Who else loves summertime awards shows?? *raises two hands waaaaay up because obviously we're biased* Our favorite stars coming together dressed to the warm-weather red carpet nines? Yes, PLEASE! One of our faves, the MuchMusic Video Awards popped off last night, and its step and repeat was stacked with season-appropriate stunners from Demi Lovato to Taylor Swift and everyone in between. We boiled it all down to our top five best dressed ladies of the night. Peep our picks below!

Not only did Demi win big in the show, scoring the MMVA for International Video of the Year with "Heart Attack," she slayed on the red carpet in sleek Saint Laurent. D lightened her blonde hair a touch for the event (at which she also performed). All the better to pop against that black, high-necked, long-sleeved, strong-shouldered mini, AMIRITE?

Taylor Swift Fragrance Awards

Dang, if there's one person on top of their perfume game, it's Taylor Swift. Last night, she stopped by the 2013 Fragrance Foundation (FiFi) Awards, where she was nominated for an award (along with Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga) for her previous Wonderstruck Enchanted scent. Not only did accept the award for Fragrance Celebrity of the Year (yay!), but she looked dang good while doing it.

Taylor Swift

Tonight at the 2013 CMT Music Awards, Taylor Swift went back to her roots. We're not just talking about her Nashville homecoming but her style choices, too! After a long streak of pushing her fashion boundaries, going edgy for the Met Gala and working a striking mini on the Billboard Music Awards red carpet, T.Swizzle has gone back to the tried and true color palette she knows best (red, white, and gold) both on the CMT red carpet and on stage. For her arrival, Swift wore a cream-colored strapless dress from the Elie Saab Spring 2013 RTW collection. Covered in exquisite, sparkling blush beadwork, cut loose and away from the body, and styled with Jimmy Choo shoes, Neil Lane jewelry, a Christian Louboutin clutch and what looks like a faux bob, the ensemble is perfect for a fancy summer soiree. Also, dancing!

So, you thought that the Met Gala was the only Fashion (because a capital "F" is totally necessary here) event this summer?! Think again. All the dresses from last month's "Punk: Chaos to Couture" gala may still be fresh in everyone's memories, but another equally stylish party took place last night in New York City—and while it might not be themed, the boundary-pushing glamour definitely didn't disappoint. We're talking about the CFDA Awards, held by The Council of Fashion Designers of America in honor of the best emerging creatives in womenswear, menswear, accessories, and more. Just like the Met Gala, many of the attendees brought celeb dates, who pulled out ALL the fashion stops. But who looked the best? See our top picks below!

There's absolutely no doubt that Hailee Steinfeld is one of the fashion world's newest darlings, and EVERYBODY wants a piece of the 16-year-old actress. She attended last month's Met Gala decked out in dramatic Donna Karan, but last night, she kept things fresh in a shimmery floral two-piece by Suno. The subtle crop top (you can barely see a sliver of tummy!) and the tea length skirt add a dash of formality, whereas her effortless side part and bright lip keep things young and fresh. She might barely have her drivers license, but who cares? Age ain't nothing but a number, and Hailee, we'll take style notes from you any day.

Willow Smith

Willow Smith totally nailed her 'After Earth' premiere look in NYC last night.

Alright, so we know that the new futuristic action flick After Earth is Will and Jaden Smith's movie. We get it. And although the Smith men have been ruling the red carpet as of late, right now we've GOT to give it up for Willow! The younger Smith sibling might not be acting in the film, but nobody can deny she absolutely nailed her look last night at the New York premiere. Dressed in head-to-toe black and white (a trend she's been loving!), the 12-year-old was the epitome of chicness far beyond her years. A statement collar, striped pants, and sleek, super shiny hair... the result is an unexpected preppiness with a dash of signature Willow cool.

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.

Judging from all the awesome fashion moments that have happened thus far at Cannes, it's easy to see how this international film festival makes all those other movie events throughout the year look like, well, casual Friday. We're talking hot-off-the-runway, boundary-pushing ensembles, here, you guys! And sure, the 12-day stint is technically about the flicks, but nobody can deny the fact that all the stars in attendance are also serving up an equal helping of style. While the premieres themselves (Bling Ring! Gatsby!) are worth writing home about, leave it to last night's 20th Annual amfAR Cinema Against AIDS fashion show to take this week's glamour to the NEXT LEVEL. The event read like a who's who list of the global fashion set, featuring top models and actresses alike decked out in seriously covetable designer pieces. And if you want our, ahem, totally un-biased opinion, House of Style hosts Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls were two of the best dressed ladies there.

2 events, 2 different prints-on-prints outfits. Because Solange is awesome like that.

Solange's trademark patterned style may not have technically begun with *that* brick motif pantsuit (a quick Getty search shows she was test-driving the look long before that), but let's be real for a sec. Ever since the singer won us over with last fall's "Losing You" music video, her outfit choices reflect one seriously steadfast fashion philosophy: more prints are DEFINITELY merrier. From her Met Gala Suno gown to those matchy ladylike performance outfits, this is a star who's taken a very particular look and totally owned it. And now, proving just how versatile these wild patterns can really be, Solange has given us an extra dose of wardrobe inspiration with two very different twists on the trend.

The Billboard Awards might've clocked in at a whopping three hours, but between ALL the performances (Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Jennifer Lopez, Selena Gomez!) tonight's show flew by faster than you can say, "Wait, Shania Twain's here?!" In addition to the, you know, music, we're chalking at least a little bit of this up to all of the ridiculously awesome outfits from our faves. Miley showed us once again that you can never have too many jumpsuits in your closet, Selena had a total neon-a-thon in her gown, and Kelly Rowland proved that when it comes to fashion, sometimes silver really IS better than gold. See these ladies and more of tonight's tops looks below!

We've seen Miley Cyrus wear a jumpsuit before (yes, many times...). We've seen Miley wear black and white before, too. Hey, we've EVEN seen Miley in a black and white jumpsuit before! But somehow, the singer still managed to make this tried-and-true look totally fresh tonight, flaunting a diamond-motif crochet onepiece by Balmain that straddles the line between formal and insanely cool. Topped off that swoopy platinum 'do and a statement red lip, this is all the proof you need that summer 2013 basically belongs to Miley Ray Cyrus. Congrats girl, you've done it again!

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.

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