We're not sure if you could tell from the QUADRILLION movie fashion articles we've been churning out for the past few weeks, but we are suffering from MAJOR Oscars fever here at MTV Style. With the 2013 Academy Awards RIGHT around the corner (this Sunday, y'all!) our anticipation of all the history-making red carpet togs is reaching inexplicable heights. We are SO sugar high crazy off the waiting, guys. Or our anxious snack-consuming disease... I DIGRESS. Because the Oscars put the final glamorous cap on the winter awards season, Hollywood's best and brightest save their most show-stopping sartorial numbers for this event, and the results are truly dazzling. To quench our thirst for Oscars fashion, we took a look back — from Angelina Jolie's black velvet Versace Atelier last year (#neverforget Angie's Right Leg) to Michelle Williams in stunning yellow Vera Wang for the 2006 show, from Halle Berry's risky but drop-dead sheer bodiced 2002 Elie Saab to Bjork's infamous Marjan Pejoski swan dress to the unforgettable image Gwyneth Paltrow in baby pink Ralph Lauren way back in 1999, and everything in between — and put the most memorable red carpet ensembles from the past 20 years together in a pretty little photo gallery for you to click through endlessly. That is, until the action starts THIS YEAR with our 2013 Oscars red carpet fashion live blog. Enjoy!

Jennifer Lawrence

After counting down for what seems like forever, the 2013 Academy Awards are this Sunday night! And you'd better bet our eyes will be zoomed way, WAY in on Jennifer Lawrence. This year the star is nominated for her incredible performance in Silver Linings Playbook, which marks the second time she's up for the Best Actress trophy (she nabbed a nom in 2011 for Winter's Bone but lost out to Natalie Portman in Black Swan). There's no question J.Law has been killing the fashion game onscreen and off these days, and we can't WAIT to see what she turns up in this weekend. But in addition to placing bets on which designer she'll choose (Dior? Viktor & Rolf?) and getting your Oscar night plans squared away, here's one more thing to make the time fly: take a trip down Jennifer's red carpet memory lane! We've rounded up her most iconic style moments, from back when she was just a baby-faced Kentucky teenager ALL the way up to as recently as this week, proving just HOW far she's come. See for yourself in Jennifer Lawrence's red carpet style evolution below!

One Direction

Sure, we already tune into virtually every major awards show because we're red carpet fashion junkies, but with the 2013 BRIT Awards' swoon-worthy performance line-up (*cough* One Direction and Justin Timberlake), we had additional reason to keep track of the UK show's step-and-repeat. By now, we EXPECT the 1D dudes to pay meticulous attention to their coiffures, so the flawless red carpet hair is no surprise. What is surprising to us, though, is the attention to sartorial detail these boys are exhibiting for the BRITS. Perhaps it's the home court advantage at work here, but we think Liam, Louis, Zayn, Niall, and Harry deserve a round of applause. And their outfits deserve a closer look. *wink* LEGGO!

It's impossible not to get sad at the mere mention of Amy Winehouse's name, with her death a mere two years ago still pretty fresh in our minds. Amy's father, Mitch, has been keeping his daughter's memory alive through charity work, books, and countless appearances, his latest being on the red carpet of the 2013 BRIT Awards. Mitch took to the carpet outside of the O2 arena in London in a custom powder blue vest bearing the singer's photo. The image used is classic Amy: her wide eyes are painted with her signature swooped cat eye and her lips are bright pink and heavily-lined. You can also clearly see that she is wearing the Star of David pendent she was frequently spotted in (and that her mother now wears), and her trademark gold hoop earrings.

We may be miles across the pond, but pesky things like distance and time zones and international programming limitations aren't holding us back from keeping close tabs on all the fashion comings and goings of the 2013 BRIT Awards (tonight their time, this afternoon ours!) in London. The stars have only just started to roll through, but they are turning it OUT for the mid-week awards show. There are still a few key players we're waiting on (namely performers Justin Timberlake and those One Direction cuties), but we're ALREADY seen a ton of great red carpet fashion. Most exciting for us so far? Taylor Swift shirking her go-to reds, golds, and whites, for a saucy BLACK number with see-through panels, Jessie J looking positively glamorous and near-unrecognizable in a plunging neckline cut to there, sleek hair, and soft feminine makeup, and finally our bb Emeli Sande looking smart in a tailored shirtdress and her trademark platinum pomp. Check out more 2013 BRIT Awards red carpet fashion photos below!

