“She wears what she wants to wear,” says a glowing Katie Holmes about her adorable fashionista daughter Suri. “She just loves sparkly things and she loves bright colors and you know she has an idea of what she wants to wear everyday and so do I, so we go with it.”

Katie herself looked lovely in sheer black Alaia. She was honored last night by Elle Magazine, which named her a Hollywood Icon for it’s 16th Annual Women in Hollywood issue.

“I feel lucky to be a woman in Hollywood and to have had the experiences that I’ve had and I’ve been able to work with the people that I work with and you know it’s, it’s exciting and a lot of these women have chosen roles that have paved the way for others and, and it’s wonderful to celebrate that so I’m really happy to be here,” Katie said.

Renee Zellweger, Julianne Moore, Emily Blunt and Robin Wright Penn were also named Hollywood Icons. Julie Andrews was named Hollywood Legend and is one of the stars Renee is inspired by and she laughed and said she had her “fingers crossed she wouldn’t fall down or say dumb things.” Renee looked elegant in a short red strapless silk Carolina Herrera gown but wore considerably less when she posed in a bathing suit in the new issue of Elle.

“Yeah, yeah that was a day,” she said, but added, “Everything’s covered, everything’s covered!”

More fierce females… more fierce fashions in New York at the Whitney Gala event last night, co-chaired by Donatella Versace. Naturally, all the stars wore the designer’s sexy creations.

Jennifer Hudson, in a floaty pink chiffon gown with embellished detail, posed with Donatella on the carpet and the singer clearly loves being a new mom to two-month-old son, David.

“Every moment I can take in, I do my best to take it in. I don’t care if it’s the wee hours of the night, early morning. It doesn’t matter I’m half asleep, I’m like aaaah this is my baby.”

Lindsay Lohan in a short strapless gold dress stumbled on the red carpet, but luckily did not fall. Mischa Barton wore a dark blue silk jersey gown and ‘Gossip Girl’s’ Taylor Momsen doing her best blonde version of Morticia with her long hair, dark eye makeup and flowing taupe chiffon gown with metal detailing. She gave us a hint about the much hyped threesome storyline on ‘GG’. “Safely, I can say I’m not involved in the threesome. Not to say my family’s not.” OMG!
