We've come to rely on Mary-Kate Olsen for her affinity for the daring and the dramatic. Tonight at the Met Gala she delivered just that in a black floor-length gown from her own The Row collection. It may have been minimalist, but it wasn't boring — the gown had a kind of kimono-like silhouette with a satin sash fashioned at the back. To add interest, Mary-Kate added a silver chain-mail satchel and gold jewel-drop earrings. What do you think of Mary-Kate's eclectic ensemble?
Celebrity trends may come and go, but we are thrilled to see the denim shirt holding steady among Hollywood's hottest. Every celeb has her own way of wearing the trend, and we particularly love how these 17 stars worked the basic fashion staple. Channel your inner fashionista by styling denim on denim like Kate Bosworth, balance a pair of darker bottoms with a denim top like Taylor Swift, or layer a chambray blouse over a floral maxi skirt like Jenna Dewan. As you can see from these looks, a denim shirt is super versatile; it works well with everything. So step inside to see more celebs working the trend, then shop our favorite picks.

Mary-Kate Olsen left her NYC hotel yesterday carrying a fresh cup of joe and wearing a pair of sunglasses from her own line, The Row. She's spent most of the Spring in NYC joining her sister Ashley at a variety of charity events including the Met Gala, and most recently partying with a good-looking mystery man.

Spring shoe buzz has been largely devoted to the flatform, but there's another style we're eyeing. We've spotted Diane Kruger, Fearne Cotton, and Mary-Kate Olsen all sporting chunky Spring heels — and loved the look so much we added them to our own wish list. Thanks to strappy details, they have sexy appeal, while the thick platform caters to both our fashionable and functional selves. The thicker heels are more supportive — forget that kind of teetering that seems to go hand-in-hand with stilettos. Right now we're loving the safari-inspired versions by Proenza Schouler and the espadrille-inspired YSL version — just shop our editor's picks below to get the look.
