    Hip Hop starlets couldn’t seem to get enough of the clippers! While Solange created a controversy by completely lopping her locks off, most, including Cassie, Keyshia, and Lala, went for the half shaved look.

    4. Neon Pedicures

    While Minx mani’s made waves, celebs also got creative with their pedi’s, wearing bright yellow, pink, and orange to play up their red carpet looks.

    5. Tattoos


    Celebs opted for primly placed tattoos to subtly assert their personality. Their new ink sparked discussions here on the Fashion Bomb on the intersection of Tattoos and Fashion.
