Not that we need reminding, but Australian women really are leading the style the pack at the moment. All the proof you need ir right here, with Rose Byrne, Miranda Kerr and Christine Centenera giving us some of our absolute favourite looks of the week. Miranda's look was (believe it or not) just her regular work-day attire — but it was anything but average — while Rose Byrne's simple Emmy Awards gown was one of the best on a red carpet full of dramatic gowns. Christine is a seasoned fashion week style setter, and she didn't let us down this week in Paris. As for the international stars? Taylor Swift wowed us in a beautiful tea dress that we couldn't take our eyes off. Click through to see this week's Top 10 best dressed stars!
When you attend an event wearing a stunning designer gown, it’s handy to bring the designer along as your date, as Diane Kruger experienced at today’s Metropolitan Opera opening season performance of Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin. She wore a sculptural dress by Prabal Gurung, and the designer was on hand to fix her dress and make sure it looked perfect for photos; he was in a similar situation last week when he attended the New York City Ballet Fall Gala with Sarah Jessica Parker. Model Coco Rocha also turned heads in her Greta Constantine gown, and other celebrities who dressed up for the occasion include Mischa Barton, Heather Graham, Brooke Shields and newlywed Patrick Stewart, who attended with his wife Sunny Ozell.
Thanks to fashion month (we're onto Milan Week, FYI!), we've been treated to some high fashion looks from the likes of Sienna Miller, Olivia Palermo and Alexa Chung — though, as always, Alexa found a way to incorporate chainstore chic into her look, too. Away from all things Fashion Week, Miranda Kerr once again made the street her catwalk when she stepped out wearing a beautiful seafoam dress by J. Mendel, Gwyneth Paltrow worked it in a crisp white dress (with pockets!) and Olivia pulled off some super-tight pink leathers. There's much more to see — click through to check out this week's Top 10!
Well, it's been a week full of big news and events — and we've got all the pictures you need to see! Liam Hemsworth hit Los Angeles airport soon after his split from Miley Cyrus was confirmed, Miranda Kerr carted her littlest guy, Flynn, around New York &mash; have you ever seen a happier baby? — and some of the Victoria's Secret Angels popped up in Paris to film a new commercial into the early hours of the morning. Throw in a couple of newlyweds, some very stylish couples, Fashion Week, multiple movie premieres and more, and you've got a week of picture-worthy events! Click through to see it all now.
After the high-drama runway show for his eponymous label earlier in the week, it was refreshing to get a decidedly pared-down offering with the Spring 2014 collection of ICB by Prabal Gurung. This season's line-up was relaxed from head to toe (literally — the models wore mesh footies inside their silver metallic platforms). From slouchy-yet-sculpted crop tops to boxy jackets and tent dresses, basic staples and wardrobe-maximizing separates were aplenty. Vinyl paillettes stitched onto organza dresses was as done-up as it got, and that's fine by us.
Usually it's the red lipstick a woman can't live without, but according to the Spring 2014 runways, orange will be the go-to hue for the sunny season. But the orange shades we spotted at New York Fashion Week were more electric than muted. When you're shopping for bold lip colours, bypass the salmon and melon and move towards the neon tangerine.

Did you hear that? It's the collective gasp from the crowd at the Prabal Gurung Spring 2014 show as a clear box deep within the historic Post Office building filled with the industry's top models. The women stood stoically for the duration of the show, as each one filed out singularly to show off highly sculpted pieces in saturated shades of seafoam, lavender, geranium, and marigold.
The high drama of the presentation continued through the mixed-print mashups, laminated tulle, and abstract embroideries on bustled evening dresses. A plunging violet sheath is a guaranteed red carpet knockout — perhaps for Allison Williams, who was perched front row? Click through to see the full Prabal Gurung Spring 2014 collection.
If you thought Spring meant plenty of shine, then think again. Everything from the hair to the nails to the makeup was matte at Prabal Gurung's Spring 2014 show. The makeup was focused on the lips, which were painted in one of three matte shades: orange, lavender, and Pepto pink. "He wanted the girls to have this sense of perfection and elegance," lead makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury for Mac Cosmetics said.
Since the collection was quite couture, the hair was meant to mimic it. Paul Hanlon for Osis wanted the girls to have hair so perfect, it looked almost preserved. "It's almost as if they've been sitting in formaldehyde and are stepping out to show their perfection just for a minute," he said. Wet-looking hair was matted down, following the shape of the girls' heads and necks, allowing one of the ears to poke through to show off the gorgeous, embellished earring. Nails by Sally Hansen were a new take on the french manicure: matte with just a touch of shine at the tip.
