It seems like Hollywood is experiencing a minimalist fashion moment right now. Solid colors, barely there makeup, and very few accessories are the name of the celebrity style game.

Sitting front row at the Zimmermann Spring 2015 collection presentation during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, Pretty Little Liars star Shay Mitchell joined the likes of Tia Mowry and Holland Roden in taking the less is more approach when it comes to her style.

Shay wore a black Zimmermann jumpsuit ($450) that featured a plunging neckline and cut-out just below the bustline. She paired the piece with metallic heels and a small red leather crossbody bag.

Who knew we should have been checking for Tia Mowry-Hardrict when it came to Hollywood fashionistas to watch?

She last popped up on our radar at the 2008 Teen Choice Awards where the Instant Mom actress wore a yellow and grey striped dress, showing hints of the style star she would later become by going an unexpected route and pairing the look with red heeled sandals.

Tia’s had her fair share of fashionable moments in the years following that Teen Choice Awards standout, but lately her red-carpet style has been elevated to an entirely new level.

At the International Fashion Film Awards Tia showcased a more sophisticated and fashion forward sense of style in a bell sleeved, deep v-neck dress from Australian fashion house Ellery.

Finished in a cream crepe fabric, the ‘Mayfair’ dress from Ellery is minimalistic in design yet makes quite the dramatic red-carpet statement with its exaggerated silhouette.

Once again Teen Wolf actress Holland Roden is proving why she’s one of the most stylish starlets to come out of Young Hollywood.

At Entertainment Weekly’s Annual Comic-Con Celebration Holland showed off her red-carpet fashion bona fides in a custom ‘prêt-à-couture’ jumpsuit from luxury brand Haney.

Haney offers select collection pieces that can then be customized and altered to suit a client’s specific style needs.

Holland chose wisely in having a Haney dress (either ‘The Liz’ or ‘The Marlien’) altered into a jumpsuit that’s very much on trend for someone with her Young Hollywood status.

Keeping her accessories to a bare minimum, Holland let a bold red lip, high ponytail, and gold minaudière take care of the details portion of her ensemble.

London based fashion label Three Floor has been steadily making waves in the celebrity fashion market, with Salem actress Ashley Madekwe having been an early celebrity adopter.

But as of late, the brand’s been on the receiving end of even more celebrity love including actress Jamie Chung, who wore a Three Floor dress to the Birchbox flagship store opening in New York.

Jamie donned the label’s ‘Attract’ dress ($100), a navy and black multi-texture dress that features a crossover neckline and a fit-and-flare skirt.

Bold red nail polish, and (seemingly every female celebrity’s favorite shoe) Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ heels ($395) completed Jamie’s look.

Of course of all the Hollywood starlets out there, Diane Kruger would be the one to possess the ability to effortlessly wear the intricately detailed patterns and motifs often found on Mary Katrantzou garments.

Diane’s always had a way with difficult to wear runway garments, in that she almost always manages to successfully pull off what most others couldn’t.


The actress hit it out of the style park once again in an embroidered mini dress from the Mary Katrantzou Fall 2014 collection at the premiere of FX’s ‘The Bridge’ in which Diane stars.

With such a focus pulling dress (each embroidered piece is a tiny bit of art for the eyes to feast on), Diane needed very little in the area of accessories.

A Charlotte Olympia ‘Pandora’ clutch ($845) and Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ heels in navy ($398) were the only additions to Diane’s look.

But she had a bit of cheeky fun with her hairstyle rocking a double braid ‘do that was red-carpet ready in the front, and after party in the back.

She might have passed on that Aaliyah biopic at Lifetime, but Zendaya Coleman is still a very busy young woman.

In the last year she’s released an album, danced with the stars, and headlined Disney Channel film Zapped. Plus she has a new show with the House of Mouse on deck, K.C. Undercover.

Like I said, Aaliyah movie or no, Zendaya’s a busy girl.

Despite the hectic schedule though, Zendaya found time to sit with Flaunt Magazine for an interview and editorial. Photographed by Frederic Auerbach and styled by Johnathan Lawhorne, with makeup by Kathy Jeung and hair by Larry Sims Zendaya models looks from designers including Dior, Miu Miu, and Louis Vuitton.

At 5’10” tall, if she didn’t have enough on her plate already, Zendaya might want to consider a professional career in modeling. Oh, wait. She’s the new face of Madonna and daughter Lola’s Material Girl line. Again, Zendaya’s got a lot on her plate.

Poised on the cusp of complete stardom, Zendaya’s Flaunt interview refreshingly proves that she’s as down to earth as ever.

