Despite the tumultuous relationship-testing events of late, we here at MTV Style have the utmost faith in America's wonder couple-behbehs: Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber. Though not photographed together AT the 2011 EMA last night in Belfast, they were seen holding hands en route to a dinner after the big event for which Sel played host. Biebs let his girl shine on her own on her big day, as the duo played up their divergent personal styles more rather than going H.A.M. with the matchy-poo-ness à la black on black on black at the 2011 VMAs. Both performers in their own right, Selena and Justin both took to the stage during the award show, each clad in signature personal steeze.

As is customary, nay expected of Miss Gomez, girl was decked out in sequins to the eyeballs. Sel wore the long-sleeved shimmering purple number, in all its hot pants glory, with a pair of deliciously suede black knee-high boots and her hair in a soft half-up-half-down 'do—a kind of Nancy Sinatra meets glam-rock look that we're totally loving. The Biebs, on the other hand, went way futuristic with bold white details, hard lines, and more of that leather badassery we're seeing him wield lately. Hardly a stationary performer, Bieber's performance ensemble was optimized for movement with easy fit separates like black jeans, sneakers, and this seemingly Keith Haring-inspired jacket.

Sigh. Isn't she LOVELY? If you had any doubt in your mind that Selena Gomez wasn't an absolute dynamo, look no further than the incredible hosting job that the double-threat positively NAILED at the 2011 EMA in Belfast. She stunned on the "pink carpet" in a white, feather-filigree, Marchesa confection and flitted effortlessly between a retro '70s backless, red sequined onesie to high-waisted sailor shorts and a pique polo to drive a golf ball into the crowd, shimmied into a purple romper, set fire to the stage in a blaze of pyro and a printed maxi skirt and. So. Much. More.

Dizzying really. Let's gallivant through all NINE ensembles and count the very many ways in which Justin Bieber is a SUPER lucky dude...

It's SNOOKI in IRELAND, y'all! She's just chillin' on the pink carpet at the 2011 EMA with NEW HAIRRRR, ca-ching bling, and all kinds of snazzy bedazzling while, most likely, waiting for her mega-tanned, juiced-up, leprechaun meatball prince to carry her away to a (chilly) Irish beach. All we have to say is, you can take the girl outta Jersey, but you can't take the Jersey Shore outta the girl. Snooks was all about a super-sliiiim fitting look to show off her bodacious bod and perma-tan, but that's not just what captured our attention. It was this new, CHIC, side-swept hairDO and inverted, intricate mani. What exactly IS painted on her nails?

Lady Gaga poses backstage with her awards for Best Video, Best Song, Best Female, and Biggest Fans during the 2011 MTV EMA on Nov. 6, 2011, in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Silvery space-age scales, maroon doilies, a giant accordion-style coffee filter, cylindrical face-covering hats, and undulating kale. THIS is what makes an awards appearance by Lady Gaga so special. SHE NEVER DISAPPOINTS! And her presence at this year's MTV Europe Music Awards (aka EMA) as both a performer and nominee (and multiple awards winner) was also another WIN for the Haus of Gaga style cannon. Mother Monster took home four awards, including—her personal fave—the Biggest Fans award. She was also, in our humble opinion, the best style slayer of the night, and her various looks all seemed to follow a similar theme, one we'd like to call FUTURISTIC ALIEN WARRIOR PRINCESS. With ALL outfits by Paco Rabanne, hats by the GENIUS Philip Treacy, with squadrons of dancers wearing Void Of Course (which you may remember from the dildo shoe incident of yore [THANK YOU, NICOLA FORMICHETTI FOR THE CREDITS!]), and that body-con, to-the-floor, silver scaled gown above topped with a multilayered side-pony and a gaggle of matching trophies? Well that's just the beginning, folks.

Celebrated shoe designer Christian Louboutin hosted a cocktail party at Barney's New York that attracted all manner of well-heeled ladies (and gents in ladies' heels, but we'll get to that in a sec) ready to show off their finest footsies. Along with the perennially black-clad dynamic duo that is Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Blake Lively blasted the black carpet with her brand of insouciant sunshine, and The Blonds jazzed it out in tuxedo revelry. They were all rocking Loubs, too—some even of the animal-themed variety, specifically LION PAWS.

Hailee Steinfeld, Elle Fanning, and Kate Bosworth at the Chanel Boutique in Los Angeles, California.

Every now and then, I like to dream about getting a phone call from my estranged Uncle Karl, who tells me that I'm invited to one of his Chanel boutiques where I get to, as he puts it, "Take whatever you want, darling. You need zee dresses, and zee shooooes, and zee CLUTCHES. Lots and lots of zees clutches!" Then I wake up to my cat sweater wardrobe and cotton tote bag life and sigh. My fash fantasy may be ridiculous and totally unreachable, but I refuse to throw eye daggers at the ladies who get to live zee real Chanel fantasy—young celebs like Hailee Steinfeld, Elle Fanning, and Kate Bosworth, who were some of the lucky few invited to an "intimate dinner" at the Chanel boutique in Los Angeles (still waiting for my invite). Not only were they kitted-out in the loveliest of interlocking C-adorned frocks, they carried the finest of shiny clutches to drool over the next time I take a daydream break at my desk.

It has to be anxiety-inducing for actresses to hit multiple red carpet events while always trying to stand out and also not duplicate themselves style-wise over and over again. As we all know, it's a three-ring circus on the press line and every conceivable fashion trick has seemingly been tried. You'd think that a black dress or gown would be a no-no—too boring or done a million times—but not so when it's done just right. We were stunned by two such noirish looks recently courtesy of Carey Mulligan and Camilla Belle. Both ladies are typically style savvy and tipped-out to the HILT in the latest labels, but rarely have they revved it up va-va-va-VOOM style (well, Camilla maybe more than Carey) and commanded attention from head to toe. Looks like the secret is all about channeling your inner (and outer) VAMP.

Chloë Moretz and Hailee Steinfeld at "Variety'''s Power Of Youth event in Hollywood.

Young Hollywood knows exactly how to dress for the red carpet these days—especially with the help of stylists who are able to snag the latest looks from the runways. However, sometimes the youngest of these soon-to-be leading ladies end up looking a little too stylee-styled and wayyyyy older than their early teens. (We're talking red carpet disasters involving muumuu-ish gowns, ridiculous heels, or bouffant hairdos that look more ruh-roh than retro, especially on a 15-year-old.) Two gals who seem to be getting it right, though, are Chloë Moretz and Hailee Steinfeld. Both rising screen stars have started making names for themselves within fashion circles, with Chloë rocking the pages of Harper's Bazaar and Hailee becoming the (sad) face of Miu Miu. Both actresses were honored at Variety's Power of Youth event—which celebrates young stars who dedicate themselves to humanitarian causes (nice one, ladies!)—and each one looked AH-MAZE in, get this, grown-up looks from both the runway and older lady brands. How did they pull it off?

Drake arrives to celebrate his birthday in a sadface blouse at Tao on Oct. 22, 2011, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Photo: WireImage

Happy Birthday, Drake! You are 25 today. And super talented in many aspects. You are an actor! A recording artist! A proud Canadian! Nothing gives us more joy than when you and Nicki Minaj pretend to be married and desperately in love in that way that none of us will be surprised when you get secret-hitched next year but don't tell any of us until four years from now! We adore it all. There's really just one thing that even remotely rubs us the wrong way, not like, painful ointment-requiring chafing but just a wee, tiny, nagging rawness around the areolae that has to do with that *points* rather surprising garment draped over your arms and torso. Drake, pal, what's with the shirt?

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