Elizabeth Banks and Diane Kruger Score Fashion Home Runs

Elizabeth Banks graced the 2014 Vanity Fair Oscar Party with her fabulous presence. The 40-year-old actress dazzled in blue at the star-studded event, which was attended by some of Hollywood’s most stylish celebrities, such as Kate Hudson, Emma Roberts, Anne Hathaway, Kate Beckinsale, Jennifer Lawrence, Naomi Watts, and Selena Gomez. She gamely posed for photographs and was spotted catching up with friend and Arrested Development actor Will Arnett.

The Catching Fire star’s sartorial choices are always bold and totally unexpected, and her red carpet looks, in particular, are always fresh and interesting. This time, she chose a two-piece outfit from Jenny Packham’s fall 2014 collection, and the result is a fun-and-flirty look that is perfect for a cocktail party. She wore a sequined cashmere crop top and paired it with a wool crepe knee-length skirt embellished with sequins and feathers. Both pieces were in gorgeous shades of blue and complemented her studded minaudi re from Jimmy Choo. She finished off her look with jewels from Graziela Gems and a pair of metallic pumps from Casadei.

Diane Kruger was another stunner at the 2014 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, which was hosted by Graydon Carter. She was joined by her longtime beau, Joshua Jackson, who looked positively handsome in his deep burgundy suit from Berluti.

One of the best things about Diane is the fact that she doesn’t work with any stylist. She knows what she wants, and she always manages to look flawless in outfits that we can only dream of pulling off. At the star-studded bash, Diane looked beautiful in a lace dress from Valentino’s spring 2014 haute couture collection. The gown features a high neck, cape sleeves, sheer Chantilly lace, and a layered skirt. Her hair was styled in an intricate braided updo, which added a youthful charm to her dramatic look.

She put the finishing touches to her outfit with blush pink lips, a stunning diamond bracelet, a black embroidered clutch, and a pair of black heels from Christian Louboutin.

Trader Joe’s chocolate lava cakes

Hope you’re having a wonderful holiday! Looking forward to sharing photos of our trip (and hearing about yours), but first up: My dad made dinner on Christmas Eve, and afterward, he busted out individual chocolate lava cakes for everyone. His secret? Trader Joe’s! You buy them frozen and then just heat them up in the microwave. They were insanely good.

Have you ever tried them?

P.S. My other favorite Trader Joe’s dessert, and an ode to Trader Joe’s.
