This Summer, some of the most well-known women in Hollywood will be lighting up the big screen as superheroes, cops, magicians, '90s teens, and more. While some actresses are returning to popular roles for sequels, others will be treading in new territory — like Emma Watson, who's playing a shallow socialite in Sofia Coppola's latest film. We've already shown you the boys of Summer, so now take a look at the leading ladies of Summer!
While the Cannes festivities upped the glamour quotient on this week's celebrity set, there's plenty more in the way of red carpet styling fodder from a crew we didn't see in the French Riviera. Olivia Wilde kicked off the week with the most elegant kind of Summer dressing in Morocco, while Zoe Saldana continued her very chic Star Trek tour stateside, and Coco Rocha showed off some high-wattage eventwear at the American Ballet Spring Gala. For a glimpse of those and more of this week's standouts, just start clicking.
Star Trek Into Darkness premieres today, and leading ladies Zoe Saldana and Alice Eve have been on their beauty A-game on the red carpet. With so many stops on their press tour, it was becoming increasingly difficult to choose whose look we love best. So we're leaving that up to you. Vote on which Trekkie girl gets your top marks in this beauty faceoff.
The Cannes Film Festival kicked off in the South of France, and so many leading ladies (and gents) have already made their way over to the Riviera for this glamorous affair. The Cannes red carpets always deliver incredible fashions, so watch on to see who we're keeping our eyes peeled on this time around. On Allison: Rebecca Taylor suit, Bebe top.
The sunnier seasons herald in a much more relaxed approach to dressing. For most, that means shedding the layers, and keeping it basic. For others — we count repeat performer Diane Kruger among them — it means breaking out the crop top. Last year, we saw the resurgence of bare midriffs in a noticeable way, and now it's becoming the go-to trend for Hollywood's A-list.
And thanks to Dolce & Gabbana, Prabal Gurung, Calvin Klein, and Marc Jacobs, the latest set of crop top-wearing stars aren't limiting the silhouette to the usual sculpted bralette style. Instead, Kruger chose a sportier version, Doutzen Kroes went with stripes and long sleeves, and Julia Restoin Roitfeld's breezy white iteration reminded us of a sexy slip dress. Since it's only mid-May and Summer hasn't even officially started, we're wondering: Will you be taking the crop-top look for a spin this season?
We can't get enough of Zoe Saldana's always on-point red carpet looks for the Star Trek Into Darkness promotional tour, but we also welcome her casual approach to making the daytime press rounds. En route to an interview at The Grove in LA, the actress supplied us with not one but two inspirational shorts ensembles. The first one was by Emilio Pucci: a turquoise printed silk top and crisp matching shorts, both from the Fall 2013 collection. The other — a dusty-rose lace blouse with white shorts, both by Dolce & Gabbana — was entirely dainty. Zoe completed both styles with the same pair of turquoise peep-toe pumps for that unexpected pop of color. We've pulled together some Saldana-inspired outfits to get you inspired to make shorts a style mainstay. Shop our picks below.
Star Trek's latest chapter isn't just for Trekkies. Zoe Saldana and Alice Eve's promo tour has already been proof of the glamour on Star Trek Into Darkness's red carpets. But last night's premiere got quadruple the celebrity-style treatment when Kate Beckinsale and Jennifer Morrison joined the film's leading ladies in LA. Jennifer channeled Disco-era dazzle in a sequined jumpsuit, then polished it off with nude platform pumps and a pair of major jewel-drop earrings. Kate took a more subtle approach in a riff on the classic LBD, a strapless and asymmetrical-hemmed dress from Alberta Ferretti, which she amped up with a playful pair of neon sandals. As for the night's costars, Zoe Saldana bared her midriff in a ruffled, nude peekaboo confection from Rodarte's Fall '13 collection and Alice Eve slipped into a sleek gold and black sheath from Zuhair Murad. That's the rundown on who wore what; now it's time to cast your vote.
Tom Cruise supported his fellow action stars when he dropped by the Star Trek Into Darkness premiere in LA yesterday. He met up with director J.J. Abrams at the afterparty at AV nightclub and chatted with Paramount Pictures CEO Brad Grey. Meanwhile, the film's star Zoe Saldana created a buzz of her own when she walked the gray carpet in a sheer Rodarte dress. She later met up with an Alberta Ferretti-clad Kate Beckinsale inside the event, as well as her costars Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto. Jennifer Morrison created a red carpet moment when she dropped by the premiere while wearing an Edition by Georges Chakra powder blue jumpsuit. Also in attendance was Zoe's costar Alice Eve, who previously told us that she had trouble keeping all the secrets about the Star Trek script to herself.
