Charming, free-spirited and - above all - talented, Drew Barrymore has come a long way since her big-screen breakout in Steven Spielberg's beloved sci-fi blockbuster, E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial (1982). Despite a troubled and much-publicized adolescence during which she appeared in only a handful of films, Barrymore's star was officially on the rise during the mid-90s with notable appearances in Poison Ivy (1992), Bad Girls (1994/I), Boys on the Side (1995), Batman Forever (1995), Woody Allen's Everyone Says I Love You (1996) and Wes Craven's Scream (1996/I). Turns in The Wedding Singer (1998), Ever After (1998), Never Been Kissed (1999), Charlie's Angels (2000), Riding in Cars with Boys (2001) and Donnie Darko (2001) followed, proving to once-cynical audiences that Barrymore was not only a capable leading lady, but also a gifted and versatile actor. Recent projects have included 50 First Dates (2004), Fever Pitch (2005), Music and Lyrics (2007), Curtis Hanson's Lucky You (2007) and the forthcoming Grey Gardens (2009) (TV). Since early 2009, Drew Barrymore has appeared in print and television advertisements for Cover Girl cosmetics products. A survey from a Los Angeles marketing research firm of celebrity spokespeople had Drew ranked 3rd on their 'most wanted' list of female celebrity endorsers (trailing only Cindy Crawford and Halle Berry, and placing ahead of the likes of Catherine Zeta-Jones, Denise Richards, Katie Holmes and Heather Graham).

Drew Barrymore seen on May 11 2012 in New York, NY. Drew Barrymore was spotted out and about in NYC on the day of her engagement party to fiance Will Kopelman, May 11, while still remaining mum about the fact that she's pregnant. For her daytime ensemble, Drew wore a trendy pair of patterned jeans (get the look with AG Jeans' Stilt in Ikat Blue, or for a pair of jean shorts with a similar print, check out Sold Design Lab's Tie Dye Short in Navy) with a graphic t-shirt, and then topped everything off with a black blazer (like Elizabeth & James' Cate Blazer in Black). A pair of black sandals, Ray-Ban's New Wayfarer in Tortoise, and a bright red lip completed Drew's outfit. What's your take, everyone - and when do you think she'll finally make the (unsurprising) announcement that she's with child? In related news, E! Online recently posted shots of Drew trying on veils at Suzanne Couture Millinery in NYC, opting for versions with both her hair up and in a bun. According to E!, "Barrymore and Kopelman are planning to tie the knot at her home in Montecito, CA with the groom's family's longtime rabbi conducting the ceremony." I wonder what her dress will look like?
Drew Barrymore seen on Sep 18 2011 in West Hollywood, CA. Heading to Trousdale in West Hollywood for an Emmy's after-party on September 18, Drew Barrymore looked sleek and stylish in this colorful McQ dress. From there, DB accessorized with cool blue suede pumps, a Jack Vartanian bracelet, and The Dina Collection's black hoop earrings. I love that Drew's psychedelic dress is daring yet demure, and I'm really liking her high, glossy ponytail and new auburn hair color. What are your thoughts on Drew's partygoing look here, everyone? If you're inspired by her bold style here, check out other "look at me" dresses here on CoutureCandy, such as Kirribilla's Vera Dress in Print, Farah Khan's Diane Sequined Dress in Multi, or Voom by Joy Han's Maria Babydoll Dress in Black. A great pair of black pumps, like L.A.M.B.'s Prissy Pump in Black is always a chic addition to any 'fit. While it's no surprise that Drew is constantly busy with her successful career, it may come as a surprise to some of you to hear that Drew is a producer on the new show "Charlie's Angels." I had no idea! It does make sense, though, since DB starred in the successful film series alongside Cameron Diaz and Lucy Liu. Drew took to the stage with the newest angels, Minka Kelly, Annie Ilonzeh and Rachael Taylor, to present an award as this year's Jane Lynch-hosted Emmy's. Did any of you check out the premiere of the show? If so, did you like?
