Jason LaVeris/FilmMagic (2)The Carrie remake starring Chloe Moretz hits theaters nationwide on October 18, but between the premieres and impromptu coffee shop pranks by the crew, the film is already making quite the buzz. At the screening in Hollywood last night, Moretz coordinated the deep tones of her Valentino gown with her studded nail art, and we loved the look so much, we tracked down the exact products she used! "Chloe wanted an Earth-toned polish and this color jumped out at us right away," said her manicurist Christina Aviles, who used Sephora's Formula X lacquer in Perfection. "It's a darker taupe that looks great on any skin tone, and was just a beautiful complement to the colors in her gown. We added the studs to enhance her chic and sophisticated look." After layering on the base coat, color, and two swipes of clear top coat, Aviles applied the black studs to each nail by pressing the 3D element into the slightly wet lacquer in lieu of nail glue.

Yes, it could confuse your friends and family, but with a few pins, you can turn long hair into a short crop and then go back to long the next day. "It's an easy way to get a dramatically different style without committing to a chop," says Marcus Francis, who did Kerry Washington's look. Here's how to test-drive the trend in three easy steps.
Create a deep side part, then divide hair into three sections.
Bend each piece of hair under, securing the ends against your head by crisscrossing two Goody Colour Collection bobby pins ($4/50 at target.com). (Thick hair may require more.)

NAV/FameFlynet Pictures; Courtesy PhotoWe're starry-eyed for this look! Twilight actress Ashley Greene turned to the sky for some daytime inspiration. She was spotted running errands in West Hollywood in a wool-blend knit from Express with an all-over stellar intarsia pattern. She completed her casual-chic look with a pair of denim skinnies and loafers. For a more polished spin, style the sweater with a circle skirt or a bright pencil skirt with heels, instead (sweater-skirt combos make for perfect transitional dressing). Scoop up the sweater at express.com in black-and-white or red-and-black for $60-now, that's a steal.Read More »from Get Ashley Greene’s Look for Only $60

Andy Colo/AKM-GSIWhen Taylor Swift isn't performing onstage during one of her sold-out concerts or writing up her next hit single, she's just like every girl who takes her favorite bag out on the town! The musician was recently spotted carrying her hunter green Christian Louboutin Farida Bowler handbag everywhere from day jaunts to post-workout sessions at the gym. The leather bowler tote features pockets on both the front and back of the bag, hand-rolled handles and buckles whose intricate engraving was inspired by ancient Moroccan jewelry, plus, lest we forget what makes it a Louboutin, the interior is lined with the signature red fabric. Although Swift's green version of the bag is no longer available, you can snag the same tote in black for $1,895 available at barneys.com or at select Christian Louboutin boutiques. Bonus: You can also steal her leopard printed sweater in a similar color for $190 at wildfoxcouture.com.Read More »from Found It! Taylor Swift’s Christian Louboutin Bowler Handbag

Chalk it up to her mile-high coiff, perfect cat-eye, and blood red lipstick, but Elvira is always a popular costume choice every Halloween. Now, thanks to her seductive trio of fragrances, you can invoke your inner temptress if you're planning on paying homage to everyone's favorite Mistress of the Dark. The star has teamed up with Demeter to create three sultry scents, and we caught up with her to get all the details on each one! "I've been wanting to do a fragrance for a while, and I loved Demeter's," she tells InStyle.com exclusively. "One of my favorites was Holy Water-I always keep a bottle with me, you know, just in case vampires are around."
Elvira's own collection includes Elvira's Black Roses, Elvira's Vamp, and Elvira's Zombie, but this isn't her first foray into fragrance-back in the '80s, she had a scent called Elvira's Evil, but these three are brand-new and very Elvira. "Typically, I like dark, sexy scents, and I like fragrances with musk and vanilla bean in them,

Time to grab your cowboy boots and sing along again as season two of Nashville premiered on ABC this week-Southern grit and glamour is back! InStyle happily hopped on the phone with costume designer Susie DeSanto to get the exclusive low down on what to expect from both Rayna (Connie Britton) and Juliette (Hayden Panettiere) this season as their rivalry continues on and off stage. "In terms of Juliette, she's trying to move away from the teeny-bopper look and have more of a sophisticated [style] as she wants to be taken more seriously. This season she will be wearing more serious designers," Susie tells InStyle. "And I was trying to give the season opener a monochromic look, trying to give the show a little more of a cinematic feel and blend the palette." Mission accomplished!

Gilbert Flores/BroadimageThere's a reason Sofia Vergara looked amazing at the 2013 Emmy Awards-her red-hot Vera Wang gown was custom-made to fit and flatter her every curve. "Vera offered to make a dress for me, and of course I was very flattered," the stunning actress told InStyle.com at the launch event for her latest Kmart collection. "My hair is blonde this year, and I wanted a contrast. She was willing to do two very beautiful red dresses in different shades for me," she said. But what really had everyone atwitter (and tweeting) on Emmy night was when Vergara publicly announced she was wearing Kmart underwear. "I always wear Kmart underwear because they're super-cute," she told us. "Last year, I had a wardrobe malfunction and you could see everything. This year, I was prepared because you never know!" Her Kmart lingerie line launched late last year, and she's been busy ever since creating new collections, including her upcoming fall/holiday line that plays up the aesthetics of her two favorite cities: NewRead More »from With the Emmys Over, We Asked Sofia Vergara What She Might Wear to the Golden Globes

Tony Barson/Getty ImagesNow here's a site we'll definitely be adding to our RSS feeds-Thandie Newton's beauty blog has officially launched! We first heard news of the star's latest venture when we spoke to her at the Toronto Film Festival, and we've been eagerly waiting for the blog to go live ever since. "It's really exciting! It's like in the format of a magazine," Newton told InStyle. "It's about pushing diversity, adding to what's already happening." ThandieKay.com is a collaborative effort between the star and makeup artist Kay Montano, and despite Montano's impressive resume, Newton is positive that her down-to-earth advice will become apparent. "What is great is that you realize she's a regular woman, so it makes regular women realize that they have all the power," she added. "She similarly wants to celebrate diversity, because it's what inspired both of us. We've traveled a lot, met a lot of incredible people, and so it's about giving that back. It's really authentic." We'll say! The blog is alreadyRead More »from Thandie Newton Has Joined the Beauty Blogging World!
