Who can blame Gatsby when Daisy is being played by the lovely Carey Mulligan? Though we first fell in love with her in the 2005 adaptation of Pride & Prejudice, it's her ravishing red carpet style that has us on constant Carey watch. Donning everything from simple silhouettes adorned with subtle jewels to high-shine confections twinkling with enchantment, we are consciously under this British beauty's style spell, and we have no plan of ever coming out. While promoting her latest film, The Great Gatsby, Carey Mulligan has been on a chic streak, showcasing dashing designs from Lanvin, Prada, and Victoria Beckham — just to name a few. Get ready to be captivated by this leading lady's effortless elegance in 49 dazzling looks.
Of course, models look amazing on the runway, but it's their off-duty street styles that we really love to see. Each girl has her own aesthetic, and we love them all for different reasons. We can thank Kate Moss for proving that leopard goes with everything. We count on Miranda Kerr to sport sneakers (or just about anything) in the chicest way possible, and we look to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for her effortlessly styled layers. As always, Alessandra Ambrosio puts a sexier spin on casual cool, and Gisele Bündchen makes even jeans and t-shirts look high-fashion. There's more inside — like Cara Delevingne's punky Brit-girl style and Karlie Kloss's take on the classics — so keep clicking to see all our favorite models and their top street-style moments this year.
Charlize Theron is just the latest in a long line of style setters who have ditched the color wheel to embrace a sleeker black-and-white look. Taking cues from the Spring runways and street-style fixtures, some of our favorite celebs are adopting the striking color duo for just about every occasion and inspiring a new set of ways to wear the classic palette. Click on to see more than 50 Hollywood trendsetters and fashion fixtures showing off the look.

While Kate Bosworth is fascinating to watch for her talents on screen — her latest film Black Rock hit theaters earlier this month — it's her offscreen expertise as a red-carpet beauty, street-chic queen, and jewelry maven that has us under a major style spell. By mixing up Isabel Marant, her own JewelMint pieces, Proenza Schouler, Burberry, and Calvin Klein (to name a few), Kate has proven her undeniable knack for putting together laid-back, impossibly cool ensembles with enviable ease. Case in point: her cutoffs and American flag tee at Coachella two years ago incited a near-overnight fashion craze and a siege of street-style copycats. We could go on and on about how she gets it so right, but we'd rather just see her envy-inducing outfits for ourselves. Click through to get a healthy dose of inspiration now.

We don't think we've ever seen Olivia Palermo in an outfit we didn't love — or want to re-create. We watched The City just to see what she'd wear every week; now we can get our style fix watching her front row at Fashion Weeks around the world, playing dress-up for Oscar de la Renta as the face of the designer's Outnet collection, or strolling the streets of New York City alongside beau Johannes Huebl.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Rooney Mara, Nicole Kidman, and Carey Mulligan are the latest in a long list of fashion darlings and actresses to take Raf Simons from the runway to the red carpet. Ever since Belgian designer Simons, formerly of Jil Sander, took the reins at the legendary label, he's presented five exquisite collections. Naturally, stars like Cotillard (the face of Lady Dior) and Jennifer Lawrence (the face of Miss Dior handbags) have flocked to his jaw-dropping gowns, and we can totally see why. Simons is breathing new life into the design house by taking iconic past-collection references (think New Look from the 1940s) and updating them with a modern twist. Step inside to see all the stars who have donned Simons's designs for Dior now.
Can we talk about Miranda Kerr's amazing fashion sense? It's no secret Miranda has solidified herself in the street-style hall of fame, but the Australian beauty has also mastered the art of turning up the heat on the red carpet. Showcasing her flawless figure in body-hugging creations, high-shine minidresses, and carefully cutout gowns, Miranda's penchant for sexy silhouettes makes her a red-carpet favorite. To be fair, she doesn't always opt for seductive styles, as evidenced by the ethereal, embellished Valentino confection she wore at this year's Vanity Fair Oscars party. Whether channeling a '50s pinup or a Grecian goddess, it's clear Miranda's style savvy knows no limits, and in honor of her recent birthday, we're looking back at her best red carpet moments yet.
