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.
Rachel Roy brought a major dose of bright to an event she attended in NYC when she wore a loud yellow blazer from her namesake collection. The designer completed her menswear-inspired ensemble with black Rachel Roy shorts, Balenciaga heels, and a handful of delicate jewels: a cross necklace with a rock necklace, multiple gold rings, and a bracelet ring. While it would seem that such an in-your-face jacket wouldn't be a good investment, allow us to prove otherwise. Besides the way Rachel is wearing it, you can also top it over light jeans for a casual feel, dark wide-leg jeans for a polished '70s vibe, denim cutoffs for festival cool, a little black dress at night, a white dress for a breezy look, and even hot-pink shorts for stylish colorblocking. Convinced? Get Rachel's yellow blazer now and start incorporating it into your Spring mix!
It's no secret that we love our brights, especially now that it's officially Spring! That's why we can't wait to re-create the bold yet balanced look Rachel Roy donned at the NYC screening of Intruders. The designer styled a denim Current/Elliott shirt with cropped yellow trousers of her own design and a pair of Manolo Blahnik snake-print pumps, then accessorized with a few gold cocktail rings and leather wrap bracelet. Her bold nail color and two-tone Celine bag took her Spring-worthy ensemble to new heights. Copy this fresh ensemble for a sun-soaked brunch by tucking your denim button-down into a pair of cropped yellow pants, then finish the look off with snakeskin pumps. Or for a more casual vibe, try a pair of lace-up sandals.

Gorgeous clothes are only part of the excitement of New York Fashion Week — there are also the creative, cool beauty styles. This year, trends from New York ranged from easy braids at Rachel Zoe to flowing, straight hair at Theyskens' Theory, to giant bouffants at Carolina Herrera.

Rachel Roy knows how to make clothes that are both fashion forward and wearable. From knee-grazing leather skirts to intricate tweed dresses and luxe fur in vibrant shades, there is something for everyone in the Rachel Roy Fall collection. Rachel told us the secret to mixing prints like a pro, and she also revealed a surprising hidden talent! Watch today's Fab Flash to see more. On Allison McNamara: H&M blouse, Urban Outfitters jacket.
Rachel Roy looked to something rather unconventional when working with the makeup and nail artists at her Fall 2012 presentation — and that something odd was dirt. Yes, dirt. But there was nothing icky about these beauty looks. See why you'll fall in love with the designer's soil-inspired style now.
This season, Rachel Roy translates megawatt hues onto wearable pieces — even furs and sweaters get the pop-of-color treatment to pair against the line's sleek trousers or simple shifts. If it's not rich, saturated color, then Roy steals our interest with her texture story in leather, tweedy knits, and open cable knit. Altogether the looks read in perfect balance — she delivers a hint of downtown edge (minus the intimidation) and marries it effortlessly with the uptown sophisticate. See the entire collection now, including her brand-new shoe collection.
>> Colorblocking and fashion's recent obsession with pink were in full effect at Rachel Roy's Fall 2012 show. The designer paired complementary hues — red and pink, cobalt with green — for a fresh and vibrant Fall 2012. Hemlines were ladylike, silhouettes were streamlined, and fabrics were super-rich. Knits, fur, tweed, angora, and leather lent a luxe undertone. Among the more surprising options were wide-leg, knee-length shorts in both knit and leather; just perfect for the girl who cares about trends but still wants to feel cozy.
True to form, Rachel Roy delivered a delightfully wearable collection of bold-hued knits and dresses, homing in on the perfect balance of easy separates and keen architectural detail for Fall '12. Roy excels in crafting pieces women want to wear — it's that mix of the understated, like slouchy knits in brilliant colors, and the sharpness of a well-executed cut — and the backs of Roy's evening gowns are done with perfect precision. This season, she's particularly adept at translating megawatt hues onto wearable pieces — even furs and sweaters get the pop-of-color treatment to pair against the line's sleek trousers or simple shifts. If it's not rich, saturated color, then Roy steals our interest with her texture story in leather, tweedy knits, and open cable knit. Altogether the looks read in perfect balance — she delivers a hint of downtown edge (minus the intimidation) and marries it effortlessly with the uptown sophisticate.
