We're obsessed!

Jessica Alba and Olivia Palermo's beautiful celebrity styles made us do a double take this week! We're telling you why in this week's installment of Friday's Fashion Obsessions.

Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba

There's nothing mellow about this yellow coat Jessica Alba was spotted in recently. The actress, mom and businesswoman is the queen of chic street style and showed off her sartorial skills in this seasonally appropriate ensemble.

I love a walking fashion contradiction so I'm simply obsessed with Jessica's combo of girly and edgy here. The bright yellow coat is pretty and pops nicely against the mostly black outfit, and those heeled combat boots add some unexpected toughness. You might think her patterned dress and graphic clutch would compete for attention with the bold coat but they actually stand well on their own due to their mixed tones.

The final verdict? I can't remember the last time I saw Jessica on the worst dressed list. She's definitely one celeb whose closet I'd love to raid! This outfit is just perfection.

Olivia Palermo

Olivia Palermo

Also topping our best dressed list this week, Olivia Palermo proves yet again that she's got some serious fashion chops. The fashionista and socialite donned this pretty pleated LWD to a recent event.

So why is this simple white dress so special, you ask? That's easy. It kind of resembles a coat and shirtdress all at once, and features some major pleats with a peek of blue lining underneath. All these little details combine to make the dress really stand out! Olivia's statement necklace and colorful shoulder bag lend some additional color to the look and her understated makeup and hair let her dress take all the attention.

The final verdict? This look is so easy to wear and super versatile, too. Invest in a simple white shirt dress now and you'll be wearing it for seasons to come to multiple events — for work and play!
