This week we learned that even celebrity BFF squads have limitations. Jennifer Lawrence revealed she and Amy Schumer will not walk the Golden Globes red carpet in matching Dior gowns, per some scoop she delivered on Live with Kelly & Michael.
"I don't think we'll be able to. I don't think Dior has a sense of humor, [but] they have a great sense of fashion," she quipped. Both ladies are nominated in the best-actress category for this year's Globes, and Lawrence is pretty much 110% going to be in Dior due to her contract with the fashion house.

The star had first floated the idea to E! last weekend. "We're going to try to figure out how to wear the exact same thing. That's my mission. I really want us to wear the same thing."
While we're giving up the idea of completely matching gowns, it's hard to believe that this funny pair won't have something up their sleeves. Lawrence will definitely be in Dior, but Schumer doesn't have any such commitments. We can't imagine J-Law would leak details about her dress to her bestie, but maybe Schumer will find a gown that's similar in style to something her friend's worn before?
Plus, Lawrence has proved that she's a pro at princess-friendly ballgowns, but Schumer tends to stick to minis that flash her legs (one of the exceptions was the striking white Halston Heritage gown below). The formality of the Globes' carpet will likely see the comedian in a floor-length style again, but we don't predict much volume. And while her BFF put the kibosh on matching dresses, she didn't go so far as to say Dior wouldn't be down to do similar styles...

Can't you just picture it? Lawrence in a breathtaking silhouette that nips in at the waist and fans out dramatically, posing alongside Schumer in a fluid column gown done in the same material? It could totally happen guys.
Remember when Kylie Jenner insisted that her stylish moments weren't really indicative of her true self? ("People love fashion, but that's so not me.") Well, the stunning champagne-colored silk gown she picked for last night's Diamond Ball could have fooled us—this is a number for someone who loves dressing up. It's by August Getty Atelier, and it's far-and-away her most glamorous moment ever.
As the evening's host, it was only fitting for Rihanna to bring out some big-time fashion too. Her dramatic champagne silk satin gown and matching cape are Dior Haute Couture; her shoes are also Dior.
The other attendees giving RiRi and KJ a run for their best-dressed money? Zendaya, who flaunted any normal red-carpet conventions by rocking a Rosie Assoulin look that mixed a crop top with wide-leg pants to wondrous effect.
Emily Ratajkowski's one-shouldered black Rhea Costa dress was simpler than the rest, but draped in a way that made it perfect for dancing (see the Instagram proof here).
The high-glam evening is an annual event thrown by Rihanna to honor the Clara Lionel Foundation, a Barbados-based cause created to honor her grandparents. It's not the first time this week the popstar has been in the news showing her support either—she also announced she'd be showing her Puma collection at New York Fashion Week this February by way of an auction item that supports the foundation.

