Hannah Hooper stands out. As the spunky, sole chick in a band full of dudes, you can't help but be drawn to her ever-changing on-stage style (and her ever-changing, ombre extensions *swoon*). One day, you might catch Grouplove's leading lady rocking around in a skeleton leotard onesie—and the next day, she's slowly swaying with a tambourine in a vintage, floor-length, multi-layered grape chiffon dress, like she did for the band's recent show at the McKittrick Hotel in NYC. (SO Stevie Nicks.) #impressed
But somehow, she manages to pull it all off. Actually, she more than pulls it off. She NAILS IT. Every. Single. Time. *bows down* Seriously, the girl wears leopard-print spandex better than Peggy Bundy. *SCURRT* I went there. IDK how she does it, but we at least had to try to steal some of her style secrets—so we did what any curious fan would do. We asked her to show us what's in her suitcase! (Or, like, the next best thing, which equates to a bunch of personal pics of her favorite on-tour outfits. Because folding/re-folding a packed suitcase = giant pain-in-butt.) Check out nine of Hannah's favorite performance get-ups below!

"If I had to describe my fashion style on tour in one word, it would be hangster (hippy gangster)."
Style yourself like Samantha.
Rejoice: Young Carrie Bradshaw will finally meet young Samantha Jones! The Carrie Diaries doesn't return to our TVs until October 25th, but The CW released a poster for the second season, and we are so excited to see that it features Carrie and Samantha. All our old fashionable friends are back together! Actually, they're meeting for the first time (since The Carrie Diaries is a prequel to Sex and the City), but whatever. We are verrrrry excited to see what Samantha dressed like in the '80s: if this poster is any indication, we're in for some serious style.
Rita Ora for DKNY.
Rita Ora is straight-up having a BLAST in Times Square. Sure, Broadway plays are great and basking in the glow of those giant neon signs can definitely feel exciting, but Ora looks like she is having ALL of the fun in her brand new ads for DKNY Resort 2014 (which we got a glimpse of while the campaign was being shot this summer, right in our back yard). In one of the pics, Ora kicks back on a taxi in a double-denim outfit that is giving us serious ab-envy. We’ve seen several celebs attempt to rock the Texas Tuxedo, but seeing it on Rita (with a killer pair of cut-out pumps and coordinating leather jacket) might actually convince us to try it now. (Might.) Because if that’s the secret to looking cool, calm and collected on the big city’s busy streets, then sign us UP!

What’s black and white and cute all over? The whole heap of starlets that came out for the end of Paris Fashion Week, that’s what. Lena Dunham, the sisters Fanning (Elle and Dakota), Dianna Agron and Hailee Steinfeld all popped up at some swanky shows in the City of Lights and—shocker—they each looked sleek beyond their years.
Dunham made her Fashion Week debut today (sitting in the front row of Miu Miu, NBD), and oh, what a debut it was! The Girls star looked chic in a plain black shift dress and a red leather coat, with chunky gold accessories and a black Prada clutch. She was joined in the front row of the row by Glee’s Dianna Agron, who wore a navy chiffon wrap dress and a black coat with a sparkly embellished collar. Also, that clutch. Agron was kind enough to tweet a sneak peek of Miu Miu’s new prints to her loyal followers, which apparently includes a ton of “meow meows.”
Rita Ora shows off her grill.

And (see above) we do not mean "for her patio at an end-of-summer sale!" Although, I wouldn't really be mad if that was the news and Rita Ora wanted to invite me over for a cook-out. Just sayin'. Patio grills are exciting, too. (I’ll bring the buns.) But, as per the photo, Ora got a grill for her TEETH and debuted it on Instagram today while #bored and #inameeting (so say the photo's captions). Personally, we prefer to doodle in those situations so that it at least looks like you’re taking notes, but then again, we also don’t have a new grill (or an old one, for that matter) to show off to our 1.5 million followers. So, carry on, Rita!
Hailee Steinfeld for 'ASOS' magazine.

