1. All Valentino? Yes, please. Kate Mara nailed a playfully mismatched look from the label at its Fall 2015 runway show in Paris.

2. There’s a lot to love about Camilla Belle’s look at the Moët & Chandon celebration for Roger Federer, from the colorful prints on her Preen kimono-inspired wrap dress to her strappy Brian Atwood sandals.

3. Head-to-toe peach has never looked so polished. Jessica Alba paired voluminous silhouettes from Narciso Rodriguez for an appearance at Morgan Stanley’s Executive Women’s Conference to speak about her company, Honest.

Move over, Kimye. The real stars of Paris Fashion Week? Two familiar male models. Actors Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson returned to the runway in full Blue Steel glory, reprising their roles as Derek Zoolander and his nemesis Hansel from the 2001 film Zoolander.

Surprising unsuspecting show-goers at Valentino, Ben sauntered down the catwalk in a brocade suit and black Creeper shoes. Owen followed in an overcoat-topped pajama suit and sneakers. Although fashion insiders are a notoriously tough crowd to shock, the actors were greeted with applause and laughter from the audience. Backstage, they posed with Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour, who even managed to crack a smile.

The reappearance of Zoolander and Hansel serves as a lesson to all of us: There’s more to life than being really, really ridiculously good-looking. Like getting a sequel. Filming for Zoolander 2 is set to begin in Rome later this month.

Ever wanted to twirl center stage, wrapped in tulle? Well, now is the time to dress like a prima ballerina. This standout winter trend is equally charming dressed up (with a pleated skirt and flats) or down (think leggings and a cozy sweater). Better start mastering that pirouette.

Most Coveted

  1. Jill Jill Stuart Pleated Fit and Flare Dress. A fit and flare silhouette with a full skirt? A ballerina trademark.
  2. Stephen Dweck Drop Earrings. Chandelier earrings are the ideal dramatic accessory for opening night.
  3. Chloé “Bronte” Shoulder Bag. A pretty-in-pink petite shoulder bag completes this elegant outfit.
  4. Valentino “Rockstud” Flat. Embellished T-strap flats are not your typical ballet slipper, but these look just as graceful.

With no shortage of pint-sized style stars on the way – from Eva Chen’s Chanel-toting mini-me to Prince George’s sure-to-be-chic younger sibling – we can’t help but obsess over stylish maternity looks.

Best Dressed List

 

  1. Miroslava Duma showed off her baby bump in a bird-adorned Valentino cape – just one of the many luxe looks the Russian editor sported during Paris Fashion Week.
  2. Zoe Saldana, who recently confirmed she’s having twins, turned up to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’s Hollywood Costume opening party in a cotton-candy pink Christian Dior gown and matching clutch. Maybe she’s hinting at the color of the nursery…
  3. Rosamund Pike, who is expecting her second child, looked equal parts sultry and sweet mom-to-be at the world premiere of Gone Girl, thanks to a black, bow-accented Altuzzara gown with a thigh-high slit.

As temperatures dip, coats will quickly become the finishing touch on every outfit. Whether you sport a classic trench or a belted cape, the extra layer adds visual interest, tying together the rest of your look. Along with a cape-sleeved topper, here are bold picks from this week’s Boutiques, including rose-tinted accessories and a graphic black-and-white dress.

2. Hilary Radley Coat. Exaggerated sleeves and a stand-up collar give this classic style a modern twist.
