Pretty in Pink: Rachel Bilson, Nicole Richie + Jessica Alba

Rachel Bilson wears a punchy pink for an editorial in Lucky magazine (love the beaded t-shirt and floaty skirt combo) while Nicole Richie channels Lady Penelope in a seriously tailored number for Ocean Drive magazine.

Jessica Alba however opts for a more delicate sugar pink hue and looks super pretty in Prada for another Cali magazine, Los Angeles Confidential.

Punchy pink jacket is a win

My favourite look of the lot!

Strike a pose...

Jessica Alba looks fantastic in Prada


Best dressed: big awards round-up

Woah tis the season of lots of awards and therefore even more red carpet looks. It’s the Golden Globes tonight/tomorrow depending on where you live, so we better get this round-up done fast!

Miranda Kerr stole the headlines at W magazine’s pre Golden Globe party in a white plunging dress.  Dare we say it, while plenty of people looked super pretty, the dresses were a little ‘safe’. So here are our pick of the more interesting outfits, including Emma Stone’s peachy dress at the Vanity Fair party, Rooney Mara in Lanvin at the AFI Awards, plus Rachel Bilson and Kirsten Dunst at the Art of Elysium Heaven Gala. Enjoy!

My fav: Rachel Bilson in Chanel

Rooney Mara in Lanvin. This girl can't put a fashionable foot wrong!

Emma Stone looks peachy - We're not 100% sure this dress works with her colouring but it is different compared to a zillion body-con numbers!

Rachel Bilson: Travelling outfit inspiration

We have mixed emotions about celebrity airport pics. We LOVE to see proper casual kit and ideas of how to cosy up on over-air conditioned planes, but are super sceptical (and jealous) of people stepping off the red-eye with bouncy hair, no trace of dark circles, make-up not rubbed across their face, skinny jeans and heeled boots. Yeah right!

So we’re impressed by Rachel Bilson who looks nice, comfy and most importantly believable! We really like her poncho idea (kind of Sound of Music traveller?!) 70s hat disguising hair dishevelment and the awesome suitcase (even nicer than Missoni’s efforts?).

Will be copying this for my next long-haul flight

Check out Rachel Bilson’s shoe collection

We’ve been waiting to see Rachel Bilson’s shoes designs for ShoeMint.com for a while and we’re not disappointed.

Rachel joins the Olsen twins, Kate Bosworth and Jessica Simpson who all have their own ‘Mint’ site selling designed goods from t-shirts to jewellery.

Of course we are also anticipating Cheryl Cole’s shoe collection for Stylistpick. However, while Cheryl’s shoes will be under £40, Rachel’s seem to be pricier at around $80 and are made from real leather, working with Steve Madden and her stylist Nicole Chavez.

We love the leopard-skin wedges but which shoe is your favourite?

Kick-ass wedge boots (and love the trousers)

Pretty and practical

My favourite: cute leopard skin wedge boots (with a lush Isabel Marant jumper)

Rachel Bilson = Nylon covergirl

You know how we love Rachel Bilson? Well we love this Nylon cover too – especially the gold skirt and mussed-up hair. While

Rachel definitely has a signature style, we like the way she’s embracing edgy catwalk trends too and even designing her own range of shoes!

Yeah Nylon covers are a bit same-y but we love Rachel so it's all good!

Rachel rocks the fetish trend in her own cool way

Seriously brave print combo

Much more Rachel's signature style (LOVE the shirt!)

Celebrity trend: Wear S/S12 NOW!

…No we don’t mean wearing flip flops in winter (but shorts are fine!)

We were glued to the S/S12 fashion weeks and got incredibly excited at the prospect of floral prints, pretty pastels, crisp white dresses, seaside and underwater-inspired collections and so much more…but then got back to the business of dressing for this season.

But now so on planet celebrity where it counts to be ‘first’ (and Hollywood is very probably quite a lot hotter than London!)

We got so excited when we spotted Sienna Miller wearing Matthew Williamson just a couple of weeks after London Fashion Week but The Telegraph has surpassed us by spotting plenty more famous folks wearing next season’s collections…Burberry, Jil Sander, Prabal Gurung, Jason Wu, Calvin Klein, Mary Katrantzou and Christian Dior.

Rachel Bilson turns shoe designer

We’ve just been drooling over Cheryl Cole’s new shoe collection with Stylepick and what happens? Another A-lister has turned her hand to shoe design and it’s one of our favourites…Rachel Bilson YAY!

Rachel’s teaming up with her super stylist Nicole Chavez to launch ShoeMint (in the same vein as Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s StyleMint?) to produce a line of footwear available online.

Brilliant blush!

