Star-Studded: The Best Parties This Week

Kim Kardashian recently wore a tailored blazer for a dinner and now Gwyneth Paltrow is the latest to take on the borrowed-from-the-boys trend. The entrepreneur and actress celebrated La Perla's pre-fall 2018 collection and dressed in an impeccable getup that consisted of a black, bra-free jacket with a wrap-around black leather belt and wife-leg, floor-grazing pants. Elegant, indeed. Later, she also celebrated the Goop Gift pop-up in New York City, where she once again proved that you can't go wrong in black. Nicole Kidman also made several appearances this week, first at the Gotham Independent Film Awards where she caught up with Big Little Lies co-star Reese Witherspoon, and later at a gala honoring Louis Vuitton and its creative director, Nicolas Ghesquière. The squad of LV superstars were, of course, on hand. Elsewhere, Zosia Mamet reminded us that she's a certified fashion girl at a dinner hosted by Saks Fifth Avenue where it was all about millennial designer Maggie Marilyn.

Louis Vuitton’s many superstar muses headed toward the Hudson on Thursday evening for a party celebrating the launch of the designer’s Volez, Voguez, Voyagez exhibition in N.Y.C. The fête, housed at the New York Stock Exchange Building, welcomed a barrage of famous faces from all walks of life—from Justin Theroux to Alicia Vikander (and her giant diamond engagement bling), and Jaden Smith to Michelle Williams. Oh, and we can’t forget the newly bald Alexander Skarsgård (more on that, here). Louis Vuitton’s traveling Volez, Voguez, Voyagez exhibit chronicles the brand’s 163-year history and evolution. The N.Y.C. leg of the exhibit, which officially opens today, will remain at the NYSE building until Jan. 7, 2018. Admission is free for all visitors.

Ruth Negga's Most Spectacular Looks Ever

If 2016 had a highlight reel (however brief), Ruth Negga would surely be featured large. The Loving actress made a name for herself as one of the year’s most vibrant breakout stars, both onscreen and on the red carpet, and it’s easy to see why. The Ethiopian-born beauty embodies the greatest virtues of modern-day Hollywood: unmistakable talent, unique style, and a humble air that makes her seem oh-so approachable. When it comes to red carpet fashion, Negga has more going for her than a wicked-chic stylist and a mob of luxury designers begging to dress her (though we’re sure those do come with the territory)—in addition to all that, the actress presents herself with such grace and composure everywhere she goes, it’s no wonder that she’s 2016’s reigning It-girl. Did we mention that she’s humble? At InStyle’s 2017 Golden Globes after-party, Negga gushed to reporters about her custom-made Louis Vuitton gown. “When an artist, a creator, a genius custom-makes something for you, it’s extraordinary,” Negga shared, “It feels like it’s the nicest thing I’ve ever put on my skin. It’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.” Well said! Hey, Ruth, let’s be friends—also, can we raid your closet? Here are the actress’s best looks to date. We’re certain this is just the beginning of Negga’s show-stopping red carpet career.

See the Spectacular Looks and Jewels from Tiffany & Co.'s Blue Book Collection Gala

Has anyone  truly ever looked like a million bucks? Ask Ruth Negga, who hit the gray carpet in a fantastically ornate leopard-print Gucci dress that she paired with—get this—$2.2 million-worth of Tiffany & Co. diamonds. The occasion? The 2017 unveiling of the brand's Blue Book Collection, hosted by Chairman Michael Kowalski inside St. Ann's Warehouse in Brooklyn. Negga's Gucci number reminded us of her fearlessness when it comes to fashion, but those jewels though! The diamond rings were indeed gorgeous, however, you have to take a closer look at the $1.1 million choker she wore. It was the perfect cherry on top of her Best Dressed-worthy outfit. Citing stylist Karla Welch as her secret weapon, Negga told us all about her love for experimenting with clothing.  "If people don't like it, well, that's their problem. I don't wear clothes because I want to piss someone off or anything, I wear it because I think it's beautiful," she told InStyle. "Everyone has the right to look beautiful, whatever body shape or however you look. It's very important that we're all involved, because it is an art form. I firmly believe that." We also spotted the artful jewels on Haley Bennett, who paired her Cinderella-like J. Mendel gown with $700,000 in Tiffany diamonds. Don't think she's used to it, though. "I've never opened my own Tiffany Blue box. My mother had a few pieces and I always looked up to her. When she was wearing them, I observed that she was more confident," she told us. "Hopefully she'll pass those pieces down to me. That would be special." For Reese Witherspoon, the evening conjured memories of that final Big Little Lies episode in which her character, Madeline, dresses up as Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's for a party. "I think it's extraordinarily chic and I love that she has on big eyelashes at 6 a.m., a full face of makeup at 6 o'clock in the morning," she told us, explaining how much she loves that iconic sleep mask with the white shirtdress.  Jennifer Hudson's sexy and yellow ruffled DSquared2 piece caused a commotion on the carpet ("Yes Jennifer! More Jennifer! This way Jennifer!" photographers screamed), while Claire Danes kept it classic in black velvet Monse, which, naturally, required a $525,000 Tiffany necklace. Danes later told us all about the jewel that's near and dear to her heart. "My husband gave me a watch that's kind of chunky," she told us. "I lost it for a while and it reappeared. Jewelry does that. It goes away and then it comes back. It has its own power and I've been enjoying its reemergence."
