Sometimes it’s the little touches that take your outfit from average to enviable. Celebrities have stylists to calculate all the complicated nuances of putting together a look, but we aren’t all so fortunate. Luckily, tFS has put together some celeb-inspired styling tips and tricks to help you put together a look that’s got that extra oomph! As the front row stars compete with the models, the celeb looks at fashion week are half the fun. In Paris, stars were the picture of feminine springtime sporting sweet dresses in petal shades, light outerwear, and fabulous shoes and clutches. Don’t have a stylist? Let Mila Kunis, Dianna Agron, and Caroline Sieber show you how to get your spring look blooming.
Tip #1: Blush, cream and chestnut are demurely feminine
Classic, feminine, and demure, Mila Kunis couldn’t have looked any lovelier—or more Dior at the line’s show in Paris. As the latest brand ambassador, the actress wore the designer from head to toe. She picked the perfect blush and cream shades to complement her coloring, wearing a dusty pink lace dress and swingy white coat from the Pre-Fall 2012 collection. Belting the dress was a good choice as it created a line of contrast and flattered her silhouette at the same time, while her peep toe pumps coordinated perfectly with the dress and her chestnut Miss Dior handbag was a chic carry-all.

Tip #2: Sparkle in a pair of cap-toe pumps
Dianna Agron looked pretty as a peach as she arrived at the Louis Vuitton show. The coral color of her dress popped against her all-black accessories including an embellished clutch by the designer—a must-have for celebs in the front row—but the most eye-catching piece in her look was her Vuitton Pre-Fall 2012 pump with a pointed sparkling cap-toe. This is a shoe to watch—Gwyneth Paltrow was spotted in the same pair, and Kristen Stewart wore them in cream.

Tip #3: A pullover, pleated dress. and floppy hat are Parisian-chic
Stylist Caroline Sieber posed outside the Chloe show in Paris, but she could’ve easily been on a (very chic) trip to the market or stroll through a park in this very Parisian-chic outfit. The way she layered a few understated pieces created a look that’s effortlessly put together without being too coordinated. She wore a floaty pleated dress by the designer in an undeniably girly color, tempering it with a navy Pringle of Scotland sweater and accessorizing with a beaded Christopher Kane clutch, floppy Maison Michel hat, and fantastic bow-embellished mauve heels by Louis Vuitton.
