You’re going to look at your dinner table in a whole new way after watching Butter. The comedy—starring Jennifer Garner, Olivia Wilde, Modern Family’s Ty Burrell, Ashley Greene, Alicia Silverstone, and Hugh Jackman—lands in theaters today. “I’m just excited for people to see it and have a good time,” Garner told InStyle.com at the New York premiere. She plays Laura Pickler, an aggressive butter carver vying for the top prize, and Wilde plays her competitor, Brooke Swinkowski. “I’m really proud of it,” Wilde told us. “I think people will like it, because it’s so unique, and it’s genuinely funny.” If you can’t make it to theaters, the movie is also available On Demand as well as on amazon.com. “It’s a great movie to grab all your friends and watch together and have a fun night and a butter-theme party,” Garner suggested. What would she serve? “There’s butter in everything good in life, from sugar cookies to chocolate chip cookies to any pastry of any kind—even on top of a steak,” she says. “You can’t go wrong with butter!”

Rachel Zoe may have presented her spring 2013 collection during New York Fashion Week, but the celebrity stylist-turned-designer staged a whole different kind of fashion show when she traveled to Europe for the Paris fashion shows—her own! The 41-year-old is a famous overpacker. (The photo above, showing the 13 suitcases she took to Paris with her last season, went viral.) During this trip, we spotted 12 looks in seven days. “I wish that I could say that I was a better packer,” Zoe told InStyle.com recently. “I’m a very organized packer, but I’m not good at editing. I like to have options. It’s always better to have choices rather than have nothing to wear.” Ah, choices, choices — we should all be so lucky to have so many!

The wife of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney will soon add TV anchor to her resume. Ann Romney is slated to guest-host ABC’s Good Morning America next Wednesday, Oct. 10, according to the Associated Press. She’s been in the limelight a lot recently, especially for her TV appearances—the fashion world spun into a frenzy when she appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in head-to-toe black leather. And now we finally know who whipped up that edgy number: It was New York-based couture designer Alfred Fiandaca, who also created the all-white suit (a look from 2006, according to The Cut) she wore for the presidential debate this week. We’re already thinking about what she might wear on the show next week. Since her last two outfits were monochromatic neutrals, might she brighten up her look a bit with some primary colors? Tune in during the 8 a.m. hour next Wednesday to find out…
