With New York Fashion Week, the Toronto Film Festival and the Venice Film Festival all overlapping, we admittedly had a difficult time choosing among all the celebrity looks this week! But if we have to pick, our favorite outfits—pulled from our Look of the Day include: Kristen Stewart‘s hand-beaded Zuhair Murad dress, Selena Gomez‘s embellished Atelier Versace gown, Taylor Swift‘s red printed dress with matching shoes and earrings, Blake Lively‘s embroidered Gucci cocktail mini, and Freida Pinto‘s midriff-baring Alexander McQueen stunner. Which one is your favorite? Vote in the poll below! More
Freida Pinto complemented her crisp look with a pair of Tory Burch sunglasses recently, and we loved how the see-through frames added a modern punch to the actress’s classic ensemble. Shop the pair for $149 at toryburch.com.

Freida Pinto worked a Contrarian New York top and skirt and Louboutin shoes at a dinner reception for Flaunt magazine’s new issue in Los Angeles, where she caught up with Dallas star Josh Henderson. The actress has been hard at work promoting her new film, Trishna, in theaters now. Click through the gallery to see more stars at last night’s hottest events.
Celebrities like Jennifer Morrison and Freida Pinto are keeping cool this summer with creative braids. Morrison wore a cute milkmaid updo at Comic Con in San Diego, while Pinto went low-key with a breezy side-slung plait at a taping for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Both looks work best with second-day strands, but if you’re working with clean hair, mist on a dry shampoo or texturizing spray to give the style extra hold. Choose bobby pins and ponytail holders in shades closest to your natural hair color to give the look a seamless, dressed-up appearance. For more great braid ideas, click through the gallery.
Our favorite outfits of this week—pulled from our Look of the Day top picks—are all about summer whites and structured silhouettes. Our top five include: Diane Kruger in a silver Azzedine Alaïa gown, Michelle Obama in a printed Chris Benz design, Jessica Biel in a full-skirted Christian Dior look, Freida Pinto in a bright Raoul dress, and Michelle Williams in a printed Giulietta shift.

Rachel Roy showed her support for Freida Pinto (both in Roy’s designs) at a screening for her new movie, Trishna, hosted by The Cinema Society with Circa & Rachel Roy at the IFC Center in New York City. “When I first saw Freida’s work I immediately brought my daughter to see it because there are very few reflections in the world at that level that look back at the reflection of yourself,” Roy told InStyle, on why she chose to co-host the event. “I call her the young Audrey Hepburn– she is just immaculate.” Click through the gallery to see more stars at last night’s hottest parties.

That’s a lot of leg! While showing skin has always been a red carpet staple, there’s one flash of flesh happening more often lately—sexy thigh-high slits. This look is one that spans all ages and body types, from Freida Pinto (in Michael Angel) to Jada Pinkett-Smith (in Versace). And Angelina Jolie broke new ground with her leg-popping pose at the Oscars in black velvet Versace, which set off an Internet meme of “Angie’s Right Leg”—complete with its own Twitter handle. So, what’s the appeal? “Thigh-high slits are instant sexy,” celebrity stylist Brad Goreski told InStyle.com. “You can be wearing something that is not overtly sexy, but once you get the element of surprise of seeing so much skin, then it’s definitely an immediate way to get a response.“ Julianne Hough, who recently revealed her dancer’s legs in a thigh-high Michael Kors gown, agreed. “The slit is sexy, and you’ve got to pull a little sex.” While balancing the rest with more demure accents (like Pinto’s peplum)—these girls get it just right! Click through the gallery to see dozens more designs featuring this ultimate sex factor.
