But we have to say, as enthusiastic as we were about those partnerships, we’re even more excited about the news that Michelle Williams will be the new face of the brand that made her lovely Oscars look in 2012.
Hollywood's Hippy Chicks: Michelle Williams, Dianna Agron and More Dare to Wear Exaggerated-Hip Dresses

There’s been a lot of volume on the red carpet lately — and we’re not talking about hair. Some of Hollywood’s most stylish are bringing their fashion A-game (and taking a major risk) with sculptural-hip dresses.
Sophia Bush and Michelle Williams both recently stepped out in frocks by Katie Ermilio with sharp definition at the hips. Dianna Agron’s belted, red structured Louis Vuitton dress is both feminine and fashion-forward — we’d love to borrow it for an upcoming bridal shower.
Elle Fanning combined her ethereal looks with her style-setting instincts in a whimsical Lanvin gown with a voluminous skirt and black sash. And Emma Roberts styled her bell-shaped Honor skirt with a white blouse from the N.Y.C. based label.

This week’s hottest trends were all about lightening (and loosening) up for spring.
Up: Cute Jackets. What do you do, clothing-wise, on a spring day that ranges from 30° to 75° within a few hours? If you’re a celeb like, say, Michelle Williams (above left, in Kate Young for Target), January Jones, Nikki Reed or Olivia Palermo, you plan a whole outfit around your favorite blazer or duster. No more hiding them under a coat — now’s the time to show them off!

Since Michelle Williams announced that she’s growing out her pixie cut, we’ve been eagerly waiting to see how she’d deal with that growing-out phase that stars from Michelle Obama to Krysten Ritter have all dreaded.
And at the Kate Young for Target launch event last night, we had our answer: She’s handling it with attitude!
After a few years of going gamine, pairing her Mia Farrow-esque crop with ’60s-inspired trapeze dresses and boxy coats, the star seems to be adapting to her new, more punk-y mid-length look. Her deep-parted hair, worn combed over with pieces falling loose, looked fierce against her dotted sheer bodysuit and shorts from stylist Young’s Target collection.
If she’s having any grow-out angst, it didn’t show: Williams sported a wide smile at the launch, and rocked the heck out of her funky outfit.
Tell us: What do you think of her new look?

We’re not going to lie: if we were celebrities, we’d be wearing all the poshest, priciest things designers could offer us for our red carpet events. Which is why we have newfound appreciation for (from left) Eva Longoria, Jessica Alba and Michelle Williams, who each wore an under-$100 find on the red carpet this week.
Longoria swears she doesn’t care about fashion, but she sure fakes it well while visiting the New York Stock Exchange Tuesday in this cute trench-inspired H&M dress (only $79.95) cinched with a gold belt by the retailer ($17.95). She looks like a million bucks — quite a feat, considering she spent less than $100.
