There were many standout accessories that celebrities showed off this year — wide-brim fedoras, top designer handbags, cat-eye sunglasses — but the one that swept the top slot was the sneaker. Everyone from Marion Cotillard to Gisele Bundchen to Irina Shayk to many more famous faces wore their favorite sporty sneakers from the likes of Isabel Marant and Ash with everything from jeans to leather pants to dresses to skirts. We have yet to see if the trend will live on in 2013, but in the meantime, take a look back at all the celebs that sported sneakers in 2012.
Stars came out for the gala opening night of The Book of Mormon in LA yesterday. Busy Philipps chose a floral dress for the special occasion while Zoe Saldana, fresh off promoting The Words, wore black Stella McCartney. Christina Hendricks was back on the West Coast after a visit to Toronto while Kellan Lutz popped up following multiple NY Fashion Week appearances. Viola Davis stood out in a purple look as she hit the red carpet alongside Malin Akerman, Shailene Woodley, Neil Patrick Harris, and Julie Bowen. Joy Bryant, whose Parenthood premiered on Tuesday, smiled big, as did Lisa Kudrow, Perrey Reeves, and Alicia Silverstone. The Broadway play is settling in Hollywood until the end of November, when it then moves on to a five-week engagement in San Francisco.
It was a star-studded red carpet at last night's premiere of Hit and Run at Regal Cinemas in downtown LA. Dax Shepard, who wrote and directed the film, arrived in style with his leading lady, and fiancée, Kristen Bell, by his side. Kristen rocked a black satin jumpsuit, while Bradley Cooper sported a sexy leather jacket. The stars all took time to sign autographs for fans who were lining the streets before joining castmates Jason Bateman, Michael Rosenbaum, Tom Arnold, Ryan Hansen, and Joy Bryant for group photos. It looked like they had a great time filming since their red carpet reunion was filled with plenty of laughter. We asked the stars how Dax stacked up as a director and Ryan jokingly rated him an 8.5, saying, "He's got some work to do," while Bradley simply said, "He's awesome; he's incredible." Bradley also mentioned he'd love to try his hand at directing soon, too.

Joy Bryant chatted on her phone and sipped on a cocktail in her bikini in Miami yesterday. She's staying at the Eden Roc Renaissance Hotel for the opening of Elle magazine's first spa, which will apparently offer editorially inspired treatments, products, and apparel. Joy has time to enjoy all that the new destination has to offer now that she's on a break from Parenthood. The family drama will be back for a third season, though, along with another NBC series, Community. One of the stars of the funny show, Gillian Jacobs, also happens to be in FL soaking up the sun in a two-piece as is Friday Night Lights actress Aimee Teegarden.
