Drew! Jennifer! Hollywood Goes Ultra-Glam for Versace

02/09/2007 at 01:30 PM ET

When Donatella Versace invites you to a party, you don’t say no — and you definitely say yes to borrowing one of her house’s super-sexy gowns. At the Rodeo Drive Walk of Style Award honoring Donatella and her late brother Gianni Versace, A-listers turned out looking so good, that we can’t help but wonder if it’s even possible to look bad in Versace? (Oscar nominees and presenters, take note!) Drew Barrymore left her hippie vibe at home for sleek, straight hair and a stone-encrusted gown, while the better-than-ever Jennifer Lopez played the part of the smoldering siren to a hilt — even Sharon Stone, who has made more than one questionable fashion choice recently, looked flawless. Other attendees looking jaw-droppingly beautiful included Eva Longoria in ice-blue, Mischa Barton in a daring hemline, Jada Pinkett Smith and Demi Moore in second-skin black satin, and so many more in a truly star-studded evening. As they say, only in Hollywood. . .

I don’t know about the other two but Drew looks like a Sex Goddess in that beautiful dress!! Go Drew!!

Amy on

Drew’s Break-up has done her well! She looks so slim, healthy and glowing like a happy woman.
Jlo always looks great.
Sharon stone actually looks classy and pretty for once!

Alice on

Wow, look at Drew. She looks so glamorous.

Angel on

I agree. Drew is HOT! I couldn’t believe that was her. She look great. You go girl!

C on

All these ladies look lovely, except Mischa Barton. Her dress just looks silly.

Kristen Y on

They all look great!

adore04 on

BC on

Drew looks amazing!

krystal on

Mischa Barton??? Which one is she??? oh….thats bc she isnt there!! haha

jessie on

The one in the green looks like some ome from a hippie stoer that bought everything in it and mad that hidous dress and the other two there fine

what on

I think they all look great! Drew is gorgeous but, no offense, why did she have a breast reduction? I’ve known a lot of not skinny girls who got a breast reduction to look slimmer but they ended up getting too much removed. Drew looks a bit out of proportion, I think her body looked better the way it naturally was.

j on

hot mammas!!!! (NOT you misha, london is calling you back home. cya)

Krystal, there’s a picture of Mischa Barton in a link within the above article. Maybe you should actually read before you comment, not just look at the pictures.

Mary on

They all look fabulous!

I read somewhere a few years back that Drew had a breast reduction because her formerly larger chest was too heavy and giving her back problems. Sounds like a good justification to me, I wouldn’t want a huge rack.

amber on

WOW jennifer lopez looks amazing!

what on

Drew would look more proportioned if she left a little more boobage behind. Hourglass rather than pear shaped. She still look great though.

erica on

J.lo looks amazing alright…amazing sad. is that the madamme tussand j.lo?
does the woman smile anymore? space cadet alert

lily on

j.lo’s looks is predictable. she looks ok, but nothing, like WOW!! her looks have become less about the clothes, more about…look at me me me. I thought she dressed more interesting at the height of career. i’m just sick of her attitude.
she’s unbelievably shallow and annoying.

drew is the winner here. I love the pop of color and interesting neckline. She’s adorable.

jll on

it is amazing how versace dresses can change a normal woman to a goddess

shira on

Jennifer Lopez looks just plain mean. There is absolutely no inner beauty shining through; just the opposite of Drew, her face is glowing, she looks great.

Tayme on

The winner in my opinion goes to Drew Barrymore. I just love the color on her, she looks amazingly beautiful.

Jennifer Lopez’s dress is beautiful, and it suits her. She always look amazing. I just love her glow, and she seems so happy.

Normally I’m almost never liking Sharon Stone’s style, but I actually like this dress on her. She is beautiful for her age.

I couldn’t really tell if I liked Demi Moore’s dress or not. That really doesn’t matter, because she is ageless and gorgeous and look at her husband!

Mischa Barton, oh no, no, no, no. Her dress is awful. I think the dress is beautiful at the top and in the back, but how the dress cuts off as a mini dress in the front is tacky looking.

Roser on

Jlo looks so glamorous and amazing!

lizz on

Each dress fits and looks nice on each one of them. I think Drew looks the best though, her dress is very unique.

kaitlin on

Omg, They all look so hot & slim. Drew looks good and slim since her break-up. Jlo always looks hot. Sharon Stone looks especially thin tonight.

