Fashion icons aren’t born, folks. They are made, and the red carpet plays a key role in that process. Right now the high fashion faves are fairly easy to spot. Kerry Washington, Cate Blanchett, Tilda Swinton, Anne Hathaway, Selena Gomez, Jennifer Lawrence – these are the ladies from which we’ve come to expect big things. But there are a few up-and-coming actresses who are catching the eyes of fashionistas the world over. Start paying attention to these ladies because you may be bearing witness to the making of a fashion star.
Chloë Grace Moretz
Chloë’s not quite a household name, but she’s getting there. With starring roles in films like Carrie and Kick Ass 2, Moretz had a big year hitting up the red carpet. Fashion bloggers love her look because she always manages to rock age-appropriate styles, but stays in high fashion with designers like Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino and Chanel. This is no small feat, but with bright colors and pastels, Ms. Chloë works the red carpet like a 16 year-old star should.
This year’s new Juliet also had plenty of reasons to attend red carpet events, with the premieres of her new movies, Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet and Ender’s Game. She’s one of the youngest actors to ever be nominated for an Academy Award (because she was amazing in 2011’s True Grit), and now she’s winning the hearts of the fashion critics. Steinfeld takes a lot of risks with her style, and it doesn't always pan out perfectly, but you get the sense that she plays an instrumental role in her look. Rocking the likes of J Brand, Thakoon, Alexander McQueen and Topshop, Steinfeld and Moretz both manage to look simultaneously youthful and elegant when they step on the scene.
During her world tour promoting The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones Collins quickly became a red carpet favorite. Also unafraid of taking risks, Collins has rocked some majorly sexy looks throughout the year. She looks absolutely stunning in gowns that have sheer or mesh patterns, and we love what she did for the crop top as well.
Many of us first came to know Ashley as the sexy little English girl stirring up trouble in the Hamptons on Revenge. But fashion lovers know her for her bold red carpet looks and her amazing blog Ring My Bell. Getting lost in the gorgeous vortex that is her closet will soon become your new favorite pastime. Madekwe is always stunning, rocking a lot of red lip and some seriously plunging necklines. If you want to know how to do grown and sexy—with a little bit of punk—Smashley’s your girl.
Justin Bieber attended Dolce and Gabbana's Fashion's Night Out extravaganza last week, and somehow he got to talking to Life & Style Magazine about how he wears women's jeans. He said, "I've worn women's jeans before because they fit me. It's not a trend; it's just whatever works, works." Then, Bieber reminded the reporter that Kanye West apparently wore a women's sweater a few days ago, and added "It wasn't [so he'd] look like a woman in a sweater; it was just a regular sweater that happened to be a woman's." Um... - Life & Style

Kat Von D's hair is falling out because she's too stressed out about the cancellation of her show, LA Ink, and from trying to work things out with her fiance-turned-ex-fiance-turned-fiance-again person, Jesse James. A source told Radar, "Kat totally has bald spots and it's from stress. IT's worse than anyone her age should have. The combination of all the treatments she does to her hair and stress have finally caught up with her. She's started ordering wigs along with hair pieces and extensions she already uses." Well, nobody said trying to work things out with your Nazi boyfriend would be easy, Kat! - Radar

Cleese, who wears a ring designed by Wade to prove he is "serious" about the relationship, recently admitted he is open to another marriage, telling Britain's Daily Telegraph, "I like the idea of it."
TV stars Matthew Perry and Kristin Davis are Hollywood's new 'it' couple, according to new reports.
The couple was spotted kissing while dining at Los Angeles restaurant La Dolce Vita recently, where they shared an ice cream and looked like a couple in love.
A fellow diner tells Life & Style magazine, "He kept his arm around her the entire time and kissed her forehead at one point."
Meanwhile, a friend of Sex and the City star Davis' says, "She's really fallen for Matthew."
The two singles have a string of romance stories to their credits--Perry is often romantically linked to tennis player pal Jennifer Capriati and has recently been connected to actress Piper Perabo, while Davis swore tales of her dating Steve Martin and Brit Damian Lewis were untrue.

Top Story: Clear Channel Dumps Howard Stern
Many listeners who regularly listen to shock jock Howard Stern's nationally syndicated show were in for a surprise this morning. Radio giant Clear Channel Communications, Inc., said Wednesday it was dumping Stern from its six radio outlets that carry his show (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; Rochester, N.Y.; Orlando, Fla.; San Diego, Calif.; Pittsburgh, Pa.; and Louisville, Ky.) under a new "zero tolerance" policy toward indecency, Reuters reports. Stern's Tuesday interview with Rick Salomon--hotel heiress Paris Hilton's partner in the infamous sex tape--is the reason why. According to a transcript of the show released by Clear Channel, Stern asked Salomon if he engaged in anal sex and referred to the size of his penis. Then, using a racist term, a caller asked Salomon if he had ever had sex with any famous black women. "Clear Channel drew a line in the sand today with regard to protecting our listeners from indecent content, and Howard Stern's show blew right through it," Clear Channel Radio president John Hogan said in a statement. "It was vulgar, offensive and insulting, not just to women and African Americans but to anyone with a sense of common decency."

Jackson is currently facing charges of child molestation in California.
Woman Alleges Martin Lawrence Hit Her
A woman sued Martin Lawrence Monday in Superior Court, accusing the comedian of hitting her in the jaw at a party after she asked him if he'd be interested in attending another party at the Playboy mansion. According to the lawsuit, when Jennifer Palmer approached Lawrence at a Jan. 18 party, he responded by "wildly waving his hands around, slurring and mumbling in a manner suggesting that he was intoxicated or otherwise disoriented, using very foul language." Palmer alleges she tried to push him away and he struck her in the jaw. Lawrence's publicist called the accusations false and "financially motivated." Palmer is seeking more than $25,000 for assault, battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress, the AP reports. A hearing is scheduled for June 7.
Wedding Scene Cut From Jersey Girl
Director Kevin Smith said he cut a wedding scene with Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez from his upcoming Jersey Girl.

"People might forget they're watching a picture, like, 'Wait, didn't these two NOT get married?'" Affleck and Lopez abruptly postponed their September 2003 nuptials because of the excessive media attention surrounding the ceremony. They have since ended their engagement. Jersey Girl is set for release March 26.
