Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon Twinned in Metallic Frocks at the Gotham Awards
There’s no denying the love between IRL besties Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon, who play good friends Celeste and Madeline in the HBO hit series Big Little Lies. Their bond is so strong that they even showed up at the 2017 Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York City on Monday evening, sporting complementing metallic dresses, without planning their twinning moment ahead of the main event. Kidman opted to go full-on bombshell in a silver sequin number with a beaded hemline that harked upon a far more glamorous era, while Witherspoon was more conservative with her sparkle, wearing gold pumps that matched a single gold fringe panel on her LBD. The award-winning actresses weren’t the only stars in attendance who went the Hollywood glam route. Margot Robbie paired her vampy lip and tousled waves with a one-shoulder asymmetric dress, wrapped in emerald sequins. And, Mary J. Blige showed off her toned gams in a high-slit gown with a gold-beaded turtleneck. Scroll below for our favorite looks of the night.
Angelina Jolie Was a Silver Siren at the Hollywood Film Awards
All eyes were on Angelina Jolie at the Hollywood Film Awards. On Sunday night, the Academy Award winner ended her weekend at The Beverly Hilton Hotel for the momentous event, channeling an Old Hollywood movie star in a robe-inspired Jenny Packham gown and minimal jewelry. Red lips and matching crimson nails gave her all-silver look a pop of color, while her voluminous hair only added to the elegant ensemble. Jolie took the stage to accept the Hollywood Foreign Language Film Award for First They Killed My Father and delivered a touching speech in honor of the Cambodian people featured in the documentary. "When the Khmer Rogue took over the country, they targeted and tortured artists," she began. "The vast majority of them were slaughtered for their voices and for their allegiance. To be a Cambodian artist, for many, has not really been very easy. Every single Cambodian crew member was affected by this war. And yet, they stepped forward bravely to tell their stories through art. So for all the regime did to destroy art and artists in Cambodia, they failed. This is for everyone back home in Cambodia. They made this film. This is for them." But Jolie wasn't the only shining star, as it was an important night for some of our favorite celebrities on the big and small screens. Jake Gyllenhaal picked up the Hollywood Actor Award for his role in Stronger and Shailene Woodley honored Kate Winslet for her work in Wonder Wheel. "Her passion, her enthusiasm for filmmaking was contagious," Woodley said of Winstlet. "The crew, all of us, had no choice but to reevaluate all of our narratives and paradigms around filmmaking and realize how lucky we are and how much we adore being in this industry, because of her passion." She added, "This is a woman who shows up every single day with honesty and authenticity, and I personally believe that's why she's such a fantastic, magnificent, compelling actor." Hilariously, Winslet shared a kiss with Allison Janney on stage. And the evening's style didn't disappoint either. Dakota Johnson was suited up in cherry Calvin Klein separates and Winslet slipped on an Elie Saab jumpsuit with a lace bodice. Meanwhile, Carey Mulligan continued the carpet's love for Raf Simons in a red Calvin Klein midi dress.

15 Actresses We Want to Play Princess Diana on Broadway
Broadway is about to get a little more regal, and Princess Diana is to thank. A musical based on the famed princess's life is in the works by Tony-winning writers and directors, which has us asking the ultimate question: Who will play Princess Diana? It's an enormous part that requires both musical and acting chops to pull off successfully. It will take a while before fans will actually be able to see Princess Di embodied on stage, but with the production moving forward and being work shopped this fall, it's only a matter of time before we get a cast list. “We finished the show at the end of last year,” writer Joe DiPietro told the New York Post. “With some shows, the doors open very quickly. They are opening very quickly with this one. People are fascinated by Diana and her legacy.” We'd say fascinated is an understatement. In anticipation of The Story of Diana, an upcoming two-part People special celebrating the life and legacy of the beloved princess, we've compiled our top picks for the role of Princess Diana. Scroll through below to see whom we would cast. The Story of Diana: Part One airs Aug. 9 at 9 p.m. ET and The Story of Diana: Part Two airs Aug. 10 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
