But the former Bond girl's high-fashion choices have also been drawing major attention on red carpets worldwide. At the most recent Oblivion premiere in Japan, Kurylenko stepped out in a gorgeous striped Dior ball gown, but she's treated us to a variety of glamorous looks on every stop of her promo tour.

With a tagline like "F*ck weddings," you know you're in for a treat. Stone Fox Bride released its Spring 2013 lookbook this week, featuring designer Pamela Love lip-locking with none other than Jemima Kirke — also known as Jessa Johansson from Girls. While it may be considered a strong statement (with same-sex marriage laws being debated as we speak), it also simply highlights the elegance and grace of two women together, wearing beautifully crafted dresses.
If you're a bride who essentially hates all things bridal, then Stone Fox Bride is your go-to for beautiful nonwedding wedding dresses. The brand eschews "anything puffy or fluffy, stiff flowers, and pink cupcakes" and is more for the backyard barbecue bride than the stuffy princess type. We love how the line celebrates "looking like a more radiant version of your regular self," and prioritizes being cool and comfortable over everything else. Each custom-made dress is hand-draped in New York and made with fabrics sourced from Italy, India, and France. Stone Fox Bride has a plethora of colors to choose — you can even dream up your own ombré combination — in addition to tons of lengths, silhouettes, and styles. With evocative style names like The Frida, The June Carter, and, of course, The Jemima, each gown has a cool, laid-back personality of its own. If you prefer floral crowns to traditional veils and long and lacy rather than big and poufy, then this is the bridal line for you.

Tom Ford has restricted the release of images of his last few women's collections for the past few seasons, but a video of his Spring 2013 collection went live today, mere weeks after it was presented in London.
The video, shot against a stark white backdrop, extends the precious few images the designer released a few weeks ago into a look at the full collection. The offering matches the initial reviews: aggressive, strappy boots; scoop-back dresses with plenty of sex appeal; lush cocktail dresses; and pencil skirts that zip up the back are all well-highlighted in the video: The '60s feel of the collection is, too: all of the models wear beehive buns and the footage is set to a rambunctious drum solo.
A look at the full collection in the video below.
They say time flies when you're having fun — and Zac Posen and Coco Rocha told us that shooting the Spring 2013 lookbook for Z Spoke was an absolute blast.
"We went through dozens of looks and shots, but it never once seemed like a chore," Rocha said. "Zac sat to the side hand-selecting show tunes for me to dance around to."
In a behind-the-scenes video shot by Rocha's husband, James Conran, the designer and model dance around to Liza Minnelli's "New York, New York" — but not before talking about how useful it is to have friends in a business where each new assignment can sometimes feel just like the last.
"In a very transient and oftentimes flaky industry, it's been so comforting to work with Zac season after season, through good times and bad," Rocha said off camera.
"We all work so hard, striving for perfection," Posen added. "It's nice to be able to laugh and entertain each other in these fun, candid moments."
A look at these two friends doing just that in the video below.
