Last night was kind of stressful. Between Fashion’s Night Out, the DNC Obama speech and the MTV Video Music Awards there were not enough hours in the night to get it all done. So much TV to watch! So much shopping to do! Bad timing aside, the VMAs did deliver their usual round of well choreographed dance/lip syncing performances (um, I never thought I’d actually like a Taylor Swift song) and host/audience hijinks (Kevin Hart, such a tiny weirdo!). That said, what we really care about is the fashions. And there were so many! Let’s see what the stars wore, shall we?

Anyway, I’m thrilled to see the actress back in action, and I daresay she’s better than ever. Publicity rounds for “Bachelorette” alongside Lizzy Caplan and Isla Fisher have seen her through a series of show-stealing outfits, and I’m consistently impressed by her interesting beauty looks. (She may also know a thing or two about teabagging, but that is neither here nor there.) They’re always pretty, but she never goes for the traditional trappings — a matte red lip, as seen here, is classic, but her shimmery copper shadow turns the standard on its head for an effective unexpected edge.