Courtney77 on

Jennifer Lopez looked STUNNING!!!
So did Tyra!

erica on

This is slightly off topic, but don’t you ladies wish you had a reason to wear some glam dresses like these? Celebrities are lucky in that sense. And even if there is a fancy occasion, do you ever notice that NO one ever dresses up. I sometimes want to put a dress and, and I do, but my husband tells me, “No one else is getting dressed”
usually everyone is in jeans. Why don’t people like dressing up? I am alone here ladies, what’s your take?
No dresses??
Not for parties, not for dinners, Not even for Easter!! What’s a girl to do? I have a good mind to start wearing all my dresses to the grocery store.

rachel b. on

Drew looks simply dazzling and perfect in that Versace honeydew melon shade.

rachel b. on

Drew rocks in honeydew!

nv. on

to the person who said jennifer’s looks have become less about the clothes and more about look at me me me.. well usually when you wear clothes.. you’re trying to get people to look at you and your style. so uh yeah.

heartofgold on

It amazes me how JLO still dresses better than most people…
Everyone should take fashion lessons from her.

Drew looks amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

night on

Aside from the seaweed growing around her neck Drew looks great. Jennifer looks stunning…as she used to before she married that creepy husband of hers…can’t wait for Jennifer to leave that man and find the old Jennifer who was so vibrant again. As for the last woman..the one in black, that can’t be Sharon Stone…this woman looks far to classy to be Sharon Stone…this must be a misprint.

rachel b. on

j.lo is sexy, sassy and flawless in that white Versace.

Nighthag on

I like 2 and 3 as they are very nice. Drew’s, I do like a little but I don’t like the algea looking thing around her neck. Sorry folks.

Alice on

I agree with Erica, I wish I had more opportunities to get all dresses up and feel glamorous.

beth on

Holy crap! I somehow missed this picture of Drew- she looks AMAZING!!

Charla Dickenson on

Hey Erica and Alice,

It’s a very good point Erica, I have often felt the same way. I think life should be celebrated. No wonder people get so bored, especially in the winter, in highschool we would have dances to look forward to. I think sometimes as adults we get so stuck in routines and we don’t let ourselves have enough healthy fun.

I love dressing up too. I would buy dresses when I didn’t have events to go to just becasue I love the dressy look so much. It’s true people don’t get gussied up enough. I say go to that party a little over dressed and maybe people will follow your lead in the future. If you stand out in your fancy garb that’s a good thing. I’d rather be over dressed than under dressed. If people tease you tease them back, a girl in a great dress/outfit will always win.

Here are some ideas:
-Throw a formal party at home
-Buy tickets to a charity ball or charity event.
-Create a charity ball or event
-Get some friends together and rent a hall/luxury hotel suite and have a party/event.
-Get all dressed up and get a friend/family member or photographer to take some pictures of you that you can frame and treasure.
-Have a romantic night with your equivalent other get all dressed up and have a candle lit dinner at home.
-Go to a fancy hotel for dinner all dressed up, they are so used to proms and weddings they don’t even notice.
-Shaperone a dance at a school
-Crash weddings and proms (joking, but it sounds fun)

My hubby and I do these things and really enjoy it, except the crashing of events(maybe someday). My husband and I are renewing our vows at home and getting all decked out in our wedding gear this summer. It will cost as much as a small cake and some flowers (we have decorations). We are going to take lots of pictures. It’s fun and romantic. I refuse to spend that much on a dress and wear it once. Some men aren’t too keen at first when it comes to dressing up but once they see how much it can spice things up and how grateful their woman will be they come around.

Anyway, I just wanted to share some ideas.
Best of luck ladies and take care!

P.S. I think if we can find opportunities to dress up we have it better than celebs. No offense but, I think many of them get sick of it or take it for granted it (so many awards shows and events). With all the camera’s and journalists, worst dressed lists, the award pressure and the whole networking and scmoozing thing ( a lot of them say it’s work for them).

Erin on

It’s so hard not to admire almost any Versace piece without having the same admiration as someone would have when visiting the mona lisa, and this event surely reinforced this delightful difficulty. When one is descibing fashion or a fashion event the sheer mention of Versace is enough said. You know that the designs are going to be unique and captivating with a simple elegence of an old black and white movie. When reviewing any fashion event or couture clad celebrity all you need to write is: Versace; enough said.
