Amanda Seyfried brought the drama over to Hong Kong for Clé de Peau Beauté's Gala Dinner in a red satin gown by Givenchy. We're not surprised she went for Givenchy, but we're still undecided on this look. Watch today's Fashion Flash for the story, and head on over to cast your vote on Amanda's daring look! On Allison: Zara.
If you were in the room at last night's Shiseido Clé de Peau Beauté Gala dinner, it would have been hard to ignore Amanda Seyfried. The actress showed her affinity for Givenchy in one of Riccardo Tisci's Pre-Fall 2012 pieces, a bold, red silk gown with a tie neck and coordinating strappy platforms. While Amanda can easily carry off the fiery hue, is the silhouette a little sleepy? Do you wish Miss Seyfried had slipped into something a little more youthful or are you a fan of her latest look?
Former First Lady Hillary Clinton is getting the biopic treatment with the film Rodham, which will follow the politician during her college days — and while dating Bill, of course. The film already has a script and a director, but it's still in early production, and obviously, the biggest question is who will play Hillary. Now, British actress Carey Mulligan is reportedly the front-runner for the role, but there are a few other actresses in the game as well, so let's speculate about who should play her. Click through to vote on whether or not you can see each actress as Hillary Clinton.
Riccardo Tisci cast what he calls his gang — a group of people including Carine Roitfeld that are "very faithful to my style, and faithful as human beings" — in Givenchy's Fall 2013 campaign.
The black and white photos, shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott and styled by Roitfeld, also feature Amanda Seyfried, models Mariano Ontañon and Dalianah Arekion, Spanish actor Quim Gutiérrez, and Roitfeld's daughter, Julia.
"I think it is a moment of history for me in fashion for my own gang," Tisci said in a statement, adding that in the campaign, "there is a gypsy feeling because it is the inspiration of the collection. Again, the reality of someone like Carine with her daughter showing real love or Quim with Amanda is very special to me. All of them, including the models, are real gypsies in their own life. They are never in one place. They travel the world."

When we spotted the print ad for Amanda Seyfried's fragrance campaign with Givenchy, we should have guessed the commercials would also have a masculine vs. feminine theme. As the new face of the Very Irrésistible scent, Amanda dons a fedora cap and trench coat, taking on the role of the sexy stranger. However, designer Riccardo Tisci doesn't miss the opportunity to showcase Amanda's feminine wiles. The spot ends in a sultry striptease (a somewhat strange thing to see in the midst of a Parisian cafe).
The fun wasn't over for the Met Gala 2013 attendees in NYC last night as they flocked to the Standard Hotel following the ball for the official afterparty at the Boom Boom Room. Madonna stripped out of her bum-baring Met Gala outfit and changed into a fishnet body stocking and black lacy lingerie to mingle with guests like Katy Perry, Allison Williams, and Frank Ocean. She wasn't the only star who made a costume change — Amanda Seyfried took off her gown and changed into a baggy black t-shirt to hit the dance floor with Frank. Meanwhile, Miranda Kerr met up with January Jones, Jennifer Lawrence arrived with Marion Cotillard, Gerard Butler mingled with Karolina Kurkova, andNicole Richie connected with Kirsten Dunst, and Mary-Kate Olsen snuggled with boyfriend Olivier Sarkozy. Mary-Kate and Olivier weren't the only couple at the late-night bash, as Jennifer Morrison was spotted holding hands with her Once Upon a Time costar Sebastian Stan and Kate Bosworth hugged Michael Polish. If you missed out on all the excitement last night, be sure to check out our collection of all the red carpet fashion from the 2013 Met Gala to get caught up!
This year's Met Gala attendees gave us good reason to think two outfits are better than one. And who can blame Ashley Greene for trading her dramatic Marchesa gown for something a little shorter come afterparty? Those iconic Met stairs (read: not ornate-dress friendly) alone could prompt an outfit change, but we think it gives this A-list set another chance to show off one more great look before night's end. Case in point: Allison Williams's surprising dark and sexy twofer, courtesy of Altuzarra. Or how about Madonna's Givenchy Haute Couture tartan and fishnets getup that turned into just fishnets all over? The beauty of seeing fashion's finest is actually seeing them at their finest, and that means outfit changes galore. Which stars were bona fide Met Gala quick-change artists? Find out right this way.
The 2013 Met Gala may have given celebrities a chance to channel their inner punk rocker in NYC yesterday, but once the event drew to a close, it was clear that these edgy new looks were only meant to last for the night. Stars like Cameron Diaz and Miranda Kerr were spotted returning to their normal selves as they left the bash, with Cameron chatting on her cell phone as she waited for her car and Miranda enlisting Michael Kors to help her navigate the stairs in her heels. Emma Roberts got help from Jaime King as she left the party, clutching onto her pal's hand as she carefully walked down the museum's famous stairs while Gwen Stefani made a smooth exit with Gavin Rossdale. Meanwhile, stars like Anne Hathaway and Taylor Swift were showing no signs of slowing down, using the mass exit of celebrities as a chance to catch up with their favorite small-screen stars like Game of Thrones' Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and New Girl's Zooey Deschanel.
Of course, just because the Met Gala wrapped up, that didn't mean the party had ended. Anne, Miranda, and many more celebrities hit up the afterparty at the Boom Boom Room later to dance the night away — be sure to check out the pictures from the Met Gala 2013 afterparty.
