The LWD (little white dress) is summer’s answer to the LBD, and celebrities love the look. “I’m a big fan of something feminine, but also strong, and I feel like this gets it,” Minka Kelly told InStyle.com of her Z Spoke by Zac Posen lace design at the Veuve Cliquot Polo Classic this month. And other stars agree, including Gabrielle Union, Nina Dobrev (in MaxMara), and Lauren Conrad (in Sparkle & Fade for Urban Outfitters top and a Paper Crown skirt). As for tips for how to wear this look with confidence, Kelly offered a few words of wisdom: “As long as you’re comfortable and as long as you’re confident, it will be sexy.” Keep that in mind when getting dressed this weekend!

There’s no better way to celebrate summer in New York City than a polo match! Rachel Zoe (in Rachel Zoe collection), Jennifer Morrison (in Yves Saint Laurent), Leslie Bibb (in Monique Lhuillier), Minka Kelly (in Z Spoke by Zac Posen), Zoe Saldana (in Theyskens’ Theory), and Padma Lakshmi (in Calypso) were just some of the many stars who attended the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic, held at Liberty State Park in Jersey City on Saturday afternoon. It was a new experience for some of the guests—“First time!” Bibb exclaimed—while others were longtime veterans—“It’s like my hundredth,” said Zoe, who had the honor of throwing out the first ball. “It just blows my mind that you can play a sport with such a graceful and huge animal,” Saldana told InStyle.com. “And they look like they enjoy it, too! That makes me happy.” During half-time, the crowd took a break from sipping Veuve champagne to stomp the divots Pretty Woman-style before a backdrop of the Statue of Liberty and the Manhattan skyline. And that wasn’t the only big weekend bash! See more stars at the weekend’s hottest events in the gallery.
May flowers are springing up everywhere—including on the pants of many celebrities. What we love most about this season’s crop of floral bottoms is how they can be worn in different ways. Katie Holmes went for girly daytime pastels in Current/Elliott, Shenae Grimes gave her look some edge pairing her Alice + Olivia pants with studded boots and leather top, Minka Kelly added sex appeal with her bright peep-toes and Dolce & Gabbana florals, and Kristin Cavallari looked business meeting-ready by layering a black blazer over her saturated darker Joe’s jeans. These ladies prove pretty posies work for almost any occasion—it’s just about mixing the outfit to work for you.

Minka Kelly gave her classic red lip look a modern edge with a swipe of shiny gloss. But here’s the secret to mastering the standout color: Red lipstick looks best with a clean shape, so be sure to line lips with a nude lip liner before puckering up. Choose a liner that is slightly lighter than your lipstick, but in the same color family so the two shades blend together. Crimson lip liner may come off as harsh, and if it’s not a perfect match, the effect will have too much contrast. Finish by smoothing a clear gloss over your pout, and apply eye makeup with a light hand.
