Celebrity Shoe Spotting: “Elle” Magazine’s 20th Annual Women in Hollywood Celebration

Elle hosted its 20th Annual Women in Hollywood Celebration on Monday, October 21, at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills. 

It was a night of glamour as a number of Tinseltown’s finest women were invited to join the event. They stepped out in their impressive outfits, but the spotlight was focused on this year’s honorees — Reese Witherspoon, Melissa McCarthy, Marion Cotillard, Shailene Woodley, Nancy Meyers, Eva Marie Saint, and Naomie Harris — whose impact in the film industry were recognized.  

Most of the celebrities were seen wearing pieces by Calvin Klein, who was one of the evening’s sponsors. Let’s check out some of them below as well as other stunning stars that caught our eyes.

1. Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon was red hot in a strapless Calvin Klein dress that displayed her curves. Not being a risk-taker when it comes to outfit choices, she obviously kept everything simple by wearing minimal accessories and a pair of nude Manolo Blahnik heels. The actress still managed to look hot and turn heads anyway, which was also due to her fierce smoky eyes and messy but sexy updo.

2. Melissa McCarthy

Melissa McCarthy, who is one of Elle magazine’s November cover girls, made sure to look chic and in style in a monochrome ensemble. Perhaps she wanted to make up for her controversial cover photo? She did well by choosing a black leather top with black pants under a pretty black-and-white coat by none other than Calvin Klein. To finish her look, she wore a striking pair of Brian Atwood sandals that feature gold-tone conical studs on the t-straps. They also have about 6 inch leather-covered heels and 2 inch platforms that definitely added to her height.

3. Marion Cotillard

Marion Cotillard is one of the most gorgeous French actresses who we truly adore; however, we didn’t like her look during the event. She wore a Dior dress that did absolutely nothing to compliment her figure. Ironically, too, although the dress was too busy with prints, she still came across as kind of boring. Her saving grace was her Dior shoes, which we find interesting. They look modern, sporting a tricolor design with pointy capped toes, asymmetrical straps, ankle straps, and curved heels. They are not available online yet as they’re from the fashion house’s resort 2014 collection.

4. Naomie Harris

Naomie Harris has a beautifully toned physique, but for the Elle event, she picked a Calvin Klein fringed dress that was rather unflattering for her. Although it showed off her shoulders and a little side boob, she still looked shapeless in it. Anyway, this 37-year-old actress finished her look with a pair of simple black sandals with square toes. We’re guessing they’re from Calvin Klein, too, but we’re not really sure. Can you ID them?

5. Shailene Woodley

A short-haired Shailene Woodley turned up at the fete dressed in Calvin Klein spring 2014 from head to toe. Like Naomie, she unfortunately ended up in an unflattering dress that features geometric prints in muted shades. She looked a little boring despite the dress’ revealing cutout details at the sides. Her shoes, too, looked like a typical pair of sandals that grannies usually wear. This is definitely our least favorite look of the night.

6. Emilia Clarke

Emilia Clarke was spot-on as she arrived in a sheer Calvin Klein dress in nude, which complemented her Calvin Klein sandals. They’re from the label’s spring 2013 collection, and they feature striking sculpted column heels in a gold tone. 

Emilia seems younger than her age in the photos below, and we so love it.

7. Laura Dern

Like Emilia, Laura opted for a similar pair of Calvin Klein sandals. Hers were in black, and they feature textured leather and crisscross ankle straps. The sculpted heels seem to come in silver, which look very elegant. They also complemented her long black dress! This was perhaps a safe look. What do you think?

8. Lea Michele

Lea Michele once again showed off her sexy built. She wore a Calvin Klein dress that was just perfect on her. Although it’s quite simple, the cutouts definitely made her look sexy! It was actually a simple look that was completed with a simple pair of white sandals, but we’re just so fascinated by her and by her entire ensemble. 

By the way, her heels were similar to B Brian Atwood’s “Labrea” sandals, which we’ve seen in a pink and blue combination on Lauren Alaina back in June.

9. Lake Bell

Lake Bell, 34, looked fashion-forward in her Altuzarra fall 2013 dress, which features a long-sleeved draped top with an interesting zip detail at the skirt. Keeping the look minimal yet modern were her black-and-white suede pumps, which are by Gianvito Rossi.

10. Emmy Rossum

Emmy Rossum was a pretty lady in red at the event. Unlike Reese Witherspoon, who wore nude heels to provide contrast for her dress, Emmy opted to wear red all the way. She donned a red Elie Saab embroidered dress, carried a red purse, and completed her ensemble with a striking pair of red Christian Louboutin fall 2012 heels.

11. Zoey Deutch

18-year-old actress Zoey Deutch may have seemed older than her age in her plain Calvin Klein dress, but we do love that she proved to be capable of pulling off a sophisticated look! Her gold accessories definitely lifted her ensemble! Her sandals, too, were intriguing in a black and gold combination. Do you know where we can find them?

12. Ahna O’Reilly

We love the fresh look of Ahna O’Reilly here, thanks to her blue ensemble. She slipped into a tube dress that seemed painted! Her blue clutch also added sparkle to her overall appearance. We just don’t think her Bionda Castana shoes were the perfect pair for this outfit. They’re pretty, but they seem too heavy for her dress.
