Yes, ladies, you read that correctly. Overalls, my all-time favorite trend from the '90s, are making their way back in style. Now, before you get all oh heck no on me, check out the way these celebs have styled their dungarees. Turns out they can work in a bunch of different situations.

For Saturday afternoon with family: Alessandra Ambrosio took hers out for a spin one weekend, pairing them with two layered tank tops. She added classic Ray-Ban Clubmaster sunglasses, a structured shoulder bag and wedge sandals, which gave the look a more mature feel.

If you're going out with girlfriends: Actress Brie Larson hit the Sundance channel premiere of "The Spectacular Now" sporting a pair over coveralls with a silky button-down. She teamed the outfit with beat-up combat boots, but I think a chic pump would have been a wiser move for girls' night out, pushing the style into cool-girl dressy territory.

Date night with your partner: "Revenge"'s Ashley Madekwe attended a Topshop/Topman event in these patterned dungarees from the brand. Simple jewelry, a black clutch and strappy sandals allow her overalls to be the center of attention.

What do gals think? I'm a huge fan of Ashley Madekwe, but who do you feel pulled off the trend the best? Are you inspired to try out overalls? Discuss!

    Our favorite platinum blondes of all time

    When Madonna posted an image of herself wearing a full on Game of Thrones Khaleesi costume on Instagram last week we weren’t exactly surprised—this is the woman who rolled into the Grammy Awards wearing a tuxedo and a grill earlier this winter, so why not celebrate the Jewish holiday of Purim with a leather corset and a pair of tiny dragons? Still, we were hypnotized by her white-blonde, braided Daenerys Targaryen hair. Functioning as a bleached out cultural weather vane of sorts, it tapped into multiple obsessions at once—the return of "Game of Thrones" to HBO, spring’s new extreme hair lengths and, most notably, fashion’s current platinum mania. Our own love of ice-blonde hair—which transforms any look from everyday to extraordinary—has been well documented of late, but last night’s Game of Thrones premiere sent our platinum fever into overdrive. In celebration of fashion’s favorite hair color, a look at the best platinum moments in history.
