In the ‘80s, “rock star” was synonymous with kohl-smudged eyes, teased hair, and a slash of red lipstick. In 2010, it’s all about color, color, and more color! Think rainbow-hued hair, Crayola-drenched makeup and neon accessories. Whether you’re actually a rock star (like Nicki Minaj) or you love to look like one (hello, ‘Vampire Diaries’ star Katerina Graham), this playful, super-bright look is fun, fierce, and here to stay.

‘The Noisettes’ singer Shingai Shoniwa is the epitome of the new rock star! Here, she flaunts tangerine lipstick, golden-green eyeshadow and a pompadour afro. So unique.
