Hayden Panettiere

Born on August 21st, 1989 in Palisades, New York, Hayden got started in the business early. Growing up near New York City, with parents Lesley and Skip Panettiere, and younger brother Jansen, gave Hayden the opportunity to begin starring in commercials at the age of 11 months. At age 4 ½, Hayden was cast on the soap opera "One Life to Live" where she remained until 1997. Since then, she has gone to appear in many feature films and TV movies; including Remember the Titans, A Bug's Life, Dinosaur, and Kingdom Hearts. Hayden is probably best known in the United States for her role as "Claire" on the hit TV show "Heroes". Since being cast on the show in 2006, Hayden has been a paparazzo favorite and we can't get enough. Her grasp on style provides a strong influence on what's in and out in Hollywood, and we frequently spot her frolicking on the famous Robertson Boulevard.

ENGAGED AND GLOWING

Hayden Panettiere seen on Oct 09 2013 in New York, NY. Hayden Panettiere was photographed looking like she was in a wonderful mood as she made her way around NYC on October 9, and for good reason - the cutie recently confirmed her engagement to her beau Wladimir Klitschko! She wore her massive engagement ring for a promotional appearance on "Live! with Kelly & Michael," where she admitted that she is a bride to be. Outfit wise, Hayden started her look by slipping into a pair of red coated jeans (J Brand's Wax Skinny Jean in Red are very similar) and then added on a white top (like Fifteen Twenty's Zig Zag Top in Off White) and a black blazer. For a similar option, be sure to check out Trina Turk's Constantine Jacket in Black. From there, Hayden added on a slouchy leather tote, a pair of black booties, and a delicate gold necklace (like Satya Jewelry's Alluring Necklace in Blue). What are your thoughts on HP's outfit here, everyone - would you wear it? Back on the topic of her engagement, Hayden was asked by Kelly Ripa on the talk show about her huge rock and if it was an engagement ring, to which she replied: "“I think it speaks for itself!" According to Hollywood Life, "The huge emerald diamond appears to be way over 4 karats, which is why the rock needs two bands to support it! The solid band is the perfect setting for the gorgeous stone - it really shines!" Congrats, H!

A VERY POLISHED PANETTIERE

Hayden Panettiere seen on Feb 02 2013 in New Orleans, LA. Hayden Panettiere was seen looking quite polished as she attended the 2013 Lacoste/GQ Super Bowl Party that was held at the Elms Mansion in New Orleans, LA on February 2. For her Super Bowl soiree ensemble, Hayden decided to pair a sleek white blazer (for a similar option, check out Voom by Joy Han's Nikki Blazer in Ivory) with a pair of sexy leather pants (go faux with Sold Design Lab's Faux Hide Skinny in Black), and then added a pop of color via her electric peeptoe pumps. On the accessories side, Hayden added on a white bag with a chain strap (get the look with Big Buddha's Fanton Bag with Long Strap in White) and a necklace with a pretty green stone. Meredith Marks' Anissa Necklace in Labradorite/Moonstone is a similar option that's just beautiful. What are your thoughts on HP's outfit here, everyone? I think that Hayden may have just hired a new stylist, as I've noticed that her looks have been consistently improving lately. For example, compare her ill-fitting ensemble from March 2011 to her gorgeous look from the recent American Music Awards back in November 2012. I'd say the stylish evidence speaks for itself! In other Hayden news, it seems as though the petite actress has recently reunited with her ex-boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko. According to Life & Style, a source says: "Hayden's so happy. They're definitely in loveagain and tighter than ever. They have been traveling together, and he's even planning to visit her while she films in Nashville." Glad to hear that Hayden and her ex-beau are back on!

HAYDEN IS SPARKLY FOR THE AMA'S

Hayden Panettiere seen on Nov 18 2012 in Los Angeles, CA. Hayden Panettiere walked the red carpet at the 2012 American Music Awards earlier this evening, November 18, looking lovely in a sequined dress with complementary accessories. The "Nashville" sweetie presented an award at the earlier ceremony, which was the 40th anniversary of the show! For her AMA ensemble, Hayden picked a simple champagne colored beaded dress (for a similar option that's totally on-trend, check out Alexia Admor's Sequin Color Block in Champagne Coral, and for a more ornate option, check out Sue Wong's gorgeous Disco Beaded Tulle Dress in Champagne) that she paired with matching champagne satin platform heels and a satin clutch (get the look with Zambos & Siega's exotic Python Twiggy in Powder). From there, HP polished off her look with a stunning silver bracelet (try Ben Amun's Jonquil Crystal Deco Bracelet in Silver), and on a beauty note, Hayden sported a pretty pink lip color and swept her hair up and off to the side. What are your thoughts on HP's award show style, everyone? Pretty and polished, or predictable? For those of you who are fans of Hayden's hit show "Nashville," the cutie recently spoke to Self Magazine about her role and the show, saying: "I'm having fun playing the bad girl in Nashville! I sang and started an album when I was younger, but I wasn't proud of how it was going, so I quit. I always said that if I did music in the future, I'd do country. I love it. But because I'm from New York, I was afraid people would think I was trying to fit where I didn't belong and go, 'She's trying to be Taylor Swift.' I'm not trying to be anybody but myself." Interesting! Do you buy Hayden as a country star, everyone?

PRETTY IN PURPLE SEQUINS

Hayden Panettiere seen on Jul 22 2012 in Unviersal City, CA. Hayden Panettiere was seen striking several poses as she arrived at the 2012 Teen Choice Awards on July 22, dazzling in a sequined purple Zuhair Murad frock that she paired with a perfectly matching pair of B Brian Atwood Fontanne heels. Jewelry wise, Hayden sported a Swarovski Montana Blue crystal snake ring and a pair of two-tone chandelier earrings by Open Hearts by Jane Seymour. What are your thoughts on HP's Teen Choice look, everyone - sparkly and fun, or too matchy matchy? If you're into her sartorial approach, readers, you can easily recreate a super similar look using pieces from CoutureCandy. Start with a purple sequined dress, like Carter's Mad Mod Mini in Purple/Black, and then add a pair of pretty chandelier earrings (such as Heather Gardner's Bohemian Crystal Chandelier Earrings in Gold/Colorado) like Hayden did. If you want to play up the purple aspect of the look, accessorize with a complementary piece of jewelry, such as Satya Jewelry's Conviction Bracelet in Amethyst. A great clutch (you can't go wrong with Zambos & Siega's Joanie Clutch in Black) adds the perfect finishing touch. In other Hayden news, the blonde starlet seems to have been enjoying some vacation time in Egypt before returning to LA to attend the Teen Choice Awards. She was spotted wearing a teeny black bikini while soaking up the sun with a friend... ah, the life of a celeb!

SCARED BY HER OWN MOVIE

Hayden Panettiere seen on Mar 19 2011 in Cologne, Germany. Spending some time with her man's family overseas, Hayden Panettiere was spotted leaving the McFit VIP Party on her way to watch boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko's brother Vitali fight Cuban boxer Odlanier Solis in Cologne, Germany on March 19. HP arrived bundled up in a chic trench coat (check out Mike Gonzalez' Astrud Convertible Jacket in Multi), peeling it off to reveal a sexy white mini dress (try Luc by Lucy's Cut Out Bella Dress in White) with nude pumps (like Coye Nokes' classic Jacqueline Pump in Taupe Patent), a slender clutch with a chain strap (similar to Inge Christopher's Scarlett Micro Dot Clutch in Gold) and a pair of chic diamond earrings (try Jacquie Aiche's Herkimer Stud Earring in Gold) shown off by her voluminous roots. What do you think of Hayden's sexy ringside look, does it work for her? I'm thankful that she didn't default to one of her sausage tube mini dresses of the past, but the plunge front is definitely a very provocative detail! As the release of HP's highly anticipated thriller Scream 4 draws closer, Hayden and her young co-star Emma Roberts are speaking out about their spooky experiences filming. Hayden told Total Film magazine how director Wes Craven got inside their heads: "In order for us to be genuinely freaked out we weren't allowed to see the man who does the voice [of killer Ghostface]. He was on set but they hid him from us, so we never got to meet him. That was part of Wes' tactics: we couldn't put a face to the voice we had to be listening to on the phone... That mask freaks me out more than any other. Especially with the knife and the person chasing us around." Sounds like a pretty scary place to work if you ask me!

HUGE TINY COUPLE

Hayden Panettiere seen on Mar 12 2011 in Bochum, Germany. Getting all dolled up in support of her man, Hayden Panettiere is lovely in lace at the Steiger Awards dinner in Bochum, Germany on March 12. Hayden attended the awards show to support her man Wladimir Klitschko, who accepted an award for an outstanding year in the boxing ring during the ceremony. HP was sassy and sexy at the event, wearing a tight fitting lace cami dress (check out Sue Wong's Satin Applique Strapless Sheath in Black/Nude or Sky's Riddles Mini Dress in Black for similar options) with black stockings, black pumps (like Coye Nokes' Jacqueline Pump in Black Embossed Python) and a gorgeous sparkling ring to complete the look (try Ariel Gordon's 14K Rose Cut Ring in Iolite). The dress is a bit too reminiscent of lingerie for me, but with her hair pulled back it does exude a tasteful level of sophistication that I think works for Hayden's young age. Thoughts? Hayden has been traveling back and forth to Germany to be with her man for over a year now, and she recently shared the origins of their relationship in an interview: "We met, a friend of ours did a book, a coffee table book, and the proceeds went to genocide [relief]. So, he did a picture in it and I did a picture in it… [Our first meeting] was, ‘You’re huge!’ ‘You’re tiny,’ and that’s a conversation starter." Whatever works for them, right?

CATCHING OSCAR FEVER

Hayden Panettiere seen on Feb 23 2011 in Los Angeles, CA. Getting in the Oscar spirit, Hayden Panettiere heads out to Harvey Weinstein and Dior's pre-Oscar dinner at Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles on February 23. Hayden reverted back to her penchant for super short strapless dresses, selecting a fiery red mini with an organza ruffled front (check out Bailey 44's NY Dolls Dress in Crimson or Voom by Joy Han's Samantha Babydoll in Red for similar embellished options) topped with a tuxedo jacket (like Tart's Marquis Jacket in Black) and a pair of strappy peeptoe booties (similar to Loeffler Randall's Parker in Black). HP carried a tan clutch to neutralize the look (check out Jalda's Fabric Kona in Bronze), wearing her hair pulled back in two crown braids. What do you think of Hayden's fine dining attire, is it appropriate or would you have gone with a longer hem? Hayden looked a little frazzled as she made her way out of the bash on her cell phone, but then again it was the end of what had to be a very long day for her. Before getting ready for the big dinner, Hayden headed out for a bizarre lunch in Venice Beach, where she got a big wet smooch from not only a huge pooch passing by but also one of the infamous speedo wearing performers on the boardwalk. Check out the hilarious photos at the link above - just another day in Venice, right?

BOA BOUFFANT

Hayden Panettiere seen on Feb 12 2011 in West Hollywood, CA. Steppy out for a classy dinner, Hayden Panettiere dines at BOA steakhouse in West Hollywood with pal Jenna Ushkowitz on February 12. It was Jenna's second night in a row dining at the WeHo hotspot, and especially considering she's a vegetarian there must be some delicious animal friendly eats on the menu! HP dressed to casually impress in a cropped leather jacket with a drape front (check out the similar style of Ella Moss' Campbell Blazer in Black) over a white top (try Tt Collection's luxurious Shannen Top in White) and a pair of super skinny indigo jeans (similar to Frankie B.'s French Kiss Skinny in Indigo). Hayden added some shine to her look with a pair of gold peeptoe Louboutins and a gold and black Nicky Hilton spike ring (add a femme touch with Amrita Singh's Watau Ring in Gold). Lastly, Hayden carried Rebecca Minkoff's popular Morning After tote (try Jalda's Fabric Masha in Black), which has me wondering if she's off to meet up with her boxing boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko? The most eyecatching part of Hayden's look is her bright ruby lipstick and teased blonde bob, which I'm not really feeling. The combo has way too big of an early 90's vibe for me, and I know that's trending right now but I just can't bring myself to like this on her. Thoughts?

FOOTBALL TO THE FACE

Hayden Panettiere seen on Feb 03 2011 in Los Angeles, CA. Getting her day off to a java jumpstart, Hayden Panettiere was spotted leaving Starbucks at the Beverly Glen Mall in Los Angeles on February 3. HP hurried back to her car to carry on with her day as fast at her lace-up wedge boots could carry her – what are your thoughts on this trend, have you indulged in a pair for yourself? Hayden put her casual look together with a slouchy pullover sweater (like Free People's Whispa Pullover in Natural), smoky grey skinny jeans (try Genetic Denim's The Shane in Silver) and the aforementioned boots (check out Farylrobin's Molly Lace Up Military Boot in Wet Stone for a more casual option). Hayden completed the look with a long pendant necklace (try Robyn Rhodes' Dolly Long Necklace in Silver) and her wallet tucked under her arm (check out Gorjana's Thompson Pouchette in Coral, petite enough to fit in your purse but with a little extra room for lipgloss and keys). What are your thoughts on Hayden's casual look, does it work for her? I'm not crazy about how short her hair is when pulled back in a pony, in the photo on the right it almost looks like she's completely cut it off and it accentuates her features in a masculine way. Not exactly the cutest look! One thing short hair is good for though is playing sports, and having her cut worked out well this weekend when Hayden headed to Dallas to take part in the pre-Super Bowl festivities. On Saturday HP played in the Celebrity Beach Bowl game of flag football, where she won the title of "Most Inspirational Player." Hayden chatted excitedly with People about her big win: "I won an award – for football! It has to be because the ball hit me in the face." Ouch! What Super Bowl activities have you readers been partaking in this weekend?

