The 2012 GQ Men Of The Year party was held at the Chateau Marmont in L.A. last night and as you can see above, the ladies took the black carpet quite seriously. Red means business and that’s the color a slew of stars decided to wear, as you can see above. And they all rocked red lipstick too, with the exception of Jenna Dewan who did a strong eye and neutral lip.She wore a tomato Amanda Wakeley dress with very sexy Christian Louboutin ankle-straps in the same shade. Brittany Snow wore a slinky vintage YSL dress with Jerome Rousseau heels. Then there was Rihanna who slayed them all in a very minimal strappy Calvin Klein mini dress and Manolo Blahnik sandals. Completing the red quartet was Jennie Garth and we don’t know who designed her peplum dress but it hugged every curve and made her look like a bombshell.
Monochrome didn’t fare as well as red sadly. Julianne Hough wore a Temperley London white suit that looked like something out of Saturday Night Fever. It also really needed to be hemmed as we couldn’t see her Brian Atwood shoes but at least her Roger Vivier gold clutch was cool. Rashida Jones — gorgeous woman that she is — got it all wrong by wearing a Marni top with a Band of Outsiders jacket, Giorgio Armani shorts, accessorizing with earrings by Dana Rebecca, Christian Louboutin shoes and bag, and rings and bangles by Crow’s Nest. It was just too much of a mish-mash and she looked squat, which she most definitely is not, due to those shorts. Diane Kruger went into weird avant garde territory by wearing a Cushnie et Ochs dress and Vanessa Bruno jacket which did not sit well, but her Jason Wu bag and Jimmy Choos were to die for. Cassie‘s Anthony Vaccarello gown looked like someone had a go at it with scissors but again, the Jimmy Choos were hot. Check out our gallery for all these looks along with all the other women who turned up. Favorites like Emily Vancamp (in a Reem Acra dress, and Brian Atwood heels,) Krysten Ritter (Dolce & Gabbana top and skirt) and Alessandra Ambrosio who was wearing a Sally LaPointe dress all made an appearance.

Sometimes certain events tend to surprise us because they’re low-flying on the radar, but end up being so highly attended that we have to sit up and take notice. That’s what happened with the Baby2Baby Gala on Saturday at the Book Bindery in Culver City, California. It’s a great cause providing families in need with baby-care products and essentials. A lot of very stylish moms showed up in support. We found Jessica Alba breathtaking in a shell, frothy Valentino Resort 2013 confection with a Roger Vivier clutch and Harry Winston jewels. Nicole Richie picked a similar color scheme opting for a gorgeous 1920’s inspired Lorena Sarbu Fall 2012 nude gown with an Art Decod pattern, with side-swept retro hair. Rachel Zoe also rocked it in a white goddess gown with black piping. Think it was her own design?
Another favourite was Julie Bowen‘s purple sequined Naeem Khan caftan accesorized with a Jimmy Choo tube clutch. Others that looked good, but not great, like the ladies mentioned so far, were Ali Larter (who should have nixed the leopard belt), Molly Sims (too drab in black, as was Rebecca Gayheart) and Busy Philipps whose dress was lovely but her brown clutch and turquoise jewelry ruined it for us. Mindy Kaling did work her Max Mara pale pink crepe gown even though the fitting was a little off! Read more…
The 23rd Annual GLAAD Media Awards went down on Saturday night at at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in L.A. Lovely ladies like Kat Graham, Ali Larter and Milla Jovovich attended. Larter looked tiny in a ruched red Zac Posen dress while Jovovich was draped in vintage Halston. Kat nailed it in a strapless black gown by Indian designer duo Alpana Neeraj. Grand dames like Betty White made an appearance too. She walked the red carpet with Wendie Malick and Jane Leeves — her co-stars on Hot in Cleveland.
Cher and Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack presented the Stephen F. Kolzak Award to Chaz Bono for making a significant difference in promoting equality. We also love that Josh Hutcherson got the Vanguard Award for the LGBT ally organization he co-founded called Straight But Not Narrow. The award was presented to him by Benicio del Toro, no less. Have a look for yourselves at all the very evident camaraderie between the stars in the gallery below.

At last night’s party for the GQ Men of the Year, our friends over at MTV News asked a very important question: Who would win in a fight, GQ’s Men or People’s Sexiest Men?
“I’ll take on the whole entire cast of Parks and Recreation. I’ll leave Justin [Timberlake] to take care of Glee and Jimmy Fallon could karate-chop the rest of those guys,” GQ honoree Jay-Z joked. And Joe Manganiello, who made People’s list of 25 Sexy Chests to Be Thankful For (amen!), had the most brilliant idea: “I think we should do it for charity!”
While we get in line for tickets to that one (please, powers that be, make it happen!), let’s take a look at some of the hottest fashions on display at last night’s festivities, from men (the likes of Kellan Lutz, Armie Hammer and Josh Hutcherson) and women (Minka Kelly, Sarah Silverman, Emma Roberts and more).
This was a big weekend for celebrity weddings. In addition to Mark Wahlberg, Heroes star Ali Larter also tied the knot with her boyfriend Hayes MacArthur. The couple wed at Hayes’ parents’ estate in Kennebunkport, Maine, where the guests arrived to the wedding on trolleys and Irish music played in honor of the groom’s heritage.
After dating for five years, Ali married the guy she says, “showed her the way.” “Since I was 15 years old, all I wanted was to find the guy I was going to marry. My heart got broken so many times because I put so much pressure on it. And then…I got blindsided,” Ali said.
