From sexy leather getups to glitzy glam gowns, this week stars overdosed on a whole lot of black and white! Check out’s top five best-dressed celebs of the week to see who worked the red (and black and blue) carpets best.

5. Amber Heard

Dressed for the weather, actress Amber Heard stole the spotlight in a shimmering floor-length long-sleeve gown and sky-high nude pumps at the London Premiere of her new flick The Rum Diary on Thursday. Her hair and makeup are both practically flawless!

4. Rosie Huntington Whiteley

Victoria’s Secret Model and hot Transformers star Rosie Huntington Whiteley cranked up the sex appeal at a book party for Christian Louboutin in Beverly Hills on Thursday. The sexy model/actress stepped out in a pair of skin-tight black leather pants paired with a vintage-style blouse, clutch and pointy toe heels. Ah, is Rosie ever NOT impeccably dressed?

3. Kristin Cavallari

Another lady in leather! Kristin Cavallari showed off her long, lean stems in a flirty, pleated leather mini by Alice + Olivia at the launch of Super Mario 3D Land in Hollywood on Thursday. We love the actress’ barely-there makeup and that cute, messy side fishtail braid she’s rocking. Totally understated but fiercely fabulous.

2. Naomi Watts

Actress Naomi Watts went all out glam in a sequined Stella McCartney wrap dress and long necklace at the premiere of her new flick “J. Edgar” at AFI Fest in LA on Thursday. Soft, sexy waves and a bright red pout complete her red carpet ready ensemble.

1. Nikki Reed

Newlywed Nikki Reed looked absolutely angelic in a plunging v-neck white gown by Maria Lucia Hohan at the Rome International Film Festival on Sunday. The actress kept her hair and makeup simple and topped off her look with a pair of Jimmy Choo heels. We only wish we had a close-up of that huge rock she’s sporting!

Almost a month ago we released sneak peeks of Leonardo DiCaprio in “J. Edgar,” one of the films most certainly being considered as an Oscar contender for the upcoming Awards Season race.

Well, now we know who’ll be among the first to see the film. Today’s announcement by the American Film Institute revealed that the 25th edition of its Los Angeles festival will welcome “J. Edgar” as its opening night film, a world premiere at Grauman’s Chinese Theater certain to attract director Clint Eastwood, star Leonardo DiCaprio, and more than a handful of the film’s other cast mates (such as Naomi Watts, Dame Judi Dench, Josh Lucas, Dermot Mulroney and Armie Hammer), as well as the film’s writer, Oscar-winner for “Milk,” Dustin Lance Black.

The AFI Fest 2011 presented by Audi will take place in Hollywood from November 3-10. To keep up to date with the films being shown, and the festival’s schedule, check the official site at
