What a week it's been! So much of this week's action has taken place in Australia, and it's been non-stop since the get-go. Baz Luhrmann brought his The Great Gatsby to town on a very rainy Wednesday night, and with him at the premiere were the film's stars Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, Joel Edgerton and Elizabeth Debicki, to name a few. The latest crop of CLEO Bachelors were announced, David Jones celebrated it's 175th birthday with a host of stylish stars like Megan Gale and Rachael Finch, and honorary Aussie Joel Madden went on a coffee run in Sydney with his adorable family. Elsewhere, Cannes kicked on and Kate Middleton made a sunny appearance at a royal garden party. Click through to see it all now!
Riccardo Tisci cast what he calls his gang — a group of people including Carine Roitfeld that are "very faithful to my style, and faithful as human beings" — in Givenchy's Autumn/Winter 2013 campaign.
The black and white photos, shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott and styled by Roitfeld, also feature Amanda Seyfried, models Mariano Ontañon and Dalianah Arekion, Spanish actor Quim Gutiérrez, and Roitfeld's daughter, Julia.
"I think it is a moment of history for me in fashion for my own gang," Tisci said in a statement, adding that in the campaign, "there is a gypsy feeling because it is the inspiration of the collection. Again, the reality of someone like Carine with her daughter showing real love or Quim with Amanda is very special to me. All of them, including the models, are real gypsies in their own life. They are never in one place. They travel the world."

When we spotted the print ad for Amanda Seyfried's fragrance campaign with Givenchy, we should have guessed the commercials would also have a masculine vs. feminine theme. As the new face of the Very Irrésistible scent, Amanda dons a fedora cap and trench coat, taking on the role of the sexy stranger. However, designer Riccardo Tisci doesn't miss the opportunity to showcase Amanda's feminine wiles. The spot ends in a sultry striptease (a somewhat strange thing to see in the midst of a Parisian cafe).
This year's Met Gala attendees gave us good reason to think two outfits are better than one. And who can blame Ashley Greene for trading her dramatic Marchesa gown for something a little shorter come afterparty? Those iconic Met stairs (read: not ornate-dress friendly) alone could prompt an outfit change, but we think it gives this A-list set another chance to show off one more great look before night's end. Case in point: Allison Williams's surprising dark and sexy twofer, courtesy of Altuzarra. Or how about Madonna's Givenchy Haute Couture tartan and fishnets get-up that turned into just fishnets all over? The beauty of seeing fashion's finest is actually seeing them at their finest, and that means outfit changes galore. Which stars were bona fide Met Gala quick-change artists? Find out right this way.
After weeks of waiting in anticipation, the Costume Institute Benefit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art has gone off with a bang. Sticking to the this year's theme, Punk: Chaos to Couture, models, actresses, and fashion fixtures are filled the red carpet in punk-inspired ensembles from the likes of Balenciaga, Maison Martin Margiela, Christian Dior, Christopher Kane, and Donna Karan. For a complete look at all the Met Gala glamour, just keep clicking to see who wore what.
The 2013 Met Gala may have given celebrities a chance to channel their inner punk rocker in NYC yesterday, but once the event drew to a close, it was clear that these edgy new looks were only meant to last for the night. Stars like Cameron Diaz and Miranda Kerr were spotted returning to their normal selves as they left the bash, with Cameron chatting on her mobile as she waited for her car and Miranda enlisting Michael Kors to help her navigate the stairs in her heels. Emma Roberts got help from Jaime King as she left the party, clutching onto her pal's hand as she carefully walked down the museum's famous stairs while Gwen Stefani made a smooth exit with Gavin Rossdale. Meanwhile, stars like Anne Hathaway and Taylor Swift were showing no signs of slowing down, using the mass exit of celebrities as a chance to catch up with their favourite small-screen stars like Game of Thrones' Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and New Girl's Zooey Deschanel.
Of course, just because the Met Gala wrapped up, that didn't mean the party had ended. Anne, Miranda, and many more celebrities hit up the after party at the Boom Boom Room later to dance the night away.
We're suckers for dramatic red carpet looks and the actresses who embrace them. Porcelain-skinned Amanda Seyfried didn't disappoint, scaling the Met Gala's much-lauded red stairs in a Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci silk-chiffon gown with a train that cascaded over the lower steps. Add in Fred Leighton chandelier earrings and, well, we're sold. What do you think about the look? Did it take your breath away or leave you wishing for something else?

Amanda Seyfried just landed another beauty deal: she's the new face of Very Irresistible Givenchy. As the current spokesperson for Japanese luxury brand Clé de Peau Beauté, playing a beauty muse is no new gig. But she's clearly excited to take part in a fashion house that she's been a longtime fan of. When asked to be the new face of the Givenchy fragrance, she said, "F-ck yeah," WWD reports. "I'm proud to be a part of [the brands I'm involved with] because what they do is really cool, especially Givenchy — they're so artistic." The fair-skinned beauty just finished shooting the TV and print campaign ads, which were styled by designer Riccardo Tisci. You can expect to see them starting this Fall. And we're excited to see Amanda decked out in more Givenchy as she promotes her latest films, Lovelace and Epic. Now, if only she could score a hair care deal.

Amanda Seyfried graces the cover of May's Allure Magazine, which is also its annual Look Better Naked issue. Amanda has gained notoriety for her turn in Les Misérables and was a red carpet fixture during awards season festivities. Next up, she's starring in The Big Wedding alongside Topher Grace, Robert De Niro and Katherine Heigl. In the publication, Amanda flaunts her figure in a low-cut floral dress and gets candid about body confidence, singing live in Les Misérables, and portraying pornographic actress Linda Lovelace in her upcoming biopic. Here's more from Amanda Seyfried in Allure:
- On playing Linda Lovelace: "Maybe this is backwards, but because she found the power in herself and in her body at a point, it made me feel comfortable in my own skin in a way that I hadn't been."
- The advice she was given by her vocal coach for Les Mis: "'Imagine deep-throating a penis, get that feeling in the back of your throat, and then sing. That's where your larynx is.'"
- On her breasts: "I saw a picture of them a couple of days ago from when I was 19, and my boobs were way bigger . . . There was something so beautiful about the size of them. When I look back, I'm like, 'Why did I always give myself such a hard time?' Nobody gave me sh*t about it except me."
- On a reporter assessing that she has the "face of an extraterrestrial": "I like that. I'd rather not be ordinary-looking. I want something different about me. We all want to be originals."
