THE RED-CARPET QUEEN
Bringing grace, taste and a sense of fun to entrance-making events, the former ballerina, 32, stands out from the crowd. And she happily stands her ground when the opinion is divided. Her love-it-or-hate-it Givenchy Oscar gown, for example, made her feel "strong and unique," she says. Now the face of Calvin Klein lingerie, Saldana moves easily from clean lines to dramatic ones. "I like everything," she says. "I go by my mood."

THE HIP MOM
The pop star exudes avant-garde style, even on the playground with sons Kingston, 4, and Zuma, 2, rocking her own take on trends like harem pants and motorcycle jackets. "I'm always wearing evolutions of the same thing," says Stefani, 40. The L.A.M.B. designer's trick for instant glam: "Try red lipstick-once you do it, you never go back!"

THE DARING DIVA
Known for pushing the fashion envelope as far as it goes, the 22-year-old Barbadian beauty loves mixing high and low labels and celebrates her curves with body-hugging silhouettes. "Rihanna does not take herself too seriously. She has fun with her style," explains her hairstylist Ursula Stephens, adding, "Rihanna is willing to try anything, as long as it makes her feel beautiful. If it makes her feel beautiful, it's a go!"

THE RUNWAY RENEGADE
German actress Diane Kruger, 34, is a favorite of designers such as Karl Lagerfeld and Jason Wu, who reserve front-row seats for her at their fashion shows. The former model, who often does her own makeup and styling, always puts style before function. "Who cares about comfort on the red carpet?" she says. "It's such an unnatural environment for that! I want to feel special and fabulous at such an event!"

Since joining pop-culture phenom Glee
last year, 24-year-old Lea Michele has quickly become a red-carpet must-see. The overnight "it" girl isn't afraid to adorn her petite frame with eye-catching color. "Lea gravitates to bold shades, and it's easier to pull those off without a busy pattern," notes her stylist Estee Stanley. Michele wears sexy yet tasteful dresses in scarlet, tangerine and emerald. "She loves wearing Oscar de la Renta and Giambattista Valli," says Stanley. "She's also open to wearing new designers; she likes to keep her look young and fresh."

THE UPTOWN GIRL
Called the queen of street style by the British fashion press, the New York City socialite and star of The City
has a knack for customizing her clothes. She redrapes dresses and wears statement necklaces and cocktail rings for a modern twist. When shopping, "I look for quality, color and that it's versatile," says Palermo, 24. Adds designer Rebecca Taylor: "Olivia's style is effortlessly chic."

THE MIX MASTER
The power of Alba's style is in the mix. She combines casual with dressy, fancy with funky and high-end with low cost. "My taste is pretty eclectic," says the actress, 29, who adds, "being comfortable is always a priority." She also has two secret weapons. "The most important thing is fit," says her stylist Daniel Caudill. "Jessica is in great shape." Also fearlessness. "My theory," says Alba, "is that if you look confident, you can pull off anything."

THE AMERICAN CLASSIC
When it comes to capturing timeless style on the red carpet, Aniston, 41, knows how to stop the clock. You won't often catch her sporting flashy patterns-instead, the Switch
star gravitates toward all things neutral. Whether it's a figure-hugging sheath or a dress slit up to there, she highlights the smoking-hot body that she works hard to maintain. When asked how she stays fit, she told Good Morning America
in an understatement, "I work out regularly [she does serious yoga] and I eat well, and I think sleep is important."

THE DENIM DARLING
She makes it look easy, but Bilson, 29, thinks strategically when she puts on her jeans: "Always my go-to item when I'm getting dressed." She picks styles that flatter her slim shape and pairs even the most distressed denim with classic tops and accessories. "Jeans make me feel comfortable," she says. "When I'm comfortable, I'm happy." Fave brands: Paige Premium Denim and AG Jeans. "They have the best wash and fit."

THE PRINCESS IN WAITING
All eyes are on Kate Middleton as the world awaits inevitable news-and the 28-year-old beauty rises to the occasion with her wardrobe choices. Always proper with a dash of panache, she "looks chic and refined," says Daniella Helayel, of Issa London, one of Middleton's favorite labels. "She favors classic silk jersey dresses. She has wonderful taste that I don't believe will change when she becomes a royal."
