The Chicest Couple: Kate Bosworth and Michael Polish
Given her trendsetter status, you'd think it would have been hard for Kate Bosworth to find an equally style-savvy partner. But, she met her match in husband Michael Polish, who more than holds his own next to his wife. With Bosworth in a Burberry trench and Rodarte booties and Polish in a gray wool coat, they couldn't be more chic if they tried.

Complementary outerwear? Check! Touching down at LAX, Bosworth wore a Coach houndstooth parka, dark jeans, and Coach boots, while Polish opted for an army-green jacket, jeans, and sneakers.

The duo looked positively vacation-ready at LAX this summer. Bosworth nailed the high-low mix, pairing an H&M tank and Topshop skirt with Charlotte Olympia sandals and a Burberry bag.

The Perennially Polished Mom: Reese Witherspoon
Reese Witherspoon is that mom. You know: the one who never has a hair out of place, always wears her Sunday best, and constantly leaves you wondering, "How does she do it?" Exhibit A: this midsummer outfit, consisting of a Lovers + Friends top and skirt, Kate Spade heels, and a Maiyet tote (matched to her lipstick, no less).

This is how to do leopard for the office. We love how Witherspoon teamed her RED Valentino coat with simple black accessories to let the statement topper take center stage.

As Witherspoon demonstrates, red and navy are a fail-safe (yet underappreciated) color combo.

The Clothing Chameleon: Diane Kruger
One of the things we love most about Diane Kruger is that we never know what she'll wear next. One day, it might be a ladylike look, like this outfit she wore shopping, and the next...

...She'll throw us for a loop and don playful overalls.

Or, she'll pair a Stella McCartney graphic sweater with leather pants, Gianvito Rossi sandals, and rag & bone sunglasses. Whatever she wears, though, one thing's certain: She always looks good.

The LAX Expert: Rihanna
How do you schlep through the airport without looking like you're schlepping through the airport? Just take style cues from Rihanna, who never sacrifices her signature edge just because she's mile-high-bound. We're constantly in awe of her LAX looks, including this trucker-hat-topped ensemble. The pièce de résistance: the '90s-inspired denim shirt tied around her waist.

Yes, this is exactly what it looks like: a DKNY sweatshirt maxi-dress. It also looks incredibly comfortable.

The sartorial equivalent of a #wokeuplikethis selfie. But, we're talking about Rihanna here, and she obviously pulls it off with aplomb.

The Denim Whisperer: Jessica Alba
Whether she's heading into the office or catching a flight, Alba knows how to style her blues. Here, she reported for duty at The Honest Company HQ wearing a knee-length denim skirt with a crop top and lace-up ankle booties. The result is an office-appropriate look that doesn't scrimp on style.

Alba dressed up her Citizens of Humanity boyfriend jeans by adding pointy-toe pumps, a gray jacket, and a Lanvin bag.

The Ultimate Cali Cool Girl: Emma Roberts
Who is the Cali cool girl? For starters, her outfits always have an effortless vibe, and she dabbles in trends but isn't a slave to them. And, Emma Roberts pretty much epitomizes her. Case in point: this easygoing outfit. She teamed a loose Topshop tunic with a striped Thakoon Addition sweater, and then gave the neutral pieces a sporty kick with Golden Goose sneakers.

A simple, long-sleeved shirt and high-waisted jeans never looked better.

We love the juxtaposition of Roberts' tough-girl leather pants and adorable fox-embellished Tory Burch sweater.

The Grown-Up Girl Next Door: Mindy Kaling
As lovable and relatable as her sense of humor, Kaling's fuss-free style is truly timeless. Who couldn't picture themselves in this perfect-for-shopping outfit?

Wearing two leather pieces could be tricky to pull off, but Kaling nails it by choosing un-embellished, sleek pieces and sticking to a classic black-and-white palette.

Kaling proved that showing lots of skin isn't the only way to look hot for a night out.

The Pregnancy-Style Perfecter: Zoe Saldana
It's no easy feat to #stylethebump when you've got paparazzi following you everywhere — unless you're Zoe Saldana, who took the pressure in stride (before giving birth this past weekend!). For a stroll with husband Marco Perego, she kept it simple with a striped midi-dress, flat sandals, and a red tote.

Now, this is how expectant moms should do after-dark dressing. Proving that pregnant ladies need not shy away from vivid prints, Saldana looked gorgeous in a Givenchy wrap dress and metallic heels at Cecconi's in West Hollywood.

Take note: Sweatpants and tees aren't your only options if you want to go the comfortable route. For an end-of-summer outing, Saldana nailed it in this easy-yet-stylish jersey number.

The Model-Off-Duty Master: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
Even without mile-long legs, you can pull off the model-off-duty look simply by emulating Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's style. Her trick for mastering white-on-white? Choose pieces in subtly different shades, like the cream Chloé sweater and crisp, white Paige Denim jeans she paired here.

The Fashion Risk-Taker: Gwen Stefani
Gwen Stefani has one of those personal styles that's immediately recognizable. Even though her outfits run the gamut from cool white jumpsuits like this one to sleek, sophisticated looks, her rocker touch is always evident.
