For Spring 2013, designer Andrew Gn delivered a collection full of ladylike dresses and separates perfect for elegant types — Michelle Obama included. Fitted silhouettes, poufy bell sleeves, asymmetrical hemlines, paisley prints, and black-and-white combinations dominated. There were also a few pops of color — cobalt, chartreuse, and red — which livened things up. While the entire selection was feminine, a series of punchy ball gowns at the end were fit for modern princesses.
Michelle Monaghan found a remarkable way to turn up the heat on the red carpet at the Prince of Persia premiere in LA. Look closely, and peep the bow surprise on her Andrew Gn dress. We've seen a lot of bows in our lifetime, but the unexpected placement on her thigh is a genius way to update a tried and true classic. We like this trend so much, we're also trying it out on tops, shorts, and even rompers. What a bow-tiful surprise!
Zoe Saldana is one of our favorite red carpet queens for good reason — girl knows how to turn heads. At the Avatar photo call in Germany, she inspired in a white ruffle top, oversize bow belt, black satin tulip skirt — from Andrew GN — and Alexander McQueen peep-toes. Darling and daring, a fabulous combination.

Holy glamour puss. Check out Elizabeth Banks in head-to-toe beaded Andrew Gn. She's truly outrageous. The Cannes Film Festival just began and she's already on my best dressed list. The cap sleeves and sweetheart neck are old-school gorgeous and the subtle train is divine. And the black and blue hues are mysterious. Her cat-like eye makeup and sexy curls are also worth mentioning. She could have ditched the thick black cuffs though a simple black satin Swarovski clutch is perfection. Are you as bedazzled as I am?

The much-anticipated Grey Gardens is premiering Saturday night on HBO — are you gonna watch?! Drew Barrymore channeled her stylish, inner "Little Edie" during her promotion circuit this week wearing an abundance of sensational ensembles. The adorable actress showed off her experimental side in a flattering striped dress by Narciso Rodriguez; old Hollywood glamour in an Alberta Ferretti nude gown; bohemian chic in a white, '60s-inspired frock by Andrew GN; and avant-garde appeal in a dramatic Giambattista Valli creation. I know my favorite Drew look, which is yours?
Halter queens infiltrated the red carpet tonight. Actresses like January Jones (left), Penelope Cruz, Olivia Wilde, Diane Lane, Jane Krakowski, Julia Ormond and newcomer Freida Pinto, all wore different colors and patterns, but they had one thing in common: Halter necklines. January's Andrew Gn halter dress was one of the most eye-catching. Other halter styles came in reds, periwinkles, chiffons, velvet, and white. Check them out.
January is after my own heart in this Luxotica Andrew Gn gown. Black is always right for the red carpet, but an ornate golden neckline and cut out bodice take this to the next level. Her exotic gold hoops further emphasis her daring choice. Are you with me?

When the Fall shows were unfolding — when Winter chills were every which where — I showed you a representative look from the Prada runway. And I can say that look was representative of the Fall collection, as it was demure with dramatic, keen lace detailing. As to whether you liked it or not, that was nearly a tie.
But I bet you'll like this racey, lacey look from the Balmain runway. Lace, a traditional yet complex fabric, has been given a serious reevaluation; this is not your grandma's lace. This is 2008 lace — modern, mixed, and multifaceted.
