Celebrity-Inspired Day-to-Night Accessories


LEOPARD-PRINT CLUTCH

Jamie Chung is proof that a roomy pouch is spacious enough for daytime essentials, but compact enough for an evening out. Look for one in leopard print—it still makes a fierce statement, but has evolved into a neutral pattern that works with any outfit.

CHUNKY ANKLE-STRAP FLATS

Flats are often looked upon as a.m. attire, but chic ones can bring you from the office to happy hour. Try a pair with an ankle strap—the cuffed detailing has been a favorite among celebrities for multiple seasons now, including Rashida Jones, who went with a chunkier band.

SLEEK BACKPACKS

Backpacks have come a long way since elementary school! The modern-day, upscale versions are incredibly chic, super versatile, and can hold all your essentials. Jessica Alba slung her Reese Hudson backpack over one shoulder during the day and toted it again for a much more formal occasion.

MINI LADYLIKE BAGS

Scaled down to clutch-size, itsy-bitsy bags are considered an alternative to minaudieres. What we're loving: ladylike top-handle boxed bags, like Alexa Chung's, that are equally adorable and sophisticated.

LACE-UP BOOTIES

Unlike other ankle boots, lace-ups offer a touch of something special. They're functional, yet unexpectedly sexy. And they work with any look at all hours of the day. Olivia Palermo went with a yellow metallic one, but any color, from basic black to maroon, will do.

The Biggest Red Carpet Trends

Emmys 2014

RED

Celebrities decided to match the red carpet at this year's Emmy Awards as they stepped out in floor-sweeping, crimson gowns. The pull of these looks is that the small-screen stars didn’t go for simple shades—instead, they opted for red tones that were full of detail. January Jones’ printed Prabal Gurung dress featured black insets and Sarah Hyland went for chic separates with a full-skirt-and-crop-top combo by Christian Siriano while Claire Danes’ elaborate Givenchy neckline and lace insets also fit the bill.

POPS OF COLOR

Bright colors popped up on the red carpet at this year’s Emmy Awards. Michelle Dockery stunned in a voluminous Rosie Assoulin gown while Girls’ stars Lena Dunham and Allison Williams both wowed in Giambattista Valli.

WHITE

White is proving to have serious staying power as Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, and Sofia Vergara all lit up the red carpet in icy-white hues. Wiig opted for a crisp cut Vera Wang gown with a thigh-high slit, Kate Mara worked a draped and pleated number, and Vergara sizzled in a figure-flattering Roberto Cavalli column.

SOFT METALLICS

Super shiny metallics were reimagined for the Emmy Awards and instead of their usually show-stopping sheens, they turned up soft and subtle. Amy Poehler worked a silver Theia gown, Hayden Panettiere shimmered in a plunging Lorena Sarbu column, and Taylor Schilling wowed in champagne-hued halter neck gown.

BOLD BEADING

What’s a red carpet without some ornate beading, right? Julia Roberts stepped out in a long-sleeve flared mini dress by Elie Saab, Gwen Stefani wore a shimmery Versace dress ornate with Swarovski crystals, and Jessica Pare brought the beads in a Lanvin midi dress featuring an embellished bodice.








Beyoncé Is Launching an Athleisure Brand with Topshop


Beyonce and Topshop launch activewear brand

Beyoncé has teamed up with Topshop for a new activewear brand! The company, called Parkwood Topshop Athletic Ltd., will launch its first products next fall.

“I have always loved Topshop for its fashion credentials and forward thinking,” Beyoncé said in a statement. “Working with its development team to create and produce a technical and fashion-led collection is exciting and I’m looking forward to participating in all aspects of this partnership.”

The pieces from Beyoncé and Topshop’s joint venture will span dance, fitness, and sports categories, according to WWD. If you’ve ever caught a performance by the “Flawless” singer, you’ve probably admired her physical prowess and workout ethic so this new endeavor seems like a sensible step for Queen Bey, who is no stranger to clothing design with her House of Deréon ready-to-wear line.

Athleisure has recently become one of the biggest movements in fashion, with an increasing number of brands launching sportswear lines. And one especially hot trend is designer athletic wear collaborations such as Alexander Wang for H&M and Nike x Pedro Lourenço.

 We can’t wait to see Beyoncé’s spin on workout wear! Go Queen.
