Beyoncé’s newborn baby girl Blue Ivy Carter already has plenty of fans—just look at helloblueivycarter.tumblr.com!—and Bey’s BFF Kelly Rowland is definitely one of them. We caught up with the Destiny’s Child alum over Grammys weekend, who told us that yes, she’s met the wide-eyed little one. Is she as gorgeous as she looks, we wondered? “Yes!” Rowland emphatically told us. As for how the new mom bounced back into shape: “She’s just born like that,” Rowland said of Beyoncé. ”Seriously!” To see more more new celebrity moms, click through the gallery!

We love the lively and exuberant vibe Corinne Bailey Rae, Kelly Rowland, and Diana Ross brought to the Grammy Awards red carpet with their naturally curly hairstyles! Rae swept hers over to one side, Rowland gathered hers into a huge ponytail on the back of her head, and Ross let hers hang full and loose. So, do you ever wear your hair curly?

Summer brights were a popular style choice at the BET Awards in Los Angeles last night. Kerry Washington beamed in an acid green Michael Kors silk column gown with a sexy keyhole neckline. Meanwhile, two-thirds of the former Destiny’s Child group—Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland—both chose vivid hues, Williams in an amethyst BCBG Max Azria dress and Rowland in a fuchsia Notte by Marchesa look with a ruffle detail.

Music just celebrated one of its hottest nights: The Billboard Awards! Taylor Swift (left) walked the red carpet in a strapless sequined Elie Saab gown, which she teamed with Lorraine Schwartz jewels and punchy red lipstick. Our June cover girl took home two of the night’s biggest award—top album and top country artist! “The impact of an album is all determined by the fans,” Swift told the audience when she picked up her first. “You’ve just given me another reason to be completely in love with you.” Rihanna (right) also scored big at the event, taking home the radio artist of the year and top female artist honors. Before performing “S&M” with Britney Spears, she posed for photos in a sexy white Max Azria suit.

Though Rihanna has been known to be quite the hair chameleon, her latest style—poufy, red and big—may be our new favorite. The singer first revealed her new look via Twitter while working on a music video for “S&M,” a track off her new album Loud. Then last night, she appeared in Los Angeles almost unrecognizable under her voluminous curls (shown). But Rihanna isn’t the only celebrity to rock big, bold hair in recent years. Check out a gallery of our favorite big hair looks.
