Sandra Bullock‘s new flick The Heat raked in $40 million during its opening weekend alone, and the star is celebrating on a stylish note! The 48 year-old actress caught our attention at the film’s very first screening in London, where she hit the carpet in a belted Victoria Beckham dress and L.A.M.B sandals. Opting for a range of noir ensembles for each event, Bullock proves the dark hue is anything but basic with each premiere look being more glamorous than the last. Bullock showed her love for warm-weather leather by incorporating the textured fabric into two of her red carpet looks: A leather cut-out Ermanno Scervino dress paired with Bottega Veneta sandals for the New York premiere, and an ASOS leather skirt, Michael Kors button-up, and Tabitha Simmons caged heels in Berlin. Another wow-worthy ensemble included a crisp black and white Roland Mouret number she wore to CinemaCon in Las Vegas.

Fringe swayed down the spring runways at shows like Bottega Veneta and Nina Ricci (left), giving everything from cocktail dresses to shoes a touch of cool movement. But how do you sport the look without looking like a Great Gatsby flapper? InStyle‘s fashion team advises that moderation is key. Look for separates that feature a few well-placed strips of fringe rather than an overly shaggy style (like this Ella Moss dress, $228 at ellamoss.com). A string-bedecked necklace (like this Annelise Michelson design, $475; 212-675-2346) with jeans and simple T-shirt is another foolproof and fabulous way to test-drive the style.

The Oscars may have dominated the air waves this weekend, but that doesn’t mean we forgot Milan Fashion Week! InStyle‘s Fashion Director Cindy Weber Cleary spent the whole weekend in Italy at the shows, and she sent us her favorite look from each day, starting with Versace (center). “Donatella went wild with her neo-punk theme for fall 2013, but rock stars and sex symbols alike will fight over this fierce vinyl look,” Weber declared. We can see it! Click through to see her favorite pieces at Bottega Veneta and Dolce & Gabbana, and check back tomorrow for more!

The Golden Globes are only four days away, and presenter Amanda Seyfried is still on the hunt for her dress! “When I land in L.A. tomorrow I’m going to my stylist’s house and she’ll show me dresses,” Seyfried told reporters at the National Board of Review Awards in New York last night, where she accepted the Best Ensemble honor with her Les Miserables co-stars (and her pals) Anne Hathaway and Eddie Redmayne. Given that her style includes a range of designer looks—such as a studded peach Bottega Veneta look for night’s event, a purple Alexander McQueen design, a flirty red Prabal Gurung look, and a sexy Balenciaga LBD, we predict she’ll choose another high-fashion piece to take the stage for Sunday’s show. Her only hint: “I think Stella McCartney is always doing something fun.” Could she be in Stella on Globes night? We’ll have to wait and see!

Salma Hayek turns 46 today! The Mexican actress (and InStyle’s July cover girl) looks just as good as ever, whether she’s walking the red carpet, hitting the town, or kicking butt alongside Blake Lively in Savages. By her gorgeous side is husband Francois-Henri Pinault, CEO of PPR—the Paris-based conglomerate whose labels include Bottega Veneta and Yves Saint Laurent. ”He’s very romantic, and so am I,“ she says of Pinault, who she married in 2009. “What’s really romantic are the moments that are unexpected. You can fly somewhere overnight to make [being together] ‘important,’ but it’s the little things of everyday life that count.“ We’re wishing Salma a happy birthday by looking back at some of her best looks ever.
