Gossip Girl is currently on hiatus, but we are here to feed your craving for the latest stunning looks from one of our favorite Upper East Siders played by Blake Lively. For her latest Serena ensemble, Blake showcased the versatility of her yellow python Pour La Victoire pumps ($250) by working them with two different looks. During the day she sported her bold pumps with an embellished tank and floral Haute Hippie miniskirt, then at night she paired them with a strapless black Lorick dress and chain-strap Oscar de la Renta bag. Get a closer look at this trendsetter's onscreen style, then shop her looks — including her exact pumps — for yourself.
The love scenes on Gossip Girl may be scorching, but shooting in chilly NYC requires the cast to don lots of layers. Newcomer Ella Rae Peck's long red coat and charcoal-gray scarf sealed in much-needed warmth, while her gray suede Pour La Victoire wedges took her ensemble to new heights. We added a striped neon sweater and leather hobo — similar to the one she's carrying — to finish off her cozy screen style. This look is perfect for a lunch date with friends, or switch it up with a pair of over-the-knee boots for a night out.
>> Miniature minaudières and itty-bitty box bags get festive this season with rhinestones, glitter, and a heavy dose of sheen. Though they may be small in stature — just big enough for the necessities — these jazzed-up minis pack quite a style punch. Try Dolce & Gabbana's baroque pearl-and-gemstone-studded style (left) for a bit of '90s glam, or go girlie with Kate Spade's candy-colored jeweled version; both of those — plus more — here, in the slideshow.
Reese Witherspoon embraced the fleeting Summer sun in an ikat print dress and Pour La Victoire sandals as she left Sugarfish Restaurant in LA. Reese accessorized her breezy ensemble with Jimmy Choo sunglasses, a python Chloe bag, and simple hoop earrings. Unfortunately, her exact bag is no longer available online, but shop now to get the exact bag in a different shade here.
Reese Witherspoon showed off another sunny seasonal look, opting for a bright print and perfect neutral accents. We love that her summery cami dress could work just as well on the beach, but with her luxe Chloe bag, strappy Pour la Victoire sandals, and a few gold jewels, she elevates it for a crisp street-styled look — add a blazer and this would be a look that could carry you through transitional weather. If you're looking for the same easy day ensemble, just shop our editor's picks to channel Reese's look.
Jaime King's ladylike Jason Wu look caught our attention at last night's Kate Spade dinner. Her style is a perfect mix of easy separates with a few standout additions, like her short-sleeved Jason Wu knit paired with a delicate, embroidered midi skirt from the Resort 2012 collection. To finish, she adds a dose of metallics via a pair of platform pumps and ties it all together with a quilted clutch. Feeling inspired? Shop our editor's picks to get a similar look.
The pieces of Karolina Kurkova's Tribeca Film Fest outfit may be relatively simple, however the result is anything but. Skillfully mixing wardrobe basics, Karolina gives a perfect lesson in making the most of what's in your closet. She elevates a pair of easy, cropped trousers ($114, originally $162) with a sheer, silky top and a great blazer, while accessories are similarly understated — just a touch of delicate silver and gold jewelry, a pair of classic pumps, and a clutch ($345) to match.
