We love our little black dresses year round, but with Summer just around the corner, we've naturally got little white dresses on our brains. And who better to turn to for inspiration on how to style them than some of the most fashionable famous faces? We're talking about Eva Longoria, Kerry Washington, Jamie Chung, Olivia Munn, and the list goes on. Right now we're really feeling white dresses with white pumps, but we're also open to classic pairings like LWDs with black, metallic, and nude footwear. Step inside to see how 30 celebrities styled theirs and to draw inspiration for your next LWD moment.
Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon kept the party going at the Time 100 Gala in NYC last night. The two friends, who were named two of the magazine's 100 most influential people in the world this year, were joined by Justin's wife, a Tom Ford-clad Jessica Biel, and a Lanvin-wearing Claire Danes. Also out were honorees Lena Dunham and Vice President Joe Biden, who took the chance to work the room of Hollywood stars. Other guests included Amy Poehler, Steven Spielberg, Daniel Day-Lewis, and Christina Aguilera, who performed at the event and hobnobbed with Lena on the red carpet.
Inside the bash, the stars wasted no time celebrating the honorees. Justin and Jimmy danced around the room and goofed off with Amy and musician Frank Ocean. Lena commented on getting on the Time 100 list, saying that the first person she told about being on the list was her father. She said, "I called my dad because he was a layout editor at Time in the 1970s, so I was super psyched, and I wanted to tell him that I was making good in his former institution. I heard there was a drinks cart when he worked there." Meanwhile, Daniel, who picked up the best actor award at this year's Oscars, commented that he is "more than mildly astonished" that he landed on the list.
It's not just Brits that love them some Smythson, it appears that all over the States, this classic UK brand that's been around for over 125 years has been ever popular on the red carpet. For example, last night in New York City, actress Olivia Munn carried the Floating Box Clutch (£595) in gold satin with gold trim to the 2013 Tine 100 Gala. Last week, Amanda Peet carried the same bag in black suede to a premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, whilst Hilary Swank also carried an Envelope Clutch in gold (£450) to a pre-Oscar party in February. Out of these three bags, which do you like best?
Celebrities turned out to toast award season at the Vanity Fair Vanities Calendar party in West Hollywood last night. Eva Longoria, Brooklyn Decker, and Ali Larter made the rounds with Olivia Munn. The Office stars B.J. Novak and Ellie Kemper were also on hand to bring some laughs to the party, while Kate Mara and her boyfriend, Max Minghella, partied after recently flying in from NYC.
The award season celebrations won't be letting up anytime soon, as the Oscars are coming up this Sunday, Feb 24. If you want to get in on the celebrations, be sure to vote in our Oscar ballot for a chance to win $1,000 and an iPad!
Jessica Alba and Drew Barrymore were joined by a host of other stylish celebrities last night when they celebrated the launch of Tommy Hilfiger's new West Coast flagship store in West Hollywood. Drew and Jessica both wore Tommy Hilfiger outfits as they worked the red carpet with the designer and his wife, Dee. Jessica's latest public appearance was much less dramatic than the one she made on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday when she took part in a celebrity kissing booth and revealed her recent health scare.
Other famous attendees included Katy Perry, Olivia Munn, and Julianne Hough. Julianne was back in LA after a busy few days of press for Safe Haven in NYC, and dropped by the event sans boyfriend Ryan Seacrest, who attended the Topshop/Topman store opening nearby. Despite two fashionable bashes taking place in the same city, there were many stars who managed to attend each. Julianne, Jennifer Lopez, Estelle, and Jessica Lowndes all squeezed both events into their schedules.
Some of Hollywood's most notable names gathered at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills on Saturday for the British Academy of Film and Television Arts's annual award-season tea party. Silver Linings Playbook stars Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, and Chris Tucker, along with their director, David O. Russell, walked the red carpet. Hugh Jackman, Tom Hooper, and Amanda Seyfried also posed for pictures outside the party, while their Les Misérables cohort Anne Hathaway chose to make a quiet entrance away from the cameras with her husband, Adam Shulman, by her side. Other stars in attendance included Benedict Cumberbatch, Ben Affleck, Sally Field, and Jon Bon Jovi.
