How is it possible that a 13-year-old girl is our new style icon? That’s what we’re wondering as we ogle at pics of Super 8 star Elle Fanning, whose quirky yet chic fashion picks have made her a red carpet star in no time. She’s edgy yet age appropriate, with a bit of hippie California girl mixed in. The look works, she stands out amongst her peers over and over again, and not just because of her height and striking features (though they certainly help). Check out the actress’ style evolution over the years below. We’re particularly fond of her ever-growing eye wear collection. You?
Leave it to Gisele Bundchen to wear the most beautiful dress in the world to AFI’s 39th Annual Achievement Award honoring Morgan Freeman event last night. The sparkles! The silhouette! The train! The pink sash with a bow! Oh, don’t get us started on the pink sash with a bow. The entire outfit is classy and glamorous while still showing enough skin to satisfy those seeking a little sex appeal. In short, we’d like it shipped to our apartment stat. Gis, just get it dry cleaned and we’ll happily take it off your hands. Whaddaya say gurl? No? We’re annoying you? Okay, we’ll at least we tried.
Ke$ha wants you to lay off birds for their feathers, y’all. No joke! There’s a ton of stuff just laying out there that you can recycle into your accessories and still be animal friendly. Bones, feathers and the like. In a series of tweets, the singer asked her followers to start looking at more eco-friendly options, like she does! Ke$ha’s first tweet read, “im hearing about roosters that have been plucked and hurt or even killed for thier feathers…” This news seemed to distress her, so her next tweet followed with, “i’d love to give u guys my own personal feather contact. she’s totally animal friendly + recycles bones + feathers to make all my accessories.” And she really did!
The details are on Ke$ha’s twitter account, if you’d like to be birds of the same feather! Now, if you can get past all the “bones” spiel, it’s really quite nice of her to be so considerate to chickens and so on. But considering that she’s also — how to put this politely — weird, her next tweet made us shake our heads in plain bewilderment. Ke$ha tweeted, “i recycle bodyparts. im looking at all my crazybeautiful fans teeth right now!! i got a box of em and ive never been so excited !!!” Human teeth… yay?

A little after a month of tying the knot Prince (Duke) William and his Duchess
Kate Catherine (neé Middleton) have already been thrown into the official meet-and-greet cycle. First up, the royal couple met the Obamas where Catherine’s outfit was widely publicized and promptly sold out.
Next up was their first official black tie event together, something we were waiting for because we needed to see the Duchess go glam! William and Kate attended a charity dinner yesterday — the 10th Annual Absolute Return for Kids gala — at Kensington Palace. The 900 guests paid a cool $16,000 to attend the fancy dinner with the royal duo, while Mark Ronson feted them with music! Catherine did not disappoint with the outfit, shimmering in a Jenny Packham gown with lots of Swarovski crystal detailing, with her glossy hair down. Works for us!

For a second we were afraid we’d fallen asleep in a time machine (again) and woken up during the Royal wedding; that’s how elegant and classy Coco and Ice-T vow renewal photos look to us. The planet’s favorite couple renewed their vows this past Saturday at the W Hotel in Hollywood, celebrating their ten-year old marriage with a small group of loved ones. Surprisingly, Coco did not bear crawl in with the rings balanced on her famous ass, nor did any part her gown appear to be made of loose-weave fishnet (that we could tell; we’re no Vera Wang). Instead, she wore more fabric than her entire wardrobe spanning the last decade combined. This just goes to show every woman can chose to be a princess if she wants to be. And if a princess wants to have just a hint of areola exposed as she celebrates her special day, well, who are we to stop her?

We’re still high on our Kristen Stewart fashion freak out from tonight’s MTV Movie Awards. Our favorite of favorites dashed down the red carpet in a bold Balmain mini covered in sparkles and safety pins (stylist Tara Sen, we bow to you). Cue Carly Simon singing “Nobody Does It Better,” because truly, NO ONE DOES. Kristen kept her hair down and loose and her Christian Louboutin heels sky high. Do you love the actress’ look? Hit up our poll and tell us! And shout us out on Twitter too, we’ll be there all night: @thefablife.
The gorgeous Stacey Dash is probably best known for playing the fabulous fashionista Dionne Davenport in Clueless. But now she’s bringing her incredible looks (and incredible wardrobe!) to VH1′s new series, Single Ladies, which premiered this week. Stacey plays Val, a serial monogamist living in Atlanta who finds herself newly single and looking for real love. Do you honestly think we could pass up a chance to look back at her hottest outfits? As if! If there’s one thing we can say about the lovely starlet, she has never been “ensemble-y challenged.” Check out her twenty hottest looks in the gallery below! It’s, like, you know, totally cute.

Kristen Stewart is known for two things on the red carpet: 1) rocking fierce, flawless fashion and 2) slipping into something a little more comfortable before the night is over. Funny, we did the exact same thing on our prom night, except our dress was on sale at Express and not a show-stopping Proenza Schouler. The actress’ very real approach to dressing up—and down— is one of our favorite things about her. She’s publicly declared her hatred of heels and exchanges them for Chucks or Keds at just about every event (she even left the Oscars barefoot). There’s something very comforting about seeing a star deal with the discomfort of dressing up just like we do. She’s human! Isn’t that a novel thought?
Below are seven of Kristen’s best red carpet dress ups n’ dress downs. Each pic features her red carpet look and her much more casual post-carpet outfit. Is it weird that we often prefer the jeans and sneakers to the haute couture?
We have a rule around here at TheFABlife. We try to keep our photo galleries on the manageable side, because there’s only so much celebrity pic overdosing a person can stand before you start to wanna poke your eyes out or max our your credit card at Neiman’s (or both). But when it came to rounding up our favorite red carpet looks from the Cannes Film Festival, well, we kinda went into meltdown mode. There were just so many stunning gowns draped over so many stunning ladies we just.couldn’t.get.enough.
We went big — because we’re obviously not going home — and rounded up the 118 — YES, 118! — best gowns and dresses we could find. We tried to stop at 100 but we just couldn’t cut anyone out. That’s how glamorous these lades look! Mind you, this list does not even include the many gorgeous dresses shown off at the daily photocalls. Had we included those we’d be heading toward the 200 photo count, our 67th cup of coffee and our last nerve. We need to keep some semblance of sanity, right? (No? Okay.)
Slip into something more comfortable, grab a glass — or a bottle — of wine, put on some sexy tunes and dig into to the ultimate Cannes fashion photo gallery awaiting you below.
