Lauren Eggertsen is an associate editor at Who What Wear. As a huge fan of trending items, unique styling techniques and It-girl aesthetics, innovative outfits are her forte. See which celebrity-inspired ideas you should try this Easter.
Easter may not receive as much hype as Christmas or New Year’s Eve, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less deserving of a head-to-toe new look. After all, the sun is out, the flowers are blooming and it’s finally time to ditch those heavy winter layers. To that end, no matter what’s on your agenda (be it attending a church service or spending the afternoon at an elegant brunch with friends and family), I’ve found a seriously stylish outfit for you by pulling some divine inspiration from fashion-forward celebs like Victoria Beckham, Emily Ratajkowski and Lupita Nyong’o. There’s a look you’ll love, no matter your personal style (there’s even a look with jeans in the mix). And the best part about these holiday-inspired ensembles? They each only require three pieces to create—and anyone can do that, right?
READ THE STORY
The trends of yesterday have always proved a endless store of inspiration for the savvy designer; those of the future, not so much. Why? To put it simply, it hasn’t happened yet. Perhaps that’s the reason designers Carol Lim and Humberto Leon offered such a successful take on fast-forward fashion: they had the tangible art of visual futurist Syd Mead (of Blade Runner fame) to reference. The duo paid tribute quite literally—with the artist’s work printed atop color-blocked sweatshirts and a runway peppered with inflatable hovercrafts designed by Mead himself—while also taking the opportunity to explore more freely the idea of futuristic ready-to-wear, sans cartoonish construction.

Known for her ultra-feminine looks, Victoria Beckham switched things up for her Sunday show, adding sporty vibes and punches of print to her runway resume.
Normally the epitome of posh, Victoria Beckham revamped her aesthetic for spring, creating what she described as an “urban surf” vibe, drawing from classics like The Endless Summer to inject her line with fluid frocks, soft pleats and breezy tanks. Abandoning her signature body-con dress, she made sure to point out that the collection’s silhouettes were cut for women of all shapes.
Basing her collection in clean whites, Beckham introduced print as a major theme for the first time–adding punches of earth-toned ginghams and Japanese-inspired waves to the minimalistic collection. Clean lines, spring suede, graphic patterns and sporty touches all breezed down the runway.

Eleonora Carisi is a major Italian blogger (JouJouVilleroy) and has gained international fame in recent years, thanks to her impeccable sense of style.
It was an absolute scorcher in the city today, but Eleonora wasn’t fazed one bit. Her modern take on the flirty fit-and-flare dress is striking in its simplicity. Black and white is huge this season, and it’s exciting to see it in a more feminine look.

Lead Artist Charlotte Tilbury out did herself at this show. Inspired by the art of Andy Warhol, the makeup was flawless and made a statement. Charlotte used the Lancôme Lavender Collection launching in spring 2011. The lavender powder eyeshadow was used all over the eye. Lancôme’s Artliner in black was used to give the winged cat-eye feel and the eye was finished with Hypnose Drama. Charlotte didn’t use any blush and chose to illuminate the skin with the new Teint Miracle Foundation from Lancôme. On the lips she used a beautiful caramel laquered gloss and left brows natural. This is my favorite look thus far.
Fekkai Lead Stylist Didier Malige kept in theme with 60s-inspired hair—minus the teasing. To create this look, Malige prepped dry hair with Fekkai Coiff Strong Hold Mousse to give hair slick volume. Then, Malige created a middle part and tucked the hair straight behind the ears and spritzed with Fekkai Sheer Hold Spray to make hair more straight and heavy. He finished the hair using a crimping tool to make an unexpected single crimp across the back of the hair.
Finally, don’t forget about the nails. Creative Director from Butter LONDON, Nonie Crème created a beautiful Pink shade for spring just for Victoria’s show. Look how lovely Nonie looks holding her creation!
