We first found Alexander Skarsgård via his role as the super-steamy vampire Eric Northman on True Blood, then we spotted him on the red carpet acing the "understated sexy" look. Last night at a Tom Ford store opening in Beverly Hills, we were once again reminded why the Swedish actor caught our eye in the first place. It's ALL about the clothes (and maybe a little about the smile). Alexander wore a fitted black suit, a black and white checkered shirt, a textured black tie, and lace-up oxfords. We love how he kept his look clean and sharp, allowing the pop of pattern in his shirt to suggest, "Hey, check me out!" Don't worry Alexander, we definitely did.

Elijah Wood proves that newer isn't always better when it comes to clothes. The 30-year-old actor, who starred in the Lord of the Rings series, proudly stepped out in some scuffed-up vintage kicks for the Vanity Fair Campaign in Hollywood last night. He teamed the brown booties with a beige button-up, skinny gray satin tie, a blue velvet blazer, and super-dark skinny jeans. We love his anything-but-black ensemble, with its rich mix of textures and colors! And his shoes added character (shiny ones just wouldn't have been the same). Well done Frodo, er, Elijah.

We couldn't help but swoon when White Collar star Matthew Bomer arrived at the 13th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards in Beverly Hills last night. That effortlessly chic hair! That timeless tux! Those piercing blue eyes! Siighhh. We love how he paired his tux with a crisp white shirt and skinny satin tie, but kept his accessories simple with black patent oxford shoes and a white pocket square (that charming smirk isn't bad either!). So what's better than a dreamboat who can dress? We'll get back to you on that one...

Jared Leto at the mtvU Campus Invasion Music Festival in Tampa on Oct. 15, and Britney Spears and her backup dancers in the 'Hold It Against Me' video.

It's a battle of the multi-zippered pants! We knew we recognized the fitted white jeans that Britney Spears' backup dancers were getting down in for her new "Hold It Against Me" music video. 30 Seconds to Mars frontman Jared Leto first wore the Tripp slacks ($65, in October while performing at the mtvU Campus Invasion Music Festival in Tampa. While Britney's boys boogied with the removable bondage straps and bum flap intact, we prefer Jared's more streamlined/less fussy look without them. What do you think?

+ Who wore tight white jeans better — Jared Leto or Britney's backup dancers?

Kanye West performs at the NBA All-Star game halftime show in L.A. on Feb. 20, Cee Lo Green performs at the NBA All-Star Saturday Night in L.A. on Feb. 19, and Lenny Kravitz performs at the NBA All-Star game in L.A. on Feb. 20.

It was a star-studded (and stylish) NBA All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles! Three of our favorite musicians (Kanye West, Cee Lo Green, and Lenny Kravitz) hit the stage in some superchic ensembles. Kanye sported head-to-toe red in a crew neck tee, zip-up hooded vest, shiny skinny jeans with exposed zippers, layers upon layers of gold chains, a pair of gold watches, and aviator sunglasses. Cee Lo wore an embellished green Adidas tracksuit, white tee, matching Adidas shell top sneakers, a shimmering pinky ring, and circular shades. Lenny Kravitz kept his look basic in a black V-neck tank, black leather vest, black skinny jeans, a few silver necklaces, and aviator sunglasses. All three crooners proved that monochrome (in any hue) works wonders, but we think Kanye West stole the show! What are your thoughts?

+ Who dressed best during their NBA All-Star performance — Kanye West, Cee Lo Green, or Lenny Kravitz?

Drake at 'The LeBrons' preview party in Hollywood on Feb. 17.

Rapper (and total hottie!) Drake arrived at a private preview party for The LeBrons in Hollywood last night wearing a slouchy-but-suave ensemble. Just like at his Grammys performance, he kept his look casual in a black crew neck tee, black and white graphic hoodie with bright green lining, black leather jacket, black jeans, lace-up boots, and a pair of retro-looking Giorgio Armani shades. If it wasn't for his serious swagger (the lime lining and the nighttime shades also help), Drake could have been mistaken for the average "Joe Schmo" walking down the street. Sooooo, THIS is what star power looks like.

Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey at the 'Unknown' premiere in L.A. on Feb. 16.

When Robert Downey Jr. arrived at the Unknown premiere last night in Los Angeles with his producer wife, only three words came to mind—Hot. For. Teacher! That sweater, those glasses—we'd swoon if our geology professor arrived to class looking THIS polished. Robert (er, Mr. Downey?) wore a gray suit, crisp white button-up shirt, black tie with cube graphics, a burgundy sweater, black framed glasses, and black lace-up shoes. We love his not-too-thick frames paired with his tousled tresses, which make his look more chic, less geek. But what do you think?

Mark Ronson at the Brit Awards and at the Warchild after-party in London on Feb. 15.

When DJ/producer/musician Mark Ronson arrived at the Brit Awards last night, we were drawn to his cool '80s aesthetic! And since we know that he doesn't spend a lot of time getting ready in the morning, it made us even more envious of his effortlessly chic style. Last night he wore a slate gray double-breasted suit, white button-up shirt, skinny black tie, and white oxfords. Later at an after-party, he ditched the jacket and tie to reveal a tailored white button-up shirt and belt. We're also digging the platinum tips in Mark's hair. Perhaps he is stealing style cues from his sister (and fashion designer) Charlotte Ronson—or maybe he's creating some chic competition! What do you think?

Christine Hendricks and Geoffrey Arend at New York Fashion Week and at the 'All-Star Superman' premiere in New York on Feb. 14.

Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks usually steals the spotlight with her fiery red hair and to-die-for curves. But lately we can't keep our eyes off her handsome hubby, Geoffrey Arend. On Valentine's Day the (500) Days Of Summer star was spotted at New York Fashion Week wearing a grayish-green blazer, purple and white checkered shirt, black and purple striped bow tie, skinny jeans, and brown slip-on wingtip shoes. Then, at an All-Star Superman premiere that same night, he wore the same shirt, pants and bow tie, but updated his look with a chic black coat, beige V-neck sweater, and black lace-up shoes. We are totally feeling Geoffrey's flawless transition from day to night, but we especially love his Fashion Week ensemble! The snug blazer with skinny jeans make him a style standout—even at one of the biggest style conventions of the year!

+ Which one of Geoffrey Arend's looks do you like better—day or night?

The suits were out in full force at last night's 53rd Annual Grammy Awards, and they were anything but stiff. From classic three-piece ensembles to bright winter white, the guys (and one girl) who stepped out in formal wear did it with some serious swagger.

GLEE GUYS GET-UPS: The Glee cast (who were nominated for Best Compilation Soundtrack Album and Best Pop Performance by a Group) may have come up empty handed, but the fellas certainly won in the fashion category. Chord Overstreet and Matthew Morrison both teamed their Dolce & Gabbana suits with skinny black ties. Meanwhile, Darren Criss (in District Homme) and Kevin McHale both bucked the black suit trend for gray and white, respectively.

SUITS WITH A TWIST: Leave it to Russell Brand, Justin Bieber, B.o.B, and Ricky Martin to bring the individuality. Russell wore a one-button peak label Giorgio Armani gunmetal gray suit with a black shirt and a black tie. The Biebs wore a neck-to-toe white D&G outfit, while rapper B.o.B added more red to the crimson carpet in a cherry blazer that he paired with studded jeans and a white button-up. Meanwhile, Ricky rocked a Giorgio Armani shawl collar evening jacket with skinny tie, silver jeggings and Emporio Armani lace-up boots.

ALL BLACK EVERYTHING: No matter the form, these celebs know you can't go wrong in black. The Situation wore black denim with a dark mandarin-collared blazer, while Janelle Monae sparkled in a fitted Dolce & Gabbana suit. Drake went with his usual triple black ensemble in a Giorgio Armani tux, which he partnered with a glittering bowtie. And, Lenny Kravitz arrived draped in a slouchy leather vest and fitted/cuffed leather pants.
