Hollywood's A-listers gathered to celebrate the 15th annual Costume Designers Guild Awards tonight. Among the red-carpet standouts, we spotted Ginnifer Goodwin in a floor-length red Nonoo gown and coordinating clutch, while Anne Hathaway sparkled in a gold sequined Gucci minidress, and Ashley Madekwe (baring her midriff) in her pink floral J. Mendel ensemble. Step inside to see what Lily Collins, Christa B. Allen, Kristen Wiig, and more of the style crowd wore tonight.
Julianne Hough has majorly stepped up her style for the Safe Haven promo tour, and we've certainly taken notice. We had a chance to catch up with the on-the-rise starlet at the launch of her shoe line for Sole Society, and she dished on everything from her personal style to her go-to brands and her thoughts on the sneaker craze (spoiler alert: she's sold). Keep reading for Julianne's stylish reveals.
PopSugar: How would you describe your personal style?
Julianne Hough: Feminine with a little bit of an edge, especially with my haircut. I feel so much more sassy and free with it, and I feel like I can wear these fun high-collared shirts and kind of business-y things, but it's still feminine with boyish kind of clothes. I'm still kind of figuring out what I like, but what I love is that I like to try different things, and it might not work, but at least I tried it.
PS: What's your shoe personality?
JH: Fashion-forward and sassy, but a little bit classy, too. I like a classy statement heel that you can wear with jeans, wear with a dress during the day, and dress up at night, but that are also fun and colorful.
Kate Middleton has the Midas touch when it comes to making just about anything seem like it should probably be in your closet, too. This covet-worthy list includes everything from her go-to nude L.K. Bennett pumps and dreamy Alexander McQueen wedding dress, to that iconic blue Issa wrap dress — and now, we think it's safe to assume we can add this skirt suit into the ranks. The royal beauty chose an oxblood-hued Paule Ka set to make her standout case for the skirt suit, and here are the only two reasons you need to, er, follow suit.
One: if you needed yet another reason to be convinced of this rich burgundy color's seasonal appeal, look no further. Two: the skirt suit — as worn by Kate — isn't nearly as stuffy or as matronly as we once imagined it to be. In fact, we're absolutely loving its fresh tailored feel (hello, double-breasted blazer!) and feminine edge (sometimes it's more fun to wear a girlie circle skirt to work). Thus, we're on board with her latest look and its versatility in the office-chic department. We'd say this is for the girl who doesn't always want to take the trouser approach to her work attire. It's Fall-appropriate (opaque black tights and black suede pumps included) and provides a perfect example of how to switch things up with polished finesse. If you're more of a boots-in-cold-weather girl, then a slick pair of riding-style boots will keep the professional outfit intact. Now, it's time to shop our favorite skirt-suit picks below.
Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel have been touring the world promoting their new flick Total Recall. Both ladies have been looking impeccable — check out all their outfits on FabSugar — but we're particularly taken by Kate's London promotion street-style outfits: a gray, black, and coral colorblock Paula Ka ensemble, a neon Preen dress, and a black-and-white outfit with spiked Christian Louboutins. Get a closer look at all three ensembles, then shop similar pieces, including a few exact items.
It's time to debate who wore Paule Ka's black and white confection better: songstress Brandy or actress Odette Yustman. At first glance, both ensembles look practically identical, but if you hone in on the fine details, each lady added her own flair with different accessories and footwear. Brandy added a funky touch to her ensemble with sexy black sandals and a bold bangle at a Grammys afterparty. Odette wore hers to a Golden Globes soiree. She opted for a more elegant approach via gray satin platform pumps and dangly earrings. Both look beautiful — which do you prefer?
Kate Hudson and Marion Cotillard continued the white-hot red carpet revolution at the 2010 SAG Awards. Kate donned a stunning backless Pucci gown and Marion sported a flirty one-shoulder feathered minidress by Elie Saab. Following suit, Dexter star Jennifer Carpenter was on-trend in a strong shoulder, long-sleeved minidress by Paule Ka complimented with bold, black accessories.
