Halle Berry lit up her halter gown at Cavalli for H&M Rome collection. Cameron Diaz hid a possible bad hair day under a beanie at the Giants game. Selita Ebanks gave kisses to ex boyfriend Nick Cannon at 2007 Kids Choice Awards.

As you can tell, Berry and Ebanks have on the same gold-plated decorative earrings. If you want to play down these flashy earrings, go for a look like Cameron. Time will only tell if these three fashionistas jumpstarted a new fashion trend. Between you and I, they already have.

Back in July, actress Tisha Campbell attended the DesignCare's 9th annual fundraiser in Malibu in this Jay Godrey babydoll dress.

Model Petra Nemcova was caught in this Jay Godfrey chiffon empire-waist dress at 2007 Brick Awards this past April.

Socialite Tara Reid rock the same sequin dress in black and white at the L.A premiere of "Reservation Road" two weeks ago.

Style Verdict: Three times on 3 different red carpet events?! This would be a problem if all three didn't rock this dress as they did so elegantly. Tisha and Petra rock this dress with the white fitted bodice while Tara rock it in black.

For the "Cosmopolitan" magazine cover shot, actress and KEDS spokesmodel Mischa Barton wore this orange Gucci by Tom Ford organza dress.

At the "Gothika" premiere, a pregnant Halle Berry rock the same low-cut dress from Gucci's Fall 2003 collection.

Style Verdict: "Gothika" Hollywood premiere was the same event that Ashton Kutcher famously pulls a prank via an episode of his hit TV show, "Punk'D" on Halle Berry's expense. Mischa was at the peak of her "The O.C" hoopla. Tom Ford was still designing couture pieces. -sigh!-

Kourtney Kardashian recently wore this black metallic Sass & Bide polka dot mini to the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' premiere party.

Fergie rock the same chiffon mini to 18th annual MuchMusic Awards back in June.

Style Verdict: Kim Kardashian's look-a-like older sister has style as do Fergie. Both ladies decided to pair the dress with a matching clutch and pointy-toe shoes. The interesting element to dress is the pockets! Grab this dress over for $330 here.

Obsessed-Hoopla examines shaky to shaking women and men in film. Translation: The transformation from the so-called 'ugly duckling syndrome' to the stylish confident individual. Simply put, this concept is the typical Hollywood film gimmick but below are just a handful of this thought.

Julia Roberts-"Pretty Woman" (1990)
Roberts portrayed a stripper working the elite Hollywood business men crew but by the end of the film Roberts became the confident girlfriend of an affluent business man Richard Gere. Her style went from flashy to classy.

Sanaa Lathan - "Love & Basketball" (2000)
Lathan portrayed a tomboy basketball player who hasn't own up to her girly physique but by the time the credits roll on by Lathan is a self-assured young female. Her style went tomboy to grown-up.

Jennifer Lopez -"Maid in Manhattan" (2002)
Lopez portrayed a single mother living in the Bronx who works around the clock as a chambermaid at one of New York City's five star hotels. When the film wraps, Lopez is not only a strong female CEO of her own chambermaid company in which enlists her closest friends as employees but she became the long-time girlfriend of a JFK Jr.-type politican. Her style went from shapeless maid numbers to couture gowns.

Queen Latifah - "The Last Holiday" (2006)
Latifah acts as a sales clerk who has it mad for LL Cool J, a fellow employee, but she never ever acts on her feelings for him. When Latifah takes a much-needed vacation, she transforms into a caring loyal socalite with fine boutique ready clothing. Her hair style went wearing her hair in a tight bun to a wearing it down.

Anne Hathaway - "The Princess Diaries" (2001)
Hathaway became the nerdy schoolgirl who was unaware of her royal background. When Hathaway portrays a young princess of a faraway nation, she evokes the facade of a young Julia Roberts. Her style went wearing plaid uniform numbers to fairy-tale princess dresses.

Sandra Bullock - "Miss Congeniality" (2000)
Bullock acts as an nonsense street smart FBI agent who has a complicated relationship with Benjamin Pratt. When her job enlists her to be placed undercover, every FBI agent takes notice of the style transformation that became the sophisticated hairspray-spandex mini-wearing Miss Jersey contestant Gracie Hart. Her style went from bushy eyebrows with a sloppy posture to a confident beauty contestant. The undercover scheme did numbers on bringing out Gracie's feminine side.

Hollywood also incorporates the men into what I call 'shaky to shaking' style transformation. Here are just two that stuck out in my mind:

Usher - "In the Mix" (2005)
Raymond acts a DJ by night and a playboy by day but when he acts as a bodyguard for a loyal friend the females (the friends of the girl he's protecting that is) can't resist his Italian-suit wearing charm.

Nick Cannon - "Love Don't Cost A Thing" (2003)
Cannon goes from a goofy pool cleaner who has it bad for Christina Milian to a popular kid in his high school class.

Style Verdict: Each movie mentioned above stressed on wardrobe. Each character in the films went from a shaky wardrobe to a shaking one. To break this thought down further, the shaky to shaking in movies is more so of going from say wallet friendly stores to overpriced designer pieces. All images in this post are via Yahoo! Movies. I try my best not to spoil plot details in this run-down, folks!

This past January, media mogul Jennifer Lopez, in a Prada sweater dress and a black Jimmy Choo tote, attended 2007 Winter TCA Press Tour where she promoted her new reality MTV series, "DanceLife".

Kelly Preston, the actress wife of John Travolta, recently wore the same 3/4 sleeve-length, two-tone outfit at the Church of Scientology Annual Gala Charity Concert 2007.

Style Verdict: I say this comparison is a draw as they both look utterly fabulous in the dress.

Joy Bryant, Serena Williams, Naomi Campbell and Kerry Washington may have been the best-dressed fashionistas on the red carpet at Louis Vuitton Gala which celebrates the Murakami Exhibition but...

the main attraction was the limited edition Louis Vuitton Murakami agendas!

The "Murakami" show at the Geffen Contemporary at the Museum of Contemporary Art was all about the limited-edition Neverfull totes. The best bet may be the agenda, which comes in three styles ($500 to $700), because it features a new Murakami character, Chibi Kinoko, which means "little mushroom," making it a true collector's piece.

And here's another main attraction from the event-brace yourself for the The Neverfull tote by Takashi Murakami.

This Louis Vuitton Damier retails for $875 and up.

Mandy Moore in a black tweed corset Dolce & Gabbana dress at the New York City premiere of "Dedication." In a fresh new brunette 'do, the former pop singer paired her dress with red pumps and dark red lips.

Halle Berry flaunts her baby bump at the Rome premiere of her film, "Things We Lost in the Fire" last night. The Revlon model paired her satin and tweed sheath with a comfy knit black sweater.

Style Verdict: Both ladies look fabulous despites how hard Mandy is trying to look gothic. Blonde 'bob best suits Mandy. Halle gets extra kudos for her baby bump, though.

Every fashionista has a favorite designer. My designer of choice is Ralph Lauren but that's besides the point.

Academy Award winning actress Reese Witherspoon's distinctive loyalty for Nina Ricci goes back to that yellow number she rock to the 2007 Golden Globes. Since then, Witherspoon has worn Nina Ricci on several occassions on the red carpet. Obsessed-Hoopla takes you along for Witherspoon's Nina Ricci looks.

Style Verdict: Once a loyal customer always a loyal customer. In case this saying applies to Reese Witherspoon and Nina Ricci.