Popular opinion might lead you to believe the James Bond franchise is all about a very dashing super spy guy, but on the red carpet it's anything but. The women associated with the super spy are characteristically gorgeous (and lethal), but their wardrobes deserve just as much attention as any other aspect. Now that the red carpet marathon surrounding 007's latest, Spectre, has wrapped up, we're devoting some time to browsing through some of the very best Bond Girl looks Naomie Harris gave us because, seriously, they're too good not to.
For one of her last red-carpet appearances to promote the movie, she wore a strapless Roksanda dress in vivid electric blue and black. It was one of her most daring selections, with folds at the front that added various levels and high-shine leather that called attention to her bust. Her ankle-strap sandals are Giuseppe Zanotti.
For a premiere in Mexico City she went neutral, picking this epically woven Balmain gown. After the label's insane H&M collaboration, anyone would be forgiven for thinking the house primarily worked in bold colors and lots of heavy embellishments. This warm tan pick feels refreshingly different, yet just as sexy.
It was grassy green Lanvin at a more casual event preceeding that stop's premiere showing. With expertly done darts and pleating, the silhouette was elevated way above a simple shift into something that looked made for her figure.
While in Moscow she went high-wattage with a long sleeve golden Michael Kors dress.
The serious glam was put away for something a bit more cheeky when the cast attended a daytime event (those are co-stars Ralph Fiennes and Dave Bautista she's with). In lieu of a cocktail frock she picked a citrus-colored Altuzarra suit and bright Sophia Webster heels.
Harris had a little fairytale princess moment in Berlin, wearing a Valentino gown with a celestial feel to it. The actual dress (available for purchase here) might be a bit too scandalous for most royals due to the fully sheer skirt.
And hurrah for the classic American designer she sported in Switzerland! At Spectre's Zurich premiere she looked stunning in a striped blue and white Ralph Lauren Collection ballgown that featured a saucy leg slit.
The movie had a royal moment at its London premiere, when Kate Middleton and Prince William attended. While the Duchess' sheer powder blue Jenny Packham might have been the most buzzed-about dress from the red carpet, Harris' striking orange Stella McCartney gown was phenomenal as well. Her diamonds were Harry Winston.
After the party was the after party, and the actress ditched the long style in favor of a super sexy Thierry Mugler mini. If you examine closely, you'll see that it's actually various squares held together at the corner, making for lots of seductive little flashes of skin. Her clutch is Jimmy Choo and shoes are from Gisueppe Zanotti.
And for one of her very first spots supporting the movie, also in London, she wore a black and orange Christian Dior mini with lace-up black heels. Gorgeous example of how well bright colors look at a formal event, no?
Another movie that's meant big fashion? The Hunger Games, now in its final round of red-carpet premieres and bringing us tons of good style moments.
We've seen our fair share of "naked dress" this year. Remember when Karlie Kloss wore their barely-there Atelier Versace gown off the runway and straight to a gala dinner? (We agree, Karlie, definitely not a dress for take-out.) And who could forget a the sheer and cutout gowns worn by Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian West, and Beyonce to the Met Gala? The "naked" look is perfect for the red carpet, but in real life—not so much. But Jennifer Lawrence may have just changed our minds. Check out the Dior look she wore at last night's Hunger Game: Mockingly Part 2 premiere at Odeon Leicester Square in London. Take a look at the gorgeous details:
This flowing Dior Couture gown from the fall 2015 collection has the makings of a naked dress without being too naked. The low slits on the side don't dip as far down as we've seen on full-fledged NDs. Additionally, the slits are connected by gold chains, giving the dress an elevated vibe, especially paired with her matching gold jewelry and fierce beauty look. So sophisticated—with just a touch of naked!
Jennifer didn't make any changes to the dress, as it appears just as it did on the runway.

When a huge fashion house like Christian Dior sponsors a glitzy event like the Guggenheim International Gala, it stands to reason that the attendees are going to bring it in the fashion department. Our best-dressed list from last night's event didn't disappoint, with every single one of them in Dior (from the gowns to the jewels and clutches).
Dakota Johnson and Emily Blunt both chose solids that made for striking looks. Johnson's sparkled thanks to a dose of silver sequins across the torso, while Blunt's fiery silk cadi pick needed no other embellishment than her Dior Fine Jewelry earrings.
Leelee Sobieski was in a long-sleeve dress from the house's haute couture range. Her pumps and clutch were also Dior, but we love her pick of jewelry for the night. Rather than accenting with jaw-dropping gems, the brainy star went with a watch. Chic!
And as granddaughter-to-The-King—by which we mean Elvis Presley—it's only fitting that Riley Keough was another guest stepping out in couture. With a plunging neckline and demure, ankle-flashing hemline, the silhouette was arrestingly unique (the label terms it an "evening dress", FYI).
Wondering where Dior's most loyal subject was? Jennifer Lawrence has been busy promoting The Hunger Games (while wearing Dior, of course).
In his three and a half years at Dior, Raf Simons singlehandedly brought back the red carpet magic that the house's founder, Christian Dior, was known for back in the '50s. As the designer's swift departure from Dior hit the wires this morning, we're taking a moment to remember the the fresh-faced youth and modernity he brought into his designs for Dior—and nowhere is that more evident than on the red carpet. Starting with Dior girl Jennifer Lawrence, who won her first Oscar wearing a mega couture ball gown (and famously recovered with aplomb after tripping on it on the way up the stage), more and more, stars are choosing Dior for their big red carpet moments—and winning the fashion game. From Lupta Nyong'o at the British Academy Film Awards, to Rihanna at the Dior show in Paris earlier this month, here are our 15 fave red carpet moments:

