Watching Sean Lowe’s season of The Bachelor is extra fun, as we’re asking one of our favorite fashionable Bachelorettes, Emily Maynard (Lowe came in third on Emily’s season), to tell us which of the contestants had the prettiest outfits each week. Last night, Sean surprised three of the bachelorettes to watch sunrise in St. Croix at 5am. ”I loved how none of them were divas or made a big deal about it,” Emily told InStyle.com of Desiree, Catherine, and Lindsay. They threw on some shorts, a bikini, and ran out the door, and still managed to look so cute.” Click through the gallery to see the other outfits Emily loved most on last night’s episode.
Princess Jasmine from Aladdin is the latest Disney princess to get a beauty line! Following Sephora’s first Disney collaboration for a Cinderella-inspired line, the retailer is launching “a whole new world” of rich jewel tones inspired by Agrabah’s leading lady for spring. Jasmine’s range includes fragrance, a nail polish set, compact mirror, eye shadow quad, a kohl liner trio, and scented body powder. The standout in the offerings? A 17-shade Storybook palette, which uses actual colors from the film stills repurposed as eye shadow. The Princess Jasmine collection hits Sephora stores and sephora.com in March. And since all the products are $55 and under, you can save your three wishes for Cinderella’s killer pair of Louboutins.

“Sensual, soulful, sculptural,” were the three S’s Donna Karan used to describe her fall 2013 collection. Ranging from perfect-for-day relaxed trousers, crisp camel toppers, and sculptural evening gowns, the black and brown liquid designs floated down the runway with a power that was reinforced by the models’ dramatic and futuristic swinging ponytails. The result, a collection for women who “work with passion and dress with emotion,” said Karan, a description fit for designer herself. See our favorite looks in the gallery!

From McQueen to Prada to punk! You’ll have to wait until May to see the Costume Institute’s new PUNK: Chaos to Couture exhibit, but press got to see a sneak peek yesterday—and sponsor Moda Operandi‘s Aslaug Magnusdottir was right there with us. “We’ll see in exhibition how pervasive punk’s influence has been on fashion and how it remains a powerful form of expression today,” Magnusdottir told InStyle.com. And co-chair Rooney Mara is living proof! From the bit we saw, you can expect patent leather and netted looks from Comme des Garcons and Rodarte. And remember that every exhibit is christened with the annual, ultra-glamorous Met Gala, where the red carpet will probably feature a lot more black this year. PUNK: Chaos to Couture will open at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 9th—will you be attending?
Update: The Met just extended PUNK‘s closing date from August 9th to August 11th, open 100 days total to honor Clash guitarist Mick Jones’ famous quote, “Punk only lasts 100 days in its purest form.” Sweet!
