Fashion Week is many things (including but not limited to: celebrity sightings, lust-worthy looks, drop-dead gorgeous models), but scary, it’s typically not. However, for the spring/summer 2014 shows, a handful of designers chose not to succumb to the usual springtime theme and instead sent down looks that readily call to mind zombie brides, extraterrestrial creatures and more. Thom Browne toyed with ‘insanity’ for his collection, furthering the idea with ashen makeup, smeared red lipstick and wildly teased whited-out hair. And thanks to the fine handiwork of makeup artist Pat McGrath, 15 eerily masked models took our breaths away at Givenchy. Just in time for Halloween, we rounded up 10 frighteningly fashionable looks plucked from the runways, including Comme des Garcons, Gareth Pugh and Louis Vuitton.

They may have a troubling on-screen mother-daughter relationship in Carrie, the film based on Stephen King’s horror tale, but off-screen, Julianne Moore and Chloe Moretz have shared some adorable red carpet moments! From celebrating Moore’s star ceremony on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, where they both wore Dolce & Gabbana dresses, to the red carpet for the world premiere of Carrie where they matched in long gowns (Moore chose a white draped Givenchy dress and Moretz went for a sheer forest-green Valentino dress) these two make a great pair. Click through our gallery to see more of Moore’s and Moretz’s cutest moments from the Carrie premieres, and be sure to catch the film in theaters nationwide right now!
It’s the cartoon sweatshirt everyone is talking about and wearing. Givenchy‘s black neoprene Bambi and female form print sweatshirt shirt has already been worn by Lily Collins, who styled it as a dress during the Givenchy spring/summer 2014 show in Paris, Amanda Seyfried modeled the sweater for the brand’s fall 2013 campaign, and now even Kanye West and Kim Kardashian‘s baby girl North has her own custom shirt featuring Disney’s most lovable white-tailed deer (see Kardashian’s Instagram above, inset). With fall officially here, sweatshirts are one of the season’s key pieces — even stylist Brad Goreski agrees — and now you can get your hands on the cartoon printed top, which can be yours for $1,375 at barneys.com. If that designer piece is out of your price range, shop more of our favorites — starting at $20.

With the hundreds of gowns that graced the Cannes Film Festival red carpet this year, which ones looked best? Who better to ask than celebrity celebrity stylist Elizabeth Stewart. “There are so many [I loved]!” she told InStyle.com at the P.S. ARTS Bag Lunch in Holmby Hills, California yesterday, an event she co-hosted to raise funds for the non-profit children’s arts education organization P.S. Arts. But when forced to narrow it down, she chose Freida Pinto’s coral Gucci gown and Jessica Chastain’s beaded violet Givenchy design. While Stewart put the stars in these two looks as their stylist, that’s not the only reason they rose to the top of her list. Here’s why:
“It was just so her,” Stewart explained. “This incredible bright coral with this cool belt and it was just a very Frieda moment.”
“The purple on Jessica was just so hard to pull off and she pulled it off so beautifully and it’s just this incredible, one of a kind, custom-made dress,” said Stewart. “She just looked perfect in it.”

The fashion world got punk’d last night when typically-prim stars like Allison Williams, Anne Hathaway, and Ginnifer Goodwin added edge to their style in honor of the Met Gala’s 2013 theme, Punk: Chaos to Couture. But nobody got into the spirit quite like the evening’s original rebels, Madonna and Debbie Harry. Madge kicked things off in true punk form pairing Givenchy‘s spikes, fishnet, and tartan (dog collar included!), while Harry kept things decidedly badass in draped chains, sheer panels, and black shades, naturally.
