Gabrielle Union and Lauren Conrad'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.

Gabrielle Union

We're obsessed

If you're counting the days until Think Like a Man Too hits theaters next week like us, you'll be happy for this little slice of style inspiration courtesy of the lovely Gabrielle Union. The actress hit the movie's Los Angeles premiere in this black lacy piece of style perfection and we couldn't help but obsess.

When the temperature rises, we typically stow away our black clothes (summer calls for brights, after all) but Gabrielle has us rethinking black lace for the hot months. Worn in a loose, airy silhouette over a bralette, her crop top looks sassy and totally wearable over a matching high-waisted pencil skirt. Keeping with the monochromatic theme, Gabrielle stepped into some black peep toe ankle strap heels and added a touch of color with a classic red lip.

The final verdict? As if her outfit wasn't chic enough already, Gabrielle finished things off with a sleek, slicked back 'do and some classy bracelets. We might want to think like a man when it comes to dating, but we also want to think like Gabrielle when it comes to our style.

Lauren Conrad

We're obsessed

When we think "summer style icons," Lauren Conrad is always one of the first ladies that comes to mind. The fashion and beauty expert and author stopped by Extra headquarters for a TV appearance this week looking adorable in a summery fit and flare dress.

Doesn't Lauren look flirty and summery in her colorful dress and white ankle strap sandals? So cute. She paired the frock with a bronzed glow, beachy waves, metallic nails and the most fresh-faced makeup we've seen in quite some time. Part of the reason we adore this look so much? Its versatility. Honestly, you could make this look work for any summer outing you have this season.

The final verdict? While gorgeous, the color of Lauren's dress doesn't always mesh well with all skin tones, so we've found a fun, flirty silhouette that mirrors Lauren's cool vibe but incorporates a bunch of colors so you'll be able to rock her look for your unique skin tone.
