Kristin Cavallari made her way through security at LAX last night with her son, Camden Cutler. She had her hands full with a stroller, baby essentials, and her new dark gray Hermès Birkin bag that was a push present from her fiancé, Jay Cutler. Baby Camden isn't yet 2 months old, but he's already becoming a pro at traveling. Kristin's been in LA for the past week shooting her upcoming Chinese Laundry footwear campaign, as well as making a cameo on FX's The League.
Kristin and Camden caught an outbound flight from LA to NYC, while Jay and the Chicago Bears put on a solid show defeating the Dallas Cowboys 34-18 in Texas. Jay's been catching some heat for his on-field antics, and last night was no different. He was spotted blowing off the Bears' offensive coordinator, Mike Tice, but following the game, Cutler laughed off the sideline incident, saying, "You guys have got to sell papers and it's hard out there. But we can't blow up every headline. Things happen in football games. Just because I walk off and go get water, that doesn't mean much."
With the chill starting to come on, collared dresses and tops are a perfect way to stay simultaneously warm and stylish. But this Fall, don't go for just any old plain collar; choose collars with embellishments just like Natalie Portman's Vionnet look, Kristin Cavallari's sheer black dress with gold-tipped collar, and Miranda Cosgrove's plaid Juicy Couture number with gold studded collar. If it gets extra chilly in your city, wear a cozy sweater over your collared piece, but be sure to show off that embellished collar. Whether you prefer studs, rhinestones, or metal tips, shop our favorite embellished-collar dresses and tops below to get the celebrity-inspired look this season and beyond.

Black leather skirts are abundant in Hollywood, but oxblood is quickly becoming the It color for Fall, which is why we particularly love Kristin's choice.
