Adam Lambert Life Ball 2013

If there's one thing we love about Adam Lambert, it's his ability to dress appropriately for every occasion. For Halloween, he channeled the ultimate scary "Glampire," at Elton John's Oscar party he got all dolled up a classic tux, and for "VH1 Divas," he busted out TONS of divalicious fur ensembles. This weekend, Adam hit up the 2013 Life Ball (which is Europe's biggest annual charity event to support those with HIV and AIDs), and, of course, he took the "Arabian Nights" dress code very, very seriously. On the red magenta carpet, he sported his signature all-black ensemble but added a very Arabian twist. He paired a shiny Mugler jacket with a collarless button-up shirt, Les Hommes harem pants, a spiky necklace, lace-up combat boots, and fingerless gloves. Of course he BA-ROUGHT his beauty game by sporting kohl-rimmed eyes with an on-point 'stache, black nails and a tiny bindi.

Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey's "Good Morning America" wardrobe malfunction does not phase her.

It goes without saying that Mariah Carey is FABULOUS. All the way from her Cinderella-themed wedding vow renewal ceremony to that Azzedine Alaïa couture wardrobe to those superhuman pipes that cemented her status as a household name for decades. Accordingly, when Mimi does something, she does it in a BIG way, even if that something is as simple or potentially embarrassing as a wardrobe malfunction on live TV. Mariah hit up Good Morning America this morning to pop off the show's annual Summer Concert Series in Central Park. And pop she did! Or rather, her dress did.

Nicki Minaj Billboard Studded Jacket

In case you missed it, Nicki Minaj sartorially slayed it at the Billboard Music Awards this weekend while performing "High School" onstage with Lil Wayne. She sported a decked-out gold and black studded motorcycle jacket with badass giant shoulder spikes, ripped leggings, high-heel booties, a gold Chanel logo snapback, and crop top. We fuh-reaked out over this look because it's SO throwback Nicki with the straight jet black hair, pale pink lipstick and skin-tight leggings. Little did we know, though, Barbs actually had a WHOLE OTHER version of this killer look that she wore earlier that day (!!!), which we peeped in a video she released this morning.

Beyonce performs "Grown Woman" in Kenzo on The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.

Just in time for her "Grown Woman" track's mass leaked circulation around the interwebz, Beyonce (or Team Beyonce) has JUST uploaded behind-the-scenes footage of the number's Paris premiere. FINALLY, after just under a month of stalking grainy smart phone-captured videos and the few high-quality images Bey posted to her Tumblr, we actually get to see that custom, technicolor, animal print-esque Kenzo romper in action! Mrs. Carter debuts the song with an inspired dance number that has Bey and her backup dancers (also in what looks like custom Kenzo) swimming in energy up to their eyeballs. Each girl has a kind of extra mini-train situation attached at the waist and ruffling out into an abbreviated cascade down the back of the romper, adding a little extra volume, movement, and drama to the truncated stage outfit. Fortunately for us, when Beyonce does something, she never does it half-way—she and her team unveiled all at once a grand total of EIGHT behind-the-scenes video packages from The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour!

Macklemore switches up his looks at 2013 Hangout Fest.

There are a few style things about Macklemore that we know to be unequivocally true: he's not afraid of a little Southwestern vibe, he's into fur coats, and there is a 99.9999% chance he will wear a tank top on stage. SO imagine our unbridled excitement when he adhered to not one, not two, but all three fashion truths AND gave us an extra outfit during Macklemore & Ryan Lewis's multi-song performance at this weekend's 2013 Hangout Music Festival! The moment was major to say the least.

Nicki Minaj Billboard Music Awards

Throughout tonight's Billboard Awards, we saw tons of stars bringing their sartorial A-game to both the red carpet and the stage, but no one donned two totally opposite (but equally amazing) looks quite like Nicki Minaj. When she walked the carpet, she sported a soft and elegant floor-sweeping crimson gown with sequin detailing along the bustier. She finished the look with sky-high red platform shoes and matching nails on both her hands and feet. #dedication For her beauty game, she opted for platinum ringlets, extra thick lashes and nude lips for an-understated-yet-still-red-carpet-ready look.

Jennifer Lopez Adam Lambert

By now you might've peeped all the killer 2013 Billboard Music Awards red carpet looks, but, HOMG, y'all, we need to talk about the performance outfits. We're straight-up astounded by all the sartorial realness we've seen onstage tonight, particularly from the likes of Ms. Jennifer Lopez. She BA-ROUGHT it in a fiery head-to-toe red ensemble while singing "Live It Up" alongside Pitbull. She sported The Blonds sequin red leotard with out-of-this-world feather sleeves and matching thigh-high studded peep-toe boots. For her beauty look, JLo wore straight dark blonde strands with piecey bangs, a smokey eye and nude lip. Halfway through her performance, though, we couldn't help but think her ensemble reminded us SO much of something we had seen before...

Justin Bieber

It should probably come as no surprise that Justin Bieber wore leather to the 2013 Billboard Music Awards. In fact, weeee can't really recall a time in the recent past when Biebs hasn't performed in SOME iteration of the luxe material. And sure, he's even been known to rep head-to-toe leather on occasion, but we're shining a major spotlight on The Biebs and his love of tanned hide NOW because that's pretty much ALL he wore tonight. He skipped the red carpet, but his grand entrance for a "Bieber Air"-themed performance of "Take You" was dripping with leather from his custom one-armed jacket to his extra tight drop-crotch trousers. We had barely stopped reeling from his mirrored Top Gun shades when Biebs returned to the stage to accept an award in ANOTHER all-leather look—this one a slightly unbuttoned baseball jersey and slightly baggier drop-crotch pants.

Taylor Swift performing at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards.

Taylor Swift may not actually be 22 anymore, but she's become the official ambassador of that oh-so-very fun and confusing early 20's age with her song of the same name. Tay performed "22" at the 2013 Billboard Awards tonight, and while we thought at first that she was wearing the tap shorts and tee that have become her go-to performance look as of late, our eagle eyes quickly realized that Taylor wasn't just looking like a cutie in her on-stage look. No, she was telling us something. Her bright blue baby-t, which she wore tight and tucked into her nautical shorts, featured a picture of a sparkly unicorn with a thought bubble. What do you think rainbow bright is thinking while adorning Swifty's tee? If you thought "HATERS GONNA HATE," and let's be real, you didn't, you would be right. "HATERS GONNA HATE," you guys! Any joke you could have made about Tay or her performance, well, failed, because she sees you.

Selena Gomez

Talk about a change of pace! Earlier tonight, Selena Gomez hit the 2013 Billboard Music Awards red carpet in bright, neon, summery Atelier Versace—a vision of '90s raver steez updated for the step-and-repeat. For her performance, though, Selly opted for warm metallics and over-the-top glamour, swaddling herself in all-gold-everything from the tippy-top of her fashion bindi to the hem of her shimmering double-slit curtain skirt. Gomez performed her hit single "Come And Get It" in an ensemble we're affectionately referring to as "Bollywood meets that one Princess Leia outfit courtesy of Jabba The Hut *WINK*, also Barbarella"—point being, girl looked HOTT (two Ts very necessary).

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