There is no doubt about it, celebrities are obsessed with leather, and we particularly love how these eight ladies updated the trend by trading their leather pants for a pair of hot leather shorts. Eva Longoria, Miranda Kerr, Whitney Port, and way more have been spotted styling both black and colored leather shorts in every which way. Whether you aim for a professional yet playful look like Eva in tan leather shorts or want an edgier feel like Whitney and Miranda, step inside to shop our picks to find the perfect pair for you. Then be sure to also check out Hollywood's other leather obsessions: leather jackets and leather tops.
>> Feeling crabby? Miu Miu's new batch of sparklers are just the thing to put a little lightness in your step. In stores now, the whimsical new sandals are inspired by sea creatures — starfish, sea horses, crustaceans — and come all glammed up in the label's signature shimmer: pink crystals, amethyst, micro-studs, and glitter. The super-walkable flat and kitten heels, priced from $695 to $890, are also entirely handmade. See them all, right here.
There are some trends that are thought to be reserved for tennis, boating, or perfecting your golf swing, but Chloe Moretz squashed those stereotypes, making argyle look street chic after touching down at LAX. The young star paired her navy-and-nude argyle turtleneck with black skinnies and multitexture wedges, then layered on a charcoal leather jacket for extra cool. She carried her travel essentials in two leather shoulder bags — a brown messenger and a black Miu Miu — while shading her peepers with black circle sunnies. Snag Chloe's downtown hip with a similar argyle sweater and leather jacket, or go classic by wearing your argyle with a white button-down, cuffed denim, and boat shoes.
We're constantly trying to nail the effortlessly chic get-up-and-go look that so many starlets, like Emma Roberts, have mastered. While out and about in NYC, the actress donned a casual ensemble — gray tee, dark skinnies, and black Miu Miu ankle boots — that is perfect for a day of errands. But what really caught our eye was her embellished powder blue ASOS jacket, which you can snag for less than $100! Emma rounded out her downtown style with a leather shoulder bag, matching nail polish, and cat-eye Miu Miu sunglasses — here's the black pair. Shop her exact jacket and booties to pair with a basic tee and dark skinnies for day, or test drive a black tank and leather leggings after dark.
Emma Roberts has been earning some major style points lately! Earlier this week she attended the Ferragamo Signorina Fragrance Launch party in NYC, while looking sophisticated in a palette of blues and white. Yesterday she stepped out in an equally polished daytime get-up. Emma played with different shades of blue, pairing her sky-colored ASOS cardigan with dark wash Rag & Bone skinny jeans. She perfected her city style with black boots and bag, and then infused some personality via tortoise shell Miu Miu sunglasses. See Emma's awesome ensemble in today's Fab Flash!
Leighton Meester's Gossip Girl character, Blair Waldorf, shows off her Spring style in a floral Peter Som frock, bright nail polish, and a matching lip on set in NYC. The brunette beauty layers a zesty yellow peacoat over her dress, then slides on a pair of burgundy mary-jane Miu Miu pumps to create a new color pairing of yellow and maroon. A triple-strand beaded necklace, maroon Stella McCartney bag, and retro hairdo complete her on-screen style. Another more casual way to re-create this Gossip Girl's transitional color combo is by pairing cropped yellow trousers with a maroon sweater. Don't forget a pop of floral via shoes or a handbag to really nail this chic Spring mix.
Europe's Fashion Weeks have come to a close for Fall 2012, and Paris ended on a high note with some unconventional eye makeup looks. Ornate eyebrows at Chanel, bright mascara from Stella McCartney, and illustrated eyeliner at Miu Miu were among the runway highlights. See the boldest looks — watch now!
>> Miuccia Prada is having a trousers moment. Today's Fall 2012 Miu Miu collection was chock-full of them, and earlier this month they dominated her collection for Prada as well. In fact, the designer is so into pants this season that she told WWD they were "the only thing exciting" to her currently.
She certainly has found some interesting ways to work them. The pants on offer at Miu Miu were jauntier and more playful than the ones on display at Prada and came in a jumble of shimmering jewel tones and supersized patterns. These were more mannish, too, cut wide down the knee and cropped at the ankle. Paired with matching '70s-style sportscoats and loudly patterned blouses, the look was chic in a nerdy-kitsch, leisure-suit way.
With a star-studded front row in attendance — Marc Jacobs, Katy Perry, and Kate Mara to name a few — Miuccia Prada sent a myriad of menswear-inspired suits down Miu Miu's Fall 2012 runway. The tailored looks got a whimsical kick via colorful hexagonal patterns, wide stripes, retro tapestry, flashy plaid prints, and ultrabejeweled embellishments. Add to the mix an all-star lineup of models, including Miranda Kerr, Coco Rocha, Doutzen Kroes, Jacquetta Wheeler, and Karlie Kloss, and you've got a cool collection worth poring over. Our full runway report is coming shortly, but click through to check out Miu Miu Fall '12 now.
We always love a good airport-chic ensemble, and Victoria Beckham's outfit at LAX yesterday definitely made the cut. She opted for a short-sleeve maroon sweater by Miu Miu, which she paired with a navy plaid skirt. She polished it off with black tights, superhigh booties, and her daughter Harper Seven in her arms! Victoria made her way to NYC from LA to get ready to show two collections at Fashion Week, Victoria Beckham and Victoria Victoria Beckham. We can't wait to see what she puts on the catwalk for Fall 2012! On Allison McNamara: Isabel Marant sweater, Rebecca Taylor coat.
