Our favorite looks this week—plucked from our Look of the Day section—were all stunning and unique, thanks to major movie premieres and Paris Fashion Week. Jessica Chastain sat front-row at Saint Laurent in a red dress, Emmy Rossum did her best Dorothy in Oscar de la Renta at an Oz screening, Gwyneth Paltrow sizzled in black leather leggings at Hugo Boss‘ fragrance launch, Blake Lively looked pretty in plaid at a press event, and Jessica Alba suited up for Stella McCartney in the designer’s trim suit.

Emmy Rossum stepped into the wonderful world of Oz at last night’s screening of Oz the Great and Powerful in New York, hosted by Gucci and The Cinema Society, by wearing a look inspired by the story’s heroine, Dorothy. “It’s Oscar de la Renta,” she said of her silk dress, an aquamarine design embroidered with three-dimensional flowers. “I would say it’s a little Oz-inspired.” She chose it after looking at the designer’s pre-fall 2013 collection online—she famously styles herself, handpicks her outfits, and emails designers—and pulled the look straight from the runway (“I loved it!” she added). She topped it off with ODLR’s ivy and aqua satin pumps—though, we think red sparkly shoes would have also been a fitting option.

Beautiful Creatures is now open in theaters, and it’s a story that will have you focused just as much on the costuming as the romance at the center of the plot. Why? Because, while the film tells the love story between Lena (Alice Englert) and Ethan (Alden Ehrenreich), Emmy Rossum’s character Ridley Duchannes adds a stylish element to the dynamic—on purpose—with Victorian goth-like costumes created by costume designer Jeffrey Kurland. “A lot of who my character is, is her ability to manipulate people in the way she looks,” Rossum told InStyle.com at the New York premiere. “She dresses up and channels different old Hollywood movie stars like Marilyn Monroe in River of No Return or Rita Hayworth in Gilda. So, there are a lot of big moments that are carbon copies of the way the actresses looked in those films.” And she loved it! “It was really fun to re-create. It was definitely very different than anything else I’ve ever played before,” Rossum said.

There really were some Beautiful Creatures on the film’s New York premiere red carpet last night! Stars Emmy Rossum (in Christian Dior) and Viola Davis (in New York & Company) screened the film at the Tribeca Cinemas, and told InStyle.com how their fantastical costuming helped tell the boy-meets-girl tale with a magical twist. “A lot of who [my character] Ridley is, is her ability to manipulate people with the way she looks,” Rossum told InStyle.com at the event, hosted by The Cinema Society and Dior Beauty. “It was definitely very different than anything else I’ve ever played before, and a lot of the looks were very throwback, channeling Marilyn Monroe and Rita Hayworth.” See the costumes for yourself when the film opens Valentine’s Day.

Emmy Rossum is having quite the moment! The third season of her Shameless just premiered, and her next film, the Southern Gothic Beautiful Creatures, is out on Valentine’s Day. But even so, she managed to squeeze in some studio time, returning to her singing roots—remember her turn in Phantom of the Opera?—to create her latest album, Sentimental Journey, in stores today. The collection of 13 retro songs from the swinging ’20s all the way up to the rocking ’60s, bundled up with butterfly-covered album art, were chosen to create a “musical calendar,” Rossum said. If you’re looking for some mood music for a certain upcoming holiday, we’re sure she picked out a romantic jam for February!
