While press touring across the pond, Nicki Minaj introduced her British fans to her latest album, "Pink Friday," plus a handful of new wild-and-crazy 'dos. No longer are Nicki's strands simply dipped in bright hues, or acid washed then dyed purple/yellow/orange/green/etc. For better or worse, she's started playing around with shapes, sizes, cuts, and patterns, too.

Pink Presario
Oustide of her London hotel, Nicki was spotted in an over-the-top pink jumpsuit, bracelet-size purple hoop earrings, and this cotton candy-colored curly beehive.

Blonde Bombshell
Nicki teamed a heavy-banged platinum 'do with a heavy set of faux lashes. The cascade of curls gave this look serious Barbie Doll status.

Camouflage Fringe
We couldn't quite tell if Nicki was going for a camo look or a colorful leopard look with this style, which she wore with a crisp white dress and a statement-making gold necklace.

+ You've seen the latest, so which new 'do should Nicki Minaj put on repeat?

Natalie Portman and Kim Kardashian recently wore the same one-shoulder black Lanvin for H&M dress, which apparently sold out like hotcakes when it became available to the masses, out and about. Both stars accessorized similarly with black round toe pumps, but they each chose very different hair and makeup looks. Black Swan star Natalie wore her frock with a swipe of matte red lipstick and a smooth side chignon to the Gotham Independent Film Awards on Nov. 29. Nearly two months later, Kim wore the sultry shift with her hair down and her signature smoky eye. The dress flatters both celebs' fab figures, but Natalie gets our vote this time around—a red lip paired with ANYTHING makes us weak in the knees. But, what do you think?

+ Who wore Lanvin for H&M better—Natalie Portman or Kim Kardashian?

Kristen Stewart in the 'Vogue' February 2011 Issue.

Twilight's Kristen Stewart took a brief hiatus from her dark side to return to her blonde roots for the February cover of Vogue. Did the actress pull it off? Heck yeah! Even though it's been years since the natural blonde has rocked lighter locks (you can thank the brown-haired "Bella" for that!), Kristen seems to have maintained her badass vibe, despite the bubbly blonde dye job. But if you think about it, since her style is so low-maintenance/unfussy, Kristen can wear almost any hair hue—from pitch black, to auburn, to rich brown—and look like she was born with it.

Jersey Shore's Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is a bona fide author, and she wants the world to know. The petite reality star has been traveling from coast to coast all week, making pit stops at the Late Show With David Letterman and the Today Show, to promote her new novel, A Shore Thing. The debut book is a fictional depiction of a young woman (with big hair and a dark tan) looking for boardwalk lovin'. Hmm, sounds familiar. Check out how Snooks dressed to exude the vibe of each city she did signings in.

In an all black, skater-girl ensemble (leggings, tunic, fingerless gloves, and chunky jewelry), Snooki kicked off her book tour on Jan. 6 at the Barnes & Noble at The Grove in Los Angeles.

You can take the girl out of Jersey, but you can't take the Jersey out of the girl. At the Barnes & Noble in Brick, New Jersey, Snooki rocked a low-cut gold and tan sequins frock with black booties.

At a book signing at the Columbus Circle Borders in New York City, Snooki posed in a bright pink ruffled dress, huge hoop earrings, and a smirk with Big Apple attitude.

When it comes to choosing the best-dressed actresses at awards shows, everyone's a critic. But, we have a feeling that this fab four will be on the top of nearly every 2011 Golden Globe Awards "hot" list out there. And, here's why...

DIANNA AGRON: Glee girl Dianna Agron looked picture perfect in a strapless J. Mendel dress, which she partnered with a Cathy Waterman necklace and an adorable gold Ferragamo clutch. We thought the barrette she slipped into her hair was a nice feminine touch.

ANNE HATHAWAY: It's not easy to pull off head-to-toe sequins, but Anne Hathaway did it with this Armani Prive amber-colored gown. The trick? With all that bling, she kept her hair and makeup simple and polished.

MILA KUNIS: Black Swan's Mila Kunis rocked a green one-shoulder Vera Wang gown down the red carpet. She teamed the stunning dress with a few gold bangles and a tres chic french roll in her hair.

LEIGHTON MEESTER: Actress Leighton Meester, who stars in Country Strong and Gossip Girl, looked GORGEOUS in a classic/vintage-y Burberry Prorsum slitted dress, which she wore with Jimmy Choo shoes, Cathy Waterman hoop earrings, and a Louis Vuitton clutch.

Cast members from hit Fox shows, including Glee and House, flocked to Villa Sorriso in Pasadena, California, yesterday for the network's winter soiree. The red carpet was full of dressy-casual ensembles that were personalized with subtle accessories and/or fierce poses. Here are our fave looks of the night...

Heather Morris, who plays Brittany on Glee, showed off her dancer's physique in a black velvet minidress with matching sandals and bouncy curls. House's Amber Tamblyn added a pop of color to the procession line in a vivid purple shirt dress, which she teamed with a black blazer, belt and pair of tights. Meanwhile, another Glee star, Dianna Agron, looked tres chic in the black Prada scoopneck frock she paired with a super-skinny red belt.

