Mila Kunis at 'Cosmopolitan' magazine's Fun Fearless Males Of 2011 event in New York on March 7.

We love that we don't have to trudge into work in somber, wool crepe suits like the rest of corporate America, but we have to admit to a little fancy-pants envy at what's going on here with Mila Kunis. Wowowowowowow, I guess this shawl-collared, solo-button, monochromatic affair is an homage to the dapper dudes of the "Fun Fearless Males" event that she attended, but in honor of International Women's Day (which is apparently today, and 100 years strong [suck it, dudes.]), here's a slew of ladies in ridiculously slick suiting (with some hella strong shoulders) from Paris Fashion Week. Get it!

Looks from the Zara Woman SS 2011 collection.
Photo: Zara

Zara Woman just unveiled its Spring/Summer 2011 collection, and it's got us SO excited about warmer days ahead. The collection is full of chic and sophisticated separates, all with Zara's classic well-tailored touch. Three looks stood out to us in particular, though. The first outfit features a black boyfriend cut blazer thrown over a gray shirt and patterned pants. We love the unexpected print on pants, especially worn with more basic tops. The second look features a hot pink shirt tucked into a teal skirt. This colorful combo is not for the shy at heart, but a perfect pairing for the summer months. And last, you can't get much crisper than a simple white shift with black stripes down the sleeves. The dress oozes effortless elegance that's perfect for any occasion—date night, girls-only brunch, lounging around at home, etc.

Crackle nail polishes by China Glaze, OPI, and Mia Secret.

Polish is polish is polish. Unless, of course, it crackles. The hottest new trend to hit the lacquer world are these polishes that create a shatter effect when they dry on your tips. The look is raw and gritty, yet amazingly intricate (i.e. if you tell 'em you sat in a salon for hours to get the look, they'll probably believe you!).

How to wear:
For day, coat your nails in a flat/matte polish, then top with one of these crackle polishes; for night, go with a layer of glitter lacquer topped by a shatter effect polish. Done and done.

If you can only try one, try one of these:
+ China Glaze Crackle Glaze in Crushed Candy ($6.49, SallyBeauty.com)
+ Katy Perry Collection Nail Polish by OPI in Black Shatter ($12.75, Amazon.com)
+ Mia Secret Crackle Nail Polish in Rose ($4.10, Amazon.com)

Hollywood royalty may have dominated the red carpet at the 83rd annual Academy Awards in Los Angeles, but the stars of Jersey Shore were having a super-fashionable weekend of their own. On Saturday, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino attended a party in West Orange, N.J., wearing a white blazer, baggy black pants, and flashy sunglasses with a neon blue border. Meanwhile, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi signed copies of her new book, A Shore Thing, in a V-neck beige tank and fun leopard print hat. But the most stylish of them all had to be Jenni "JWOWW" Farley, who looked glam at her birthday party in Las Vegas in a sparkly gray cutout cocktail dress. But what do you think?

The 2011 Oscars red carpet was just the beginning. Nominees plus dozens of other celebs slipped into their cutest cocktail dresses for the Vanity Fair Oscars Party, one of the most coveted post-Academy Awards tickets in Hollywood.

SHOWSTOPPERS: A memo must have gone out! There was a TON of crimson at the Oscars, and the scene was much the same at the Vanity Fair Oscars Party. Zoe Saldana wore a Prabal Gurung fuchsia and red frock, Selena Gomez slipped into a body-lengthening Dolce & Gabbana gown, Anna Kendrick wore a ruffled scarlet Notte by Marchesa dress, and Anna Paquin rocked a ballet-inspired Monique Lhuillier dress.

THRILL OF THE LACE: Nothing says glamour like a little lace. Mia Wasikowska (in Stella McCartney), Zooey Deschanel (in Valentino), Ginnifer Goodwin (in Erdem), and Jena Malone (in a sleeveless, tummy-"showing" cocktail dress) chose to drive the point home in A LOT of the feminine fabric.

