Leighton Meester won big for her role in the soon-to-be-released Country Strong, and worked our favourite look of the night in a delicate ruffled Elie Saab dress and matching box clutch.

Working the stand-out hue of the season, Hilary Swank was ultra-glam in her one-shoulder Giorgio Armani Fall 2010, embellished scarlet mini.

Mia Wasikowska was dubbed Best Breakthrough Actress and had chosen a cute metallic Proenza Schouler dress for the occasion.

Seasoned star Jodie Foster proved she knows a thing or two about how to put together a winning red carpet look, and we love her elegant ability to layer tones of the same shade. Her jewel-coloured Dolce & Gabbana shift was the perfect fit, while her bouncy blowdry gave a polished finish.

Minnie Driver worked an LBD with a difference for the night of film festivities. She matched the strong-shouldered mini with jewel-embellished heels and statement earrings.

ELLE’s 17th Annual Women In Hollywood Tribute

Gwyneth Paltrow made tangerine really work for her in this jaw-dropping Calvin Klein  long-sleeved minidress. The style queen knew exactly how to keep it simple with such a bold colour, and pared-down hair and make-up to let the colour do all the work. Perfect!

She may be one of the youngest stars in Hollywood, but Emma Roberts is also one of the most stylish! She perfected party glamour at the Annual Women in Hollywood Tribute in this sheer embroidered mini, matched with a dazzling clutch and metallic heels.

Diane Kruger went pared-down perfection in this delicious coral hued Calvin Klein dress with simple silhouette. A glimmer of sparkle came from her pretty, jewelled bracelet and gold clutch.

Wowing in a sizzling black Calvin Klein wiggle dress with asymmetric sequin detailing, Kate Hudson showed off her style prowess at the Women in Hollywood Tribute. She teamed the gorgeous gown with a messy up-do and kept make-up and accessories low-key, with killer red nails adding a subtle nod to classic Hollywood glam.

Hilary Swank flattered her svelte figure with a pretty, jacquard corset dress, she finished her look with matching colour pop strappy heels and jewels and 40s-style waves.

Twilight actress Anna Kendricks was picture-perfect in this icy blue prom-style minidress. With a peekaboo plunging neckline, Anna let the dress do all the talking, opting for no accessories, loose locks and a pair of metallic pump heels.

Going 50s glam for the Women in Hollywood Tribute, American Pie star Alyson Hannigan channelled a Mad Men vibe working a deep red and purple silky striped calf-length gown.

Gossip Girl star Michelle Trachtenberg opted for a simple and girly evening look at the Annual Women in Hollywood Tribute in a plum-coloured ruffle-waisted mini.

Channing Tatum’s better half, Jenna Dewan, flaunted a sleeveless Calvin Klein shift dress at the fancy shindig.

Making a rare red carpet appearance, Jodie Foster was elegant in a simple LBD. An honoree at the event, Foster commented that it seemed quaint to celebrate women “when they really are half of what’s going on in the film business.” She added, “But you think about it, it’s women directors that are the last hurdle, and we haven’t jumped over that. Now we have women studio executives, we have women producers. And, for some reason, that hasn’t really translated into much gains for women (directors).”

Erika Christensen added black bow topped platforms and matching clutch to her purplicious Tadashi Shoji strapless number.

Michelle Monaghan looked pretty yet classy in her white Calvin Klein dress.
