"Mmhmm, beat that," Rachel McAdams seemed to be thinking in this photo, as she walked the Oscars red carpet in 2016. That's because she was wearing a gorgeous teal gown so new, it hadn't even debuted yet. Her halter-neck, open-back August Getty Atelier design was shown later on the runway at Paris Fashion Week as part of the label's Fall 2016 collection. But we got to admire the look on Rachel way before that.
Rachel's stylists told People the actress originally chose the gown for the Vanity Fair afterparty sans train, but when she couldn't stop thinking about the original dress, they whipped up a new creation for the ceremony. To all the ladies who still request their gowns after they strutted the catwalk, keep up. Read on to see Rachel's biggest style move to date, and zoom in on her Stuart Weitzman heels and gorgeous diamond drop earrings.(image)

On a day-to-day basis, Natalie Portman's maternity look is super casual and laid-back. Roll out the red carpet, however, and this expectant mama transforms into what we call a total style goddess. She's worn floor-sweeping gowns, body-hugging minis, and a variety of printed dresses - all looks perfectly complementing her baby bump. Natalie was even one of the first stars to wear coveted Spring '17 designs like a custom Brandon Maxwell ruffle minidress.
The actress even wore a powerful piece from Dior to the Women's March. For the significant occasion, Natalie chose a t-shirt that read "We Should All Be Feminists," from the fashion house's Spring '17 collection.
From runway to the stage, this is one Dior piece that'll go down in history and we're glad the cameras are here to capture her best maternity style moments. Since she's not due until Spring, a tidbit she revealed to Jimmy Fallon, it's a sign Natalie's got many more red carpet style snaps to come. Scroll on to see some of her best looks so far.(image)

The first thing you might notice upon seeing Cindy Crawford shopping with Kaia Gerber, is, well, Kaia's furry pink coat. The Pam and Gela design is hard to miss. But zoom in closer and you'll recognize the mother-daughter duo's stunning similarities, like that perfectly flowing brown hair. Though it appears it was a hat day for Kaia, who opted to try out the newsboy cap right in the middle of Fashion Week. There's no better time, really, to experiment with a new trend.
It's one that supermodel Bella Hadid's a fan of - she included the same style in her Chrome Hearts collection. But Kaia makes the hat all her own, accenting the Brixton piece with '90s essentials like leather leggings and combat boots. Scroll for a closer look, and see how Bella wears her own newsboy cap too. By then you should be plenty ready to shop for your own and try it on for size.(image)

Angelina Jolie's in Cambodia to promote her new film First They Killed My Father. For the special occasion, she, of course, had to pack two different dresses. The star first stepped out in a lacy black option, which she looked radiant in. Later on in the day, she switched up her color palette completely, emerging in a hot pink Schiaparelli gown that swept the floor.
The color was bold, intense, and definitely eye-catching, but it wasn't until she turned around that we got the full view. While the front of her dress was covered up, the back was completely open to reveal her tattoos. "WHOA," we thought as we zoomed in on the sexy style. Leave it to Angelina to save the best surprises for last.(image)

With the 2017 Academy Awards coming up (this Sunday!), there's one big question on everyone's mind: who's wearing what? Enter your best guesses, but we have a solid lead on at least one red carpet look: a custom Marchesa gown for fashion influencer Olivia Culpo. The dress, created by Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman for Stella Artois's Buy a Lady a Drink Campaign, will be unveiled on the red carpet the day-of, but three different sample sketches are enough to get everyone excited.
The chosen dress will incorporate glass beads made from Stella Artois's limited-edition chalices - for each one sold, clean water is delivered to developing countries - and the look will be the first Marchesa gown to ever be made out of glasswear. "It's giving back in style," said Olivia when we asked her about the partnership. The Marchesa dress, it seems, is already promising to steal the red carpet spotlight with its powerful backstory. While you wait for the big reveal on Sunday, read on for other pre-Oscars tidbits Olivia shared with us. Then, check out what other stars you can expect to see on the red carpet.(image)

