Have you HEARD? Selena Gomez is performing at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, April 14! Not only will this mark Sel's first musical performance in honor of the Golden Popcorn, it'll also be the first televised performance of her new forthcoming single, "Come & Get It," the debut track from Miss Gomez's new album, set to be released this summer. After so many months of following Selena (the actress) making the press rounds for Spring Breakers, seeing her get back into the role of Selena (the singer) is guaranteed to be a really fun change of pace. Even if it might get a little confusing. Sel has said several times that she has a kind of split style personality, opting for one kind of look when she does film and a different look when she does music. So then what happens when she performs music at an awards show for FILMS?!?? We'll see for ourselves come April 14, but until then, we're speculating based on some trends we've noticed from her history of performance ensembles.
SHOW-STOPPING CURTAIN SKIRTS

We're not 100% positive that "curtain skirts" is the scientific name for this look, but for the better part of 2012, Selena was almost always wearing some iteration of this silhouette on stage. The number is a teeny tiny base outfit (usually extreme hot pants or a very dangerous mini) with a chiffon-type floor-length skirt wrapped about 3/4 of the way around, leaving a kind of window for Selena's spec-TAC-ular legs. It's a kind of best-of-both-worlds outfit that provides all the gam-glorifying of a bodysuit and all the drama of an ethereal gown.
Oh, you thought awards season was over? Not so fast, y'all. Yep, we're talking about the Nickelodeon 2013 Kids' Choice Awards, which went down tonight in Los Angeles. And what a night it was! From the trampoline on the orange carpet to the get-up-and-dance performances to duh, the SLIME, this was one jam-packed couple of hours. And because we're alllll about the fashion over here, you didn't think we'd leave you without a *~totally and completely official~* best dressed list, did you? No way. So let's do this!
SELENA GOMEZ IN OSCAR DE LA RENTA

Our girl Selena Gomez kicked off one of the top trends of the night in her shorts and peplum ensemble by Oscar de la Renta. Keeping things easy, breezy, and effortless, she paired the separates with strappy heels and a neutral clutch for pretty much our DREAM springtime outfit. Ahem, now if only the weather would cooperate...
Ke$ha performing at the 2013 Kids' Choice Awards.
We all know that Ke$ha is the ultimate party animal, and she certainly didn't disappoint at the 2013 Kids' Choice Awards. The singer performed a little bit of "We R Who We R" AND "C'mon" at the show, and did so while wearing what we're confident was THE CRAZIEST outfit of the night. We knew she Ke$sha had something up her sleeve when she showed up on the red carpet with her little bro, channeling 90's comedy classic Dumb & Dumber in a powder blue suit, so we can't say we were shocked when her on stage look was a veritable kooky feast for the eyes. KeSha took to the stage with her hair pulled back in a tight ponytail (channeling Iggy Azalea, perhaps? Or Katy Perry's 2012 KCA look?), wearing one one of the most epic outfits we've seen, maybe ever. Bold statement, we know, but let's just look at it in parts. Multi-colored fun fur? check. Holographic shorts? check. Creepers? Check. Neon button up? Check. It's like 70's New York City punk, 90's rave and aughts Brooklyn got into a fight all over our girl. Did we mention that we love it? We love it.
Katy Perry in Herve Leger.
MEOW! Katy Perry took to the 2013 Kids Choice Awards red carpet tonight in a look that not only showcased the crop top—one of the biggest trends of the season—but fit in with the fun, silly atmosphere of the awards show perfectly. Now, we know that Katy has gone ALL OUT at the event in the past, but we have to say that we're loving her look. Katy, who won the award for Favorite Female Singer, paired a simple, side-parted hairstyle, bubble gum pink lip, and patent Louboutins with a show stopping patterned Herve Leger skirt set. Showing off her killer bod in the designer's signature figure-hugging silhouette, Katy looked relaxed and gorgeous. While it may look like a simple outfit at first glance, there's actually quite a lot going on in both pieces. From the zipper spanning the entire length of the skirt, to the sportswear-inspired cross-back of the top, Katy's Herve is a welcome break from a sea of cocktail frocks.
Jaden Smith, Willow Smith, Louie Sebert and Ke$ha at the 2013 Kids' Choice Awards.
It was a family affair on the orange carpet at the 2013 Kids Choice Awards! Brother and sister duos like Ke$ha and Louie Sebert and Jaden and Willow Smith strolled together in sibling style.
When it comes to the Smiths, well ya can't really get much more sibling star power than the two of them (especially after we've already seen instances of their coordinating style- please say this will become a thing!?). Jaden kept it simple with an oversized black hoodie, pants and sneaks, really letting Willow shine. The budding fashion maven rocked a denim jacket, white textured frock, some well-loved Chanel boots and neon socks for a pop of color.

