And Minka isn’t the first—stars like Katie Holmes, Jaclyn Smith, and Sarah Michelle Gellar have all taken turns as Jackie O. Click through to see them all.

Celebrities love Cushnie et Ochs! The Parsons-trained design team of Carly Cushnie and Michelle Ochs launched their sexy, body-con line after graduating in 2008, and quickly became industry darlings, winning the Ecco Domani Fashion Fund Award and becoming a finalist for the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s Fashion Fund Award. It’s no surprise then how the pair’s structured, lightweight creations have wooed stylish stars, including Olivia Wilde, Kerry Washington, Eva Longoria, First Lady Michelle Obama, and Malin Akerman, who stood out in a vivid red design at the InStyle Summer Soiree last week. “I’ve kind of fallen in love with Cushnie et Ochs lately,” Akerman told InStyle.com. “All their stuff is just really cool and sleek. I’m obsessed!” And the designers are thrilled: “Seeing stars in our clothes is amazing,” they told InStyle.com, noting that empowering women is their ultimate goal. “Yes, [our clothes] are sexy and body con, but as female designers we construct our clothes to really support women and allow them to feel confident and comfortable when wearing them.” Click through the gallery to see more celebrities who love Cushnie et Ochs, and then shop for your own pieces at shopbop.com and ssense.com.
Taylor Swift is a girl who knows what she likes: breakup anthems (like her most recent “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”), sequins (her stage looks are covered in ‘em), and, most of all, the color red. We’ve spotted her out in the hue many times, so while she says that she named her new album Red because of the “intense” emotions that inspired the album, we also think might have had something to do with her penchant for the passionate shade. So, in honor of her love for the color of love, click through the gallery to see Taylor’s best red looks.
Talk about ending the Olympics on a high note—The Spice Girls reunited for the Olympics Closing Ceremony last night! And their performances of “Wannabe” and “Spice Up Your Life” left us wanting more, more, more. “We did it!” Victoria Beckham—who looked more posh than ever—Tweeted to the rest of the group. “I love you girls so much!” We loved how they gave a modern revamp to their signature ‘90s looks, from Ginger Spice’s Union Jack dress to Sporty Spice’s athletic getup. (And Scary Spice Mel B loved her look so much, she wore it to the after parties!) Take a look back at each girl’s signature style, from ‘90s to now in the gallery.
