–This is the way the ‘Snooki’ crumbles, apparently: The reality star is livid right now. She’s suing a perfume company in New Jersey for allegedly ripping off her eponymous fragrance line with a similar-smelling scent called “Snazzy.” [TMZ]

Q: What’s super-adorable, takes almost no effort and can cost as little as zero dollars?
A: Adding a headband to your hair, as seen on these stars.

We love an elaborate braid as much as the next girl, but sometimes you want to get a “done” look in under a minute. That’s why we’re digging these four very different looks.

Prices of these headpieces range from $498 (Elle Fanning’s Jennifer Behr “Delicate Vine” circlet) to “free if you just got a present” (Kirsten Dunst‘s black satin ribbon).

And we also love how uniquely each star has styled her look, from Fanning’s tiara-like crown, to Kelly Osbourne’s studded headband to give her updo a little more edge, to Katy Perry‘s traditional placement or her floral number, to Dunst weaving hers right behind her bangs for a schoolgirl style.

But the best part of all: This look works with nearly any hair length or texture, meaning there’s no excuse for you not to give it a shot tomorrow. Tell us: Which headband are you most likely to wear?

Hollywood's Hippy Chicks: Michelle Williams, Dianna Agron and More Dare to Wear Exaggerated-Hip Dresses

Apr/23/2013 at 09:00 AM ET

There’s been a lot of volume on the red carpet lately — and we’re not talking about hair. Some of Hollywood’s most stylish are bringing their fashion A-game (and taking a major risk) with sculptural-hip dresses.

Sophia Bush and Michelle Williams both recently stepped out in frocks by Katie Ermilio with sharp definition at the hips. Dianna Agron’s belted, red structured Louis Vuitton dress is both feminine and fashion-forward — we’d love to borrow it for an upcoming bridal shower.

Elle Fanning combined her ethereal looks with her style-setting instincts in a whimsical Lanvin gown with a voluminous skirt and black sash. And Emma Roberts styled her bell-shaped Honor skirt with a white blouse from the N.Y.C. based label.

The One Item of Clothing Elle Fanning Refuses to Wear

We’ve seen Elle Fanning rock everything from a ’70s-inspired purple pantsuit to a velvet Pilgrim-style dress, but there is something you will never spot the star in: skinny jeans.

“For a long time, I refused to wear jeans. I liked high-waisted pants, but jeans made me feel like I wasn’t being unique,” Fanning says in the latest issue of New York Magazine.

The 14-year-old has since lifted her ban on denim — though skinnies still have no place in her closet. “Even now, I won’t wear the skinny-jeans style, because most people wear those. They have to be baggier, boyfriend-looking, or sort of like a mom jean.”

And just like with her style, Fanning likes to experiment in the beauty department, too. Inspired by Chanel’s recent resort show, she gave pink eyeshadow a shot. (What, like you didn’t base your makeup off the Chanel runway when you were in eighth grade?)

“The models had on different pastel wigs, and I wanted to do my take on a ’60s eye, but with pink,” she explains. Watch out Kiernan Shipka, Fanning is gunning for your Most Precocious Tween title.

Tell us: Were you as style-savvy as Fanning at her age?

Red Carpet Trend Report: The Scoop on Jeweled Necklines, Floral Prints and Slashed Styles

This week’s People’s Choice Awards and Critics’ Choice Awards offered stars lots of choices (ha!) in the fashion department — chances to experiment with prints, designers, trends and more. Overall, we liked what we saw … and think we’ll be seeing lots more of two specific trends as red carpet season rolls on. Let’s get to the lowdown:

Up: Eye-catching embellished necklines. We’re not talking Jessica McClintock prom-style here, thankfully, but several stars — including Jessica Chastain, Emily Blunt and Naomi Watts — showed up to this week’s awards shows in otherwise classic gowns that boasted beautiful, sparkly beading up top. And since red carpets always seem to attract major bling, we expect to see more gowns of this style in the high-fashion weeks ahead.

Five Hair and Makeup Looks We Loved at the Critics' Choice Awards

Jan/11/2013 at 11:00 AM ET

While we were chilling on the couch in our PJs, a host of stars were getting glammed up for the second night in a row, this time for Thursday’s Critics’ Choice Awards in Los Angeles. And while there were a lot of standout gowns, five hair and makeup moves in particular really turned our heads …

Eva Longoria‘s smoky eye. The actress took her everyday look up a notch for Thursday night’s big event, opting for matte skin and a muted lip that allowed her smoky eyes to really pop (seriously, we could see those lashes from space).

Are 'Pilgrim Shoes' the Next Hot Thing?

Lady Gaga, Elle Fanning

Thanksgiving was almost a week ago, but we spotted a pilgrim in Paraguay the other day. Oh, what’s that? It’s just Lady Gaga? Our bad!

The singer is just one of many stars who have fallen for the latest shoe style: the ‘pilgrim’ shoe. Part loafer — often with a heel — the funky footwear is chunky, colorful and reminds us of old-school ’90s clogs. And not in a good way.

Gaga chose Versace shoes for her day out in Paraguay’s capital, Asunción. But she’s not the first star we’ve seen in the shoes: Elle Fanning has an affinity for the not-so-sleek silhouette, too. The actress selected a purple pair for a recent screening in New York City, pairing them with her fairly basic LBD. (Thankfully she didn’t wear them with this dress.)

We have Marc Jacobs to thank (or, uh, blame) for the trend: the designer included high-heeled buckled loafers in his fall 2012 fashion show, and even wore them while taking a bow. But while we’re certainly thankful for that first Thanksgiving — and for today’s designer looks — we think this is a fad that should stay safely in the past. What do you think? Tell us: Are you a fan of ‘pilgrim’ shoes?
