From everyday ensembles to red-carpet premieres, celebrities are having a full-on love affair with fur coats, but we particularly love the cool-girl flair Kate Moss's baby-blue topper added to her street-chic ensemble. The model styled her luxe topper with a black turtleneck sweater, distressed jeans, celeb-approved Isabel Marant boots, and a two-toned tassel necklace while shopping around London. Get inspired by Kate's playful pairing by working a light-blue fur topper with a black turtleneck and worn-in denim, or add a bit of holiday cheer to your favorite ensemble with this oxblood faux-fur Topshop jacket ($170).
Along with Katy Perry and Kate Hudson, Sarah Jessica Parker attended a fancy amfAR gala in LA wearing a black wide-leg jumpsuit that almost looks like a black maxi dress. But it was her snazzy accessories that really took her look to the next level. The actress sported this exact Fenton black crystal necklace ($375) with a tassel necklace, and carried a shiny chainmail bag and a navy sequin jacket. For your next nighttime outing, if you want to look equally dazzling, look to SJP by rocking a similar black jumpsuit with a tassel necklace, a shiny jacket and bag.
While out in daylight in London, Kate Moss wore her signature black leather biker jacket, but this time around, she switched things up with black velvet leggings, brown boots, and the biggest statement piece, an oversize black tassel necklace. The result was part biker babe, part cozy chic, and a bit eclectic. To get Kate's latest London look, wear your biker jacket with velvet leggings and brown boots, then add a tassel necklace — peruse the selection on ShopStyle — to get that final quirky touch.
Olivia Palermo was a front-row maven at the Noon ny Noor show at New York Fashion Week Spring 2012.

Her tan Meli Melo bag ($760) — she also owns the gray version — carried all her fashion essentials. Shop Olivia's latest look for your next big fashionable outing.

Kelly Ripa is on camera a lot, so not only does she always have to look camera ready but also camera pretty. While filming a segment in NYC, Kelly opted to dazzle the cameras with a kimono-style Anna Sui dress and Yves Saint Laurent Tribute platforms. Sui's prints are desirable because they're always wonderfully hippie and feminine at the same time. I thought Kelly's look needed some more accessories so I also gave her a gold tassel necklace and nude clutch. And action.
Try to pry your eyes away from Ivanka's beautiful face and focus on her jewelry. Her tassel necklace is perfection defined. The clustered strands add a swinging, vintage quality to her ensemble, and look how it contrasts with her striking blue top.
