In our weekly roundup of the looks that are gaining fashion ground (and the ones losing their style street cred), we saw some major bow detailing, a top that can’t even be called cropped (it’s too tiny) and footwear that has passed it’s expiration date (for now).

Eyebrow Groomer to the Stars Spills on Common Tweezing Mistakes

Your mom has probably said to you at least 100 times, ‘Don’t over-pluck your brows.’ But Sharon-Lee, an Australian eyebrow shaper who’s groomed the brows of Kylie Minogue, Rob Lowe and the Great Gatsby cast, agrees.

“Over-tweezing,” she says when asked for the most common brow-shaping mistake women make. “Have an expert shaping, if just once. You’ll never go back to bad brows once you’ve seen the difference a professional shaping can make.”

Once you love your brow line, Sharon-Lee recommends tweezing every few days to remove regrowth. “When any real length comes in you’ll struggle to determine new growth from old,” she explains.

Sharon-Lee, who uses wax and tweezers to achieve the perfect brow for her own clients, cautions against threading. “It’s painful and often requires repeating over the same area,” she says. “Most importantly, it almost always doesn’t remove all hair from the root, so regrowth is much sooner.”

Las Vegas might be known for playing up the glitz and glam, but for Sunday night’s Billboard Music Awards, it was all about the little black dress. Whether it was super sexy like Selena Gomez‘s cut-out Dolce & Gabbana gown or futuristic like Fergie‘s strap-heavy Hervé Léger by Max Azria Atelier mini, music’s heaviest hitters went for the classic color. Nicole Kidman added a sweet touch with her long lace dress and side braid, while Beyoncé embodied simple elegance in a Lanvin sheath with over 75 carats of Lorraine Schwartz diamonds! Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott skipped the country-favorite gowns for a sleek Mandalay dress with a semi-precious stone neckline. And let’s not forget Kylie Minogue’s heavily embellished Alexander McQueen frock with fringed booties or Britney Spears‘s clean-lined, spaghetti strap Hervé Léger mini. Whew, what a night for the LBD! Take our poll below and tell us who was your favorite!

Has playing dress-up ever looked so fun? In a just-released behind-the-scenes video promoting her new tour, Aphrodite Les Folies, Australian pop star Kylie Minogue tries on a myriad of imaginative stage looks with designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana by her side. The Italian fashion house is clothing Minogue for her world tour — the third time they’ve done so — and we love what we see! In the clip above, a glowing Minogue dances in ethereal dresses and over-the-top gowns, flaunts some fun headpieces and stands tall in a few pairs of killer shoes (check out those gold boots), all set to her single “Get Outta My Way.” The tour kicked off in Denmark on Feb. 19, and comes stateside on April 29. Tell us: What do you think of Minogue’s stage looks? Kate Hogan

High notes meet high fashion! Dolce & Gabbana has created the stage wardrobe for Brit pop superstar Kylie Minogue on her “Les Folies Tour,” which kicked off Feb. 19 in Denmark before starting on a world tour. While her last set of tour costumes was designed by Jean Paul Gaultier, this is actually the third time the haute Italian design duo has teamed up with Minogue to create tour costumes; for this show, they used a corset as the base to reinterpret some of their most classic looks for the star. “We’ve revisited iconic Dolce & Gabbana pieces, adapting them to the themes of the tour,” Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana said in a statement. “Working with Kylie has always been very spontaneous and easy. We are given free reign to create because she trusts that we know exactly what she likes. Kylie has always been our piccola principessa!” A sneak peek at one costume (left) appears to be inspired by the title of her last album, Aphrodite.

We have already seen literal interpretations of menswear for the ladies, but fashion’s boldest trendsetters re-imagined the trend in a variety of ways — all in the last day! The latest iterations of the look range from the risqué to the buttoned-up, but always include stylishly sexy details. Tuesday night, Cate Blanchett opted for a black-and-white look, selecting crisp white trousers and shiny lapels for the IWC “A Night in Portofino” gala in Geneva, Switzerland. In L.A., Camilla Belle was spotted pairing high-waisted tuxedo trousers with a gauzy nude bandeau, revealing her toned abdomen at the premiere of From Prada to Nada. And back across the pond, Kylie Minogue ramped up a classic suit with a sheer blouse, breezy bow and crimped updo. We applaud Hollywood’s affirmation that behind every menswear-inspired look is a strong woman, but want your opinion. Tell us: Are you riding the coattails of the latest menswear trend? Are you ready to add a pantsuit to your going-out wardrobe?Justine Harman

A new trend is in bloom! This season, summer’s pervasive prints have been reincarnated into decadent and glamorous oversized florals. On Monday, Australian pop star Kylie Minogue was spotted out and about in London, sporting a kimono-inspired mohair Dolce & Gabbana black overcoat, dotted with pink and white buds. The style must be contagious because that same night, Kristen Bell stepped out for the U.K. premiere of Burlesque in an equally wild Stella McCartney mini dress, which she tempered with merlot satin pumps. The very next evening, reality starlet Kristin Cavallari turned up at the L.A. premiere of Country Strong rocking a coppery floral bodice gown with newly platinum tresses. And while we love the look on our breezy summer frocks, we’re still on the fence about this blooming winter trend. Tell us: What do you think of oversized florals for winter? Justine Harman
