At the moment, it seems everything's coming up roses on the red carpet. I love the photo at top right from Thursday night's CW Network Young Hollywood Awards held in Santa Monica. Actress Crystal Reed, left, is wearing a cabbage rose jacquard sleeveless dress by Carolina Herrera , and her "Teen Wolf" costar Holland Roden is in an allover-rose and flower print shirt and pants ensemble by Ted Baker . Also on Thursday night, across town in West Hollywood at the Fox Summer All-Star Party, Diane Kruger wore a gorgeous rose and trellis digital print dress by the talented British fashion designer Mary Katrantzou.

Hugh Jackman stalked Tom Hooper; Eddie Redmayne sent in an audition on his iPhone. In fact, according to the British actor, all of Hollywood "leapt out of the musical theater closet" to try to land a part in Hooper's adaptation of "Les Miserables. " Such was the discussion at The Envelope Screening Series for Universal Pictures' musical "Les Miserables. " The discussion also included actresses Anne Hathaway and Amanda Seyfried. Jackman admitted that once the stalking ended and he landed the part, he did have a brief moment of, "Oh, wow, now I've got to do it. " But for Hooper, spending three hours with Jackman auditioning gave the director the confidence to eliminate most of the script's dialogue in exchange for a sung-through musical.

Blake Shelton, Nick Offerman, Jimmy Fallon and writer Chris Tartaro are ... "The Chickeneers. " Things got a little egg-centric on the "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" set Thursday when "The Voice" judge, "Parks & Rec" star, late-night host and TV writer performed their rendition of "Ho Hey!" by Grammy-nominated band the Lumineers. Dressed as chickens. Clucking their way through the whole song. No words, just clucks. Bock , bock and everything. The quartet was costumed as bright yellow fowl, a la Big Bird, and delivered a nearly straight-faced performance of the hit song in celebration of Easter this Sunday.

Art sometimes imitates life. And then again, life often imitates art. Just ask Oscar-winning actress Vanessa Redgrave and her husband, Franco Nero. In the new romantic comedy, "Letters to Juliet," the 73-year-old Redgrave plays a widow named Claire who had left the love of her life, Lorenzo (Nero), 50 years earlier when she was a student in Verona, Italy. Before she had left, Claire did what numerous women in love have done over the centuries, write a letter about her love affair to the Shakespearean heroine, Juliet, and tack it on the wall of the courtyard where the fictional character had lived.

Director/producer/writer Baz Luhrmann must be pretty proud of his latest offering, "The Great Gatsby," due out May 10. At least it looked that way Tuesday night in New York at Prada's cocktail reception kicking off the SoHo store's exhibit of the movie's costumes, designed by Luhrmann's wife, Oscar-winning costume designer Catherine Martin, in collaboration with fashion designer Miuccia Prada. One might say he embodied the phrase "busting his buttons" (as seen here). Some of the movie's stars -- Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire and Isla Fisher -- attended, as did Katy Perry, Florence Welch and Maggie Gyllenhaal.

Despite its epic title, writer-director-actor Mark Webber's sophomore filmmaking effort "The End of Love" (his first was 2008's "Explicit Ills") is an exceptionally intimate, human-scaled picture. It's also quite a special piece of work. Webber, known largely for his many indie film appearances ("For a Good Time, Call…," "The Hottest State"), stars in this poignant, semi-autobiographical tale of a recently widowed, underemployed actor, also named Mark, devoted to raising his energetic 2-year-old, Isaac (Webber's real-life son, Isaac Love)
