We've already discussed beauty trends from New York Fashion Week, so now we need to discuss the other major player on runways that isn't, y'know, clothing: HAIR! After looking at basically every Fashion Week picture that exists, we decided the number one trend that ruled the runways, hair-wise, was braids. There were braids everywhere. Some people may think braids are reserved for warmer seasons like spring or summer, but those people would be wrong. Fall/Winter braids are obviously becoming a ~thing~, so you better make sure your fingers are nimble come September. Check out braids from NYFW below!

Braided bangs, a somewhat underused plait in the braid world of which I'm queen, showed up twice on runways. The first was at Creatures of the Wind, where the braid practically covered the model's entire forehead, and the second was at Nanette Lepore where it was thinner and sleeker. You don't need actual bangs to get yourself some braided bangs—just comb some of your hair forward and voilà.

That's a wrap! From 3D glasses-wearing, popcorn-chomping Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to that impossible to forget Breaking Bad breakdancing, the 2013 Emmy Awards definitely gave us some moments to talk about (also, like, every winner's place of birth). But being that #FASHUN is our thing, we're here to wrap up our favorite style moments of the night. From Kiernan Shipka to Kate Mara, these are the dresses we liked best.

Mad Men's Kiernan Shipka may only be 13 (going on 14 this November!), but she CONSISTENTLY stays killing it on red carpet after red carpet. We love her midi-length Delpozo dress with its colorfully embroidered floral bodice and daintily printed and appliquéd skirt. Kiernan (and/or her apparently genius stylist) kept the look age appropriate with a just-disheveled-enough wavy ponytail and fresh-faced makeup with pretty pink lips and the BEST brow game.

Solange, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, and Zosia Mamet at New York Fashion Week Events.

The celeb crowd attending New York Fashion Week shows and events keeps growing, and we're keeping tabs on all of them. Solange attended the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target event in a navy and black tuxedo jacket—as a shirt!—and tan, abstract animal-print skirt from the collection. She dressed the Target collabo up a bit with tan and clear Givenchy sandals and a studded Fendi clutch. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, both very blonde, seemed more than ready to welcome fall: both were dressed in head-to-toe black. Mary-Kate accessorized with a small, furry bag and cut-out shoes, while Ashley added a monochrome bag and heels with ankle ties. Zosia Mamet hit up the Honor show in a fuchsia-y Honor, duh, dress. She paired the dress with NEON red-and-white Tabitha Simmons for Honor flats #practical. Peep the rest of the celebs hitting up NYFW shows after the jump!

We've got some reallyyyy important news—well, to us, anyway—to discuss this morning, and it involves Pretty Little Liars' very own Shay Mitchell. Sure, we already know the Ontario-born actress is gorgeous. But still! Just LOOK at her brand-new, hot-off-the-presses ELLE Canada cover above and tell us you're not blown away. She absolutely nails that coveted beachy bombshell look, dressed in a colorful criss-cross Peter Pilotto number (the same one Selena Gomez rocked in InStyle!), and sporting mussed-up waves, bold brows, and an orange-red lip. Summer beauty inspiration, anyone?!

It's Upfront season! What in the heck does this mean? Well, it's the time of year when TV networks celebrate which of their shows are returning as well as reveal new shows for their upcoming seasons. If you're a weirdly rabid TV watcher (HI) then this is super happy fun times with surprise pudding and sprinkles on top and even more so when it involves ABC Family. The stars of the network, namely Shailene Woodley of The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Lucy Hale of mega hit Pretty Little Liars, and Chelsea Kane of the upcoming series Baby Daddy were all a part of the happy hoopla and even started their own with the choice to wear pants. We mean trousers. (Same diff, really, but in other parts of the world, "pants" mean something else entirely...Google it.) Still, TROUSERS! With bright colors! This is a new thing, right?

Taylor Swift Honor Dress

It's no secret that standout collars are a huge trend this year (proof: peep the fall NYFW runway), but Taylor Swift threw us for a loop when she stepped out with an illusion Peter Pan neckline on her dress. The nonexistent collar made just as much of statement, and it's not even there! (Is this, like, one of those Magic Eye things but IRL? *cue Twilight Zone theme song*) This girly nude frock is straight from Honor's spring 2012 runway, which featured this thought-provoking neckline on other ensembles. Taylor paired this dress with soft bangs, a low chignon, delicate gold earrings, and matching nude peep-toe slingbacks.

Now that the New York Fashion Week shows are over, we can sit back and survey the week as a larger unit for next season's hottest trends! It appears mixed prints isn't a look that's cooling off any time soon. In fact, judging from this Fall 2012 showing, the wielding of layered patterns is only getting more extreme. Chances are good you've already started dabbling in the idea, but if not, we'll help you figure out a few ways to make the look work.

Remember how daunting colorblocking seemed, like, a year ago? And now you probably concoct bold outfits with the trend in your SLEEP. Once you get over the initial crazy feeling, it's easy to visiualize and craft a deliciously on-trend ensemble. Just like with colorblocking, it's important that all the hues you use fit within the same mood. Rebecca Minkoff mixed a marbled pumpkin knit with goldenrod snakeprint shorts which, in sentence form, sounds insane, but because they're both earthier, Thanksgiving-esque tones, the look is harmonious. Honor paired a thinly striped black and neon lime sweater with a pencil skirt diagonally tiered in exactly the same shades - a fool-proof recipe for flawless print mixing. The always imaginative Anna Sui also went for bold colors, mixing some varied shades of sapphire which may sound like a clashy mess at first, but with the right accessories and head-to-toe commitment, the final product is really fun and striking. Also, a simple hairdo is necessary.

Selects from the Honor Fall 2012 New York Fashion Week show.

For a newcomer, Honor is nailing New York Fashion Week dead like an old pro with this fall 2012 showing. The blossoming name sent silhouettes down the runway that fall directly in step with the latest collections of fashion's powerhouses: longer hemlines, higher necklines, cinched waists on longline torsos, but always with a very Honor-specific spin. Conservative shapes were refreshed with electric hues in cobalt blues, neon limes, and vibrant fuschias. A grip of impressively creative thinking trotted down last night's catwalk, from diagonal intersecting tiers, kaleidoscope prints, and artfully unexpected layering choices. We loved what we saw, and can't wait to watch Honor grow and evolve. Definitely a name we ALL will be keeping our eyes on!

Tonight's People's Choice Awards officially kicked off the whirlwind season of step and repeats, sequins, beading, and major red carpet FASHION. As expected, the fan-driven PCAs coaxed the year's brightest starlets of film, television, and music out in droves. From Lea Michele to Chloë Moretz to Demi Lovato (who were ALL also People's Choice Award winners), the red carpet arrivals glittered with a grip of covetable looks, and these are our top 10 ensembles of the night. Let's go.

Since opulent evening-wear haus Marchesa dressed her at last year's Emmy Awards, Lea Michele opted for the designer again for the PCAs. The Glee star pushed her locks to one side for an asymmetrical old Hollywood 'do with a deep side part, minus the finger waves. The wink to retro beauty was the perfect complement to her stark white '20s Art Deco-inspired beaded fringe dress.

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