This year's Met Gala attendees gave us good reason to think two outfits are better than one. And who can blame Ashley Greene for trading her dramatic Marchesa gown for something a little shorter come afterparty? Those iconic Met stairs (read: not ornate-dress friendly) alone could prompt an outfit change, but we think it gives this A-list set another chance to show off one more great look before night's end. Case in point: Allison Williams's surprising dark and sexy twofer, courtesy of Altuzarra. Or how about Madonna's Givenchy Haute Couture tartan and fishnets getup that turned into just fishnets all over? The beauty of seeing fashion's finest is actually seeing them at their finest, and that means outfit changes galore. Which stars were bona fide Met Gala quick-change artists? Find out right this way.
Many fashionable Hollywood celebrities turned up the glamour at last night's amfAR Gala at NYC's Cipriani 42nd Street. The event, which helps kick off New York Fashion Week, was full of designers and celebs in stylish gowns. Ashley Greene wore a white Giambattista Valli frock while Sarah Jessica Parker went for a daring Maison Martin Margiela Couture pink dress. Honoree Heidi Klum donned a black Michael Kors number, which she wore when she chatted with the designer and her former Project Runway costar on the red carpet.
Other guests included Cheyenne Jackson, Chloë Sevigny, couple John Legend and Chrissy Teigen, and Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke, who dazzled in a dramatic Zac Posen gown. Of course, the night wasn't only about fashion — the amfAR Gala benefits AIDS research and honors those who have made significant contributions towards the fight against the deadly disease. In addition to Heidi, designer Kenneth Cole and Janet Jackson were honored for their work with the organization.
Emma Stone and Miranda Kerr were among the celebs who stepped out last night for the ninth annual CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards in NYC. As in years past, the attendees dressed up in clothes by — and attend the event with — a certain designer. Ashley Greene donned a racy Wes Gordon number, arriving with Wes himself. Ashley and Dakota Fanning, who donned Jason Wu, were fresh from LA and Monday's US premiere of Breaking Dawn Part 2. Other attendees included Liv Tyler, Karlie Kloss, and Allison Williams — click through to see them all in our gallery.
Emma Stone wore Burberry Prorsum to mingle with that brand's creative director, Christopher Bailey, and help hand out the night's big honors. The evening's main prize, a $300,000 grant to grow a business, went to Greg Chait of The Elder Statesman. Shoe designer Tabitha Simmons was the first runner-up, with jewelry maven Jennifer Meyer Maguire as second runner-up. Both Tabitha and Jennifer received $100,000 for their companies, and Jennifer was able to celebrate into the night alongside her husband, Tobey Maguire.
The final installment in the Twilight franchise hits theaters on Friday, and on Monday night the cast came out in LA to premiere their project. Elle Fanning kicked off the red-carpet appearances with Elizabeth Reaser, Mad Men's Kiernan Shipka, and Ashley Tisdale. Ashley Greene signed autographs, as did an Elie Saab-clad Dakota Fanning, while Peter Facinelli posed for photographers. Amy Adams and Julianne Hough also made appearances. Kellan Lutz shared a moment on the carpet with Nikki Reed and Ashley, who both wore pastel gowns, when he wasn't busy posing with girlfriend Sharni Vinson. Kristen Stewart wowed the crowd in a sheer Zuhair Murad gown and stopped for snaps alongside boyfriend Robert Pattinson. There were even more famous faces out for the big night, including author Stephenie Meyer, so click through to see all the pictures from the big Breaking Dawn Part 2 night now!
Fans of Twilight will finally get to see the whole saga comes to an end with this week's release of Breaking Dawn Part 2. But before you catch Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and the rest of the film's stars acting out the highly anticipated scenes, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at what the red-hot actors were doing before they were cast in the series. Some were unknown, others were child stars, so let's take a look back at their careers.
Sometimes all it takes is the perfect weekend equation to bring about a veritable parade of covet-worthy dresses. Case in point: the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in LA inspired more than a few starlets to come to the polo field wearing their Saturday best. Mandy Moore's purple Lela Rose number catered to Fall's textural intrigue, Ashley Greene showed off a sexier bondage-infused side in an Antonio Berardi LWD, Alessandra Ambrosio's colorfully pleated BCBG maxi dress reminded us there's always a way to keep Summer's softer side intact, and Lauren Conrad, in her own Paper Crown design, proved that polka dots can be totally chic, too. Beyond that we've got an enviable lineup not to be missed courtesy of Ashley Madekwe, Rachel Zoe, Selma Blair, Ali Larter, and more. Click on for the complete star-studded fashion rundown from the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic.
The beauty looks at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic were all about glamour, but there was one hairstyle that was the obvious favorite: the tousled wave. Whether they were paired with a turban like the one Rachel Zoe was donning, or styled in a vintage fashion à la Lauren Conrad, these wavy strands took center stage. The trick to this look is to hold your curling iron horizontally instead of vertically while you wrap the hair around it. A quick tug on the wave while it's still hot will further loosen it.
To get Lauren's style, brush the waves out lightly once they cool and part your hair to the side. Ashley Madekwe's strands can be achieved with a half-inch iron with the hair being curled away from the face, while Ashley Greene's can be teased up and pinned back for a cool-girl look. And for a trendsetting way to wave, pair beachy strands with an inky black turban like Rachel. These effortless curls look polished and cool, no matter how you decide to wear them.
Variety hosted its annual Power of Women luncheon today at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills. The event, which celebrates influential women in the entertainment world, brought out a long list of boldfaced names. Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck were in attendance after stepping out for the LA premiere of Argo last night. The couple were among the presenters at the event, which spotlighted several actresses and their charitable contributions. Inside the lunch, Jessica Biel and Jennifer were seen catching up side by side at their table and posing for pictures together.
Today's honorees included Jessica, Halle Berry, Katherine Heigl, Queen Latifah, and Felicity Huffman. Queen Latifah's remake of Steel Magnolias premieres on Lifetime this weekend, and the cable network cosponsored today's festivities. The actress and rapper was specifically honored for the scholarship foundation she founded in her late brother's memory.
Jennifer Garner made a red-carpet appearance with the cast of Butter at the NYC premiere last night. She chose a strapless Gucci gown for the occasion, which came after attending a press conference earlier in the day. Jennifer had Ashley Greene; Olivia Wilde, in Alexander McQueen; and Ty Burrell by her side for both events. Costar Alicia Silverstone missed out on this afternoon's promotional stop but joined them for this evening's screening and later at the afterparty sponsored by Appleton Estate Rum. Jennifer, Alicia, and Olivia mingled with Harvey Weinstein at Double Seven, where they celebrated their premiere.
While Jennifer is working in NYC, her husband, Ben Affleck, is on the West Coast. He attended a charity dinner on Monday night and was spotted grabbing lunch on his motorcycle yesterday.
The 2012 Toronto International Film Festival kicks off this week, and as we prep for A-Lisy red-carpet moments, we're taking a look back at highlights from years past.