Kevin McHale from Glee donned black pants slouched into boots, a gray tee, blazer with a bow tie corsage, and...is that a new pair of readers? Actor Elijah Wood added a rugged touch to his jacket and skinny tie combo by adding to it ink-dark denim. Another "jeanious," Glee's Mark Salling teamed his denim with a blazer and a plaid button-up.

Leighton Meester in 'Seventeen' magazine's February 2011 issue.

It's no secret that Gossip Girl Leighton Meester loves clothes (on and off screen). So when The Seven sat down to interview the Florida native on the set of her Seventeen magazine February cover shoot (side note: Don't you just love the Versus Spring 2011 looks she's sporting in the magazine?), we weren't surprised when the convo turned to fashion.

"I couldn't always afford to have that all the time, so now it's nice—I can try different things. I like to experiment," said Leighton. Oh, and experiment does she! Remember the mens-inspired Thom Browne suit she wore with Salvatore Ferragamo heels to the Gotham Independent Film Awards in November? And the Marchesa butt-baring lace romper she wore to the Harry Winston Court of Jewels event the same month? Check out the video below for more on Leighton's fearless sense of fashion.

Just because it's cold (er, FREEZING) in many parts of the country doesn't mean we can't all rock a cute pair of short-shorts every now and then. But, we can't just throw on some floral board shorts over bare legs and not expect a few "what-the-heck-are-you-wearing" stares. Stay warm and look cool with these tips...

Winter white works for dresses but not so much for shorts. Team a dark pair of short-shorts with black tights and dark shoes, like The Hills star/fashion designer Lauren Conrad did when she hit up the Young Hollywood Studio in Los Angeles on Jan. 7.

Nicole Richie, Lucky magazine's February 2011 cover girl, teamed a striped top and leopard print hat with velvet shorts, and you should too. It's not rocket science—the thicker/plusher the fabric, the warmer they'll keep your tush.

There's no better topper to wear with winter shorts than a sweater. Need proof? For the London Film Festival in October, model Alexa Chung partnered her leather shorts with a slouchy gray cable knit sweater. Totes adorbs!

+ Which pair of cozy shorts would you wear this winter — Lauren's, Nicole's, or Alexa's?

Gossip Girl Jessica Szohr was spotted at C&C Studios in New York City yesterday wearing the cutest little striped dress with magenta peep toes. But the dress wasn't the main attraction. The actress was there to launch SoBe Lifewater and unveil the promotional campaign she stars in for the beverage company. The ad shows a svelte Jessica posing near a fire hydrant in her birthday suit (with strategically placed paint made to look like lizard skin). Shocking marketing? Not really. This isn't the first time SoBe asked a celeb to model in the buff (excuse us, in a "skinsuit")—Twilight's Ashley Greene was the company's spokesperson last year.

Minka Kelly and Leighton Meester at the 2011 People's Choice Awards on Jan. 5.

Is it just us or could actresses Minka Kelly and Leighton Meester pass for siblings? The similarities are striking! Even if we leave their long brown hair and flawless complexions out of the equation, both beauties star in TV shows (Minka on Friday Night Lights and Parenthood, and Leighton on Gossip Girl). And now we find out that they are costarring in The Roommate, a thriller in which Leighton plays a coed obsessed with Minka's character. The film hits theaters on Feb. 4. Oh, but the likenesses don't stop at the silver screen. They may not be blood sisters, but these two celebs are definitely style sisters. Check out the resemblances in their wardrobes...starting with what they wore to the People's Choice Awards on Jan. 5 (Minka wore a Vivienne Westwood bustier minidress, while Leighton donned a similarly styled Vionnet dress with floral appliqués).

For movie screenings, these two had the same look in mind. Minka wore a Zero Maria + Cornejo sleeveless print dress with Jimmy Choo slingbacks to the Dec. 14 screening of Country Strong, which features Leighton. And for the premiere of Date Night on April 6, Leighton slipped into a Giambattista Vali dress and strappy PHI shoes.

Proving ruffles and prints DO mix, Minka rocked a flirty Dior dress to the premiere of (500) Days of Summer. Leighton ALSO wore Dior—a short floral dress—for the Country Strong screening (yes, the same premiere that Minka wore her V-neck minidress to in the pic above).

Minka looked amazing in a beige Marchesa dress full of lace, bows and draping. Meanwhile, Leighton wore a just-as-girly Marc Jacobs dress this past fall.

Minka went for the gold in a gilded dress with a deep V-neck with matching strappy shoes, and Leighton went for the silver in an Elie Saab powdery tulle cocktail dress with matching suede peep-toe platforms.

It's no surprise these two peas-in-a-pod would both forgo a traditional structured jacket for something more throw-it-on-and-go. Minka wore an army-style blazer with tights and a tee to the William Rast for Target launch event on Dec. 11, while Leighton wore a sheer Louis Vuitton jacket over a bright skirt and top ensemble a year ago.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
