Kate Bosworth and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley both trekked to London for today's Burberry show. They were in the front row along with British actors Eddie Redmayne and Jeremy Irvine to see their new Fall 2012 Burberry collection from designer Christopher Bailey. Kate made the rounds with boyfriend Michael Polish, though Rosie's real-life love Jason Statham sat the proceedings out. Rosie, who'd just flown in from LA, gave kisses and hugs to her pal Mario Testino once inside. Kate, Rosie, and other celebs like Alexa Chung and Clemence Poesy were treated to Christopher's rendition of the iconic Burberry trench coats in action. His finale involved sending umbrella-toting models down a runway covered in silver confetti rain.

Salma Hayek hit the red carpet in Madrid last night on the arm of her husband, Francois-Henri Pinault, for the 2012 Goya Awards, the Spanish equivalent of the Oscars. She was joined by her Puss in Boots costar Antonio Banderas and his wife Melanie Griffith. Salma was in attendance as a presenter and nominee, having earned an accolade for her work in La Chispa de la Vida. Antonio was likewise up for an honor thanks to his role in The Skin I Live In.
Antonio lost to Jose Coronado, but Antonio's film still won in four other categories. The Artist, which also fared well in Spain, added another win to their long list of accolades with the best European film award. The Artist could be a major winner this weekend when the Academy Awards roll into Hollywood on Sunday.

The orange carpet was rolled out in Hollywood yesterday for the world premiere of Dr. Seuss's The Lorax. Two of the film's stars, Zac Efron and Taylor Swift, in an Honor dress, shared a big hug before making their way down the press line. Ed Helms hit the event solo, but met up with the star of the 3D animated movie, the Lorax himself, for pictures. Danny DeVito brought his family along, and Betty White, who voices the part of Zac's grandmother, was all smiles.
We recently sat down with the cast at the LA junket, where Ed hinted about an Office spinoff starring Rainn Wilson and his friendly rivalry with Taylor. Zac touched on his other upcoming projects, The Lucky One and The Paperboy, before giving us his best Matthew McConaughey impression. It was Taylor's first movie junket, but she seemed like a total pro. She described for us the differences between making music vs. acting, and talked with great excitement about her upcoming album. Taylor couldn't reveal an exact release date for the record, but did say it will have a "different" sound.
The trailer for Cherry kicks off like an after-school special: pretty teenage girl moves to San Francisco, dreams of becoming a model, gets mixed up with the wrong people, and ends up a porn star. The girl, Angelina (Ashley Hinshaw) is also trying to sort out her relationship with an older man (James Franco) and a close male friend who is clearly in love with her (Dev Patel).
Though the trailer makes me believe the film may be slightly sugar-coated (Hinshaw never seems to lose her smile, and the story line with Patel could be too sweet to believe), but I'm interested in this one for the cast, which also includes Heather Graham. Take a look at the trailer when you read more
Jake Gyllenhaal joined his fellow 2012 Berlin Film Festival judges like directors Anton Corbijn, Mike Leigh, and Francois Ozon, as well as actress Charlotte Gainsbourg, for their closing ceremony last night. They wrapped up the cinematic fun following a week of screenings, photo ops, and press conferences. Angelina Jolie, with her In the Land of Blood and Honey, and Robert Pattinson, who debuted Bel Ami, were among the stars who trekked to Germany for events — check out all the Berlin Film Festival pictures. Last night, statues were handed out to honor the best work seen at the festival. Jake personally handed off the best actress Silver Bear to Congolese actress Rachel Mwanza for her performance in War Witch. Other honors went to the Danish movie A Royal Affair and Germany's Babara. The best picture distinction went to Italy's Caesar Must Die.
Reese Witherspoon wore all black on Saturday night to attend the annual ACE Awards at the Beverly Hills Hotel. She took the stage during the ceremony to present her Election director, Alexander Payne, with the evening's Golden Eddie Filmmaker of the Year. She had help in handing off the statue from Alexander's The Descendants editor Kevin Trent. Alexander was up for further honors yesterday. His Descendants won Best Adapted Screenplay at the Writers Guild Awards, which took place simultaneously last night on the East and West Coasts.
The ACE Awards offered Reese a reunion with Alexander, and a chance to reflect on their 1999 movie. Reese had a brand new movie arrive in theaters this weekend as well. This Means War was fifth place at the box office, taking in a disappointing $17.6 million.
