Oh My Stars!

Skulls and crossbones are so last year. This spring's print du jour is all about stars. From the runways of Chanel and Yves St. Laurent to Kate Moss herself, stars are showing up everywhere. In a season that's major print trends focus on florals, tribals, and artsy, stars are a nice alternative to keep things punchy. Here are my starry picks in everything from clothes to beauty.
