While we love her whole ensemble, what really caught our eye were the style icon's artfully aged jeans. Palermo has been spotted in these pants on multiple occasions over the past year-from running errands in New York to taking in the sights in Paris. The AG Adriano Goldschmied "The Legging Ankle in 18 Years Destroyed" feature a super skinny fit and cropped ankle length, and have been broken in with heavy doses of shredding. The subtle rips combined with theRead More »from Found It! Olivia Palermo’s Perfectly Torn Jeans

- Danny Martindale/WireImageWhile sitting front row at Matthew Williamson's fall/winter 2014 show, Olivia Palermo was without her usual companion, fiancé Johannes Huebl, but her masterfully styled ensemble made up for his absence. The recently engaged star opted for a casual chic look that consisted of a Mary Katrantzou silk embellished jacket layered over a long-sleeve fuchsia top, AG Adriano Goldschmied skinny jeans, and Fendi booties with a striped fur panel (that she's worn before). Palermo rarely misses the mark, and this look is no exception.

Well, that was fast! Traditionally, it takes six months for runway looks to make their way into stores. But ever the non-traditional (he did showcase his fall 2014 collection in Brooklyn, after all), Alexander Wang cut the lead time completely for one of his ready-to-wear accessories, making it available for purchase just days after his show. The thermo-reactive black calf leather Alexander Wang bag is sensitive to heat (like a mood ring!), transforming into a citron hue upon contact-a feature played out during Wang's super high-tech show with heat-activated leather clothes. The 'Chastity' makeup pouch comes with a rhodium snake chain handle and a detachable mirror.
And at $375, the bag is yours, thanks to an exclusive partnership struck between the designer and Fancy.com, a social shopping app that lets users explore a curated collection of goods. Naturally, the bag sold out rather quickly, but don't worry bagophiles (and AlexWang-ophiles), we got the dirt straight fromRead More »from Hot Off the Runway: This Heat-Activated Alexander Wang Bag

Startraksphoto; Courtesy PhotoOlivia Palermo was spotted braving the freezing temperatures last week looking effortlessly chic. Never one to sacrifice her style, Palermo exposed her ankles to the cold in these leopard print ankle pants-which she paired with a polkadot button down, fur-collared coat, patterned sunnies, patent leather booties, and a radiant orchid handbag. If anything, this ensemble is an indication of the fashion star's innate ability to perfectly mix bold patterns and vibrant hues in one look.
But it also proves Palermo's versatility for mixing high end designers with more affordable options; specifically, her Banana Republic "Sloan" trousers, which feature a sleek, cropped leg and bi-stretch fabric for optimum comfort.

FGA /Landov; Courtesy PhotoOn February 14, the monogamists of the world will wear their hearts on their sleeves, but we'd bet a pretty penny that Emma Roberts will wear hers around her neck too. The Adult World actress, who recently became engaged to her co-star Evan Peters, stepped out for a romantic couple's dinner in West Hollywood wearing a whimsical heart necklace by Cali jeweler Maya Brenner. What we assume has to be a gift from her beau, the sterling silver strand comes on a 22-inch chain that hangs just low enough so it's perfect for layering over other delicate pieces. The long length also toughens up the heart motif. "I wanted to take what's traditionally a very feminine shape and give it a little edge, so I made the heart larger and the length of the necklace longer," Brenner told InStyle.com. If you want to steal Emma's style (or prod your boyfriend to do it for you), then shop her charming neckpiece for $180 at mayabrenner.com.

Here comes the bride! That's right, Miss Piggy-if all goes according to plan with the groom of course-could be heading down the aisle towards her longtime love, Kermit the Frog, in the upcoming Muppets Most Wanted. As for her wedding dress, you can expect to see the celebrated muppet in a custom Vivienne Westwood gown no less. Not a bad way to say "I do!"
"Vivienne Westwood is fabulous-just like moi," says Miss Piggy in a statement. "When I asked her to design this wedding dress for moi's new movie Muppets Most Wanted, she was thrilled and I was thrilled. The only one a bit 'iffy' about it was the Frog," she adds.
Miss Piggy's dream wedding gown is a couture Long Ivory Court corset gown, detailed with recycled paillettes made from plastic bottles complete with an ivory tulle veil, which calls to mind Westwood's previous wedding dress she created for Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City. This time around, we hope to see the nuptials. Don't miss the could-be wedding of theRead More »from Get the First Look at Miss Piggy’s (Possible) Wedding Dress by Vivienne Westwood

Imaxtree, CourtesyLela Rose debuted her fall 2014 collection this weekend, and while we were captivated by the gorgeous designs that walked the runway (see the pretty feathered confection shown), we couldn't help but notice the glittering shoes that accessorized her sophisticated yet whimsy line. This season she teamed up with footwear designer Jerome Rousseau to create heels and booties to accompany her pretty dresses and ladylike separates. "Jerome's designs have this feminine and whimsical detail to them that really compliments my aesthetic," says Rose.
For their partnership, Rousseau revamped his classic pump, taking the iconic look and adding a bit of pizzaz in the form of high-shine sparkle. "There is a great play of color, material, and attention to detail in this collection which is also important," says Rousseau. "This made collaborating with Lela extremely seamless and fun." With spring around the corner, we'll have to wait to snap up Rose's designs, but thankfully a sampling of theRead More »from Lela Rose Teams Up with Footwear Designer Jerome Rousseau on a Line of High-Shine Shoes

Girls darling Zosia Mamet has an appetite for vivacious fashion, always incorporating bold, colorful choices and strong patterns into her ensemble, and always managing to make it all look completely effortless. But how did she come to have such an insatiable hunger for that unique style of hers? "I didn't learn until a little later in life that your style doesn't necessarily need to be defined," she told InStyle.com backstage at the Rebecca Taylor runway show in New York City on Saturday afternoon. "Sometimes people get caught in the confines of their style, like you'll hear a woman say 'that's not me' when in reality, if you like it, it is you. I try to not be afraid of that."
Mamet explains that her signature style is typically "pretty wacky for the most part," and involves experimenting with trends while keeping a focus on comfort. "I really like that every day is dress up, and I'll have days where I wear black leggings and a sweatshirt, or days when I wear snakeskin pants that myRead More »from 'Girls' Star Zosia Mamet on Her “Wacky” Style and the Art of “Looking Cute in the Cold”

The 2014 Winter Olympics have begun! With coverage on NBC already in full effect, and this time around there's something for everyone, especially with a record amount of programming for all 98 events. Not to mention, this is quite an Olympics of firsts. We've picked the best of the fun facts that are already making Sochi memorable:
1. Most Expensive Olympics Games. Ever.
With yet-to-be-revealed performing acts for Friday's opening ceremonies and stockpiles of snow on hand (yes, Sochi is actually a resort city), we're beginning to see why this Games has cost more than $50 billion to put together. We're definitely intrigued.
2. Sporting Events Before the Opening Ceremonies
For the first time ever, to accommodate 12 new events in the mix, competition begins a full day before the Parade of Nations. Two of the new additions, the team figure skating event and men's/women's snowboard slopestyle, took place on Thursday.
