On Wednesdays, Amal Clooney Wears Pink—Shop the Look (for Less)

For most first-time moms, pregnancy wouldn’t be the choice time to experiment with daring trends, but Amal Clooney is no ordinary mom. The lawyer, who is expecting twins with hubby George, stepped out on Wednesday night in N.Y.C., wearing an all-pink look that has us seriously considering a shopping spree.

The mom-to-be swathed her baby bump in a pink velvet dress with a brick-like pattern and a cashmere overcoat from the Bottega Veneta Cruise Collection. She polished off her cheery look with a matching pink lip and black pumps, ushering in spring in (almost) head-to-toe color.

From Runway to Rihanna’s Way: See How the Star Puts Her Spin on Fashion’s Trickiest Looks

Rihanna—what can’t the woman pull off? Her sartorial power is so great, so unapologetic in its outrageousness, she can make being nearly nude (you know, except for a mesh encasing made of something like 200,000-plus Swarovski crystals) the most glamorous look ever. So when you factor in actual clothing, you know to expect the wildly unexpected.

A leather jacket isn’t just a leather jacket, but a cape draped over a Princess Diana tee with cut-offs and denim chaps. She isn’t going to simply slip on a floral-print dress and call it a day. No, Rihanna’s going to layer it over a gold chain harness and style it with giant hoops and platform brogues. And for a night out? Any one of fall’s transitional jackets won’t cut it. In Rihanna’s world, a cool breeze is the perfect excuse to break out a giant fur heart-shaped Saint Laurent cape, one of the most memorable looks from Hedi Slimane’s final collection for the brand.

All of this only serves as proof that Rihanna can take any look—the trickiest, the most intimidating, the seemingly most unwearable—and make it her own. Thus, we present a runway-to-Rihanna-way study: a side-by-side comparison of her “real-world” application of fashion’s greatest hits.

15 Stunning Backstage Photos from the Chanel Haute Couture Show

Warning: Brace yourself for an overwhelming amount of prettiness. Couture Fashion Week may be over, but these behind-the-scenes images from backstage at Chanel Haute Couture’s spring 2017 show are so over-the-top incredible, it’s worth the revisit.

In case you forgot: Lily-Rose Depp had the honor of being the Chanel Couture bride. And while the sweeping pale-pink dress that featured a mille-feuille of tiered ruffles was stunning from afar, it’s—surprise!—even better up close (and a thousand times more in person). Also beautiful up close: feather detailing that was painstakingly embroidered on one by one, and the thousands of shiny, glittery paillettes and beads. In short, it’s a lot of very pretty people wearing a lot of very pretty clothes. Take a look and see for yourself.

There’s a Party on Blake Lively’s Feet and We Can’t Look Away

We keep a close eye on Blake Lively anytime she steps out. From memorable family outings to red carpet events, the actress always puts on a flawless display.

On Wednesday, she made it known that her style prowess extends to the streets, too. The mother-of-two was spotted outside the L’Oreal Paris Women of Worth Gala in Toronto in the perfect off-duty look: a white tee and cropped step-hem jeans, paired with a classic navy wool coat and her signature tousled waves. Casual, chic, perfect for the transitional weather, right? The self-professed shoe lover threw us for a loop, though, saving the best part of her outfit for her feet with attention-grabbing Christian Louboutin Octavian flats (in black, here).

The leopard-print loafers feature red piping, spikes on the white apron front, and a band bejeweled with Swarovski crystals and mixed metals. Straight-up fierce.

Alicia Vikander Stars in Louis Vuitton’s 2017 Cruise Campaign

Louis Vuitton’s latest Cruise campaign will give you all the travel inspo you need. Starring Alicia Vikander, the campaign was shot in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil by famed photographer Patrick Demarchelier, and features strong pops of color and the classic designs the fashion house is known for.

The Oscar winner shows off two of the new handbags in the collection—the emblematic Twist and Capucine. In one snap, Vikander gives a sultry gaze to the camera, as she walks amongst palm trees in a black-and-white top and a belted navy-and-black skirt. An embroidered black handbag is on her arm, complete with red and white stitching and the signature silver LV twistable emblem.

In another photo, the 28-year-old actress walks along the shore as the wind blows her brunette locks and exposes her dangling black-and-white Louis Vuitton earrings. She wears a white crop top and high-waisted white shorts, and makes a statement with the bold, color-blocked Twist bag on her arm, which also has the silver LV twistable emblem.

The campaign follows the brand’s epic 2017 Cruise presentation, which took place in the Niteroi Contemporary Art Museum.

Bella Hadid Hits the Runway at Christian Dior’s Fall Couture Show

While Bella Hadid’s big sister Gigi spent her holiday weekend hitting the shores of Rhode Island at gal pal Taylor Swift’s star-studded Fourth of July bash, 19-year-old Bella continued her milestone romp across the couture shows in Paris.

On Monday, the brunette beauty put forward her catwalk prowess in Christian Dior’s fall 2016 couture show—hands down one of the week’s hottest tickets. She stood out among the dozens of models in a one-of-a-kind black dress with a deep-V neckline, oversize shoulders, intricate embroidery, and matching, comfortable gladiator-like flat thong sandals. Her hair featured a slicked -back center part and the new face of Dior Makeup also sported a bold cat-eye.

Back in June, the star joined fellow model Kendall Jenner at Givenchy’s show in Paris, where the two made headlines with their short pixie-style ‘dos as they lent their struts to the brand’s spring 2017 menswear runway.

Keep up the good work, Bella!

Katy Perry Was a Human Highlighter at Wango Tango

Katy Perry brought the sunshine to Los Angeles’ Wango Tango music festival this weekend. The “Bon Appetit” singer shone—quite literally—on stage in an itty-bitty neon-yellow, sequined Adam Selman dress and body suit. That’s a lot of look!

Perry accessorized with pastel pink garter-leggings, elbow-length gloves and futuristic neon boots. Adding to the effect was a clear Zana Bayne belt that connected to a choker around her neck—sort of like a sci-fi dog harness.

VIDEO: Katy Perry Talks About Her Conservative Upbringing

To shield her eyes, the star used white rimmed sunglasses; and as not to clash with her look, she used a yellow microphone.

The singer, who is known for her sugar-inspired and candy-colored outfits, did not shy away from her favorite theme. She brought the pizzazz both on stage at Wango Tango and during the event’s red carpet. Before the show, Perry strutted her stuff for the paparazzi in another neon yellow look. This time the “Roar” singer wore a modest-looking micropleat dress in the same eye- catching yellow hue.

The long-sleeved Issey Miyake dress featured cool gray sections throughout.

Continuing to promote her new song with Migos entitled “Bon Appetit”, Perry shared a forkful of cherry pie with a KIIS FM presenter and seemed extra cautious not to spill on her brightly-colored ensemble while talking about her new record. “For me the whole record is this 360 degree liberation,” Perry said. “Mental liberation, sexual liberation, negative liberation, spiritual liberation.”

We can’t wait to hear more about her liberation theory on her new album.
