First Place: Maria Helena Vianna at the Free Arts Auction

When you upstage the fashion worshiping Olsen twins at their own event, you know you look good. In a sleek, one-shoulder dress that fits like a glove, Maria Helena Vianna is the picture of sophistication. Sometimes you can stand out for the sheer fact that you look simple and timeless.

Second Place: Stylish Friends at the 5th Annual DIVAS Shop for Opera

These girls know that some accessories can take a simple tee and jeans, and make them red carpet ready. Love the bright yellow top for Spring! But the girl on the right's top is really perfect: chic, feminine and flowy. Pairing it with the necklace is gorgeous - love, love it!

Third Place: Hipster Guys from the JBNY Store Launch Celebration

These guys are rocking effortlessly cool looks with their hoodies and jeans. What makes it so cool is that it probably really was effortless - not the "it took me an hour to get my hair to look this perfectly messy" look. And the guitar just takes it to another level.

Runner Up: Classic Tweed at Newport in New York

From the sleek blond hair to the ruffled white shirt to the preppy pink tweed, this woman looks like a Stepford Wife... in the best way possible. Chic, chic, chic - Coco Chanel gave tweed jackets her seal of approval decades ago, so it's cool with us!

Honorable Mention: THE HATS!! THE HATS!!

We assume that there was a theme going on at the Society Spring Gala, and that everyone didn't suddenly reveal their hat fetish, but... wow. Everybody looked so fierce (sorry for the played out word choice, but there's just no other way to describe it). So fierce, in fact, that they all get a mention in this week's roundup.
