Josh Hartnett got in on the pre-Oscars parties when he dropped by the Vanity Fair and Fiat party benefiting the United Nations International Labour Organization in LA last night. The star-studded event, which was hosted by Ron Howard and composer Hans Zimmer, also included Lake Bell, Alyssa Milano, and Adrien Brody as guests. Josh had a busy evening, as he also visited the Hollywood Domino and Bovet 1822 event in West Hollywood. Alyssa — who wore Gucci to last night's event — will likely have a lot more Academy Awards-related events to attend this weekend, since her husband, David Bugliari, reps Bradley Cooper, who is nominated for best actor. Bradley has a lot of events on his plate this week, including Wednesday night's Vanity Fair dinner for Silver Linings Playbook, which he attended alongside costar Jennifer Lawrence and director David O. Russell. Don't forget to join us for our LIVE Oscars viewing party and red carpet coverage on Sunday, Feb. 24 at 5:30 p.m. EST/2:30 p.m. PST.
Julianne Moore, Naomi Watts, and Drew Barrymore wore Elizabeth Taylor's finest pieces of jewelry to celebrate the late actress's famed accessory collection with Bulgari in Beverly Hills last night. Julianne paired a coral Alexander McQueen gown with a $6.1 million emerald and diamond necklace that was once owned by Elizabeth. Drew and Naomi went for simpler looks to show off their pieces, which included a jewel-toned choker and a long tassel necklace. Drew wore a black-and-white Max Mara ensemble and carried a Givenchy Rottweiler clutch, while Naomi donned a simple black dress and coat. Kirsten Dunst also attended the event in a glamorous black dress fitted with a pearl decoration.
Bulgari will be holding an exhibition of Elizabeth Taylor's jewelry at its Beverly Hills store through Oscars week. The brand will likely also be featured on the necks, ears, and arms of more than a few celebrities at the upcoming Oscars. Be sure to tune in to the awards on Sunday, Feb. 24, and don't forget to fill out our Oscars ballot for a chance to win $1,000 and an iPad!
Zombie comedy Warm Bodies comes to theaters this weekend, with Nicholas Hoult at the forefront as an undead Romeo. Is the unconventional romance worth a trip to the movies, though? Check out our video review to find out if you should watch, pass, or rent Warm Bodies.
Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer, and Dave Franco celebrated their new film, Warm Bodies, with a glamorous premiere in LA. Teresa, who wore a black lace Philip Armstrong gown, chatted with Nicholas at the premiere's afterparty and shared a cute moment with John Malkovich, who plays her father in the zombie romantic comedy. She was joined by her costar Cory Hardrict and his wife, Tia Mowry, and model-turned-actress Analeigh Tipton who wore a stunning Barbara Bui dress.
At the premiere, Nicolas spoke about his X-Men costar and ex-girlfriend, Jennifer Lawrence, who most recently picked up a SAG Award for her highly acclaimed performance in Silver Linings Playbook. He admitted to being "very proud" of Jennifer so far and hoping that she wins an Oscar. A SAG trophy isn't the only award that Jennifer has picked up during this year's award season — check out Jennifer Lawrence's best award-season moments so far.
If you're a zombie movie fan, you should be counting the days until Warm Bodies lumbers into theaters this week. Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer headline the movie as star-crossed lovers, but in this case, Romeo is a member of the undead. Rob Corddry, Dave Franco, and Analeigh Tipton also costar in the horror-comedy-romance. Before you buy your tickets, take a look through all the pictures of the movie!
It may have been a snowy Friday evening in NYC, but that didn't put a damper on either Teresa Palmer's or Analeigh Tipton's outfit choices. In fact, the Warm Bodies starlets both donned sweet Springlike silhouettes for the film's screening, invoking a lighter, easier brand of styling. In effect, the ladies squared off in a sartorial battle of "who wore it best" last night, and we're letting you call the shots. But before you declare a winner, take a closer look at each chic contender's ensemble. Teresa paired a white Vera Wang embroidered crop top with a voluminous Vera Wang skirt, then finished it off with metallic Christian Louboutin sandals. Analeigh stepped out in an Alberta Ferretti sheer gray schoolgirl dress that got its charm via a seriously sparkly collar. Her black patent leather pumps completed the look. From our vantage point, we see two actresses that supplied outfit intrigue courtesy of key embellishment details, and still (expertly) managed to keep their respective looks fresh, youthful, and sleek. The question now is: who gets your best-dressed vote?
Analeigh Tipton had a breakout role in Crazy, Stupid, Love last year, and she's back on the big screen in Warm Bodies, which is out on Feb 1. I chatted with Tipton at the film's press day in LA, where she talked about playing Teresa Palmer's onscreen BFF and having fun improvising with her costars. She also addressed the rumors that fans want to see her in Fifty Shades of Grey, saying that she'd like to see how bold she can get.
Elie Saab hosted an intimate dinner yesterday evening at the Crown in New York City, and Dakota Fanning, Emily Blunt, and Analeigh Tipton came out to show their support wearing the designer du jour. Emily Blunt — a long-time fan of the designer — selected a bright yellow dress, while Dakota Fanning went sleek and sophisticated in a peplum-adorned LBD. Watch on to see all of their gorgeous outfits from the evening. On Allison McNamara: MINKPINK top, BREN shorts
Damsel in Distress actress Analeigh Tipton attended a private dinner in NYC for designer Elie Saab in a red pantsuit by the designer, which she paired with a sheer black lace top. Analeigh has already solidified her fashion status with a handful of amazing looks, but this one takes the cake. The red pantsuit look has been done before, but we love how the actress injects even more bold excitement via sheer lace. Peep-toe Louboutins and Hoorsenbuhs for Forevermark diamond stud earrings complete Analeigh's bold-cum-sweet ensemble. Re-create this look for your next fabulous soiree and you'll no doubt stand out. For a less risque take on the outfit, wear a camisole underneath the lace top, or switch the lace for a solid black button-down.
Emily Blunt and Dakota Fanning dressed up for a dinner thrown by Elie Saab at Crown in NYC last night. Joining the two actresses was up-and-comer Analeigh Tipton, who stars opposite Adam Brody and Greta Gerwig in today's Damsels in Distress — make sure to check out our chat with Analeigh and her leading man to find out Adam Brody's dating philosophy. Emily is close with Elie, having worn his designs on the red carpet on multiple occasions. She donned one of his frothy dresses for the 2010 premiere of The Adjustment Bureau and again for last Fall's Emmys. Emily's hanging out on the East Coast after a stint in LA with her husband John Krasinski. She has some promotional work coming up in the Big Apple ahead of The Five-Year Engagement's April 27 release. The movie is set to premiere in just a few weeks as the opening feature at the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival.
