Rihanna is a style chameleon. She can go from wearing the snazziest, razziest performance outfit to sporting uptown turtleneck chic to dressing down in a Village People Chanel sea captain look all in the span of a week. What we love so much about Ri is that she doesn't stick to one particular look or theme; she can go from bananas-omg-what one moment to craymazing-where-can-I-get-this the next. And sometimes she puts both of those themes together at once, such as with this Pixelated Cleopatra Sweatshirt by Topshop Unique. Like we said: bananas, craymazing, and WANT.

Miley Cyrus Sky Ferreira Katy Perry Elton John Oscars Viewing Party

Whew, it was a loooong 2012 Oscar night. From a fash parade of Best Dressed lovelies to Angelina Jolie's leg workin' the red carpet (and Oscar stage) like a seasoned pro, it was an evening full of style sensations and straight-up style shenanigans. And it didn't stop with the actual awards show, either. As you know, there are many post-Oscar bashes to attend, and Elton John's annual dinner, in support of the Elton John AIDS Foundation, is always a celeb- and musician-friendly fave. This year's event drew everyone from Miley Cyrus and Sky Ferreira to Katy Perry and Nina Dobrev. Also? It was an evening awash in silver sparkle and matte black panache.

Our favorite time of year is here! We're talking about the 2012 Oscars, aka the Academy Awards, also known as the closest thing fashion stylists get to competing in the Olympics. Watching the nominees and Hollywood royalty waltz down the red carpet in all their fairy-tale princess glory is our sport of choice, and we've been glued to the pre-show proceedings ready to decree the fairest of them all. We were captivated by giant crimson bows, voluminous blood orange confections, lace trains, and a particular prince who broke the black tuxedo spell with some swoon-worthy velvet panache. It wasn't easy *wipes sodden brow* but here, without further ado, are our Best Dressed looks of the night.

EMMA STONE IN GIAMBATTISTA VALLI COUTURE

Dear Emma Stone, YOU WIN. In the category of Best Vivid Oscar Dress of Classic Feminine Delight, you get the imaginary MTV Style golden button statue. Not only was this crimson Giambattista Valli gown a triumphant choice due to the gargantuan halter neck bow, elegant silhouette, and undulating floor-grazing hem, we were particularly taken with the poise in which you wore it. Look at the relaxed arms anchored by that single diamond bracelet, the subtle makeup that highlights the skin yet doesn't detract from the gown, and the side-swept hair that is at once classic and crowning in a complementary strawberry hue. We're smitten, bowled over, and utterly transfixed by this ensemble. BRAVO to one of the most stunning gals of the night.

We haven't heard a peep out of Kanye West about the state of his foray into fashion following that epic Twitter rant back in early January, but we have heard that he plans to show again at Paris Fashion Week in the coming weeks. And though we haven't heard about the state of his signature KANYE WEST label, we do know that he seems to be as committed to fashion as ever as evidenced by his shirtless appearance in Vogue celebrating Givenchy Creative Director Riccardo Tisci, as well as his support for designer Mark Fast at London Fashion Week. But if there's any new news that trumpets Yeezy's commitment to the garment arts, it's the fact that he designed the shoes for up-and-coming Australian designer Dion Lee's debut show. Also? These shoes are RAD.

If there's any young star truly charming both Hollywood and the fashion world at the moment, it's Chloë Grace Moretz. Not only does she star in Tim Burton's vampire film, Dark Shadows, she's still riding the enormous Oscar-nominated tidal wave that is Hugo, in which she also stars. Throw in numerous red carpet style slayings, a penchant for Chanel, and newly tinted pink hair (which set the internet ablaze with coverage), and she's a match made in photo op heaven. Now there's a major fashion house in the mix too. Max Mara has just awarded Chloë the "2012 Women In Film Max Mara Face of the Future Award." Whoa, that's a mouthful. Also, whoa, what IS this?

