ELLE & ELLE girl
- We’re not one to name drop but when it comes to personal style, there’s a strong level of sartorial influence when you’re famously named Kate.
From Moss’s galoshes and Bosworth’s cuffed shorts, to Olsen’s massive sunglasses and the dress heard ’round the world by Middleton—everything you have or want to have in your closet first appeared on these savvy women. Take a glimpse at these notorious ensembles to see which lust-worthy look you’ll wear next!

- After patiently waiting six months from spring’s fashion week debut, we’re finally able to purchase our favorite looks from the runway! And here at ELLEgirl, there is a sense of child-like excitement when deciding which designer favorites to adopt first. Since we’re not all factory-built like the goddesses who storm the runway, we found a trend that transcends all body types and can be found on dresses, shirts, skirts, and even shoes: cutouts. The trend was hot on the runways but also on fashionistas like Leighton Meester and Nicole Richie. Whether it’s a small incision to create eyelets or major surgery to reveal both shoulders or an entire back, one thing’s for sure: designers love to dissect.

Who: Ali Larter
What: Good Housekeeping Shine On Awards
Wear: Dolce & Gabbana dress
Ali Larter wore a Dolce and Gabbana polka-dot dress to the annual Shine On Awards honoring remarkable women last night in New York City. The pleated chiffon and playful polka dots were trendy and cheeky, while the deep V-neck and waist-cinching style showed off her curves beautifully. Larter accessorized her dress with black patent-leather pumps and sleek strands to keep the overall look polished and chic.
Proenza Schouler spring 2011, Imaxtree
Nothing’s set in stone with these rocks, whose fickle composition sent mixed messages of the best kind down the spring 2011 runways. Cabochons—polished gemstones with a rounded top—were shaken up into various combinations, adding some welcome quirk to the usual bejeweled elegance of fashion week. Proenza Schouler’s jolie-laide necklaces were reminiscent of an Alexander Calder mobile, combining various unexpected shapes and colors into a single, harmonious look. Oscar de la Renta’s chains were a little more old school, with gems in the same color families of translucent pinks and greens. These, alongside some options that are just as precious but a bit less costly, are in stores now. Check it out after the jump!
The evidence just keeps piling up that music and fashion assemble just as deliciously as peanut butter and jelly. Drenched perpetually in black, you may be hard pressed to find much pigment in this Swedish style icon’s wardrobe, but Lykke Li’s monochromatic and distinct style is attracting the spotlight. Just like her music, understated but inescapably catchy, her ensembles are always unique and never overdone. The Nordic songstress’ vocal chords may produce an ethereal sound, but the girl’s style is dark an edgy. Without employing color or Lady Gaga styled extravagance, the Lykke Li style is one that speaks for itself. Check out our favorite looks after the jump!
Marc Jacobs spring 2011, Imaxtree.
Liza Minelli, Bianca Jagger and Jerry Hall have all conquered the wide-leg trouser and sleek jumpsuit back in the day. Now, for spring 2011, designers like Diane von Furstenberg (a former disco queen herself), Marc Jacobs, and Gucci are bringing back the lost era of outlandish partying and style with retro tributes such as flowing maxi dresses, big shoes and even bigger hair. If you’re putting together a scene worthy outfit, here’s what to consider:
Longevity: When dressing with the ’70s in mind, it can be difficult to look like you came from Studio 54 and not a laughable B-movie. Some versions of the trend, like the highest of high-rise pants, are firm period pieces, so don’t count on them to be in fashion even a season from now. For example, look out for boot-cut in fall 2011. But others, like vibrant stripes, are always reinterpreted season to season.
Wearability: These looks range from the challenging (wide belts) to the simple (bold prints). So no matter what you’re comfortable wearing, there’s always a way to inject a little funk into your daily wardrobe.
Personality: The ’70s was all about glam. Can any of us forget those images of women in plunging necklines and towering platforms shaking it on the dance floor? If you need to tone it down for your own style and day-to-day life, try flashes of glitz like gold lamé accents, floppy hats or chunky, piled-on bangles. Though we see nothing wrong with running errands in a full-on look from Cleopatra Jones. Save vs. Splurge?: Save. Era dressing is better served in small portions. To get in on the trend, look for wild accessories at high street prices. But in the decadence of the ’70s speaks to you, buy clothing that can transition beyond the hype with a little styling.

Who: Emma Roberts
What: The Tonight Show with Jay Leno
Wear: Dolce & Gabbana frock, Brian Atwood “Maniac” platform pumps
The increasingly in-demand Emma Roberts got a little dotty on The Tonight Show yesterday while promoting her latest project, Scream 4. Donning a Dolce & Gabbana spaghetti strap spotted sheath dress and freshly-coiffed blonde locks, the rising star looked as wholesome as American pie, but kept it edgy with marigold sky-high heels by Brian Atwood. Armed with a mega-watt smile, the new horror thespian let her golden girl personality shine through. Clearly talent runs in the family.
Clémence Poésy worked fashion magic at the grand opening of “Harry Potter: The Exhibition” earlier this week. Wearing a chunky black tweed cardigan over a sleek, gray drop-waist leather dress, she blended polished with relaxed as only a true style maven knows how. A proclaimed Chanel fan, Poésy is rarely seen without a trusty 2.55 bag by her side. Read on to see how you can nab her Parisian chic look.

Tuesday night House of Harlow jewelry designer and mother Nicole Richie joined the dynamic duo Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen in debuting their Textile Elizabeth and James line at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA. Nicole supported the twins wearing a pair of Textile Elizabeth and James “billy” flare jeans and a cozy Winter Kate shrug. She looked vintage-chic accessorizing with Loren bangles and Kathy Rose for Roseark carved necklace. We love this look because the delicate lace is toughened up and dressed down with jeans—not to mention the edge from that exotic animal print vintage clutch. Try these pieces for a vintage-inspired look that’s just as effortless:
