"Girls" is back on HBO, and after each episode we'll be highlighting one specific outfit we love. This week we're really feeling Shoshanna! Though she's often sporting slightly-old, dorky trends that can make us cringe (like her velour track suits, her peace-sign Snuggy, and her fascinator at the house party) this week she wore a cool, casual outfit that wasn't painfully matchy matchy. Here's an up close look at her latest ensemble and how you can copy it.

Michelle Dockery flashed sideboob at the SAG awardsWe know her as Lady Mary Crawley on the British TV series "Downton Abbey," but actress Michelle Dockery ditched her uptight, period piece threads for quite a racy gown at Sunday night's Screen Actor's Guild Awards. Gliding down the red carpet in her black vintage Chado Ralph Rucci gown, we felt Dockery looked fairly conservative. Why the high neckline? But as she turned to pose for cameras we gasped-Lady Mary was showing side boob!
It turns out the bust of Dockery's gown had deep side cutouts, where the opaque silk fabric was replaced with sheer, illusion mesh panels. The sexy dress left little to the imagination as Dockery's beautiful, braless bosom was captured by every camera on the red carpet and onstage as she accepted an award for best ensemble cast: drama.
Designer Ralph Rucci may not be a household name, but he's dressed many a celeb on the red carpet and been included in countless museum exhibits. Rucci attended the Fashion Institute of America and trained under HalstonRead More »from “Downton Abbey” Star Michelle Dockery Flashes Sideboob at SAG Awards
Kim Kardashian and Charlize Theron in the same yellow dress"Who wore it best" polls are incredibly popular online, and we'll admit we've even included them on Shine from time to time. The point of them, we believe, is to vote on which celebrity did the better job in terms of styling. To decide who knew the best way to accessorize and flatter their skin tone, hair, and yes, their body type. But that's where things start to get ugly. Especially in the comments section.Read More »from “Who Wore it Best” Has Become Degrading and Mean
In the latest fashion showdown, E! Online pit Kim Kardashian, a very curvy 5'2" reality star who is currently pregnant, up against Charlize Theron, a statuesque 5'10" former model. Both women were spotted in the same yellow floral peplum dress by Stella McCartney and they similarly accessorized with nude heels, red lipstick, and sleek hair. With no real noteworthy sartorial differences, the question changes from "who wore it best" to who has the hotter body. Given her slim-and-tall physique, Theron looks like she's ready to walk down a runway or star in a high fashion ad, while
Jennifer Lawrence was criticized for saying "I beat Meryl" during her Golden Globes acceptance speech, but it turned out she was citing a "First Wives Club" quote. You know what though? Beating Meryl Streep at anything is a big freaking deal, especially for a youngster! With that in mind, we've rounded up the youngest actresses to be honored by the highly respected Screen Actors Guild. They may not have beaten Meryl, but they just might some day!

"Girls" is back on HBO, and after each episode we'll be highlighting one specific outfit we love. This week we're obsessed with Jessa--she did not have enough screen time on the season two premiere! She's a free spirit who loves mixing and matching clothing that shouldn't go together but do. And she always compliments her eclectic outfits with bold accessories. We're guessing much of Jessa's wardrobe comes from her travels abroad, little boutiques, and thrift stores, but we've examined her latest ensemble and figured out how to copy it.

We are SO happy "Girls" is back on HBO-we're endlessly entertained by the hilarious banter, the realistic storylines, and, of course, the great clothes. After each episode we'll be highlighting one outfit we loved. This week our gaze is fixated on Hannah's best friend Marnie. No matter how much drama she's facing, when Marnie walks out the door she always looks confident and like she has life all figured out. We really admire that! She embraces vibrant colors, and her sophisticated sheath dresses are perfect for the office, cocktails with friends, or a book launch (though they are definitely out of place at a Bushwick loft party). Wanna copy her look from the season 2 premiere? Keep reading! By Joanna Douglas, Senior Fashion and Beauty Editor

We love the Golden Globes, because it's the perfect platform for actresses to get all gussied up yet still take fashion risks. (Sorry, Oscars!) Some of our favorite ladies looked strikingly beautiful, and others looked, well, not so hot. We've rounded up the dresses we adore and want to strip off their backs, and the ones that should have never been made.