Drew Barrymore seen on Feb 26 2011 in Los Angeles, CA. Looking like a Bohemian princess, Drew Barrymore arrives at the Chanel & Charles Finch Pre-Oscar Dinner Celebrating Fashion & Film in a gorgeous billowing chiffon dress at Madeo Restaurant in Los Angeles on February 26. Drew was escorted to the event by her new boyfriend Will Kopelman, whose father is the former head of Chanel USA. Drew was absolutely glowing as she floated into the event, pairing her ultra feminine printed maxi (try Meghan Los Angeles' Apple Dress in Ivory) with a sparkly blazer (like Line's Sadie Button Cardigan in Caviar) and gold satin clutch (add some flair with Whiting & Davis' similarly shaped Leopard Big Ball Kisslock Bag in Leopard). Drew added a little edge with a black leather cuff (like Rocco e Dante Handbags' Jack Cuff in Black) and completed the look with an elegant gold necklace (love Kuo Ting's Gold Pebble Necklace in Gold). What do you think of Drew's dramatic look? I absolutely love her beachy ombre waves here, the laidback style is a perfect complement to her sophisticated frock. I wish the dress had a bit more shape to it, maybe a belt or lower neckline to break up the print? Drew has done a great job making a name for herself as an actress, model and producer in the wake of her troubled teenage years, and according to friends of Lindsay Lohan she's become an inspiration to get her career back on track, despite her current legal battles. A friend dished to Showbiz: "Lindsay sees Drew as her role model and she’s hoping she might convince her to work with her as a producer, director or actress. They have some mutual friends that Lindsay is hoping might help in some way. Drew understands what it’s like to grow up in the spotlight and suffer from not having a normal childhood so Lindsay is hoping she will take pity on her." I think she can keep dreaming, but what about you – does LiLo deserve a helping hand?
Drew Barrymore seen on Feb 23 2011 in Beverly Hills, CA. Looking very posh, Drew Barrymore and her new boyfriend Will Kopelman head out for a classy lunch at the trendy E. Baldi restaurant in Beverly Hills on February 23. Drew celebrated her 36th birthday the day before, and after being spotted out canoodling with her new man at Joan's on Third earlier this week I'm sure it was a happy one. Despite the chilly weather Drew dressed to impress the cool crowd in an ornate printed full skirt topped with a black cropped motorcycle jacket (try Tag Jeans' Mayfield Motorbike Jacket in Black over Meghan Los Angeles' Eden Dress in Grey Print), black stockings and a pair of laced booties. Drew layered up in a checked scarf (like Lucky Brand's Wind Curled Scarf in Black) and wore a fab fringed crossbody bag (check out Susan Farber's fierce Andorra in Dusty Gold) to complete her look. What do you think of Drew's daytime style, does it work for the occasion? At her side, Will was looking especially dapper in a black fitted jacket over a white button front with a striped tie (keep your man looking polished and comfortable in 7 Diamond's Berlin Jacket in Charcoal over Joes Jeans' Relaxed Fit Pinstripe Shirt in Black/White) with cuffed trousers and brown oxfords. What do you think of this new couple, do their styles complement each other? I'd have to say yes as they're both looking very put together here… almost too composed! For those of you wondering who Drew's new beau is, Will makes his living as an art consultant and happens to be the son of former Chanel CEO Arie Kopelman. The two were recently spotted at a Chanel dinner in LA, so it sounds like the relationship is offer to a great start – at least for Drew's wardrobe! A pal dished on their budding romance to the paps: “It’s a very new relationship and they’re taking things slowly. They’ve been getting to know each other a lot better these last few weeks.” Based on appearance alone, do you think this one is built to last? He's definitely putting Justin Long to shame in this tailored look!
