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.
Kate Hudson wore Ann Taylor and brought Matthew Bellamy with her to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation's annual Hot Pink Party in NYC last night. The couple was joined at the charity bash by a Blumarine-wearing Elizabeth Hurley and Elton John, as well as fashion designers Michael Kors, Vera Wang, and Donna Karan. Kate was doing more than just walking the pink carpet; she also presented an award to Kay Krill, the CEO of ANN Inc., the parent company for Ann Taylor, where Kate serves as a brand ambassador.
Kate has been keeping busy in the Big Apple. She is currently promoting her new film, The Reluctant Fundamentalist, which will screen at the Tribeca Film Festival next week. Despite Kate's work duties, she and Matthew did manage to squeeze in time with their boys in the city ahead of their gala date.
Halle Berry made her first public appearance since her pregnancy news at a United Nations World Food Program event in NYC on Saturday. She was joined by Michael Kors, who cohosted the event with Halle, as she displayed her baby bump in a black dress. At the event, Halle revealed that she was surprised to find herself pregnant again. She said, "I thought I was kind of past the point where this could be a reality for me. So it's been a big surprise and the most wonderful." This will mark Halle's second child — she is mom to 5-year-old Nahla — and her first baby with fiancé Olivier Martinez.
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.
Gwyneth Paltrow showed skin in a cutout little black dress designed by Michael Kors at last night's Golden Heart Gala, benefiting the God's Love We Deliver charity, in NYC. She was joined at the charitable event by other Michael Kors-clad celebrities like Karolina Kurkova, a newly brunette Brooklyn Decker, and Anna Wintour. Michael himself had the honor of sitting between Bette Midler and Anna Wintour during dinner. Gwyneth took the stage to introduce Glee creator Ryan Murphy, who made a speech and even asked Bette if she'd make a cameo on Glee — to his relief, she said yes! Michael was also honored at the fete for making a generous gift that will allow God's Love, a nonprofit that delivers meals to the seriously ill, to fund a new building.
It was a chic who's-who battle last night, with Elle's annual Women in Hollywood celebration holding court in LA and the God's Love We Deliver Golden Heart Gala taking place in NYC. Where the latter is concerned, we were treated to a gorgeous mix of red-carpet looks courtesy of Gwyneth Paltrow, Brooklyn Decker, Karolina Kurkova, Olivia Munn, Chanel Iman, and more. The common denominator on the style front? Everyone donned their Michael Kors best. The iconic designer was honored, along with Glee creator Ryan Murphy, at the charitable event, providing a solid reason to dress the part. We love Karolina's perfect juxtaposition of feminine chantilly lace against a wintry long double-breasted wool vest. Gwyneth didn't disappoint with her body-con cutout LBD and white pumps. And Brooklyn's brocade meets origami-cut shorts set makes us want to jump on the texture train 10 times over. As for the rest of the impeccably dressed crowd, just keep clicking to see who wore what.
