If you live on this planet ("Hi! I'm Earth. Have we met?"), there's a chance you may have heard by now that Miley: The Movement, airs tonight. *SQUEAL* It's basically gonna be like Christmas, but with more twerking, less wreaths and like, a TON of tongue. ICYMI, Miley Cyrus, Queen of Can't Stop/Won't Stop, has had a pretty may-jah year, so we thought it only fitting to pay tribute to the artist-formerly-known-as Hannah Montana with the sincerest form of flattery: Halloween costumes, DUH. Oh. What? You thought all the foam fingers would be sold-out by now? YOU THOUGHT WRONG. (Go. Buy. Now.) And BTW, you won't find any pre-packaged costumes here. NEWP. *hair flip* We decided to get RULL creative to help you put together your favorite Miley moment: from that VMAs performance to one of the first times we saw her twerk (in a unicorn onesie, no less) and even alllll the way back to the vintage Miley days of The Disney Channel—we are hookin' you up with some super-sweet outfits that will a.) provoke jealousy b.) get people talking and c.) prahhhbably rile up the Parents Television Council. So, you're welcome.

You've seen it, you know it, you love it and you totes don't get what all the fuss was about. When Miley ripped off her fuzzy-wuzzy wuz a leotard on stage at the 2013 VMAs, gasps echoed through the crowd. It was awesome. Cyrus rocked a nude, latex two-piece and white platform sneakers for the second part of her performance, and chose to accessorize the look with a simple, now-infamous foam finger. But don't stress! We get it—not everyone has the cajones to be quite as ~bold~ as Miley, so we tried to achieve her VMAs look with a little more, um, coverage. The mesh panel on this pale-colored bodysuit gives the illusion of belly-bearing, without having to worry about like, doing crunches and stuff.The matching gym shorts allow you to go about your trick-or-treating without showing everyone your booty and the bright red lipstick will make sure that your words stand out in a crowd. (As if the foam finger won't do that already.)

Selena Gomez is pretty much living the dream in Milan right now. How do I know this? Because my BFFs, Anna Wintour and Donatella Versace, could NOT stop gabbing about her during our most recent group Skype sesh, wherein we also talked about pizza and #FASHUN and another former Disney darling who's been making some more, um, mature, wardrobe choices of her own these days. Just kidding. Anna Wintour and Donatella Versace don't use computers! They have someone else do all their interwebbingz for them, obvi.
But seriously. Now that Selly is no longer in danger of catching drop-crotch fever from the Biebs, she's been working on her style game in a major way. Gomez attended the Versace show in Milan on Friday and wore a killer mixed medium black dress with a bandage cut-out top and shimmery a-line bottom. She accessorized the look with a vampy red lip, smokey eyes and jet black nail polish. But instead of going home and emailing her runway wish-list to Santa Versace's PR people, she talked about the line over dinner with Donatella herself, as evidenced by a photo she posted on her Twitter with the caption, "To be great, learn from the greatest." And it doesn't get much greater than Donatella Versace. Unless, of course...
Obviously, there are a gazillion photos taken at New York Fashion Week. There are pictures of the runway, front row, backstage, street style, events, and parties, but, hello, candids > posed pics. Not to be too voyeuristic about it, but photos people don't know they're in are just better. Let's play a game of I Spy, Fashion Week edition.
NICKI MINAJ TAKIN' PICS

While the shows at New York Fashion Week are officially winding down, there is still a lot to discuss and dissect, including what celebs hit up what shows and, of course, what they wore. Yesterday was the last full day of shows, so the front rows were packed with famous faces and FASHUN. Allison Williams, a front-row fixture at Fashion Week this year, hit up the Reed Krakoff show in a black, tan, and white color-blocked dress, paired with a gold cuff, black sandals, and a black bag. Iggy Azalea attended a few shows yesterday, but wore a black and blue cut-out dress with black booties to The Blonds show. Olivia Palermo, who def attended the most NYFW shows (get this girl a prize!), trekked from show to show yesterday in two sets of polka dots. Dots on dots on top and bottom: she wore a spotted Tibi shirt and dotted peeptoes, broken up by a flared white skirt. She threw in a pop of color with an orange-and-white Smythson clutch and, typically, didn't remove her reflective sunglasses, even indoors.
King Krule plays at Bowery Ballroom.

