At this point, a leather jacket (real or faux) has become such a staple that most StyleWatchers don’t even consider it a challenge. Leather pants? As basic as jeans for many fashionable ladies. Since leather is having such a major moment this fall, we’re always on the lookout for new and inspiring ways to wear it. Leave it to the fashionistas attending yesterday’s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund event to provide said inspiration.
Olivia Munn, Ali Larter, Camilla Belle and Anna Kendrick may have some of the most recognizable faces in the world — but we guarantee you haven’t seen them like this before. The four stars were the subjects of Urban Decay’s “Kisshibition” in N.Y.C. Wednesday night, in which their portraits were unveiled by artist Natalie Irish.

As if our Camilla Belle hair envy couldn’t get any stronger, the actress went ahead and chopped it all off into a summer-perfect cut.

With 1,440 looks walking down the runway at the Cotton 24-Hour Fashion Show this weekend, we were bound to see a ton of adorable outfits. And as it turns out, three of our faves were spotted on the celebrities attending the massive style event. (And two more were seen on our editors, Susan Kaufman and Kate Dimmock!)
First up was Camilla Belle, who has a knack for finding adorable dresses. After being snapped in a cute French Connection number ($198 here), she stepped out in a gorgeous print A-line dress, which she paired with blue Jimmy Choo wedges for some color and a leather jacket for a little edge.
If you haven’t yet heard, Shopbop got a facelift. And not only is the site rocking a brand new look, but it’s also calling on some of fashion’s biggest names to promote its new video game (yes, it has a video game). Shopbop’s version of Angry Birds — dubbed the “Launch Pad” — parodies the shopping site’s mission to “launch” fashion to the masses.
The game also shows a side to fashion that’s rarely seen: its sense of humor. To spread the word about the new venture, the site created hilarious vignettes starring Rachel Zoe, La La Anthony, Camilla Belle, stylist June Ambrose and designers Thakoon and Rachel Roy (among others). The first installment features designer Chris Benz and some unlikely Shopbop workers. Check it out above.
