Top Actress Dress-Up


looking lovely in white was Britney Spears, who arrived at the Sprint Center for the first day of "X Factor" auditions in Kansas City, Missouri, in this feminine Azzedine Alaia frock and gray Miu Miu platform peep-toes. Has Brit gotten her groove back, or is it still too soon to tell?



Actress Dress-Up Picture of Camila Alves

Across the Atlantic -- at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of "Mud" -- Matthew McConaughey's fiancee, Camila Alves, dropped jaws in this Marchesa masterpiece. A wavy 'do and diamond accents gave the Brazilian beauty an extra ounce of va-va-voom.



Actress Dress-Up Picture of Charlize Theron

Earlier that day, Stewart's on-screen nemesis, Charlize Theron (aka The Evil Queen), looked stunning in an all-black getup as she headed to a taping of "Today" at Rockefeller Center. While we like her sophisticated Lanvin sheath, we love her sexy Christian Louboutin ankle boots, which retail for a whopping $1,300! 



Actress Dress-Up Picture of Eva Longoria 1

Sporting what may be our favorite look this week was "Desperate Housewives" alumna Eva Longoria, who turned heads at the 52nd Monte Carlo TV Festival in this sea foam green Versus stunner, which featured a tri-color graphic and black zipper detailing. The pint-sized beauty topped things off with a pumped-up ponytail, diamond earrings, and $700 Brian Atwood pumps.

photographed in the South of France was "Desperate Housewives" alumna Eva Longoria, who wore this slinky Reem Acra dress to the annual Global Gift Gala. Diamond studs and a smile made for the perfect accessories.



Actress Dress-Up Picture of Freida Pinto

Freida Pinto, who oozed elegance in Salvatore Ferragamo as she entered the fashion house's "Cruise Collection" show at Galerie Denon in Paris. A sophisticated bun, silver earrings, and black heels completed the "Slumdog Millionaire" star's ensemble.



Actress Dress-Up Picture of Jamie Lynn Sigler

Jamie-Lynn Sigler was all smiles as she arrived at this year's Chrysalis Butterfly Ball in Brentwood, California. Best known for playing Meadow Soprano, the small screen actress decided to don a sweet Nicole Miller maxi dress and cobalt blue nail polish to the star-studded soiree



Actress Dress-Up Picture of Jennifer Aniston

Even if you happen to be Team Jolie (like myself), there's no denying that Jennifer Aniston was a vision in white at the 40th AFI Lifetime Achievement Awards, which honored Shirley MacLaine late last week. Her Burberry dress was quite basic, but the 43-year-old looked alluring in the simple-yet-chic item ... and her snakeskin Tabitha Simmons heels. 



Actress Dress-Up Picture of Jennifer Lopez

"American Idol's" latest installment came to a conclusion just last week, but that doesn't mean J.Lo is ready to step out of the spotlight. Over the weekend, she made a special appearance in Sin City to celebrate the launch of her new single, "Goin' In." For the occasion, the diva extraordinaire donned a Zuhair Murad mini dress, which featured long sleeves and gold-sequined leaves, along with sparkly Louboutin heels.



Actress Dress-Up Picture of Kelly Rowland 1

Kelly Rowland is currently gracing the cover of VEGAS Magazine, and to celebrate the reveal, the former Destiny's Child member partied the night away at Sin City's Cosmopolitan Resort & Casino in this technicolor Roberto Cavalli dress and $1,500 metallic Charlotte Olympia pumps.



Actress Dress-Up Picture of Kelly Rowland

Following in Lea's footsteps was former Destiny's Child member, Kelly Rowland, who looked better than ever at the star-studded soiree in a Maria Grachvogel halterneck gown, which featured a lengthy train and an equally dramatic pattern on the back.



Actress Dress-Up Picture of Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart rocked an equestrian-like look upon arriving at a "Snow White and the Huntsman" industry screening in L.A. on Tuesday night. The 22-year-old actress -- who was outfitted by designer Stella McCartney -- paired a high-collar blouse with a black blazer and matching mini skirt. A loose updo, smokey eye makeup, and two-tone platform pumps completed her youthful yet chic ensemble.



