Julia Roberts’ Style Confessions: Shunning Trends, What She Wears for Date Night with Her Husband and More

When we met Julia Roberts in a quaint hotel in Verona, Italy — where the award-winning actress and mother of three was on hand to celebrate her new campaign for the European hosiery brand Calzedonia and later attend the company’s annual runway “Leg Show” — she wore a variation on what’s become her signature style: black-and-white, which a menswear twist.

“I do love black and white,” PEOPLE’s reigning Most Beautiful Woman told us of her go-to look in an interview for our new issue, on newsstands Friday. That day, her outfit consisted of tortoiseshell frames by Paul Smith, a white silk blouse by Equipment, a short black skirt by Givenchy, fishnet tights by Calzedonia and black patent brogues by Church’s (shown below, though she switched into booties later). “I love something about the simplicity and elegance of it — and it’s modern.”

And that’s not all she had to say about her style: The star (who, in addition to her Calzedonia partnership is also a beauty ambassador for Lancôme) revealed more fashion confessions during our chat, which took place in the same town Shakespeare had set Romeo + Juliet and just steps away from ancient ruins.

“I find fashion incredibly valuable and interesting,” she said during our discussion. Scroll down to find out the actress’s take on trends, date night style and so much more.

I think trends are …
“A game I don’t have enough time to play. I have to stick with my classics.”

One thing I put on that always makes me feel amazing is …
“A scarf. It makes me feel cozy and secure.”

When I wear beautiful jewelry, like the 52-carat Chopard emerald at the Cannes Film Festival, I feel …
“Sort of terrified! Like, what if I lost it, or someone just pulled it off my neck? But I think I was surrounded by 75 invisible bodyguards who would protect me. It was so gorgeous.”

When it comes to date night I wear….
“I have so many responses to that, and most of them are wildly inappropriate. Probably something that my husband likes. I get dressed more for him than for me.”

When I see photos of my style in the ’90s, I think …“There are a few minor cringes here and there, but I think for the most part I feel relatively unscathed. Am I kidding myself? I might be kidding myself. But let me just live in that thought.”

My relationship with my stylist Elizabeth Stewart is …“Amazing. She is not afraid to disagree with me or force me to try on things that I don’t want to try on. She’s incredible.”

When it comes to shopping…“I’m not a great shopper, actually. That’s where the great relationships I have with people like Riccardo Tisci have been helpful. He understands me, and he understands what I like to wear. But the first designer I ever felt any kinship or any relationship with was Giorgio Armani. He is just one of the kindest people and such a timeless, incredible, classic designer. And because I’m so attracted to menswear, I was really attracted to him to start with. He really vaulted me into the idea of what fashion could mean, and so I’m very appreciative.”

If I could have one fashion dream, it would be…
“In today’s world, I wish we had the interest in, perhaps, going back in time a little bit and dressing up to travel. Dressing up to go to dinner. Things like that, which I miss. I think, well that was kind of nicer when we did things like that.”

I love a good piece of eyewear …
“I do. Most of my eyewear is Paul Smith. It makes sense that I would gravitate toward that brand because of my love of menswear. I think you shouldn’t wear the same eyeglasses everyday, so I try to change it up, but they’re all variations on the same theme.”

I own too many …“Perfect white shirts. Everybody makes a great white shirt and they get you because they’re each a little bit different from each other, and you’re like, ‘Oh, but this color! Oh, but the fabric of this one!’ Dolce & Gabbana makes one of my favorites ones that I have, I have a great Hermes one — but just one — and I have a lot of Givenchy in my closet.”

I love a good pair of tights because …“It always makes the difference—that little bit of extra effort.”

My favorite type of shoe is …
“I have a brogue addiction. Church’s makes really comfortable ones.”

