Before you sit down with Hailey Baldwin and Joan Smalls on the same couch, you don't put them in the same category. Joan is a seasoned supermodel who's been walking the Victoria's Secret runway show since 2010, and she ranked No. 8 on Forbes magazine's highest-paid model list three years ago. Meanwhile, Hailey is just getting her start, solidifying relationships with big-name brands like Guess and Dolce & Gabbana. But spend five minutes with the duo, and you'll see they treat one another as if they were on the same level.
That's what's so great about the industry now: it's becoming more inclusive. Ads and magazine covers feature a wide range of women who differ in age, body type, height, and experience. I talked to Hailey and Joan about that progress before they stepped out to promote their new Karl Lagerfeld Paris campaign at Lord & Taylor. Our conversation was positive and even eye-opening when you consider how many similarities the girls share. More than anything, it excited us for what's to come for both Hailey and Joan. Read on to start tracking their careers if you haven't yet, and get some ideas for holiday gifting too.(image)

When Kendall Jenner posted on her app about going braless, it caused a case of internet chatter. No one was exactly surprised, since she's been baring hints of her nipple ring through sheer tops for a while, but Kendall isn't the only one.
Stars throughout history have walked the red carpet in glamorous gowns without a bra, some making for buzzy moments (see Gwyneth Paltrow at the Academy Awards in 2002), while others, like Kate Moss and Jennifer Aniston, casually showed off the look on the street in nothing but a fitted tee. One scroll through the undeniably sexy looks here, and you'll definitely understand the allure, even if you're not ready to ditch your bra just yet.(image)

You've probably spotted these pom-pom earrings while scrolling through your Instagram feed, or maybe on celebrities like Lupita Nyong'o and Lily Aldridge. They're pretty unmissable after all, four colorful circles connected by a thread, dripping from each ear. Though they appear glamorous as diamonds, especially when worn with a floor-length gown, the earrings are actually featherweight and they're hand-embroidered in India.
Created by fashion industry vet Rebecca de Ravenel (who studied at Parsons School of Design and worked for Oscar de la Renta and Tory Burch), these became It pieces as soon as they launched last Winter. Soon, they were sold out everywhere. But thanks to a new holiday collection and plenty of excited bloggers and stars, they're not going anywhere now. In fact, girls are coming up with plenty of ways to style them: with swimsuits on the beach, with a breezy maxi dress for a wedding, or even arranged on the coffee table as room decor.
Read on for a look at the earrings you'll want to show off to the world, then shop some of our favorite varieties available now.(image)

It doesn't matter where you're headed - Amal Clooney was only going to pay her husband, George Clooney, a visit on the set of Suburbicon - you need a luxe look like hers in your closet. What first appears to be a typical striped dress, cinched at the waist with a long sash, is actually a roomy striped jumpsuit by Tome. Amal wore it well, styled with neutral accessories, including a crossbody bag, a pair of Linda Farrow aviators, and Jimmy Choo patent leather slingbacks.
Whether you're about to jet on vacation to an island or you're walking the streets of LA, this piece makes for a one-and-done outfit that looks unique but feels effortless. Read on to invest in one of your own or shop similar styles in varying shades and silhouettes.(image)

When we first saw Rodarte's Spring '17 collection take the runway, we knew those edgy-meets-feminine designs would be a big hit. But we never expected for not one, not two, but four stars - most recently Kristen Stewart - to be rocking them within weeks after their debut. But that's not the only line that's proven full of hot commodities.
Kate Bosworth and Diane Kruger have both worn Jason Wu's fresh pieces, Kate working an embellished Boss dress at the Guggenheim Museum. The Golden Heart Awards were also reason for big names like Lily Aldridge and Kate Hudson to debut the latest Michael Kors Collection. And of course, Zoe Saldana was the latest to scoop up a dress from Elie Saab's SS'17 collection for a TWO x TWO For AIDS and Art 2016 event.
It's been mere moments since these pieces hit the catwalk, but that doesn't stop these ladies from wearing them and simultaneously proving that clothes are becoming seasonless, ready to wear at a moment's notice. Read on to see all the buzziest looks right now, then check back to see which star gets the honorable fashion nod next.

