Ready for some non-Fashion Week fashion? Yes, they’re still rich, famous, beautiful and hanging out places we’re not invited, but I can promise that they’re not sitting front row at a fashion show though!
The 2012 Elle Style Awards:
Tali Lennox wore a dramatic, sheer Julien Macdonald gown with a flashy metallic belt. I'm sure that the grey, white & yellow confection was eye-catching in person, but I was most impressed by the intricacy of the frock.
Clearly I'm just as ready for Spring as Poppy, I sat up a little straighter and smiled a little more when I caught sight of her adorable Mary Katrantzou for TopShop dress. Too. Cute.
There were peplum dresses galore at NYFW so it was nice to see a fun, basic way to wear one from Evan. The black patent bow belt paired with the t-strap heels were perfect!
Writers Guild Awards:
So. Cute. No idea who she is, but this is adorable and age appropriate. If I could get away with wearing this, I'd be alllll over it!
I like this dress because its different. Head-turning without being scandalous or revealing, you would definitely take a second look when she walks by.
Personally, I can't wear rompers, they just do not work for me. That being said, when I looked at this picture all I could think was "Spring's coming!!!" Super cute and fun.
Marni for H&M Collection Launch:
This look is exactly what I pictured when I heard that Marni was designing a collection for H&M. Interesting combinations of prints and fabrics with a fun vintage twist. Imogen Poots looks absolutely great in this silk dress!
In case you didn’t get a chance to check out the video yet, Imogen Poots was actually the star of Sofia Copola’s commercial
for the Marni for H&M collection.
Adorable! I probably would have worn tights instead of pants with the great embellished tunic, but Jaime looks pretty great here. Love the headband.
Sofia Copola has great, low-key personal style and this look is perfectly her. Its fun, funky and has a great retro feel with the pattern and shimmery fabric.
I love polka dots and this look (or parts of it) probably would have been what I picked. I really like the bright blue and white combo - very crisp. Go Hanneli!
These are really beautiful colors on Jayma - she looks phenomenal in jewel tones but you have to admit she looks pretty great in these iridescent pastels as well.
LOVE. The styling is perfect for this simple, chic shift.
The 2012 Goya Cinema Awards:
Veronica Echegui's Gucci gown was head-turning and dramatic, that belt was the perfect accessory!
Mar Saura looked stunning in Ralph & Russo. I really love these shimmery, shiny pale gowns but they can be really hard to pull off - she makes it look effortless here.
Vanity Fair and Juicy Couture “Vanities” 20th Anniversary:
Shailene Woodley looked stylish and all grown up in her Bird by Juicy Couture jumpsuit. Very chic!
Kate Mara clearly wanted to prove that her sister wasn't the only one who could make a splash on the red carpet. Her zip-up Bird by Juicy frock is a little bit cheeky, but still very cute. Too bad she didn't throw on some brightly colored pumps!
2012 Brit Awards:
There was clearly no set dress code as the looks on this British red carpet ranged from wildly entertaining to newscaster demure - some almost reminiscent of a 90′s boy band era Grammy or VMA red carpet. Where are Justin & Britney in their all-demin outfits when you need them?
(L to R) Rihanna, Jessie J & Adele
(L to R) Caroline Flack, Cher Lloyd & Abbey Clancy
Does this give anyone else Spice Girls flashbacks?

While I have a couple great everyday looks to share with you this week, there were also some great ideas for holiday dressing - for both men & women. If you need some inspiration for your festive frocks this season definitely take a look.
Julie Bowen spiced up a great fitting sweater dress by finding one with metallic stripes. If you're going to try a similar look, definitely keep the shoes & accessories minimal so the dress does the talking.
Camilla Belle looked striking in this sparkly pink number. The black belt & shoes keep it from being too Holiday Barbie, which is good to keep in mind if you're in the mood for a bright frock.
If you're bored with traditional ties and want a standout look for your holiday office party, try a contrasting bow tie like Justin Timberlake showed off at the GQ party.
Anton Yelchin looked great in a muted plaid suit. This is a great option if you're bored by the solid black & navy suits in your closet, try out a plaid or pinstripe this season.
Kerry Washington looked chic & festive in this shiny shift dress, a great way to get a head turning look for the season without showing too much skin.
(for all GQ party pics)
Nicole Richie stunned in silver Halston at her House of Harlow launch. The bright clutch is the perfect way to spice up this look and compliment the dress.
Need some street style inspiration for between your flirty party frocks?
Parfait pour Paris! I love their jackets and overall put together-ness. She's a little bit hippie chic in her floppy hat and slouchy boots and he's a little bit hipster in his slim jeans and scarf.
This is a great Fall look captured by The Sartorialist, I especially like the ruffle-collared blouse with the pounded gold necklace combination.
This Parisian look from The Sartorialist shows you a chic and simplistic way to wear various shades of brown, black and grey. Layers layers layers!
Have a great Monday, I’ll be back tomorrow with a Holiday Dressing Style File you wont want to miss!
