On the heels of the Met Gala, celebrity glamour showed no signs of slowing. This set traded punk-inspired couture for Summer-feeling cocktail dresses, glittering premiere gowns, and one very sleek white and black look (we're looking at you, Diane Kruger). Inside you'll find a Prabal Gurung-clad Kerry Washington, Jordana Brewster glowing in Jenny Packham, and further proof of Kate Bosworth's fashion prowess. Of course, that's just the beginning — click through for a look at this week's top 10.
Our obsession for polka dots — and one adorable Madewell sweater — is only growing thanks to celebrity-styled renditions of the sweet print. We spotted Jordana Brewster outfitting Madewell's Spotdot Sweater ($75) with cool Fall staples, like her blue denim and wedged desert booties. Now January Jones is giving the same dotted knit her own spin with black skinnies and motorcycle boots for an edgier effect. We can't name a favorite — that's your job — but we will say both actresses give more reason to snap up the dotted sweater for ourselves. Now tell us which version do you prefer?
On the Fall runways, from Marc Jacobs to Stella McCartney, we spied polka dots having a bit of a style resurgence. But, it's not just designers that are embracing the prints. From the dressed down to the retro chic, we've spied our favorite celebrities showing off their own takes on the dotted print. To help you do the same, we've culled seven celebrity examples to inspire a week's worth of dotted styles. Jordana Brewster goes casual, Kirsten Dunst, vintage glam — all in all, this batch of chic celebrity looks will forever challenge your association of polka dots with Minnie Mouse. Click through for the inspiration and the looks to shop. Plus, don't forget to check out our video tutorial to style one great polka-dot blouse three ways.
Actress Jordana Brewster looked casual, comfortable, and chic walking around Los Angeles yesterday in a printed blue and pink dress, gold Haviana flip-flops, grey toenail varnish, and a tan tote. However, what makes this daytime look so glamorous is her perfectly straight yet full hair, red sunglasses, and her bright smile. I love this outfit and think it could look great on just about any figure. What do you think of Jordana's LA look?
Diane Kruger rocked a shorts suit last night for a party thrown by InStyle. The bash, held inside West Hollywood's London Hotel, brought out other starlets like Jaime King, Lea Michele, and Jordana Brewster. Diane's ensemble was from her pal Jason Wu's resort collection — see what the other celebs wore to InStyle's Summer soirée. Diane had a night with her lady friends after a few fun outings with her main man, Joshua Jackson. They had a sweet day date last week checking out Captain America, as both Josh and Diane gear up for the return of his show Fringe on Sept. 23.
This week's batch of celebrity style inspired fresh seasonal looks for street strolling and event-hopping. From Gwyneth Paltrow's play on classic Summer staples to Alexa Chung's signature quirky-sweet, there's plenty in the way of celebrity fashion fodder. Now, we want to see who was paying attention to it all — test yourself!

Katie Holmes and Gisele Bundchen shared a red carpet last night to celebrate the Beauty Culture exhibit, which opens tomorrow, at the Annenberg Space For Photography in LA. It's a collection of images from various photographers, including a snap of Gisele herself, designed to make viewers question the pursuit of beauty. More Hollywood stars came out for the event, including Halle Berry, Ali Larter, and Amber Heard. Supermodel Gisele wrote that she was home in LA after a quick trip to the Amazon, where she was able to do the environmental work that's close to her heart. She posted on her blog, "What a magical place the Amazon is, and so full of history and legends . . . I’m here, sharing my special experience and feelings so we can all think about it. We need and we want to develop, but not at the cost of damaging the planet." The visit was one of philanthropy and fashion, as there was a Gisele Bundchen bikini sighting in Sao Paolo when she took the runway for the Hope Valentine's Day special collection show last week. Katie, meanwhile, is back on the West Coast after a stop in Chicago to honor Oprah and a stint in Florida. She got some swimsuit time in as well when she hit the pool with daughter Suri at her Miami hotel, near where husband Tom Cruise has been working on Rock of Ages.
Last night, Valentino-styled celebs stepped out to honor the label's creative directors, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli — and share a few cocktails — in West Hollywood. Chloe Sevigny and Kate Bosworth played hostesses, along with Teen Vogue's Lisa Love, and set the fashion bar high — I'm crushing hard on Kate's red leather pants. True Blood couple Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer brought their A-game, and Amber Valletta wowed with something leggy. Click on to get the whole Valentino-clad crew.
Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale attended a Tod's/MOCA party in Los Angeles last night, barely containing their laughs on the red carpet. Gwen's big smile shone almost as much as her gorgeous silver dress as she held on to her hubby's arm, who didn't perform last night unlike their weekend appearance in Las Vegas. Neil Patrick Harris looked smart in his grey shirt and leather jacket, while Halle Berry greeted Pierce Brosnan on the red carpet. Jessica Alba and Kate Bosworth wore their LBDs to the event, while Kate Beckinsale and Jordana Brewster brightened up proceedings in blue and green. Gorgeous!

Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez and Vin Diesel brought Fast & Furious to London's Leicester Square last night, as they attended the premiere of the fourth installment in the high octane movie franchise. Boyzone's Shane Lynch showed up in full racing driver gear, alongside Sam and Amanda Marchant. Ben Adams also showed up to see the film, and rather randomly MC Harvey decided to lift his shirt and show off his abs for the crowd. Paul was looking rather delish in his sharp suit, definitely adding some manjoyment to the proceedings!
Are you a fan of the franchise, and will you be going to see the latest movie when it's out on April 10? Let me know!
