The parties continue during New York Fashion Week! Elizabeth Olsen stopped by Scoop NYC in the Meatpacking District to show her support for celebrity stylist Cher Coulter, who was launching her collaboration with AG Denim. “My concept was to really make it about a lot of different people: the girl that’s a bit more eclectic, the girl that’s a bit more rock ‘n roll, the girl that’s a bit more classic, and then the girl who’s a bit more of a sex bomb,” Coulter told InStyle.com of her new jeans.” Just a few blocks away at Manhattan hotspot The Electric Room, Olivia Palermo joined celebrity-loved designer Rachel Roy for the after-party celebrating lingerie brand La Perla’s new collection.

Elizabeth Olsen and Dakota Fanning celebrated the premiere of their film Very Good Girls at the Sundance Film Festival with an after-party hosted by The Mint Agency, The Branding Be, and Simple Night at the Nur Khan Presents NK pop-up in Park City, Utah. In the film, Fanning (in Louis Vuitton) and Olsen play best friends who take a risky pact during the summer following their senior year—only to have their friendship tested in a big way. ”I’ve known Lizze for a while,“ Fanning told InStyle.com when she dropped by our portrait studio earlier that day. “We really, truly love each other and are close.“

In the last two weeks alone, Jessica Stam, Gemma Arterton, Elizabeth Olsen, and Jennifer Lawrence have all worn dresses by London-based Antonio Berardi—much to his delight. “[As a designer], I try to enhance the female body but it’s really about the woman,” he told us following the MADE for Peroni Young Designer Awards in New York City, just days before his fashion show during London Fashion Week. “Clothes are just clothes. They’re pieces of cloth that need to be brought to life.” And ever since he started designing his own line after graduating from Central St. Martins in 1994, stars have gravitated to his looks that are as intricate with tailoring as they are sensual with their body-contouring shapes. And it’s a bonus: Having a celebrity model can mean big business. “Seeing these women in these clothes makes people want them,” he said. “Erin Wasson wore a dress to Cannes. That dress was incredibly expensive, but after Erin wore it, it sold out worldwide,” he said.”Sometimes the clothes can be the most amazing clothes in the world, but unless people see them on an amazing woman they’re not always interested.” See more stars in his beautiful designs by clicking through the gallery, and visit saksfifthavenue.com and net-a-porter.com to shop his collections.
