Emporio Armani's Autumn/Winter 2013 runway collection was full of sartorial references to the decadence of the roaring '20s — Daisy Buchanan eat your heart out! Cloche hats, drop-waist dresses and luxurious fabrics suggested an air of opulence, yet thanks to Mr Armani's streamlined aesthetic the lineup was firmly anchored in the modern age, too. The first images from the A/W ad campaign hit our inbox this morning, and we're excited to share a sneak peak at both the womenswear and menswear lines. Your exclusive preview awaits. . .
Jessica Chastain has arrived! And she's looking every inch the classic movie star in her golden bronze column dress by Armani Privé. It fits her absolutely perfectly (look at that waist!) and the colour makes her red hair pop in the nicest way. The understated Harry Winston jewels pull the look together to a neat finish. It's simple, elegant and very Oscars-worthy — what do you think?
For months we've been inundated with pictures of celebs wearing chunky metal- and plastic-strap watches... and while we're still into heavy-duty arm-candy, we're keeping watch (sorry) on their more simplified and classic counterparts — think sleek leather straps and plain (but never boring) faces. Led by Isabel Marant's super simple take on the classic (inspired by her father!) and worn by Miranda Kerr, it's clear that these watches are going to be the look du jour come spring time. Naturally, we're going to help you out by shortlisting a bunch of our faves — click through to get shopping!
The 2012 Do Something Awards brought out a slew of hotly-hued red carpet looks in Santa Monica today, reminding us that Spring is most definitely on its way. Kristen Bell worked a multi-coloured Jenny Kane Resort '13 sheath, Olivia Munn and Maria Menounos both opted for poke-your-eye fuchsia pink minis, Sophia Bush stood out in a tangerine floor-length number and Aubrey Plaza kept cool in cobalt. There was respite from the technicolour display however, with Lea Michele (in Armani), Giuliana Rancic, Nikki Reed and Ashley Greene all going for more subdued neutral hues. Step on up to get a better look at today's tasty red carpet treats!
Last time we saw Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel, they were working coordinating looks in taupe tones for the Total Recall photocall. However, these leading ladies took distinctly different approaches to their red carpet looks for yesterday's red carpet premiere in LA. Jessica opted for a sugary-sweet frock from Christian Dior Couture's A/W '12 collection, designed by Raf Simons. Louis Vuitton cap-toed pumps and statement jewels from Tom Binns amped up her look. Kate on the other hand was dark and dangerous in a reptilian Armani Privé gown, black Brian Atwood pumps and Lorraine Schwartz jewellery. The cutest thing is seeing these two gal-pals comparing outfits on the red rug, ain't that sweet? Step inside to see each get-up properly, then tell us which one floats your boat.

Emma Stone wore striped Armani to join fellow Hollywood starlets like Jessica Alba, Amber Heard, Rashida Jones and Katie Holmes for Giorgio Armani and Vanity Fair's private dinner in LA last night. Super stylist Rachel Zoe was decked out in black to pose before the exclusive meal. It was Katie's latest outing with the brand after attending many of its shows over the years. Katie Holmes' wedding dress was even Armani! There were plenty of men represented, too: Adam Brody dressed up for the event as did Josh Hartnett, Aaron Eckhart, newly single James Marsden, and Darren Criss. It was a date night for Mark Wahlberg and Rhea Durham as well as J. Edgar star Armie Hammer and his wife Elizabeth Chambers. Emma attended after a long day on the set of The Gangster Squard with her two-time co-star Ryan Gosling — the duo also acted together in Crazy, Stupid, Love. Katie, meanwhile, has been hanging out on the West Coast and shopping with her daughter, Suri Cruise, following their weekend visit to Tom Cruise on the Pittsburgh production site of One Shot. The debut of Katie's next acting gig is coming up, too, when the Halloween episode of How I Met You Mother, in which she plays the infamous "slutty pumpkin," finally airs.
Rafael Nadal was in New York yesterday to unveil his new Armani Jeans campaign at Macy’s Herald Square. The tennis star goes shirtless in the ads to model jeans and underwear, and previously showed off his hot body for the label in their Spring ’11 campaign in January. It’s a busy time for the athlete, who has been preparing for the US Open tournament that commences on August 29. He has also been promoting his new book, Rafa: My Story, made an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman this week, and has continued his work with Bacardi to spread the word about responsible drinking.
Megan Fox is having a moment. An Armani moment. The 24-year-old actress was signed as the face of the luxury skincare and makeup brand back in August last year after appearing in several sexy underwear shoots for the brand and now she's the new face of Armani's Code fragrance. It's previously been fronted by Mini Andén and Anja Rubik and Megan's campaign is classic Code: heavy on the sensuality, hot guy, model in a backless dress. Ms. Fox's look has been switched up though with the long-haired beauty donning a Pulp Fiction-esque black bobbed wig for the shoot, complete with ruby red lips. What do you think of it? Do you like it?
