Wondering who fashion's brightest, youngest actress is this year? Look no further than MaxMara's annual crowning of the 2013 Women In Film MaxMara Face Of The Future Award winner. The prize, which is given to a young actress every year, is a pretty solid predictor of what young ingenue is going to majorly step up her fashion game in the year to come, and also an indicator of a starlet who hasn't been a sartorial slouch in years prior either. Last year's award was given to Chloë Grace Moretz, who already had a taste for Chanel, but has since gone to countless fashion shows, been on countless magazine covers, and been named the face of Aeropostale. So who is going to be blowing up our Instagram feeds with her stylish swag in 2013? Hailee Steinfeld, ladies and gentlemen! Yeah, we know you're totally not surprised, she has already been the face of Miu Miu, after all.

An interior shot from Kate Moss and Rihanna's V Magazine spread.
Photo: V Magazine Facebook

Remember back in November when Rihanna leaked her V Magazine photos, in which she appears in flagrante delicto alongside Kate Moss? Shot by the inimitable Mario Testino, the spread basically made the internet explode, but I don't think anyone expected to have to wait this long to see the real thing. The racy photos were shot by the inimitable Mario Testino, and feature Kate and Rihanna in various states of undress, save for a heavy, glossy dose of black eyeliner and the occasional splash of lingerie and menswear. The accompanying article addresses the leak head-on, saying that it was the result of a hack that Rihanna thought was the real deal until the magazine told her otherwise. "I posted them because I was so excited...I was so bummed because I thought they were so sick," Rihanna says in the article accompanying the shoot, and we TOTALLY feel her. Can you imagine how hard it would be to shoot with a LEGENDARY model like Kate Moss and an equally incredible photographer and then have to wait months to show off your photos? TORTURE, we say! Rihanna wasn't the only one who was super excited for the pairing, however: Kate and her daughter Lila Grace are huge Rihanna fans as well! Check out a behind the scenes video from the shoot after the jump, and try not to get too hot and bothered.

Mitch Winehouse wearing a photo of his daughter Amy on the 2013 Brit Awards red carpet.

It's impossible not to get sad at the mere mention of Amy Winehouse's name, with her death a mere two years ago still pretty fresh in our minds. Amy's father, Mitch, has been keeping his daughter's memory alive through charity work, books, and countless appearances, his latest being on the red carpet of the 2013 BRIT Awards. Mitch took to the carpet outside of the O2 arena in London in a custom powder blue vest bearing the singer's photo. The image used is classic Amy: her wide eyes are painted with her signature swooped cat eye and her lips are bright pink and heavily-lined. You can also clearly see that she is wearing the Star of David pendent she was frequently spotted in (and that her mother now wears), and her trademark gold hoop earrings.

Karlie Kloss was all over New York Fashion Week this season.
Photo: Getty & Instagram

Sometimes we look at Karlie Kloss, in magazines or advertisements, baking cookies (or should we say, KOOKIES) or sharing a runway with Justin Bieber, and generally OWNING New York Fashion Week, and we get a little jealous. Wouldn't it be fun to be 6 feet tall and jet all over the world and get to wear all of those beautiful clothes? It would, but it would also be SO MUCH WORK. Like, we get to sleep in our own beds and wear flats to work sometimes. Also, have you ever had to walk in really high heels with someone watching you? Like, when you go on a date and realize maybe you aren't TOTALLY down with how many inches you have on your feet, and you get up to go to the bathroom and know your date is going to watch you walk away and you're like, OH NO I'M GONNA FALL, the entire way? Yes? Of course you get it. Well we can only imagine that being on a runway in giant heels is like that but about ten thousand times scarier because if you fall someone will put the photos on Getty and Youtube and I'm having sympathy pains just thinking about it. UGH. That was our long way of saying that Karlie Kloss is AMAZING and we're utterly in awe of her (which, duh, is why she's one of our House of Style hosts). This fashion week, Karlie not only walked in a number of the biggest shows, including Oscar De La Renta, Anna Sui and Carolina Herrera, but she ALSO served as the Mercedes-Benz ambassador, AND ran all around town handing out her kookies to famished show-goers from Milk Studios to Lincoln Center. NOT TO MENTION that she did all this AND flew to LA and back to be our red carpet correspondent for the Grammys. Are you tired yet? Oh also, she looked amazing doing all of this. AMAZING. See our gallery of Karlie's fashion week highlights after the jump!

