A bold hoop earring has the ability to inject both a bit of cool and a hint of femininity. We've spotted a bevy of our favorite celebrities showing off just how these jewels can spice up a look. Jennifer Hudson donned a pair of oversized crystal-encrusted hoops at VH1 Divas Celebrates Soul; Jessica Biel dressed up a white Victoria Beckham gown with a pair of standout, modern hoops; and Hilary Duff dressed up a bright yellow turtleneck with a more bohemian-inspired pair.

Besides being mesmerized by Drew's metallic Malandrino at last night's Going the Distance premiere, we also couldn't stop staring at her tribal wear: the perfect jewels. Her tribal hoops add an exotic flair, without being over the top. The vibe's modern-eclectic, dressed up or down, though I'm partial to the edgy pairing with evening wear. Wear them wrapped or beaded — we love the contrast with gold and silver metals. Always a bold choice.
Kerry Washington is such a stunner. Not only did she blow me away with her artsy J.Mendel dress, but her extra large, extra sensational hoops also caught my eye. Remember when these huge danglers use to be hot in the '90s? Well, they're back and we're all over them. Try them out in sleek gold or silver finishes, or go a little crazy with neon and fun embellishments.
Statement necklaces have had their hurrah the past couple seasons, but there's a new kid in town: eye-catching earrings. I already have a few pairs in my jewelry box, but these Lisa Stewart Turquoise Hoop Earrings ($154) are too good to pass up. I'm enamored with the bright turquoise beads but the price is a little too hefty for me at the moment.

Last weekend I skated my heart out at a roller-disco party. It was so fun! And no, I didn't fall! Not once. I asked you to help me find a retro-cute look along the lines of bold colors, sequins, and skin. Thanks to you, I was the sweetest rockin' diva there.
I started you off with these American Apparel Stripe Knee-High Socks ($10) because they were oh so 70s.
Let's see what you all came up with!

Partysugar's 26th birthday: T minus 12 days and counting! She has enlisted our help to find her a fabulous birthday outfit!
Like a true social butterfly, Partysugar takes her birthday bashes very seriously. This year, she will be letting loose at a swanky bar with all of her good friends. The catch? She's having guests come dressed as their favorite cocktail...and hers is champagne! She wants something mini, something stunning and something that screams "Champagne!" Hint: she's leaning towards golds and light pinks, but feel free to get creative.
I will start you off with these Juicy Couture Dirty Glam Hoops, $68, because they are glam and bubbly.

She hoops, she scores! Hoops are a perennial jewelry favorite. What do I throw on when I'm in a hurry? Why my medium size gold hoops of course. I realize that though my favorite hoops are classic, they can feel boring at times. So in my pursuit for some hoop dreams I came across these contenders belows. Not your average hoops, these have added color, sparkle, and personality. So don't be shy, like me (!), and dream big hoop dreams.
