Fresh from her London promo tour, Nicki Minaj looked smokin' hot (literally) during her performance of "Right Thru Me" on Saturday Night Live in New York City over the weekend. The rapper teamed her Bride of Frankenstein/Salt N Pepa pink 'do with a giant blush-colored ball gown from Christian Siriano's Spring/Summer 2011 collection. There was so much frothy tulle on the dress's skirt that it looked like Nicki was floating on a cloud of smoke. We could have done without the wild wig, but we LOVED the overly dramatic dress. What do you think?

Even though the SAGs are sort of like a scaled-down version of the Golden Globes, the red carpet at last night's awards show was nonetheless impressive. In fact, it was near impossible to find any WTF looks (a rarity when it comes to red carpet ensembles). So which stars sizzled? These are our picks...

MILA KUNIS: Black Swan's Mila Kunis looked sexy-cool with her beachy hair and belted orange-and-red Alexander McQueen dress.

JANUARY JONES: The constant fashionista, Mad Men star January Jones gave her gold lace Carolina Herrera gown some dramatic flair by sweeping her hair up into a super-smooth chignon.

HEATHER MORRIS: If it seems like Heather Morris is always on our best-dressed lists, it's probably because she is! For the SAGs, the Glee girl teamed a stunning Romona Keveza peach gown with sleek strands.

JULIA STILES: And you thought ombre was just for hair! Julia Stiles wore a navy-to-white strapless Monique Lhuillier gown with big, vintage-y earrings and perfectly wavy hair.

AMBER RILEY: Actress/singer Amber Riley of Glee looked AMAZING in a fitted black Anne Barge gown with a ruched bodice and mermaid skirt. We love the dress, but her pink pout is our fave!

Hollywood's leading ladies pulled out their hottest garments for the 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards show last night. While color (and lots of it!) was a common thread throughout the night, we also spotted stars working other fierce trends, including belted gowns, sexy slits, and smoky eyes.

BELTED BEAUTIES: Lea Michele got high marks in a low-cut silver sequined Oscar de La Renta dress, which she wore with with a skinny gold belt. Claire Danes wore a billowing floral strapless gown by Marc Jacobs. Meanwhile, Jennifer Lawrence looked pretty in pink thanks to her wrapped and belted Oscar De La Renta number.

THIGH-HIGH SLITS: For Sofia Vergara (in neon blue Roberto Cavalli), Rosario Dawson (in sherbert yellow J. Mendel), and Jayma Mays (in soft peach Jenny Packham), their sheaths were just as important as their shoes. Each of the celeb's dress featured a slit to THERE—all the better to show off their strappy peep toes with.

FIERY FROCKS: While the Golden Globes were awash in green (remember?), the SAGs were all about red and orange. Newcomer Hailee Steinfeld looked modern and chic in a striped Prada dress. Sarah Hyland rocked a blazing waist-knotted Max Mara dress. And Mila Kunis was also on trend in a flowy Alexander McQueen strapless number.

SMOLDERING EYES: Natalie Portman, Christina Hendricks and Dianna Agron all sported their own take on the smoky eye look. Natalie kept hers soft and subtle by using brown and taupe eye shadows; Christina used traditional shadow shades of silver, gray, and slate liner; and Dianna emphasized the line around her eyes to create a cat-eye effect.

Move over, Cinderella! Nicki Minaj is the new princess in town. In her video, "Moment 4 Life," which debuted last night, Nicki played the role of queen for a day, complete with a fairy godmother, sparkly slippers, crowns, fancy ball gowns and her very own sharp-dressed prince (played by rapper Drake). Once upon a time...

Wearing an airy pink ball gown, wings, and a blingy crown, Nicki Minaj also played "Fairy Godmother" (aka "Martha," Nicki's real-life alter ego)—British accent and all.

This wouldn't be a Cinderella story without the infamous magic slippers. In Nicki's case, they were Christian Louboutin diamond-encrusted pumps. You definitely wouldn't want to leave one of those behind for the prince to find.

"Put it on everything that I will retire with the ring," Nicki says in "Moment 4 Life." This rock of a ring?

The rapper donned a baby blue chiffon goddess gown with crystal accents from The Blonds Spring 2011 collection, with a pretty dripping headpiece.

Drake (er, the prince) looked suave in all-black everything, which he teamed with a single gold chain necklace and some serious swagger.

This army-green studded minidress with a super-long puffy train gave Nicki (er, the princess) an exotic, bourgeois vibe.

Nicki accessorized the bustier-inspired dress with a pale pink wig, green tights, and gold-studded booties.

Nicki broke up her triple-pink makeup look (pink polish, pink lipstick and pink hair) with eye candy—a swipe of turquoise liner on her bottom lash line. Fierce!

We know it's a fairytale, but Drake (in a suit-and-bow-tie combo) and Nicki (in a gorge white ball gown) look so freakin' cute together.

At an event called "A Night of Red Carpet Style," we expected to see some fashion hotness. Well, we weren't disappointed. The People StyleWatch-hosted fete held last night at Decades boutique in Los Angeles drew tons of celebs, including Whitney Port in a sequin-covered frock and Cassie Scerbo in a gilded print minidress. Here are all of our fave looks of the evening.

WHITNEY PORT: The subtle asymmetrical hem on Whitney Port's paillette-covered dress is what made it a standout.

ROSE MCGOWAN: Former Charmed star Rose McGowan took a plunge in a bright green dress from Juan Carlos Obando's Spring 2011 line, which she paired with studded silver shoes and the most-perfect pink pout.

