Miranda Kerr is always at the top of our Look of the Day list—and it’s all thanks to stylist Jessica Paster! The woman behind all of Miranda’s major style moments—including the slit-up-to-there Zuhair Murad stunner she wore to InStyle‘s Golden Globes party—also helped her pick out the perfect dress for the Oscars after-parties, and their ultimate choice came with some great advice. “You know, let’s not discount a beautiful black dress,” Paster told us over the phone while skimming couture racks for her famous client. “Because some dresses are not just a beautiful black dress. Some dresses are just gorgeous dresses that just happen to be black.” Especially if the black dress in question is silk chiffon Valentino like Miranda’s! “I think that if you really know your client and you see a beautiful dress, you just know that they’re a perfect match for each other,” Paster added. So remember, ladies: There’s nothing basic about black!

Our favorite looks this week—plucked from our Look of the Day section—happened to represent two of spring’s biggest trends: black and white, and shades of red. Jennifer Lopez was white hot in Lanvin, Miranda Kerr stepped out with a leather Givenchy tote and buckled Barbara Bui booties, Michelle Obama took the Inaugural Ball stage in red Jason Wu, Diane Kruger wore Chanel to the label’s haute couture show, and Rose Byrne wore a draped Balenciaga dress in her namesake color. So who do you think dressed best? Vote in the poll below! More
What a pretty week it was! We started things off with a look at one of Van Cleef & Arpels’ jaw-dropping rocks, took a trip to Jonathan Adler—where we found a tranquil place to dream—and snapped a shot of Miranda Kerr looking devastatingly gorgeous, as always. See more of this week’s best photos in the gallery below, and come back every Saturday for our favorite shots.
With all the preparation it took for the Victoria’s Secret Angels to get their bodies ready for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show (ahem, shown), Miranda Kerr is quick to tell you she’s not stuffing herself with cake, sugar, and treats as a celebration. “To be honest, [junk food] isn’t really for me,” she told InStyle.com at last night’s launch party for photographer Russell James’s new book, Nomad Two Worlds in New York City (Kerr is featured in the tome). “I’m just healthy and I like to be that way. I don’t deprive myself. If I want something, I’ll have a little bit. It’s not like ‘Oh, now I get to go eat a burger.’ It’s more like, ‘Let’s party! Let’s dance!’” And she’ll have more to toast to soon enough—the show airs December 4th at 10/9c on CBS, and Kerr will be watching. “I’m sure I’ll be with all the girls celebrating,” she said. Who wants in?

Months of preparation, weeks of fittings, days of rehearsals, and hours of beauty primping all led up to forty minutes hard-to-resist fun for last night’s taping of the 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in New York. “It’s a dream come true!” Victoria’s Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrosio told InStyle.com of her experience, which was made only so much better by the fact she modeled the $2.5 million Floral Fantasy Bra. “This is most desirable, most beautiful, most known show in the world. Every year it gets bigger and better!” And she’s right, it was big—37 models showed off 65 lingerie looks, sashaying down the runway to live music performed by Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber, and Rihanna. The pieces were broken up into six groups—kicking off with Circus (Adriana Lima—ever the ringmaster—opened the show), Dangerous Liaisons (set to Rihanna’s “Diamonds” song), Calendar Girls (with Bruno Mars in the background), Pink Is Us (when Justin Bieber serenaded the PINK crew with “Beauty and the Beat”), Silver Screen Angels (Bruno, again), and Angels in Bloom (closing it out with Rihanna’s “Fresh Off The Runway”). Click through to see the highlights, and tune in to watch the complete show December 4th at 10/9c on CBS.
As New York City prepares for the arrival of a massive winter storm, Miranda Kerr hit the town looking like she barely felt a chill! The Victoria’s Secret Angel winterized her black leather Maison Martin Margiela shorts by adding sheer black tights and ankle boots, pairing the look with a gray Isabel Marant sweater, Chloé denim shirt, and Givenchy’s Antigona handbag.
