Kate Bosworth and Winona Ryder couldn't have dressed more differently when they both attended the Homefront premiere in Los Angeles last night. Kate literally shined in a strapless silver dress heavily embellished with crystals. A metallic box clutch, sparkling H.Stern Moonlight earrings, and silver Christian Louboutin heels only added to the monochromatically gleaming red carpet look. Meanwhile, Winona opted for an all-black Cushnie et Ochs dress sporting diagonal shoulder cutouts. She completed the timeless outfit with a black clutch and heels. Whose look do you think was more successful?
This week, Zoe Saldana and Winona Ryder showed us why the faux bob is such a great style. Both ladies complemented their curled hair with red lipstick and little black dresses, but the styles themselves were vastly different. Zoe's faux bob at the UK premiere of Star Trek Into Darkness was pure vintage, with brushed-out waves and loads of shine. Winona's style, on the other hand, took on a more modern approach. She opted for tousled ringlets with plenty of texture. There is no wrong way to wear this trendy style, but which version would you rather emulate?
James Franco and Zac Posen-clad Winona Ryder paired up for a screening of The Iceman in NYC last night. The costars greeted each other with a kiss when posing with their leading man Michael Shannon on the red carpet. Their thriller The Iceman is out in limited release this Friday, May 3, and is a based-on-a-true-story tale of a hitman leading a double life.
In addition to this film's upcoming release, James has a lot on his plate. He is headed to the Cannes Film Festival in a couple of weeks to screen his directorial project As I Lay Dying and will also be in London in May making Good People with Kate Hudson. Additionally, James will direct and star in Garden of Last Days, a big-screen adaptation of a novel by author Andre Dubus III.
Alexander Skarsgard was joined by his stylish costars at a screening for Disconnect in NYC last night. He wore a Calvin Klein suit as he posed for photos with a Gucci-clad Paula Patton and the beautiful Andrea Riseborough in a Proenza Schouler frock. Elizabeth Olsen and Winona Ryder also dropped by the screening, the latter of which cuddled up with director Henry Alex Rubin on the red carpet. The film, which opens on Friday, April 12, follows a group of unrelated characters who are all connected through their dependency on technology. Disconnect's trailer, which was released in March, earned a bit of buzz for Jason Bateman's turn in a dramatic role.
Alexander will have a full schedule as he heads into Summer. He has the premiere of What Maisie Knew, his new film costarring Julianne Moore, to look forward to in the Spring, as well as the return of True Blood on June 16. If you can't wait until Summer for more Alexander, check out the True Blood season six trailer that was released last week.
The Venice Film Festival is under way! Things kicked off a week ago with the premiere of Kate Hudson and Liev Schreiber's The Reluctant Fundamentalist. Since then, we've seen famous faces like James France, Clive Owen, and Salma Hayek making the rounds. Selena Gomez and her Spring Breakers costars joined in the fun yesterday and Shia LaBeouf got in on the action when he showed off The Company You Keep with Robert Redford today.

If you didn't catch Michael Shannon's intensely psychotic role in Premium Rush, you should definitely take a gander at the trailer for The Iceman. Shannon stars in the movie based on the true story of the now-notorious Iceman, contract killer Richard Kuklinski. (The Iceman claims to have killed over 100 people in the 1980s). Chris Evans plays his right-hand man, a dirty ice cream truck vendor who helps hack up the bodies once Richard has made the hit.
I find Shannon to be absolutely gripping as the man hiding his dangerous career from his innocent wife (Winona Ryder) and kids. I'm also really happy to see Ray Liotta, one of my favorite movie mobsters, as the Iceman's boss. And just when you think it's over — looky, looky, it's James Franco! Check out the chilling trailer (no pun intended) for The Icemanafter the jump.

>> While the rest of us are still weeks away from getting our hands on the Marni for H&M collection, last night's pre-launch event in LA saw a bevy of high-profile guests already decked head-to-toe in the capsule's pieces. Sofia Coppola, Consuelo Castiglioni, and H&M creative director Margareta van den Bosch hosted the event, while guests Drew Barrymore, Winona Ryder, Milla Jovovich, and Lou Doillon were on-hand to celebrate — and sing the praises of — the collection. "I feel unique, I feel well-tailored. I feel like a rock n' roll Jackie O," Milla Jovovich, who wore a floral off-the-shoulder ensemble, exclaimed.
Also in attendance was the star of the collection's Coppola-directed campaign video, Imogen Poots, as well as Brian Ferry, who performed the campaign's theme song, Avalon. Get an inside peek at the event in the video — which also features a cameo by Mel Gibson — below, then click through the slideshow to see all the guests in their Marni-for-H&M-finest.
Today, we're celebrating Winona Ryder's birthday. The actress might not have had the smoothest journey on the walk of fame, but we still remember her glory years as the cute, goth girl in Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands. Also, who can forget all the hotties — Johnny Depp, Matt Damon, and Christian Slater to name a few — she dated throughout the years? Before her shoplifting arrest and subsequent disappearance from the Hollywood scene, Winona was one impressive red-carpet regular. We're fans of Winona's work, and we're happy to toast her best looks, and hope she has more in the future.
The costume: Veronica Sawyer
In the 1988 cult classic Heathers, Winona Ryder (as Veronica) portrays a teen who, along with her completely demented boyfriend (played by Christian Slater), goes on a rampage to end the cruel ways of a popular clique at school.
The costume: Veronica Sawyer
In the 1988 cult classic Heathers, Winona Ryder (as Veronica) portrays a teen who, along with her completely demented boyfriend (played by Christian Slater), goes on a rampage to end the cruel ways of a popular clique at school. These three girls, of course, are all named Heather, hence the film's title.
Hair and makeup: Blow it up Veronica-style and wear the memorable look Winona Ryder sported at the end of the film; you know, right after her man sets a bomb off on himself. Wear a medium-length, brunette bobbed wig and tease it out with a comb to re-create Veronica's disheveled hairstyle. Don't forget to apply fake blood and ashy-toned eye shadow to your face so that you look like you've just been to hell and back.
What to wear: It's '80s style to the max: an oversize blue t-shirt, short plaid skirt, gray cardigan, and black tights and flats. (See it in full here.)
Take it to the next level: Walk around with a cigarette to show how tough you really are, and slap a red scrunchie in your hair. Be sure to say, "Heather my love, there's a new sheriff in town," as an homage to Veronica's gutsy (albeit crazy) actions.
