If we had to conjure up a guest list for the most fashionable dinner, then last night's Chanel pre-Oscars affair would be it. With best actress nominee Jessica Chastain along with Kate Bosworth and January Jones leading the Chanel-clad attendee pack, there was no shortage of polished evening looks to pore over. Of course, it was as much about who wore the label's famous tweed wares (Chloë Moretz and Lily Collins included), as it was about honing in on the equally iconic quilted bags, cap-toe pumps, costume pearls, and camellia-themed accents. Click on for an all-angles look at who wore what — down to the very last detail — at Chanel's pre-Oscars dinner.
The Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2013 collection struck a mod-meets-minimalist chord, pairing shiny patent double-breasted peacoats with turtleneck dresses, and cropped jackets with A-line skirts. Consider it a turn to retro styling juxtaposed against pared-down silhouettes. To fully harness this vibe, Creative Director Massimiliano Giornetti sent out sleek pieces — mostly in navy blues, blacks, and slate grays — only letting the crispest shade of white punctuate the dark lineup. While there were quite a few "deconstructed" minidresses to (once again) redefine the standard LBD, it was the expertly tailored (and very luxurious) outerwear that held our attention. As for the label's iconic leather goods? There were plenty: all of them, cooler than the one before. Between the croc-printed bags and the knee-high cutout pointy-toe boots — which, from the back, provided all the lace-up sex appeal in one parting glance — Ferragamo Fall '13 proved jam-packed with accessories and clothing worth coveting. See it all here.

The 2013 Independent Spirit Awards rolled out the red — make that pink — carpet to welcome a cool crew of starlets, including Kerry Washington, Zoe Saldana, and Salma Hayek, dressed for the LA sunshine (palm trees and beach background included) and an afternoon's worth of honors for the industry's best indie film projects. Among this year's nominees? Silver Linings Playbook's Jennifer Lawrence, who stunned in Lanvin, was up for best actress, and a Stella McCartney-clad Rashida Jones was being recognized for her first screenplay, Celeste and Jesse Forever. To find an up-to-date breakdown of who wore what to the Spirit Awards, just keep clicking.
Despite troubling revelations regarding Vittorio Missoni's disappearance, Missoni's Fall 2013 runway show went on — and took a surprising turn towards minimalism. In place of the loud knits we're used to seeing, Angela Missoni utilized a simple, refreshing color palette and a more effortless feel for Fall with a mix of solids and patterns. Oversize robe coats were worn haphazardly over the shoulders and paired with print trousers, and blazers, while dresses received a modern touch via sheer cutout details. There were also a few pairs of irresistibly cool slouchy leather pants dipped in cobalt and lime green hues. The fashion house's iconic knitwear was still evident throughout the collection, but this time toned down in fine shimmery metallic finishes and textural sweater coats. See Missoni's full collection now.
Once again, Dolce and Gabbana's Fall 2013 collection was one of pure over-the-top extravagance, celebrating the brand's rich Italian history. With models decked out in golden crowns, oversize chandelier earrings, and rosary beads, designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana churned out a collection filled with ornate details. Such was the case with the intricate Monreale Cathedral church mosaics they featured — the duo enlisted the help of local artisans and experts to re-create the complex artwork — on a wide array of shimmery dresses and filigree sculpted shoes and embroidered bags. The decadence continued with beaded shift dresses featuring flared flute sleeves and a look that highlighted a gold stone-embellished bustier dedicated to Saint Agatha. However, it wasn't all about the glitz and glamour; Dolce and Gabbana provided pared-downed elegance for the everyday lady via chic tweed skirtsuits and tailored coats. The closer? A stampede of models decked out in a captivating lineup of bejeweled red lace dresses simply took our breath away. See the full collection in all its glory now.

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.
