    When you’re a star, there’s no waiting six months to wear the clothes you’ve seen on the catwalk – you simply get your designer bestie on speed-dial. Whether it’s specially made, a prototype or nabbed straight from the model backstage at the show, the A-list are the first to get their hands on next seasons collections, and are already nailing the Autumn/Winter 2016 looks right now.

    Never mind that we’ve only just hit full summer – one of the most exclusive fashion trends in Hollywood – which will inevitably inform how the rest of us plan our wardrobes come AW16 – is to pluck the looks straight off the runway, while they’re still hot.

    It started way back in February, when Hollywood’s finest pulled out all the stops on the Oscars red carpet. And the preferred way to get themselves on our best dressed lists? By opting for a dress that’s stepped off the catwalk just weeks, even days, before.

    Away from the red carpets, the likes of Kendall Jenner, Chloe Moretz and Kim Kardashian have been putting the next season trends into practice and working key pieces into their eveningwear attire. Be it a pink Balmain corset or an achingly cool Coach varsity jacket, it?s a key opportunity to nab some handy styling inspo.

    What’s even more beneficial is seeing what these in-demand stars and their in-the-know stylists choose when they have the pick of a very covetable designer bunch.

    Take Lady Gaga and the shimmering gold cocktail dress she wore to celebrate her 30th birthday. Basically, the dress was less than six months old, from a collection that’s not meant to be available until autumn. And not only that she?s the only celeb to get her hands on a piece of Hedi Slimane’s final collection for Saint Laurent. Because you know what’s better than donning your fresh spring duds before the season even begins? Skipping spring altogether and gunning straight for autumn 2016.
