In our weekly round-up of what we’re seeing sizzle (and fizzle) on the red carpet, we spotted chic onesies all over the place, a ton of strap-happy celebs in sandals — and a little too much ab action.

Up: Jumpsuits. Apparently normal pantsuits are just way too boring, because this trend is taking over Hollywood. Case in point: Jennifer Lopez nailing it in this black all-in-one getup with gold chain detailing around the collar. (If you want to try it, this one is on sale for $49 at Kohl’s!) The look manages to be classy but still packs an edgy punch which makes for the perfect trend formula. Plus, just this week Miley Cyrus, Jennifer Morrison and Maria Menounos proved onesies aren’t going anywhere. Our only question: What happens when you have to use the bathroom?

Up: Sexy two-strap sandals. Pedicure season is in full swing, and celebs have been letting their fresh paint jobs shine. The latest footwear craze – sandals with a strap around the front of the foot and one around the ankle like the pair Jamie Chung wears with her printed mini. And she’s not the only star to add some warm-weather spring to her step. Minka Kelly, Michelle Williams, and Victoria Justice prove these shoes are having a moment, convincing us to invest in a pair.

Down: Over-the-top ab baring. We are well aware of the adage, “If you got it, flaunt it,” but some looks should be saved for the beach…or the bedroom. We give Ali Larter major points in the gutsy category for stepping out in this revealing dress, but with all the slits (and that confusing neckline) we think stars should just stick to simpler cutouts like Anna Faris elegantly demonstrates.
