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.

Coco Rocha teamed up with Banana Republic for its third Mad Men-inspired collection. The line fully captures the mod style of the 1960s — think bold prints, big bouffant hairstyles, neck scarves, and dramatic cat-eye makeup. Taking cues from the iconic decade's print-on-print mixing, bright colors, and creative accessorizing, our fashion reporter Allison McNamara styled out a Spring-perfect outfit, along with Coco Rocha, at The Grove in LA. Watch on to see the final result! On Allison McNamara: Madewell dress, Stella & Dot necklace.
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.
The ombré hair color trend is still going strong with a high-contrast update. While a subtle transition from dark to light has been the ideal for ombré in the past, a new norm is emerging: colorblocked strands. Recently, celebrities have been spotted wearing a look that is more dip-dyed with an obvious division between roots and tips. Coco Rocha is letting her flaming ends grow out with her brunette color meandering at chin-length. Amber Heard's dark hair immediately shifts to blond around eye level, while Sarah Jessica Parker softens the abrupt transition from dark to light with a few blonde highlights around the face. Here's an opportunity to let your roots hang loose, and skip a few touch-up appointments.
