Living on the East coast makes Coachella seem like it's a world away–but that doesn't mean I can't enjoy the sun, music, crowds, and relaxed fashion vicariously through others. With its official end this past weekend, I found myself tallying its various sartorial hits and misses. So many celebrities seem to try too hard–I'm looking at you Emma Roberts and Katy Perry–and some barely try at all (you really should have done better Lauren Conrad and Lea Michele). Then some people get it just right. Technically this Rosie Huntington-Whiteley outfit had one too many trendy elements, but they suited the event and her style so perfectly it worked. Daisy-embellished shorts? A sheer, unbuttoned blouse with a nude bra? Lots of mismatched gold jewelry? Taupe ankle boots? A denim bag? Yes to all of the above.
What do you think? Did you have a favorite look from Coachella 2012?

Suede heels, skinny jeans, and a deeply draped sweater aren't exactly the most practical things to wear when going pumpkin picking. As if those pieces weren't attention-grabbing enough, Kristin Cavalleri paired them all with a boldly printed oversized sweater on October 19 in Beverly Hills. The result? Fabulous. The sweater's combo of burgundy and taupe is lovely, and although she did wear colors similar to the print, the tones varied enough to keep things from being too matchy-matchy. I'm thinking of heading to a nearby patch soon and I must admit her look is giving me some outfit inspiration. I think I'll steer clear of suede footwear though– New York fields tend to be pretty muddy, apparently completely unlike their Californian counterparts.

You have to hand it to the Giorgio Armani label: they cut exceptionally flattering suits. So it was no surprise to me that this stunning white blazer–and button-down–was from the fashion house. Jessica Alba looked incredible at Armani's private dinner in Los Angeles co-hosted by Vanity Fair on October 11 and I’m not even referring to the fact that she was nine months pregnant only two months ago. I loved the bold two-tone combination and the wide leg pants. On women a jacket and trouser pairing can come off as mannish, but Jessica kept it sultry and feminine with a smoky eye, loose hair, and sparkly gold accessories.
