While the world tries to figure out whether or not Drew Barrymore is pregnant, we're focused on the fabulous white printed coat she wore while running errands in LA over the weekend with fiancé Will Kopelman. She could have worn any jacket — leather, blazer, hoodie, etc. — but instead she opted to take her casual-cool look to sophisticated heights by sporting a fresh long Dries Van Noten coat. Drew, and eight other celebs like Leelee Sobieski and Katie Holmes, prove that coats aren't only for cold weather. In fact, they can instantly transform a Spring ensemble from stylish to fashion forward. Step inside to see a handful of celebs wearing springtime outerwear, to draw inspiration from them, and to shop our favorite outerwear picks.
We're only about 30 days into Spring, but it seems some of Hollywood's young stars are looking ahead several months when it comes to their lip looks. In the past week, everyone from Scarlett Johansson (in Dolce & Gabbana lipstick in Devil, applied by celebrity makeup artist Emma Lovell), Ivanka Trump, and Leelee Sobieski have donned autumnal-inspired hues. And while these russet shades are typically reserved for times when the leaves are changing and there's a nip in the air, all three stars proved that there's never any harm in thinking ahead. Your time to vote: Who spiced things up most with her cinnamon stick-toned lip color?
>> From Milan to Tokyo to Palm Springs, the week's events were as diverse as they were far flung — and each locale provided its fair share of style to inspire. At Coachella, some of the week's major style moments were had by festivalgoers Kate Bosworth, Emma Watson, and Dree Hemingway; Bosworth and Watson each sported Mulberry, while Hemingway opted for Dolce & Gabbana. In Tokyo, at the opening of Tommy Hilfiger's store in Ometesando, Jessica Alba wore what proved to be one of the week's biggest trends: a sleek menswear-inspired suit; similar styles were seen on both Emma Roberts and Coco Rocha elsewhere during the week as well.
Stella McCartney's designs were in heavy rotation at the premiere of her father's My Valentine video series in Los Angeles; Miranda Kerr and Gwen Stefani were among those who wore looks from the designer. But perhaps no one had a chicer week than Leelee Sobieski. The statuesque star wore a flowing Boy. By Band of Outsiders gown to the premiere of her new film The Five-Year Engagement on Tuesday, then on Wednesday turned up to the Vanity Fair Tribeca Film Festival party in a dramatic Jil Sander frock — and looked majorly stunning in both.

While blue hair may be having a moment in the fun, when it comes to makeup, orange- and gold-toned shadows are having a moment in the sun. We pretty much already expected the tangerine-inspired cosmetics trend to take flight thanks to it being Pantone's color of the year, but we didn't realize just how much it would soar. Not just limited to a straight-up reddish-orange tone, the hue has been spotted in various interpretations, but when worn around the eyes, it has more of an edgy quality about it.
Take Solange Knowles, for instance, who applied tangerine shadow and lipstick for a bold yet cohesive effect. Then there was Leelee Sobieski who stirred things up even more, her vibrant red lip color lending an added pop to her orange sherbet-shaded eye look. For Dakota Fanning, though, it was all about ethereal style, as she offset her halo-esque headband with coordinating shimmery gold and apricot eyes. In the immortal words of the Brady's, "It's a Sunshine Day," indeed.
Last night's Vanity Fair Tribeca Film Festival party attracted a fashionable crowd. Designers including Diane von Furstenberg, Tory Burch, and Donna Karan attended the fete, alongside celebrities like Catherine Zeta-Jones, Dakota Fanning, and Helena Christensen. But the standout of the evening definitely goes to Leelee Sobieski, who took a risk in a white, minimalist floor-length gown from Jil Sander's Spring 2012 collection. She emulated the runway look, complementing the V-neck collared dress with a slicked-back hairstyle. This outfit is fit for a modern bride looking to try an off-the-rack find. See Leelee's wedding-worthy gown in today's Fab Flash! On Allison McNamara: Simone jacket, Topshop blouse, H&M earrings.
