Last night's iHeartRadio Music Awards turned out to be a feast of extreme beauty looks. Rihanna [1] attended with a bantu-knotted hairstyle [2] and green lipstick . . . yep, green. Jennifer Lopez [3] hit the stage with a smoky eye that went beyond black. Selena Gomez [4] might have been the tamest of the bunch with a straight style and soft makeup. Scroll through to see even more looks from the iHeartRadio red carpet, plus more head-turning celebrity beauty moments from this week.

Selena Gomez

At the iHeartRadio Music Awards, Selena stuck with superstraight strands. However, she added a bit of excitement with a rosy pink shadow and bronzed complexion.

Jennifer Lopez

At the iHeartRadio Music Awards, Jennifer ditched her typical curls for a sleek style, and her eye look was a blackout makeup moment.

Gwen Stefani

For the iHeartRadio Music Awards, Gwen showed of a platinum blond lob and her signature red lip.

Hilary Duff

Hilary opted for a messy topknot and bright orange lip for the iHeartRadio Music Awards. This look is the perfect inspiration for a sunny Spring Saturday.

Kate Bosworth

Kate was spotted in NYC wearing a red lip and red dress, proving that the shade is truly timeless.

Alexa Chung

Alexa has mastered the art of casual cool beauty. This coral lip and tousled waves combination at the FIT runway show was a prime example.

Reese rocked tousled waves for the Colleagues' Spring Luncheon in Beverly Hills, CA. She added a bit of silvery eye shadow to her look to match her blue dress.

Naomi Campbell

Glowing skin and sleek hair made Naomi look ethereal at the launch of the Kate Moss [7] for Topshop collection.

At the launch of the Kate Moss [8] for Topshop Collection, Cara wore her hair in a double-braided look. It was part headband plait, part plaited topknot.

Amy Adams

For the Time 100 Gala, Amy stuck with a basic beauty palette of corals and creams.

Carrie Underwood

Getting flawless waves like Carrie's at the Time 100 Gala is easy with the help of a curling iron [11] (or a team of seasoned professionals).

For the launch of Victoria's Secret's new scent, Karlie sported a makeup palette of pinks and showed off her grown-out bob.

Sarah Jessica Parker

At the New York Pops Birthday Gala, Sarah Jessica played up her ombré hair color with a sleek, straight style.

Hailee Steinfeld

Typically Hailee sticks to a neutral palette, but for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation Hot Pink Part, she pumped up her look with a bright fuchsia lip.


Although we love Rihanna [12]'s more dramatic looks, this nude makeup and curly jet-black hair combination from her day in NYC is a look we could get used to.

Kelly showed off her shaved hairstyle at the Radio Disney Music Awards this weekend by wearing her lavender strands in an edgy updo.

At the Taste For a Cure gala, Lea decided on a vintage beauty theme. She wore her hair swept over one shoulder, dramatic winged eyeliner, and a red lip.

Rita Ora

We can't decide which side of Rita's look we like more: bun or braid? She rocked this double-sided style at Paper magazine's Beautiful People Party.

Keira Knightley

Keira went for relaxed waves at the Begin Again premiere during the Tribeca Film Festival. Makeup artist Kate Lee used the purple shadows in the Chanel Quadrille Shadow Palette [13] ($59) to highlight her brown eyes.

Eva Longoria

Eva decided to go sleek and straight for the Tribeca Film Festival. She added oomph to her style with an inky-black smoky eye.

Anne Hathaway

Once again, Anne has found a creative way to style her grown-out pixie cut [14]. For a recent Rio 2 screening, she went with a series of twists for the perfect short-hair updo. Consider us impressed!
