The Stylish Vote: Allison Williams, Rachel Roy, Julianne Margulies

Sophisticated toppers in bold hue like a burnt orange or tomato red are a definite do for fall and these celebs got the memo: Allison Williams is the poster child for effortless chic dressed in an oversized 3/4-length coat, a white blouse and matching trouser pants all by Calvin Klein at Marie Claire’s Power Luncheon in New York City.

Rachel Roy showed off her curves in a body-con dress with a plunging neckline and finished the look with a red overcoat draped over here shoulders at the film premiere for “Last Vegas” in NYC. Julianne Margulies did a little shopping in the Big Apple dressed in a gorgeous red swing coat by Philosophy.

**UPDATE** This poll is closed. Rachel Roy is the Stylin’ Chick of the Week.

VIDEO: RACHEL Rachel Roy Fall 2013

I’ve been a longtime fan of the RACHEL Rachel Roy line. It’s super sophisticated with a touch of edginess and reasonably priced for those of us who can’t spend a fortune on designer clothes. While I was perusing some of my favorite YouTube channels over the weekend, I watched the designer’s promo video for her fall 2013 collection. It’s badass. Check it out:

The pieces featured aren’t too girly and you can easily dress them up or down — and I’m all about multi-functional fashion. There’s a jacquard print jacket and matching pants that aren’t available yet, but I totally plan to stalk the site until I can get my hands on them!

Here are a few of my other favorite pieces from the RACHEL Rachel Roy Fall 2013 collection:

The Stylish Vote: Rachel Roy, Kelly Rowland, Olivia Palermo

These ladies are having a major style moment in fashionable looks featuring tailored blazers. Rachel Roy looked radiant in a peach structured blazer and black cut-out jumpsuit paired with black stilettos, a gray crocodile clutch and chunky gold accessories at the premiere for “In the Moment” in New York.

Kelly Rowland wore a chic “night out” look consisting of a black blazer with leather sleeves, black blouse, red slim fit ankle paints and zebra print pumps at the Gary Clark, Jr. concert in West Hollywood. Olivia Palermo rocked the urban girl’s uniform: a structured blazer with leather leggings paired with strappy suede sandals, statement earrings and a metallic clutch at the NYC premiere of “Pain & Gain.”

The Stylish Vote: Liya Kebede, Rachel Roy, Carolyn Murphy

The Ninth Annual CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards went down in New York City and while there were tons of stylish looks, these three ladies stood out because they dared to go there in winter white.

Model Liya Kebede was fashion forward in a sleeveless perforated dress with an exposed front zipper, black strappy sandals and chain strap evening bag. Designer Rachel Roy looked effortlessly chic in a pant suit with cropped trousers, a leopard print blouse and tan and gold platform sandals. Model Carolyn Murphy proved why years later she’s still at the top of the fashion game dressed in a form-fitting cocktail dress with embroidered details and silver pointed-toe heels.
