The week only just ended, but we’re already looking back at what a colorful week our editors had! We posted snaps from Diane von Furstenberg‘s neon pink fall collection, Balenciaga’s green-tinged floral fragrance launch, and Daniel Vosovic‘s cool-girl presentation with pops of red. A bright Monday to Friday indeed! See more of this week’s best photos in the gallery, and stay up-to-date with all of our chic shots by following us at @instylemagazine on Instagram.
Rihanna‘s “Diamonds World Tour” launched Friday in Buffalo, New York—and to shine bright, she looked to Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci to create her opening looks! Tisci, who counts Rooney Mara, Mila Kunis, and Liv Tyler among his fans, designed a floor-length ruffled silk crepe cape (left), embellished with 3D collar embroidery, for the singer. When she drops that topper, it reveals three pieces underneath (right), including a parka printed with a silver target and stars on its back. “Rihanna represents what young and amazing means today. She is punk and talented. She offers intelligence, energy, and pure beauty,” Tisci said in a statement. “She is the face of her generation.” And that face gets the most special customization: the golden bullets on the cuff of her hood have “RiRi” inscribed on them, and her complete second look is covered in dozens of black Swarvoski crystals. “Like diamonds in the sky,” indeed. Check to see if Rihanna’s coming to a city near you on ticketmaster.com.

Anyone who considers florals too feminine, think again! For fall, Givenchy‘s Riccardo Tisci presented a bouquet of anything-but-precious designs that blended nature prints with tough leather and plaid. And there were more surprising pairings, like flowing maxiskirts layered with chunky knits. Though, nothing encapsulated the collection’s playful vibe quite like the quirky toppers, some of which featured Bambi cartoons. See our favorite looks in the gallery!
Paris Fashion Week is happening now, and we have your behind-the-scenes pass to all the best clothes, makeup, stars, and more that our editors spotted while enjoying the French capitol.

While some celebrities are ignoring the winter as if it didn’t even exist, plenty are welcoming it with open arms by bundling up in their best winter attire. Jessica Chastain (the woman of many coats) stepped out again in New York City wearing a Givenchy bag, black pea coat, and blue scarf while on her way to another performance of The Heiress on Broadway. Meanwhile, Glee star Lea Michele mixed seasons when she stepped out in Los Angeles wearing a coat and flip-flops.

When Les Miserables star Amanda Seyfried stopped on the red carpet to talk to fashion host Ryan Seacrest, she revealed a true red carpet rarity! “I get to keep it, apparently,” Seyfried said of her Givenchy gown. “I just learned that today.” Wow—some girls really have it all!

Kanye West surprised many at last night’s 12-12-12 Concert benefitting The Robin Hood Foundation’s Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund when he took the stage in a leather kilt (shown above, right). But the edgy Scottish-inspired look is nothing new for Yeezy! He’s worn the Givenchy skirt on a number of occasions, starting with his and Jay-Z’s tour last year to support their Watch The Throne album (above, left and center). And while some fans reacted to his kilt on Twitter and Facebook, the only one who really mattered loved it. “Awwwwwwww I’m so excited right now!!!!! He looks so cute!!” girlfriend Kim Kardashian Tweeted during the show.
