Lady Gaga, Evan Rachel Wood, and Ginnifer Goodwin do houndstooth three different ways.

Leave it to Lady Gaga to start a MEGA-TREND. We’d like to say that she’s the main inspiration behind the houndstooth mania sweeping celeb-u-land these days, but the two-tone check print is actually a big trend pattern for fall. (She totally kick-started it with that ALL-OVER HOUNDSTOOTH EXTRAVAGANZA she unveiled when hosting The View this summer, though.) Houndstooth has been making subtle appearances on the red carpet recently, such as on Evan Rachel Wood’s feet at the premiere of her new film The Ides of March at the Venice Film Festival. Seriously, aren’t those shoes TO DIE?! They’re just the right amount of houndstooth for kicking up a basic black and white lady-suit or for tipping out layered patterns (à la Gaga). We’re also really loving an edgier take on the houndstooth trend courtesy of Ginnifer Goodwin. The body-HUGGING Herve Leger minidress she wore to the Something Borrowed premiere took the houndstooth print to a whole new level with its alternating houndstooth stripes. Does it work? CHECK.
