Allesandro Ambrosio looks summer ready in her Tolani print strapless dress. The mixture of prints is a great way to add a touch of pizzaz to a summer dress, but if you find this trend tricky to pull off you are in luck - this Tolani dress does it for you. The hi-lo hem updates a strapless silhouette with a modern and fresh feel.
Kelly Rutherford, seen here at a NYC screening for Farewell, My Queen, adds depth and a tiny bit of edge (while keeping it minimal) to a LWD by accessorizing with different shades of the same hue – tan and brown. Hermes handbag an Lanvin shoes.
Olivia Palermo, at Christian Dior’s Haute Couture show in Paris last week (in all Dior), proves that a leather top can be summer friendly. The key, keep the top sleeveless and pairing it with a pair of shorts helps to ensure your look reads summer not fall.
Jennifer Lawrence (in Dior), also at the Christian Dior Haute Couture show in Paris, does justice to the lady-like trend in the print du jour – florals. Choose a dress with a fuller skirt and a few inches above the knee to keep the look young and fresh. Keeping the floral print in one color will maintain that feminine feel.
Miranda Kerr takes basics and gives them a healthy dose of pizzaz. Her A.L.C cropped trousers get a face-lift with tuxedo stripes, giving her sleeveless Equipment shirt ensemble some serious sex appeal. Manolo Blahnik pointy toe pumps and Stella McCartney sunglasses take this sexy look and adds a shot chicness.
Michelle Williams at Comic-Con 2012, adds a pop of color to her black and white floral print Giulietta Resort dress with raspberry Giuseppe Zanotti platform heels. The trapeze silhouette needs a healthy flash of legs to keep it from becoming too matronly. Make sure the shoes are on the chunkier side to keep the dress fun and light.
Rachel McAdams, arriving at the BBC 1 studios in London to promote her new film The Vow, cuts a dapper figure in a collarless buckle-clasp wool coat by The Row. Underneath her divine coat Rachel wears a flirty black skater dress with a leather peter pan collar by Lover and nude Brian Atwood pumps with ankle straps.
Rachel’s personal style is casual (except for when on the red carpet) and her love of vintage pieces reflects her appreciation of the past. “Most of my fashion sense growing up was from my mum, who’s a beautiful lady, so I guess I have her to thank for any of those inclinations.” Her style tip for life is to always, “Wear what you love. I think clothes always look the best if you’re enjoying what you’re wearing and you feel good in it. That’s all that matters.”
The Vow, which opens February 10 and also stars Channing Tatum, is bound to be another romantic blockbuster for Rachel and who knows, may make Channing Tatum this generation’s next leading man.

Candice Swanepoel definitely knows how to work a provocative ensemble, all the while looking chic and sophisticated at the same time. As a supermodel and face of Victoria’s Secret it should really come as no surprise that her beautiful undergarment-a black crocheted black bra, topped with sheer webbing up the decolletage would be a head-turner.
On par with one of Fall 2011′s most luxurious trends, Candice carries a lush fur coat, the perfect piece to wrap up her entire look. While commiserating with other superstars at the Fall 2011 Christian Dior runway show, we are almost certain Candice was the focus of the event.
