Best: Taylor Swift
Taylor donned her most mature look on the red carpet, sparkling in a silk Zuhair Murad mermaid gown. "It's one of my favorite dresses I've gotten to wear," she told Seacrest before the show. "I saw it months ago, and I said 'We've got to save this for the Grammys.'" We can see why!
What Happened To Lindsay Lohan?!
Worst: Nicki Minaj
Nicki's goal has to be to appear on every worst dressed list! Her scarlett Versace cape with striking black beading was daring, but that's the only nicety we'll give her! With a pope look-alike on her right arm, all we can think is - How sacrilegious can you get? Oh wait, then there was her Grammy performance...
Rihanna's latest tattoo and recent reports that she went back to Chris Brown had us worried she was headed for a breakdown. If she is, you would never know it by looking at her. She was an absolute knockout in a Giorgio Armani dress she helped design. If this is what going crazy looks like, sign us up!

Call me a shrinking violet, but the mere prospect of getting my teeth whitened at a mall ranks right up there with sucking face with Flavor-Flav. I'm not doing it. It's not just because you're made to lie down with goggles on as some eerie blue light emanates from within while kids on leashes (what's UP with that, people?) and sundry Hot Dog on a Stick aficionados meander by and stare.
It's also that it seems wrong on several levels. Much in the same way that you shouldn't pick your nose in public or, say, shave your legs on the bus, personal grooming matters, like having your teeth whitened, should be relegated to private salons or, here's a novel concept : a dentist's office.
Of course, going to the dentist to have him up the wattage of your whites is expensive and time-consuming and, if you have a sensitive gag reflex, downright unpleasant. Happily, there are ways to fake having a movie star smile that don't involve largeRead More »from Why I'll NEVER Get My Teeth Whitened at a Mall (But How I Keep Them Sparkly Nonetheless)
Whether or not bangs are your go-to for a little hairstyle switch-up or you haven't sported them since your Girl Scout days, they are clearly the latest hair trend to hit Hollywood!
Reese Witherspoon opted for the bang to hide a scar on her forehead.
As seen on Rachel McAdams, Reese Witherspoon and Liv Tyler this week, the long, thick, blunt bang is huge this season. But before you make the cut, weigh the pros and cons for this high maintenance 'do!

Rachel, Reese and Liv all have one thing in common: straight locks. Bangs are the perfect solution for adding some edge to an otherwise bland hairstyle. To get the look, celebrity hairstylist and Nexxus Salon Hair Care Creative Director Kevin Mancuso suggests using a shampoo and conditioner that doesn't overly soften hair which can make bangs lok greasy even when they are clean.

February: a month where I'll be paying extra attention to my clothes, hair, and makeup. And no, it has nothing to do with Valentine's Day. It's all about the Fall 2012 fashion shows, and not just because I secretly hope Bill Cunningham of The New York Times will snap my photo. I've found that I put more effort into outfits for events that are populated by other women than for assignations with the opposite sex.
At first, this hierarchy of beauty may seem counter-intuitive. After all, we definitely invest plenty of attention in what to wear for occasions like first dates, second dates, and meeting the parents. But if we're honest with ourselves, guys don't care much about perfect earrings or shades of eyeshadow- and yes, that includes on Valentine's Day.

The Look: Platinum Hair
"I felt invisible until I went platinum," hairstylist Marie Robinson says. Although Robinson tints the strands of A-list celebs at her namesake NYC salon, she struggled to find her perfect shade until she tried the near-white hue. "My own dark brown didn't give pop to my skin or eyes," she says. "Now I'm addicted to my color."
How to Get It: The platinum-obsessed alternate their daily shampoo with Clairol Shimmer Lights and Sebastian Color to prevent fading and brassiness. Try Kérastase Masquintense to condition followed by Rodin by Recine Olio Lusso hair oil post-shower to avoid fried ends.

The Look: Nail Art
"I've been fanatical about nail art for a few years," says NYC-based DJ Harley Viera-Newton, who became "obsessed" with nail designs while perusing Japanese beauty blogs. "My makeup and clothes are pretty tame, so I go nuts with my nails," she says.

tattoosI have a thing about tattoos, especially original ones that are unique to the person sporting them. The idea that a person can alter the skin they are in and make something new our of their own body is really quite incredible. I have one tattoo that I got after the age of 30 and I do not regret it for a second.
That said, many other people do. My husband and I got ours together after talking about it for years. We designed it ourselves. It's our initials split in half so that we each have a tribal design that means nothing unless we are together. Immediately after we got it on our seventh wedding anniversary, everyone asked us if we would hate it in our 80s.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Take a page from dancers and how they dress: off-stage and in rehearsal, everything has to be comfortable, supportive and allow for easy, graceful movement. Think wrap dresses, jersey knits and classic flats.

Ear-Covering Ponytails - InStyle.comDress up your next ponytail in five seconds flat by pulling your strands over your ears like Sofia Vergara, Hailee Steinfeld, Sophia Bush, and Victoria Justice. The look can vary ever so slightly-Bush and Vergara untucked a few loose waves in the front, while Steinfeld and Justice kept every piece perfectly in place. When you try this hairstyle at home, remember: A drop of shine serum (like Josie Maran's argan oil, $30 at sephora.com) before fastening your ponytail with an elastic will keep strands looking fabulously smooth and in ear-covering place.Read More »from Easy Hairstyle to Try: Low, Ear-Covering Ponytails
