Today, Forever 21 released their collaboration collection with the NBA. From loose layering tanks to teeny mesh shorts, cropped short-sleeved jerseys to easy T-shirt dresses, the range features sporty but still feminine pieces repping seven of the league's teams: the L.A. Lakers and Clippers, the New York Knicks, the Brooklyn Nets, the Boston Celtics, the Miami Heat, and the Chicago Bulls. Most of the items are free of player affiliations by way of names and numbers, but there are a few special cases.

IDK about you, but I generally like to know at least a little about what I'm wearing before I step out into the world repping it, so if you feel the same and need some schooling in the NBA history department, I'm here to help. Consider this your Forever 21 x NBA collection primer.

#91 CHICAGO BULLS

Thanks to Miley Cyrus, Mike Will Made It, and their "23" ode to Michael Jordan and his namesake shoes, '90s-era Chicago Bulls gear is cooler than ever (well, since the actual '90s, anyway). Naturally, that solidified their spot in this collab line, but instead of showcasing the team's current star, #1 Derrick Rose, a Bulls dress ($16) AND a bodysuit ($14) feature The Worm, #91 Dennis Rodman. Rodman is definitely one of the greats and certainly one of the most fashion-forward NBA players, maybe ever, so this is a good pick for the edgier/nostalgic NBA fan.

LeBron James

Masks: They've been around forever! Perhaps even literally since anthropologists haven't been able to pinpoint the origin of face coverings (yet). The world's oldest known surviving mask is made of stone, dates to 7000 B.C., and currently lives at Musee Biblique in France, but there's no telling whether people were shielding their mugs well before that or not.

Masks come in all shapes and sizes, from lacquered, half-face, Phantom of the Opera joints to flashy but flimsy full-dome luchador numbers. Much of the time they're purely aesthetic—a visual aid to some form of entertainment (see: Jabbawockeez) or meant to conceal identity (Anonymous' Guy Fawkes)—but they're functional accessories, too. A mask is a muzzle for Hannibal Lecter, a kind of painkiller for Bane, and far less terrifyingly (well, to some), a facial shield for Lebron James, who has been wearing a mask during games since breaking his nose last month.

Sunday night (March 2), the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences doled out awards for excellence in all aspects of film over the past year, sending Jared Leto, Matthew McConaughey, Cate Blanchett, our girl crush Lupita Nyong'o, and many more home toting gilded Oscar statuettes. But L.A.'s Dolby Theatre stage wasn't the only place where people were winning at the 2014 Academy Awards: Hollywood's biggest and brightest stars cleaned up on the red carpet, too. MTV News' Christina Garibaldi, our #shehashadit bestie Jarvis Derrell, and I had a summit of the minds and picked out our favorites.

Today's the big day! The 2014 Oscars take place tonight, thus ceremoniously ending winter awards season for the year and crowning (essentially) the kings and queens of Hollywood for the next 365 days. There were so many important, beautiful films released this year (I know firsthand; I watched most of them yesterday—thanks, internet!), and while certainly not all of them did, many had surprising style moments that stuck with us long after the credits rolled. In an attempt to commemorate these standout scenes, we've rendered them in our favorite medium: emoji.

'DALLAS BUYERS CLUB': RAYON'S DRESS QUESTION

Jared Leto's Rayon is a girl with a heart of gold. Even while receiving treatment for her HIV from Dr. Eve Saks (Jennifer Garner), she's making sure the cut of her dress is just inappropriate enough. *WINK*

Sure, many of the Oscars most-anticipated awards are doled out for exemplary acting, but don't forget, it's a night of musical performances, too. Gold statuettes of little bald men are awarded to Best Original Score AND Best Original Song winners, and often, there's time in the ceremony for the nominees to take the stage. As we gear up for Sunday night and the potential return of Pharrell's giant hat *fingers crossed*, we're looking back at some of the best performance outfits in Academy Awards history.

MADONNA IN 1991

Of course, we have to kick this off with Madonna. Arguably THE best Oscars onstage outfit of all time (IMHO), Madge channeled Marilyn Monroe for her performance of "Sooner or Later" from the Dick Tracy soundtrack.

She OWNED the stage in a slinky strapless white gown, a white fur stole, glamorous over-the-elbow gloves, and platinum blonde waves.

If you haven't been following along with VH1's four-part roll out of Steve Stoute's The Tanning of America documentary, that's OK. The whole thing is streaming online now, so you can catch up. If you're not familiar with the premise of the doc or with Stoute's 2011 book of the same name, the mini-series aims to show hip-hop's evolution from infancy to its current mammoth cultural footprint, illuminating watershed moments in film, business, politics, and (our favorite) fashion along the way with commentary from prominent minds and voices like Rick Rubin, Russell Simmons, Diddy, Nas, and Mariah Carey.

