There were many lovely gowns on the red carpet at last night's Screen Actors Guild Awards in LA, ranging from the bold whites to the belted and those with lots of lace. Mila Kunis's Alexander McQueen dress seems to be your favorite from the evening, but as always a few of the ensembles fell short of the stylish mark. So, take a look at the options below and tell us — who do you think was worst dressed at the SAGs?
For the ladies who didn't suit up in rainbow brights, they found a chic alternative in white. Eva Longoria chose a Grecian-inspired Georges Hobeika; Natalie Portman dressed her bump in a strapless Azzaro; and Lea Michele shimmered in a sequined Oscar de la Renta gown. Meanwhile, Winona Ryder opted for volume via a ruffled and tulle confection, and Amy Adams kept it super sleek in Hervé Leroux. Now, it's time to select the standout — who's your favorite lady in white?

Winona Ryder is channeling her Black Swan character with brown smoky eyes, rosy lips, and a curly updo. She wore a white strapless gown with folded layers and tons of tulle — then accessorized with dagger-like drop earrings, onyx bracelets, and a simple black evening bag. What do you think of Winona's look?

Last night at a photocall promoting her new movie The Dilemma in Germany, Winona Ryder proved that you can wear bold lips with a bold eye if it's done right. Note how Winona's bright lip gloss adds to — not detracts from — her overall look. Its sheer texture and her curly hairstyle both provide softer touches to a style that could otherwise read too heavy. For tips on getting Winona's beauty look yourself, just keep reading.
The title of The Dilemma seems apt, because the film is having a dilemma of its own: how do you make jokes about a marriage falling apart? The film tries to make light of what is frankly, a sad scenario, and it never really gets the balance of drama and comedy quite right.
Vince Vaughn plays Ronny Valentine, a small business owner who works on electric car motors in Chicago with his best friend from college, Nick (Kevin James). Ronny is the face of their operation, using his smooth sales techniques to wheel and deal with clients; Nick is the brains, the nerdy engineer who sees the projects through completion. They're the perfect team, and with Nick's wife Geneva (Winona Ryder) and Ronny's girlfriend Beth (Jennifer Connelly), the foursome is practically like family. But when Ronny catches Geneva playing tonsil hockey with a tattooed guy who's not, he begins to question everything: the sanctity of marriage, friendship, and most of all, to tell or not to tell?

Last night on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, Winona Ryder talked tech — or, more appropriately, lack thereof. Like Verizon, she just got an iPhone ("I like buttons. I'm still getting used to the touchscreen."), but she hates autocorrect and has trouble using it. She doesn't have a computer — though her friends and family do — and she's terrified of Google. "You're just one button click away from joining Al-Qaeda," she worries.
This isn't the first we've heard of the actress's tech fears; she recently told Elle that she doesn't use the Internet at all! While her fears are obviously a bit unfounded, the clip itself is funny. It's hilarious to think of how disconnected and tech-phobic some celebs really are! Check out the full clip after the break.
It was a night of family for the stars of The Dilemma at their Chicago premiere yesterday. Jennifer Connelly, who shared about her very specific pregnancy cravings Wednesday on The Late Show, flaunted her bump in a gray Lanvin dress, while Kevin James posed with his expecting wife, Steffiana de la Cruz — the Jameses are adding to their family with their third child! Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan, while not currently expanding their clan, showed off their happy marriage with some red carpet PDA. Vince Vaughn became a father himself just last month when his wife, Kyla, delivered baby Locklyn. Kyla skipped out on the screening, but Vince looked happy to mingle with director Ron Howard, producer Brian Grazer, and costar Winona Ryder.
Like a ballet performance, Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan begins with a showy opening act and closes with a dramatic finale. What happens in between, as we watch a ballerina named Nina lose herself in her new role as the Swan Queen in a New York City ballet production of Swan Lake, is also a dance of sorts: Nina teeters on the brink of sanity, dances around the subject of her own sexuality, and leaps into a side of herself she never knew existed.
As the Swan Queen, Nina is required to play two parts: the virtuous princess-turned-White Swan and her conniving alter ego. As the story goes, the sensual Black Swan seduces her sister's prince, thus keeping the princess trapped as a bird forever. Nina's fragility and innocence make her ideal for the delicate White Swan, but the company's director Thomas initially casts her aside as too prudish to embody the Black Swan as well. When she shows up at his office to change his mind, she inadvertently taps into her suppressed dark side for the first time, winning her the part and beginning a dizzying, suspenseful transformation.
There's a lot to digest in Black Swan, from Aronofsky's glaring black-and-white symbolism to the reasoning behind Nina's insecurities. In the end, whether or not you enjoy the film might be dependent on what lens through which you view it. To find out what I mean, just read more
Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis premiered their much-anticipated ballet film, Black Swan, in NYC last night. Natalie wore a dark Dior gown and dramatic red lips, while Mila went with a lighter look in Elie Saab. It was the costars' second evening in a row of sharing the red carpet after stepping out for the Gotham Independent Film Awards on Monday to support director Darren Aronofsky. The ladies were also on the West Coast earlier this month for a premiere in LA, where they talked about the many challenges, like extreme weight loss, that their roles required. All of their hard work is already paying off, as the film received multiple Independent Spirit Award nominations ahead of its Friday release.

Many of Hollywood's leading ladies stepped out in NYC last night for the annual Gotham Independent Film Awards. Anne Hathaway celebrated her appointment as cohost of next year's Oscars in her Dolce & Gabbana dress, and she spoke about her excitement over the honor. She said, "I found out that I'm one of three women to host since . . . I think it was 1987. Maybe I'm the fourth, I'm not sure. I'm still learning all the amazing statistics that I almost don't want to know because it gets a little bit too intimidating." Black Swan's Natalie Portman, in a piece from Lanvin for H&M, and an Oscar de la Renta-sporting Mila Kunis were there to watch as their director, Darren Aronofsky, took home a prize for his work — check out the evening's other winners. Leighton Meester was back in the US after a quick trip to Spain to make a daring appearance in a Thom Browne suit along with a maxidress-wearing Amanda Peet and a Lanvin-clad Julianne Moore.
