Amanda Seyfried didn't hold back on the glamour factor this evening as she made her entrance in a navy Zac Posen gown. The formfitting mermaid silhouette showed off her curves, while a ruffled hemline added a dramatic factor to her look. Diamond studs and a pendant necklace by Lorraine Schwartz injected just the right amount of sparkle, while gorgeous long waves polished off her standout ensemble for the evening.

Girls' creator/star extraordinaire — and (spoiler alert!) Golden Globe winner — Lena Dunham wore her second Zac Posen creation in as many days, and we're loving the polished look of her off-the-shoulder dark plum gown. The structural shape — courtesy of sculpted tailoring details at the bodice and skirt — gave Lena's whole red-carpet look an Old Hollywood feel. Coupled with her edgier pixie cut, darkly lined eyes, and a pair of stud earrings, the actress made sure to inject her signature low-key approach into styling on the high-glam gown.

Naomi Watts dazzled in a body-hugging Zac Posen gown, and it just so happened to be in this season's hottest color: oxblood. She may have stayed covered up in long sleeves, but the look was not without some subtle sex appeal, thanks to a few strategically placed cutouts (just look at that dramatic back!). Her gown, loosely flared at the knee, amped up the drama with a train of regal proportions. Her pulled-back hair revealed her sparkling accessories — diamond and ruby earrings — which were matched by an equally shiny ruby ring and an oxblood-hued box clutch to finish off her look with some added seasonal gloss. What do you think of Watts's Zac Posen look?

Designer shake-ups, editor switcheroos, and more peplums than you could shake a hip at: 2012 had it all. Herein, we break down the biggest fashion stories of the year, alphabet style. Click through to relive it all — the gossip, glory, triumphs, scandals, and everything in between — in our most extensive year-end recap yet.
Here's your first 2013 (style) shake-up: Zac Posen will replace Michael Kors as a judge on the new season of Project Runway, which airs Jan. 24. The reason for the change? Scheduling conflicts on Kors's part. Posen, who's no stranger to the panel (he's appeared on the show as a guest judge in the past), tweeted earlier, "So excited to be the new judge on @ProjectRunway Season 11!" And, while the show's host and executive producer, Heidi Klum shares Posen's excitement — she took to Twitter to welcome him — she also tweeted, "I will miss you this season my brother @Michael Kors I love you!" This won't be the last you'll be seeing of Kors, though. He'll take up his judging post for the show's always epic season finale. Now that you've had a few seconds to process the news, we want to know your thoughts: are you excited to have a fresh face on the panel lineup? Or, are you sad that Michael Kors won't be a permanent Project Runway fixture anymore?
If 2013 wasn't going to be a big enough year for Zac Posen, it just got bigger.
Posen will replace Michael Kors, who will sit out this season due to scheduling conflicts. But Kors isn't leaving the show altogether: he'll rejoin the judges' panel as a guest during the season finale. Heidi Klum, the show's executive producer, tweeted "I will miss you this season my brother @MichaelKors I love you!" before welcoming Posen to the team.
Posen, who has been a guest judge on the show in the past, called the job "an amazing opportunity. I hope I'm here to give a new perspective to the designers."
The new season of Project Runway debuts on Jan. 24, but it won't be the only place Posen will appear on TV next year. His Spring 2013 runway show was filmed for an episode of the new modeling reality series The Face.

The standout gowns at last night's The Impossible premiere in LA could be summed up in three words: Old Hollywood glamour. Naomi Watts channeled a modern-day Veronica Lake in a purple petal-printed Zac Posen bias-cut gown, which, in true bombshell form, hugged every curve to perfection. Her retro up-do, costume-inspired drop earrings, and daring open-back cutout (believe us on this one) put the final touches on her elegantly styled old-school ensemble. As for her chic challenger? Petra Nemcova stepped out in a coral-hued strapless Notte by Marchesa number that evoked more of a Rita Hayworth kind of sex appeal than Naomi's less-is-more approach. To complete her look, she wore diamond earrings and crystal-encrusted sandals and carried a bronze satin clutch. With two stunning gowns at the helm and a similar brand of siren glamour at play, it's time for you to decide who gets the best-dressed honors.
On Thursday, Tesoro — a founding partner of HL Group — filed a suit against Jalouse magazine editor Jennifer Eymere, Eymere's mother Marie-José Susskind-Jalou, president of Jalou Publishing, and Eymere's sister Vanessa Bellugeon of L'Officiel magazine. The suit charges all three with assault and slander, and Tesoro's lawyers are asking the court for unspecified damages. Tesoro had previously filed a lawsuit that asked for $1 million in damages and charged the three with "assault, battery, emotional distress, slander and/or libel."
The incident that brought the lawsuit started when the New York Fire Department took issue with the setup for Posen's Spring 2013 show and removed about 60 seats from the venue, a balcony at Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall. Tesoro's lawsuit says that when she attempted to find different seats for Susskind-Jalou and her daughters, the trio "refused to listen to reason and continued to berate" her. Eventually, Eymere slapped Tesoro on the face.
Eymere told WWD back in September that she didn't like the way her mother was being treated and warned the publicist a smack was coming her way. "It was a small slap. It was not strong. I didn't hurt her, it was just to humiliate her," she said. "She humiliated my mom, and I humiliated her in front of her crew. Voilà. I just said at the end, 'Now you know you don't f**k with French people.'"
But Tesoro's lawyers say that doesn't justify the slap. "Such statements falsely indicated that Tesoro deserved to be slapped because she verbally 'humiliated' Susskind-Jalou, when the exact opposite is true," the court papers said.

They may not have been in the same room, or even at the same event, but at their respectively glamorous NYC parties, both Crystal Renn and Hilary Rhoda opted for dresses by the same designer, friend Zac Posen. In fact, Hilary Rhoda not only wore his gown, but took Zac as her date to Harry Winston's dinner. Meanwhile, Crystal Renn, Zac's longtime friend and muse, opted for a brilliant fuchsia, bustier-style gown, offset with turquoise Lorraine Schwartz jewels for an evening out at the Angel Ball. Hilary kept it a tad more understated, choosing a sleek Fall-appropriate burgundy strapless and finishing with a side-swept bun. If you ask us, both supermodels did Zac Posen proud — but we're turning it over to you: who's the winner of this supermodel showdown?
Bergdorf Goodman celebrated its 111th anniversary on Thursday evening with a party at the iconic Plaza Hotel. Fashion's finest were in full attendance— designers like Zac Posen, Jason Wu, and Derek Lam came out to fete the luxe retailer, as did supermodels Coco Rocha and Karolína Kurková. We found out their biggest fashion splurges, and Coco even gave us a little insight on how to strut with confidence. That, plus more from Bergdorf Goodman's enviably chic birthday party, in today's Fab Flash. On Allison McNamara: Kendra Scott earrings, BCBGeneration top.
