It's been a huge week for celebs this week, with the 2013 Met Gala dominating the agenda for most, and movie screenings entertaining everyone from Miranda Kerr Carey Mulligan and Leo DiCaprio. Jennifer Lawrence and Sarah Jessica Parker shared a funny moment on the red carpet at the Met Ball, while Beyoncé's dramatic arrival sent the photographers' flashes into overdrive. Blake Lively got back to business after a long break from the spotlight (those legs look longer than ever!), and Baz Luhrmann was flanked by his stars at a special showing of The Great Gatsby.

Yes, the Met Gala may have dominated the fashion headlines this week (did you see the gowns?). But, that doesn't mean we didn't have other stylish opportunities to serve our search for this week's best-dressed celebrities. Miranda Kerr and Sarah Jessica Parker's versions of dressing down — Miranda wore a loose Vivienne Westwood jumpsuit and Alexander Wang heels to a showing of The Great Gatsby, SJP wore a vintage floral dress — proved to be some of our favourite looks of theirs. . . There's something about stars not trying too hard that we love. Kate Bosworth made a case for flared skirts (hers by Miu Miu), and of course, we're still impressed by some of the Met Gala style winners — namely, Rooney Mara and Rosie HW. Want more? Right this way!
Anne Hathaway and Sarah Jessica Parker brought Hollywood to the art world when they attended the Tate Americas Foundation Artists Dinner in NYC yesterday. Anne wore a pink Givenchy dress and styled her new blonde hair in a chic '60 pixie cut. Meanwhile, SJP wore a vintage floral dress and Fendi cuffs as she chatted with Anne inside the party. Both Anne and Sarah Jessica had crossed paths earlier this week when they both attended the 2013 Met Gala on Tuesday. They weren't the only stars still basking in the post-Met glow — Alexa Chung, who attended the ball earlier this week, also dropped by the Tate dinner and got a chance to chat with Anne and her husband, Adam Shulman. Ciara and Martha Stewart also attended the artsy affair.
The hair and makeup at the Costume Institute Benefit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art is consistently some of the best of the year. And with a theme centering around the Punk: Chaos to Couture exhibit, high drama was a must-have look. But surprisingly, the best looks of the evening ran the gamut of sophisticated rebel to all-out rocker. Sarah Jessica Parker wowed the red carpet congregation with an over-the-top Trojan headpiece that was nestled among a twisting collection of fishtail braids. Nicole Richie was also a surprising arrival, sporting a wispy, gray beehive that was part powdered wig and part punk. Speaking of wigs, Madonna opted for a Bettie Page-inspired hairpiece, complete with short, blunt bangs.
Moving on to the blondes of the ball, Sienna Miller went all-out grunge with a seriously textured hairstyle embellished with a studded hairpiece, inky black liner, and a nude lipstick. And in one of the more jaw-dropping moments of the evening, Anne Hathaway stunned with a peroxide blonde bouffant, accented with lavender shadow and loads of liner. Whether they were giving punk a sophisticated spin or going completely chaotic, these five ladies stole the show in their own right. But who was your pick for the best punk beauty look of the Met Gala? Vote on all of our Met Gala polls here!
We didn't expect anything less than punk perfection from Sarah Jessica Parker. Nedless to say, the actress killed it in an ensemble comprised of a black and gold printed Giles Deacon gown, tartan thigh-high boots by Christian Louboutin, and an outstanding Philip Treacy mohawk headpiece that only she could pull off. The look channelled a major punk-meets-glam vibe, which she furthered with decadent Fred Leighton jewellery. Do tell — are you loving her look?

This week saw movie premieres, a magazine relaunch party and a Prada-hosted party — among other events — so needless to say, it was a stylish seven days. Nicole Richie was all-white on the night of an AOL event; her Saint Laurent dress turned heads for all the right reasons and her own head was looking fine thanks to a new 'do. Zoe Saldana was every inch the leading lady at a Star Trek premiere, with her unusual Vionnet gown wowing from all angles, while here in Australia at the CLEO relaunch party, Nikki Phillips gave a lesson on why less is more (especially when Isabel Marant is involved). There was plenty more fashion action — click on to see who rounds out our top 10!
Between new haircuts, updated styles, slicked locks and lots of ombré, hair certainly stole the show in this week's celebrity beauty round-up. Nicole Richie set the pace with her first official appearance since she took a trip down fringe lane (hubby Joel Madden didn't notice — ah, men), while Kate Middleton mixed things up with wavier hair than usual (not to mention that pregnancy glow). But it wasn't all about hair. Isla Fisher totally stole the show at The Great Gatsby world premiere, thanks to her bright red lips and cats-eye liner — see that look and more when you click through!
Nicole Richie and Sarah Jessica Parker both wore white at the launch of their new digital series with AOL in NYC yesterday. Nicole was at the event to talk about her new show, Candidly Nicole, which is based on her Twitter feed. The first episode of Candidly Nicole has already been released through AOL On and revolves around Nicole trying to get her "tramp stamp" tattoo removed. She said during the video, "[The tattoo] just means a certain thing and I don't want to be a part of that group." Meanwhile, SJP will be going behind the camera for her new upcoming show, City.Ballet, which follows the drama behind the scenes at the New York City Ballet, and will premiere in September. The two stars were joined at the event by Tracy Anderson, who is also making her own show with Gwyneth Paltrow, titled Second Chances. The digital series will follow Tracy and Gwyneth as they interview women who have overcome various hardships.
Nicole Richie and Sarah Jessica Parker must've been on the same wavelength last night, both turning up to the Digital Content NewFront event in New York City in similarly white shifts. Nicole brought out her inner beatnik, donning a modish long-sleeved high-necked shift and a pair of slick pointy toed pumps. SJP also worked the same shoe-shape, but it suede khaki to set off her metallic-flecked party dress. To further the bling, she added a bejewelled bib-necklace and substantially-sized pair of drop diamond earrings. Minimal versus embellished, simple versus sparkly — which look do you prefer?
