Sienna Miller knows how to start (and own) a trend — boho chic, anyone? — but her latest turn toward a more feminine fit-and-flare silhouette is something she has actually loved for years. While Miller's long-sleeved, light blue Matthew Williamson box-pleat dress may be the most recent example of her penchant for the girlier style, she has also stepped out in Topshop, Valentino, and Twenty8Twelve iterations. And it's not hard to see why she loves a fit-and-flare dress — and why, if you haven't converted yet, it's a really flattering choice for most body types. By cinching the smallest part of your waist and letting the skirt flare out over the hips, it creates an illusion of a bombshell-like figure. And for those of you who aren't after a totally body-con fit, this route touches on something halfway to form-fitting. All the proof you need, according to Sienna Miller, is right here.
There's still somethin' about the Little White Dress. And who better to turn to for inspiration than some of the most fashionable famous faces? We're talking about Eva Longoria, Kerry Washington, Jamie Chung, and Olivia Munn, and the list goes on. The best part of breaking out the LWD is that it's just so easy to style . . . with just about everything. From a classic white pump to a metallic sandal to a fun pop of colour via a crossbody bag, it's all fair game. Click through to see how 33 celebrities styled their LWDs, then put your own spin on it.
Vera Wang's name is synonymous with "wedding dresses," and for her latest Spring '14 bridal collection, the designer didn't short on the drama. Inspired by architecture, Wang concocted a collection filled with texture, volume, and modern nuances. While we're used to seeing all-white bridal gowns, the designer pushed the envelope with strong elements of black — via lace bodices, tulle overlays, and even luxurious leather gloves — juxtaposed against creamy ivory hues and traditional wedding dress silhouettes. Suffice to say, this lineup was not made for the classic bride, but rather the cutting-edge, boundary-pushing type. See every detail from the collection in the slideshow.
Hot off the heels of its Oscar de la Renta collaboration, The Outnet has teamed up with Issa for an exclusive dress collection. The lineup launched online yesterday and is set to feature a bevy of colourful, ultra-flattering dresses and gowns carefully selected from the brand's archives, and even more, some of the pieces received a few special tweaks here and there specifically for The Outnet. Needless to say, these pieces would be perfect for weddings, parties, and, well, any sort of chic event. The best part? Prices start around $250 USD, which is a lot more affordable compared to the brand's runway collection. Take a look at some of the pieces from the collection, featuring the gorgeous Olympia Campbell, in the slideshow, and start shopping!
Getting bored with your little black dress? Allow us to shed some light on the latest trend in cocktail attire: the edgy, rocker-cool leather dress. We saw tones of them on the runways from designers like Calvin Klein, Derek Lam, Céline, and more — but their wearability transcends the catwalk. Whether you go with an all-leather piece like Olivia Palermo or try the trend in a smaller way, like Jessica Alba's LBD with leather bra top, it's a look that will definitely have you standing out from the crowd (in the best possible way). From the girlie-glam looks of Lauren Conrad and Kerry Washington to the full-blown fashion-renegade vibe given by Kristen Stewart and Doutzen Kroes, the leather dress has proven to be surprisingly versatile, especially when worn with a great pair of heels and minimal accessories.

Call it Seattle by way of Saint-Germain. The Saint Laurent Autumn Winter 2013 took a detour into "California grunge," with creative director Hedi Slimane filling the runway with babydoll dresses, slashed leather leggings, flannel shirts, and embellished buckle boots. The YSL signatures were cleverly woven into the collection — "Le Smoking" was a tough elongated tuxedo jacket over a mini, the iconic fur chubbies turned into voluminous fur jackets draped sexily over dresses, and sparkling fishnets (even on full bodysuits) winked at traditional French dressing. We bet that front-row fans like Jessica Chastain and Kirsten Dunst will be snapping up the perfect leather coats — a sharp double-breasted trench was a standout — and the flat boots that accompanied many of the looks. Did we mention the army of black-leather-mini-clad models that came out at the very end of the show? Cool girls from coast to coast, from continent to continent, will be rocking those come Winter. Click through to see the full collection.
Miranda Kerr has taken a liking — a strong one, at that — to Peter Pilotto's bold prints. The model first wore a blue print peplum dress from the designer's Spring 2012 collection with Nicholas Kirkwood sandals in late 2011. Earlier this month, Miranda chose a flirty dress from the Resort 2013 line for her unveiling as the Kids Helpline ambassador. And just this week, at the H&M Global Green pre-Oscars party in LA, she went with another Pilotto dress, this time a colourful cut-out number from the Spring 2013 collection, which she completed with black pumps and a black clutch. It's a Miranda Kerr-meets-Peter Pilotto trifecta, and we want to know which look you like best.
