Star Trek's latest chapter isn't just for Trekkies. Zoe Saldana and Alice Eve's promo tour has already been proof of the glamour on Star Trek Into Darkness's red carpets. But last night's premiere got quadruple the celebrity-style treatment when Kate Beckinsale and Jennifer Morrison joined the film's leading ladies in LA. Jennifer channeled Disco-era dazzle in a sequined jumpsuit, then polished it off with nude platform pumps and a pair of major jewel-drop earrings. Kate took a more subtle approach in a riff on the classic LBD, a strapless and asymmetrical-hemmed dress from Alberta Ferretti, which she amped up with a playful pair of neon sandals. As for the night's costars, Zoe Saldana bared her midriff in a ruffled, nude peekaboo confection from Rodarte's Fall '13 collection and Alice Eve slipped into a sleek gold and black sheath from Zuhair Murad. That's the rundown on who wore what; now it's time to cast your vote.

She later met up with an Alberta Ferretti-clad Kate Beckinsale inside the event, as well as her costars Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto. Jennifer Morrison created a red carpet moment when she dropped by the premiere while wearing an Edition by Georges Chakra powder blue jumpsuit.

Last night, Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, and Kate Beckinsale celebrated Mandy Ingber's new book, Yogalosophy, in LA looking glam in their respective black looks. Kate showed off her shoulder in an asymmetrical, knee-length dress, which she accessorized with nude patent Rupert Sanderson pumps, this black leather Ben-Amun cuff ($205), and teardrop earrings. Jennifer opted for a plunging LBD and black strappy sandals, while Courteney opted for a less feminine and more menswear-inspired look, including a dotted blouse and peep-toe booties. All three ladies stayed true to their unique personal style, but which ensemble wins in your book?
Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox were together last night in LA to celebrate Mandy Ingber's new book, Yogalosophy: 28 Days to the Ultimate Mind-Body Makeover. Also out for the bash at Soho House were Ricki Lake and a Monique Lhuillier-clad Kate Beckinsale. In addition to Jen and Courteney's long-term friendship, Jennifer and Mandy also go way back — they've been practicing yoga together for years, and many credit Mandy with keeping Jennifer in such amazing shape.
Two weeks ago, Jennifer wore another short black outfit to celebrate one of her own debuts. Jennifer Aniston wore Dior to the premiere of her latest project for Lifetime called Call Me Crazy: A Five Film. To promote Call Me Crazy, Jennifer visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show as well, and there she shot down any rumors that she and Courteney will reunite professionally for a Friends reunion.
During her chat with Ellen, Jennifer also spoke about her fun-loving fiancé Justin and his love of scaring her by hiding behind drapes, or practicing what he calls "trickery." They're, of course, working on the joint project of organizing a wedding. The latest on their big day comes from Us Weekly, which reports today that Jen and Justin are delaying their wedding until later in the year for a variety of reasons.
Kate Beckinsale was back in a bikini in Mexico yesterday, after popping up poolside on Wednesday and Thursday as well. She chatted with friends in a black two-piece and ordered lunch from the staff.

Kate's just one of many celebrities enjoying Spring vacations, and she's not the only star to travel to Mexico. Molly Sims and her family headed south for the holiday weekend, while Reese Witherspoon recently wrapped up her own Mexican escape with husband Jim Toth.

Kate showed off her fit physique under the sun after participating in a mock yoga class during a skit on After Lately this week. Kate joked that Chelsea Handler's body isn't looking "great" and critiqued her "toxic lifestyle" for the clip, which was all in good fun. Kate will be back on screen later this year, when her next movie, The Trials of Cate McCall, is released.
