jessica alba Proenza Schouler

After making an impact in a sequined feathered dress at the LA premiere of Valentine’s Day last month, we’re happy to see Jessica Alba returning to the edgy chicness of Proenza Schouler’s SS10 collection with this feisty number. Walking the red carpet at the Tribeca Film Festival in Hollywood, the actress confidently flaunted the frock’s digital print and paired it with some fabulously futuristic wedges, also by Proenza. Those bright blue nails are a majorly modern touch, too. Yep, we’re practically salivating!

With sunshine on the brain, we were inspired by the Alba yet again thanks to her floral frock layered under a denim jacket that she floated about in yesterday, reminding us of Lake Bell’s casual cool look at the weekend. And so it’s confirmed - this is exactly how we’ll be handling our transitional wardrobes now that spring has sprung. With a salute to the same look, Emmy Rossum attended the Esprit store opening in a sweetly stylish get-up, but it’s Jessica who tops this contest thanks to the grey denim and those awesome ankle boots with added attitude.

Participating in the crop top craze, Gisele Bundchen embraced the comeback with a glittering addition for a quirky twist on her standard jeans and vest combo. See, this tricky trend doesn’t have to equal terrifying belly-baring! AND, you don’t need a supermodel physique to pull it off either, as Erin Lucas proved when she joined Emmy at the Esprit opening. The City star exuded a tough yet alluring vibe by tastefully sporting hers with high-waisted trousers for minimum skin exposure, glammed up by a statement necklace. There’s another reason to put off going to the gym, then.

Oo blimey! Katy Perry has done it again and incorporated a touch of sauce into her attire, this time in the form of lace leggings. We’re loving this simple step towards '80s fashion but be careful to avoid Madonna over-kill or a scary goth effect. Our advice? Stay classy and bring a sophisticated spin by keeping the rest of your outfit smart and simple - a Chanel bag comes in pretty handy too... As for our finale, we're delighted to put forth yet another treat from Lady Gaga. Whipping up a wonderful ensemble including a fiercely studded Varsity jacket, La Ga similarly added a finishing touch to her outfit with a pair of statement-making animal print leggings. Well, that's one way to spice up the sports field...