SHEER SITUATION

Hayden Panettiere seen on Jan 16 2011 in Beverly Hills, CA. Returning to the US just in time for the Golden Globes, Hayden Panettiere poses confidently at HBO's Golden Globe Awards after party at the Beverly Hilton on January 16 in Beverly Hills, CA. Looks like her stylist seriously mislead her with this dress, as you can totally see her pasties covering her goods thanks to the light from the camera flashes – oops! HP seemed blissfully unaware as she posed next to boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko in her dramatic plunging peacock blue gown (try a full coverage version like Ella Moss' Jordanna Dress in Cobalt or Karen ZAMBOS's Beckham Mini in Navy). Hayden paired her revealing frock with a glittery midnight clutch (add a fun splash of color with Inge Christopher's Scarlett Micro Dot Clutch in Blue Violet) and a sparkly diamond band ring (take it to the next level with Erica Anenberg's edgy Classic Sparkle Twosome in Silver/Clear). What do you think of Hayden's look, is her wardrobe malfunction forgivable? I just don’t understand how no one noticed how sheer the bodice is before her left her dressing room, it's really a little frightening! HP has just returned to the US after spending five weeks abroad filming The Amanda Knox Story in Rome, which tells the true story of an American student who was convicted of murdering her roommate while studying in Italy and was sentenced to 26 years in prison. Given how recent the conviction was, Hayden recently chatted about how difficult it was to get into the character: “The thing is when you don’t know how to play it that’s the most complicated thing because I can’t go in there with the idea that I’m innocent or I’m guilty… If you have to lean any way in the script it would be more the innocent side of playing it. It is a very controversial topic and it is very two-sided. I mean if you look at the facts and stuff there is a lot of things that don’t make sense… [it's] pretty fact-driven so it’s hopefully when people see it they won’t think it’s quite as controversial as it has been billed to be.” Sounds like a very interesting role!

PUP LOVIN'

Hayden Panettiere seen on Oct 10 2010 in London, UK. Having a blast on the red carpet, Hayden Panettiere arrives at the premiere of Alpha and Omega on October 10 in London, England. HP voices one of the animated wolves in the film, and got to hold a wolf pup for a photo op after signing autographs for fans. Looks like she's having way more fun that most celebs in front of the press wall! At the premiere Hayden dressed casually in charcoal skinnies (check out 7 For All Mankind's Skinny in Dark Smoke Grey) and a silver sequined tunic top (add some bling this season with Karen Zambos' Benatar Dress in Grey or Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent's Sequin Shirt Dress in Black/Gold) paired with nude patent pumps (like Coye Nokes' Jacqueline Pump in Taupe Patent) and a pair of sparkly stud earrings completing the look (give it a unique twist with Amrita Singh's Kanesh Earring in Gold/Silver). What do you think of Hayden's low key style? I like that she didn't just wear the tunic as a dress like most young celebs would've, but I think she missed the mark with the snoozefest footwear. Love that she's still rocking the short hair also, which has become a trend over the past few months with stars including Ginnifer Goodwin and Emma Watson chopping off their locks as well. What are your thoughts on this new look, are you hoping it will be short lived or have you also reached for the scissors?

CONTROVERSIAL NEW ROLE

Hayden Panettiere seen on Sep 23 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. A very comfy Hayden Panettiere makes her way through the Los Angeles International Airport on September 23 to catch a flight to Germany with her boxer beau Wladimir Klitschko. After her man's victory in the ring the previous week, the happy couple headed back to his neck of the woods to celebrate Oktoberfest over the weekend, celebrating in full dirndl fashion. HP boarded her flight in cozy fringed Koolaburra boots, which you can snag for yourself on CoutureCandy (check out Koolaburra's nearly identical Double Fringe Short Boot in Chestnut) with stretchy indigo jeggings (Rock & Republic's Isa in Multi). In keeping with the Native American theme, Hayden carried a tribal embroidered messenger back (try an ornate bag like Moyna Handbags' Embroidered Floral Clutch in Brown) to complement her furry footwear. What do you think of Hayden's first class 'fit, do you think she's wearing this casual look right or is she taking the theme too far? After a few days of boozing in Germany, HP and her man were spotted sailing into Croatia this weekend, spending some time together while they both have some downtime from work. Hayden will soon appear in Scream 4 on the big screen, but there's also talk she's going to star in The Amanda Knox Story, a Lifetime flick set to tell the story of the Seattle college student who was convicted of murdering her roommate while studying abroad in Perugia, Italy in 2007. Amanda's appeal trial is set to begin this November, so naturally both she and her lawyers are opposing the project and seeking a court order to block its release. Do you think it's too sensitive of an issue to be turned into a drama before the case is concluded? Read more about it and let us know what you think!

FLYING IN ROCK N' ROLL STYLE

Hayden Panettiere seen on Sep 17 2010 in New York, NY. Hayden Panettiere lands at LAX with a beaming smile on September 17, looking happy to be home after spending a week in Germany with her boxing beau Wladimir Klitschko. HP went with a casual rock inspired look for her flight, pairing a Van Halen t-shirt (get the look with Chaser LA's Van Halen Short Sleeve Tee in Grey) with a loose open cardi (mix it up with a subtle stripe like Ella Moss' Tompson Cardigan in Black) and faded charcoal skinnies (like Rich & Skinny's Sleek in Smokestorm). Hayden strutted through the airport in buckled booties, carrying a fun fringed tote (very similar to Carla Mancini's Audrey Soft Tote with Fringes in Black) as a carry-on for her flight. You can hardly tell she just spent the last 10+ hrs cooped up on a plane! What do you think of Hayden's high flying style? HP has had some extra time to spend with her new man over the past few weeks, as filming for Scream 4 just wrapped in Detroit earlier this month. Newbie co-star Emma Roberts gushed about how much fun she had filming the horror flick with HP and the rest of the crew: “I think that this is the best one, dare I say. It’s amazing because they have the original cast—Courteney Cox, David Arquette, Neve Campbell—and then we have this whole new young cast we’re introducing that’s, to name a few, me, Hayden Panettiere, Rory Culkin who I’ve done a few movies with, which is great, and Wes Craven’s directing this one, and he’s just one of the coolest people I’ve ever met.” Are any of you Scream fans looking forward to seeing the saga unfold on the silver screen for the fourth time?

HE'S A KNOCKOUT

Hayden Panettiere seen on Sep 11 2010 in Frankfurt, Germany. Traveling halfway around the globe for love, Hayden Panettiere came out to support boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko's knock-out victory against Samuel Peter in Frankfurt, Germany on September 11. HP looked ecstatic in the stands, bringing along her little brother and dad to cheer on her man for the win. I'm not sure what is considered appropriate ringside attire, but Hayden was looking smokin' hot in a black bandage dress with shoulder cut-outs and a studded design on the front (get your LBD fix with Carter's Studded Bottom Statement Dress in Black or Soul Revival's Brendon with Pyramid Detail in Black). HP warmed up in a black blazer with satin lapels (play up the rocker vibe with Carter's Rock or Die Blazer in Black) and peeptoe pumps, carrying a black envelope clutch (try Rough Roses' Kimberly Foldable Clutch in Black with an adorable rose stud accent on the flap) and otherwise keeping her accessories minimal. Unlike Christina Aguilera, Hayden is sticking with her pixie cut, creating volume with a few pins and twists in her hair. What do you think of HP's fight night attire, is this an improvement from her past obsession with bandage dresses? I must say I'm a fan of the studded detail on the front of the dress – kicks it up a notch from your average LBD! At the match it was a family affair as Hayden chatted it up with Natalia Klitschko, which some blogs are mistakenly identifying as Wladimir's ex-wife. A quick Google search reveals she's married to W's older brother, Vitali – get your facts straight, people!

SCREAMING ON AND OFF SET

Hayden Panettiere seen on Aug 21 2010 in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Hayden Panettiere enjoys her new drinking privileges at the Cavern Club in Ann Arbor, Michigan on her 21st birthday, August 21. HP has been staying near Detroit filming Scream 4 with newbie co-star Emma Roberts at her side. Ol' timer co-stars David Arquette and Neve Campbell were said to have planned Hayden's b-day soiree, which featured a giant dolphin cake for the environmental activist among the celebratory surprises. Hayden fell back on her going out staple, the strapless LBD (put on new twist on the classic with Wish's Contact Bandeau Dress in Black or Luc by Lucy's Tube Top Tracey Dress in Black) tooped with a cropped blazer (get into the fall trend in Jack by BB Dakota's Jack Blazer in Black) and layered chain necklace (I'm loving Amrita Singh's exquisite Mayna Necklace in Silver), completing the look with neutral strappy stilettos (try Gwyneth Shoes' Omyrah in Gold) and an old-Hollywood inspired gift bag. Hayden is keeping her hair short n' spiky for the summer, what do you think of her shortened locks? Hayden might have just turned 21, but a few weeks ago she reportedly raised a scene when denied entry into Hollywood hotspot Villa due to lack of ID. She was heard screeching at a bouncer, “Are you kidding me? I come here all the time. Why is this an issue NOW? I turn 21 in a couple of weeks…so what the hell is your problem?” Granted this is from the National Inquirer, but I can definitely picture Hayden getting saucy! After all, it's not her first nightclub run-in regarding her underage status. Just hope she won't forget her ID next time!

READY TO SCREAM

Hayden Panettiere seen on Jul 20 2010 in Detroit, Michigan. Looking perky on set, Hayden Panettiere heads to work while chatting with co-star Emma Roberts in Detroit, Michigan on July 20. The young starlets are new additions to the latest chapter of the Scream saga, joining the horror flick's famous David Arquette, Courteney Cox and Neve Campbell to revamp the iconic shriek inducing series. Em and HP both headed to work in comfy mukluks, with Hayden taking the more stylish wardrobe picks. Hayden was styled in a cropped leather jacket (love BB Dakota's Washed Leather Moto Jacket in Black for fall) with a loose charcoal tank (like Joe's Jeans' Anika Tank in Ash) and some interesting tie-dyed skinny jeans (keep it simple with Habitual Jeans' Audrey in Pretender). What do you think of the black splotches around her hips, would you wear these? Hayden completed the look with a tassel necklace (add a quirky touch with Ettika's Horn Braided Deerskin Chain Tassel Necklace in Light Brown), wearing her short hair pinned back from her face. What are your thoughts on her look, minus the footwear? For you Scream fans, Hayden recently dished to MTV about how excited she is to be involved in the flick, but for some of the film's original cast it has even more meaning to be back on the set. David Arquette chatted with People about his excitement: "It's really been kind of a trip for me to say the least. I met my wife on the first one 14 years ago or something and now we have a child. There's this weird element that, you know, it's very cathartic for me… It's just kind of going back to where it all started. It's really amazing working with Neve [Campbell] and Courteney and [director] Wes [Craven] and all of the crewmembers that we've known for 14 years." How exciting for Hayden to be part of such an epic franchise!

CROPPED CUTIE

Hayden Panettiere seen on Jun 21 2010 in West Hollywood, CA. Enjoying the LA sunshine, Hayden Panettiere takes an afternoon lunch with boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko in West Hollywood on June 21. The happy couple cooled off on the sweltering summer day with a casual lunch at Le Pain Quotidien, enjoying some time together before HP gets busy filming Scream 4 at the end of the month. For her casual outing Hayden started with a loose cropped tee (keep it breezy with Splendid's Vintage Whisper Crop Tee in Citrus or Rebel Yell's Lightning Crop T in Charcoal) over an easy white tank and cuffed denim shorts (like Joe's Jeans' Roll Short in Blanchet). Hayden added relaxed tan sandals (similar to Farylrobin's Whitney in Brown) and carried a roomy messenger bag over her shoulder (try Linea Pelle's Dylan Messenger in Espresso) with gold rimmed aviators completing the casual look. What do you think of Hayden's summer style, are you feeling the crop top look? In the photo on the left it definitely looks to me like HP is looking a little more toned lately, further emphasized by recent bikini beach pics showing off her tight muscles. Maybe her athletic new beau is inspiring her to hit the gym a little harder these days? Either way she's looking great!

NEW HAIR... AGAIN!

Hayden Panettiere seen on Jun 09 2010 in Nashville, TN. Looking pretty as a pixie, Hayden Panettiere shows off her edgy new bob at the 2010 CMT Music Awards in Nashville, TN on June 9. This is the third or fourth major tress transformation we've seen from HP in the past few months, and I have to say this one is my fav so far. Besides injecting a little youth into her face, Hayden gives us a fresh reminder just how sassy her style can be. For this event she chose a sexy black lace mini with rich turquoise panels draping in all the right places (let your lace peek through in Carter's Cowl Neck Lace Land Dress in Black, or if you love the blue hue try Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent's Drape Front Dress in Blue or Voom by Joy Han's Sandra Bubble Dress in Green), complementing the frock with black satin peeptoes (add a little texture with Coye Nokes' Jacqueline 70 Peep Toe in Black). Hayden added some drama with smoky eye makeup, completing the look with a sexy nude lip and black nail polish. What are your thoughts, readers – does she nail this look or is it too risqué? From long auburn locks to short, straight and strawberry blonde, Hayden's hair has come full circle in just three months. Gotta wonder how it's not falling out at this point! Which shade is your fav?

