From dramatic 'dos to jaw-dropping performances, Miley Cyrus's transition from sweet Disney darling to va-va-vixen has been a bit rocky — but we're not here to judge. Although the star has had her share of controversy, Cyrus has taken everything in stylish stride. Flaunting her fit figure in an array of designer creations on the red carpet and on stage, 2013 was — according to Miley — the year of the crop top and, by consequence, the bare midriff. While some may not understand her unique ensembles, we commend the star for staying true to herself while constantly pushing the envelope. Whether you love it or hate it, Miley's stand-out style always gets people talking — and any publicity is good publicity, right? In honour of the birthday girl's big 2-1 yesterday, we're rounding up her best cropped looks from the past year. After all, it's her (birthday) party; she can do what she wants.
A-list actress Anne Hathaway hits the 31-year milestone today, and to celebrate, we're taking a look back at her best red carpet moments. Anne's built up quite the reputation as a stellar actress, and with all those exuses to step out onto the red carpet, we've lost track of the number of times she's topped our best dressed lists. Whether she's wearing a slinky Armani Privé sheath, or a frothy, floral Valentino Couture gown, she always hits the fashion mark. Take a trip down memory lane with her best red carpet moments over the years, and happy birthday, Anne!
The ultimate slashie, Dree Hemingway's model/ actress/ ballerina/ socialite status has landed her in front of the camera more times than we can count. Although she's the great-granddaughter of writer Ernest Hemingway, Dree is accomplished in her own right, saying "I am my own person, and I think that the only thing with the Hemingway name is that it has gotten me in the door."
Frequently turning heads front row, on the red carpet and the runway, she's a style chameleon with a penchant for adding a personal flavour to what's trending. We love her for her flair with quirky accessories (she's a sneakers-with-anything girl at heart) and her chic high-low pairings (think: Alexander Wang, Balmain and Givenchy alongside Gap t-shirts). Head into the gallery to get familiar with Dree's most fashion-forward outfits.
Of course models look amazing on the runway, but it's a certain few who manage to take fashion to the street. And, although iconic for her gorgeous gap-tooth grin and that bikini bod', it's not just Jess Hart's infectious smile we love. Since appearing in the 2009 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, this Sydney-born, New York-based model has undergone an unbelievable style transformation.
As a Victoria's Secret regular and Vogue covergirl, the now front-row favourite has (mostly) ditched the body-con silhouettes in favour of totally trend-driven ensembles — be it cropped polka-dot print trousers or floor-sweeping, midriff-baring Diane von Furstenberg.
One look at Jess Hart's stellar off-duty outfits, and you can tell the It-girl's got style sorted. Brimming with a cool mix of U.S. designer names (DVF), a dash of Parisian chic (Isabel Marant) and a laidback flash of feminine Australian fashion (Zimmermann), it's one wardrobe definitely worth watching.
Enter the gallery for over 50 of Jess Hart's most fabulous outfits.
Sofia Coppola's CV is as coveted as her wardrobe, with the director/ designer/ actress/ cover girl continuously serving up ultra-refined red carpet looks to match any of her leading ladies. She is as stylish as she is accomplished, recently releasing her fifth movie, The Bling Ring, starring Emma Watson, Lesli Mann, Katie Change and Isreal Broussard.
Last night, Sofia Coppola turned out to support designer friends at the Fashion Group International Night of Stars, picking a demure knee-thing dress for the event. That and more of Sofia Coppola's most stylish moments are all in the gallery.
Known for her starring roles on Laguna Beach and The Hills, the blonde beauty has blossomed into an author, designer, and beauty guru — not to mention one of our favourite celebrity social media fixtures. What we love most about Lauren's style is how laid-back, put-together, and incredibly accessible it is.
She's got a serious knack for fusing high fashion with California beach babe, which is an aesthetic that we can all get behind. From embellished party dresses to glamorous red carpet confections, Lauren's signature style continues to evolve — and she's taught us more than a few styling lessons along the way. So get a pen and grab a seat, then take note of LC's most stylish looks over the years.

We don't think we've ever seen Olivia Palermo in an outfit we didn't love — or want to re-create. We watched The City just to see what she'd wear every week; now we can get our style fix watching her front row at Fashion Weeks around the world, playing dress-up for Oscar de la Renta as the face of the designer's Outnet collection, or strolling the streets of New York City alongside beau Johannes Huebl. And now we have news she's bring her stellar style to Australia. With that in mind, we've put together an Olivia Palermo look book — complete with every one of the fashion darling's eclectic, cool, and utterly chic ensembles this year (so far). Click through for some very stylish eye candy, and garner a little outfit inspiration straight from the always best-dressed Olivia Palermo.
Before we get into the juicy style stalking, answer this: what were you doing when you were 15? Probably not claiming your Teen Choice and Critics Choice awards or topping too many best dressed lists, right? Although she didn’t see a day of the ‘80s (she was born in ’98, yikes) this fresh-faced starlet is consistently delivering red carpet looks to contest even the most seasoned red carpet attendees.
She debuted on the big screen to support big sister Dakota in I Am Sam at just three years old, and has since forged a career and personal style that is all her own. Equal parts whimsical (she's a big fan of vintage) and polished (one word: Chanel), and with that big unbridled grin, you can't help but fall head over high heels for Elle Fannings fabulous wardrobe. Take a look.
Ah Gwyneth, her Goop-spirational ways, flawless red carpet style and stellar acting skills have landed Gwyn in the spotlight more times than we can count. Aside from being BFFs with Stella McCartney and an Oscar winner, she’s got the kind of wardrobe a girl could sit and stare at for days. And now, the actress, model, mother and businesswoman is turning 41 . . . believe it!
Flick through the gallery to see Gwyneth’s style evolution, and how People Magazine's Most Beautiful Woman really hasn’t changed a bit over the past decade. From that Ralph Lauren dress from the 1999 Oscars, to her penchant for sky-high hemlines circa 2008, to her predelection for minimalist sheaths, we've rounded up Gwyneth's most memorable looks. Happy birthday Gwyn!
Can we talk about Miranda Kerr's amazing fashion sense? It's no secret Miranda has solidified herself in the street style hall of fame, but the Australian beauty has also mastered the art of turning up the heat on the red carpet. Showcasing her flawless figure in body-hugging creations, high-shine mini-dresses, and carefully cut-out gowns, Miranda's penchant for sexy silhouettes makes her a red carpet favorite. To be fair, she doesn't always opt for seductive styles, as evidenced by the ethereal, embellished Valentino confection she wore at this year's Vanity Fair Oscars party. Whether she's channeling a '50s pinup or a Grecian goddess, it's clear Miranda's style savvy knows no limits, and in honor of her recent birthday, we're looking back at her best red carpet moments yet.
