Selena Gomez, Kelly Rowland

Take notes, ladies. Suspenders are trending, and we can thank Selena Gomez and Kelly Rowland for the latest iteration of the look. Just a few days ago, we spotted Miley Cyrus working the flipped colorway of the very same Chanel suspenders Rihanna wore on the cover of Complex. NOW, we're pitting Sel and Kel and their similarly strapped steez (try saying that three times fast!) against each other. Why two suspenders questions in one week? Because rather than using the accessories for their intended function—holding up your pants as a kind of belt substitute—Gomez and Rowland's are purely decorative, slung from their shoulders and dangling around their hips.

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!

Remember how CBS issued that wardrobe advisory for the 2013 Grammys? Their short blurb of arguably clunky language stumbled over chuckle-worthy dress code edicts like, "Please avoid exposing bare fleshy under curves of the buttocks and buttock crack," and "Please avoid sheer see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples," and quite possibly our personal favorite, "Please be sure the genital region is adequately covered so that there is no visible 'puffy' bare skin exposure." WOWOWOW. *shudders, dry heaves* We're still not totally sure what "puffy" skin is a euphemism for, but there was probably a star on the Grammys red carpet that bunked it since SO many ladies and gents (ex: Rihanna, Katy Perry, Kelly Rowland, deadmau5 just to rattle off a few) knowingly broke the rules. Need a more in-depth breakdown? We can do that for you. LEGGO!

RIHANNA'S SHEER DRESS

Rihanna just finished another performance and wore a severely cropped top that we're sure jump-started so many crossed fingers and toes for a wardrobe malfunction, but it's RiRi's red custom Alaia that first landed her on the dress code offenders list. While beautiful, the one-off gown directly conflicts with the, "Please avoid sheer see-through clothing that could possibly expose female breast nipples," note. We're sure the self-proclaimed bad gal would have one response to that: #phuckyodresscode.

In case your direct-to-brain-from-Beyhive app is broken: rumor has it that when Queen Beyonce plays Super Bowl XLVII this weekend, there will be a special, super-spectacular, long-awaited, brain-detonating performance by Destiny's Child. Should the internet be correct, and should Destiny's Child indeed reunite, you can basically divine their setlist: after Beyonce does her thing, Kelly and Michelle will emerge to fireworks and new song "Nuclear," then they'll bust off a medley of some of their greatest hits, topped off with "Independent Women Part 1," which they must have performed at 365 awards shows during the Year of Charlie's Angels, anno domini. The real stumper is, after more than six years apart...what will they possibly wear? Since their last show together in 2005, they've all done complete style 180s, each going in the direction of higher fashion for their more frequent solo red carpets. (They have also clearly been freed from the girl-group albatross of wearing matching ensembles, racing forth like wild ponies fleeing a burning forest into the life-sustaining clothing racks of their individual personalities. Hallelu, hallelu.)

Hoping for a crystal ball into their potential Superbowl estilo, we spent hours face-deep in YouTube, scouting some of the most memorable costumes the quartet-ternt-trio ever wore live, and breaking them down with our eagle eyes chronologically here. Bonus shadow-styling courtesy Beyonce's mama Tina Knowles, whose manicured hands were in these ladies' boudoirs long before House of Deréon was birthed into the world.

Early DC were ardent aficionados of distressed denim, particularly whilst embellished with rhinestones, embroidery, and creative scissor-work—note in this photo, snapped at London's Hyde Park on New Year's Day 2000, Kelly Rowland's victory-V hem is joined by chopped-off beltloops...because waistlines! Who needs 'em! During the Destiny's Child/The Writing's on the Wall eras, circa '98-'00, they were often set on regular-gal vibes, repping rough-and-tumble home state Texas with workwear like this, while staying true to the strong-woman emittances of their music. Abdominals: it ain't no joke. That said, it's surprising to see LaToya Luckett and Michelle Williams wearing such similar jeans-and-tank-top ensembles, because part of the Destiny's Child mystique, of course, was that they always rocked similar fabrics but wildly different silhouettes. Beyonce's 'Pac bandana tank-top thingamajig is bringing back sharply technicolor memories of the early '00s...when people were prone to wearing (and DIY'ing!) bandana tank-top thingamajigs. #neverforget

Diligent Destiny's Child fans already know that 2012 marks the 15th anniversary of the release of the group's first single "No, No, No" which catapulted DC into household name status. Beyonce announced via her website, that DC would be releasing a commemorative album, called Playlist: The Very Best of Destiny's Child, chock full of tracks from the group's 15 years. Along with pumping out enough hits to secure their spot as one of the biggest girl groups of all time, Destiny's Child was infamous for their seeeeeerious style game. In honor of the past 15 years of Bey, Kelly, Michelle, and yes, Farrah, LaTavia and LeToya, too, we rounded up 15 of DC's iconic looks. Check 'em all out after the jump and just TRY not to get nostalgic.

Pretty sure we have Gwen Stefani to thank for the '90s bindi trend, but that doesn't mean we'll ever forget the quadruple wink at Mumbai fashion.

The 54th annual Grammy Awards were full of sparkle and spectacle despite the somber mood in the air with the passing of a Grammy legend. While there were no arrivals in alien eggs or dresses made out of intestinal linings (#ew), what was on offer this year was nothing short of pure red carpet class. We're talking designer dresses—predominantly in black and white—accents of gold, lace, plunging necklines, delicate appliqueé, and a giant mouse head. Here are our choices for Best Dressed of the night.

