Rachel McAdams was one of the stars who visited Variety's studio at Holt Renfrew during the Toronto International Film Festival yesterday. She wore a sexy black and tan Lanvin dress for the event, which also brought out Eli Roth, Jason Bateman, and Paula Patton. Rachel's been in Canada promoting multiple projects, and she hit the red carpet for the premiere of Passion in a sexy black look last night. Rachel's boyfriend, Michael Sheen, joined her, though the duo didn't pose for photos together. He was also there to support Rachel at the debut of To the Wonder earlier this week. We're watching all the celebrities at TIFF, so make sure to check back until the festival wraps up on Sunday.
Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington shared scenes with Paula Patton last night on the New Orleans set of 2 Guns. Denzel arrived in casual attire, then changed into a crisp Naval uniform. Mark, meanwhile, showed off his ripped muscles in a tight tank. Mark's dedication to fitness is one of the many reasons he's in the running to be this year's PopSugar shirtless champ. He's up against other well-toned stars like Chris Hemsworth, Joe Manganiello, Tom Cruise, and David Beckham — have you filled out your shirtless bracket yet? Mark's sharing the secret to his chiseled abs and bulging biceps, recently starring in a video detailing elements of his workout routine. The fitness buff is also talking up a line of nutrition supplements he's endorsing, appropriately named Marked.
First there was the little black dress, then the little white dress, and now celebs are painting the town in red-hot frocks. From Christa B. Allen in a cutout style by Contrarian New York ($380) to Jessica Alba in a form-fitting sheath to Miranda Kerr in a flirty, lacy Lover number ($1,050), trendsetting A-listers have have been working their red-hued numbers around the globe. Check out what other starlets have been rocking the LRD, how they styled them, and where you can buy a similar dress to get in on the Hollywood trend.
While out and about in NYC this morning, Paula Patton worked leather on leather, starting with a black leather biker jacket, which she topped over a printed tee, then adding more leather via black leather pants. She wore retro-cool round shades to protect her eyes, then got in on Hollywood's sneaker obsession via black-and-white high-top Chanel sneakers. While leather is fierce on its own, it has even more badass potential when paired with itself. For a Summer version of Paula's look, try a black leather vest with leather shorts or a leather miniskirt.
Celebs are officially obsessed with the motorcycle-jacket trend, and we are super excited to see them varying the style from leather to suede. As you know, suede is just a form of leather with a napped finish, and its nonshiny appearance opens up a whole new category for the biker-chic trend. Olivia Wilde layered her tough TheEternal leather jacket over an embroidered dress in NYC, while Emma Roberts chose a black suede moto-style jacket to rough up her black-and-white frock in LA. Whether you're looking for a black leather jacket, a suede topper, or a bold colored number, step inside to see a handful of celebs in various styles, and then shop our favorite leather and suede picks.
No matter what she's wearing, Paula Patton's style is always sophisticated with a sexy edge. She shows just enough skin but still leaves lots to the imagination, which we love. While promoting her latest project, Pepsi NEXT, Paula dished all about fashion. Here is how the actress describes her own style: "My personal style is quite eclectic. I like to dress according to the mood I'm in or how I feel like expressing myself depending on what I'm doing whatever day or night," she told us. "I tend to like clothes that accentuate the feminine form and are unique but still somewhat classic."

Emma Stone, Viola Davis, and Octavia Spencer headed to the Beverly Hills Hotel for Essence magazine's annual Black Women in Hollywood luncheon yesterday.

Essence's current cover girl, Kerry Washington, joined the ladies in Cushnie Et Ochs and bright heels while her fellow Women in Hollywood honoree Paula Patton donned Marchesa.
