2007's Girls About Town
2007's Girls About Town
The Posh Party Girl
She's a legend in the UK, but now Victoria Beckham is ready to conquer America. Since Beckham and her soccer star husband, David, officially arrived in Hollywood-with sons Brooklyn, 8, Romeo, 4, and Cruz, 2, in tow-they've been the toast of the social scene and caused a media frenzy from the Sunset Strip to the local Toys 'R Us. What does she think of coming to America? "I'm just hoping people do get it and don't truly think that I do sunbathe in high heels and a bikini and a full face of makeup," she told Parade magazine. One thing is for sure, she's already spicing things up.

The Social Songbird
From Hollywood to the Hamptons, Mandy Moore is at the top of every guest list. Though the summer of 2007 was just heating up, the last thing on Moore's mind was taking a vacation. In the month of June she released an album, hit the red carpet to promote her romantic comedy, and got fashionistas in a fall frame of mind with the latest collection from her vintage-inspired knitwear label, Mblem. Moore also traveled to the heart of Texas to show off her designs at F.I.G., a showcase of contemporary apparel showrooms in Dallas' Art District. "[This] is one of my creative outlets and I tend to shy away from calling myself a 'designer,'" Moore told the Dallas Morning News. "I want the line to speak for itself."
The Glam Globetrotter
Katie Holmes got her first taste of fame playing the fresh faced Joey Potter on the WB series, Dawson's Creek. Since then she's gone on to star in blockbusters like Batman Begins and win applause from critics in indie hits like Pieces of April. Career success plus a high profile marriage, A-list friends and an incredible sense of style make Katie one woman we can't stop watching.
The Movie Star Mom
A wardrobe malfunction delayed Jennifer Garner's arrival at the UK premiere of The Kingdom, but she still looked picture perfect by the time she hit the red carpet. "The zipper split-I had people sewing from the bottom, people sewing from the top!" a calm and cool Garner explained of the emergency maneuvers required to fix her stunning Temperley London gown. The multi-tasking Garner balances her work on the stage and screen and a laid-back home life-not to mention the occasional fashion emergency-with husband Ben Affleck and daughter Violet like a true Tinseltown pro.
The California Girl
might be off the air, but Mischa Barton still attracts plenty of fashion fans. The willowy beauty inspires with her ultra-hip sense of style and conjurs visions of iconic '70s rocker chicks. The ultra-exclusive Soho House set up shop in the hills above the Sunset Strip for its annual Oscar-time hideaway, featuring swank dinner parties, designer label giveaways and serious pampering. Mischa was a regular at the super-exclusive venue, attending events three nights in a row. At the London party, she mingled with Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox Arquette and Ioan Gruffud.
The Triple Threat
Jennifer Lopez never forgets where she came from. Her resume lists credits from music, movies, fashion and more, and even with a baby on the way she shows no signs of slowing down. Lopez goes from the red carpet in Hollywood to fashion week in New York City and even pays an occasional visit back to the block. Looking like she was straight off a runway, Jennifer Lopez stormed the red carpet at the Conde Nast Fashion Rocks show at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Lopez-looking fierce in a Studio 54-inspired dress by Roberto Cavalli-joined style-setting stars like Jessica Alba, Nicole Richie and Fergie for the annual celebration of rock and style.
The British Bombshell
She may have stepped into the spotlight thanks to an equally beautiful boyfriend, but Sienna Miller has managed to keep our attention thanks to her enviable sense of style and her star turn as Edie Sedgwick in Factory Girl. Valentine-ready in a crimson Moschino capelet, Sienna launched the Godiva One Million Dollar Hearts on Fire sweepstakes at the Century City Mall in L.A. The contest's grand prize is a $1 million diamond-shopping spree and a year's supply of Godiva chocolates.
The Girl Next Door
Perhaps a better way to describe Jessica Simpson is the blonde bombshell next door. She's got enviable curves and a sweet voice, but Simpson has also shown us her smarts, launching a successful line of shoes, bags and other accessories. Though she kept her own body-bikini-ready thanks to regular workouts with trainer Harley Pasternak-covered, Jessica Simpson showed off her new swimwear collection on a pack of models during Mercedes Benz Miami Swim Fashion Week in July.
The Hottest Housewife
Eva Longoria had one heck of a year. From a hit TV show to a fairytale wedding, this housewife is anything but desperate. And she's got a drool-worthy wardrobe to boot. In November, Longoria took her act on the road to Las Vegas, where she gave a special performance at the Hot Tamales Live! comedy show at Caesars Palace. Afterwards she headed to Pure nightclub, where she stormed the DJ booth and whipped the revelers into a frenzy.
