Before the Coco Rochas and Chanel Imans of the modeling world, there were "The Big Six," a crop of supermodels who dominated all things hair, fashion, and makeup in the late 1980s and early 1990s. These days, actresses and pop stars often fill the positions left behind by these powerhouse models. So, let's take a trip down memory lane to see how much these six ladies have — and haven't — changed.

Emma Roberts and Rachel Bilson got dressed up for the Chanel NRDC Celebration of Art, Nature, and Technology dinner in LA last night. It was a star-studded affair as Tobey Maguire and his wife, Jennifer Meyer, as well as Cindy Crawford and her husband, Rande Gerber, and Pharrell Williams and his fiancée, Helen Lasichanh, were in attendance. Although Cindy, Tobey, and Pharrell had their significant others along, Rachel and Emma stepped out solo for the evening celebrating environmental action. Despite being without her boyfriend, Evan Peters, Emma revealed that she enjoyed the night out, writing on Twitter, "Such a beautiful dinner with Chanel and NRDC."
Emma did have Evan's support a few weeks ago when she took the stage for Glamour's "These Girls" event in NYC, where she shared a written essay detailing her efforts to lead a normal college life. Rachel also got in a bit of romantic time with her beau, Hayden Christensen, during a bikini-filled getaway to Barbados in April.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner showed love yesterday afternoon at the John Varvatos 10th annual Stuart House Benefit. Ben and Jen were the day's cochairs, and they arrived together, posing for pictures separately and side by side, before heading into the event and taking the stage to help raise funds for Stuart House, a rape treatment center. Ben welcomed the time with his wife, telling reporters that he's been relaxing with his family since winning best picture for Argo. He said, "I've been able to really just enjoy my good fortune in the last couple of weeks and sit back and kind of just take it in and not do anything, just eat ice cream on the couch. It's been a really nice time to hang out with my wife and that sort of thing, so we're just enjoying it."
They were among the many celebrity couples who turned out for the bash. Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber looked right at home in the California sunshine, as did Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber. Joe Manganiello made the rounds with girlfriend Bridget Peters, though Nina Dobrev was without her boyfriend and Vampire Diaries costar Ian Somerhalder.

Nina and Ian are in California during a break from working on The Vampire Diaries in Atlanta. The Vampire Diaries cast was at Paley Fast on Saturday, but yesterday's highlight for Ian was meeting Alice Cooper. He tweeted about the magnitude of meeting his former idol, writing, "What a weekend . . . I use to air guitar that dude when I was a youngster." Nina, meanwhile, had another connection to Rachel Zoe. At the Paley panel, Nina donned a black dress from the Rachel Zoe Collection. Nina told us that she was hopping on a plane right after the Varvatos event to return to her and Ian's Georgia set.

He traveled in Rome with pal Lorene Scafaria, then went on to Greece. Ashton partied in Athens with a brunette, but he's since wrapped up the fun.

The evening gave a chance for ARod to go public with Torrie Wilson, his new blond girlfriend with a history as a star in the WWE. The foursome are fresh off a vacation in Cabo, where they hung out with George Clooney and his own WWE lady, Stacy Keibler.
Over the course of their 30-year career, Duran Duran has had a long history of including models in their videos, so it just makes sense that they would continue on with the tradition. For the band's just-released "Girl Panic!" short, supermodels including Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Eva Herzigova, Helena Christensen, and Yasmin Le Bon take a turn on the instruments. Sure, there's plenty of girl-on-girl action as a result, along with groupies galore, but there are also a ton of gorgeous, edgy beauty looks to inspire. From Naomi's sexy bedhead style to a covetable crimped ponytail (around the 5:04 mark) to a variety of must-have manicures, there's something here that will make an impression on you.

Christina Hendricks posed with husband Geoffrey Arend, as did Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka. NPH was impressed with what he saw, basically tweeting a rave review. He wrote, "Just saw the premiere of Cirque du Soleil's new show Iris. It's ammazing! If you come to Hollywood, it is a must see! Best show in years!" Recently single Joe Manganiello was looking hunky before the show began, and he was able to mingle with some other single stars like Vanessa Hudgens.
