The accessory of the season isn’t a shoe or a bag. Here at Style.com, we’re going with the wide-brimmed hat. Variations on the statement-making topper turned up at Victoria Beckham, Acne, and Costume National, but, in our view, the brims to beat are Hedi Slimane’s at Saint Laurent. Since the Spring shows, floppy felt chapeaux have all but replaced fedoras on the street. Recently, we’ve spotted models Miranda Kerr, Tilda Lindstam, and Daiane Conterato wearing them. Elizabeth Olsen is in the fan club, too.

There was no shortage of star wattage at Cannes this weekend, but it was a few newcomers who stood out on the fashion front. Girl-to-watch Elizabeth Olsen has enviable access to one of fashion’s most-desired labels; her sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley are the designers of The Row. Olsen took the line day to night, wearing a pretty white shift for an afternoon photo call for her film Martha Marcy May Marlene and amping up the glamour in a high-slit, beaded black number for its official premiere.

Clémence Poésy, on the other hand, went lighter and sweeter but still scored a winning look. The French actress chose a silk and taffeta gown from YSL’s Edition Soir for the Saturday premiere of Pirates of the Caribbean.
