Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey in her subway finest.

For most people, taking the subway is not very glamorous. You're crammed in a narrow box with people who wear huge backpacks and DGAF that, like, three extra people could fit in the space of their bag. Yesterday, four other people and I were prevented from holding onto anything because a woman decided to rest her entire body against a pole at rush hour. In short: The subway is the worst.

Mariah Carey, on the other hand, obviously does not think it's that bad. Maybe it's because she treats it as a luxurious mode of transportation? The elusive chanteuse obviously enjoyed her time on the 1 train late last night, sharing photos from the event (only for Mariah Carey and tourists is riding the subway an event worthy of capturing on Instagram) and describing it as a "joyride" and her look as "#subwayincouture." While normally I try to avoid being on the 1 train at 2 AM, I would've paid to be there for this. Like, way more than the typical subway fare.

And the Oscar for the Best Dress at the 2014 Academy Awards goes to... Ugh, bear with me. This seal is stuck. Man, this thing is REALLY on there. Does anyone happen to have, like, an envelope opener or something? I JUST got this mani and really don't want to ruin my nails. Anybody? Bueller? OK, well, in that case, we're just going to have to give you our top 10 because TBH, we didn't want to pick a favorite anyway.

LUPITA NYONG'O IN PRADA

OHHH, LUPITA. How do we love thee? Let us count the ways! JK, nobody has time for that (our list is LONG). But seriously, we are obsessed with Nyongo's "Nairobi blue," deep-V custom Prada gown. Paired with a delicate gold Fred Leighton headband, diamond leaflet earrings, and her adorable "family totem" frog-shaped ring, the Best Supporting Actress winner proved, yet again, why she's fashion AND film's newest "It" Girl. She just. Can't. Lose.

KATE HUDSON IN ATELIER VERSACE

Just when we thought we couldn't love a gown on Kate Hudson more than that slinky, yellow satin number she wore at the end of How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (GAH. SO GOOD!), she swoops in from left field with this beaded, belly-grazing Atelier Versace gown, complete with shrouded cape.

When it was announced earlier today that Lady Gaga would be making an appearance on the Oscars red carpet, we were like, "OMG, YAAS GAGA YAAAS." Then, we waited patiently (and eagerly) for Gaga to roll up. Finally, it happened. And, we must say, it was worth the wait: Gaga went glam. Big time.

Sticking with her preferred lilac and Versace palette, Mother Monster opted for a strapless gown, complete with mirrored embellishments. Note to all the Oscars attendees who are reading this post: if you forgot your mirror, cozy up to Gaga and admire your reflection. It's the perfect lipstick check opportunity, AND you get to talk to Lady Gaga. Win-win, TBH.

Academy Awards

You guys, the 86th Annual Academy Awards are this Sunday. Like, in three days. Do you have your viewing gowns picked out? Have you picked up cheeses for your appetizer spread? Phew. Us, too. In order to mentally prepare ourselves for all the red carpet looks we'll be treated to on Sunday (also, #tbt), we're taking a look at past Oscars' looks—from Angelina Jolie's right leg-baring Versace Atelier gown to Anne Hathaway's nipple-parody-inducing Prada dress, and everything that came before them.

Over the long weekend, the fashion elite started flocking to Paris to catch a glimpse of the latest in haute couture collections. Lady Gaga was there, too, but I'm pretty sure she was just celebrating herself. Not that I blame her, of course—because she was pretty much the center of attention wherever she went (in, like, a much bigger way than usual). And this is a woman who regularly exits hotels with giant props and once arrived to an awards show on a human horse. Hard to believe, I know.

On Sunday, Gaga celebrated herself with a cameo at the Atelier Versace show (courtesy of her BFF, Donatella Versace). The singer, who was recently named the new face of the Italian fashion house, showed up in a black hooded dress (that would moments later hit the runway for the first time) and her very apropos Donatella-style blonde wig. #twinsies

OBVIOUSLY, Mother Monster sat front row for the show (next to famed photog, Mario Testino), and enjoyed a soundtrack from herself, featuring both old and ARTPOP songs. "ARTPOP: anyone can achieve everything I have and more. Your talent belongs to the world. Share it. You'll wake up in the front row @Versace," she tweeted after the show. Oh, it's as easy as sharing? Good to know. Get to work, Little Monsters.