Certain New York evenings are significant and judging by my Instagram feed from last night, loads of people had heaps of fun at the DKNY 25th anniversary party held down at Wall Street. But further uptown, at Bowery Ballroom, I went to see 19-year-old Archy Marshall, a.k.a. King Krule, play to a packed but intimate crowd upon the release of his debut album 6 Feet Beneath the Moon. It was mind-bogglingly, face-meltingly pleasurable. The kid is really important.
Cast in a soft violet light, the flame-topped, gangly Brit arrived onstage promptly at ten and didn't say much at all outside of singing or introducing his songs. It was all, "this one's about living under the sea," or else "this one's about the sky," which seemed exactly right for someone responsible for this season's most depressing, profoundly English tunes.
Since this is a style site I'll leave the music reviewing to others but I will say that a great place to start (for the uninitiated) is to watch the "Easy Easy" video on repeat because it's perfect for fall in that it's. Just. Gutting. It's wistful but hopeful and you feel like you've missed everything already. And if you've been on a fashion week bender, you might as well have a good, self-indulgent cry so you can leech out some of the crazier-making caffeine and vestigial alcohol shambling in your system.
2 Chainz and two tees from his Neff collection.

It's no secret that 2 Chainz is obsessed with fashion. I mean, remember that time he wore a decked-out Versace Dracula ensemble to Grammys? Or, hi, have you heard all that designer name-dropping in "Feds Watching"? Yeah, 2 Chainz is SERIOUS about style, and this week he's taking his fashion fandom to a whole new level—by designing his first ever clothing collection with Neff! The limited-edition line features two graphic T-shirts: the "2 Handz Tee," which features a pair of praying hands, and the "N Chainz Tee," which features an "N" filled with (you guessed it!) gold chains. Obvi all tees must be worn with layered necklaces à la 2 Chainz to complete the look, but a snapback and sunglasses are not necessarily mandatory.
Rihanna does some casual shopping in Soho.

No shirt, no problem! After partying with Nicki Minaj and Alexander Wang on Saturday night, Rihanna hit the streets of New York’s Soho neighborhood on Sunday for a little back-to-school lingerie shopping at Agent Provocateur, as you do. With only a single button separating Rih from an R-rated (heh) wardrobe malfunction, the singer sported an oversized black letterman jacket and nothing but her tattooed chestplate underneath. In the past, we’ve seen her rock a similar look with an itty-bitty crop-top peeking out, and there’s certainly not much of Miss Fenty we haven’t already seen on her Instagram, but girl! It was really windy in New York yesterday and accidents are bound to happen when the paps are in tow! Although, I guess when you’re carving time out of your day to shop solely for luxury bras, why bother wearing one at all? #HassleFree
Lady Gaga at the airport in Atelier Versace.

You know how, when you're heading to the airport, you want to wear something sheer and full body, so you have to take off the entire thing to go to the bathroom? So does Lady Gaga! After the VMAs, the singer skipped the after-parties to head to the airport in an Atelier Versace FW 13 jumpsuit. While on the runway, the look was presented with a completely sheer polka-dot turtleneck and two gigantic, jewel-encrusted chains, Gaga skipped the shirt and the chains (too much hassle at security, probably—pretty obvious Gagaloo is looking to travel comfortably and quickly) and instead, paired the crystal embroidered jumpsuit with a half-cup bra from the same collection. She threw on her long, wavy brown "Applause" wig, some black leather Alaïa boots, and Tom Ford sunglasses.
Grimes and 2 Chainz wear the same Versace pants to the 2013 VMAs.
Aannnnd we have officially witnessed the first of tonight's extra magical magic moments: Grimes, our Red Carpet Report co-host, chose Versace menswear pants for tonight's ensemble and… so did 2 Chainz. Chainz went head-to-toe
Vehrsayse, doing his classic jiggy man-rapper look, while Grimes tempered her pants with adidas sneakers and a black baby tee. Very Montreal underground promoter doing bday dinner at Nobu. But they were unmistakably wearing the same pants. #2Pantz
