Sweet dancing feet
Beyonce owned the stage in Stuart Weitzman's Swoon pumps during her weekend shows at Revel in Atlantic City. That style is sold out, but step into the similar Platswoon heels. $315-$345 at Stuartweitzman.com
Gilt, meet Trina Turk
Taylor Swift and Eva Longoria love Trina Turk. And now, you can load up on the limited edition Trina Turk for Banana Republic curated capsule collection when the line premieres on Gilt.com Wednesday, but shop fast: the sale starts at 12 p.m. ET and only lasts 36 hours. Prices range from $34 for accessories to $150 for a tunic.
Get great 'Gatsby' garb
Director Baz Luhrman's trailer for The Great Gatsby oozes style. The film's out Dec. 25, but you can get cool gear now. The Great Gatsby (First Edition) blue T-shirt, $28. OOP x Mikey Burton: Gatsby white T-shirt, $28. At OutofPrintClothing.com
Blues with a feeling
Almost a year on the job, and she can still do no wrong. Duchess Kate rocked a picture-perfect blue Reiss belted dress while visiting a children's hospice on March 19 in Ipswich, England, and wowed with a short and sweet speech. Get a similar look with Milly's Joanna dress in cobalt. $425 at Piperlime.com
Boots made for kicking butt
As Katniss Everdeen in box office smash The Hunger Games, Jennifer Lawrence makes Survivor look like a walk in the park. It certainly helps that she's got kick-butt boots to back her up. In the film, she's wearing The Frye Company's Melissa Tall Lace boots in dark brown. $398 at thefryecompany.com
A 'Titanic' gem
Calling all Titanic fans: Your heart can go on and on with this replica of the Heart of the Ocean necklace worn by Kate Winslet in the film. The Deep Romance Necklace by Telebrands features a 14.5-carat faux Ceylon Sapphire set in sterling silver plate. $19.90 at deepromance.com
Lawrence: Casual in Minnesota …
We can't wait for the Hunger Games movie, either. And Jennifer Lawrence has been busily promoting the film, in which she stars as conflicted survivor-turned-icon Katniss Everdeen. Lawrence earned her stripes in Tory Burch's Sylvie top while hyping the film Friday in Bloomington, Minn. $195 at ToryBurch.com. She paired it with J Brand's "910" low-rise skinny-leg jeans in Pure. For similar styles, visit Jbrandjeans.com.
… turns to Seattle chic …
And we love the fresh J Brand Zooey blazer she donned at another promotional appearance Saturday in Seattle. $650 at Jbrandjeans.com.
… and Hollywood glitz
Even if you can't quite rock Lawrence's golden back-baring Prabal Gurung confection, you can emulate Katniss' signature look with Jennifer Behr's delicate, tiny crystal Rosita head wrap, donned by Lawrence at the film's L.A. premiere Monday night. $168 at JenniferBehr.com.
Get waisted with a belt
Contrast belts are all the rage. Freida Pinto paired one with her multicolored Marni at H&M frock at the capsule collection's February launch party in L.A., and Mila Kunis belted up her Dior dress front-row at the brand's presentation during Paris Fashion Week. Get their look with the skinny square buckle belt from the Gap. $29.95 at Gap.com.
Draper, always dapper
Jon Hamm has been making the NYC rounds, stopping by Saturday Night Live and promoting his comedy Friends with Kids. And the Mad Men star is looking mighty dapper in Jack Spade's Bellow Tartan shirt. $195 at Jackspade.com.
Get made up like 'Mad'
Speaking of Mad Men, which returns on March 25, Estee Lauder has launched a gorgeous limited-edition compact and lipstick that pays tribute to the AMC series. Rouge, $40 and lipstick, $25, at Esteelauder.com
DVF for kids
Diane von Furstenberg, the iconic designer who's been worn by everyone from Julia Roberts to Rosario Dawson, is launching a pint-sized collection for GapKids and babyGap. The line, which includes kiddie wrap dresses and swimwear, hits stores on March 15. $20-$120.
Get a custom suit, fast
Attention guys: It's spring cleaning time, and that means closets too. Nordstrom and Joseph Abboud want to help you beef up your spring suit wardrobe. Starting today, customers at Nordstrom stores in major markets can work with an iPad-wielding sales associate to custom-design a suit in 30 minutes. There are over 600 fabrications from which to choose. Seasonal offerings for spring/summer include silks/silk cotton blends and linens. Suits are made in New Bedford, Mass., and arrive in about two weeks. Prices range from $795 to $1,295. Available in all Nordstrom stores by the end of March.
Snatch this purse
Bridesmaids star Melissa McCarthy boasted some serious arm candy at the Oscars: A custom-made Brian Atwood clutch. (The Help stars Jessica Chastain and Emma Stone also sported Atwood heels.)
