Leopard print is having a moment — on Lily Collins's accessories. The connective thread between these two London looks is an all-black palette and a pop of fierce print, on Lily's heels and clutch, respectively. There's more than a few reasons why we love this outfit strategy. For starters, leopard-print accessories have a statement effect that can take your basics from zero to 60. You might not be ready to follow Lily's lead into crop-top territory, but we highly suggest you opt for her newest styling strategy. Test-drive the look with our editors' picks below — and yes, perking up your LBD (or even jeans and a tee!) is that easy.
Who took a bigger risk on the red carpet at the premiere of The Mortal Instruments last night — Julianne Hough or Lily Collins? Lily has become quite comfortable with showing her midriff on the red carpet; this is just another look in a series of belly-baring ensembles the actress has worn while promoting her new film. However, Julianne typically plays it a little safer in more conservative silhouettes and light colors, so we were impressed to see her rocking both red and sheer. What's your favorite from the night? Let us know below!

One of the best things about Lily Collins is that she isn't afraid to take beauty risks on the red carpet. Whether she's going classic, vampy, or even bubblegum sweet, you never know what you're going to get with Lily . . . in the best way possible. But at last night's premiere of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, Lily absolutely stunned. Her signature brows were just slightly filled in and perfectly framed her bronzy eye shadow look that flicked ever so slightly into a cat eye. But the cornerstone of Lily's makeup look was her red lips, which were reminiscent of the lipstick look at Kenneth Cole's Fall 2013 show. Slightly lighter on the inner part of her lips, the color diffused into a rich, deep crimson toward the outer corners.
Lily's hair just added to her already-gorgeous look. Half up and tightly pulled back on the sides, the ends of her hair were gently woven over each other in the back for an origami-inspired fold. And on her nails? Bronze polish that was lightly textured into a crosshatch pattern. We're giving Lily's look a 10 out of 10. See the whole look from every angle below!
A whole host of Hollywood P.Y.T.s came out last night to celebrate the LA premiere of The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. Ashley Greene rocked a white minidress and nude pumps, while Bella Thorne picked a graphic black-and-white printed frock, hoop earrings, and black and brown sandals. Julianne Hough stood out in cherry red slacks and a beaded top, carrying a see-through clutch that flashed her evening essentials (is that a Chanel compact and white iPhone we spy?). The look might be proof she's a Kate Middleton style fan: everything is from the Fall 2013 collection of Duchess-approved Jenny Packham (save for her Stuart Weitzman sandals).
Winding things up was the film's leading lady, Lily Collins, who smoldered in a one-shoulder cream style with slashes at the waist and chest from Cushnie et Ochs's Resort 2014 collection. It might've been Lily's big night, but that doesn't mean she has to take home best-dressed honors. Vote below and tell us whose look impressed you.
Lily Collins, Hailee Steinfeld, and Kerry Washington always look fit to print, but for tonight's Teen Choice red carpet, they especially stood out in daring graphic motifs. There's no doubting they all looked great, but the real question is: which pattern caught your eye?

If you're still tapping your feet, waiting to break out your bold lipstick hues, quit waiting! If Amanda Seyfried and Lily Collins are any indication, now is the perfect time to bust out your blood-red hues . . . as long as you know how to wear them. Instead of the intensely smoky eyes that usually accompany bold lips in the Fall, both ladies opted for barely-there shadow and bottom-heavy eyeliner. Amanda smudged a metallic bronze beneath her lower lash line, while Lily opted for a classic black.
Keeping with the balancing act, both ladies swept a subtle shadow on their lids, which opened their eyes up just enough. Finally, both Amanda and Lily donned their version of a bold brow. Balance is the key to acing this look now. So as long as you keep that in mind, there's no reason to neglect the vampy hues of Fall for a second longer.
Lily Collins is on tour to promote her new project, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, and that means she'll be sporting a lot of different daytime beauty looks to inspire you in the coming weeks. So far, she's mixed it up wearing both bright and neutral palettes that are perfect for Summer. Earlier this week in Chicago, Lily wore tousled waves with a deep side part complemented with a bright pink lipstick. Then, yesterday, she hit Miami with a more demure makeup look paired with a middle-parted, straight hairstyle. Either way, Lily's perfectly manicured brows have us mesmerized, but which casual-cool style do you prefer?
Stars made their way onto sets to work this week all over the world. Matt Damon took the reins on Thursday in Southern England for scenes from The Monuments Men, and Katie Holmes perked up with a cup of coffee in NYC before heading to the Mania Days set. The cast of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 worked through the long weekend and well into the week, during which Andrew Garfield bonded with his Spider-Man mini me, and his girlfriend, Emma Stone, focused on a few solo shoots.