My ‘Me Time’ is …“The morning. I’ve always been a morning person. Ninety percent of what I’m going to accomplish in the day is probably done before 11 a.m. I like to get up way before the kids, which is getting harder and harder because they are morning people too. I like to just wake up and get some things done for myself and make breakfast.”

Yara Shahidi Vows Not to Break the Internet With Her Red Carpet Looks: ‘I Appreciate Baby Steps’

At 17, Yara Shahidi has carved out a style worthy of longtime red carpet veterans. Her looks are adventurous yet fun, aspirational yet achievable, and daring yet never veer toward shocking territory.

And Shahidi says it’s going to stay that way.

“I appreciate baby steps,” the star of the Emmy-nominated comedy series Black-ish, future Harvard student, and face of Fossil’s new Fossil Q Venture watch tells PeopleStyle. “I appreciate stepping outside my comfort zone, but at the same time I still want it to come from a natural place of growth, rather than stepping out to be different. There’s no need . I have a lot of other years to do that. Also, being 17, there’s so much room to have fun and not be conventional.

Her “baby steps” are taken with the help of stylist Jason Bolden. Their latest look for the 2017 MTV VMAs featured a one-shoulder Zimmermann gown in Shahidi’s go-to hue: “My favorite color on a day-to-day is just yellow,” she says. “And I love a great mustard!”

Together, Bolden and Shahidi make sure an outfit has two things: “It’s something that I not only feel comfortable in, but really establishes my presence,” says the star, who describes her looks as unorthodox and loud. “What I really appreciate about clothing is just its ability to help you take up space. When you put on a bold color, you can’t help but fill up a room.”

Some of her favorite looks recently include the Fear of God sweats and Libertine sparkly shirt combination she wore to the 2017 Teen Choice Awards (“It’s so unabashedly me”); the purple belted Elie Saab flouncy dress she wore to Black Girls Rock (“Purple has always been my favorite color”); and the high-neck Chanel blouse and wide-leg jeans combination she chose for a Chanel event (“What’s fun is figuring out the small details that make an outfit different and the neckline is one of them”).

“I think this speaks to the idea that I just want to have fun,” she says of her red carpet choices. “It’s always a reflection of who I am in that moment.”

Lately, she’s also applied her playful attitude for fashion to accessories, specifically when it comes to earrings. “I don’t know if many people picked up on the fact that there have been multiple events in the past couple months where I’ve worn mismatched earrings,” she says (like for her second look at the VMAs, shown above).

“But it depends on my hair, too,” she says. “Sometimes it’s huge and takes over. Sometimes it’s braided. Sometimes it’s doing certain things. But it really comes down to the look—sometimes accessories make it and sometimes I’m going to let this outfit speak for itself.”

Another accessory she loves? A good watch, which makes sense since she’s now the face of Fossil. “I’m somebody who collected watches when I was little, and I have always enjoyed the importance of time,” says the star, who now uses the Fossil Q Venture, a digital smartwatch that tracks your activities and syncs to your smartphone. “I wear one a lot when I travel, it’s a way to keep myself grounded.”

Ultimately, when it comes to fashion, she says she’s still figuring it all out.

“Just looking at the past couple years being on Black-ish, my style has evolved,” she says. “It really comes from taking small risks and figuring out what works and what doesn’t. For me, the colors that I’ve worn have changed and the cuts of shirt that I wear have changed—but I have never sacrificed comfort.”

The One Thing Sarah Hyland Does Every Day That Gives Her Confidence

Sarah Hyland has dealt with a lot in the public eye — growing up on TV, defining red carpet looks, health scares, romances, breakups and social media posts that have gone viral. And among it all, she’s remained completely confident.

Her secret, she says, is an easy one — own who you are.

“I think confidence is important no matter where you are in life, whether you have a fan base or not,” the Modern Family star, 26, tells PEOPLE during a phone conversation this week. “It just kind of gives you the actual confidence to move on in life and be proud of yourself and who you are as a human being.” 

