Every day seems to bring a new invitation to a holiday party — it's the time of year when we gather with co-workers, family, and friends, requiring a cute outfit for everything. If you're like us, you start off on the exhausting lineup with enthusiasm and what feels like a limitless store of little black dresses and sparkly cocktail frocks. So what happens when you run out? Three celebs are sharing cute alternatives to the dress that you can copy in a week or so (or, you know, tonight).
Familiar with playing the bombshell card, Sofia Vergara gave the curve-flaunting dress a break at a recent LA event. Instead, she picked a pair of lacy black shorts and a silky blouse. Depending on the weather where you are, wear them with tights like her or go bare-legged.
With Elizabeth Banks and Reese Witherspoon stepping out last night with similar blond bobs and makeup looks, we were seeing double. Elizabeth attended the Legoland tree-lighting ceremony with a festive red lipstick and shimmering shadow, while her hair was styled with a slight wave. Reese also went for a crimson lip at the Children's Defense Fund Beat the Odds Awards, but her shade was more brick than bright. Her newly shorn bob was blown out for a smooth, sleek look. These two could pass for twins, but who pulled off the look best?
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire hits theaters today, and the stars of the franchise have been busy traveling the world to promote their project. Between interviews, photocalls, and red carpet premieres, there have been plenty of memorable moments — including one seriously heartwarming fan interaction — and we're taking a look at our favorites.
After touring in Europe, the cast of Catching Fire is back in North America! And — if we do say so — it seems like the style stars were waiting to break out their most showstopping looks for the movie's NYC, Toronto, and Los Angeles premieres. Jennifer Lawrence flashed a section of midriff in her black Dior dress, while Elizabeth Banks went for the drama in glittering Jenny Packham harem pants. Jena Malone brought the action up north on Tuesday in a stunning black and gold dress. But at Monday's LA premiere, sheer was the name of the game: Lawrence stunned in a transparent belted dress that was almost overshadowed by an equally sheer number on Jena Malone. Meanwhile, Banks showed she wasn't afraid of bold color in a bright, curve-hugging gown by Versace. Clearly, these red carpet games show no signs of slowing. Hungry for more?

Although Jennifer Lawrence's pixie styles have been the talk of every Catching Fire premiere so far, we have to give an extra special shout-out to Elizabeth Banks. The actress, who plays Effie Trinket in the film, stunned in a glamorous blowout and a sultry makeup look.
Celebrity makeup artist Fiona Stiles nabbed the inspiration for the look from Elizabeth's showstopping gown. "The first thing that ran through my mind when I saw it was '90s supermodel," Stiles said. So after prepping Elizabeth's skin and setting her foundation with Mark Set Things Right Loose Powder in Medium, she focused on the eyes. "I created a strong brow by using Anastasia Brow Wiz in Caramel," Stiles said. She then swept Mark I-Mark Wet/Dry Eye Shadow in Fairy Dust all over her lids.
The same shadow in Tabac was diffused in to give some darkness before a bit of Mark Touch and Glow Shimmer Cream Cubes All Over Face Palette in the light-colored cream shadow was applied to her lids to catch light. A swipe of mascara, some nude lipstick, and Elizabeth was done. To get the look, shop all the products below!
The stars of The Hunger Games have been busy traveling the world to promote their project this month, and on Monday night they landed in LA for their latest stop. We were there for all the action as the cast members made their way down the red carpet and posed for the cameras — check back for all of our interviews! Jennifer Lawrence continued her run of daring looks in a see-through Dior gown while Elizabeth Banks brought a pop of color in a strapless dress. Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson were back by their leading lady's side after they last popped up in Paris and Rome. The big event also brought out Modern Family's Sarah Hyland and Nolan Gould, Kylie Jenner, Ashlee Simpson and her boyfriend Evan Ross, and more. There have been so many memorable moments on the Catching Fire press tour as the cast gears up for the Friday release of the much-anticipated sequel.

Elizabeth Banks picked a stunning Versace look for Monday's premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and hopefully there were fewer rules for this gorgeous gown than some of the ones her character, Effie Trinket, dons in the film. One piece in particular, the butterfly dress from the Reaping ceremony, which is an archive McQueen, came with a pretty strict set of rules! Check out what the actress had to say about the dress, and see lots more of Elizabeth and the cast on our Catching Fire POPSUGAR Live! takeover show.
Another day, another city for Jennifer Lawrence and the Hunger Games: Catching Fire cast!
