It’s pretty much a fact that Emma Watson is always flawless. She’s perfected the art of looking on-trend without being overly trendy and has an air of elegance other young starlets could only dream of achieving. Of course, the downside to all this elegance is that we usually only see Watson when she’s working—no tabloid cover scandals for this actor. Thankfully she’s been out and about quite frequently over the last few weeks, promoting her latest film, Noah, and we don’t need to tell you that she’s been killing it on the red carpet.

Her two most recent red carpet looks, from the New York City and London premieres, involved simple, sculptural dresses in solid colours. In New York, Watson wore a black, long-sleeve Oscar de le Renta gown from the Fall 2014 collection. A deep-cut, open back kept it from being too mature a look for the 23-year-old—who was quoted this weekend as saying she can’t wait to age. (Lol, okay.) Today in London, Watson stunned in an all-white Ralph Lauren Collection silk column gown. Both looks are top notch, but what really has us on board with Watson’s style are her stand-out accessories.

Your first time at any international fashion week will teach you a valuable lesson: You need a fur. And not just any Margot Tenenbaum style granny hand-me-down. A fur so intricately patterned, multi-layered and artificially coloured, that it has to be designer. Given its place at the apex of the top Fall 2014 trends, you’d think recessionary times were long gone—it’s virtually everywhere, from a hyper colour mink at Altuzarra to a fluffy red dress at Prada. Wear it with caution or as Dior prescribes, dangle it over your arm like it’s no big d. Let the fur fly, scruples or otherwise.

Grammys 2014: The 7 best dressed on the red carpet


Grammys 2014 Red Carpet

Last night, music’s reigning royal couple, Beyoncé and Jay Z, continued to win at life, opening Grammys 2014 with one hella sexy lovefest courtesy of Bey’s new single, “Drunk in Love.” Aside from their amazing performance and some collaborations from our wildest dreams—hello Pharrell Williams, Daft Punk and Stevie Wonder!—there were some very unusual outfits. From country songstress Kacey Musgraveslight up cowboy boots to Cyndi Lauper’s caped get up, fashion critics were split on most of the outfits from the night.

Taking a cue from Diane Keaton’s stylish tuxedo at the recent Golden Globes, Madonna went androgynous in a Ralph Lauren double-breasted tux, accessorizing with a sparkly glove, gold grills, and her son David who walked the carpet by her side. Katy Perry showed some love for Valentino, rocking a couture white tulle confection with staffs of sheet music splashed across the skirt. Some thought it verged on tacky, but we give her mad props for embodying the night’s theme so fully.

Both Ciara and Alicia Keys showed how to make the most of curves. Ciara showed off her baby bump in a fitted Emilio Pucci dress, keeping her hair and make up perfectly low key, as to not overwhelm the sequined get up. Similarly, Alicia Keys, kept her coiffed hair and make up simple, and let her cobalt blue Armani Privé halter gown take centre stage. The plunging neckline might be too much for some, but Alicia pulls off the bold look effortlessly.

Sochi 2014 Uniforms: The best Olympic getups from around the world

Sochi 2014 Uniforms Team France

Every two years, we humble plebes are reminded what is possible when we opt for the gym over a Scandal marathon. Olympians impress us with the kind of crazy skills we couldn’t rival in our wildest dreams but we usually have them beat on one account: fashion. Olympics past have brought out berets of shame and knockoffs, but so far, it looks like the tide might just be turning. Could a seriously stylish Sochi 2014 be ahead?

After being criticized for outsourcing its wares for the London 2012 Olympics, Ralph Lauren added the tagline “Made in America” to Team USA’s uniforms, which match alpine chicness with prep appeal. Hudson Bay’s point blanket jacket was an obvious inspiration for the pea coat and the white sweatpants are an odd choice for an official look. But on the whole, we give it two thumbs up.

Olympics countdown: Hudson’s Bay releases Team Canada Sochi 2014 uniforms and collection

Remember when Roots was responsible for much of the world’s Olympic clothes? This beret? Well, it seems as if some Canadian greatness is still rubbing off on Team USA, with its just-released Sochi 2014 uniforms. Designed by Ralph Lauren (and fully produced on American soil to put an end to last year’s controversy), the closing ceremony jacket, for one, looks quite the ever-iconic Bay stripe featured similarly on this year’s Team Canada wares. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery…

Kate Middleton wears Smythe and proves that even with heels on she can still play volleyball

Kate Middleton’s love for athletics is no secret (hello, Olympic celebrations and field hockey antics!) so it’s fitting that today’s outing—her first solo engagement since Prince George was born—was to a SportsAid workshop for young athletes, a charity of which Kate is patron to.

Held at an arena in London’s Olympic Park, Kate wore an outfit that was virtually identical to the last time she visited the venue during the 2012 games. Her navy Smythe blazer was the focal point of the casual ensemble, which included a Breton stripe Ralph Lauren shirt, J Brand skinny jeans and Stuart Weitzman wedges. Should you think that high heels would get in the way of the Duchess playing sports, you’d be quite mistaken. While Kate turned down an invitation to try fencing and badminton, telling the press, “I’d like to give it a go but I’ve brought the wrong shoes!” she was more than eager to get onto the volleyball court, wedge heels and all. Is there a better Friday gift than a video of Kate Middleton playing volleyball? We think not.
