Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse for Fred Perry

It's still sad to think about Amy Winehouse's tragic passing. She had the kind of timeless voice that doesn't come around that often. Her second album, Back to Black, made her an international star and the image on the cover was that of a faintly defiant, subtly forlorn girl wearing an off-white strapless dress adorned in mini red dots and a thick, red leather belt, her feet tipped-out in dainty leopard print peep-toes. The actual dress was designed by Disaya Sorakraikitikul, a graduate of London's Central Saint Martins school, and now it can be YOURS. That's right, the dress Amy actually wore on the cover of the original U.K. album (there was a different cover for U.S. distribution) is for sale as part of a charity auction, and the estimates are jacked up to the tens of thousands. How much do you think it will sell for?

Kanye West performs at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.

OK, Kanye West. You're seriously warming our hearts this week, dude. First of all, you rocked a leather KILT at your Madison Square Garden show, then you went and gave free tix to the staff of the Mercer Hotel as a thank you (and even chartered a bus for them!), and THEN you gave a front row seat to someone wearing cool sneaks at your show (specifically the Jeremy Scott x Adidas ones), which is really nice. Dannnnng, boy, you're really turning it OUT in STYLE! This is some endearing behavior. We're also enamored with your choice to wear Versace for H&M during a performance at the Victoria's Secret fashion show. What else do you have up your philanthropic tropical leopard print sleeve, Yeez? Oh, just some seriously sweet comments about your MOM. *Hearts melting*

Stars Accessories width=

I'm going to get right to it. I like accessories. Like, A LOT. I never leave home without something on my person selected from a motley crew of plastic animals, found pins, hand-me-down bracelets, brooches, vintage necklaces, bits of fabric, and random earrings that I'm not ashamed to say is kept in an assortment of shoeboxes. Here's the thing, if you're a skinnies and tee gal, or you really love your new jean jacket but think it needs jazzing, OR if just don’t have the time to throw together some elaborate street photographer-ready outfit, you can spruce up anything (and I do mean ANYTHING) with an awesome accessory or two (or three, trust me). My favorite thing for fall has been layering accessories by a theme too. Ever wondered if you can wear polka dots on top of polka dots or if it's cool to wear several different animals at once? I'm here to tell you that IT'S OK; in fact, it's an easy way to add a bit of whimsy to your outfit. Also, it works with practically any combo. Here are some ideas...

SEEING STARS

Stars are HUUUUGE for fall. Not only were they all over Dolce & Gabbana's fall collection, they've been knocked off by pretty much every retailer (which means you can get your hands on this look for LESS). I personally don't think there's any wrong amount of stars in an outfit. Sky's the limit, y'know? They just work for some reason, and in abundance. I would invest in this ASOS Swarovski Silver and Crystal Pleasure Star Ring ($109.62) because it truly goes with everything (and is really cute dressed up or down). Pair it with black skinny jeans, a white T-shirt, and this Topshop Black Star Print Blazer ($130). Throw this Just Acces Toft Leather Star Pendant ($26.96) over your tee and you're good to go! *Bonus sparkle* Add some glittery oxfords and your look screams INTERSTELLAR CHIC. Need more ideas? Right this way please...

Chris Hemsworth and Kristen Stewart in "Snow White and the Huntsman."

We're starting to ache over how much we're DYING to see Snow White and the Huntsman. Every time an image is released or new info emerges, we devour it like a box of warm maple glazed donuts. Well, folks, hug yo'selves and reach for the napkins because a new poster for the movie has arrived, and it's comforting, delicious, and totally drool-inducing! I mean, GEEEEEZ, Kristen Stewart is truly the fairest of them all in this new photo, right? She's glowing with longhaired, leather-fisted, all ovah badassery in the tender shadows of those overgrown magic mushrooms. And HOLY HEMSWORTH. Just gaze into the taut 'n' tanned face of Mr. Chris Hemsworth for a minute. It's a little trance-inducing with that faint widow's peak and layer upon layer of suede and leathAH heritage clothing all buttoned up to the chin hairs. Why did everything suddenly start spinning? Oh, because I'm PASSING OUT.

kanye west leather kilt watch the throne tour

Whenever there's a lull in the day or a collective silence, or sometimes when the fashion horizon is cloudy and gray, we here at MTV Style like to ponder what's transpiring in the world of Kanye West. Always an arbiter of style and, as of late, a bona fide designer, too, Mr. West never fails to kick it up at events or turn it out on the streets. We know he's currently touring his Watch the Throne project with Jay-Z, so when we checked in to see what he's been wearing onstage, we were astounded, y'all. Not only was he wearing the EXACT SAME Air Yeezy 2s and leather pants combo we spied him wearing on the sidewalks of Soho recently, he was also wearing a—gasp—LEATHER KILT.

