Last night, Elle threw its 17th annual Women in Hollywood Tribute, and besides the amazing celebrity honorees, we're obviously gushing over what everyone was wearing. Diane Kruger, Kerry Washington, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Hilary Swank all stunned in Calvin Klein, while Kate Hudson made an entrance in Prabal Gurung. Obviously, fashion's on the forefront of my mind, but it's always a treat to see that behind the scenes of Hollywood it's all just a bunch of girlfriends chit-chatting. Step inside to glimpse the tribute to our favorite Hollywood women, all the fashion and fun.
Designers like Brian Reyes and Rag & Bone showed off a motley of sock-adorned ensembles on their Fall 2010 runways, and we love the look. Grab a pair — our sweet picks come from Calvin Klein, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Urban Outfitters, and Missoni — and layer it over hosiery, or brave the elements and wear them over bare legs.

>> Zoe Saldana, who was named the Fall 2010 Calvin Klein Underwear face in July and is a longtime devotee of the brand, was recently asked with whom she would most like to co-design a dress or line. Her reply? Not Francisco Costa. "Prabal Gurung has been a very good friend for many years. I am in awe of the way he has carried himself and his designs recently. It would be amazing to collaborate with him." [MyFDB.com]
This week marks the momentous occasion of 30 Rock's first live episode, and aside from the unpredictable, outrageous highlights we're bound to see, there's also a host of guest stars who'll be stopping by. Two of them include Jon Hamm and Matt Damon, a pair of Liz Lemon's love interests. Liz has had a pretty active dating life over the course of the show's five seasons, but somehow she's still ends up single. Here's why: each of her suitors seems to have a hilarious, (and sometimes horrifying) dealbreaker. Watch this video for clips of her past boyfriends — there's a solid lesson each man can teach us for what not to look for in a mate!
In a sea of trying-too-hard and not-trying-hard-enough ensembles, there's something to be said about an outfit that melds laid-back and polished at the same time. This California cool look is what I'm talking about. The baggy sweater ($62, originally $88), lightwash jeans, and tan backpack ($160, originally $200) are chill, while a gray blazer ($51, originally $128), slingback heels, and chunky watch step in to provide suave flair. Click above to get the entire outfit, or just the pieces you dig.

>> While her husband Tom Brady became the highest paid NFL player in history earlier this month, last night, Gisele Bundchen pledged $50,000 of her own money to the Brazil Foundation at a gala for the organization in New York. Not only that, but the custom Calvin Klein dress Francisco Costa made her for the event was sold right off her back to a Brazilian millionaire for another $50,000 — at the thought of someone buying her dress, she apparently quipped: "Who is going to fit THIS?"

Ralph Lauren showed chunky western belts and Navajo-inspired bags that made us swoon, Francisco Costa continued Calvin Klein's sleek, streamlined vibe, while Oscar de la Renta gave a bevvy of jaw-dropping gowns!
