The Berlin International Film Festival kicked off earlier this month — yes, there is life outside of Fashion Week — and we're catching you up on all the glamour straight from the red carpet abroad. Amanda Seyfried stepped out for the premiere of her film Lovelace in an apropos blue lace Elie Saab gown; Charlize Theron glowed in a strapless Gucci gown at the Cinema For Peace gala; and Anne Hathaway exuded a darker kind of evening elegance in her Chanel Couture pick at the Les Misérables premiere. And that's only the beginning. For more stunning Berlin ensembles, courtesy of Emma Stone and Rooney Mara, keep clicking.
Think the runways of New York were the only places that offered major style this week? Think again. Between the BAFTAs in London, the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, and the store openings, movie premieres, film festivals, and parties everywhere else, this week's best-dressed posse may be the bestest yet. Click through to see all the superchic looks — including Emma Stone's cool Stella McCartney ensemble at the Berlin Film Festival (left) and all the front-row snaps from Fashion Week — right here in the slideshow.
The Berlin Film Festival may not get as much coverage as Cannes or Sundance, but the stars don't hold back when it comes to their beauty looks. Charlize Theron showed off her recently shorn hairstyle and Anne Hathaway revealed yet more ways to wear a pixie. See all the celebrities transition their looks from daytime press conferences to nighttime red-carpet events as they hit the German circuit.
It's been a star-studded few days in Berlin, where Anne Hathaway, James Franco, Rooney Mara, and many more celebs have popped up to premiere their films at the Berlin International Film Festival. Today, Rooney Mara and Jude Law met up in the German capital to present their film, Side Effects. Earlier in the festival, a Chanel-clad Anne linked up with Les Misérables costar Hugh Jackman to promote their hit project. Their costar Amanda Seyfried was pulling double-duty at the festival, where she premiered Les Misérables as well as her upcoming film Lovelace with James Franco and Peter Sarsgaard. Matt Damon dropped by last Friday when he and costar John Krasinski introduced their film, Promised Land. Click through to check out all of the action in Berlin!
Charlize Theron chose a strapless Gucci gown and Tiffany &Co jewels for the Cinema For Peace Gala during the Berlin International Film Festival today. She was honored at the event for her work as the founder of the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project, which supports the fight against HIV and AIDS spreading among South African youth. Charlize received a similar honor last month, when she was awarded for her humanitarian work during the Crystal Award Ceremony at the World Economic Forum in Switzerland.
Charlize will be back in the spotlight in a few weeks since it was recently announced that she'll be making a special appearance during the Oscars — fill out our Oscars ballot before Feb. 24 for the chance to win $1,000 and an iPad!
Matt Damon linked up with his Promised Land costar John Krasinski and director Gus Van Sant for the Berlin Film Festival premiere of their movie. The snow didn't stop the trio, who were together earlier today for a press conference and photocall, from signing autographs for fans and posing for pictures — Matt even captured a few snaps on his own phone! It's been a fun few days overseas for Matt after he met up with pal George Clooney on Wednesday. Matt and George grabbed dinner with friends as they gear up to get started on their new project. The duo are working together on Monuments Men, which is expected to start filming next month.
Matt Damon and John Krasinski promoted their film, Promised Land, at the Berlin Film Festival earlier today. They were joined by director Gus Van Sant as they attended a photocall and a press conference to discuss the film. Promised Land opened in theaters back in December, and now the movie is up for several prestigious prizes at the festival.
John and Gus aren't the only famous faces that Matt is hanging out with in Berlin. Earlier this week, Matt grabbed dinner with George Clooney and several other friends in the German capital. The two actors will reunite this Spring for Monuments Men, which George will direct, write, and also star in. Joining forces with George again isn't the only excitement coming up for Matt; he also has the highly anticipated release of his new HBO movie, Behind the Candelabra, coming up later this year.
Jake Gyllenhaal joined his fellow 2012 Berlin Film Festival judges like directors Anton Corbijn, Mike Leigh, and Francois Ozon, as well as actress Charlotte Gainsbourg, for their closing ceremony last night. They wrapped up the cinematic fun following a week of screenings, photo ops, and press conferences. Angelina Jolie, with her In the Land of Blood and Honey, and Robert Pattinson, who debuted Bel Ami, were among the stars who trekked to Germany for events — check out all the Berlin Film Festival pictures. Last night, statues were handed out to honor the best work seen at the festival. Jake personally handed off the best actress Silver Bear to Congolese actress Rachel Mwanza for her performance in War Witch. Other honors went to the Danish movie A Royal Affair and Germany's Babara. The best picture distinction went to Italy's Caesar Must Die.
The Berlin Film Festival has taken over the German capital for the last week. Many of Hollywood's biggest stars headed to Europe to show off their films, including Angelina Jolie with her In the Land of Blood and Honey. Brad Pitt was by her side for a big premiere, but other celebs rolled through without their significant others. Robert Pattinson posed for photos alongside his Bel Ami buddies Christina Ricci and Holliday Grainger. Jake Gyllenhaal, Diane Kruger, Michael Fassbender, and Clive Owen are among the other celebrities who attended — click through to see our roundup of all the Berlin pictures!
Michelle Williams made a bold entrance at today's Berlin Film Festival photocall for her My Week With Marilyn. Michelle chose a modern minidress by Kenzo for the event; however, earlier this week she opted for a dramatic pink Dior for the Paris premiere. Michelle's portrayal of Marilyn Monroe earned her a best actress Oscar nod, and she's up again fellow contenders Meryl Streep and Viola Davis. The race is going to be extremely close with each of the ladies already winning at least once this season. Michelle took home the Golden Globe while Viola earned the SAG Award, and Meryl most recently was honored with the BAFTA win. There's a little more than a week to go until the Feb. 26 Academy Awards, so be sure to fill out your 2012 Oscar predictions for a chance to win an iPad 2 16GB Wi-Fi and a swanky Prada case!
