Style has moved! come with us to mtv news »

While the People's Choice Awards may have ~officially~ kicked off the 2014 awards season, tonight's Golden Globes really catapulted the year of red carpet fashion into high gear. We pulled out six well-heeled ladies from the 2014 PCAs, but now, we're bringing you a list of 10 for the Globes (though, TBH, we were tempted to just crown Lupita Nyong'o THE best dressed and go home, because girl SHUT IT DOWN).

I mean, do I really need to explain this decision? The 12 Years A Slave actress showed up EARLY to the Golden Globes red carpet wearing Ralph Lauren, and even well before most of the attendees arrived, she had clinched her position as the best dressed lady of the night. It's solid but not boring thanks to that almost-neon red hue. It's body-conscious without looking grossly painted on, and those classic RL clean lines are softened by her warm, beaming smile. With its straight off-the-shoulder neckline and long cape, the gown is definitely fashion forward, but this is also 100% the kind of timeless ensemble that we'll be looking back fondly on for YEARS. (P.S. If this is what she pulls out for the Globes, we can't WAIT to see what she whips out for the Oscars.)

Dads: notoriously hard to shop for. Luckily, this holiday season, those rumors that Jay Z might to team up with Barneys are true! AND Hov asked some of his fave designers to design exclusive pieces for his "New York Holiday" collection. So long, ties! See ya, shaving kits! Hello, Balmain scarves and Balenciaga leather backpacks. Jay tapped a number of high fashion labels including Lanvin, Rick Owens, Proenza Schouler, and Acne to design pieces in a black, white, gold, and silver color scheme. Subtle, but shiny. Jay also designed some collection pieces, including watches timepieces, and a cigar box humidor.

Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth stepped out together on a red carpet last night for the first time in over a year, to promote Liam's new movie, Paranoia. The last time this happened was last year when the couple attended the Australians In Film Awards & Benefit Dinner. Miley wore a long-sleeve, black, cutout Zimmermann dress, and for Liam: a black Ermenegildo Zegna suit. They were newly engaged and looked almost too young to even know what marriage was—Miley had a blonde bob, and Liam was clean shaven and evening casual in an semi-unbuttoned suit shirt with no tie. Fast-forward a year and my, oh my, how things have changed.

Proenza Schouler Fall 2013

Looks from the Proenza Schouler fall 2013 New York Fashion Week show on Feb. 13.

Every season when Proenza Schouler's show rolls around, we always get pumped to see Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez's astounding asymmetrical pieces, and this year was no different. They decided to do the total opposite to the bold and bright pieces they showed for spring 2013 by completely sucking ALL the color out of their fall 2013 line. The models were sent down the runway in super unsaturated hues of light blue, mint green and pink tossed in with tons of crisp white and solid black. We loved how they combined a '60s silhouette of broad, round-shouldered jackets with futuristic fabrics. Some of our favorite looks from the collection included a new take on the traditional wrap dress, which left part of the shoulder peeking through the top of the frock.

Taylor Swift Elle

Only about 12 hours after Taylor Swift nabbed a Grammy for her Hunger Games track "Safe and Sound" and got the internet talking about her opening performance of "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," we have even MORE news about the pop star for you: she's the new ELLE cover girl! Taylor fronts the magazine's March issue in a '60s-inspired dress by Louis Vuitton, looking the every bit the part of a mod style icon with blunt bangs, kohl-rimmed eyes and major lashes. Oh, and while it might SEEM like the frock is sheer underneath the yellow checks, upon further inspection it's evident that this cocktail dress is lined with a nude slip. We know Taylor's been branching off into deep-plunge neckline and cutout territory, but we don't think she would be scandalous enough to pull a Rihanna quiteeee yet. This retro cover look is one of many Tay rocks in the eclectic spread, which covers the style spectrum from punk (pink hair!) to bohemian to classically girly. See more after the jump!

Katy Perry performing at the Kids Inaugural Concert, and then at the inauguration ceremony.

