At the National Board of Review Gala in NYC last night, Anne Hathaway stunned in an all-black Saint Laurent suit, ankle-strap Givenchy sandals, and a patent-leather Jill Milan clutch. Head-to-toe black is always stylish, but we particularly love the tie-bow blouse and dainty lace detail of Anne's red-carpet look. This is the first of a number of award-season events, and if this menswear-inspired outfit is any indication of what's to come from Anne, then we can't wait to see what's next. Take a cue from the actress with a black suit and tie-bow blouse, and then finish the look off with a pair of minimalist sandals, a patent clutch, and sparkling crystal studs.
Rumer Willis shopped around LA's Venice neighborhood, pairing her leather-on-leather look with a colorful scarf and a tribal Will Leather Goods duffel bag. She battled the cool weather with lots of layers — a white button-down, black blazer, matching cardigan, and sleek leather pants — then completed her street style with Jimmy Choo moto boots ($950). Rumer's leather Yves Saint Laurent bag and tortoise shades balanced her bundled ensemble. Mimic this look with her exact boots, leather pants, and a colorblock scarf for your next shopping adventure.
Gwen Stefani looked picture perfect in a structured Thierry Mugler blazer ($1,749, originally $2,499) and plaid shorts while arriving to her parents' LA home for Thanksgiving. She balanced her printed bottoms with a black crewneck sweater, white Peter Pan-collared blouse, opaque tights, and black leather ankle boots. In true Gwen style, she accessorized with retro waves, a red lip, silver bangles, and a black patent Thierry Mugler tote. Give your denim a break, and style Gwen's exact blazer with plaid shorts and all-black staples for an impeccably polished Fall look.
Styling a pair of white tuxedo-stripe trousers with a sheer black tank and black boyfriend blazer, Gwen Stefani was the epitome of cool on her way to perform at the NFL's 2012 kick off game in NYC. The singer has been making a serious case for bold pants lately — check out her plaid harem pair and her printed Balenciaga jeans — and her latest pair definitely followed suit. Gwen streamlined her black-and-white pairing with black pointed Christian Louboutin pumps ($625), a few sparkling jewels, and a classic red lip. Re-create her sporty-chic look with tuxedo-stripe white trousers, a black blazer, and matching pumps for a funky night on the town.
