Jersey Shore's Jenni "JWOWW" Farley and The Hills star Stephanie Pratt both picked long purple dresses when they stepped out for red carpet moments, and we were taken with how elegant these ladies could look in dresses that don't show their thighs. JWOWW first wore a long purple dress last year for a Spike TV event in Los Angeles, and went for a feminine finish with her hair down and strappy, gold sandals. Meanwhile, Stephanie Pratt sat front row at the Vera Wang fashion show last month in a sleeveless purple shift with a floral detail on the shoulder that the designer sent Steph herself! Both MTV fashionistas rocked purple, but we think Stephanie Pratt won this style matchup. She looked a lot more polished with her updo and soft makeup, whereas JWOWW’s hair and sandals felt more boardwalk, less red carpet to us. But what do you think?

Justin Timberlake, Justin Bieber, and Mark Salling are three of our favorite heartthrobs who've recently gone nerdy on us — and trust us, we mean that in a great way. We love that these guys have been switching up their style and going for geeky chic glasses every once in a while. But who looks hottest in thick black frames? You tell us. But first, let's take a closer look ...

Hotter with glasses? Our vote: YES.
Justin recently attended the premiere of The Social Network in a black and blue blazer and hipster glasses with thick black frames. But just last month, he showed up at the 2010 Video Music Awards in a sleek black leather jacket and left the eyewear at home. He looks awesome in glasses, like a serious, intense, studious guy. And wouldn't you want him to study you?

Hotter with glasses? Our vote: NO.
Justin Bieber looked more like an indie singer than an R&B crooner when he wore glasses, a hat, and an orange plaid shirt during a performance in Tokyo. But like Justin T., he leaves the glasses at home regularly, like when he attended last month's VMAs. We kinda like him without the glasses. They're too much of a distraction when we'd much rather focus on his famous tossed, long, side-swept hair and big brown eyes.

Hotter with glasses? Our vote: SOMETIMES.
Mark Salling pulled out his glasses when he showed up at a Macy's event last month in Los Angeles wearing thick square frames and a black shirt with a bright orange stripe. But one week earlier, the Glee star looked cool in plaid at the premiere of his show's second season. Mark Salling looks equally hot both ways, so we're really undecided on this one.

Kat DeLuna on Sept. 14 and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi on June 23.

Jersey Shore's Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Kat DeLuna both love to shine in the spotlight, as proven by their recent choice of the same sparkly black, gold, and white dress by Lipsy London. Snooki wore the strapless shift, from the label's VIP line, with gold peep-toe slingbacks when she attended the Grown Ups premiere in New York over the summer. Meanwhile, Kat DeLuna attended a Trump Golf party in New York last month in the same frock and styled it similarly to Snooki by also choosing gold shoes. We adored the mini on both ladies, but we think Snooki takes this style matchup. Kat's bun was too tight for this fun look, while Snooki's softer styling made her look so comfortable and sexy in the dress. But what do you think?

+ Who wore this dress best — Kat DeLuna or Snooki?

Lauren Conrad has been everywhere this month! Not only does The Hills alumna have two new books out, a design collaboration with Kohl's, and a new MTV series in the works, she's also Teen Vogue's November cover girl! And we love her cover outfit. For the front page of the glossy, Lauren Conrad wore a royal blue Nanette Lepore Ingrid dress ($368, NanetteLepore.com) with vertical welt pockets. The frock has feminine cap sleeves, a zip front, and an open back with crisscross detail. As for accessorizing, Lauren kept it simple and clean with just a single necklace in the shape of a diamond by In God We Trust ($100, refinery29.com). Both of these pieces are available online, should you want to copy Lauren Conrad's Teen Vogue style yourself.

La La Vazquez, wife of basketball star Carmelo Anthony, former MTV VJ, and star of VH1's La La's Full Court Wedding, hit the red carpet at Diesel's Only The Brave party in New York last night in a vibrant multicolor dress. With its blue, purple, orange, and yellow watercolor hues, this mini is one of the brightest outfits we've seen in a while (especially now that it's fall!), which is why it became an instant MTV Style favorite. Who created this look? La La Vazquez tweeted that the dress was vintage Christian LaCroix. Pretty! So, would you wear a bright multicolor dress like La La?

Adrienne Bailon and Kat DeLuna showed off their similar taste in clothes when both ladies wore an olive Lipsy London mesh dress ($80, Lipsy.co.uk) to recent events. Adrienne Bailon wore the strapless frock, which gathers at the waist, to the launch of MNG by Mango at JCPenney in New York last night, pairing it with black pumps and dangly earrings. Meanwhile, Kat DeLuna wore the dress last month to Carlos Miele's presentation during New York Fashion Week, and like Adrienne, also chose black pumps. Both ladies looked great in the mini, but we think Adrienne wore it best this round. Kat's bright orange nails and bold hoops were a bit much for the shift, while Adrienne's soft hair and sleek earrings complemented the dress just right. But what do you think?

When Enrique Iglesias dropped by the MTV studios recently to chat about his hit song "I Like It" (the video features the Jersey Shore cast), we couldn't help but wonder how he perfected his play-it-cool style. Turns out, he's a natural! "I hate going shopping for clothing," he says. "I hate having to get dressed up for a performance. I’m lazy when it comes down to that. If I had to be a stylist, I would probably starve." But there is one pre-show styling move that Enrique Iglesias never skips. WAXING! Find out what this hottie waxes — yes, it's more than one place — in the clip below.

Roxy Olin, Leighton Meester, and Mischa Barton flaunt their abs in belly-baring dresses.

Roxy Olin, Leighton Meester, and Mischa Barton are not afraid to show some skin — no matter what season it is! All three ladies recently stepped out in belly-baring, cutout dresses in bright colors and patterns. Let's take a closer look at their midriff-exposing outfits below.

ROXY OLIN: Earlier this week, The City star Roxy Olin debuted a hot pink dress with cutouts at her stomach and shoulders that SuperTrash designed in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month at the Fashion Fighting for the Cure event in New York (the dress goes on sale Oct. 9 for $99 online). Roxy played up the feminine color with pointed-toe pumps and loose, wavy locks.

LEIGHTON MEESTER: Last month, Gossip Girl Leighton Meester chose an electric blue mini with cutouts by Versus by Versace for Fashion's Night Out, and wore it with multicolor Christian Louboutin booties and a sparkly clutch.

MISCHA BARTON: Finally, Mischa Barton went for patterns instead of bright colors when she wore a red-and-white sparrow print Miu Miu dress from the label's spring 2010 collection in London earlier this summer. Black shoes and a bold red lip helped Mischa pull off the look.

While all three style stars pulled off this daring trend, Leighton Meester's look has to be our favorite! The banded blue dress fit her body perfectly, and we love how she added even more to the outfit with fun accessories and bright shoes. But what do you think?

+ Which midriff dress do you like best — Roxy, Leighton's, or Mischa's?