Stars like Dakota Fanning, Leelee Sobieski, and Catherine Zeta-Jones gathered last night to celebrate the start of the Tribeca Film Festival at Vanity Fair's kickoff party. The bash was held at NYC's State Supreme Courthouse and many of the celebs posed for pictures outside before heading in to start the fun with editor in chief Graydon Carter. Leelee, who arrived with her designer husband Adam Kimmel, wore a white gown from Jil Sander. Dakota, one of the festival's judges this year, was pretty in a pink Lanvin. Catherine broke from working on The Bitter Pill to throw on a silver Michael Kors number and let loose alongside husband Michael Douglas. Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner also popped by to say hello during a date night, when their daughter Arabella stayed home. Today marks the official opening of Robert De Niro's 11-year-old cinema event — check out our roundup of highlights from the Tribeca Film Festival since its inception in 2001.
>> Dakota Fanning, Lily Cole, Helena Christensen, and Diane von Furstenberg were among those who turned up to celebrate the start of the Tribeca Film Festival at Vanity Fair's annual kickoff party Tuesday night. Held at the New York State Supreme Courthouse — the steps of which glowed with thousands of tiny LED lights — the event was filled with nearly as many striking styles as it was big-name stars. Helena Christensen, Tory Burch, and Leelee Sobieski looked Spring-perfect in crisp white dresses; Sobieski, in a full-skirted Jil Sander gown, was especially stunning. Dakota Fanning looked charming in a hot pink Pre-Fall 2012 Lanvin cocktail frock, while even a leg injury and crutch couldn't stop Donna Karan from looking the picture of elegance in black layers and sculptural jewels. See all those — plus more of the evening's best looks — right here, in the slideshow.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen divided to conquer NYC yesterday. Mary-Kate had her hands full as she left an office building and hopped into a car, and Ashley, who was wearing plaid TEXTILE Elizabeth and James pants, met up with pal Leelee Sobieski, who has a new show NYC 22 debuting soon, for lunch. The Olsens are hanging out in the Big Apple tending to their various fashion ventures. They're also among the many celebrities who love their animals on National Pets Day, which is today! Ashley's recently returned from a visit to LA, where she attended the Santa Monica Museum of Art's Precognito Gala in March. Both she and Mary-Kate just spoke about their jet-setting lives and the work they share in the April edition of Elle UK.
With all the bold, subversive prints we saw on the Spring '12 runways, it's no surprise that some celebs are getting in on the trend a little early. We spotted a few of our fashion favorites in vibrant mixed-media patterns on the red carpet recently, and we truly can't get enough of them. Alexa Chung and Leelee Sobieski both stepped out in Mary Katrantzou's signature elaborate prints, pairing their respective frocks with black heels and minimal jewelry, while Kate Bosworth attended an InStyle event in a stunning Peter Pilotto sheath dress, styled with cobalt blue pumps and a nude clutch. What's great about each piece is that it stands out immediately, and needs little styling; with so much intricate detailing to focus on, it's best to keep shoes and accessories simple. To work the trend yourself, check out our tips below — and then get shopping.
- Mixed motif pieces can work for day or evening; a printed blouse looks office-appropriate when tucked into a slim-fitting pencil skirt, while a bold dress can turn heads out at night with a great pair of neutral heels.
- Keep accessories to a minimum, if not nonexistent. A print this eye-catching needs little else to compete with. Opt for a simple envelope clutch or chain-strap purse, and one cocktail ring or thin bangle.
- Choose a printed silhouette that flatters your best feature. If you love your legs, pick a dress or skirt that has the most ornate detailing near the hemline. If you want to show off your arms or décolletage, a piece with the most printing at the top will help do the trick.
New York Fashion Week is starting to wind down, but yesterday boasted some of the biggest shows of the season and Rachel Zoe was front row to check out Proenza Schouler's Spring 2012 collection. The runway was covered in shag carpet, and the models strutted down the catwalk in Proenza Schouler eelskin skirts and prints. Rachel was joined in the audience by Alexa Chung, Pharrell Williams, and Alicia Keys. It's been an action-packed week for Rachel Zoe, who has taken in tons of shows alongside husband Rodger, and she also showed off her own Rachel Zoe collection with a private presentation. Rachel and Rodger's baby son, Skyler, was front and center to check out his mom's hard work. Rachel admitted she was "terrified" for her first-ever fashion week presentation, but it went off without a hitch.