The episodes span from the introduction of racial issues and themes on American television in the '70s (by way of shows like All in the Family and The Jeffersons) all the way to present day. The first episode boasts priceless footage of a young Rubin (sans beard!) fresh off of founding Def Jam Records with Russell Simmons as well as throwback clips of Run DMC in the studio, recording their version of "Walk This Way."

The tracksuit and dookie-chain-wearing trio from Queens is also responsible for the very first hip-hop fashion collaboration: Adidas' $1.5 million endorsement deal of Run DMC, thanks in large part to the group's influence in reviving the three-stripe Adidas shell toes.

If you even remotely like Mariah Carey, clothes, or IDK Planet Earth, there is a jacket that just came in stock at Nasty Gal that you NEED to know about. The brainchild of notoriously irreverent brand Unif, our new favorite statement piece first came to our attention about a month ago, courtesy of a sneak-peek Instagram, and we've been feverishly refreshing the e-tailer's homepage ever since.

Driver, roll up the partition, please. I can only watch Beyonce's "Partition" music video in private because this ish is WAY TOO STEAMY. *douses face with a cup of cold water, fans self vigorously* Members of the esteemed BeyHive (of which I am most definitely a part) have been watching this vid—along with the other 16 from her visual album—since late last year, but it just dropped in full for the world wide web to view today! Directed by Jake Nava and styled by B. Akerlund (plus Ty Hunter, obvi), the short follows Mrs. Carter through a VIVID mid-breakfast fantasy sequence.

We open on King Bey posted up in very Downton Abbey eating quarters, nomming on breakfast and tea (presumably with her hubby Jay Z). She's clad in a crisp Chanel robe, CC certified earrings, black-rimmed Tom Ford cat-eye reading glasses, and a turquoise silk lingerie set with black lace details from La Perla Neglige. Oh, also BRIGHT red lips and nails.

Sure, the Oscars are the crown jewel of awards season fashion as far as the red carpet is concerned, but don't sleep on the Costume Designers Guild Awards. The clothes from your favorite movies and TV shows (and even commercials) deserve love, too, and the CDGAs is where they get it. Being that we're fans of style off and on the screen, we're breaking down this year's biggest winners.

BEHIND THE CANDELABRA

Category: Outstanding Made For Television Movie Or Mini Series
Winner: Behind the Candelabra costume designer, Ellen Mirojnick
What Makes This Wardrobe Rad: It's no secret that we loved (still and will forever love, TBH) HBO's Liberace biopic, Behind the Candelabra. Between Michael Douglas drenched (DRENCHED) in head-to-toe baby pink sequins and Matt Damon swanning out of kidney bean-shaped pools in bedazzled man-kinis, what's not to love, amirite? Liberace is the definition of over-the-top opulence, and BOY, Ellen Mirojnick delivered.

And, while it's hard to tell because Douglas and Damon (AND ROB LOWE) are pictured pulling so many Drakes ("I wear every single chain, even when I'm in the house"), dripping with gold at every hour of the day, I dare say Ellen didn't go too far overboard with the baubles and gems. In a really surprising way, it all feels just right.

What to say about Jeremy Scott's inaugural runway collection for Moschino that hasn't already been said? It just makes a ton of sense. The Italian high-fashion mainstay has built a brand on years of irreverence, and Jeremy, the blonde, pompadoured mastermind behind winged and teddy bear-ed sneakers and so much more, is precisely the designer to steer it into 2014 and beyond. But you knew that. We all knew that. The moment the announcement was made that he'd be taking over the reins for the exeunt Rossella Jardini, you could hear the entire fashion community raising their right hands to smack themselves upside the forehead because DUH. And if for some reason you weren't a believer then, surely the lookbook photos for his debut pre-Fall 2014 collection were enough to sway you.

It was yesterday, though, that Jeremy sent his first runway collection for Moschino down the catwalk at Milan Fashion Week. After getting to a bit of a late start and a few boos minor bumps in the road, Scott kicked things off with a sea of vibrant red and yellow: His McDonald's-inspired runway capsule collection (of which some of the pieces are available for purchase right now, BTW). The Mickey D-leaning wares skew the burger chain's iconic golden arches, rendering them into Moschino's own M-heart logo, and give the brand's own recurring cow print new meaning when shown side by side with a glorified fry cook's uniform.

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