Ready to find out our top stars of the week? This week's style standouts were all about ladylike looks. Miranda Kerr was the picture of feminine perfection in a sleeveless Equipment blouse, floral Erdem pencil skirt, and nude Lanvin pumps in Tokyo; Olivia Palermo earned her front-row spot at New York Fashion Week in a knotted Carrie Parry blouse, leather midi skirt, and snakeskin ankle-strap Tibi sandals; and Jessica Alba was crowned the master of unexpected combos in a cropped leather jacket and a yellow plaid Ralph Lauren skirt in NYC. And let's not forget about Kristen Stewart, Solange Knowles, Eva Longoria, Lucy Hale, and Nina Dobrev, who showcased stunning looks of their own. Get a closer look at this week's standouts, see why they were chosen, then shop their looks for yourself.
Miranda Kerr traveled in major style to Tokyo wearing this white sleeveless Equipment blouse ($188) with a floral pencil skirt by Erdem, nude Lanvin pumps, and an eye-catching red Samantha Thavasa bag. Her Miu Miu gold pentagon sunglasses ($390), which Rihanna also owns, lent a funky flair to her otherwise ladylike look. Shop Miranda's exact top and shades to work with your floral skirt for a model-inspired office-chic ensemble.
Nicky looked every bit the cool girl on the streets of LA in black and white. Her dual-toned boyfriend vest (shop the navy version) pops against the sunny sidewalk. Cropped jeans and ballet flats are comfy-chic, while a graphic Samantha Thavasa tote ups the artsy ante. Shop it all now.
Maybe you're a fan of celebrity-designed handbags, or maybe you love New York socialite Tinsley Mortimer, or maybe you're just infatuated with anything and everything Gossip Girl. Whatever your obsession, you'll find your fix on SamanthaThavasaUsa.com, the Japan-based handbag company known for its celebrity collaborations. Previously the brand has worked with Nicky Hilton and the Cruz sisters, to name a few.
Tinsley Mortimer is the latest celebrity to design for the brand. She created a capsule collection with a whopping 88 bags, with prices ranging from $180 to $1,300 depending on the size and style. The pieces are varied and eclectic, albeit lacking a bit of cohesion; with that many purses, who can blame her? Regardless, there are some goodies — I'm crushing on the plaid bags for Fall.
Based off of the show What NOT To Wear, I'm deeming this edition of How Would YOU Wear It? "How NOT To Wear Colored Tights."
If I were Paris and standing next to my stylish sister (love the plaid and Chanel shoes, Nicky!), I would have burned those tights. Instead, I'd go bare-legged like little sis. The peep-toe pumps are a bit questionable as well, so I'd ditch those for something more festive.
How would YOU wear it?
Penelope and her sister Monica have been traipsing around Japan this week promoting their new bag line for Samantha Thavasa. Samantha may not be a household name in the US, but she has quite a cult following in Japan and recently opened her first boutique in New York.
The Cruz ladies, who are becoming quite the designing duo, are not the first celebrities to colloborate with Thavasa: Nicky Hilton and Beyoncé have also created bags for the design house. The official unveiling of the collection occured last night and although there doesn't seem to be a cohesive feel to the collection, I do like their use of hardware. What do you think?
