The Coolest Coat in Hollywood Is Straight From 'Sesame Street'

Some stars check out the runways for style inspiration, others keep tabs on Pinterest, and still others look to a certain children’s TV show for fashion tips — at least if these celebs’ current outerwear of choice is any indication.

Kourtney Kardashian, Sarah Jessica Parker and Ellen Pompeo all recently stepped out in brightly colored alpaca coats, which definitely have a “Cookie Monster Couture” vibe.

The reality star (left) first wore the popular topper last month, when she chose a mint Skaist Taylor creation paired with an orange blouse and white pants. Then just last week, Parker tried the trend in the form of a blue double-breasted alpaca coat from NoNoo, plus a black plaid dress. And most recently, Pompeo donned a fuzzy ruby version with a white tee and leather skinnies on Monday night.

Stars Deliver a Healthy Dose of Vitamin C (for Chic!)

Don’t get us wrong: we appreciate a good neutral palette. But when 80% of this week’s “Most Loved Looks” are basic black-and-white, we start to doze off … and seeing a healthy dose of bold, bright winter citrus is as refreshing as a glass of lemonade in the summer.

So we’d like to extend extra credit to (from left) Beyoncé, Jennifer Lawrence and Amanda Seyfried for all opting to wear gorgeously juicy shades of orange in the last few days; they especially popped during a week when everyone played it safe.

Our favorite part is that all three stars showed that the tricky hue can look good against any skin tone, and can be appropriate everywhere from the office to a big night out. Beyoncé went sexy in a tomato Antonio Berardi sheath; Jennifer’s marigold Emilio Pucci was pretty and professional; and Amanda’s carrot-colored Roland Mouret number was dressy and glam. And all three women picked Jimmy Choo heels — maybe it’s the official shoe of fashion risk-takers?

Tell us: Are you inspired to brighten up your winter wardrobe?

Would You Join Hollywood's Latest Cape Crusaders?

The ridiculously cold weather in N.Y.C. this week has all the StyleWatch editors reaching for creative ways to keep warm, yet even the most fashion-forward of us have not taken the bold step of topping off our outfits with a cape. After seeing four stars in four days stepping out in these dramatic jackets, however, we’re thinking we may need to get on board this trend train.

First, Leslie Bibb bundled up at Sundance in a buttoned Coach number. Then Sophia Bush was spotted at an Inauguration party in a sweeping Mango cape. Kim Kardashian brought her usual sartorial drama in a cloak draped over her menswear ensemble at Paris Couture Week, and on Wednesday, Zooey Deschanel did her quirky-girl thing in a magenta Corey Lynn Calter creation.

Say you want to proclaim your love to the world, but your Facebook relationship status is hidden and a tattoo feels a little too permanent. What’s a smitten chick to do?

Well, you could take a cue from these stars, who have been paying tribute to the men in their lives via their jewelry. They certainly aren’t the first celebs to rock the “beau bling” trend, but their gold-plated baubles are among our faves.

Miley and Kim's Bra Tops: Hot or Not?

An intriguing mini-trend emerged this weekend, and it’s one we can definitively say we’re not on board with: bras as tops.

Miley Cyrus went for it first, wearing a teeny, plunging black corset with a printed skirt and red platforms on Friday for an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. She finished the look with minimal makeup and that buzzed-about hair.

Then Sunday, Kim Kardashian went out for dinner in Miami with boyfriend Kanye West, choosing a barely-there black top (not dissimilar from that risqué dress she wore last month), plus a surprisingly sheer gray skirt and black pumps.

We have lots of feelings about both of these ensembles — and we’re going to keep most of them to ourselves — but come on. These tops are not appropriate, nor are they particularly flattering. Miley and Kim both have gorgeous figures and access to the best designer finds out there, and they’re not doing themselves any favors in these tiny tops. But hey, if they were looking for publicity … Tell us: Are Miley and Kim’s bra tops hot or not?


Amanda Seyfried & Rihanna Try to Make This Beauty Trend a Thing: Would You Wear It?

What do Amanda Seyfried and Rihanna have in common? Until yesterday, we would have said nothing, but then we spotted the photo at left.

On Wednesday, Seyfried sat front row at the Miu Miu show during Paris Fashion Week wearing a super-bold purple lip color that reminded us of the lipstick shade we’ve seen on Rihanna.

Considering that Seyfried usually opts for a nude (or the occasional classic red) lip, we were surprised to see her in such a dramatic and out-there hue. It was so eye-catching, in fact, that it managed to take our attention away from her red pantsuit and plum platforms, not to mention the other starlets sitting with her. No easy feat.

Rihanna, seen left at the iHeart Radio Music Festival in September, has been rocking an eggplant pout for some time now. And unlike with Seyfried, we can’t say we were exactly surprised to see the singer take the beauty risk. (This is the woman who did rock dreadlocks and neon yellow talons, after all.)

Celeb Trend We Don't Recommend: Suit Jackets as Dresses

Yes, Miley Cyrus started it, but Kim Kardashian and Fergie are old enough to know better: a jacket is not a dress!

Both the reality starlet and the Black Eyed Peas singer stepped out last week wearing the same extra-long double-breasted black blazer with gold buttons and satin detail on the collar. Kardashian wore hers sans undershirt (and plus ankle-strap heels) to a Palladium Collection by Jacob & Co. launch party in N.Y.C., while Fergie tried the look with a T-shirt and pumps at a Case-Mate event in the Big Apple.

There’s an obvious reason as to why this look doesn’t quite work — the fact that pants aren’t involved — but it’s just not the most flattering garment we’ve ever seen, either. Both Kardashian and Fergie have fabulous figures that deserve to be well swathed — not covered in somewhat shapeless suit coats.

Don’t get us wrong — we’re all for menswear as womenswear — but maybe next time these stars want to take a risk, they can try tailored suits, sexy vests over low-cut blouses or edgy minis with masculine details. We know they can both do it. Tell us: Do you like Kardashian and Fergie in these suit coats? Would you ever try this look?