Marc Jacobs' Fall 2013 Collection.

Was it a mars landing, or was it a pajama party, or was it just Marc Jacobs' Fall 2013 show at New York Fashion Week. If you said all of the above, you wouldn't be too far off the mark, no pun intended. After postponing his show due to shipping delays (thanks to winter storm Nemo, of course), Marc Jacobs held his show on Valentine's Day in his usual Park Avenue Armory, and almost immediately we understood why he wanted to wait to get his whole collection before putting it out there for the world to see. A rich collection of watery silks, ultra-thick furs, sequins, and wools presented in the round under a warm, beaming reddish sun, Jacobs certainly had something to be proud of. Unlike his most recent Spring 2013 collection, which was straight mod, with odes to Twiggy and her London not far from the surface, fall 2013 was far more nuanced. There was still that 60s love of collars and boxy coats, but there were also pieces absolutely dripping with a whole different type of glamour. The silk and sequined dresses, which hung off of the models like liquid silver, combined 20s silhouettes with 70s opulence, reminding me of The Great Gatsby and Studio 54 both. Topped with rich, heavy furs, they communicated wealth and beauty to the point of otherworldliness.

The three main colors of Anna Sui's A/W 2013 collection.

What is it about the 60's, and mod in particular, that has, and always will have, everyone all shook up. Is it the snappy hemlines--short but still girlish and innocent--or the clean lines? Or is it the way that the shapes, while singular and recognizable, lend themselves to basically any fabric? Or is it that slight, sweet whiff of rebellion that it's impossible not to get off of any garment modeled after the turbulent, swinging 60's? Either way, this has been yet another season where countless designers were inspired by mod, and Anna Sui was no different. Her show opened on the now-signature bob of Karlie Kloss, standing at the end of the runway with with a number of other models. They looked more like they were about to start singing than to walk down the runway, and so it wasn't really too much of a surprise when they began to sway back and forth with a go-go shimmy, like a silent, incredibly well dressed girl group. Karlie opened the show with a knowing, girlish smirk in one of most luxurious suits we have seen this season. In colors ranging from red to bright pink, bronze and orange, Karlie's opening look was like a school uniform gone mad, a small tie done in bright red sequins and a rounded collar. This collection was really about color and about fabric, showing silks, wools, and velvets in a range of warm jewel tones perfect for the chilliest days of fall. There were three main color palettes--red, blue, and green--and Sui kept each look within one of those palettes. This was no matchy-matchy monotone and there was no color blocking in sight. Take notes, because this wasn't just at Anna Sui: one of the biggest lessons we're taking from the shows is that there's nothing more glamorous than a play on pattern, and the brighter the better.

Willow Smith at Narciso Rodriguez and Michael Kors.

Move over Tavi, because there's a new fashion wunderkind in town! Ok so maybe nobody's competing here, but Willow Smith is definitely stepping up her already A+ fashion game. The 12 year old singer/actress is attending her first ever New York Fashion Week with mother Jada Pinkett-Smith this week, popping up at the Narciso Rodriguez and Michael Kors at Lincoln Center. We're actually surprised that this is Willow's first NYFW, given her amazing style (and not just for a tween) and her fashion blog, but better not-late-at-all than never. If this is the style Willow is rolling into shows with at 12, can you IMAGINE what it's going to be like when she's 16? 18? 21? We'll all be bowing at her feet, if we aren't confined to walkers by then, that is. For her first appearance, Willow wore a baby lamb track jacket, illustrated tee, black skinny sweatpants, combat boots, and an electric neon satchel. She gave just the right amount of petulant for someone her age, sassing the camera with a cotton candy pink pout. She switched it up at Michael Kors, trading her almost-all-black look for a classic white moto jacket with gold studs, studded boots, cropped leather pants, and an AMAZING gold top with conical spikes coming out of the fabric (a la Florence Welch at the Grammys). She paired this look with a white satchel and an Eye of Providence necklace. Killer. Is it weird that we're totally taking outfit notes from a 12 year old? but do you really think this girl went to the shows without nail art? Come on! Check out Willow's fashion week mani after the jump!

