As Hilton’s go, Nicky is the one who seems to have her life together, and we’ve always admired her sense of style. Take for instance her effortless, cool leggings look (we like the outfit, which is a shock considering we fall into the “leggings are not pants” camp), with a leopard coat. We love the whole ensemble, especially her red ballet flats. Unfortunately, her chicness didn’t translate when she got dressed last night for the Domino Pre-Oscar Hollywood Gala Benefit. Hilton showed up in a droopy, 80’s-inspired dress that’s just one puffed sleeve away from being part of the Dynasty wardrobe. Her heavy diamond necklace (which we don’t doubt is real) might be worth a lot, but it adds a “My Nana lent me her jewels!” aspect to the entire thing too. The funny thing is that we’d probably be complimenting Paris Hilton on her modesty if she chose to wear the same exact thing. [Photos: Getty Images/Splash News Online]
So many pre-Oscar parties, so little time! Despite having to hustle from the 3rd Annual Women In Film Pre-Oscar Party in LA to the Hollywood Domino’s 3rd Annual Pre-Oscar Hollywood Gala in Beverly Hills yesterday (what exactly happened three years ago? Did Cali pass a pre-Oscar party tax incentive?), Camilla Belle found the time to totally change her look for each fete. With that kind of party-hopping professionalism, you’d almost think the 10,000 BC star was up for something!
When do we care about Germany’s Echo Awards? When Rihanna shows up wearing a lowwwwww-cut green one-piece suitable for both super-villainy and a night at home with the Golden Girls. Though her performance of “Rude Boy” was pretty awesome—if only because she had to flirt with giant, slow-moving sci-fi robots—Rihanna’s repeated failures to match Lady Gaga in fashion forwardness was underlined by Gaga (who didn’t bother attending) picking up four trophies while Rih-Rih went home with nothing.
Watch Rihanna and the robots shake to “Rude Boy” in the clip below, and soak up our favorite water nymph along with Ke$ha, Sade and Robbie Williams in the red carpet gallery.
Lady Gaga showed off her latest fashion casserole outside of the Buddha Bar in London last night, having pre-recorded a performance for the Jonathan Ross show earlier in the day. We’re not sure what to make of this one: the metal frame is a skirt, yeah, but the wire fencing coming out of her radio antenna headgear? The jacket over the underwear? This just seems sloppy compared to Gaga’s lobster mask last weekend. Now that was a concept.
What don’tReese Witherspoon and Renee Zellweger have in common? Both are currently unattached, exceptionally skinny blonde actresses with broken marriages, countless romantic comedies and an Oscar each to their names, and both showed up in slim mini-dresses to the Vogue party for Vera Wang‘s new store in LA Tuesday. If it wasn’t for Reese’s kids and Renee’s workout pants, we’d think they were the same person. Similarly slim stars like Mila Kunis, Rachel Zoe and Nicky Hilton also attended the event, but—with all respect to Wang herself—everyone knew who the big stars were last night. So who’s looking hotter? Check out the gallery and let us know in our TheFABLife poll.
Curious thing we’ve noticed in the past couple years: Renee Zellweger rarely leaves the house in anything but workout clothes. Sometimes this includes sweatpants and a puffy coat, sometimes a sweatshirt, but 99.9% of the time, she’s out and about while wearing her most prized possessions, the cropped Lycra pant. We watch a lot of makeover shows on TV and have learned a lot from style gurus like Clinton Kelly and Stacey London and their predecessors Trinny and Susannah, and the one thing they always say is even if you’re just doing errands, dress appropriately. Do yourself a favor and wear something flattering, something you don’t wear for the express purpose of wicking away sweat, even. Alas, Renee marches (or jogs) to the beat of her own drum and no matter what city or country she’s in, she has the same uniform. Let’s take a look at Renee and all her various pairs of cropped stretchy pants, shall we?
It’s like a breath of fresh air, seeing a former child actor seamlessly transitioning into polished young adult, and that’s exactly what Dakota Fanning is doing these days. Not only are we impressed with how classy she looks here at the Cinema Audio Society awards, we’re just impressed with her poise in general. Sure, she’s allowed to make an occasional fashion misstep (like the Jenny Humphrey-esque birthday ensemble she was spotted in last week) but at in general, we want to give this girl a hug and tell her we appreciate her modest but still pretty awesome style.

Kim Kardashian was in Vegas this weekend to yet again celebrate the launch of her eponymous fragrance. Dignifying the soireee somewhat was her choice in wardrobe—a tight-fitting dress blessed with crossing straps that barely kept Kim’s Kardashians from spilling out all over the place. We certainly like this more than the liquorice wrap she squeaked around in during Fashion Week. Get a closer look in the gallery below.
Whitney Houston can give all the softly-lit Oprah interviews she wants about her troubled marriage and drug use, and have her tour manager issue all the excuses in the world for her recent, terrible live shows, but let’s face facts. Girlfriend is looking bad lately. If she wants to give the illusion that she’s not a total mess, we suggest maybe easing up on the neon scrunchies and getting some rest before making any more public appearances. Whitney, seen here at the airport in Sydney, Australia, might want to look for the Oceanic terminal so she can board a plane destined to turn her life around (sorry, we’re a little Lost obsessed!).

Having thoroughly stained England at last week’s NME Awards, Courtney Love has zipped down to Milan for Fashion Week, where she displayed might be her new trademark—garish headwear! Love sported a heavy bejeweled headband at the Vogue.it show Friday, green peacock plumage at last night’s Robert Cavalli show and the black seaweed above at the afterparty. If you ever wondered what Stevie Nicks‘s corpse would look like slowly rising out of Crystal Lake in the world’s worst Friday The 13th remake, now you know.
