Style has moved! come with us to mtv news »

If you're anything like us, you love some good behind-the-scenes 411. Like, when I'm looking at Selena Gomez's hair at Oscar parties, I want to know how long that sleek 'do took. Three days or three hours? You could tell me either, and I wouldn't be surprised. Luckily for us, Katie Stevens, the star of MTV's new show Faking It (premiering April 22!) snapped some pictures of her process as she got ready for one such party. We are so in the know now. Join us as we cherish this inside info below!

Katie had the help of hair stylist Jesse Montana to get her 'do ready for the partay. Katie obviously knew selfies were going to be, like, the biggest meme of the night even before the show began. She got a head start on Ellen, Jennifer, Bradley, Jared, Lupita's brother, and everyone else in that photo.

Sure, the Oscars are glamorous and esteemed and a major cultural moment, but I think I'd rather attend an Oscars after-party than the ceremony itself. The casual atmosphere of the post-show bashes is way less "I'd like to thank the Academy" and way more (to quote Matthew McConaughey), "Alright, alright, alriiiiight." We saw some pretty amazing looks on the red carpet last night for sure, but the parties brought out some new fashions that totally reflected the more fun phase of the evening. Check out some of our faves:

LUPITA NYONG'O IN MIU MIU

After winning big last night, Lupita swapped out her princess Prada gown for this flirty Miu Miu dress. The sea foam fringe and buckled straps reminded us of a day spent at the beach—the perfect image for a first-time Oscar winner. Lupita held onto the same jewelry she wore at the ceremony and clutched her new statuette for the entire night (totally what I would do, too).

Sunday night (March 2), the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences doled out awards for excellence in all aspects of film over the past year, sending Jared Leto, Matthew McConaughey, Cate Blanchett, our girl crush Lupita Nyong'o, and many more home toting gilded Oscar statuettes. But L.A.'s Dolby Theatre stage wasn't the only place where people were winning at the 2014 Academy Awards: Hollywood's biggest and brightest stars cleaned up on the red carpet, too. MTV News' Christina Garibaldi, our #shehashadit bestie Jarvis Derrell, and I had a summit of the minds and picked out our favorites.

Taylor Swift, Lorde

You know how when you hang out with someone a lot, you pick up their mannerisms and sayings? It happens to celebrities too! It looks like all the shopping trips/fun girl hang time between Taylor Swift and Lorde have resulted in the exchange of style secrets. Last night, Taylor attended the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in a Julien Macdonald long-sleeved, sequined gown that was reminiscent of the Tom Ford gown her new BFF Lorde wore to perform at the Brits a few weeks ago. While Lorde went for a "red carpet goth" look, Taylor and her new bob went for vampy old Hollywood glamour.

Man oh MAN. Is it just us, or were last night's Academy Awards the best they've been in a long time? We're talking Ellen's ace hosting skills, an amazingly talented batch of winners, and don't even get us started on the red carpet glitz and glamour. The gowns and tuxes were wonderful in all their designer glory, but we couldn't help noticing the A+ accessories and details. Check out some of our favorite style finishing touches of the evening:

EMMA WATSON

Emma Watson was a sparkly masterpiece from head to toe last night. Her metallic Vera Wang dress was mostly responsible for her glittery presence, but her jewelry certainly helped out a LOT. Her diamond ear cuff was the perfect choice for her whole goth-at-the-Oscars vibe, as was the sizable aggregation of rings adoring her fingers. Emma totally could have stepped off the red carpet and into a street fight without having to change her outfit at all, which is pretty much the best kind of transitional fashion.

Zooey Deschanel, Katy Perry

Zooey Deschanel and Katy Perry can’t resist a good throwback. The adorkable queen of retro and the pinup pop star have always had an amazing ability to pull off vintage styles without looking like they just raided the back of their grandma’s closet. For this reason alone, it’s pretty spectacular that it’s taken this long for the pair’s wardrobe to overlap. But it finally happened. Zooey just stepped out in strapless, floral, polka-dotted Oscar de la Renta dress at the annual Vanity Fair Oscar Party—very similar to the one Katy wore to the AMAs back in November.

Zooey’s look was lighter than Katy's—the ruffled tiers gave the dress an airy feel and the softer pastel tulips read as springy, compared to Perry’s gothic rose garden. Fittingly, Zooey went with a low-key beauty look—tousled waves, heavy-handed mascara, and neutral lipstick—and a clean, simple purse.

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.

2014 Oscars

If pictures just aren't cutting your desire to relive the 2014 Academy Awards red carpet, maybe GIFs will do the trick. Watch celebs do things on repeat, for the rest of time. You can pick up their mannerisms and, like, IDK impersonate them at parties (for fun or money). Peep Emma Watson, Jennifer Lawrence, Jared Leto doing their thangs, below!

Yeah, I'd take a lot of selfies if I had ombre as flawless as Jared Leto's.

Pharrell Williams

Pharrell's "Happy" performance at the 2014 Oscars was backdropped with a giant screen of Despicable Me minions wearing their leader's Vivienne Westwood hat. And, perhaps unsurprisingly, Pharrell was wearing the hat again—THE HAT THAT MEMED THE WORLD. Inspired yet again by Malcolm McLaren's "Buffalo Gals" video, but ramped up a bit for the occasion, this time he copped his classic Adidas track jacket in black leather and a crispy, more formal classic black Buffalo crown. Twitter wondered if the sequined kicks on his feet were Red Octobers, but while they did mirror the all-over crimson of Yeezy's feet, we vote no. We're fairly certain he'd never wear Adidas with Nike at the same time, and we see some telltale triple stripes. He did match his mic and earpieces to his footwear, though, with rubied veneers glimmering like jewelry.

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