Tiffany & Co. hosted its 1920s-themed Blue Book Ball in NYC last night, which in turn inspired a seriously glamorous attendance list. Falling in line with the brand's theme and signature color, Kate Hudson stunned in a strapless, Tiffany-blue Reem Acra Resort '13 gown and sparkling diamond earrings. Gwyneth Paltrow opted for a cooler blue hue, wearing a long-sleeved Ralph Lauren gown with a jeweled butterfly brooch, and Jessica Biel showed off her love for Spring prints in a gorgeous floral-patterned Elie Saab gown and diamond-crusted hair brooch. And that's just the beginning. Click through the slideshow to see the rest of the chic celeb pack — including Sarah Jessica Parker, Carey Mulligan, and Michelle Williams — along with a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the swanky party scene inside.
If you're lucky enough to hang with this celebrity crowd, then soaking up the sun in St. Barts, vacationing in Cabo, and jetting off to Hawaii is the norm. Fortunately, this gives us noncelebrities a chance to draw inspiration for our very own vacation outfits. And who better to look to than these beach-chic style-setters, like Julianne Hough and Nina Dobrev, who recently vacationed in style in Miami.

There is a new Target collaboration that we can't wait to get our hands on: Kate Young for Target! The collection features party-ready outfits that celebrities like Michelle Williams and Kate Mara showcased on the red carpet at the launch party last evening in NYC. We were on hand to catch it all and even caught up with Kate Mara, who talks about the dress she chose to wear from the collection, her favorite red-carpet dress of all time (hint: she loves her brights), and what's on her shopping list for Spring. All of that and more in today's Fashion Flash. On Allison McNamara: Club Monaco dress, Stella & Dot necklace.
Michelle Williams showed off a new shaved hairstyle at the launch for her friend and stylist Kate Young's Target collection in NYC yesterday. She wore a white tuxedo jacket and blue shorts, all from the Kate Young for Target collection, as she caught up with Kate at the event. Michelle has been laying low in her Brooklyn neighborhood over the past few weeks after she finished up her promotional duties for Oz the Great and Powerful. She has been keeping busy by running errands, including trips to the grocery store with daughter Matilda and taking walks with her dog Lucky.
Michelle's fellow Brooklynite Maggie Gyllenhaal — and her husband Peter Sarsgaard — also turned out to support Kate, as did House of Cards star Kate Mara, who looked gorgeous in a yellow dress. Both ladies also wore Kate Young for Target as they said hi to other Kate Young fans including Giada de Laurentiis.
We've seen the sleek and sophisticated version of Michelle Williams's grown-out pixie cut, but the actress went for an edgier look at the Kate Young For Target party last night. Michelle showed off her new length with piecey bangs that created a look reminiscent of '90s punk. We've got plenty of tips if you're growing out your own crop, but what do you think of her asymmetric style?
The Hollywood starlets hit the prom-themed red carpet last night to celebrate the launch of the Kate Young For Target collection decked out in, you guessed it, Kate Young For Target wares. Maggie Gyllenhaal looked bohemian-chic in a one-shoulder printed maxi dress with a pair of suede strappy flats and a rhinestone bracelet; Michelle Williams showed off her new '90s hairdo and cool-girl style in a white blazer, black semisheer top, and navy shorts; and Kate Mara donned a party-ready yellow rhinestone-embellished dress accessorized with a bold cuff and suede peep-toe pumps. We can't think of better (celebrity-styled) examples of why you should nab a piece from the new collaboration once it hits stores and online on April 14. Now, we want to hear from you: which look gets your best-dressed vote?
Michelle Williams took her dog Lucky out for a walk in Brooklyn on Sunday. She bundled up against a chilly breeze in a green army coat and large scarf as she led her small pup around on a leash. Michelle has been spending time at her home in Brooklyn ever since she wrapped up her promotional duties for Oz the Great and Powerful in early March. She'll be back to work soon enough as she is reportedly set to star in Suite Francaise, a new film set in the French countryside during the German occupation in World War II. New projects aside, Michelle's warm-weather style has been inspiring us as we begin to look for new Spring and Summer items. Check out Michelle and many other stars' bikini looks for fashion inspiration as the weather heats up!
With Oz the Great and Powerful currently in theaters, we're reacquainted with some classic movie characters that first graced the screen in The Wizard of Oz 74 years ago. Since this is a prequel of sorts and focuses on the wizard (played by James Franco), we don't see all of the characters you know and love (sorry, Dorothy), but there are a few younger, slightly different versions of a few familiar Oz denizens. Click through to see how the shiny new class stacks up against the originals.
As a prequel to the beloved 1939 film The Wizard of Oz, Oz the Great and Powerful has a rich well of nostalgia at its disposal, and director Sam Raimi harnesses it to provide a foundation for a fresh new angle. Unfortunately, the new movie set in the land of Oz is all flash and no substance. James Franco plays small-time magician Oscar Diggs, who goes by "Oz" and is more concerned with fame and money than with other people. When the Kansas resident gets swept into a tornado (sound familiar?), he finds a strange new world that desperately needs to be saved from a mysterious wicked witch. Though Oz feels like an impostor, he finds a new side of himself that wants to help, thanks to some new friends and a beautiful witch, Glinda (Michelle Williams).
The good witch is contrasted by two other witches, Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Theodora (Mila Kunis), who both have streaks of wickedness, but we don't know who the bad witch is until an early twist reveals her. The witches, with their magic and unparalleled beauty, are the most fun characters to watch, but this is supposed to be about Oz — and his story is not compelling in the least. Find out what else I thought of Oz the Great and Powerful after the jump.
