Two major events took place on both coasts last night. The first was the amfAR Inspiration Gala at the New York Public Library. Hilary Swank and Fergie attended and both looked lovely. Swank was a breath of fresh air in ladylike monochromatic Marc Jacobs tea dress while Fergie looked svelte in a midi black sequined Calvin Klein Collection sheath. Nicely done, ladies! The other party was the AFI’s 40th Life Achievement Award in honor of Shirley Maclaine in Culver City, California. We loved Dakota Fanning‘s flowing Gucci dress. She personalized it by adding Cartier bracelets and a Gucci belt. Mena Suvari wore a similarly themed Goddess gown, only hers was a white halter version with a black ruffle detail. Marcia Gay Harden also knocked it out of the park in a black circle dress and strappy heels. It was perfect for her figure. The sexiest outfit for the night, though, goes to Jennifer Aniston who glowed in a low-cut, leggy white Burberry gown. C’est magnifique!
Sadly, Katherine Heigl didn’t fare as well as her compadres. While her Monique Lhuillier gown was quite sexy — it had a long slit up the side — something was very wrong with her makeup and hair. We kid you not. It felt like she had touch of too much sun and drove to the event with the windows down. We aren’t exaggerating!
