mtv Style is moving! come with us to mtv news »

In the past year alone, Jennifer Lawrence won an Oscar, starred in the second installment of the blockbuster Hunger Games series, and became everyone's favorite imaginary BFF. She's refreshingly candid, totally poised, and, thanks to a little help from her stylist, Rachel Zoe, one of the most style-savvy ladies in the game. "I really would not call myself a fashion icon," she told E!. "I would call myself somebody who gets dressed by professionals. [It's like], 'Dance, monkey, dance' right on the red carpet.' I would call me more of a monkey." LOL, girl, you so humble.

Even though she hasn't quite nailed down a signature look yet (unless, of course, you count her racks and racks of Dior as a face of the brand), J. Law continues to kill it with risk-taking gowns, two-pieces, and a variety of silhouettes. In honor of her MAY-JAH year in both film and fashion, we've rounded up our top 10 favorite J. Law style moments of 2013.

JANUARY 11

She doesn't often do graphic prints, but when she does, she does them with really cool matching shoes. In January, back when most of us were reluctantly pulling on parkas and sweater tights, Jennifer showed up at the 2013 AFI Awards in BARE LEGS and a colorful, figure-flattering sheath dress with metallic tweed stripes by Prabal Gurung. Her coordinating cap-toe pumps, which boasted a mirrored heel, mesh straps, and neon-pink piping, came from Gurung's line with Casadei. Sidebar: Remember when her hair was SO LONG?

With the end of the year nigh, we've been reviewing 2013's most stylish stars. We rounded up the musical dudes and ladies whose aesthetic had you talking, we looked at how Miley Cyrus totally nailed the '90s, and we realized that this was totally the year of the designer track.

We now turn our attention to the stars of our very own MTV shows. When they're not crowding our TVs with their beautiful faces, they're stunning on red carpets, sitting front row at Fashion Week, and heading their own fashion empires. MTV stars are a busy bunch, y'all. *hair flip* Let's see what some of their biggest fashion moments were this year!

HOLLAND RODEN

It's no secret that we LOVE Holland Roden. Sure, we liked her before April, but after watching her slay as MTV.com's Movie Awards Red Carpet correspondent, we fell even harder. Look at the plunging neckline on her black DKNY dress! While her Teen Wolf wardrobe errs on the preppy side, IRL Holland dabbles in menswear-inspired looks in feminine patterns and colors. She also sat front row at five New York Fashion Week shows, so we expect her 2014 style to be as edgy as ever.

The intersection and overlap of music and fashion is nothing new. In fact, it's the very foundation on which MTV Style exists (without it, I'm pretty sure we would implode on ourselves in a flurry of glitter, which would be pretty...but very, very sad *whimpers*). It's been an exciting year for our favorite cultural cross section, with each side informing the other countless times, from designers tapping musicians for campaigns to musicians revealing their own designs. But the phenomenon we enjoyed the MOST this year? The designer track. That is, a track inspired by a specific designer or label, usually featuring the fashion house's name in the hook.

Sure, we've seen these in previous years—Kreayshawn's "Gucci Gucci" and Soulja Boy Tell 'Em's "Louis Vuitton" in 2011, Kanye West's "Christian Dior Denim Flow" in 2010, Jennifer Lopez's "Louboutins" in 2009, and so on—but the sheer volume of songs dedicated to fashion darlings in a year amplified by the earworm "and we'll never be roooooyaaaaals" is SUPER interesting and worth a closer look.

It was a big year for short hair. Models, singers, and actresses all made drastic chops to their 'dos, or at least toyed with the idea. In early 2013, Karlie Kloss' bob was named the haircut of 2012, but this year, stylish women dared to go even shorter. Here are some contenders for the Best Haircut award, though I'm not sure what the prize is. Sorry, ladies.

JENNIFER LAWRENCE

Considering her most popular role has its own signature braid, Jennifer Lawrence's pixie cut was totally unexpected. More expected? How good she looks with a new length. J.Law had long hair throughout awards season, which she wore up, down, and to the side to collect her multiple awards for her role in Silver Linings Playbook.

In April, she chopped her locks off into a lob (long bob, FYI), and in November, she went full platinum pixie. Her Hunger Games: Catching Fire red carpet style has been taking advantage of her hair's bold new ~edge~, and we can't wait to see how she styles her 'do for each award show at the top of 2014.

If we've learned anything about Miley Cyrus this year, it's that she probably owns more high-cut bikini bottoms than anyone in the free world. We've also learned that if it weren't for New York Fashion Week, there's a chance she could have been single-handedly credited with reviving the sartorial styles of the 1990s. And even though crop tops first started cropping up (heh) on runways back in October 2012, Miley was definitely one of the trend's earliest AND most enthusiastic supporters (like that time she wore four in 24 hours this summer). You might even say that her newfound personal style was, and is, miles (heh) ahead of the curve.

