Jessica Alba has gone blonde — again! The star revealed her new look over the weekend via Instagram, which is for her role in the upcoming movie Barely Lethal. While Alba’s former ombre highlights would be considered a baby step into blonder ambitions for some, this isn’t her first time on the lighter end of the hair spectrum. She first went blonde back in 2005 to play Nancy Callahan in Sin City as well as Sue Storm in Fantastic Four, then dabbled in the look last year to reprise her role in Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For. Do you like her new ‘do? Tell us!
It’s chilly in Chicago right now—no wonder The Good Wife‘s Alicia Florrick (Julianna Margulies) is bundling up! “She’s going through fall with us,” the show’s costume designer, Dan Lawson, told InStyle.com exclusively. That’s why he chose on-trend and on-season pieces, like a black Escada jacket, berry-toned Gucci blazer, and a plum Basler design. “She had a little more color this time around, and she stayed so chic.” And warm! Flip through the gallery to find out what else she wore.
What were your favorite celebrities up to this weekend? Many were at the 2013 American Music Awards where artists like Justin Timberlake and Miley Cyrus performed, and Instagram was abuzz with stars like Nicole Richie, Heidi Klum and Emma Roberts snapping and sharing photos from both the red carpet and backstage. But these weren’t the only double-tap worthy grams of the weekend — many more stars shared their weekend adventure. We rounded up 8 more of the best shots from the social media app.
With 16 performances throughout the three-hour broadcast, there was a lot to dance along to at last night’s American Music Awards, so we rounded up our favorite performances and onstage moments. Lady Gaga and R. Kelly performed a steamy duet of Gaga’s new single “Do What U Want,” Katy Perry belted out “Unconditionally” rocking a peach kimono and offered a visual feast of colors onstage, and Jennifer Lopez paid tribute to salsa legend Celia Cruz in an exciting performance featuring acrobatic dancers and multiple outfit changes. We weren’t the only ones amazed by the night’s performers, either. “I thought there were so many amazing performances tonight, like the Christina Aguilera and A Great Big World performance,” Taylor Swift, who won Artist of the Year, told InStyle.com. “I felt really lucky to be in the audience tonight and be dancing to all of it.”

Lady Gaga Wears 3 Versace Dresses During The AMAs (And Channels Donatella In Her Versace Spring 2014 Ad Campaign)Nov 25, 2013 @ 1:42 pm
When news broke over the weekend that Lady Gaga was named as the face of Versace‘s spring/summer 2014 ad campaign, it came as no surprise that the singer chose to represent the brand at the 2013 American Music Awards in not one, but three of its designs. She kicked off the night riding atop a human horse in a chiffon lilac gown (the same one in her Versace ad campaign) with a Medusa body chain and matching lilac platform sandals, followed by a blindingly spectacular vintage Versace gown bedazzled in all-over Swarovski crystals. She concluded her Versace parade with a performance in a custom Atelier Versace Swarovski jacket and a matching pleated skirt that she removed to reveal a custom bodysuit embroidered with Swarovski crystals and silver chainmail detailing.
The partnership between Lady Gaga and Versace began with the artist wearing archive Versace pieces in her Edge of Glory music video two years ago and continued with Gaga dedicating an ode to the designer titled “Donatella” in her latest album “Artpop.” Both driven by similar values, the same uninhibited attitude toward art and creativity, and the same fearless, fierce aesthetics, it seems like the union was a match made in (fashion) heaven. “I am honored that my friend Lady Gaga is the face of our new Versace campaign. I wanted to capture her true beauty and spirit in images that are elegant and alluring,” said Donatella Versace in a statement. “She is like family to me, the embodiment of the Versace DNA.” It rings true, especially with Lady Gaga styled to Donatella-perfection, right down to her signature platinum blonde tresses. And thanks to her AMA outfit changes, consider us prepped and primed for a season of Mother Monster in nothing but Versace.

Sunday night’s American Music Awards felt like the ultimate concert and fashion show in one, complete with performances by Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, Miley Cyrus, and many more. For starters, Taylor Swift, looking golden in a Julien Macdonald mini-dress, took home four awards, including the night’s top honor: Artist of the Year. Swift set an AMAs record, being the first person to ever win the award three times. “Winning Artist of the Year for the third time is kind of a little bit mind numbingly unbelievable, it is a little bit hard to absorb all at once,” Swift told InStyle.com. “It’s amazing, and the fact that it’s fan voted makes it that much better. This year has been unreal for me with this album. I don’t expect things to do well, just by default, so for this to happen is just wonderful.”
Another big winner was Rihanna, who was given the AMA’s first Icon Award, along with an award for Favorite Soul/R&B Female Artist. Wearing a sexy Jean Paul Gaultier look, the singer was presented the award by her mother, Monica Fenty, who told her daughter how proud she was of her success. “I know the journey in your career has not always been an easy one,” Fenty said onstage. She had more kind words for her successful daughter: “I applaud you and admire you for being so strong and so positive and so humble and so focused.”
One of the most interesting moments of the evening? Lady Gaga rode down the red carpet atop a large, white, human-operated costume horse, wearing the exact same lavender Versace dress she wore in a campaign for the fashion house, released the day prior. Timberlake took home three awards at the fan-voted awards show, while Ariana Grande won New Artist of the Year and One Direction nabbed two awards including Favorite Pop/Rock Band/Duo/Group.
After walking the red carpet in a white pantsuit at the beginning of the evening, Miley Cyrus, who turned 21 the day before the show, closed the night with an emotional performance of “Wrecking Ball,” which surprisingly included a giant lip-syncing kitten in the background. Dressed in a two-piece cat-adorned ensemble, the singer proved her skills by flawlessly belting out her hit, while the giant cat was floating onscreen behind her, even crying in zero-gravity at one point. Check out the complete list of AMAs winner’s here.
