As you may have concluded from our coverage over the weekend, New York Fashion Week marched along on Saturday and Sunday. It's Fashion Week, as in seven days, and not just the work week of regular ol' Joes. There were a ton of shows over the weekend, including DKNY, Christian Siriano, and Diane von Furstenberg, so celeb sightings were at an all-time high.

FYI: Romeo & Juliet comes out tomorrow (SQUEE!)—and we canNOT wait to see Douglas Booth run around in a pair of velvet jodhpurs, y’all. Of course, we’re ALSO really excited about seeing our ultimate teen style crush, Hailee Steinfeld, shine bright like a diamond in a bunch of ornately embellished Elizabethan gowns. No, really. She'll actually be covered in a bunch of Swarovski crystals, thanks to the backing of the bling giant’s new film division. This will be Swarovski Entertainment Ltd’s first feature film (cue "Started From the Bottom," but like, lol, not really), and they're spilling the deets on Romeo & Juliet’s unique costume design BEFORE we see the threads in action tomorrow on the big screen. (SQUEE x2!)

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.”

Oh, hey. How was your weekend? Did you wear Emporio Armani at all? Maybe just to lounge around your house? No? Did you wear Armani to a party? No? Well then, I hate to break it to you, you have nothing in common with the attendees at the Teen Vogue Young Hollywood party, because they all threw on some Armani.
Hailee Steinfeld, Victoria Justice, Kiernan Shipka, and Holland Roden all chose to wear Emporio Armani, one of the party's sponsors, though in totally varied ways. Hailee wore a high-collared, black dress, but managed to fit in a print (see: ASOS Magazine spread/the reason we're broke) via a plaid shirt that she tied around her waist. That's definitely one way to dress down Armani. She also debuted some new bangs, that are perfectly piece-y and add a little bit of edgy teen style to her look. It's def working for her.

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.
Oh, red carpet. With the exception of the occasional summer blockbuster premiere, these warmer months are generally devoid of step-and-repeat steez. Luckily, come August, there's always the Teen Choice Awards (and of course, our own VMAs later this month #shamelessplug). The 2013 TCAs certainly didn't let us down in the well-dressed PYT department, and even though it was pretty much impossible, we did our best to whittle it down to the top looks of the night from Demi Lovato to Hailee Steinfeld and everyone in between.

Lovatics were treated to two Demi outfits as didn't just attend but also hit the stage to perform her single, "Made In The USA." On the carpet, D wore a black satin brocade blazer (which was swapped out for a leather jacket on stage), relaxed fit white tee, leather leggings, and black platform booties. Angling for a rock edge, the look was finished with layered silver necklaces, heavy smoky eyeliner, and a dramatic half-up half-down 'do with a high pompadour.
So, you thought that the Met Gala was the only Fashion (because a capital "F" is totally necessary here) event this summer?! Think again. All the dresses from last month's "Punk: Chaos to Couture" gala may still be fresh in everyone's memories, but another equally stylish party took place last night in New York City—and while it might not be themed, the boundary-pushing glamour definitely didn't disappoint. We're talking about the CFDA Awards, held by The Council of Fashion Designers of America in honor of the best emerging creatives in womenswear, menswear, accessories, and more. Just like the Met Gala, many of the attendees brought celeb dates, who pulled out ALL the fashion stops. But who looked the best? See our top picks below!

There's absolutely no doubt that Hailee Steinfeld is one of the fashion world's newest darlings, and EVERYBODY wants a piece of the 16-year-old actress. She attended last month's Met Gala decked out in dramatic Donna Karan, but last night, she kept things fresh in a shimmery floral two-piece by Suno. The subtle crop top (you can barely see a sliver of tummy!) and the tea length skirt add a dash of formality, whereas her effortless side part and bright lip keep things young and fresh. She might barely have her drivers license, but who cares? Age ain't nothing but a number, and Hailee, we'll take style notes from you any day.

It's not just the Oscars ceremony itself that draws hoards of well-heeled starlets, ladies turn it out for the parties during and after the show, too. One of the biggest, most anticipated annual Oscar parties is Vanity Fair's which often boasts a stacked Young Hollywood guest list CHOCK full of shimmering, glittering, pretty young thangs. Last night's Vanity Fair Oscar Party was certainly no exception as a major trend for party-goers was dresses that shone and glinted in the light.

Wondering who fashion's brightest, youngest actress is this year? Look no further than MaxMara's annual crowning of the 2013 Women In Film MaxMara Face Of The Future Award winner. The prize, which is given to a young actress every year, is a pretty solid predictor of what young ingenue is going to majorly step up her fashion game in the year to come, and also an indicator of a starlet who hasn't been a sartorial slouch in years prior either. Last year's award was given to Chloë Grace Moretz, who already had a taste for Chanel, but has since gone to countless fashion shows, been on countless magazine covers, and been named the face of Aeropostale. So who is going to be blowing up our Instagram feeds with her stylish swag in 2013? Hailee Steinfeld, ladies and gentlemen! Yeah, we know you're totally not surprised, she has already been the face of Miu Miu, after all.
The tornado of glamour, celebs, and clothing that is New York Fashion Week won't kick off for a couple more weeks, but good news! There's a whole other Fashion Week happening right this second across the pond. That's right, Paris Fashion Week Haute Couture is in full swing, with designers like Karl Lagerfeld and Raf Simons showing their intricately-crafted, totally swoon-worthy wares. And while you can always keep up with the action by checking traditional photo sites, this season it's the front row fixtures and models themselves who are REALLY the ones giving us the ultimate inside scoop (via Instagram, of course). So grab your phone and get ready to follow—we've got your Paris Fashion Week "It List" right here.
There's no better person to kick off the group than fashion darling Hailee Steinfeld, who's already garnered QUITE the modeling resume for a 16-year-old. The former Miu Miu face stopped by the Chanel show earlier today, looking the part of a Parisienne in a leather pencil skirt, collegiate cardigan, Chanel purse, and perfectly tilted hat. Besides posing with Karl, Hailee also called out Cara Delevingne on Instagram with a close-up of the model working it on the runway. Awww.
