FASHION SHOW: MARA HOFFMAN

• Hippy-dippy accessories (turbans, John Lennon shades, etc.) gave Mara Hoffman's fall collection a serious bohemian vibe.

• Our personal fave is this slouchy, wrap sweater dress. Cute, right?

• Hard to see, but worth mentioning: to go along with the dark color palette, the models fingertips were dipped in black dye. Weird, but cool.

• Check out caftans, knits, and other cool looks from the collection here.

BACKSTAGE BEAUTY: EYE GLITTER AT VENA CAVA

• The mantra, "a little goes a long way," did not apply at Vena Cava's fall runway show, where makeup artists covered models' lids and bottom lash lines with LOADS of multi-colored glitter.

• Sparkly makeup can quickly and easily go all wrong (hence, the models steady tilted head and hair clips). But Vena Cava teamed the princess-grunge makeup look with leather toppers, suede jackets, and platforms, making it SO right.

FRONT ROW CELEB: BRYANBOY AT RACHEL COMEY

• Fashion blogger Bryanboy arrived at the Rachel Comey fashion show in black leggings, a fuzzy-collared fur coat (tons of attendees have been rocking fur, by the way), a gray striped tee, and 3-D-style sunglasses. But the crowning jewel of his ensemble was his curly fro wig.

Following in the footsteps of Pamela Anderson and Ellen DeGeneres, Jersey Shore's Jenni "JWOWW" Farley had the honor of helping designer Richie Rich close out his New York Fall 2011 Fashion Week show last night at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City. And, OF COURSE, she did it barely clothed. The Seaside castie hammed it up down the runway in a slinky, thong-baring sparkly sheath (right up her alley), Lady Gaga-like heel-less pumps, and a chunky anklet. And Richie? Well, he was Richie.

FASHION SHOW: STEVEN ALAN

• Designer Steven Alan made us want to be nerds (because, you know, we're not) with his fall collection of tweed blazers, scholarly topcoats and striped rompers.

• Whoever styled this show = layering genius.

• Check out the detailing on Alan's pieces—the side buttons on the romper, the fading on the striped leggings. We like. We like.

BEAUTY MOMENT: ALMOST-BLACK NAIL POLISH ON MODELS AT NICHOLAS K

• Just when we thought dark lacquer was outta here...

Pattie Yankee (a celeb manicurist for Dashing Diva with a cool name) created two custom colors for Nicholas K, a deep hunter green and brown with gold flecks polishes.

• P.S. The flatform boots that this model is wearing are killer!

FRONT ROW CELEB: KATRINA BOWDEN IN THE FRONT ROW AT BCBG MAX AZRIA

30 Rock's Katrina Bowden looked too cute at the BCBG Max Azria show, wearing a high-waist miniskirt, puff-sleeved top and black booties. And the pop of candy apple red on her nails is perfection.

• Is the girl sitting beside Katrina with the pretty pink lipstick Tika Sumpter (the actress who plays Raina Thorpe on Gossip Girl)?

Cee Lo Green flashed some feminine flair at the Woman's Day 8th Annual Red Dress Awards on Tuesday night in New York City. The rapper showed up for the celebration in big black rose stud earrings! It wasn't the bling we were used to seeing on Cee Lo, but we loved the unexpected touch. If you're dying to try the look yourself (girls and guys, OBVIOUSLY!), check out the baubles below, including our faves: Flower Stud Earrings from The Limited, which are also black, but come with a sparkly center for some extra pizzazz; and Betsey Johnson's collection of petal pushers.

OF COURSE there were thousands of screaming tweens decked out in sparkly tops and purple nail polish at the Tuesday night Los Angeles premiere of Never Say Never, the new documentary that hits theaters on Feb. 11 and follows Justin Bieber from childhood through his recent tour. But the celeb crowd—young (Jaden and Willow Smith) and "older" (Will.i.am)—was out in full force, too, showing their support for the boy phenom with the iconic hairdo. Here are our favorite purple carpet (it's the Biebs fave hue) looks...

OH BOYS!: Justin, the master of ceremonies, wore a purple dinner jacket with black pants, sneakers, and a button-up shirt. Meanwhile, Will.i.am looked like he just hopped off the stage at the Black Eyed Peas Super Bowl performance in sparkle shoes, dark denim and a Rhythm Nation-style leather jacket. And Chris Brown looks casual-cool in gray jeans, a gold jacket and fresh-from-the-box kicks.

SHORT AND SWEET: Rumored Bieber-crush, Selena Gomez looked stunning in a purple Reem Acra cocktail dress. Cassie Scerbo and Debby Ryan chose micro-minis in classic black.

THE GLITTERATTI: Kelsey Chow chose a flippy silver skirt with a large black sash, and Whitney Port sparkled in a blingy oversize top with an equally drapey black skirt. Chloë Moretz wore a gray ruched and striped Burberry dress with a wide mint green belt.

IN THE BLACK: Ariel Winter, Miley Cyrus and Leona Lewis dressed up basic black pieces to make them uniquely special. Ariel's blazer gets a pop of color over her multicolored minidress. Miley covered her black top with a Winter Kate fringed topper and a skull necklace. And Leona's high-waist pencil skirt gets jazzed up with a sheer lippy half shirt.

