While the red carpet brings a rush of joy like no other gallery, it's sometimes nice to know what our leading ladies are wearing on a daily basis.

From this season's hottest trend for mirrored sunglases (as seen on Fergie and Anna Dello Russo), to switching statement necklaces for a statement scarf (Alessandra Ambrosio) and wearing socks with sandals (Sarah Jessica Parker), you'll find your weekend style inspiration here.

  • Alessandra Ambrosio, 6 June

    Alessandra Ambrosio's fringed scarf instantly offsets her neutral outfit. Could this be the new statement necklace?

  • Sarah Jessica Parker, 6 June

    Sarah Jessica Parker paired multicoloured spotted socks with red sandals out and about in New York.

  • Poppy Delevingne, 6 June

    Poppy Delevingne in a floral print dress out and about in London.

  • Naomi Watts, 6 June

    Naomi Watts wore cut-out white shoes with cropped jeans. It's how we'd want to look hailing a cab in New York.

  • Naomi Watts, 5 June

    Naomi Watts has a way of making fashionable items look accessible as seen on the red carpet. In her daily attire she's no less with this quirky, statement T-shirt, which she wore whilst cycling out and about in New York.

  • Rita Ora, 5 June

    We're used to seeing Rita with a bright red lip and oversized bomber jacket, so it's nice to see her pared back in this white jumpsuit (the staple colour this summer) whilst out and about in London.

  • Fergie, 4 June

    Fergie's nailing two summer sunglasses trends in one - mirrored lenses and cat-eye frames.

  • Rihanna, 4 June

    Rihanna wears this summer's 'white' trend with Chanel accessories and gold sneakers to a restaurant in Paris.

  • Amanda Seyfried, 4 June

    Amanda Seyfried wore a plain white T-shirt, leggings and black lace-up boots as she dropped off her dog at 'The Dog House' in Hollywood. Now let's adore the beauty in the blue scarf.

  • Halle Berry, 4 June

    Halle Berry wore an asymmetric All Saints coat with ripped straight-leg jeans and studded ankle boots, while dropping off her daughter at school in Beverly Hills.

  • Sarah Jessica Parker, 4 June

    Sarah Jessica Parker out and about in New York.

  • Bérénice Bejo, 3 June

    We love Bérénice Bejo's oversized, blue leopard print scarf which she wore while cycling in Paris.

  • Emma Watson, 2 June

    Emma Watson arrived at Los Angeles airport in black shades, a no-fuss side parting and a cardigan.

  • Helena Christensen, 3 June

    Helena Christensen was spotted in a relaxed and rolled-up jumpsuit and denim jacket, out and about in New York.

  • Anna Dello Russo, 1 June

    The queen of loud fashion looks unusually pared back here, but take it as our chance to jot down a few relatable style notes: wear the mirrored lenses trend as a statement piece; all-white high top trainers can look smart and tartan shirts are still fashionable. She was spotted walking her dog in Milan.

  • Heidi Klum, 1 June

    Heidi Klum wore an oversized, short-sleeved coat and flip flops to a family breakfast to kick off her 40th birthday celebrations in Los Angeles. Could this be the definition of casual chic?

  • Julianne Moore, 1 June

    All black has to be the most comforting look (other than pyjamas) and here's a way to make it look summery. As Julianne demonstrates, all it takes is slick black leather sandals, a neat top-knot and black shades.

  • Reese Witherspoon, 30 May

    The winter-to-spring wardrobe transition is never easy, but take inspiration from Reese Witherspoon's outfit: a feather-print navy skater skirt, a classic denim jacket and grey ankle boots. She was spotted on the streets of Los Angeles.

  • Natalie Portman, 30 May

    The grey sweatshirt sparked a fashion frenzy this year and topped Stylist's Fashion Power List. We love Natalie Portman's embroidered one which she paired with skinny navy trousers, as she walked through LAX Airport in Los Angeles.

  • Sarah Jessica Parker, 30 May

    Out and about in New York, Sarah Jessica Parker wore a striped T-shirt over a floral midi-length dress. It's the perfect way to make your favourite dress look nonchalant.

  • Lily Cole, 30 May

    Lily Cole wore a gorgeous orient-print maxi dress to the Hay Festival in Wales. She paired it with a knitted scarf and black leather bootsso to give it that festival meets country-girl edge.

  • Jessica Alba, 30 May

    With the sweep of a bright scarf Jessica Alba updates her otherwise seasonless outfit. She was spotted out and about in Los Angeles.

  • Sandra Bullock, 30 May

    Sandra Bullock wore a classic striped T-shirt and ripped boyfriend jeans to pick up her son from school.

  • Lea Michele, 30 May

    Lea Michele wore a short-sleeved, oversided knit and ripped boyfriend jeans while out and about in Beverly Hills.

  • Gwen Stefani, 30 May

    Gwen Stefani has come a long long way from wearing bindis, but here she touches on a few Indian style notes. She wore silver anklets and a printed pashmina scarf while out and about in Los Angeles.

