Dick Clark may be the pioneer (and a darn good one at that), but he wasn’t the only celebrity helping to ring in 2011. Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, and B.o.B were also having a rockin' New Year's Eve. In case you missed them, here’s a cheat sheet of who helped host what and, most important, what they wore.

Shine, sparkle, shimmer...oh my! J. Lo partied with her hubby Marc Anthony at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas wearing a super-shiny form-fitting shift. Showing off her new fab figure in a red-hot dress, J. Hudd shared hosting duties with Fergie, who wore a strapless green studded minidress with a tulle train. Meanwhile Kim Kardashian sparkled in a white glittery dress, which she teamed with classic pumps and smooth, wavy strands.

Even though most of their fellow revelers dressed in above-the-knee cocktail dresses (see above), Rihanna and Kourtney Kardashian chose to go against the grain in long dresses that were equally dazzling. Rihanna, who celebrated at PURE Nightclub at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, wore a striped and mesh dress in a strand-matching hue. Meanwhile Kourtney, who hosted at the Gansevoort Hotel in Miami wore a bilowy, mono-shouldered Bodyamr gown.

It's no wonder Nicki Minaj and Ke$ha wrapped themselves in something warm—both singers wore short shorts on New Year's Eve. While performing on BET 106 and Park's New Year's Eve Party, a green-and blue-haired Nicki wore white fur boots, light blue tights, a jacket and daisy dukes set and a blue and silver bustier. Ke$ha showed off two New Year's Eve looks—preperformance on "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve" show she wore green "2011" glasses and her now-signature blue lipstick; during her performance she wore bright red lipstick with sequins shorts and a white button-up. In between, she threw a full feather jacket around her shoulders to keep from freezing.

Stilletos on New Years? No way! Not for Willow Smith and Avril Lavigne, who both performed on "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve" show wearing snazzy sneakers. Willow wore leopard print high-tops, while Avril wore a one-shoulder leather dress with studded black footwear.

While girls typically show a little skin for NYE in cute cocktail dresses, boys tend to bundle up. Exhibit A and B: B.o.B walked the red carpet at the Jet Nightclub at the Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas wearing a plaid button-up, a red scarf, a leather fur-trimmed jacket and a fur ski hat. Meanwhile, rapper Flo Rida kept his tan puffy coat ON while performing at MTV's "New Year's Bash."

Usher performs in Nashville, Tennessee on Dec. 27.

Usher, who is currently on tour with another one of our favorite hustlers, Trey Songz, rocked an all black ensemble fit for an R&B king at his Dec. 27 concert in Nashville. In an armor-style leather jacket (that's one way to try to protect yourself from am excited fan's high heeled kick), a tank top with multi-buckle details, fingerless leather gloves, cargo pants, stunner shades, and combat boots, the singer wooed the crowd -- his silky smooth voice and killer dance moves were just an added bonus.

Tom Felton at The Wizards World Of Harry Potter At Universal Orlando Resort in Florida on Dec. 28.

A vacationing Tom Felton, who plays the role of Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter film series, proved that there's power in a plaid shirt. While hanging out with the Beauxbatons at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and visiting the Hogwarts Castle at Universal Orlando yesterday, the British actor could have looked like he just rolled out of bed (check the gray sweatpants, blue undershirt, and messy hair). But thanks to his cool blue button-up (and the dressed-to-impress Beauxbatons posing behind him), Tom looks laid-back, comfortable...and ready to ride some roller coasters!

Zachary Levi at the Los Angeles Mission on Dec. 24.

Zachary Levi, star of Chuck and the new animated feature, Tangled, showed off his goodwill over the weekend by slipping on a bright red apron (it matched his navy and crimson striped fitted hoodie perfectly) and serving up meals for the homeless at the Los Angeles Mission on Christmas Eve (Jennifer Love Hewitt and Alyssa Milano were there, too). But this wasn't the first time Zachary volunteered for charity; he's also worked with Stand Up To Cancer and the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance. We don't know about you, but for us there's just SOMETHING about a guy who enjoys volunteering (and posing with really bad Santa Clauses while doing it) that makes us swoon.

