Style has moved! come with us to mtv news »

Thanks to her soulful breakout singles like "Wildest Moments" and "Running," by now everyone should be very well acquainted with the vocal powerhouse that is Jessie Ware (if not, get schooled here!). But something else that you should know about our latest Artist To Watch is that the London singer has an elegant style that perfectly complements her honey-smooth sound, and this is why we're naming her our newest Rising Style Star.

Proving that you don't always have to OD on glitter or rock rainbow wigs to necessarily make a statement, Jessie sticks to low-key red carpet staples with a quiet power. One consistent thread running through many of her outfits over the past year is not-so-basic black, like that effortlessly cool crop top number by Miu Miu she sported to this year's BRIT Awards. The bedazzled sleeves lend the outfit a touch of opulence, the flash of midriff gives it edge, and the long skirt keeps the look from swaying too far into belly dancer territory. Something else we've noticed: the 27-year-old tends to choose long, ankle-to-floor-skimming silhouettes, like the white floral embellished dress she wore to the BRIT Awards nominations and the sophisticated cut-out gown she rocked at the Mercury Prize Awards. There's no denying that Jessie has impressively mastered the formal fash thing in record time, but when she's NOT collecting prizes left and right (which is becoming rarer and rarer these days), chances are the singer has slipped into her off-duty uniform of tailored pants and classic blouses.

Oh, you thought awards season was over? Not so fast, y'all. Yep, we're talking about the Nickelodeon 2013 Kids' Choice Awards, which went down tonight in Los Angeles. And what a night it was! From the trampoline on the orange carpet to the get-up-and-dance performances to duh, the SLIME, this was one jam-packed couple of hours. And because we're alllll about the fashion over here, you didn't think we'd leave you without a *~totally and completely official~* best dressed list, did you? No way. So let's do this!

SELENA GOMEZ IN OSCAR DE LA RENTA

Our girl Selena Gomez kicked off one of the top trends of the night in her shorts and peplum ensemble by Oscar de la Renta. Keeping things easy, breezy, and effortless, she paired the separates with strappy heels and a neutral clutch for pretty much our DREAM springtime outfit. Ahem, now if only the weather would cooperate...

We all know that Ke$ha is the ultimate party animal, and she certainly didn't disappoint at the 2013 Kids' Choice Awards. The singer performed a little bit of "We R Who We R" AND "C'mon" at the show, and did so while wearing what we're confident was THE CRAZIEST outfit of the night. We knew she Ke$sha had something up her sleeve when she showed up on the red carpet with her little bro, channeling 90's comedy classic Dumb & Dumber in a powder blue suit, so we can't say we were shocked when her on stage look was a veritable kooky feast for the eyes. KeSha took to the stage with her hair pulled back in a tight ponytail (channeling Iggy Azalea, perhaps? Or Katy Perry's 2012 KCA look?), wearing one one of the most epic outfits we've seen, maybe ever. Bold statement, we know, but let's just look at it in parts. Multi-colored fun fur? check. Holographic shorts? check. Creepers? Check. Neon button up? Check. It's like 70's New York City punk, 90's rave and aughts Brooklyn got into a fight all over our girl. Did we mention that we love it? We love it.

MEOW! Katy Perry took to the 2013 Kids Choice Awards red carpet tonight in a look that not only showcased the crop top—one of the biggest trends of the season—but fit in with the fun, silly atmosphere of the awards show perfectly. Now, we know that Katy has gone ALL OUT at the event in the past, but we have to say that we're loving her look. Katy, who won the award for Favorite Female Singer, paired a simple, side-parted hairstyle, bubble gum pink lip, and patent Louboutins with a show stopping patterned Herve Leger skirt set. Showing off her killer bod in the designer's signature figure-hugging silhouette, Katy looked relaxed and gorgeous. While it may look like a simple outfit at first glance, there's actually quite a lot going on in both pieces. From the zipper spanning the entire length of the skirt, to the sportswear-inspired cross-back of the top, Katy's Herve is a welcome break from a sea of cocktail frocks.

It was a family affair on the orange carpet at the 2013 Kids Choice Awards! Brother and sister duos like Ke$ha and Louie Sebert and Jaden and Willow Smith strolled together in sibling style.

When it comes to the Smiths, well ya can't really get much more sibling star power than the two of them (especially after we've already seen instances of their coordinating style- please say this will become a thing!?). Jaden kept it simple with an oversized black hoodie, pants and sneaks, really letting Willow shine. The budding fashion maven rocked a denim jacket, white textured frock, some well-loved Chanel boots and neon socks for a pop of color.