Immortal Twilight Eau de Parfum
Photo: TwilightBeauty.com

Having read the books (maybe a few times) and seen the movies (more than a few times), many of us are already aware of how intoxicating Bella Swan smells to Edward Cullen in Twilight. Her scent first made him want to kill her and later made him confess that he was drawn to her like heroin, so Essence d'Bella must be pretty powerful. We've always tried to imagine what it might smell like … Base notes of sunshine, cactus flower, and salad greens, top notes of pine needles, moonflower, and apple blossom? Apparently, none of the above. Thanks to the mix masters over at Twilight Beauty, we now have somewhat of an idea with their new fragrance, Immortal Twilight. Would you have guessed Bella smells of citrus and WILD chamomile??

Chloë Sevigny as Terry Richardson on the cover of "Candy" magazine.

No, your eyes aren't deceiving you, that IS Chloë Sevigny dressed as Terry Richardson on the cover or Candy magazine. (But really, squint your eyes and look at that cover. It's TERRY. Yes, it clearly says CHLOË SEVIGNY in big, bold print but it's totally Terry!) Honestly, we did a double take when first spying the cover of the latest issue of Candy, the first transversal style magazine, because there's such a likeness there. We know Miss S is a talented, Oscar-nominated actress, but she's truly capturing an essence here. It's like she's channeling Terry through the thumbs or something...

Models walk the runway during the Paco Rabanne Spring 2012 Paris Fashion Week show.

Avant-garde fashion is all about audacity and spectacle but rarely does it make it to life off the runway—that is unless you're a pop star. If there's one happy marriage between fashion and music, it has to be CRAZY OUTFITS. (Admit it, we love them!) And if there's any current pop star who brings the most innovative, arresting, talked about creations to LIFE it's Lady Gaga (of course). Mother Monster has turned edgier designers into superstars overnight (hello, Sally LaPointe and Asher Levine), and if her recent appearance at this year's 2011 EMA is any indication, the newly resurrected 1960s label, Paco Rabanne, is about to experience a SURGE in popularity. Our lady wore five different Rabanne outfits to the awards show and all of them were CRAZY AWESOME. We're talking a floor-length gown made of silver squares, giant cylindrical dresses that resembled metallic coffee filters, and a GORGE teal-green lady suit topped with a disc hat that completely covered her face. We're expecting the house of Paco Rabanne to be the next big thing even though it's been around for more than 40 years. Thus, here are five very important things you need to know about the former designer, the new designer, and why Lady Gaga is all up in its biz.

It's SNOOKI in IRELAND, y'all! She's just chillin' on the pink carpet at the 2011 EMA with NEW HAIRRRR, ca-ching bling, and all kinds of snazzy bedazzling while, most likely, waiting for her mega-tanned, juiced-up, leprechaun meatball prince to carry her away to a (chilly) Irish beach. All we have to say is, you can take the girl outta Jersey, but you can't take the Jersey Shore outta the girl. Snooks was all about a super-sliiiim fitting look to show off her bodacious bod and perma-tan, but that's not just what captured our attention. It was this new, CHIC, side-swept hairDO and inverted, intricate mani. What exactly IS painted on her nails?

Lady Gaga poses backstage with her awards for Best Video, Best Song, Best Female, and Biggest Fans during the 2011 MTV EMA on Nov. 6, 2011, in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Silvery space-age scales, maroon doilies, a giant accordion-style coffee filter, cylindrical face-covering hats, and undulating kale. THIS is what makes an awards appearance by Lady Gaga so special. SHE NEVER DISAPPOINTS! And her presence at this year's MTV Europe Music Awards (aka EMA) as both a performer and nominee (and multiple awards winner) was also another WIN for the Haus of Gaga style cannon. Mother Monster took home four awards, including—her personal fave—the Biggest Fans award. She was also, in our humble opinion, the best style slayer of the night, and her various looks all seemed to follow a similar theme, one we'd like to call FUTURISTIC ALIEN WARRIOR PRINCESS. With ALL outfits by Paco Rabanne, hats by the GENIUS Philip Treacy, with squadrons of dancers wearing Void Of Course (which you may remember from the dildo shoe incident of yore [THANK YOU, NICOLA FORMICHETTI FOR THE CREDITS!]), and that body-con, to-the-floor, silver scaled gown above topped with a multilayered side-pony and a gaggle of matching trophies? Well that's just the beginning, folks.

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