Ahh, FASHION. Although we love to obsess over drape, color, pattern, and detail at the shows, the sad fact is that many of our fave styles at New York Fashion Week just don't translate to our every day lives. As much as we wish the tail of that Jeremy Scott monster suit wouldn't get SO GROSS dragging around the New York subway system, the fact is that some things are better left on the runway. Can the same be said for beauty looks? While we're not going to be rocking technicolor bowl cuts à la Betsey Johnson's Fall 2013 show anytime soon, we wanted to see if some of the bolder runway looks from New York Fall 2013 Fashion Week might just be the bit of high fashion oomph our tired daily routines have been missing. What better way to figure this out for sure than to test them out, we thought, and so this post was born. Should we get over our phobia of pairing a super dark eye with a bright red lip? Gaby Wilson tried out Jen Kao's striking look to find out. Are white brows and orange shadow a thing we should get into? Liza Darwin served amazing Karen Walker to see. Can lightning blots be a thing that works...on your face? Chrissy Mahlmeister took a cue from Jeremy Scott and can tell you. And finally, could we add a little old Hollywood horror to our old standby cat-eye? Maud Deitch road-tested The Blonds' beauty look to know for sure. For the skinny on how we got each look, what products we used, and just how wearable they really were, look no further than after the jump!
Oh. My. Gah. The 2013 Grammys are officially over, and we have to say—this has been one of the best dressed events to date. Everyone looked so classy and cool in their simply chic gowns (and suits!), and we're still dying over it. Rihanna stunned us in a sizzling red number while Taylor Swift went the Grecian goddess route in a plunging white gown, but overall, we are super proud of our top 10 Grammy red carpet picks because they are just STUNNING. Check 'em out below!
BEYONCE IN OMAN YOUSEFZADA

We've already said so many words about Beyonce's Oman Yousefzada jumpsuit. How it reminded us of her leaked Vogue cover and how she and Hov were totes matchy-matchy. But it's the poised boss lady elegance of the look amidst all those wardrobe malfunctions waiting to happen that lands her on our Best Dressed list.
Miguel talks Mugler and Saint Laurent for the red carpet.

Could Miguel be any more attractive? Not to make it all about the looks, because a huge part of his attractiveness is in the fact that he writes songs that turn us into quivering puddles of jelly, but man. We've been getting woozy along to his album, Kaleidoscope Dream all year, so it was no surprise when we heard he would be walking down the Grammys red carpet come February 10th (can you believe Grammys are TODAY? Wild). So what's one of the hottest guys in R'n'B going to wear tonight? With a keen eye and an appreciation for some of the finest fashion innovators—Mugler's Nicola Formichetti and Saint Laurent's Hedi Slimane—you can bet it's going to be major. We caught up with Miguel in LA to chat designers, how he feels about labels in general, and to look at some UNBELIEVABLE studded Prada creepers. Seriously, if a pair of shoes could be as cartoon wolf eyes hot as Miguel, it would be these. Watch the video after the jump!
With so many winter awards shows running, it's hard to stand out from the crowd. While we'll always have a soft spot for that little music event in February, the Golden Globe Awards are absolutely one of our favorite shows because the worlds of film and television merge for one magical night of sartorial one-upping. From silver screen starlets like Anne Hathaway to small screen sweethearts like Sarah Hyland and even soundtrack songstresses like Taylor Swift, the PYTs turned it out for the Globes step-and-repeat, and while it was a lofty task, we've whittled it all down into our list of the top 10 best dressed ladies of the night.
ANNE HATHAWAY IN CHANEL COUTURE

The lovely, doe-eyed Anne Hathaway shone bright in winter white Chanel couture. The dress, surprisingly resurfaced from the label's Spring 2009 archives, featured a sleek strapless neckline cutting straight across the chest and the look of being two pieces. The Les Miserables star won big tonight not only for her award as "Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture," but also with her strikingly simple column dress.
Happy New Year from MTV Style!.
We once heard that the way you spend New Year's Eve is the way you're going to spend the rest of the year, and let us tell you, it put a whole lot of pressure on the holiday. Making sure you have the right dress, the right shoes, the right party, and the right cutie to kiss at midnight can be a lot of work for a moment that goes by in the blink of an eye and a flash of confetti. Nevertheless, we love it, and totally buy into the whole New Year New Start vibe of the holiday as well. No, we're not going on juice cleanses or joining gyms, swearing off the occasional french fry lunch in the lodge, but we ARE making some serious commitments to overhaul our sartorial situations come 2013. We spend A LOT of time thinking about clothes, whether they're on our favorite MTV Style stars, on our readers, or on ourselves, but there isn't one of us who doesn't feel like they're in at least a little bit of a rut. Check out our New Year's Style resolutions after the jump, and add your own in the comments!