Major designer news out of Paris today. After 3 and a half years as creative director of Dior, designer Raf Simons is exiting the fashion house.
According to a statement, Simons said: "It is after careful and long consideration that I have decided to leave my position as creative director of Christian Dior's women's collection. It is a decision based entirely and equally on my desire to focus on other interests in my life, including my own brand, and the passions that drive me outside my work. Christian Dior is an extraordinary company, and it has been an immense privilege to write a few pages of this magnificent book. I want to thank Mr. Bernard Arnault for the trust he has put in me, giving me the incredible opportunity to work at this beautiful house surrounded by the most amazing team one could ever dream of. I have also had the chance over the last few years to benefit from the leadership of Sidney Toledano. His thoughtful, heartfelt and inspired management will also remain as one of the most important experiences of my professional career."
In his time at one of the world's most prestigious fashion houses, Simons brought Dior to a modern era, while echoing Christian Dior's brand ethos celebrating women's natural beauty—a distinct change from Dior's previous designer, John Galliano, who was known for his controversial collections, including the spring 2000 couture collection inspired by the homeless.
There is no confirmation on a replacement for Simons, although WWD named Alber Elbaz of Lanvin and Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy as likely contenders for the coveted spot.
We'll keep you posted on the news as it happens.

In his time at one of the world's most prestigious fashion houses, the Belgian-born Simons, 47, brought Dior to a modern era, while echoing Christian Dior's brand ethos celebrating women's natural combined with scene-stealing drama. Simons take on Dior was a breath of fresh air and a distinct change from the previous designer, John Galliano, who was known for his controversial collections (including the spring 2000 couture collection inspired by the homeless). Galliano was famously ousted from Dior in 2011, after making anti-Semitic remarks, of which he was convicted of public insult. He's now the designer at Martin Margiela.
Dior sales thrived under Simons' creative tutelage, with must-have accessories, such as the embellished sneaker slides from Spring 2015 to the leather-latex boots, which were plastered in every major magazine this fall. According toThe Cut, revenues at Christian Dior Couture were up 18 percent, to $1.94 billion for the most recent fiscal year. The same article quoted Toledo as saying that Dior's sales increased by 60 percent, since 2011. Simons also brought the A-list celebs celebs back to Dior with his romantic-yet-modern designs, most notably tapping Rihanna to star in the brand's newest campaign.

All the numbers have been counted from Paris Fashion Week, and the social media powers that be can confirm: Kendall Jenner had the most-liked Instagram picture of all. Her black-and-white snap of a snap shows the actress in a classic photo both strip, posing with a sexy pout and a pair of bunny ears. The post has 1.2 million likes, besting second-place finisher Cara Delevingne by a rough 100,000. Cara's on-the-go image is of her exiting the Chanel show (1.1 million hearts), but can't actually claim official runner-up status: Kendall had another pic that reached the same approximate amount of likes.
The numbers are clearly huge, but neither come close to Kendall's epic shot of her hair arranged into romantic heart-forming tendrils. That picture has become Instagram's most-liked image ever, currently sitting pretty with 3.1 million likes. The remainder of the top five is filled out by Taylor Swift, Kim Kardashian, and Kylie Jenner.