Get your passport to Paris ready, because the Eiffel Tower will be the backdrop for this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. Your favorite Angels and supermodels are headed to France for the first time ever, and their annual runway will be broadcast live on Monday, Dec. 5. OK, so your calendar's marked, but who'll be in on the action? While Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner made their VS debuts last year, we've still yet to see Bella Hadid and Hailey Baldwin walk, and neither of the four girls are confirmed for the 2016 event.
Meanwhile, we doubt iconic fixtures like Behati Prinsloo and Candice Swanepoel will strut their stuff as they relax on maternity leave. We do, however, know of 12 ladies who already got their wings. Just read on to see the official lineup, and make your predictions now for the fantasy bra. Lily Aldridge wore it in 2015, but perhaps a newcomer like Taylor Hill will get the honor this time around?(image)

We'll have to wait until October for The Walking Dead to return, but that won't stop us from trying to solve every mystery from the show - including ones we discover all on our own, after hours of binge-watching the suspenseful series. For instance: have you noticed that the majority of female walkers roam around in maxi dresses? What's the deal there? Was there a shortage of pants before this virus spread, forcing them to rock the next-best comfy staple? We really need to know!
In reality, it's probably easier for the costume department to rip up and "walker-fy" a single piece rather than a full outfit. But we'll still hold out hope that one day, our question will be explained. Until then, take a look at the maxis taking over this apocalyptic world. Then see what life was like before walkers were everywhere.(image)

Kate Middleton might be based in London, while Charlotte York's a fictional character from NYC, but you wouldn't believe the style overlap. How did it take us all this time to realize that both ladies prefer dainty bags, peplum silhouettes, and the same sort of diamond jewels?
Charlotte might have been at brunch with the girls while Kate enjoyed the China state banquet, but they wore the same accessories. And while Charlotte got glam for Carrie's wedding, Kate has walked the red carpet in a nearly identical gown. We did the research and uncovered more times they made similar fashion moves, keeping sophistication in mind. Read on to see them all.(image)

Every season there's a new trendy shade that pops up in every It girl's wardrobe, and this Fall is no different. Coined "potter's clay," by Pantone, the hue contains elements of orange and brown and is a neutral that looks great on everyone. This may be the reason why Olivia Palermo herself has been wearing the autumnal shade nonstop, incorporating it into her looks via sweaters, pants, and even belts.
Though other celebs have worn the color - and you've likely seen it all over your 'gram – Olivia's mastered this tone best of all. The rich hue not only reminds us of falling leaves, but also brings warm, fuzzy Fall memories of apple picking and pumpkin spice lattes. Read on to see how Olivia styles this potter's clay color and then incorporate it into your own clothes with our shopping picks.(image)

Finding the balance between sexy and elegant isn't always easy in a sheer wedding gowns, but Australian E! News host Ksenija Lukich nailed the challenge. She married Dan Bragg in a church ceremony in Sydney's Centennial Park wearing a semi-sheer column gown with sleeves. The custom Steven Khalil number featured extensive embroidery all over, and the delicate fabric grazed the ground as the couple took their wedding photos.
The bride only accessorized with simple pearl earrings, keeping the focus on the stunning details of her dress. Ksenija even turned around to reveal an open back, solidifying this wedding gown as one of the most beautiful creations we've ever seen. Scroll on to get a better glimpse of this bride's nontraditional gown.(image)

While we know there are more important things to worry about than what Hillary Clinton is wearing, the presidential candidate's look from the Alfred E. Smith dinner still deserves a shoutout. After all, Hillary doesn't make any ol' fashion choice just for the sake of wearing something. There's likely a good amount of thought behind it, which is why we can't help but wonder what the process was when picking out her vibrant pink Ralph Lauren Collection number.
Perhaps Hillary knew the eye-catching color would stand out in a sea of black, subliminally sending the message that she's the candidate who can truly command the attention of a room. Maybe the color choice was actually a nod to Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is also a big cause that Ralph Lauren supports. It could also just be that she was just tired of her typical suits and wanted to have fun, proving you can be a power woman who enjoys fashion, too.
No matter what the reason, one thing's for sure: Hillary nailed the look, and it definitely should be seen. Scroll through for a better view, then check out how bloggers copied her style for Halloween.(image)

