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.

"I've worn Rebecca for a really long time," said Kendrick, star of "Pitch Perfect." ''She does such beautiful shapes. They're all kind of edgy, you know? But she (also) does these kind of feminine shapes. I'm wearing this kind of feminine dress, but there is a tough bag and a tough shoe, you know?"
