Wow. Check out Jennifer Aniston in red! She looks totally sexy in this Vivienne Westwood strapless sheath, and excuse you for that cheeky pop of cleavage, Miss! This is completely unusual for the actress, because Jen’s style sheet has so far consisted of blacks, beiges and hints of metallic. Don’t get us wrong — she works whatever she’s wearing, but the colors she’s drawn to are mostly neutral. This dress shows us that Aniston still has some surprises up her sleeve (so to speak) and we love it. Jennifer wore it with a pair of sexy strappy stilettos and minimal jewelry to promote her self-titled perfume at Sephora in New York yesterday. We want more!
We’re saluting Kate Hudson right about now. She looks like she’s about to pop and getting dressed up for movie premieres can’t be the most comfortable thing to do at this stage. But look at her! She looks absolutely stunning in that primrose yellow Versace gown! She wore it to the Hollywood premiere of Something Borrowed held at Grauman’s Chinese theatre yesterday. Isn’t it the perfect choice? We couldn’t hope to look half as good, and we’re not eight months pregnant!
Even though the silhouette is completely different, we don’t know why we were reminded of that other iconic yellow dress she wore on screen in How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days. Looks like yellow is her color! Kate finished up her look with a ring and earrings from her new collaboration with Chrome Hearts called CH + KH. All the other celebrities paled in comparison, but we’ve put a gallery together of the event for you to check out. Ginnifer Goodwin, Hilary Swank, Kat Graham and more in the photos below.
We’ll admit that we like it when Katy Perry goes all South-Beach-drag-queen, but as Katy Perry’s Vanity Fair cover reminds us, she does retro ’40s glam even better. Not that Katy looks this flawless as soon as her head leaves the pillow, as husband Russell Brand‘s tweeted photo of Katy Perry without make-up can attest. “We were just messing around,” Perry laughs in the interview. “I didn’t really care. I mean, when I go to rehearsals I look like that. I’m every woman. It takes a village to make me who I am…. You don’t have to wake up looking like, you know, Gisele.” Sure, but does Gisele look this good with a bright-red lip? The defense rests.
After donning a red Proenza Schouler gown, Kristen Stewart left the Costume Institute Gala and headed to the after party at the Standard Hotel in what we’d call “Classic K-Stew:” black skinny jeans, knotted t-shirt, and her trusty blue Vans. Most celebs stayed in their gowns, and some even changed into a second glammed up dress. Not our Kristen! The fact that she hops out of her fancy clothes as fast as she can AND dares to dress down at an event where Anna Wintour may be cowering in a corner, judging people on their threads, only makes us love Kristen more.
Here they are, our picks for Best Dressed at this year’s Costume Institute Gala. Our finalists captured a mix of moods, from old-school glam girls Gwyneth Paltrow and Ashley Greene, to pops of color on Kristen Stewart and J-Lo, to the risky and avant garde looks on Christina Ricci and Ginnifer Goodwin. The one thing they all have in common – serious confidence, which is our favorite red carpet accessory.
Here they are — our picks for the absolute ugliest, WTF-iest and just way off outfits at tonight’s Costume Institute Gala. The annual event — held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and hosted by Vogue and Anna Wintour — is arguably one of fashion’s biggest nights, and it always amazes us that so many people get it SO.WRONG. Kirsten Dunst! Riri! These are the gals we look to for inspiration, but their outfits, hair and shoes just blahhhh-ed tonight. Christina Hendricks normally wins every time she walks the carpet, but this outfit looks like something she dug out of a dumpster and smeared on her body. Naomi Campbell should throw her rhinestone-covered Blackberry at herself for this abysmal showing (Do we spy a scrunchie?!), Ashley Olsen‘s arms are sleeved in 100% fail and Freida Pinto is going to have to nail it on every red carpet for the rest of the year to make us forgive and forget this hipster douche tie monstrosity.
Kristen Stewart arrived at the Costume Institute Gala tonight wearing a stunning, full-length, apple red Proenza Schouler gown and heels (with Fred Leighton jewels), and was accompanied to the event by the designers, Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough. We almost died from envy but we remembered we had to write this post and saved ourself at the last minute. This isn’t the first time Kristen has dazzled in the designer’s threads – she wore an adorable Proenza Schouler ensemble while promoting New Moon in 2009 and teamed up with the guys this year for a Vogue cover spread. We are loving the look — what do you think?
The 2011 Costume Institute Gala red carpet has just started, and we will be packing this post with every photo we can find through out the night. The second we can get our hands on it we will get it to you – scout’s honor. Tonight’s event is honoring Alexander McQueen, so we expect lots of fearless fashion at the Metropolitan Museum of Art tonight! Don’t let us down, starlets — we’re counting on you.

Kristen Stewart looked lovely in this lacy Valentino number (and Brian Atwood heels) at the Welcome to the Rileyspremiere in New York last fall. Christina Aguilera showed up at last night’s Mary J. Blige Honors concert wearing the same dress. We love the look, but which starlet really pulls it off?
As if her Sara Burton wedding dress wasn’t gorgeous enough, Kate Middleton’s second gown, which the Duchess of Cambridge slipped into for their post wedding celebrations, was an equally beautiful Alexander McQueen gown with matching angora bolero. Because if you’re going to marry a prince, you might as well do it right. After the ceremony the newlyweds headed to Buckingham Palace, where the couple will celebrate their love at a party thrown by Prince Charles before retiring at the palace for the night. Meanwhile, we’ll be celebrating the death of all strapless wedding dresses (or so our upper arms hope).
