Style has moved! come with us to mtv news »

As you may have heard from the tidal wave of Smiler screams sweeping the nation, Miley Cyrus has teamed up with the likes of us (MTV) for yet another memorable performance moment. (Do we really need to remind you of the last one we brought you?) The "Wrecking Ball" singer is taking the stage next week for a very special, very stripped-down Miley Cyrus: MTV Unplugged, and as we should all know by now, she could do and wear ANYTHING. I mean, look at this promotional photo! Fake hillbilly teeth, a short baby-pink wig, and silver star pasties? Who knows where this is going! In celebration of the Unplugged wardrobe to come, we're looking back at some of our favorite Miley performance looks from the past year. LEGGO!

Obviously OBVIOUSLY, we have to kick this off with her periwinkle blue Markus Lupfer cat-print ensemble from the 2013 American Music Awards. Paired with a lip-synching orange tabby backdrop and massive lucite accessories, this high-cut separates look was (and still is) internet gold.

Here are some things one might associate with the wild, wild American west: cowboys, lassos, saloons, Will Smith, 10-gallon hats, studded leather saddles, motorcycle jackets lined with mink, crocodile bombers, Angel Haze, etc. etc. Oh, oops! I wrote that wrong. What I meant to say was, "Here are some things designer Philipp Plein associates with the wild, wild west." According to his recent runway show, that is.

With a neon-lit, multi-level saloon serving as the backdrop, Plein presented his "Noir Cowboy"-themed menswear collection in Milan on Sunday—complete with a cap gun fight, a mechanical bull, and real bucking broncos. But despite the live-action gunplay between shirtless male models (#yeehaw), the most surprising aspect of the show was an unannounced guest performance by rapper Angel Haze.

Sparkles have been a longstanding New Year's Eve staple for, like, a bajillion years, so it's no wonder that Miley Cyrus kicked off 2014 in an entirely sequined outfit designed by The Blonds. Since it was roughly negative 100 degrees, she kept warm in a floor-length fur coat, also by The Blonds.

For most people, Christmas fashion remains the same every year. Something red, maybe something green, an ugly sweater if you can find one, and if you're having a bad hair day, a Santa hat. As we all well know, Mariah Carey is not like most people. As the Queen Of Christmas Style™ (dubbed by a combination of us and this press release), Mariah puts the rest of our holiday swag to shame. Since the release of "All I Want For Christmas Is You" in 1994, Mariah has been a fixture at Christmas concerts, tree lightings, and holiday parades across the United States. While Mimi could easily roll up to each performance and appearance in, like, jeans and a Santa hat, she doesn't. Obviously. 19 years' worth of Mariah Carey Christmas steez is a lot, so we pared it down to her best looks and eras, which are below. Turn on "All I Want For Christmas Is You," press repeat, and pay homage to the Queen of Christmas Style, Mariah Carey.

1994 - 2008: SIMPLE RED AND WHITE ERA

Mariah's first Christmas album, "Merry Christmas," which contained the holiday banger to end all holiday bangers ("All I Want For Christmas Is You"), was released in 1994. Her performance outfits in the following decade and a half were widely varied. In the mid-'90s, Mimi went unusually casual in a snowsuit and jeans and a t-shirt. In the early aughts, she swapped in pants for dresses: she wore tight gowns, taffeta-skirt dresses, and even a mod-inspired mini dress with knee-high go-go boots, all within a limited red and white palette.

Today, in the BEST NEWS EVER, Miley Cyrus revealed via Twitter that design duo The Blonds will be creating the wardrobe for her upcoming Bangerz tour. YAAS! Can you handle it? We can't. This is a match made in high-cut leotard heaven. The Blonds (David and Phillipe Blond, IRL) have long been lauded for their structured, innovative bodysuits—and going sans pants is basically Miley's M.O. these days. (See also: Jingle Ball, the AMAs, the EMA, etc. etc. x a million.)

Happy 33rd birthday, Christina Aguilera! You celebrated in the way most people only dream of celebrating: onstage with Lady Gaga in matching iridescent-gold chiffon outfits and blonder-than-blonde hair. While Lady Gaga's performance was expected, Christina joining for a Sweeney Sisters-esque duet was most certainly not.

Lady Gaga kicked off the performance in a lamé, billowy sleeved jumpsuit and a platinum 'do reminiscent of her "Paparazzi" days. Then, like a moth to a glittery flame, Xtina emerged in a matching high-slit dress.

The dazzling duo held hands triumphantly and canoodled before trying to out-riff each other. Though matching in metallic material and platinum hair, Christina stood apart from her disco sister with a curly, Donna Summer-inspired 'do.

The final touch (and confirmation that the duo are no longer feuding) was a champagne toast followed by smashing the glasses. Who cares if there's glass everywhere?? Xtina and Gaga are BFF!! Congrats on making up, you two! You could take that Dreamgirls act on the road and wear different lamé outfits every night!

Watch the gilded jumpsuit and dress in all their glory here!

If you're not familiar with the curtain skirt, that's probably because it only makes sense to wear one if you are a female pop star performing on a stage. Like, I'm pretty sure not even Miley Cyrus would wear one in public. As a matter of fact, I'd say the curtain skirt is definitely more of a costume piece than a functional garment, because IMHO, it isn't even an ~actual~ skirt—more like an unfinished peplum. The curtain skirt is usually worn with a bodysuit and can vary in length and coverage, as demonstrated by both Ariana Grande and Iggy Azalea this weekend at Wild Jam in San Jose, California.

Deck the halls with crop tops and high-cut leotards, y'all. Minnesota's Jingle Ball happened in St. Paul last night, and BOY, did things get festive. Now I like an ugly Christmas sweater just as much as the next person, but Ariana Grande and Miley Cyrus took holiday cheer to a whole new level with their uber-yuletide outfits. And, as you might expect, one of them was naughty and the other was nice. (Although we're sure Santa appreciates the sentiment, regardless.)

Don't worry, Selenators, Selena Gomez didn't actually cut her hair! It does kinda seem like she's toying with the idea, though, unless she's attempting to create a Sasha Fierce-esque onstage persona for herself. I mean, early in November, Flaunt magazine released those pictures of her with a blunt bob, and now, almost a month later, she's performing wearing a very similar wig. Or maybe the same one? IDK, maybe she "borrowed" it from set. We would be all for the drastic 'do (you know we love us some may-jah hair news), but we ALSO can't forget the follow-up video to her Flaunt spread, where short-haired Selly was searching for her longer-haired self.

Selena hit the stage in Dallas in a white bralet/hotpants combo similar to the outfits she's been wearing all tour, but her hair was noticeably, like, 10 inches shorter. We would've thought she cut her hair for real, but an hour earlier, her mane was its usual glamorous length.

ICYMI: Jay Z doesn't pop Molly, he rocks Tom Ford. Oh. You've heard his song "Tom Ford," and you already knew that? Well, apparently, Jay doesn't think we got the message. Or maybe he just loves Tom Ford THAT much. Or, even more likely, Mr. Carter realizes that his words are good enough to wear. Last night, Jay Z kicked off his Magna Carta World Tour in St. Paul, Minnesota and took to the stage in a custom, black and white jersey tee emblazoned with lyrical references to his standout hit, "Tom Ford." Hov repped the designer's name on the back of the shirt, along with Ford's birth year (1961) and the word "Molly" crossed out.

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