The Art of the Party: How Stars Celebrated This Week's Best Fêtes

Where’s Ben Stiller when you need him? The Night at the Museum star was no where to be found across a series of late-night parties and galas that popped inside New York City’s most treasured institutions of art, like the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Guggenheim. Fashion’s rat pack , however, stepped out in droves all week long. Karlie Kloss played co-host at the Whitney’s annual Art Party on Tuesday, when she was joined by—and wore a dress from—designer and fellow co-host Brandon Maxwell. For Kloss, the week didn’t spare any time for a Netflix-and-chill session. She also dazzled in a gilded, deep-V Michael Kors dress at L’Oréal Paris’s Women of Worth celebration in N.Y.C. alongside Eva Longoria and Blake Lively, and later turned to a LBD (a Dior version, nonetheless) at the Guggenheim’s International Gala 2016. Poppy Delevingne and her stylish squad packed into New York's Museum of Modern Art on Tuesday for its Chanel-hosted Film Benefit, where the model honored Tom Hanks, who was on hand with wife Rita WilsonChristy Turlington Burns, Alexa Chung, and Emma Watson were just a few talented stars that cut quite the classic figure in  Chanel that evening.

Star Studded: Best Parties This Week

If there's one lesson Gigi Hadid taught us this week, it's that our favorite A-listers clearly all abide by a work hard, play hard philosophy. That was evident Tuesday night in New York City, where the 21-year-old model posed for picture after picture after picture at the launch party for Tommy Hilfiger's just-released book, American Dreamer ($22; amazon.com). Hadid, the designer's most recent collaborator, caught up with fellow camera-ready beauty Karolina Kurkova and notables like Naomi Campbell. But was this the only event to catch our eye this week? Over in Tinseltown on Saturday, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art celebrated its sixth annual Art+Film Gala with household names like Gwyneth Paltrow, Salma Hayek, and Brie Larson, all of whom turned to designer Alessandro Michele for a dreamy Gucci frock that landed each of them on several best dressed lists. Meanwhile, Sarah Jessica Parker channeled her inner Carrie Bradshaw and greeted girlfriends like Lily Collins at the Museum of the Moving Image's salute to Warren Beatty, where they delivered their own chic interpretation of black-tie dressing. Don’t think they were the only ones to hit the town, though. Suki Waterhouse, Karlie Kloss, and Felicity Jones also made waves behind the velvet rope at other star-studded affairs from coast to coast.

Rebecca Minkoff Designs a Bottle of Bubbly and Tells Us the Best Way to Drink It

Rebecca Minkoff is known for her edgy-yet-feminine clothing and accessories line that is beloved by fashionistas of all ages, but her latest project takes her from the runway to the bar cart. This holiday season, she is adding bottle designer to her resume with the launch of her freshly designed Chandon sparkling wines hitting shelves now. Peppered with illustrated metallic studs, the two bottles (one black and one white) are reflective of the cool-girl aesthetic of Minkoff’s namesake brand. “I wanted to make sure I captured the essence of both my brand and Chandon by doing something chic and subtle while still making it distinct,” says Minkoff. “Studs are a signature of ours and seen on a lot of our ready-to-wear and accessories, and I wanted to add them to the bottles in a clever way.” Of course, if you follow the social media-savvy designer at all, you’ll know that she is also somewhat of an entertaining guru—have you seen the ridiculously adorable photos of her baby shower?—but this home cook chooses casual over fussy when it comes to drinking bubbles at home. “I love a stemless flute—still special, but a little more fun and casual,” says Minkoff. And even though she loves cooking and filling her dining room with an army of friends on a regular basis, she definitely appreciates a low-key evening. “My favorite way to enjoy [sparkling wine] is to sip it on the couch with my husband.” Scroll down to see the Chandon bottles and some unique stemless glassware that you can "salut" to, à la Minkoff.

See 8 Fashion Designers in Their Signature Uniforms

We've waxed on about the power of uniform dressing: Steve Jobs was a fan, as is Hillary Clinton. There is something undeniable about knowing what works for you and wearing said outfit (or variation of said outfit) with aplomb. Nobody knows this better than fashion designers, whose job it is to make everyone look their best at all times. Naturally, women like Diane von Furstenberg, Carolina Herrera, and Victoria Beckham practice what they preach because they, too, sport some iteration of their own uniform. Von Furstenberg, for her part, prefers a printed tunic dress, which she calls a "petite valise," while Beckham loves herself some menswear-inspired suiting. Ahead, eight fashion designers in their signature uniforms. RELATED: Watch Us Demo 3 Ways to Style a White Shirt
