Call us out of the loop (never!) but we really didn’t know that the “Women In Film Crystal + Lucy Awards” were such a big deal. But so many stars turned up for the event at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in L.A. that we sat up and took notice. Leading the way and looking like a young Bridget Bardot was Chloe Moretz. She was the recipient of the 2012 Women In Film Max Mara Face of the Future award and fittingly wore a Max Mara dress with Rupert Sanderson shoes, and a vintage bracelet by Susan Caplan. Also wearing Max Mara, but not to such a winning effect, was Jenna Dewan Tatum, in a pale jade jumpsuit with Jimmy Choo shoes, a Swarovski purse, and Irene Neuwirth jewels. Christina Applegate notched up the brand’s cred again, though. She received the Norma Zarky Humanitarian Award wearing a cherry red Max Mara dress with Louboutin heels. Stylin’!
That wasn’t by any means, the end of Max Mara’s reign on the red carpet. Cobie Smulders also wore the brand with a lovely blush-hued frock and a contrast waistband. Viola Davis was her usual best-dressed self wearing a Max Mara black strapless dress and ruby lips. Meryl Streep also had the brand’s “Elegante’” dress with a black grograin waistband on.

At this weekend’s Kentucky Derby, the competition isn’t only on the track. Attendees are famous for wearing their biggest, brightest, and boldest hats in an effort to shield themselves from the sun — who are we kidding? — to stand out in the crowd of Churchill Downs. And a lot of those fabulous hats are on the heads of some of our favorite celebrities. From European fascinators to traditional straw hats, stars like Kim Kardashian and Paula Patton embraced the chance to embody true Southern elegance. Even Joey Fatone joined in on some fashion fun by sporting a feathered hat when he attended the Kentucky Derby in 2010. Before we sit down and tune in to the 138th Kentucky Derby race, let’s take a look at the 30 most awesome hats we’ve seen in recent years.
The Kentucky Derby rolled around this weekend and you know what that means…b and c-level celebrities in big hats! While ladies like Jordin Sparks, Paula Patton and Maria Menounos kept things fun, we have to call out three ladies for not quite hitting the right vibe. Miranda Lambert‘s visit doubled as a bachelorette party, so we kind of want to give her green cowboy boots a pass, but Aubrey O’Day has no excuse for traipsing around in “slutty french maid” lingerie (except for the fact that she’s Aubrey O’Day). Meanwhile, Kate Gosselin…ugh. Who hit the most heinous hat note?

TheFABlife and VH1 News hit up The Scream Awards to chat with celebs about America’s obsession with vampires, their picks for sexiest bloodsucker, and their plans for Halloween, Hollywood style. Of course a trip to the red carpet wouldn’t be complete without a chat with guitarist Dave Navarro, who revealed he owns 4 – yes, 4 – coffins that he sleeps in at home. Viva Hollywood weirdness!
