1. Trending: Sugary summer brights

We all know brights are a fail-safe look for summer, but the Teen Choice Awards 2013 were all about super-sweet pastels and cheerful rainbow hues - and none embraced the trend more so than Kerry Washington in a bedazzling, glitz-adorned Stella McCartney Resort 2014 pink shift dress. Kerry played up the feminine feel with bright red lips and tumbling waves, plus some sky-high Christian Louboutin heels.

6. Lily Collins' latest fashion win

Lily Collins seriously impressed after stepping out in yet another gorgeous look - having recently been putting on a super stylish fashion parade for the current promotion of film The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones. Pairing together striking separates, Lily wore a dip-hem Fausto Puglisi skirt in a palm tree print with a pale pink lining, teamed with a black, puff sleeved Houghton shirt and Brian Atwood shoes. Working a sixties-esque beauty look, Lily's hair was extra voluminous in a backcombed beehive, plus feline flicks on her eyes for a simple yet dramatic look. We're loving this emerging style icon…