AU NATUREL: You'd think that wearing a dress that matches your skin tone would completely wash you out and make you look like a blob of, well, beige. But it was quite the opposite for Jessica Biel (in a strappy Versace gown), Gwyneth Paltrow (in the same Michael Kors gown she performed in at the Oscars), Taylor Swift (in a Zuhair Murad minidress), and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (in a Valentino Haute Couture dress). These stars glowed!

SINGING THE BLUES: Our new fashion theory is that ANYONE can dazzle in a blue hue. Enter: Rosario Dawson in a high-slit Diane von Furstenberg dress, Lea Michele in a long-sleeve sparkling Roberto Cavalli gown, and Dianna Agron in an ankle-length, flowing frock by J. Mendel.

TAKE THE PLUNGE: One thing's for sure—a lot of double-sided tape was used last night to keep the deep necklines of Claire Danes' cream Calvin Klein dress, Emma Roberts' sparkling Jenny Packham creation, and Gabrielle Union's stunning Diane von Furstenberg purple dress in place.

CHIC FRILLS: You have to be careful with ruffles, as there's a fine line between classy and trashy, but these ladies pull them off. Rashida Jones (in Valentino), Selita Ebanks (in red and beige one-shoulder dress), Amanda Seyfried (in Valentino), and Cameron Diaz (in Carolina Herrera), looked uber-ladylike in their perfectly frilly frocks.

PRINTS CHARMING:We know that trends come in threes (at least). But we were so mesmerized by Emma Stone's short-sleeved Chanel Haute Couture dress and Lourdes Leon's AllSaints Aztec minidress that we couldn't help but mentioning. You like, right?

For every awards show that comes, we try to predict which trends will rule the red carpet. Most of the time, we are completely surprised (pleasantly) by the looks the stars step out in...which was the case at Sunday night's 2011 Academy Awards. From lovely lace to shades of purple, here’s the lowdown on this year’s hottest Oscars red carpet trends.

IN THE NUDE: Mandy Moore, Halle Berry, and Florence Welch looked naturally beautiful in nude-hued gowns. Mandy wore a shoulder-baring Marchesa dress, while Halle also sported a magnificent Marchesa creation, and Florence gave the red carpet a vintage-y vibe in a tired Valentino frock.

RED HAUTE: Jennifer Lawrence (in Calvin Klein), Sandra Bullock (in Vera Wang), and Jennifer Hudson (in Versace) were just a few of the bombshells to wear a serious pop of color.

SHADES OF PURPLE: Purple reigned with Mila Kunis donning a boundary-pushing Elie Saab gown with white drop earrings, Natalie Portman showing her baby bump in a flowing Rodarte dress, and Cate Blanchett wearing a work of art in the form of a Givenchy frock.

GLITTER AND SEQUINS: It's one way to turn heads on the red carpet! Mandy Moore (in Monique Lhuillier), Amy Adams (in L'Wren Scott), and Michelle Williams (in Chanel) weren't hard to miss in their sparkling gowns.

SHEER THINGS: Mila Kunis, Hailee Steinfeld, and Scarlett Johansson looked lovely in lace. Mila's lavender Elie Saab dress was demure yet insanely sexy. Meanwhile, Hailee looked like a modern day princess in Marchesa, and Scarlett's Dolce & Gabbana gown was the talk of the carpet.

The Charlotte Ronson Fall 2011 show in New York on Feb. 12.

Get an insiders view of hair, makeup, and model mania with these behind-the-scenes clips from some of our fave New York Fashion Week shows.

