Emmy Rossum is having a pretty stylish run this week. First she gave us an adorable Rebecca Taylor look while singing the national anthem in New York. Then she went ultra ladylike in a fit-and-flare dress by Temperley London for a Broadway premiere. And just last night, she channeled her inner flapper girl in a fringed, metallic Naeem Khan dress at an NYC charity event. Click on to see all her stylish looks right here! On Allison McNamara: Club Monaco top, Helmut Lang shorts.
With an ultraflattering shape, Spring blue hue, and the fact that it's fit for a number of occasions, Emmy Rossum's icy Temperley London dress is the kind that's easy to take from the red carpet to our own noncelebrity events. That means even if you're not attending a Broadway premiere like Emmy, there are plenty of reasons to add this party dress (or something like it) to your closet for seasonal cocktail parties, wedding season, and beyond. For starters, this dress is like a waist-defining secret weapon that narrows your middle with the side paneling and a fit-and-flare silhouette. In baby blue (or the pastel of your choosing), you can safely take this party dress to any wedding without fear of offending the bride, and if you're looking for the right accessories to complete your wedding guest attire, Emmy has that, too: a pair of metallic heels that complement — but won't upstage — your cocktail dress. We can hardly think of a reason not to shop the look — channel Emmy's party-perfect ensemble with our editors' picks.
Safe Haven, starring Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough, hit the big screen on Feb. 14, but we've been following Julianne's promotional tour since the beginning. From LA to Toronto and beyond, the actress has been showing off the most a range of red-carpet wear, keeping it interesting by mixing it up with cocktail dresses, gowns, and separates. Most recently, Julianne showed off a beautiful lace fit-and-flare Zuhair Murad dress with black embellishments at the Berlin premiere, then chose a Houghton floral peplum gown for the Dublin premiere. Step inside for a closer look at all of the actress's looks thus far.

With Hitchcock's Tippi Hedren in mind, Temperley London's Fall 2013 collection displayed a covetable array of refined cable knits, sheer details, check prints, and eveningwear that can easily take one from London's latest art opening to the red-carpet parties in Hollywood. Designer Alice Temperley always manages to inject a refreshing element to her feminine wares, and this time it was seen through her refined embellishments and patterns. The opening set of looks showed an array of sheer, '60s-inspired printed blouses paired with full skirts, white dresses adorned with silver beading, and modern printed sheaths paired with swing coats. Meanwhile, full flowy trousers and cropped jackets provided options for everyday wear, “It’s important that people don’t just see us as occasionwear,” said Temperley. We can easily picture Kate Middleton donning any of the above and, even more so, Temperley's gorgeous lineup of elegant silk gowns.
Lovely, delicate, elegant . . . in short, Temperley's wedding dresses are the kind dreams are made of. Watch as the head of communications for Temperley London, Madeleine Macey, fills our style director, Noria Morales, in on the new Spring 2013 collection, highlighting a few of Noria's own favorites, including the trend we've been loving most in bridal this season — lace sleeves!
Alice Temperley began designing bridal gowns after her own wedding in 2002, when friends and clients requested her help with their big-day dresses. Since then the Temperley Bridal line has grown into a much-sought-after collection, with gorgeous dresses for the classic bride, the bohemian bride, and everyone in between — her dresses have been worn by Milla Jovovich, Jacquetta Wheeler, and Sophie Dahl, among others.
For Fall 2013, Temperley Bridal launched their Florence collection — a wide variety of sleek, sophisticated dresses that are cut to celebrate the female form and flatter every silhouette. The collection includes 12 new styles ranging from timeless, Grace Kelly-inspired gowns (one of which has an overt vibe of the Duchess of Cambridge) to more decadent, va-va-voom '50s Hollywood shapes. Each one has a delicate blue forget-me-not flower embroidered on the side — a personal "something blue" from Alice Temperley herself.

Temperley London's Moroccan-inspired Spring '13 collection was basically the stuff that dreams are made of. Designer Alice Temperley incorporated beautiful prints, sheer details, and crisp silhouettes for a collection that perfectly fused sweet and sexy. See the full runway show when you push play now.
"I had visions of a late 1950s couture model or a young Sophia Loren, but also modernizing the Temperley Woman, making her uncomplicated and effortlessly beautiful," Alice Temperley said of the collection she offered for Temperley London's Spring 2013. To that end, this was a lineup that hit all the expected Temperley high notes — femininity, romance, embellishment — but was also filled with a surprising sense of playfulness and a focus on separates that felt fresh for the brand.
New Look silhouettes (super-full skirts, nipped waists, collarless jackets) were cut in gauzy fabrics like chiffon and organza, while colors ranged from robin's egg blue to cherry red and aqua. Bold peekaboo stripes, Moorish tile-inspired geometric prints, and lattice-like embroidery added a hint of sensuality and exoticism. "I wanted to maintain a balance between refined elegance and modernity," the designer explained.
For Spring '13, Alice Temperley took us to Morocco with a collection filled with beautiful prints, crisp blouses, and gorgeous sheer detailing. "It’s just more fun, more playful this season," said Temperley. "It’s less about the dress — which is obviously still a really key piece for us — but more about really great separates in high-quality fabrics, and the way you put them together." She did, however, kick off her show with a standout red gown gown featuring sheer striped detailing followed by billowy full skirts —showcasing vibrant multicolored Moroccan-inspired prints — paired with crisp white blouses, and knits with sheer striped skirts. The designer also showed off her penchant for embroidery on silk floral tops and jeweled tulle skirts. Then came the diaphanous gowns; a pale blue halter neck gown with a jewel-encrusted bodice practically floated down the runway, as did the sheer, formfitting gown with floral embroidery. Such fresh and feminine pieces — who wouldn't fall in love with this collection?
