We are simply green with envy at the bold shades of jade, forest, and mint that have popped up on faces and nails at Paris Fashion Week. Celebrity makeup artist Pat McGrath kept things minimal at Stella McCartney, adding only a pop of color with Covergirl Queen Collection Vivid Impact Eye Liner in Jade ($7.50, covergirl.com) to the bottom waterline. Chanel took the trend upward with smoky pewter-mint lids and defined lashes, pairing the subtle hint of color with nude lips and pulled-back hair. At Kenzo, meanwhile, Manicurist Marian Newman painted nails in a myriad of MAC hues, including a pale shimmery jade, forest green, and bright mint. Want more runway inspiration?

Stella McCartney’s spring 2013 collection managed to combine drama and understatement with shapes (exaggerated shoulders, sheer panels, and extreme drop-waists) as statement-making as the colors (tangerine, cobalt, and kelly green). A master of bridging masculine with feminine, McCartney gave her cool-girl suiting extra impact by contrasting slouchy slacks against nipped-waist jackets, while her peek-a-boo sheaths are sure be favorites on red carpets. The finishing touch: sleek accessories, including coordinated Lucite sandals and bags ranging from geometric minaudieres to boxy totes. Check out our favorite looks in the gallery!
Stella McCartney just introduced “Stella,” a new line of lustworthy lingerie that’s both light in weight and light on the wallet. The collection features five bra shapes ranging from strapless to plunge and three bottoms, all made with lace, mesh, and satin fabrics meant to look invisible whether under a cocktail dress or a white T-shirt. The items also fall in line with the designer’s eco-friendly approach to design, as they are constructed entirely of recycled metal hardware and organic cotton. See our favorite styles in the gallery, and shop the collection—bras range from $55 to $65, while the underwear is $26 to $28—at net-a-porter.com and Stella McCartney stores this month.

After walking the Golden Globes red carpet in a Marchesa dress and Tabitha Simmons shoes, Best Supporting Actress nominee Shailene Woodley switched into something more relaxed for the InStyle/Warner Bros. after-party. “This is a super comfortable Stella McCartney dress, and I’m wearing my favorite flats ever,” the actress told InStyle.com, pointing to the five-finger Vibram shoes upon her feet. As for why she decided to change? “Who knows how many times I’ll be able to change into two different long dresses in one night, so why not!” Why not, indeed!
