Elle magazine hosted its annual Women in Hollywood Tribute at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills last night, and gorgeous British women rubbed shoulders with their American counterparts. Cat Deeley kept it classic in an LBD and L'Oreal Paris Legend Award recipient Julie Andrews was elegant in her black floor-length frock. All five November cover stars were in attendance, with Renee Zellweger dazzling in bright red, Emily Blunt cute in a nude number and Katie Holmes daring in a sheer black outfit alongside fellow cover stars Julianne Moore and Zoe Saldana. John Krasinski joined his fiancée to her celebrate, and Emily told Elle:
"I feel the fear of the business creep under my skin in L.A. in a way that it doesn’t in England. It’s funny – I feel like beauty is in the eye of the beholder, unless you’re in Hollywood! It’s shameful how you have to look a certain way. Women are simply not allowed to grow old gracefully. That’s why I love playing character parts, because I’m not pigeonholed into trying to remain young forever to play the ingénue or romantic lead."

Josh Hartnett was looking tanned and gorgeous at an Armani party at New York Fashion Week last night, one of the last events during another busy day at Bryant Park. Rachel Bilson added a splash of colour to all the dark gothic outfits we've seen around the shows in a multicoloured dress, showing her recognised sense of style as she's an InStyle US columnist! Mary-Kate Olsen showed off her legs in a loose mini dress, DJ Leigh Lezark showed off plenty of skin in a lace dress, while actress Mary-Louise Parker kept it classic to watch the shows in her black dress. Rachel sat next to Ugly Betty's Becki Newton and giggled through one of the shows, while Estelle, Mickey Rourke, Devon Aoki, Ciara, Kelly Rowland, Amandy Bynes and many more celebs were spotted at the events!

After arriving looking befittingly glamorous, the stars certainly had a good time during this year's Glamour Women Of The Year awards in London, and then left looking perhaps a little less glam! Although nobody had to be carried out like Lily Allen did last year, Alan Carr, James Corden and Alexa Chung were among those looking wide eyed as they left the venue. James and Jack Black teamed up during the ceremony to perform a version of Kanye West's "Gold Digger" — check out a snippet of their performance under the cut — while Amanda Seyfried was apparently pleasantly surprised by her man Dominic Cooper's appearance at the event.

Loads of stars got dressed up to attend the Glamour Women Of The Year Awards at Berkeley Square Gardens last night. Kylie Minogue continued the celebratory mood since her birthday last week by picking up the big award of the night, Woman of the Year, as well as the Entrepreneur gong. British favourites Alexa Chung and Fearne Cotton won the Presenter and Radio Personality awards respectively, and Katy Perry was named Newcomer of the Year.
Acting awards went to Michelle Ryan, Amanda Seyfried, Becki Newton and Joanna Page, all of whom looked stunning on the red carpet, while Girls Aloud were unable to collect their Band of the Year award as they were busy performing on tour. Cheryl Cole couldn't pick up her TV Personality of the Year award in person, and Kanye West wasn't there to collect his Man of the Year gong, but Adele and Estelle both turned up to receive their awards.
Plenty of gorgeous men turned up to support the Women of the Year, including Mocano Grand Prix winner Jenson Button and Dizzee Rascal, who is number one in the singles chart. James Corden took time out from filming Gulliver's Travels to show off his beard at the ceremony, while smouldering Ed Westwick showed once again why he'll be perfect as Heathcliff.
To see the full list of winners, plus loads of photos of all the stars including Adele, Alan Carr, Dermot O'Leary, Becki Newton, Claudia Winkleman, Pixie Geldof, Jo Wood, Kirsty Gallacher, Mark Ronson, Michelle Ryan, Russell Tovey, Amanda Seyfried, Estelle, Rachel Stevens, Joanna Page, Abigail Clancy, Paul Sculfor, and the boys from Blue, just read more
Mary-Kate Olsen, Ginnifer Goodwin, Diane Kruger and Becki Newton were looking stunning in glamorous dresses at The Metropolitan Opera's 125th Anniversary Gala in New York last night.

Mary-Kate's bright red lips were repeated on Claudia Schiffer, while Becki and Emily shone in sequins. Kanye West turned up with his lady Amber Rose, and the men all looked dashing in their tuxes, but who do you think was the best dressed woman?

Madonna's directorial debut Filth And Wisdom was screened in New York last night, and attracted a rather celeb-packed audience! Gossip Girl castmembers Chace Crawford, Ed Westwick and Taylor Momsen arrived looking smart for the event, and Ugly Betty stars America Ferrera, Vanessa Williams and Becki Newton also looked glam on the red carpet. Lindsay Lohan also posed for the cameras, sticking to the clothing colour of choice for the evening — black.
Naomi Watts and the movie's star Eugene Hutz brought a pop of purple to proceedings, and Ed wore a rather eye-catching tartan blazer that would be most befitting of Chuck! When I polled you, the majority of you said you'd like to see this movie, and I have to admit I'm rather curious too. I wonder what the audience thought last night?

A whole host of stars from the acting world came out yesterday to attend, and perform at, the 16th Annual Alzheimer's benefit A Night At Sardi's in Beverly Hills.

Henson also in attendance at the fundraiser.
Saffron Burrows, who's film The Bank Job is number one at the UK box office, also took to the stage in a presenting role, as did Portia de Rossi, and Michelle Pfeiffer looked beautiful at the cocktails. Many of the stars commented on the sad news of Patrick Swayze's battle against pancreatic cancer, with Jason Alexander summing up what is surely on all our minds: he said "this is shocking news, we wish him well".