A still from Rihanna's "Stay" Video.
Photo: Island Def Jam/Vevo

There's been much ado made about how unbelievably beautiful Rihanna is. Having seen her in person myself, I can attest to the fact that nobody is exaggerating—Rihanna is insanely gorgeous. It seems to radiate out of her in that way that seems to be particular to the very, very famous, and it stops your mind a little bit. One of the main reasons for this, though, is that Rihanna doesn't need to rely on a lot of makeup pyrotechnics to make her look extraordinary—she's got everything she needs already. In her new video for "Stay," Rihanna goes sans makeup, proving to the entire world what we already knew, which is that any bells and whistles a makeup artist adds to that face are really just that. While going minimal makeup is hardly news, going NO makeup in HD is keeping things really real. HD cameras are not forgiving, ya'll. Rihanna still, of course, looks amazing, and now women all over the world know that she has pores. Can you believe that? RIHANNA HAS PORES?! *Slaps palm to forehead because society is sad* Her bare face isn't the only thing that's naked in the video though. Rihanna is in the bath throughout the clip, and you can get a good look at almost all of her shoes through water. A little scandalous, yes, but more beautiful than anything. The "Stay" video is stark, and beautiful, and as emotional as the song, which is one of our favorites off of Unapologetic. Although we love the epic "We Found Love" video, we have to say it's nice to see Rihanna harnessing the emotional weight of this song. Watch the full video after the jump!

Betsey Johnson leading her models in their workout.

Last New York Fashion Week, we celebrated Betsey Johnson's 70th birthday with a retrospective show, and it was MAJOR. This year, however, the cartwheel queen took a totally different approach, debuting her new dress line with what a pre-show press release promised would be a classic runway show with a secret theme. As the lights dimmed and the music came up on the backlit pink runway, with the mysterious "BJ Kicks A" emblazoned at the end of it, we still had no idea what was about to go down. However, an announcer came over the speakers and told us that we would be seeing the debut of Betsey Johnson's new aerobics program AND her workout line. The aforementioned press release ALSO said that Johnson's bags, shoes, and jewelry would be worn, so with this new development we knew we were in for a doozy of a show. As the models began walking down the runway, they mimed talking onto cell phones, doing flirty kicks and winks, and generally being a-dor-able and entirely unlike the dour super serious runway gaze we're used to. The clothes themselves were a mix of workout gear, party dresses, and accessories, all styled together in a wild explosion of colors and layers. If you're trying to imagine all of those things put together, just picture a bright blue tracksuit and hot pink sneaks topped with a faux fur white tie-necked shrug. Honestly, though, it wasn't the new collection that really had everyone talking after the show, it was the very Betsey antics that ensued.

Can you believe Karlie Kloss? The woman is an alien, being able to go straight from the Grammys to LAX and open a show at New York Fashion Week all in the span of 24 hours. We're really in awe. We're also in awe of Editor-at-large Mary H.K. Choi, who woke up at the crack of dawn yesterday to bring us all of the Grammys red carpet action, from her Reformation romper, to Karlie's glam-squad routine, to all of the night's crazy looks. Whew. All in the name of fashion, though, right? And boy, did the red carpet ever deliver on that front. From 2 Chainz's Versace cape, which Choi said was "classic to the point of medieval," to Rihanna's classic, old Hollywood glam red gown that Kloss said "made her blend into the carpet" (in a good way) and Florence Welch's custom Givenchy which VH1 host Carrie Keagan said was "channeling her inner dragon," there was so much on the carpet to talk about, we knew we had to pull all of our hosts together to rehash it all. Watch the full recap right here!

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