See All the Stars Bringing Their Fashion A-Game to the 2018 SXSW Festival
Awards show season may be over, but your favorite stars are still serving up head-turning looks like there's no tomorrow. The 2018 SXSW Conference and Festival is currently underway in Austin, Texas, and, so far, there has been no shortage of big-name celebrities gracing the red carpet. In case you're not familiar, SXSW (which stands for South by Southwest) is a festival that aims to "celebrate the convergence of the interactive, film, and music industries." Over the course of the 9-day event, there are film premieres, music events, comedy shows, Q&As, keynote speakers, and much more—there's a little bit of everything, which is why people love it. While it's only day 3 of the 2018 festival, we've already been wowed by a selection of amazing fashions. From Jamie Chung's striped mini dress to Emily Blunt's sexy cutouts, these are just a few of our favorite looks so far.  VIDEO: Lauren Lapkus - SXSW Video Diary On Saturday, Olivia Munn certainly didn't shy away from color at the premiere of A Vigilante, wearing a bold turquoise shirt dress with a matching belt. That same day, actress Dakota Fanning turned heads at the Informal & Candid Conversation with Female Leaders in Television, thanks to her bright red wrap dress. However, not all the stars went for bold, colorful looks. Celebrity stylist and fashion designer Rachel Zoe kept things polished in a crisp white pantsuit and black dress shirt, while Leslie Mann attended the Blockers premiere in a casual T-shirt and jeans combo, topped with a long black blazer with sparkly lapels. The festival is just getting started, and we can't wait to see all the great style moments that are yet to come.
Jennifer Garner Took Joe Biden’s Advice to “Go Rogue” During a Charity Speech
While a lot of celebrities have graced red carpets and movie premieres in the last week, Jennifer Garner spent her time in a less expected place—Clay County, Kentucky. The actress traveled there to visit elementary schools, meeting kids to talk about education and outreach, and she had no qualms about revealing exactly what she learned to hundreds of guests at the Save the Children Illumination Gala on Wednesday. Garner ditched a prepared speech—opting to follow guest Joe Biden's advice to "go rogue"—and got pretty candid. "I'm here to tell you that, yes, we have some troubles perhaps in our country and even in our world, but that just means you have to fight harder for your optimism," she said to a packed room at the American Museum of Natural History in N.Y.C. "You have to fight harder and hold onto your faith. And the way that I do that and the way I've done that over the last 10 years is visiting kids and families across this country for Save the Children." Attendee and Save the Children ambassador Dakota Fanning could relate. Fanning told InStyle before the event that she has been on similar trips for Save the Children, and she has seen the program benefit young people. "I got to visit preschools and see these after-school programs that keep the learning going. And I think what I was so moved by was how excited these children were about the programs and how excited they were about learning. I think every child is born with that and then for some, it kind of gets lost along the way because they don't have the tools or they don't have these programs in their schools," she said. Leona Lewis felt similarly. Before belting out a rendition of her hit song "Bleeding Love," and presenting an award to "Bleeding Love" writer and Save the Children honoree Ryan Tedder, Lewis talked to InStyle about Save the Children's impact. "I'm a huge supporter of the charity, I think they do incredible work around the globe in developing countries and in countries that are developed. It's amazing I get to be here and reward [Ryan] because he's been a big part of my journey," she said. "I've collaborated with him a lot on my music and it's just nice to give him something that's not to do with music and sort of support him in that way." Lewis is currently working in the studio on new music and told us that she "expects to have new music next year."

Chanel and Tribeca Teamed Up for a Star-Studded Luncheon
For the third year in a row, Chanel and Tribeca have collaborated to empower a group of up-and-coming female filmmakers with Through Her Lens, a three-day workshop featuring the talent and guidance of Rachel Weisz, Dakota Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen, Mira Nair, Amma Asante, and other prominent members of the entertainment industry.  To mark the start of the program, Chanel and Tribeca hosted the Tribeca Chanel Women's Filmmaker Program Annual Luncheon on Tuesday, where the stars aligned for a charming lunch at N.Y.C.'s Locanda Verde. The guest list was pretty impressive, to say the least, and included , Lola Kirke, Grace Gummer, Zosia Mamet, Jennifer Morrison, Cynthia NixonNatasha Lyonne, and Kyra Sedgwick. Program hosts Jane Rosenthal (Executive Chair of Tribeca Enterprises) and Paula Weinstein (Executive Vice President Tribeca Enterprises) each delivered a powerful speech at the start of the star-studded luncheon, building women up in the wake of the huge wave of stories of sexual misconduct currently rippling through Hollywood—and beyond. “Women must come forward. We must encourage and support each other. We must understand that an assault on one of us is an assault on all of us,” Rosenthal said to an enthusiastic round of applause.
