Alexander Wang for H&M Debuts: Check Out the Sporty, Sexy Collection and the Celebs Who Stepped Out to See It!

Oct/17/2014 at 05:15 PM ET

Wondering how to set the fashion world abuzz? Take a celeb-loved designer of the moment, add an amazing price point and out comes a can’t-miss collection of high fashion for the masses! This time it’s Alexander Wang (who’s also the creative director at Balenciaga), who debuted Alexander Wang x H&M Thursday night in New York City. And even though we got a taste of the collection last month, when Rihanna sported a head-to-toe look from the line during New York Fashion Week, the reveal of all the looks was exciting, even if they’re not available until Nov. 6.

Celebs like Jessica Chastain, Kate Mara, Dakota Fanning and Solange Knowles (above) all showed their support for Wang and sat in the front row, along with Eddie Redmayne, Mary J. Blige and Justin Theroux (below), who was videotaping parts of the show on his iPhone. Wang kicked off the show, which took place at a track-and-field venue in uptown Manhattan, with a Matrix-like short film featuring models doing hardcore action moves, like high-speed snowboarding wearing his sports bras, leggings and swishy pants. Parkour performers rappelled from the ceiling and did flips off a trampoline in the center of the racetrack-inspired runway.

So even before the models started hitting the catwalk, it was clear: this 38-piece women’s collection and 23-piece men’s collection isn’t full of untouchable, runway-only pieces— it’s super-chic activewear. Note the photo below: Karlie Kloss in life preserver-type top, Tyson Beckford in a shorts-and-fitness-tape combo, and Joan Smalls in leggings and a sports bra (and an intricate fannypack/backpack contraption). Some of the most buzzed-about items at the show included the outerwear, like ultra-wearable utilitarian water-repellent parkas with molded hoods, oversized scuba moto jackets and quilted leather puffers.

And though wearing a holster over running shorts and a sports bra that reads “WANG” might not be for everyone, the prices sure are. Tanks run around $35, shorts and leggings will go for $60. Leather pieces, like slouchy pants and jackets will go for $349. Not down to commit to these statement pieces? Wang and H&M are also releasing a yoga mat, water bottle, sunglasses with an oversized head strap and swimming goggles.

In our weekly roundup of the looks that are gaining fashion ground (and the ones losing their style street cred), we saw lots of bright, vivid yellow dresses, pumps as icy as the polar vortex and a hemline that doesn’t seem to make the cut. Pun intended.

Jessica Chastain's Vogue Shoot Is Even More Artistic Than Usual

Nov/12/2013 at 02:38 PM ET

Jessica Chastain is so pretty, she oughta be in pictures. And we’re not just talking about the movies. For the December issue of Vogue, Annie Leibovitz shot the actress in a series of photographs inspired by works of art by Klimt, Magritte and van Gogh, among others — and the results are stunning (see two more photos below).

PHOTOS: More star style right this way!

And while she poses as famous portraits of historical beauties, the portrait that emerges of the star herself in the Vogue piece is of someone very private, quiet and shy. Of having to portray a seductive woman in a Robert De Niro-directed film, Chastain says, ““I did not feel like a beautiful woman that people would kill each other for. Jessica — who I am in my personal life — I’m very shy, I feel very awkward, I don’t feel like a femme fatale at all.”

Perhaps not, but in her spread, she certainly looks the part in this issue. To see more, check out Vogue.com or pick up the latest issue on stands November 19.

In our weekly search of what we’re seeing sizzle (and fizzle) on the red carpet, we saw a whole lotta spots, a wide range of fashion-forward clutches and denim cutoffs that were a bit too tattered for a formal affair.

Up: Spots: If Sarah Jessica Parker and Duchess Catherine are wearing spotted prints, it’s only a matter of time until the rest of Hollywood catches on. SJP stepped out in N.Y.C. wearing a black-and-white polka dot number, and Kate chose a spotted Hobbs coat dress for an event in London. Rashida Jones also had a spot-on moment in this black-and-white printed Proenza Schouler mini.
