L’Wren Scott held her fashion show during London Fashion Week for the first time ever on Sunday—and no one liked it more than Nicole Kidman. Just a few hours after this curve-hugging cerulean sheath with an embellished gold collar hit the runway, the actress pulled the look to wear at a special screening of her new film, Stoker, in London that evening. The bold design also scored Kidman a nod in our Look of the Day lineup. The perks of being a celebrity!

Celebrity stylist Eric Archibald had an important goal in mind when he prepped Jennifer Hudson for her big pre-game performance of “America the Beautiful” with the Sandy Hook Elementary School survivors. “Jennifer wanted simple and classic,” Eric said in a statement. “She herself has overcome great tragedy and it was all about paying respect to the moment.” Archibald used the simple black-and-white Monika Chiang, L’Wren Scott, and Saint Laurent outfit to “highlight the emotional tones” of the performance, with one exception: the bright green ribbon Hudson wore to commemorate the December school shooting that claimed 26 young lives. “Little children being survivors like that…that’s the part that took me back in,” Hudson said. “They are conquerors, they are survivors. And they’re babies.”

Jennifer Hudson performed “America the Beautiful” with the Sandy Hook school choir at last night’s Super Bowl in a sleek black and white ensemble, and you can score her look. The singer paired her L’Wren Scott white pencil skirt with a Monika Chiang leather turtleneck body suit ($795 at monikachiang.com) and ankle-strap stilettos by Saint Laurent ($895 at ysl.com). Sharp!

No one was safe from the hilariously witty weaponry hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler brought to the stage at last night’s Golden Globe Awards, but when it came to fashion, the ladies kept it very classy. When they hit the red carpet, Fey was outfitted in a dress by L’Wren Scott while Poehler chose a pantsuit by Stella McCartney with a stunning diamond necklace (to the tune of 83 carats set in platinum) by Chopard. For their first on-stage costume change, Fey slipped into a high-glam sparkling teal column by L’Wren Scott, and Poehler chose a deep-plunging burgundy dress from McCartney. And to close out the show, Fey brought her style full-circle while Poehler put on another McCartney creation, a sparkling black cocktail dress—an appropriate choice, since the hosts did an on-stage toast! What did you think of the hosts’s looks?

“I think it’s so incredible!” Carolina Herrera told InStyle.com of Fashion Group International 29th Annual Night of Stars Gala last night, held at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City, which honors the industry’s biggest stars. The always-elegant Herrera radiated a joyful glow all evening, and for good reason—she earned the acclaimed fashion organization’s prestigious Superstar Award, presented to her by her close friend Renee Zellweger. “Carolina Herrera helps women see themselves with confidence and celebrates their great life by making them unforgettable,” Zellweger told the attendees, which also included Kelly Ripa and Seth Meyers’s girlfriend Alexi Ashe dressed in Herrera designs. “She is a visionary.” The gala’s theme, Dream Catchers, also captured the feeling of dreams realized by the night’s Star honorees, Derek Lam (“I will continue to work hard to truly deserve this recognition,” he said), Gareth Pugh, and Haider Ackermann (the latter accepted his honor from Karl Lagerfeld). Meanwhile, Sarah Jessica Parker presented the Lord & Taylor Fashion Oracle award to L’Wren Scott—“She has the ability to telescope what’s necessary, what’s needed, and what people want,” Parker told InStyle.com—while Viola Davis presented the Brand Heritage Award to Max Mara’s Nicola Maramotti. “It seems like every time I put on a Max Mara dress or a coat or a suit, it enhances what I am, it does not hide what I am,” she said of the brand. “Fashion can not be worn, it has to enhance what’s already inside you.” With so many fashion stars in one place, Davis also emphasized that everyone has a little star quality in them, too. “It’s the people who are not afraid to take risks, the people who are confident and comfortable with themselves,” she told InStyle.com. We couldn’t agree more.
