As independent ladies who also happen to be big believers in the power of style to transform one’s self-image and self-confidence, we instinctively recoil at the idea that we should style our outfits for the attention of men.

When it comes to fashion It-girls, Amy Adams isn't always the first person who comes to mind. But we think she's an oft-overlooked diamond in the rough, for one reason in particular—she has a very easy, approachable personal style that somehow always looks effortlessly cool, but she can instantly change into an über-glam vixen at the drop of a hat.
Eva Chen is pregnant, y'all! The über-stylish Lucky editor chose to share the big news via the most adorable Instagram post we've ever seen--and that's really saying something, considering that Chen's Instagrams consistently rank super-high on the cuteness scale.