SCREAMING TO A THEATER NEAR YOU

Hayden Panettiere seen on Jun 02 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Enjoying a sunny summer day, Hayden Panettiere strolls around Los Angeles in a casual look on June 2. HP got the day off to a comfy start in an oversized cocoon top (check out Carter's breezy Oversized Bamboo Blouse in Burnt Peach) and faded black J Brand skinnies (get the look with Tag Jeans' Brentwood Skinny in Dark Navy). Hayden added neutral flip-flops with a metal accent on the strap (like Farylrobin's super wearable Whitney in Brown), carrying her studded fold-over bag slung to her side (very similar to Novella Royale's Clover Studded Bag in Grey) as she kept her peepers shaded in classic Ray-Ban aviators. She's not putting in a whole lot of effort here but I'm loving the easy, casual vibe she's rocking. What are your thoughts on this style, so-so or something you would wear? Despite her show Heroes being canceled, HP has a lot to smile about these days – she just landed a starring roll in the latest scary saga, Scream 4. The unforgettable series is back with some of the original cast, including Courteney Cox and David Arquette, but will add some newbies including Hayden and Emma Roberts to the bill. I'm not one to gush over scary movies, but how excited are you to hear Hayden Scream?

NO LUCK FOR HEROES

Hayden Panettiere seen on May 18 2010 in Monte Carlo, Monaco. Lucky to have caught a flight to Europe in time for the Cannes festivities, Hayden Panettiere tears it up on the red carpet of the World Music Awards on May 18 in Monte Carlo, Monaco. It seems like odd timing to have a music ceremony clashing with the dozens of Cannes film premieres and events, but I'd like to know why someone also thought it would be a great idea to have 2 actresses who have no musical talent to host the event. Go figure! Regardless of the interesting selection, HP sizzled on the red carpet in a ferocious Emilio Pucci leopard print mini with an asymmetrical shoulder detail (heat up the night in Wit's Banded Animal Print Party Dress in Blue Animal or Wish's Calligraphic Blouse in Black) with gold peeptoe heels (love the boa texture of Coye Nokes' Grace D'Orsay in Gold) and a matching clutch (shine on with Whiting & Davis' Shirred Frame Clutch in Gold). Keeping up with her mature style, Hayden swept her hair back into a twist and complemented the look with smoky eyes and bronze cheeks. She seems to be straying dangerously close to her old sausage mini ways, but I think the sleeves help to balance this racy look. What are your thoughts, is it too cheeky or is Hayden still continuing on her recent grown-up style path? Hayden was one of the lucky aforementioned actresses to host the event, joined by Michelle Rodriguez at the podium. Even if it is a little random, all I have to say is that at least someone is giving HP some love! After starring in Heroes for four seasons, CW announced last week the show is officially canceled. Bummer for Hayden! They also announced which new shows will be premiering in the fall, and HP's hopeful CW pilot, HMS, sadly wasn't one of the lucky ones chosen. Now that her cheerleading days are officially behind her, I wonder what Hayden's next step will be?

EARTH DAY ELEGANT

Hayden Panettiere seen on Apr 22 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Debuting a daring new 'do, Hayden Panettiere hits the red carpet at a special Earth Day screening of Avatar at the Nokia Theatre in downtown Los Angeles on April 22. HP stepped out with her boxing boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko at her side, dispelling rumors the smitten new couple split over the weekend. Hayden is a well known friend of the earth (don't forget the dolphins!) so it's no surprise she got all dolled up for the Earth Day charity event produced by Words That Shook The World. In this shot Hayden's gazing up to say hello, but this time not to her 7 foot tall boyfriend – the Na'vi creatures were out in full force on the red carpet! I'm still in awe of HP's dazzling new 'do, trading in her recent auburn extensions for cropped, slicked back tresses. I don't know if this is a look she can pull off every day, but it looks great with her short and sassy Emilio Pucci frock (if you love the lacy look try Gold Hawk's Poncho with Lace in Black or the Sleeveless Embroidered Drape Dress in Black). Hayden kept the uber short hem classy with noir stockings and black satin pumps to match (love the knot details on Gwyneth Shoes' Paulette in Black), carrying a shiny black box clutch (love Whiting & Davis' Crystal Accents Minaudiere in Black) and painting her nails a matching tar shade. What do you think of Hayden's sophisticated new look – will it last? HP seems to be joining a long list of celebs who have chopped of their locks lately as the temps warm up, from Heidi Klum to Entourage star Adrian Grenier. Are any of you taking the plunge for the summer months?

BOA BANDEAU BABE

Hayden Panettiere seen on Apr 14 2010 in Hollywood, CA. Heading out for a special dinner treat, Hayden Panettiere peaces out of Boa steakhouse in Hollywood on April 14. HP had just wrapped up a decadent meal with her mama and Ukrainian beau Wladimir Klitschko, who has been visiting her in LA for the past 2 weeks. Stepping out in a stylish look, Hayden dared to wear tight white jeans (check out 7 For All Mankind's Straight Leg in Clean White) with a taupe cardi blazer (similar to Monrow's Fleece Jacket in Heather Grey if you like the look) and polished nude pumps (I love the texture of Coye Nokes' Jacqueline Pump in Sabbia Embossed Python or go for plain patent with the Jacqueline Pump in Taupe Patent). HP must really love her leopard bandeau – she wore it just 2 weeks ago to attend her little brother's premiere in LA, but this time paired it with tonal scoop top (opt for Splendid's Light Jersey Heather V Tee in Mud). Lastly, Hayden covered her extension free tresses with a taupe fedora decorated with a satiny blue band. What do you think of her look here, is it something you would wear? I'm generally not a fan of white pants, especially skinny ones, even though they fit her fine there's just something so stark that doesn't sit well with me. The leopard bandeau seems out of place and cheapens the look – sorry HP! Like so many celebs, Hayden and her man made their way to the Southern CA desert this weekend for the Coachella Music Festival. Hayden was spotted having a blast snapping pics with her paparazzi style lens – maybe if the whole Heroes thing doesn't work out she has something to fall back on!

LITTLE BRO LOVE

Hayden Panettiere seen on Apr 05 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Looking very polished, Hayden Panettiere arrives at the LA premiere of The Perfect Game at the Grove's Pacific Theaters on April 5. Hayden's little bro Jansen stars in the flick with other youngsters Ryan Ochoa, Moises Arias and Jake T. Austin, and HP came out with her boxing boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko to check out her brother's debut. Hayden strolled into the theatre looking like a polished prepster in her fedora hat, boyfriend blazer (check out Isabel Lu's Flap Oversized Blazer in Navy Black) and shiny liquid leggings (similar to Bejeweled's Metallic Legging in Black). HP layered a plunging white v-neck (like Joe's Jeans' Blake Crinkle V Tee in White) over a leopard spotted bandeau and added straight gold earrings (I adore Jules Smith's Love Struck Fallen Kiss Earring in Gold) and a sleek black clutch (check out the unique pleats on Violet New York City's Spotlight in Black) to complete the look. I think this a fun and sassy 'fit but I'm not sure why she chose nude Louboutins to complete the look. It's funny that so many celebs have been pairing heavy black heels with lighter looks, and she chooses light heels that look equally out of place. Would you have chosen the same shade or opted for something darker? It appears from these pics that footwear isn't the only department Hayden is going light in – looks like she's returned to her natural blonde tresses after a brief stint as a redhead. Her hair color may be back to normal, but looking back at the photos reminds me that her sophisticated style as of late may be here to stay. Blazers, polished clutches and svette heels – when did Hayden Panettiere get so grown up?

AGE IS JUST A NUMBER

Hayden Panettiere seen on Mar 07 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Looking uber sophisticated, Hayden Panettiere reminds us she's doing her best to grow up at the Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar Viewing Party in LA on March 7. At an event where she could easily have played it safe with one of her trademark tube minis, Hayden went the elegant route with a luscious chocolate brown gown with a keyhole knotted neckline and playful pleats around the bust enhancing the tulip shape of the skirt (to get your maxi on at your next glam event, try Sue Wong's Ombre Beaded Long Dress in Mocha/Brown or Tt Collection's Cristophe Double Layer Gown in Taupe/Black with a gorgeous back cowl). Love the croc clutch adding texture to the silky satin gown (try Jalda's Croc Original Clutch in Chocolate) but her heels could have been a little more exciting (a neutral like Samanta's Viv Peep in Brown would be less distracting and would continue to play up the textural mixing). What's up with so many celebs ruining great looks with heavy black heels these days? As a final touch, Hayden wore her hair pulled back with tons of volume at the crown, showing off an ornate pair of earrings (loving the vintage vibe of Allison Daniel's Double Vintage Floral Vine Earring in Jet Stone). I'm definitely getting the vibe that with the dark hair and sophisticated attire, Hayden is really trying to impress us with her maturity – is anyone else feeling this? Besides reminding us she's growing up, HP might have another reason to strive to look a little older – she's smitten with her new beau, Ukrainian boxing champ Wladimir Klitschko, who at 33 yrs old comes in as her oldest bf to date. HP and WK were first spotted together in Miami frolicking in the sun over the holidays, bringing in the New Year together in the southern hotspot. She then attended a German music event with her beau as her escort, and you can see from the pictures at 5'1" she barely comes up to his shoulder, even with heels on! Despite what some may think about their 13 year age gap, Hayden confidently told the press: “[Age is] just a number. It’s not something that comes up in a typical conversation.” Unless that conversation involves HP's string of past loves, including 32 year old Heroes co-star Milo Ventimiglia, 28 year old restaurateur Harry Morton and 32 year old Briitsh TV presenter Steve Jones. Hmm, I'm sensing a pattern here! What are your thoughts on young girls dating older men, readers?

COVE QUEST CONTINUES

Hayden Panettiere seen on Mar 04 2010 in West Hollywood, CA. Finally showing off her radiant red tresses, Hayden Panettiere steps out in a very polished 'fit at a cocktail reception for The Cove in West Hollywood on March. Hayden attended the party celebrating the Academy Award nominated documentary before stopping by the Artists for Peace & Justice event and winding down the night with some friends afterwards. It's the first time HP has showed off her new red locks and oh my, are they red! The overall look is a little jarring but I do have to say I like the dark, dramatic color with her light eyes and fair skin. She certainly looks more grown up – although the attire doesn't hurt either. Hayden stuck to her instincts with a super short strapless mini (check out Jenny Han's Tube Mini Dress in Black) but kept it conservative with a black blazer (like Blaque Label's 3/4 Sleeve Jacket in Black) and classic black Louboutins (love the embossed texture of Coye Nokes' Jacqueline Pump in Black Crocco). HP accessorized with a silver box clutch (check out Whiting & Davis' Crystal Accents Minaudiere in Silver) and simple silver bracelet (can't go wrong with Michele Michel's Bracelet in Silver). What do you think of the whole look, does it work for Ms. Panettiere? Hayden was all smiles at the party celebrating The Cove, but she makes a dramatic appearance in the film sobbing after a failed attempt to save dolphins from slaughter by Japanese fishermen during the 2007 trip that earned her an arrest warrant for protesting. I saw a clip of the film as I watched the Oscars tonight and was shocked to see the footage of the cove turned red after the seasonal hunt. I think that I, like many, had no idea the kinds of horrible atrocities happen to animals beyond the protection of US waters and hope Hayden continuing to bring attention to this issue will make a difference! Have any of you had a chance to see the movie?

DOLPHINS, LAWS & POLITICS

Hayden Panettiere seen on Feb 24 2010 in Los Angeles, CA. Not letting a little rain impact her social life, Hayden Panettiere came out to support her friend Elijah Blue, aka Cher's son, at an event he hosted at the Kantor Gallery in Hollywood on February 24. HP arrived in a cozy charcoal cardigan with a criss-cross attached scarf (check out CoutureCandy's cozy options for chilly weather like Ella Moss' Viola Cocoon in Charcoal) over a plain white tee, distressed skinnies (check out Siwy's Rose Drainpipe Skinny Jeans in Wonder) and black side zip ankle boots (try Martha Davis' Superhero Short Boot in Black ). Very laidback and comfy, but what caught my eye was Hayden's gorgeous sapphire blue studded tote (turn heads with a similarly bold bag like Laura Matthews Designs' Pony Hair Satchel in Blue). As usual Hayden pulled her hair back in a tight pony – I seriously don't think she's worn it down since she cut it short last year! She also tried out red lipstick for the night, which ages her quite a bit but I actually don't think it's a bad thing – you can only look and act the part of a 16 year old cheerleader for so long! As many of you may know, Hayden has long been a vocal activist to protect marine life around the globe, speaking out to protect dolphins as often as possible and even getting arrested for protesting in Japan in 2007. In this month's issue of Self magazine, HP took to the cover to speak out about her role in the new documentary The Cove and how she believes she'll make a difference: “I left knowing I’m not going to let those dolphins die in vain. Their deaths will help show the world the big picture. I’ve also taken a lot of trips to D.C. and met with senators about the issue. I even met with Barack Obama, when he was campaigning. He said he grew up in Hawaii so dolphins and whales are very close to him. I knew I had two minutes to reel off what I wanted to get across. He was larger than life and so nice. Laws and politics—that’s where things change.” Doesn't hurt when you have the big man in the White House on your side either!

REDHEAD ON THE RED CARPET

Hayden Panettiere seen on Jan 30 2010 in Hamburg, Germany. Hayden Panettiere flaunts her curves with her new boyfriend at her side at the Best of Musical Gala 2010 in Hamburg, Germany on January 30. HP is dating Ukranian boxer Wladimir Klitschko, spotted hanging out with him in Miami over New Year's Eve weekend and smooching goodbye at the airport after attending the musical gala together. HP stood out in a vibrant teal mini with gold sequins lining the pockets and bustier (Interlud's Layered Art Deco Mini in Teal is a perfect bust boosting option, or play up the pop color with Meghan Fabulous' Ricki Dress in Teal). Hayden is once again expressing her penchant for super tight minis, and as usual she looks like she's suffocating. This time I love the dress, just wish it were a size bigger! HP accessorized with gold hoops (try CC Skye's Lady Hawk Cobra Hooks in Gold) and taupe heels (Coye Nokes' Jacqueline Pump in Taupe Patent will complement any 'fit). I think gold heels might have been a better choice to accent the dress, but when you can't decide a neutral nude is always a good way to play it safe. What do you think of Ms. Panettiere's style here? You can barely tell with the ponytail, but HP recently changed up her look, trading her trademark platinum tresses for a revitalized red shade. At the musical shindig, Hayden joked with the press about her new look: “It’s fun to change things up… and I feel I don’t have to overcompensate as much personality-wise when I have red hair as I do with blonde hair.” Interesting perspective! Do any of you blondes turned red heads or brunettes feel the same?

