Wear Now: Coco Before Chanel Stripes

She made the Little Black Dress and clusters of pearls wardrobe classics, but Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel also knew the value of a perfect T-shirt. Looking oh-so-French in the film Coco Before Chanel, Audrey Tautou, who plays the fashion icon before her career launched, wears a simple navy and white striped boatneck t-shirt. Take a cue from Coco and put this classic style on heavy rotation this summer. Wear it with a red sailor skirt for a chic, French look-Coco would approve! The film doesn't hit theaters till September 25th, but you can watch the trailer here. Prepare to be inspired.

Kate Moss and Emma Watson Kick Off a Michael Jackson Tribute

If you need any evidence of the King of Pop's immediate impact on fashion, just take a look downwards. Yesterday, style-setting Kate Moss debuted a pair of Repetto's patent tribute loafers while Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince star Emma Watson wore some very "Smooth Criminal" spectator shoes. The best part of the footwear homage? These flats are so comfortable you'll be able to bust it to "Billie Jean" at the drop of a fedora. Just don't attempt the sequined slouch socks-there are some looks only MJ could pull off.

It's Dolce and Gabbana-Hello!

Bruno - Dolce & Gabanna - Sacha Baron Cohen
Fotonoticias/WireImage;Jeffrey Ufberg/WireImage

While promoting his new movie Bruno over the past few weeks, we've seen Sacha Baron Cohen in many outrageous looks, from a flamboyant bull costume in Madrid (far left) to a naughty beefeater get-up in London, but when the funnyman stepped out in New York City yesterday (near left), he looked quite debonair in a handsome blue suit and fedora. He might have seemed like himself, but as it turns out, he was still keeping in character. Though Baron Cohen wore the Dolce and Gabbana suit for an his appearance as himself on The Late Show with David Letterman, he brought a little Bruno along with him-the Austrian fashion reporter loves the Italian label! Prepare yourself for the shocking comedy by watching this spoiler and practicing your Austrian accent-you'll be repeating Bruno's one-liners over and over after the film's wide-release in theaters this weekend.

Emma Watson's Red Carpet Transformation

When an 11-year-old Emma Watson attended the 2001 premiere of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, her outfit-which included a feather boa and lavender boots-seemed to have come straight from a playroom dress-up box. Eight years, one Burberry campaign and countless Chanel dresses later, Watson hit yesterday's world premiere of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in a jaw-dropping vintage dress by British design legend Ossie Clark. And the actress, who memorialized castmate Rob Knox with a simple white ribbon bracelet, wasn't playing make believe when it came to her accessories-there wasn't a feather boa in sight.

How To Pose Like A Dior Supermodel

Looking fabulous and fierce is a part of the job for supermodels like Sasha Pivovarova(far left)

, but it's not as easy as it looks. At the Christian Dior Fall 2009 Couture show, she made a red padded-hip coat and swingy sheer skirt-John Galliano's modern nod to Dior's famous New Look-look effortless and ladylike. Turns out she had a bit of advice before she took the pose: a sneak peak at Mr. Dior's words of wisdom from backstage reminded her that "Maximum Poses" and "Strong Shapes" are the key to looking elegant and chic. So next time it's your turn in front of the camera, do it like a Dior model with your hands on your hips and cocked shoulders, and let your confidence do the work.

Demi Moore's Superhero Style

Demi Moore - Wonder Woman - Cuffs
Ramey Photo/Everett Collection

Demi Moore

looked stunning in an Andrew Gn strapless dress at Sean "Diddy" Combs's White Party this weekend, but it was her bold jewels that really caught our eye. With her jet-black hair and athletic physique, the star bears a striking resemblance to the comic book vixen Wonder Woman when she throws on a pair of matching cuffs. Mrs. Kutcher's bracelets may not have the same protective powers that made the Amazonian superhero so invincible, but if today's readers' pick for Look of the Day is any indication, they certainly help keep her safe on top of the best-dressed lists.

Michelle Obama's Globetrotting Top

Michelle Obama in Suno - What's Right Now

When our First Lady of style wore a pretty print top a couple of weeks ago, try as we might, we just couldn't place the playful heart-bedecked pattern. As it happens, the blouse is an utterly unique design from Suno by Max Osterweis. The line incorporates the designer's years-old collection of vintage African textiles into bold tunics and minidresses that benefit the Kenyan villages in which they are made. According to Osterweis, the fabric for Michelle Obama's top jet-setted from "a little island in Kenya" back to N.Y.C. ("where it sat in my closet for years") until returning to the East African workshop for fabrication only to cross the globe again and land in Mrs. O's favorite Chicago boutique, Ikram. Of the thrill of seeing international fashion icon Michelle Obama in his much-traveled design, Osterweis says: "It suddenly made this little endeavor feel very, very real."

Madonna kicked off the extension of her world tour over the weekend looking more sticky than sweet in a new addition to her costume lineup: a custom look by Givenchy Haute Couture. She took the stage at London's O2 Arena-the same venue where Michael Jackson's comeback tour was scheduled to kick off. Unable to attend Jackson's memorial service due to her tour schedule, Madonna had a Jackson look-alike dance to a medley of his hits as a tribute.

Salvage Your Ripped Jeans With Denim Therapy

Fergie - Denim Therapy - distressed denim

While distressed denim is all the rage right now, there can reach a point of no return when it comes to rips and holes in your favorite jeans. Enter Denim Therapy, a repair service that promises to salvage even the holiest of jeans, and at a cost that is significantly less than investing in a new pair. The service specializes in tears, ripped pockets and belt loops, worn out hems and broken zippers. Their MatchPerfect thread selection process ensures a non-patchy result. As a test, we sent in a pair of our jeans that had ripped past the point of cool. They returned to us looking brand-new but maintained that delicious broken-in feeling we were afraid to lose.