Actress Dress-Up Picture of Lea Michele 1

Following in Sigler's footsteps was Lea Michele, who took a major fashion risk by opting to wear this long-sleeved, pastel Emilio Pucci gown. Some of you may find the "Glee" cutie's dress a tad curtain-esque, but we happen to love the watercolor print and geometric patterning, not to mention Ms. Michele's Pomellato cocktail ring.

Actress Dress-Up Picture of Nina Dobrev

"Vampire Diaries" hottie Nina Dobrev also loves Max Mara and wore this adorable MM getup to a recent Women in Film event in West Hollywood. In addition to her sleeveless top and embroidered skirt, she hit the pavement in sparkling silver peep-toes.

Disney Channel darling Selena Gomez showed off her fit physique and tanned gams in a midriff-baring ensemble while promoting her new fragrance in NYC. Justin Bieber's better half perfectly paired her under-the-sea-inspired Versace bustier and high-waisted shorts with a Vanessa Bruno blazer and nude Giuseppe Zanotti pumps. What do you make of the 19-year-old's look? 



Actress Dress-Up Picture of Sheryl Crow

Aniston's pal Sheryl Crow made her first red carpet appearance since announcing that she has a benign brain tumor at the 66th Annual Tony Awards on Sunday evening. Sporting an embroidered, navy Marchesa masterpiece, the singer/songwriter -- who's already beaten breast cancer -- wasn't going to let the news of her latest medical scare keep her from attending the show. Good for her! 



Actress Dress-Up Picture of Venessa Hudgens

Vanessa Hudgens looked incredibly mature as she made her way down the arrivals line in an Alberta Ferretti frock at a recent charity event in Monaco. Can the former "High School Musical" hottie keep it up, or will she land in our What Were They Thinking?! gallery in the coming weeks? Discuss!

Angelina Jolie was once known for being eccentric by doing things like carrying the blood of ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton in a vial around her neck to show her devotion. Today, however, her partnership with the handsome Brad Pitt has helped reshape her image into that of a glamorous movie star who can create a phenomenon just by showing some skin.

It's not surprising that high fashion bigwigs like Chanel's Karl Lagerfeld and Vogueeditor-in-chief Anna Wintour love Blake Lively, 24. Just like a model, the 5'10" "Gossip Girl" star is tall and thin.

Cameron Diaz, 39, donned a black sheer design, which showcased her toned legs, at the premiere of her movie "What to Expect When You're Expecting" in L.A. this month.

Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron's history as a model is obvious anytime she's on the red carpet. At the premiere of her movie "Young Adult" in L.A. last fall, we might not have been crazy about her asymmetrical Stella McCartney dress, but we have to admit the 36-year-old made the look work with her  stems.

Diane Kruger is as well known for her red carpet choices as she is for her acting career, which includes movies such as "Inglourious Basterds." A former model, she has referred to Chanel's creative director Karl Legerfeld as her "stepfather," because she's known the fashion legend since she first struck a pose for Chanel at age 15. However, Diane's obsession with couture extends to other brands, too. "I truly, genuinely like clothes.

The fashion-forward Diane Kruger, 35, flashed her gams as part of an edgy Jason Wu-designed ensemble at a soiree for InStylemagazine last summer.

Whether she's climbing the catwalks while onstage with No Doubt or sending the latest designs for her funky clothing line L.A.M.B. down the runway, Gwen Stefani is always the cool girl. The 42-year-old rocker is the only woman we know who can pull off a marching title="Hollywood Actress Photo Gallery" alt="Hollywood Actress Photo Gallery" band hat, a wife beater shirt, and an ab-baring ensemble after giving title="Hollywood Actress Photo Gallery" alt="Hollywood Actress Photo Gallery" birth to not one, but two kids!

Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow is influencing more than just fashion. With the lifestyle website, Goop, that she introduced in 2008, the "Iron Man" star offers tips for travel, exercise, and cooking. In fact, Gwyneth's so interested in the latter that she authored a cookbook, My Father's Daughter, last year. Is there anything the woman can't do?

In the world of celebrity fitness, Gwyneth Paltrow's workouts with fitness guru Tracy Anderson are legendary. The Oscar-winning actress, 39, has credited Anderson with whipping her back into shape twice after giving title="Hollywood Actress Photo Gallery" alt="Hollywood Actress Photo Gallery" birth to her children, 8-year-old daughter Apple and 6-year-old son Moses.

