11 All-Black Outfits That Are Anything But Boring

Graphic Design: Bold Patterns Sizzle This Summer

There are a handful of seasonal trends that we can predict -- pastels in spring, jewel tones in fall.

They're wearing bold graphic prints, unusual shapes and mixing quirky patterns with even crazier ones. The end result? Head-turning, memorable looks we never saw coming.   read more

But if you can't get on board with the denim onesies you wore as a child (to each her own), halter dresses, the latest '90s trend to reemerge on the scene, may be more up your alley.   read more

To the Point: Embroidery Is the Newest Spring Trend

Embroidery usually brings up thoughts of stuffy tapestry or grandma's hand-made knick-knacks, but spring's red carpet is shining a decidedly more stylish light on the stitching technique.

The Best Beauty Looks from the MTV Movie Awards

This weekend, our Instagrams were flooded with pictures of flower crowns, cutoffs and tribal face paint thanks to Coachella. But interspersed with all of the crazy bohemian images from Indio, Calif., was a refreshing dose of red carpet glamour -- thanks to the MTV Movie Awards. The coolest young celebrities took a time out from all that dancing in the desert to celebrate the films that might not have been Oscar-worthy, but were still some of the hottest flicks of the year. And their red carpet looks did not disappoint. From Riri's gorgeous curls to Lupita's smoky eye, we rounded up the best beauty looks and the latest beauty trends that were making the red carpet rounds last night.   read more

Now, This Is How You Wear a Crop Top

After flight cancellations, subzero temperatures and polar vortexes, spring can't come soon enough. Once the sun decides to grace us with its presence, it's tempting to shed every layer and flaunt as much skin as possible, but keep in mind that spring -- your closet's transitional period -- is not the same as spring break. Take a cue from the celebrities making their post-awards-season rounds. Instead of pairing their belly-baring tops with thigh-skimming skirts or cutoffs, they opt for modest bottoms to slowly transition the look into spring. Need proof that the crop trend can be less Coachella-swimsuit-cover-up and more sophisticated chic? Click ahead for some serious style inspiration on how to master a tasteful pop of skin.   read more

Oscars 2014: All The Red Carpet Looks You Need To See

The year's awards season has been a Cinderella story in the making for Lupita Nyong'o, so it was only fitting that her Prada gown (which she helped design, naturally) was reminiscent of a Disney princess, from the fairytale pale blue to matching headband.   read more

Buckle Up: Belts are Running the Red Carpet

The red carpet has range. From movie premieres to full-fledged galas, you see virtually every style, accessory and hair trend make an appearance. But once awards season gets rolling, things can get a bit more predictable: Heavy on the floor length gowns, blinding bling is the norm and we're given two or three daring looks that go down in red carpet hall of fame (see: Bjork's swan getup and Gwyneth's pink Ralph Lauren dress.) But in the midst of the all the haute couture and Louboutins, a dark horse of accessories has emerged as the latest trend: belts. No fancy capelets, daring thigh-high slits or weird hemlines, but an accessory everyone has in their closet.   read more

The Hottest Hair and Beauty Trends From the SAG Awards

The SAG awards gave us three different takes on the 60s bouffant that we can't wait to try: Abigail Breslin did Bridgette proud in a retro half-updo, "New Girl" actress Hannah Simone highlighted her bangs with an voluminous updo and Julie Bowen paired her bouffant with a flirty ponytail.   read more

Pencil It In: Celebs Love This Slim Silhouette

Over the peplum yet? The A-list certainly seems to be. Everywhere you look, celebs are stepping out in super-sleek and fitted midi dresses that would do "Mad Men" bombshell Joan Harris proud. Short mini dresses are the obvious choice for a sexy look and floor-length numbers are a given in the classic glamour department, but celebs are realizing that midi dresses fall somewhere in between and deliver the best of both worlds.   read more

Who Says It's Too Cold To Show Some Skin?

Subtract the last-minute shopping and back-to-back food comas, and you'll come to realize that the holiday season is all about the details: precisely placed trimming, crease-less gift wrapping, meticulously frosted sugar cookies. So it's only fitting that starlets have been decorating the red carpet with the most detailed and delicate fabric of all: lace. Whether it's on a floor-length ball gown or a two-piece suit, lace is everywhere right now. Luckily for stylists and those of us on trend-watch, the pattern is so intricate, each celeb's get-up is completely unique -- like its own special snowflake.   read more

Fancy Pants: Trendy Trousers Take Over

When wintertime rolls around, starlets typically replace flirty minis with floor-length evening gowns and maxis when they hit the red carpet. Even though it makes perfect sense, the seasonal switchover is a bit expected. That's why we were pleasantly surprised to find that lately, celebrities have been dipping their toes into menswear, and choosing tailored trousers to pair with their heels. The end result? A refreshing, sophisticated look that is every bit as polished as the average red-carpet dress.   read more

Reasons You Should Be Wearing White Right Now

Of all the colors in the spectrum, white gets hit the hardest when it comes to fashion rules: Don't wear it to a wedding unless you're the bride (then by all means, do); don't wear it if you plan on eating marinara or drinking chianti, and perhaps most famously, don't even think about wearing it after Labor Day.   read more

Runway vs. Red Carpet: Who Worked It Best?

If you're not a model, socialite, buyer, or designer, New York Fashion Week's runway shows are less about wearing sunglasses indoors and sitting front row, and more about openly gawking, ooh-ing, and ahh-ing at what comes down the catwalk. A runway show is a show after all, and while we can appreciate a quality splurge every now then, we're not exactly planning to fill our online shopping carts or completely restock our closets with these pricey pieces.   read more
