InStyle magazine hosted their annual Women of Style Awards last night in Sydney, drawing a fabulously dressed crowd to Eveleigh's CarriageWorks. Designer Carla Zampatti was honoured with the Fashion Award, and an absentee Nicole Kidman was awarded the Hall of Fame gong. We, as usual, were just as interested in scoping out the what the A-list crowd wore to this style-driven event as who-won-what. Lindy Klim wowed in a sculptural Toni Maticevski number, The Voice alumn' Emma Birdsall went the retro route in a brocade Carla Zampatti number, Samara Weaving showed off her killer figure in a sheer-spliced LBD and Kate Waterhouse kept it casual in a relaxed Lanvin top + pant combo.

We couldn't help but notice that some of the stellar celebrity dresses from last night's AACTA Awards in Sydney looked mighty familiar to us. We're all for recycling a fabulous frock, don't get us wrong now, and hey! If it's good enough for Kate Middleton, it's certainly good enough for Sydney's A-list attendees. From Jessica Mauboy's second Steven Khalil gown for the evening, to Jessica McNamee's sophisticated Carl Kapp sheath to the Dior dress that is making its third red carpet appearance — we want to get your take on who wore it best. Go on, you know you've got an opinion.
Bold, bright colour, graphic prints and pale and pretty looks were the top three trends we noticed on the ARIA Awards red carpet. Ricki-Lee Coulter, DJ Havana Brown and Sarah De Bono opted for stand-out colour, while punchy prints were the way forward for Nicki Minaj (in Camilla), Kimbra, Jesinta Campbell and Ruby Rose (via a custom-designed Romance Was Born frock). Then there was the pale and interesting brigade; Taylor Swift's romantic Elie Saab gown and Samantha Jade's sculptural number adding a little elegance to the black carpet. We can't pick a favourite (yet), so we're rounding up all the celebrity looks so that you can make an informed decision. Step inside and see who wore what to the 2012 ARIA Awards.

This has been a bit of a bumper week when it comes to celebrities on social media! First we introduced you to all the best people to follow on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest, then we brought you our Top 10 total round up and now? Well now we're winding down with a collection of the best tweets of the week. From Guy Sebastian lamenting a lost opportunity with beauty giant Chanel, to Alexa Chung taking issue with children's game pass the parcel, we were highly amused, often bemused and once or twice, a little confused, when we caught up with all the best stars on Twitter. Keen to know more? One of our favourite male actors is new to the Twittersphere — and you'll never guess who he credits with convincing him to join — Nicole Richie is making a case for under-eye bags and Ellen DeGeneres has some rather unusual carry-on luggage . . . But there's heaps more, still. You'd better clicking and reading!
Lots of Australian stars made their way to the Hordern Pavilion for Myer’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection launch last night. Runway star and Myer ambassador Jennifer Hawkins glittered in gold sass & bide on the black carpet, keeping her appearance short and sweet so she could get ready for the catwalk. Kris Smith looked smart in a suit — and showed off some facial hair — before revealing his shirtless physique to model upcoming men’s Summer fashion. Laura Dundovic and Laura Csortan matched in metallics, wearing Jayson Brunsdon and Manning Cartell respectively, while Jesinta Campbell was glowing in floral Manning Cartell and excited to talk about her recent trip to LA, Vegas and Mexico, telling us, “It was so much fun. It was funny — there was a write-up the other day about the tan, and they said how fake it looked and how shocking it was. And I said, ‘Let me tell you, Mexico does not come in a can!’” TV stars were also well represented, with The Voice’s Emma Birdsall, Sarah De Bono and Darren Percival, MasterChef’s Andy Allen and Ben Milbourne, and Sunrise’s Melissa Doyle and David Koch attending.

One of the best moments at any fashion show is the front row arrivals. It's such a treat to see our favourite celebrities all primped and preened, and looking their best. The beauty looks on show at last night's Myer Spring Summer 2013 Collections were very scrumptious, with the likes of Jennifer Hawkins, Jesinta Campbell and the amazing sass & bide girls, Sarah-Jane Clarke and Heidi Middleton, looking so bronzed we wanted to run away to a very stylish island with them. Click through to see the front row beauty looks up close and personal.
The Myer Spring Summer 2013 collection launch at the Horden Pavilion brought our Sydney's style set for the second time this week, with many celebs backing up from Tuesday's David Jones show. The bar stayed high in terms of front-row style stalking, with Spring-ready ensembles walking the red rug for the department store. Top marks go to golden girl Jennifer Hawkins, who opted for a custom-designed sass & bide sequinned mini prior to strutting her stuff, Jesinta Campbell and her figure-hugging floral frock courtesy of Manning Cartell, Kate Peck who opted for a fun, feathered look from Aurelio Costarella, Emma Birdsall and her signature retro style in LP33.3, Laura Dundovic whose girly Jayson Brunsdon prom-style frock was a big hit and Kyly Clarke (nee Boldy) who turned heads in head-to-toe Louis Vuitton. Not to mention Myer's stable of stylish designer stars . . . the sass & bide girls and Kym Ellery looked particularly fabulous. Step inside to get caught up on who-wore-what last night . . .

It was all so beautiful and simple in beauty land this week. We fell head over heels for Sophia Bush's understated elegance at the InStyle Summer Soirée — her red-brown lip and simple hairstyle were soft and pretty, but strong enough to make a big beauty statement. Two gorgeous models wowed us at Naomi Campbell's Fashion For Relief charity event — Naomi with her bare-looking skin and Lily Donaldson with her bold red lip; we love seeing staple beauty trends make a return on the red carpet. There's all this and more in our round-up of the top five beauty looks of the week, so get flicking, and start prepping!
Katy Perry is in town, did you know? Pop was front and centre on the red carpet on Saturday night for the Australian premiere of Katy Perry: Part of Me, quizzing the pop star of her Aussie fans. We have some serious time for Ms Perry's crucifix-embellished Versace cocktail frock and ever-popular Un Bout Louboutins, but think that the celeb-filled red carpet deserves a little attention, too. Ricki-Lee Coulter looked sexy in slick strides by one of our favourite local labels Watson X Watson which she teamed with a Viktor & Rolf shirt and Isabel Marant heels, Ruby Rose got cute in a cartoon-ish ensemble and The Voice's Emma Birdsall worked her signature retro style in an elegant LBD by LP33. Snoop who wore what on Katy's pink carpet. . .
