Emily Maynard has always been a fan of the Charlotte-based jewelry line Towne & Reese (she wore a ton of it on her season of The Bachelorette), and now the single mom is collaborating with the brand to create her own line. Her first-ever collection went on sale this week on her site, EmilyMaynard.com, and Emily is giving InStyle.com readers a special treat—20% off the entire collection by using the code INSTYLE710 at checkout. “Each piece reflects my style,” Maynard told InStyle.com of the 63-piece vintage and tribal-inspired lineup, of which each piece is named after one of her daughter Ricki’s friends. “Some days I wake up and dress very ladylike with heels and pearls, and the next day I’ll wear combat boots and ripped jeans, but that’s the fun part of being a girl.” Click through the gallery to check out some of her pieces, and shop the collection—with the InStyle discount—on emilymaynard.com.

And with the nuptials pending and a baby boy on the way (due this fall), there’s much to celebrate. Given Berry’s impeccable maternity style and her love of both flowy fabrics that drape and body-hugging silhouettes, we know her wedding dress will be one to watch. That’s why we scouted the runways, including Monique Lhuillier, Carolina Herrera and Reem Acra, and rounded up our top seven bridal gowns fit for the fashionable star and her baby bump.

Anna Kendrick, Emma Roberts and More Celebrate Detail at the Persol Magnificent Obsessions VIP Opening DinnerJul 11, 2013 @ 12:45 pm
“Incredible” was the word guests like Emma Roberts (in Edition by Georges Chakra), Zosia Mamet (in vintage Stone Fox Bride) and Emmy Rossum (in Carolina Herrera) used to describe the VIP dinner that celebrated the opening of the Persol Magnificent Obsessions: 30 Stories of Craftsmanship in Film exhibit at the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens last night. The exhibition features costumes, set notes, scripts and other artifacts from films where obsession was key to their successes. “[Obsession] is a word that means to those of us that are challenged when it comes to knowing when to stop, sometimes it’s OK,” said costume designer and dinner honoree Julie Weiss, whose work from Frida and Twelve Monkeys is part of the curation. And we were equally “obsessed” with how the museum decided to launch the exhibition. Students from Gao’s Kung Fu Academy performed a martial arts show (Master Gao trained the cast of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, a movie in the exhibit) and lavish food was served, including two courses (a chopped Chinese salad and choice of petit filet or vegetable ravioli), followed by mini spicy doughnuts, cake pops, and lemon tarts for dessert. Anna Kendrick (in Chaiken) was moved. “I think I’m going to cry,” Kendrick told InStyle.com of the exhibit.”It’s amazing.” Click to take an inside look. The exhibit will run through November 10, visit movingimage.us for more.
