Mena Suvari attended the premiere of The Cape this week wearing a pair of chunky gold spike earrings, a twist on traditional gold studs. The accessory—also a favorite of Rihanna, who wore them in her “Run This Town” music video—are the Albert earrings from the Flutter by Jill Golden collection ($185, FlutterNYC.com). “They give Mena just the perfect amount of edge to complement her all black, very feminine outfit,” Golden told InStyle of the look. As for why she thinks they’re such a celebrity favorite? “They are dangerous but pretty!” Click through the gallery to see more funky gold studs.
After watching reality television shows about modeling, hairstyling, designing and celebrity styling, there’s another area within the fashion and beauty realm up next—nails. The TV Guide channel announced plans to launch The Nail Files, a show about The Painted Nail in Los Angeles and its owner Katie Cazorla (inset), whose celebrity clients include Hilary Duff (pictured), Vanessa Hudgens and Paula Abdul. “At first I thought working with celebs would be scary and nerve wracking,” Cazorla told InStyle. “It’s not. When people come to get their nails done, they let their guard down—they want to chit chat and relax.” The eight-episode show will chronicle her work with celebrity clients when it premieres this summer.

Taylor Swift walked the carpet at the People’s Choice Awards on Wednesday night in a pretty peach pleated cocktail dress with an illusion neckline by J. Mendel. The designer behind the label, Gilles Mendel, shared an exclusive sketch of the dress from his spring 2011 collection with InStyle (right), which captures the thought behind the look. The singer and new face of Cover Girl (check out her first commercial!) finished the look with Prada heels and Neil Lane jewelry. See the dress, from sketch to runway to red carpet, in the gallery.
Rihanna‘s perfume is almost here! The singer’s first scent, named Reb’l Fleur after a nickname her grandmother gave her—a phrase she also had tattooed on her neck last summer—will hit stores January 25th. And Rihanna couldn’t be more excited: “I have never been happy with just one scent,” Rihanna told InStyle exclusively. “I have always layered scents to create something just my own, but nothing was ever perfect. So the time was right to create Reb’l Fleur—something people would recognize me by—something that would linger deliciously and make everyone say ‘Rihanna was here.‘” Find out more about Rihanna’s new scent in the gallery.
