The Met Gala is one of the most stylish and glamorous events on the calendar, and always brings out a star-studded mix of celebrities, designers and fashion industry insiders. Social media-savvy stars have been sharing bits and pieces of their Met Gala prep — this year’s exhibition theme is Punk: Chaos to Couture — but so far we’ve only seen small details, not whole looks, like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s nails or a swatch of Karlie Kloss’ Louis Vuitton gown. And which short-haired TV star could be adding hair extensions to her mane? Find out when you click through.
There were a few things weighing on the minds of celebrities this week — possibly not all of equal importance, though. Top of the list was marriage equality, with a couple of celebs writing about matters that are close to their hearts — and what has France done to get a mention from Ellen DeGeneres? Also on people's minds: Coachella, the annual music festival that kicked off in California this weekend — Jaime King, Joel Madden and David Spade all had something to say. . . and it's not all positive. Lucy Hale has found her dream man, Channing Tatum told us he loved us (kinda) and Rebel Wilson? We'll she's Rebbel Wilson — she's just funny by default.

Part girl-next-door, part glamazon, Brooklyn Decker's the kind of girl you'd love to hate if she wasn't so downright likeable. She's made the transition from Sports Illustrated cover girl to Hollywood actress seamlessly (and seemingly overnight); she's wife to Andy Roddick; and she might just be one of our favourite Twitter feeds to follow, too. Add to that a red carpet résumé that mixes cool-girl labels like Proenza Schouler one minute, then draws from Valentino or Giambattista Valli the next, and you can see how Decker has quickly become one of our favourite style setters. In honour of her 26th birthday yesterday, we're celebrating with a look at 26 of her best red carpet moments thus far. Click on and take note: this is just the beginning for the very talented (and very stylish) Brooklyn Decker!
For last night's Vanity Fair and Juicy Couture Vanities Calendar party in West Hollywood, the styles proved fun and flirty, and they certainly favoured leg-baring numbers. Olivia Munn, who also shared hostessing duties, stepped out in a navy-and-white tuxedo-inspired minidress by Bird, and paired the look with a Juicy Couture clutch and peep-toe pumps. Meanwhile, bold prints took center stage thanks to Jaime King's Alexander McQueen dress and Brooklyn Decker's matching top and skirt set from Preen's Spring '13 collection. Eva Longoria opted not to walk the red carpet — and worked a casual outfit inside — while Kate Mara, Ellie Kemper, and Minka Kelly turned out even more cool cocktail ensembles. See it all inside.
Celebrities turned out to toast awards season at the Vanity Fair Vanities Calendar party in West Hollywood last night. Eva Longoria, Brooklyn Decker and Ali Larter made the rounds with Olivia Munn. The Office stars B.J. Novak and Ellie Kemper were also on hand to bring some laughs to the party, while Kate Mara and her boyfriend, Max Minghella, partied after recently flying in from NYC.
The awards season celebrations won't be letting up anytime soon, as the Oscars are coming up on Monday, Feb. 25.

Brooklyn Decker, Amy Adams and Emma Roberts stepped out for a good cause at the Wantful: The Art of Giving benefit in LA on Monday. The event, which was hosted by Rashida Jones and benefited the International Rescue Committee, also brought out Rashida's Parks and Recreation co-star Amy Poehler, as well as Kristen Bell and Ali Larter. The group, including some of their significant others, posed for photos together before sitting down to dinner.
Emma was dressed in a silky black tee and striped Vena Cava skirt for the gala, a far cry from the look we last saw her in. She paid homage to her aunt Julia at a Halloween party over the weekend by re-creating the infamous outfit from Pretty Woman. Brooklyn talked about her own Halloween costume plans on Twitter, saying that she had picked a look that is both "scary and funny."
It was a chic who's-who battle yesterday, with Elle's annual Women in Hollywood celebration holding court in LA and the God's Love We Deliver Golden Heart Gala taking place in NYC. Where the latter is concerned, we were treated to a gorgeous mix of red-carpet looks courtesy of Gwyneth Paltrow, Brooklyn Decker, Karolina Kurkova, Olivia Munn, Chanel Iman, and more. The common denominator on the style front? Everyone donned their Michael Kors best. The iconic designer was honored, along with Glee creator Ryan Murphy, at the charitable event, providing a solid reason to dress the part. We love Karolina's perfect juxtaposition of feminine chantilly lace against a wintry long double-breasted wool vest. Gwyneth didn't disappoint with her body-con cut-out LBD and white pumps. And Brooklyn's brocade meets origami-cut shorts set makes us want to jump on the texture train 10 times over. As for the rest of the impeccably dressed crowd, just keep clicking to see who wore what.
Gwyneth Paltrow showed skin in a cut-out little black dress designed by Michael Kors at yesterday's Golden Heart Gala, benefiting the God's Love We Deliver charity, in NYC. She was joined at the charitable event by other Michael Kors-clad celebrities like Karolina Kurkova, a newly-brunette Brooklyn Decker and Anna Wintour. Michael himself had the honour of sitting between Bette Midler and Anna Wintour during dinner. Gwyneth took the stage to introduce Glee creator Ryan Murphy, who made a speech and even asked Bette if she'd make a cameo on Glee — to his relief, she said yes! Michael was also honoured at the fete for making a generous gift that will allow God's Love, a nonprofit that delivers meals to the seriously ill, to fund a new building.
The 2012 US Open is under way in NYC!
