A new episode of The Good Wife premiered last night, in which Julianna Margulies’s character Alicia Florrick spends the entire episode bouncing between the law offices and the coroner’s inquest room. She had to dress for the two different locations—suits for the office and coats for the chilly inquest room—which she did with the help of costume designer Daniel Lawson. “The director wanted the coroner’s office to look really cold so you could see their breath, and that’s what it looked like, but really, the room was hot,” said Lawson. “And I had everyone wearing coats, but that’s what the story called for!” Get all the details on last night’s looks he picked for Alicia (including Escada, Armani, and Akris) in the gallery, and follow Lawson on Twitter @GoodWifeFashion for the latest updates.
Tonight is the premiere of the 16th season of Dancing with the Stars—and it comes with a teaser from Pitbull! The long-running ballroom dance competition has attracted singers, dancers, football players, and even Olympic gymnasts to compete in the past—and this season is no different: The Fab Five’s Aly Raisman is on-board, as well as country singer Kellie Pickler, the Baltimore Ravens’ Jacoby Jones, Disney Channel star Zendaya Coleman, and more, all getting their dancing shoes on for their inaugural performances tonight. Plus, the professionals have been getting in on the fun, too: All the ladies, including Karina Smirnoff and Cheryl Burke, backed up Pitbull when he performed “Feel This Moment” in the teaser for tonight’s two-hour premiere (above). It’s anyone’s guess whose twinkle toes will take this year’s Mirrorball Trophy—last year, Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani took home the coveted disco ball-topped statuette—but tell us: Who do you think is the Dancing star to beat this season?
Plus, look back at Dancing With the Stars in seasons past!
We love color so much at InStyle, we dedicated our entire April issue to it! And we’re taking our obsession one step further right here, by giving you a Color of the Day on InStyle.com, complete with How to Wear It tips.
TODAY’S COLOR: SAGE
WHY WE LOVE IT:
It’s your new go-to neutral. A more refined version of olive, this understated shade is content to sit back and let other hues take the spotlight.
GOES GREAT WITH:
It’s especially good at setting the stage for brights—red, berry, hot pink!—or even other, more vivid greens, such as this one spotted at Stella McCartney’s show (shown).
DIP YOUR TOE IN:
Switch in a swipe of sage eye shadow in place of your neutral brown for a subtle pop. (Try Make Up For Ever’s eyeshadow in #47; $20 at sephora.com.)
GO HEAD-TO-TOE SAGE:
Scoop up a sage blouse to pair with your bright skirts and pants, just in time for spring. (Try Vince’s half-button silk top, $258 at piperlime.com).
Plus, get even more tips for how to wear spring’s hottest colors.
He’s not Matthew Crawley anymore! Former Downton Abbey star Dan Stevens attended the GLAAD Awards this weekend, where he debuted a shorter brunette ‘do and some manly stubble to go with it—a far cry from the parted, slicked-back blonde hair and clean shave of Lady Mary’s late love (may he rest in peace). We love Stevens in all his forms (that accent helps), but tell us: Do you prefer Dan with his natural blonde hair, or are you loving the way this brunette chop makes his baby blues pop? (Swoon.) Vote in our poll below!

Get your pout ready for spring with bright lips. It’s a go-to look stars and designers love: InStyle cover girl Jessica Alba adored neon coral, Mad Men star January Jones sported bright red, and Jason Wu’s spring 2013 runway models all donned a blend of vivid magenta and pink. And we’ve got exclusive details on how you can get seven colorful kissers for yourself, straight from the makeup artists who created them. Click through the gallery to learn how to make them your own—one sunny look for each day of the week!

Girls Fashion: 4 Girls, 4 Outfits, The Looks Costume Designer Jenn Rogien Thinks Were the Most Memorable of All SeasonMar 18, 2013 @ 1:09 pm
The Girls season 2 finale aired last night! And while each Girl—save the missing Jessa (Jemima Kirke)—had a pivotal, emotional moment to wrap up the last ten episodes (Marnie [Allison Williams] and Charlie, awww), there were also, as always, standout style moments, too. That’s why we caught up with costume designer Jenn Rogien for the last time this season to ask her what her favorite looks were, and she gave us her top outfit for each. “Every time I think I get to the most fun look, or the weirdest or the most uncomfortable, another look comes along that’s all of those things all over again,” Rogien told InStyle.com this morning (think Hannah’s [Lena Dunham] mesh tank top). Click through for Jenn’s favorite looks.