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.

Listen, people. We know everyone can't stop talking about Miley Cyrus' twerk sesh "We Can't Stop" performance, but we have some serious VMA style moments to discuss here. Before any of the onstage shenanigans went down, we were peeping what the celebs were wearing outside the Barclays Center--you know, on that thing called a red carpet. We saw our favorite gals sporting everything from jeans and a T-shirt to super glam statement gowns, and we loved it all. As you know, though, we MUST narrow it down to our top 10 favorites, so check out who we picked below (and be sure to comment on who you liked best!).

LADY GAGA IN PRABAL GURUNG

Lady Gaga looked dashing in her all-black Prabal Gurung gown, and we know it's hitting us in a special place because we never, ever say the word "dashing." Honestly, we love seeing a sleek, goth-y Gaga wrapped up like a perfect little present, and for that, she makes it to the top of our list.

That's right, Katy Cats! Your fearless ruler Katy Perry (she likes to go by "Mom") is headed for the 2013 Video Music Awards. Filling out an already star-studded lineup (so far including Lady Gaga and Kanye West), Katy will use her VMA appearance Sunday, August 25, at 9 p.m. ET at Brooklyn's Barclays Center for the premier live performance of her brand new single, "Roar." KP's been a VMA mainstay since her One Of The Boys mainstream debut, so in honor of her history-making homecoming (and in anticipation of what "new" Katy will wear for her performance, we're taking a look back at her VMA style evolution. Leggo!

2008: PIN-UP PERRY

It's been a minute since we were first introduced to this version of KP: bubbly, blue-eyed and owner of one of the summer's hottest (in more ways than one) singles "I Kissed A Girl." For her breakout VMA appearance in 2008, Katy went for a red carpet look that mirrored the boudoir feel of her music video: a white satin bustier top with a demi halter neck and silver star embellishments, peach satin hotpants with maribou feather adornments, metallic fuschia round-toe pumps, and a glittery hard case clutch decorated with star-spangled rhinestones. Her lips were red, her liquid liner pristine, and she had a bow-shaped barrette in her hair.

The Billboard Awards might've clocked in at a whopping three hours, but between ALL the performances (Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Jennifer Lopez, Selena Gomez!) tonight's show flew by faster than you can say, "Wait, Shania Twain's here?!" In addition to the, you know, music, we're chalking at least a little bit of this up to all of the ridiculously awesome outfits from our faves. Miley showed us once again that you can never have too many jumpsuits in your closet, Selena had a total neon-a-thon in her gown, and Kelly Rowland proved that when it comes to fashion, sometimes silver really IS better than gold. See these ladies and more of tonight's tops looks below!

MILEY CYRUS IN BALMAIN

We've seen Miley Cyrus wear a jumpsuit before (yes, many times...). We've seen Miley wear black and white before, too. Hey, we've EVEN seen Miley in a black and white jumpsuit before! But somehow, the singer still managed to make this tried-and-true look totally fresh tonight, flaunting a diamond-motif crochet onepiece by Balmain that straddles the line between formal and insanely cool. Topped off that swoopy platinum 'do and a statement red lip, this is all the proof you need that summer 2013 basically belongs to Miley Ray Cyrus. Congrats girl, you've done it again!

Happy Sunday, y'all! You know it's a good weekend when you can cap it off snuggling up at home for hours upon hours of awards show antics. Tonight, we're settling in for a landslide of summer red carpet steez and performance outfits as the 2013 Billboard Music Awards get underway. The show itself doesn't start until 8 p.m. EST, but the red blue carpet is already heating up as our girl Selena Gomez has just hit the step-and-repeat. It's an earlier-than-usual entrance for Selly, but that's because she's also performing tonight.

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