Model-turned-mogul Heidi Klum, 39, rocked a bright yellow Versace frock that emphasized her sexy stems at the 20th annual Elton John AIDS Foundation's Oscars bash in L.A. Hmm, somehow we doubt that the newly-single Klum will have trouble finding a new love..

We tend to think of Jada Pinkett Smith, 40, first and foremost as mom to pint-sized entertainers Jaden and Willow, or wife to movie star Will. However, the former "HawthoRNe" actress only needs to show a little scene to remind us that she's also a celebrity!

Jennifer Aniston, 43, is not the most exciting celebrity to watch on the red carpet, because she's usually in some variation of the same style. However, no one can argue that the actress doesn't look lovely in an LBD.

Jennifer Lopez's years as a dancer are evident with one glimpse at her toned gams. The former "In Living Color" Fly Girl, 42, continues to hit the dance floor for her concerts and Zumba exercise classes

While you might not think of 31-year-old Jessica Simpson as the most stylish woman, chances are you or one of your friends have sported something with her name on the label. The Jessica Simpson Collection, which is sold at Macy's at more affordable prices than upscale lines from celebs like Victoria Beckham, banked more than $750 million in 2010. Those "Fashion Star" contestants really should listen to her advice!

Kate Bosworth, 29, has such great style that she's designing her own line of jewelry, JewelMint. The "Superman Returns" star has teamed with celeb stylist Cher Coulter to create a line of rings, earrings, bracelets, and necklaces for the reasonable price of $29.99 each.

Our adoration of "Titanic" star Kate Winslet just goes on and on. The only thing we love more than her red carpet style is her tendency to be more candid than other actresses in interviews, like when she talked about saying no to Botox and plastic surgery. "I have never tried any of that stuff," she toldGlamour magazine last year. "I don't have parts of my body that I hate or would like to trade for somebody else's or wish I could surgically ...

Reality star Kendra Wilkinson has said that two-and-a-half years after giving title="Hollywood Actress Photo Gallery" alt="Hollywood Actress Photo Gallery" birth to her first child, Hank Jr., her legs and entire body are in their best shape ever.

"Twilight's" Kristen Stewart, who rarely cracks a smile on the red carpet, has made it clear that she loathes being in the spotlight. Her best bet then would be to avoid head-turning,

Michelle Williams made her portrayal of Marilyn Monroe in "My Week With Marilyn" look effortless, thanks in part to the Old Hollywood style she rocks off screen. The former "Dawson's Creek" actress is known for strutting her stuff in gowns with lots of feminine touches, such as a bow on the neckline or sparkling embellishments, topped off with her signature pixie cut.

Jessica's fellow "Fashion Star" mentor Nicole Richie, 30, is quite the trendsetter herself these days. After impressing fans with her bohemian chic style, in 2008 she debuted her own accessories line, House of Harlow 1960, and has since added a line of women's clothing called Winter Kate. Both of them are references to Nicole's 4-year-old daughter with rocker hubby Joel Madden, Harlow Winter Kate. Perhaps a line named after her 3-year-old son ..

Rachel Bilson is also part of the Mint family. The "Hart of Dixie" starlet, along with designer Steve Madden and stylist Nicole Chavez, are the trio behind the members-only website ShoeMint. The 30-year-old also shares her passion for fashion with a regular column inInStyle magazine. "I can talk about fashion all day long, and I am an avid InStyle reader so the relationship seemed perfect!” she said when it was announced in 2009.

