On Allison: Dolce Vita dress
Vanessa Hudgens and Miranda Kerr showed that sexiness can come in many different sartorial forms at last night's Unbound Access presentation. Vanessa Hudgens opted for classic separates, pairing a silky white blouse with a shiny black pencil skirt detailed with a metal zipper, both by AllSaints. Her outfit received finishing touches from a delicate gold necklace, which accented the low neckline of her top, and pair of classic black pumps. Meanwhile, Miranda Kerr went sleek and body-conscious in a printed Hervé Léger dress, whose black seamwork followed every curve of her body. She then polished off her outfit by adding a complementary pop of color with her blue pumps.
We may not be able to shop the looks off the Spring '14 runways just yet, but we can certainly follow their styling lessons, for free! Every Fashion Week, designers employ a whole new set of styling strategies so cool (and so easy!), they make us wonder: why didn't I think of that? So while we may not exactly be the brains behind the looks, we wholeheartedly plan to use the pretty genius layering tricks we saw at a few of our favorite shows.
1. Wear a Crop Top Covered Up
For the crop-top skeptics, this one's for you. Rebecca Taylor sent models down the runway with cropped sleeveless shells layered over full-coverage t-shirts and blouses, making the trend a whole lot less intimidating for those of us needing a few more ab workouts, not to mention more work-appropriate options for a place where you can't exactly bare your midriff. Don't wait till Spring to wear this one — try a white tee under a leather crop top to take the look to Fall.
2. Temper a Sexy Dress
Another lesson in making the sexy more approachable, Hervé Léger served up its bandage dresses with a tee layered up underneath. The effect? Less vixen, more cool girl, and a look that — unlike that sexy little dress on its own — we can totally sport at cocktails, dinner, and beyond.
That's not all we learned — for more creative layers you'll want to use right now, keep reading.
The piece: Hervé Léger Crocodile-Bandage Baseball Cap
The price: $98
Why we want it: We've been ready and waiting to wear a baseball cap ever since the Fall 2013 runways forecast them all over the place. Sure, the sporty hat is pretty seasonless, but there's something appealing about subbing one for your slouchy beanie as we enter Fall. You could wear your old-school team-logo version easily, but if we're going for it, let's really go for it. Hervé Léger showed this pick on the runway, and we'll be using it to top off jeans, boots, and sweaters layered under blazers in the upcoming months. Join the team, won't you?
At New York Fashion Week, it's not always about the models and designers. In fact, celebrities can steal the spotlight with their gorgeous ensembles and even more stunning hair and makeup while sitting front row. While we have plenty of favorites to choose from, Beauty Reporter Kirbie Johnson highlighted some of the unforgettable looks we love so far at Fashion Week. Trust us, you'll want to use these ladies as inspiration.

Hervé Léger never skimps on sexy, and the beauty look for Spring 2014 wasn't any different. For the face, Val Garland for Sephora Pro used Marc Jacobs Omega Bronze Perfect Tan ($49) to create the perfect glow. For the hair, Laurent Philippon for Bumble and Bumble created texturized waves behind a sleek, wet look at the hairline. Watch now, and join us behind the scenes before the models took the runway. And for more on Hérve Léger's look, see our entire gallery.
Once the spectacle of Nicki Minaj taking her seat at the Hervé Léger Spring 2014 show was over, it was time to really turn your attention to the clothes. Grays and blacks, plus the full spectrum of denim hues and a splash of warm pink, were all over the place. Leather corsets kept the brand's ever-present sex appeal going, though there was a softer side as well: the first look was a figure-hugging dress styled over a t-shirt. Watch the entire thing here and see for yourself!
