With a rocker dad and a model mother, you could say Georgia May Jagger knows a thing or two about fashion and beauty. And as the new face of Roberto Cavalli's Just Cavalli fragrance ($45-$75), Georgia has an abundance of perfume, makeup, and style tips to share. Georgia chatted with us from across the pond and discussed everything from her beauty must haves and the best piece of advice she's ever received to how her mom and dad have influenced her look.
Last season might have been all about print-on-print-on-print, but Spring's latest leans toward a more subtle way of styling your bold patterns. At the Diesel and Edun Studio Africa party in LA, brand ambassador Solange Knowles showed us how to style printed shorts (one of our seasonal must haves) for a look that's high on impact, but not over the top. The key to getting this trend right is finding the perfect pair of statement shorts — we suggest a pair that's not too tight and not too short — and pairing it with minimal accompaniments. Solange's abstract-print cuffed Edun shorts pop against her white Theyskens' Theory sheer-sleeve blouse, while gold metallic sandals add just the right amount of shine to her party look. For added pop, Solange polished off her ensemble with a modern Lucite CC Skye clutch ($295) and gold rings. Easy, right? Shop our editors' selection of printed shorts, then get to styling!

Call it wanderlust on fire. Roberto Cavalli's Fall 2013 show for Just Cavalli took its audience on a walk to exotic locales across Asia. But the journey was briefly interrupted when an antifur protestor stormed the catwalk — a long, raised black stage with digital flames licking the sides — holding a sign with the slogan "Your Fashion, Their Death."
After security removed her from the runway, the show progressed with wild pattern combinations: one cream sweater had sleeves cut from a quilted pagoda print and was paired with tiger-print trousers. Some looks were accented with colorful tassels worn as necklaces. A few pieces in a blue peony print looked sweet, but the red dress depicting a gold dragon swimming through orange flames had a decidedly tougher aura.
As for the fur pieces that were being protested, there was no shortage of those. A blue-and-cream colorblocked fur coat came down the runway, and red strands of fur trimmed a parka in a red and black brocade.
Thanks to award season's kickoff parties and other exclusive events this week, we were inspired by a slew of noteworthy celebrity styles. Solange Knowles satisfied our print-on-print craving donning a geometric Just Cavalli suit in NYC, Anne Hathaway's all-black Saint Laurent suit pairing proved all black is always a chic choice, while Emma Stone turned up the heat in a fiery Lanvin dress in LA. Check out more outstanding looks from this week, then shop similar pieces to start your new year in style.
From sweet shorts suits to funky mixed-print pairings, Solange Knowles is known for her colorful, envelope-pushing style. At the season two premiere of Girls, the trendsetter turned heads in a geometric-print Just Cavalli suit, black-and-white Bottega Veneta sandals ($525), and a coordinating colorful clutch. As if her print-on-print ensemble wasn't killer enough, she upped the glam factor with a berry lip and her signature luscious locks. If you love Solange's latest statement-making style as much as we do, shop our printed picks, including her exact sandals, below.
Come Spring, this is the lineup every superstylish 20-something will want in her closet. Why? The fresh twists on leopard print, floral print, print on print, and patterned pants were all gorgeous to look at, yes, but more importantly, entirely wearable. For his younger line, Roberto Cavalli tempered the drama, giving us that signature, sexy Cavalli girl without the va-va-voom factor. Metallics were worked onto sweatshirts, and high-wattage geometric prints were streamlined on skinny-fit pants, done up in borders on silky button-downs, or washed perfectly onto sheer dresses you'd throw on to feel dressed up and totally sexy in under a minute. Truthfully, everything was just plain sexy — that perfect balance of edgy cool, like a leather jacket thrown over a sheer blouse, that felt entirely effortless and impossibly cool. And it didn't stop — even knits were given the cool-girl treatment with cutouts, and a menswear-style blazer was made infinitely more enticing with a lacy hem peeking out from underneath it.
- Trends: Print on print, vests, leather, sheer, metallics.
- Colors: Black, white, blue, nude, pink, purple, leopard print.
- Key Piece: We're loving the look of the blazer and lace; the cutout knit is a must-have piece.
- Accessories: Metallic ankle-strap heels, open-toe knee-high boots, mirrored glasses, colored chain necklaces, open-toe booties, slouchy messenger bags, and studded clutches.
- Who Should Wear It: Poppy Delevingne; we'd love to see Kate Bosworth in that chunky, cutout sweater and Alexa Chung in the metallic pullover.
Roberto Cavalli has joined the small handful of designers who took his cues from the sea this season: his Spring 2013 collection for Just Cavalli was inspired by a large tank of tropical fish he keeps at home. Vibrant colors like bright yellow, green, and purple combined with deep-sea blue to form interesting prints, and sequins that looked like glittering scales were applied all over one sweater and as accents on shirts. A blue-and-white print that featured conch shells was a cool addition to the mix, and it shone when paired with leopard print on the runway. Leopards may not be creatures of the sea, but this is a Cavalli collection, after all.
