Every trip to the salon poses the eternal question: To get bangs, or to not get bangs?

Try out our most popular celebrity bangs like Jessica Biel’s blunt style, Jessica Stroup’s side-swept version, Rihanna’s wispy fringe, or Katie Holmes’s brow-skimming bob.

90210 co-stars Jessica Stroup and Shenae Grimes posed cheek to cheek at the RealReal/Chrysalis Charity Benefit held at Pici Enoteca in Beverly Hills.

We’re only four months into the year and 2011 is already shaping up to be the Year of the Redhead! A steady stream of celebrities are changing their signature locks for the bold color: Gossip Girl‘s Blake Lively daringly switched her long wavy blond strands for a fiery shade, Drew Barrymore unified her two-tone hues in favor of cherry, Malin Akerman ditched her golden color for deep red, and California girl Whitney Port traded in her sunny locks for a lighter shade of strawberry. And that’s not all! Some stars had brief love affairs with red dye, like Khloe Kardashian and Jessica Stroup, while others returned to their roots, like Mandy Moore. See all of 2011′s new redheads in the gallery!
With all of the Hollywood party reporting we do, you can be sure that we know how to throw a fantastic one, too. Tonight we’re hosting our annual Summer Soiree, a kind of back-to-school bash where we catch up with old friends and meet some of Hollywood’s freshest new faces. This year’s crowd includes Emmy nominees Chris Colfer and Lea Michele, as well as newcomers like Amber Heard and Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale, who will all mingle on the grounds of a private residence in the Hollywood Hills. Dylan’s Candy Bar and Crumbs Cupcakes will set out a sugary spread, BCBG and Oakley will offer guests some fashion goodies to take home, and no Summer Soiree would be complete without our legendary photo booth, where stars like Lily Collins, Jessica Stroup and Shenae Grimes let their hair down last year. While we’ll join in to toast to the end of the summer with a glass of champagne (or two), we’ll be up bright and early tomorrow to bring you the exclusive party details!
Last night, Mulberry celebrated the launch of its Fall 2010 collection with some summertime fun, hosting a pool party for some of Hollywood’s most fashionable females at the storied Chateau Marmont. The stylish attendees included Alexa Chung (who even has a namesake bag by the label) looking cool in vintage cutoffs and a washed silk blouse and Kate Bosworth, who wore a graphic T-shirt with black skinny jeans. Cat Deeley, Molly Sims, 90210‘s Shenae Grimes and Jessica Stroup sipped Mulberry mojitos and took pictures with the brand-new Polaroid cameras strewn about, then Chung spun tunes (and Kelly Osbourne put in her own two musical cents) at the after-party at Bungalow 1. The result? One super-cool and stylish fete. Click through our gallery to see all the stars at Mulberry’s bash.
Last night, celebrity stylist Nicole Chavez (her first client was InStyle contributor Rachel Bilson) hosted a chic fete for LOFT’s Fall 2010 Style Studio, where she styled three looks. “I wanted to keep it California chic because I am a California girl,” Chavez told us. Kristen Bell and Emmanuelle Chiqri got a sneak peek at the line’s modern architectural shapes, new fabrics (like tweed) and gorgeous feminine floral prints. “I think LOFT has been coming out with a lot of great stuff recently. I love that almost everything is striped and I’m dying to have all the hats,” Bell told us. “There is also a fantastic pair of equestrian over-the-knee boots that I am loving.” Our favorite piece from the collection? The amazing faux fur bolero that LOFT’s Senior Fashion Director, Alia Ahmed-Yahia, wore. Click on the gallery to see what pieces the stars wore from LOFT’s fall collection.
