Who are Hollywood's next big names? These 10 fresh faces have major films or TV shows under their belts, and a select few have already been feted at this year's award shows. Whether they snagged statues or not, all have proven to be style stars with gorgeous red-carpet gowns and unique off-duty looks. Trust us: these are the ones to watch in 2010.
If the name Dakota Fanning conjures up images of a wide-eyed child star with blond braids and Mary Janes, it's time to think again. After years of children's fare, 16-year old Fanning recently starred as punk rocker Cherie Currie in The Runaways, a biopic of rock star-proportions with cover girl Kristen Stewart playing Joan Jett. Fanning has channeled her new mature role on the red carpet with lots of black, like this stunning Valentino lace mini (paired with soaring burgundy heels) and the chic black blazer-and-skinny pants combo she wore at Sundance. Savvy style is matched by smart career moves: Fanning's next film is none

It's a fact: One in every eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. While researchers search for a cure, experts agree with Larry Norton, deputy physician in chief for breast-cancer programs and the medical director of the Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, that "it's very clear that eating a healthy diet and maintaining a normal body weight has a huge impact on breast-cancer incidence." Here are some guidelines.Read More »from Eat This to Prevent Breast Cancer
Can counterfeit perfumes harm your health?
Maintain a healthy weight. Colleen Doyle, director of nutrition and physical activity for the American Cancer Society, says keeping your body mass index between 18.5 and 24.9 and exercise regularly (at least 30 minutes five days a week) can reduce your risk by 10 to 25 percent. With the ACS linking one third of the more than 550,000 cancer deaths a year in part to excess weight, poor diet, and physical inactivity, it's a critical factor.
Get diet tips specific to your age

It's no secret that a diet of sweets and fried foods will lead to the dreaded muffin top. But what should you eat to keep trim and strong? Here's something you may not know: What works for women in their 20s will not necessarily work for women in their 40s, 50s, and beyond. Here, how to be healthy in each decade.
In Your 20s
"Your body is in build-up mode," says Ashley Koff, a dietician in Los Angeles. "Having a balanced eating routine will improve your weight and health." (Try out a virtual body makeover to see how you'd look if you lost or gained weight!)
Let go of your college ways. Still eating your first meal at 3:00 p.m.? Not a good idea if you're trying to lose weight. "Eating every three to four hours will maintain optimal metabolic efficiency," advises Stephen Gullo, president of New York's Center for Health and Weight Sciences. And forget about the drive-through. "You cut out extra salts, sugars, and preservatives when you cook at home," saysRead More »from Diet Tips for Each Decade
Making your locks look their most luscious is easy if you go for cut, color, and products that are appropriate for your age. Read on to find out how to have beautiful hair in your 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, and beyond.Read More »from 10 Tips for Pretty Hair at Any Age
IN YOUR 20s: HAVE FUN
1. Take a cue from Scarlett Johansson by experimenting with different shades and lengths. "She's a great example of how to change your color," explains her colorist, Negin Zand. "Even though I've taken her hair to extremes, it always looks natural." Adds Kate Bosworth's colorist, Tracey Cunningham, "Whichever hue you try, be sure it's vibrant." We like John Frieda Luminous Color Glaze ($9.99). As for your cut, "Keep it youthful by adding texture to shorter looks and layers from the chin down for longer locks," says Natalie Portman's stylist, Mark Townsend.
IN YOUR 30s AND 40s: GO FOR POLISH
2. Take time to groom."You can't get away with bed head anymore," advises Townsend. "Your hair should be soft and touchable." Try Pantene Pro-V Smooth Humidity
Have you ever looked back on photos from your younger days and wondered, "Why did I EVER wear that?" It can be comforting to know that as we age, we also tend to become more in-tune to our sense of style and what truly flatters our bodies.Read More »from Do You Get More Stylish with Age?
"Aging gracefully" is also something a few of our favorite ladies in Hollywood have mastered - and Demi Moore just might take the cake. While star stylists certainly help, we can't discount the fact that she has a knack for making heads turn and women half her age jealous. Check out these photos of Demi through the years and see how she's become more stylish with time.
A young Demi Moore, age 22, strikes a pose in an ensemble that was very on-trend for the era: palazzo pants, a roomy blazer, and a floppy hat. She has not yet been anointed a member of Hollywood's Brat Pack, but she has a definitive fashion personality.

1. Do Your Own Blowout
Weekly blowouts can really add up, but you can replicate a salon-worthy 'do with big Velcro rollers. For maximum bounce, use a volumizer, then blow hair straight with a round brush. Follow by placing sections in big rollers (we like RickyCare Fusion Rollers, at just $6.99 for six). Then Spritz with a hair spray and let it set for 10 minutes. You'll walk out of the house like you just walked out of the salon.
Get shiny, bouncy hair, no matter what your age.
2. High-Performing Mascara
Expensive mascaras that promise the world (or at least your longest, fullest lashes) are tempting, but you can get the same look without spending the same money. We were blown away by L'Oréal Paris Extra-Volume Collagen Mascara ($7.95). Its lengthening, lash-building formula works just as well as our higher-priced,
Sandra Bullock wants us to think she's no big deal. In fact, the self-deprecation and this-isn't-as-important-as-it-looks attitude is part of her enduring popularity.
But the Best Actress winner can't fool us. She looked simply stunning on the red carpet and we even felt a pang of pride when she eloquently accepted her very first Oscar. She is important, she is gifted, but she's also completely real.
And as she gets older, her life just gets better. She spent her 20s worrying and her 30s working nonstop. Now in her 40s, Sandra is living life her way. Her down-to-Earth lifestyle can even teach us a thing or two about enjoying the little things in life.
Here's what aging has taught her:
Remember to Have Fun
"Right now, I'm kind of getting into my childhood," says Bullock. "I didn't have a teenage or early-20s experience that was free and without worry. I missed the screw-everything, have-a-good-time phase. I was worried that if I didn't stay on track and work, work, work,

"My favorite trick for glowing skin is to apply shimmer, not glitter, right above the bow of my lip and just a touch down my nose," says Kim Kardashian. And for days she's not feeling her best, she relies on LnA leggings. "I'll wear them under a dress because they hold me in so much.

"The key to this sexy look is not to overdo it," says Mara Roszak, a Tresemmé celebrity stylist who works with Zoë Saldana. We like spritzing Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray ($22) to boost natural texture. And to enhance the shape of your waves, finish with Tresemmé Anti-Frizz Secret Smoothing Crème ($4.99).

"It's so chic and simple," says Kate Hudson's mane man, David Babaii, of her pretty but messy style. "Start with David Babaii for WildAid Bohemian Beach Spray [$9.99] and rough dry your hair." He advises putting hair into a high ponytail, but instead of pulling it all the way through the band, leave part of it in so it's shaped like a bun. Then "pin the tail back into the hair and pull pieces out in front."
