Style has moved! come with us to mtv news »

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.

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.

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.

Selena Gomez, Siva Kaneswaran

Selena Gomez and Siva Kaneswaran are so happy they won our readers' poll!

The winners of our readers' choice poll for best dressed female and male artists of 2013 have been crowned. Congrats to Selena Gomez and Siva Kaneswaran! The Selenators and TWFanmily have spoken clicked and voted their faves to the top.

It wasn't an easy road: Selena and The Wanted's Siva faced serious competition from the likes of Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, and Zayn Malik. It was a nail-biter, y'all! Siva and Selly laid low for the beginning of the competition, but thanks to their fans who voted thousands of times, they were able to cinch the top spots late in the game, edging them ahead of everyone else by six percent and four percent, respectively. Considering what fashion-filled years these two singers have had, though, it's not hard to see why their fans were so determined to win.

Is it just us, or did 2013 fly by? Like, it feels as though we watched the ball drop last weekend. That obviously can't be, though, because our fave ladies wouldn't have been able to wear all these looks in the span of four days. Well, maybe Lady Gaga could, but it'd be hard, even for her.

Based on the stories y'all clicked on, tweeted about, and shared on Facebook, we've rounded up 10 of the most stylish ladies from this year. Now we need your help in deciding who should be crowned best dressed. Will Lady Gaga continue her reign for the second year in a row, or will her throne be usurped by someone else? It's up to you, so be sure to vote for your fave lady below. And act fast because the poll closes after Wednesday, December 18th!

After cancelling the remaining stops on her Born This Way Ball tour at the beginning of the year, Lady Gaga laid low and seemingly prepared a slew of outfits for her big return. She gave us her Botticelli-babe bikini, a glam-goth Prabal Gurung gown, and a technologically advanced dress that blew bubbles on its own.

When a guy can carve a niche for himself as a paragon of style, it's a truly impressive feat. I mean, HULLO, dudes do not have the same range of options as ladies do. It's a lot harder to keep your look fresh and fashion-forward without peplum skirts and crop tops and a variety of heels. But there is an elite tier of dudes who have done exactly that in 2013.

We pay attention to the stories you're reading, tweeting, and posting on Facebook. Based on all that, we've put together a list of your 10 favorite stylish studs from the past 365 days. Now we need your help to crown the winner. One Direction won as a group last year, but only Harry and Zayn are nominated this time around. Will one of them come out on top, or will they split the 1D vote, leaving room for a new champion? It's up to you, so be sure to vote for your fave dude below. And act quickly because the poll closes after Wednesday, December 18th!

Harry Styles is a fashion icon. But you don’t have to take our word for it—all of Europe says so. (Pretty much.) The youngest member of One Direction beat out ~actual~ models for the title of British Style Icon at this year’s British Fashion Awards AND took home the award for Best Look at the MTV EMA. The dude wears quirky, printed button-ups and black skinny jeans like nobody’s business, and somehow manages to make bed head appropriate for every situation.

Who else loves summertime awards shows?? *raises two hands waaaaay up because obviously we're biased* Our favorite stars coming together dressed to the warm-weather red carpet nines? Yes, PLEASE! One of our faves, the MuchMusic Video Awards popped off last night, and its step and repeat was stacked with season-appropriate stunners from Demi Lovato to Taylor Swift and everyone in between. We boiled it all down to our top five best dressed ladies of the night. Peep our picks below!

Not only did Demi win big in the show, scoring the MMVA for International Video of the Year with "Heart Attack," she slayed on the red carpet in sleek Saint Laurent. D lightened her blonde hair a touch for the event (at which she also performed). All the better to pop against that black, high-necked, long-sleeved, strong-shouldered mini, AMIRITE?

Whereas last night's People's Choice Awards ceremony was all about the public opinion, tonight it was time for the critics to weigh in! The Broadcast Film Critics Association may have had final say on the very best that Hollywood had to offer in 2012, but we're taking it upon ourselves to choose the best dressed stars. Fortunately they turned out in droves, with some of our MTV Style faves (Elle and JLaw, we're looking at you!) rocking their predicted red carpet hits as well as newcomers like the adorable Quvenzhane Wallis. The best part is, awards season is only going to get better from here! So get a style sneak peek at our top dressers below, and let us know who made YOUR list in the comments.

Fact: Elle can do pretty much no wrong. The younger Fanning sib has proven herself as a full-flung fashion maven, pulling off tough trends like those Prada platform sandals, drawn-on rainbow locks, and even a fuzzy pink hat. At tonight's ceremony she went slightly more classic than usual in a strapless Chanel dress from the label's Spring 2013 collection, adorned with flowers and intricate beading. We're digging her beauty look, too— there aren't many 14-year-olds who rock bright pink eyeliner QUITE as well as this one! Plus, she's topped off with the ensemble with the ultimate accessory: a giant, genuine, and 100% adorable grin.