Emma Watson took on the green carpet challenge back in 2015, committing to wearing only ethically made clothing. Back then, she and her stylist Sarah Slutsky would break down each element of her outfit, from dainty jewels to pumps, detailing where every item came from on Instagram. But Emma's taking things one step further as she promotes Beauty and the Beast on the film's press tour, which started in Paris.
Emma created a new account called @the_press_tour, where she'll be sharing sketches of her looks, all-angle videos, and lengthy captions that credit the team who crafted her pieces. Many of the designers she's tapping, like Stella McCartney, have been on board with using recycled materials for years. Emma's dresses and jumpsuits are "verified green" by Eco-Age, a company that promotes sustainability through core principles that include matters of pollution, labor work, and fabric resourcing.
Scroll to get a look at everything Emma's worn so far - including this custom blue dress by Louis Vuitton and a straight-off-the-runway Oscar de la Renta jumpsuit - then hold out for her next ensemble, which will cater to both her smart standards and sophisticated sense of style.(image)

The 2017 Met Gala theme has been announced. The focus will be on Comme des Garçons's designer Rei Kawakubo, which is pretty crazy in and of itself. This makes Kawakubo only the second living designer to be honored at the annual exhibit, following Yves Saint Laurent in 1983. Since Comme des Garçons is known not only for avant-garde looks that shape the figure in dramatic ways, but also for iconic street style items, the event calls for some experimental co-chairs.
According to People, Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen will co-chair the event, which they've been attending since 2008. Anna Wintour will be hosting alongside Katy Perry and Pharrell, who worked on a perfume with Comme des Garçons for his Girl album in 2014. Read on for a quick preview of what we expect to see on May 1 when the gallery doors are finally opened and the red carpet rolls out.(image)

As if her gilded appearance at the recent Grammy Awards wasn't enough, Beyoncé graced us with another stunning fashion moment when she recently attended the NBA All-Star Game in New Orleans. The expecting icon sat courtside with Jay Z and Blue Ivy - Blue looking adorable as ever - but we couldn't stop staring at her insane floor-length robe.
The embroidered silk kimono comes from the Gucci Spring 2017 collection and is currently priced at a smooth $21,945. She accessorized her look with a printed Gucci fan, available for $450, and strappy heels from Gianvito Rossi.
We weren't the only ones mesmerized by Beyoncé's appearance. Following the game, John Mayer took to Instagram to praise her daring maternity look. He wrote, "I'm not one to pander, so please believe me when I say it: this is the fit of the year. Everyone else just wear sweats. It's over. Go home." Well, looks like we'll be sticking to sweatpants for the remainder of the year. Thanks, Bey!(image)

Lea Michele seems to have figured out how to make her swimsuits look sophisticated, and it involves a sarong. For a tropical getaway, the actress wore her black one-piece swimsuit in Maui, HI, while sipping on a drink and chatting with friends. The bathing suit was a piece we've spotted on the star before, but Lea made it look fresh with a tie-dye printed cover-up. The accessory gave her just enough coverage on the beach while still showing off the sexy details of her swimsuit.
The suit was low cut in the front and back, and its versatile shade meant Lea had plenty of sarong options to match. Maybe she will even pull out this rainbow option again. Whatever she chooses to wear, it'll be sure to catch your attention. Scroll on for a closer look at Lea's go-to beach outfit before shopping similar items yourself.(image)

We just can't help it. Every season we watch the runway, waiting for looks that remind us of our favorite Disney characters. It's not that these sparkly, dreamy dresses aren't perfect for the red carpet; they're appropriate there, too. It's just that there's something about the 17 designs below that feel all the more flavorful and costume-like. In fact, if Ariel, Aurora, and (scarily enough) Cruella de Vil were here in IRL, we bet they'd choose these outfits in a heartbeat. Scroll to see all the perfect pairings we found this season.(image)

When we talked to Lauren Conrad about her popular clothing line for Kohl's, we had to take a quick pause to grill her about her gorgeous Instagram feed. If you didn't already know that it looks like a dreamy, pink mood board, perhaps you picked up on Lauren's social media prowess when she announced her pregnancy, offering a first glimpse at her maternity style.
Lauren's baby bump fit right in with the rest of her style snaps, which are usually fashion focused, but also provide a taste of adventure, with plenty of BTS shots, food 'grams, and manicures included. So, what's the secret sauce?
"I think as far as taking photos that have a softer appearance, it's really important to have good lighting honestly. I take photos all day long, but I only post once or twice a week because I do like consistency throughout a feed. I think it's about not sharing everything. For me, if you go back a little further, I had some photos that I would take in the evening. But in the last year or two I kind of stopped doing that. Almost my entire feed is taken during the day in natural light," she revealed.
Scroll for a look at some of Lauren's best work, and find a few more tips we gleaned ourselves while studying her pictures.(image)