We're so into the way Katy Perry stans for President Obama. There are many celebs who will ride for our newly sworn-in Commander-In-Chief, but are any of them rocking custom latex ballot dresses and attending EVERY event of the inauguration? No, just Katy. Having closely followed her time on the president's campaign trail we were eagerly awaiting Katy's inaugural weekend looks, and were CRUSHED when more of them weren't easily accessible to us online. Luckily, Vogue had our back, and linked up with Katy to publish her Inauguration weekend photo diary. Not only does it let us see candid shots of her custom stars and stripes bustier (which she designed HERSELF, along with stylist extraordinaire Johnny Wujek), but also her amazing Rodarte Inauguration ceremony coat, Oscar De La Renta performance dress, Dolce & Gabbana White House After-Party CAPE, AND her custom Kimmie Kyees patriotic nails. Ah-May-Zing. The photos really do make us feel like an insider, and of course possess that signature KP humor.

Leather Overalls

Given the skyrocketing trend status of leather and overalls as individual fashion things, we had a feeling, deep at the bottom of our gold-plated hearts, that these mammothly head-turning style elements would soon join forces. Nasty Gal, one of our go-to e-retailers, featured them prominently on Australian model Bambi Northwood-Blythe for their December look book, and while this was the first thing to REALLY get our gears turning on the full-body statement piece, this is definitely not the only, or even the first, instance of this eyebrow-raising style.

It's official, y'all! This Spring 2013 New York Fashion Week hath decreed it: warm-weather leather is officially a thing. While it seems impractical given the material's luxurious thickness and the season's sticky humidity, when has that stopped us before? Like, when was the last time any podiatrist cosigned a pair of HEELS? And yet, year-round fashion staple right thurr. *dusts hands off* The recent surge in the use of this fabric versus those more breathable, like, say, cotton, raises a few questions, namely whether it has anything to do with the price of cotton and/or consumers being more willing to spend a premium on leather over other materials. But we can't deny that it also just looks reeeeeally badass. The dudes, I guess, have known that for a while (remember Kanye West's debut Paris Fashion Week show? That makes a LOT more sense now), but this past week has confirmed that the leather (or leather-look!) steez is a definite do in MULTIPLE iterations for the coming spring and summer.


Leather, New York Fashion Week

The easiest way to get away with the leather trend is probably in the form of a leather dress. Our girl Joan Smalls gave it the stamp of approval, wearing a quilted Balmain version for her House of Style co-host announcement, and now we've seen it on the Spring 2013 runways of Jason Wu, Mandy Coon, and Alexander Wang. In dress form, you get the epidermal freedom of an open shoulder, arms that can breath, and depending on the cut, maybe even a little ventilation from an A-line skirt. The Wang version is especially ideal because the cut-outs provide that much more air circulation.

You guyyysss, New York Fashion Week is almost over. :( This means we won't get to spot some of our favorite celebs at shows from mere seats away or get to see them mingling with the commoners at presentations. HRMPH. While we're sad to see it end, we have to admit that yesterday's shows were certainly star-studded! Florence Welch showed off her typically stylish self at Proenza Schouler's spring 2013 show. She wore a fall 2012 chinoiserie-style wrap jacket and skirt ensemble paired with tie platform booties, a black clutch, and tons of stacked gold rings. She kept her makeup minimal, and let her GORGE hair color do all the talking.

Proenza Schouler

At first glance, a lot of the looks from Proenza Schouler's Spring 2013 New York Fashion Week show don't necessarily smack of warm weather. Sure, the colors are vibrant and the photo prints are definitely hallmark "summertime scenes" (beachy coastlines, lush greenery, an over-crowded neighborhood pool, and of course, herds of tourists lapping up their vacation days #TimesSquare), but if the long hems and leather on leather are making us sweat just LOOKING at them in early September, how are these pieces going to feel come next July?? Well, slow your roll, guys, because the Proenza Schouler design duo didn't win two CFDA awards for nothing. These guys are fashion geniuses and evidently beat us to the summer heat punchline, giving their atypical summer garments their own stealth ventilation system.

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