Lily Collins

We've been SO excited about the Costume Designers Guild Awards here at MTV Style, we've been counting to the big night with a series of exclusive interview with the masterminds behind some of our favorite outfits (catch up on them here!). The ceremony finally went down yesterday in Los Angeles, and the stars turned out to support their fave designers like Jacqueline Durran of Anna Karenina and Mirror Mirror‘s Eiko Ishioka, who each won the top awards for Outstanding Period Film Award and Outstanding Fantasy Film, respectively. And while we're serving up a huge congrats to all the winners, right now we HAVE TO discuss the gown that Mirror Mirror star Lily Collins rocked on the red carpet, because, well, it's amazing. The monochrome floor-length frock comes courtesy of Paule Ke, with a deep V-neck and an oversized white bow across the back. The look might not be quiteeee as backless as Selena Gomez these days, but the simple yet stunning cut is enough to make ANYONE sit up and take notice.

Selena Gomez

Don't let Selena Gomez's big doe eyes and baby face fool you. She's a saucy little starlette with an eye for show-stopping couture. The Spring Breakers ladies are making their international rounds, promoting the premiere of their Harmony Korine project from New York to Venice to Paris and everywhere in between. Where Italy brought out the most ladylike of the Spring Breakers girls, Paris marked a turn where the film's leading ladies have started to show off considerably more skin, and judging from the latest red carpet showing from the Germany premiere, chief among them is Miss Selena Gomez.

Despite the familiar Disney faces in Spring Breakers (Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, and even Ashley Benson, by way of ABC Family, all have history with The Mouse), we're not expecting the movie to be anything like the shiny, sparkly happy endings we're used to watching these ladies act out. On the contrary, we're expecting something much closer to director Harmony Korine's first forays into film-making: Kids and Gummo. The reality of just how gritty some of our favorite on-screen good girls become for this film has been a slow reveal. Between Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle tees and motorized scooters on-set and cheeky swimsuit snaps in magazine promo shots, the film's leading ladies have generally kept their Spring Break steez off the red carpet (Exhibit A: the cast's glamorous and ladylike Venice togs). That is, until now. Judging from Ashley, Selena, Vanessa, and Rachel Korine's Paris premiere ensembles, it looks like the girls are starting to rep Spring Break skin on the step-and-repeats, as well!

Beyonce wears Elie Saab to her "Beyonce: Life Is But A Dream" HBO documentary premiere.

Beyonce's forthcoming HBO documentary, "Life Is But A Dream," premiered last night in New York City, and appropriately, Bey looked dreamy in a silvery beige Elie Saab gown. Where Mrs. Carter went for a bold, mod, tailored look for this weekend's 2013 Grammys, Beyonce chose a softer, more ethereal ensemble for her premiere. The floor-length dress was fitted through the bodice with a straight column skirt and a bit of a train for glamour.

Can you believe Karlie Kloss? The woman is an alien, being able to go straight from the Grammys to LAX and open a show at New York Fashion Week all in the span of 24 hours. We're really in awe. We're also in awe of Editor-at-large Mary H.K. Choi, who woke up at the crack of dawn yesterday to bring us all of the Grammys red carpet action, from her Reformation romper, to Karlie's glam-squad routine, to all of the night's crazy looks. Whew. All in the name of fashion, though, right? And boy, did the red carpet ever deliver on that front. From 2 Chainz's Versace cape, which Choi said was "classic to the point of medieval," to Rihanna's classic, old Hollywood glam red gown that Kloss said "made her blend into the carpet" (in a good way) and Florence Welch's custom Givenchy which VH1 host Carrie Keagan said was "channeling her inner dragon," there was so much on the carpet to talk about, we knew we had to pull all of our hosts together to rehash it all. Watch the full recap right here!

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