Vanity Fair and Vera Wang Celebrate the Opening of the Designer's New Rodeo Drive Boutique

‘Vanity Fair’ and Vera Wang hosted a chic opening party of the designer’s new Rodeo Drive boutique in Beverly Hills, California on Wednesday (June 18), where starlets supported the celebration dressed in their Vera best.

Victoria Justice
: The actress selected a multicolor 3-D sequin flower slip dress from the Resort 2015 collection, which she belted and wore with an ivory Edie Parker box clutch. Chartreuse satin Brian Atwood pumps added a bold, unexpected punch.

Kaley Cuoco: Rocking her new cropped pixie haircut, Kaley wore a Pre-Fall 2014 marine-blue flocked floral taffeta top with pleated back detail and matching pin-tucked, skinny pants. Black heels and an oblong clutch contributed a more polished edge to the looser, pajama-inspired silhouette. Is that new ’do edgy or aging?

Rosamund Pike: Her Pre-Fall 2014 dark-green confetti sequin basketball shift dress was shiny and sporty—even sportier with the addition of her sheer mesh jacket. Ankle-strap pumps finished the look, as did an unnecessary Ana Khouri white gold Olympia necklace.

Celebrities Love The Lanvin 'Sugar' Bag

Starlets have been lavishing special attention on the Lanvin ‘Sugar’ bag, which hails from designer Alber Elbaz’s Pre-Fall 2014 collection.

It boasts a sweet name, but the purse is far from overly saccharine. The ideal fusion of luxe styling and functional design, the leather shoulder bag has a soft quilted satin finish with a chain-link strap for just the right dash of tough edge.

Its versatility is more than evident among the trendsetters who swing the ‘Sugar’ over their shoulders.

Zoe Saldana attended Cannes Film Festival’s ‘Relativity at Ten’ luncheon with the bottle-green version, adding a sophisticated finish to her vibrant Etro printed dress. Jessica Alba likewise opted for the same coloration, infusing the feminine floral-mesh Tanya Taylor dress with her handbag.

Proving that the ‘Sugar’ can even sweeten a trip to the gym, Diane Kruger matched her red purse to her running shoes, while Sarah Jessica Parker likewise showed that the bottle-green bag looks just as good for a casual, dressed-down stroll around town.

You can buy the Lanvin ‘Sugar’Bag in black from Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman.

Olivia Palermo's Pattern Play Inspiration

The Spring 2014 runways saw a rush of print-spiration at every turn—from painterly pop art and abstract graffiti brushstrokes to more ethnic motifs, striking digital prints and whimsical geometric collections of dots, lines and circles.

But rather than sending mixed messages, the mash-up of patterns proved a delightfully fresh way to wear the designs—which the celeb set was none too shy to model.

Resident trendsetter Olivia Palermo brought her street style to the next level when she indulged in a bit of pattern play.

Monochrome took on new meaning when she combined a striped Tibi top with a polka-dot Tibi blouse and checkerboard, high-waist Zara shorts for a super-chic assortment. Even her Nathalie Trad clutch provided another contrasting pattern, while those green Aquazurra wrap pumps couldn’t have been a better accessory to add a splash of sophisticated colour to the mix.

Design houses gave us even more mixed prints to consider, including Rodebjer’s loose silhouette of bold black-and-white stripes, Holly Fulton’s playful, swirling peach and pink polka dots, and Libertine’s ladylike blouse-and-skirt blend of dotted fun.

Cameron Diaz In Roland Mouret - 'Sex Tape' Barcelona Photocall

Cameron Diaz was at the photo call for the movie, ‘Sex Tape,’ today (June 18) in Barcelona, Spain.

The actress wore an ivory Roland Mouret asymmetrical cocktail dress, which featured the designer’s signature structured and folded bodice.

Perhaps the body-con frock was a pinch too fitted, but she did match the red-and-white, step-and-repeat cutouts behind her rather nicely.

Her toned arms may have been her best asset here. She accessorized the rest of the look simply with a few gold bangles, Chelsea Paris ‘Yemi’ heels and a smoky eye.

Eva Longoria In Pamella Roland - 60th Taormina Film Fest

After Eva Longoria arrived via Maserati at the 60th Taormina Film Fest in Italy on Tuesday (June 17), she made a quick-change into something a bit more formal for an appearance later in the evening.

Working one of her favoured silhouettes, the actress glided around in a red Pamella Roland Fall 2013 strapless mermaid gown with a long train.

The bodice of the dress, which featured body-con seaming and exposed, black corsetry detailing, was quite snugly fitted—perhaps a smidge beyond necessary.

However, she did soften the look with loose waves and a petal-pink lip. The black pumps should have been exchanged for a sandal.

Some of you took issue with her earlier Taormina look. Does this one fare any better?
