Sure, we're totally lusting after the designs we saw on the runway during Fashion Week in New York and London. But, in real life, we wear more Zara and Topshop than rag & bone and Alexander Wang. Shelling out thousands of dollars per outfit isn't exactly practical for our life plan (which generally includes needing food and shelter). But, just because we don't have the funds to don designer getups on the regular doesn't mean we don't still look good - like really good. Our secret? We're constantly seeking out those savings-friendly pieces that look anything but cheap.

And, the pickings are a lot better than one might expect - as long as you're willing to do a little digging (or let us do it for you!). Plus, this tricky, transitional period between winter and spring means you'll be able to score big on all those end-of-season sales. So, in the spirit of saving, we put together four under-$75 outfits that will make you look like a millionaire - even on a broke-girl's budget. Click ahead and say bye-bye to buyer's remorse!

The fun thing about fashion is that it's always changing. Out with the old, in with new! Right now, we're all about fighting February's mid-winter blues with a fun, fierce mix of basics and far-out accessories-think too-cool French girl with a Teen Vogue twist. Our inspiration is the above street style snap of model Jessica Hart at Paris Fashion Week. A bright white top looks fresh after months of sweater weather, while her thin-soled sneakers reinterpret the slip-on trend.
What else is on our shopping list? A look-at-me moto jacket from Gap to keep you warm, and Solé's latest candy-colored bicycle to make getting around town fun, whether you're racing through the Parisian streets or heading home from school. And since prom is just around the corner, be sure to check out BaubleBar's latest blingy collab, as well as embellished friendship bracelets from Ana Karolina.

- Wed, Feb 19, 2014 6:00 PM EST | CommentsStraight couples aren't the only people who fall in love, and a New York-based photographer hopes to show the world that the affection between two men and two women is just as beautiful.
Braden Summers' photo series "All Love is Equal" features gay and lesbian couples sharing an intimate moment in different cities all across the globe. The photographer traveled the world for six weeks, visiting the UK, France, India, Lebanon, Brazil and the US, using both real-life couples and models to present romantic imagery many don't often get to see."When thinking of iconic romance, ask yourself if any imagery (paintings, photographs, film-stills) comes to mind that is not showing heterosexual couples? Probably not," he writes on his website. "I would like to use this work as a platform to discuss what that is and how to change it."
- Wed, Feb 19, 2014 6:36 PM EST | CommentsWhether you met your fiancé in Psych 101 or you're just a diehard fan of your beloved alma mater, going back to school for your wedding can be as meaningful as it gets. We rounded up twenty-five jaw-dropping campus chapels - some exclusive to alumni of that college and some not, and some that welcome all religions and some that limit ceremonies to one faith - that are as gorgeous as they are significant. Did we miss your university's amazing chapel? Let us know in the comments!

In the midst of both red carpet season and Fall 2014 fashion month, it can be easy to overlook the actual designers-those talents who spend countless hours outfitting celebrities for awards shows in addition to creating and showcasing their brand-new collections. Then, there's also the models, actresses and recording artists who help promote those same clothes.
Enter the annual Elle Style Awards, an evening to commemorate the fashion industry's key players of the year. At last night's ceremony, awards for Actress of the Year and Contemporary Designer of the Year went to Emma Watson and Isabel Marant, respectively, while Katy Perry walked away with the evening's highest honor, Woman of the Year, wearing a charming Vivienne Westwood dress. And in further beauty news, Suki Waterhouse (and her obsession-worthy bangs) landed the Model of the Year award. Exciting!
But let's pose the most important question, shall we: What did they wear? Click through the slideshow above to our favorite dressed-to-the-nines recipients, presenters and guests from the 2014 Elle Style Awards.

We'll admit it: last week, we were stunned upon discovering that two-time Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover girl Kate Upton hadn't landed the coveted front of the special-edition glossy for the third time running. That's not to say we weren't into the booty-baring shot of Chrissy Teigen, Lily Aldridge and Nina Agdal that did land the cover, but frankly, we were a bit disappointed in the lack of Upton love.
As it turns out, however, the 21-year-old did land her very own SI cover…sort of. Tucked behind the front of the issue, you'll find Kate gracing a bonus foldout cover in a coral-colored bikini (check out the shot below). But wait…there's more! Kate's also the subject of the issue's "Zero G" shoot, which features her bouncing (there's really no other word for it, folks) around inside an anti-gravity room (or is it a plane?) in Cape Canaveral wearing an assortment of gold swimwear. And while her celebrated curves are certainly looking as buoyant as ever in the spread-which you can peep in the gallery above-her ultra-glamorous blonde waves are nothing to scoff at, either. Is it even possible to have a bad hair day in space?
Click on over to Swimsuit.SI.com for more shots from Kate Upton's latest photoshoot-and for Sports Illustrated's behind-the-scenes video showing how the "Zero G" story came to be (unless you're prone to motion sickness, in which case, maybe skip that one).

While New York Fashion Week's Fall 2014 shows as a whole had a serious shortage of high heels, a number of major designers included impressively towering shoes amidst the abundance of flats. On the catwalk, Erin Fetherston's dainty designs paired nicely with clear-sided pumps, while Marchesa featured intricate, strappy sandals. The season's street style stars and front row celebrities proved that the craziest-and at times, most uncomfortable-high heels are far from dead. While we'll happily slip into a beautiful pair of towering heels any day, we figured we could use a few tips from those in the fashion business who know the shoes best.
To that end, we asked around throughout NYFW for models' and celebrities' tried-and-true tips for how to walk in sky-high heels. Click through the slideshow above for your go-to guide for getting around in stilettos, and you'll be strutting it like a pro in no time.