There have been plenty of events where Michelle Obama dazzled in designer gowns, jeweled earrings, and metallic heels. But just as she pulls off fancy and fierce, the FLOTUS also rocks cool and casual, skipping patterned dresses for leggings, jeans, and, on occasion, sweatshirts. Scroll through to see a handful of times Michelle's outfit was way more comfy than polished, from her gardening gear to bike-riding looks. Then check out Kate Middleton following suit, wearing outfits the queen probably wouldn't approve of.(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 cochairs.
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)

Gigi and Kendall - along with the whole model pack - don't only have a knack for creating the perfect street style outfits. These girls can put together a Halloween costume with ease. They take the most expected characters, like a vampire or schoolgirl, to the next level, adding stylish little twists you might not think of right away.
Lucky for us, the models have shared their masterwork on Instagram, not only from last year's festivities but plenty of years before. Turns out, sometimes the models go out twice for Halloweekend, offering us double the inspiration for the upcoming holiday. Behold, the sexiest, spookiest costumes we found on their feeds, one of which is sure to spark an idea for your own look.(image)

Kim Kardashian's most memorable looks are, of course, sexy. How could she show off her signature style without baring, at the very least, a slip of skin? It's so obvious that Kim feels most comfortable when jaws are dropping to the floor and she's managing to shock the press, the paparazzi, or fellow celebrities. What we love most is when she pulls this off tastefully, choosing well-tailored pieces that flatter her famous curves or even her baby bump.
This year alone, we saw 10 such outfits from Ms. Karadashian-West. She set trends in motion when she was on the street and delightfully surprised us in vintage silhouettes on the red carpet. Read on for a roundup of ensembles designed by Galliano, Olivier Rousteing at Balmain, and Givenchy, but made iconic thanks to Kim's confidence when wearing them.(image)

Rachel Green was nothing if not the most stylish working woman in New York, at least in the 1990s. The Friends character gave rise to what's still one of the most iconic haircuts in history, and she mastered every trend in the book. When she was off-duty, Rachel made romantic maxi skirts look cool with simple tees, and she paired tights with smart boots for the office.
Though Rachel maintained a job at Bloomingdale's for many seasons, nowadays she would get her fashion fix at Zara. We shopped for 26 of her most memorable looks at the retailer, only to find ourselves brimming with Halloween costume ideas. Read on for a look at them all . . .(image)

We had to do a double-take when we saw Olivia Palermo shooting her latest campaign as style ambassador for Banana Republic. The fashion pro was giving us a whole new look, edgier and more tomboyish than we're used to, with nods to her signature styling quirks. So, while we know the looks are all for Banana Republic, they still have "Olivia Palermo" written all over them.
Olivia shot on New York's streets of SoHo in three outfits - a sparkly knit set, army-green separates, and a tweed top and black pants. The pieces are certainly the kind you'd expect to find in your local Banana Republic, classic and sophisticated, with subtle on-trend updates, but what really sets them apart is how Olivia wears them. She styled the army jacket with sleeves cuffed far above the elbow, allowing a generous portion of her top to hang out, giving it a more undone, casual vibe. The rest, too, she gave a cool-girl twist, loosening up a tweed set that might otherwise feel structured and conservative with buckled boots and cropped pants. And finally, she added a contemporary touch to knit separates with a knotted shirt around the waist. In each case, it's small adjustments that make the look pop - little things we can all learn from Olivia to take our outfits to the next level. Read on for the Fall styling hacks we're stealing from the trendsetter right this minute.(image)

Getting dressed for an office Halloween party is always kinda tricky: you're in need of a costume your boss will approve of - sorry, sexy cat - and definitely don't feel like going crazy for your nine to five - you've got a commute to get through, after all.
Stuck in a similar dilemma, we searched high and low for work-appropriate options and discovered a handful of brilliant ideas. These 47 looks will get the point across without causing any trouble, making getting into the Halloween spirit easier than ever. Suddenly, celebrating with your coworkers doesn't seem so scary.(image)