SOUTH BEACH STARLET

Hayden Panettiere seen on Dec 31 2009 in Miami, FL. Happily soaking up the sun, Hayden Panettiere flirts with the photogs while relaxing at South Beach in Miami, FL on December 31. While working on her pre-NYE tan Hayden donned a hot pink triangle bikini (like Poko Pano's Shimmer in Fuchsia) covered up with a modest Grecian style white cover-up (try Vix Swimwear's Ruffle Tunic in White or Brette Sandler's Lola Tunic in Cream), protecting her peepers with stealthy black sunnies. Hayden carried her sandals at her side (add to the goddess vibe with Andrea and Joen's Luster in Gold) and was all smiles while spending a day mingling at the beach with other young Hollywood celebs. What do you think of her conservative beach style? HP headed south for the NYE bash of the lifetime – a blowout Lady Gaga performance at the Fountainebleu Hotel complete with 13 costume changes and 15,000 fans. Hayden attended the Monster Ball concert with pal Kevin Connelly of Entourage, blogger Perez Hilton and Chace Crawford of Gossip Girl. How did you CoutureCandy readers spend your New Year's Eves – and more importantly, what did you wear?

RAINY DAY DUDS

Hayden Panettiere seen on Dec 05 2009 in West Hollywood, CA. Getting down to Urth, Hayden Panettiere grabbed a latte at the popular West Hollywood café on December 5. Is it just me or did it seem like LA turned from summer to winter overnight? From celebs wearing strapless dresses to events the night before, HP suited up for the chilly temps in a cushy down jacket (loving Walter's Stretch Liquid Anorak in Black) over a casual tie-dye tank (Zoa's Racer Back Tunic Tank with Sequin Pocket in Blue Jean is a great day or night pick) and faded skinnies (like True Religion's Billy Super T in Med Lovestruck). A rainy day 'fit wouldn't be complete without Uggs, and Hayden wore the classic short version with long fringe swinging from the top. I'm all for adding a little fringe but there are some things that just shouldn't be combined with Uggs! What are your thoughts? Hayden accessorized with a slouchy hobo with a long strap over her shoulder (combine the fringe and the easy tote style with CC Skye's Janey Fringe Hobo Bag in Grey with Silver Fringe) and bright peacock feather earrings. What do you think of HP's uber casual style? If you're not a Heroes fan, you might know Hayden best from her long running Neutrogena commercials. The cosmetics super giant just posted a cute bloopers video on YouTube featuring all of the young stars who've appeared in recent campaigns, including Vanessa Hudgens, Emma Roberts and Gabrielle Union. Check out the clip and see what you think of HP's not so perfect moments!

HP SAVES THE WHALES!

Hayden Panettiere seen on Nov 15 2009 in West Hollywood, CA. Heroes hottie Hayden Panettiere shows off a bangin' new cut while walking the green carpet as the host of the Whaleman Foundation benefit, held at Beso in West Hollywood on November 15. Hayden has been a long time supported of saving the whales, pointing enthusiastically to the "Save the Whales Again!" press wall. HP arrived in a taupe off shoulder mini (try Shumaq's Emily Strapless Wool Dress in Beige) with a shiny black clutch (similar to GoldenBleu's Amanda Clutch in Black/White) and strappy tan heels (love Andrea & Joen's Sierra in Camel). Hayden accessorized with two gold cuffs (shine with CC Skye's Bardot Cuff in Gold), one which was auctioned off for the Whaleman Foundation later that evening! What do you think of Hayden's look? The bangs definitely make her look even younger than she already looks, but I like the balance of texture and color in her 'fit. Just wish the dress was a liiiittle bit longer! While playing hostess at the benefit, HP schmoozed with other animal loving stars including Kevin Connolly, Darryl Hannah, and Sean Paul. Cue another story about Hayden hooking up with her Entourage pal right… now. The last time rumors surfaced about HP and Kevin, she laughed it off: "I've known Kevin for so long… You can't have friends with the opposite sex. It's so funny. We're just friends." It is just me or did she say something similar about dating former co-star Milo Ventimiglia?

WORKIN' LEATHER SKINNIES

Hayden Panettiere seen on Nov 02 2009 in West Hollywood, CA. Hayden Panettiere shows off her toned tush in head-to-toe Jimmy Choo for H&M at the launch party for the new line in West Hollywood on November 2. HP rocked leather leggings (try Rock & Republic's Melissa Leggings in Black) with a sequined zipper front jacket (go for the glitzy look with 7 For All Mankind's Sequin Blazer in Ash), a zebra clutch (I love the pattern on Moyna Handbag's Beaded Clutch in Black/White) and sparkly peep-toes, all from the same new collection designed by Tamara Mellon, Jimmy Choo founder. HP accented the look with small silver earrings (like Michele Michel's Droplets Earring in Silver). Hayden has a lot going on with all the textures and sparkles – do you think she pulls it off? I'm not entirely convinced, but her hair and makeup look amazing! At the event she gushed about how much she loves the new line, “Tamara is so brilliant and such a wonderful designer. Her shoes are incredible. I do my shopping sprees at H&M. I was recently in Italy and instead of going to other stores, I went to H&M.” That's some serious brand loyalty!

HP TALKS ABOUT THE KISS

Hayden Panettiere seen on Oct 11 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. Hayden Panettiere gets classy for the 2009 Hollywood Style Awards in LA on October 11, held at the Armand Hammer Museum. HP picked a vibrant lilac Dennis Basso Spring 2010 frock with a fitted bodice and draped pleats at the hips and shoulders (feel the purple vibe in Walter's Plum Satin Crepe Dress in Purple or Gold Hawk's CB Sheer Overlay Dress in Plum). She can't seem to stray from uber short hems, but with the high neck and sleeves this one works for her. I would even go so far as to say she looks like she could be tall – or at least taller than 5'1"! Hayden accessorized the look with a shiny Lauren Merkin "Eve" clutch (try Antoinette Lee's Vita Snake Clutch in Gold with a glittery cocktail ring (like Citrine by the Stones' Dome Ring in Gold) and gold cuff (like Marnie Bugs' Leslie Cuff in Python). Love the braided coif, even if it is a little Lauren Conrad-esque. What do you think of HP's style? Last week I wrote about Hayden's upcoming Heroes episode where she smooched her college roomie. The episode aired Monday and rumor has it HP was actually the one who suggested the girl-on-girl action. She's talked about experimenting with girlfriends in the past, so it's not surprising she would be into the idea. She talked to The Sun about her character's new fling: "It's very exciting! When you are young, you experiment and you have fun. It truly is a person that she just falls in love with, because she fulfills her and she is her best friend." What do you think of Hayden's steamy new love affair?

HEROES GIRLS GONE WILD?

Hayden Panettiere seen on Oct 01 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. Looking perky and pretty in plaid, Hayden Panettiere stopped to show her fans some love on the way in to ABC Studios to tape Jimmy Kimmel Live! in Los Angeles on Oct 1 . Although HP wore a sexy red dress on the show, she arrived in a much more casual 'fit, opting for a comfy turquoise plaid top (try Raw 7's Plaid Button Down Crystal Cross Shirt in Grey) with white short-shorts (like Hudson Jeans' appropriately named Hayden Signature Short in White) and fringed moccasin boots (accessorize with a fringed bag like Novella Royale's Liv Fringe Bag in Brown Multi, made of recycled leather jackets). Hayden kept her accessories simple with a dome ring (I'm sure she'd go for Ettika's Love in Peace Ring in Gold) and tan purse, arriving with her hair already curled and stage makeup done. What do you think of her casual look? Earlier this week, NBC attempted to revive slumping ratings for "Heroes" by releasing a sexy photo from next Monday's episode a few days early. The photo shows HP locking lips with her roomie on the show, and according to "Heroes" bloggers things are going to heat up a lot more than that! What do you think of NBC's last ditch effort to save "Heroes"? I say, if they had to do something desperate, at least it will boost HP's role!

NEUTROGENA NATURALS

Hayden Panettiere seen on Sep 26 2009 in Hollywood, CA. Looking gorgeous while posing together spokesmodels, Hayden Panettiere and Vanessa Hudgens hung out at VH1 Save The Music Foundation's Neutrogena Fresh Faces Music Benefit on Sept 26 at Jim Henson Studies in Hollywood. Both arrived in tan strapless dresses (lighten up with Shumaq's Emily Strapless Wool Dress in Beige, Prairie NY's Garden Dress in Crème or even something as simple as Qi's Jersey Cami Slip in Taupe), Hayden opting for red python Sergio Rossi heels and Vanessa in grey snakeskin pumps to complement her mini. What do you think of the 'fit and footwear coordination? Vanessa styled her mini with a long pendant necklace (similar to Citrine by the Stones' Free Dome Pendant in Gold) and stacked bangles(like Alex and Ani's Joie de Vivre Expandable Wire Bangle Set in Gold). Hayden went for a more conservative look, wearing a flattering taupe frock with a shirred chiffon bodice and tacky bow. As usual HP's dress is too tight in the bust - is it me or is she in dire need of an intervention? Hayden also carried a Christian Louboutin gold and ivory box clutch (it's not identical but it reminds me of Julie K's Gigi Mini Bag in Pewter) and kept the jewelry to a single gold bangle. What I love about them together is that I would've expected Hayden to arrive in the shorter mini, and Vanessa would definitely have outshone her if she did! To give Neutrogena credit, both girls have gorgeous hair and makeup. Which look do you think works best?

HP'S NEW OLDER MAN?

Hayden Panettiere seen on Sep 20 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. I'm still not really sure how I feel about Hayden Panettiere in this bright red frock on the 2009 Emmy's red carpet in Los Angeles on Sept 20, but I think her J. Mendel Resort 2010 dress deserves a mention. The layers of silk and chiffon are gorgeously draped in the rich red shade (turn heads with frocks like Ingwa Melero's Angelina Maxi Dress in Coral, LaROK's Laguna Beach Dress in Flame or Interlud's Stitch Hem Halter Dress in Red), accented with a Fred Leighton serpent necklace with matching gold disk earrings (try Citrine by the Stone's Free Dome Earring in Gold) and a shiny box clutch by Judith Leiber (check out Moyna Handbag's exquisite Glass Beaded Tote in Taupe). I love the dramatic old Hollywood look with the pin curls and the gold accessories, but I have to wonder when Hayden will finally learn what does and doesn't flatter her petite figure. The bandage bodices just have to go! The dress is stunning but it cuts into her chest on the left side – if the sleeves had covered both soldiers, problem solved. What do you all think of HP's Emmys look? She wasn't the only star who opted to for crimson: Debra Messing and Blake Lively were some of the other honorable mentions in this hue. While most stars at the Emmy after parties are looking celebrate their work, HP found another reason to get excited: her newfound romance with Entourage star Kevin Connelly! Hayden was spotted getting up close and personal with him at the post-show HBO Emmy party, where an eyewitness told the paps: “They were there to hang out together and stayed for hours until well after midnight. Kevin only left Hayden’s side towards the end of the night when he wanted to chat with someone at another table.” We all know HP has a thing for older men – her exes include co-star Milo Ventimiglia, 32 and British entertainer Steve Jones, 31 – so it's believable she'd fall for Entourage's sweetest star. What do you think of the alleged new couple?

PUPPY PALS

Hayden Panettiere seen on Sep 04 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. Animal lover Hayden Panettiere takes her new puppy out for a stroll while shopping on Melrose and getting her nails done on Sept 4 in LA. Battling the heat in micro mini shorts (if you have the legs to bare, try True Religion's Joey Cut Off Short in Medium Drifter) and a loose peasant top (opt for Karen Zambos' Caitlyn Top in Python) with flip-flops (like Twisted Heart's Big Heart Flip Flops in Navy) and a mahogany tote over her shoulder (check out Carla Mancini's Large Shoulder Bag with Lock Detail in Copper). What do you think of HP's casual end of summer 'fit? Hayden is known in Hollywood for her animal rights activism (her anti dolphin hunting protest in Japan earned her an arrest warrant 2 years ago), so it's no surprise to see her making a new furry friend. A little praise from PETA doesn't hurt either, but it's for HP's actions on the set of Heroes when a crew member pointed a leaf blower at noisy birds in a tree on set over the summer. The animal rights org quoted her as screaming, "What are you doing? How would you like someone to blow that thing inside your house?" at the man responsible. You tell 'em Hayden!

HP'S MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION

Hayden Panettiere seen on Aug 09 2009 in Universal City, CA. How refreshing to see Hayden Panettiere trying out a new look! Kidding. In all honestly, I can't deny I kind of like HP's baby pink Zac Posen dress she picked for the 2009 Teen Choice Awards in Universal City, CA on August 9. I wish she'd picked something that clings less to the curves she doesn't have, but the sexy shirred center seam and appropriate length help this pass as one of her better looks (create a similar sexy look for yourself with CoutureCandy's sweet frocks like Rachel Pally's Patricia Dress in Guava or Lotta Stensson's sexy Shirred Dress in Black). Do you think it works for her or would it be better for someone else? Hayden also usually sticks to the basics and never seems to do anything special with her hair, but I like the curled tendrils with the princess vibe. Her fav peeptoe nude Loubs are getting a little stale, but I'm not sure what else would work with such a pale frock. Hayden also wore gorgeous Bulgari teardrop earrings and bracelet (try Kuo Ting's Frosted Teardrop Earrings in Sterling Silver with Jessica Elliot's Open Clover Cuff in Sterling Silver). What do you think of the 'fit? HP was also showing off her misspelled tattoo, "Vivere senza rimipianti," which would mean "Live without regrets" if there wasn't an extra "i" in the last word. At least she's trying to look at it in a positive way: "I got a phone call telling me about it [in Cannes], and then I'm running around like a chicken with its head cut off, yelling, "Get me a dictionary!"... It's so typical of something that would happen to me. So mortifying. I'll probably get it fixed, but in the meantime, I'll just say I was putting my own twist on it." Earlier this month, Katy Perry answered a $50,000 question on Millionaire for St. Jude's charity: "What young celebrity has the Italian phrase for "Live without regrets" tattooed on her back, except the Italian word for "regrets" is misspelled?" Not surprisingly, KP got it right, and called her bff Shannon just to use a lifeline. At least Hayden's mistake is worth such a generous charity donation!

