When blessed with the body of a Victoria's Secret Angel, one might imagine consistently gallivanting around in microminis and cutoff shorts up to there. Not so for the always-stylish Miranda Kerr, who's given her gams the week off. She's been all about the maxi as of late, stepping out in a long-sleeved printed Skaist Taylor pick with son Flynn and then rocking an off-the-shoulder ruffled navy style for a flirty date-night look. Her most casual combo was a striped dress topped with a denim jacket, perfect for the airport.
Don't fool yourself into thinking the impeccably turned-out street-style stars just woke up in the morning and threw something on — serious planning goes into getting together the greatest possible outfit. To prep, we outlined the pieces we fashion editors would like to have handy come Sept. 5.
The VMAs red carpet can bring with it the jaw-dropping, head-scratching, and all-out outrageous — but we've zeroed in on just the cream of the crop. With thigh-high slits, embellishments, plunging necklines, and sleek silhouettes, this set of five brought their A-game to Brooklyn last night. Taylor Swift channeled Old Hollywood glamour in a sexy, curve-hugging Hervé Léger gown. Jennifer Hudson wowed in a little houndstooth and leather, which she paired with equally posh pointed-toe pumps. Ciara made an entrance in a feather-trimmed Givenchy Haute Couture sheer gown, while Selena Gomez was a knockout in an Atelier Versace number. Shailene Woodley skipped the gown in favor of an on-trend crop top and printed skirt from Emilio Pucci Resort 2014. All of these style setters make red carpet dressing look easy — now comes the hard part: who gets your vote?

Robin Thicke can certainly work any suit, be it classic, quirky, or in tonight's case: striped. Though he looked bold in the graphic pattern, he wouldn't be the first bad boy to catch our eye in the style. We got a serious flashback to Beetlejuice at tonight's VMAs. Storming the stage to join Miley Cyrus, the smooth singer made an entrance while belting "Blurred Lines" in, fittingly, crisp lines and a slim fit. We have to say, we're into the look — and that's a statement we would be willing to repeat three times!
And he wasn't alone in his effort: joining Mr. Thicke in the doppelgänger routine were a few other notable performers. Read on to see who kept him company last night (aside from Miley, that is).
All eyes were on Brooklyn last night — and not just to witness the *NSYNC reunion. Truthfully, we were most excited to see what everyone was wearing, especially since the show usually turns out some of the music industry's wildest fashion moments. This year's crowd didn't disappoint with everything from crop-tops (Miley, we're looking at you!), to a leopard-clad Katy Perry, who chose an Ungaro dress . . . previously worn by Coco Rocha! Head inside to see her, as well as a Versace-loving Selena Gomez, a glammed-up Taylor Swift, a daring Erin Wasson you have to see to believe, and more.
By now, the Wang girl is totally iconic. It's hard to imagine the world without Alexander Wang's vision of the downtown, edgy-cool chick. While urban street style existed before 2007, the California-bred designer took that unmistakable look and refined it into something so insanely chic and wearable that every girl wanted a piece. Whether it's his slouchy denim, killer pebbled-leather bags, or body-con dresses, his creations never fail to impress with a unique brand of It factor. Currently, Alexander Wang is a globally recognized brand while also at the helm of the Balenciaga, where he infuses his aesthetic into the established brand. Take a look back with this runway retrospective of Alexander Wang's relatively short — but unstoppable — career.
Wherever there are rock stars, there are sure to be supermodels. And the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday were no exception. Four of the biggest names in the business — Joan Smalls, Coco Rocha, Chanel Iman, and Erin Wasson — showed up to the event in Brooklyn, and each of them had distinctly different looks on the red carpet.
While Smalls chose a minimal white ensemble from Viktor & Rolf's Fall 2013 collection, Rocha looked tough in a leather jacket by designer Fausto Puglisi, embellished with rhinestones and interesting quilting. Iman chose a much sweeter look, wearing a metallic lace gown with long sleeves and a plunging neckline by J. Mendel. As for Wasson? She wore a long-sleeved dress, too, albeit a sheer one that exposed a lot of skin. Which of these three different looks was your favorite? Tell us in the poll below.
Can't stop, won't stop with the crop tops! Miley Cyrus might have abandoned her signature color palette for the VMAs, but she didn't shy away from her love of skin-flashing looks. She flaunted her toned abs in yet another crop top look, this time from Dolce & Gabbana circa 1992. Her matching top and leggings were both accented by brightly colored rhinestones, and she finished it off with black platforms, a five-strand pearl bracelet, and 100 carats of Lorraine Schwartz diamonds (a necklace, earrings, and rings). It's in line with some of the looks she rocked in the "We Can't Stop" video . . . do you like?

Click on to get inspired, then shop your way to '90s style — no pagers, Walkmans, pogs, or track pants included.
The piece: Rowley Eyewear No. 51
