We're talking about Marion Cotillard, Jessica Chastain, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Isla Fisher, Eva Longoria, and Kerry Washington, and the list goes on.

From a classic white pump to a metallic sandal to a fun pop of color via a crossbody bag, it's all fair game. Click through to see how 46 celebrities styled their LWDs, then put your own spin on it.
Following Monday's historic tornado that devastated the Oklahoma City area, there has been an outpouring of support from public figures, celebrities, and everyday Americans. President Barack Obama addressed the nation from the White House Tuesday morning, expressing his severe concern and promising federal aid for the victims and families. As search and rescue teams scour the disaster grounds, celebrities have also been taking advantage of social media to share thoughts, prayers, and words of encouragement. Oklahoma natives Olivia Munn and Carrie Underwood gave personal accounts and hopes for fellow Oklahomans, as did Kristen Chenoweth, who also asked her followers to donate to the American Red Cross and Humane Society relief efforts. Click through to see how public figures and celebrities are coming together to support tornado victims.
Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon kept the party going at the Time 100 Gala in NYC last night. The two friends, who were named two of the magazine's 100 most influential people in the world this year, were joined by Justin's wife, a Tom Ford-clad Jessica Biel, and a Lanvin-wearing Claire Danes. Also out were honorees Lena Dunham and Vice President Joe Biden, who took the chance to work the room of Hollywood stars. Other guests included Amy Poehler, Steven Spielberg, Daniel Day-Lewis, and Christina Aguilera, who performed at the event and hobnobbed with Lena on the red carpet.
Inside the bash, the stars wasted no time celebrating the honorees. Justin and Jimmy danced around the room and goofed off with Amy and musician Frank Ocean. Lena commented on getting on the Time 100 list, saying that the first person she told about being on the list was her father. She said, "I called my dad because he was a layout editor at Time in the 1970s, so I was super psyched, and I wanted to tell him that I was making good in his former institution. I heard there was a drinks cart when he worked there." Meanwhile, Daniel, who picked up the best actor award at this year's Oscars, commented that he is "more than mildly astonished" that he landed on the list.
The annual Time 100 Gala inspired another round of red carpet glamour, with Jessica Biel and Olivia Munn leading the star-studded pack. And what better occasion to dress to the nines than in honor of some of the world's most influential people? With Biel in black, head-to-toe Tom Ford, Munn in bright canary-yellow Michael Kors, and Claire Danes in a more exotic Lanvin look, the night played host to a spectrum of black-tie ensembles. Lena Dunham wore a shimmery number from Saint Laurent's much-discussed Saint Laurent Fall '13 collection and Christina Aguilera went the siren route in formfitting Victoria Beckham.

Thanks to Julianne Hough and Olivia Munn, a trip to the nail salon has never looked so good. But more than their collective ability to look amazing en route to a mani-pedi appointment, the well-dressed pair have inspired us to follow suit on their Spring-minded styling, perhaps as soon as this weekend? Hough's soft pastel look — distinguishable by its accents — and Munn's vibrantly printed Lovers + Friends Kitty Cat dress ($206) supply our next round of warm-day dressing with two ways to wear the season's prettiest pieces. See our quick takeaway tips below.
Julianne Hough's perfectly proportioned combo really came down to a great white-and-mint pairing. To get the same look, try this Vince Sheer Pocket Tee ($195) or a similarly loose-fitting white top that does well by the half-tuck. Then, add a tapered ankle-cut pant (which flatters most body types) in a minty hue à la Aryn K's pant ($79). You can play with your own accessories or play copycat with a pair of nude jute-soled sandals, oversize sunglasses, and a blush-colored snakeskin chain-strap bag.
The Bold Route
Olivia Munn didn't waste any time making an outfit statement, and all she needed to do it was one very bold printed maxi dress. We're currently loving this MinkPink Scorpio Sleeveless Maxi Dress ($99) as an alternative version. To finish with equal parts subtlety and finesse, add your favorite pair of black sunglasses, a neutral-toned tote (like her Botkier Aldyn satchel, $300), and sandals.
At the 30th annual PaleyFest in Beverly Hills last night, Ginnifer Goodwin and Olivia Munn both chose eye-catching dresses for their appearances. At the Once Upon a Time event, Ginnifer's pretty confection popped thanks to the orange hue and sheen of her jewel-embellished dress by Raoul, which she finished with white ankle-strap sandals. For The Newsroom festivities, Olivia also opted for a stem-baring silhouette in a white J. Mendel mini with a deep-V neckline. She completed her look with gold-and-white ankle-strap pumps and a white box clutch. Both actresses shined in their ensembles, but which look gets your vote?
Olivia Munn stepped out this weekend with enviable eye makeup that proved you can get a glowing look without the need for glitter. At PaleyFest, Olivia opted for a bronzed metallic shadow for a casual take on the typical black smoky eye. To accent the more neutral color, Olivia added a touch of sheen to her cheeks, eyes, and lips for a dewy finish that made her appear even more radiant than her natural olive complexion. In order to mimic her look, use a cream shadow like Nars Vintage Duo Cream Eyeshadow ($34), layering the shimmer on top of the brown hue in the center of the lid. The rosy pink color on her cheeks and lips didn't detract from the main statement: a mahogany spin on a classic favorite.
The carpet wasn't the only thing that was red tonight. Some of our favorite actresses — and nominees — arrived at the Academy Awards in the eye-catching hue. Both Sally Field and Jennifer Aniston reached for Valentino dresses; Field opted for a long-sleeved number with semisheer panels, while Aniston decided on a timeless princess-gown silhouette. Not to be outdone, Olivia Munn and Marcia Gay Harden went for body-con gowns, also in the standout color. One thing's for sure: these ladies certainly painted Hollywood's biggest night red.
For last night's Vanity Fair and Juicy Couture Vanities Calendar party in West Hollywood, the styles proved fun and flirty, and they certainly favored 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.
