There was a lot of star power on the red carpet Thursday night when Samsung launched its Galaxy Note II at a party in Beverly Hills.

It was one of a series of events to mark the launch. On Wednesday, Kanye West entertained crowds at a New York launch party.

Model-turned-actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and actors Jaime King, Julianne Hough, Liam Hemsworth, Octavia Spencer, Kate Walsh and Eliza Dushku were among those who walked the red carpet for Samsung at a private Beverly Hills home.

Style ran the gamut from Christina Aguilera's black leather jacket and leopard print cap, and Vanessa Hudgens' black sequinned long-sleeve cocktail dress to Julianne Hough's floor-length cobalt blue gown.

Entertainment was provided by Chazwick Bundick, aka Toro Y Mo, and band.
