David and Victoria Beckham were among the famous faces that celebrated the 2012 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalists at a dinner held at Bouchon in Beverly Hills last night. Vogue's editor in chief, Anna Wintour, was on hand, as was Camilla Belle, Busy Philipps, and Leslie Mann. The fun kicked off earlier in the day at the Chateau Marmont, where Victoria mingled with Jennifer Aniston, Gwen Stefani, and Katy Perry during a fashion show featuring the CFDA finalists. January Jones, who wore a Rachel Zoe jumpsuit, attended the afternoon event while her Mad Men costars Jon Hamm and Jessica Paré were on location in Hawaii filming season six of the series.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen joined Julianne Moore last night at WSJ. Magazine's Innovator of the Year awards. The bash was held at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC. In addition to the innovator being honored, it was a big night for the editorial staff at the magazine — WSJ's new editor Kristina O'Neill, formerly of Harper's Bazaar, was in attendance, too. Mary-Kate and Ashley's line The Row was recognized by WSJ. for being the fashion innovator of the year, and their statue was presented by the Tribeca Film Festival's cofounder Jane Rosenthal.
Photographer Mario Testino unveiled his In Your Face exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston last night. Gisele Bündchen stepped out for the event, showing off her growing baby bump in a Halston dress, which she covered up with a Tom Ford jacket. Gisele wasn't the only model on hand since a Versace-clad Alessandra Ambrosio made an appearance as well. She's since returned to NYC, where she's unveiling the $2.5 million Victoria's Secret Fantasy Bra. Alessandra appeared on Good Morning America today to chat about the diamond-encrusted lingerie after sharing that she'd been "waiting a long time" to model the luxury undergarment. She'll be wearing it in the brand's annual fashion show, which airs on Dec. 4.
If you're still on the hunt for a Halloween costume and need something quick and effortless, why not go as legendary Vogue editrix Anna Wintour? For a truly Wintour-inspired Halloween look, you'll need only a few basics (all of which we're sure you can wear again). Before we get to the clothes, keep in mind that you'll need to channel Anna's signature brown bob for instant Wintour. For your outfit, start with a slim-fitting, sleeveless sheath dress (we encourage buying a great LBD that you can wear again and again throughout the season), and classic nude heels. While we're more than OK with you splurging on a pair similar to Anna's Manolo Blahnik slingbacks, we're offering up a more affordable pair for the night. Accessorize with a jeweled collar necklace and oversize black sunglasses so nobody will see your icy stares. For good measure, consider carrying along a copy of Vogue, for all those fashion neophytes that don't understand your awesome costume. Lastly — and we can't stress this enough — don't forget the ultimate Anna Wintour trademark: an unruffled, stoic expression.

Gwyneth Paltrow showed skin in a cutout little black dress designed by Michael Kors at last night's Golden Heart Gala, benefiting the God's Love We Deliver charity, in NYC. She was joined at the charitable event by other Michael Kors-clad celebrities like Karolina Kurkova, a newly brunette Brooklyn Decker, and Anna Wintour. Michael himself had the honor of sitting between Bette Midler and Anna Wintour during dinner. Gwyneth took the stage to introduce Glee creator Ryan Murphy, who made a speech and even asked Bette if she'd make a cameo on Glee — to his relief, she said yes! Michael was also honored at the fete for making a generous gift that will allow God's Love, a nonprofit that delivers meals to the seriously ill, to fund a new building.