Do you know what the date is today?? It's December 12, 2012. As in 12.12.12, guys! Thanks to our "The Big & Best of 2012: A Year End Celebration Presented by T-Mobile" which has been airing live since noon today, we've been counting down the biggest and best moments of the past year. Around these parts, we hone in on the fashion-filled moments. The best nail art, best facial hair, and even the best Instagram selfies — they've all made it to our MTV Style recaps thus far. What's next up? The results to our Readers' Choice: Best Dressed Stars of 2012 poll!

Lady Gaga, Harry Styles

While photoshopping Lady Gaga and Harry Styles together into gilded crowns and a technicolor light show is definitely a thing we'd do on any normal day, today, this image has a special meaning. Dear MTV Style readers, Gaga and One Direction are the lady and dude(s) YOU crowned as the BEST dressed stars of 2012. We offered up some hefty competition — Beyonce, Demi Lovato, Elle Fanning, Emma Watson, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, Rita Ora, and Taylor Swift for the ladies and Justin Bieber, Zac Efron, Andrew Garfield, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Adam Lambert, PSY, Robert Pattinson, A$AP Rocky, and Kanye West for the dudes — but it was GAGA and 1D that pulled through and reigned supreme. Definite special mention should be given to Miley and Glambert who were SO narrowly beaten out for the titles (check those poll numbers, eep!), but we're going to take this time to go deep into the crisp styles of your winners. LEGGO!

All anyone could talk about on the red carpet at tonight's Emmy Awards was how HOT it was in Los Angeles and how the wacky weather was messing with actors' fashion game (ahem, #celebrityproblems). But hey, you'd never know it was sweltering out, because not a single star seemed affected by the heat. Whatever their secret, all our favorites stayed cool on the red carpet in sleek gowns, poufy dresses, and everything in between. And although some TV stars were conspicuously absent (Lea Michele and Aubrey Plaza, we missed you!), we had more than enough killer ensembles to fill an epic Top Ten list. So let's get to it!


Sarah Hyland

Fact: we loooove Sarah Hyland. And who wouldn't? The Modern Family star is sweet, talented, AND has a seriously stylish instinct that goes way beyond just looking pretty on a red carpet. She co-designed her Christian Siriano dress at the 2011 Emmy Awards, and she's back for round two this year, this time in Marchesa. She worked with designer Georgina Chapman on the dove gray sleeveless gown adorned with glitzy embellishment and draping fabric. We're obsessed enough with the look as is, BUT throw in her fresh-faced beauty look and a sparkly-tipped manicure?! Um, win.

One of the hardest parts of the epic evening that is the VMAs is that inevitable moment when we have to hunker down and decide our 10 favorite looks of the night. As always, the VMA carpet was awash in beautiful, daring, and downright bonkers looks, so to say this is a daunting task is the understatement to end all understatements. While there wasn't quite as much crazy fashion as there has been in the past--no candy raver mosaics, cube hats, or cross dressing, for example--the level of lavish was definitely sky high. With lace, sheer bodysuits, and every twist on leather we could imagine, this year's red carpet was filled with moments that made us pull up the images online, zoom in, and squint as hard as we could to try and take in every detail. The competition was fierce, and in our opinions everyone looked awesome (yes, even that guy in the pink spandex who totally photo-bombed Holland Roden's Red Carpet Report interview with Miley Cyrus), but in the end we had some faves that we just couldn't help but call out.

We are so envious of the luscious locks the boys of One Direction were sporting on the red carpet, yeowza. The perfect combination of voluminous and soft, while also looking structured, we just want to run our hands through all of their hair like the giant creeps we now feel like for writing that sentence. But really, it's like the band stuck their heads in front of a very strong breeze and then expertly shellacked the results into place. Is that a perfect swirl right at Zayn's forehead? It is! Ah-may-zing. Oh yeah and they also wore clothes, whatever. Their red carpet look was sharp, classically British, and refined, with a mixture of slim suiting and classic basics in warm colors. And it complemented their hair (did we mention their hair?) perfectly.

As if it weren't obvious enough already from the surf boards they give out as prizes, the Teen Choice Awards show is ALL about having fun. Lucky for us, the show's carefree summertime mentality also translated into some equally awesome outfits for everyone who was lucky enough to attend. All of our faves turned out on the red-sorry, pink- carpet, from Selena to Taylor to Holland to No Doubt (continuing their epic return, yesss!). And while it's tough to narrow all the styles down to our top ten, someone's gotta do it. Check out our official Best Dressed list below!

Selena Gomez

Between steamy magazine covers and starring in her sultry perfume commercial, there's no question that Selena Gomez is all grown up. But for Teen Choice, she looked the part of, well, a teenager, in a bright pink DSQUARED2 dress. Between the mini's skater silhouette, her long, straight hair, and smokey eye makeup, Selena looked like a young, fresh, modern-day Barbie. We love the no-fuss hair and makeup, and how Selena opted for absolutely zero jewelry. This is proof that you don't have to be totally over-the-top to still look totally gorgeous.

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