SINGLE AND MINGLING

Hayden Panettiere seen on Jul 25 2009 in San Diego, CA. Hitting the Comic-Con 2009 festival in San Diego, Hayden Panettiere got all dolled up for the "Entertainment Weekly and Syfy Invade Comic-Con" after party at the Hotel Solamar on July 25. I hate that she's back to her slutty strapless ways, but HP's Zuhair Murad Spring 2009 draped cocktail dress is gorgeous. Even if you don't care for her style you have to admit the bright magenta shade has her tan absolutely glowing (try frocks in a similar shade like Sky's Wyatt Fleur di Lis Mini in Purple or Interlud's Stone Detail Tiered Dress in Lilac). Combined with sexy Christian Louboutins, a petite barrel clutch (like Julie K's Natalie Clutch in Earth) and a shiny black cocktail ring (opt for CC Skye's Niko Ring in Mirror and Black Resin), I think HP really knocked this one outta the park. Do you any of you think she could have done better? While fulfilling her Heroes duties at Comic-Con, HP got an interesting request from a big fan: "Can I see you up close?" Watch the vid to see how HP reacts! Although Hayden was seated next to her ex Milo Ventimiglia, she says she's perfectly comfortable moving on after their breakup. She's been spotted cozying up to British TV producer Stephen Jones, but she cleared up rumors about their dating sitch earlier this month: "I'm single and mingling. Steve lives in London, the distance is a bit too much. I'm not dating anyone specifically and I'm not looking for a house with anyone." Wonder how Milo is handling all of this?

HAYDEN'S FASHION FRENZY

Hayden Panettiere seen on Jul 06 2009 in New York, NY.

She's not usually known for trend setting style, but Hayden Panettiere has been frolicking all over New York City this week, promoting her new flick I Love You Beth Cooper and showing off her taste for designer duds at the same time. Starting with "The Late Show with David Letterman" on July 6, HP arrived at NYC's Ed Sullivan Theater in a sexy black lace mini by Caroline Seikaly paired with smokin' hot Stuart Weitzman heels. The finishing touch: chunky House of Lavande rings on each hand (go for the bold look with Michele Michel's Adjustable Hammered Dome Ring in Silver). It's a racy dress but I think the curled tendrils really soften the look – what do you think?

Winding down after her "Late Night," HP headed over to MTV Studios in Times Square for "It's On with Alexa Chung" the following morning, opting to cater to her younger fans with a pale pink mini dress by Elizabeth and James (if you can't resist the pink hue, try Ingwa Melero's Elena Mini Dress in Pink Combo or Gold Hawk's Two Tone Morph Dress in Geranium Pink). I'm pretty much obsessed with her uber fierce Giuseppe Zanotti open-toe booties, but I'm not sure I'm crazy about the bell sleeves – do you think Hayden can pull off the mod look? The plum Nancy Gonzalez clutch and gold medallion earrings also add a nice twist to this trendy 'fit. Would any of you style the dress differently?

After her trip to MTV, Hayden headed back to her hotel to primp for a few hours before emerging at the NYC premiere of I Love You Beth Cooper, held at AMC Lincoln Square Tuesday evening. Getting glam in an Andy & Debb white asymmetrical dress with a blouson waist, Hayden went for the classic Hollywood look with voluminous curls and rouge lips. Love the elegant Giuseppe Zanotti metallic pumps with the dainty ankle strap, and the plump satin Nancy Gonzalez clutch works well with the look (if you're in need of a new evening bag, Posse New York's Natalie in Pearl Tan or Pearl White is a great versatile pick), but it bothers me a little that it's so similar to Cameron Diaz's look at the premiere of My Sister's Keeper 2 weeks ago. Either they have the same stylist or HP is a copycat!

Still going strong 3 days in a row, Hayden rounded out her press tour with an appearance on "Live with Regis and Kelly" on Wednesday morning. Arriving a beaded Zac Posen top with a matching mini, HP carried the same satin clutch from the night before and stuck to classic nude Christian Louboutins to balance her 'fit. Love the fluttery neckline, but I wish the dress was a slightly different color – it almost seems like it washes her out a little, no?

While she stayed true to her super short style in all of her appearances this week, it's evident Hayden's style is finally maturing. Which look is your fav?

HAYDEN ROCKS N' HEELS

Hayden Panettiere seen on Jun 14 2009 in Culver City, CA. Getting glammed up for charity, Hayden Panettiere arrived at the Rock-N-Reel benefit at Culver Studios in Culver City on June 14. She's always hit or miss when it comes to her wardrobe choices, but Hayden's style seems to be improving a little lately. Maybe because she's getting older? For the event HP paired a classy white Helmut Lang blazer (try Mike & Chris' casual Sammy Fleece Blazer in Bone) over a body hugging TopShop denim tube dress (check out Lotta Stensson's more forgiving Shirred Tube Dress in Peacock, which also comes in Plum, Black, Poppy, or Orange) and sexy studded Loubs. I don't know about the super tight mini but those heels are gorgeous! She kept the accessories at a minimum, choosing a slender bangle (like Rachel Leigh's Sweet Tooth Bangle in Gold), petite charm necklace (try Femme Metale's Pierced Heart Necklace in Silver) and classy diamond studs. What do you think of Hayden's look? I think it would've been more exciting if she wore her hair down for a change, but the heels are enough to distract anyone! Hayden has been super busy lately, spotted working on the set of Heroes in LA, running errands and picking up some new glasses earlier this week. There have been a lot of good and not so good stories about her in the tabloids lately, and HP recently mouthed off about the effect her actions (dating older men, pregnancy scares, partying in Cannes, and so on) have on young female fans: “I think the only problem with attempting to be a role model is the fact that you just want to go, ‘okay, I’ll be a role model for you'. I’d love to, but don’t expect me to be perfect because I’m not and I do screw up and I do make mistakes and I can’t always think of everyone else and what they’re going to say. Because at the end of the day the only person you can make happy is yourself. No matter whether it’s wrong or right or looks good or looks bad, somebody will hate it. Somebody will.” What do you think of Hayden's harsh yet honest words?

LOOSEN UP MY BUTTONS

Hayden Panettiere seen on Jun 10 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. Always on the go, Hayden Panettiere arrived at the Los Angeles International Airport on June 7 in good spirits. Spotted checking her messages at the baggage claim while waiting for her giant LV suitcase to arrive, HP made her way to her car with a few friends in tow. It seems like everyone is jumping on the revived button-down shirt trend, and HP tried the look for herself with a long version with rolled cuffs (get the look with Splendid's Check Shirt Dress in Navy/White or 3J Workshop's Petronia Shirt in Thin Blue Stripe), adding to the laid back look with faded skinny jeans (like 1921 Jeans' Slim Jean in Medium) and girly ballet flats. Rocking classic black Wayfarers with a metallic tote over her shoulder (add a little flair with Julie K's Nicole Flat Bag in Sand Python), Hayden makes the scrub look work. What do you think of her button-up look? HP is known for taking the casual route as often as possible, but she recently spoke out about how hard it is to be her normal, scrubby self now that she's a celebrity: “I live in criticism every day… I used to walk my dogs in my PJ’s but now I have to make sure I look half decent or else I get trashed. Or like having cellulite on the back of your legs. I’m sorry, I’m a woman! I don’t know what you want me to tell you. I’m sorry it’s not going to go away. I can’t do anything about it. I apologize if my legs offended you.” You tell 'em, Hayden!

SEXY AT SPIKE

Hayden Panettiere seen on May 30 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. Rarely do I think Hayden Panettiere looks gorgeous, but she looked absolutely stunning over the weekend at Spike TV’s 2009 Guy’s Choice Awards in Los Angeles on May 30. Really, I’m blown away by the sun-kissed tan and loose blonde locks – who is this beautiful girl and what has she done with HP and her unflattering, too tight strapless dresses and flabby arms she usually bares at events like these? Arriving in a gorgeous glitzy Stella McCartney dress in an almost nude shade (get the glam sequined look with Gold Hawk’s Mini Sequin Dress in Pale Yellow or the Sequin Dress in Celedon Green) paired with tan zippered Christian Louboutin heels (check out Matiko’s sexy Ashley 2 Wedge in Nude), Hayden stuck to the barely-there color scheme with a luminescent Jimmy Choo cloud clutch (try Posse New York’s Catalina Bag in Tan Pearl) and radiant Cathy Waterman earrings (try Amy DiGregorio’s naturally decadent Orchard Park Earrings in 14K Gold Filled). I’m honestly shocked she looks so chic! What do you think of the Stella McCartney tunic? The night after the event, HP was back at the Gibson Amphitheatre to present an award at the MTV Movie Awards. Hayden took the stage to present the WTF? Award to Amy Poehler for the scene in Baby Mama when her character peed in the sink. I don’t know, maybe it’s because I was expecting Baby Mama to be a total doozy, but it turned out to be surprisingly hilarious with scenes like the above. Amy Poehler totally deserves the recognition! Did any of you watch the MTV Awards?

GETTING SLOSHED AT SEA

Hayden Panettiere seen on May 18 2009 in Cannes, France. After spending a few days working on her tan while cruising the Mediterranean, Hayden Panettiere was spotted having a fabulous time at a celeb filled yacht party on May 18. HP is in town for the 2009 Cannes Film Festival, and spent a few days boating with rumored new beau Steve Jones while flaunting her toned bikini bod before heading out in this sexy little number. HP started with a loose white blazer (a spring essential!) over a tucked in cami (try something a little dressier like Gold Hawk’s Tribal Queen Top in White Essence) and a dazzling sequined mini skirt (for the everyday, opt for James Jeans’ Mitch Mini Jean Skirt in Beijing Silver). Adding a flirty white flower clip behind her hair, Hayden chose her accessories carefully, wearing simple pendant earrings (try Kuoting’s Swag Pendant Earrings in Gold) with a silver python clutch (try the unique shade of Julie K’s Cosmo Bag in Natural Exotic as an alternate). What do you think of the ‘fit? Love the white blazer, especially against her super tan skin, but I think I would have gone for something different in the footwear area. Not that you can ever go wrong with nude peeptoe Loubs, but it wouldn’t have hurt her to be a little daring. Thoughts? As HP exited the ship, it looks like she might not have her sea legs yet. Hayden had to be escorted out of the party, but she wasn’t the only famous face photographed having trouble keeping her balance: Twilight star Robert Pattinson also needed a helping hand getting off the ship. Other young celeb highlights included Diane Kruger, Orlando Bloom, Miranda Kerr and Doutzen Kroes. Sounds like the quite the shindig!

NICE NICE BABY

Hayden Panettiere seen on May 15 2009 in Nice, France. Looking very polished while making her way to France for the 2009 Cannes Film Festival, Hayden Panettiere landed at the Nice Airport on May 15 looking trés chic. Arriving in a belted navy trench (similar to Raw 7’s Cashmere Trenchcoat in Navy), smoky gray skinnies (try Hudson’s uber comfy Carly Skinny Jean in Wharf) and nude ballet flats, HP opted for noir oversized sunnies a la Jackie O and a charcoal tote over one arm (opt for Julie K’s Rianne Bowler Bag in Charcoal Glaze), accenting her décolleté with a dainty necklace (try something personalized like Maya Brenner’s State Pendant Necklace in Sterling Silver in your home state). What do you think of Hayden’s travel clothes? I must say she looks more grown-up than usual, but I’m not sure the posh look is the best she can do. After arriving safely in Cannes, Hayden was spotted on Sunday afternoon frolicking in the Mediterranean sun on Elton John’s partner David Furnish’s yacht. Joining Ryan Phillippe and a couple of sexy ladies on the boating excursion, HP was spotted cozying up with 32 year old British TV star Steve Jones while soaking up the sun on deck. It looks like HP has moved on from one 30+ beau to the next, after being spotted leaving Nobu with Mr. Jones in London earlier this month, exiting in a car together after the night out. Hayden hasn’t confirmed her new relationship but the photos pretty much spell it out. Why else would HP want to spend a day on a boat with a bunch of actors at least ten years her senior? Especially the following day when she sported a straw cowboy hat with her orange zebra striped bikini – someone’s trying a little hard to be sexy! Do you think 19 is too young to be dating such an older man?