It's been a minute since we last heard from Kristen Stewart—and after dealing with an injured foot at the Oscars, girl probably could've used a break! So needless to say, we were psyched to see the actress out at tonight's 2013 Kids' Choice Awards, turning heads in a major way. Dressed in a navy blue shorts outfit designed by Osman Studio, K.Stew looked KILLER, that much is obvious. While we all know she can rock floor-length gowns like a pro, and it's also a well-publicized fact that she loooves to go cas in sneakers and a t-shirt, the cool thing about her outfit here is that it actually straddles the line between the two. Part off-duty K.Stew and part ultra-glam movie star, these easygoing shorts plus classic black pumps are the perfect combination. It's not the first time she's eschewed a dress for shorts at events, and the leggy look is a formula that obviously works.

Charli XCX Sky Ferreira

Well, looks like somebody- make that TWO people- have been brushing up on their Clueless, their Spice Girls, and their Daria! Two of our absolute fave '90s babies, Charli XCX and Sky Ferreira attended the NME Awards yesterday in London, decked out in their retro grunge girl best and showing off their own takes on '90s staples. Charli's been obsessed with the Spice Girls since pretty much forever, and it shows- in her music AND style, whether it's Buffalo platform shoes, rubber bracelets, or crop tops. The London singer brought back the decade in full force on the red carpet last night, rocking her beloved Buffalos (she told The Fader that she owns 6 pairs!) as well as a knee-length plaid pleated skirt, long-sleeve crop, and ripped tights. Then there's Sky, who took a different twist on the '90s trends with her trademark schoolgirl uniform.

Paloma Faith miiiight not be a household name for those of us stateside quite yet, but fingers crossed that's about to change really, really soon. The English singer and songwriter is already a HUGE star overseas thanks to her soaring high-pitched vocals, two albums (which are both extremely awesome, we might add) and a penchant for turning her live performances into a fashion explosion of eye-popping dresses, heels, and even headwear. Now that her U.S. debut Fall To Grace has finally hit America and she's in the midst of a whirlwind global tour, it's officially time to crown Paloma Faith our newest rising style star. So get ready to wake up and hear the music!

Proving that the stage really IS her personal catwalk, Paloma's a huge fan of rocking emerging designers like William Wilde and Wendy Benstead alongside mainstays like Dolce & Gabbana. But whether it's sequins, jewel tones, or a serious mermaid silhouette, Paloma pulls it off with standout charisma. It should go without saying that this lady is an utter beauty chameleon, as well, rocking her auburn hair in retro rolls, a messy beehive, OR topping it off with hats by her fave milliner Piers Atkinson.

Whichever way you cut it, Jennifer Lawrence is a winner. Whether we're speaking in traditional terms about her 2013 Oscars Best Actress in a Leading Role statuette, about her endearingly colorful press room commentary after falling on stage, or even her fit-for-a-princess Dior Haute Couture gown, J.Law has won over our hearts by being simultaneously talented beyond her years, drop-dead gorgeous, and charmingly affable. We could go on for days about all the reasons we love the spunky beauty, but being that fashion is our primary domain, we're laser-focusing on that. More specifically, we're taking a long, hard look back on Jennifer's exemplary red carpet fashion throughout this 2013 winter awards season. LEGGO!

Jennifer was breath-taking and regal at the 2013 Oscars in this ballerina pink Dior Haute Couture gown. The large trumpeted skirt may have been to blame for her little spill, but J.Law handled that little mishap with grace and still looked beautiful and poised for press room questions. Just the day before, Lawrence took a break from her red carpet Dior (she is the newest face of Miss Dior handbags, after all), accepting her Film Independent Spirit Award for Best Female Lead for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook in striking angular Lanvin.

Emmanuel Riva may have snagged Best Actress honors at the 2013 British Academy Film Awards, but Jennifer found a winner (color) in this gem-laden baby pink Dior Haute Couture. Lawrence almost didn't show to the 2013 SAG Awards thanks (or rather, no thanks) to a bout with pneumonia, so you can imagine the gasps of approval from the MTV Style frontlines when she not only showed up but totally turned it out in navy, strapless Dior Haute Couture with a bold red lip and flawless side-swept waves. AND won for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role. Preach.

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