Summer is right around the bend, which (among many things) means it's time to pack away your thick, chunky sweaters in lieu of light, airier pieces. But before you flip your closet, feast your eyes on the stars who have already started showing off their warm-weather style. There was Olivia Wilde, who was effortless in breezy orange pants, and Zoe Saldana, who looked sweet in a dusty rose Dolce & Gabbana top.

Clad in a spiderweb-inspired frock by Topshop, Julianne Hough's Met Gala hairstyle was set to mimic the latticework design of her ensemble. In fact, celebrity stylist Riawna Capri used over 100 visible black bobby pins to secure the star's pompadour updo. The effect was edgy and modern, with the dark pins providing a striking contrast to Julianne's flaxen strands.
To achieve the style, Capri began by prepping Julianne's wet hair with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Foaming Air Mousse ($5). Her strands were then blown out with a round brush, and a small dose of firm-hold gel was applied throughout. Next, Capri took one-inch sections to create a series of three ponytails on each side of Julianne's head. Loose pieces of hair were secured with the bobby pins in a creative fashion to form a tight style. To finish, Capri molded Julianne's bangs into a pompadour, securing at the back in a crisscrossed pattern. A few spritzes of Vidal Sassoon Extra Firm Hold Hair Spray ($5) to finish lent the perfect amount of punk rock lasting power.
Tonight's Met Gala was all about punk, and many of Hollywood's sweetest celebrities jumped at the chance to amp up the edge on the red carpet. While we expected stars like Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry to embrace their rock chick roots, seeing celebrities like Anne Hathaway, Taylor Swift, and Allison Williams go for more daring ensembles was fun to watch play out at the bash. Anne went platinum blond, Dakota Fanning showed off serious skin, Allison got into a goth mood, and Ginnifer Goodwin sported dramatic eye makeup for the night.

Meanwhile, a slick updo, bold eyebrows, and dramatic lashes finished off her red-carpet outfit. How'd she do?

Justin Timberlake welcomed his celebrity pals to a special show at NYC's Roseland Ballroom last night. The performance, which was organized to celebrate his new deal with MasterCard and billed as one of the credit card's "Priceless" events, brought out JT's SNL pals Andy Samberg and Jason Sudeikis. Justin's wife, Jessica Biel, was also in the wings cheering on her husband. Andy and Jason had their ladies too — they brought their respective fiancées, Joanna Newsom and Olivia Wilde. Also out for the performance were Julianne Hough, Uma Thurman, and Brooke Shields.
The Cinco de Mayo show gave Justin a chance to perform music from his latest album, The 20/20 Experience, which he recently announced will be followed up by The 20/20 Experience Part 2 in September. He sang plenty of his old songs too, from "Like I Love You" to "Cry Me a River" and "Senorita." Justin joked with the crowd, with quips like, "You're at an eight and a half. If you be honest with me, I'll be honest with you." He also asked, "Is anybody drunk yet?" After hearing some cheers, he added, "Good for you!" His frequent collaborator Timbaland emerged toward the end for a rendition of "SexyBack." It seems Justin had as great a time as the fans. He tweeted last night, "Thank you NYC and Roseland Ballroom! Had so much fun tonight. Lets do it again soon."
