Juliet Simms, the 24-year-old lead singer of Automatic Loveletter, showed off some amazing, sometimes-skimpy-but-always-stylish outfits on the Warped Tour last summer, so we were thrilled when she dropped by MTV Style to talk fashion. Juliet told us that the musicians of the '60s, '70s, and '80s are the influence behind the loose-fitting, hippie outfits she rocks onstage. She also opened up about her personal style, the difference between looking good and looking "skanky," the process behind putting together her performance outfits, and her fashion essentials. Watch the videos below to hear Juliet Simms talk more about style.



ON HER PERSONAL STYLE:
"I try to pull from male rock stars from the '60s, '70s, and '80s, such as Jim Morrison, Robert Plant, or David Bowie or Axl Rose, Steven Tyler. That’s like some of my favorite music, and those records are what I grew up with my entire life. So my style essentially is just rocker, male meets female. I also try to keep it not slutty or skanky."



ON PICKING HER PERFORMANCE WEAR:
"I try to put together different outfits every night. So I bring essentials like my wet pants, faux jeans, laces, and fishnets, jewelry … whatever I feel is right at the moment. I can't leave without my boots, whether it’s my platform booties or my cowboy boots."

Glamour magazine's Annual Women of the Year Awards were held last night honor 24 remarkable women — from entertainers like Cher (who scooped up the Lifetime Achievement Award), to humanitarians like Queen Rania of Jordan. What we discovered? Not only do these women have amazing accomplishments, they also have amazing wardrobes. Here are our favorite looks.

BEST DRESSED: FERGIE
Fergie is on fire with this red dress! The Black Eyed Peas singer and shoe designer gave a tearful acceptance speech for her award, and wore a floor-length, one shoulder Zac Posen gown and matching pumps. She radiated true glamor, and for that she's best dressed.

BEST LIP LOOK: JANELLE MONAE
The evening's performer, Janelle Monae, rocked her signature cape and pompadour, but she was also giving us something new—hot pink lips that REALLY popped against her all-black ensemble.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BEST ACCESSORIES: CHER
The consensus was that Cher, who took home the final award of the evening (the Lifetime Achievement Award), inspired the audience with her acceptance speech. For us, though, the "ROCK" pin that she wore on a leather biker jacket made a statement of it's own.

BEST SHOES: ESTELLE
Estelle sparkled (literally) in black, glittery shoes, which she paired with a one-shoulder gown and an equally shimmery clutch.

BEST HAIR (UP): KELLY OSBOURNE
Presenter Kelly Osbourne (master of hair transformations) took a cue from Janelle Monae by pinning her hair up into a chignon/pompadour that looked retro-cute with her brow-skimming bangs.

BEST HAIR (DOWN): ALEXA RAY JOEL
Singer/songwriter Alexa Ray Joel's brunette strands always look great — shiny, thick, healthy. But, the added curl and side-pullover gave them added oomph.

BEST EYELASHES: JANET JACKSON
Janet Jackson teamed up with Hilary Swank to present an award to fashion designer Donatella Versace. The trio looked great on stage, but all we could focus on were Janet's long, luscious lashes. Swoon!

BEST OLD HOLLYWOOD GLAM LOOK: KATE HUDSON
Kate Hudson presented the award to Fergie wearing a shimmering champagne Lanvin gown with metallic gold leather pumps. Her retro waves swept over one shoulder and classic red lips totally transported us to a forties jazz club.

Lady Gaga, one of our favorite-in-the-whole-wide-world divas, won big at EMA on Sunday in Madrid, Spain. And while we missed her so much on the purple carpet because she wasn't able to attend in person, she did an ah-freaking-mazing job accepting her three EMA awards live onstage during her Monster Ball tour stop in Budapest, Hungary! "I wish so much that I could be there," she said during her Best Song acceptance speech, wearing one of her signature tour outfits — a clear plastic dress with nipple stickers underneath. Later, she changed into her purple big-shoulder jacket and sparkly purple sunglasses, another tour outfit, for her Best Pop award. "I love you so much, thank you for all your support, this means so much to me." Don't you think awards are the hottest accessories?! Check out all of her speeches — and her awesome fan shout-outs!!! — below.

Last week, EMA host Eva Longoria Parker hinted that she was going to wear at least eight outfits to the EMA last night in Madrid, Spain. Well, she didn't wear eight — she wore TEN! From little dresses to long gowns, Eva Longoria Parker hosted the event in outfits that showed off her love for fashion. Here, we round up all 10 of Eva's leggy looks.

