Her character on Shameless may have a lot on her plate, but Emmy Rossum seemed to be holding herself together fashionably well while arriving on the set of the TV show in Chicago. The actress traded the just-got-out-of-bed look synonymous with early call times in favor of a casual yet chic Michael Stars cashmere blend sweater with quilted shoulder detail.
She paired her trendy topper with a leather mini by MiH, Chanel boots, and a Ralph Lauren Ricky bag, and added some shine with a duo of Tiffany Atlas necklaces. The playful knit comes in four gorgeous fall hues: black, blush, grape, and kalamata green. If you want to steal Rossum’s street style, you better act fast: The sweater is on sale now for $118 at michaelstars.com.

Emmy Rossum figured it out—the easiest way to get in on the leather look without actually buying leather (and potentially breaking the bank in the process) is slipping on a pair of coated jeans. Layered with a waxy sheen, the glossy surface conjures up the very same too-cool biker vibe that real leather pants evoke, but for a fraction of the cost. Unlike leather, varnished jeans are versatile, which means there’s a whole slew of options in a wide spectrum of colors, patterns and fabrics. Toughen up any topper with coated skinnies like Rossum did when she teamed her Old Navy “Rockstar” jeans in wine ($35; oldnavy.com) with a sweetly striped sweater. Get the look by shopping 14 of our favorite pairs that range from straight-up wax to coated brocade.

Emmy Rossum and Origins have joined forces for a cause! The beauty brand has teamed up with Charity: Water, a non-profit organization that provides water to people around the world who cannot easily access a clean source, and Rossum has jumped on board as the spokesperson. Last night at the New York City launch of the Origins SmartyPlants CC Cream ($35; origins.com), the star told us why she’s lending a hand. “Origins is a brand I’ve used and loved for years, and I love that they are involved with this amazing charity,” she told InStyle.com. “Eco-charity is also really big in my life, and it’s important for me to give back.” Rossum, whose do-good attitude is evident through her previous work with the Global Green charity, is urging fans of Origins to make a $30 donation to Charity: Water specific to Ethiopia, after she heard the story of one woman’s plight there. For the first 1,000 donors, the beauty brand will match the donation amount. “Charity: Water is an organization I’ve always admired,” she said, adding how she commends Origins for its matching policy. Each individual contribution will provide clean water to a person in Ethiopia, and you can even donate via Twitter — simply tag @charitywater on Twitter with the #donate and #smartyplants hashtags, and include the amount you’d like to give. Head over to charitywater.org for more information.
