If there's one trend we truly HEART for late summer and early fall, it's bold color, specifically red. Not only does it brighten everything, it brightens everyone, including two of our Hollywood style faves, Rachel Bilson and Katie Holmes. Both stepped out in their best fire-engine finery recently, and instead of going for the predictable lady-in-red dress aesthetic, these two fash mavericks chose—gasp—PANTS. Thus, the age-old question must be posed: Who wore the red pants trend best?

Zooey Deschanel, Chelsea Hobbs, and Holland Roden wear red lips at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards.

Whoa. Fire. The ladies were smoking hot on the 2011 Teen Choice Awards' blue carpet last night. And Zooey Deschanel, Chelsea Hobbs, and Holland Roden took it a step further to sport super sultry fire-engine-red matte lips with their feminine frocks. The triptych of beauties weren't afraid to go bold, a move we DEFINITELY applaud. They prove that a bright lip is more versatile than we thought—whether you have chestnut hair and blue eyes or red hair and hazel eyes, a scarlet lip looks UH-MAZING as the cherry on top of any beauty look.

Formerly scoffed by many as the slightly less-beloved long-legged cousin of the romper, the elusive JUMPSUIT is working its way to becoming a commonly seen and widely accepted silhouette. That's right. The utilitarian onesie is no longer the exclusive uniform of skydivers and motorcycle racers. Nor is it relegated to the stage as a fanciful performance outfit in the form of a neon spandex catsuit. Nope. The jumpsuit is ready for real life where it can roam free in the wild of city sidewalks and cul-de-sac barbeques.

Riding the wave of the '90s revival alongside Justin Bieber and Willow Smith's classic sitcom t-shirts, Lady Gaga's vintage Versace, and Nickelodeon's '90s Are All That, the jumpsuit is cleaning up its act this time around, abandoning the painted-on plastic/latex/PVC of the nineties for more sophisticated, relaxed cuts and easy, (PRAISE BE) breathable fabrics. Sure, you end up basically naked every time you have to use the bathroom, but the refreshing figuration is WORTH IT.

Stars, guys. They are nothing like us, gaseous and burning billions of light years away. (We mean the celestial balls of light...not celebrities, of course.) The galaxy, with its multitude of colors and psychedelics is perfect sartorial inspiration—dark but not black, eye-catching but not garish. After Christopher Kane got galaxial for his 2011 resort collection (which has been worn by everyone from Anne Hathaway to Carey Mulligan, above), seeing stars on the red carpet has gotten easier than seeing stars on the red carpet.

Carey's Christopher Kane gown is elegant but not dowdy; the full-bodied skirt and high neck are complemented by the fun, spaced-out print. (Also, any shoes work because the dress itself literally has EVERY color in the spectrum emblazoned on the fabric.) Then Ellie Goulding showed up to her Best Buy performance in a Topshop high-button capelet/blouse that's borrowed straight from NASA for a supernova that is more beautiful than any paisley or plaid or print we've ever seen. And Britain's it-girl Alexa Chung has been spotted out in Kane's resort collection loads of times, but this leather bustier dress is one of our favorites, simply because it is so space-age mod. The stolen-from-satellites star print is both fun and thoughtful; accordingly, we've picked our favorite starry-eyed looks below.

Summer slipper trend

In our humble opinion, the only good thing about summer coming to an end is looking forward to fall fashion trends, and our favorite trend so far—one that is perfect for transitioning into the new season—is the penny loafer slash smoking slipper. In a sea of sky-high platforms (which can result in embarrassing pratfalls), we're psyched that flat shoes are finally making a comeback as seen on all kinds of fashion mavens and celebrity ravens. Even though some may deem this a more practical footwear option, we see it as an opportunity to make an edgier, more comfortable statement. Also? Flats are versatile!

