The drama is heating up on The Good Wife! After Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) broke away from Lockhart Gardner, the firm re-enters her life by way of subpoenas. But she can hack it, of course, thanks to a powerful wardrobe that keeps her looking as sharp as her wit. “The look is so clean and architectural this year,” costume designer Daniel Lawson told InStyle.com. Her looks last night included a black and white Escada jacket, a navy leather and suede No. 35 suit and a gray flannel Salvatore Ferragamo pantsuit. “These were some of our most favorite outfits of the season,” Lawson added. And they were sharp, indeed. Flip through the gallery to get all of the details.
Charlize Theron, Gwen Stefani, And More Celebrate At The Wallis Annenberg Center For The Performing Arts Inaugural GalaOct 18, 2013 @ 6:29 pm
Last night Beverly Hills was buzzing with excitement and star power as guests gathered to commemorate the Grand Opening of The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts — a brand new venue that will produce and present outstanding theater, music, and dance, with special programming for children. Visionary and co-chair of the evening, Wallis Annenberg, along with fellow co-chair Jamie Tisch, hosted a night sponsored by Salvatore Ferragamo that truly honored and celebrated the arts. Those in attendance spoke about the importance of the performing arts and how it shaped their own lives. “My work is art so you know, I live art almost every day. So I really appreciate it,” model Alessandra Ambrosio said. Others mused about childhood memories. ”I took dance. I took ballet, and the first recital I did, I had to wear a clown hat with pink and black polka dots. And I still have pictures of it,” Maria Bello told InStyle, speaking to the lasting impact the arts has had on her life. To open the evening, guests were treated to a special performance entitled A Dream In An Envelope starring Kevin Spacey and Diane Lane, and featuring dancers from the Paris Opera Ballet, dance sensation Lil’ Buck, and Grammy-winning violinist Hilary Hahn. During dinner, Ferragamo presented its Spring 2014 collection in a runway show, which included new looks designed exclusively for the occasion by Ferragamo’s Creative Director Massimiliano Giornetti. Others who came out to support the event included Gwen Stefani, Gavin Rossdale, Rachel Zoe, Charlize Theron, Josh Duhamel, Freida Pinto, Camilla Belle, Demi Moore, Karolina Kurkova, Jason Bateman, and Amy Adams. “I think it’s an exciting event to be a part of. I love theater, I love the performing arts. Getting children interacting with art, getting them interacting with each other and with their community, there’s only good things that can come of that,” Evangeline Lilly said. Additionally, the evening included an unveiling of a Ferragamo pop-up shop within the Center’s Grand Hall, featuring an exclusive line of accessories reflective of the brand’s roots in Los Angeles.

Maria Bello stars in two films currently touring the Toronto International Film Festival — Third Person and Prisoners — which meant she had to pack a big suitcase for the double round of press tours. She wore coordinating monochromatic outfits at event after event, so much so that by her fourth single-color outfit we had to find out her motivation. “Let me tell you,” she leans over and says when we chatted inside InStyle’s portrait studio at the Windsor Arms Hotel. “I’m not 20, I’m 46. I believe in dressing appropriately for your age. If I have to see one more older woman on the carpet with a thing cut down [the whole front] and everything hanging out, I don’t like it.” Instead, she found her inspiration elsewhere. “I enjoy the way French women dress. I enjoy the sophistication, and a lot of that is classic-cut suiting, monochromatic, subtlety, and good tailoring.” She defined the look with (from left) patterned blue Pink Tartan, red Marc Jacobs, winter white Dolce & Gabbana and navy blue Salvatore Ferragamo. She promised to continue the trend — which she did when she appeared at the Third Person premiere in a white Donna Karan look last night — save for the red suit. That is now destroyed, thanks to a moment at the Artists for Peace and Justice luncheon during TIFF. “I got up on stage and said if someone gives $5,000 I’ll jump the pool [that was there] with the Marc Jacobs suit,” she recalls. “Someone gave $20,000! I jumped. It was hysterical, and it was for charity.”

Ahna O’Reilly made her first-ever Cannes Film Festival experience a memorable one! The actress has put on a full fashion show in the French Riviera, as she showed up to event after event in high-fashion looks. The latest we love: This Monique Lhuillier design, which she paired with Salvatore Ferragamo shoes, H. Stern earrings, and a Jennifer Behr headband—and she gave us the exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the process to get her red carpet-ready. “I felt amazing in the dress,” she told InStyle.com exclusively. “Ever since I put it on for the first time, I knew it was what I wanted to wear. Walking the red carpet in Cannes for the first time was surreal, and a total dream come true.” Click through the gallery for a closer look, and get details from her glam squad, including stylist Caley Lawson, hairstylist Kylee Heath, and makeup artist Kindra Mann on how they made her dream a reality.

Jennifer Aniston walked the red carpet at last night’s Academy Awards in a gorgeous Valentino gown from the designer’s spring 2013 Haute Couture runway. The star’s strapless, full-skirted red dress echoed the advice of celebrity stylist Cher Coulter: “Red always looks good on the red carpet—especially Valentino red,” said Coulter. “The color’s a no-brainer if you want to go classic and you want to stand out.” Aniston finished off her look with Salvatore Ferragamo heels and her signature layered locks. And she isn’t the only one who took a dress from runway to red carpet: George Clooney’s main squeeze Stacy Keibler looked striking in a studded column gown by Naeem Khan, which debuted at New York Fashion Week less than two weeks ago. When we asked Khan if he had any Oscars dresses in the works, he wasn’t so sure if he’d see one of his designs on the red carpet. “There are so many of them! Those kinds of things aren’t so easy, so we’ll see what happens!”