1. BLACK MINI BY GEORGES HOBEIKA
Eva debuted her first look of the night on the red blue carpet wearing a mini, mini, mini dress by Georges Hobeika and black pumps. The look was so fierce in itself, that her beauty matched with smokey eyes and nude lips.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2. ROYAL IN PURPLE
Later, Eva hit the stage in a mini purple dress with defined shoulders, which also involved a satin sash-like collar. We like how she changed her updo from the red carpet and transformed it into a loose ponytail.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

3. BLACK AND FEATHERY MARCHESA
This look is by one of our favorite red-carpet designers, Marchesa. The dress, which featured a feather-like skirt, looked great on Eva, and we love how she wore side-swept bangs to match the drama of the look. Although, with its short hemline and deep V-neck, there wasn't much to it at all.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4. FUNKY, FRAYED, AND BEIGE IN CAMILLA AND MARC
This outfit is a little more casual compared to her others, which balances out the dramatic looks from before. The beige color is one of the most popular colors divas love right now, and the hemline is layered and frayed. It's also great how she matched her casual look with casual, wavy hair.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

5. RUFFLES AND LEGS IN A GIANFRANCO FERRE LOOK
This look was designed by the duo behind Gianfranco Ferre, Tommaso Aquilano and Roberto Rimondi, and it made Eva Longoria Parker look super chic. We love the ruffles up top, and down below ... well, there's not much, but the cut of this outfit made her look great!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

6. LACE-UP BROWN EMILIO PUCCI GOWN
This look was our absolute favorite! We love the rich chocolate color of this gown, designed by Peter Dundas of Emilio Pucci, and how it complements her olive skin tone perfectly. The lace-up front is sexy and revealing, but not over-the-top or overtly flashy. The train along the back adds to the glamor, and it's flatters her wonderfully.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

7. LITTLE RED DRESS
This little red dress is one of Eva's simpler looks. We love how she can take something that isn't frilly or overly designed and make it look amazing.

8. NOT THE MEAT DRESS
This is nothing compared to Lady Gaga's meat dress. Nice try, though.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

9. PATTERNS AND PRINTS BY EMILIO PUCCI
This gown, with its side cut-outs, graphic design, and muted palette is another great look by Emilio Pucci, and she completed the sleek look of the dress with slick-straight hair. But considering how much she loves showing off her legs, we're surprised she covered them up with this dress!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

10. A FINAL LEGGY LOOK BY VIKTOR & ROLF
Eva Longoria loved showing off lots of leg! With this outfit, designed by Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren of Viktor & Rolf, she started out with a floor-length skirt until Katy Perry snagged it off and revealed a one-piece bodysuit!

At the 2010 EMA in Madrid, Spain last night, some stars went for full-on glam, like Rihanna in her statement-making gown. Others, like the band members of 30 Seconds to Mars, kept it street in sneaks and denim (but still classy ... and HOT). Here are the top eight looks — from both ends of the spectrum.

1. RIHANNA
Rihanna performed "Only Girl (in the World)" in a flower-covered dress, combat boots and a princess crown. The whole look was very "Rihanna." Pre-show, however, she sparkled in a cream-colored, one-shoulder Marchesa gown from the label's spring 2011 collection with tons (and tons) of glorious ruffles that looked fantastic with her flaming red hair.

2. EVA LONGORIA PARKER
As the official host, Eva Longoria Parker wore many outfits during the 2010 EMA, including walking the red carpet in this stunning look — a short-short-REALLY-short baby dress with puff sleeves and a sheer V-neck by Georges Hobeika from the designer's spring 2010 couture collection. It really showed off her killer legs.

3. EMILY OSMENT
Eighteen-year-old singer/songwriter Emily Osment accessorized a body-conscious BCBG Max Azria dress with black platform pumps, a studded clutch and a hint of blue eye shadow. The mix was perfectly age-appropriate, bright, and fun, not to mention ... attainable!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

4. SHAKIRA
Every once in a while you find a dress that needs no pomp or circumstance. Such was the case with Shakira, who opened the show with British rapper Dizzee Rascal. For the red carpet, the Colombian singer teamed her gold and black shimmering dress with, well, not much. And she still looked gorgeous.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

5. 30 SECONDS TO MARS
When it comes to style, the 30 Seconds to Mars boys are a triple threat. Save for Shannon Leto's blue shoelaces, each band member interpreted a monochromatic, gray and black palette to their liking. The result? Cool and classy ... times three.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

