We’re only a few days into the new year, and the creative nail art trend of 2012 is something that’s definitely carrying over. Celebrities are continuing to get creative with their manicures, like Gabrielle Union, Taylor Swift, and Zoe Saldana, who all went the matchy-matchy route, coordinating their nails and outfits. Union matched her digits to her silver dress, Swift painted the town (and her nails!) red at her New Year’s Eve performance in Times Square, and Saldana mirrored the green tones in her Pucci number with a dark olive lacquer.

Brighten up your fall look with a poppy red pout. As bold as it is pretty, a crimson lip adds instant glamour to any ensemble. Get inspired by the exaggerated lips from the Prada Spring 2013 runway or take a cue from our InStyle Makeover cover girl, Julianne Hough, who recently stepped out with a prominent pucker. Everyone can pull off the look—the key is finding the right color for your complexion. If you have fair skin, look for hues with blue undertones, while warmer skin tones should stick with shades that have a yellow-orange base. Just remember when wearing a bold red lip to dab a light layer of concealer onto your pout before applying product. This mutes your natural lip color and allows the true shade to come through. Gabrielle Union, Cobie Smulders, and Solange Knowles all recently made beauty statements with red lipstick. Plus, click through the gallery below for more celebrities working the on-trend poppy pucker.

“Every woman looks good in red,” All My Children alum Leven Rambin told InStyle.com at our annual Summer Soiree in Beverly Hills this week.

Kirsten Dunst’s and Gabrielle Union’s Bring It On is back—and it’s on Broadway! After an acclaimed national run, the cheerleading film-turned-stage musical, penned by the Tony-winning creators of In the Heights and Next to Normal, officially opened on the Great White Way last night, and it seems that critics and fangirls alike can’t get enough of the nostalgia check. ”Bring It On certainly gives fierce face, but it also backs up that glittering grill with just enough sinew and substance,” New York magazine wrote. And, with more rah-rah reviews, The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, and USA Today are all fans, too! But the question is: Would you go see the high-flying fun? Watch the trailer for a sneak peek of what to expect. Bring It On: The Musical is scheduled for a limited run at the St. James Theater until October 7th; visit telecharge.com for tickets.
