Beyhive, stand up! Our girl Beyonce has officially kicked off her The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour as of last night in Belgrade, Serbia. Thanks to the magic of the interwebz, we're picking up snippets of information about the performance and set list, only further escalating our frenzied anticipation for the tour's stateside homecoming in June. Most importantly (for us anyway), the first night reveal of King Bey's summer tour also means a first look at her Mrs. Carter wardrobe (which, BTW, has just added custom creations from Emilio Pucci, Ralph & Russo, Givenchy, The Blonds, and Vrettos Vrettakos to its already stacked roster). While we're not 100% sure if we're furious that this is spoiling the surprise of the real-deal show or ecstatic that the world wide web affords us the opportunity to eradicate FOMO before even exhibiting symptoms, we're rounding up all the outfits we've seen so far just for you!

I think we can ALL agree that Selena Gomez hit a fashion home run at the MTV Movie Awards this Sunday, ruling the red carpet and stage in not just one, but two gorgeous traffic-stopping ensembles. In addition to that shimmery gold Julien MacDonald minidress she rocked during the pre-show, Sel heated things up big time for her sizzling performance of her new single "Come and Get It" in a Bollywood-inspired Marco and Marco number. But what's the real story behind this pair of eye-popping looks?! InStyle got the scoop from Selena's stylist herself, Basia Richard. According to Richard, that glitzy red carpet ensemble was originally intended for the performance (!), but "Selena fell so in love with this dress that it was instantly her first choice for the carpet." In the end, though, Sel went with a fiery red Marco and Marco piece that Richard customized with Swarovski crystals and gold details, which, heads up, we'll see again in an upcoming video!

Beyonce's The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour kicks off this evening in Belgrade, Serbia. That meeeeans, we should (hopefully) get our very first REAL look at her concert wardrobe by the end of the night. *crosses fingers tight enough to cut off circulation* Over the past few months, we've been teased with an opulent announcement video with Thierry Mugler Haute Couture costuming that hearkened back to Bey's I Am...World Tour togs. We've been taunted with news that both Julien Macdonald AND Dsquared2 would contribute stage swaddlings for Mrs. Carter (but without any example sketches). And now, we've gotten word that even King Bey's feet will be custom outfitted for the tour thanks to Stuart Weitzman.
Will Ferrell and Rihanna both sported all-over money print, but who did it better?.

There were MANY shocking things about Will Ferrell's cameo at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards last night. And although his, um, unexpected encounter with Aubrey Plaza on stage is providing more than enough water cooler convo this morning, the comedian's all-over money print suit is the image that's forever burned into our eyeballs. And you know what? We're not even mad about it! Strutting out onstage (to the tune of Pusha T's "Millions," natch), yesterday's "Comedic Genuis" winner gave a whole new meaning to the term "money shot." But our man Will isn't the only one turning the Benjamins into a fashion statement these days—someone ELSE who appreciates a good dollar bill motif every now and then is Rihanna, who wore a holographic money print dress last month during her Diamonds World Tour.

Looks like Macklemore wasn't the only 2013 MTV Movie Awards performer to keep rep fringe. Selena Gomez implemented the swingy stuff in BOTH her red carpet ensemble and her performance outfit. On the step-and-repeat, Sel was a vision of boundary-pushing beauty in a gold, long-sleeved Julien MacDonald minidress covered in lace and teeny tiny gold chains. She kept all the drama to her eyes and hair with smoky shadow and a unique twist on the French braid with a pompadour and chunky, woven, mane-like situation. A contrast from the romantic, fresh-faced outfits we've grown accustomed to seeing Sel sport for her Spring Breakers press tour, Gomez plays up her split style personality's music side looking sleek with a bit of edge.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis just hit the 2013 MTV Movie Awards stage for an expectedly ROUSING performance of their new single, "Can't Hold Us," and welp, it looks like our performance outfit predictions were only kind of wrong (or right, if you're one of those glass-half-full types). We may have most heavily bet on the Seattle MC wearing a full-bodied fur coat, but we DID still forecast a 25% chance of fringe. And fringe there most certainly was. It wasn't rendered in the sueded leather per usual but instead as regal golden rope all along the shoulders and hemline of Mack's cobalt red carpet cape with a LOUCHE patterned lining made by friend Logan Neitzel. This was just the start of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' self-described "modern matador" performance steez.
WHOA there, Justin Bieber! You definitely didn't give us much notice to mentally prepare for your new "All Around The World Video". Biebs tweeted yesterday, "I have a surprise for all my beliebers tomorrow... #AATWvideo," and while the hashtag kind of gives away the whole surprise element of it all, that's OK, we're glad to get a heads up. Because of this, we were totally eagle-eying Twitter this morning and on our tip-toes ready to pounce on the fashion game as soon as the video premiered. Taking the song's title to heart, the clip follows the star literally around the world, from performances to meet-and-greets to, yes, even an inside peek into his private jet (#swaggy). This tour footage means that we've seen most of these outfits before, but if you think about it, that's a good thing! Consider this sartorial whirlwind your chance to live vicariously through the Biebs (for a few minutes, anyway)... no passport required.

