For years, people struggled to pronounce her name. But no more. L.A.'s Monique Lhuillier (loo-lee-ay) has become a force not only on the runway but the red carpet too. Her collection, presented Tuesday, was her most confident yet and her most refined. Inspired by the jewels of the maharajah, evening wear came in spicy shades of plum, olive, mustard, magenta and brown, embellished with semiprecious stones.

The Emmys red carpet was once considered the minor leagues, with big-name designers saving their most prized couture creations for film stars to wear at the Golden Globes and Academy Awards. But no more. This year's Emmy Awards saw TV stars wearing major fashion - even if it didn't always work. Julianne Moore wore a vivid yellow, long-sleeve, knitted cashmere top and silk ball skirt from Raf Simons' first couture collection for Christian Dior, shown in Paris in July. An insidery fashion choice to be sure, and a modern take on dressing up. But the color and silhouette didn't particularly flatter her. The under-the-sea theme has been big on the spring runways.

They call it the "nerd's ball," but the Washington correspondents' dinner on Saturday was anything but, with a dazzling array of Hollywood stars brightening things up. Katy Perry, Hayden Panettiere and Barbra Streisand mingled with grizzled journalism vets and talking heads. Sofia Vergara, for instance, was spotted laughing with Bill O'Reilly. Despite all the stars, Los Angeles Times fashion critic Booth Moore says that when it came to fashion, all eyes were on First Lady Michelle Obama, who was wearing a beaded black lace gown by Los Angeles designer Monique Lhuillier.

Rihanna was a showstopper on the red carpet at Chanel's haute couture show in Paris on Tuesday. She wore a long, slouchy cream-colored cardigan, unbuttoned down to there and up to here -- in fact, only three buttons right around the middle seemed to hold it together. She accessorized with ropes of pearls and a floral brooch. What she didn't wear was a bra, and it was possible to see a nipple ornament under the thin sweater fabric. [The Cut] Model Jourdan Dunn tweeted that she was dropped from Dior's haute couture show because her chest was too big for the clothes.
