This is what Kristen Stewart has taught us about her style: If she’s wearing something formal on a red carpet, you can be sure something cozy is close by. The actress pulled another one of her fashion switcheroos at last night’s New York premiere of On the Road, when she changed out of her sheer embroidered look by Erdem and neon Louboutin pumps in favor of jeans, a leather jacket, and Doc Martens (not her typical Converses) for the after-party. See more of her style switches in the gallery—it’s really become her thing!
Oxblood is the color of the season, and Bella Heathcote knows it! The actress accessorized her bordeaux ruffled Roksanda Ilincic dress with matching Christian Louboutin heels at last night’s New York premiere of Killing Them Softly, and the gold accents and laser-cut detail on the pumps were a fun finishing touch to her look. Would you wear them? If so, the designer “Indies” style is available at neimanmarcus.com for $995.

Our Look of the Day top picks this week were all about black, white, and a pop of red (or a combination or all three!). The five that topped our list were: Kristen Stewart in a black-and-white Balenciaga runway look, accessorized with a Cartier bracelet and Christian Louboutin heels, Marion Cotillard in a two-tone high-low Christian Dior gown, Taylor Swift in a retro red dress, Cameron Diaz in a pretty satin Stella McCartney number, and Kate Middleton in a black-and-white lace Temperley repeat, which she transformed with a bright red Alexander McQueen clutch. Which one is your favorite? Tell us by voting in the poll below!
Martha Stewart is crafty—we all know this thanks to her billion-dollar empire—and she extends that philosophy to the red soles on the bottoms of her Christian Louboutin heels. “See the soles? I paint them black,” Stewart told InStyle.com of the metallic pumps that accessorized her Ralph Rucci cape and Vince leather trousers at last night’s American Made Awards, which honored small business entrepreneurs. “I don’t like them red, even though they’re his trademark. But he doesn’t mind. He said it’s okay if I do that—I asked him!” We’re happy to hear the French shoemaker gave her exclusive permission, especially since he’s so picky about his trademark-protected red soles. (In fact, Yves Saint Laurent just withdrew its claims against Louboutin over copyrighting the red bottoms.) Perhaps her personal touch is ahead of the curve!

Marchesa’s rich, intricately detailed spring collection, inspired by India, offered up one red carpet-worthy stunner after the next. There were sari-draped dresses, jeweled cocktail numbers, and even a neon-embroidered gown. For daytime, the designers showed cropped lace pants paired with coordinating tunics. Sparkle dripped down everything, from gowns, pants, and handbags to the standout Christian Louboutin shoes. See our favorite looks in the gallery!

Viva la red! The U.S. Court of Appeals in Manhattan has ruled that Christian Louboutin has exclusive rights to the contrasting red sole the French designer is so famous for, according to the LA Times. The debate came about after Yves Saint Laurent put out a shoe with a red bottom and ruffled Louboutin’s rose-tinged feathers. “We hold that the lacquered red outsole, as applied to a shoe with an ‘upper’ of a different color, has ‘come to identify and distinguish’ the Louboutin brand and is therefore a distinctive symbol that qualifies for trademark protection,” the court said. That means that no one but Louboutin can sell any shoe with a red sole and different-colored upper. What a win!
