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!). There's so much to see — click through now to check it all out!
After weeks of waiting in anticipation, the Costume Institute Benefit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art has gone off with a bang. Sticking to the this year's theme, Punk: Chaos to Couture, models, actresses, and fashion fixtures are filled the red carpet in punk-inspired ensembles from the likes of Balenciaga, Maison Martin Margiela, Christian Dior, Christopher Kane, and Donna Karan. For a complete look at all the Met Gala glamour, just keep clicking to see who wore what.
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. Gwyneth Paltrow is rocking her signature glossy locks, whilst Carey Mulligan looks clean and neat with an off the face up 'do. Click through and zoom in on the event's most glamourous hair and makeup.
Last night's Pikolinos Gala Dinner at the UN drew out supporter Olivia Palermo and her signature eclectic glamour. Meanwhile, The Breast Cancer Research Foundation's annual Hot Pink Party supplied a lesson in evening elegance, courtesy of NY style crew Tory Burch, Kate Hudson, and Elizabeth Hurley.

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.
Lena Dunham and Allison Williams were joined by their castmates and quite a few celebrity friends when they premiered the second season of Girls in NYC yesterday. Lena wore a strapless Valentino jumpsuit while Allison wore an Altuzarra ensemble. Zosia Mamet and Jemima Kirke, who gave birth to her second child seven weeks ago, hammed it up with their co-stars on the red carpet while the men of Girls — Adam Driver, Christopher Abbott, Andrew Rannells and Alex Karpovsky — took photos together. Solange Knowles also attended the event along with HBO stars like Michael K. Williams and Steve Buscemi.
The cast and Lena in particular have been in the press quite a bit lately as they promote the new season of their hit series, which premieres in Australia on Monday, Jan. 14 on Showcase. Lena recently opened up about her awkward teenage years, saying she didn't have any friends and was a "chubby teenager." Despite her pre-Girls troubles, Lena is enjoying the success of her HBO show, including a nomination at Monday's Golden Globes.
It may be prime time for celebrity getaways to beachy locales, but the celebration for Derek Blasberg's latest venture (a chic little line of stationery for Opening Ceremony) drew out something of a style crowd in NYC last night. Blasberg's buddies were in a range of winter-appropriate ensembles to show their support — nothing too glam or over the top; just a mix of easy but polished looks from the likes of Rachel Roy, Nicky Hilton, and Hilary Rhoda. Hilary showed off her mile-long stems in a pair of black trousers, which she topped with a tweedy jacket, Nicky gave a staple knit a cool-girl twist, and Leigh Lezark proved just how eye-catching a leopard-print coat really is. For the rest of the fashionable party-goers, just click on.
Hold on to your hats peeps, because the 2012 Victoria’s Secret fashion show is about to hit your TV screens. We’ve already seen the Angels' prep and squizzed their cute ‘n’ candid shots thanks to social media — but now, the real deal is here. Victoria’s Secret veterans Alessandra Ambrosio (in her $2.5 million dollar Fantasy Bra thanks very much), Adriana Lima, Candice Swanepoel and Doutzen Kroes took to the runway last month like the pros that they are, joined by fresh faces Cara Delevingne, Hilary Rhoda and Jourdan Dunn. Karlie Kloss’ new bob magically transformed into a lush mane, while Jessica Hart, Shanina Shaik and Miranda Kerr waved the Aussie flag.
As if the world’s sexiest women in lingerie wasn’t enough entertainment, Rihanna, Bruno Mars and Justin Bieber performed for the keen crowd. The show was filmed twice in NYC, and will air tonight at 8.30pm, on FOX8. Can't wait 'til then? Why not step inside and see all the Victoria's Secret hotness — direct from New York City — now?
The fun didn't end when the catwalk closed at yesterday's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. From there, the Angels traded their lingerie and wings for a bevy of sexy cocktail dresses, then headed to NYC's Lavo for the after-party. There, the cast of Angels, including Miranda Kerr and Karlie Kloss — who traded their runway looks for a long sleeved LBD and a sparkly silver number — was joined by the night's big performers, like Justin Bieber and Rihanna, as well as a slew of celebrities who helped keep the party going. Poppy Delevingne stepped out to support sister Cara, while Alexa Chung and Vanessa Hudgens were on hand for all the festivities. Click on for all the photos — and of course, what all the models were wearing post-show.
