Glamour's second-ever "These Girls" event, which benefits the Urban Arts Partnership, brought out plenty of funny ladies to take the stage at Joe's Pub in NYC last night. Amy Poehler was accompanied by Emma Roberts, Alexa Chung, Dianna Agron, Girls star Zosia Mamet, and more to perform both inspiring and hilarious personal essays ranging from sex and awkwardness to the hardships of growing up. Emma, who departed the event in the company of her boyfriend, Evan Peters, hit the stage to address her attempt to ditch Hollywood in pursuit of normal college life, revealing, "I was so busy pretending to experience everything [on screen], I forgot to experience real life." Amy was back for a second time after participating at the inaugural "These Ladies" show in October, when she was accompanied by Olivia Wilde, America Ferrera, Rashida Jones, and Aubrey Plaza.
If you need further proof that statement printed dresses are here to stay, let Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, and Dianna Agron be the latest examples of why you need to invest in one, stat. The three actresses recently attended the Vogue Triple Threats dinner in LA looking nothing short of Spring-ready in their respective party frocks: Anna made a statement in a silk flare dress by Thakoon, Brittany opted for a midlength creation by Duro Olowu, and Glee girl Dianna Agron showed off her new red 'do in a two-piece runway look from Derek Lam.

Sarah Jessica Parker, Dianna Agron, and Christina Ricci hit the red carpet at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC last night to celebrate the premiere of HBO's In Vogue: The Editor's Eye. Dianna donned a printed dress from Bottega Veneta, while Sarah Jessica paired a vintage dress with a blue velvet overcoat.
The celebs were joined by a host of big fashion personalities, including Vogue's Anna Wintour and other senior fashion editors, as well as designers Tory Burch, Vera Wang, Marchesa's Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig, and Derek Lam. Models Joan Smalls, Karen Elson, Arizona Muse, and Karlie Kloss turned out as well. We have a look at the trailer for In Vogue: The Editor's Eye ahead of its debut on HBO tomorrow at 9 p.m. Karlie, for one, was excited to see the finished product. She tweeted just before arriving at the Met, "Ready to see the amazing editors talk about bringing the stories come to life!"
No matter what your go-to hairstyle is for the holidays, the easiest (and fastest) way to add some flair is with a festive headband. Dianna Agron dressed up her tousled updo with a Dolce & Gabbana headpiece straight from the Fall 2012 runway. However you style your strands, though, make sure your headband stays put with bobby pins, or try adding texture to finer hair with a texturizing spray or wax for added grip. Another tip is to put the hair accessory on prestyle to make it feel like it's part of your coiffure.
"If you don't want the headband to look like its simply plopped on top of the head, place it on the head before you pull the hair back to form your French twist," said celebrity stylist Devin Toth of the Ted Gibson Salon in New York City. "This will hide the bottom tips of the headband, making the accessory look more natural and elegant." So whether you're a let-your-hair-down type or you like to style your hair in a ponytail, updo, or braid, adding a statement hairpiece will get you holiday-ready fast and loads of compliments, too.
Dianna Agron styled a Fall-friendly ensemble with chic pink Stella McCartney shades ($225) while shopping with a friend in LA. The blond beauty donned a pin-striped button-down, black denim, and brown buckled ankle boots, then layered on a polished camel coat to combat the Autumn breeze. Although the actress's neutral look was cute on its own, what really caught our eye was her unexpected accessories — blue patent leather bag, a hammered gold ring, and rosy shades. Take a cue from Dianna and make your closet staples pop with her exact sunglasses, a blue patent leather crossbody, and a few tough jewels.
She made her name singing on Glee, but now Dianna Agron's branching out beyond her TV beginnings with a popular art website, a feature film by a sci-fi legend, and a turn with video games as a spokesperson for Nintendo 3DS. An online media maven in the making with the site You, Me & Charlie, Dianna finds the organic crowd-sourcing of the Internet the perfect place to explore and share art of all mediums.
"The beauty of You, Me & Charlie is a lot of the suggestions come from our readers," she says. "We wanted to create a site that was collaborative and introduce people to art they never knew about. It’s so nice to have all these artistic mediums to really encourage and promote artists, because whether it’s full time work or something you do just recreationally, art influences all of our lives."
In fact, it's her well-known love of art that brought her to the Nintendo 3DS "Play As You Are" campaign, a promotion to show people that never thought of themselves as "gamers" a line of casual games that'll instantly redefine the term. "With games like Art Academy: Lessons for Everyone! you can learn techniques actually covered in school art classes that I didn’t even remember," Dianna explains. "I’m a charcoal-drawing girl, in real life and on the game. It’s great that there’s the 'gamer' games . . . and now the educational games, the whole gamut."
In between sourcing emerging artists and creating mini-3DS masterpieces, Dianna is moving forward with her big-screen career, having just wrapped filming of Luc Besson's — director of The Fifth Element, one of her favorite movies — new film, Malavita, in Paris. Dianna says of her time working alongside Luc and Hollywood heavyweights Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer, "You couldn’t be In Paris for those three months and not walk away with the most rewarding experience ever."
Being our typical gadget fiend selves, we had to know what sort of gadgets the actress/gamer/artist/photographer would never travel to Paris without. Get ready for some major camera envy!
- iPhone — "I love all the photo apps on the iPhone; can’t imagine not having those."
- Canon DSLR — "Not that the iPhone camera isn't great, but I also like to have my heavy duty Canon on hand."
- Leica M8 — "I picked up a really good deal on a M8. I traded in a couple old cameras and a lens, then found a used Leica. I think it was a GREAT trade."
- Nintendo 3DS — "I take it around with me everywhere in my purse."
Read on for Dianna's secret online obsession and a behind-the-scenes look at the Nintendo commercial.
