Bebe launched its new fall #be9to5 campaign featuring model Nina Agdal at the Provocateur club in New York City last night, and the model’s friends Katrina Bowden and Coco Rocha joined to celebrate their pal while donning their very own Bebe looks. “It’s always good to come out for your fellow fashionistas,” Rocha told InStyle.com. “I had a long day at work, so it’s nice.” And that’s just what the new collection is all about—it celebrates the Bebe women who love to go out and live the 9 p.m. to 5 a.m lifestyle. Bowden and her musician husband, Ben Jorgensen of Armor for Sleep, are already fans. “My husband loves Bebe, so whenever I go he’s like, ‘I need to go with you and go shopping, and tell you what I want you to wear.’ He loves it!” Click the photo to see more of this week’s star-filled fetes.
Katrina Bowden presented Stella & Dot founder Jessica Harrin and chief creative office Blythe Harris with the Retail Innovation Award at last night’s 2012 Accessories Council Excellence Awards Gala bedecked in jewelry from the company. “I love how they have so many wearable, everyday pieces,” the 30 Rock star told InStyle.com. “They have so many fun layering necklaces, and stackable bracelets, I find something for every day.” And she certainly found a lot for last night’s event, as she paired her Jennifer Hope black lace dress with Stella & Dot’s Chantilly Lace Cuff ($98), the Nina Bracelet ($49), and the On the Mark Necklace ($49), all available on stelladot.com.

Katrina Bowden accessorized her white Amsale gown at the Screen Actors Guild Awards with a gorgeous new accessory—an engagement ring! Her rocker fiancé, Ben Jorgensen of the band Armor for Sleep, popped the question just the night before in a suite at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles. “It was a huge surprise,” the 30 Rock star told InStyle.com. “We’d talked about it, but I didn’t know when it was going to happen.” And the sparkler—a cushion-cut with two princess stones on each side—was perfect for her taste: “It’s a beautiful ring. I like antique, gorgeous rings.” Between this and the white dress—she already looks ready to walk down the aisle!

Celebrities kicked off New York Fashion Week last night by marching down the runway for a cause. Camila Alves, Cat Deeley, Suzanne Somers, Denise Richards, Dita Von Teese, Ann Curry, and more all wore red dresses by designers for The Heart Truth’s Red Dress Fashion Show, which raises awareness for the foundation that spreads information about heart disease for women on a national level. “As women, we’re all nurturers and caretakers,” Deeley, in Alberta Ferretti, told us before the show. “But you can’t do that unless you take care of yourself.” Click through the gallery to see all the celebrities who walked at The Heart Truth’s Red Dress Fashion Show!
