Anna Kendrick (in an Elie Saab dress and Brian Atwood shoes) and Joe Manganiello hit the after-party for the premiere of their new film, End of Watch, in Los Angeles. The film, which also stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Michael Peña, and America Ferrera, hits theaters this Friday. Click through the gallery to see who else came out to toast the film, and more stars from last night’s hottest parties!
America Ferrera and Amber Tamblyn showed their support for Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants co-star Alexis Bledel during opening night of her new Off-Broadway show, Regrets. The Gilmore Girls actress made her stage debut in the drama, set in 1954 on a Nevada desert “divorce ranch.” Click through the gallery to see Hilary Swank, Lily Collins and more stars at last night’s hottest events.
America Ferrera wed her longtime boyfriend Ryan Piers Williams Monday night! The Ugly Betty star went for a big gown look, choosing a tiered pleated tulle dropped-waist dress with a French corded lace bodice by Amsale’s Christos label. (Check out the “J’Adore” style from Christos’ fall 2011 collection here.) She completed her look with a floor-length veil. The couple said their “I dos” in front of a small crowd of friends and family, including Vanessa Williams, Rebecca Romijn, Jerry O’Connell, and Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants costar Blake Lively, People reports. Congratulations, newlyweds!
The annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner drew loads of stars to Washington D.C. Saturday night, where strapless and asymmetrical dresses were the look of the evening. Mila Kunis (right) chose a simple black Versace number with thigh-high slits and unexpected back pockets, while Brooklyn Decker went for a cherry-hued Giambattista Valli frock whose neckline highlighted her new short ‘do. Scarlett Johansson also showed off her latest hairstyle in a sea foam green Elie Saab dress that offset the color of her freshly dyed red bob.

Ugly Betty may have just ended, but America Ferrera is on to new beginnings: Yesterday, the actress confirmed her engagement to longtime beau, director Ryan Piers Williams. And the 26-year-old accessorized her one-shoulder Alice+Olivia dress with her new diamond ring (with what looks like an antique-inspired setting and beautiful round center stone) at the premiere of The Illusionist on Wednesday. Congrats to the happy couple!
“Tomorrow morning is my last Ugly Betty scene evah!” Michael Urie tweeted on Monday. “Think if I don’t show up, it’ll mean they can’t cancel us?” Sadly, the fate of the show has already been decided, but that doesn’t mean the tight-knit cast is going their separate ways. Tonight they’ll gather for a wrap party in N.Y.C., where guests will get to sing karaoke with backup from a live band (we’d die to see Urie and Becki Newton perform a duet in character as their awful alter-egos, Marc and Amanda!) and on April 12th, they’ll help America Ferrera host an auction of Betty-inspired artwork (inset) to benefit Save the Children. No word on whether the group will get together to watch the series finale on April 14th, but we know we’ll be glued to the TV. Earlier this year show creator Silvio Horta admitted that a love match between Betty and Daniel “is not outside the realm of possibility” and now our sources hint that a few will-they-or-won’t-they moments in the final two episodes will keep us in suspense until the very end. Tell us: Should Betty and Daniel end up together?
Move over Wilhelmina! As Ugly Betty draws to a close, America Ferrera’s title character finally gets to play a sophisticated sexpot on the ABC series. Last week, Betty Suarez looked like a true fashion magazine editor, dressed to kill in a sexy Victoria Beckham Dresses LBD (the same peplum waist dress we’ve seen on stylish beauties like Blake Lively, Jennifer Hudson and Beckham herself)—she’s come a long way from the braces and mismatched plaids we’ve grown to tolerate over the last four seasons! Don’t miss the final episode of Ugly Betty—and hopefully some more runway-worthy looks—airing on April 14th at 10 p.m. EST on ABC.
