Hollywood’s brightest stars and indie film’s freshest faces hit Park City, Utah for the Sundance Film Festival, and in between the screenings and parties, some of our favorite actors—like Naomi Watts and January Jones—warmed up at InStyle‘s photo studio, hosted by the Grey Goose Blue Door. Kate Bosworth swung through with the cast of Big Sur, a film directed by her partner, Michael Polish. “This year, I’m with the love of my life,” she told InStyle of her festival experience. “It’s wonderful to wake up in the morning with not only your artistic partner but your lover and tackle the day. I’m so proud of the film and I’m so proud of him and I’m so proud of what we did together that it’s a wonderful experience to be here.” Click through the gallery to see six never-before-seen photos from inside the studio, and then flip to page 133 of InStyle‘s brand-new April issue—or download it to your iPad, Nook, or Droid tablet—to see even more beautiful snaps by celebrity photographer Eric Ray Davidson.

Parisian designer Vanessa Bruno loves dressing American women! Hart of Dixie star Rachel Bilson and Kate Bosworth (who modeled in one of Bruno’s campaign videos) are both big fans of Bruno’s feminine, classically French clothes and accessories, and the adoration is mutual. “[Rachel] is a fantastic girl. Love her,” Bruno told InStyle.com at the grand opening of her New York popup shop. “I think they all capture this very chic, Parisian, easy-going [attitude]—but I still have a little twist of American girl in a chic, easy way. They catch it very well.” Bruno also told us that Sarah Jessica Parker and Scarlett Johansson were recently spotted shopping in her Paris and Los Angeles boutiques. Luckily, if you’re not near a store, you can find her clothes on net-a-porter.com, otteny.com, and farfetch.com. Tres chic!

Kate Bosworth turns 30 today! The screen star first turned heads more than a decade when she played a sun-kissed surfer girl in 2002′s Blue Crush. Since then, not only has she scored major roles in films like Superman Returns, but she has secured herself a spot on plenty of best-dressed lists, including ours! The recently-engaged star also just recently proved she can carry a tune in a collaborative holiday video with Topshop, and can design as the co-creator of JewelMint. Is there anything this Los Angeles native can’t do? Celebrate her 30th by clicking through the gallery to see how she’s transformed over the years.
It can be a daunting task to find the perfect outfit for New Year’s Eve, which is why we turned to celebrity stylist Cher Coulter for advice. “The holiday season is no time to be a wallflower,” said the stylist, who works with Kate Bosworth and Elizabeth Olsen. “If your dress, jewelry, and shoes are standout, keep the hair sleek and the make up pretty and not too heavy.” For those who prefer to tone it down, she suggests striking a different balance. “If you decide on more understated holiday attire, then make a statement with a strong red lip and maybe a more interesting blowout or up-do.” Her bottom line: Don’t be afraid to mix it up!
