  • Divergent Star Shailene Woodley is Our Glamour Style Icon of the Week--Come See Her Fashion Transformation

    by Fawnia Soo Hoo

    Remember when Shailene Woodley played the original Kaitlin Cooper on The O.C. (and her pony had alopecia)? Then, while starring on the ABC Family teen-mom show The Secret Life of an American Teenager, she totally blew it out of the water with a Golden Globe-nominated role in The Descendants. Now, the world is waiting with bated breath to see if she can topple the Hunger Games' reign on the YA genre with Divergent, opening this Friday. And along the way, Shailene has come into her own on a fashion level--skillfully trying out edgy new designers while stunning in the classics. Thereby, we must honor the talented 22-year-old with the Glamour Style Icon of the Week award. Let's take a look:

  • Keira Knightley's Chanel Wedding Dress, Which She's Worn 100 Times, is Dunzo

    RIP, Keira Knightley's wedding dress. Insert sad-face emoticon here.


    The beautiful, puffball-lite Chanel midlength strapless number that Knightley wore for her wedding last year--and in 2008, and at a red carpet event in December--is officially dunzo. She killed it--with red wine--according to an interview in this weekend's Telegraph:

    "It's now got red wine spilled down the front because the last time I wore it my friend went like this"--she juts out her elbows--"and now it's everywhere. I didn't quite realise the extent of it until I got home. It's quite impressively splattered. But, hey, a good night is a good night, and when a dress has had its time, maybe it's had its time. I'm pretty sure I can get it out but, if I can't, I'm happy with the memory of a good night and the story of how the dress got destroyed."

  • Kate Middleton Celebrates St. Patrick's Day in New Green Coat, Family-Heirloom Brooch

    This morning in London, Kate Middleton graced the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade wearing a brand-new green coat. This is major news considering that she wore the same pleated Emilia Wickstead coat for the past two St Paddy's Day celebrations.

    Pretty, right? To switch things up the third time around, the Duchess opted for a trench-style Hobbs Persephone coat. She accessorized with a color-coordinated trifecta of a fascinator, suede pumps, and clutch, plus a gold Cartier shamrock brooch, which was partially obscured by a foliage pin. Here's a closer look:

    The piece is another heirloom-slash-treasure borrowed from the royal-family vaults. Queen Alexandra first wore it in 1901. This morning's royal appearance also marks Prince William and Kate's first joint outing of the year. So many things to celebrate today!

  • Go for a Cozy-Sporty Weekend Outfit with a V-Neck Sweater and Jeans

    Well, I'm feeling all sorts of '90s warm-and-fuzzies--not to mention fashion envy--when looking at Jaime King's weekend-perfect preppy-meets-sporty outfit.

    I've been flirting with the idea of revisiting hightops but couldn't quite figure out how (and not look like I was trying too hard), but then Jaime proved that it's so easy. She wore her kicks with her Rag & Bone country-club-cool Talia sweater and a pair of skinny-skinny jeans for proportion. Not opting for a cami or tank under her V-neck gave the otherwise sporty look a dash of breezy flirtatiousness.

    Plus, preppy oversize sweaters totally work with pretty, flowy dresses too. For evidence, see: Miroslava Duma and the Prada fall 2014 runway. I can never resist a versatile wardrobe staple!

And this Barbie knows how to accessorize: with matching bold red sunglasses, a classic Coach bucket bag, and color-block tasseled sandals.

  • Lupita Nyong'o's Stylist Tells You How to Look Awesome

    by Danica Lo

    Getty ImagesGetty ImagesIt's no secret that Academy Award winning actress Lupita Nyong'o is one of our favorite style stars here at Glamour HQ--she always looks so amazing, both on and off the red carpet.

    Nyong'o may have a great eye, but she has a little help in the wardrobe department. Her stylist Macaela Erlanger recently dished to ABC News about dressing the emerging star.

    "It's been a whirlwind, that's for sure," Erlanger said. "I think the moment that really changed the game was her in the red Ralph Lauren gown. That, to me, really solidified her as an icon, as a star."

    As for how everyone can channel Nyong'o's awesomeness and glamour in real life? Erlanger has three main tips: photograph yourself from all angles in a new outfit to see how it looks, don't be afraid to experiment with color, and go for that element of surprise.


    "Take pictures of yourself in front, side, and back to see how things read," she said. And, "I

    Well, we already know that Olivia Wilde has been killing it on the red carpet with her maternity style. So it's no surprise that her daytime winter-to-spring outfits are just as stellar. Case in point: when she stepped out for her birthday lunch with fiancé Jason Sudeikis in New York City yesterday.

    Those of us on the East Coast are experiencing a bit of spring teaser this week (not to be a buzzkill, but don't get used to it), so Olivia's chic outfit is the perfect transitional look for this moody weather. To kick up her boyfriend sweater and skinny faded black jeans, the mommy-to-be threw on a playfully striped navy and tan coat and a chic floppy fedora. The two pieces both offer warming layers in temperamental climates and paparazzi-attracting statement details.

  • Patterned Workout Tights so Cool, You're Going to Wear Them to Dinner. Maybe

    by Sophia Chabbot

    The great shopping debate is one of our favorite conversations here at Glamour. Nikki and I have had basically one long conversation for the past nine months about clothes that we're going to buy, stuff that remains in our shopping carts for weeks on end, and, of course, the bags, shoes, and garb that we won't go near with a 10-foot pole. Well, Nikki, I think I've found our next mutual purchase--and it comes in the form of uber-fashionable fitness gear: Nike's artist collaboration tights.

  • Work Outfit Idea for Spring: The New Bright Power Suit--It's Anything but Boring

    Mindy Kaling took South by Southwest by storm yesterday, when she headlined a very humor-infused Q&A. (Did your Twitter blow up with quotes like mine did?) Plus, her power girl pink outfit was a big hit, too.

    The 21st Century Lucille Ball (you know, writer, producer, actress, all around BOSS) took the matched set trend for spring and made it pitch-meeting-friendly with tailored silhouettes. The vibrant pairing makes for an inspired, but still professional alternative to a pantsuit or shift dress. Of course, since this is SXSW and Mindy Kaling is an entertainment exec, she's allowed to add a touch of Mindy Lahiri with bold cobalt pumps and a fringed statement necklace.