6. KATY PERRY
Katy Perry lets her dresses talk for her, as was the case last night when she walked the red carpet in a statement-making (literally) beaded red dress with the words Admit One written on it. The dress is from designer Jeremy Scott's spring 2011 collection, and it was cute and fun, just like Katy. We do love her extra touch — a pair of blue Sergio Rossi slingbacks, since blue shoes are so hot right now.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

7. MILEY CYRUS
Miley Cyrus wore a tiered white dress with a black tie by D&G for her EMA arrival, which she paired with a stack of gold bracelets. The look itself was mature, covered up, and grown up, which is probably why we like it so much, considering she wore basically nothing during her performance.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

8. HAYLEY WILLIAMS OF PARAMORE
Goodbye, orange hair! Hayley Williams of Paramore showed up to the EMA with a new bright magenta hair color, and it looks great on her. Her makeup looked like she was going for alien/otherwordly inspiration, but that's just Hayley, and why we love her out-there style. As for the outfit, she wore a mix of sheer top, black pants, and knee-high lace-up combat boots. This combination wouldn't work on just anyone, but Hayley made it look great.

Just when we think we've got Ke$ha's look all figured out — torn shirts, fishnets, and massive amounts of glitter — she takes her style in a new direction ... darker! The first images of the singer on the set of her new 'We R Who We R' music video, off her upcoming album Cannibal, just dropped, and Ke$ha looks pretty insane/cool in these new behind-the-scenes photos. For the video, Ke$ha rocks a leotard embellished with glass, ripped leggings and platform boots, and she's dripping in chains. She's also trying a new beauty routine by putting a metal chain in her hair, wearing gray and black makeup, and getting a manicure with mini cross and gun charms on her fingernails. It's like she mixed Taylor Momsen's makeup with Rihanna's leotards and added some of Lady Gaga over-the-top ways. But with so much going on in this outrageous outfit, let's take a closer look.

Rawrrrr!!!! Khloe Kardashian and Ke$ha took their love of animal print to the extreme when both ladies recently wore a faux fur hat by SpiritHoods, a company specializing in hats that mimic your favorite furry friends. Khloe kept warm in New York this week in the 'Fox' style, which she paired with a black coat and over-the-knee boots, while Ke$ha rocked the 'Leopard' version during a performance in the Big Apple earlier this summer (both hats are available online for $129 each on SpiritHoods.com). The two fashionistas looked fab in the bold accessory, but we think Ke$ha won this style matchup. The rest of the singer's glittery, torn outfit matched the fun feeling of the hood, and let's remember this girl loves to say she's like an Animal all the time. But what do you think?

Willow Smith and Ellen DeGeneres on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' on Nov. 2.

Willow Smith stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday for her first-ever live performance. And she rocked it! How she is only 9 years old and doing this stuff we still don't know! Of course, the rising diva also wore a great outfit for her big moment that included a pink vest, black bubble skirt over sparkly bike shorts, calf-high black boots, and a single metallic glove on her right hand. As for her famous hair, which she fantastically whipped back and forth, it was twirled in an elaborate updo with a section of light pink on it. We thought she looked awesome, but what do you think?

Emma Watson in British 'Vogue,' December 2010.

Emma Watson opens up in the December issue of British Vogue about her epic pixie haircut that sent Harry Potter fans around the world into a tizzy. So, why did she do it? "I was contractually obliged not to cut my hair, not to tan. All the normal things girls do, I couldn’t," she told the magazine of her Harry Potter gig as Hermione Granger. "So when I got the chance to change my appearance, this [gesturing to her hair] is what I did.” Way to rebel to the most intense level, Emma! We're just happy to see she didn't tan to the orange Snooki/Jersey Shore extreme. Yet.

We love a good tutu. And we're fully convinced that tutu-wearing is a rising trend that only the bold and beautiful can pull off well. So far, we've seen tutus on Pixie Lott, Rihanna, and Katy Perry — all performers. But last night, actress Christina Ricci joined the trendsetting bunch when she attended the Library Lions Benefit in New York last night looking ballerina-inspired in a lovely Marchesa tutu design from the label's fall 2010 collection. While the tutu looked great on her, we thought the tights were a little too overwhelming for the delicate look. But it was a tutu nonetheless — so success!

+ Would wear a tutu like Christina Ricci?

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