>> This season, Stella McCartney decided to forgo her usual show in Paris for an intimate — and unorthodox — dinner presentation at London Fashion Week. Around 100 guests — including Kate Moss, Stella Tennant, Yasmin Le Bon, and Rihanna — attended the Saturday evening event, which began with a magic show and finished with a formal jazz band. The real excitement, however, came with the presentation of McCartney's Fall 2012 collection. While guests dined unassumingly at their tables, models burst forth from the crowd — flash mob-style — in an energetic display of table-dancing, chair-passing, and rowdy hip-shaking. "It was nice to see something different, something dramatic. The clothes looked great," guest Bianca Jagger exclaimed.
While the carpet may have been a somber one, stars came out to celebrate the 54th Grammy Awards with stunning gowns. Cutout and low-back dresses trended throughout the night, with Taylor Swift, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Rihanna all wearing gowns with a little skin showing. Check out each of their looks in today's Grammy Fab Flash!

Stella McCartney and Gwyneth Paltrow took Cameron Diaz and Reese Witherspoon to The Arts Club in London last night. The ladies met up for a European reunion while Reese was in the UK promoting This Means War. Cameron has been across the pond for the last week, having been in Paris to attend a variety of the haute couture shows. Gwyneth even made a quick jaunt to France, where she met up with friends and ate a few good meals.
Cameron and Gwyneth launched The Arts Club together back in October during one of Cameron's recent visits there. Gwyneth and Cameron have grown particularly close over the last year, hanging out in London, LA, and NYC. Gwyneth has also recently hit the town with her son, Moses. She tweeted about taking Moses to see the David Hockney exhibition at the Royal Academy and shared a photo of him checking out the landscapes.

Black and white have always been a killer team — both chic on their own, but together it's double the impact. Case in point: Naomi Watts in a black-and-white Stella McCartney number in Sydney. Imagine the dress sans the white piping around the neckline; still fab, but not as wow-worthy. So let's take a lesson from Naomi's style book and add an uber-chic black-and-white dress to our wardrobes. And not any dress will do — it must have the same sleekness as the Stella, a bit geometric, with a classy air. Look no further than the 10 dresses we selected below. Wear them with coordinating accessories, like Naomi did, or with a pop of color for mega impact.

Kate Moss celebrated her 38th year at dinner in London last night with her husband, Jamie Hince. They went for a meal at China Tang, inside The Dorchester hotel, where they were joined by one of Kate's BFFs, Stella McCartney. We celebrated the supermodel's milestone with a look back at Kate Moss's best jet-setting moments. This year brought a much quieter party for Kate, who's well-known for marking birthdays with huge blowouts. In recent years, she's hosted a Beautiful and the Damned-themed bash, caroused with friends for 18 hours in a row — short of her 36-hour goal — and even hosted a medieval party in her home's garden. Of course, in 2011 Kate's biggest bash was her wedding to Jamie Hince. Kate and Jamie married at her countryside home in a lavish three-day event that featured tents, dress-up areas, and a long list of A-list guests.
