In case you were too distracted by the Duchess of Cambridge’s pregnancy news to pay attention to the latest celeb looks this week, we have you covered. Here’s what should be on your style radar right now, plus one dress that veered into questionable territory. Read on for more:

Up: Matching tops & pants: If Gwyneth Paltrow, Beyoncé and Kate Hudson are wearing it, it’s only a matter of time until the rest of us follow suit. All three of them stepped out in coordinating tops and bottoms: Paltrow went for a fitted midnight blue bustier and slim-cut pants, while Beyoncé and Hudson opted for looser blouses and trousers.

Up: Side-swept hair: It looks like the stars are giving topknots a rest — for this week at least — and trying a softer, more romantic style instead. Both Jessica Biel and Amanda Seyfried wore their hair in loose waves and pulled to one side at red carpet events.

Down: Too many cut-outs: Exposing slivers of skin has been a hot trend for some time now, but Kim Kardashian took the look a bit too far when she wore a white number, which oddly flashed her forearms. Note to other stars: Keep the cut-outs to the torso region, please.

Tell us: Which trend are you most excited to try? Vote below!

Jessica Biel looks so much better without heavy bangs. We can actually see her beautiful eyes now.

@Lisa: I agree Jessica Biel does look better without the bangs. She looks so beautiful in this picture. She did cut the bangs for a movie role and I think is just having a hard time to get by growing them out. I hope she considers doing so. It’s a shame to hide such a beautiful face.

I think Kim K needs to grow up. She is so afraid to be alone she is willing to marry or date almost anyone. Not only is she now dating that hobbit…what’s his name, but she is letting him dress her. Come on now. Maybe she could try to dress with some degree of class and restraint. Just a thought.

Her name on

Girl, Kim K. needs to lay off the whatever-she-is-shoving-into-her-pie-hole! Home girl’s getting more than just curves on her frame!
