New York’s Fashion Week is already in full swing and Hollywood’s biggest stars have been making their presence known! On Friday, Jessica Biel was the host for the Dior and Saks Fifth Avenue dinner celebrating the brand’s Fall/Winter 2013 prêt-à-porter collection now available at the Fifth Avenue department store. Inside, the entire third floor was transformed into a hall of mirrors to showcase the winter collection along with inflatable mirror balls and live runway footage of the collection displayed on TV screens. The brand also took over Saks’ front window displays with visual installations that were inspired by the collection and custom made for the store. Guests included stylist and designer Rachel Zoe and her husband Rodger Berman, along with Ashley Madekwe, Maria Sharapova and more.

At tonight’s CFDA Awards in New York City, Oscar de la Renta will be presented with the Founders Award by pal and frequent de la Renta dresser Hillary Clinton. This is one of the most prestigious honors in the industry, so we’re offering our early congratulations for the 80-year-old designer. The Founders Award—given in honor of Eleanor Lambert, who founded the Council of Fashion Designers of America in 1962—recognizes people who have made their mark on the fashion world. De la Renta certainly has done that throughout his 45-plus year career, both on and off the runway. In addition to his romantic and feminine designs being a red carpet staple for Hollywood heavyweights Sarah Jessica Parker and Jessica Biel, he also helps usher in a new class of Oscar Girls, like Jessica Chastain and Allison Williams. Off the carpet, de la Renta also is a devout supporter of the arts, serving on the boards of several organizations, including The Metropolitan Opera, Carnegie Hall and the nonprofit New Yorkers for Children.
