And what better occasion to dress to the nines than in honor of some of the world's most influential people? With Biel in black, head-to-toe Tom Ford, Munn in bright canary-yellow Michael Kors, and Claire Danes in a more exotic Lanvin look, the night played host to a spectrum of black-tie ensembles. Lena Dunham wore a shimmery number from Saint Laurent's much-discussed Saint Laurent Fall '13 collection and Christina Aguilera went the siren route in formfitting Victoria Beckham.

Kate Hudson wore Ann Taylor and brought Matthew Bellamy with her to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation's annual Hot Pink Party in NYC last night. The couple was joined at the charity bash by a Blumarine-wearing Elizabeth Hurley and Elton John, as well as fashion designers Michael Kors, Vera Wang, and Donna Karan. Kate was doing more than just walking the pink carpet; she also presented an award to Kay Krill, the CEO of ANN Inc., the parent company for Ann Taylor, where Kate serves as a brand ambassador.
Kate has been keeping busy in the Big Apple. She is currently promoting her new film, The Reluctant Fundamentalist, which will screen at the Tribeca Film Festival next week.

Kerry Washington stepped out at the MTV Movie Awards in a neon orange-and-black Michael Kors gown, and thanks to its bold hues, she was hard to miss (in the best sense possible). Her high-low skirt-turned-dramatic dress train played the perfect counterpart to the black long-sleeved minidress peeking through; and to top it all off, the daring silhouette gave way to one seriously leggy look. Then, the Django Unchained starlet finished with a yellow ostrich-textured clutch and black buckle-embellished Roger Vivier pumps. Are you a fan?

Michael Kors ruled the runway last year as the most-searched online brand, and in 2013 he is planning to reign in the beauty aisle by adding color cosmetics to his fashion empire. The line is divided into three distinct collections: sexy, sporty, and glam. Each segment will offer a customized fragrance, lipstick, lip gloss, and two nail polishes. "I think those three things — sexy, sporty and glam — have always been the DNA of Michael Kors, and in a strange way, the Michael Kors woman really is all three of those things — it's just that she feels more strongly about one of them at certain given times. So I asked myself, how can we express that both with color and with fragrance?" Kors told WWD.
The brand's new beauty lineup will also include body care and sun items like bronzer, bath beads, self-tanner, and dry oil. "At the end of the day, I try to take a woman and make it easy for her in general," he said. "I wanted to do the essentials — the things you absolutely have to have to represent that mood. Not because someone told you 'Oh, you have to have it.'" Launching in August, the products will be available at Macy's and Michael Kors stores nationwide.

Watch on for our must haves! On Allie: Zara blazer and top. On Marisa Tom: BCBG Max Azria top and blazer, Hysteric Co. rings.
