Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner joined the rest of America in celebrating the nation’s Independence Day at a Fourth of July parade in their LA neighbourhood. The couple’s two daughters, Violet, 6, and Seraphina, 3, were dressed up in the patriotic stars and stripes theme, with American flag bows adorning Seraphina’s hair — and it was also their 4-month-old son Samuel's first public outing (that has been photographed)! He wasn't at the parade but joined the family for friend's party after. Ben and Jennifer, who has slimmed down since giving birth in February, matched in low-key white T-shirts and jeans, and Ben snapped away during the festivities. His latest directorial feature, Argo, will be released in Australia on Dec. 6.
America's first lady isn't just a super-cool mum and inspiring role model; she's a style maven, too. Michelle Obama is able to jump-start new health and dance-related initiatives, attend summits and galas around the world with her husband, take her kids to school, and look amazing as she juggles it all. From the ethereal Jason Wu gown she donned at Barack's inaugural ball to casual J.Crew separates and a custom-made Boy by Band of Outsiders dress, we love her signature style of mixing high and low brands. Her special attention to supporting new, young designers; her disposition to wear bright, bold colours; and her knack for showing off those amazingly toned arms are just a few more reasons why we love Michelle's style. In honour of Independence Day in the US, we've pulled over 60 of our favourite First Lady looks.

Thematic dressing isn't always our thing, but there's something about the red, white, and blue that really gets us in the festive spirit — especially when it looks as good as it does on the pages of our favourite fashion spreads. With the US' Fourth of July on the brain, we can't help but fall for the Americana-charged stylings of Jessica Hart in a slick patriotic one-piece in Elle Italia or the likes of Victoria Beckham in a cheery red gown.

Today is Independence Day, so in honour of our State-side sisters we're taking our sartorial cues from the style that Americans do so well, classic sportswear. Taking inspiration from Tommy Hilfiger's 'Prep World' campaign (see above), which showcases some of the best preppy street style from around the globe, we went hunting for the ten ultimate Made In America wardrobe updaters. In the mix? The popped-collar polo, the classic GAP chino pant, Ralph Lauren's timeless button down, the collegiate striped blazer and Calvin Klein blue jeans. See what other fashion classics made our American all-stars style team.
