The Four Seasons in Hollywood was positively glowing with star power Monday night as Elle magazine celebrated its 18th annual Women in Hollywood gala.

With Calvin Klein serving as a sponsor of the event, the brand naturally reigned on the red carpet, with stars like Naomi Watts, Amber Heard, Freida Pinto, Abigail Breslin, Chloe Moretz, and Elizabeth Olsen—the Calvin Klein Collection Emerging Star Spotlight Award honoree—arriving in their Francisco Costa-designed finest. (Of course, Costa was also a guest of the evening.)

While a slew of talented actresses were honored, one icon reportedly had the crowd starry-eyed: Barbra Streisand, who was called a “legend” by Pinto.

"They're all so charming, so well spoken, and so thin," Streisand said of the swooning actresses on hand, according to the Huffington Post. "I ate the chocolate cake."

Jennifer Aniston wowed in a plunging silver KaufmanFranco mini, while Nicole Richie wore a sweeping one-shoulder chiffon gown by Douglas Hannant. Jayma Mays also opted for an asymmetrical style—a bright blue dress by Malandrino, which she paired with David Yurman jewelry.

In the LBD camp, Evan Rachel Wood chose a sheer-skirted black number from Alessandra Rich's Fall 2011 line (accessorized by a vintage House of Lavande necklace), Michelle Pfeiffer wore a long-sleeved V-neck dress featuring a sexy corset belt from Alexander McQueen's Resort 2012 collection with Neil Lane jewelry, and Robin Wright wore a layered black look. Reese Witherspoon bucked the dress trend with a black suit and lacy underpinnings.
