Come now, admit it. You outfit repeat. Whether you have that go-to outfit to pull on Monday mornings (or Friday nights) or you own that signature piece you can’t stop wearing, we know you do it too. In fact, despite having walk-in wardrobes (and stylists) that any fashion girl would kill for, celebrities do it as well. Yep, even Miranda Kerr, Jessica Hart, Olivia Palermo, Kim Kardashian, Cara Delevingne and Keira Knightley recycle like the rest of us.
Hollywood glamazon Keira Knightley wore her vintage Chanel wedding dress not once, but three times, taking out our prize for the most laid-back bride ever. And with outfits that amazing, why not get your wear out of them? Head into the gallery to see all the celebrities who re-wear their favourite pieces time, and time again.
Brisbane, does it feel like forever ago that we announced Topshop and Topman were setting up shop? Well, we've got some more exciting news! Today, Topshop opened their largest Australian store to date on the corner of Elizabeth and Albert Streets (where Borders used to be). Spread across three levels, the grand 2,200sqm store houses the same Unique, Boutique, mainline trend, footwear, basics, denim and accessories collections that have been hugely successful in both its Sydney and Melbourne stores and internationally. Plus, shoppers can access a free personal shopping service in store, and get treated to a VIP styling session.
With numerous shoots and secret projects on celebrity agendas, we were transported into the heady world of fashion and beauty through some very cool behind-the-scenes shots. Miranda Kerr revealed a new project (and shared a snap from the set), Jesinta Campbell let us in on a fun-looking shoot with Who magazine, and Jessica Hart gave us a taste of what life is like in the makeup chair. Two Victoria's Secret Angels worked out together, one British It Girl showed off her very fabulous friends (including Sienna Miller), and Jessica Gomes let us have a good look at her stunning manicure. . . But that's not even half of it! Click through now to check out the week's best Instagram pictures.
Supermodel Gemma Ward and her partner David Letts have reportedly welcomed the arrival of their first child, a baby girl. Friend and fellow model, Nicole Trunfio, announced the news on Instagram posting a shot of the new mum breast-feeding alongside the caption "Congratulations to my beautiful incredible friend @glouisew and her man @lettsy2106 for welcoming this little angel into the world!!!!" Since posting earlier today, the image has been removed from Nicole Trunfio's Instagram account.
Gemma Ward's brother Oscar Ward also took to Facebook to confirm the news, saying "I am officially an uncle". While it's yet to be confirmed where the couple welcomed their first child, the pair were spotted leaving Australia shores destined for Hawaii in recent weeks.
Congratulations to Gemma Ward and David Letts! For the first pic of Gemma Ward's new baby, keep reading.
It's official: the stars are still flocking to Dior for their red carpet needs. Between The Hunger Games: Catching Fire's promotional tour and the recent Marrakech International Film Festival, we can safely say the fashion house is having a major moment. After all, the instant Raf Simons's first collection for Dior hit the runway in July 2012, we had a feeling his designs would become a quick celeb favorite.
Jennifer Lawrence, Natalie Portman, and Marion Cotillard were just a few of our favourites to don Simons's chic designs, which we're sure will continue to be caught under the lights of the red carpet. Check out the most stylish celebrity-approved Christian Dior looks — here in the gallery.

What we wouldn't give to get dressed in Lea Michele's closet! When deciding what to wear to L'Oréal Paris's Women of Worth event last night, the star chose a dress from one of the most opulent collections of the season. The star stepped onto the red carpet in an embellished lace dress by Dolce & Gabbana — whose Fall collection became an instant hit due to its highly decorated wares and bejeweled headpieces.
What better way to make a regal, dramatic, and above all, stylish statement on the red carpet? See all angles of her look right here.
If you haven't bought your holiday look yet, you might want to hold off until tonight — that's when L'Wren Scott for Banana Republic hits the online store. And it's not just party dresses we'll have to look forward to from the 50-piece collection! Of the pajamas, which Scott calls her favourites in the line, she says, "That's all I can think of at Christmas: I get to sleep in!" As for why Scott chose the brand for her first collaboration, that decision was an equally warm and cozy one: "I have memories of growing up in Utah and saving my money to shop there. I worked for a Banana Republic [campaign] with Herb Ritts, so I have a history with them."
With feminine silhouettes, seasonal hues, and prices ranging from approx $39 to $198, this could easily become our one-stop shop for holiday dressing. Click through to hear more of her interview, sneak a glimpse of what to expect, and get your shopping lists ready!