When asked about her role models, the 17-year-old starlet had no problem telling the mag:

“Honestly role models will always be your parents. They are literally the role models. You learn from their mistakes, the things they teach you, right from wrong. I have a lot of older siblings too and it’s really nice that I have people that are a step between parents, the generation gap.”

And on that ever changing, yet always on point style of hers, Z says she’s about setting trends, not following them:

“I don’t even think I believe in trends, to be honest! I like being a trendsetter and finding new trends. When it comes to, “What’s the best color this season?” wear whatever color you want! Just because the leaves are changing doesn’t mean you have to!”

Head over to Flaunt to read Zendaya’s complete interview where among other things she discusses her music and her upcoming acting projects. In the meantime check out this behind the scenes video from Zendaya’s Flaunt editorial.

New mom Kerry Washington looked better than ever at the 2014 BET Awards in a summer ready Dolce & Gabbana floral frock ($2,445) that was a nice departure from the bodycon and barely there dresses found elsewhere on the event’s red-carpet.


Kerry’s one who typically goes bold with her red-carpet looks.

Remember that time she wore a crop top while six months pregnant?

She’s even had standout moments at past BET Awards. In 2011 she stunned in a chartreuse Michael Kors number.

So the Dolce & Gabbana look she wore to this year’s event was a relatively tame one for Mrs. Asomugha.

Kerry’s strapless Dolce & Gabbana dress featured the always classic fit-and-flare silhouette, and was finished in a floral motif silk brocade.

Keeping the accessories to a minimum, Kerry carried an Amanda Pearl clutch, donned a select choice of rings from Roseark, and wore white Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ heels ($612).

Post baby, Kerry Washington’s style has never been better, and I eagerly await her next red-carpet moment.

If ever there was a young Hollywood starlet born to bring one of Disney’s classic princesses to life, Elle Fanning is that girl.

The Maleficent actress, who plays Sleeping Beauty aka Princess Aurora in the film, looked every bit the part of a Disney Princess made real at the film’s Tokyo premiere in a dress from the Alexander McQueen Fall 2014 Collection.

Elle’s ethereal look is centered around her diaphanous McQueen frock, which features embroidered moons and stars throughout, Romantic period ‘Marie’ sleeves, and a whimsical feathered hemline.

A diva, and a diva in training both step out wearing the same all metallic everythang look courtesy of Gucci. Who rocks it best? Old school or new school?


Beyoncé, who’s never been one to shy away from a flashy ‘fit or two (on stage or off), donned her Gucci head-to-toe metallic ensemble during an outing to see A Raisin in the Sun on Broadway.

Bey wore an oversized lamé jacket and matching lamé wide-leg trousers ($2900) paired with classic heeled sandals.

Over four months ago, Zendaya was the first to rock the all metallic Gucci look during Grammy Awards weekend events.

Zendaya wore the same Gucci Resort 2014 ensemble that Beyoncé would eventually wear months later, except Zendaya took her styling direct from the runway.

As with the runway look, Zendaya paired her metallic blazer and slacks ($2900) with a matching loose fit tank. She even went so far as to add a pair of rose tinted aviator sunglasses just like the runway model.

Not to let the all metallic everythang party end there, Zendaya completed her outfit with a pair of matching metallic open toe booties.

By the very nature of being metallic lamé suits, Beyoncé and Zendaya’s Gucci ensembles are automatically attention grabbing. That said, which woman takes complete ownership of the outfit? Which woman wears the hell out of her suit, versus letting the suit wear her?

Who wears their metallic Gucci suit best?

  • Zendaya (87%, 20 Votes)
  • Beyoncé (13%, 3 Votes)

Who said rompers (or playsuits as they’ve come to be known) can’t be properly dressed up for date night or an after five event?


Belle leading lady Gugu Mbatha-Raw proved rompers can indeed be red-carpet worthy at the film’s London premiere.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw, who’s poised to become a big name in Hollywood, seized the opportunity to show off her fab gams at the London Belle premiere wearing a playsuit from the Martin Grant Spring 2013 collection.

With its origami detailing at the bust and full overskirt, Gugu’s playsuit is given the illusion of a chic little black dress, so it’s easy to see how she and her style team were able to transform the romper into a red-carpet look.

Carolina Bucci ‘Mirador’ drop earrings ($675) and Christian Louboutin ‘Follies’ lace pumps ($841) added chic finishing touches to Gugu’s ensemble.

To get Gugu’s look for less, try the above pictured ‘Adelyn’ peplum detail playsuit ($45) from Missguided. Featuring the same silhouette and even the same bustline detailing as Gugu’s Martin Grant piece, the ‘Adelyn’ playsuit is a great, lower end alternative.
