Plaited hair isn’t just showing up on the runways – everyone was "fallin’" for Alicia Keys’ intricately braided updo on the red carpet at the "Keep A Child Alive Black Ball". The multi-platinum singer looked stunning in an Old Hollywood-inspired look, updated with swirling mohawk-esque French braids. She not only recently debuted a new album, but showed off her baby bump as well, so keep an eye out for what is sure to be equally elegant maternity fashion.

Ke$ha’s feathers at VMA’s in Japan may have been loud but the look was not original – her get-up was reminiscent of many of Lady Gaga’s outrageous outfits, particularly the black feathers seen at the American VMAs.

Whitney Port must have read the Fashion Spot’s recent story on rompers, because her flirty floral onesie was the perfect outfit for her sunny day walk with her other perfect companion, boyfriend Ben Nemtin of The Buried Life.

Catherine Zeta Jones flaunted some trends that we’ll hopefully never report on. The usually elegant actress looked positively off-kilter in NYC with a lampshade straw hat, a too-long lace tunic, too-short Capri pants, and cream clogs. Perhaps it was some kind of disguise…