It's been a minute since we last heard from Kristen Stewart—and after dealing with an injured foot at the Oscars, girl probably could've used a break! So needless to say, we were psyched to see the actress out at tonight's 2013 Kids' Choice Awards, turning heads in a major way. Dressed in a navy blue shorts outfit designed by Osman Studio, K.Stew looked KILLER, that much is obvious. While we all know she can rock floor-length gowns like a pro, and it's also a well-publicized fact that she loooves to go cas in sneakers and a t-shirt, the cool thing about her outfit here is that it actually straddles the line between the two. Part off-duty K.Stew and part ultra-glam movie star, these easygoing shorts plus classic black pumps are the perfect combination. It's not the first time she's eschewed a dress for shorts at events, and the leggy look is a formula that obviously works.
Ke$ha, Kiernan Shipka, and Austin Mahone at the 2013 Kids' Choice Awards.
You guys know how much we love awards shows. We LOVE them. Pretty dresses and our favorite celebs? Sign us up! You know what else we love, though? We love being silly, and we love SLIME. You might be scratching your head and thinking "slime?" but more likely, you know just what we're talking about. We're talking about the green stuff that's going to be all over some of our favorite stars at the 2013 Kids Choice Awards tonight, of course! Ke$ha rocked the red carpet in a powder blue suit, Kiernan Shipka looks adorable in an a-line dress and pistol boots, and Austin Mahone is casual cool in a varsity jacket, jeans, and sneakers. That's just the tip of the celebrity iceberg, though, and we're going to be giving you the scoop on all of the amazing style all night long! Check out more of the 2013 Kids' Choice Awards red carpet fashion photos below!

Madonna at the 2013 GLAAD Awards.
Madonna has a few "axes to grind" with society, and she aired her grievances last night at the 2013 GLAAD Awards before presenting Anderson Cooper with the Vito Russo award. However, her political commentary began before she stepped onto the GLAAD awards stage. It started when she got dressed to go to the event and slipped into a stylized, grown up-sized Boy Scouts of America uniform. Madonna wore the uniform as a form of protest, signaling her stance on the organization's notoriously homophobic beliefs.
Thanks to the 2013 mtvU Woodie Awards, yesterday was a HUGE day for the MTV family here in Austin. Situated smack dab in the midst of the SXSW music festival, so many of our favorite artists took the stage in the name of MTV. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Haim, Joey Bada$$, Trinidad James and so many more straight-up killed it yesterday, musically and sartorially.
MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS

We're pretty consistently impressed with Macklemore's performance style, but this Southwest blanket vest situation has to be Top 10 so far. I mean, HAI, the weave of this thing is unbelievably festive. Mack took the sleeveless topper off mid-way through his set, but Ryan Lewis and the laundry list of guest features kept the fashion action coming with Wanz in a red three-piece suit and printed blazer, Mary Lambet serving retro '50s steez, and Schoolboy Q rocking a Supreme hockey jersey and printed bucket hat.
Whichever way you cut it, Jennifer Lawrence is a winner. Whether we're speaking in traditional terms about her 2013 Oscars Best Actress in a Leading Role statuette, about her endearingly colorful press room commentary after falling on stage, or even her fit-for-a-princess Dior Haute Couture gown, J.Law has won over our hearts by being simultaneously talented beyond her years, drop-dead gorgeous, and charmingly affable. We could go on for days about all the reasons we love the spunky beauty, but being that fashion is our primary domain, we're laser-focusing on that. More specifically, we're taking a long, hard look back on Jennifer's exemplary red carpet fashion throughout this 2013 winter awards season. LEGGO!

Jennifer was breath-taking and regal at the 2013 Oscars in this ballerina pink Dior Haute Couture gown. The large trumpeted skirt may have been to blame for her little spill, but J.Law handled that little mishap with grace and still looked beautiful and poised for press room questions. Just the day before, Lawrence took a break from her red carpet Dior (she is the newest face of Miss Dior handbags, after all), accepting her Film Independent Spirit Award for Best Female Lead for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook in striking angular Lanvin.
Emmanuel Riva may have snagged Best Actress honors at the 2013 British Academy Film Awards, but Jennifer found a winner (color) in this gem-laden baby pink Dior Haute Couture. Lawrence almost didn't show to the 2013 SAG Awards thanks (or rather, no thanks) to a bout with pneumonia, so you can imagine the gasps of approval from the MTV Style frontlines when she not only showed up but totally turned it out in navy, strapless Dior Haute Couture with a bold red lip and flawless side-swept waves. AND won for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role. Preach.
