Pharrell at the 2014 BET Awards.

If 2014 has taught us anything it's that where there's an awards show, there's Pharrell in an outfit destined to inspire a parody Twitter account. Say hello to @PharrellsUggs, the latest addition to growing group that includes @Pharrellshat and @PharrellsShorts. After winning Video of the Year for "Happy," Pharrell took to the stage in a pair of Fair Isle Uggs. This surprised a lot of people on Twitter but what else would you expect from the person who made shorts acceptable on the Oscars red carpet? Pharrell's just doing Pharrell and staying true to his Etsy-chic, cozy style.

If you watched, like, one minute of the BET Awards Red Carpet coverage, you know it's hot in L.A. The best way to cool down if you're too hot? Forgo a shirt! Just ask Nicki Minaj–she performed at the show in a shirt (IDK if that's what to call it, TBH) made from gold chains. Her hair was long, wavy, and strategically placed. When riding a motorcycle inside you have to take precautions, OK? This is a PG-rated show.

Hey guys, hope you enjoyed your weekend so far. If you're anything like me, you're probably a little pooped from Pride and are curled up in your living room watching the BET Awards. And like me, I'm assuming your favorite part of the BET Awards (or any award show, for that matter) is the live Twitter commentary. I've taken the liberty of rounding up some of our favorite side-by-side style comparisons. Enjoy! In the meantime, I'm gonna head back to watching the feeds and the show. *sips some tea*

Lorde at the 2014 MuchMusic Video Awards.

While the Jenners were in various states of undress—exposing pelvic bones and other body parts—at this weekend's MuchMusic Awards, Lorde made just as big of a statement wearing not one but two pantsuits, which have become something of her signature look. They weren't your average Zzz-inducing black two-pieces, because Lorde is literally incapable of being boring. Rather, both were intensely '90s, undeniably #normcore (as eye-rolly as that descriptor is, it couldn't be more neccessary here), and in unexpected hues.

It's been a while since we saw Ariana Grande perform in anything other than black and white, but last night at the 2014 MuchMusic Video Awards she broke out some major sequins. Goodbye monochrome, hello sparkle. Ariana performed "Problem" in a matching crop top and skirt with her hair lookin' quite voluminous in its perma half-up/half-down 'do. She did, however, bring one element from her mod "Problem" looks with her to Canada—dem boots!

By now, you've all seen what Rihanna wore to the CFDA Awards earlier this week. Y'know, that sparkly dress that would DEF get censored by Instagram? The rhinestone-studded gown was nothing short of a work of art. And like all works of art, it takes a lot of time and dedication to reach the final product. In the case of Rih's dress, that dedication looks something like an entire team of people gluing microscopic crystals onto fabric with tweezers.

Adam Selman, Rihanna's costume designer and collaborator, posted a video to Instagram of that process, writing: "Detail of my incredible team at work with @official_swarovski and @rupaulsdragrace led by the true queen @meetingsmagazine #glamazon." Glamazon, indeed! We kind of can't stop watching this mesmerizing video on repeat, even though the tediousness threatens to make our brains explode. Ah, what we do in the name of #FASHUN.

Last night, for the third year in a row, Kristen Bell hosted the CMT Music Awards. While in previous years she was joined by co-hosts—Toby Keith and Jason Aldean—this is the first year she went at it solo and she took the opportunity to talk about men's fashion. Specifically, tight jeans. Real tight. In response to Kristen's "Moose Knuckles" tune, we wrote a response using the medium we're most familiar with: emoji.

Kacey Musgraves

If there's one thing Kacey Musgraves knows, it's how to make an entrance. She burst onto the country music scene fairly recently, but she's already become the genre's newest sweetheart. And she's equally sensational when it comes to her fashion choices, as proven by her duo of dresses at Wednesday night's CMT Music Awards.

Kacey wore two different black ensembles over the course of the evening (maybe she's been listening to a lot of Johnny Cash lately?), but they couldn't be any further from your classic LBDs. She appeared first in a glamorous and formal gown with a cinched-waist full skirt. The whole thing could have been very uptight, were it not for the beaded trim and Kacey's fun and casual updo.

CMT Awards

Let's play, y'all.

The 2014 CMT Music Awards are tonight (yeeeeehaw!), which means it's time to bust out your Carrie Underwood CD and watch line dancing videos on YouTube. It ALSO means you only have a few hours to brush up on your sense of country style (which, BTW, is very on-trend right now). You don't want to be the only one missing out on the celebrities' sartorial nods to the Wild West, do you?

In case you were unaware of why Rihanna was wearing that sheer, yet totally sparkly, dress last night, it's because it was Monday, duh. A casual Monday night outfit, right? JK, it was because she was named the CFDA Fashion Icon of the Year and she needed to bring it, big time. After being introduced by Anna Wintourusing emojis, BTW—Rihanna delivered a short and sweet speech in which she touched on how much she loves fashion and, as always, was a total badgal/the best.

Below are a few of our fave quotes from her speech last night on top of some of our all-time fave ~lewks~.Enjoy!

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