If there's one thing we love about Selena Gomez, it's that she's always game to show off her stylish swimsuits. After all, she's hot and she knows it. In fact, when the star called the TJ Show and was asked to rate her hotness on a scale from one to 10, she said, "On a good day, I would say - like a premiere day - I would be a good nine. And then, on my every day, I feel like a six. Gosh, that sounds so bad! I feel like a six or a seven."
But from the look of Selena's sun-kissed bikinigrams, for which she changes her style based on the prints, colors, and cuts of her suit, we'd say she's a definite 10 - even when she's on the beach with no makeup on. Scroll to find 18 times Selena proved she can work a swimsuit like it's nobody's business.(image)

Gigi Hadid's got a busy life, especially during Fashion Month. She's trekking from show to show in a hurry, but likely wants to look polished along the way. You feel her, right? There are days you don't have time to try on a billion combinations and plan your outfit like a pro. On those days, you need Gigi's Fashion Week tee. It's a white cutoff that's twisted up into a knot, so Gigi can bare her midriff.
After wearing it last season with everything from distressed boyfriend jeans to tweed shorts, Gigi styled it with trousers, aviator-shaped opticals, and a furry duster in London for the latest round of shows. Again, it made for the perfect casual foundation to a very luxe look. Read on to see how Gigi's piece proves to be a game changer, then shop for one of your own. Whether you snip away at a short-sleeved shirt and DIY it or buy it prestyled instead, it's a winning staple to add to your wardrobe.(image)

Ahead of the Princess Diana fashion exhibit that's opening at Kensington Palace this week, curator Eleri Lynn talked details with Vogue. Lynn discussed some of Diana's most memorable pieces and the occasions for which she'd wear them. While Diana wore plenty of glamorous gowns and stunning tiaras, there's a sweet story behind her modest floral "caring dress," which she frequently wore on hospital visits.
Princess Diana was photographed in the look at a São Paulo, Brazil, shelter in 1991, wearing no hat or gloves, but a gold choker, matching studs, and a long pendant. "You'll notice she is not wearing gloves. That's a royal protocol that she ditched because she liked to hold hands with people and make skin-to-skin contact," Lynn told Vogue, also explaining that she chose the costume jewelry for children to play with and nixed headwear because "you can't cuddle a child in a hat."

Last year, Halima Aden's name started trending because she wore a burkini (a modest swimsuit) in the Miss Minnesota USA pageant. Fast-forward to 2017 and Halima, a first-generation Somali-American, not only signed with IMG Models - the same agency that represents Gigi and Bella Hadid - but also landed a photo shoot for CR Fashion Book, run by renowned stylist Carine Roitfeld, and made her runway debut in Kanye West's Yeezy Season 5 show at Fashion Week.
"Halima is breaking boundaries of beauty and perception by being herself," said Carine, who revealed the 19-year-old caught her eye. "I find this incredibly inspiring, and I know she will be an icon."
The 10th edition of the book will be out on March 2, and Halima graces one of the two covers in her hijab. When asked about her being called a hero, Halima said:
"I wish I could tell them, 'Hey, I'm not a perfect Muslim.' A lot of people had a misconception that I would be the perfect poster child for Islam. So I got a lot of Instagram comments like, 'Oh, you don't have your neck covered, you're not a Muslim!' My thing is, stop judging women, especially if you're a man, because you don't know the responsibility that comes with wearing a hijab."
Keep your eyes on on Halima, because this future top model is just getting started.(image)

If Burberry's show at London Fashion Week was to introduce the label to a different audience, with its more experimental silhouettes, it sure captured Kendall Jenner's attention. The star stepped out with her group of girlfriends (Stella Maxwell and Bella Hadid) wearing a knitted sweater cape that just debuted on the Burberry runway.
The piece featured oversize sleeves (a trend that started on the Fall '17 runways) and exaggerated drawstrings. The look was one of many that departed from Burberry's signature refined style - a sign that the fashion house is becoming more contemporary with its designs. The sweater's wearability was quickly verified by Kendall when she paired it with a simple slip dress and black skintight booties.
Given Kendall was the first to sport this special Burberry piece, giving it a casual, cool twist, we bet it'll only be a matter of time before we start spotting it on It girls.(image)

