Oh hey, Miley's eyebrows. Welcome back. We thought we'd lost you there for a minute. PHEW. The return of Miley Cyrus' dark brows was the first thing that caught our eye when she took the stage to perform "Wrecking Ball" at tonight's American Music Awards. The SECOND thing we noticed, though, was that her outfit matched her HIGH-larious screen visual from head to ACTUAL toe. (Also, if matching is "happening," BRB I need to go change my socks.)

Lady Gaga swapped her purple Versace gown for a sparkly ensemble during her AMA performance of "Do What U Want" with R.Kelly. As the Marilyn Monroe to R.Kelly's JFK (yeah, R. Kelly played the president in this American-inspired performance because DUHHHH), Gaga began the performance in a sequined jacket, which she quickly removed to reveal a matching dress. Very ice skater chic: getting in the Winter Olympics mindset, eh, Gaga? ME TOO.

Does anyone know what vitamins One Direction takes? What magical concoction gives them the ability to host a 7-hour livestream for 1D Day yesterday and then roll up to the AMA Red Carpet looking fresh, coordinated, and as cute as ever? Because HEYYY, I WANT SOME.

For their arrival, the guys stuck to a black and grey palette, but in varying forms of dressiness: Harry had on a tuxedo jacket, while Niall had on a charcoal bomber jacket. Liam, as usual, had on an inexplicable trench coat. All five guys wore tight black jeans and, unusually, Harry's weren't ripped at the knees! These must be his formal jeans. Louis, as always, skipped socks because having smelly feet must be his ~thing~. Zayn's turtleneck was not out of place, despite being in L.A., because, as you may have heard, it's 61 degrees there and all Angelenos are freaking out about the cold front. If Zayn gets too cold, Liam could lend him his coat. He always has one with him.

OHHH. So, THAT'S what her cherry blossom mic was all about. Katy Perry opened the AMAs with a dramatic performance of her new single, "Unconditionally," and we're starting to get the impression that she's ~quite~ the film buff. I mean, her music video for the song was FILLED with movie refs and now this? Pass the popcorn, girl. In what appeared to be a direct nod to book-turned-movie, Memoirs of a Geisha, Perry wore a light pink flower-covered kimono (which matched her mic) and danced with a purple floral parasol (which matched the purple flowers in her hair). So much matching. The set was made to resemble Japan, with cherry blossom flowers falling from the sky throughout the duration of her performance.

Katy Perry gets prismatic.

Yesterday, Katy Perry announced via Twitter that she'll be spanning the globe in 2014 to support her new album, Prism, on the Prismatic World Tour (which kicks off in London in May). Obviously, our response was: MEOW! Also, YAY! The release of Perry's fourth studio album has ushered in a new era of style for the chameleonic singer, who's long been a courageous pioneer of rainbow-colored hair and exaggerated sartorial statements.

Since she first started promoting Prism a few months ago, Katy's typically been rotating three thematic looks: 1.) Tiger Style—which reflects "Roar," her first single off the new album and has been worn for several live performances of the song 2.) '90s Schoolgirl Steez—which is trending HARD right now and is usually rocked during non-performance appearances and 3.) "Perfectly Prismatic," the most literal interpretation of her album title—iridescent, mirrored, a Lisa Frank visual spectacular. So which look will she choose to sport on tour?

Miley Cyrus

Last night, Miley Cyrus arrived on the red carpet of the 2013 Bambi Awards in Berlin dipped in a floor-length, black, scoop-neck, Jean Paul Gaultier dress from the late-90s. I love this look. In fact, I love when the blonde, Bangerz bombshell elects to wear clothes. It's not that I give a fig about her "messaging" and the "impact she wields on impressionable female minds" when she shuns pants or tops (or both) as she frequently does, it’s more that she's so damned uniformly '90s when she's wearing enough textile that you can suss out her personal style (not that her birthday suit isn't from the ’90s as well [1992 in fact], but you know what I mean).

It's an era that I’m hugely fond of and one at which Miley's particularly good. Between gem-studded vintage Dolce & Gabbana leggings for the VMA red carpet and the shiny, silver mock turtleneck, long-sleeved, knee-length situation (with matching creepers) from the EMAs, this velvet-rolled, cuff-and-collared number from a decidedly The Fifth Element design era from the French designer is just an excellent look. In fact, it's kinda dorky from a fashion perspective (in fact, I'm fairly sure this dress is from JPG's gender-bendy Maille era which is very 'inside baseball').

It’s clear that Miley Cyrus is comfortable with her body so when she uses it as a springboard to take up an unorthodox amount of space or cut an unexpected witchy, spacy silhouette, I get a frisson of excitement about what to next expect from her. It's not unlike when she first chopped off her hair. It’s akin to when Rihanna wears head-to-toe menswear or tucks a flannel tied around her waist INTO her jean shorts. If Miley spends the next week expressly in dresses that LE1F would also look AWESOME wearing, I'd be very happy.

Taylor Swift

Earlier this week, we considered what Taylor Swift might wear to perform at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. We proposed four outfits, though, unfortunately, none came close to showing off as much leg as Taylor did on the VS red pink Carpet and during her actual performance. None of them featured a huge flag either, but, LBR, who saw that coming?

Taylor kicked off the night on the pink carpet in a sequined floral Zuhair Murad dress that previewed just how much leg we'd be seeing throughout the show. Her hair, as usual, was sleek and straight: the only thing missing from her normal beauty game was a swipe of red lipstick. She probs just didn't want to show up the Angels. We feel ya, Taylor.

In conjunction with the release of her ARTPOP album, Lady Gaga opened an ARTPOP pop-up shop in New York City, which MTV was lucky enough to peep privately. *hair flip* The shop is in the former Alexander McQueen store space, which as our tour guide Melissa Notaro (art director, BMF Media) describes it, "has something very Gaga-esque about it." While none of Gaga's legendary McQueen pieces seem to be on display in the shop (think her 10-inch armadillo heels, her 2009 VMA red lace face mask), there are a ton of other immediately recognizable pieces.

Taylor Swift is headed to the catwalk to perform at this year's Victoria Secret's Fashion Show! While we're well aware of what the Angels will be wearing (bras, garter belts, etc.), what Taylor will perform in is a total ~mystery~. We've rounded up some of Taylor's past performance outfits that could serve as inspiration for the show: her typically modest dress will definitely stand out in a room full of scantily clad models, which is not an easy task.

The photo above depicts what Taylor could like performing in front of Behati Prinsloo (the future Mrs. Adam Levine, BTW), in a white turtleneck dress. The dress is multi-layered, and while it looks like some midriff/chest skin is showing, that is a ruse! It's skin-colored fabric covering her actual skin. Swift leaves the exposed epidermis to the ladies in wings.

Lady Gaga gets ready to take flight.

On the eve of ARTPOP, Lady Gaga wore ten different outfits to debut her flying dress in Brooklyn last night—and LBR: that HAS to be some sort of record. Even for Gaga, a woman who seemingly changes clothes every time she exits a building, ten different outfits over the course of several hours, for just one event, is pretty impressive. I mean, hello! That is, like, almost as many costume changes as she had in the music video for “Applause" alone, and that wasn't even live.

The multi-platform artRave event, which included a gallery tour with a 100-inch replica of Jeff Koons’ Gaga sculpture, an 8-song performance, and a full demonstration of that much-hyped flying dress, celebrated creativity and Lady Gaga’s keen ability to overpack. JK! It was all about the creativity. But seriously, let's talk about all those outfits.

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