As if we needed any more reason to believe in the power of celebrity: Tom Hanks has launched a new iPad app and it is currently ranked No. 1 on the iTunes store. The Hanx Writer app is a typewriter simulator, which imitates the analog typing experience. The inspiration? Hanks said, “I wanted the sound of typing if nothing else…cause I find it’s like music that spurs along the creative urge.” The app even makes a chime sound when you reach the end of a line—how authentic.

Runway to Red Carpet: A Pop Art Ka-Pow! and an Erdem Hat Trick

-------

Tom Hanks and Rita WilsonOne designer won the hearts of red-carpet walkers this week, and that was Erdem Moralioglu. First up was Hailee Steinfeld, who arrived at a photo call for her new film, Ender’s Game, in Berlin on Sunday afternoon in a playful Erdem Resort ’14 frock layered with black lace and white floral appliqués. On Monday, Clémence Poésy donned a black Erdem dress adorned with floral appliqués and ostrich feathers, from his Fall ’13 runway, to the MIPCOM 2013 party in Cannes. And the following evening, Naomi Watts chose a fitted floral number from Erdem for the 2013 Take Home a Nude Benefit Art Auction in New York.

But other designers had a chance to shine in front of the step-and-repeats, too. On Wednesday night, Rita Wilson joined her husband, Tom Hanks, at the London premiere of his new film, Captain Phillips, in a black Fall ’13 Tom Ford dress with a Pop art ka-pow! motif. Nicole Kidman showed some skin in a black Prada halter gown at the Huading Image Awards in Macao, China, on Monday, where she was awarded the statue for Best Global Actress in Motion Pictures. The supersexy dress featured a keyhole cutout on the bodice, and spangly orange flowers that spilled out of the skirt’s side slit. In case anyone was wondering: She’s still got it.

Here, more of this week’s red-carpet highlights.

Valentino And More Behold The Great Buck Howard

-------

A magical crowd gathered at the Tribeca Grand Hotel Tuesday night for the Cinema Society’s screening of The Great Buck Howard, hosted by Brooks Brothers. The film, a story about a washed-up mentalist, played by John Malkovich, and his personal assistant, played by Colin Hanks, features Colin’s father, Tom, playing the Dad role onscreen. Tom and Colin bear a striking resemblance in looks, mannerisms, and style. “We both go for that 1960′s Secret Service kind of look,” said Colin, clad in Calvin Klein. Colin’s Broadway co-star Jane Fonda stopped by to show her support, as did Valentino, in town for the debut of his own cinematic moment, Valentino: The Last Emperor, playing next week at MoMA. “I’ve done a lot in my life. I can’t wait to see what everyone thinks of it,” said the designer, who mingled with his The Devil Wears Prada co-star Emily Blunt, who plays a sexy publicist in Buck Howard. The after-party at the Penthouse of the Soho Grand Hotel played host to a celebrity continuum that ran the gamut from R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe to Princess Alexandra of Greece. We chatted up the movie’s muse, real-life mentalist and TV star George Kresge, Jr., a.k.a. the Amazing Kreskin, who lamented the end of all the free clothes he used to get when he had his own show. When we pointed Fred Schneider of the B-52s in Kresge’s general direction, he exclaimed, “The Amazing Kreskin? Now that’s the kind of celebrity I want to meet!”

a taste of france, on the beach

-------

We consider ourselves connoisseurs when it comes to the business of French dining. Which is why we’re recommending Anisette, a sublime new brasserie in Santa Monica, as the closest you’ll get to Paris on the West Coast. If not for the wood paneling, stained mirrors, checkerboard tile floors, vintage fixtures, and the Edith Piaf soundtrack, then for its classic menu, which includes favorites such as côte de boeuf, French onion soup served with cave-aged Gruyère, a first-rate salade niçoise, and pommes frites served in a cone. Spotted there recently: Cindy Crawford, Rita Wilson, Tom Hanks, and Keanu Reeves. Although there’s no word on whether or not chef Alain Giraud emerged from the kitchen midway through the meal to recount naughty French jokes for them as he did for us and our table of girlfriends. Comedie française? Mais oui, cherie.
