Paris Fashion Week is the crème de la crème of Fashion Weeks, so naturally, dressing for the shows deserves extra attention. Our style director, Noria Morales, shares with us three of her favorite looks that took her around the City of Light, from Dior to Lanvin to Ladurée, in style — plus, a few key tips to help you nail that editor look on your own (hint: invest in some classic pumps and a statement necklace!).
For his Spring 2013 bridal collection, Dennis Basso was inspired by the glamour of Deauville in the '60s, when even dressing for dinner was a special occasion. Accordingly, his brides were turned out in hand-beading, lace, and, of course, a grand train at his show at Kleinfeld Bridal in New York. Watch as he fills us in on how to pick a dress for your body type and see the entire collection — including four couture gowns — here!
Chanel always attracts a fashionable crowd, so it's no surprise to see the likes of Blake Lively, Diane Kruger, Alexa Chung, and more celebrating the 80th anniversary of Chanel's Bijoux de Diamantes. Not to mention that this was Blake's first official appearance since she tied the knot with Ryan Reynolds back in September. Even though Blake kept her hands strategically placed in her pockets, we did manage to get a glimpse of her shiny new ring. Watch on to see all the looks from the party, and let us know which ensemble you like most! On Allison McNamara: Ark & Co dress. Hair and Makeup by Kasia Bohos.

Fresh from the the excitement of his Spring 2013 runway show, Zac Posen chatted with us about his American Elegance-inspired collection. He spoke about his love of the female form, as well as the potential of one of his gowns showing up on the red carpet. He also talked about his longtime relationship with models Naomi Campbell, Coco Rocha, and Karolina Kurkova, saying, "They're my family." Our question: can they adopt us?

While most of us enjoyed a nice long holiday weekend, Taylor Swift hit the recording studio in Santa Monica in a pair of standout polka-dot pants that we love. Printed pants are a serious Summer must-have — Jessica Alba, Olivia Palermo, and Solange Knowles have already tried out this trend — and Taylor's more subdued approach on the patterned-pant look is spot-on. She paired her polka dots with a crisp light blue button-down, and velvet red loafers that perfectly match her cherry red lips. Watch today's Fab Flash to hear more about Taylor's stylish holiday get-up. On Allison McNamara: Topshop blouse, Skirt from Shareen Vintage.
Lea Michele turned up the heat in a sleek LWD for the taping of Late Show With David Letterman. The Glee star arrived wearing a metallic blazer and miniskirt but slipped into something a whole lot sexier for the show, choosing this Amen frock with a low neckline and side cutouts. Lea snagged the No. 14 spot on Maxim's Hot 100 list, even beating out Kristen Stewart, who came in at No. 15. Watch today's FabFlash to see Lea's sexy style. On Allison McNamara: Rebecca Taylor dress, Honey Rose & K necklace from Thread on Grandview.