But in my imaginary world, she walks down the aisle in a pretty spectacular wedding dress. You see, ever since I was young, I looked at Miley as someone who represented versatility. She played two different characters on Hannah Montana, and my younger sister plastered posters of Miley all over her walls, some in which she was dressed up like Hannah, others in which she was just herself, in jeans and a three-quarter-sleeved tee. But even when she was just being Miley, the actress and singer looked unique and a little bit quirky. She's gone through many stages, but there has never been a time when Miley's paid attention to trends. During her rise to fame, she wore flares and cowboy boots, maybe because they were representative of where she came from: Franklin, TN. Post-breakup with Liam Hemsworth (the two have recently rekindled their relationship), Miley kind of went HAM with her wardrobe. And I liked it. What she wore, or didn't wear, was all a part of her personal revolution. Miley's style at this point could basically be described as costume like. She dressed as a twerking teddy bear and supported LGBT rights in rainbows and big, furry coats. Then, at the 2015 Met Gala, the industry's elite gathered on the red carpet, but Miley stood alone in a cutout Alexander Wang gown. It ended up on some "worst dressed" lists, but I think it was my favorite outfit of the night. It didn't seem like Miley was trying to appear sexy or edgy but just to look like herself. So now, as outsiders speculate whether Miley and Liam are engaged, I can't help but to imagine her would-be bridal look. I doubt Miley Cyrus's wedding dress will be all white. It might be neon, a mix of colors, or come with an inflatable skirt. Miley might not wear a wedding dress at all, should she get married. Maybe she'll go naked. She recently revealed on the Today show that she prefers to stay out of the fashion conversation: "I don't want people to talk about what I'm wearing. That's usually why I don't wear too much," she said. One thing's for sure: if Miley Cyrus gets married, her look won't include a ballgown so glamorous, everyone focuses on the pretty (or crazy!) details. They won't be talking about The Dress, because god knows it won't be wearing her. It'll be all about Miley. Read on to see why we know Miley will hit it out of the park on her special day.

So you received an invitation to a Fall or Winter wedding. The next burning question is likely, "What do I wear?!" You want to look amazing, but the cooler temps play a factor on how much skin you should show. This is when we turn our attention to more modest dresses, like styles with three-quarter sleeves and knee-length hems. They provide the coverage you need to stay warm (a must) and most importantly, you'll never be inappropriately dressed for the wedding or reception. Once you see the trendy selections ahead, you'll realize arriving to the venue in a barely there gown isn't the best option in the world anyway.(image)

You've probably seen China's first lady, Peng Liyuan, before. Standing alongside Kate Middleton or Michelle Obama at a state affair, she's hard to miss. In fact, Peng Liyuan's wardrobe is essentially a rainbow - she's a bold power dresser with a coat in every color. Oh, and the tricks she can pull off with a skinny belt? Let's just say she's been working Olivia Palermo-level styling tricks for quite some time.
While the 54-year-old politician (and contemporary folk singer!) doesn't routinely release details on her outfits, it's safe to say she's a woman with a smart sense of fashion, sticking to her sophisticated uniform of blazers, brooches, and dainty clutches - all of which she coordinates with gorgeous silk gowns.
Liyuan is one of Vanity Fair's best dressed, and she was recently recognized as one of Porter magazine's 100 Incredible Women for spotlighting Chinese designers at perfectly appropriate events. With each appearance she makes, Peng Liyuan soars higher on our list of style icons. Read on for 50 solid reasons.(image)

You would have never known that I organize and overhaul the wardrobes of clients for a living, let alone write books on the subject, if you had seen the state of my closet last week. Standing in my closet last Sunday while trying desperately to find something to wear to brunch led to the realization that my closet was leading a double life. It's not that it was a "hot mess," organizationally speaking. It was, however, glaringly obvious that everything in there represented my previous life, a very different life from the one I am currently living. A closet filled with four-inch heels and designer duds snagged at countless samples sales (read: I worked at Neiman Marcus corporate for almost a decade and everyone drives everywhere in Dallas) does not a smooth transition to the Bay Area make.
So, I made another cup of coffee, turned on my "Closet Overhaul" Spotify playlist, and did to my own closet what I have done hundreds of times for clients in the past.
I picked up the first hanger and asked the million dollar closet question that works like a charm every time I need to make, or assist a client in making, a decision on what stays and what goes. Two hours and several hangers later, I had over 100 items crammed on a rolling rack ready to donate. Cue: mic drop - and it all started with this question . . .(image)
