Jessica Alba had more than her fair share of male company on the red carpet last night at the NYC premiere of Little Fockers with costars Owen Wilson, Ben Stiller, Robert De Niro, and Dustin Hoffman. She's a new addition to the franchise, which also consists of Meet the Parents and Meet the Fockers. It was a family affair for leading man Ben, as his parents, Jerry Stiller and Sex and the City's Anne Meara, joined him for the screening. Sexy lady Jessica, meanwhile, flaunted her brand-new short hair while posing with her husband, Cash Warren, who was evidently a big fan of her look. It was the latest press event for busy Owen, after he spent the last few weeks promoting How Do You Know with interviews and photo ops with Reese Witherspoon.
Gwyneth Paltrow brought her birthday boy Moses Martin for a fun outing in NYC yesterday with his sister Apple and grandmother Blythe Danner. Judging from his t-shirt the newly four year old is into Star Wars, but Gwyneth is all about children's books as evidenced by this week's GOOP newsletter. For now the actress seems to be enjoying her time in the States while Chris is off with his Coldplay bandmates building a solar system of new songs for their upcoming album. Gwyneth's own schedule will be very busy this month with Iron Man 2 coming so soon, and she already is making headlines with controversial quotes about friends and even dishing about Tracy Anderson and Madonna.

Rachel Bilson and Tom Sturridge hit the red carpet together at the premiere of Waiting For Forever in NYC last night during the Gen Art Film Festival. She showed some skin in her cutout dress, but we were interested in focusing on the puppy she's been spotted with in LA lately — turns out the dog is a friend's and Rachel is just acting as a protective "aunt." The film is a love story between Rachel and Tom's characters, and in real life she's still planning her wedding to Hayden Christensen, though she laughingly said there are no updates on that front. Tom, meanwhile, is pretty hesitant when it comes to acting as the leading man. He was enthusiastic about playing opposite Rachel, but he said he needed to "hide behind her" during their love scenes. Tom also revealed that he might be planning a longer stint in the Big Apple to star in an upcoming play. He couldn't make it down the press line without someone asking about his BFF, Robert Pattinson, who evidently isn't a fan of Skype.

Jennifer Aniston looked stunning in silver at the Women In Film 2009 Crystal And Lucy Awards in LA on Friday. Chelsea Handler sneaked in a joke about John Mayer as she presented Jennifer with the Crystal Award for Excellence in Film. Aniston responded by making fun of her own love life saying, "I have a strange parallel with movies I was doing and my life off screen. First, it was The Good Girl...which evolved into Rumor Has It, followed by Derailed. Then there was The Breakup. Followed by the lighter side, Friends With Money. If anyone has a movie called Everlasting Love With an Adult Stable Man, that would be great! I'm at table six, and my agents are at table 12." Love her sense of humor.
Jennifer was joined on the red carpet by some of her fellow leading ladies like Jodie Foster, Elizabeth Banks and Holly Hunter. Up-and-coming star Selena Gomez was surrounded by some great role models while Jenny McCarthy kept it sleek in her pantsuit. Catherine Hardwicke has had quite a whirlwind year in the success of Twilight but now she's shifting her focus elsewhere as she and Emile Hirsch take on Hamlet.
The ladies came out last night to celebrate at the premiere of Valentino: The Last Emperor at the MoMA in NYC last night. Gwyneth hit the red carpet all in black just like her mother Blythe Danner on her arm. Gwyneth looks fantastic and if she keeps aging like her mother she'll be a lucky, lucky lady. Anne Hathaway took a short break from posing after the Oscars, but she looked gorgeous last night in winter white. Claire Danes had her fiance Hugh Dancy there with her, but took a moment to pose by herself before heading in to see the documentary. The movie has limited release starting tomorrow for all the fans passionate about learning Valentino's story.
Sarah Jessica Parker let one of her dress sleeves fall off her shoulder while posing on the red carpet earlier this week at NYC Ballet season opening night celebration. She posed solo without Matthew Broderick and this devoted mom looked young at heart thanks to her short dress. SJP recently talked about how she couldn't see Carrie Bradshaw being a mother in any Sex and the City sequel, but I don't think the fans are worried about the plot yet so much as confirmation that it's coming our way.

When Saks kicks off a shopping for charity event, the celebrity ladies (and a few men) are sure to come running. Last night launched the 10th Annual Key to the Cure charity shopping weekend in NYC where the ladies showed off the t-shirt designed by Gwyneth Paltrow for the event, which is available for sale exclusively at Saks. Lindsay Lohan walked the red carpet solo, but caught up with both Samantha and Charlotte Ronson inside. The always adorable Lindsay Price wasn't the only Lipstick Jungle star out — hot Robert Buckley stopped by too. Newlywed Beth Ostrosky was back from her honeymoon and showing off her new ring finger bling on the red carpet. This looks like one perfectly lucky guest list eager to celebrate spending money for a good cause.
Gwyneth Paltrow, Mario Batali, and a few of their celebrity friends like Bono and Helena Christensen got together last night at the Queen Sophia Spanish Institute in NYC to celebrate the debut of Mario and Gwyneth's Spain . . . On the Road Again. The PBS travel food show premiered over the weekend and has already been picked up for a second season in Italy — but that's not Gwyneth's only project. She's also just launched a website called Goop.com, which is dedicated to nourishing one's inner self. Gwyneth is all about sharing her passions these days, and at yesterday's event she opened up about her love of food and family. She said:
- On being her own chef: "I cook all the meals for my house. I love to cook. [...] We have a wood burning pizza oven in our garden. Right now the weather is nice in London, so I'm using that oven a lot. You can cook anything in there. It's amazing."
- On family tradition: "My dad was a famous pancake maker and I'm working on [adapting his] recipe right now. I'm making mine slightly healthier."
Gwyneth's mother Blythe Danner was there to show her support and also compliment her daughter's cooking. Whether or not you believe that she never diets, it seems like Gwyneth is well on her way to starting multiple side careers that sound pretty yummy.
