Much like the government (according to the Gettysburg Address), the People's Choice Awards are of the people, by the people [and] for the people. They also officially kick off awards show season, aka that time of year when gawking at pretty dresses gets us through the cruel winter. From television and movie stars to daytime talk- and game-show hosts, all of Hollywood did one thing really well with their outfits at this year's PCAs: They reminded us that below-freezing temperatures didn't affect California. Oh, and also, that neutrals are trending. Wanna know who did it best? Check out our favorite looks from the 2014 People's Choice Awards below!
BRITNEY SPEARS IN MIKAEL D

Las Vegas looks good on Britney, y'all! The Princess of Pop took a break from her two-year residency at Planet Hollywood to make an appearance (and accept her first PCA!) in a Mikael D pre-Fall 2013 dress covered with silver rose appliqué detailing. Ms. Spears accessorized with Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, a Kotur bag, and Broken English jewelry. Very fun, but also mature.
Dear Whoever Created This Louis C.K. One Tumblr,
You are my new favorite. I'd be comfortable leaving our correspondence at that, but since I'm also using this public platform to shoehorn you into my life as my new best friend, I should elaborate.
You are a genius. I'm not sure how this pun was never made until now, but somehow you beat everyone to it. For that, you deserve all the interwebs propers that bitcoins can buy.
Aside from the wordplay, you've combined three of my favorite things in this world—Louis C.K., Calvin Klein minimalism, and the '90s—into one masterpiece of a meme.
That didn't last very long. A mere month ago, a flaxen-haired Sky Ferreira was announced as the newest face of Redken and quickly opted to return to her brunette roots for the occasion. (Well, mostly. Her brunette eyebrows got the bleach treatment. #rolereversal) But now, according to some behind-the-scenes photos from photographer Eli Schmidt, Ferreira's hair will be back to its bleach blonde ways for her first official commercial. (Her eyebrows, however, are brown again. If you're getting confused, just imagine how her scalp feels.)
Rihanna showing off her makeup, done by her BFF Leandra.

When Rihanna debuted her gold tooth on Monday, we barely noticed the caption that read "Makeup by @leleboo_phucku." Sorry. We're magpies. *SHINYYY* As anyone who has taken a scroll through Rihanna's Instagram feed knows, @leleboo's real name is Leandra and she's one of Rih's BFFs (and her cousin, according to some sources). Last night, Leandra posted more pics of @badgalriri wearing heavy eye makeup, her own handiwork. So is Lee Rihanna's new go-to makeup artist? We investigate.
Based on a lengthy Instagram caption from a few days ago, it seems that Lee has started taking private makeup lessons from a guy named Renny Vasquez. She's posted many a photo of the makeup she's been working on for the past week, but after a mere three days of training, Lee got her first celebrity client: Rihanna! It happens so fast for some people. #blessed
Someone from the Britney Spears camp must have heard me singing "... Baby One More Time" in the shower yesterday, because they just hit us
one more time with TWO new fragrances (and an accompanying ad) from the Princess of Pop, seemingly out of nowhere. (Thanks, Shower Song Gods. Next time, I'll give some One Direction a shot and see how that works out for me. #fivetimesthefun) Granted, the scents aren't ~totally~ new. They're more like two new twists on old favorite Fantasy, which you may remember has had a supporting role in MANY of Brit's music videos.
Allison and Lydia on 'Teen Wolf.'
Teen Wolf is back! After a five-month hiatus, our Beacon Hills High faves are back and, as usual, killin' it, style-wise. Last season, we noticed that pairs of Teen Wolf characters were beginning to dress similarly: Stiles and Scott were tartan twinsies while Allison and Scott matched in double denim (and let's not forget the shirtless Alpha Twins). Scott seems to have passed his affinity for dressing like his frandz on to Allison, who, in last night's midseason premiere, matched Lydia's dressy school steez in a skirt.
Rihanna and Kristen Stewart strip down for new ads.

SEE? We TOLD you the topless trend was happening. (Polar vortex be damned, apparently.) Two major beauty campaigns just dropped, and each ad features a shirtless star. First of all, props to anyone who dares to bare that much skin post-holiday binge. (Celebrities! They're nothing like us!) Second of all, my teeth are chattering just looking at these ladies. Granted, they no doubt had central heating wherever these shoots took place, but everyone else is talking about the weather this week, sooo when in Rome.
Anna Wintour at the 'Girls' season three premiere.

What do you wear when you have a Girls premiere to attend and it's -10 degrees outside? If you're Anna Wintour you get #META and wear a fur coat with an ACTUAL GIRL printed on it. Appropriate and warm! The Vogue overlord pulled this Prada Spring 2014 coat from her closet for the event, yet what she wore underneath remains a mystery. Maybe long johns? LOL, JK, we're talking Anna Wintour here. Plus, you can see a black skirt peeking out from below the coat. Doy!
Anna accessorized the coat with a furry scarf that, from certain angles, creates the illusion that a tiny lamb with extra legs is hanging from Anna's neck. Anna's appearance at the premiere seems to dispel many longstanding rumors about her in one fell swoop: that she always wear sunglasses, never smiles, and doesn't have a sense of humor! Wearing a girl jacket to the Girls premiere? You slay me, Wintour. Not even the four ladies on the show used the event as an opportunity to wear their finest Girls-inspired garb. (Good thing, because if they did, the competition from Anna would be too fierce.)
Miley wears Marc.

Miley Cyrus, never one to shy away from making a statement, decided to wear her
heart opinion on her sleeves today in a pro same-sex marriage Marc by Marc Jacobs T-shirt. The top depicts a presumably lesbian couple in black dresses with their child in matching threads and reads, "I pay my taxes, I want my rights." Wanna know how we know for sure that it's Miley (besides the fact that she posted the pic on her Twitter #tongue)? The tell-tale tat on her left forearm. But mostly because #tongue.