Apparently this pair of super-high flocked-look Mary Janes ($79.99) are part of the new collection and are designed by Rachel. We love her laid-back style too so can’t wait to see if there are any cute flats on the shoe menu too.

Meanwhile, Rachel has popped up on US TV show ‘Last Night with Jimmy Fallon’  wearing a stunning Preen dress and funky grey platform court shoes…we have no idea if these shoes are from the new collection but we do like them!

This is one perfect outfit!

Kim Kardashian: Capes and carousels!

Kim Kardashian has scored a trend hat-trick. How may you ask? Take a look.

1)     We recently wrote about the fashion face-off at the Snap Fashion office: capes vs ponchos. It seems like Kim has joined Team Cape (and bonus points for Heritage trend lovers, it’s in check) and she proves you don’t have to look like Sherlock Holmes! Leighton Meester, Fearne Cotton & Rachel Bilson are all fans btw.

2)     Take every opportunity to ride carousels – if it’s good enough for Kate Moss and Louis Vuitton at Paris Fashion Week we’ll give it a go and Kim Kardashian has jumped on this circular bandwagon.

3)     Kim also rocks a 70s floppy hat. We’re not sure about over-the-knee boots with such a short dress but the suede also adds another retro touch to the outfit. P.S. Olivia Palermo and Rachel Zoe also love a floppy hat!

Cape vs Poncho – whose team are you on?

Here in the Snap Fashion office we’re having a debate – capes or ponchos.  Which is your choice for keeping cosy this Autumn?

TEAM CAPE – Jenny, Founder of Snap

For some reason I was drawn to capes this year, with their warm yet stylish charm.  And it seems that I’m not alone.  Many a celebrity has been spotted sporting a stylish cape.  Leighton Meester (aka Blair Wardorf) brings the cape to the Upper East Side, proving that it’s not just for super heros, but for super cute winter wear that can take you right through to Spring.

Blair Waldorf Cape

We'd do anything for this pea green cape!

If you’ve got the same budget at Blair Wardorf we’ve found a beautiful cape on Net-A-Porter.  Made of leather with shearling trim and lining, it’s bang on trend for this AW season.  It’s designed by Zero+MariaCornejo and is £2,635 – so worth it!

Net a Porter Cape

This cape is our lust-have

If you’re like us and don’t quite have that budget, no need to fear.  I myself have just invested in a cape (to the despair of our poncho-loving editor) for a bargainous £35 from Tesco.  It’s super-soft and has expensive looking duffle detailing.  You have to move fast though – they’re selling like hotcakes and most sizes have already sold out on the website.

Tesco cape

Only £35 - this is our bargain cape of the season!

Another celebrity fan of the cape is Rachel Bilson.  I’ve always admired her style, from her days in The OC to generally looking casual yet chic in LA, and she definitely knows how to rock the common cape.  This one is allegedly from Topshop, but if you’re looking for one this season, Dorothy Perkins has some fantastic styles too at affordable prices.

Rachel Bilson cape

Great look teaming the cape with skinny jeans and warm winter boots!

Our final celebrity cape champion is Fearne Cotton.  The humble cape features no less than 4 times in her new collection for Very.  We love this Sherlock-Holmes style number.

Fearne Cape

Elementary, Cotton.

So show your allegiance to Team Cape – embrace the cold weather, grab a soft yet stylish winter warmer and show those poncho followers what you’re made of.

TEAM PONCHO – Sarah, editor of Snap

Yawn! When I think of capes I think Sherlock Holmes or Superman – neither of them bad but both playing by the rules, whereas the poncho/blanket wrap coat is for free sprits- those who tear up the rulebook, look cool but keep cosy. Think 60s festival wear, Kate Moss and in true Gossip Girl style, Serena instead of prim-and-proper Blair.

Kate Moss chose a poncho for her hen night at the V Festival

Unlike the cape, the open poncho is incredibly versatile -handy for negotiating the perils of British weather – and can be belted up to make it super cosy or just thrown on for sunnier days  – loads more options for styling fun!

It’s also a really easy way of tapping into the Navajo trend and looks amazing with skinny jeans or shorts. It can be dressed down with ethnic-style jewellery and a tasselled bag for a festival-friendly look or cinched in at the waist and paired with smart leather heeled boots for a more polished style that still screams – it’s the weekend and I want to chill out and have fun!

Yummier than chocolate - Aztec blanket from Topshop £36

Poncho lust! Wear with floppy hat for 70s chic - Le Mont St Michel Fringed Wool Poncho with Pockets £190 from ASOS

Superb belting action - lots more outfit options and guaranteed to fit!

My poncho! Worn by someone else v expertly! Will swap shorts for jeans and add chelsea boots for cold weather.

Seriously, are you still on team cape?
