With the Met Gala paying homage to the Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibition, it's no wonder why we've got rock 'n' roll on the brain. Designers like Vivienne Westwood and Jean Paul Gaultier and big-time brands like Balmain and Givenchy all injected a punk-inspired spin into their Spring collections — and while the runway looks can get a little over the top (this is a show, after all), getting in on the trend yourself can be much easier than you think. We like to cull inspiration from the greats — punk pioneers like Debbie Harry, Sid Vicious, Siouxsie Sioux, and The Ramones, who all made superskinny jeans, ripped shirts, cutout dresses, and studded leather de rigueur. To celebrate Monday's big event, we've styled up three punk-inspired outfits that will have you looking like you're straight out of CBGB. Click through to see and shop them now.
Selena Gomez seems to have successfully made the transition from beloved Disney Channel star to breakout big-screen actress, taking on more adult roles and music, like Spring Breakers and her recent hit "Come & Get It" (full disclosure: we can't stop listening!). With her newfound stature comes lots of sleek promotional and red carpet looks from big-name designers like Dolce & Gabbana, Peter Pilotto, and Oscar de la Renta — and we couldn't love Selena's grown-up style more if we tried. We've rounded up some of her coolest looks (so far!), so click through to see them all now.

When we first heard that crop tops were going to be big again for 2013, we had our reservations — it seemed like a look best suited for outdoor music festivals and costume parties — but after seeing the midriff-baring look on the runways at Marc Jacobs, Balenciaga, Costume National, and others, we inevitably changed our tune and are officially smitten with the idea of unleashing our inner Kelly Kapowski. The trend is rooted in '50s-era screen sirens like Sophia Loren, Brigitte Bardot, and Marilyn Monroe but is also dripping with '90s nostalgia — calling to mind fashion-forward TV characters like Kelly Bundy, Donna Martin, and, yes, Ms. Kapowski herself. If you're itching to try the trend this season, then click through for our expert styling tips, as well as three chic ways to wear it.
It was a fun, festive week in the world of social media, and some of our fashionable favorites were sharing their stylish snaps during moments of work and play. Derek Blasberg celebrated his birthday with a bevy of beauties — Nicole Richie, Jessica Alba, Rachel Zoe, and Kirsten Dunst, to be exact — while Coco Rocha got glammed up for a fancy dinner in her honor. Poppy Delevingne shared photos before wrapping up her Coachella festivities, and Selena Gomez had a pretty priceless reaction to a young fan's t-shirt.
Let's get one thing straight: no matter how big of a pet peeve it may be, the bride will always try to convince you that you can "totally wear your bridesmaid dress again!" While it may be a stretch for some dresses, most of the time it's a lot easier than you think. And to prove it, we're taking one quintessential bridesmaid dress — Halston Heritage's strapless crepe maxi dress ($495) — and showing you three chic ways to wear it well after the big day. Click through to see and shop each look now.
If you're tall, then you're probably often faced with the style conundrum of high vs. low heels — and when it comes to your wedding day, you want to be comfortable, confident, and impeccably chic, so the last thing you need to stress out about is your choice of shoes. We all know that you don't have to sacrifice comfort for style on your big day (just look at the rise of sparkly wedding Toms), but for some, the thought of towering over your significant other at the altar isn't one you want to entertain. Though some leggy ladies have no qualms about wearing heels for their nuptials, we're addressing the needs of tall brides-to-be by rounding up a mix of low heels and flats, and also highlighting a few of our favorite lines that carry bigger shoe sizes. Just click through now to see and shop 20 of our favorites.

