Want to bring back the ’90s? You better start saving. Because if you do things the Hollywood way, it’s going to cost you.
First up: This $95 (no, that’s not a typo) scrunchie by celeb-loved brand Missoni. We used to buy Goody hair ties by the pack (for under $10), but if you really want to add some high-fashion oomph to your hair accessories collection you might want to splurge on the label’s tri-color design. (It’s only a matter of days before someone like Kourtney Kardashian steps out sporting it.)

If there is one thing we love about holiday weekends (aside from the parties and food), it’s the roundups. So we couldn’t let this day go by without pulling together some of most memorable looks from the past three months. (And yes, we hope you are reading this on the beach right now!)

There are some trends we were so sure would never come back, like neon crushed velour and polyester floral print bell-bottoms. And until recently, we were pretty sure we could add overalls to that list.
But now that we’ve seen the style on some of Hollywood’s most trendsetting stars, we are starting to come to the realization that we may have discarded our pair from sixth grade a little too hastily.
For starters, her coverup is much more stylish than the tees we tend to reach for. In fact, her pretty printed shirtdress did double duty as her travel outfit — after disembarking from her private plane in Corsica, she went straight for a stroll on the beach, then unbuttoned the dress to reveal a chic maroon two-piece with a baroque print. She accessorized her outfit with a $24 pair of Havaianas and a crisp Panama hat.
Then for a picnic lunch aboard a boat, the actress topped a high-waisted pair of red shorts and a black tee with a killer $2,865 Balenciaga quilted leather jacket. It’s hardly what we’d wear to protect ourselves from sea spray and bread crumbs (we’d save ours only for fancy nights out with 0% chance of rain!) but we also didn’t get to recycle custom Chanel for our wedding.

Rather than wearing an over-the-top ballgown or something straight from the Chanel runway, the star appeared to have recycled a blush pink Chanel number, which she last wore in 2008, for the intimate ceremony in Mazan, France.
That’s not to say, of course, that it was just any old dress she pulled out of her closet. Everything from her matching flats to the coordinating classic jacket was specifically designed by Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld for Knightley, a rep for Chanel confirms, adding that the dress is haute couture.
The dress bore a striking resemblance to one that she’d worn previously with black tights and pumps for a pre-BAFTA party in 2009, though we have to say we love her carefree styling for her wedding day even better.

Here comes the bride, all dressed in custom Chanel!
That’s something not many brides hear on their wedding day (Drew Barrymore excluded), but we’re betting that Keira Knightley‘s going to be in a just-for-her Karl Lagerfeld creation for her wedding to James Righton, rumored to be this weekend.
Though details on the event are very hush-hush (all we know is that Knightley and Righton reunited at the Nice, France airport, and the ceremony is reportedly at or near her French country home), it’s a fairly safe bet that Knightley will be in Chanel. She’s long worn the design house’s ethereal attire, been the face of the Coco Mademoiselle fragrance and even played the role of Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel in a Lagerfeld-directed short.
So even though we suspect the fashionable star will have had a hand in the design, we couldn’t help but pick three ivory numbers from Lagerfeld’s latest couture show for Chanel. Each dress has elements that remind us of Knightley’s style (from showing off her elegant shoulders to the feminine, romantic details) — but we think the perfect dress for her would be a mix of all three looks.
But since we aren’t being consulted, we’ll ask you: Which of these three Chanel dresses is best for Knightley’s big day?
