Haute or Not: Pillbox Hats

By Tanya Leigh Washington on
Marc Jacobs (Imax Tree)Since the days of Jackie O and her fabulous '60s headwear, hats appear to be a lost art in the US. Unless you're Kate Middleton (or perhaps Anna dello Russo), there are too few opportunities these days to wear statement head pieces. Designers like Giorgio Armani and Marc Jacobs, however, are doing their part to change that. While Jacobs was ahead of the game with his Fall 2011 polka-dot aquatics line, Mr. Armani reinforced the accessory with his velvet-clad Armani Priv...Read Full Story

By Alicia Diaz Dennis on
(Getty) Of all the ex-Disney kids, Demi Lovato is the most likely to switch up her look on a whim.

Now that she's a judge on X Factor, Lovato has wandered over to the wild side, sporting hot pink streaks in her ponytail.According to Lovato's 10-year-old little sister Madison De La Garza...Read Full Story

Hot or Not: Miley Cyrus' Bouffant and Blazer

There were sequined turbans, navel-high slits, dresses shockingly sheer. And then there was Christina Ricci's divisive Thakoon frock.Ricci barely stands five feet tall, so her decision to attend the high fashion benefit in a gown with such an impressive wingspan was particularly fearless.

Hot or Not: January Jones' Peplum Print

By Jill Slattery on
January Jones (Getty) January Jones is no stranger to fashion risk-taking. After all, this is the woman who once covered her breasts in red strings at the Golden Globes. Sometimes January's sartorial dauntlessness pays off, and other times it falls flat, as it seems to have done Thursday night at a screening of La Revolution Bleue at the Paris Theatre in NYC. Jones donned a unique dress from designer Mary Katrantzou's Fall 2012 collection that featured an abstract print, off the shoulder...Read Full Story

Hot or Not: Heather Morris' Eclectic Ensemble

By Alicia Diaz Dennis on
(Getty) The majority of the starlets on Glee hire personal stylists to outfit them for the glut of public appearances they're required to make, but we'd be surprised if Heather Morris employs professionals to help her craft her fiercely individual style. On Tuesday, Morris joined her castmates at North Hollywood's Leonard Goldenson Theater outfitted in a coral blouse, a denim bustier tank top, a boho print skirt, and a pair of heels that very much resembled ice skates. Perhaps Heather...Read Full Story

Hot or Not: Crystal Renn Goes Blonde

By Heather Gunderman on

Renn showed up at the New Yorkers for Children spring dinner dance Tuesday night with a brand new 'do, and wow what a difference a little bit (okay, a lot) of bleach makes.
