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.

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.

K-Stew, who attended the ceremony on the arm of her on-and off-screen beau Robert Pattinson, picked up the coveted award for Favourite Movie Actress. Meanwhile, her latest film, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, was nominated Favourite Drama Movie and Favourite Movie over all. Proof positive that everything this girl touches turns to gold.

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.

Selena Gomez performed at the People’s Choice Awards in a cascading butterfly-print Irina Shabayeva gown, Isharya hoops and strappy metallic platform heels.

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.

Look Of The Week : Mila, Swift, Jennifer, Halle, Heidi, Rebecca, Wilde, Chloe, Dannii, Ginnifer, Madonna

Mila Kunis hit the red carpet jackpot at the New York premiere of “Black Swan.” The beautiful brunette, who plays a dancer in the film, was goddess-like in a plunging blush Elie Saab Spring 2011 gown and gold-tipped Louboutin heels.

Jake Gyllenhaal’s new sweetie Taylor Swift tore herself away from her new beau and his maple lattes just long enough to hit the red carpet at the CMT Artists of the Year concert in Franklin, Tennessee, Tuesday night. The country singer wore a cute lace Jenny Packham number for the special, which will air December 3 on CMT.

Proving she’s still got it, Jennifer Lopez continued to defy the aging process at a Boys & Girls Clubs of America event when she donned a sexy, curve-hugging Herve Leger by Max Azria geometric dress. Brian Atwood “Maniac” pumps and fabulous loose tresses completed her flawless look.

Although most mortals would look like an Atlantic City reject in the Fall 2010 Balmain jacquard suit that Halle Berry wore to the premiere of her latest Oscar-bait film, “Frankie and Alice,” in Hollywood Tuesday night, Berry pulled it off with fab flair!

Halle also rocked this tough chic look in over the knee leather boots at Variety’s Los Angeles screening series presentation of “Frankie and Alice” at ArcLight Hollywood. She paired the on-trend footwear with leather leggings and a sheer tee for a daring look.

Heidi Klum went metallic in a formfitting pewter fringe and crystal Jenny Packham cocktail dress and stacked rings at an Astor press event in Munich. She’s still got it! Klum’s supermodel figure looked flawless beaded and belted in a deep slate mini that complemented her golden locks and tan.

Rebecca Hall nailed the ladylike trend at the London Evening Standard Awards in a Louis Vuitton corset and skirt accessorized with the brand’s Sofia Coppola clutch and kitten heels.

For the Los Angeles Confidential cover party in Malibu, Olivia Wilde accessorized her silk dress and L’Agence jacket with a Jimmy Choo clutch and Aldo sandals. Olivia lived up to her last name with a motorcycle jacket in an unexpected tweed. The topper gave her understated LBD an edgy spin.

Cool Kick-Ass actress Chloe Moretz worked a super cute pink, white and black layered lace Chanel dress as she arrived at the EA British Academy Children’s Awards in London last night. We love Chloe’s side-swept, gentle waved bobbed ‘do.

Rolling out the dress hits of late Dannii Minogue was the ultimate lady in red as she hit the X Factor in a stunner of a scarlet confection by Carla Zampatti. The gorgeous asymmetric gown tumbled down her svelte figure in beautiful layered folds of chiffon, revealing her Sergio Rossi nude pumps. A simple up-do showed off the neck-line of the dress, not to mention those sparkling Annoushka earrings.

Ginnifer Goodwin attended a MOCA benefit luncheon at the Beverly Hills Tod’s boutique in skinny jeans dressed up with a Derek Lam print top and a Derek Lam for Tod’s jacket, shoes and satchel.

IFP’s 20th Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards

Proving that she can look like a million dollars in just about anything, “Black Swan” actress Natalie Portman wowed the crowd at the Gotham Independent Film Awards in a $199 one-shoulder Lanvin for H&M frock. The stylish star completed her look with black velvet heels, Tiffany & Co. earrings, and a silver studded Christian Dior clutch.

Joining Black Swan co-star and real-life pal Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis looked adorable in a navy Oscar de la Renta Spring 2011 corset dress cinched with a studded belt.

Few stars could pull off this daring lace mini, but it was a stunning choice for Hilary Swank who paired it perfectly with leg-lengthening strappy heels and bouncy waves pushed back from the crown.

