Catherine Zeta-Jones glimmered on tonight's red carpet in a golden Zuhair Murad gown. Her dress got its high shine from decadent metallic beadwork, which swirled around its strapless silhouette and transitioned into the skirt's sheer panels. The opulence continued to her jewelry — she wore more than 200 carats of naturally colored diamonds from Lorraine Schwartz, valued at a whopping $1 million!

Emmy Rossum's new movie, Beautiful Creatures, is out, so the actress jetted off to Mexico City to promote her latest project in style. For her photocall duties, Emmy exuded vintage glamour in a white lace Thomas Wylde dress with long sleeves and matching white strappy Rene Caovilla sandals, then finished off with Swarovski silver crystal earrings and a bold pink lip. For the red carpet premiere, Emmy stuck to her ladylike silhouette, but this time opted for a rich red color with a chiffon pleated Zuhair Murad number. Sparkly chandelier earrings, a matching cuff bracelet, and tan snakeskin pumps rounded out her bold look. Both picks fuse ladylike with glamour, but which do you love more?
The second annual NFL Honors award show turned out a serious three-way (fashion) tie, courtesy of Nina Dobrev's, Olivia Munn's, and Chrissy Teigen's red-carpet appearances. Here's the play-by-play. Nina, who played in DirecTV's celebrity beach bowl earlier in the day, chose a sweet light-blue Zuhair Murad mini and silver sandals for the evening's event. But The Vampire Diaries star's dress was anything but simple: her lacy floral top and geometric-print A-line skirt proved doubly dynamic. Olivia stepped out in a bright — albeit glamorous — coral-hued one-shoulder gown by Izmaylova, complete with a sexy thigh-high split, then finished off the floor-length look with strappy nude Casadei heels. Chrissy worked a strapless teal minidress and sleek gold sandals, but what did we love most about this seemingly minimalist-cool cocktail number? The asymmetrical-cut skirt, which showed off her enviable stems perfectly. Now it's time for you to weigh in: which star's NFL Honors ensemble gets your vote?
It's official: we've spotted the not-so-basic black dress trend at not one, not two, but three award shows so far. We first noticed it at the Critics' Choice Awards, then saw it crop up again at the Golden Globes, and now Claire Danes, Anne Hathaway, and Michelle Dockery (just to name a few) are opting for reinvented and reimagined black gowns at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. We're talking about dresses with sexy sheer cutouts, high-shine embellishments, and strategically placed ruffles. If there's one thing we can take away, it's that 2013 is the year we may take a second look at our go-to black dress in the back of our closets — it's time for an update.
We spotted Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr on the red carpet and immediately went into awe-struck overload. But let's be honest — while Orlando is easy on the eyes, Miranda never fails to impress us with her insanely on-point sense of style. Wearing the color of the night (berry red!) and with ample sex appeal (hello, thigh-high slit and deep-V neckline!), we couldn't think of a better person, er, supermodel to don this revealing Zuhair Murad gown. She partnered the look with decadent gem-encrusted drop earrings, loose Victoria's Secret-worthy waves, a metallic clutch, and strappy heels. Oh yeah, and having the right kind of "arm candy" always helps, too. Are you loving Miranda's latest?Vote on all of our Golden Globe Awards polls here!
If there's one thing we can always count on Jennifer Lopez for in the fashion department, it's all-out sex appeal. Her Zuhair Murad Spring '13 long-sleeved, ivory-hued, lace-embroidered gown left little to the imagination, and by this, we mean it hit every body-hugging note. Sure, it was a more covered-up choice for the star, but let's not forget about that gorgeous back cutout, a detail that certainly added a double dose of skin-baring intrigue. White statement earrings and sleek side-swept waves provided the polish needed to take her look from dazzling to downright stunning. Are you a fan?Vote on all of our Golden Globe Awards polls here!
Elle Fanning isn't the only starlet to don a dress with floral appliqués tonight. Marion Cotillard arrived on the red carpet in a lace fit-and-flare dress by Zuhair Murad, whose sleek silhouette channeled a slightly retro vibe — if the 1940s were filled with sumptuous lace dresses adorned with electrically colored floral appliqués. She paired her personality-packed dress with a nude clutch and matching heels to let the colors, textures, and details of her frock sing. But no outfit would be complete without a few jewels, right? Chandelier earrings, a diamond bracelet, and a cocktail ring, all from Chopard, set her look off with added sparkle. Aside from her sleek ensemble, she also kept her hair streamlined, with her bangs pulled neatly to the side. What do you think of Marion's floral look?

Taylor Swift had us doing a double take as she stepped onto the red carpet in a dazzling Zuhair Murad minidress adorned with floral embellishments and gold beadwork at the American Music Awards in LA. She accessorized her metallic look with shimmering Jimmy Choo sandals ($775), gold floral studs, and her signature red nail polish. Re-create Taylor's shining and sexy look by pairing her exact sandals with a sparkling minidress and gold studs for date night or test-drive these Chinese Laundry sandals ($60) for a more budget-friendly option.
While many celebrities love to show off their décolletage on the red carpet, some have been opting to cover up in high-neck dresses for a more demure look. Anna Kendrick chose a nude embellished Zuhair Murad dress with a high neck and Brian Atwood sandals for the LA premiere of Pitch Perfect, Ashley Madekwe wore a teal lace high-neck dress by Kain at a BAFTA event in LA, and Nina Dobrev also donned a high-neck Zuhair Murad with long sleeves at the I Heart Radio festival in Las Vegas. Because the necklines are so high up, the hemlines on high-neck dresses can afford to be way more mini, so as to balance out the proportions. To get in on the celeb-approved style, shop our favorite high-neck dresses below.
Sofia Vergara looked gorgeous in a turquoise Zuhair Murad gown on the red carpet at this evening's Emmy Awards in LA. It's the third year in a row Sofia's attended to watch as TV's best actors and shows are honored. In both 2011 and 2010, Sofia's Modern Family won gold as outstanding comedy series. They're up again in the same category, and Sofia herself could take home outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series — it's the third time she's up for that honor. One thing makes this time around different for Sofia — it's the first time she's nominated as a bride-to-be! Sofia became engaged to boyfriend Nick Loeb in July, around the time she rang in her 40th year.
