Hello, angels! With the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show airing tonight, two of our favorites — Adriana Lima and Karlie Kloss — were out last night showcasing two party-perfect looks for anyone seeking to infuse their holiday wardrobe with serious sex appeal. Adriana embodied the lady in red with a strapless lace dress and a pair of studded red stilettos. Karlie stayed angelic in a structured white dress by KaufmanFranco, accessorized with a pair of drop earrings and metallic heels. Which take on holiday dressing would you rather wear?
Diane Kruger had our undivided attention at the European Film Awards this weekend in a glitzy Valentino Couture gown and a Coach Madison caviar framed clutch. It wasn't just the dress's sparkle that turned heads — the actress, who's never been afraid of a showstopping gown, dared to go pretty sheer, revealing not just a flash of skin but also a pair of black underwear. Sure, the gown's beading helped to conceal so that the peekaboo effect wasn't quite so in your face, but we still got a glimpse of Diane's underthings.
Truthfully, we'd be hard-pressed to find a look from Miss Kruger that didn't play fast and loose with the rules of red carpet dressing. The actress often pushes the boundaries and embraces bold, fashion-forward couture. The question is — can she pull it off? Are you a fan of Diane's latest look?
Coincidentally or not, the dresses on a red carpet often seem to display a common theme — not so for this weekend's TrevorLive event in Los Angeles. The looks we loved ran the gamut from long and slinky to short and sassy, with colors ranging all the way from chocolatey brown to buttercup yellow. Nina Dobrev perfected the princess vibe in a cornflower blue Elie Saab gown and Rupert Sanderson heels, while Naya Rivera did a slinky, sultry brown velvet number that hit at midcalf and wore Stuart Weitzman sandals. Sarah Michelle Gellar might've played it safest of all in a flippy black minidress, and Fergie, as always, jumped furthest outside the box in a high-collared, strong shouldered yellow number that looked pulled from the closet of an '80s power-dresser.
All four women showed up in really different looks, which should make voting for a favorite fairly easy. Tell us, which is your favorite?
Amy Adams showed just how versatile lace can be over the weekend while promoting American Hustle. Saturday night's afterparty to the New York premiere saw a bodycon black dress by Altuzarra whose scoop neckline was decorated with black lace in a subtle display of sexiness. She then opted for a full-out sheer look on Sunday in a halter gown by Elie Saab constructed out of alternating bands of black fabric and lace. A zigzag black headband and sparkling jewelry completed the look. Which take on lace did you like best?
It seemed like 2013 was the Year of the Collaboration. Designers partnered with mass-market retailers, labels partnered with stylists, and on at least two occasions hip-hop stars worked with European brands (Rihanna and Yeezy, we're looking at you.)
But of all the many collaborations we saw this year, four stick out for whipping shoppers into a frenzy and generally dominating conversations in 2013. Prabal Gurung and Phillip Lim's collaborations for Target, Catherine Malandrino's work for Kohl's, and Isabel Marant's partnership with H&M were all superlative, and we want you to vote in our poll by Dec. 16 to decide which was your favorite.
Christmas came early at last night's KIIS FM Jingle Ball when both Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus performed in holiday-inspired costumes that were anything but family-friendly. Selena vamped it up in a shiny red leotard covered with a sexy lace overlay, black combat boots, a black choker, and — to complete the full-on goth look — black lipstick. Miley continued her year's parade of crop tops with a red sequined option with furry white cuffs and matching bottoms. And although most singers don't typically perform with their purses still slung on their shoulders, Miley couldn't help but bring her furry chain-strap Chanel bag up on stage with her. And why not? The strap perfectly matched those on her boots!
You don't have to own their labels to know their names (but wouldn't it be nice if we could all have a little Alexander Wang for Balenciaga in our closets?!). These designers were on the tip of our tongues this year for all the right reasons. Whether it was a grand entrance, big exit, or even bigger collaboration, these six are so chic that choosing just one is a nearly impossible task. That's where you come in! Read on, and vote in our poll by Dec. 16 to pick the year's top designer!
When Jay Z announced that he and Beyoncé were embarking on a 22-day vegan challenge, he may not have been thinking about the impact the diet might have on their high-fashion wardrobes. But after a recent outing to LA's Cafe Gratitude, what Beyoncé wore to lunch, not what she ate, has become the biggest focus. That's because Bey's fur-collared Christopher Kane coat (the same one pictured above), made with real fox fur and glossed leather details, isn't exactly vegan.
But we ask you, does it have to be? Surely there are vegans who embrace an entirely plant-based lifestyle, but just because you eat like a vegan, do you have to dress like one?
Whether off duty or on, models had a very big year — and none was bigger for the likes of Joan Smalls, Kate Moss, Kate Upton, and Cara Delevingne. Read on to find out why we couldn't look away from these faces and vote in our poll by Dec. 16 to pick the year's top model!
Jennifer Lopez and Reese Witherspoon both attended the March of Dimes Celebration of Babies Luncheon in Hollywood on Friday, and both women employed different strategies when they got dressed for the event.
While Witherspoon chose a gray sheath dress that hugged her body and stopped right above the knees, Lopez went a little more glamorous. Her strapless, leaf-print Bibhu Mohapatra dress looked a good deal more formal in comparison.
We like both dresses, but we're curious to see which approach you like more. See more pictures and cast your vote here.
