Great Outfits: Jennifer Love Hewitt

This is just an achingly pretty dress, which paired with the shoes gives Jennifer a really lovely old-movie glamour. As a fair-skinned lass, I know it's tough to wear that pale pinky color without it washing you out. This one is perfect: She's all woman, brimming with curves that demand to be celebrated.

Jennifer wore her delicately beaded Max Azria design with long waves, dangling diamond earrings and a Judith Leiber clutch.

"For special events, wear comfortable shoes under the longest dress possible."

Styling Tips for Hourglass Figures
~Make the most of a small midsection. Cinch dresses, jackets and sweaters at the waist.
~To elongate a curvy body, wear cardigans or lightweight jackets that graze the hips.
~Avoid low-rise jeans. Ones with a fitted waist won't gape at the lower back.

Great Outfits: Christina Ricci

Christina Ricci helped Chopard celebrated 150 years of excellence at The Frick Collection in New York City.

Christina never disappoints and this occasion was no different.

She stuns wearing a vintage Galanos haltered gown from Decades Inc. in a pea green color. The gown works perfectly with her skin tone and jet black locks. I just love those ruffles around her shoulders.

By keeping her accessories to a minimum she doesn’t detract any attentions away from her stunning gown.

Christina Ricci made by jaw drop as she sizzles in this Atelier Versace sheer gown with a plunging neckline that plays up her curves to perfection. Sexy at its best, in my opinion.

Christina wears a gorgeous Monique Lhuillier jacquard dress with black pointy pumps and a black satin clutch.

Christina Ricci brought some va-va-va-voom in a slinky green dress from The Row, designed by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen as black pumps by Givenchy.

"Because my eyes are hazel, the more purple I use, the greener they look," says Ms. Ricci, in a sexy Louis Vuitton LBD.

There is something pleasingly melodramatic about this photograph to me. It's as if Christina Ricci is attending an old-timey ball at which she expected to be the belle -- until, while standing near the bottom of the stairs, she caught sight of her previously plain, unthreatening archrival descending the steps, capturing the attention of every eligible bachelor in the joint by wearing a fabulous, cleavage-tastic dress.

Christina Ricci added sparkle to her Atelier Versace couture gown with Chopard gems.

Christina played it sweet in this Bill Blass mixed floral dress worn with a 50's-inspired flip, cream Manolo Blahnik pointy pumps, a B. Romanek clutch, Bulgari gems—and a tan.
I don't like the dress, but Christina looks confidently beautiful, so I can't protest. Her earrings are stunning with her sweet makeup and must-have hairdo!

Christina is surprisingly fresh in a steel-gray minidress with strappy platform sandals.

~Christina was subtly sexy in a loose leg-baring design with a peek-a-boo back. A blouson dress is an easy summer date outfit—if you have narrow hips choose one with a fitted skirt, like Christina's, or, if you are curvier, consider a fuller style that can be belted at the waist to accent your hourglass figure.

Christina accessorized with not one, but two jeweled Prada brooches, adding the perfect amount of flash to her classic Prada sheath. Vintage or modern, pinned at your waist, shoulder or even in your hair, brooches are an easy way to add style to even the simplest of looks.

Ms. Ricci wears a cloque teal Prada dress with a sheer bodice and a bejeweled waistline.

Christina showed off her curves in a ruched little red dress with cutout sides, worn with buckled Brian Atwood metallic pumps and a classic Chanel bag.

Great Outfits: Isabel Lucas

The Runaways Fashion

In New York City to hype the release of their rock flick The Runaways, Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart(Fanning plays Cherie Currie, the all-girl band’s lead singer, while Stewart channels Joan Jett) told us how the vintage costumes helped transport them back to the days of the pre-punk era. “I’ve never played that kind of character before,” said Fanning, who sports school uniforms and denim jumpsuits in the film’s early scenes but later struts the stage in fishnets, platform heels and barely there lingerie. Her favorite fashion moment? “Putting on a corset and performing ‘Cherry Bomb’ was the best,” she says. To channel Joan Jett, Stewart underwent a real-life makeover, cutting off her tresses and dying her crop black. The actress’s resemblance to Jett’s teenage self resulted in a few surreal moments for the present day rock icon. “She really does look a lot like me in the film,” said Jett of Stewart’s dead-on portrayal. “Except I didn’t wear leather all the time. And I don’t think I ever wore leather pants!”

In the Joan Jett-inspired movie, The Runaways, Kristen Stewart plays the music legend, Dakota Fanning plays band member Cherie Currie—and they both look incredibly ’70s chic in this exclusive, never-before-seen photo from the set. “I designed The Runaways eyes around Make Up For Ever shadows,” said Robin Mathews, makeup department head. For Stewart’s smokey eyes, she smudged a mix of black liner and metallic taupe and brown black shadows on the lids. Fanning’s eyes were rimmed in navy blue liner and topped with copper and blue shadows.