Aw, the video opens with Justin ASLEEP on his private jet! (Side note: Does he actually sleep in a beanie?) But before long we get a glimpse at the rest of his outfit, which includes a black T-shirt, baggy black pants, and olive green sneaks. Moving on...
It feels like forever ago since we found out/freaked out about Beyonce's "The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour" announcement, but, dudes, it starts in T-minus three days. THREE. DAYS. AHHHH. As we get closer to her debut show, details about her performance outfits continue to leak out—the most recent being that the infamous twins behind Dsquared2, Dean and Dan Caten, will be designing at least one custom-made piece for
Queen King Bey, according to Vogue UK. Beyonce's other looks will be created by Julien Macdonald, but who knows who else joined her A-list designer roster. (We'll find out on Monday, though! *SQUEE*)
Carrie Underwood's three Academy Of Country Music Awards looks.
You might not realize it, but here at MTV Style we can get a little bit country. We like to think of ourselves as open-minded, but it doesn't even take an open mind to get down with some of our favorite Nashville ladies. Arguably two of the reigning queens of country, Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift, took to last night's 2013 Academy of Country Music Awards red carpet AND stage in multiple looks that have us swooning. Both women brought it consistently throughout the night, but we have to talk about Carrie first because not only did she do red carpet to stage style like a pro, but she changed her performance look TWICE throughout the night. Starting out the evening in a floral photo printed Naeem Khan gown and a flippy updo, Underwood was a picture of spring. The dress, which featured a sweetheart neckline, A-line silhouette and contrast black sash, also had an epic blown-up tulip print. A daring choice on a carpet which was otherwise relatively tame, and we're wholly in support of it.
HOMG, y'all. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are performing at our 2013 MTV Movie Awards!!! The Seattle-based duo joins our girl Selena Gomez on the Golden Popcorn performance roster, and we could NOT be more excited about it. Not just because we're stoked on all the excellent music action happening at an awards show dedicated to films, but because our stage lineup is extreeemely fashionable (as MTV Style we care deeply about this). We're light-headed and reeling from being sprung this announcement so early in the morning (it's early for us anyway), but that doesn't mean we're not still going to unpack Macklemore's tag-popping MC steez to predict what he'll wear when he takes the stage with his boy Ryan Lewis next weekend (Sunday, April 14 at 9 p.m. ET). Here we go!
Sleeveless shirts are a Macklemore performance staple.

The Look: A shirt without sleeves worn underneath everything else
The Percent Likelihood of Wear: 99.9999%
The Argument: There are many admirable things about Macklemore, but one of our favorites is his unflappable dedication to performance. The dude is high-octane, running on all cylinders, leaping and bounding and flailing his arms all over the place (purposefully) for song after song after song. He's always moving and never looks tired. With all that activity, he heats up quickly, so you can put money on him wearing some sort of sleeveless number at the base of any stage ensemble no matter the topper. We are (okay, I am) personally gunning for something like this Vancouver Grizzlies throwback basketball jersey but know full-well it'll most likely be a cotton tank.