Charlotte Ronson teamed her music influences (hello, her siblings are DJ Samantha Ronson and producer/DJ Mark Ronson) with her designs, creating a grunge meets military look. The hair (cornrows to one side) and makeup (dusky smoky eyes) added to the punk vibe of the entire show. {Watch.}

Betsey Johnson gave us her signature kooky style sense (as usual), but also a rich collection of tights, tops and frocks, inspired by the Victorian age. Look out for the lace spray painted hairdo in the clip. AMAZING! {Watch.}

• The Cynthia Steffe fashion show was packed with people who wanted to catch a glimpse of the luscious textures, exotic animal prints, menswear-inspired silhouettes, and polished-but-relaxed strands that went parading down the runway. {Watch.}

New York Fashion Week showed no signs of slowing down on Monday, when big-time designers like Betsey Johnson, Marc Jacobs, Monique Lhuillier, and Alice + Oliva presented their fall collections. Let's look at some of our favorite pieces.

BETSEY JOHNSON: She's known for her bold and colorful designs, and last night, Betsey Johnson showed off what she does best. There were leopard print, crazy floral patterns, and tons of neon colors for good measure.

MARC JACOBS: Marc Jacobs went for a '40s flair with dresses and separates designed with a vintage aesthetic. We loved the layering of lace under patterned fabrics, as well as form-fitting silhouettes. So freakin' Audrey Hepburn.

MONIQUE LHUILLIER: No one does romance like Monique Lhuillier, who showed a collection of gorgeous gowns in both neutrals and brights. The belted bow was a nice finishing touch on the super feminine frocks.

ALICE + OLIVIA: Alice + Olivia's über hip collection was a lesson in layering. To do: Throw floral dresses under cozy knits and printed jackets for a comfy but cool look. Oh, and don't forget your string of pearls or pendant necklace.

Blake Lively, Emma Watson, and Alexa Chung all made the cut (literally) for the 2011 Elle Style Awards held in London last night. All three trendsetters rocked dresses with risque—but not too scandalous—cutout details. Gossip Girl Blake's bold blue Emilio Pucci layered dress, which she wore with magenta Christian Louboutin heels, featured two sternum peepholes. Meanwhile, actress Emma Watson wore a sleeveless/side cutout Hakaan minidress with nearly matching Christian Louboutin pumps and an arm full of gold bracelets. And British fashion host Alexa Chung stepped out in a conservative below-the-knee blue print Yves Saint Laurent dress, which was slashed to reveal a bit of her belly.

Many of the high notes at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night were hit pre-show. On the red carpet celebs showed up in an array of ensembles that ran the gamut from super-sexy to far out. Still, there were a handful of fashion themes that repeated over and over again. Here are our faves:

GOLD STREAK: All that glitters must be gold because there were SO many gilded gowns at this year's Grammys. Kim Kardashian wore a glittering Kaufman Franco gown with a deep V-neck and sexy slit. Selena Gomez wore a pale gold J. Mendel dress with a pretty pink pout. And LeAnn Rimes glistened in a sequined gold Reem Acra cinch-waist gown.

ANIMAL INSTINCTS: The Grammys red carpet was where the wild things were last night. Teen queen Miley Cyrus wore a metallic tiger-print Roberto Cavalli dress, while Katy Perry's Giorgio Armani wings took her look over the edge. Nicki Minaj and Florence Welch (of Florence and the Machine) both wore Givenchy--Nicki teamed her poufy 'do with a leopard print ensemble, and Florence went all Swan Lake in a bird-appliqued gown.

SLITSVILLE: Svelte celebs, including Heidi Klum, Lea Michele, and Ciara, were giving us a little (er, A LOT) of leg on the red carpet. Heidi wore a gold Julien Macdonald gown with a center slit. Meanwhile, Lea and Ciara both wore Emilio Pucci dresses with sexy slits-to-there.

BLUE VALENTINE: The hottest hue on the red carpet was blue with Jennifer Hudson (in Versace) and Selma Blair (in Lanvin) both wearing navy, and Natasha Bedingfield and Keri Hilson (in Basil Soda) rocking a brighter shade of the color.

TAILOR MERMAID: Showing their fab figures were Nicole Kidman, Rihanna, and Mya, who all slinked into hip-hugging, mermaid-style gowns. Nicole and Rihanna both wore Jean-Paul Gaultier, while Mya rocked a Jean Fares column dress.
