Joining her on the red carpet was Victoria Beckham, who took her style tips from the boys. While seasoned designer Victoria handled the red carpet with ease in a simple yet elegant jumpsuit spiced with a dazzling display of diamonds, courtesy of Chopard.
Blake Lively defied all the red carpet rules in a red jumpsuit as she posed alongside co-star Kristen Stewart.
The former Gossip Girl actress, who’s currently pregnant with her second child with hubby Ryan Reynolds, will no doubt be excited to see the finished Woody Allen film, in which she stars with the Twilight actress.
As the pair joked around together on the red carpet, Kristen showed off her curves in a fitted white skirt and gave fans a glimpse of her toned abs in a white crop top.
The ever, stylish Blake managed a quick outfit change before she arrived for the evening viewing, giving us another sequinned gown to swoon over.
The pregnant star revealed her growing bump in the figure-hugging dress and added to the old-school glamour with loose waves.

Keeping it simple in all-black were Victoria’s Secret models Lily Donaldson and Doutzen Kroes who both flaunted their slender physiques in plunging gowns.
Both of the gorgeous blondes oozed sex appeal – with Lily vamping up her look with dark plum lipstick and Doutzen flashing some skin with a thigh-high split.
Julianne Moore followed in their lead in a curve-hugging dress, which featured sheer panelling and cobras embroidered in sequins. Talk about bad-ass.

Elsewhere there was a flurry of colour – with yellow a firm favourite for the night as Pitch Perfect star Anna Kendrick and Jessica Chastain both stepped out in it. While Anna teamed her eye-catching gown with a slick of red lipstick, Jessica kept things au-naturel – instead letting her plunging neckline and jewelled necklace do the talking.
For Anna Kendrick yellow is the color
In true red carpet style, there were also a few dresses that made an impression for all the wrong reasons, such as the ruffled pink gown from Thai actress Araya A. Hargate – it looks impossible to sit down in. Italian model Bianca Balti followed in a similar ensemble, which included trailing blue ruffles and black lace.
