The Fifi Awards, a.k.a. the Oscars of the fragrance world, are a pretty big deal. The 40th annual round of the ceremony took place in New York last night with a smattering of celebrities in attendance. Out of these, Nicole Richie nailed it the most, as usual. Here’s how much we love her personal style — we normally can’t stand mullet dresses. They give us hives. But this Emilio Pucci black semi-sheer number, along with her retro up-do, has made converts out of us. Nicole looks hot, and she knows it!
Next up, there’s Jessica Stam. In theory, we know it’s hard to make a supermodel look bad, but we’ve seen too many disasters to know that’s not actually true. But Jessica in this lovely, knee-length, cap-sleeved dress is demure and and as far away from a disaster as can possibly be. We love the hint of silver beading and draping across the neckline. Rounding up the trio of best-dressed ladies was Michelle Monaghan, who went the minimal route, as opposed to Jessica’s elegance and Nicole’s retro drama. She poured herself in to a sexy, simple, navy-blue gown with cut-outs. The makeup was kept to a bare minimum, her hair was pulled back and she had a touch of gold on through her accessories. Three different looks, three definite wins.

Fashion Week is in New York, right? Then why exactly are all the stars on the other side of the country in Beverly Hills? That’s because Tom Ford called—and is as sexy as ever, BTW—and when he throws a ‘do, everyone shows up. Ford opened his flagship store in Beverly Hills yesterday, and it turned out to be a mini fashion week in it’s own right, as expected.
The love of our life, Colin Firth was there with the love of his life, wife Livia. Rosario Dawson teemed up her little black dress with a pair of leopard print pumps, while Eva Longoria went slinky in a pair of sequined black pants. Milla Jovovich was risque in a plunging sheer black blouson, hiding her modesty with a houndstooth suit. We were kinda disappointed by two men who normally make us drool every time we see them. Alexander Skarsgard and Bradley Cooper, to be precise. Skarsgard looked strangely parboiled with a weirdish, uneven tan — like he had sunglasses on while the rest of his face ended up getting sunburnt. Cooper had these creepy old man sunglasses on which were a little too Jack Nicholson for us. Adrien Brody, on the other hand, didn’t disappoint sticking to his usual lounge lizard style.
The most unusual outfit of the evening went to Ginnifer Goodwin. While her pant suit looked normal (and kinda boring, to be honest) from the front, turn around and bam… giraffes!

The cast of Due Date is eclectic in its own right. You’ve got Robert Downey Jr., Zach Galifianakis, Juliette Lewis…RZA. It’s just a fun but crazy group. And that’s exactly the definition of their red carpet looks at the film’s premiere last night – a little bit fun, a little bit crazy. The biggest question on our mind is what’s hiding underneath Galifianakis’ hat – his hair is so pubed up in the movie, and yet it looks so very flat-ironed and warrior-like here. What’s going on? Some kind of Hangover 2 hazing?

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie brought their oldest son Maddox to the LA premiere of Invictus last night. The couple rarely get to take the kids along to their own films—what with all the sex and violence and everything—but pals Matt Damon and Clint Eastwood‘s a new film about courage, human rights and soccer in South Africa that was just perfect for a family night out. Also attending were Michelle Monaghan (looking packed in the back thanks to her drapey dress) and the ever-informal Kenny Chesney, who could have been mistaken for a barrier-breaking fan standing next to the dapper Morgan Freeman.
With its prestigious pedigree and positive message, Invictus has a good chance of scoring a trophy or two at the Critics’ Choice Awards this January. See more of the stars in the gallery below.
