Happy Friday, New York! It’s the final day of my internship at the Cut, and therefore, my final Party Pics roundup. Throughout the summer, fashionable attendees stunned us at lavish Hamptons parties, brand celebration dinners, and NYFW events. Now, as we enter a new season, things are starting to calm down. Still, Dua Lipa, Julia Fox, and more stepped out this week to celebrate at events including a Chanel launch party, the New York Ballet Fall Fashion Gala, and the Taste of Asia benefit.

Best LBD: Dua Lipa

Okay, so this isn’t quite a little black dress, but Dua Lipa knew how to pull the color off, wearing this Versace gown with button details to the Clooney Foundation for Justice Albie Awards.

Best Dressed: Amal and George Clooney

In her beaded Atelier Versace gown at the Clooney Foundation for Justice Albie Awards, Amal Clooney looked straight out of the 1920s. Her husband looked dapper too.

I appreciate Julia Fox’s consistency when it comes to picking daring looks. Fox attended the New York Ballet 2022 Fall Fashion Gala wearing this dramatic metallic gown and sporting bleached eyebrows, because of course she did.

It’s fall, which means it’s time to start bringing out our favorite statement jackets. At the New York Ballet 2022 Fall Fashion Gala, Queen Latifah wore this emerald-green crystal-embellished number.

Best Accessory: Soo Joo Park

Most On-Theme: Lily Allen

Also in attendance at Chanel’s celebratory dinner, Lily Allen sported a heart-shaped Chanel bag, Chanel shoes, and a Chanel top and trousers. I can’t blame her for wearing the brand from head to toe.

Best Ready-to-Wear: Jessica Williams

Not all party outfits are created equal, but Jessica Williams managed to choose something both cool and comfortable for the “Entergalactic” Brunch to celebrate Black love. The puffed sleeves and lace detailing are fun, and her white sneakers make me want to wear the outfit asap.

Tye-Dye But Glam: Anitta

Who said tye-dye can’t be fancy? Anitta wore this multicolored ruffled gown to the Sotheby’s Impact Gala and paired it with a purple asymmetrical bag.

Best Duo: Kelly Ripa and Bethenny Frankel
