In time for the holiday season, celebrities took to decorative dress in this week’s Style Watch. Blake Lively in Marchesa and Reese Witherspoon in Diane von Furstenberg shared similar taste in floral appliqués, an element that made a broad splash down the bodices of their fitted frocks. Rooney Mara chose unwavering sophistication as she walked the red carpet of the 2013 Dubai International Film Festival in a stunning, statuesque Lanvin gown.
Meanwhile, celebrities like Diane Kruger and Nicole Richie demonstrated that elegance is always in order. In cinched-waist silhouettes, our stars shone with a feminine ferocity that put them ahead of the rest, whether they were embracing more avant-garde looks or taking the traditional route to red carpet style.
See all these looks and more in our gallery above.
