Your mother probably told you to always keep covered, but stars like Sofia Vergara and Rachel McAdams are making sexy, sheer tops look oh-so-right.

Vergara wore a peek-a-boo black top (plus second-skin leather pants and cute red pumps) on a night out in Los Angeles recently, letting her matching black bra show through. Meanwhile, McAdams made her bold bra statement at a movie premiere, allowing her blue brassiere to show through her fitted cerulean tee.

Both actresses kept the look classy — no tight white tanks and fluorescent bras here! — but we want to know what you think. Vote in our poll and tell us: Would you wear a sheer top and matching bra?

Jennifer Lopez's Stylists: She's a Fashion Expert!

When Jennifer Lopez‘s American Idol contract runs out, the star could have another lucrative career — as a celebrity stylist! Wardrobe designers Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn say the fashion plate knows her Prabal from her Prada. “She’s been in this industry a long time,” Zangardi tells WWD when asked about the duo’s “most informed” client. “It comes with experience.” And Lopez’s discerning support serves as a boon to the industry. “On American Idol recently [she] wore an asymmetric fuchsia Valentino top that we were told sold out the next days,” he says. However, Lopez may want to weigh her options before getting in the styling biz. Though the duo helps A-listers including Rihanna and Kerry Washington find the perfect red-carpet dresses, the job has its tedious aspects. “We bagged up every outfit with shoes and accessories, so everything is paint-by-numbers,” Zangardi says of client Rachel McAdams‘s Cannes Film Festival Marchesa moment. “The final look is extremely glamorous but getting to that point often not so!” –Justine Harman


EXCLUSIVE: All the Details on Rachel McAdams's Cannes Beauty

Rachel McAdams has been rocking the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival with a newly extra-blonde do and some fab frocks, but what’s really sealed the deal on her flawless look is her perfectly done makeup. Her sister and makeup artist, Kayleen McAdams, spilled the secrets on two of looks exclusively to PEOPLE, starting with her photo call for Midnight in Paris (left), where the actress wore a fun Maxime Simoens Couture white dress. Kayleen kept the face neutral, creating a matte complexion with a duo of pink and rose gold shades on the eyes. “We wanted the lip to be the focus of the look, so we chose Stila Convertible Color in Fuchsia — a fun, bright pink fuchsia lip stain,” said Kayleen. For the film’s premiere (right), where McAdams wore a stunning red lace Marchesa gown, Kayleen said it was all about balancing the makeup with the hair. “The hair was ’40s inspired and was an inspiration for the makeup in that I wanted to go the opposite in style from the hair,” she said. “Rachel’s hair is a gorgeous shade of blonde right now so I chose to do a bronzy sun-kissed surfer-girl glow. This look was all about warm, healthy looking skin and a fresh glow to go against the strong hair and the strong structure of the dress.” To achieve this look, Kayleen used Clé de Peau Cream Foundation, Amazing Concealer and MAC Pressed Powder for a flawless complexion, coupled with a more dramatic eye and natural lips.

She’s got a new love, new film — and now Rachel McAdams has a new hair color, too! The actress hit the Cannes Film Festival red carpet Wednesday with noticeably lighter strands (though no sign of the mysterious ring she was sporting a few days earlier) to promote her new Woody Allen flick, Midnight in Paris. We think the Elle cover girl looks great in any shade, but we want to know what you think. Do you prefer her lighter locks, or her darker do? –Alex Apatoff

Ever since the spring runways put the focus on bright eyeshadow last September, we’ve been looking forward to setting aside our grays and browns for pops of purple, blue and green. And while we thought that we’d wait until the weather warms up, Rachel McAdams beat us to the trend by wearing an eye-popping shade of neon yellow along her lash lines in the dead of winter. We definitely applaud her for taking a risk and shunning the red carpet’s standard neutrals, but we might save these super bright hues for summer months. Tell us and you could see your answer in the next issue of PEOPLE StyleWatch: What do you think of Rachel’s bright yellow eye makeup?–Katie Dickens


Gwyneth Paltrow Tortured by Her Lanvin Stilettos!

Gwyneth Paltrow may be excited and nervous to sing at Wednesday’s Country Music Awards, but what she felt on the red carpet Monday night at the Country Strong premiere was purely physical. “I’m in pain,” she told PEOPLE. And the actress wasn’t talking about the 20 pounds that she gained—and quickly lost!—for the role, but her black mesh Lanvin stilettos! “I feel like I’m in a torture vice,” she revealed to PEOPLE of the sky-high heels, which she paired with a black Chado Ralph Rucci dress. But Paltrow, who landed in Nashville Monday morning to rehearse for her performance at the CMA’s, isn’t the only A-lister to don the chic Lanvin pumps from the label’s spring 2011 runway collection: Just one day earlier, Rachel McAdams braved the red carpet in the same studded heels at the Morning Glory premiere in N.Y.C. And when not busy suffering for fashion, Gwyneth’s been blogging about some of her favorite spots to shop and eat in the country music capital—even if she doesn’t get a chance to visit them this week. “I don’t think I’m going to have time this trip. They’re working me hard,” said the stylish star, who made her country singing debut in the movie. So is there more country music in store for the fashionista? “I’m not sure. I’m open. We’ll see what happens!” — Wendy Grossman
