Sandra Bullock has an adorable Minions character and now her very own Minions shoes, custom-made by Rupert Sanderson. The gimmicky heels picked up the yellow in her elegant Roksanda Ilincic dress at the film’s LA premiere.

Emilia Clarke wore this geometric-print Rosie Assoulin gown to the Hollywood premiere of Terminator: Genisys. The full, structured skirt is perfect for promoting a big summer blockbuster, though she could have done something more glamorous with her hair.