We spotted Bradley Cooper chatting with Hugh Jackman, and he admitted he felt a little starstruck by his fellow actor. After Silver Linings Playbook racked up several statuettes at the Critics' Choice Awards earlier this week, it looks like Bradley is a front-runner at tomorrow's Golden Globes, but when someone at today's soiree asked him how he'd celebrate if he won, he humbly dismissed the possibility as "crazy talk." Stay tuned for our interviews with Bradley, Hugh, and more stars at the BAFTA bash.
Selena Gomez and Kate Beckinsale attended Vogue's special dinner celebrating Alberta Ferretti's limited-edition 2013 collection in LA last night. Selena, wearing a blue Alberta Ferretti dress, posed alongside Chelsea Handler while Kate chatted up Olivia Munn. Meanwhile, Alison Brie, Brittany Snow, and Anna Kendrick — all in Alberta Ferretti — shared a few laughs as they sat front row at the special presentation.
The night wasn't just for actresses. Rachel Zoe and her husband, Rodger Berman, also dropped by the event to take some of the edge off of a hectic award season. Rachel attended the dinner while her client Anne Hathaway picked up the best supporting actress award at the Critics' Choice Awards while wearing Oscar de la Renta. Be sure to tune in to the Golden Globes on Sunday to see what Rachel will dress Anne in, and don't forget to vote in our predictions ballot for a chance to win $1,500 and an iPad mini!
The red carpet at the 2013 People's Choice Awards in LA Wednesday night was filled with stars heading into the big show. Newly single and one of the evening's winners Taylor Swift chose a simple white Ralph Lauren look, while Naomi Watts got sexy in a backless gold and black Alexander McQueen. Glee's Lea Michele, who was nominated for favorite TV comedy actress, brought a pop of color in a hot pink Elie Saab mini, and Julianne Hough mixed things up in a flirty Tony Ward Couture dress. Heidi Klum showed skin in a cutout Julien MacDonald number, and there were many more fashionable ladies that stopped for the cameras including Parenthood's Mae Whitman and Monica Potter, Homeland's Morena Baccarin, and Olivia Munn. Click through to see them all and make sure to vote on all of Fab's and Bella's polls!
Marie Claire magazine gathered a group of starlets together last night for a special Hollywood Dinner held at Fig & Olive in LA. The magazine's editor in chief, Anne Fulenwider, held court over a meal that brought out Zoe Saldana, Elizabeth Olsen, and Lea Michele. Mad Men's Jessica Paré also made the rounds with Magic Mike leading ladies, Cody Horn and Olivia Munn. Leslie Mann, who has This Is 40 heading to theaters Dec. 21, donned a colorful Monique Lhuillier dress to make the rounds. Zoe also upped the fashion ante in Bottega Veneta, and Lea wore Maria Lucia Hohan. It seems a good evening was had, as Lea later tweeted, "Amazing night tonight at the Marie Claire magazine party!!"
Stars hit the red carpet at the 2012 BAFTA Los Angeles Britannia Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel last night. Daniel Craig was joined by his Skyfall Bond girls, Bérénice Marlohe and Naomie Harris, but it was his wife, Rachel Weisz, who he leaned in to kiss before picking up the British artist of the year honor.
Daniel Day-Lewis was also in attendance, and after Steven Spielberg presented him with the Stanley Kubrick Award for Excellence in Film, he took advantage of his stage time to show off his funny side. Daniel thanked BAFTA with a spoof of Clint Eastwood's conversation with an empty chair at the Republican National Convention. The comical speech was somewhat unexpected from Daniel, who is best known for his serious roles, including Spielberg's Lincoln, which hits theaters next week. The Britannia Awards will be broadcast on BBC America Nov. 11 at 8 p.m. ET as a two-hour special.
