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

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!

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!

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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
Seriously, are you still on team cape?
Want to stay ahead for Spring/Summer 2012? Choose yellow or tangerine trous and wear with a dark coloured cardi this season. Electric blue was also seen all over the catwalks in London, New York ad Milan with designers such as Peter Pilotto going with an under water theme.
We can’t find a celeb in orange jeans yet- have you spotted one? Let us know or start a trend yourself!
