Julie Bowen has a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants philosophy to style, but there is one thing that is non-negotiable: Prada. “If it says Prada, I don’t throw it out,” the Modern Family actress told InStyle.com at the Huggies Hawaiian and Baby2Baby Luau Event recently, where she wore a vintage green summer dress by the Italian label. “This is vintage Prada, top-to-bottom, and these are my vintage Prada shoes,” she explained. “I’ve held on to all of this since the ‘90s in the hopes that it would come back.” Not only did the pieces come back—she saved them! “I got the shoes on eBay, and I had to sew up the straps of the dress this morning,” she said. “I’m very handy with a needle.” We’d say so! Tell us: Is there anything you just can’t throw away in your closet?

Busy Philipps and Julie Bowen (in Prada) got in the tropical spirit to co-host a Huggies Hawaiian and Baby2Baby luau in Beverly Hills, which supported the organization’s mission to provide Los Angeles families in need with essential baby gear. “I’ve been involved with Baby2Baby since I became a new mom myself,” Philipps told InStyle.com. “You realize it takes a village and that’s why getting involved in a charity like this is so important.” Huggies pledged to donate 22 million diapers this year.

New York-based designer Naeem Khan enjoyed some one-on-one time with his star fans at a private dinner he hosted at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles. The designer, shown with Angie Harmon, dressed each of the attendees in one of his creations: Jordana Brewster in a taupe and turquoise printed pleated number, Ellie Kemper in an olive and sand dropped-waist crystal beaded dress, Harmon in a turquoise chiffon and lace embroidered caftan, The Help star Ahna O’Reilly in a white faille dress with gold circle lace-applique, and Julie Bowen in a sleeveless ostrich feather mini. It was an especially special evening for The Office and Bridesmaids star Kemper, who celebrated her 32nd birthday yesterday. See more stars at last night’s hottest events in the gallery.

See all the stars who wore tangerine this year—so far—in the gallery.

While Julie Bowen (in Temperley) and Sofia Vergara (in Marchesa) both wore similar shades of fuchsia to the SAG Awards, the Modern Family co-stars didn’t coordinate together. “I clearly didn’t plan my colors with Sofia,” Bowen told InStyle.com at the after-party. “I usually email her shortly before an awards thing and I go, ‘What are you wearing?’” And she wishes she remembered to do that this time: “I don’t want to wear the same color as her because you look like you’re wearing the junior men’s version of whatever she’s wearing,” Bowen said. “I feel like the teen boys’ department version of Sofia!” We think both ladies looked gorgeous!

Look who brought some sexy back to the SAG Awards! Kyra Sedgwick‘s red-hot Emilio Pucci gown featured additional peekaboo side slits, the backside of Julie Bowen‘s magenta Temperley London look draped like a reverse cowlneck, Angelina Jolie‘s halter Jenny Packham design cut just above her bottom, and Ahna O’Reilly‘s crimson Nha Khanh style fully exposed her vertebrae. And The Help star told InStyle.com she chose her look for that exact reason: “What you see is what you get,” she told us on the red carpet. “I tried on a number of dresses, but I loved this one right away. I wanted something sleek and modern.” Way to go, ladies—we’ve got your back!
