When it comes to pulling out all the stops for an event, no one does it better than Jessica Alba. Frocking up for the Golden Globes, Jess knocked it outta the park in a peachy Oscar de la Renta gown, paired with the most amazing Harry Winston diamond necklace. It was Hollywood glam at its very best. Upping the sex appeal a few notches, Miranda Kerr hit the after-parties with a divine, berry-hued, split-to-the-thigh Zuhair Murad gown, while Emily Blunt took an edgier road in a slightly-muted gold Michael Kors number. But it wasn't all glam red carpet outfits — supermodel Candice Swanepoel rocked out in an Iron Maiden tee and Lucy Hale showcased perfect jetsetter style.

It may be prime time for celebrity getaways to beachy locales, but the celebration for Derek Blasberg's latest venture (a chic little line of stationery for Opening Ceremony) drew out something of a style crowd in NYC last night. Blasberg's buddies were in a range of winter-appropriate ensembles to show their support — nothing too glam or over the top; just a mix of easy but polished looks from the likes of Rachel Roy, Nicky Hilton, and Hilary Rhoda. Hilary showed off her mile-long stems in a pair of black trousers, which she topped with a tweedy jacket, Nicky gave a staple knit a cool-girl twist, and Leigh Lezark proved just how eye-catching a leopard-print coat really is.

Finger or ring bracelets, hand armour or harnesses, whatever you want to call them, these ring-meet-bracelet combinations are the perfect accessory to add to your wardrobe this Summer. Celebs like Erin Wasson and Nicole Richie have been early adopters of the trend thanks to their respective Low Luv and House of Harlow jewellery lines, and now a range of high to low accessory brands have followed suit with their own interpretation of the double-duty arm candy. Whether you have a preference for delicate gold chains or something a little more heavy-duty and embellished, we've got you covered in our edit of today's accessory of the week.
Is there anything sexier than a maroon lipstick colour? Three ladies stepped out this week showing off the dramatically dark hue. Designer Rachel Roy paired a semi-matte colour with a seriously smoky eye at the CFDA Awards. Christina Ricci showed up to the same event wearing a more sheer shade, and actress Sarah Hyland gave her maroon lipstick a little gloss. Three different ways to wear the colour — but which one do you like best?
While Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart made the rounds in Madrid, their co-stars kept busy with the Breaking Dawn Part 2 premiere in NYC. Twihards everywhere finally got the long-anticipated finale to the Twilight Saga when it hit cinemas on Thursday, but we've been more preoccupied with what the film's cast are wearing on the red carpet. Yesterday, starlets Ashley Greene, Nikki Reed, and Elizabeth Reaser bared a decidedly sexier side, with their respective gowns and party dresses. Ashley showed off a moody Donna Karan Atelier gown with a figure-flaunting bustier, while Nikki turned up the glamour in a fringed and beaded Naeem Khan confection. But it wasn't just about the film's leading vampires ladies — celebs like Nicky Hilton, Rachel Roy, and Lindsay Ellingson glammed up to celebrate the final Twilight chapter.

We'll always be loyal to our skinny trousers, but there's just something about a fluid pair of wide-leg pants that we can't get enough of. We saw them on the runways in NYC at Rachel Zoe and Altuzarra, and they all brought a little something extra to the table — whether worn layered with chunky knits and sleek blazers or with a top tucked in, it showed a fresh, '70s-inspired silhouette. Celebrities have also proven to be fans of the clean, languid look this season. Stars like Caroline Issa, Emma Roberts, Rachel Roy, and more have all put their own cool spin on the trend, and we're breaking down how each of their outfits work for your real-life daily routine.

With Rachel Roy, the best part may just be the fact that with every piece, you have the sense that you could easily wear it too — and, hopefully, look just as chic.

There's a sense that you could shop your entire wardrobe all right here (including bags and jewels). Roy's covered all the bases, from more casual short sets and knits to your more sophisticated suiting, all with the same effortlessness and playfulness that relies on easy cuts and bright prints and colour.
