Fashion Trends 2008

Blake LivelyGwyneth Paltrow
Tailored Jackets
Gossip Girl lead Blake Lively dressed up her skinny jeans and Henley tank with a navy and white jacket from Smythe. Gold buttons on the double-breasted blazer added nautical flair while Gwyneth Paltrow was all business on this red carpet, the actress topped her heather gray shift with a military-style jacket, putting a serious spin on the strapless dress.

Leighton MeesterLucy Liu
Art Prints
Wearable art never looked so fresh. As Leighton Meester (in Chloe) demonstrates, the clothing should be the focus when it comes to wearing an artsy piece. Keep jewellery, shoes and other accessories minimal to let your artwork shine. This bold trend must be worn with confidence, as Lucy Liu did in her Oscar de la Renta brush-stroke frock. Fine-art fashion extends to accessories as well, which is a better bet if your style is a bit more subdued.

RihannaAnne Hathaway
She may be an R&B chart-topper, but Rihanna's always a rock star when it comes to cutting-edge style. A studded leather jacket from Gucci added attitude to a full-skirted ensemble from the line while Get Smart star Anne Hathaway rocked a single-shoulder design from Sophia Kokosalaki. She kept her leather ladylike with classic black pumps and a curled coif.

Claire DanesRihanna
Claire Danes shimmered in a draped and belted dress by Gucci. Matching metallic sandals and diamond bracelet made the dazzling frock even more golden while Rihanna stepped out in a silver bow-tied mini from Dolce & Gabbana. The trendsetting singer wisely kept her accessories simple, not to compete with her reflective dress.

Liv TylerFergie
Slouchy Dresses
Towering heels aside, Liv Tyler looked comfortably cool in a Stella McCartney dress. The actress effortlessly rocked the striped frock while bunching up the sleeves and using the low-slung pockets. Fergie’s LBD is anything but basic. The slouchy draping and keyhole gives a nod to sexy, while the leather catch keeps it edgy. The songbird added a touch of glamour to the look with a diamond cuff and jewelled heels.
