Awards show season may be over, but your favorite stars are still serving up head-turning looks like there's no tomorrow. The 2018 SXSW Conference and Festival is currently underway in Austin, Texas, and, so far, there has been no shortage of big-name celebrities gracing the red carpet. In case you're not familiar, SXSW (which stands for South by Southwest) is a festival that aims to "celebrate the convergence of the interactive, film, and music industries." Over the course of the 9-day event, there are film premieres, music events, comedy shows, Q&As, keynote speakers, and much more—there's a little bit of everything, which is why people love it. While it's only day 3 of the 2018 festival, we've already been wowed by a selection of amazing fashions. From Jamie Chung's striped mini dress to Emily Blunt's sexy cutouts, these are just a few of our favorite looks so far.

That same day, actress Dakota Fanning turned heads at the Informal & Candid Conversation with Female Leaders in Television, thanks to her bright red wrap dress. However, not all the stars went for bold, colorful looks. Celebrity stylist and fashion designer Rachel Zoe kept things polished in a crisp white pantsuit and black dress shirt, while Leslie Mann attended the Blockers premiere in a casual T-shirt and jeans combo, topped with a long black blazer with sparkly lapels. The festival is just getting started, and we can't wait to see all the great style moments that are yet to come.
It's a given that Rachael Ray knows food, but few may be aware of the fact that the chef and TV personality moonlights as a huge rock fan (her husband is John Cusimano, lead singer of The Cringe, and when she's not mastering the art of the 30-minute meal, the couple checks out concerts near their home in Manhattan's Greenwich Village). This weekend at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas—aka the Live Music Capitol of the World—Ray will see her two passions collide at her 10th annual Feedback event, a food and music festival that will feature 32 performers over three days, including Weezer, De La Soul, and Action Bronson, and, of course, Austin-inspired fare (think: nachos and queso on the cob). In the name of delicious eats, Ray rounded up her go-to Austin restaurants. Happy dining, y'all.
