Move over colored jeans and printed denim. There is a new celebrity obsession that has taken over Hollywood: tuxedo pants. Tinseltown trendsetters have been spotted donning the dapper bottoms with everything from blazers and pumps to slick leather jackets and combat boots. Gwen Stefani went edgy-chic in an orange blazer and gray tuxedo pants in LA, Miranda Kerr was prim and polished in cropped A.L.C. trousers and patent Manolo Blahnik pumps in NYC, while Jessica Alba brought florals to Fall in a blooming Stylestalker blazer and blue Current/Elliott tuxedo-stripe denim in LA. Cruise through to see what other fashionistas have been rocking these dashing bottoms, then test-drive the trend in similar, and exact pairs, for yourself.
While promoting Breaking Dawn Part 2 in NYC, Kristen Stewart showed off her latest street style: a two-tone leather jacket by Belstaff and these Hudson cropped black tuxedo jeans ($198). The actress finished her casual-cool outfit with signature Keds sneakers and a basic black Joe's Jeans tank. Tuxedo jeans are all the rage right now, and we recommend investing in Kristen's exact pair because it's black on black and will go with everything in your wardrobe. Dress them down with sneakers like the actress did or dress them up with a pair of killer sandals or booties and a blazer. For an office-appropriate look, sport your tuxedo jeans with a silky white blouse and classic pumps.
Jessica Alba strolled the streets of NYC looking impeccable in blue cat-eye sunglasses and chunky black booties. But it's what's under her black coat that we're really eying: a striped Ann Taylor sweater and Hudson yellow skinny jeans. We love Jessica's understated pops of color, including her pink crossbody bag. She shows that, with the right amount of balance with dark hues, brights can be worn in the cold. Plus, colorful stripes are right on trend this season, so take a cue from this fashionista and pair your favorite striped sweater with colored jeans. Or, for a more dressed-up approach, wear your striped top with a full skirt and ankle-strap wedges.
While the holidays are prime time for sequined wear, you can still wear your shimmering tops, bottoms, and little dresses right now, as long as you stick to a few strategic style guidelines. The key to working Summer sequins is to make it look casual and nonchalant. Forget ultra-tight silhouettes and think breezy, not clingy. To help show you how, we've garnered fashionable examples from Joy Bryant, Mary-Kate Olsen, and Diane Kruger, who all suited up in their own versions of Summer-perfect, easy sequined styles. Now, click through to see how you can do the same.

Elle Macpherson, one of London's hottest moms, dropped her kids off at school wearing yet another stylish ensemble. She paired her shredded Hudson flag jeans with tall black boots, an asymmetrical zip-up sweater, a blue scarf, and chic shades, letting her beautiful bouncy hair complete the look to perfection. Shop her exact jeans and other similar items now!
Kate Moss doesn't usually stray away from her sleek modus operandi, but when she does, it's just as amazing. While out celebrating her bro's birthday in London, the Super donned a pair of funky lace-up jeans. It's very Guns N' Roses circa '90, and I love how the lacing goes all the way up her legs. I suggest offsetting the old school vibe by pairing these pants with a decadent chubby — a la Kate — or fancy embellished top. If the full-legged corset is too much for your taste, opt for pants with less lacing. No matter what, don't forget the badass heels and rock star attitude.
Kate Hudson was photographed on her way to Alex Rodriguez's apartment in NYC. She dressed conservatively and chic in a pair of distressed Hudson jeans and a crisp white blazer. Her platform shoes and fun accessories gave this ensemble a bohemian feel, which is all attainable by shopping now!
