Ke$ha was the perfect person to ask to perform on New Year’s Eve because she already only wears sparkly things.

Punk goes to the prom.

This bodysuit was much-maligned, and unfortunately, only the beginning of J.Lo’s obsession with them.

This appears to be some cross between leather and patent leather, if such a thing exists.

Black, studded leather – or are those what we would call baubles?
