Celebrities Sitting Front Row at Paris Fashion Week
Every season without fail, Paris Fashion Week sees a fantastic lineup of the top fashion designers. The city of love is where the houses of Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, Hermès, Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen, and Lanvin, to name only a few, invite front row regulars to watch the latest collections. For spring 2018, Christian Dior Artistic Director Maria Grazia Chiuri continued to make her bold feminist statement on the runway as she kicked off PFW with a shirt that screamed, "Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?" (a reference to a 1971 essay by art historian Linda Nochlin). There, Emily Ratajkowski arrived in a high-slit Brock Collection white dress that's peak EmRata (above), as she posed with Natalia Vodianova and other Dior ladies like Olivia Palermo, Naomi Watts, and Alexa Chung. And earlier, Simon Porte Jacquemus also welcomed Ratajkowski for his spring show, where she wore an LBD that fit her perfectly. The cherry on top of Paris Fashion Week? Cindy Crawford at Chanel.

The Bangs All Your Favorite Celebrities Are Wearing Right Now
Choppy, blunt bangs aren’t going away anytime soon— Jessica Biel can attest—but there’s a new style that’s popping up on the head’s of many of your favorite celebrities. Actually, they’re not “new” at all. Curtain bangs, as their being dubbed on social media, were a favorite of the ‘70s, and were made famous by icons like Françoise Hardy and Debbie Harry. Now, they’re showing up on the likes of Alexa Chung, a firm adopter, Kirsten Dunst, J.Lo, and Chloë Grace Moretz. Not only that, they’re a hit on Pinterest, with the beauty term up an astonishing 600 percent in search on the platform. Like the name suggests, they're usually parted down the center of the forehead, mimicking curtains that are pulled open.  Celebrity stylist Gregory Russell, who actually gave Moretz’s her vintage cut, confirms their versatility, stating that they can work on all hair textures at all different lengths. If you’re into the Pinterest-approved fringe, Russell suggests asking for "fringy bangs that break right at your upper cheekbone." To style them, you’ll need a solid blow-dryer in your arsenal. "I recommend blowing out with a small boars hair round brush, flipping the ends by blowing the hair under the brush and away from the face," he explains. Keep scrolling to see a few celebrity-inspired cuts to bring along with you to the salon.

Star-Studded: The Best Parties This Week
Taylor Swift’s squad may be so 2015, but we’re still not done obsessing over groups of super-empowered women. 2017’s catch? They’re all teenagers. That’s what we discovered on Thursday at a dinner in celebration of Coach and Rodarte’s upcoming collaboration. Yes, Chloë Grace Moretz and Selma Blair (above, in sleek leather jackets) were on hand to lend their own star power to the evening, but we couldn’t help but notice how magically Chloe and Halle Bailey, Sabrina Carpenter, Yara Shahidi, and Rowan Blanchard came together. If those girls (all in their teens) don’t define effortless cool, we don’t know who does. In other major meetings of the mind, Alexa Chung basically met a princess this week. To make things clear, she met the princess. Dressed in a gorgeous off-the-shoulder Loewe piece, Chung, who brought her father along as her date (kudos!), shook hands with the one and only Kate Middleton at the National Portrait Gallery’s 2017 Portrait Gala in London. Jealous? Same. RELATED: Chloe and Halle Bailey Talk Fashion, Style, and Their Musical Inspiration Charlize Theron and Naomi Campbell headed way overseas to Hong Kong, where they dressed to the nines for amfAR’s third-annual Hong Kong gala.

All the Stars at Burberry's London Fashion Week Runway Show

This year's Burberry runway show at London Fashion Week was like no other. With plenty of star power and an incredible venue, Burberry debuted its 83-piece collection, featuring womenswear and menswear, at their first-ever "buy now, wear now" show. The collection, inspired by Virginia Woolf's novel Orlando—a copy was placed on every guest's seat—and Nancy Lancaster's interior and garden designs, featured printed shirts, military-inspired jackets, lacey, Victorian-esque tops, and pajama-inspired separates. Celebrities showed up in their chicest outfits—this wasn't just any runway presentation, it was Burberry.  Felicity Jones flitted in wearing a Victorian-inspired lacey white number and Alexa Chung donned a sparkling mod minidress. Plus, Cara Delevingne seriously brought the heat with her low-cut LBD, and Lily James showed some leg in a pajama-inspired dress with a thigh-high slit.  The gorgeous venue, Makers House, featured a beautiful sculpture garden and was centrally located in the heart of SoHo. All of the stars, from Jourdan Dunn, and Frieda Pinto, a Burberry campaign star, to Nicolas Hoult and Olivia Palermo, gathered at the gorgeous venue to watch the runway presentation.
