Runway Look of the Day: Calvin Klein

The clothes at Calvin Klein were so effortless-it was different than what we usually see from Francisco Costa. Every piece looked as if it was the easiest thing in the world to wear, but my favorite look was the sheer jacket paired with a racerbank tank and silk chiffon pants. It seemed utterly weightless, but still with such delicate detail and beautiful texture.

Oprah Gets a Mad Men Makeover

Oprah - Janie Bryant- Mad Men - Jon Hamm - January Jones - Christina Hendricks - What's Right Now - Style on the Set
George Burns Harpo Inc.; Courtesy of AMC

If anyone has the power to step into a TV series-it's Oprah Winfrey. The talk-show titan is taking a trip back in time-and into Mad Men-on a special '60s-themed episode of her show. She enlisted series costume designer Janie Bryant to design a custom curve-clinging dress a la Joan Holloway (as played by Christina Hendricks, right). The result, a red satin number with a brooch closure, is worthy of a night out on the town with Don and Betty Draper. Let's hope Winfrey invited January Jones and Jon Hamm (left) out for a cocktail after their visit to her retro set-even the Queen of Talk shouldn't let such a wonderful beehive 'do go to waste.

"The Oprah Winfrey Show: Oprah Goes Back in Time-The ?60s" airs on September 21st. Check your local listings for times.

My favorite look yesterday was Proenza Schouler's optic-print minidress.

I loved this show in general because it looked so new and unlike anyone else. They used color in an edgy, modern way that was still completely wearable.

For his new collection, Ralph Lauren was inspired by "the resilient spirit of America"-a message that was exemplified by the front row of his runway show where Janet Jackson sat alongside the designer's family. We asked Jackson which look she loved most from the presentation and it's no surprise she choose the silver laméoveralls-perfectly in tune with her show-stopping style.

The stars certainly know the power of a little sparkle (hello Diane Kruger!) and designers are feeling it too.

Sequins are having a major moment on the spring runways, including at 3.1 Phillip Lim where the most exquisite range of sparkly blazers, shorts, dresses and tanks paraded down the red-hot runway. But this look is not just for parties! Try a sequined jacket with skinny jeans for a versatile look that works everywhere-day, night, office or outing.

Audrey Tautou on Playing Coco Chanel

Think the French are unflappable? Not so. At last night's premiere of Coco Before Chanel in New York City, Audrey Tautoudished on her upcoming role as the late fashion legend. "It was really intimidating," she says. "I was trying to make her personality more complex than the cliche image most people have of her." Of course, other parts of her new gig-like dressing in Chanel Haute Couture and posing in the new, jaw-droppingly elegant Chanel No. 5 ads (top right)-were less of a stretch. Rachel Bilson, who was also at the event, shared in the Chanel love-fest: "My first purchase was their smallest bag, because it was the only one I could afford," she says. "I bought it for myself, so it wasreally special."

The Material Girl was not only in the front row at the Marc Jacobs show, she was clearly at the front of the designer's thoughts when it came to planning hair and makeup for his two New York Fashion Week outings. The kabuki-style face powder in his first presentation recalled Madge in her "Nothing Really Matters" kimono phase, while the girls on the Marc by Marc Jacobs catwalk sported Like a Virgin-esque bow-studded headwraps. Thankfully, the style icon hearts Marc right back-she even requested her own invite to Monday's show.

Stella McCartney Gets Some A-list Love at the Toronto Film Festival

It was a big day in our photo lounge when both Jennifer Garner and Naomi Watts stopped by to pose for their Toronto Film Festival portraits. While they differed in their taste in candy-Jen went straight for our stash of Jelly Bellys, Naomi preferred the Sour Patch Kids- the leading ladies did show off a common love for British designer Stella McCartney. But this was no Pink/Shakira VMA double take: Jen looked sexy in a black belted Stella McCartney dress, while Naomi went fashion forward in a jumpsuit and peep toe booties by the same designer. "Isn't Stella a genius?" gushed Jen. "I'm in complete awe of her!"

It's not everyday that a television series gives fashion a starring role and when a new designer is featured on Gossip Girl, you'd better listen up. Resident rocker Jenny Humphrey (Taylor Momsen) looked quite rebellious on the season premiere last night wearing a snakeskin print maxidress by the next label-to-know, Thayer by Marsha Welcher. While the rest of the girls wore pastel frocks and ladylike hats at the buttoned-up polo match, Little J took the edgy road. Momsen's Thayer maxi is a Barneys exclusive, but we found a similar style in the same cool-girl snakeskin print on

Usually our first question for leading ladies on the red carpet at TIFF is "Who are you wearing?" But we've seen such great hair on the actresses this year, we find ourselves asking, "Who did your hair?" At the premiere of Whip It, Drew Barrymore showed off her dip-dyed tips. "It was her idea and I was like, 'How am I going to do this?'" says hairstylist Tracey Cunningham, who gave Drew her rock and roll mane. "I used clear foils and a stencil that I made out of paper to get everything to line up. This is the craziest look I've ever given her!" Meanwhile, Mariah Carey showed off soft waves when she stopped by our photo lounge with the rest of the cast of Precious. We love the natural look, which reminded us of her early '90s style.

See more hair from the Toronto Film Festival!

At Herve Leger, Max Azria gave new life to the brand's iconic dresses with a trend we've been seeing on many other spring runways—tons of texture. The collection had all the usual energy, but this time with finger-knit and crochet details that gave the allusion of an exotic skin. Get the look now with a pair of crocodile heels in a neutral color—so versatile, and the rich texture gives life to even the simplest of dresses.

It's only Day 5, but yellow is already having a major moment with little lemon-hued dresses floating down the runway at Cynthia Steffe, Luca Luca, Reem Acra and Elie Tahari, just to name a few. Take a cue from Moore and wear a yellow dress now with closed-toe pumps for a seasonless splash of sunshine.
