InStyle’s May cover girl, Emily Blunt wore a colorblocked Victoria Beckham dress to make an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night, but all eyes were on another outfit when she took the stage—the metallic Burberry Prosum ensemble she wore on May’s InStyle cover! “I never notice women’s clothes, but I love this outfit!” Leno told the actress. “You do? I was worried it was a bit space-agey!” Blunt responded in jest. Scroll down to watch the clip, and then pick up your own issue—or download it to your iPad, Nook, or Droid tablet—on newsstands now.

Inside the Party: Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kate Hudson, and More Toast to Tiffany & Co. Inside a 31-Foot Tall Tiffany Blue BoxApr 19, 2013 @ 1:15 pm
“It’s one of my more privileged nights,” Sarah Jessica Parker told InStyle.com as she entered the Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball, which took place inside a 31-foot-high Tiffany Blue Box covering The Rink at Rockefeller Center to celebrate the jewelry company’s new custom collection inspired by the Jazz Age. And she wasn’t the only one feeling privileged—while she had $497,500 worth of Tiffany jewels accessorizing her vintage Vicky Tiel design, other guests also dressed in Tiffany’s finest, including Kate Hudson (in Reem Acra), Michelle Williams, Jessica Biel, Carey Mulligan (in Victoria Beckham), and Gwyneth Paltrow (in Ralph Lauren). The gorgeous gals were just a few of the 400 guests who, once inside the blue box, were treated to a ’20s-style supper club—which brought the newly-unveiled Great Gatsby-inspired windows to life—complete with big-band jazz performances and a serenade by Smash star Megan Hilty, who fittingly performed the night’s anthem, “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend.” And anywhere you turned—Tiffany blue could be found. “I love the color, it’s one of my favorites,” Paltrow said of the celebrated hue of the evening. “It’s so optimistic and it’s perfect. I think it’s so beautiful.” Click the photo for more.
Every season, InStyle Fashion Director Cindy Weber Cleary picks out her favorite Fashion Week looks, and for the fall 2013 shows, she loved Victoria Beckham’s new lineup. “Victoria Beckham has come a long way from the sexy fitted dresses that established her as a designer,” says Weber Cleary. “The collection she showed included a wide range of great-looking daywear, including this sweater with a cobalt calf-hair front paired with a slim work-appropriate skirt.” Check back every day to see more of Cindy’s favorites.

With proud husband David sitting front row, Victoria Beckham showed a polished fall collection this morning filled with ultra-wearable pieces. Ever the proper English lady, the designer offered guests a hot cup of tea as they entered. The charm extended to the accessories, like sleek and wearable Manolo Blahnik kitten heels and boxy top-handle bags that were big enough for an iPad and a change of shoes. Despite a nod to mod—lucky for Beckham’s devoted fashion fans—the designer delivered her beloved body-conscious pieces, including a rounded shoulder dress with her signature perfectly-placed zipper running up the back. For evening, the designer showed a series of menswear-inspired separates, a chic alternative to the classic cocktail dress or gown. See our favorite looks in the gallery!

Victoria Beckham is re-releasing her favorites from the archives of her eponymous line! The collection, which she’s dubbed “Icon,” will include the most memorable from her designs both in their original forms and re-imagined in new colorways. “I introduced Icon in response to requests for designs from customers as far back as my first collection, and I wanted to find a way to offer them key dresses from the archive, but in newly reworked colours and fabrics,” Beckham said in a statement. “I am excited to revisit other archive designs as the Icon collection continues to grow.” Available exclusively on victoriabeckham.com starting next month, the collection includes seven dresses (starting at $1,600 each) from her very first spring 2009 season through present day.
