Tom Cruise's latest leading lady, Ukrainian actress Olga Kurylenko, lights up the big screen in Oblivion. But the former Bond girl's high-fashion choices have also been drawing major attention on red carpets worldwide. At the most recent Oblivion premiere in Japan, Kurylenko stepped out in a gorgeous striped Dior ball gown, but she's treated us to a variety of glamorous looks on every stop of her promo tour. For the Hollywood premiere, she took the plunge in a sexier Burberry number; in Taiwan, she gave us high fashion in a Balmain minidress with gold Jimmy Choo sandals — for more from Oblivion's leading lady, just keep clicking.
Tom Cruise reunited with his costar Olga Kurylenko to premiere their latest film, Oblivion, in Tokyo today. They were joined by their director, Joseph Kosinski, for their Asian press tour, which will also include a premiere in China. Yesterday, Olga donned a Victoria Beckham dress to meet up with Tom at the film's press conference at the Ritz-Carlton in the Japanese capital. She has been happily tweeting about her time in the land of the rising sun, saying, "Just finished presenting the Oblivion premiere in Tokyo. So good to be back in Japan. I love spending time here!" Tom, for his part, has been keeping busy over the past few days despite his Tokyo press tour. On Monday, he announced that Mission: Impossible 5 has been confirmed, and he celebrated the release of Jack Reacher on DVD yesterday. However, Tom and Olga did miss out on a bit of fun earlier this week when they skipped the 2013 Met Gala so they could stick to their press duties abroad.
There's lots of big news in this week's casting update, including the latest tidbit that Justin Timberlake has signed on to play '70s record executive Neil Bogart in a biopic. Meanwhile, Michael Fassbender and Natalie Portman are taking on Shakespearean roles, and small screen star Nina Dobrev will take a big screen role in a comedy. James Franco has found his next directorial project, and Colin Firth is in talks for not one, but two upcoming parts. Click through to find out where your favorite stars are headed next!
I've been excited to see Oblivion since the trailer came out, but it isn't the mind-bending sci-fi film I was hoping for. Though it has a promising premise — a man on a postapocalyptic Earth is troubled by vivid memories of a world he supposedly wasn't alive to witness — it throws lackluster wrenches into the plot and settles for a ho-hum resolution. Jack (Tom Cruise) is one half of a maintenance team that repairs resource-sucking drones on what's left of Earth. He and partner Victoria (Andrea Riseborough) only have a few weeks left until they get to go back home to the moon outside of Saturn where humans are now residing, but mysterious happenings disrupt their plans.
Cruise and Riseborough have a prickly chemistry that's interesting to watch, which is helpful since a large portion of the film just stars the two of them. Cruise brings his usual charm to Jack; even on a desolate landscape with only one person in the world to win over, he still grins, cracks jokes, and delivers silly lines with determination. His signature smile and wit can only go so far, though, and it's not enough to keep this disappointing film afloat. To find out what else I thought of Oblivion, just read more.
Olga Kurylenko stars in Friday's big-budget sci-fi movie Oblivion alongside Tom Cruise. Besides starring as Tom's leading lady, Olga also got to play Ben Affleck's love interest in her Terrence Malick film, To the Wonder, which came out earlier this month. It has been a busy time for Olga, who largely became known to US audiences in 2008's Bond film Quantum of Solace. She filled us in on the busy time in her life at a press day in NYC yesterday, opening up about working with Tom and Ben, the highlights of her press tour for Oblivion, and more — click through to read highlights from Olga.
Olga Kurylenko made a strong case for high slits at her latest red carpet appearance, and needless to say, she has us convinced that we need one, too. The stylish actress attended the Moves Magazine party in NYC decked out in a svelte green dress by Altuzarra paired with matching buckle boots. While the overall length and fit of her dress are pretty modest, the sleek side slit detail adds just the right amount of party appeal. We also love the idea of wearing this look to the office (dress code permitting) styled with a sleek blazer and pumps, and if you're looking for less of a commitment, opt for a side-slit skirt and pair it with a semisheer blouse or silk tank for your next cocktail meetup.

Video: The Biggest Moments From Tom Cruise’s Oblivion Premiere. Plus, What to Expect From Game of Thrones!
In today’s main story from Los Angeles, Tom Cruise and the stars from Oblivion spoke to us on the red carpet. Tom told us what he would do if it was his last day on Earth, and Tom’s costar, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, told us what to expect on Game of Thrones!
Mercury is rising, which means your hair will too . . . off your shoulders, that is. So why not take some inspiration from Olga Kurylenko and her effortlessly styled bun? The low-slung style was accented with delicate braids on the sides, which she wore to the Los Angeles premiere of her latest film Oblivion.
Olga's style is surprisingly easy to pull off. After rough-drying your hair, add a texturizing product like L'Oréal Professionnel True Grip ($17, LPSalons.com) so your hair is easier to work with. Next, section off two one-inch sections of hair right above each ear. Pull the rest of your hair into a low bun and secure with pins. Next, braid the two sections above your ears and wrap the ends around the bun. Loosely curl any pieces that frame your face and finish with a mist of hair spray.
