Harvey Weinstein's pre-Oscars party is one that the stars look forward to every award season, and this year the likes of Kerry Washington, Jennifer Lawrence, Salma Hayek, and many more came out to play the night before the big show. With the exception of a few ladies like Nina Dobrev, most celebs stuck to all black for the festivities. Kerry was fashion-forward in an asymmetrical LBD, Jennifer looked effortless in a tuxedo-inspired getup, while Salma showed off her curves in a formfitting lace dress. Step inside to see who else wore black (and who didn't) to the Weinstein pre-Oscars bash.

The runway at Marni's Fall 2013 runway show was a masterful lesson in dark, streamlined, and utterly sophisticated wares from Consuelo Castiglioni. "It's austere but with a romanticism, it's melancholic, severe," said the designer. While we're used to seeing a more whimsical spike in Castiglioni's hand, her latest collection induced a sense of pure refinement, showcasing a magnificent array of outerwear in the way of heavy, oversize wool coats, structured bomber jackets, and bonded leather jackets. For daywear, Castiglioni paired strapless peplum tops over a range of baggy trousers, cropped biker jackets with peekaboo knife-pleat skirts, and miniskirts with structured bonded tops. And every so often, there was a pop of print via graphic landscape and floral patterns. Fur added an opulent touch across the board; short and long haired textures were used on skirts, capes, extralong stoles, and collars, injecting pure decadence into every single look. Marni's accessories always draw a big crowd, and this season's latest highlighted a range of flat riding boots (and even a few furry renditions), double-strap sandals, gorgeous leather satchels, and furry mittens.

Miranda Kerr has taken a liking — a strong one, at that — to Peter Pilotto's bold prints. The model first wore a blue print peplum dress from the designer's Spring 2012 collection with Nicholas Kirkwood sandals in late 2011. Earlier this month, Miranda chose a flirty dress from the Resort 2013 line for her unveiling as the Kids Helpline ambassador. And just this week, at the H&M Global Green pre-Oscars party in LA, she went with another Pilotto dress, this time a colorful cutout number from the Spring 2013 collection, which she completed with black pumps and a black clutch. It's a Miranda Kerr-meets-Peter Pilotto trifecta, and we want to know which look you like best.

Zoe Saldana stood out in a boldly striped Dolce & Gabbana number at the 2013 Independent Spirit Awards this afternoon. While the green and white stripes may be the outfit's most eye-catching detail, it's worth taking note of the dress's subtle rose embroidery, too. The brunette beauty did right by styling the look with a minimalist's approach, only adding on a few dainty rose-themed accessories. To finish, she kept her hair down and wavy, then rounded it all out with a pair of crisp white (and green-lined) pointy-toe pumps by Casadei. What's the verdict?
Nina Dobrev went playful — and gilded — on the 2013 Independent Spirit Awards pink carpet, courtesy of an embellished white Michael Kors shorts set. The Vampire Diaries star skipped the cocktail-dress approach in favor of a leg-baring look, but kept the glamour fully intact via the top's sparkly texture and a shiny gold Michael Kors belt. As for everything else? Dobrev kept it simple. Namely, she polished off her outfit with a beachy ponytail, one lone H.Stern ring, and matching gold strappy Jimmy Choo sandals. Does she get your vote?
