Diane Kruger, Elizabeth Olsen, and Rachel Zoe were among those who turned out for last night's Chanel and Charles Finch pre-Oscar dinner at Madeo in LA. They were joined by adorable couple Freido Pinto and Dev Patel, as well as Lily Collins, Rachel Bilson, and more. Diane, Elizabeth, and Rachel were all decked out in Chanel ensembles. It was one of the last pre-Academy Awards bashes that went down in Hollywood ahead of today's big ceremony. We'll be live from the Oscars red carpet this afternoon, so make sure to come back to PopSugar at 5:30 p.m. EST/2:30 p.m. PST!
Drew Barrymore was among the stars who turned out last night for the launch of Marni for H&M in LA. She was joined at Lloyd Wright’s Sowden House by Marni designer Consuelo Castiglioni and friends like Jessica Chastain, Freida Pinto, and Rashida Jones. Director Sofia Coppola was on hand as well. Sofia's short film for the Marni and H&M collaboration was released earlier this month. The piece features Imogen Poots, an actress also in the new Marni for H&M ads, and the music of Bryan Ferry, who took the stage last night too. The bash was held well in advance of the collection's arrival in stores on March 8. Drew's currently hanging out in LA after making a cross crounty trip to chat up her movie Big Miracle, which hit theaters on Feb. 3.
Kellan Lutz arrived on the red carpet at his Immortals premiere in LA last night holding hands with his girlfriend, actress Sharni Vinson. Kellan and Sharni reportedly started dating back in July, and weren't shy about showing some PDA last night, sneaking in a kiss as they arrived. The duo were on hand to join Kellan's costars, including Freida Pinto, Henry Cavill, and Stephen Dorff for the big debut at Nokia Live, which drew a large crowd of fans and spectators.
Freida, who arrived in a gorgeous Antonio Berardi dress and Chopard jewelry, walked the carpet solo but changed into a short party dress to reunite with her real-life leading man, Dev Patel, at the afterparty. We spoke with Freida about the modernized Greek epic and her cast of very handsome costars. Freida dished on her admiration for her love interest in the film, Henry. Henry, who has been shooting Man of Steel in recent months, has been showing off his remarkable abs on the set of the Superman reboot lately. Last night, he told us Immortals required just as much physical preparation. In fact, he said the movie's director, Tarsem, told him a six-pack just wasn't good enough — he needed an eight pack for the role! For more from the premiere, stay tuned for today's PopSugar Rush!
I have yet to see any of the films that showed at the London Film Festival last week; however, the fashion on the red carpet has been anything but disappointing. Last night we saw Keira Knightley wearing a dramatic crisscross cutout dress to the Dangerous Method premiere, and Minnie Driver wowed the crowd in a shimmering satin grey gown with an open detail in the sleeve. Also, earlier in the week Freida Pinto looked beautiful in a sexy back-revealing catsuit at the Trishna film premiere. Shop more cutout evening and cocktail looks below and leave a comment letting me know which of these three styles you think you'd look best in?
The red carpet carried some serious star power this past weekend, with Freida Pinto, Ashley Greene, Salma Hayek, Elizabeth Olsen, and Madonna hitting the red carpet for their respective movie premieres. We applaud Elizabeth Olsen's choice of ethereal Chanel couture while Salma and Freida played to their curves. Ashley Greene showed one of Spring 2012's biggest trends when she wore a peplum dress from Givenchy. Missed the pics? Click to see all who wore what at the weekend's movie premieres.
The Elle Women in Hollywood Tribute, held inside LA's Four Seasons Hotel last night, brought out many A-list stars to toast honorees Jennifer Aniston, Barbra Streisand, Michelle Pfeiffer, Viola Davis, Evan Rachel Wood, Freida Pinto, Naomi Watts, Elizabeth Olsen, and DreamWorks studio head Stacey Snider. Jennifer Aniston brought boyfriend Justin Theroux along for the bash, and she looked amazing in a Kaufmanfranco dress. Elizabeth and Freida, meanwhile, picked Calvin Klein dresses for the occasion.
Many of the ladies paid tribute to legend award-winner Barbra, though Reese reserved her comments for Jennifer. Reese raved about Jennifer, saying, "You just want to get your nails done with her, and you want to make out with her at the same time. At least I do — and that's what we do sometimes on Saturdays." Reese also had time to say hi to her This Means War costar and pal, Chelsea Handler, as well as Robin Wright. Katherine Heigl made it an adorable date night with her husband, Josh Kelley, and Rachel Zoe stepped out in a long, flowy gown. We caught up with some of the ladies on the gray carpet before the event began. Naomi spoke about how amazing it was to shoot with Leonardo DiCaprio on their upcoming movie, J. Edgar, and joked that unlike some actors she's worked with, she likes him just as much as his work. Katherine Heigl admitted that she was inspired to act by Jennifer, and Michelle said she was so honored to be there — stay tuned for more later today on PopSugar Rush!
This week's fashion crowd is all breezy and bright — capitalizing on high Summer with an arsenal of little dresses, cutoffs, and flowy maxis. We spied a '70s-chic Rachel Zoe, a neon-clad Freida Pinto, and Olivia Palermo channeling the season's call to easy sophistication. Nothing overly complicated in this group — just effortless warm-weather renditions we're now out to replicate. Click through for this week's style-inspiring top 10.
James Franco Has Freida Pinto, Tom Felton, and a Mystery Date by His Side For Rise of the Planet of the Apes
James Franco hugged his costar Freida Pinto as he arrived at last night's LA premiere of Rise of the Planet of the Apes. James flew back to California from Detroit, where he's currently shooting Oz: The Great and Powerful, for the debut of the science-fiction film. The actor also brought a date to the event and left with his arm around the leggy redhead after completing his red-carpet duties. James announced his split from Ahna O'Reilly, his girlfriend of five years, in a new interview with Playboy. Freida, his onscreen leading lady, looked stunning in an electric green Juan Carlos Obando gown and Brian Atwood pumps. She was without her longtime boyfriend, Dev Patel, on the red carpet, but Tom Felton had two of his loved ones on hand to support his latest film — his girlfriend, Jade Gordon, and his Harry Potter costar Rupert Grint. Rupert even arrived to the premiere wearing a shirt that read "I ♥ Tom Felton"! Stay tuned for today's PopSugar Rush for even more from the premiere.