It's common knowledge that celebrities and designers go hand in hand — and when it comes to a star's special day, they tend to call on the couturiers closest to them to help craft their wedding gown. Valentino Garavani gladly designed a gown for his good friend Anne Hathaway, and John Galliano likely dropped everything to create a dress for his longtime muse Kate Moss. It's also exciting to see designers coming together for the goal of a wedding gown, like Margherita Missoni and Giambattista Valli did to develop her bohemian-chic dress in 2012. Whether it's a classic, romantic style, like Sarah Burton's hand-beaded Alexander McQueen creation for Kate Middleton, or something unexpected and adorable like the Rodarte dress Natalie Portman said her vows in, we love breaking down the design details of some of the most stunning dresses out there. Click through to see 14 of our favorite custom-made wedding gowns, and get the story on the designers that did them.
It was a fun, photo-filled week around the world for some of our snap-happy style setters. Poppy Delevingne hit Italy and sported an envy-inducing Chanel snapback, while Nicole Richie and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley stuck to classic bohemian-cool wide-brimmed hats. Cat Deeley may have topped them all, though, getting in full character at a French restaurant by wearing a sleek beret. Coco Rocha and Hilary Rhoda both hung out in NYC, while Emma Roberts kicked it — in a cool '90s grunge look — at Coachella. Emmy Rossum got to "play dress-up" in Jenny Packham's glamorous gowns, and Miranda Kerr posed with a pair of very lucky pilots after a flight to Australia on Qantas Airways.
Today is Kate Hudson's 34th birthday, and we're celebrating by taking a look at her sexiest editorials over the years. Kate won our hearts in films like Almost Famous and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, but she's also become quite the fashion darling — her free-spirited, boho-cool style has designers like Calvin Klein, Versace, and Roberto Cavalli clamoring to dress her on the red carpet. Lest we forget, she just did a doubleheader in a jaw-dropping Ann Taylor gown on Wednesday and a beautiful Reem Acra number at last night's Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball. Happy birthday, Kate! Click through now to see the birthday girl's most electric fashion editorials yet.
With a tagline like "F*ck weddings," you know you're in for a treat. Stone Fox Bride released its Spring 2013 lookbook this week, featuring designer Pamela Love lip-locking with none other than Jemima Kirke — also known as Jessa Johansson from Girls. While it may be considered a strong statement (with same-sex marriage laws being debated as we speak), it also simply highlights the elegance and grace of two women together, wearing beautifully crafted dresses.
If you're a bride who essentially hates all things bridal, then Stone Fox Bride is your go-to for beautiful nonwedding wedding dresses. The brand eschews "anything puffy or fluffy, stiff flowers, and pink cupcakes" and is more for the backyard barbecue bride than the stuffy princess type. We love how the line celebrates "looking like a more radiant version of your regular self," and prioritizes being cool and comfortable over everything else. Each custom-made dress is hand-draped in New York and made with fabrics sourced from Italy, India, and France. Stone Fox Bride has a plethora of colors to choose — you can even dream up your own ombré combination — in addition to tons of lengths, silhouettes, and styles. With evocative style names like The Frida, The June Carter, and, of course, The Jemima, each gown has a cool, laid-back personality of its own. If you prefer floral crowns to traditional veils and long and lacy rather than big and poufy, then this is the bridal line for you. Click through now to see all of Stone Fox Bride's stunning Spring gowns.
Today is Victoria Beckham's 39th birthday! When we think of impeccably chic women, we picture Victoria strutting hard in a pencil skirt, sunglasses, and sky-high heels. The fashion lover-cum-designer has nailed her signature style and often leaves us wondering: how does she do it? If you've done your research, as we have, then you'll realize this is a woman with a serious commitment to her look. While there have been undeniable changes in her fashionable aesthetic (like breaking her own no-flats rule), VB never does anything halfway; she rocks it head to toe. Here's a fashion flashback dedicated to her on her big day. Happy birthday to the fashion artist formerly known as Posh!
If runway collections could go viral, Peter Pilotto's stunning 2013 offerings would be the most-viewed video on YouTube. The British designer's eye-catching, impactful prints and dramatic silhouettes have become the cool-girl go-to for fun party pieces — and whether they come from Spring or Fall collections, it's no secret as to why they work so well. Stylish ladies like Miranda Kerr, Selena Gomez, Emma Watson, and more have all hit the scene wearing the flirty frocks and peplum pieces, begging the question: do designing duo Peter Pilotto and Christopher De Vos ever get it wrong? Click through now to see some of Peter Pilotto's biggest high-profile fans.
We've practically grown up with Emma Watson. From her young start as Harry Potter's BFF and magical muggle Hermione to her turn as Burberry's campaign stunner to skimpy outfits and faux tattoos on the set of The Bling Ring, this beautiful Brit has accomplished a lot in very little time. She turns 23 today, and to fete her impressively stylish career thus far, we've rounded up her most gorgeous editorials yet. Her chameleon-like beauty — hello, chic pixie cut! — and English charm can be spotted in the pages of Vogue Italia, Vanity Fair, Harper's Bazaar, and Marie Claire — and we have a feeling that she's just getting started. In honor of Emma's 23rd birthday, we're taking a look at 50 of her most breathtaking fashion spreads. Click through to see each one, and let us know your favorites in the comments.
Not only are we rounding up the best desert style from each day, we've also followed our favorite celebrities as they shared their coolest Coachella snaps through social media. Diane Kruger posed in head-to-toe H&M, while Alessandra Ambrosio sat poolside in mirrored sunglasses on day two. Alexa Chung DJed the Lacoste party in her usual brand of cool-girl style, and The Carrie Diaries' AnnaSophia Robb practiced her aim in colorful stripes.
The always adorable Emma Watson hit the stage to accept her Trailblazer Award during the MTV Movie Awards tonight, and naturally, she looked gorgeous. Watson sported a painterly cutout Maxime Simoëns minidress and Proenza Schouler platform sandals, making for a fresh, flirty look. She opted for a swept-back, relaxed updo and just a few thin silver rings. Birthday girl Emma — she turns 23 tomorrow — definitely looks ready to get the party started. What do you think of Emma's award-show ensemble?

Selena Gomez quite literally struck gold on the red carpet at the MTV Movie Awards. Gomez — who will be hitting the stage to perform her new single "Come and Get It" tonight — arrived in a gold fringed minidress from Julien Macdonald's Fall '13 collection. She paired the long-sleeved frock with sparkly champagne-colored peep-toe heels and gold woven earrings, which perfectly complemented her cool braided hairstyle. How do you feel about Selena's gilded look?

Zoe Saldana has arrived! The actress hit the red carpet at the MTV Movie Awards looking sleek and sophisticated from head to toe. Saldana showed some leg in a floor-length lace floral skirt from Givenchy's Fall '13 collection, which she paired with a fitted black long-sleeved top and ankle-strap Jimmy Choo Kalpa heels. We love the simplicity of her look. Even though the skirt is inherently sexy — with its sheer panels and thigh-high slit — Saldana tempered it with a clean, unfussy shirt and minimal accessories, opting only for a cool emerald snake ring. Are you feeling her look tonight?
