Hollywood royalty stepped into the limelight at ELLE’s 17th Women in Hollywood Tribute, which honored the likes of Jodie Foster, Diane Keaton, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson, Sofia Coppola, Hilary Swank, Kerry Washington, Diane Kruger, and Jessica Chastain. Held on October 18 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, the crowning event was hosted by Adam Shankman and attended by a bevy of A-list celebrities.
As always, Diane Kruger looked effortlessly stunning at the evening’s event. Opting for a short melon colored Calvin Klein dress with a sexy racer-back design, Kruger celebrated her recognition with pals Kate Hudson, Kerry Washington and Hilary Swank. Kruger completed her look with a Jimmy Choo “Lexie” clutch, a twisted classic bun, and suede sandals with five-inch heels. But with the dress’s powerhouse color and Kruger’s fierce style, these gold python Kate Spade Glenda Roccia open-toed sling backs would have truly fired up the look.
Adding a splash of color to the event, the ever-elegant Gwyneth Paltrow made her presence on the gray carpet known in killer Calvin Klein number. One of the best-dressed actresses in Hollywood— possibly in the universe— Paltrow dons a one-of-a-kind carved Allison Joy ring by Dana Rebecca Designs with yellow gold and cognac quartz and a pair of ankle-strap stilettos to complete her ensemble. However, these Orange Snake Vaneli for Jildor Polly sling-back pumps look like they were created with this exact outfit in mind.
Hilary Swank wore a Calvin Klein bustier dress in gold that showcased her toned figure for the evening’s festivities. She complemented her outfit with a Judith Leiber clutch, jewelry by David Yurman, and burgundy Christian Louboutin strappy sandals. But to transform this honoree’s look, we would have opted for Red Glazed Croc Stuart Weitzman Lovechains -embrossed pumps. The gold tone chain with elastic mounts and the red hue would bring her whole look full-circle.
