We figured after seeing the parade of jaw-dropping gowns at the LACMA Art + Film Gala we’d have a Best Dressed winner in the bunch, and we were totally right (don’t mind us, just patting ourselves on the back). In fact, we’re not even sure we’d have a Top 10 list this week without the event, as it was responsible for six of the most loved looks.

Leading the pack with a 95% approval rating was Kate Beckinsale in a stunning strapless Gucci gown that made her look like an Old Hollywood siren (we love the embroidered waist detail!). Plus, as usual, her hair gave us serious mane envy. And Olivia Wilde trailed closely behind in a Gucci halter dress that put all other maternity wear to shame.

Our favorite gown of the week rounded out the Top 10: Kate Hudson’s insane Gucci gown — actually, is it even considered a gown if it’s more of a blush skirt with two tiny strips of silver fabric? Regardless, she looked unreal, and we’d like to award her with an honorary Best Dressed title.

Which Kate did you prefer: Beckinsale or Hudson? Or do you think the title should go to someone totally different. Share your thoughts below!

In our weekly roundup of the looks that are gaining fashion ground (and the ones losing their style street cred), we pegged the hottest accessory on the carpet (and not it’s not an accessory at all!), plus, the hairstyle taking over Hollywood and a shade of lipstick that needs to take five.

Up: Pixie cuts. We’ve come down with a bad case of celebrity hair exhaustion from writing about all the dramatic cuts that have been happening. Probably the most shocking: Jennifer Lawrence said goodbye to her shoulder-length do (in her own words, “My hair couldn’t get any uglier”) for a classic side-swept pixie crop. And J.Law is not alone. Pamela Anderson, Kristin Chenoweth and Jennifer Hudson have also lopped off their long strands for super-short styles. Short hair is where it’s at, y’all.

Olivia Wilde may have a lot on her plate these days (and she can add “expecting a baby” to her long to-do list) but she still makes time for the things that are really important to her — for instance, by bring attention to initiatives that will help women in impoverished countries.

And she’s doing it in an accessible way, by partnering with close friend Barbara Burchfield to create Conscious Commerce, a site that highlights cool products you’d actually want, that are created ethically and give back. And on that list is Yoana Baraschi’s “New Light” dress, which you may have seen Wilde wearing earlier this year, and which you can now purchase (with some proceeds going to New Light India) at Anthropolgie as part of the designer’s 10th anniversary collection for the store. Wilde and Burchfield explain the collaboration in the video below:

Braids have been white hot since the start of 2013, and the girlie hair trend shows no sign of slowing down. And just when we think we’ve said everything there is to say about plaits, along comes another one that’s worth a closer look.

This week alone, three A-listers stepped out with discussion-worthy locks with a high degree of difficulty (and a big payoff). Warning: These were done by professionals. Do not try at home without supervision. But if you do and nail it, we’re definitely going to need you to tweet us a photo @StyleWatchMag.

Here comes the bride, all dressed in white — but wait, that hot brunet guy isn’t love Jason Sudeikis by her side!

Luckily, Olivia Wilde‘s funnyman fiancé can rest easy. Wilde’s just playing dress-up for her latest gig as the face of Avon’s “Today. Tomorrow. Always” fragrance collection. Check out the behind-the-scenes video:

Following in the footsteps of another sultry brunette, the star goes from serene to smokin’ in ads for Avon’s “Today. Tomorrow. Always” fragrances. And in another video capturing moments from the sexy shoot (below), the star says the ads give off “a tone of bliss” (and then she mentions all the passion on set — luckily, we doubt Sudeikis is the jealous type).
