The Time 100 Gala, held to celebrate the magazine’s list of 100 most influential people in the world, took over New York’s Lincoln Center last night! It was quite the star-packed affair, with celebrities including Justin Timberlake and his wife Jessica Biel (both in Tom Ford), Claire Danes (in Lanvin), Girls creator Lena Dunham (in Saint Laurent), Michael Kors, and Olivia Munn (in a dress by the designer) mixing and mingling at the event. The festivities included performances by Miguel and Christina Aguilera, as well as a rousing speech by Vice President Joe Biden who asserted to the audience, “This list is unified by a simple belief that it’s all about basically not being told it can’t be done.” Click the photo to see more.
When Tommy Hilfiger opened his Los Angeles flagship this spring, it wasn’t just a night dedicated to socializing with his celebrity friends like Jessica Alba, Jennifer Lopez, and Julianne Hough. The milestone was also the launch of the Tommy Hilfiger Corporate Foundation’s partnership with P.S. ARTS to endow and develop a multi-year arts education curriculum in two Los Angeles schools, Walgrove Elementary School and Grand View Elementary. The Hilfiger-funded program will help students with autism and other special needs achieve their full academic and career potential by providing over 950 students with ongoing, weekly arts classes. “[My wife] Dee and I are passionate about programs that make sure families dealing with issues like lack of access to medical care and education have access to the resources they need,” Hilfiger told InStyle.com, adding that he’s thrilled to help students by providing “dynamic and innovative learning environments.” And his celebrity fans were happy to throw their support behind the cause. ”I love that [Tommy Hilfiger] advocates for children’s education,” Alba told InStyle.com. “I just love that they support those issues.” Visit psarts.org to learn more about the program, and see more exclusive photos from inside the opening on page 110 of May’s new InStyle issue—also available on your iPad, Nook, or Droid tablet.
When we see great hair, we have to ask, “What’s your secret?” Thankfully, stars like Nicole Kidman, Olivia Munn, Emmy Rossum, and Jaime King were happy to oblige with the behind-the-scenes scoop on their red-carpet ‘dos.

Olivia Munn doesn’t want to get locked in to wearing one kind of style, which is why she always walks the red carpet in different kinds of looks. “Sometimes I’ll go in and think I know what I want, but then I’ll change my mind,” Munn told InStyle.com at the People’s Choice Awards. “I know now, from doing more red carpets, if I put something on and think, ‘I like it. Sure, it’s a little sexier, but maybe it’s not too much,’ it might just be. I’ll look at the photos later and go, ‘Oh wow. That was a lot. That was a lot of boob. And I didn’t want that!’” For the future, expect her in something “that feels pretty and not sexy,” she said. “And it has to be comfortable! You shouldn’t force yourself into anything.” Words to live by!

Olivia Munn has one surefire spot to turn to for holiday gift ideas: Gwyneth Paltrow’s goop.com! ”I did that last year for gifts for people, and I’m doing it again this year,” Munn told InStyle at our Miss Golden Globe Party of Paltrow’s blog, lifestyle site, and store. “I was actually just on it earlier today!“ Though, even with Paltrow’s picks, she’s still searching for the perfect items. “I’m having a hard time figuring out what to get everyone!” Munn said.
