Back in February, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana sent models down the runway decked out in star prints ranging from fitted bustier dresses to floaty maxis.

Who knew that by the summer it would be the hottest trend around, with everyone donning that galactic print on red carpets around the world.

Asian actress Wei Tang was the first to start the obsession during Cannes Film Festival back in May.

Lily Allen and Jessica Alba dressed their baby bumps in the star print, Evan Rachel Wood and Solange opted for star-print pants, and, just this weekend, Helen Mirren (much to your displeasure) wore the now-famous Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2011 star print dress on the red carpet.

The trend wasn’t just confined to the red carpet, either: magazines around the world caught the fever with supermodels and actresses wearing the Dolce & Gabbana star print in their editorials.