HAYDEN TALKS SEX WITH BRISTOL PALIN

Hayden Panettiere seen on May 04 2009 in Hollywood, CA. Looking like your everyday California girl, Hayden Panettiere grabbed a few rolls of sushi at Katsuya in Hollywood on May 4 with her Heroes onscreen father, Adrian Pasdar. Before you begin to speculate that Hayden is getting over Milo with yet another older male on the set, keep in mind that the Heroes cast is supposed to be especially tight-knit behind the scenes. At least I hope so – Hayden is smart enough not to date another co-star, right? Looking like a Hollister Co. posterchild, HP wore low rise khaki pants (get even comfier for summer in Lotta Stensson’s Linen Palazzo Pant in Black) with Rainbow flip-flops on her lunch date, layering a blinding yellow cardigan (standout in bright picks like Autumn Cashmere’s V Neck Cardigan in Ultramarine or Qi’s Rouched Kimono Cardigan in Pink Melon) over a neutral cami. What do you think of the super sunny yellow color? Personally I think it makes her look uber tan, but do you think the highlighter yellow shade is too much for her? Finishing off the California casual ‘fit with black Raybans and a charcoal tote over her shoulder (check out the lightened shade of Antoinette Lee’s Besa Bag in Dove Grey), Hayden and Adrian reportedly stayed in the restaurant for over two hours. Wonder what they were up to in the there? It seems like HP has been gabbing a lot lately, and not just over lunch. Hayden made an appearance at the Candie’s Foundation town hall meeting in NYC on May 6, joining the panel with teen mom Bristol Palin and Tampa Bay Devil Rays’ Matt Garza to talk frankly about teen pregnancy. At 19, Hayden is definitely popular among fans her own age, but what do you think of what she said at the event: “It’s a topic that’s not talked about enough. This is just a human thing. It’s natural, it’s what everyone does, but most people don’t realize how serious things are until it directly impacts them and their lives or the lives of the people around them, and I think this is one of those things where as a young female you go, ‘Oh, it’ll never happen to me, oh, it happens to people, but it’ll never happen to me,’ and then it does happen.” Hmm, I wonder if Hayden is referencing her rumored pregnancy scare with Milo?

HP'S NEW PHONE

Hayden Panettiere seen on Apr 15 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. Making a classy appearance at the A|X Watches launch party in Los Angeles on April 15, Hayden Panettiere arrived in style, stepping out of her ride in a beige Burberry trench coat (check out Suzabelle's Nicolet Trench Coat in Classic Taupe) and sexy nude Christian Louboutin heels. Hayden has a thing for wearing Burberry coats over her dresses, but I have to admit the tailored style makes her look sophisticated. What do you think of the conservative style? Once inside the event, HP reveal a flirty one shoulder frock with a ruffled neckline (check out CoutureCandy's similarly vibrant verde options line Karina Grimaldi's Zuni Silk Mini Dress in Kelly Green or Iodice's Isadora Dress in Green). What do you think of the a-line style on Hayden's figure? In case you haven't gotten enough of Hayden on Heroes, you'll see her pretty face all over LG's new ad campaign for the uber cool Xenon phone. HP will be appearing in TV, print and online ads for the phone, seen posing here in a bikini with the phone. Definitely appealing to the younger crowd! Are any of you looking for a cool new phone?

SPRING FEVER

Hayden Panettiere seen on Mar 23 2009 in Van Nuys, CA. Off to an early start, Hayden Panettiere was spotted getting dropped off at a production studio in Van Nuys bright and early on March 23. Chatting on her phone before heading inside, HP took advantage of the sunny LA weather and started her day in destroyed micro mini shorts by 7 For All Mankind (fans of 7, check out Jackie Short in LA Dark or James Jeans’ Ian Micro Shorts in Gangsta) paired with a bright pink top (try Walter’s colorful Neon Watercolor Print Blouse in Pink Multi or Woo’s casual Flutter Henley Top in Pink Ruby). Love the bright colors for spring, but do you think the short-shorts are a little daring? Work it girl! In case you missed it, Hayden Panettiere recently broke up with her beau of over one year, Milo Ventimiglia, and was supposedly spotted making out with singer Jesse McCartney at Bardot in Hollywood shortly after. No word from HP on whether or not she was there, but Jesse recently dished on their (lack of) a relationship: “I actually know Hayden. I've known her for years – since she was nine years old. We had the same [talent] agent growing up, so she's been a friend for years. But there's nothing going on there really.” We really believe you!

IF LOOKS COULD KILL

Hayden Panettiere seen on Mar 10 2009 in Los Angeles, CA. Don’t mess with Hayden Panettiere! The Heroes hottie gave the paps the stare down while heading back to her car after a day on the set in LA on March 10, even pulling down her Ray Bans to make sure they got the hint. Why the sour face, HP? In contrast to her facial expression, I adore Hayden’s sunny yellow cardigan (light up for spring in Autumn Cashmere’s Short Sleeve V Neck Cardigan with Pockets in Eggshell or the Cable Grandfather Sweater in Citrine) over a casual tank (like PGD Style’s Babydoll Tank in White), faded grey tinted jeans (try Pierce Jeans Miami Tyler Straight Leg in Dolphin Grey) with comfy Ugg boots. Love the shiny black tote she’s carrying (check out CC Skye’s Lucy Bag in Black, which also comes in a rainbow of colors). What do you think of her ‘fit? Things have been a little rocky between HP and the press lately, especially after the Hawaii incident, so Hayden took the time to clear things up with OK! this week: “I have tremendous respect for the media and reporters particularly the press who treat the people they are interviewing with dignity. I am appreciative that the press has supported me, my career, and especially the causes I feel passionately about. While in Hawaii, one reporter grabbed me suddenly from behind and frightened me. It happens. Typically, the press has treated me with great respect.” How very mature of Hayden to put her drama queen episode to bed, but do you think she is sincere? HP also cleared up rumors that she is trying to get her ex, Milo Ventimiglia, kicked off their show, staying point blank that they are friends and continue to enjoy to work together. Somehow I doubt that one, given the look on her face!

HAYDEN GETS LEI'D

Hayden Panettiere seen on Mar 07 2009 in Waikiki, HI. Hayden Panettiere took some time off filming Heroes and headed to Hawaii on May 7. HP arrived at the grand re-opening event of the Royal Hawaiian Hotel in yet another questionably short, sleeveless mini dress paired with demure black patent pumps and a shiny black clutch (add gold accents to basic black with Antoinette Lee’s Suede Vita Clutch in Black). The cut of this LBD is much more flattering than her recent options (check out CoutureCandy’s selections like Nabe’s Stitch Strap Dress in Black or Ingwa Melero’s Angelina Mini Dress in Black). Loving the flashy gold neckline! Don’t you think the gathered panel at the front makes her look way slimmer than normal? She seems to be having a great time at the Hawaiian bash hanging out with celebs from Heather Graham, Justin Long and “Days of Our Lives” guy pal (or rebound?) Darin Brooks, but HP reportedly got in a little scuffle with the press at the event. According to Us Weekly, Hayden was feeling a little flustered by the photog presence and ordered everyone to back off as she made her entrance. When a female TV reporter tapped her on the shoulder and asked for an interview, HP lost it, screeching “Don’t you ever touch me!” at the poor woman before turning to the rest of the press and snarling, “Oh, am I supposed to do interviews? You all make my life miserable.” Yowza! Tell us how you really feel, Hayden! Guess you can’t blame her, since she did just break-up with her bf of more than a year, but rumor has it she’s turned a bit nasty on the set. HP is throwing a fit and trying to get her co-star/ex Milo Ventimiglia kicked off the show: "She refuses to be on the set at the same time as him. She is making it difficult for everyone involved." Sounds like it’s time for this cheerleader to grow up!

NEWLY SINGLE & READY TO MINGLE

Hayden Panettiere seen on Feb 19 2009 in Hollywood, CA. She might be underage, but that doesn’t seem to stop Hayden Panettiere from hitting up trendy Hollywood hotspots on regular basis these days. HP was spotted heading into Guy’s Night Club in Hollywood on February 19, clad in a very provocative little mini dress that somewhat resembles a draped towel. Really, is this what qualifies as a dress these days? I like the shape of the strapless frock, but it needs to be longer, and a different shade besides white wouldn’t hurt either. To create your own sexy look and still keep it classy, try CoutureCandy’s options like Cleo Brand’s Short Wrap Dress in Navy or the Iris Dress in Tan. To complete her ‘fit, HP wore simple dangle earrings (like Michele Michele’s affordable Citrine Drop Earrings in Silver), sexy peep-toe stilettos, and carried a quilted champagne colored clutch (check out Posse New York’s shimmery Catalina Bag in Tan Pearl). Hayden was heading to Guy’s for a private party, which explains the Carnival mask she’s toting, but I wish she would explain why she chose such a revealing frock. It looks especially racy on her stocky body type, but maybe that’s the vibe she’s trying to put out there. A few weeks ago, rumors surfaced that HP and long time beau Milo Ventimiglia might be on the rocks after she was spotted hanging on the arm of singer Jesse McCartney at Crown Bar in LA. US Weekly officially broke the news last week, citing a source who claimed the couple split due to lifestyle differences. No big surprise, considering the couple has more than a ten year age difference, but The Chicago Sun Times is telling a very different story. Their source alleges: “The split between Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia was caused by a pregnancy scare. The test proved negative but apparently caused friction that sparked the breakup.” So that’s the real story! Supposedly, there are no hard feelings and the two Heroes stars haven’t caused any drama on-set, but I wonder how long that will last with Hayden hitting up the clubs in ‘fits like this one. Personally, I think Milo was definitely the better looking half of the couple – good luck trying to replace him, HP!

FEELING FLAP-TASTIC

Hayden Panettiere seen on Feb 11 2009 in New York, NY. Getting her sexy on in NYC for Victoria’s Secret’s “What is Sexy?” bash at the The Bowery Hotel on February 11, Hayden Panettiere donned this saucy little number and had a fantastic time at the Valentine’s Day celebration hosted by Adriana Lima and Doutzen Kroes. I just can’t help but love this look from head to toe – it’s so different from HP’s typical minis! Starting with a fringed flapper dress (check out Black Halo’s collection of vintage-meets-mod dresses like the Strapless Box Pleated Dress in Black), HP rocked the 20’s vibe with her satin lapelled blazer (try William Rast’s classic Blazer in Black) and dramatic curled ‘do. Adding classic black slingbacks, a sleek black clutch (try Carla Mancini’s dainty Small Clutch in Black) and chic diamond stud earrings, I think HP nailed this look. Do you think there is anything she should have done differently – red lipstick, perhaps? Despite her classy look here, it seems 19 yr old Hayden just can’t seem to keep herself out of trouble. The underage actress was spotted at Crown Bar in LA last week, getting just a little too cozy with crooner Jesse McCartney. Fellow partiers said they were “all over each other,” with HP sitting in Jesse’s lap while he nibbled her neck. They were spotted making out outside when a fan approached Hayden and asked for her autograph, which she obliged, so there’s no way this is a case of mistaken identity! HP and her beau Milo Ventimiglia do keep their relationship very private, so it’s possible they split after that romantic holiday vacation together in Bora Bora. Either way, naughty naughty HP!

SEQUINED SWEETHEART

Hayden Panettiere seen on Jan 18 2009 in Washington, DC. Stepping out in yet another sizzling mini, Hayden Panettiere paid no attention to the frigid temps and attended the Washington, DC “Declare Yourself” celebration gala on January 18. HP must have forgotten how lucky she is to be living in LA when she packed this little number and headed cross-country! Even though her look is repetitive, I can’t help but love the intricate sequined pattern of this sassy little mini (emulate the flashy look for yourself with Smitten’s Capsleeve Sequins Dress in Black or LaROK’s Serengeti Tunic in Black Zebra), and the scoop back is very sexy on her petite little body! A pose looking over her shoulder would’ve done this mini justice – where’s her stylist giving her directions when she needs them? Wearing her tried-and-true YSL pumps (yawn – although I do love them!), Hayden carried a slender metallic clutch (take it to the next level with Antoinette Lee’s seductive Lua Snake Clutch in Gold) and had classic diamond studs gleaming from her ears. Love the hair too – the subtle volume at the back and loose layers around her face are perfect for this event. Overall, this is a very simple look but I’m still wowed by the dazzling dress – thoughts? At the event, Hayden posed with Jessica Alba and dished some of her personal views to the press, including a few tidbits of advice for the Obama girls, Sasha and Malia. Speaking from seemingly personal experience, HP said, "It takes a lot to keep their head on their shoulders, but I think they come from a good family and I think when you surround yourself with good people it tends to keep you on the ground." Is Hayden shedding light on the reason she hasn’t fallen victim to the temptations of Hollywood, since she's pretty much grown up in the spotlight after making her first sitcom appearance on "Aliens in the Family" in 1996 at the tender age of 9? Maybe it’s her 31 yr old boyfriend, Milo Ventimiglia, who has been keeping her out of trouble since they started dating seriously about a year ago. Whatever the reason, keep surrounding yourself with good people, HP!

BUSTED FOR BEING UNDERAGE!

Hayden Panettiere seen on Jan 17 2009 in Washington, DC. Looking very elegant in a plain yet tasteful black strapless dress by Akika Ogawa, Hayden Panettiere made the trip from Hollywood to Washington, DC for the Green Inaugural Ball on January 17. I love the plunging strapless neckline but unfortunately, I’m not sure it works for HP’s shorter frame – thoughts? If you’re in need of a new LBD, check out CoutureCandy’s options like Ella Moss’ casual Charleston Tube Top Dress in Black, Tricia Fix’s sexy Siva Mini Cocktail Dress in Radiant and Ingwa Melero’s seductive Charmeuse Sofia Dress in Black. Wearing gleaming YSL pumps, Hayden carried a classic Burberry coat (stay warm in Suzabelle’s Umbria Trench in Black) and wore dazzling H. Stern diamond studs (pair Michele Michel’s Onyx Disco Ball Earrings in Silver with your own LBD). Though she’s off to a good start saving the whales in 2009, Hayden ran into a bit of legal trouble near the end of 2008. The nineteen year old snuck into a club near her hometown of Palisades, NY just before Christmas and was busted by a security guard for being underage. HP claimed someone told her she could go into the NV Lounge through a side door, but when she got busted inside the bouncer didn’t recognize her (hah!) and confiscated her ID. I’m sure that never happened to Lindsay Lohan or Paris Hilton before they turned 21! However, things took an interesting twist when Hayden burst into tears and made a ballsy move to get her ID back. She called 911 on her cell (tapes have been released!) and told the dispatcher she needed her ID to fly home to Los Angeles a few days later. Suffern, NY Detective Craig Long told the press, "When my officers arrived on the scene we questioned Panettiere. I asked her if she tried to buy alcohol and she denied it. Panettiere told me that someone opened the side door of the nightclub so she could go inside and say hello to friends, not buy drinks." Her story seems legit to me – who calls the cops on themselves without good reason? What do you readers think?