One way she gained so much of it is in her style choices, whether she’s dressing for the Emmys red carpet or her daily workout. “Fashion for me is one of the ways that I show off my confidence,” she says. “I feel like I like to play with fashion and it puts me in the mindset. As soon as I get dressed for the day I feel like I can do anything.” 

Now, she’s sharing some of her favorite ways to get dressed for fall by designing a new collection for Candie’s — she’s the creative director of the line. Her third season launches in Kohl’s stores this fall.

“It’s a really fun collection that you are able to wear whether you’re going back to school, back to work or off to college,” she says. “It’s for the everyday woman and I’m really excited for people to see it.” 

And it incorporates some pieces she loves most. “I like to put a lot of my personal style into the design,” she says. “The color palette for the fall season is very much my style, like the cranberry reds, the olive greens, the rose gold and the dusty gold.”

Her favorite pieces include a plaid shirt (“I’ve always loved plaid and you can really match it with anything,” she says), a leather jacket with floral embroidery (“It has that edgy look but it’s also flirty, fun and girly,” she says) and a pair of sequin-covered pants she calls her mermaid jeans (“They are so fun and such a statement piece,” she says).

Savannah Chrisley says her new NBA boyfriend Luke Kennard is “one of the most honest, caring human beings”

New couple Savannah Chrisley and recently drafted Detroit Piston Luke Kennard are navigating having a relationship in the public eye — and that involves figuring out their work-life balance as a pair.

It turns out, the secret to the Chrisley Knows Best star, 19, and her 21-year-old new beau’s romance is carving out time for each other in the midst of their busy schedules.

“We make time for each other and we both understand each other’s careers,” Chrisley tells PEOPLE during a conversation about her first clothing line, Faith Over Fear. “We can go months without seeing each other and it would be okay. It’s just the understanding that we both have that our careers come first — I mean it’s pretty great.” 

In fact, she conducted the phone interview while on her way to meet Kennard. “I’m trekking now to see him,” she says. “My dad has always told me you need to be with someone who you are extremely on the same level with. And that is the truth. We both have our own things going on. He has his career. I have mine. But he’s just one of the most honest, caring, human beings there is.”

Kennard is so caring in fact, that the newly-gone-pro basketball player is figuring out ways to support her new fashion endeavor, which debuted on HSN earlier this week

“He wants to come to my launch and it kind of made my day because it shows he’s getting ready for the season to start, and he is still gonna make time for things that I have going on and that’s extremely important,” she says. He even tweeted his support of the line, urging women to pick up a few pieces.

“When you are in the industry that we’re in, you have to make time, you have to be supportive,” adds Chrisley. “At the end of the day if you’re not going to be supportive of me and the things I do, then I’d just rather be single.” 

So, has the stylish southern star worked her fashion magic on her boyfriend? “You know, his agent told me that his style has increased drastically since I came along,” she says with a laugh. 

“He as into shopping as I am — like we’re both addicted to it,” Chrisley adds. “So we’ll go somewhere and I’ll grab stuff for him and he’ll be like, ‘Alright, I want it.’ My dad just sent me back a pair of Gucci shoes for Luke, so he loves high-end brands. He loves looking good.” 

Savannah Chrisley Debuts HSN Line Today: ‘Without My Dad, I Couldn’t Have Made This Happen’

Savannah Chrisley is officially a designer! 

The 19-year-old star of the reality show Chrisley Knows Best — which focuses on the over-the-top lifestyle of her family, including her eccentric real estate developer father Todd Chrisleyoriginally announced her plans to create a clothing line in October, and a preview of her debut collection officially drops on HSN.com today.

She named the lineup of loose-fitting slogan tees, distressed denim and shoulder-baring cutout tops after one of her favorite sayings: Faith Over Fear. “That’s just something that I have lived by for awhile now,” Chrisley tells PEOPLE. The goal, she says, is to create modest clothing for all ages, while still being trendy.

