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. . .

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.

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.

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

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).

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.