HAYDEN DREAMS BIG

Hayden Panettiere seen on Jan 13 2009 in Hollywood, CA. As one of Hollywood’s more youthful celebs, Hayden Panettiere took advantage of her newly acquired voting rights and spread the word to other youngsters before and after the election. Getting prepped for the imminent inauguration, HP took part in Ashton Kutcher’s inaugural video montage, and was one of a slew of celebs coming and going from Dream Bigger Studios in Hollywood on January 13. Although Ashton is quite the goofster, I couldn’t help feeling a little inspired by his message, as I’m sure Hayden was: "There's an assumption that [Obama] is going to take on his new job full-time and somehow wave a magic wand of change, and I don't believe that to be true. I think that we have to be the leaders, and that's not as celebrities -- I think that we as citizens have to be leaders of the movement that we want to create." Emerging from the studio in a no fuss ‘fit while getting her Redbull fix, Hayden got her look with a classic black bomber jacket (check out Amberlynn’s Zipper Bomber Jacket in Black) over a comfy v-neck tee (like PGD Style’s Morgan V Neck Tee in Clay) with ash colored skinnies (try Denim of Virtue’s Patience 5 Pocket Tapered Jean in Grey). Giving the ‘fit a little edge with black motorcycle boots and a zippered black patent tote (indulge in Julie K’s Debby Tote with Zipper Pockets in Black Patent), HP sported a simple pair of diamond studs and wore a flashy silver ring on her middle finger (check out Erica Anenberg’s edgy Double Finger Ring in Sterling Silver). Wonder if it was a Christmas gift from beau Milo Ventimiglia? Despite rumors the heroic couple is on the rocks (much like the ratings for their tv show!), the HaLo duo took a romantic post-holiday vacay together in Bora Bora, indulging in a few days of fun in the sun. Wonder how Papa Panettiere feels about his teenage daughter’s weekend endeavor?

VIVERE LA VITA DOLCE

Hayden Panettiere seen on Jan 11 2009 in Beverly Hills, CA. Despite her youth, Hayden Panettiere looking surprisingly elegant at the 2009 Golden Globe Awards held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills on January 11. Selecting a lavish Gianfranco Ferre strapless gown, HP looked gorgeous in the rich eggplant shade with her favorite YSL heels peeking out underneath (if you love the purple hue, try Ingwa Melero’s Elena Charmeuse Maxi Dress in Aubergine or Walter’s Duchess Satin One Sleeve Dress in Purple). I must say I absolutely love this dress on her, from the knotted sash under the bust to the intricately beaded bodice and flashy faceted gems along the neckline. The tight strapless style would only work on a smaller bust like Hayden’s, and the hint of shimmer along her décolleté makes the dress pop. Loving the tapered back as well, and it’s fitting that Hayden’s “Vivere” tattoo is peeking out – she is definitely living the sweet life in this ‘fit! Complementing her gown with decadent jewels by Fred Leighton, Hayden’s gorgeous rose diamond briolette earrings sparkled along with her 4.0 carat platinum diamond ring (add sparkle to your ‘fit without breaking the bank with options like Castaway’s demure Amethyst Drop Earrings in Amethyst or Kuo Ting’s colorful Chrysophase Amethyst Earrings in Gold). Before I continue, how many of you were wearing 4 carat diamonds before you could drink legally? It’s just not fair! Hayden completed her look with simple manicured nails and a resin barrel Ferragamo clutch in a complementary shade, choosing an elegant curled ‘do draping over one shoulder and almost natural makeup. I love that she played up the dramatic eyes and left her lips and cheeks almost bare, and kudos to her makeup artist, Amy Oresman, for her nearly flawless foundation. HP generally looks a little too bronzed and cakey, and there is nothing bad I can say about her look here. Surprisingly, most of the cosmetics used were from the Neutrogena line that Hayden is a spokeswoman for – are any of you fans? I feel compelled to try the Natural Radiance Bronzer now that I see what a subtle glow it gives HP! While Hayden did not take home any awards for the evening, she was privileged to present the award for “Best TV Drama Actor” with High School Musical hottie Zac Efron. It’s not the same as taking a Globe home yourself, but taking the stage with one of young Hollywood’s sexiest stars is a nice trade-off, right?

HO-HO-HAYDEN

Hayden Panettiere seen on Dec 13 2008 in San Gabriel, CA. It’s that time of year when celebrities get called on to fulfill their endorsement obligations, and that’s just what Hayden Panettiere was up to when she appeared at Kohl’s Arcadia store in San Gabriel, CA on Dec 13. HP posed with Mr. and Mrs. Claus in front of a Candie’s backdrop, clearly enjoying herself as she promoted the brand – and enjoying the chance to share her Christmas list with Santa! Besides lending her megawatt smile, HP also helped to make some Christmas dreams come true, taking 5 lucky girls from the LA Children’s Hospital on a Kohl’s shopping spree. For her fun filled day, Hayden dressed in simple black skinny pants (like Hudson’s Alex 5 Pocket Skinny Jean in Black), shiny black patent peep-toes, a comfy striped scoop neck sweater (I love Autumn Cashmere’s casual Puff Sleeve Drawstring Top in Black and White) and a pair of enameled black hoops (just like Rachel Leigh’s Enamel Hoop Earrings in Jet). I like it, except for the slightly cakey make-up: Santa doesn’t mind if you go au-naturale once in awhile, HP! Things are looking up for the Heroes star, and Claire, the infamous hero cheerleader, is gracing the cover of TV Guide’s Sci-Fi issue this week. In the accompanying article, the show’s creator Tim Kring spills some secrets about tonight’s episode, including that one of Claire’s parents will die! The mid-season finale of Heroes airs tonight on NBC, concluding the “Villians” chapter. Fans will have to wait until Feb 2 to catch the rest of the season, so if you can’t get enough Heroes action be sure to set your TiVo tonight!

DO YOU HAVE YOUR HAYDEN?

Hayden Panettiere seen on Nov 22 2008 in Las Vegas, NV. Showing off her new handbag line and brand new platinum extensions, Hayden Panettiere jetted off to Las Vegas on Nov 22 to pose for the press at the Dooney & Bourke store inside the Venetian Hotel. Wearing a sexy cerulean mini dress with playful balloon sleeves (if you love the hue, try Karina Grimaldi’s Zuna Silk Mini Dress in Royal Blue or Smitten’s A-line Turtleneck Dress in Blueberry), HP certainly looked like a grown-up, even if the only thing she can do legally in Sin City is shop… and I’m sure she headed right over to the Forum shops as soon as her photo shoot ceased to get her mind off all the boozing and gambling she can’t participate in! Adding a striking pair of sky-high patent YSLs, her favorite swirl cuff (just like Michele Michel’s Swirl Bracelet in Silver), and a dainty knot bracelet (try Rachel Leigh’s Capsule Bangle in Gold), the new look and new ‘do are definitely refreshing. Though most celebs opt to simply put their name on a product, Hayden was hands-on involved in the production of her handbag line, appropriately named the Hayden clutch. Though she played a role in everything from the leather selection to the colors available, HP decided to add her personal touch with the 24k gold lion’s head closure – signifying both her Leo astrology and the characteristic vanity that goes hand-in-hand with the sign, of course. Another positive attribute: these cute little bags retail at just under $300 a pop, making them much more affordable than your average celebrity offshoot. Will you be picking one up while making your holiday shopping rounds?

HAYDEN GOING HIPPIE

Hayden Panettiere seen on Nov 10 2008 in West Hollywood, CA. After working all Sunday shooting scenes for “Heroes,” the show’s infamous cheerleader Hayden Panettiere rewarded herself for her hard work with a little retail therapy in West Hollywood on Nov 10. Giving off a casual Bohemian vibe, HP browsed an interior décor store to splurge on some digs for her newly acquired Hollywood Hills mansion in an embroidered peasant blouse (try Cake Couture’s sophisticated Tolume Cap Sleeve Blouse in White) paired with faded skinny jeans (similar to 7 For All Mankind’s Roxanne Skinny Jean in Chile), foxy aviators, a cinnamon colored tote (check out Posse New York’s fabulous Vanessa Tote in Plum), and her fav Rainbow flip-flops – standard for a long shopping trip! This week one of the new “Heroes: Villians” episodes with HP and guest star Kristen Bell aired – did any of you catch Hayden in action? As the action heats up on “Heroes” and the critics continue to slam the dark direction the show is taking, HP seems unfazed in her retail quest to revamp her abode and wardrobe. In addition, HP has also been heavily promoting her role as an anti-whaling activist, speaking at a rally in Washington DC to save the whales and recording a YouTube video asking fans to sign a petition and add a link to the Whaleman Foundation to their MySpace or Facebook profiles. Spreading the message from the lawmakers to the high tech youth of America seems like a feasible way to accomplish her goals – much better than getting herself arrested while protesting whaling in Japan last year!

24K HERO

Hayden Panettiere seen on Nov 01 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Getting all glitzed and glammed up for the Hollywood Legacy Awards on Nov 1 at the Esquire House in LA, Hayden Panettiere looked absolutely radiant as she shimmied down the red carpet in this racy little number. Jumping on the metallic foil dress trend picked up by Lo Bosworth and Kate Hudson, Hayden rocked an itty bitty strapless mini with a skinny belt cinching the middle (try Betsey Johnson’s Convertible Ruffle Dress in Gold for a similar shimmering effect) with glossy croc peeptoes and dramatic red lips – which she’s been sporting quite frequently. How do you feel about the crimson color with her delicate features – love it or lose it? Completing her look with classy gold hoops (like Robyn Rhodes’ Mattie Double Hoop Earrings in Mixed Metal), a slender gold ring on her middle finger (try Rachel Leigh’s playful Sweet Tooth Ring in Gold) and a sassy gold clutch (add a little spice to your ‘fit with Antoinette Lee’s Suede Vita Clutch in White), the only thing missing from her very sexy ensemble was her usual cherub cheeked smile – why the somber face, HP? Even if she wasn’t happy on the way in, Hayden had something to smile about later in the evening: Heroes picked up a Hollywood Legacy Award, amidst slumping ratings in the third season and two executive producers getting axed over the weekend. HP didn’t stick around to celebrate with the cast after the event, but her on-screen dad Jack Coleman spoke up in her defense about the intense scrutiny she’s endured since the show became a hit: "It’s not a secret. The way the publicity game is set up, it’s completely obsessed with young women and the idea is to basically to destroy them, it’s predatory and it certainly could make me react in a very bad way if I had to put up with what she has to put up with." Thanks, Dad! Have any of you been tuning in to the show?

MAKING MOM CRY

Hayden Panettiere seen on Oct 29 2008 in Sherman Oaks, CA. A little retail therapy is always a fun indulgence, especially when you leave the Rumor boutique in Sherman Oaks with two stuffed shopping bags like Hayden Panettiere on Oct 29. Combining her shopping spree with family time (not to mention a caffeine jolt), HP browsed the racks with her mom and little brother before picking out an assortment of scarves and hats to add some flair to her fall wardrobe… that is, if fall ever begins in LA! Wearing a flattering turquoise tank (check out the similar shape of Woo’s Anna Tunic in Wasabi Green) with faded skinny jeans (like Desert Blue’s Water Element Jean in Tornado Dark Indigo) and her favorite Rainbow flip-flips, Hayden rocked a pair of gold aviators while carrying a chic black purse (try Jenny Yuen’s compact Sherlock Satchel in Black). For someone who cares so much about saving the whales, the leather bag and shoes definitely undermine her animal-loving message! Besides the newly purchased digs, HP showed off another new acquisition on her shopping venture: a vertical tat on her back beginning with “Vivere,” with the second word disappearing under her shirt. Embracing her heritage, Hayden went with the Italian spelling of “to live,” making me wonder just what the rest of it might say! Though most would say the font and meaning behind the tat is pretty classy, HP’s mama would definitely disagree. After discovering Hayden’s first tattoo, a Leo sign on her ankle, her mom was reduced to tears at seeing her daughter’s permanent artwork etched on her skin. Makes you wonder, was she trying to pick a fight by adding another emblem?

DECLARING HERSELF

Hayden Panettiere seen on Sep 24 2008 in Hollywood, CA. She may be relatively new to the Hollywood scene, but youngster Hayden Panettiere sure knows how to get glammed up for a soiree! The Heroes cheerleader was spotted at Declare Yourself’s Last Call Party on Sept 24, looking pretty damn sexy in an all black ensemble. Wearing an embellished cami with a sequined wing-sleeved top over it (check out the similar neckline of Black Halo’s Boat Neck Jersey Dress in Black), HP rocked it in her sultry black skinnies (see Denim of Virtue’s Slim Peeptoe Jean in Black) and strappy black heels. Adding elegant gold hoop earrings (try Lana’s Solar Earrings in Gold) and a gold python clutch (check out Marnie Rock’s Large Gold Python Clutch in Gold), HP kept it classy with her French manicured digits and kohl rimmed eyes, looking all around fabulous in my opinion! Because this is the first time she gets to cast a ballot in an election, Hayden is taking the race to the White House very seriously. Earlier this month she fueled the fire started by Paris Hilton’s fake presidential bid and recorded a Funny or Die video bashing McCain, dropping enough f-bombs to make even me blush! The short vid starts off with Hayden saying, "I know I'm hot enough to hold your attention for at least 30 seconds," escalates to her promoting cigarette smoking, not wearing your seatbelt, and all the reasons you should vote for McCain, ending her rant with "Nobody f***’s with John McCain!" Yikes! Definitely captured my attention, but I’m left feeling a little disturbed! Is anyone else ready for this election – and the negativity surrounding it – to be over with?

