Welcome to Friday, the end of the week, the beginning of the weekend, and most importantly, the magical day where we reveal CelebStyle's top stars of the week. We've rounded up seven of the hottest, freshest, and downright smashing celebrity looks that must be mimicked, pronto. This week's standouts were Tiffani Thiessen in a sweet menswear-inspired ensemble, Diane Kruger showcasing a sultry siren Cannes look, Jessica Alba in a colorful Mother's Day outfit, and a few more including Charlize Theron, Kristen Stewart, Ashley Tisdale, Kim Kardashian, and Jessica Stroup. Click through to check out this week's style stars, why we love them, and how you can re-create their lust-worthy looks.
While celebrating Mother's Day at Coldwater Canyon Park in Beverly Hills on Sunday, Jessica Alba looked sweet in her Earnest Sewn Harlan skinny jeans in cotton candy ($210). She continued her love affair with colored denim, only this time there was a twist due to the tie-dye effect. Jessica also got in on Hollywood's obsession with sneakers by sporting a pair of white high-top kicks. Up top she kept more feminine by wearing a loose-fitting cream-colored blouse, topped with a matching scarf, and finished with Lanvin's shiny beige shades. If you're on the hunt for a pair of trendy jeans, add Jessica's Earnest Sewn pair to your mix, then play around to create more fun outfits. For nighttime, pair your cotton candy jeans with all black for a sleek look, or wear them with a bright yellow tank for major spunk.
Olivia Palermo joined Amber Tamblyn at the 2009 Whitney Contemporaries Art Party and Auction in NYC. She took a more casual approach to this event, wearing jeans and a white top, with bright orange shoes. She covered up under a gray leather jacket and carried a beautiful nude clutch.

Scott Campbell, who gave Marc Jacobs his tattoos, will be the resident tattoo artist at a new concept shop opened by Carlos Quirarte of Earnest Sewn.
E-commerce giant, Shopbop, launched into a new video series using a buyer as the narrator of spring's hottest denim options.
In case you aren't one of the thousand-odd people to become friends with Marc Jacobs on Facebook, you can still read his thoughts.
>> INSIDER WIRE —Beyond all her normal Fashion Week wardrobe — Marc Jacobs, Margiela, Balenciaga — Carine Roitfeld added two carry-overs from Men's Paris Fashion Week in June into the mix: a floppy hat and a distressed denim skirt. The choices are still dividing opinions, but at least now you know that the skirt is the Charlotte by Earnest Sewn. [Grazia]
On Tuesday we visited Coterie's eveningwear selections for fresh runway looks but most of the action was taking place in the contemporary market over on the Piers. Buyers worked themselves into a frenzy over collections from Tracey Reese, Velvet, Geren Ford, Inhabit, Shin Choi, Marc Bouer Glamit, Cynthia Steffe, Twinkle, Betsy Johnson, Harlan Bel, Nieves Lavi, Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent, Anna Sui, Nanette Lepore, Citizens of Humanity, Seven for All Mankind, Foley and Corinna, Julie Haus, Erotokritos, Nicole Miller, Vera Wang Lavender, Tibi, Shoshanna, Alice and Olivia, Rag and Bone, Diane Von Furstenberg, Earnest Sewn, Adam by Adam Lippes, Diesel, Milly by Michelle Smith, Helmut Lang, Iodice, and Sunner.
Living in your jeans just got a little more literal. Diesel just celebrated the anniversary of Fuel For Life, and this month, Earnest Sewn launches Simple Serum (right, $45-65), an anti-aging skincare product that comes in only three iterations: face, body, and eye. The mini-line includes the active ingredients like Argiraline, a peptide made from natural proteins. For now, it's only available at Earnest Sewn stores, but that's likely to change.
On the opposite end of the simplicity spectrum, next month Rock & Republic is releasing a cosmetics line that was three years in the making and includes a compact bearing the company's logo in 445 Swarovski crystals. If you don't have an extra $225 lying around for this bling-ed out bronzer, there are over 100 other products to choose from, including primers, gel eyeliners, and natural hair makeup brushes. You'll be able to find them at Bloomingdale's, Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus. Get a first look below.
Today we popped into the Coterie Trade Show where the godforsaken clothes are actually bought and sold! If you fancy a quick glance at Fall 08, off the runway, here are some photos we snapped in attendance. Coterie, one of the most prominent trade shows in America, takes place in the Javits Center and is vast and sprawling. The maze of designers is only navigable by the atmosphere of their respective booths. Indeed, as any good New Yorker knows, even in the space of a kitchen tile one can make themselves known. Tory Birch had a guard with clipboard as the booth was 'by appointment only', Rag & Bone was prohibiting press pictures (thanks lady, we've got the runway shots anyway), and Earnest Sewn built a huge wooden wall to act as a shield against the lesser-merchandised vendors. Adam by Adam Lippies, Diabless, Manoush, and Iodice, on the other hand, hosted mini-Coterie parties in their respective booths where all were welcome. Some representatives hired models to pass out look books, while others simply mowed-down on sandwiches, staring into space. It was day three of the event, after all, and everyone let their true colors shine through. Some of our favorite designers at the show, coming soon.
Hear me out. Faded jeans may be reminiscent of the early '90s — a time when supermodels ruled the world — and is that such a bad thing? You may feel compelled to wear a pair with an off shoulder black v-neck sweater and Keds, and as a result look like early Cindy Crawford. Again, not so tragic in my book. But if you dig 'em and want to look modern, take a clue from Alexander Wang (pictured) who twinned the light denim with fun heels and silky textures. But hey, if you want to channel the supermodel heyday, be my guest.
