Red wine looks good in a glass, and on your nails! Cameron Diaz, Rachel Zoe, and Mandy Moore all stepped out wearing the deep Bordeaux shade on their digits, and we can’t get enough of the statement-making color. If you want the same look, take note—dark hues like this one tend to stain nail beds, so swipe on a good base coat to create a barrier on your natural nails before lacquering up.

Have you ever bought an entire outfit you saw in the window display? Perrey Reeves did when she dropped by Club Monaco recently, and she wore her purchases to the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center benefit at the Sunset Tower Hotel last night. “It’s straight of the rack, which is kind of fantastic,” Reeves told InStyle.com of her navy dress and vintage-inspired bag, both from the retailer. “I was walking by the store and saw some really cute displays in the window. I went in and I kind of went wild. I’m a big fan of buying whatever you love and not limiting yourself.” And this look is going to be one of her new staples: “I’ll wear it again. Why not?” Find both pieces—the Adelphie dress for $199 and the Cora wristlet for $120—in stores now, or pick up the beaded bag at shopbop.com.

Anne Hathaway presented her stylist pal Rachel Zoe with the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center’s first Visionary Award at a benefit held at the Sunset Tower Hotel last night. “Rachel is loving, caring, fun, and as we all know, fierce,” the actress said on stage. “She’s a fierce friend, she’s a fierce stylist. She’s a fierce designer, wife, sister. She’s a fierce mother. And tonight we celebrate her as a fierce advocate and ally.” Zoe accepted: “This is the best award I’ve ever received—by a long shot!” See who else attended last night’s hottest parties, including Elizabeth Banks and Kelly Ripa, in the gallery.
Mandy Moore swiped glossy red on her pout for last night’s Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Center benefit—a color she pulled from her own makeup pouch. “It’s my own lipstick by Tom Ford,” she told InStyle.com on her way into the event. “I’m normally pretty boring, but I’ve been into wearing a bold lip lately in my everyday life.” Well, she’s proving it’s fun to switch things up sometimes! Find the same hue, Scarlet Rouge by Tom Ford, for $48 at bergdorfgoodman.com. Plus, click through the gallery for more great lipstick tips.

This weekend, Lauren Conrad Tweeted a picture of her new pink strands—and we got the inside scoop on how she created it! “We used chalk!” her colorist Kristin Ess told us exclusively. “It’s a super-fun way to temporarily color your ends because it washes right out. But it’s best when worn in a bun because it will get on your clothes.” Ess also told us that she and Conrad will be posting a full how-to on their site thebeautydepartment.com tomorrow. And this isn’t the first time Conrad tried color: she previously worked peach tips and blue highlights. (The latter look has been tried on over 100,000 times in our virtual Hollywood Makeover Tool since she got them in September!) Tell us: Do you like her new hue?