TWO TIME OFFENDER

Hayden Panettiere seen on Sep 16 2008 in West Hollywood, CA. What is it about this girl and parking tickets? Hayden Panettiere let her meter run out while she was getting her hair colored in West Hollywood on Sept 16, becoming yet another unfortunate victim of LA’s Parking Enforcement. Those ticketers are merciless! Fortunately for HP, this incident took an interesting twist. Resident paps lingering outside the salon offered to add quarters to the meter for her when they saw the parking dude arrive, but to no avail. When HP returned to her Porsche Cayenne with yet another present waiting for her on the windshield, one of the paps who witnessed was so kind as to offer to pay the ticket for her. Where was this guy the last time I got a parking ticket in LA?? It’s not like Heroes isn’t bringing in enough cash for Hayden to pay off a $45 ticket! The nice guy made a little YouTube vid about the ordeal, showing himself writing the check and mailing it for her. Apparently he exercised the same generosity with Seinfeld awhile back. An unselfish, generous paparazzi? What is the world coming to! Despite earning her second ticket this summer, HP emerged from her stylist with rejuvenated blonde locks and a new set of razor sharp bangs, looking as fresh as her yellow maxi dress with Grecian style ties on the front (if you love the hue, try Ella Moss’ Piper Dress in Daisy). Keeping her look simple for the salon, HP wore her fav swirl cuff on one wrist and a slender chain bracelet on the other (try Michele Michel’s Swirl Bracelet in Silver and Jennifer Zeuner’s Vermeil Peace Rope Bracelet in Vermeil), with a dainty charm necklace around her neck (try Maya Brenner’s elegant Birthstone Ring Charm in Gold). I love that no matter how pricey her accessories are, like the purple Balenciaga fringed bag she’s carrying here, HP always makes her ‘fits age appropriate by adding elements like her treasured Rainbow flipflops. You can’t beat comfort!

HP HEATS UP

Hayden Panettiere seen on Aug 27 2008 in Denver, CO. Looking divine in a red hot mini dress, Hayden Panettiere exercised her political prowess on August 27 by attending the Creative Coalition Gala in Denver, CO. The upcoming presidential election in November will be HP’s first chance to cast a ballot to pick the next pres, so I can see why she’s taking the Creative Coalition’s event so seriously! For her ‘fit, Hayden picked a red mini with gold details (check out the very similar design of Lotta Stensson’s Braided Sun Dress in Yellow, or nab the red hue with the Shirred Mini Tube Dress in Poppy) and stuck to the glitzy theme with her gold envelope clutch (like Carla Mancini’s flashy Small Python Clutch in Gold), sexy braided gold heels, classy diamond studs (try taking it up a notch with Rachel Leigh’s fun Triangle Stud Earrings in Topaz) with a simple charm necklace (like Maya Brenner’s The Charm-ing Necklace in Gold) and her fav swirl cuff bracelet (similar to Michele Michel’s Swirl Bracelet in Silver). Lately, HP’s been trying out a variety of new looks, from short-short mini dresses like the leopard one she donned a few weeks ago at the Trump bash to experimenting with bold red lipstick for her TRL appearance. Hayden describes her personal style, "I usually try to mix class and then really funk it out. It's rock meets class. I try — not always succeed, but I try." What do you think – does HP pull off the red hot look? In addition to her political activities, Hayden has been a busy bee promoting the new season of Heroes, appearing on MTV’s TRL and the Late Show with David Letterman this week. With the third season premiere coming up on September 22, HP and her co-star bf Milo Ventimiglia have a lot of work to do to get fans pumped up for the new season. If you recall the writer’s strike last year, Heroes was one of the shows that unfortunately ended abruptly in the middle of the season. It’s been a long wait to see how the show will continue, but the new Villians chapter should have everyone glued to the boob tube… if not just to see HP’s smiling face!

JUNGLE FEVER

Hayden Panettiere seen on Aug 23 2008 in Bel-Air, CA. America’s favorite cheerleading sweetheart, Hayden Panettiere, made waves on Sat night when she stepped out for Donald Trump’s exclusive A-list shindig in Bel-Air on August 23. The party was promoting the Donald’s newest Trump International Hotel & Tower venture in Dubai, not due to open its doors until 2011, when it will be the tallest structure in the city. Among the other celebs in attendance, HP outshone all of her competitors in a slinky leopard mini tube dress (if you like the look, try Lotta Stensson’s Shirred Mini Tube Dress in Black for a toned down version) with matching peep toe stilettos and coordinated gold bangles (try Jennifer Zeuner’s Set of 14 Bangles in Gold for a multi hued variety), gold dangly earrings (check out Kuo Ting’s Antique Pendant Earrings in Gold), and a vintage-esque gold box clutch (try Antoinette Lee’s sassy Suede Vita Clutch in Black). I’m not the biggest fan of over-the-top animal prints, so I’m sort of biased against this one, but what do you think – does Hayden pull it off? Fresh faced as usual, HP pulled back her new shorter ‘do in an elegantly simple up-do. I have a feeling she doesn’t like the new cropped coif because I don’t think she’s worn it down since dinner at Madeo the day of the cut! HP has been a busy bee filming the upcoming season of Heroes, but she’s taken time off to promote her favorite cause: saving the whales! Her latest venture, panettierecloset.com, is based on a very interesting concept. You can go on the site and buy Hayden’s rejected clothes (one season at a time) and the proceeds will be donated to help HP’s marine friends. Hayden says on the site, “It’s my dream to put an end to illegal whaling around the world, and I’m asking you to be MY hero and help spread the word. Such a cause can not continue to go unnoticed, so I’m pleading with you to help me, help the whales, the dolphins and seals. Cleaning out my closet is just the beginning; and putting my stuff up for sale is the first step in a crusade that will go a long way to helping these majestic mammals. The money we raise together will bring a larger-than-life awareness to everyone who believes saving the world means living in a humane world.” A very noble cause for someone as youthful as Hayden! How do you feel about the cause – would you shell out the dough to wear HP’s clothes AND save the whales at the same time?

HAYDEN NEEDS A HERO

Hayden Panettiere seen on Aug 10 2008 in Hollywood, CA. Wow, talk about a bad day. Despite the events that followed, America’s favorite Heroes hottie, Hayden Panettiere, looked drop-dead gorgeous at the Whaleman Foundation Benefit in Hollywood, CA on August 10. HP co-hosted the event (which ultimately had the theme of: save the whales!) at Eva Longoria’s Beso eatery, wearing a stunning strapless coral number (like Prairie New York’s Chic Strapless Dress in Chocolate or the Bow Dress in Tomato) with an iridescent envelope clutch (just like Posse New York’s Sama Clutch in White Pearl), shimmering drop earrings (check out Kuo Ting’s Frosted Teardrop Earrings in Sterling Silver), and a flashy silver band (try Christie Martin’s cool personalized Sterling Silver Band Ring). HP swept her newly shorn locks into a sophisticated updo, making her look years beyond her tender age of 18. No matter how stunning she looked, the night took a turn for the worse as soon as HP left the party with co-star/boytoy Milo Ventimiglia. First, Hayden’s Porsche Cayenne (driven by her bf) ran over a photog’s foot while leaving the restaurant. Hey, I’m sure the pap jumped in front of the car while trying to get one last shot of the couple, but it’s too bad HP couldn’t save the day with her healing powers. Then, to add to the stress that goes along with any auto blunder, things took a serious turn for the worse on the homefront. Cops were called to Mama and Papa Panettiere’s residence around 3am for a domestic disturbance. It’s unclear exactly what happened, but police leaks say HP’s dad hit her mom in the face after an argument involving Mom’s “disrespectful” behavior at the party, leaving a visible bruise that led to Dad’s arrest after the po-po showed up. I’m not sure what could be more disrespectful than hitting your wife in the face, but I hope Hayden is safe and sound recovering from the incident.

BAD TO THE BONE

Hayden Panettiere seen on Jul 30 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Heroes sweetheart Hayden Panettiere was out and about in Los Angeles on July 30, picking up furniture for her new digs after an eventful weekend at San Diego’s Comic-Con geek fest. Unfortunately she left her car parked a wee bit too long and became a victim of LA’s merciless parking enforcement… the look on her face says it all! HP wore a cute tie back mini dress while running her errands (check out Ecoganik’s Empire Waist Bubble Dress in White or Rails’ Nadea Dress in Blue for similar options) with a simple silver cuff (nearly identical to Michele Michel’s Swirl Bracelet in Silver) and ultra comfy Rainbow flip flops. The barely legal babe is still getting her new pad ready for her BFF from native New York to move in with her. Apparently choosing her best friend as a roomie over boytoy Milo Ventimiglia sparked some dissention in their budding romance. A friend dished, “Milo was secretly hoping Hayden would ask him to move in to the new pad. He is keen to take their relationship to the next level by moving in together but Hayden is not ready for that.” Not surprising, considering he is more than ten years her senior! However, HP smoothed things over with her boo by performing a special birthday striptease for him on the set of Heroes. Almost too juicy to be true, a source reported: "Hayden asked the wardrobe girls to make her a Velcro-lined version of the [cheerleader] outfit she wears on the show. As she sang 'Happy Birthday' to Milo in front of cast and crew during lunch she ripped off the costume to show off her sexy red lingerie in a bump-and-grind striptease. Milo's face went bright red." Umm, a cheerleader striptease? Either this is a nerd’s wet dream that somehow made in on the web, or HP has a naughty side we have yet to see!

THE CHEERLEADER GROWS UP

Hayden Panettiere seen on Jul 21 2008 in Beverly Hills, CA. Hayden Panettiere stepped out to eat at the popular Madeo restaurant in Beverly Hills on July 21, looking radiant as always while sporting new sleek, shorn locks. I have to wonder, does she ever look anything less than perfect? The pretty young thing had to ask the paps stationed outside where the entrance was, which would be laughable if she wasn’t so adorable! To nab Hayden’s fresh summery look, start with a comfortable off-shoulder top in a bright hue (try Rails’ Reyna Tee in Peach for a more casual look, or Kelly Cushing’s Tunic Mini Dress with Sash in Coral for a slightly dressier, long sleeved style) and pair with flattering ultra skinnies like Denim of Virtue’s Patience 5 Pocket Tapered Jean in Faded Grey. Keeping her look simple with minimal makeup and accessories, HP paired an opalescent envelope clutch (just like Posse New York’s Sama Clutch in White Pearl) with a classy gold swirl cuff (check out the similar design of Michele Michel’s Swirl Bracelet in Silver), sexy metallic peep-toe heels, and of course a wad of cash for the valet – hey, big spender! It’s been a busy summer for our favorite cheerleader from NBC’s Heroes, now in its third season. Between promoting her new single “Wake Up Call” from her debut album (set to release Aug 5) to hanging out with dreamy co-star/beau Milo Ventimiglia, Hayden found time to indulge in a little retail therapy, decorating her new home. The young starlet just moved down the street from her parent’s house into her own pad – a $4 million Hollywood Hills mansion, that is. Of life on her own, the 18 year old says, "I still want a mom and dad to take care of me and do my laundry, 'cause I can't do it. No, I'm kidding. I can do laundry!" Suuure, we believe you HP!

HAYDEN'S EXPERIMENTAL DAYS

Hayden Panettiere seen on Jun 02 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Hayden Panettiere had quite the busy LA day on June 2; first she filmed an episode of her show, "Heroes," then headed to Saks Fifth Avenue in Bev Hills for a little retail therapy, and then headed to LAX to catch a flight. Phew! Outfit wise, Hayden played it safe in a white cami (check out Whitley's Emily Cami in Cream) and dark blue skinnies (like Tag Jeans' Skinny 5 Pocket Jean in Medium Stone), accompanied by a whole armful of bags, including her SFA shopping bag, an oversized canvas tote and a blue leather purse (Dutchy Handbag's Lareg Button Satchel Bag in Slate is similar). The one choice that saved this outfit from total dullsville are Hayden's gladiator sandals, and even those have become pretty standard in Hollywood these days! While experimenting with various things is a standard part of the growing up process, Hayden has admitted in an interview that she experimented with the same-sex when it came to locking lips. She says, "It’s great to have boyfriends. Or girlfriends. There are occasions when you kiss your best friend growing up, having fun and goofing about. Like perfecting your technique. People are more interested in who celebrities are dating than the events going in the world. I’m not shallow. And I’m not sharing.” That's right, HP, you lock it up!

Family outing

Hayden Panettiere seen on Feb 14 2008 in West Hollywood, CA. Hayden Panettiere spent her Valentine's Day with her family on Thursday, February 14 in Los Angeles, totally looking like a flasher in her long trench coat. Hayden decided to stay low key on V-Day, having her brother be her her for the evening. Hayden kept it casual in a long khaki colored trench coat (check out Walter's Trench Coat in Bronze) paired with a pair of black pantent leather heels (like Matiko Footwear's Abba in Black). Hayden and her family made their way to the new Hollywood hip steakhouse STK. The steakhouse just opened in West Hollywood after having much success in New York City, so expect to see Hollywood's hippest dining at this brand new hot spot. Sources inside say that she sat right across from brother Jansen, while accompanied her dad Alan and her mom-ager Lesley. No word where Milo Ventimiglia was this evening. I'm sure him and Hayden had a romantic Valentine's lunch somewhere in Los Angeles. Now that the writer's strike is over, I'm sure we will be seeing a lot less of Hayden as she gears up to start filming the new season of "Heroes." No word on when they will begin filming again, but we will be sure to keep you updated as soon as we hear.