ARIEL WINTER: In this sparkly, sleeveless number, you may not recognize Modern Family's Ariel Winter (the 13-year-old's character is usually wearing glasses and cardigans).

LOUISE ROE: Proving that style is in her blood, fashion journalist Louise Roe (who also appeared in a few episodes of The City, season 2) wore a leather miniskirt and a pumpkin yellow blouse with leopard print booties and a bright orange/red tote.

Tonight's episode of Jersey Shore was all about triumph: JWOWW officially called it quits with her longtime BF Tom (and changed the locks on her old house to prove it)...Sammi and Ronnie almost broke up (again), but worked it out...JWOWW and Sammi hugged it out...Ronnie finally got his stripper pole. And a ton of other things went down, but we were just too distracted by the furry new roomies (and JWOWW's feather top).

JWOWW'S BJÖRK TOP: JWOWW showed off her artsy side again in a feathery lace halter top, which she wore with large-and-in-charge earrings to the club with Roger, her first post-Tom beau.

VINNY'S GRENADE WHISTLE: Vinny debuted his grenade horn, which he said lets seaside know when "grenades" (aka unwanted lady friends) have entered the house.

THE SITUATION AND JWOWW'S DOG: The newest roomies just so happened to be the cutest (in our opinion). JWOWW's two mini-dogs came to live in the seaside house, and The Situation bonded over one, in particular, who he vowed to "teach how to pimp."

Amber Lancaster on Jan. 26, the Ian Polished Jersey Sleeveless Jumpsuit, Alice + Olivia's Penny Peak Lapel Jumpsuit, and South's Tall Cupro Jumpsuit.

Actress Amber Lancaster proves that onesies aren't just for newborns. Last night, The Hard Times of RJ Berger actress rocked a chic grown-up version to a FG Magazine party in Hollywood. She tweeted and told us that the military-green jumpsuit was from Alice + Olivia and that she picked up the vintage-y looking belt from a thrift store. We love how, together, the cute cap sleeves and handy-dandy pockets lend themselves to dressing up (for a party) or down (for a weekend-full of errands). No wonder babies practically live in the versatile garment! To snag Amber's look (and feel like a kid again), look for a short-sleeved jumpsuit that is slightly fitted in the legs. And, ALWAYS partner it with a pair of heels or fiesty booties. Here are a few to try...

+ Ian Polished Jersey Sleeveless Jumpsuit ($93.45) features a drop waist, drawstring ties, and skinny legs.

+ This Alice + Olivia Penny Peak Lapel Jumpsuit With Belt ($183.50) is the same style Amber Lancaster is wearing, except in black.

+ The cuffed ankle on this South Tall Cupro Jumpsuit ($103.60) makes it a standout.

Gerard Way at an American Express/GRAMMY Museum panel on Jan. 26 and at Fuse studios in New York on Dec. 2.

Inspired by 2010's big choppers Emma Watson, Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, and Keira Knightley (OK, maybe not!), My Chemical Romance band member Gerard Way recently took a pair of scissors to his Kool-Aid-colored coif, shearing the sides and trimming a couple of inches off the top. Is the new 'do a sneak peek at the singer's stage style for MCR's upcoming tour? Maybe. But Gerard didn't stop with just a cut. He also refreshed his pinkish-red dye job, covering up his grown-out brown roots, for a lush look that we sort of have the urge to run our fingers through.

+ Which Gerard Way 'do is your fave — short and sleek or long and wayward?

Emma Roberts Jan. 24 and Jan. 23 at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

Thanks to all of the well-dressed celebs attending the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, we are getting a crash course in dressing for cold weather (so as to not look like the Michelin Man)—an important lesson, indeed. Our latest finding? When in doubt, pack multiple jackets. Actress Emma Roberts proved this theory true by popping up all over Park City, Utah, wearing jackets of varying shapes and sizes—from a structured wool blazer and a fur-trimmed sporty puffer to a cozy wrap cardigan by McGinn—with jeans and boots. The simple switcheroo transformed the vibe of each look...and, more important, kept her toasty.

+ Which one of Emma Roberts' coats do you covet?

Elizabeth Olsen at the Sundance Film Festival on Jan. 22, 2011 and Jan. 21, 2011, at a screening of 'Mao's Last Dancer' on Aug. 16, 2010, and at the 'Impressionism' after party on Mar. 24, 2009.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's lil' sister Elizabeth was essentially an unknown until this past week in Park City, Utah at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival where she debuted two indies that she starred in—Silent House and Martha Marcy May Marlene. After screenings, the 21-year-old's acting chops were being applauded, even securing her a role in Rodrigo Cortes's upcoming thriller Red Lights, with Robert De Niro and Sigourney Weaver. Elizabeth's success is spilling over into her wardrobe choices, too. Check out the two-thumbs-up ensembles we found the baby Olsen sib stepping out in.

Winter Wonderland
Even in snow showers, Elizabeth looked fresh faced at the Sundance Film Festival on Jan. 22 in Park City, Utah. If she keeps it up (the acting and the flawless complexion), we see a beauty contract in this girl's future.

Chic On the Go
For the premiere of Martha Marcy May Marlene on Jan. 21, the up-and-comer smartly dressed up her basics with a leather orange bag and matching belt.

Short and Sweet
Looking a lot like her older sisters, Elizabeth rocked a retro mini V-neck dress with a brown belt and nude ankle strap shoes at a screening of Mao's Last Dancer in August.

Long Haul
Pre-haircut, Elizabeth emphasized her past-the-shoulders mane in a couture-y floor-skimming, oversize frock, which she wore to the Broadway opening night of Impressionism in 2009.
