Besides a horde of pubescent boys wielding lightsabers (and our own, non-lightsaber wielding senior editor) descending upon San Diego for Comic-Con, the city also played host to basically everyone who has ever mattered ever. (Not really. Jared Leto wasn't there. But a whole heap of our fashion faves were.) Though the Con is more for dressing WAY up as Batman or letting your casual flag fly, a couple of our leading ladies took the time to demonstrate that being a geek doesn't mean you aren't chic well-dressed in killer heels. Check out our best-dressed list for Comic-Con below—and if, like us, you are craving a Kristen Stewart fix with shaky hands and pasty skin, we cover her totally cool (and affordable!) Comic-Con outfit here.

Justin Bieber at the 2011 ESPY Awards in Los Angeles, California, on July 13, 2011.

If there's one thing Justin Bieber knows how to do, it's how to cater to EVERY DEMOGRAPHIC of women in existence. Last night, at the ESPY Awards show, he channeled Lower East Side gothic nightclub chic for the red carpet but when he hit the stage, his NASCAR-inspired jumpsuit looked straight out of Talladega Nights.

When we see Justin Bieber in this race car getup, we imagine him suddenly saying phrases like, "UHHH-MERRCAA" and "GET 'ER DONE." But we kind of enjoy his hat tip to our country's redder states—mostly because the "sponsors" glued to his chest are a peace sign, the entire country of Canada, and, um, himself? THAT'S HIS OWN "SOMEDAY" PERFUME LOGO ON THERE, GUYS. So smart. Soooooo smart. Also, we love that he didn't leave ALL of his Bieberness behind—he's still sporting some glittery kicks.

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge at the 2011 BAFTA Brits To Watch Event in Los Angeles, California, on July 9, 2011.

The BAFTAs, which stands for the British Academy of Film and Television Awards, may have been held in February but their "Brits to Watch Award" event, hosted by none other than Prince William and Kate Middleton during their whirlwind California tour, remind us that the folks from across the pond can hold it down on the red carpet against Hollywood's most sparkly ladies.

Dressed like a goddess in her cinch-waisted Alexander McQueen (who does soft and gentle as well as he does brusque and angular, and is almost the de facto designer for the duchess), Kate embodied royalty the same way that Princess Grace once did. Word on the street is that her neutral shoes are Jimmy Choos, which is an applause-worthy choice. Hollywood starlets could do black or even shimmery with this dress, but Kate’s pale turn is appropriately regal.

At first glance, Blake Lively, provided lively (erm) competition in the queenly realm (see what we did there?) but upon really studying her Marchesa gown, it’s clear she went for a totally different vibe. Sure, there is a femininity and composure to her swooped dress, but the one shoulder is subtly sensual. The draped trail and gauzy layer provide a drama that may not be fit for a queen...but definitely looks gorgeous on the red carpet.

Though maybe not appropriate for a visit to Buckingham Palace, Jennifer Lopez’s belly-baring dress reminds us that ladies do indeed run the world. The dress comes from the same collection as the green Pucci Beyoncé rocked with combat boots in her "Run The World (Girls)" music video. This full-length gown opts for cutouts that reveal glimpses of Jennifer Lopez’s legendary (and still bangin’) bod and one ornately sequined sleeve. J. Lo is still sexy without being over the top.

For some, just deciding "what to wear" is too simple. They go above and beyond just agonizing over the fit of a dress, the hue of a nail polish, or the balance of a silhouette. Instead, a bold brave few of fashion-masochists take on, even revel in, the insane undertaking of MULTIPLE wardrobe changes for a one-night affair (to which we at MTV Style say, "AMEN! And more power to ya!" as we watch from the sidelines). At this year's MuchMusic Video Awards, two such ladies went head-to-head in a most unlikely match-up: co-host and burgeoning style star Selena Gomez versus musical act and reigning fashion icon Lady Gaga. Who do you think brought it the most?

ON THE CARPET

Arriving at the awards, Selena wore a nude backless Burberry Prorsum dress with tiered ruffles and a pair of royal purple satin peep-toe Zanottis. Backstage, after accepting two awards, Lady Gaga wore a vintage Versace cobalt and black blazer and Technicolor graphic leggings (in keeping with her oath to wear only the designer's threads for the next two months) with gold studded platform booties. Who took the crown on this round?

