Last night, Jessica Biel arrived to the premiere of Runner Runner in an ultrasleek black and white look from Dolce & Gabbana. Enhancing the menswear vibe, she accessorized her double-breasted suit and white button-up with a black briefcase-inspired Mark Cross bag. But while her shawl collar jacket and slim pants may borrow from the boys, its expert tailoring — and her choice to rock the look with a pair of heels — ensured that Biel kept the overall feeling sexy, feminine, and powerful. This is definitely a departure for Biel's red carpet style, which usually incorporates softer, feminine dresses.
Before hitting the Billboard Music Awards red carpet in blue sequins yesterday, Taylor Swift showed us how to look every bit as cool, all while maintaining a feminine flair. During a Beverly Hills shopping session with a friend, the singer tucked a printed top with an always-adorable Peter Pan collar into a burgundy pleated miniskirt. She then pulled in the perfect accessories: her favorite Mark Cross messenger bag, tan woven oxfords, and black Ray-Ban Wayfarers for an edgier finish. Next time you hit the retail circuit, reference Taylor's girlie-cum-cool creation and don't leave home without your favorite add-ons. To get similar pieces, shop our picks below.
As Fall is starting to settle in, celebrities around the globe are making the most of their skin-baring styles and layering up in plush furs and warm fabrics. This week, Whitney Port pushed the envelope in blush crushed velvet trousers and lizard strap Alexander Wang pumps at a Tacori party in LA, Kim Kardashian showed some leg in a black leather mini and laser-cut Jimmy Choo sandals in Miami, and Olivia Palermo gave a lesson in layering, working a reversible leather and fur vest and cozy knit sweater, both by Zadig & Voltaire, in NYC. And we can't forget Ashley Madekwe and Taylor Swift, who donned noteworthy looks of their own. Get a closer look at our style standouts, then shop their looks for yourself.
Taylor Swift was all smiles in a blue plaid button-down, knee-patch Ralph Lauren riding pants ($290), and her staple Mark Cross satchel ($2,350) while leaving her hotel in London.
