Chalk it up to her Balenciaga duties and the Snow White and the Huntsman press, but Kristen Stewart has been in high fashion mode all summer long- modeling in designer campaigns, working everything from harnesses to sheer gowns on the red carpet, and fronting no fewer than FOUR glossy covers this season. The actress looks great glammed up (clearly) but all it takes is one glance at her low key outfit yesterday at Comic Con to see that K. Stew is clearly back in her casual-cool element...and she's loving it.

It was hard to get a good look at Tavi Gevinson and Iris Apfel through the hoard of admirers that swarmed them after their talk at The Met.

"Personal style is curiosity about yourself," was the motto at Sunday's "Good Taste/Bad Taste: The Evolution of Contemporary Chic" discussion at the Costume Institute at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Fashion icon Iris Apfel was the first to use the quote, but once it had been said it was like the other participants, Rookie Mag's Tavi Gevinson and The New Yorker's Judith Thurman, couldn't help but keep coming back to it. It was fascinating to watch these two women- the 16 year old website editor and the 90 year old style star- going back and forth about what it means to be stylish, what it means to put together an outfit, and what the roll of clothing can and should play in a woman's life. While Tavi likens good fashion to good performance art, Iris insists that clothing should fit well, be practical, and not create too many barriers between a person and the world. Apfel was insistent that "clothing shouldn't be the most important part of your life," and both women admitted that when they're at home working, they change into more comfy garb. "The second I get home from school at 3 PM I put on Pajamas," Tavi said, and laughed, maybe a little bashful. Apfel agreed, saying that she can only work when she's in blue jeans.

Okay, so according to the calendar, summer doesn't officially start until June 20th this year. But we're not playing by those rules, because our minds are already in vacation zone...and so are our closets. We're not the only ones trading wintry wares for breezy light-colored pieces, because three of our favorite leading ladies recently stepped out at the Young Hollwood Awards in their own variations of seasonal staples. Hailee Steinfeld led the pack in a Prabal Gurung silver pantsuit with a floral applique embellished front. It's a bold choice for the teenager (she's only 15!), but let's be honest here: the Romeo and Juliet actress has already proven her high-fashion cred in last year's Miu Miu's ad campaign, so if ANYONE can pull off the statement look, it's Hailee. Prabal's sleeveless top and bootleg pants might be hot off the Fall 2012 runway, but on the fresh-faced starlet, the entire outfit just screams summer.

Tavi Gevinson, Iris Apfel

Good style doesn't have an age requirement- or an age limit, for that matter- and here's proof: two of the coolest minds in the biz, Rookie Mag's Tavi Gevinson and fashion icon Iris Apfel, will hold a discussion this weekend at New York's Metropolitan Museum titled “Good
Taste/Bad Taste: The Evolution of Contemporary Chic."
Could there BE a more perfect topic for these two to hash out? We definitely don't think so. Even though she's only 15, Tavi's been in the fashion industry for what seems like forever, ever since starting her blog The Style Rookie at age 11. And although she's focusing more of her attention on her new online magazine (and high school, NBD), the Illinois teenager has still been busy making her voice heard online and in person, whether it's appearing in fashion films, starring in Uniqlo ads, or popping up at Fashion Week. Despite her 70-plus year age difference with Iris, this odd couple has more in common than you'd think.

Kristin Kreuk, Rachel Bilson, and Nina Dobrev at The CW's Uprfront event.

The real purpose of The CW's Upfront Presentation, held today in Los Angeles, is to give industry insiders the scoop on what's coming to their televisions next fall. But for small screen stars like Kristin Kreuk, Rachel Bilson, and Nina Dobrev, the event was their chance to shine-literally- in gorgeous champagne dresses. Former Smallville actress Kreuk, who returns to the channel next season in the new adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, shimmered in a sequined tee and a floral print skirt. Despite the glittery top, she managed to keep the rest of the outfit's low-key girly vibe with nude peep-toe pumps, a statement gold bangle, and classic wavy hair. The whole look is very "J.Crew catalogue goes Hollywood," and we totally love it.

