Grazia suggests approaching head-to-toe print with caution as it can be a tad much, but Penélope Cruz and Nicola Roberts prove that it can be done with their monochrome checks. While Claudia Schiffer definitely means business, going for a hint of the pattern in her fitted blazer, Penélope works a pencil skirt and jacket at the press conference for her new film, Broken Embraces, in New York. Meanwhile, Nicola shows off her fashion credentials with this casual mac as she visits The Mayfair Hotel. Very sophis, ladies!


Biker jackets

We’re all about biker chic these days. From leather jackets to stomping boots and distressed denim, it’s the perfect way to inject a bit of feist into your wardrobe. Jessica Alba and Nicky Hilton keep it simple in their fitted jackets with zip detailing, while Penélope Cruz looks every inch the leading lady at a screening of Broken Embraces with this grey jacket thrown over her silver gown.


Boots galore!

We reckon there aren’t many things more versatile than the ankle boot. High-heeled or flat, plain or embellished, you can wear them with virtually anything, et voilà, your look has added edge! Whitney Port’s brown ones almost have a pirate feel with the metal buckles, whereas Miss Friel opts for a harder biker style to contrast with her sheer feminine dress as she leaves the Theatre Royal Haymarket. And Rachel Bilson’s gone for complete contrast as she teams grey heeled boots with a bright yellow shirt dress.
