Leonardo DiCaprio debuted Django Unchained in NYC last night. Leo was joined by his costars Jamie Foxx and Samuel L. Jackson, as well as director Quentin Tarantino, on the red carpet. Leo, who is currently filming The Wolf of Wall Street, also celebrated alongside pals Olivia Wilde, John Legend, Liv Tyler, and Cameron Diaz. Leo and Cameron have been seeing a lot of each other lately, as they were spotted celebrating for charity in NYC back in November.
Django's premiere came just ahead of today's SAG nominations. Despite all the award season buzz around the film, it received zero nominations. Nonetheless, early reviews for Django Unchained are excellent. Audiences will get to see Quentin's latest for themselves when it arrives in theaters on Christmas day, Dec. 25.
Quentin Tarantino brought out a crew of stylish celebrities in NYC last night for the screening of his latest movie, Django Unchained. To help celebrate the occasion, Cameron Diaz and Uma Thurman made an appearance looking effortlessly chic in black and white separates; Liv Tyler showed off her impeccable style in a moody floral dress by Dolce & Gabbana; and Olivia Wilde shined in a sleek black jumpsuit — and that's just the beginning. Olivia Palermo showed off her style cred in a statement fur coat, Zoe Kravitz looked downtown-cool in purple and black, while Elettra Wiedemann showed off her supermodel status in leather and lace. See all of the gorgeous looks in the slideshow now, then tell us who gets your best-dressed vote.
There are ways to punch up your outfit — and then there's the Liv Tyler way to do it. While promoting The Hobbit last night, the actress gave an all-black outfit a cheery lift with a fiery pair of Tabitha Simmons ankle-strap heels ($1,245). It's another testament to our styling theory that just a touch of the holiday hue goes a long way, especially when it's paired with an otherwise all-black look. It's the more modern approach to festive styling. Rather than commit to that over-the-top party dress, you get just the right dose of eye-popping red. It's also not at all hard to re-create, and it doesn't require the exact same outfit approach, either. All you need to steal Liv's statement-making style is your favorite LBD and tights, black shorts, and a tuxedo blazer, or any combination of dressed-up black separates. Of course, if you don't already have the same standout heels in your closet, now's the perfect time to shop a pair of our editors' picks. And if you want to amp it up a notch, embrace Liv's other on-point finishers, like a pair of decadent earrings and a bold red lip.
An epic adventure began at last night's premiere of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey in NYC. The film's stars gathered at the Ziegfeld Theatre in Midtown for the event. Leading man Martin Freeman joined his costar Andy Serkis, who in real life doesn't look much like his character Gollum. Ian McKellen laughed with Richard Armitage and director Peter Jackson. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is the first in a trio of Hobbit films planned by Peter. Next up is The Hobbit: There and Back Again, which will feature Orlando Bloom and Benedict Cumberbatch.
This latest series follows on the heels of Peter's Lord of the Rings franchise. Also in attendance were former costars and members of the Lord of the Rings clan, Liv Tyler and Elijah Wood. Other guests who caught an early showing of the film included Chevy Chase, Terry O'Quinn, and Patrick Stewart. The Hobbit will open to the public when it hits theaters Dec. 14.
Emma Stone and Miranda Kerr were among the celebs who stepped out last night for the ninth annual CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards in NYC. As in years past, the attendees dressed up in clothes by — and attend the event with — a certain designer. Ashley Greene donned a racy Wes Gordon number, arriving with Wes himself. Ashley and Dakota Fanning, who donned Jason Wu, were fresh from LA and Monday's US premiere of Breaking Dawn Part 2. Other attendees included Liv Tyler, Karlie Kloss, and Allison Williams — click through to see them all in our gallery.
Emma Stone wore Burberry Prorsum to mingle with that brand's creative director, Christopher Bailey, and help hand out the night's big honors. The evening's main prize, a $300,000 grant to grow a business, went to Greg Chait of The Elder Statesman. Shoe designer Tabitha Simmons was the first runner-up, with jewelry maven Jennifer Meyer Maguire as second runner-up. Both Tabitha and Jennifer received $100,000 for their companies, and Jennifer was able to celebrate into the night alongside her husband, Tobey Maguire.
On their respective NYC school runs this morning, both Liv Tyler and Sarah Jessica Parker channeled the same nod to seasonal stripes, leaving us with one thought: we have to have one of those sweaters. In each look, it's their multihued pullovers in rich autumnal hues that make the look. While Liv Tyler's bold stripes perk up her casual classics and a basic palette, like denim bottoms, a trench coat, and cream-colored Converse, SJP's Splendid fair isle stripes play right into her Fall-feeling look, a mix of rich textural blazer and burgundy bottoms. No matter how you choose to wear it, this much is a given — you could absolutely wear it with anything. Aside from these two dressed-down versions, we're envisioning a warm striped pullover to cozy up a pleated skirt and tights or to temper our slick leather skinnies. Feeling inspired? Shop our picks and style up your own, anyway you choose.
We're the first ones to say "kick back and relax" come weekend time, but that certainly doesn't mean we want our off-duty style to fall by the wayside. In fact, we're looking to Liv Tyler's polished yet laid-back ensemble for a fresh round of weekend-themed outfit inspiration. Not only is her daytime look a Fall-perfect combination of casual and cool, but it's also unbelievably simple. Seriously. All you really need to follow suit are your favorite pair of jeans, a classic peacoat, and old-school Chucks on tap. We say, invest in a little texture — be it stripes, chunky knits, or tweedy fabrics — where your shirt and sweater layers are concerned. And to finish, add a black croc-skin shoulder bag into the mix, providing the look with just the slightest hint of accessory flair. If you happen to be a fan of bolder pops of color, opt for a brighter-hued bag or a printed scarf instead. As for the rest? Stick to the basics, Liv-style, and you can't go wrong.

Liv Tyler hung out outside her NYC apartment in a pair of cobalt skinny jeans, which she cuffed at the bottom to make them cropped. On top she wore a loose-fitting black blazer and on bottom ivory Converse All Stars. Her black python crossbody bag added a pop of luxe to her otherwise casual look. If you've been looking for a new way to rock your cobalt jeans, mimic Liv by sporting them with sneakers, a baggy blazer, and an equally sophisticated bag. Shop similar pieces below to get started.