We love how Kelly Osbourne turns a gigantic fashion NO into a resounding YES by pairing her patent pennies with a (gasp!) long skirt. Fashion police always seem to want to arrest anyone not pairing ladylike heels with a skirt but we say hush the po-lice! This maxi and midriff combo looks positively perfect on petite n' pretty Kelly O, and we love how the studded leather jacket rocks out the overall eighties rebel look. If you want to punch up your jeans n' t-shirt uniform, do as Glee's Naya Rivera does and change it up with some two-tone loafs. Besides looking super cute, these are great for shopping excursions when you're sick of lacing up your sneakers after too many try-on sessions. What about flats for a night out you say? No problem! Pixie Lott's choice of tasseled, black leather slippers with a see-through shirt and blazer plus shorts ensemble is the perfect example of mashing up trends for evening and looking feminine while doing it. In fact, this look is so spot-on it works for both Saturday night and during the week with a skirt. Throw some tights on and you're good to go for fall, too!

Aside from the abundance of lace that's been dominating the red carpet this summer, another see-through trend has recently emerged: the visible bra. We're not talking a peekaboo strap, either, we're talking a full-on, in yo' face, "here's my bra!" statement. Fashion darlings from Kristen Stewart to Gwen Stefani nail it. So what's their secret to taking this look from taboo to trend? It's all in choosing the right undergarments, ladies. First of all, you must be covered. COMPLETELY covered. This look is about snazz not sleaze, so save the lace for over not under.

Evol Heist ‘Death Grip’ Skeleton Bracelet.

When the Dsquared "Spine Heels" showed up on girl Ciara, we were oddly entranced and slightly grossed out in a fun way. Yes, the bony heel felt like it was trying too hard, but it also made a bit of sense. But when worn as a meta-statement outlining your actual skeleton (YOUR INSIDE IS BEING WORN ON YOUR OUTSIDE), like this incredible laser cut-out hand armor (?) from Evol Heist, it is impossible not to notice: bones are where the heart is. And with eyes and skulls being a thing, designers of the raddest sort are wondering why not bones? Those sticky, structural-but-not-geometric internal structural beams point out what sickly, organic meatbags we all actually are. And now that we've got bones on the brain, we see them everywhere we go.

Beyoncé performing at the Glastonbury Festival, June 26, 2011, Gwen Stefani at Cannes Film Festival on May 16, 2011, and Rihanna performing during her Loud tour in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on June 16, 2011.

Make no mistake: Sometimes I'm frustrated to be shackled to my arsenal of heated hair wands. I'm a curly girl fiending for the smoothness of a well-ironed strand and have surely spent (or wasted, depending on your point of view) at least a year of my life in front of the mirror perfecting the craft. Really, you should see my biceps. BUT I might be convinced to turn over a new leaf based on the showstopping volumized 'dos that are trending lately à la Beyoncé at Glastonbury earlier this week, Gwen Stefani at Cannes last month, and Rihanna ruling hard on her Loud tour. YUM.

Ashley Bell, Emma Watson, and Katie Cassidy at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards in Universal City, California on June 5, 2011.

Nothing quite says, "Summer's Here" like a perfectly fitted crisp white dress. Ashley Bell, Emma Watson, and Katie Cassidy all sported summery ensembles that popped on the MTV Movie Awards red carpet without looking like brides-to-be. Each gorgeous lady kept their accessories minimal and let their intricate gowns do ALL the talking.

The Last Exorcism star and Best Scared-As-S**t Performance nominee Ashley Bell opted for a lace overlay Club Monaco dress with an incredibly flattering sweetheart neckline and soft pleats, which oozed youthful gorgeousness. She swept her hair up in a loose side chignon to show off her to-die-for décolletage and accessorized with white and gold drop earrings, gold bangles, and a gold ring. The best part? Her SHOES!! Her beige satin platform peep-toe ankle-strap pumps give us juuuust a hint of sexy in her sweet ensemble, which we LOVE.

We'd like to think the Movie Awards are thee premiere red carpet event of the summer, and it's especially excellent to see stars getting their laid-back game on right in the L.A. heat. The guys and the gals both get a little more funky on our red carpet, and after perusing the awards show trends of the last few months, we have some Technicolored predictions to make about the beauty vibe at the Gibson Amphitheatre. When competing with idols such as Kristen and James or Selena and Justin, one must come most correctly: So from poppy pastel eyes and lips that can be seen for miles, we've got our beauty trend picks laid out for Sunday night.

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