Fashion in the '90s was primarily characterized by a kind of laid-back minimalism. (Not pantsless minimalism, per se—but maybe that's Miley's modern twist?) Leaving the neon spandex, leg warmers, and bulky shoulder pads of the '80s behind, the following decade was heavily influenced by Seattle's grunge-rock scene (tartan flannel, overalls, Doc Martens) and hip-hop streetwear (labels, a ton of flashy bling). Comfort was key, but even more important was the ability to have your style convey a sense of rebellion and anti-establishment. And that's exactly what Cyrus claims to stand for. "It's almost punk rock to like me because it's not the right thing to do," she told Cosmopolitan. "Like, society wants to shut me down."

So, to celebrate Miley's BIGGEST and most stylish year to date (sorry, Hannah Montana fans), we've laid out the many ways that her evolving look has paid tribute to the decade in which she was born. In the words of 2 Unlimited, frozen in time by Jock Jams and Space Jam, "Y'all ready for this?" (DUN NUH NUH!)

Selfies were errywhere this year. Oxford Dictionaries named selfie the word of 2013, which, based on celebrity Instagram accounts, makes total sense. Celebs love taking selfies and we, as bloggers and breathing humans, love looking at said selfies. We've come to rely on them to tell us what our faves are wearing, where they are, and who they're hanging with. It isn't until you look through every Instagram of Rihanna's from the past year that you truly appreciate just how much the badgal loves sharing her face/her new hair color/her products with the rest of the world. But Ri's not the only one doing it. We've rounded up our favorite selfies from the past year so you can peep 'em and refer back when taking GPOYs of your own. Enjoy!

NICKI MINAJ: MOST SELFIES NOT FOCUSED ON HER FACE

For most people, selfies are all about the face. Obviously, Nicki Minaj is not like most people. Her selfies tend to draw attention to the two assets that sit below eye level and could easily stay out of frame. Nicki got bolder about baring as the year went on. While she began 2013 with some heavy cleavage, by the end she was straight-up giving us full-frontal pasties. Her Halloween costume, in case you couldn't tell, was a police officer. It's been a while since we've gotten any Instagrams from her Minajesty, so we're hoping she's planning to make up for lost time in 2014.

Is it just us, or did 2013 fly by? Like, it feels as though we watched the ball drop last weekend. That obviously can't be, though, because our fave ladies wouldn't have been able to wear all these looks in the span of four days. Well, maybe Lady Gaga could, but it'd be hard, even for her.

Based on the stories y'all clicked on, tweeted about, and shared on Facebook, we've rounded up 10 of the most stylish ladies from this year. Now we need your help in deciding who should be crowned best dressed. Will Lady Gaga continue her reign for the second year in a row, or will her throne be usurped by someone else? It's up to you, so be sure to vote for your fave lady below. And act fast because the poll closes after Wednesday, December 18th!

LADY GAGA

After cancelling the remaining stops on her Born This Way Ball tour at the beginning of the year, Lady Gaga laid low and seemingly prepared a slew of outfits for her big return. She gave us her Botticelli-babe bikini, a glam-goth Prabal Gurung gown, and a technologically advanced dress that blew bubbles on its own.

When a guy can carve a niche for himself as a paragon of style, it's a truly impressive feat. I mean, HULLO, dudes do not have the same range of options as ladies do. It's a lot harder to keep your look fresh and fashion-forward without peplum skirts and crop tops and a variety of heels. But there is an elite tier of dudes who have done exactly that in 2013.

We pay attention to the stories you're reading, tweeting, and posting on Facebook. Based on all that, we've put together a list of your 10 favorite stylish studs from the past 365 days. Now we need your help to crown the winner. One Direction won as a group last year, but only Harry and Zayn are nominated this time around. Will one of them come out on top, or will they split the 1D vote, leaving room for a new champion? It's up to you, so be sure to vote for your fave dude below. And act quickly because the poll closes after Wednesday, December 18th!

HARRY STYLES

Harry Styles is a fashion icon. But you don’t have to take our word for it—all of Europe says so. (Pretty much.) The youngest member of One Direction beat out ~actual~ models for the title of British Style Icon at this year’s British Fashion Awards AND took home the award for Best Look at the MTV EMA. The dude wears quirky, printed button-ups and black skinny jeans like nobody’s business, and somehow manages to make bed head appropriate for every situation.

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