The easiest way to take classic style to the next level? Add an unexpected twist. From graphic stripes to of-the-moment silhouettes, these celebs proved that tailored separates are statement-makers.

Best Dressed

1. Sienna Miller sported bold stripes in an Altuzarra runway combo while promoting American Sniper in New York, completing the look with a vampy lip and her signature tousled locks.

2. Jennifer Lopez balanced femininity and sex appeal for her appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The star wore blush-hued separates, adding a touch of glam with metallic wide-leg trousers from Solace London.

3. Jennifer Aniston wowed in a rich Gucci tuxedo accessorized with layered gold necklaces – a welcome change from her normal rotation of no-fail LBDs.

This campaign is a stunning end to Oscar’s career, but I’m excited to see how his successor Peter Copping interprets the designer’s legacy moving forward.

If you thought Converse couldn’t get any more iconic, think again. The all-American sneaker brand teamed up with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts on a limited-edition collection, launching next month.

The Chuck Taylor All Stars (both high- and low-top) will boast various pop art designs from Andy Warhol’s most well-known creations. Think Lots of Campbell’s soup cans and bold splashes of color. But believe it or not, this isn’t the artist’s first brush with the footwear biz. Back in the 1950s, he created trademark whimsical designs as the illustrator for shoe labels like I. Miller.

I can’t wait to get my hands (er, feet) on these soon-to-be street-style stars. Fingers crossed my favorite Marilyn Monroe print makes it onto the canvas kicks.

Katy Perry’s Super Bowl halftime show is a big deal on its own. But it gets even better: the singer just confirmed her designer BFF Jeremy Scott is creating her costumes. (Yes, multiple looks.)

Even though the performance is just over 12 minutes long, Katy revealed to E! Online that she’ll change outfits at least once. “On my real tour, the Prismatic World Tour, I have nine, ten different costumes. So I would feel very bored if I didn’t change my look at least once on the show,” she said.

And who better to dress her than Jeremy? Katy has been a front-row fixture at his runway shows, rocked his looks onstage, and even wore a Jeremy Scott for adidas tracksuit in the Pepsi Super Bowl teaser commercial. Needless to say, she’s a fan.

Whether she’s killing it in a glitter getup or Jeremy’s latest Barbie-inspired look, one thing’s for certain: I’ll be glued to the TV screen for every glorious minute.

Kate and William’s impeccably put-together outfits. Little George’s beyond-adorable fashion choices. How could we be anything but obsessed? In honor of this soon-to-grow royal family, we’ve recreated each regal look with just one item.

Get the Royal Family's Style

For Prince William’s Look
You’ll rarely see Wills without a perfectly pressed button-front shirt. To dress one down, roll the sleeves up past your forearms and pair it with chinos or jeans. For a more formal look, opt for a navy suit-and-tie combo.

For Kate Middleton’s Look
The Duchess is known for her polished and practical fashion sense. And the one staple that ties it all together? Nude patent pumps. Grab a pair that complements your skin tone, then wear them with everything from dresses to jeans.

For Prince George’s Look
Although everything he wears is automatically aww-worthy, shortalls are Kate’s go-to for this little prince. Reach for a classic pinstriped or navy pair, then let those pinchable cheeks do the rest.

Now call the photographer. These outfits are royal-portrait material. Our Make It Your Own: The Duchess’ Style, Leading Man: Get Prince William’s Regal Look, and Royally Cute Style: Get Prince George’s Look Boutiques opened Friday, January 9, at 11AM ET.