Colton Haynes Holland Roden

First off, OMG TEEN WOLF IS BACK FOR A SECOND SEASON. *pants* We are more than thrilled to see Colton Haynes and Holland Roden's adorable little faces back on the small screen, and even MORE excited to see them out and about, flashing their fashion-y selves all around town. Last night at Nylon Magazine's Young Hollywood Party, the Teen Wolf twosome sported killer colorblock ensembles that we need to discuss. Colton wore an azure blue blazer, matching blue shirt, and black trousers—and not only did Colton colorblock his outfit, but his shoes too! These lace-up oxfords have a swipe of gray at the toe, and we love that.

Fact: you don’t dress for the Met Gala to blend in. This year alone we spotted head-to-toe sequins, Barbie doll frocks, and even textured crocodile (ahem, Rihanna)...so needless to say, anyone who’s lucky enough to score an invite tries her absolute hardest to stand out from the rest of the fashion pack. But just like any big event, there were some major trends of the night- check out the three biggest below.

DRAMATIC LIPSTICK

Camilla Belle reached glamazon status in her slinky beaded Ralph Lauren gown, but the real secret weapon to the actress’s ‘20s-inspired look? Her ultra-bold, wine-hued lipstick, which perfectly complemented her almond eyes and trademark full brows. She's not the only one who channeled Old Hollywood by pairing dark lips with shimmery metallic dresses; it's well-tread beauty territory, and we couldn't be happier. Lana Del Rey played up her music industry darling rep with her Altuzarra dress (and cape!), which strikingly offset her burgundy lipstick and swoop of black liner. But here's proof you don't have to retire your ruby red shade just yet: Jessica Alba looked to the brighter side with a cherry-tinted lipstick in her Michael Kors gown- just as dramatic, still just as gorgeous as the rest.

In the world of fashion education, Parsons The New School for Design is the Harvard of burgeoning fashion designers. With competitive entry and a rigorous curriculum, it is held in high esteem for producing world renowned fashion designers like Donna Karan and Marc Jacobs. Every year, the Parsons graduating class puts on a runway show to showcase the next generation of design talent, and three lucky students are crowned Designers of the Year in the respective fields of Womenswear, Menswear, and Children's Wear. I was completely BLOWN AWAY by the work of these talented students. There was children's wear made of the most insanely—yet beautifully—structured knits. Layered menswear with way oversized messenger bags drew gasps while look after look of mega tailored noir womenswear kept everyone bobbing their heads like at an intense tennis match. All in all, it was something truly special to behold and begs the question: Which one of these up-and-comers will be the next Alexander Wang or Prabal Gurung?

The title of 2012 Womenswear Designer of the Year was awarded to Jin Kay from Seoul, South Korea. Kay's cohesive collection of all-black structured looks were both dramatic and wispily feminine. The entire collection was wearable, covetable, and just what you might imagine a downtown gal wearing to her boyfriend's gallery opening. Every look accentuated the body in a chic yet subtle way, and though you can't tell from these photos alone, the craftsmanship was bonkers. These looks need to be on racks, red carpets, and upon my person immediately. I have a good feeling we'll be hearing more about Mr. Jin Kay in the future.

Lana Del Rey Azealia Banks

The secret's out! Lana Del Rey and Azealia Banks have revealed their dates to the highly-anticipated Met Gala (which is exactly one week away!), and *GASP* they're two of our FAVE designers. Earlier this year, J.Crew's creative director Jenna Lyons spilled the beans that she'd be hitting the red carpet with Lana Del Rey and Joseph Altuzarra, but Fashionista confirmed that it's actually JUST Lana and Joseph that are going together. Ooh la la! Azealia Banks revealed her date via Twitter (of course!) and said, "I can't wait for the MET ball! I'm going as Alexander Wang's date. He custom made my outfit and shoes ! !!!! It's soooo hot !" Wait, is this THE pair of shoes and dress she tweeted about awhile back? We hope so!

Every year, the White House Correspondents Dinner brings the worlds of politics and Hollywood together under one fashionable Washington D.C. roof to dine with (and enjoy a speech delivered by) the President of the United States of America. Witty barbs are tossed around the room from the evening's designated host—who was Jimmy Kimmel this year—and everyone dresses up in their fanciest finery, aka black ties and gowns galore, usually of the more subdued variety. (Neon minidresses and/or jumpsuits made of wig hair should be saved for after-parties only.) This year, a bevy of beauties classed-up the evening in various shades of grey. Dakota Fanning and Zooey Deschanel both chose classic lady-gowns adorned in flowers, and Ginnifer Goodwin went for eco-friendly ruffles in the lightest, creamiest of grey.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
