L.K.Bennett — aka Kate Middleton's go-to shoe label — held a tea luncheon in LA, and invited British beauties Poppy Delevingne and Rosamund Pike, as well as Revenge's Christa B. Allen. To dress the part of "ladies who lunch," the ladies brought their styling A-game in equally fresh ensembles. Delevingne stepped out in a pastel green maxidress, which featured a thigh-high slit, then completed her look with a chunky gold necklace, lilac clutch, and gold gladiator sandals. Pike chose a classic pairing — an LWD and black pumps — while Allen mixed pastels and brights via her Oday Shakar floral chiffon mini. Now, it's time to decide: which outfit gets your best-dressed vote?
The creative crew from H&M must be keen festival goers, because they've nailed the dress code. Without getting into obvious Woodstock territory, the lastest Spring campaign from the Swedish super chain mixes boho elements with grungier, '90s inspired separates to keep things real. Please don't hate us for showing you something that us Aussies can't yet get a hold of down under, but we thought you'd appreciate a look-see anyway. Planning a trip o/s?

Victoria's Secret just released the second issue of its 2013 swim catalogue, and to showcase this latest round of swimwear, the Angels took to the beaches of Tulum, Mexico. Namely, Candice Swanepoel, Karlie Kloss, Barbara Palvin, Erin Heatherton and Behati Prinsloo provided the signature VS sex appeal in a sunny lineup of little bikinis and playful one-pieces. From the curve-enhancing push-up iterations, to the retro ruffle-trimmed suits, to the sportier striped bandeaus and bottoms, this is the kind of warm-weather styling that already has us looking forward to next Summer.

It's not just the clothes we look forward to with every H&M collection; the retailer scores major points with the style crowd for its always-on-point styling (and obviously for its totally accessible price points), too. For its latest rendition, the label offers up a cool crew of jewel tones, prints, embellishments, and sharp tailoring that make looking sophisticated — and on-trend — a cinch. Sure, it may be geared towards the Northern Hemisphere's temperatures cooling down, but you can take styling inspiration from this campaign no matter what your climate. Of course, outfitting a look book is one thing; real-life dressing is another. Not to fear; we're breaking down the H&M dress code right here and giving you the no-fail styling tips to put it to use all season long. Click on to see how it's done.
We're only a couple of months away from the holiday season, and to kick things off right, ASOS just debuted its Christmas look book chock-full of affordable party-wear options.

Take a peek at all of the holiday fun in the slideshow now.
It looks like we'll be travelling under the sea for Spring 2012 — if the runways at Versace, Chanel, Jenny Packham, and Givenchy were any indication, the deep-sea fantasies from your childhood have been given a sexy, grown-up spin, and the results are pure magic. The trend isn't overdone with obvious fishtail hems or ripples of blue, but rather with clean, subtle nods to the ebbs and flows of the ocean — just see Jenny Packham's long, lithe silhouettes, Donatella Versace's seahorse-print separates, Givenchy's pretty pailettes, and the pearl-encrusted looks at Chanel (lest we forget Florence Welch performing in a giant clamshell on the runway). Not feeling all-over fish scales? You can still achieve the look in small doses with a pretty coral necklace, a delicate lace top, or layers of pearl chains.