Rooney Mara, 26, burst onto the scene with her Oscar-nominated role in last year's blockbuster movie "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo," based on the bestselling Millennium series of books. Much of the reason we're so taken with Rooney is that like the badass character of Lizbeth Salamander that she plays onscreen, she has a unique style, although Rooney's wardrobe is much more sophisticated than Lizbeth's. "I used to wear a lot of girlie,

Actress Sarah Jessica Parker, 46, became a style icon the moment she stepped into the Manolos of "Sex and the City's" resident fashionista, Carrie Bradshaw, back in 1998. Since then, SJP's launched her own clothing line at former discount retailer Steve and Barry's, created several fragrances, and briefly 
served as the president and chief creative officer of the label Halston Heritage. And there might be more to come,

Sixteen years after the Spice Girls' song "Wannabe" was released, Victoria Beckham, the former Posh Spice, has truly become the fashionista everyone wants to dress like. The 38-year-old frequently outfits Hollywood stars in her Victoria Beckham dresses, and even won the Designer Brand of the Year honor at the 2011 British Fashion Awards last November, beating out labels like Tom Ford, Burberry, and Stella McCartney

"Columbiana" actress Zoe Saldana, 33, recently showed off her gorgeous gams in a pair super-short leather shorts.

Small Car of 2012




The ultra-compact footprint of Renault Twizy (length: 2,338 millimeters / width: 1,237 millimeters / height: 1,454 millimeters) is ideally suited to city motoring. It will go on sale in Europe early 2012 with a price tag title="Small Car of 2012" alt="Small Car of 2012" beginning at €6,990 inclusive of taxes, depending on the fiscal measures available in each country.

Like for other Z.E. vehicles, Renault Twizy customers will lease the battery. The monthly subscription starts at €45 inclusive of taxes for an annual distance travelled of 7,500km, a figure which covers the vast majority of ordinary motorists' requirements.

Renault Twizy's running costs – insurance, maintenance and energy (battery lease and electricity for recharging) – are just as modest, working out at 15 percent lower than those of a three-wheeled scooter.

A resolutely modern design 

Renault Twizy will clearly appeal to busy, carowning city dwellers looking for a second vehicle, as well as to younger drivers interested in a safe way to gain experience in traffic thanks to the availability of a version that will not require a driver's licence (depending on country).

Although its compact dimensions are likely to prompt comparisons with the world of scooters, Renault Twizy delivers all the fundamentals associated with any car, namely four wheels, a steering wheel and pedals, plus an enveloping title="Small Car of 2012" alt="Small Car of 2012" body for two occupants sitting in tandem, one behind the other.

Renault Twizy combines real character with a resolutely modern design that boasts sweeping lines, open bodywork, original gull wing doors and a full windscreen which extends over the top of the car to form a large glazed area, not to mention the model's original lighting signature.

Nimble and practical 

Renault Twizy's enveloping title="Small Car of 2012" alt="Small Car of 2012" body and side deflectors combine the enjoyment of open-air motoring with protection from the elements. Additional lower door panels are available to provide even more effective shielding against wind and rain.

The amount of in-car stowage space is ideally suited to the needs of owners travelling to and from work, or for light shopping. A 31-litre lockable cubby – ideal for a briefcase or limited shopping – is readily accessible underneath the rear seat. The capacity of this locker can easily be increased to 55 litres. There are also three litres of stowage space either side of the steering wheel.

2 versions available 

The version of Renault Twizy which requires a driver's licence is powered by a 15kW (20hp) motor, while the version that doesn't require a licence (depending on country) comes with a 4kW (5hp) motor. The 7kWh lithium-ion battery is located underneath the front seat.

Renault Twizy's carefully honed weight – 450kg, including title="Small Car of 2012" alt="Small Car of 2012" batteries (100kg) – is directly beneficial to its range which stands at 100km (combined cycle). Its battery is also particularly easy to charge thanks to an extendable spiral cable stored beneath a flap at the front of the vehicle.

Thanks to an integrated charger, this cable is also compatible with roadside battery charging facilities. An adapter permits this cable to be plugged into any 220V 10A household electrical supply. The battery fully charges in three-and-a-half hours.

Optimal safety 

Renault Twizy's bodywork is far more visible in traffic to other road users. In the case of a head-on collision, both occupants are protected by a deformable structure, while the outboard position of the four wheels and the lateral beams located either side of the chassis provide protection should the vehicle be involved in a side-on impact. The safety retention systems include a driver's airbag, a four-point harness at the front and a three-point safety belt at the rear. Also, since Renault Twizy's occupants are protected and held in place, they are under no requirement to wear any sort of protective gear.

Thanks to its four-wheeled chassis and extremely low centre of gravity, Renault Twizy delivers a reassuringly stable ride, while disc brakes all-round ensure precise, efficient stopping power.