Raf Simons Jil Sander

Whoa, gigantic fashion news! WWD is reporting that Raf Simons, creative director of minimalist fashion house Jil Sander, is leaving the company. What's the big deal, you ask? (Because fashion designers move around from time to time.) Well, this is particularly titillating for many reasons: A) because the rumor is that Simons is in talks to take over the vacant spot left by John Galliano over at Dior *gasp* and B) because the other rumor is that Jil Sander herself might be returning to her namesake label. Confused? Don't be. Quick rundown: Jil Sander—the actual woman who started her eponymous label known for minimalist chic 44 years ago—resigned in 2000, following a 75 percent sale of the company to the Prada Group. The company faltered without her at the helm, so she returned in 2003 only to resign again in 2004 and DISAPPEAR from the fashion world completely. (Major dramz.) She popped up again in 2009 to design the +J collection for Uniqlo, but she just resigned from that position recently too. And THIS is where it gets interesting, folks...

I'm OBSESSED with accessories. Like possibly in an unhealthy way. And if there's one label I come back to again and again (and proudly profess as my favorite *cough* dinosaur necklace *cough*), it's London's Tatty Devine. Launched in 1999, by friends and artistic duo Rosie Wolfenden and Harriet Vine, Tatty Devine makes bold accessories designed around a theme. What started as a few strips of leather turned into makeshift cuffs has blossomed into collections including everything from guitar pick pins and name necklaces to potato chip earrings and hats in the shape of watermelon slices. You guys, their stuff is GAHHHMAZING. Also, they're totally a favorite of Jessie J and Girls' Generation and are featured regularly in Teen Vogue. And on top of having two London shops and a new concept store in the super kewl Selfridges store (with someone laser cutting necklaces to order!), they sell all of their pieces online and ship worldwide. We spoke with Tatty's Harriet Vine in London, and not only did she give us a peek into what went into making their spring 2012 collection, she gave us a sneak peek at their FALL 2012 collection inspired by spooky English gardens…

Nicki Minaj in "Vogue" magazine.

Magazine covers excite then wither like the ebb and flow of a rollicking ocean tide. We get all worked up about the oncoming wave of a new actress or musician-adorned mag cover then forget all about it until the next titillating subject matter presents itself. Because information is delivered at lightning bolt-speed, when a fashion editor and famous person are spied sitting next to each other at an event or an actress in a ball gown stands next to a designer in Paris (hi, Kristen), we all begin to speculate on if there's a cover in the works. Usually, there is. Case in point, at New York Fashion Week last year, Nicki Minaj sat in the front row next to Anna Wintour at the Carolina Herrera show and we speculated that Minaj would be on a Vogue cover. Well, we were half right. Nicki M isn't on the cover, but she is featured in the March issue of Vogue with an in-depth interview. But more than that, SHE'S BLUE. Like totally and completely full out Smurfette BLUE. Let's discuss, shall we?

Coco Rocha for "Vogue Italia."
Photo: Steven Meisel/"Vogue Italia"

We've often wondered why it's taken so long for magazines to get on the ol' web band(width)wagon. Not to be all sassy-pants about it—because believe me, I am OBSESSED with printed magazines—but promoting your issue online in interesting ways is kind of where it needs to be. Yes, we all enjoy seeing an artist or actress looking otherworldly on the cover of a magazine (hi, Adele), but teasing it online or throwing in some behind-the-scenes video or outtakes makes the lead up to the actual issue all the more exciting. Give us a craymazing GIF, however, and we'll go bazonkers bananas. Really, how many magazines have done this? Not many. And how many have done them as well as Vogue Italia just did? This is trailblazing territory! So, YES, look at this insane GIF above. That's Coco Rocha shot by Steven Meisel for the March issue of Vogue Italia wearing loud tropical prints, gargantuan drop earrings, blue and yellow shadowed eyes, and a Twix bathing cap while sipping some sort of fast food beverage she's clutching with mega-leopard nails. You guys, THERE ARE NO WORDS. Also? There's more...

London Fashion Week is in full swing, and if there's any brand that's rolling out the most rollicking celeb-fueled thunder it's Mulberry. Known for its exquisite handbags, the popular British lifestyle brand has blossomed into a full-fledged fashion force in recent years with covetable collections mixing casual elegance with whimsical charm. Not only was the front row of the autumn/winter show packed with actresses like Michelle Williams and Elizabeth Olsen, the show was rounded out with female musicians Azealia Banks and Lana Del Rey, who also performed at the post-show Mulberry dinner wearing a dramatic black lace custom Mulberry dress. Oh, and she carried the latest Mulberry bag, the "Del Rey," made of white ostrich. Um, say what?

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
