Spotting a star in a perfectly styled leather jacket is nothing new — we have seven different options to inspire your own dressing right here. Fashion star Miranda Kerr took it one step further, giving the classic black pick the day off in favour of a bold tritone Acne version. With a statement topper like hers, it’s smart styling sense to keep the rest of the outfit simple. Miranda let hers take center stage by wearing dark jeans, a scarf, and pointy-toe ankle booties. The one other twist came courtesy of the denim shirt she knotted at her waist. Love the look? Shop it all here.

Lady Gaga Channels Another Blonde Bombshell For SNL

Is that you, Lady Gaga?
Is that you, Lady Gaga? We barely recognised the singer as she walked New York City in a fairly normal getup ahead of her Saturday Night Live performance. Usually her beauty looks are . . . er, entertaining. But her short, platinum blonde hair, pink lip stain, and winged eyeliner actually called to mind a modern Marilyn Monroe. Her feathered top only played up the vintage vibe. Do you miss Lady Gaga’s over-the-top style, or is this more demure, retro look one of your favourites?

Emma Stone’s Cool Girl Look You Can Try on Now

We’re eager to see Emma Stone any-time she makes an appearance, and this weekend she was out in LA for a photocall for latest film The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
We’re eager to see Emma Stone any-time she makes an appearance, and this weekend she was out in LA for a photocall for latest film The Amazing Spider-Man 2. She worked the camera’s with her on-screen and off-screen boyfriend Andrew Garfield. She smiled and hung out with fans in a casual cool look. She wore her shoulder-length locks in tousled waves with long side-swept bangs. She wore a red pair of sunglasses, so she kept her lips a natural pink hue. But we also spotted her sans the shades, and her eyes were dusted with brown eyeshadow for a polished daytime look.

Making the Cut: Do These Celebrities Look Better With Long or Short Hair?

All of us get scissor-happy at one time or other.
Making the Cut: Do These Celebrities Look Better With Long or Short Hair?

All of us get scissor-happy at one time or other. You see a great haircut on someone else and think, “I could totally pull that off!” Then, you’re in the hairdresser’s chair before you can say, “wrong face shape.” But not every dramatic cut goes terribly wrong. Some of us are born to wear our hair short, and plenty of celebrities have seen their careers skyrocket after chopping off their long locks.

Long hair will always be beautiful, but there are loads of great short ‘dos that prove there is more to life than Rapunzel lengths (at least for some of us). For a bit of haircut inspiration, take a look at our gallery of celebrities who’ve gone for the chop. We’ve decided which ones we think look best with long hair, those who rock a short cut, plus the lucky souls who can pull off any length they like.

Real Beauty: 5 Minutes With Fashion Illustrator, Kerrie Hess

When we first met Kerrie Hess, we walked away wishing we were artistically talented! Speaking about her collaboration with Shiseido, the beautiful blonde told us tales of late-night calls from the Whitehouse (yes, she drew for Michelle Obama), and high profile clients including Tiffany and Chanel. Le sigh. She’s also recently completed a collaboration with ModelCo, and we’re calling it the perfect Christmas present. After seeing her sumptuous illustrations earlier today, we’re now going inside her beauty cupboard.

Miranda Kerr and Little Flynn Model Matching Leather

Miranda Kerr coordinated with her cute little one, Flynn, during the pair’s Big Apple outing on Saturday.

Miranda Kerr coordinated with her cute little one, Flynn, during the pair’s Big Apple outing on Saturday. Sporting leather jackets, the sweet mother-son duo walked around NYC together following Miranda’s trip overseas. Last week, the model jetted to Japan for a fashionable bash to celebrate her Elle Japan cover with Michael Kors. The event took place on the same night as the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, and although the former Angel had been asked to walk in the show, she had to skip out because of her trip to Asia.

Although Miranda couldn’t make it, she showed her support for the rest of the Angels by posting a throwback picture on Instagram of herself with Doutzen Kroes and Alessandra Ambrosio. The photo triggered some backlash, though, with fans pointing out that the picture had been Photoshopped, but Miranda cleared the air with another Instagram post, explaining that she’d taken a screenshot from the Internet and hadn’t realized that it was an altered picture. She added, “Sorry for all the confusion and congratulations to the girls for such a great show!”

Flynn’s time with Miranda came after a fun day in the city with his dad, Orlando Bloom, on Friday. The actor carried Flynn on his shoulders, while the little one held on to a sword, and the two laughed together as they walked around NYC. Orlando has been busy on Broadway lately, taking the stage for Romeo and Juliet, but he enjoyed a solo night out last week when he attended the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards. Orlando and Miranda have both been busy with work since their breakup, but they’ve stayed on great terms. He opened up about their split late last month, saying, “We love each other. We’re a family and we’re going to be in each other’s lives for the rest of our lives.”
