The Costume Institute Benefit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art never fails to bring out the big guns — after all, where else can A-list celebrities, designers, models, and fashion insiders rub elbows, in couture, in one place? For this year's Met Gala, fashion's finest converged to celebrate the "Punk: Chaos to Couture" exhibition, which will honour punk's impact on high fashion over the past three decades (and counting). As is customary for this event, celebrities and models arrive on the arms of their favourite designers, and hit the red carpet with their super-stylish significant others and fashionable friends — so we're rounding up the well-dressed duos (okay, there may be some trios thrown in there as well) from tonight's rock n' roll-inspired red carpet. Click through to see them all now. Additional reporting by Leah Melby
Leonardo DiCaprio debuted Django Unchained in NYC yesterday. Leo was joined by his co-stars Jamie Foxx and Samuel L. Jackson, as well as director Quentin Tarantino, on the red carpet. Leo, who is currently filming The Wolf of Wall Street, also celebrated alongside pals Olivia Wilde, John Legend, Liv Tyler and Cameron Diaz. Leo and Cameron have been seeing a lot of each other lately, as they were spotted celebrating for charity in NYC back in November.
Django's premiere came just ahead of this morning's SAG nominations. Despite all the awards season buzz around the film, it received zero nominations. Nonetheless, early reviews for Django Unchained are excellent. Australian audiences will get to see Quentin's latest for themselves when it's released on Jan. 24.
Jessica Biel donned a long Versace gown on the red carpet at last night's NYC premiere of Playing For Keeps. She posed for photos solo, as did her co-stars in the film Gerard Butler and Uma Thurman. Later, though, Jessica had the company of her husband, Justin Timberlake. Jess changed into a hot mint-green Nina Ricci dress to hit the after-party with JT on her arm. Jessica and Justin have spent quite a bit of time in NYC since their Italian wedding back in October. She's done double promotional duty with two films out this season, Playing For Keeps and Hitchcock. In one interview, she opened up about the joys of life when you're married to a guy who can cook. Jessica Biel told Elle, "He bakes pies. He's Southern, so he's got all this influence from his grandma. He does a three-layer pie . . . and blueberry crunch cake, which is pretty unbelievable. It doesn't happen all that often, thank god. Otherwise, it would be a big problem."
The annual UNICEF Snowflake Ball always draws a crowd of celebs in their black-tie best. This year, that crowd included Selena Gomez, Katy Perry, and more of the Hollywood set who gathered at NYC's Cipriani last night to support UNICEF’s lifesaving efforts across the globe. Selena Gomez and Katy Perry both turned up the drama in their respective evening gowns — Selena in a gold-trimmed Dolce & Gabbana and Katy in a caped Naeem Khan confection. Meanwhile, Kate Mara brought the colour in a coral-hued, lace Jason Wu gown. To see who else wowed at last night's awards, keep clicking — then tell us your pick for best dressed in the comments.
Katy Perry and Selena Gomez put on their party finest for last night's UNICEF Snowflake Ball at Cipriani 42nd Street in NYC. The girls hit the blue carpet before heading inside for dinner and mingling. Katy wore a Naeem Khan caped ensemble, while Selena showed a bit of skin in Dolce & Gabbana. It was a colourful night for the female attendees — Kate Mara donned orange Jason Wu, Uma Thurman picked a dark blue Atelier Versace gown, and Girls star Allison Williams picked a mint green Naeem Khan ensemble. The night was about doing good, and quite a bit of charity took place. Selena tweeted, "So proud to be a part of UNICEF — we raised 2.5 million dollars tonight!"
What a week! It started off on a bit of a sad note, with news of Russell Crowe and Danielle Spencer's split breaking on Monday — he was spotted just two days later on the set of his new film, Noah. On happier notes, though, there were plenty of parties and cute romances playing right under our noses — the Elle Annual Women in Hollywood Celebration drew as big a crowd as ever, with stars like Robert Pattinson, Emma Watson, Emma Stone and more turning up to show their support. Katy Perry and John Mayer went on what looked to be a hot date for his 35th birthday — are they or aren't they?! — and smash-hit Aussie film The Sapphires debuted at the London Film Festival. But that's not even close to all of it — click through the gallery to catch up on all the action as it happened this week!

Robert Pattinson attended Elle's Women in Hollywood last night as one of the few male attendees. He was on hand to honour his Bel Ami leading lady, Uma Thurman. Robert sang Uma's praises in the role, saying their director sought "someone more intelligent, more charming, wittier and better in bed than me, which was obviously very difficult to cast." He also joked about being nervous, saying, "I'm learning how to read tonight. I find this terrifying." He didn't need to be worried, since plenty of ladies seemed happy to keep him company. In addition to chatting with Uma, Rob posed for photos with Jaime King and his Twilight pal Anna Kendrick. Rob's real-life leading lady, Kristen Stewart, skipped the event. Kristen and Rob have been hanging out, though, enjoying nights and afternoons out together around town.
The grey carpet at last night's Elle Women in Hollywood Awards was jam-packed with celebrities. Emma Stone wore a vibrant Valentino to mingle with her friend, and co-star in The Help, Ahna O'Reilly. Nina Dobrev also went bold in blue Vera Wang, while Sarah Jessica Parker picked a more muted Calvin Klein. Emma Watson, also in Calvin Klein, went with black. Lea Michele likewise went dark, but her edgy Zimmermann look featured a sheer overlay atop a leotard. The ladies posed for photos before heading inside the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills to honour celebs like Cate Blanchett, Elle Fanning, Kristen Wiig and more. Sarah Jessica and Emma were also among those who were feted by master of ceremonies Joel McHale.
I'd love to tell you the full star-studded cast of Movie 43 but I'm afraid we'd be here all day. The trailer for off-the-wall comedy includes Hugh Jackman, Kate Winslet, Anna Faris, Emma Stone, Jason Sudeikis, Chris Pratt, Chloë Moretz, Justin Long and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. The film is a collection of 25 different stories, and as far as I can tell, the only common theme is stars behaving badly. Halle Berry blows out the candles on a blind kid's birthday cake, Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber bully their teenager, and Gerard Butler is a leprechaun.
A handful of bloated comedies have proven that the mega-ensemble is a tricky beast, but this has me wondering if the formula might actually work this time. It could be amazing, or it could be an epic fail. Watch the NSFW trailer after the jump.