DYNAMIC DUOS: The Smiths (Jaden and Willow) and the Jenners (Kendall and Kylie) left the sibling rivalry at home—they all looked great! Jaden stood out in a cropped yellow jacket with matching sneakers, while Willow looked cute in flatforms! The Jenners looked model-esque in flowing, ethereal minidresses.

When we think of "Ladies Who Lunch," we usually think of stiff skirt suits and wide brim hats (is it just us?). A far cry, indeed, from the fashion fete that we spotted during the 2011 Academy Awards Nominations Luncheon, which was held yesterday in Beverly Hills. Celebs, including Michelle Williams and Amy Adams, came decked out in pretty pocketed frocks, look-at-me pumps, and the cutest clutches we've seen in a while. Here are all of the midday looks that caught our eyes...

MICHELLE WILLIAMS: Michelle Williams stepped out in Chanel—a black silk blouse and a beige tweed skirt—plus, black Sergio Rossi shoes.

NATALIE PORTMAN: Mama-to-be Natalie Portman showed off her growing tum in a Lanvin satin teal kimono dress, which she paired with Charles David red satin pumps.

HAILEE STEINFELD: Hailee Steinfeld rocked a little black dress with black heels from Aldo, which we are beginning to think is the tween actress' fave place to stock up on shoes.

JENNIFER LAWRENCE: Jennifer Lawrence buddied her black-mini purse and Roger Vivier satin sandals with a white Chloe chiffon dress.

AMY ADAMS: Amy Adams slipped into a white ruffled Valentino dress, which she teamed with gold platform pumps and a white cuff bracelet. Perfection.

Nicky Hilton, Heidi Klum, and Louise Roe celebrate Lucky's March 2011 issue on Feb. 3, 2011.

We're only halfway through winter, but spring was in the air last Thursday as celebrities descended upon the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood for Lucky's March 2011 launch party. A handful of fashionable femmes pulled out their prettiest above-the-knee prints for the affair, including March cover girl Heidi Klum, who rocked a fuchsia Rachel Roy shift with strappy Jimmy Choo sandals. Meanwhile, Nicky Hilton opted for a one-shoulder blue number with a thick black waistband, which she wore with black pumps. Fashion journalist Louise Roe went for a tribal look in a flowy green dress and chained headpiece.

Pair of Kings star Kelsey Chow's blue frock had a big circular pattern, which balanced the shorter shift nicely, while Community's Gillian Jacob looked glam in a strapless navy, silver and yellow dress. Actress Izabella Miko looked all-out girly in a coral, three-quarter-sleeve dress, which she paired with a thick white belt. If you weren't itching for warmer temps by now, this spring fashion sneak peek probably did the job.

Wear your team's colors to show your support during your Super Bowl party with the BOBI Supreme Jersey Button Up Dress in Eco, the ASOS Drapey Mini Dress in Olive, or the BCBGeneration Belted Shirt Dress in Black.

Whether you're a fan or not, you'll more than likely be watching the matchup between the Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers, which goes down in Dallas this Sunday. But who says you have to go overboard with the team jersey, the hat, the sweats, the socks, the watch, the pom-poms? Granted, we won't hold it against you if that's how you roll on Super Bowl Sunday—but if you want to show your team spirit in subtler ways, here's how...

Go Packers!
Choose a cargo-style hunter green dress, like this BOBI Supreme Jersey Button Up Dress in Eco (RevolveClothing.com, $52) and pile on a wrist-full of gold bangles for good measure.

Go Steelers!
Pull out a casual Little Black Dress like this BCBGeneration Belted Shirt Dress (BCBG.com, $138), and add hints of color—matte gold shoes, a chunky red ring, or a gold necklace.

Go Commercials!
If you could care less about the Super Bowl, but are totally into the commercials, the halftime show (the Black Eyed Peas are performing by the way), or the wings, dress in a team-neutral color. In this case, it's gold—both Green Bay and Pittsburgh have the hue in their helmets. Try something like this: ASOS Drapey Mini Dress in Olive (Asos.com, $57.38).

Matthew Morrison, LL Cool J, and John Krasinski on the SAG Awards red carpet on Jan. 30.

Sometimes the simplest outfit choices are the ones that catch our eyes the most. No blingy chains. No crazy colored hair. No wild patterns. Such was the case with Glee's Matthew Morrison, NCSI's LL Cool J, and The Office's John Krasinski, who each picked black-on-black-on-black monochrome suits to wear to the 2011 Screen Actors Guild Awards show last night. While LL Cool J and Krasinski (in Prada) kept their looks traditional by wearing ties, Matthew (in Prada) left his neck gear at home for a more laid back (but just-as-chic) vibe. For the fellas, an all-black suit is what a "Little Black Dress" is for the ladies—it's the genius go-to that's almost impossible to look bad in, which is why we declare all three actors red carpet winners. But, what do you think?

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.

ELIZABETH BANKS:

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:

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:

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:

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.

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