After you've given birth to your very own mini-me, it's hard to resist the urge to dress her like a tiny version of yourself. But fashion doesn't cross the generation gap very easily, and what may look great -- or at least acceptable -- on a child often just looks bizarre on a grown woman. And vice versa. Take a look.

Kate Middleton has access to all the fashion accessories in the world but her style mainstay is undoubtedly her vast clutch collection. And much like anything Middleton wears, she's pushing tiny purses into the spotlight. According to a story in The Guardian, handbag designer Lulu Guinness credits the Duchess with sparking a new handbag trend. "If she's done anything for the handbag, it's the fact that she wears small clutch bags," Guinness recently said at the Condé Nast College of Fashion & Design opening party in New York. "Personally, I am making my clutch bags smaller next season, so they're more delicate and ladylike, and that's to do with her, I think." Here are Kate's favorite clutches throughout the years.

As much as we hate to admit it, the fashion at this year's Costume Institute Benefit-a.k.a. the Metropolitan Museum of Art Gala, was a little more more "meh gala" than "Met Gala."
Considering the grandiose ball marked the official debut of the museum's upcoming exhibit "Punk: Chaos to Couture"-and attendees' attire is typically loosely inspired by the exhibition's theme-we thought we were in for a dizzying fashion spectacle filled with leather corsets, ripped flannel gowns, and maybe a combat boot or two.
While that wasn't exactly the case, we did notice that quite a few celebrities in attendance looked as if they were channeling other famous folks with their "punk" looks.
Whether it was Miley Cyrus doing her best Guy Fieri impersonation (no offense, honey: We totally thought you were one of the only ones who worked the night's theme to a T), or Sarah Jessica Parker taking cues from a rare African bird, here are 5 celebrity doppelgangers straightRead More »from Miley Cyrus Does Her Best Guy Fiere; 4 More Met Gala Doppelgängers

I really like the new modern basics from Everlane. They offer a small but carefully selected collection of shirts, bags, and scarves (for men and women), in an array of modern colors. I'd like to see more brights in their offerings and I haven't placed an order yet, but they do look promising. Plus their tees are super-affordable, with most priced at just $15!

Nicki's expensive gift To have someone specifically request to dress you for the Met Gala (a.k.a. fashion's biggest night and the most major red carpet of the year) is quite the honor, but some designers are taking it a step further and treating celebrities to lavish gifts. Case in point: Nicki Minaj, who was outfitted for the celebration of the new exhibit "Punk: Chaos to Couture" by Tommy Hilfiger.

In order to thank Minaj for her presence on the big night at his table, Hilfiger gifted her a Rolex Oyster 41 mm Day-Date II watch in Everose gold that retails for a whopping $37,000. He sent the amazing piece of jewelry to her hotel room with a note simply stating, "To Nicki - XO - Tommy," which she put a photograph of on Twitter.

Is it just us, or has Prince Harry become a giant thunder-stealer, lately? Between his hot pursuit of Jennifer Lawrence after we neglected to include him in our roundup of potential suitors and his "all in a day's work" discussion of his tour in Afganistan (conveniently just weeks after Kate's pregnancy announcement), Harry seems to be a bit of a one-upper. And now, as we all anxiously await the royal baby with bated breath (the likes of which we haven't seen since Blue Ivy), Harry has gone and revealed the baby-to-be's gender. Or, has he?

According to an inside source (who? who? who?), Harry's been unable to keep quiet about the upcoming birth of his nephew. The younger prince was also photographed carrying a blue teddy and has been reportedly spreading the news of a little boy to friends and family.

This year, the Costume Institute celebrates punk fashion, which evolved from anarchist expression into a look fit for the red carpet. But punks weren't the only fashion rebels. In fact, almost all great fashion requires a little taste for counterculture. The best fashion is ahead of its time, projecting an image of the future and shifting society's definition of beauty. Changing minds isn't easy, however. Take Alexander McQueen's low-rise bumster pants, which exposed rear ends on the runway for the first time. What was considered by some to be the tackiest type of exposure was to McQueen a source of great beauty: He felt the lower spine was the most erotic part of the body, and his silhouette elongated the torso in a way that was truly elegant. If you wore low-rise jeans in the early aughts (it is physically impossible that you did not), you owe it to a designer who was bold enough to bare some cleavage of the behind. Caution: The following looks have all

There's no "off-duty" in royal life, and so it falls to the world's kings, queens, princes, princesses-plus an empress or two-to quickly learn how to pair a tiara with bespoke McQueen. From galas to charity functions or even a weekend walk in Kensington Gardens with a certain floppy-eared cocker spaniel, these 10 royals always pull off debonair-any time of day or night.
