Delevingne, Kate Bosworth, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley all having a blast while dressed to the nines. Coco Rocha was in an equally good mood while celebrating the launch of Banana Republic's latest Mad Men-inspired capsule collection, and Chanel Iman shared a glamorous snap with Halle Berry at the Vanity Fair fete. Alexa Chung happened to be exhausted after a L'Oréal photo shoot and tried to get some shut-eye on the set.
