Michelle Obama's Flower Power

Michelle Obama's Flower Power - What's Right Now
Brian Snyder/Landov

While the White House searches for a new chief florist- head floral designer Nancy Clarke retired in May after more than 30 years of service-Michelle Obama continues to show us her love of all things floral. "Mrs. Obama's taste in flowers shows the same eclecticism that we see in what she wears," says event planner David Stark. "She has the confidence to keep things simple and sophisticated." Want to copy the First Lady's favorite arrangements in your home? "Using just one type of flower and skipping filler like baby's breath is the easiest way to create a beautiful bouquet," advises Stark, who says that fresh blooms from your local grocery store or farmer's market can be just as attractive as more expensive buds from high-end florists. "Or join a flowering plant of the month club and you'll always have something gorgeous in your home."

At last night's Hollywood premiere of 500 Days of Summer, Mad Men star Christina Hendricks and fiance Geoffrey Arend gave us the style scoop on their upcoming nuptials. "I picked out the dress-it's Carolina Herrera," said Hendricks, who didn't want to ruin the surprise by giving any specifics about the design of the gown. (We'd love to see her in this embroidered gown from the designer's Spring 2010 collection.) Arend will also wear something special for the couple's fall wedding, which will take place in New York City. "Brooks Brothers is making me a suit," the groom-to-be said. "I'm going to look like a real British dandy!" Aside from having a hand in the design of his custom clothes, is Arend involved in the planning process? "He likes tasting cake," said Hendricks. "I do the rest."

Jennifer Aniston's latest role is a bail jumper being pursued by her ex-husband in The Bounty Hunter, which is currently being filmed on location in Atlantic City. But while hunky leading man Gerard Butler plays the title role in the action flick, we can't take our eyes off one of Jen's other co-stars, the Ferragamo bag that her character carries as she goes to great lengths to avoid getting caught. The leather tote features a front flap for easy access and both a top handle and a removable shoulder strap, making it the perfect handbag for any woman on the run.

Cat Deeley Is Her Own Personal Stylist

We look forward to So You Think You Can Dance every week as much for Cat Deeley's fashion choices as for Mia Michaels's choreography-the bubbly British host has a body to die for and is known for working the hottest trends on the show. But something's different this season, as Cat's look changes dramatically from show to show, from quietly classic one week to completely over-the-top another. Turns out there is reason why! Deeley tells Entertainment Weekly that she is styling herself this year. "I want people to have an opinion about it-to either love it or hate it," she says. "With the kids dressed like angels and devils or matadors or demons, I would look completely ridiculous if I was standing there in jeans and a vest." Despite the change, one thing still rings true-Cat is still on the hot tamale train when it comes to style.

Since the July issue hit newsstands, InStyle readers have been flipping for the colorful Tom Binns necklaceworn by Michelle Pfeiffer on the cover. Binns calls his spectacular creation (which took two days of hand-stringing to make) "Psycho Candy."

To recreate this look, Weber Cleary suggests pairing multi-color strands of beads with an understated outfit. "If you're going to wear that dramatic of a necklace, it should be with a simple dress," she says.

Watch out Ashton, your girl has a new crush! Last night, Demi Moore wore a glamorous feathered dress by up-and-coming designer Prabal Gurung (inset) to an event for her new fragrance. Upon tweeting a picture of herself (far left), her loyal followers wanted to know who designed it. She responded immediately, saying the dress was by "wonderful young designer to look out for Prabal Gurung!" This is the second time she has worn a dress from the designer-to-watch, the first-she wore a black and white one-shouldered number (near left) to Cartier's 100th anniversary party. Gurung, who's just as thrilled to have the star choose his designs, responded with thanks last night on Twitter saying, "I love you for wearing my precious dress!" Maybe we're reading between the 140-character lines, but it sounds like we'll be seeing a lot more love between these two style stars.

Will Kate Gosselin ditch her buzzed-about hair for a new 'do? If she takes a cue from Reese Witherspoon, Anne Hathaway, Kate Bosworth and other stars who have undergone breakup makeovers (aka "breakovers") after high-profile splits, she just might. "A new color or cut not only makes you feel better, it will also give you a boost of self confidence when you're ready to start looking for a new love," says celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson. Should Kate trade her blond highlights for a darker shade or add length with extensions? Click to see how Gibson and other Hollywood hair gurus would transform the tresses of the newly single reality TV mom.

You Can Still Look Chic While Summer's On Hold

Lauren Conrad - Target - Summer Style - Rain - Shopping News

According to the Climate Prediction Center, El Niño is holding all sunshine captive till further notice. Like us, your summer wardrobe is probably suffering as much as your mood, so try lifting your spirits on rainy summer days by taking style cues from Lauren Conrad. Choose rain gear that won't clash with your clothes by opting for a clear umbrella that won't steal the thunder from your favorite summer sundress. Trade your black wellies for soft grey rain boots that are still neutral enough to wear with everything, but keep the focus where you want it-on your outfit. Above all, remember that even though the clouds may take your summer sun, they can't take away your chic summer style.

Thankfully the term "walking shoes" isn't on this administration's agenda. The First Lady stepped out last week to tend to the White House garden and showed us-once and for all-that there are completely cool and practical sneakers out there. Obama's new $55 Pumas pack the same amount of punch as the ribbon-trimmed Lanvin sneaks she wore a few weeks ago, but at a fraction of the price.

Last Monday, American audiences were officially introduced to British It girl Alexa Chung when MTV premiered her new interactive entertainment show, It's On With Alexa Chung. We were instant fans of her signature style, so we keep going back to MTV's Buzzworthy blog to get the daily head-to-toe rundown on the looks she wears on air. During her first week, Chung picked easy pieces from brands like A.P.C., Kova amp T and Lover, many of which were straight from her own closet. "In New York you have to be more practical," the former model told us when we saw her spinning tunes at a party last month. "The weather is more extreme amp#91;than in Londonamp#93; and there's a lot more walking to be done." What is Chung's favorite Manhattan fashion discovery so far? The edgy Opening Ceremony boutique in Soho.

According to Yahoo! Shopping the hottest trends in swimwear would be better suited for an African safari. The top three swimsuit searches on Yahoo.com are for zebra, leopard and tiger-oh my! Animal prints come and go on the runways but are always a staple at the beach, and because they look chicest in minimal dosages, an itsy-bitsy bikini is the perfect way to satisfy your craving for spots and stripes without overdoing it. We love Vanessa Hudgen's little leopard print bikini (far left) and this flattering zebra two-piece by Michael Kors (near left). So go on, unleash your inner animal this summer-it's the most-searched thing to do!
