Stars and Starz in Hollywood

Marking the end of this year’s Hollywood Film Festival, the stars and Starz celebrated at the 15th Hollywood Film Awards Gala last night. George Clooney (who showed up with  girlfriend Stacy Keibler on his arm, naturally) won Actor of the Year and Michelle Williams won Actress of the Year. In her acceptance speech, The My Week With Marilyn star told the audience, “All that Marilyn Monroe ever really wanted was to be taken seriously as an actress. She never got the recognition she craved.” That is certainly not true of Williams’ fame.

In our opinion, the to-die-for looks of the night were of the black and nude variety. Williams rocked our fave black look (a Nina Ricci dress) with Carey Mulligan in a close second. In the neutral corner, Emma Stone, Elle Fanning, Felicity Jones and Ahna O’Reilly were topped only by Julianne Hough in a plunging-neckline, open-backed dress by Naeem Khan.
