Meanwhile, at Marquee nightclub in Sin City’s swanky new Cosmopolitan hotel, former “City” star Whitney Port arrived for the Jay-Z/Coldplay New Year’s Eve concert in a fashion-forward Jill Stuart frock, statement necklace, and strappy stilettos.

Also spotted sporting a similar shade … Taraji P. Henson (“Hustle & Flow”), who rocked a $215 ruffled Elizabeth and James micro mini and $800 gold Yves St. Laurent sandals.

2010 was the year we wanted everything in Drew Barrymore’s wardrobe, but now it seems 2011 is shaping up to be even better! Barely out of the style spotlight, the actress has stormed into the new year working a fashion-forward zingy orange gown from Jil Sander’s lust-some SS11 collection. And sticking to the rules of colour, Drew let the dress do all the work, with a simple black Hunting Season clutch and loose, fuss-free, dip-dyed locks completing the look.

Spike TV’s Scream 2010 Awards

“Scream” queen Neve Campbell  — who lives in London and hasn’t been spotted at a star-studded event in years — made a triumphant return to the spotlight in a sparkling mini and strappy heels at Scream 2010, Spike TV’s annual award show which honors the best in horror, sci-fi, and fantasy.

Neve’s heir apparent, Emma Roberts  — who portrays Sidney Prescott’s cousin, Jill, in “Scream 4” — showed off her gorgeous gams in a one-shoulder, lace-adorned mini and sky-high platform peep-toes.

She didn’t strut her stuff on the red carpet, but that didn’t stop Halle Berry from looking like a million bucks on stage in a gold paillette-covered stunner, hoop earrings, and 6-inch heels.

Like Halle, “Twilight” star Kristen Stewart  didn’t walk the arrivals line, which was unfortunate because she looked better than ever upon accepting the Best Fantasy Actress trophy in an asymmetrical mini and patent leather pumps.

Kelly Osbourne — who’s been looking fit and fabulous as of late — derailed her return to the best-dressed list in a mismatched ensemble, heavy makeup, and obvious hair extensions.

In addition to A-listers Halle Berry and Kristen Stewart, Megan Fox  didn’t bother with the red carpet. She did, however, appear at Scream 2010 (in an unflattering peach mess of a dress) to hand out the award for Best Villain.

Newly weds Anna Paquin & Stephen Moyer made for a cute red carpet couple. Anna dressed to impress in a chic yet sophisticated frock, fresh coif, and black platform pumps.

Lucky Blake Lively was the first celeb to sport this greige parachute dress from Lanvin’s spring/summer collection that debuted on the runway just two weeks ago. The Green Lantern star matched the tan leather harness on her dress with killer platform sandals and a smattering of studded jewellery.

Nobody rocks a little black dress like “Vampire Diaries” diva Nina Dobrev, who looked divine in her slinky shift and chain-adorned heels.

The Twilight saga was the talk of the night, swiping six awards and Nikki Reed  looked more than pleased to be there to share in the glory. She was red carpet-ready in a puffball one-shouder mini, finished with a simple up-do and metallic strappy heels.

Kristen Stewart : Welcome To The Screening !

Kristen Stewart (in Valentino and Brian Atwood heels) looks ravishing at The Cinema Society & Everlon Diamond Knot Collection’s screening of Welcome To The Rileys on Monday (October 18) in New York City.

The 20-year-old Twilight actress had to take pole dancing lessons for her role in the movie. “I did two weeks of it. … I did learn how to do it and I got bruises all over my legs. It’s hard, but it actually doesn’t look painful, but it is. It kinda beats you up,” she told ET.

“This is something that any girl can relate to: if you love yourself and you respect yourself, that’s the only way anybody else is going to,” Kristen said of the movie.

Eclipse Midnight : Break Records!!!

EclipseThe Twilight Saga: Eclipse has just been released in record-breaking theaters. And it was first shown to the huge public last Wednesday at exactly 12:01 AM in more than 4,000 theaters and the film made a brand new record, breaking that of another Twilight movie.

Eclipse has first broken the record set by Iron Man 2 last May for having the widest theatrical release in North America. Now, it seems like nothing is going to stop Eclipse from breaking other records. And broke them it did. It has now surpoassed the midnight-release gross of The Twilight Saga: New Moon last November. Just about eight months ago, New Moon broke the crushed the record of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince; New Moon earned $26.3 million after the midnight screenings in 3,514 theaters, while Harry Potter took home $22.2 million. Then Eclipse came and surpassed the record of New Moon with an estimated $30 million, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Eclipse then eclipsed the record of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen for being the highest grossing IMAX midnight screening, which was also set last year. Eclipse was shown in 192 IMAX theaters and earned about $30 million, exceeding the second Transformers movie’s $959,000. The third installment of the Twilight series is the first to be shown in IMAX among the movie franchise. The ticket prices in IMAX iare higher compared to those of regular theaters.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse is directed by David Slade, who is best known for making music videos for Tori Amos, Stone Temple Pilots, and Muse. His film credits include Hard Candy and 30 Days of Night. The screenplay is written by Melissa Rosenberg, who was also the scriptwriter of Twilight and New Moon. The Twilight series is based on the popular novel series of American author Stephenie Meyer. The movie stars Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner,
