    For the first show kicking off the 2013 awards season, a rainbow of candy colors packed a powerful punch. And they really pleased the people. It was as if the attendees took their last real advantage of spunky, technicolor dressing before they had to get seriously glam for the Globes, SAGs, and Oscars.

    At the People's Choice Awards 2013, there was sequin-adorned lace with coordinating fuchsia patent strappy sandals on Glee's ecstatic, award-winning Lea Michele. Her Elie Saab mini was embellished and contoured in all the right places, and her dainty Anita Ko jewels accented without competing.

    Shay Mitchell of "Pretty Little Liars" was radiant in a black-and-white confetti-detailed creamsicle strapless party dress that she accessorized with black peep toes and a black clutch.

    A vivid, electric lime daisy-print Simone Rochas dress looked absolutely gorgeous on 15-year-old "Carrie" actress, Chloe Grace Moretz, while a subtler lemon meringue plunging Maria Lucia Hohen frock looked beautiful

  • Of Sofia Vergara, Demi Lovato And Jordin Sparks, Who Styled This Gown Best?

    (Frazer Harrison/Getty, ZUMA Press & Startraks)Here we have three beautiful, talented ladies with subtly different body types all looking rather fierce in the same leather and chiffon bustier dress. I think we can all agree on that, right?

    Jordin Sparks was the first to wear the strapless Mason maxi dress at the Billboard Music Awards in May, and she teamed with delicate earrings, a collection of silver bangles, a low pony tail, and not much else.

    Demi Lovato gave the black and electric cobalt number a little architectural adornment with a breastplate necklace at the Irresistible Awards in August.

    Finally, Sofia Vergara rang in the new year at famed Miami hotel, The Delano, wearing the seductive gown. A couple of bangles and her long, straightened locks completed the look.

    We think the fit is best on Miss Sparks, but what do you think? Do you even like the dress? Are you over leather? Let us know.

  • Miley Cyrus Mixes a $15 Sweater With $400 Jeans

    Miguel/VM/FAMEFLYNET PICTURESDoes pairing $400 jeans with a $15 sweater justify the price tag of the jeans? Maybe not, but it softens the blow.

    Miley Cyrus and her platinum military haircut made their way out of a California Starbucks recently in just the sort of Coastal Cool (East-West sartorially ambiguous) ensemble that inspires us on days we're feeling stumped. Skinny, cuffed, leopard Isabel Marant jeans ($395) got the cozy treatment from a slouchy, roll-neck Topshop sweater ($15).

    For accessories, Miley kept it classic and rich. A Chanel bucket bag, black ballet flats, House of Harlow sunglasses ($148) and an '80s-style belt rounded out the look.

    Are you over printed jeans? What's your go-to coffee-fetching look? Are you still stock-piling sweaters, especially now that everything's so post-holiday discounted? Tell us everything.

  • Fashion and Beauty Tricks To Hide That Holiday Hangover

  • Best Tights For Every Outfit

    Full-coverage opaque, or barely-there sheer? Swiss dot, herringbone, nude fishnet, faux-garter, or vertical stripe? With so many tights on the market, how's a girl to choose? And, once she's stocked her winter tights arsenal, how's she to know what to pair with what.

    Let's dive right in. And don't forget to click to buy these options below.

    Tights galore!

     SHEERS

    -Sheer tights are inherently dressier and more feminine than all the other tights in the land. Sheers are what you'll want to wear with your fitted pencil skirts, your flouncy dresses, and your sequin shifts.
    -When it comes to shoes, choose closed-toes with your sheer tights. Anything else is a little too.. pretending you're not wearing tights at all. And no one will believe you.

    OPAQUES

    -These are your standard, everyday tights. These are the tights you wear with a thick sweater-dress and a leather jacket. These are also the tights you wear with mini dresses and leather mini skirts--for modesty.
    -For shoes, anything goes. Chunky

  • Groupon Is Really Good At Gifting

    Tom Ford sunglasses.Holiday shopping got you down? You're not alone. This year, Groupon--the flash deals site we all know and love--commissioned a study where they surveyed gift-givers about common gift-giving challenges. At this time of year, thirty percent of people polled think that they're going to get "ugly, inappropriate or bad-fitting clothing," said Julie Mossler, Director of Corporate Communications for Groupon.  Been there, received that. Meanwhile, "the majority of people were worried about buying something for an unidentified love interest," which Mossler described as "not an ex and not a current." Her advice is ingenious: "Get them a local experience!" she advises. "Locate traditional Daily Deals in their neighborhood, go do an activity with them--go skydiving, go drive a Lamborghini for an afternoon, go wine-tasting." Makes sense; when you're not quite sure where your "unidentified love interest" stands in your life, spending time with him or her will only bring you closer.

  • Janelle Monae Grabs Three 2013 GRAMMY Nominations

    Erika Goldring/GettyA peek inside COVERGIRL Janelle Monae's closet would surely reveal a pristine super hero-esque cave of slim tailored suits and tuxedos, with crisp white shirts and a collection of ties. The girl may have a formula, but it serves her very well. Especially when there is a matte, hot pink lip involved.

    At Wednesday night's "Grammy Nominations Concert Live!!" Janelle received three (count 'em!) GRAMMY nominations for the song she and Fun. collaborated on. They performed "We Are Young," a charming tune about carrying a friend home after a night of too much partying, to a room of screaming, singing, supportive fans.

    For her very successful night, Janelle made like Erika Goldring/GettyDiane Keaton in “Annie Hall” in a white, spread-collared shirt under a matte black vest teamed with fitted trousers, and finished with a tie, felt hat and leather boots. A structural cuff and pearl earrings made up her jewelry game, while black nail polish and hot pink lipstick (not to mention sleek black eyeliner and a flawless
