While going over details of her “daring” and “sophisticated” new collection today, Victoria Beckham hinted at what she’ll be wearing on Oscars night for the Elton John AIDS Foundation‘s annual Academy Awards party. A model stepped out wearing a stunning off-the-shoulder silk gown (left) and Beckham said, “It looks effortless, it looks chic and I’m going to wear this to the Oscars”. She also told the intimate crowd of editors that her refined fall lineup was inspired by 1940s-era Dick Tracy comic-strips. “It’s ’30s and ’40s-influence mixed with cutting-edge uses of fabric,” Beckham said.

With three back-to-back runway shows on her Sunday schedule, Sophia Bush had to get creative to make all her outfit changes at the tents. “I’ll change behind any one of these [backstage] curtains,” revealed the One Tree Hill star, who swapped her flirty skirt and jacket at Rebecca Taylor (left) for a sexy Herve Leger minidress (middle), then changed once more into a pink dress and biker jacket for the Diane von Furstenberg show (right). “If I could do sneak into the back of the tents and watch all the shows in my sweats, I would, but you can’t do that at Fashion Week!” Bush said with a smile.

She’s been seen in cute heels and adorable dresses, and now Suri Cruise is adding “budding beauty expert” to her fashionable resume. Her latest precious style statement comes not from her closet, but from her vanity—ruby red lips! During a recent theater outing in N.Y.C., the three-year-old was spotted wearing a glossy red pout paired with a matching lemon-yellow cardigan and headband. Too cute!
Everything she showed was so beautifully made. The gorgeous fabrics and perfectly executed details made it so hard to choose just one look! I equally loved the emerald sleeveless dress with the grosgrain belt (near right) and the sexy black trench dress (far left).
