New “American Idol” judge Jennifer Lopez showed off her signature curves on New Year’s Eve in a sexy sequined $2,500 Herve Leger bandage dress upon arriving at Love — The Beatles Cirque du Soleil show — at The Mirage in Las Vegas, Nevada. Caramel-colored locks, stacked bracelets, a diamond cocktail ring, and mirrored peep-toes completed her flawless look.

Meanwhile, at Marquee nightclub in Sin City’s swanky new Cosmopolitan hotel, former “City” star Whitney Port arrived for the Jay-Z/Coldplay New Year’s Eve concert in a fashion-forward Jill Stuart frock, statement necklace, and strappy stilettos.

Also spotted sporting a similar shade … Taraji P. Henson (“Hustle & Flow”), who rocked a $215 ruffled Elizabeth and James micro mini and $800 gold Yves St. Laurent sandals.

2010 was the year we wanted everything in Drew Barrymore’s wardrobe, but now it seems 2011 is shaping up to be even better! Barely out of the style spotlight, the actress has stormed into the new year working a fashion-forward zingy orange gown from Jil Sander’s lust-some SS11 collection. And sticking to the rules of colour, Drew let the dress do all the work, with a simple black Hunting Season clutch and loose, fuss-free, dip-dyed locks completing the look.

Lauren Conrad looked appropriately easy and breezy in a draped Quail minidress for Covergirl’s 50th anniversary celebration in West Hollywood.

Selena Gomez’s first of two outfits at the People’s Choice Awards was this delicate frill-shouldered number. Nude is a hot colour for the new season and the blush shade of her dress complemented her dark locks and olive skin perfectly. The teen sensation, who picked up the gong for Favourite Break-Out Artist, later changed into a flowing maxi-dress for her performance of “A Year Without Rain” with her band, The Scene.

Leighton’s muted grey dress and Brian Atwood pumps were given a shot of colour at the People’s Choice Awards thanks to a coral-coloured corsage and matching drop earrings. Make like Leighton and inject your winter wardrobe with a neon accessory or two to get you in the mood for spring.

Here’s what Jess had to share :

On changing her perspective : “I’ve learned to forgive myself for not being perfect and not stressing myself. I have had a reputation for being fiercely protective of my independence. My daughter has put everything in perspective for me. You stop being selfish and driven in such a narrow personal sense, and you want to build a life for yourself and your family. I tended to be a workaholic in the past and now I don’t feel that kind of self-imposed stress anymore.”

On her family changed her : “My husband and my daughter are my world. Together we want to build a truly loving and beautiful family. I’m very traditional in that sense. When Honor was born, I also felt that it was a good time to change many things. I was always the type of woman who tried to please other people and do everything right. Putting that kind of pressure on yourself isn’t healthy for you in the long run. It wears you down.”

Kirsten Dunst : ‘LadyLike’ On BlackBook

Kirsten Dunst was stunning in Louis Vuitton on the cover of BlackBook magazine’s December 2010/January 2011 issue!

Here’s what the 28-year-old All Good Things actress had to share with editor Nick Haramis:

On the importance of her All Good Things role: ““I used to assume that I’d do this forever, and then there came a point in my life when I was like, Why am I doing this at all? With All Good Things, I realized that acting is what I’m meant to be doing, and not for the money or to make a hit, but because I love it. For the first time, acting became more about me than everybody else, and that was amazingly cathartic.”

On checking into rehab in 2008 to deal with depression: “My friends and family were put in a position where they had to defend me, and it was an awful time… On a personal level, I would talk to anybody about it, but not on a public level. If I do that, then the next person feels like they can ask me about it, and the person after that, until everyone then feels entitled to ask me about it, and that’s not coming from a good place.”

On reading celeb blogs: “I like JustJared because he’s never mean….that’s the one gossip site I’ll go to…..I’m usually like, ‘What’s going on? What are people doing? Oh my god, I can’t believe that!’”