Anne Hathaway has been a red carpet whirlwind of late promoting her current film Love and Other Drugs, but she proved she still has a stunning dress or two up her sleeve as she stepped put in this figure-hugging vintage rose-print shift by Dolce & Gabbana.

We love nothing more than a girly girl working menswear. Check out Leighton Meester in this grey peg-legged suit and loose tie. The Gossip Girl actress softened the look with a pair of satin pumps and a green clutch back. Blair Waldorf wouldn’t be caught dead in this look but Leighton pulls it off with aplomb.

Winona Ryder had opted for an ultra-girlie look at the Gotham Film Awards in a ballerina-esque lace dress by Dolce & Gabbana completed with a wavy up-do and delicate kitten heels.

Redhead beauty Julianne Moore worked a funky draped feather-print mini, sheer plum-coloured tights and wavy locks at the night to celebrate the best in independent film.

While most of her fellow stars opted for mini lengths, Amanda Peet went boho chic for the Gotham Independent Film Awards in a sheer layered maxi topped with a neat velvet blazer.

Amber Tamblyn donned a neutral toned cocktail dress with a simple cut and a soft center front ruffle. Amber paired her loose bun with chain embellished earrings.

Julianna Margulies vamped up her black dress by Narciso Rodriguez with a swipe of tomato red lipstick.

“Black Swan” New York Premiere

It would only be fitting for the star of Black Swan to don a dramatic black dress for the film’s premiere. Natalie Portman was gorgeously mysterious in an off-the-shoulder maxi-gown and a chic little book-shaped clutch by Olympia Le-Tan (the very same one worn by Clemence Poesy at the Harry Potter world premiere). A bold red lip added a glamour to the look.

Keep your eyes on this lady. Not only is Mila Kunis a talented actress (comedic roles in That 70s Show and Meg’s voice on Family Guy and a dramatic turn in Black Swan) but she’s seriously stylish, too. Just check out her nude-coloured gown and matching Christian Louboutin ‘Maggie’ pumps, worn to the New York premiere of Black Swan. She looks elegant, sexy and trendy at the same time. And the look couldn’t be more different from the short navy Oscar de la Renta number she wore the night before. We love a girl with fashion range!

Winona Ryder donned a more masculine style on the red carpet. Here she wore a boxy tuxedo jacket with slim pants and a leather clutch. She added a subtle touch to her black suit with a pendant necklace, a glamorous pair of onyx and diamond hoop earrings, and a black satin clutch.

Mila Kunis : ‘Center Stage’ Of Nylon

Mila Kunis takes the cover of Nylon’s December 2010/January 2011 issue.

Here’s what the 27-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On Black Swan: “It was the most intense training I’ve ever had in my life, and probably will have for anything. I lost 20 pounds, so I went down to 95 pounds. I weigh 117 usually, like today. I looked like Gollum [from The Lord of the Rings].”

On her career: “Literally, at this point, my career has been built on low expectations, and when you surpass those low expectations, you’re a winner.”

On shooting Friends with Benefits with Justin Timberlake in NYC: “I’ve never seen people in my life with so little respect [as the paparazzi]… when we were filming on the street in New York it was pure and utter insanity.”

On Family Guy and its fans: “It’s the greatest gig ever… It’s the greatest fanbase ever, but weird. They’re all f—ing stoners. It’s the largest fanbase of anything I’ve ever done, I hope it never goes off the air.”

MOCA’s Annual Gala “The Artist’s Museum Happening”

The golden tips of Rachel Bilson’s two-tone hair matched the hue of her intricate, vintage-inspired knit Chanel dress. She added a bit of edge to her look with some chain-embellished Camilla Skovgaard strappy sandals and a hot pink lip color.

Kirsten Dunst, a longtime Chanel fan, donned a romantic floor-length cream dress from the most recent Chanel Resort collection. Diamonds, a black clutch and deep red lipcolor completed her old Hollywood look.

Stunning Superman leading lady Kate Bosworth proved that black doesn’t have to be plain in her stunning Chanel gown. The sheer lace panels made it just the right amount of sexy, while her classic bouffant hairdo and chandelier earrings added a feel of timeless Hollywood glamour. More …
