Celebrities like Kate Moss and Alexa Chung get photographed practically every time they step outside, so naturally they know a thing or two about looking photo-ready on the fly. Although we can’t claim to have the paparazzi clamoring for a picture, we wouldn’t mind cribbing a few of their tricks for the times when our stylist and makeup artist have the day off (read: every day), and thought you might feel the same way. Click through now for the simple secrets to looking instantly presentable for your close up.

Secret 1: Top It Off
Tresses can’t be tamed? A hat not only covers up unruly hair, but makes a strong statement as well. Janessa Leone’s fedoras are a favorite of celebrities like Jessica Alba. A Zadig & Voltaire Love bag and Black Orchid High Waisted Skinny Jeans ($141) in Ikat complete Alba's look.
The silver detail gives a rustic fedora a sophisticated spin.
For the sake of looking pulled together, color coordinate a couple elements of your outfit, as this will quickly ensure you look unified. Lupita Nyong’o chose a pretty palette of greens including a Peter Pilotto Stretch Silk Mira Dress ($1666) and Manolo Blahnik BB Pointy Toe Pumps ($595) in Mint.
Call it the Lupita effect, but we rush to recreate anything she wears. We’ll emulate her spring green look with these pieces.
