To join Drew Barrymore and other A-list stars at the event on Sunday, Jennifer Aniston opted for an all-black ensemble. The actress wore a tuxedo blazer by Saint Laurent. The jacket featured sharp details, including padded shoulders, a single-breasted silhouette and satin-trimmed peak lapels. Aniston finished off her power suit look with tights and round-toe heels.
Drew Barrymore embraced daintiness and frills, arriving on the red carpet wearing Needle & Thread’s Primrose gown. The black lace dress had cutouts on her shoulders and a bowtie detail adorning her neck. Embroidered with black botanical designs, the gown featured a tiered skirt and was held together with a shiny black belt around her waist.
For the event, Idina Menzel looked to Lela Rose, wearing a piece from the designer’s pre-fall 2023 collection. The off-the-shoulder sweater dress featured brown and black stripes. Menzel was outfitted by Tara Swennen. Swennen has also put together looks for Shailene Woodley, Allison Janney and Sarah Michelle Gellar.
Jackie Sandler took on the Barbiecore trend to join others in supporting her husband, Adam Sandler, who received the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor at the event. Jackie’s Valentino power suit included a double-breasted jacket and straight-leg trousers. She coordinated her look with shiny, pointy-toe pink pumps.
