Think you can't do the disco glitz thing without looking like a contestant on Dancing with the Stars? Think again! We've got three totally new ways to wear sequins--and affordable versions of all of 'em!--for you to try out this fall.
GO BIG: Who needs puny paillettes when you can go totally oversize? Major sequins make a major statement, like on Jennifer Garner and Jada Pinkett Smith (both in Stella McCartney). And they're not just for the red carpet--we promise you'll cause quite a fuss if you show up to your next cocktail party wearing one of these:
GO CASUAL: No fancy fetes on the upcoming calendar? No worries! You can wear sequins in the middle of the afternoon (honest!), just like Louise Roe from The City. Her henley-esque top is casual enough on its own, but paired with cuffed skinny jeans and ankle boots, it's downright "this old thing?" Opt for an athletic-inspired piece, like a sweatshirt or shorts, to get the same effect:

It looks like Whitney Port will have plenty of time to focus on her fashion design career: The reality start confirmed to Ryan Seacrest yesterday morning that MTV's The City has, in fact, been canceled.
She called into Ryan's radio show and said, "As of right now it doesn't really look like we're doing it anymore." When he asked if it was possible that the show would move from MTV to another network, Whitney told him, "No, at this point it's not." She also said she was ready to move on to her next steps: "I'm working on some other things. It's okay, one door closes and another opens."
Rumors of the show's demise have been rampant on the internet for months now, but Whitney's confession officially confirms it. We have no doubt she'll continue doing exciting things in fashion--we're big fans of her Whitney Eve line--but what we really want to know is...where will Olivia "work" now!?

A reason besides trendy below-the-knee skirts to give your minis a break: Wool shorts in plaids, tweeds and other menswear-y fabrics are a much fresher way to show a little leg.
Add tights and a shrunken boyfriend blazer when you're really feeling preppy. How about a lace top for a ladylike twist? Or maybe take them out on the town with a sequin blouse. Whatever!
Have you done the shorts-with-tights thing yet this season? Which of these is your favorite? Do tell! Find more options in the Glamour closet, here!

It was almost two years ago that we first brought you the news that Amy Winehouse would be teaming up with Fred Perry on a capsule collection--and now it's finally come true! Get your sneak peek at the 17-piece celebrity designed clothing line...
"I'm really excited about doing this collection with Fred Perry," the songstress said in a press release. "We've been working on it for a while and it's great to see it finally come to fruition." You can say that again! The news first broke back in January 2009, and we've been anticipating its arrival ever since. According to the Fred Perry team, "It's Amy all over - sharp, clever, sexy, lots of attitude - but stays true to the Perry aesthetic and unrivalled heritage. Classic pieces - the twin- tipped M12 polo shirt, the Harrington jacket, the jumper dress - are given the full Winehouse treatment and still remain instantly recognisable.

When we named Diane Kruger one of the best dressed women of last year, we had her elegance, sophistication, and very subtle take on sexiness in mind. And that's no accident--it's exactly what the star says she focuses on when getting dressed, too...
Diane recently told People her philosophy when it comes to getting dressed: "I never let clothes wear me. Above all, I dislike vulgarity. Being sexy is all good, but there is such a thing as too much."
That would explain why her red carpet looks always have just a hint of skin but never go overboard--exposed shoulders instead of cleavage, short hemlines balanced out with full skirts, peek-a-boo lace that's suggestive but not in your face. It's one of many, many reasons I think she's a style star, and it's a philosophy I tend to get behind, too.
Are you more from the school of "If you've got it, flaunt it!" like Blake Lively, Kim Kardashian, and Scarlett Johansson, or do you agree with Diane that less

It's been over a year since Lizzie Miller, the smiling blonde with the little pooch belly, captivated what felt like the entire nation's attention as "the woman on p. 194" in our September 2009 issue. So what's she up to now?
We caught up with Lizzie to talk about how her career has changed since that little 3x3 photo was published, what she thinks about the current state of the plus size modeling industry, and how she's using her visibility to do good with Curves for Change, a charitable organization created by several models from Wilhemina's WCurve division (including Julie Henderson, Bernadett Vajda, and Leona Palmer) to "advocate and support charities that benefit the empowerment of all women, no matter their size, shape, culture, or income."
STF: How exactly has your life/career changed since you became "the woman on p. 194"? Do you have any hesitations about being so well known for that one photo?
LM: It's been a snowball effect since that

Tracey already dished about the most recent inductees into the "headwear hall of fame" but even if you're not yet at Aretha Franklin's level of hat prowess (seriously-who is?) you're probably curious about how to pull off one of fall's key accessories. Luckily, we've got some advice from fashion designer Abigail Lorick and rising young milliner Gigi Burris, who collaborated together on Lorick's recent fashion week presentation.
Slaves to Fashion: What three hat styles should every girl have in her wardrobe?
Gigi Burris: An oversize beret, a feathery evening topper for special occasions and something with a veil for mysterious glamour.
Abigail Lorick: A mink pill box hat, a baseball hat and a big cashmere hat for the winter.
STF: What's the freshest hat trend we're seeing for next season?
GB: The re-invented turban! And wide '70s-style brimmed hats.
STF: What's the one hat a girl should own by the time she turns 30, aside from a winter snow hat?

Okay, so our obsession with Michelle Obama's style may border on the obsessive--but at least we're not the only ones! According to a new study published by the Harvard Business Review, her wardrobe choices have a major economic impact for designers and shareholders.
We've long acknowledged her influence on the style scene, but leave it to the business gurus to actually legitimize it! NYU professor David Yermack recently published findings that say the first lady's choice of an outfit "creates an unprecedented amount of value for the companies that make and sell the clothes she wears," and that the stock price gains after she's chosen a designer "cannot be attributed to normal market variations."
In fact, the handy little graph that accompanies his study says that the average value generated by any of her public appearances is a whopping $14 million. J. Crew's stock went up 25% after Mrs. Obama wore one of their cardigans on The Tonight Show;
