Celebrities showed their support of the Children’s Defense Fund’s 23rd Annual Beat The Odds Awards held at the Beverly Hills Hotel in California on Thursday evening.
Reese Witherspoon: The actress, who was sporting a shorter hairstyle, wore a blue Michael Kors camouflage-jacquard sheath dress with black panels, which she styled with Casadei ‘Blade’ pumps with a gold ankle strap. You may remember that Sigourney Weaver wore this same dress last month.
Katie Lowes: Keeping up the sleeveless-dress–black-pump trend at this event, the ‘Scandal’ actress donned a Rachel Roy printed dress with body-contouring black panels, which she styled with a Paula Cademartori ‘Kate’ black leather bag with gold hardware.
Jennifer Garner: The actress hasn’t worn anything exciting, note-worthy or memorable lately, and this black Valentino dress with a white lace overlay keeps that track record going.
They are all dressed event appropriately, with Reese the standout here for me.

Here is a round up to the rest of the looks from the Black Girls Rock! event, which was held at New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, New Jersey on Saturday, October 26, 2013 to honour legendary singer Patti Labelle.
Kelly Rowland: The singer is never one to shy away from a (strategically) revealing ensemble, and with this Alon Livne Fall 2013 jumpsuit, you get just that. The embellishments and half-sleeves on top gave way to a sheer pant silhouette on bottom. To finish, she wore Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Christian Louboutin heels.
Tatyana Ali: The actress went the glamorous route in a white Michael Costello fishtail gown, which boasted a dramatic rosette detail at the shoulder, a subtle geometric cutout at the midriff, and a metal-plated B-Low the Belt ‘Vanity’ belt at the waist. Her look was completed with a soft updo, red lips, and Erickson Beamon jewelry.
Keke Palmer: Opting for something elegant and just a little bit celestial, the actress wore a black sparkle Novis ‘Dovima’ gown. Her loose curls, flawless make-up, and minimal accessories were the appropriate complement to such an eye-catching dress.
Stacy Keibler looked edgy in Rachel Roy on the Met Gala red carpet.
The actress one of the few guests who went for a short look tonight, and the studded, sheer-sleeved custom dress was perfect for the occasion–plus it shows off her most famous asset–those legs.
Stacy usually wears her hair up on the red carpet, and if it is down, it’s polished and smooth, so her textured waves is a major departure, and I like it. It’s definitely edgier than her normal style, and perfect for the night’s theme.
Do you like Stacy’s short cocktail dress, or do you think a long gown would have been more appropriate?
FYI. She wore Jacob & Co jewels.
The red carpet met its match in a crimson-clad Freida Pinto, who sizzled at the Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles’s Opening Night Gala at ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood yesterday evening.
The actress stunned in a Rachel Roy Spring 2013 dress, worn in a much hotter shade than the taupe look-book version. On this occasion, the red feels far more appropriate.
While the one-shoulder silhouette and ruffled peplum detail of the dress seem vaguely familiar, even ubiquitous, at this point, I appreciate the effortless chic factor of this look.
To accessorize, she carried a Thale Blanc clutch and wore a Joan Hornig brass lizard cuff. Metallic gold shoes thankfully stood in for a black pair.
We don’t often see Freida with her hair worn down and straight. But with her trendy fringe bang, it was a fresh—and sultry—way to finish this look.

Jenna Dewan-Tatum was glowing on the red carpet yesterday evening at the 2013 Oscars, which was held at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles.
The last time she hit the red carpet, we speculated that she was pregnant – which was later confirmed, but on this occasion she proudly showed off her baby bump wearing a Rachel Roy Pre-Fall 2013 black lace gown.
Her elegant cap-sleeve gown with a modified neckline, was one of the sexiest maternity looks I think we have ever seen on the red carpet.
I love how she manages to maintain her sexy persona while still having that mum-to-be glow.
Her brunette locks were teased into a wavy updo with sparkling Irene Neuwirth jewels, a satin Christian Louboutin clutch and Brian Atwood heels completing her look.

My heart skipped a beat when I saw Odette Annable on the red carpet for the Warner Bros. and InStyle Golden Globe Awards After Party in LA on Sunday evening.
The actress looked divine wearing a Rachel Roy Spring 2013 asymmetrical gown in a vibrant purple hue with a neon-yellow trim along her skirt.
What made my heart go pitty-pat were her neon-yellow pumps, which make this look.
A lesser shoe would’ve dulled the fizz of this spectacular look.
Like most actresses on Sunday night, Odette opted for a barely-there makeup look, with an acid-green clutch providing the finishing touch.
