Reese Witherspoon has gone brunette! The star, who made serious waves at the Oscars with her perfectly-styled ringlets, debuted her new hue in Nashville over the weekend with her family. Witherspoon has worked her Legally Blonde highlights for years—the last time she crossed over to the dark side was in 2005 to play the role of June Carter-Cash, wife of country icon Johnny Cash. “My hair was dyed dark brown for Walk the Line,” she told InStyle previously. “It was a very sophisticated style for me.” We think it looks just as chic the second time around!

The fashion on TNT’s Dallas matches the mega-watt drama the show’s known for: statement necklaces, high heels, and bright colors are staples in the wardrobes of characters like Sue Ellen (Linda Gray), Ann Ewing (Brenda Strong), and Pamela Barnes (Julie Gonzalo). And thanks to a new HSN collection curated by the show’s costume designer (and friend to InStyle) Rachel Sage Kunin, you can have your own pieces of the Big Texas fashion you see on the show. Sage Kunin picked out the most Dallas-y HSN items and put them all in one place, including an Ann Ewing-inspired Joan Boyce double-stranded pearl necklace ($40, shown, right), a Sue Ellen-inspired houndstooth-printed dress by Serena Williams ($60), and Pamela-inspired blue snake-print Vince Camuto heels ($98). Head over to hsn.com to start shopping the picks now, and tune into HSN tomorrow night at 9/8c to catch Sage Kunin discussing how viewers can achieve the look of Dallas themselves. (That’s worth tuning in for, y’all!) And be sure to switch the channel to TNT tonight at 9/8c to see what the Ewings and the rest of the crew are up to!

A new episode of The Good Wife premiered last night, and it proved just how much your fashion can reflect your personality—especially within the context of characters on a TV show. Case in point: Julianna Margulies’s lawyer character Alicia Florrick (shown in Prada) was the complete opposite of guest star Morena Baccarin’s sex-crazed and money-hungry Isobel Swift (shown in Alexander McQueen). “We were trying to exude sex with Isobel and her clothes, and we don’t do that with Alicia,” costume designer Daniel Lawson told InStyle.com. In fact, this season, he’s making Alicia look more professional and buttoned-up than ever. “She’s been doing more ensembles this season, which gives a nod to her making partner and making more money,” Lawson explained. “That means looking more put together than previous seasons. If I tried to pull pieces for her from the first or second season, it’s impossible—she’s just such a different character.” Get all the exclusive details the looks he picked last night the gallery, and follow Lawson on Twitter @GoodWifeFashion for the latest updates.

Viktor & Rolf has giving back in mind this spring with the release of this lucite bangle with an interior painted in robin’s egg lacquer, a dainty detail we adore. Another element we love: all the profits from the $195 bracelet benefit the Fifty Nine Foundation, which works to spread awareness of the dangers associated with brain aneurysms. The piece is very limited-edition—only 45 were made—and you can place your order by calling the Dallas store Forty Five Ten at 214-559-4510.
