Between Miranda Kerr in New York and Jennifer Hawkins in Australia, supermodels Karlie Kloss and Anja Rubik, and actress Dianna Agron, we didn't know which way to turn — all we know is that everyone is killing it. In this gallery, you'll find our Top 10 celebrity beauty moments of the week, including one stars incredible purple eyeshadow, another with a popping lip and one who added some sex appeal to the humble french braid.

Her earnings were down slightly last year, but Gisele Bündchen is still far and away the highest-paid super-model on the planet, according to Forbes.With a reported $42 million in earnings between June 2012 and June 2013, Bündchen once again tops the money-minded magazine's annual list of the 10 highest-earning runway walkers and campaign stars. In second place is Bündchen's fellow former Victoria's Secret Angel Miranda Kerr, with reported earnings of $7.2 million. That means that even after the $3 million drop she experienced last year, Bündchen still earns nearly six times as much as her closest competitor. But that should come as no surprise: this is Bündchen's seventh year at the top of the list, and with contracts for brands ranging from H&M to Oral-B, she's making money from sectors outside the fashion industry. In fact, Bündchen earns so much money that in 2011, it was reported that if the companies she represented were analyzed as a single stock index, they would outperform the Dow Jones Industrial Average.
Kate Moss also made headlines earlier this Summer with news that she'd tripled her income last year, but that figure (a reported $18 million) was based on earnings of her companies Tilly Church and Skate LLP. The Forbes list takes only personal earnings into account.
The other models on this list aren't quite that rich, but they're still making plenty of money. A look at who else made Forbes's list of highest-earning models, here.
It's hard to look through this week's Top 10 best-dressed list without feeing a pang of longing for hot Summer days. Between Miranda Kerr's sexy and sheer floral skirt (it cost less than $100!) and Diane Kruger's floaty neon green, black and white number, there were a whole lot of bright, skin-grazing materials that left legs bare and hearts racing.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was in Sydney so she was ready to tackle Winter, but she also kept things light with her neutral colour scheme and a pop of red to liven things up. Stepping up the sex appeal, Blake Lively was picture-perfect in nude embellished Burberry Prorsum — in fact, this look of hers is one of our favourites of all time.

Our favourite famous famous gave us many talking points this week. Top of the list? Cara Delevingne, who locked lips with another beautiful English It Girl and made sure to share the resulting pics on Instagram. Also making us sit up and pay attention? The Aussie model who took a unique approach to expressing her opinion on gun laws. . . at the 2013 Met Gala. A wild week it may have been, but it was just as stylish and beautiful as ever. Lara Bingle, Miranda Kerr and Bambi Northwood-Blyth all gave us some behind-the-scenes pics in the makeup chair, Phoebe Tonkin found her wedding dress inspiration (while another celebrity got married in black!), Jennifer Hawkins took a break on a photo shoot and Nicole Richie zoomed in on some gorgeous details (check out those nails!).

Tiffany & Co. invited their Blue Book Ball guests to step inside one of their iconic little (well, not so little) blue box at Rockerfeller Centre in New York City today. The reason? To inspect the brand's Art-Deco inspired Jazz Age collection, which nicely coincides with the release of Baz Luhrman's The Great Gatsby film — for which Tiffany & Co. designed and provided the jewellery. The A-list attendees adhered to the black tie dress code, with floor-length gowns de riguer. Birthday girl Kate Hudson looked fresh in a pale blue Reem Acra Resort '13 number, Jessica Biel was elegant in Elie Saab A/W '13, Sarah Jessica Parker wowed in a vintage Vicki Tiel gold gown and a Yeojin Bae black blazer and Gwyneth Paltrow may have stolen the show in a languid Ralph Lauren Pre-Fall '13 satin sheath. Step inside to see all the glamorous arrivals . . .
As the stars step out for the Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball in New York City, it's all about timeless beauty with natural palettes and classic hair.

With two of Australia's biggest fashion events falling in the same seven-day period, we always knew this was going to be a doozy of a week when it comes to style. The Logies were off first — TV's "night of nights", where our favourite stars get to doll up and wear Oscars-worthy gowns. Some were incredible — and some less so — but Samara Weaving certainly stood out from the crowd, in the best way possible. Joining her on the red carpet best-dressed list? Laura Dundovic and Carrie Bickmore, in their equally impressive gowns.
And then came fashion week. From Aussie models and TV presenters to women who are recognised globally for their style blogs, the streets of Redfern hadn't looked this good since. . . well, a long time. Lara Bingle kicked things off with a cut-out number in her current go-to colour, black, while Nikki Phillips generously contributed to the colour spectrum with her mini-skirt suit set. And the rest of the globe? Miranda Kerr's street style won us over (again) in LA, Solange Knowles did what she does best, and Katy Perry? She toned things down a notch, and we think her dark, feminine ensemble looks divine. Take a stylish step this way to check it all out.
