This week was all about bright colors and even brighter stars. We kicked things off with Katie Holmes at the red carpet launch of Narciso Rodriguez’s DesigNation collection for Kohl’s.

Going out this weekend? Whether or not you’ll be in costume, InStyle November cover star Halle Berry’s smoldering silver eye makes for the perfect accent to any ensemble. We love how the star’s version embodies all the classic elements of a sexy smoky eye, but gets an update with a touch of pewter. “To keep the feeling strong on Halle’s modern, yet romantic Dolce & Gabbana lace dress [which the actress wore to her Cloud Atlas premiere], I created an eye look with blended charcoals and shimmery silvers to complement the silver colors in the dress,” said her makeup artist, Kara Yoshimoto Bua, who used a combination of Revlon’s Eye Shadow Palette in Siren ($8 at revlon.com) and the Creme Gel Liner in Charcoal ($9 at revlon.com) to create the look. Ensure that your smoky eye lasts all night by using the cream liner all over your lids as an eye shadow base, then layer the powder eye shadows on top. The smooth base keeps shadow from sliding around, allowing you to spend less time touching up, and more time enjoying the party.

The middle child of Sharon and Ozzy turns 28 today! Kelly Osbourne basically grew up before the eyes of the American public, having first won us over on The Osbournes reality show in 2002 alongside little brother Jack and the rest of the family (dogs and all!). Ten years later, Kelly’s all grown up and has made quite the name for herself in fashion circles, as co-host of E!‘s Fashion Police and a regular red carpet commentator at awards shows like the Emmys. She is also known for her head-turning purple hair, which she matched to her dress at the aforementioned ceremony in September. Here’s wishing Kelly a very colorful birthday!
