Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge is pretty in pink in one of her favorite brands, Emmy Rossum demonstrates the power of a simple and chic little white dress, and Julianne Hough is a boho beauty in a go-to bridal designer. Here, the red carpet looks we couldn't get enough of this week.

Catherine Duchess of Cambridge at the "Vogue 100: A Century Of Style" Exhibition: Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge has quite the history with the Alexander McQueen brand. Her wedding gown was created by McQueen's designer, Sarah Burton, so it was magical to see her wear the brand again this week. She celebrated her VOGUE UK cover at the magazine's centennial exhibition—slipping on a blush pink peplum top and pleated skirt from the iconic British fashion house. The look spoke to her refined style and would be perfect for your engagement party, if you're opting for classic elegance. And if you're thinking of taking the ensemble up a notch, you can always add a hot pink lip and statement-making sandals in place of the Duchess's voluminous tresses and pared-down accessories.

Emmy Rossum at the Keanu Los Angeles Premiere: We've certainly got our eyes on Emmy Rossum! The brunette beauty got engaged in September, so she could get hitched any minute. And she's been giving us pre-wedding party style inspiration every step of the way—hitting the red carpet weekly in looks we want to mimic for the momentous festivities. This week, it was all about a flirty, textured LWD and timeless Christian Louboutin pumps—can you say rehearsal dinner? Her butterfly brooch was a nice touch and we recommend a custom pin that incorporates you and your future spouse's initials. This is also such an understated getup that you can easily add a great updo and head-turning accessories if you're more of a fashion daredevil.

Julianne Hough at FOX & Friends: Few designers make more gorgeous bridal-perfect looks than Monique Lhuillier. Julianne Hough chose a boho-chic embroidered dress from the designer: it doesn't get better than this when you're thinking of an outdoor, rehearsal dinner outfit. We're totally on board with her loose waves, rosy pink lips, and Bionda Castana pumps (a celeb fave). You can wear these pumps with everything from denim to a printed pencil skirt, so they're well worth the investment!
