If you're anything like us, you'll have a hard time deciding who was the best dressed star this week. Heck, we couldn't even pick between Emma Stoneand Rachel McAdams at the special screening of Columbia Pictures' Aloha in Hollywood. The redhead opted for a Emilio Pucci fringe dress with a white structured jacket, while the blonde wowed in a daring Self-Portrait number.
At the Magnolia Pictures' Results premiere in NYC, Cobie Smulders caught our eye in a feminine watercolor-print dress. A cobalt blue clutch acted alone in the accessories department, but the pretty full skirt still impressed none the less.
During the final days of the Cannes Film Festival, there were two standout red carpet looks. First, we were totally enchanted by Sienna Miller's Cinderella-like Gucci gown. Then, Marion Cotillard did something totally unexpected by wearing the only mini dress to grace the A-list event. (If you've got it, flaunt it, right?) Her Christian Dior Couture frock rivaled the floor-sweeping gowns in France despite a shorter hemline.

From fashion week to red carpet premieres, tulle skirts have been given the stamp of approval by a long list of celebrities and street-style stars. While these events often call for designer threads, we're showing you how to create the same on-trend look at home without breaking the bank.
Scroll below for two DIY projects (one with and one without sewing) and get to work!
Method 1: Like a Pro
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
- Straight Pins
- Tulle (Suggested: 4-6 Yards)
- Sewing Machine (or Needle and Thread)
Moda Mob enlisted fashion designer Michael Costello to break down this easy-to-follow method.
MEASUREMeasure the waist with elastic. This will be the desired size for your skirt. Allow an extra half-inch for room.
CUT AND PIN THE ENDSCut the elastic at the desired size. Pin the ends together to form the band for your skirt.
GATHER TULLEGather the top of the tulle in your sewing machine. Make sure the fabric is pre-cut to the skirts desired length.
BEGIN SEWINGSew gathered tulle. Stop and re-gather tulle under needle and sew again. Repeat until you have about 26 inches.
MEASURE TO ELASTICMake sure you've done enough gathering and sewing by lining up your tulle with your waistband.
SEW TO THE WAISTBANDAfter you're sure you have enough fabric ruched up, unpin your waistband and pin the elastic to the tulle. Line up the two under the sewing machine and stitch the waistband across the gathering line. (Tip: Repeat steps 3-6 for any additional layers of tulle you want to add.)
SEW WAISTBAND SHUTOnce you've connected the elastic and tulle all the way around, sew the two ends of the elastic together and enjoy your new hand-crafted skirt!
Method 2: No-Sew

WHAT YOU'LL NEED
- A Belt
- Measuring Tape
Even if you're DIY-challenged, this no-sew method from blogger Miss Kris is a stylish no-brainer.
CUT YOUR TULLEFold your tulle in half and cut out several 2 inch strips about 4 feet in length. (Tip: You'll need a LOT of tulle, so cut more than you think you might need.)
ATTACH TO BELTTake one of your tulle strips and using a simple loop knot technique (over, under and through), attach the tulle to your belt.
REPEAT AND PUSHRepeat the loop knot technique down the entire length of the belt. Make sure to push the fabric to the originating side of the belt to guarantee a full skirt without holes.
WEAR!Fasten the belt around your waist and channel your inner-Carrie Brandshaw! (Tip: Although it will require a little bit of hand-sewing, use a color-coordinating elastic waistband like the previous DIY above if you don't want to dedicate a leather belt to this project.)
