Congratulations, Pip Addis, you’re InStyle.com’s Reader of the Week! The Indiana, Pennsylvania resident brightened our day with a cheery daffodil-hued silhouette, a look inspired by a story on the color she saw in the April 2013 special color issue. “This jacket actually sat in my closet for years, until Color Crash Course: Daffodil helped me see it in an entirely new light,” she told InStyle.com. “I owe this color combination to the cute swatch ideas in the April issue. All the piece needed was a neutral khaki dress!” Check out more of her chic spring ensembles on her blog, Easy Outfits, by Pip.

It doesn’t get more glamorous than this at Cannes! The annual amfAR Cinema Against Aids Gala is traditionally the biggest red carpet event of the Cannes Film Festival, and the turnout at last night’s 20th anniversary of the event didn’t disappoint. Olivia Palermo (in Roberto Cavalli), Jessica Chastain (in Saint Laurent), Heidi Klum (in Marchesa), and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (in Dior), all came for the festivities to raise awareness and funds for amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, which is dedicated to research, prevention, and education for the disease. The night included dinner, dancing, and, as a special treat, a live fashion show sponsored by the World Gold Council’s LoveGold initiative where 38 models walked the runway in glittering gold designs for The Ultimate Gold Collection Fashion Show.

Exclusive Inside the Party: The Beverly Hilton Pool Relaunch With Lea Michele, Minka Kelly, and MoreMay 24, 2013 @ 11:30 am
Just in time for Memorial Day, the Beverly Hilton threw a pool party to celebrate the makeover and reopening of its famous Aqua Star Pool. The hotel enlisted the help of celeb stylist extraordinaire Estee Stanley to style the space with a retro Hollywood vibe, and she teamed up with DomaineHome.com and WhoWhatWear.com founders Hillary Kerr and Katherine Power to toast to the redesign by inviting all their star pals to come check it out. ”Things were freshened up,” Stanley said of upgrading the largest pool in Beverly Hills. “I wanted to keep it what it is, without making it too modern.” Lea Michele and Cat Deeley were among the A-listers present to take in the new setting, which includes avocado and lemon trees, plush white pool chairs, and a fire pit perfect for summer nights. And true to the nautical theme, Stanley even styled the entire pool staff in sailor-inspired navy and white Lacoste outfits. “It’s the best!” said attendee Sophia Bush, who posed with the newly-brunette Minka Kelly. “It’s like the chic-est afternoon pool party you’ve ever been to.” Click to get an inside look.