Hailee Steinfeld stays steady killing it with her style, so seeing her on the cover of ASOS magazine was a total DUH moment. “Fashion is something I’ve always been interested in,” she told the mag. “I used to watch the Oscars but paid no attention to the awards ... It wasn’t until I started attending red carpet events and was flown out to Paris for my first show, and saw how much is put into it all, that I had this new appreciation for everything. Now it’s become a huge part of my life.” OMG, SAMESIES! I didn't get into fashion until I was flown out to Paris for MY first show either! JK I have never been "flown" anywhere, unless you count my parents paying for half my flight home for Christmas.
At 16, the former face of Miu Miu makes high fashion look easy. She’s forever rocking the biggest names in the biz and has a keen eye for quirky details. Needless to say, if I can’t pay my rent next month, it’s because I purchased EVERYTHING she’s modeling. On the November cover of the U.K. retailer’s monthly mag, Hailee appears to have stumbled up on a super-sweet rope swing while frolicking in the woods, as you do in your Chelsea ankle boots. Wearing head-to-toe ASOS goods, I suddenly find myself in desperate need of an over-sized color block coat and leopard print pants: two things I would have never paired together on my own, but suddenly makes all the sense in the world.
Dang, y'all. If we didn't know any better, we'd swear Rita Ora was a full-time model (rather than, y'know, a most-of-the-time singer who only moonlights as a model). She looks the part, she WERQUES the clothes, and she just happens to be BFFs with one of the most-wanted
eyebrows walkers in the runway game. All things considered, peep this spread she did for S Moda magazine and try to pick your jaw up off the floor because ZOMG! She is giving some seriously fierce face in every single shot and *bows down* WE'RE NOT WORTHY! *more bowing* WE'RE NOT WORTHY! (OK, we're getting up now...)
For her stunning cover, the Brit singer served delicate burgundy lace in a turtleneck dress by Todd Lynn that, TBH, makes me very, very nervous—so many possibilities for snagging! Rita let her roots hang out with a swept-back bed-head 'do, smoky eyes and otherwise minimal makeup. We're also kind of envious of her inch-long crimson-colored nails, but since they'd probably prevent us from doing our jobs (#computers), we'll just take that bundle of gold midi-rings instead. No, but seriously—they're from ASOS, and we need to order them right now so BRB. (You can get a similar stack here.)
Child star, shmild star. At 23, Emma Watson is a grown
Muggle woman—and The Edit’s got the pictures to prove it. Polished, poised and far, FAR from Hermione, the actress and eco-activist was recently tapped by Green Carpet Challenge creator, Livia Firth, to star in an editorial spread that supports ethical fashion AND looks super pretty. BTW, if you’re scratching your head about the phrase “ethical fashion,” it’s not as cray as it may seem. And it’s not all tie-dye and Tevas and giant threads of harsh hemp made into a basket-weave bodice. (Although, if something like that exists, I would very much like to see it.)
Our girl Karlie Kloss is an enigma of time and space. It seemed like whenever we so much as glanced at a runway, she was on it. Does the woman ever sleep? We're not sure. But we clearly have a lot to learn. Here are 11 times Karlie made Fashion Week look easy. *cries into coffee* *eats another Karlie's Kookie*

High-waisted panties are not easy to pull off. They are especially daunting when paired with a cropped sweater and jean jacket – Not that you would ever guess that, based on how hard Shailene Woodley is rocking that exact combo in this month’s Flaunt. At 21, Woodley’s not yet a girl, not yet a woman. (#PraiseBritney) She’s still young enough to play the heroine in Divergent, a futuristic film based on a YA trilogy, BUT she’s old enough to be able to move past pregnant teenager roles. She’s also old enough to look very much like a woman, not a girl, in Flaunt’s beachy, breezy, 5-shot editorial spread. (Point of interest: This was obviously photographed before she lobbed all her hair off.)
