Before the big show, the Oscars have a casual day.
It's hard to think of Monique Lhuillier as having a darker side, but there it was, though still playful and girlie.
Singer Carrie Underwood and "Pitch Perfect" star Anna Kendrick were among a slew of young celebrities who popped up at Rebecca Minkoff's show Friday during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. It was Underwood's second show of the day as she'd earlier made an appearance at Peter Som's show.
If you ever needed proof that designer Rebecca Minkoff is much loved by young women, you had only to look at the celebrities sprinkled in the audience at her runway show Friday.
Call it The "Bridesmaids" Effect: Ever since the R-rated 2011 comedy became a runaway hit, a rash of female-written comedies are enticing viewers with provocative new characters who are more like women we know.
Cheeky and snarky but with an infectious energy, "Pitch Perfect," a comedy set in the cutthroat world of competing college a cappella groups, makes us fall in love with the very thing it's making fun of.

"The scene where we kind of make out on the hood of a car, it all looks pretty sexy and cool and fun, but I would not recommend trying to do that," she said. "It is uncomfortable. My legs were covered in bruises the next day. So I hope that it looks really nice, but it was actually quite a painful experience."
But the reality wasn't quite that great, Kendrick said.
