academy country music awards 2014 best dressed

Oh, country music. No other genre has as many award shows (seriously) but then again, nobody puts on quite a show like the country stars do. And when it comes to the red carpet, it’s an all-out extravaganza. Dressing for a country music awards show is basically like the Grammys meets prom: the bigger the hair, the glitzier the dress, the better. For last night’s Academy Of Country Music Awards there was a lot of glitter, but also a number of totally refined and frankly, unexpected looks.

Taylor Swift seemed to be taking a style note from new BFF Karlie Kloss. Her black and white ensemble by J. Mendel featured a crop top with cut-out detailing and a long skirt complete with thigh-high slit. Swift also departed from her usual shimmery cat-eye makeup with a fierce vibrant blue smoky eye, paired with a coral lipstick applied so perfectly that we did a double take when she came on stage.

With two Grammy awards, a breakout hit and an upcoming beauty collaboration under her belt, Lorde (born Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor) has done more than most dream of at age seventeen. In a year packed with heavy-hitting pop stars returning to the scene, the singer became music’s unlikeliest queen bee, dethroning Miley Cyrus on the charts and sweeping awards season with her first single, “Royals.” With a distinctive love for anything black, Lorde’s style also stood out in looks by Balenciaga, Prada and Chanel.

Your first time at any international fashion week will teach you a valuable lesson: You need a fur. And not just any Margot Tenenbaum style granny hand-me-down. A fur so intricately patterned, multi-layered and artificially coloured, that it has to be designer. Given its place at the apex of the top Fall 2014 trends, you’d think recessionary times were long gone—it’s virtually everywhere, from a hyper colour mink at Altuzarra to a fluffy red dress at Prada. Wear it with caution or as Dior prescribes, dangle it over your arm like it’s no big d. Let the fur fly, scruples or otherwise.

Paris Fashion Week came to a close for Fall 2014 yesterday with the last step strutted down the Hermès runway. With hotly anticipated designer debuts (for the record, Nicolas Ghesquiere knocked it out of the park at Louis Vuitton), celebrity-studded front rows (Rihanna made the rounds), splashy parties and a little luxe grocery shopping thrown in for good measure, it was a week filled with memorable moments. As FASHION‘s market editor, my eye is constantly scanning for the must-have items we’ll want to fill our closets with come fall. In that spirit, here is my Paris-inspired edit of the top 10 pieces to add to your shopping list when ushering in the next season.

As Paris Fashion Week wraps up today, the international fashion circuit comes to a close. But as with all good things, the arguably best shows were saved for last. Or rather the most star studded front rows. At this morning’s Miu Miu Fall 2014 show, every pretty young thing turned up to watch the runway; even Jared Leto and his perfectly coiffed hair made an appearance!

Prada/Miu Miu It girl and newly minted Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o was wore a Spring 2014 ruched pink skirt and cropped jacket with an embellished collar in a deep raspberry shade that complemented her skin tone flawlessly. After reportedly introducing herself to all of her fellow front row-ers (so darn polite!), she pulled out some thick framed tortoise shell glasses to enjoy the show. Bad eyesight be damned. Fellow Miu Miu frontwoman Elle Fanning kept things prim and proper, removing her light blue Miu Miu jacket to reveal a yellow houndstooth sleeveless top and matching blue pleated skirt as she sat for the show.

See both Lupita Nyong’o Oscars looks up-close »

While the Oscars may actually be about the awards, we all know that red carpet glamour is the main reason us fashion gals tune in. While movie critics and fans alike are all talking about Gravity’s production awards sweep and Leo’s latest loss for Best Actor, we still can’t get over how amazing Lupita Nyong’o looked last night. Given her run this past red carpet season, we went into the night knowing she was going to look unreal, but she blew us out of the park on Hollywood’s biggest night

Undeniably the belle of the ball, Nyong’o first wowed on the red carpet in a plunging powder blue Prada gown fit for a Grecian princess. The revealing gown was perfect for the Best Supporting Actress’ slight figure—anyone with too much décolletage would have been falling out of the dress. The deep-V front was mirrored in the back and in the open sides, and the full skirt was enriched with a dusting of crystal beading on the edges of the pleats to add some shimmer. The accessories were kept minimal, as to not over-power the gown, with Fred Leighton ear cuffs, gold wrap bracelet and a crystal and gold Prada Raso clutch.

Miu Miu focuses its ever-prophetic eye on a foursome of rising actresses this season, casting Elle Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen, Bella Heathcote and the most recent apple of fashion’s eye, Lupita Nyong’o, in the just-released Spring 2014 ads. Photographed by Inez and Vinoodh against saturated shades of blue, purple and the brand’s signature deep red, the shots reflect Miuccia Prada’s latest take on pretty-meets-perverse, with each actress dressed to the hilt in bejewelled corsets, wool knee-highs, sixties showgirl boots and swing coats. Whether coquettish (Fanning), lackadaisical (Heathcote), pensive (Olsen) or regal (Nyongo’o), each actress translates the Miu Miu woman as well as has come to be expected from their buzzy on-screen roles. Following a long line of ingénues-turned-megastars like Kirsten Dunst, Chloë Sevigny, Katie Holmes, Lindsay Lohan and most recently Blue is the Warmest Colour leads Léa Seydoux and Adèle Exarchopoulos, we daresay the future’s looking mighty bright.

After a season chock-full of bubblegum runways, the pink trend seems to be holding. With spring in the distant future, bright young things Lea Seydoux and Allison Williams showed how to transition the soft shade into warmer weather, while keeping it age appropriate and stylish.

In London for the announcement of BAFTA’s 2014 Rising Star award, Seydoux wore a mix of designs by Miuccia Prada. The outfit featured a Miu Miu fit-and-flare long-sleeved dress with a minimalist floral print and a sugary pink bejeweled overcoat by Prada. As the current face of Miu Miu, alongside Blue Is The Warmest Colour co-star Adèle Exarchopoulos, she can be expected to don her fair share of modern designs from the quirky Italian designer over the upcoming awards season.
