Karlie Kloss at 2013 MTV Movie Awards.
We've still got a couple of hours til showtime for the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, but leave it to none other than our pre-show correspondent Karlie Kloss to kick tonight's fashion game into high gear— fast! The supermodel hit the red carpet mere minutes ago dressed in a slick white Cushnie et Ochs two-piece ensemble, and duh, she looks killer. With a high neckline and a couple slivers of skin, the tummy-baring number shows off Karlie's seriously toned body and somehow makes her look even more statuesque than normal. Which, you know, is REALLY saying something (of course, those white Gucci heels definitely don't hurt the cause, either!). She topped off the sleeveless top and pencil skirt combo with gold David Yurman jewelry and a fresh-faced beauty look. In short, total minimalist perfection.

Helloooooo, NURSE! Excuse us while we shove our eyeballs back into their sockets, but this Selena Gomez Elle Magazine spread is tongue-waggingly amazeballs. Our little Selenita is all grown up and flaunting some seriously sexy fashion. I mean, this is some opulent, glamourous Donatella Versace muse-type steez. For the newstand cover, Sel wears a heavily embellished mesh corset from Dolce & Gabbana with a bold scarlet lip and a grip of gold baubles. She's backdropped against a far-reaching horizon line of rolling ocean waves, onyx hair perfectly windswept, shimmering eyes framed by extra-strong brows.

We will never get tired of seeing our girl Rihanna on the cover of fash mags because she's ALWAYS switching up her look. Whether she's sporting nothing but dirt and leaves (which still blows our mind) or is completely covered in accessories, we're always oohing an ahhing over her ever-changing appeal. This month she graces the cover of Elle magazine wearing a head-to-toe studded pale yellow lambskin Versace ensemble styled by The City's Joe Zee! Her moto jacket, bandeau top, and high-waisted skirt are all AMAZING pieces on their own, but put together it creates a head-turning look that we can't help but drool over. For accessories, she sported stacked David Yurman bracelets and layered silver necklaces—plus a body harness underneath that bandeau. Her beauty game is unreal per ushe. She rocked a soft, layered blonde 'do with sweeping bangs and grown-out roots for a touch of badassness we're really into. She also wore a pop of pale pink on her lips paired with dark brows and long burgundy nails.
We look forward to each year's American Music Awards as a place where breath-taking and outrageous fashions mix, mingle, and outright COLLIDE, and tonight's show was no disappointment. From the bubblegum pink-ness of Katy Perry to the many outfit changes of Justin Bieber, stars turned it OUT in both their flashiest and finest. With so many ladies and gents bringing their fashion A-game, repping so many styles, it's never easy to pick just one favorite, so we picked our top TEN looks of the night.
TAYLOR SWIFT IN REEM ACRA:

Taylor Swift cleaned UP tonight, raking in an armful of awards including the top honor, Artist of the Year. She also looked drop-dead and way mature, might we add, in this champagne-colored Reem Acra column gown. True to Swift's signature style, it was decked out in sequins.

There comes a time in every magazine's existence when the images from within the publication's sacred binding is leaked by some disgruntled employee on a one-way train to Fired-ville (*cough* or the marketing department *cough*). It's happened to V Magazine, Rolling Stone, and Vogue among MANY others, including this month's victim, W magazine. Not one but TWO covers leaked featuring Beyoncé (who is no stranger to the premature reveal) and Christina Aguilera as the faces of the mag's July "Music & Style" issue. And thankfully, W uploaded the REAL covers and spreads to their website, so that we no long have to strain our eyes at the bootleg image quality of scans and snapshots of the glossies against linoleum floors. WEE!!!
For their respective shoots, Bey and Xtina assumed roles seemingly contradictory to how we usually see these ladies. Beyoncé, who's all "HALO" and stuff, dons this S&M lace-up bodice, evoking comparisons to Charlotte Rampling from The Night Porter to where you're sure if they had only panned the camera down 2 feet lower, you'd see her holding a bridle and a riding whip. Also handcuffs. Meanwhile, the long-standing DIRRTY girl cleaned up and combed her hair for her soft, feminine, artistically nakie, Birth-of-Venus-esque cover (though, she does seem to be channeling an earlier Lady Gaga and we haven't forgotten what piercings she's hiding with those roses). While the actual fairy godmother image-leaker is unknown, what I do know for sure is that when this hits newsstands, coworkers beware, these pages will be decoupaged ALLLL over this EA's desk. Now, peruse some of the in-book pics (with fash and beauty credits from W!) from their spreads below and read Bey and Xtina's cover stories while I order a few dozen drums of glue and goldleaf.