“I feel like so many people, especially my generation and younger, we let our fear consume us so much that we just don’t purse our dreams,” she explains of how she landed on the name. “So for me, let my faith be bigger than my fear of something not happening. That’s my reasoning: I’m going to let my faith I have in this project be so much bigger than the fear I have in it not working out that I’m just gonna let it succeed.” 

In fact, Faith Over Fear is a saying that’s so important to her that she wrote it on one of her pieces — in her own handwriting — and incorporated some of her other favorite sayings into the collection as well, including Believer, Always and Forever and Courageous. “For me, it’s just a great reminder if you’re having tough day,” she says. “Little words can truly change your day so that’s how I incorporated it. I’m saying this is because I’m speaking from experience. I did not have an easy ride. Middle school and high school were not easy for me, so there were little things that would help.”

Aside from her handwritten slogan tees, the collection includes a few other items true to her signature style, like tie-dye shirts (she previewed one of her designs on Instagram, above) and a leather jacket, which also has the words Faith Over Fear written on the back. “Anyone who knows me knows I’m obsessed with leather jackets,” she says, adding that you’ll see her modeling some of her favorites on the upcoming season of Chrisley Knows Best, as well as on her Instagram.

The only person who could possibly be more excited about the line is her dad, Todd Chrisley. “He has been absolutely amazing,” Savannah says. “My dad has been the biggest supporter of me throughout. He’s my best friend and without him I couldn’t have made it happen. He loves all of the pieces I have in the line. I just love all the fabrics and so does he. So he’s extremely happy with it.” 

And her new boyfriend, 21-year-old NBA draftee and new Detroit Piston Luke Kennard, is also “extremely supportive,” says Chrisley. “He wants to come to my launch and it kind of made my day because it shows he’s getting ready for the season to start, and he is still gonna make time for things that I have going on and that’s extremely important,” she says. “When you are in the industry that we’re in, you have to make time, you have to be supportive. At the end of the day if you’re not gonna be supportive of me and the things I do then I just rather be single.”

Of course, this initial debut is just the start — more pieces will drop on July 27th on HSN.com and she is already planning second collection. “It’s going to be pretty awesome,” she says. “I’m looking forward to it.”

These $3 No-Slip Socks Are the Best No-Slip Socks, Hands-Down

If you’ve ever bought a pair of loafers or flats that completely cut up your foot when worn without socks or have had a pair of no-slip socks that, in fact, do slip, then this story is for you. 1) We’ve been there. 2) We have a solution.

The answer is Keds 5-pack of Extra Low Cut Non-Slip Liner Socks

I discovered these feet-saving treasures only recently. I had just bought a fabulous very-fashion-girl pair of loafers that looked amazing (obviously) but gave me bloody heels (obviously). And, after a series of Band-Aid fails — I left a very sorry trail all over N.Y.C. — I decided that better cushioning was not only a want, but an absolute need.

I ended up finding these Keds Low Cut Non-Slip Liner Socks by chance, after a friend said she wore these with her sneakers in the summer to avoid VSL (Visible Sock Lines). I looked down at her feet astonished. I saw no VSL. I saw no bloody heels. Could it be? 

I immediately purchased two five-packs at $15 each, which as the number cruncher that I am, I figured provided me with 10 pairs of socks for $3 each (math = good). And I assure you, it’s well worth the low investment: The non-slip socks actually do not slip (this is major because so many non-slips actually do!) and they have no VSL when you’re wearing low-top sneakers, loafers or flats. Plus, they come in an array of hues to match your footwear to provide further concealment, like white, nude, black and a range of pretty pastels, as seen above.

I wore them to work, right here at the PEOPLE offices with my formerly-treacherous-and-now-super-comfortable-fashion-girl loafers, and everyone was all, “How are you wearing those without socks?!” And I said, “Ah, don’t be fooled. I am.” Now, they’re hooked on Keds, too.
