Our favorite looks this week—plucked from our Look of the Day section—were a mix of detailed black dresses and punchy springtime prints. Kirsten Dunst premiered Upside Down in a belted black dress, Zoe Saldana celebrated her stylist at The Hollywood Reporter‘s luncheon in Carven, Katie Holmes feted the New York Observer‘s anniversary in Dolce & Gabbana, Selena Gomez stunned at SXSW in Dolce & Gabbana‘s bright separates, and Olivia Wilde opened The Incredible Burt Wonderstone in peek-a-boo Gucci.

If you’re anything like us, you woke up with an extra spring in your step today because Net-a-Porter launched their big end of season sale! But when we started to click through, we were heartbroken to discover that most of the items aren’t being sold in many sizes. Sigh. So, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorites that are still available in a nice range of sizes. You won’t find bargain basement prices, but if you’re looking to splurge on a bit of high fashion, there’s great stuff to be found including Isabel Marant crystal earrings reduced from $550 to $385. Kate Middleton‘s go-to brand, Issa, has a black sequined dress at half price for $732.50. Emma Watson fans, this one’s for you: the belted Carven dress she recently wore on the Today show has been marked down to $726. Rag & Bone desert boots originally sold for $450 and are now $315. Shop fast though—we can’t promise these chic pieces will be around much longer!
The elegant French brand Carven launched in 1945 as a couture house that catered especially to petite women—designer Madame Carvan was a just over five-feet-tall herself. But in 2009, former Givenchy designer Guillaume Henry took the reigns and completely re-invented the label as a ready-to-wear powerhouse. Some of our favorite celebrities are certainly taking notice. This year, Kim Kardashian has worn the label (along with her fashion twin Ciara!) in Paris. Emma Watson stepped out in a taupe Carven dress for her Today show appearance this morning. While Kate Walsh opted for a rust-colored, body-con look earlier this season.
