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. Conrad embodied classic California glam, even as a brunette! The designer accented her soft beige dress with Jimmy Choo gladiators and a stack of diamond bracelets from Dana Rebecca Designs.

There’s no stopping Taylor Swift these days when it comes to stunning style! The gorgeous singer posed for pics at the CoverGirl 50th Anniversary celebrations in a show-stopping sequinned black sweetheart Mark & James dress teamed with strappy D&G heels. She added some extra sparkle with Neil Lane jewels and a slick of red lippy for a final flourish. We love it!

For the People’s Choice Awards, Taylor Swift complemented a blush J. Mendel design with strappy nude sandals and coral, diamond and pearl Neil Lane jewelry. Sweet has never looked so sexy. Swift’s ballerina-ready dress seemed to defy gravity with its sultry illusion neckline.

Black Swan star Mila Kunis showed off her style prowess at the People’s Choice Awards in a gorgeous olive-hued strapless ruffled dress by J.Mendel. Keeping her look pared-down but very pretty, the actress showed off her silky, luscious locks wearing them in a smooth side-parting.

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.

Nicki Minaj : ‘Too Much’ At Tao

Nicki Minaj celebrated her 26th birthday at trendy hotspot Tao on Thursday (December 9) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The “Your Love” rapper was joined by her pals Amber Rose and Cassie on the red carpet. Nicki’s actual birthday was the night before (December 8).

Earlier in the week, Nicki made an appearance on Lopez Tonight, where she wore a barbed wire booty protector!

Nicki was one of the top searched for celebrities on Google in 2010, behind only Justin Bieber, Shakira, Eminem, Lady Gaga, and Ke$ha.

Kelly Brook : Hot In ’30’

Celebrating her 31st birthday, Kelly Brook was spotted out and about in London, England last night (November 23).

The birthday girl was joined by Thom Evans, a Scottish rugby player, as she meandered around the English capitol in a charcoal grey dress with black accents and some funky heels.

Ms. Brook hit up the Dorchester for dinner before heading out to Mahiki nightclub. She returned to the Mayfair Hotel in the wee hours.

With her tight black dress, Kelly Brook was clearly aiming to showed off her svelte figure as she arrived at the Prince’s Trust Rock Gala 2010.

But instead of wowing fans with her stunning curves, which she has become famous for during her career, Brook’s outfit had the opposite effect – instead drawing attention to her apparent weight loss.

The 30-year-old model looked thinner than ever in the black velvet minidress, which highlighted her incredibly tiny waist.

Miley Cyrus : ’18’ At Trousdale !

Making for quite the memorable evening, Miley Cyrus followed up her 2010 American Music Awards performance with a night of celebration at Trousdale in Los Angeles on Sunday (November 21).

Donning a black bra-like top and matching leather pants, the “Hannah Montana” star was greeted by a slew of Hollywood stars including Demi Moore and Rumer Willis while ringing in an early 18th birthday fete.

With her mother Tish also on hand, Miss Cyrus also welcomed the likes of John Mayer, Kelly Osbourne, Kyle Massey and Ke$ha, with an E! source telling, “John’s presence was the buzz of the party, and he wished Miley a happy birthday.”

Also partaking in a danceoff to Pink’s “Raise Your Glass” with Ke$ha during the night, Miley turned heads while offering up a PDA moment as things wound down with rumored new flame Avan Jogia.

Getting in a few hours of work, Miley Cyrus was spotted at a recording studio in Beverly Hills this morning (November 19).

Joined by fellow paparazzi magnet Kelly Osbourne, the “Hannah Montana” babe looked cute in a plaid button-up shirt layered over a white t-shirt with jeans.

Hilary Duff & Michelle Trachtenberg : Night Of Lucky Shoppers !

Hilary Duff decided to think big for her red carpet appearance at the 10th Anniversary Lucky Shops VIP Night in New York City on Thursday (November 4).

The actress, who was otherwise impeccably styled in a one-shoulder little black dress, turned heads as she arrived at a party at the Metropolitan Pavilion wearing a bizarre bouffant.

While the 23-year-old is sporting the hair-colour of the moment – two-toned dip dyed locks – it seems her hairdresser was a little overzealous on the back-combing.

Also on-hand for the Big Apple soiree were “Gossip Girl” actress Michelle Trachtenberg. She wore an animal printed top by Rebecca Taylor paired with black denim leggings and red wedges by Giuseppe Zanotti. She also carried a handbag by Christian Louboutin and wore a dark red lip shade, which complimented her skin tone.

Kim Kardashian : Tao’s Bday Girl !

Fresh off of a flight from Las Vegas, Kim Kardashian wasted no time in getting back into party mode in New York City on Saturday night (October 16).

Changing into a curve-hugging white dress, the E! reality star made her way over to TAO New York to once again celebrate her 30th birthday a bit early while also ringing in TAO’s 10th anniversary.

During the course of the evening, Miss Kardashian was presented with a specially decorated birthday cake – of which she excitedly blew out the candles while joined by singer gal pal Ciara.

Tweeting throughout the night, Kim capped off her messages by writing, “Birthday celebration #2 at Tao NYC with @Ciara @LorenRidinger @JRRidinger @HauteLiving!”

As for turning the big 3-0, the brunette beauty recently told People magazine, “I have mixed feelings. Sometimes I’m like, ‘Oh my god, I’m turning 30,’ and I’m freaking out. Like, it sounds so old. And then the other half of me is like, I feel so accomplished and it’s really no different than 29.”

AnnaLynne McCord : Fabulous At 50

AnnaLynne McCord poses for photographs at 50 & Fabulous: Celebrating 50 Years of Women’s Advances Since The Pill event at the Pierre Hotel in New York City.

AnnaLynne  always manages to look like a bit of a sex kitten when she graces the red carpet, and this look take the whole sex kitten idea to a new level. The ‘90210’  star has teamed a buttoned-down white shirt with a silver patterned suit jacket and skinny black pants with bright metallic pink shoes. The jacket is really chic, and probably the most noticeable item of this look, while the crisp shirt and pants combo is business-like without being too fussy.

Her shoe choice is a bit random, the colour doesn’t exactly match, but this isn’t too obvious, and she definitely gets away with it. Some simple black stilettos or boots probably would have looked better here, but overall, this look rocks.

She’s finished off the ensemble with sleek hair and some smokey eyes – this is sultry and sophisticated, perfect for AnnaLynne!