So basically errrerybody (from Courtney Love to Liza Minnelli to James Franco) came out for last night's annual amfAR Inspiration Gala, which is a stylish shindig/fashion show thrown every year to raise money for AIDS research, which is a good thing. But a great thing includes our FAVE off-runway looks presented by our girls Ke$ha, Olivia Palermo, and Jennifer Hudson.

When Ke$ha walked the red carpet, we weren't sure which shocked us more—the oddly adult frontless Abed Mahfouz black gown, the bright blue hue weaved into her side pony, OR her silver hand cage/bracelet hybrid thang, which engulfed her entire left hand. So we called it a draw and decided the most shocking thing was how solid the whole ensemble looked together. Ke$ha has been known to look like a child's finger painting before, but her streak is pulled off with finesse and an odd amount of refinery. (Is she finally an "old blue hair"?)

The CFDA Awards, hosted by the Council of Fashion Designers in America (hence the name CFDA), is appropriately dubbed the Oscars of fashion. Of course, the Council only recognizes American designers, but that is totally great with us because it reminds us that Marc Jacobs, Diane von Furstenburg and Vera Wang all claim this landspace as their own. The ceremony, a rather small affair that is about as easy to get invited to as the Royal Wedding, is the time when American designers get to walk with their current "muses." Past award winners featured Iman (as an icon), Michelle Obama (as a special tribute) and Rodarte (best womenswear).

The real Oscars are for beauty and classic-ness, but the CFDA's prove that a celeb has the fashion chutzpah to own the red carpet. And, of course, there was Lady Gaga, who is now an official CFDA Fashion Icon.

Love her, hate her, or shut off each time she is mentioned (which in all fairness, is quite a lot), her CFDA nod firmly cemented her status as a real game-changer, not just a punk kid in wacky boots. We love that she brought her vamped out sister Natali as her red carpet date. The piercing eyes and Italian fierceness is clearly genetic—though definitely NOT genetic was Gaga's blunt cut aqua bob, which appeared front and center. However, we aren't massive fans of her unwieldy and dragging train, which was reportedly such a hassle she couldn't make it into the press room for interviews. Yet, in true Gaga-watching form, we wrestle with conflicting emotions on her acceptance getup: She ditched the train and then turned around to moon the industry—Anna Wintour and Grace Coddington included. Maybe not the most classic and respectful of moves, but hey, even as a game-changer, she still is a punk kid in wacky boots. But she wasn't the only one who kept the paps a-snappin'.

1:56 pm - Hey guys, so I'm typing this from the cramped corners of our satellite MTV Style HQ on the Universal Lot and I'm flanked by 1 double espresso, 1 20 oz iced coffee and, of course, a can of Coke Zero. In short, I'm AMPED to get this live blog cracking. Or having a MASSIVE coronary. Which is fine (such are the sacrifices I'm willing to make for y'all), as long as I get to see R. Pattz FIRST. Oh, and for more behind-the-scenes movie award gossip check out our pals at Hollywood Crush who are live blogging their faces off.

2:04 pm - Oh, and in case you're wondering, I'm wearing Norma Kamali. And Jeffrey Campbell nude suede Litas. I can't do a non-platform for the THREE HOURS I'll be perched alongside Christian Siriano. Hmm... three hours? I should probably quit guzzling all this garbage what with caffeine being a diuretic...

4:17 pm - BRB. Gotta slather on sunblock and go golf cart it over to interview Lupe Fiasco.

6:29 pm - Zomg guys! Christian's heeeeeeere! We're posted up in the scorching heat. The papps are bananas.

6:31 pm - Red carpet to commence shortly. I wonder who's gonna be first. P.S.: Christian's wearing very glamorous patent leather shoes.

6:35 pm - Correction! Painted shoes! Shiny, aaaaand Dior.

6:36 pm - Brad Walsh tells us his double-breasted raw silk blazer is from his women's collection.

6:37 pm - Oooooh, the Twilight cast is trickling in!

