Lots of lovely ladies converged in Beverly Hills this afternoon for the Essence Black Women in Hollywood Luncheon, and three of our fashionable favorites opted for white-hot looks at the event. Honoree Paula Patton walked the carpet in a sultry, body-conscious cap-sleeve Marchesa dress with metallic silver pumps and a sexy red pout. Emma Stone looked sweet in a full-skirted, white embroidered frock from Elie Saab's Spring 2012 Haute Couture collection, finishing the look with nude Brian Atwood pumps and a Ferragamo clutch, while Kerry Washington upped the ante on her Cushnie et Ochs peplum skirt suit by pairing it with bright red Brian Atwood heels and a colorful magazine clutch. Each of the actresses surely knows how to put a sexy spin on the little white dress — but whose look is most fab?
The fun continued inside Siren Studios in LA last night for the stars who attended the Vanity Fair and Juicy Couture event cohosted by Shailene Woodley, benefiting her All It Takes charity. Jessica Chastain made the rounds in her daring Alexander McQueen ensemble, chatting with friends like Marcia Gay Harden and Kelly Lynch. Jessica's on the current cover of Vanity Fair, along with fellow attendees like Shailene and Paula Patton. Paula made the rounds and said hello to pals like Ali Larter and Dania Ramirez. The pre-Oscars event was one of the many taking place in and around Hollywood in the run-up to Sunday's ceremony. Jessica is in the running for her first-ever statue — do you think she'll win best supporting actress for The Help?

Paula Patton may just be the sunniest lady at the Golden Globes. The actress is wearing a gorgeous, bright yellow strapless Monique Lhuillier gown with a sleek fishtail hem, and she finished the look with Kwiat jewelry and a Judith Leiber clutch. We love Paula's swept back, half up-half down hairstyle (it shows off her awesome earrings), as well as her pretty, polished makeup. Her dark manicure also pairs perfectly with the brightness of the dress. What do you think of Paula's look?

Michelle Williams helped the Weinstein Company get a head start on the Golden Globes celebration last night. Harvey Weinstein's enterprise hosted a bash at the Chateau Marmont that brought out the My Week With Marilyn star and her best friend, Busy Philipps. Busy was still in the bright blue Carven dress she wore to the 2012 People's Choice Awards, where she told us about her plans to be Michelle's date to the Golden Globes on Sunday! The girls went together last year as well, when Michelle was nominated, but lost, for Blue Valentine. Busy joked that if Michelle doesn't win this year, perhaps she should consider another date for future award shows!
A mustache-sporting Bradley Cooper also made the rounds at Harvey's party after stopping by Liam Neeson's premiere of The Grey. He said hello to friends at the Chateau like Paula Patton, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Morrison, Lindsay Lohan, and Downton Abbey's Elizabeth McGovern. We may see many of the same faces this evening on the red carpet at the Critics' Choice Awards — stay tuned later for our live coverage, which starts at 3 p.m. PT / 6 p.m. ET!
Tom Cruise had wife Katie Holmes by his side last night for the afterparty following his Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol premiere in NYC. We caught a minute with Tom on the red carpet — stay tuned for that later today on PopSugar Rush! — and he spoke about what he loves to do most with his youngest child, Suri. He told us, "Really, everything with her is amazing. She's so much fun to be with. So funny and sweet. Lovely." Additionally, Tom spoke of his love for Katie Holmes. He said, "Every day I fall more in love with her. It's been quite an amazing five years because of her. She's an incredible woman. She's everything to me."
Along with his costars Paula Patton, Simon Pegg, and Jeremy Renner, Tom celebrated the over-the-top screening at The Museum of Modern Art. Tom and Katie also welcomed their pal Queen Latifah to the bash. Queen Latifah starred with Katie in 2008's Mad Money and also shared the screen with Paula in 2010's Just Wright! Paula cuddled up to husband Robin Thicke, who brought his dad, Alan, to the premiere. Simon, meanwhile, said hello to his former Paul buddies Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader. Once the fun wrapped up at The MOMA, Tom and Katie headed out for dinner at The Meatball Shop in the West Village.
Tom Cruise hit the red carpet for the NYC premiere of Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol in a sexy dark suit. He's been traveling around the world with costar Paula Patton to promote the action film, and now the duo are showing off their exciting project in the Big Apple. Tom had wife Katie Holmes by his side this evening, though, and she looked gorgeous in a sheer short dress.
Tom's MI4 comes out in just a few days, but his release isn't the only big news for the Holmes-Cruise family. Katie celebrated her 33rd birthday over the weekend and spent the day with Tom and their daughter Suri. She was back out in the city for brunch with a friend at Bubby's earlier today while Tom prepped for an appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman.
Paula Patton is stunning no matter what she's wearing, but at yesterday's Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol premiere in London, she had an extra sparkle in her eye — literally. The actress looked festive as can be wearing glittery blue shadow that perfectly enhanced her brown eyes. To re-create the look, waterline the entire eyes with a waterproof eyeliner in black. Then, create the illusion of thicker lashes by applying a black pencil liner to the upper lash lines, lightly diffusing the line with a smudger brush. Top off with a charcoal shadow on the lids, two layers of black mascara on the upper lashes, and the glittery-blue shadow of your choice on the lower lash lines and inner corners of the eyes. A neutral gloss and true pink blush will keep it from looking overdone.
Tom Cruise moved his international press tour for Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol to Madrid yesterday. The actor started his morning with an appearance on Spanish TV's El Hormiguero then hit the red carpet with costars Paula Patton and Simon Pegg. There was a special guest star at the premiere as well, Spain's Duke and Duchess of Alba came out to see the fourth installment of Tom's spy franchise. Fans around the globe will get the chance to see Ghost Protocol in theaters ahead of its Dec. 21 release when the studio prereleases the film onto 200 screens starting tomorrow. Tom and the rest of the stars are headed to Brazil next and are expected back in the States over the weekend prior to Monday's NYC event.
Tom Cruise and Paula Patton continued their traveling ways with a stop in Munich today. They've been promoting Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol around the world and have already popped up in Russia, India, and Japan. Tom and Paula were joined by costars Anil Kapoor and Simon Pegg at their movie's debut at the Dubai Film Festival earlier this week, but the trip wasn't just about work. Tom also visited the Taj Mahal and posed for a few pictures with a crowd of fans. His action-packed franchise is currently in the spotlight, but there's also exciting news that Tom is working on a Top Gun sequel.
Tom Cruise and Paula Patton posed together at the Moscow premiere of Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol today. Tom changed up his standard suit with a gray coat to top off his look for the red carpet and a green one for the photo call earlier in the day. Tom's in wintry Russia now, after starting the week in much warmer Dubai. Tom has been promoting Mission: Impossible internationally first, but he'll be swinging through the states on a big press tour later this month. He'll be making the talk-show rounds, of course, but he's already sharing some pretty great anecdotes about life at home with wife Katie Holmes and Suri. Tom's next big role is in Rock of Ages, and apparently Katie should get the credit for his branching out into the musical genre.
Tom spoke about Rock of Ages, saying,"You're just as surprised as I am. Kate kept saying, 'You've got to make a musical.' The dancing of Les Grossman is inspired because Kate is a dancer, she sings, and she would take us to [dance classes]. [She would say] 'I've got this dance class for the family. Come on, we've got to do it. We've got hip-hop class. We've got to do it.' "
