Have some extra cash to burn? You might want to join this bevy of fashion-forward beauties and splurge on their fall-ready footwear.
We didn’t think it was possible, but Rihanna managed to out RiRi herself! The fashion and beauty risk-taker (whose latest style résumé add was bringing back the rattail) got our attention when she hit the red carpet with a bold-blue hue on her pout at a photo call for her new River Island collection. And if you thought the whole super-dark lipstick trend was crazy, we’re really curious to see how you feel about this shade. Would you wear a color like the singer or is it too over-the-top for you? Vote in the poll below and sound off in the comments for a chance to be featured in our December issue!

When Kim Kardashian began dating Kanye West, one of the things she got (well, besides a finalized divorce and a new baby) was a whole new wardrobe. West gave her a major closet makeover, and, for better or for worse, she’s really stuck by his fashion guidance and leveraged her haute new relationship into collaborations with big-name designers.
And since their daughter North is BFFs with sister Kourtney’s daughter Penelope, we can’t help but wonder if Kanye’s imparting now his style wisdom to a new pupil: Kim’s eldest sis. Typically the least adventurous of the Kardashian clan, Kourtney has been spotted out lately in some truly head-turning styles that seem to have Kanye’s calling card attached.

We usually can’t get enough of Kerry Washington’s style (seriously we’d love to raid her closet … plus, get our hands on anything from Olivia Pope’s wardrobe), but her colorful lip-printed Stella McCartney mini has editors divided.
The Scandal star’s look has sexy elements (like that short hemline). It also features some bling details: Hello, rhinestone appliques.
Would you wear a cocktail dress like Washington’s or is it to over-the-top for you? Vote in the poll below and elaborate in the comments if you’d like. Then check out our November issue to see how other StyleWatchers answered!

Continuing our weeklong theme of ’90s trend resurgence, we’d like to inform you that logo tees are back in a big way. But unlike the Abercrombie & Fitch-emblazoned tops you remember, stars are loving comfy, casual tees that poke fun at brand-name tops.
Clockwise from top left, check out Beyoncé in her “Name Brand” tank, Jordin Sparks perhaps paying tribute to boyfriend Jason DeRulo, Ashley Tisdale cheekily winking at Céline with a “Célfie” tee, Eva Longoria saying what the rest of us are thinking (“I’d rather be shopping!”) and Katy Perry riffing on the Christian Dior logo with a “Christian Death Metal” top.
We can always get behind making a statement with your clothing, but if you’re looking to really tap the celeb zeitgeist, you’ll nab a tee that’s a play on a designer logo. Shopjeen.com has a ton, from the Hermès logo altered to read “Homies” (owned by Khloé Kardashian), to a chic shout-out to Haider Ackermann, to a message to Saint Laurent many might agree with.
Tell us: Are you into wearing your heart on your tee? Would you wear a designer “knockoff” — and how would you style it?

Lily Collins may be a relative newcomer to the style scene, but we sure know a lot about her upper ab region already.
That’s because the fashionista (and The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones star) has been putting it on display every chance she gets, wearing an assortment of fabulous ab-displaying ensembles out and about to promote the film over the last few weeks. ‘

While Lady Gaga was recovering from hip surgery, we definitely noticed a void in our “crazy celebrity dressing” world that even Rihanna couldn’t fill. And the few times she stepped out, she looked almost like any other girl (that is, if any other girl wore a beehive or an exposed bra — she couldn’t be too pedestrian).
But at her first big return to the public eye at an event a few weeks ago, she looked totally unlike the Gaga we all know and love: No giant egg, no meat dress, not even a wacky face mask. In minimal makeup, a black dress and dark brown hair, she was almost unrecognizable, and we were wondering whether Lady Gaga was replaced for good by Laid-Back Gaga.
