INFphoto, CourtesyMichelle Williams' street style is fierce. The actress didn't let the wee hours of the morning put a damper on her look as she walked daughter Matilda to school, dropping her off in an ensemble that managed to perfectly encapsulate both preppy-chic and rocker-edge. She layered a white cable knit sweater over a chambray shirt and paired it with black leather pants. The kicker? On-trend leopard-print slip-ons to tie her whole look together. Animal print has become so ubiquitous, it's practically synonymous with classic neutrals while still retaining its bite, which means you can team it with just about anything for a refreshing spin. Effortlessly cool and comfortable, copy Williams and step up your style game with Sandro's "Anaconda" sneaks for $425 at sandro-paris.com.

Courtesy Photo; Franco Origlia/Getty ImagesIt wasn't just her stunning Christian Dior Couture gown that caught our eye at The Hunger Games: Catching Fire premiere in Italy; it was also the elegant, diamond-encrusted gold cuff glittering from Jennifer Lawrence's right hand. We called out the popularity of skinny cuffs earlier this year, and it looks as though the statement-making trend has migrated South, down from arms to palms, with JLaw spearheading the movement. The one wrapped around her hand is the Ana Khouri stem hand bracelet dotted with 1.50-carats of pave diamonds. If you have $21,050 to spare (we wish!), you can scoop up the rose gold version at net-a-porter.com. And if you don't, that's ok-just commit this trend to memory because we predict hand bracelets will be the next big thing.

In our December cover story, the gorgeous Hunger Games star and Oscar winner opens up to writer Mike Sager about on-set antics, crashing on friends' couches, and why there's just no motivating her to diet. But there's plenty more Lawrence shared with us, including how no one hits on her (say what?!) and her first big splurge (we would've opted for a new Céline bag-just sayin'). To read the full interview, be sure to pick up InStyle's December issue, available on newsstands and for digital download now.
On being a sex symbol:
"I don't see, feel or experience any of that. I don't think about it. And nobody's hitting on me. And that's okay. It's really fine."
On understanding the male psyche:
"Having brothers turned me into a 'male sympathist.' I get where guys are coming from. If a girlfriend says to me, 'He went to Paris and didn't call me,' I'm like, he went to Paris! If it was my brother, I'd tell him not to call, just have fun."

Barbie has undergone a holiday makeover, thanks to famed milliner Stephen Jones. As the latest designer to take on Barbie, Jones has created head-to-toe couture looks for the doll, which will be sold exclusively at Selfridges in London. The British hat maker has designed five custom looks for Barbie in homage to the holiday season: Happy Holly Barbie, Toffee Ice Barbie, Snow Globe Barbie, Santa Baby Barbie, and Christmas Tree Barbie (she lights up!). The milliner-a favorite of Kate Middleton, Victoria Beckham, and Rihanna-not only created statement fascinators for Barbie, but embraced the holiday theme for each of her overall looks. "Barbie is the most fabulous private client. She came into the salon for her Christmas morning hat and left with five glamorous outfits!," Jones said in a statement. "Barbie and I have the same design vision; we love tradition, but have an eye for the future." Jones joins a long list of fashion designers and brands who have dressed the doll, includingRead More »from Designer Stephen Jones Gives a Whole New Meaning to “Holiday Barbie”

WireImage, Getty ImagesRebecca Romijn has traded in her long locks for a short, modern bob. While many celebrities change up their hairstyle a few days or weeks before a big event, Rebecca Romijn gave her long layers the chop just one hour before arriving at Jessica Alba's second annual Baby2Baby Gala in Culver City, CA. "Campbell McAuley cut it. I was panicking in the car on the way over because I literally did it an hour ago, and that I got in the car and realized there were no mirrors around," she told InStyle. "I felt it was time for a change. I had a couple of Brazilian blowouts in the last five years, and wanted to get rid of all that. Once in a while, change is good!" We agree, and we have to say, the shorter style looks amazing on the star. Her husband Jerry O'Connell shared the sentiment. "This is the first time I've ever seen her with short hair. I love it!" he told InStyle, noting that one of his children didn't take it quite as well since she loved Romijn's hair long. "But I'm hoping that myRead More »from Get Exclusive Details on Rebecca Romijn’s Chin-Skimming Bob

The pixie cut is certainly having a moment! Not long after Jennifer Hudson revealed her dramatic chop last week,Jennifer Lawrence, Kristin Chenoweth, and Pamela Anderson quickly followed suit, and we don't blame them-the style is super-flattering, and we're considering making the change ourselves. That's why we just had to ask Chenoweth's hairstylist Jonathan Hanousek for his expert tips on what to consider before getting a pixie cut, and how to keep the style on point (like Chenoweth's stellar vocals!).
"I am loving this trend toward short hair in Hollywood. The reality is that women are sexy with short hair, and I feel like it shows strong self-confidence," he told InStyle.com. "Almost anyone can wear their hair shorter, but keep in mind that everyone's features are different and that you need to make adjustments accordingly." Hanousek recommends picking your most-striking feature, and playing that up. "If you like your eyes, then cutting your fringe just below your brows willRead More »from Would You Get a Pixie Cut?

Lately it seems as if Tom Ford is Justin Timberlake's own personal stylist! Ford designed 600 individual pieces for Justin Timberlake's 20/20 Experience World Tour, which kicked off at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York this week. Aside from 8 different outfits for Timberlake himself, the designer created original looks for all the backup dancers, band members, and vocalists. This is the first time Ford has crafted an entire wardrobe for a world tour, but he and Timberlake are certainly not strangers - Ford designed the ensembles for the singer's "Suit & Tie" video as well as his 20/20 Experience album artwork, and also dressed him for the 2013 Grammy Awards. "Justin has great personal style and knows what he wants, which makes designing for him an absolute pleasure," Ford said in a statement. "He is a tremendous talent and has a kind of effortless cool that makes classic menswear tailoring modern." Catch all the designs in action by picking up tickets to Justin's 20/20Read More »from Tom Ford Designed 600 Pieces for Justin Timberlake’s 20/20 Experience World Tour

WireImage (2); LandovIt's back to the bob for Jennifer Aniston! Earlier this week, the star was spotted at the airport, working a similar look to her chin-skimming styles of years past (showcased here). The reason behind her big change? "Honestly, I was bored," she told InStyle.com exclusively, laughing. "We did a photo shoot and it was one of those things where I was bored with my previous look, and my friend Gucci [Westman] did my makeup-she had gotten a really cute haircut, so I got inspired by that. It was definitely time to get another cut since it's been a couple of years." The style, which hits just below the chin, is the work of Aniston's long-time hairstylist Chris McMillan, and if you're suddenly feeling inspired to make the change as well, McMillan recommends asking for an A-line bob with no hard edges when you arrive at the salon. "We are calling this look the un-precious bob. The hair has long pieces in the front and is shorter in the back," he told us. "It will honestly work on all hairRead More »from Jennifer Aniston’s Bobbed Haircut: Exclusive Details from the Star and Her Hairstylists!
