Lily-Rose Depp doesn't need a mentor to make waves in the fashion industry - that's something the stylish 17-year-old's already got a handle on.

If Victoria Beckham is doling out fashion advice, you'd better believe we're taking it. So when the fashion designer extolled the virtues of wearing sneakers, we were all ears; when she debuts her new collections, we're waiting excitedly in the wings; and when she shows off an outfit on the street or red carpet, we're taking notes. To which, we've curated something of a style bible in Victoria's honor. Read on for 35 style truths we've learned all from studying VB's best looks.
It doesn't matter if we clean out our purses on Monday - by Friday, we've accumulated so much junk, from food receipts to bobby pins, that it takes us an average of five minutes just to find some gum. But thankfully, we're not the only ones with this problem. Hailey Baldwin's also got a Mary Poppins-like situation going on, as evident by a new British Vogue video where she empties out her Saint Laurent.
So what does Hailey carry on any given day? A phone charger, tangled necklaces (ugh, the worst), and a random medical textbook, just to name some of the stuff. See what else the model's storing into her tiny crossbody above. Then, shop some bags that are perfect for a night out.
Considering Kendall Jenner was pioneer of hip-bone-baring slit dresses, it's only natural the star would be one of the first to try a different leggy trend: the extreme asymmetrical skirt. Stepping out at the London launch of The Estée Edit, the model put her a good portion of her body on display, wearing a David Koma bodysuit and printed skirt that exposed her thigh on one side, while appearing somewhat modest on the other.
Will this be the new nearly naked style to take over the red carpet? Only time will tell. For now, take a look at Kendall's ensemble ahead. Then, see another piece this stylish star loves: the duster coat.
First things first: Rihanna and Julia Roberts are two stars with very different tastes in clothing. Rihanna's more edgy, frequently daring to go sheer and show off her body. Julia loves something crisp and clean and wouldn't be out of place wearing a suit on the red carpet. But lo and behold, these two fashion-forward ladies have found the one piece that looks great on both of them - a green Gucci dress, which was first seen on the Spring '16 runway.
While Julia rocked the lacy, midlength item to the InStyle Awards back in October, Rihanna stepped out in the same look - minus a bottom layer - this week, thus proving just how versatile this piece can be. Take a look how both women styled the statement dress, then shop it for yourself to wear as you'd like.
When you're invited to a major royal event, you can't just show up in any ol' LBD. You need to dress to impress - and impress Princess Mary of Denmark did, when she stepped out at Prince Oscar of Sweden's christening in a breezy printed dress, topping things off with an elegant, flower-adorned hat.
It was a look that was equal parts glamorous, modest, and perfect for Summer, and seeing Mary make her way through the crowd, we definitely got an Old Hollywood vibe. See Mary's stunning ensemble ahead, then brush up on some fashion facts you might not know about her.
With a fiery caped gown, Diane Kruger stepped onto the German Film Awards red carpet looking every bit the stylish superhero she is.

As for mastering the poses to show it off, Diane has that down too. Read on to see her wow in the utterly showstopping gown, then shop inspired looks for yourself.

Sophie Gégoire-Trudeau, the wife of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, flew the flag for Canadian fashion Thursday when she attended an engagement in Japan wearing a Toronto-born designer. On a visit to the Ise Jingu Shrine in Ise, Japan, Sophie wore a kimono-inspired jumpsuit in bright green, blue, and fuchsia created by Tanya Taylor. Tanya, who runs her business out of New York City, studied at Canada's McGill University and has become known for her bright and patterned designs.
Sophie is clearly a fan of Tanya's work, as is First Lady Michelle Obama. Since stepping onto the international stage, Sophie has made a point to showcase Canadian designers of clothing, bags, hats, and footwear. The practice of promoting domestic fashion industries through wardrobe choices is a tactic used by Michelle and even Kate Middleton, Britain's Duchess of Cambridge, proving Sophie's style is as diplomatic as it is chic.
