Kim Kardashian isn't afraid to hit the rewind button on her fashion choices. Last Thursday, the reality star attended the launch party for her Belle Noel jewelry line in West Hollywood donning a black blazer, beige and black tanks, black skinny pants and nude pumps. She wore her hair pulled back in a loose bun and also rocked a beige headband and bold pendant necklace. Just three months earlier in New York, the fashionista slipped into a very similar outfit—black blazer, beige tank, black skinny pants, bold pendant. The only difference was that she ditched the headband, and chose black pumps instead. Since Kim's outfits are mirror images of each other, we're calling this fashion face-off a draw. But what do you think?

Sure, you could rock a capelet or a pencil skirt, but an easier way to wear houndstooth is on your fingernails (à la Snooki). The Jersey Shore star wore the classic black-and-white pattern on her digits while attending the 69th Washington Auto Show conference on Jan. 31. Unless you have the steadiest hand on the planet, it's near impossible to get this funky look (which works well with a Hello Kitty ring, too) with regular old nail polish. Enter press-on lacquer strips! We love Nail Fraud's Houndstooth Hotty ($12, Here's how to lay 'em down...

STEP 1: File clean nails and swipe them with a little nail polish remover to wipe away any oils.

STEP 2: Select the best fitting strip for each nail and remove the backside of the strip.

STEP 3: Gently stretch the strip for a perfect fit and to help prevent hard-to-remove air bubbles. Firmly smooth the strip over the entire nail.

STEP 4: Form a crease around the tip of the nail to remove the excess strip and use a nail file to smooth the tip of nail.

STEP 5: Apply a clear top coat to the nail and the tip. Repeat on remaining nails.

+ Will you try press-on print nails like Snooki?

Julia Stiles in Los Angeles on Jan. 29, Mila Kunis in Los Angeles on Jan. 5.

Julia Stiles and Mila Kunis just wanna have fun. How do we know? Both actresses were recently spotted in twirl-ready dresses—can't you just see them both dancing the night away in these strapless shifts? Julia, who starred in Dexter, wore a beige drop-waisted Max Mara dress to Entertainment Weekly's Pre-Screen Actors Guild Awards party on Jan. 29. For a color burst she paired the frock with glittery peep toe heels by René Caovilla. Meanwhile, Black Swan's Mila Kunis rocked a J. Mendel taupe (nearly green) cocktail dress with nude Brian Atwood platform pumps to the People's Choice Awards on Jan. 5. For us, this style matchup comes down to the shoes. Mila's serious stilettos didn't seem to jive with the flirty/girly vibe of her dress, so Julia's fab dress and her funky ode to the Wizard of Oz heels get our vote. But we want to know what you think?

The next time we need an A-line skirt with three-quarter-length sleeves or opaque tights, we know where to go. British singer/songwriter Adele, whose second studio album 21 will launch on Feb. 22 (it came out in the UK on Jan. 24), has an affliction to the classic pieces. But it's a good thing—the twirly dresses and trendy leggings look great on her curvy physique! We love how this redheaded soul crooner, whose sound is said to be inspired by Etta James and Ella Fitzgerald, often teams her frocks with flirty flats, knee-length toppers and cute updos/ponytails. But what do you think? Do you like Adele's signature look?

Dressing for the Sundance Film Festival, which wrapped over the weekend, required a balancing act. On the one hand, attendees had to consider layering up to keep cozy in the Park City, Utah chill. And on the other hand, actresses had to look pretty and polished for back-to-back press ops and photo calls throughout the week. Here, we look at four stars who nailed the sartorial challenge.

Outdoors, Elizabeth Banks, who promoted My Idiot Brother, rocked a red puffer coat, which had funky fur lining along the hood. For a charity brunch the actress wore a beige sweater with a rounded V-neckline, which she threw over skinny black pants and ankle booties. We love how chic and sophisticated the blocked neutral colors look together. Another keep-the-chill-out ensemble included a trench teamed with a leopard print scarf.

Zooey Deschanel, who also stars in My Idiot Brother, kept toasty with gray ear warmers, a peacoat and rain boots in a lively pattern. Back inside, the actress/singer layered a black sweater with a light gray blazer and a plaid schoolgirl skirt. On another occasion she chose a short-sleeve tiered dress, tights and two-toned shoes.


Kate Bosworth at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival at the "Another Happy Day" premiere on Jan. 23, at the 2011 Creative Coalition Spotlight Initiative Awards on Jan. 24, and at the Samsung Galaxy Tab Lift on Jan. 24 in Park City, Utah.

The black knee-length Chloe dress and the Dolce & Gabbana floor-length floral gown that Kate Bosworth wore while premiering Another Happy Day were our favorite looks of the whole festival. Outdoors, the actress went for a biker chic look which included black combat boots and a mustard dress.

Demi Moore, who showed two movies at Sundance—Margin Call and Another Happy Day, picked a black, voluminous dress by Victoria Beckham for her indoor look. She jazzed up the LBD with little black boots for some dramatic flair. Outside, Mrs. Ashton Kutcher looked weather-appropriate in a muted outfit, which included a gray fur coat, sweater and pants, as well as lace-up booties. Demi kept with the dark theme during another photo op, where she wore a draping jumpsuit with an oversize sweater and boots.

Nicki Minaj performing 'Right Thru Me' on 'SNL' in New York on Jan. 29, and the look from Christian Siriano's Spring 2011 ready-to-wear show.

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?

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.

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.

A handful of hot-dressed celebs, including Jessica Alba and Olivia Wilde, took a break from Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week last night to honor Gucci's Frida Giannini (she's the creative director of the company...aka the head honcho) at a dinner hosted by former 'Vogue Paris' editor in chief Carine Roitfeld. It was a fashion love fest for sure, and these were the looks we fell for...

JESSICA ALBA: Jessica stole the spotlight in a sparkly silver Gucci dress with draping over one shoulder, which she wore with blush-colored heels and a metallic Gucci clutch.

OLIVIA WILDE: The Tron: Legacy star worked a color-block jumpsuit from Gucci's Spring 2011 collection. Olivia teamed the sexy number with a chunky gold necklace, royal purple clutch and a fierce pair of black sandals.

DIANE KRUGER: Being a Chanel muse didn't stop model-turned-actress Diane Kruger from stepping out in a KILLER embellished black and gold frock from Gucci's Spring 2011 collection.

GEMMA ARTERTON: Bond girl Gemma Arterton, chose a more casual ensemble, but the pocketed Gucci dress was none the less chic...especially with those AMAZING nude peep toes!

Willow Smith, the 10-year-old daughter of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, is at it again. The pint-size performer shot her second music video on Jan. 22 in Los Angeles. While there was slightly less hair whipping on the set of "21st Century Girl" than in her first video shoot, for "Whip My Hair," there were layers and layers of brightly colored clothes to ooh and ahh over—which is exactly what we did. Willow piled the style on thick, wearing multiple boot chains, socks, skirts, and necklaces in one look. But our fave item? The "Boys Need Training" tee Willow wore with a cream-colored puff shoulder bolero, leopard tights, yellow shorts and yellow boots. Boys need training, huh? This girl is so wise beyond her years.