JESSIE J IN JULIEN MACDONALD

Top Grammy Looks

Ladies and gentlemen, Jessie J turned it OUT. Arriving on the bright red carpet wearing a silver Julien Macdonald gown made of a cotillion of small squares, the hourglass silhouette gave her a modernized old Hollywood feel. Macdonald was the former head designer of Knitwear at Chanel, and he has a knack for creating futuristic feminine designs. This particular dress was a perfect choice for Jessie, and with her slicked-back ponytail, blunt bangs, clavicle-dusting tresses, a mermaid hem, and jet black Lulu Guinness clutch tucked into her palm, she was a shimmering triumph.

Lady Gaga, Jessie J, and Kelly Rowland

Thanksgiving is next week, which means immediately following the turkey-centric feasting and rampant gluttony, holiday season will be in FULL, unbridled, tinsel-faux-snow-laden swing. Brace yourselves now for the glitter, the jingle-jangle, the shopping stampedes, and of course, all red everything. From the looks of the backstage red carpet at last night's Children in Need Rocks Manchester charity concert, Lady Gaga, Jessie J, and Kelly Rowland are getting a head start on the holiday color wave.

Well folks, it's been another year and yet another entertaining (and STYLE CRAZY!!!) VMAs. Seriously, what other awards show gives you a giant, yellow cube hat, a Ralph Macchio look-a-like, and a surgical mask as the accessory du jour? We don't mean to breathe on our Minx Nails and shine them languidly on our hypothetical METALLIC LEOPARD SEQUIN blogging gown, but we're pretty proud of all of the celebs who truly brought it this year. We don't know about you, but it felt like a PARTY (a sparkly, cat-eyed, Minnie Mouse party) out on that red—er, black—carpet, and we had a hard time narrowing down our STYLE FAVES to just 10 SHOWSTOPPERS. You see, in our no-rulez book, EVERYONE'S a WINNER, buuuuut, we picked 10 anyway. Thus, without further ado, we present our OUTFITS OF THE NIGHT!

BEYONCE

Newly announced mommy-to-be Beyoncé glowed in a fiery one-shoulder Lanvin gown that showed off a more regal side to Bey. Her effortless side pony and simple accessories were absolute PERFECTION against her bold dress. But we're sure Jay-Z already knew that.

KATY PERRY

Katy Perry took a bit of Asian influence with her to the VMA red carpet! She wore a springy floral blue, pink, and yellow Atelier Versace frock, hot pink strappy Jimmy Choo sandals, and a matching parasol, which made her freshly dyed pink hair POP.

Kelly Rowland will be the face of Diddy's fragrance 'Empress.'

Kelly Rowland has not done bad for herself. Sure, Beyoncé is the superstar that immediately comes to mind in the post-Destiny’s Child world, but Miss Rowland has solidified her songstress legacy with a steady string of hits. We still jam to her and Nelly’s “Dilemma” on the regular, and she and Lil’ Wayne sound on point in her newest single (plus she is making headlines with her just-announced tour with VMA performer Chris Brown). Suffice to say, her collaboration game is up to snuff, and her newest project—being the face of Diddy’s newest women’s fragrance, “Empress.”

Set to release this month in Macy’s the light, citrus fragrance is perfect for the winding days of summer. The scent comes in a formidable and regal bottle, which is what Kelly suggests the fragrance is all about. “I just love what Empress represents,” Kelly gushed on Access Hollywood. “It’s just women that are beautiful and powerful in their own right.” Meant to be the lady counterpart to Diddy’s own “I Am King” cologne, the new Sean John ambassadress appears to be, like her old bandmate, a girl who is certainly running the world.

The 2011 BET Awards BROUGHT IT in terms of the top summer trends crossing the green carpet. We spotted four must-try looks (harem pants, treated/printed denim, leather, and super girly summer dresses) on some of our faves, but we had one hell of a hard time choosing a winner for each. Luckily, we have YOU. We've paired up each celeb in a killer style showdown, and a winner MUST be chosen. So, if you have a favorite look for each trend, SPILL IT IN THE COMMENTS!

WHO WORE PLEATED HAREM PANTS BEST: ALICIA KEYS OR KERI HILSON?

Singers Alicia Keys and Keri Hilson both rocked pleated black harem pants, but each lady individualized her look with to-die-for accessories. Alicia's black and white Dolce & Gabbana ensemble oozed simple and chic, but she added a touch of fun with zebra print Christian Louboutin pumps, suspenders, and a spiraling fishtail braid. Keri accented her royal purple and black strapless Tibi jumpsuit with a bold emerald green pendant necklace, GIANT cuffs, and open-toed shoes. Who do you think won this fashion face-off?

WHO ROCKED DENIM BETTER: JUSTIN BIEBER OR JADEN SMITH?

The boys looked SO COOL rocking fun and interesting denim on the green carpet! We loved Justin Bieber's '80s throwback acid-wash jean vest paired with a black tee and metallic silver jeans with some seriously detailed stitching. He accessorized with a multicolored handkerchief, skull necklace, tortoiseshell sunglasses, a large watch, bracelets, and high-top polka dot sneakers. Jaden Smith went the more colorful route in a personalized red and orange leather "JS" MCM letterman jacket, graphic tee, and (the best part, obvi) tiger printed jeans. Not only do we feel like we NEED animal print jeans immediately, but we sort of love the high-tops he paired with his tiger stripes even more.

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