While yesterday was the seventh day of Fashion Week, it was not, in fact, the conclusion of NYFW. Nope, despite the event's name, it actually goes through today, which means we are not yet finished finding celebrities in the front row! Yesterday was full of faces we hadn't seen yet at NYFW—new people like the one inside Lil' Kim's body!
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!

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.
When we realized that the 2013 American Music Awards would showcase a whopping 16 live performances, we knew we were in for a grip of exciting brand new performance outfits. What we forgot about (momentarily) was that the stacked set list ALSO meant the red carpet would be full of high-octane #FASHUN. The stars turned it our for the AMAs step-and-repeat, and we're breaking down our favorite looks of the night.

Taylor Swift may have skipped the stage this time around, but she still won big. No, not just by looking drop dead in that glittering gold Julien MacDonald minidress. T.Swizzle also took home the award for Artist of the Year as well as Favorite Female Country Artist and Favorite Country Album.

Va-va-VOOM! With Prism hot off the record presses, Katy Cats are getting a double-dose of their fearless queen today with a new series of photos from W magazine. Actually, seeing as how they snapped dual Katy Perry covers for the Special Edition “Global Style” issue, we’re really getting a ~triple~ dose of the provocative pop singer. Perry channels old-school screen-siren glamour on one cover, wearing a perforated white Chanel dress and Harry Winston diamond block earrings with a small stud diamond necklace (also by Winston). Oh, and her makeup? All COVERGIRL products for the brand's newest face, ‘natch. (Though, on the second cover, she wears Michael Kors and Revlon.)

This season’s New York Fashion Week is chock full of celebrity sightings, and even as the week comes to an end, stars are still hitting up front rows at the final runway shows for Spring 2014 from Diesel Black Gold to Oscar de la Renta and showing off their freshest threads along the way. Let’s take a look at some front row fashion highlights from the past 24 hours!
Willow Smith at Narciso Rodriguez and Michael Kors.
Move over Tavi, because there's a new fashion wunderkind in town! Ok so maybe nobody's competing here, but Willow Smith is definitely stepping up her already A+ fashion game. The 12 year old singer/actress is attending her first ever New York Fashion Week with mother Jada Pinkett-Smith this week, popping up at the Narciso Rodriguez and Michael Kors at Lincoln Center. We're actually surprised that this is Willow's first NYFW, given her amazing style (and not just for a tween) and her fashion blog, but better not-late-at-all than never. If this is the style Willow is rolling into shows with at 12, can you IMAGINE what it's going to be like when she's 16? 18? 21? We'll all be bowing at her feet, if we aren't confined to walkers by then, that is. For her first appearance, Willow wore a baby lamb track jacket, illustrated tee, black skinny sweatpants, combat boots, and an electric neon satchel. She gave just the right amount of petulant for someone her age, sassing the camera with a cotton candy pink pout. She switched it up at Michael Kors, trading her almost-all-black look for a classic white moto jacket with gold studs, studded boots, cropped leather pants, and an AMAZING gold top with conical spikes coming out of the fabric (a la Florence Welch at the Grammys). She paired this look with a white satchel and an Eye of Providence necklace. Killer. Is it weird that we're totally taking outfit notes from a 12 year old? but do you really think this girl went to the shows without nail art? Come on! Check out Willow's fashion week mani after the jump!
Oh. My. Gah. The 2013 Grammys are officially over, and we have to say—this has been one of the best dressed events to date. Everyone looked so classy and cool in their simply chic gowns (and suits!), and we're still dying over it. Rihanna stunned us in a sizzling red number while Taylor Swift went the Grecian goddess route in a plunging white gown, but overall, we are super proud of our top 10 Grammy red carpet picks because they are just STUNNING. Check 'em out below!

We've already said so many words about Beyonce's Oman Yousefzada jumpsuit. How it reminded us of her leaked Vogue cover and how she and Hov were totes matchy-matchy. But it's the poised boss lady elegance of the look amidst all those wardrobe malfunctions waiting to happen that lands her on our Best Dressed list.
With so many winter awards shows running, it's hard to stand out from the crowd. While we'll always have a soft spot for that little music event in February, the Golden Globe Awards are absolutely one of our favorite shows because the worlds of film and television merge for one magical night of sartorial one-upping. From silver screen starlets like Anne Hathaway to small screen sweethearts like Sarah Hyland and even soundtrack songstresses like Taylor Swift, the PYTs turned it out for the Globes step-and-repeat, and while it was a lofty task, we've whittled it all down into our list of the top 10 best dressed ladies of the night.
ANNE HATHAWAY IN CHANEL COUTURE

The lovely, doe-eyed Anne Hathaway shone bright in winter white Chanel couture. The dress, surprisingly resurfaced from the label's Spring 2009 archives, featured a sleek strapless neckline cutting straight across the chest and the look of being two pieces. The Les Miserables star won big tonight not only for her award as "Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture," but also with her strikingly simple column dress.

If there's one thing we know about Lauren Conrad, it's that she's got her beauty game on LOCK. Whether she's switching up her strands with hot pink tips or teaching us how to do a step-by-step half moon mani, LC is always sharing the best beauty advice with her fellow ladies. I mean, it's no wonder she's releasing a book about, well, exactly that (appropriately titled Lauren Conrad BEAUTY) and was hand picked as Allure's gorgeous November cover girl. Presh! For her cover look, she ditched her typical wing-tipped liner for bare lids, luscious lashes, and a fire engine red matte lip. She wore her hair down and straight, which gives off a soft and beautiful beachy vibe that's totally reminiscent of her Laguna Beach days. She finished her look with a navy 3.1 Phillip Lim bikini top and matching cotton silk Dior toile skirt. (No one remind us that winter is just a couple months away, please. Kthxbi.)

"Since my first Vogue cover, I've gotten a lot more fearless, a lot freer, a lot more comfortable with who I am," said Rihanna in a behind-the-scenes video during her November Vogue cover shoot. Honestly, we couldn't have said it better ourselves. RiRi appeared on the most recent issue sporting a super-short pixie cut, seriously smokey eyes, a fire engine matte red lip and bold red strapless Valentino Resort lace gown exuding TONS confidence. It's a totally different vibe than her soft and ethereal April 2011 cover where she looked more unassuming and cautious in her mermaid-inspired ensemble. "As I've started to change and grow up, I've started to embrace that. I've started to infuse that in my fashion, as well as my music," Rihanna continued. We couldn't be MORE on-board with Rihanna's ever-evolving look, especially her freshly-shorn 'do. She said, "I love cutting my hair. The shorter it got, the more I was falling in love with it. I felt like the long hair was holding me back a little bit. I loved it, but it was always a thing I had to think about and make sure it was done. It felt brand new."