Drew Barrymore seen on Jan 05 2011 in West Hollywood, CA. Making a splash in a glowing Jil Sander gown, Drew Barrymore arrives at CoverGirl's 50th Anniversary Celebration at Boa Steakhouse in West Hollywood on January 5. I have to say I love the bright orange shade against Drew's complexion, but I hate the way it drapes around her like a tangerine tent – so unflattering! To make this cheery shade work, try a more flattering silhouette like Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent's Classic Slip in Orange or Luc by Lucy's Cut Out Bella Dress in Coral. Drew paired her frock with elegant silver earrings (like Michele Michel's Seed Earrings in Silver) and a black and silver accented clutch (similar to Julie K Handbags' Natalie Sleek Clutch in Python Black). What do you think of her choice of accessories, is the black clutch too harsh? Drew is still rocking her ombre tresses, but she's toned down the Bohemian waves for a straightened look in the New Year, playing with color on her cheeks and pout. Are you a fan of the ombre appearance? I'm definitely having mixed feelings about everything going on here. At the CoverGirl event, the easy-breezy-beautiful alum welcomed the new face Taylor Swift to the brand, which she's been a spokeswoman for on and off for years. Despite the official People's Choice after party at the Conga Room, it seems like all the prettiest faces showed up for some delicious eats at Boa. Some of the famous ladies in the crowd included former model Niki Taylor, reality stars Kendra Wilkinson, Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port, and Real Housewives newcomer Kyle Richards. Lastly, Ellen Degeneres kept the mood light with wife Portia at her side, providing some entertainment while the ladies waited their turn to make funny faces in the CoverGirl Photo Booth. Sounds like quite the party! In light of the beauty theme, Drew chatted with E! Online about her stance on what makes people attractive: "Beauty is so within. I don't care if you're the most attractive person on the planet...if you're not good inside, it will show. You fall in love with people from the inside out." Wise words to live by!
Drew Barrymore seen on Sep 03 2010 in West Hollywood, CA. Taking her laidback style to the streets, Drew Barrymore heads out of her office in West Hollywood on September 3. While the rest of us are savoring the last few days of summer, Drew set forth in an autumn appropriate striped sweater (get cozy in Ella Moss' Tompson Cardigan in Navy) with loose fitting trousers (try Tag Jeans' Century City Trouser in Charcoal or Joe's Jeans' cropped Skinny Military Pant in Charcoal) and tan sandals (check out Farylrobin's Wilson in Taupe). Drew carried a taupe tote slung over her shoulder (I'm loving Rough Roses' Riley Messenger in Ash for fall), wearing her hair in loose waves as she went about her Hollywood business. What do you think of Drew's street style? Not quite as impressive as her sparkly night time look for her "Late Night" appearance earlier this week, but I still think her style is noticeably cleaned up from years past. With her new film Going The Distance in theatres, Drew has been reflecting on how her real life relates to the big screen in interviews: "My whole life has been long-distance relationships. I relate to it very much. It's hard, but it's what we really go through in life. … I don't want to be in far-fetched roles anymore. I don't want scenarios that I wouldn't go through as a human being in real life." Next on her path is a role as a Greenpeace volunteer in a drama called Everybody Loves Whales - wonder if this is a reflection of her stance on animal rights? We'll have to wait and see!
Drew Barrymore seen on Aug 25 2010 in New York, NY. Drew Barrymore stands tall in a sparkly top while greeting fans outside of the Ed Sullivan Theatre in NYC before heading inside to tape an appearance of The Late Show with David Letterman on August 24. Drew has been hot on the promotion trail over the past week, helping to spread the buzz about her new rom-com Going the Distance with on-and-off-again beau Justin Long. Drew definitely has her ups and downs in styling, but I'm loving her glam Boho chic looks she's been playing with lately. For this appearance she paired a sparkly Richard Chai evening sweatshirt (like Karen Zambo's Abba Sweatshirt in Grey) with belted Camilla and Marc pants (try Wish's Bullion Pant in Black with Julie K's Tess Belt in Black) and her trusty YSL grey suede Trib Two's (this fall trade in your stilettos for a kitten heel like Samanta's Jessie Tall Pump in Beige). Drew had a fresh blow-out for her ombre tresses, letting her hair fall naturally around her shoulders to reveal beaded Malandrino hoops (check out Calico Juno's Studded Hoops with Drop in Gold). What are your thoughts on this look, is it working for her? I'm loving the attitude she's giving the pants with her hands-in-pockets poses. I like the direction her style is taking these days! In light of the long distance relationship their characters play in their new flick, it seems like Drew has been asked in every interview what she and Justin's status is. She told Star: "We never talk about when we’re together and when we’re not. It never, ever will be addressed. Mystery is sexy. But I definitely think it was a benefit that we knew each other so well. It’s very rare to have such an amazing chemistry with someone. That was such a blessing." Hmmm, what do you think about this mystery?
