Last night was the famous Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, and while the runway festivities looked super fun, we're more interested in what the models wore post catwalk. In particular, we love the way Cara Delevingne, Miranda Kerr, and Lily Donaldson rocked unique little black dresses. Cara exuded edgy glam, Miranda was nothing but sexy, and Lily mixed rough with soft. If you need some inspiration on how to breathe life into your black dresses, get a closer look at these VS beauties, then shop their looks — including Lily's exact dress! — for yourself.
Always one to travel in style, Fergie donned a black-and-nude Mason by Michelle Mason frock after touching down at LAX. The singer paired her edgy minidress with a leather blazer, suede bag, and pair of black wedges from her own line, then accessorized with a floppy hat and blacked-out sunnies. Fergie's glam-rock dress would kill it at a concert with friends, or play up the sex appeal by styling it with fishnets, sky-high pumps, and a red-hot lip. You could also re-create this silhouette with a faux-leather shell tucked into a nude skirt, then topped off with your favorite black wedges.
Bright-eyed beauty Miranda Kerr gave the cameras a sultry smile after dining with hubby Orlando Bloom in NYC. Miranda layered up in a raven-hued monochromatic look — sheer tee, pleated Mason by Michelle Mason skirt, and leather Balenciaga jacket. She accessorized with a suede hat and matching booties, then chose a red Balenciaga shoulder bag for a pop of color. Get her exact skirt and jacket now.
If you're looking for a way to add a little drama when you dress it up, you don't have to go to any crazy lengths. Just do like Rumer Willis did and flaunt a little style flair via an asymmetrical hemline. It's not a huge outfit change, just a subtle update that gives a skirt or dress an artsy, avant-garde feel. Keep the rest of your ensemble the same, no major change-ups necessary; the awesome asymmetry speaks for itself.
Before you stash all of your Winter clothing away, make sure to leave out that sexy leather minidress. Take a cue from The Hills star Kristin Cavallari, and wear your slick frock sans tights. Leather dresses aren't cheap, but well worth it considering you can wear them in cold and warm weather. To avoid hot stickiness, I suggest wearing it early Spring/Summer, at night, and with a pair of kickass heels. Again, see Kristin.
Audrina Patridge jumped on the 2010 Super Bowl bandwagon, attending an ESPN event in Miami wearing a sexy and daring zipper-front Michelle by Michelle Mason minidress. She kept the rest of her ensemble relatively basic, adding some peep-toe Christian Louboutin platform pumps, gold hoop earrings, a matching bangle, and a black leather bracelet for some extra edge. Carry a classic quilted Chanel clutch, and you'll have Audrina's look in no time. Shop her exact look now!
I'm not used to seeing Serena so conservative on Gossip Girl, but I think I like it. In this scene, the hottie donned a Mason by Michelle Mason Mocha Shirtdress ($425). The warm hue looks amazing against her blond locks, and I love the unique zipper detail. A cool twist on a timeless shape.

In this scene from the ninth episode of this season's Gossip Girl, Serena wears a less racy look than we're used to. Her Mason by Michelle Mason dress easily translates from day to night, and this Upper East Sider wears it with some fabulous buckle pumps, black tights, and an oversize brown leather bag, adding a cuff bracelet to finish it off. Shop her exact dress and other similar items now!

Nicky Hilton attended a party in the Hamptons wearing a hot LBD by Mason by Michelle Mason. I've been eying this frock for a while now, and now seeing Nicky in it sealed the deal for me. The lace slices show just enough skin, and notice how she continued the cutout theme with sexy sandals. A black leather jacket, patent Chanel clutch, silver bangles, and statement ring complete her sexy cool ensemble.

Racerbacks are usually in the back of tops, not the front. This Mason by Michelle Mason Classic Racer Detail Gray Tank ($187) is playing tricks on us by bringing the racerback detail to the front. It's cool to push the envelope, I would probably sport it if it weren't so expensive. What about you?