We're mere hours away from the 2011 Movie Awards and rehearsals are in full swing prepping for the Big Night. We were lucky enough to throw our meager elbows into the mix to grab some face time with Trey Songz, who will be performing with Lupe Fiasco and performing their joint collab "Out of My Head" for the first time together on television, and um, yeah, he's totally a bona fide Hot Dude. Like, for sure. While he wouldn't dish on exactly what ensemble he'll wear tomorrow night (he and his stylist Talia have pulled several plausible dapper looks), he does assure us he'll be showing off his best with a likely outfit change between the show and the performance, with maybe an added look thrown in expressly for the red carpet. Hardly a shocker knowing what flair Trigga typically brings. Seeeeeriously.

Solange Knowles, Cassie, and Selita Ebanks at the Carol's Daughter Spokesbeauty & Monoi Repairing Collection Launch at Sephora in New York on May 24.

We stopped by Sephora last night to celebrate the announcement of the new Carol's Daughter spokesbeauties (yep, that's what they're ACTUALLY called) Solange, Cassie, and Selita Ebanks. And first off, whoa. These ladies are so unbelievably FLAWLESS up close, it's insulting to the rest of us who have to walk around planet Earth not being any of them. Singer (and Beyoncé's little sis) Solange oozed confidence with her fresh face and dapper vintage pale yellow suit. Model/Kanye West music video superstar Selita Ebanks' gravity-defying cheek bones practically left us speechless and her "exotic Barbie" (her words, not ours) look was cute to boot. Singer Cassie KILLED IT with dramatic eye makeup, a perfect pomp, and body-hugging nude dress, so we caught up with all three to ransack their beauty secrets...

We already know that "Whatever happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas," but considering all the uh-mazing trends that took over the Billboard Music Awards red carpet, we simply REFUSE to forget the SHEER BEAUTY of some of these outfits! Last night the ladies (and the Biebs!) were LOVING midriff-baring cutouts, tons of fabulous sequins and glitter, and long sleeves paired with short dresses. Check all of our favorite looks below. (Psst! What happened outside of the MGM Grand Arena was just the beginning! Peep the hot performance outfits that Beyoncé, Rihanna, Britney Spears, and Nicki Minaj donned onstage during the show.)

CUTOUTS

The star of the red carpet last night was midriff! These ladies showed off their toned tummies with angular cut out dresses and body-hugging jumpsuits. First off, um HELLO SELENA GOMEZ. She looks elegant, beautiful, and straight-up HOT in her Dolce&Gabbana gown. (Way to go, Justin Bieber! You got that shiz in the BAG.) Nicki Minaj opted for a sheer, pastel blue Mark Fast catsuit paired with cutout white platforms and Barbie pink (obvs) hair. Fergie KILLED IT in a black leather paneled Hervé Léger by Max Azria Atelier dress, sky-high pumps, and Alexander McQueen clutch. Ke$ha was surprisingly elegant in a grayish-blue Jad Ghandour gown and SOUND THE ALARMS PEOPLE because she managed to incorporate all three of our red carpet trends: cut outs, glitter, AND long sleeves with a short (well, sort of. Just go with it.) dress.

GLITTER AND SEQUINS

If there's one time when wearing full-out sequins and glitter in the daytime ISN'T super duper tacky, it's at huge awards shows like this one (unless, of course, you're Ke$ha). Michelle Williams rocked a three-quarter sleeve sequin frock with a layered ribbon illusion skirt. We LOVE her bright red accent clutch and cutout boots. Justin Bieber proves that glitter isn't just for the ladies in his sparkling gold DSQUARED2 tuxedo jacket paired with a skinny tie, black pants, and patent leather high-tops. Also: His slightly disheveled hair is REALLY doing it for us. Taylor Swift goes glam in a strapless, floor-length Elie Saab pink and gold sequin gown finished with retro waves and a pop of red lipstick.

SHORT DRESSES, LONG SLEEVES

These leggy ladies decided to give their gams full attention at the BBMAs! Kylie Minogue chose a short see-through lace Alexander McQueen dress with peep-toe Christian Louboutin booties, while keeping the arm length demure. Keri Hilson shined in a bright yellow chiffon Rachel Roy dress and Christian Louboutin Balota sandals. We are obsessed with her teal belt and hot pink nails! This girl is FEARLESS when it comes to color! Beyoncé kept it simple and chic in a long-sleeved Lanvin dress and snakeskin printed Christian Louboutin pumps.

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