Deep center parts dominated the red carpet. From Kesha's rainbow waves to Jordin Sparks' sleek strands, deep middle parts were all the rage.

From mascara to nails to lips, hot pink was the color of the night. Gwen Stefani not only chose the color for her outfit but for her pucker, too. Solange Knowles used the color as an accent by applying it to her top lashes. And finally Victoria Justice opted for the trend for both her lips and tips when she wore a hot pink lip and manicure.
