In terms of celebrity events and Aussie-centric news, it's been a pretty massive week to keep up with! First came the sad news that Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom have parted ways after six years together — but what got people talking the most was that the pair were spotted hanging out together the next day. Kim Kardashian celebrated her 33rd birthday in style, Katy Perry hit Sydney (and the shops!) and Princess Mary and Prince Frderik wrapped up their whirldwind trip Down Under during the week. And let's not forget the celebrity pregnancy announcement, a new couple making their first appearance together, and Angelina Jolie hanging out on the Gold Coast! There's plenty more to see, click through to catch up.
It takes a seriously cool party to hold down three of the most famous faces in the world for a night — but then, Rimmel London never does things by halves! The iconic beauty brand enlisted two of its ambassadors, Kate Moss and Georgia May Jagger to help them celebrate its 180th anniversary (it looks so young for its age) at Covent Garden in London. Georgia and Kate both made their arrivals in true Brit style — in Rimmel-branded black cabs — before settling in for a night of celebrations, which included a fashion show and a surprise performance from Rita Ora.
While she was there, Rita took the opportunity to celebrate her upcoming beauty collaboration with the brand. The latest star to join forces with Rimmel, Rita will release a capsule collection in March next year — and judging by the epic beauty looks Rita carries off, we can expect some bold and beautiful things from the line.

On Thursday night, Phillip Lim hosted one of the most anticipated events of New York Fashion Week: a party celebrating his Target collaboration. Everyone from Solange Knowles to Jessica Alba and Maria Sharapova attended the event, and all of them were wearing pieces from the offering.
The rest of the party's guest list, which included Lim's fellow designers Richard Chai and Marchesa's Keren Craig, had the opportunity to shop the collaboration early. Throngs of attendees took that opportunity, which meant the party was packed and more than a little busy. But with the chance to get pieces of such a great collaboration 10 days early, what else could you expect?

When Dolce & Gabbana throw a party, two things are certain: the crowd will be fabulous, as will the clothing. And when the label closed Haute Couture Fashion Week with a Venetian bash at the Palazzo Pisani Moretta, the stakes were even higher. Fashion favorites like Caterina Murino, Paloma Faith, and Daisy Lowe — all pictured above — were on hand to celebrate, as were Karen Elson, Giovanna Battaglia, and Anna Dello Russo, who spared no detail for the Italian label's masquerade ball in celebration of the Alta Moda collection. The men of the hour, Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce, got particularly into the spirit, posing with guests in full matador and jester regalia, respectively.

If you build it, they will come — even if it's raining cats and dogs. On Monday, Stella McCartney arranged her Resort 2014 collection in New York City's very wet Jefferson Market Gardens. The clothes, of course, shined just as bright as the guest list: the offering was composed primarily of garments in yellow, cream, and pale pink. McCartney injected layers of interest to her colour story with some specially developed fabrics, like a python-embossed jacquard and a rose-coloured paisley print. But perhaps the most interesting pieces were the ones that nodded playfully to the surrealist movement, with lips appearing as prints, lace embroideries, and even beaded appliqués. A look at all the clothes — and the stars who loved them — here in the gallery.
We've said it before and we'll say it again: no one throws a party like the fashion industry. After yesterday's CFDA Awards, the industry gathered at a collection of after-parties that brought together designers, models, and celebrities alike. Swarovski hosted an official afterparty at the Top of The Standard at New York's Standard hotel, where nearly everyone who walked the red carpet was spotted. Karlie Kloss blew kisses at the camera, while Prabal Gurung simply smooched his date, Candice Swanepoel, on the cheek. A look at all those pictures and more, straight ahead.

Super Bowl 2013 has already attracted plenty of stars to New Orleans and even if they couldn't get there, they're taking part in festivities around the country. Sofia Vergara and Jeremy Renner linked up at the Rolling Stone party held at the Bud Light Hotel yesterday, while today, Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder, Josh Hutcherson and more got competitive during a celebrity beach bowl challenge. Though the game is a bigger deal in America, it's always fun to see the stars stepping out for a bit of fun. Click through to see the latest pics as the stars party towards the 2013 Super Bowl!
Chanel always attracts a fashionable crowd, so it's no surprise to see the likes of Blake Lively, Diane Kruger, Alexa Chung, and more celebrating the 80th anniversary of Chanel's Bijoux de Diamantes. Not to mention that this was Blake's first official appearance since she secretly tied the knot with Ryan Reynolds back in September. Even though Blake kept her hands strategically placed in her pockets, we did manage to get a glimpse of her shiny new ring. Watch on to see all the looks from the party, and let us know which ensemble you like most!
Last night's LA premiere of Eclipse brought out all the film's stars on the red carpet. Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner were among those who brought the biggest screams from long-waiting fans, and Kristen said her favorite part of the night was being surrounded by so much love. The gang moved on after the screening to the afterparty, with Kristen ditching her one-shouldered Elie Saab dress for her standard jeans and sneakers. Robert stayed in his maroon Gucci suit, as he and Kristen stuck together and seemed comfortable posing side by side. Nikki Reed made the rounds, and Taylor Lautner caught up with his Abduction costar Lily Collins. It was an evening all about Twilight.

Let's take a break from all the shows — for just one moment — and zone in on an RAFW partay, shall we? Last night's Harper's BAZAAR and BlackBerry soiree attracted the who's who of Sydney's fashion scene, as well as a few famous faces. Lara Bingle (In Burberry) took a break from her blogging duties to attend, and Terry Biviano had a well deserved drink after producing some spectacular heels for Dion Lee's show today.
