Who: Halle Berry

Where: Visiting the L.A. set of Jimmy Kimmel Live

Diagnosis: It’s no secret that Bieber Fever is highly contagious, but we didn’t know even red carpet pros like Berry could fall victim to it. Symptoms include screaming for joy every time “Beauty and the Beat” comes on the radio and hallucinating that extreme drop-crotch pants are a wise investment.

RELATED PHOTOS: Vote on whether these celeb looks are amazing or awful in “Obsessed or Hot Mess?”

Prognosis: If something makes even Berry’s butt look bad, that’s a sign that it should be eliminated immediately. We’d prescribe an immediate switch to sleek leather leggings (we know she has these readily available), and while we’re at it, we’d leave the French Cowboy boots in the closet and add a colorful pump to liven up the look a bit.

We like to stay on top of trends, but we have to admit that the two looks seen all over the red carpet lately have us a little surprised. And yet, the stars wearing them look so cute that we may put prejudices aside and give them a try ourselves. See which styles are gaining ground — and which one we’re ready to leave in the dust — below:

Up: Funky hemlines. More advanced than your basic high-low or handkerchief hemlines, stars like Halle Berry and Nicole Richie have been sporting fitted skirts with triangular cutouts. This look has the same thigh-baring effect as a high slit without being quite as obvious — though we strongly recommend practicing sitting and standing in this one before taking it public.

Halle Berry: My Short Hair Doesn't Define Me

Nov/05/2012 at 09:00 AM ET

It’s been more than three years since Halle Berry famously chopped off her hair, but it’s still an ever-present topic of conversation for the star.

“When I have my short, short hair, that’s when I’m my best self,” she tells PEOPLE. “But hair doesn’t define me. It’s just an accessory that I get to wear, like a handbag or shoes.”

However, at the start of Berry’s career, her lengthy locks did define her, since long hair is so often seen as beautiful in Hollywood. “I personally fought against that stereotype when I first started acting,” she explains. “I would go on acting auditions, and every black girl would have this long, curly hair, whether it was real or not. And I would go to these auditions and come back with nothing. So I had to somehow be different.”

Berry actually made her first big cut around 1989. “I remember I went up to my manager’s office and his heart probably stopped beating. And he said, ‘You’re never going to work, you’re not what they want!’ And I said, ‘Good. Let me be something different then.”

Two weeks later, she got her first TV job, as a model on the short-lived ABC series Living Dolls. “I had short hair and that’s why they chose me — because I was different and not like everyone else. It was the way I kind of rebelled against … the notion that you have to have long hair to be beautiful.” Hear more from Berry in this week’s issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands now. Tell us: Are you proud of your short hair?