No matter what Angelina Jolie's wearing, be it a red carpet gown or a hooded parka, she's bound to capture your attention. That's how we spotted Angelina in Cambodia, where she is promoting her new film First They Killed My Father. Surrounded by lush greenery, the star looked radiant in a silky LBD by Vanessa Seward. The three-quarter sleeve dress flowed down to her ankles while lace detailing covered up her shoulders and tattoos for a modest feel. She kept the look simple, wearing only a few bracelets and stud-like earrings.
Although this isn't the first time we've seen Angelina wearing a black dress, it's little details like the material and length that make her outfits look new every time. Plus, Angelina just has that certain je ne sais quoi, which can't be ignored. Read on to get a close-up of her dress, then shop similar options.(image)

Designer Ashish Gupta is no stranger to rainbow sequins, but this season, they took on a whole new meaning. The Ashish show was a London Fashion Week moment that'll go down in history, as models strutted down the catwalk in Americana-inspired styles like sports jerseys and letterman jackets emblazoned with politically charged slogans aimed squarely at Donald Trump.
Feminist phrases like "Nasty Woman" and "Pussy Grabs Back" jostled for space amongst pointed comments embroidered on sequinned sportswear: a New York Yankees baseball jersey played host to the phrase "Unity in Adversity," while "Unfinished Business" sparkled its way down the sleeves of one red, white, and blue USA jacket.
There were also gay pride slogans ("Why be blue when you can be gay?") and reminders to "stay woke." To finish, a positive call to arms, reminding us to be kind, to know our self-worth, and to love wholly and unconditionally. After all, in the designer's own words, "you are much lovelier than you think!"(image)

While she might have gotten her start in Hannah Montana: The Movie, Natalia Dyer has come into her own since 2009. As soon as we started watching Stranger Things, we couldn't take our eyes off the little lady who plays Nancy. At first it was just her screen presence that captured us, but when she made an appearance at the SAG Awards in a custom Miu Miu gown (that was quite honestly one of our favorite looks of the night), we thought way beyond Netflix.
Rest assured, campaigns and magazine covers are in the 20-year-old's near future. One scroll through her Instagram, and you'll note Natalia's ability to create a stylish mood board. Mix that with her red carpet choices so far, and you'll find yourself looking at fashion's next It girl. Read on to brush up on the facts and keep your eyes peeled for Natalia's next move. Whatever it is, she'll no doubt pull it off in a really great outfit.(image)

When Michelle Obama's on business, she chooses designs that are tailored. You'll find her accessorizing with a structured leather bag and perhaps a strand of pearls.

And when it comes to her dresses, they've all got a bit more movement, a bit more color, and a casual touch.
Whether they're made of linen or lace, or extend to the ground like some of her boho-style maxis, Michelle's vacation looks are bold enough to put a smile on your face. What might make you even more ecstatic, however, is shopping similar silhouettes ahead of your next getaway.

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 05:00:00 -0800I have the faintest memories of wearing socks to bed whenever I came down with a fever or got the chills at night when I was younger. My mother had the habit of turning down the heat when we slept and, as someone who gets cold easily, socks were the quickest solution to warming me up. This all ended abruptly one night when my mom caught me wearing a pair to bed. She claimed it was bad for my health (she had read about it in a book) and demanded I take them off before sleeping. My parents are very health conscious and being a kid and all, I obliged and didn't question her reasoning. After that, I hardly ever wore socks to bed and forgot about the incident altogether, until a few days ago. I had read someone else's conundrum surrounding this very same topic and my childhood memories came flooding back to me. Is the simple act of wearing socks to bed such a big deal? I had to find a logical, scientific explanation to this. No fashion question is ever too dumb or unimportant to ask - at least, that's what I was telling myself as I searched - and I felt validated when numerous posts popped up with other people wondering the same thing. I wasn't alone. The short answer to the question is: yes, wearing socks to bed is completely fine. In fact (for the insomniacs out there), it might even help you fall asleep faster. Heating up cold feet causes your blood vessels to dilate, which can signal the brain that it's time for bed. In other words, your feet regulate external temperature, so if you're feeling cold, slip on a pair of socks. If you're feeling hot, simply take them off for a better night's rest. It's all about listening to what your body needs. Although you should always wear clean socks to bed to prevent bacteria from collecting, there is nothing unhealthy about wearing your favorite fuzzy pair to sleep. I'm not only presenting these findings to my mom ASAP tonight, but I'm also buying new socks that I'll happily wear to sleep whenever I want.

Your friends and family who've known you for a long time are probably used to your lingo by now. You need not tell them one more time how to pronounce "Givenchy" and you can bet they know what a "Canadian tuxedo" looks like. But are they - and more importantly are you - completely well-versed in the fashion language? Below you'll find a list of terms we use on a day-to-day basis when we're talking all things style.