  • Jennifer Lopez, 30 May

    Are your eyes on the shoes? Yes, we're not sure either. But from the ankle up Jennifer Lopez looks just the way we would want to look walking out of a hotel in London (as she is) or walking into the office. She's wearing J Brand jeans, a Bec & Bridge white blazer and blouse, and a Stark clutch.

  • Sarah Jessica Parker, 29 May

    You can't go wrong with an outfit like this. SJP wore rolled up jeans, a grey top and a short-sleeved leather jacket whilst out and about with her twin daughters in New York. And look! She's holding a brolly too.

  • Amy Adams, 29 May

    The leading lady of upcoming Superman flick Man of Steel was spotted in New York wearing blue on blue. Denim on Denim is a huge trend this year so if you haven't bought your denim shirt yet, this is the way to do it...

  • Jessica Biel, 29 May

    Jessica Biel was also seen in New York wearing blue on blue. She paired her ripped boyfriend jeans with a slouchy thin knit, studded sandals and a yellow bag for a colour pop.

  • Hayden Panettiere, 29 May

    Arriving at Los Angeles airport, Hayden Panettiere wore a light denim jacket on darker jeans.

  • Andrea Riseborough, 29 May

    Andrea Riseborough shows that a pair of semi-quirky sunglasses and a neat clutch can go a long way. They completed her look as she left the Good Morning America TV show in New York.

  • Hilary Duff, 29 May

    Amongst all the denim, Hilary Duff makes a pretty good case for the wide-legged trouser. She was spotted with her son out and about in LA.

  • Jessica Alba, 29 May

    Jessica Alba never overdoes it (she always looks comfortable and very much herself) yet with a few added accessories - the cat eye sunglasses, oversized scarf and printed bag - she's still the stuff of fashion dreams. She was spotted out and about with her family in LA.

  • Milla Jovovich, 28 May

    The model and actress was no stranger to the red carpet at Cannes and now that she's moved onto Italian territory at the Venice Biennale (the art world's biggest event), we're continuing to love her style. Her coat, scarf and pumps channel those warm Mediterranean hues we're dreaming of at our desks.

  • Michelle Obama, 28 May

    Our favourie first lady wears a lime green shirt with yellow Converse sneakers while harvesting vegetables in the Whitehouse vegetable garden. Her middle parting and soft curls add just a tad dose of glamour.

  • Gemma Arterton, 28 May

    The Byzantium actress wore a knee-length, fitting, white Talbot Runhof dress and black Jimmy Choos to visit the BBC Radio 1 studios. Notice the layered fabric details - quite possibly the subtlest and softest way to wear power shoulders. Business dress perfection.

  • Rumer Willis, 28 May

    Leaving a breakfast meeting in Beverly Hills, Rumer Willis wore a striped T-shirt dress, black gladiator sandals and bright pink nails for colour.

  • Duchess of Cornwall, 28 May

    On a two-day trip to Paris and what is her first solo trip abroad, Camilla opted for a short string of pearls, a camel trench and tan coloured heels. A classic look for your average Parisian experience...a personal tour of the Louvre and a meeting with Raf Simons at the Dior store.

  • Diane Kruger, 27 May

    It's always worth analysing Diane Kruger in a little more detail, so here we go: a black-polka-dot-on-white shirt; a buttoned skater skirt; grey, patent black and white brogues, a straw fedora, and a floral print black box bag. Let's just call it our wish list. (She attended Joel Silver's Memorial Day Party in Malibu.)

  • Kate Beckinsale, 27 May

    Kate Beckinsale demonstrates the best way to wear printed shorts, at Joel Silver's Memorial Day Party in Malibu.

  • Gwen Stefani, 27 May

    The coolest mum around paired a fail-safe striped vest with statement asymmetric trousers and yellow 60s-inspired Karen Walker sunglasses to Joel Silver's Memorial Day Party in Malibu.

  • Minnie Driver, 27 May

    French Riviera is summertime style gold and Minnie Driver wears it perfectly with a white jumpsuit, straw fedora and black sunglasses to Joel Silver's Memorial Day Party in Malibu.

  • Dianna Agron, 27 May

    The Glee star also opted for those classic French Riviera shades of white, black and navy to Joel Silver's Memorial Day Party in Malibu. But if we had to pick our favourite part of her outfit, it's those round rose-tinted sunglasses. Pair it with a dramatic side parting like she has and you'll upgrade any look.

  • Louise Roe, 27 May

    You wouldn't think a kaki-green mesh tank top and pink draw-string skirt could work, but with the right accessories - those phenomenal sandals and chunky stone ring - Louise Roe does the impossible. She wore this Derek Lam for DesigNation outfit to a Memorial Day bbq in LA.

  • Rihanna, 26 May

    Shopping in Morocco, Rihanna wore a 'My Studio Hype Means Nothing' Kate Moss T-Shirt (earlier this year she was spotted wearing one with the face of Barack Obama). She looks quite the global traveller, with her white headscarf, opulent jewellery and chunky boots.
