See the Spectacular Looks and Jewels from Tiffany & Co.’s Blue Book Collection Gala

Has anyone truly ever looked like a million bucks?

Ask Ruth Negga, who hit the gray carpet in a fantastically ornate leopard-print Gucci dress that she paired with—get this—$2.2 million-worth of Tiffany & Co. diamonds. The occasion? The 2017 unveiling of the brand’s Blue Book Collection, hosted by Chairman Michael Kowalski inside St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn.

Negga’s Gucci number reminded us of her fearlessness when it comes to fashion, but those jewels though! The diamond rings were indeed gorgeous, however, you have to take a closer look at the $1.1 million choker she wore. It was the perfect cherry on top of her Best Dressed-worthy outfit. Citing stylist Karla Welch as her secret weapon, Negga told us all about her love for experimenting with clothing.

“If people don’t like it, well, that’s their problem. I don’t wear clothes because I want to piss someone off or anything, I wear it because I think it’s beautiful,” she told InStyle. “Everyone has the right to look beautiful, whatever body shape or however you look. It’s very important that we’re all involved, because it is an art form. I firmly believe that.”

We also spotted the artful jewels on Haley Bennett, who paired her Cinderella-like J. Mendel gown with $700,000 in Tiffany diamonds. Don’t think she’s used to it, though. “I’ve never opened my own Tiffany Blue box. My mother had a few pieces and I always looked up to her. When she was wearing them, I observed that she was more confident,” she told us. “Hopefully she’ll pass those pieces down to me. That would be special.”

For Reese Witherspoon, the evening conjured memories of that final Big Little Lies episode in which her character, Madeline, dresses up as Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s for a party. “I think it’s extraordinarily chic and I love that she has on big eyelashes at 6 a.m., a full face of makeup at 6 o’clock in the morning,” she told us, explaining how much she loves that iconic sleep mask with the white shirtdress.

Jennifer Hudson‘s sexy and yellow ruffled DSquared2 piece caused a commotion on the carpet (“Yes Jennifer! More Jennifer! This way Jennifer!” photographers screamed), while Claire Danes kept it classic in black velvet Monse, which, naturally, required a $525,000 Tiffany necklace. Danes later told us all about the jewel that’s near and dear to her heart. “My husband gave me a watch that’s kind of chunky,” she told us. “I lost it for a while and it reappeared. Jewelry does that. It goes away and then it comes back. It has its own power and I’ve been enjoying its reemergence.”

Let’s just hope Negga didn’t let go of that $1.1 million stunner.

We Tried The $7 Foundation With a 25,000 Person Wait List

Canadian-based skincare brand The Ordinary is well, anything but ordinary. Its line of no-frills skincare products has earned a loyal following for their simple formulas of clinical-grade ingredients that are void of additives and fragrances. And at $15 or less, they’re cheaper than the sad desk salad you bought for lunch.

If you haven’t heard of the brand yet, that’s all about to change. The Ordinary is expanding into cosmetics with two new foundations that the Internet is currently freaking out over. The Serum and Coverage Foundations have just solidified The Ordinary’s beauty cult-status by racking up a wait list of over 25,000 people ahead of their end-of-April launch.

The Serum Foundation lives up to its name with a serum-like texture that’s lightweight but can be built up for medium coverage. The Coverage Foundation is a pigment-rich, non-oily cream that offers more coverage without getting cakey. Both options are enriched with a special pigment suspension technology that helps the foundations go on smooth with a highly saturated effect. To put it plainly: they’ll melt into skin like butter, but still give you the amount of coverage you’re after.

What’s also impressive is the foundations’ diverse 21 shade range. The Ordinary has made it simple to find the best one for your complexion by denoting each color with a Y, N, or P, according to skin undertones. And the foundations’ SPF is unique, too. It’s mineral-based so it’s free harsh chemicals that are typically found in common sunscreen formulas. Oh, and did we mention that ringing in at $7 each these foundations also super-affordable like the rest of The Ordinary’s products? We’re beginning to understand their draw.

Summer Shorts You Can Actually Wear to the Office 

When the heat is sweltering and the mere thought of wearing another sundress or skirt looms over you, reach for your favorite pair of shorts and throw on a blouse, maybe even a kitten heel or ballet flat to top off your look. The key here is to keep the shorts just long enough to avoid any dress code issues and look like you are about to hit the night club. Think easy, casual, and classic. A denim shirt or shirt lace top are always a great idea when putting together your shorts look.

The 10 MTV Reality Shows We Miss the Most

The 2000s were a special time for MTV’s reality television division. While we watched music videos in the morning and new episodes of Laguna Beach and The Hills at night, the true power hours came during the afternoon into the evening when the network’s programming shifted to airing a specific brand of reality television shows.

Shows like Date My Mom, Next, and Pimp My Ride filled the time slots between The Real World, Road Rules, and as much as we wanted to look away, we simply couldn’t. This was mindless television at its height.

The 5 Children’s Books Jennifer Garner Loves

As a mom of three, Jennifer Garner has certainly read her fair share of bedtime stories. And to say that she’s picked up a few favorites along the way would be quite the understatement. “Gosh, kids’ books are my favorite literature,” the actress told InStyle during an interview for our May issue. “I basically like anything that’s written for thirteen and under!”

Thanks to her volunteer work with Save the Children’s early education programs, Garner frequently gets to flex her storytelling muscles. “I visit schools all over the country to read to students, and I love it so much,” she said. “I’ll read anything, really, but if I’m reading to young kids, I like to choose something with rhymes. They’re really the building blocks of language and really allow children to hold onto one word as they connect it to the next.”

While it’s tricky for Garner to narrow down her top tales (“I could go on and on,” she said), there are a few fables that have stood the test of time. “You can never go wrong with anything by Julia Donaldson or Dr. Seuss, and I love reading Is Your Mama a Llama? to younger kids in school,” she said. “But the most fun I’ve had recently was reading Matilda to my daughter’s second-grade class.”
