With a Slip Dress

At the CFDAs in June, Conrad (above), 30, added a borrowed-from-the-boys touch to her blush LC Lauren Conrad Runway slip dress with a long, shawl-collar blazer (also from her line). She amped up the femininity, though, with a romantic updo with tendrils pulled loose, a vampy lip and brightly blushed cheeks.

With Jeans

At the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Fashion Show in October, the True Detective actress, 40, put a festive spin on a white button-up and jeans with a feathered Kate Spade New York blazer, teamed with a glittering clutch and embellished slingbacks (also by the label). Soft curls and a pearly pink lip added a sweet touch to the party-ready look.
