It's all about rising actresses for Miu Miu's most recent ad campaign, as it showcases the modeling talents of Elizabeth Olsen (who, considering her sisters are fashion mavens Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, is no stranger to designer labels), Elle Fanning, and 12 Years a Slave star Lupita Nyong'o.
Olsen (above photo) channels her inner 70's vixen with her poker straight hair and thigh high socks under suede boots. Elle (photo after the jump) strikes an awkward pose - is she going for demure or mysterious? - but pulls off the Miu Miu printed dress with yellow stockings and red shoes brilliantly. Lupita (photo after the jump) - in her first fashion campaign, mind you! - looks a little stiff but nonetheless striking in a beaded bustier top, navy skirt, hot pink stockings, and some seriously chunky white sandals.

Cameron Diaz wishes women were kinder to each other.
The Annie star, who recently admitted she stopped using Botox because it made her face look "weird," doesn't believe anti-aging creams work and thinks women should encourage each other to grow old gracefully.
"I wish that women would let other women age gracefully and allow them to get older and know that as we get older, we become wiser," the 41-year-old said. "There's no such thing as anti-aging. There's no such thing as turning back the hands of time, and it makes me crazy that we live in a society where that's sold to women - that we're supposed to believe that if we're getting older, we've failed somehow, that we have failed by not staying young."
The blonde beauty, who recently released her new The Body Book, insists she is much happier with how she looks now than when she was younger: "I don't want to look like I did when I was 25. I like the way that I look now better than when I was 25. I can't help that other people may be uncomfortable with that, but that's not my responsibility to make them feel okay with the fact that I'm getting older. I'm okay with it. I like it."
Carrie Bradshaw, eat your heart out.
The Hours actress Nicole Kidman has bared it all for shoe designer Jimmy Choo in the company's latest ad campaign, proving that she's still looking fierce in her 40's. Despite her amazing figure, it was apparently the mother of three's acting resume that inspired creative director Sandra Choi to hire her to sell their shoes.
"I love Nicole Kidman's openness to embracing a new character and each season she transforms into a new personality that embodies the spirit of the collection... Her poses are striking yet unexpected and her natural beauty is mesmerizing. She exudes feminine confidence and there's a palpable sense of energy to the pictures," Choi said in a statement..
Kidman - who is married to country singer and American Idol judge Keith Urban - is pictured in one photo (to the right) wearing nothing but a purse and stockings while donning a blazer that barely covers her chest matched with barely-there panties in another (seen after the jump).

Sarah Jessica Parker has no fashion rules.
The former Sex and the City actress insists she doesn't worry about people dismissing her outfits as a "disaster" as she is only concerned with having fun with fashion.
"I think pulling it off or not pulling it off, that almost doesn't exist for me, because I'm looking for experiences, not some report card. I do love fantasy, color and the idea of no rules ... So you choose a dress people think is a disaster. In the end, who cares?"
The 48-year-old star - who has son James, 11, and twin daughters Marion and Tabitha, three, with husband Matthew Broderick - has teamed up with US retailer Nordstrom for her debut shoe collection, SJP, and says all the designs are for footwear she would want to have herself. Speaking to the new edition of InStyle magazine, she said, "If I'm going to ask people for their hard-earned dollars, I'd better be making shoes I want to wear. My real dream was a smaller line, my name, built in Europe, at a reasonable price point."
In a sea of advertisements where underage models are constantly used and already-thin celebrities are edited until their unrecognizeable, model-turned-actress Cameron Diaz has come to change things with her new book, The Body Book.
A short behind-the-scenes video of Diaz photographing women (of all shapes, sizes, and ethnicities!) for her book has been released (seen after the jump) in which the Counselor star promotes overall health and loving one's body instead of weight loss.
The 41-year-old has also been promoting going makeup free, as she even appeared in a photo holding a copy of The Body Book with what seems to be a completely fresh face!
Hopefully more celebrities take notice and jump onto Diaz's body-positive bandwagon.

“I want to go a little bit more Sofia Vergara, if she were an awkward German girl... [My stylist Erin] helps guide me. Sometimes I’ll do that thing where I’m like, ‘Oh, I want to wear the weirdest dress on the rack!’ She’s like, ‘Greta... it’s just going to make you look weird.’ Sometimes I do it anyway, and she’s like, ‘Seriously, what did I just tell you!'"
- Frances Ha actress Greta Gerwig shares her red carpet style thought process.

Yes, you sadly read that title correctly: Jennifer Lawrence has come out and said that what was probably her best The Hunger Games: Catching Fire red carpet look was not her favorite!
"I think any time a girl has to show her thighs it's never going to be her favorite look," she said on Good Morning America.
Although I usually eat up Lawrence's quotes, I'm still reeling from this one, considering she looked nothing but breathtaking and badass all at the same time in her Dior Haute Couture gown. Perhaps because she took a moment to realize that the dress was amazing, as she quickly clarified: "I loved it, I loved the dress -- if someone else wore it. It's hard for any woman to look at a picture of herself and [like it]."
Oh say it isn't so - our great defender of body positivity has let societal body pressures get to her when it came to this particular red carpet look. Let's hope she realizes that she's beautiful no matter what her thighs are and that she can definitely pull any gorgeous frock off with her adorable pixie cut!

Kate Hudson claims she "can't afford" designer clothes.
The Bride Wars actress - who has nine-year-old son Ryder with ex-husband Chris Robinson, and two-year-old son Bingham with fiance Matt Bellamy - insists she has to borrow the high-end gowns she wears for the red carpet because they are too pricey for her budget.
"People think we own all these dresses. But we borrow them! I can't afford to buy that stuff. There are certain things I splurge on, but it's very rare, especially when you have two kids and school tuition. I'm not a big high-end fashion shopper. I wish I could but the truth is things are just so expensive. Before Isabel Marant was a million dollars and famous, I used to go to her store in Paris and go crazy, it was so affordable," she told Harper's Bazaar.
The 34-year-old beauty - who is worth a reported $38 million - credits her mother, Goldie Hawn, with her frugal ways: "My mom wasn't a big shopper for us. I think they wanted to instill that in us even though we grew up in a really privileged and lucky lifestyle."
