It Takes Two to Spice Up a Red Carpet: Our Favorite Couples Looks of the Week (Including, Yes, the McConaugheys)

Oct/24/2014 at 10:00 AM ET

It’s pretty much standard practice at peoplestylewatch.com to basically ignore the man on the fashionable female star’s arm and focus on the fabulous dress and amazing jewelry (have you seen Last Night’s Look?). But three photos came across our desks this week that made leaving out the guy practically unlawful. The ladies looked beautiful on their own per usual, but the addition of their dapper dudes’ digs (and even matching facial expressions!) made these ensembles doubly sweet.

Camila Alves-McConaughey and Matthew McConaughey: Alves has long been a master of creating looks that correlate with her husband’s (before the Oscars she said that she didn’t want to wear a super show-stopping gown because she wasn’t a nominee) without feeling like she’s playing second fiddle. At the American Cinematheque Awards in Beverly Hills, McConaughey was being honored, and she picked a Dolce & Gabbana gown which showed no skin, yet was still slinky and sexy. McConaughey, who is an ambassador for the line, opted for one of their tuxes with a velvet blazer with satin lapels .

Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz: When some pregnant ladies hit the red carpet, it’s all about showing off the bump. But for the Angel Ball at Cipriani Wall Street in N.Y.C., Keys decided to keep the focus on her accessories and her beauty look: Her high-neck black gown stood out thanks to a dramatic statement necklace and she tried a playful yet glamorous winged eyeliner. Like his wife, Swizz  chose to make his neck the focal point of his seemingly classic tux look, ditching a bow tie in favor of  graphic black accents on his collar. Keys referenced their adorableness at the event on Instagram, writing, “I love how we flow! Natural & simple.”

Olivia Palermo and Johannes Huebl: Their picture-perfect wedding was just one of many examples of just how well this couple cleans up. More than one editor here screen-grabbed this photo of their casual but polished looks for the Ghurka Woman handbag launch in N.Y.C. to send to our significant others. Note to guys: We already know what to wear for fall (thanks to Olivia on more than one occasion), but this is how you should be dressing.

Tell us: Do you coordinate looks with your boo? Which couples’ style is your favorite?

Alicia Keys on Being the Face of a Fragrance - and How Motherhood Changed Her Mane Game

Sep/03/2014 at 05:27 PM ET

Alicia Keys isn’t afraid of a fashion or beauty risk. How do we know? Well, we’ve been checking out her bold style on the red carpet for years — and she told us so during a one-on-one interview while promoting Givenchy’s new fragrance. The collaboration was a natural fit for Keys, who’s been friends with Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci for years, and who dressed her in a stunning golden gown for the ad shoot. Below, check out what the soon-to-be mom of two, 33, told us about her “Dahlia Divin” collaboration.

Jumpsuits Three Ways: How to Try the Trend, From Casual to Dressy

Apr/08/2014 at 01:54 PM ET

How to wear jumpsuitsX17 Online; FameFlynet; WireImage

If you’ve been avoiding the jumpsuit trend for the past year or so, it may be time to cave. The one-piece look shows no signs of showing down — in the last five days alone, seven stars (Jennifer Garner, Busy Philipps, Rosario Dawson, Coco Rocha and the three lovely ladies above) have all worn one.

But not all jumpsuits are alike. Just like dresses, they range in style from halter to strapless to one-shoulder, beachy to glam, print, solid, denim, silk … you get the idea. So we rounded up three looks in ascending order of fanciness to inspire you to try the trend — or to give you some fresh ideas in case you’re already obsessed.

RELATED PHOTOS: Vote on these trends — Obsessed or Hot Mess?

From left, Naomi Watts wears a Splendid chambray jumpsuit with white Yosi Samra sandals, a much-loved straw hat and shades. This look is perfect for a relaxed weekend of shopping or outdoor picnicking and can be warmed up a bit with a boyfriend cardigan if you’re taking it from day to night.

Selena Gomez (center) chooses a relaxed Ella Moss jumpsuit, but gives it extra style oomph thanks to some chunky neutral sandals, a jean jacket draped over her shoulders and big, loose waves. And finally, Alicia Keys goes glam in her Diane von Furstenberg azure one-piece, which is incredibly easy and chic to throw on with print heels and a red lip.

Which way would you wear a jumpsuit? Are you ready to try this trend or still holding out? Tell us in the comments!

Alicia Keys, Pink and Paula Patton Prove Fauxhawks Rock at the Grammys

We’re used to seeing Alicia Keys and Pink rocking pretty bold hairstyles, but it looks like Paula Patton is also jumping on the fauxhawk bandwagon for this year’s Grammy Awards.

While Keys and Pink played up their shaved sides with teased-up pompadours, Patton slicked back her long locks and added height to the front to give the effect of the punk-inspired ‘do. It showed off the out-there angry-lion bodice of her Nicolas Jebran Haute Couture gown, while Keys and Pink showcased their fabulous bods in simpler designs.

We’re loving all three interpretations — the gravity-defying hairstyle isn’t easy to pull off, but we say they all nailed it.

What did you think of their rocker-style manes?

Three Hair Moments We Must Discuss, Courtesy of L.C., Alicia and Mia

Before New York Fashion Week begins in earnest and we find ourselves buried in everything models, runways and spring styles, we’ve got to get a few things out of the way. Namely, a discussion of these three hair updates on three of our favorite stars.

Lauren Conrad is apparently following Michelle Obama‘s bangs playbook. She cut them in May, but was already slicking them back by June, and just a few months later it looks like she’s over them entirely. She combed them to the side for a Malibu event last week and appears to be ready to return to the all-one-length, sideswept waves she’s had for years.

3 Trends Spotted at the Met Gala: Spikes, Gloves & Punktastic Hair Color

May/07/2013 at 09:00 AM ET

After you’ve clicked through all the amazing (we use that word in a good and bad way) looks stars wore to the annual Met Ball, scroll down to see the punk-ish style themes that kept popping up on the red carpet.

SPIKES: There was perhaps no trend more ubiquitous than these bad boys. Jessica Alba (carrying a Christian Louboutin clutch) and Cameron Diaz (in a golden belt) looked ready to skewer vegetables for a barbecue, while Cara Delevingne reminds us of a sexy porcupine in her sharply studded Burberry gown.

GLOVES: Unlike those spikes, we never could have predicted the presence of these ladylike accessories at Fashion Prom for Punks. But Kerry Washington and Beyoncé wore them with their gowns. And then there was Kim Kardashian, who wore gloves attached to her dress and in the same print.

PUNK HAIR COLOR: Lily Collins (rocking blue streaks), Diane Kruger (who dip-dyed her ponytail pink) and Alicia Keys (with red highlights) are giving us flashbacks to the Manic Panic-fueled days of middle school. Wonder if any of them, including Kerry Washington with her purple-ish mane, will keep the color after the Ball has ended.

Which of these trends would you consider trying?
