Happy Valentine's Day, y'all! Whether you're the type of person to go all out for February 14 or just wait patiently for the candy to go on sale tomorrow, we've got a VDay gift everyone will appreciate. The boys from Passion Pit dropped their new video for "Carried Away" this morning, co-starring Sophia Bush as half of a young couple dealing with the euphoric highs and depressing lows of a relationship. And —spoiler alert!— while Sophia and frontman Michael Angelakos's lovey dovey vibes might not last, at least she looks great throughout the whole thing...even when she's smearing lipstick on her face or wielding a scary knife. The manic pixie dream girl secret? According to stylist Leila Baboi, this result involves over TWENTY outfit changes, mostly from emerging designers.

It seems like forever ago when we first announced that Lana Del Rey was the new face of Jaguar cars (come to think of it, it kinda was...) But now, almost six months later, we've FINALLY got a first look at her new campaign! The Jaguar F-TYPE Convertible ad comes in the form of a super slick new music video for her forthcoming single "Burning Desire," penned and performed by Lana herself. The clip dropped this morning, and showcases LDR singing sultrily and giving off major glam retro vibes — what else is new?— dressed in a floor-length silk vintage gown by Ghost. The gorgeous outfit is pure Lana: retro with a body-hugging silhouette that fits her curves so perfectly, it's almost like she was POURED into the dress. It's no secret that our girl loooooves white, but it seems she's swapped her recent foray into the '80s for a tried and true classic Lana look.

Oh HEY, Miley Cyrus! We've been wondering where the pop star would touch down during Fashion Week ever since she first hinted on Twitter she'll be attending the shows. But despite our prediction that she'd cruise straight to London, turns out the singer made a pit stop in New York City! She sat front row at pal Rachel Zoe's show this morning alongside her mom Tish and Cosmopolitan editor-in-chief Joanna Coles — which actually makes TOTAL sense considering Miley is the mag's newest cover girl. Oh, and did we mention she looks killer? Because she does. Miley may have had some wardrobe issues pre-trip, but judging from her red hot Rachel Zoe jumpsuit, clearly she got 'em sorted out.
Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn will wear a "model cam" during Topshop's runway show.

London Fashion Week begins in two days, and Topshop is making sure everyone scores a front row seat and a backstage pass to its Sunday show...yep, even those of us who aren't lucky enough to be making the trek across the pond. The U.K. brand has just announced a new partnership with Google Plus, giving up close and personal access to the models and clothes, and....DUNDUNDUN, perhaps changing the face of fashion shows all together. It's a bold statement for sure, but when else will we be able to live vicariously through models like Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn, as well the buyers, designers and brains behind one of our favorite labels?! Perhaps taking cues from Diane von Furstenberg and her Google glasses last season, select girls will wear HD cameras on their clothes as they walk down the runway to give everyone at home the experience of being a model— virtually, anyway. Think of it as taking the whole "watching Fashion Week in your PJs" thing to the next level. Amazing, right?!

The road to Oscar weekend has been a long one— we've already made pit stops at The Screen Actors' Guild Awards, The Golden Globes, and others along the way— but there's still one more celebration that needs to happen before all the movie madness goes down on February 24. We're talking about the Costume Designers Guild Awards, where the creative geniuses behind the coolest clothes in film and TV get honored for their work. Obviously this is a HUGE DEAL, so to get psyched up for the event, we'll be chatting with nominees about the stories, inspiration, and challenges behind some of our absolute favorite outfits. Kicking off the series is Judianna Makovsky, who crafted all of the outfits in The Hunger Games, from Katniss' hunting look, to Effie Trinket's candy-colored frocks, to that iconic fire dress. Get the scoop below!

Fashion Week, we hope you're ready for Miley Cyrus, because she's coming your way! While we've been buried in show coverage, band interviews, and tracking each and every moment of New York Fashion Week for you guys, Miley slipped in a piece of news about her own FW plans. The singer tweeted yesterday: "Fashion week packing ahhhh!" along with the photo of her clothes strewn across her floor. First of all, it's comforting to see that even pop stars aren't immune to those "I have nothing to wear!" moments. But more importantly, WHICH Fashion Week is Miley attending?! Considering the New York arm of the four-city whirlwind winds up on Thursday, she'll have to get here—FAST— before the shows begin in London.
Looks from Karen Walker's Fall 2013 New York Fashion Week show.

A English punk soundtrack goes well with just about anything, but especially if you're lucky enough to be blasting it while rocking Karen Walker's boxy jackets, pleated skirts, and the rest of her Fall wares. The New Zealand designer's message came in loud and clear yesterday at her New York Fashion Week runway show, where she took cues from '70s punk rockers The Damned in her aptly titled "New Rose" collection (named after their 1976 single). Art school touches like dripping rose print motifs, highlighter yellow details and zig zag sweaters collided with collegiate staples such as pinafore dresses, slouchy socks and trench coats for an explosion of kooky cool that we want to inject into our closets immediately. Models worked messy ponytails and shaggy, mussed-up bobs as they strutted down the runway to Siouxsie Sioux and The Damned, upping the rebellious rock 'n roll ante in Walker's rad frames.
Taylor Swift for 'ELLE.'

Only about 12 hours after Taylor Swift nabbed a Grammy for her Hunger Games track "Safe and Sound" and got the internet talking about her opening performance of "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," we have even MORE news about the pop star for you: she's the new ELLE cover girl! Taylor fronts the magazine's March issue in a '60s-inspired dress by Louis Vuitton, looking the every bit the part of a mod style icon with blunt bangs, kohl-rimmed eyes and major lashes. Oh, and while it might SEEM like the frock is sheer underneath the yellow checks, upon further inspection it's evident that this cocktail dress is lined with a nude slip. We know Taylor's been branching off into deep-plunge neckline and cutout territory, but we don't think she would be scandalous enough to pull a Rihanna quiteeee yet. This retro cover look is one of many Tay rocks in the eclectic spread, which covers the style spectrum from punk (pink hair!) to bohemian to classically girly. See more after the jump!
Karlie Kloss hosted MTV's Grammy Red Carpet last night and walked in Carolina Herrera's runway show this morning.

We already know that Karlie Kloss is talented, incredibly hardworking, and makes a mean chocolate chip cookie, but last night we learned something new about our House of Style host: she's officially NOT human, you guys! Just mere hours after serving as the Style Correspondent on MTV's Grammy red carpet livestream in L.A., the model hopped on a cross-country redeye and went STRAIGHT from the airport to the Carolina Herrera runway show in New York this morning...which she opened, naturally. **It should be noted that we could barely make it to Times Square this morning, let alone strut down the runway at 10 a.m.** But Karlie being Karlie, she swapped out last night's Michael Kors dress and slipped into Carolina Herrera's black accented floor-length gown without even so much as a YAWN.
Rihanna at her Grammy Awards performances in L.A. on February 10.Photo: Getty Images
While it could be argued that Rihanna stayed on the safer side with that CBS nudity code in her red carpet custom Alaia dress, let's be real. There's NO denying the coverage— or lack thereof— when Riri took the stage. She first stepped out with Mikky Ekko to sing her single "Stay," dressed in a body-hugging slip dress also by Alaia. The pop star's been rocking the underwear-as-outerwear thing nonstop recently (coughTerryRichardsoncough), but her initial stage look was simple, chic, and no frills...much like the stripped-down performance itself. But don't worry, y'all! Obviously it was only a matter of time before Rihanna sent audience hearts racing (and people at home WILLING for a wardrobe malfunction) in her crop top and striped skirt combo during the Bob Marley tribute with Bruno Mars and Sting.
