Taylor Swift has always been one of the most consistent style stars on the red carpet, taking an "if it ain't broke, why fix it?" approach to event dressing. There's nothing wrong with that, but that just means it's an even huger deal than usual when the singer strays away from her go-to look. And at tonight's Billboard Music Awards, Taylor decided to go against both her trademark color palette (red, white, silver, gold) AND her signature silhouettes (long gown, princess frock), showing off a side we rarely get to see. Perhaps coordinating with the blue carpet, Tay sported a sparkly blue minidress by Zuhair Murad with sheer panels at the top. Paired with stappy black heels and working major leg, is this Taylor putting her own spin on the Las Vegas locale?! We're betting yes.

Ke$ha wears Givenchy at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards.

You really never know with Ke$ha. Will she go all out with glitter, crazy talons, and insane makeup on the red carpet, or will she take things in the opposite direction and wear something more classically glamorous. For her turn on the 2013 Billboard Music Awards carpet (which, incidentally, is blue and not red), Ke$ha decided to go with a little bit from column A, a little bit from column B in a daring, ultra-mini Givenchy LBD. With a high neckline and modern, sculptural ruffles down the front, the dress looks at first like it might be may closer to 'nun' than 'naughty,' but then Ke$ha turns to the side and BAM!, you see that the dress has a slit almost all the way up to her hip. Is side-butt the new side-boob? Daring, indeed.

Happy Sunday, y'all! You know it's a good weekend when you can cap it off snuggling up at home for hours upon hours of awards show antics. Tonight, we're settling in for a landslide of summer red carpet steez and performance outfits as the 2013 Billboard Music Awards get underway. The show itself doesn't start until 8 p.m. EST, but the red blue carpet is already heating up as our girl Selena Gomez has just hit the step-and-repeat. It's an earlier-than-usual entrance for Selly, but that's because she's also performing tonight.

Miley Cyrus at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards.

The 2013 Billboard Music Awards are off and running, and who better to kick off the night than Miss Miley Ray Cyrus? Even before the singer hit the red— er, blue— carpet in Las Vegas tonight, she tweeted out this photo working the camera in a black and white crochet Balmain jumpsuit. Now, we're already well aware of how much this star LOVES both formal and informal onesies, but haven't seen her in a knitted version of the comfy staple...well, until now. Fresh off the French label's Spring 2013 runway, this intricately-woven piece comes covered in diamonds and teeny tiny cutouts. The result is simultaneously boundary-pushing, effortlessly chic, and 100% Miley.

Whew, the Cannes Film Festival is huge, y'all. If you can barely keep up with all the red carpet events, screenings, and press conferences, don't worry—you're not alone. The celeb-studded, week-long event (which just started yesterday) is guaranteed to bring out some insanely amazing fashion statements, and we've hand-picked the top need-to-know moments from the festival so far so you don't have to! (You're welcome.) Check 'em out, and let us know what you think in the comments below!

Emma Watson already put us to shame with her killer airport style upon arriving to Cannes, and yesterday we got to peep her first Bling Ring photo call ensemble, which was equally awe-inducing. She sported a burgundy two-piece Christopher Kane number with feather trim and pointy black pumps. Oddly enough, her co-star Claire Julien also wore a midriff-baring look! She showed off an all-white Balmain halter and skater skirt paired with peep-toe heels, which means, yep, showing skin is officially in, y'all.

The Met Gala may have only been Monday night, but in Internet time, that's EONS. Just as we were starting to get over the shock (or perhaps more accurately, the confusion) of seeing our favorite celebs try to make that punk theme work, Beyonce brings the night's festivities back to the forefront of our psyche. Yep, we're thinking about Bey's Givenchy flame-engulfed gown again. Fire-tipped over-the-elbow gloves, thigh-high boots, grommeted belt and all. And why?? Because King Bey just uploaded the original Givenchy sketch to her personal website!

Topshop At The 2013 Met Gala

It’s been almost 24 hours since the Met GalaPunk: From Chaos To Couture” red carpet began, and we’re still spinning from all the studs and safety pins. We saw a ton of Givenchy, some vintage Valentino, some significant Stella McCartney and then, bursting from between the throngs of these famed designers, we saw five different looks from Topshop. Yep. That’s right—the Topshop that you yourself can afford to shop at. The most surprising part? We couldn't tell the difference between the high end and the high street.

Joan Smalls with Tom Ford and Karlie Kloss at the 2013 Met Gala.

Is there anything we love more than seeing our beautiful House Of Style hosts, Joan Smalls and Karlie Kloss, looking STUNNING on one of the biggest—both literally and figuratively—red carpets of the year? NOPE. Lucky for us they absolutely shine on literally every carpet they walk, but we have to say that the twosome were in especially fine form at the 2013 Met Gala. Joan was on the arm of Tom Ford, who outfitted her in a stunning black lace gown with the most amazing combination of figure flattering cling and floor brushing draping that we think we've ever seen. Her beauty look was simple, with a dark eye and bare lip, but she made a nod to the gala's "Punk: Chaos to Couture" theme with straight, side parted ombre locks. Karlie, on the other hand, walked the carpet solo, but it was clear which house was her sartorial partner in crime: Louis Vuitton.

It was the question heard 'round the world (and the interwebs) ever since we first got word of 2013's Met Gala theme: HOW do you dress for "Punk: Chaos to Couture"?! Well, the rebellious rough-and-tumble inspiration for tonight's main event may have thrown some attendees for a loop, but that's OK, because we found more than enough style stars to stay true to theme and shake things up on the red carpet. Of COURSE mainstays like Debbie Harry, Donatella Versace, and Vivienne Westwood did it right—that much should have been given. But the ladies we're calling out below are the ones who surprised us by their unexpected loyalty to the theme, those who weren't afraid to go beyond the safety pins and a few statement studs. So let's all give a round of applause for the most creative, most committed punk-themed Met Gala outfits of the night, shall we?

If there's anyone we can count on to get down with a theme, it's this girl! Cara Delevingne may be a supermodel, but you'd better bet she went all-out punk tonight in a custom studded Burberry dress. Rocking that seriously plunging V-neck like there's no tomorrow and showing off her Genevieve Jones earpiece with a deep side part, we ALL wish we could make punk somehow look that...well, pretty? Sigh.

Katy Perry Nail Art Met Gala

By now you've probably peeped ALL the insane Met Gala red carpet looks, but have you seen the nail art?! Everyone from Katy Perry to Rita Ora to Nicole Richie sported super ornate manis that we NEED to discuss. KP matched her embellished Dolce & Gabbana ensemble with equally decked-out nails. She layered blue and pink glitter over gold polish and finished the look with gold pyramid studs and ruby gems. WERK.

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