The team of ladies featured in today's story combine to form a truly sensational edition of What Was She Wearing: Answers! Whether you favor the demure look of Emma Roberts or you would rather emulate Serena van der Woodsen's wild child taste, we are sure there is enough celebrity style here for everyone. Enjoy!

Emma Roberts
Unlike most seventeen-year-old girls, Emma Roberts possesses an elegant style that influences teenagers and adults alike. The sweet-faced actress recently piqued your curiosity when she left London's Radio One in Theory's Bram Tankicon ($55), Ksubi's Super Skinny Jeans ($226), and Frye's Veronica Slouch Boots ($328). Roberts' punched up these key basics by adding Current/Elliott's Lady Jacket ($270, available at in late October) and a See by Chloe Daytripper Shoulder Bagicon ($750) from the line's debut handbag collection. You can find this exact magenta leather tote at Neiman Marcus (212.840.1200), though if you want to save some dough, Matt & Nat's Kali Shoulder Bag ($240) has a similar color and shape.

Alexa Chung
Few ladies leave us as besotted with their attire as Alexa Chung. Our readers seem to agree, because the minute she steps out of her house, we get a stream of requests in our inboxes. Chung most recently inspired everyone while attending a screening for Leon in London earlier this month. She tucked a Marc by Marc Jacobs Off The Deep End Teeicon ($68) into H&M's High Waisted Shorts ($40, 310.855.1009), and stayed warm in Sonia by Sonia Rykiel's Striped Cardigan ($370, 212.229.9424). To cozy up for less, we recommend Vince's Ensign Cardigan ($320) or Forever 21's Wide Stripe Cardigan ($25). Chung completed her outfit in some fabulous vintage shoes, but John Fluevog's Darjeeling Heels ($173) are superb substitutes.

Katie Holmes
We will always remember the evenings we spent faithfully watching Dawson's Creek and the unfailing drama in Joey Potter's world. Sadly, fresh episodes are a thing of the past, but happily we've found an excellent substitute to watch instead: Katie Holmes' evolving style! readers are equally captivated by her taste in clothes and one outfit in particular recently caught your attention. Seen here strolling in Manhattan, Holmes wore a Scoopneck T-Shirt from The Row ($260, at Bergdorf Goodman in New York), J Brand's Cass Jeans ($275), and Juicy Couture's Sheered Cardigan ($148, 212.727.8029). As per usual, she complemented her look with some amazing add-ons: Chloe's Python Paraty Bag ($3800, exact bag at Neiman Marcus, 212.840.1200) and Lanvin's Metallic Ballet Flats ($550).

Blake Lively
The second season of Gossip Girl premiers in less than two weeks, so the wait is almost over! In the meantime, we (and you fellow fans) have been tracking pictures from set like giddy school girls. Just last week, Blake Lively was snapped while filming the show in Diane Von Furstenberg's Isletti Vest ($245), Rich & Skinny's Sleek Jeans ($167), and a high-style, low-price pair of Nine West's Iceblue Ankle Boots ($109). She carried Celine's Watch Me Work Bag ($2100) in taupe lambskin, which is available at the Celine Boutique in New York (212.486.9700) right now. The yummy tote is also currently in stock online in a gorgeous candy apple red patent leather. On a more affordable note, BCBCMaxAzria's Shelby Double Handle Satchelicon ($378) and Spiegel's Chain-Accented Hobo ($59) remind us of Lively's bag, but sell at a fraction of the price. Lively (or van der Woodsen, we should say) finished her look by matching the detachable chain on her bag with Gemma Redux's Sas Necklace ($424). We suggest DL by Dirty Librarian's Chains Rhinestone Knotted Necklace ($38) as an alternative.-Jessica Amento
