Paris Haute Couture Fall 2013 has kicked off, which means stylish celebrities have started flocking to the City of Light to take in all the fashion and all the fun. So far, we've spotted A-listers Emma Roberts, Mena Suvari, and Uma Thurman all looking impeccable at the Atelier Versace show, along with Jennifer Lawrence (in an abs-bearing Dior ensemble that we're still talking about) and street style star Olivia Palermo at Dior. Head inside for a closer look at them and all the other Paris Haute Couture attendees so far.
Jennifer Lopez worked her curves and the red carpet in a stunning Tom Ford gown when she attended the Fourth Annual amfAR Inspiration Gala at the Plaza Hotel in NYC last night. She was one of the guests of honor at the benefit as she received the humanitarian award for her work raising funds for AIDS and HIV research. Other celebrity attendees included Uma Thurman, who wore Atelier Versace; Candice Swanepoel, who showed off a new bleached 'do; and a Carlie Wong-clad Carly Rae Jepsen, who performed at the charity bash.
After taking the stage to claim her award, Jennifer Lopez shared a laugh with André Leon Talley and mingled with other fashionable partygoers. Later in the night she tweeted, "Beautiful evening amfAR Inspiration gala! So humbled to be honored by these agents of change. Thank you Andre Leon Talley and amfAR." J Lo is back in the States after stopping over in London to appear on Britan's Got Talent and perform at the Chime For Change concert a few weeks ago. Earlier this week, Jennifer discovered she had landed a coveted movie role in the middle of a radio interview. J Lo could barely contain her excitement after she discovered she had landed the gig, but she stopped short of revealing what movie she will be in, saying, "It's a small movie but it's a great role, and a lot of people wanted it."
Jessica Biel donned a long Versace gown on the red carpet at last night's NYC premiere of Playing For Keeps. She posed for photos solo, as did her costars in the film Gerard Butler and Uma Thurman. Later, though, Jessica had the company of her husband, Justin Timberlake. Jess changed into a hot mint-green Nina Ricci dress to hit the afterparty at the Dream Downtown with JT on her arm.
Jessica and Justin have spent quite a bit of time in NYC since their Italian wedding back in October. She's done double promotional duty with two films out this season, Playing For Keeps and Hitchcock. In one interview, she opened up about the joys of life when you're married to a guy who can cook. Jessica Biel told Elle, "He bakes pies. He's Southern, so he's got all this influence from his grandma. He does a three-layer pie . . . and blueberry crunch cake, which is pretty unbelievable. It doesn't happen all that often, thank god. Otherwise, it would be a big problem."
Katy Perry and Selena Gomez put on their party finest for last night's UNICEF Snowflake Ball at Cipriani 42nd Street in NYC. The girls hit the blue carpet before heading inside for dinner and mingling. Katy wore a Naeem Khan caped ensemble, while Selena showed a bit of skin in Dolce & Gabbana. It was a colorful night for the female attendees — Kate Mara donned orange Jason Wu, Uma Thurman picked a dark blue Atelier Versace gown, and Girls star Allison Williams picked a mint green Naeem Khan ensemble. The night was about doing good, and quite a bit of charity took place. Selena tweeted, "So proud to be a part of UNICEF — we raised 2.5 million dollars tonight!"
Robert Pattinson attended Elle's Women in Hollywood last night as one of the few male attendees. He was on hand to honor his Bel Ami leading lady, Uma Thurman. Robert Pattinson sung Uma's praises in the role, saying their director sought "someone more intelligent, more charming, wittier and better in bed than me, which was obviously very difficult to cast." He also joked about being nervous, saying, "I'm learning how to read tonight. I find this terrifying." He didn't need to be worried, since plenty of ladies seemed happy to keep him company. In addition to chatting with Uma, Rob posed for photos with Jaime King and his Twilight pal Anna Kendrick. Rob's real-life leading lady, Kristen Stewart, skipped the event. Kristen and Rob have been hanging out, though, enjoying nights and afternoons out together around town.
I'd love to tell you the full star-studded cast of Movie 43 but I'm afraid we'd be here all day. The trailer for off-the-wall comedy includes Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet, Anna Faris, Emma Stone, Jason Sudeikis, Chris Pratt, Chloe Moretz, Justin Long, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. The film is a collection of 25 different stories, and as far as I can tell, the only common theme is stars behaving badly. Halle Berry blows out the candles on a blind kid's birthday cake, Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber bully their teenager, and Gerard Butler is a leprechaun.
A handful of bloated comedies have proven that the megaensemble is a tricky beast, but this has me wondering if the formula might actually work this time. It could be amazing, or it could be an epic fail. The movie opens Jan. 25, and you can watch the NSFW red-band trailer after the jump.
Sarah Jessica Parker seemed to take the snow theme to heart last night when she attended UNICEF's Snowflake ball in a pouffy Louis Vuitton number. She attended the gala at Cipriani 42nd Street with other stars like Zoe Kravitz, Uma Thurman, Adrien Brody, and Mark Ruffalo. Zoe made the rounds inside while decked out in a Chanel ensemble that had feathery details just like SJP's.
Sarah Jessica and her family are home in the Big Apple again after spending Thanksgiving with Matthew's sister in New Jersey. SJP and Matthew attended a mass at Morristown's St. Peter's Episcopal Church, where his sister is a pastor. Their son, James Wilkie, had a lesson on the organ, then over 20 members of their extended family sat down to enjoy a 27-pound turkey!
Last night in New York City, celebrities, models and fashion fans such as Jessica Alba, Helena Christensen, Blake Lively, Emma Roberts, and Coco Rocha came out to celebrate the launch of the amazing new Versace for H&M collection. Clad in the clothing, everyone looked sparkly, sexy, and ready to show off their outfits. Check out all of their amazing looks in this slideshow.
Ryan Gosling popped up at his first Cannes event this evening looking dapper in Salvatore Ferragamo for the Cinema For Peace inaugural dinner honoring Sean Penn for his charitable efforts in Haiti. Leonardo DiCaprio and rumored flame Blake Lively took a break from lounging so he could stop by to say a few words while Robert De Niro, Naomi Campbell, and Uma Thurman sat in the audience. Ryan's arrival in France is later than most of the star-studded crowd as his upcoming flick Drive, costarring Carey Mulligan, is closing out the film festival. Carey debuted newly dyed brown hair this week in preparation for her next role starring opposite Leonardo in The Great Gatsby. The cast of the Baz Luhrmann remake of the classic is close to complete with Joel Edgerton now playing Tom Buchanan after Ben Affleck reportedly passed on the role last month. Carey's not the only link between Leo and Ryan, as Ryan was also momentarily romantically tied to Blake last Fall.
Bar Refaeli went short and sweet in a sequined Roberto Cavalli mini last night to attend Chopard's Happy Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend party in Cannes. She jetted to France after spending much of last week in Germany, where she did press for her upcoming campaign with Escada. Her ex Leonardo DiCaprio has also been near the film festival, reconnecting with friends and listening to a Kanye West performance over the weekend at a private production company's concert. Leonardo DiCaprio and Blake Lively are also the subject of some recent romance rumors, after being linked last year while she auditioned, unsuccessfully, for a role in The Great Gatsby remake. Leo wasn't spotted at the bash yesterday, but Bar had the company of jurors Jude Law and a Dolce & Gabanna-clad Uma Thurman. Naomi Campbell also stepped out for the event following a cameo at the Fashion For Relief Japan Fundraiser.
