Get excited: We have our first Fashion Faceoff of the Royal Tour. The white Zimmermann dress Duchess Catherine wore for a busy day of events Friday — including a stop at the Royal Easter Show and a trip to Sydney, Australia’s famed Manly Beach — has also been spotted on a big time Hollywood A-lister.

The eyelet “Roamer Day” frock is from the Australian label’s Summer 2014 collection, and Aussie actress Naomi Watts wore the exact same design in a recent ad campaign for Jacobs Creek Wine. See the shot below. Read More

Jumpsuits Three Ways: How to Try the Trend, From Casual to Dressy

If you’ve been avoiding the jumpsuit trend for the past year or so, it may be time to cave. The one-piece look shows no signs of showing down — in the last five days alone, seven stars (Jennifer Garner, Busy Philipps, Rosario Dawson, Coco Rocha and the three lovely ladies above) have all worn one.

But not all jumpsuits are alike. Just like dresses, they range in style from halter to strapless to one-shoulder, beachy to glam, print, solid, denim, silk … you get the idea. So we rounded up three looks in ascending order of fanciness to inspire you to try the trend — or to give you some fresh ideas in case you’re already obsessed.

From left, Naomi Watts wears a Splendid chambray jumpsuit with white Yosi Samra sandals, a much-loved straw hat and shades. This look is perfect for a relaxed weekend of shopping or outdoor picnicking and can be warmed up a bit with a boyfriend cardigan if you’re taking it from day to night.

Selena Gomez (center) chooses a relaxed Ella Moss jumpsuit, but gives it extra style oomph thanks to some chunky neutral sandals, a jean jacket draped over her shoulders and big, loose waves. And finally, Alicia Keys goes glam in her Diane von Furstenberg azure one-piece, which is incredibly easy and chic to throw on with print heels and a red lip.

Which way would you wear a jumpsuit? Are you ready to try this trend or still holding out? Tell us in the comments!

Found: The Perfect White Skinnies and the Perfect White Boyfriend Jeans

Apr/07/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

Celebs like Jessica Alba, Naomi Watts and Kim Kardashian love the brand behind the denim in the below video and we’re guessing it’s because their jeans are flattering, smooth everything out, retain their shape (no saggy knees and butt!) and look good on just about every body type. Style editors love these two styles of white jeans for all of those reasons and one more: They’re really affordable. Check them out in action and be sure to use our exclusive discounts — listed below — to get the price down even more and to nab free shipping.

In the past, trying on white jeans has been known to send this particular editor into a downward spiral in the dressing room. But slipping into these two pairs, the boyfriend and the skinny, was a refreshingly positive try-on experience. They’re smoothing and sort of suck everything in, which is just what you want out of a pair of light denim. And they’re not see-through so you don’t have to worry about wearing them with a long top or putting a lot of thought into the color of your underwear.

If you’re a first-time Joyus shopper, be sure to enter PEOPLE10 for an extra 10% off (and you’ll get free shipping, too).

Happy shopping (and happy spring aka the start of white jeans season)!

Oscars Gown Showdown: Naomi Watts vs. Anne Hathaway -- Pick Your Favorite!

The Showdown: Naomi Watts in 2013 vs. Anne Hathaway in 2009
The Editor’s Pick: Anne Hathaway
Who Made the Call?: Brittany Talarico, Associate Style Editor
Why She Chose It:
Disclaimer: This decision was almost as difficult as picking out my wedding dress. Okay, maybe not quite as difficult, but just know I took it very seriously. So before you Hath-a-hate all over my choice, hear me out. Yes, both actresses are stunning in their Armani Privé designs. Yes, both have the high-shine, metallic thing going on. And yes, both look out of this world. But Anne has something Naomi doesn’t have: vintage appeal.

Check out the full Oscars Gown Showdown bracket here!

The circular paillettes, pearly iridescent color and the mermaid silhouette are just so Old Hollywood. There’s something about the gown that feels really timeless and special and makes it impossible to divert your gaze. (When the actress walked across the carpet — watch here — I almost felt as if she were floating. (And for the record, I don’t think she’s ever smiled so big.) Plus, the Swarovski crystal detailing on the bodice perfectly matches her subtle Cartier jewels.

Naomi’s dress, while gorgeous, has a much more trend-focused feel. It’s the kind of thing I love now, but I could see myself being not quite as enamored of in a couple years. It just doesn’t have the style staying power of Anne’s strapless design. (That said, if we were weighing in on the Best Oscars Gown Neckline, I’d be casting a different vote.)

Voting is now closed but click here to see who came out on top — and to weigh in on today’s matchup: Michelle Williams vs. Keira Knightley!

Who needs a stylist when you already have a team of super-adorable fashion critics living in-house? What Naomi Watts‘s style squad lacks in height, they make up for in honesty.

“When I get ready for a premiere I ask my sons which dress do they like just for fun and they often say, ‘No, I don’t like that dress,’” Watts, 45, told PEOPLE at the U.S. premiere of Diana in New York on Wednesday. “Kids don’t filter. So it’s always a good way to get the truth.”

And it looks like the actress’s boys Sasha, 6, and Kai, 4, provide sound advice. They gave Mom the stamp of approval on the floral midnight-blue Michael Kors gown she donned at the Entertainment One and Cinema Society screening of her anticipated royal biopic. (And her sons were right: The floral design is also getting the seal of approval from PEOPLE readers.)

Feeling Bold? Here Are Three Slightly Surprising Looks to Wear To the Beach

Jul/09/2013 at 09:00 AM ET

Quick question: What do you wear to the beach? A cute sundress? An old tee and cutoffs? Maybe if you’re feeling saucy, a backless maxi dress?

Well, Katy Perry, Rihanna and Naomi Watts have moved past those basics and on to a more advanced level of summer styling, all wearing tricky looks for their beach trips over the past few days. (So much for easy breezy beachwear, huh?)

If Perry wanted to cycle around N.Y.’s East Hampton unnoticed, she may not have gotten her wish in this head-turning Rodebjer look, comprised of billowing pants and a tied-up top in an insect print, plus striped Illesteva sunglasses and a tied-up head scarf.
