If a judge can steal the limelight on American Idol, then Paula Abdul might have accomplished the feat with her hair bling. The gallery also shows other celebs who rock the hair brooch look.

Normally reserved for red carpets and weddings, Paula Abdul put a gigantic jeweled burst in her hair to complement some bitchin’ earrings. Showing more than just a little cleavage too, American Idol’s Paula Abdul made the younger Kara Dioguardi look pretty average. No doubt Paula was motivated to sell some hair jewelry via her affiliations with HSN.com, one of the bigger shopping channels.