Will.i.am, Kanye West, Javier Bardem at the L.A. Lakers Game in Los Angeles on Dec. 25.

Christmas Day’s L.A. Lakers vs. Miami Heat basketball game at the Staples Center in Los Angeles was a star-studded affair—the audience was packed full with some of Hollywood’s most stylish gents, including Black Eyed Peas' Will.i.am, Kanye West and actor Javier Bardem. Will.i.am wore tan pants, a Lakers yellow tee, a leather jacket, and a metal man-bag. Kanye rocked a head-to-toe black ensemble with a silhouette pendant necklace (a downsize from his usual jewelry picks). Meanwhile, Javier Bardem, who was seated with his wife, Penelope Cruz, wore a graphic T-shirt with a black blazer. Sadly, an arena full of fashion-forward fellas/fans—all wearing stunner shades—wasn't enough to pull out a home win for the Lakers. But there's always next time.

It comes as no surprise that actor Ed Westwick likes to show off his chest hair in unbuttoned dress shirts and V-neck tees. What is a little shocking is that his Gossip Girl costar, Penn Badgley, has begun to get in on the dress-to-show-off-pecs look, too. Not that we're complaining—both guys' chests are worthy to be seen, but who rocks the...um, revealing look best? We think it boils down to a matter of preference—do you like a guy with a full chest of hair (Penn) or just a sprinkling of fuzz (Ed)?

Big Boi at the BroBible Winter Elixir concert in New York on Dec. 22.

When Big Boi performed at the BroBible Winter Elixier concert in New York City last night, it looked like he wore as many accessories as he comfortably could. The former Outkast member rocked a brown printed scarf with fur trim, bold red aviator sunglasses with a matching cap, a gold chain necklace, a gold cuff bracelet, a silver watch, and diamond stud earrings (whew!). He kept the rest of his look pretty basic—a black military jacket with matching knicker-esque cargo shorts and long socks. OTT, yes! But we love that Big Boi went ahead and took the all-or-nothing approach to accessorizing his ensemble. It makes us smile.

Jamie Foxx visits the 'Late Show With David Letterman' in New York on Dec. 21.

On his way into the Late Show With David Letterman yesterday, Jamie Foxx showed us how you can get all bundled up in multiple layers without looking like you're from the North Pole. The singer/actor, whose new album Best Night of My Life debuted yesteday, swathed himself in a navy wool sweater, a shiny puff hoodie, and a sherpa-lined gray peacoat. He topped it all off with tortoise shell sunglasses. We love that he chose all different textures for his layered look, but our favorite piece in the ensemble was, without a doubt, the large-lapelled peacoat. So cool (er, hot...warm?)!

Chris Martin of Coldplay performs at Charity Crisis' 'Hidden Gig' in England on Dec. 20.

Boutonnieres usually make us cringe, as they tend to remind us of awkward prom photos. Yikes! But Coldplay frontman Chris Martin pulled off the floral look (without giving us scary flashbacks). Last night while playing a charity show in Newcastle, England, the singer wore fitted black trousers with a matching black vest, a light gray button-up shirt, black sneakers, and a silver pocket chain. The final touch, a red rose boutonniere, looked casual-cool teamed with his rolled up sleeves and loosely knotted tie.

Fabolous at the 2010 Joy to the World Fest in Philadelphia on Dec. 18.

All eyes were on Fabolous when he arrived at the Joy to the World Fest in Philadelphia on Saturday night in his winter-chic ensemble. At the charity event, Fabolous wore a light gray tux with velvet trim, a white button-up shirt with black buttons, and a big satin bow tie. But the rapper didn't just throw on his tux and go (thank goodness!). Fabolous went the extra mile to stand out in a crowd by personalizing the party ensemble with a myriad of one-of-a-kind accessories—a diamond-encrusted watch, a prayer bead bracelet, diamond stud earrings, black suede loafers, and vintage Carrera sunglasses.

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