Variety hosted its annual Power of Women luncheon today at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills. The event, which celebrates influential women in the entertainment world, brought out a long list of boldfaced names. Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck were in attendance after stepping out for the LA premiere of Argo last night. The couple were among the presenters at the event, which spotlighted several actresses and their charitable contributions. Inside the lunch, Jessica Biel and Jennifer were seen catching up side by side at their table and posing for pictures together.
Today's honorees included Jessica, Halle Berry, Katherine Heigl, Queen Latifah, and Felicity Huffman. Queen Latifah's remake of Steel Magnolias premieres on Lifetime this weekend, and the cable network cosponsored today's festivities. The actress and rapper was specifically honored for the scholarship foundation she founded in her late brother's memory.
Make no mistake — a catchy collar necklace and fit-and-flare peplum top will take you far this Fall. But it’s the wardrobe well-stocked with iconic basics that truly goes the distance, for the simple reason that some classics never go out of style.
Consider the always on-trend UGG® Boots, which are as popular on the red carpet and the runway as they are on the street. Look for a pair that is equal parts timeless and exquisite, like the new Classic Short Sparkles. Featuring star-like sequins, glimmering metallic heel guard and flecks of sparkle to enhance the shearling-lined silhouette, it’s the same celebrated short boot with an even more luxurious twist!
And while metallic just so happens to be of-the-moment this season, the fashionable truth remains that a little sparkle is always spectacular — making this a stylish staple for years to come.
Anna Camp, Skylar Astin, Ester Dean, and Hana Mae Lee are just a few of the multitalented cast members in the new musical comedy Pitch Perfect. We recently caught up with the foursome at a press day for the film, where they told us about the songs they chose to audition with. They also weighed in on Anna's character's seriously unfortunate nervous tic and trading in a diet of donuts to take on the singing and dancing boot camp they were sent to before shooting. Pitch Perfect is in theaters everywhere today.

Gwyneth Paltrow stepped out in shades of white today for an event in NYC. It's been an exciting few weeks for Gwyneth, who turned 40 on Sept. 27. She's been spotted all over Europe in recent days celebrating the milestone with Chris Martin and their kids, Apple and Moses. They partied on vacation in Italy before Gwyneth hosted a star-studded bash in London on Wednesday with close friends like Hugh Grant, Stella McCartney, and Mario Testino. In addition to toasting her birthday, it's rumored Gwyneth is also in talks to produce a musical about '80s group The Go-Go's.
Gwyneth's back in the States for now to lend her support to a close pal, trainer Tracy Anderson. Tracy's credited for sculpting Gwyneth's famous frame — Tracy even created one-of-a-kind fitness routines Gwyneth could do while shooting on location or traveling on the road with Chris. Tracy recently gave birth to her second child and is now promoting a new series of workouts created for women who are expecting, appropriately titled The Pregnancy Project.

Variety hosted its annual Power of Women event in Beverly Hills today with major stars like Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner in attendance. Jen arrived fresh from the salon in a slicked-back ponytail and looked lovely in a textured peplum dress. She happily posed for photos before the luncheon while Ben quickly made his way down the press line and headed inside.
It's the second big event for the A-list couple in less than 24 hours. Last night, Ben and Jen joined George Clooney and Stacy Keibler at the LA premiere of Argo. It was a celebratory night for Ben, who stars in and directs the CIA thriller, based on true events, and for George, who produced the flick. Argo hits theaters next Friday, but today it's all about Jen's box office draw with her latest feature, Butter, opening in select cities.
Jessica Biel spent her afternoon at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel for Variety's fourth annual Power of Women event. She was one of five movie-industry honorees being acknowledged at the luncheon. Jessica's work advocating for access to clean water earned her the accolades. She's long been active in bringing attention to the plight of people without access to drinkable water. She told Variety, "It's a basic, human need, desire and right to be able to live and grow up and raise your children and your family in a place that provides clean water, and it's astronomical the amount of people who don't have access to that in a convenient way. That's why it's important to me." At the event, Jessica was able to catch up with her Valentine's Day costar and pal Jennifer Garner. Jessica took a photo of herself with Jen, captioning the image, "I'm the best at taking self pics! But seriously, how beautiful is Jen?"
Halle Berry brought her fiancé, Olivier Martinez, along to Variety's fourth annual Power of Women event this afternoon in LA. They gathered at the Beverly Wilshire Four Seasons Hotel along with many other stars like Jennifer Garner, Jessica Biel, and Katherine Heigl. The annual bash is held to celebrate female movers and shakers in the film industry. Halle was honored for helping women build new lives at LA's Jenesse Center, which helps abused women. Halle's spoken out about her own struggles with violent relationships in the past. Today, though, was all about the future and supporting Halle to continue doing good work in the community. We were on the carpet at this afternoon's event — stay tuned for the story on PopSugar Rush!
