Julianne Moore, Naomi Watts and Drew Barrymore wore Elizabeth Taylor's finest pieces of jewellery to celebrate the late actress' 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 jewellery 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 on Feb. 25.
Kate Walsh showed off her bikini body when she hit the beach in Miami yesterday. Kate, who turned 45 back in October, wore a black two-piece as she lounged with a small group of friends on beachside chaises before taking a dip in the ocean. Kate is currently enjoying her time off after wrapping filming for the final season of Private Practice. The final episode for Private Practice is expected to air sometime in early 2013, but there has been some fan buzz that Kate's Addison could make a return to her original haunt, Grey's Anatomy. Kate's now had time to hit the party scene. She was most recently spotted celebrating at last week's Rodeo Walk of Style event with Drew Barrymore and Cat Deeley in LA.
Drew Barrymore dressed up for a night on the town without husband Will Kopelman or daughter Olive yesterday. She attended the Rodeo Drive Walk of Style event honouring Bulgari in LA and presented an award to Nicola Bulgari himself. Other guests included Kate Walsh, Cat Deeley, Revenge's Christa B. Allen, and Brad Goreski. It's been an exciting year for Drew, who married Will and welcomed baby Olive. She recently spoke to Ellen DeGeneres about her new relationship status, saying, "I'm so lucky. It's amazing! I never take it for granted." Drew also spoke about Olive and shared that she and Will picked their child's name while reading a book when Drew was three months pregnant.
Emma Watson hit the red carpet in Armani for her The Perks of Being a Wallflower premiere in LA on Monday night. She posed hand in hand with her co-star Nina Dobrev, who donned a sexy Reem Acra dress, along with the rest of the Wallflower crew, Kate Walsh, Dylan McDermott, Ezra Miller, and Jackson Rathbone. Ezra even brought a cardboard cut-out of Logan Lerman, who wasn't able to make the star-studded affair. Shailene Woodley was on hand to lend her support for the film as well. The West Coast premiere was the latest stop on Emma's promotional tour. She linked up with Nina to premiere the film at the Toronto International Film Festival this past weekend, and last week stopped by the Late Show in NYC to chat about the coming-of-age film. Emma also hit the MTV VMAs last Thursday, and will grace the cover of Glamour's October issue.
InStyle's 11th Annual Summer Soirée on Wednesday night had us craving the sunshine even more than we were already! Stars including Jaime King, Sophia Bush, Khloé Kardashian and Nikki Reed were out in a series of floaty and floral frocks, and the beauty on show was inspiring. Sophia wowed us with her balayage and dark red lips, while Jaime looked polished and very feminine with a sleek ponytail (ah, the power of a good pony!). There was even a cute headband offering from a now brunette Australian export Emilie de Ravin. Click through and don't forget to zoom!

Nicole Richie and Diane Kruger both went with black, but mixed it up with sheer panels and hot cutouts at the 2011 UNICEF ball at the Beverly Wilshire last week in LA.

Diane Kruger had her own tropical vacation recently: she spent Thanksgiving lounging in retro bikinis alongside hot boyfriend Joshua Jackson.
