The Rise of Ruffles: Does This Hot Trend Give You a Frill?

If you liked the exaggerated-hip dresses we were abuzz about earlier this week, then you might be a fan of this equally bold look seen on Mischa Barton, Kelly Osbourne and Elizabeth Olsen. Feast your eyes, ladies: Frilly, ruffled necklines are the latest trend to hit Hollywood.

To start small, take a cue from Mischa in her cream high-necked dress with matching pleated sleeves. The look is fresh to try out in front of girl friends, but also has man repeller written all over it, so beware of breaking this style out in front of dudes.

For those who can handle a bit more flounce, bump up to Kelly’s white ruffle front. She clearly knows black-and-white is a go-to trend for spring.

And if you really want to flex your right to wear neck volume, go all out like Elizabeth. The youngest Olsen sister makes a major statement in a black embellished top and skirt from the Chloé Spring 2013 collection.

Celebs Can't Wait 'Til Sunday to Get Prabal Gurung for Target, Either

Normally when we’re envious of a celeb’s wardrobe, it’s because they’ve got a closet full of pricey pumps or the It Bag that we won’t be able to afford no matter how many pennies we pinch. But in the case of Zoë Saldana, Elizabeth Olsen and Rashida Jones, it’s because they’re the first stars to step out in the covetable Prabal Gurung for Target collection — three days before it hits stores.

Gurung’s longtime fan Saldana was spotted in L.A. wearing a $29.99 sweatshirt from the collection. That sweatshirt was one of the first things to sell out at an N.Y.C. shopping preview event (attended by Olsen in a $39.99 dress and Jones in a $34.99 blouse from the collection) that was packed with VIPs clamoring to go on the indoor carnival rides, get a glimpse of Ne-Yo and, yes, get first dibs on clothes from the line.

The Week's Best Dressed Star: Elizabeth Olsen

It takes one seriously killer dress to trump the Duchess of Cambridge in the fashion department. But Elizabeth Olsen did just that this week.

The actress stepped out in a pale gray-and-pink striped leather Dior design Monday night at the Liberal Arts screening in New York City. She accessorized with olive-green sandals, Joan Hornig earrings and rings by Melinda Maria and J/Hadley.

Her look was so chic that 13,000 PEOPLE StyleWatch readers gave it top honors over Kate’s purple-print Prabal Gurung sheath worn to a Jubilee tour event in Singapore.

And though the young star has proven she has a great sense of style, don’t expect a fashion line from her anytime soon.

“I would never want the responsibility of putting stuff out there for other people,” she tells PEOPLE. “I think it’s the most brutal business that exists.”

Elziabeth Olsen: I'm 'Never' Going to Become a Designer

Elizabeth Olsen is only making time for one show this Fashion Week — can you guess whose it is?

“I won’t be doing too much,” she told PEOPLE Wednesday night at the launch of Yoko Ono’s Swarovski collection in New York City. “But I’m obviously going to go to The Row show.”

Though she has an in with the designers — big sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley — she still has a hard time deciding what to wear. “It’s funny because [The Row] is more casual, but it makes me even more anxious because I’m the sister.”

Luckily, she has a closet full of chic threads. “I’ve been wearing [my sisters’] hand-me-downs and designs since I was 5,” she shared.

Olsen has come into her own as a burgeoning style icon in the past year, stunning on red carpets and at film festivals all over the country. And though she’s happy to play dress-up, she doesn’t have any design aspirations.

“I would never want the responsibility of putting stuff out there for other people,” she admitted. “I think it’s the most brutal business that exists.”
