The Met Gala is the one event that has been known for celebrities attempting to one-up each other for the best red carpet looks. It's held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC, so it's completely understandable why this red carpet event would encourage more 'artistic' fashion looks. Every year, there's a theme based on an exhibit at the museum, and this year the attire is based on the exhibit, "China: Through the Looking Glass," which is all about the country's influence on Western fashion. Sounds like a fashion night to remember to us! And, it certainly was.
The red carpet fashion went to the extreme, like Sara Jessica Parker's fiery red headdress, but also kept things simple and classy, like Lorde's long sleeve velvety blue gown. One of our favorite looks of the night met somewhere in between: Miley Cyrus' dress! Miley has been known for her more controversial looks, but lately at red carpet events, she's been choosing some very classy looks with just the right amount of edge, and we think her Met Gala dress walks that fine line perfectly.
Miley wore an Alexander Wang dress with stunning crystals throughout, a high neckline, long sleeves, and deep cutouts that showed off the curves of her body. While we wouldn't recommend such a deep cutout dress for anyone but celebrities trying to make a statement on the Met Gala red carpet, the cutouts did balance out well with the long sleeves and high neckline.
For a similar sparkly side cutout look with long sleeves and a high neckline to balance it all out, go with Jovani 24039. Not only does it feature all the major points of the Miley Cyrus Met Gala 2015 dress, but it's got two extra details to bring the whole look together: a keyhole opening and a beautiful crystal adornment at the waist of the dress. It's definitely a dress that's not only worthy of prom, but of any red carpet event!
The Grammys 2015 Red Carpet were full of so many unique looks this year! From Kim Kardashian's golden plunging dress (bath robe?), to Gwen Stefani's funky jumpsuit, to Taylor Swift's high-low dress, the looks spanned the spectrum this year. All of the looks were incredible, but there four celebrity outfits, in particular, that we are obsessing over because they are also perfect looks for Prom! Check our favorite celebrity Grammys outfits below, and how you can rock them for Prom 2015.
As everyone knows, Miley Cyrus is known for her daring, provocative looks. So, we were pleasantly surprised to see her dressed in an elegant black gown on the Grammys 2015 red carpet. Her black gown featured cut-outs all along the side of the dress, making it the perfect combination of sexy and classic.
Cut-outs are very on-trend right now, so this is one look that's super easy to copy for prom. Get her v-neck look with large side cut-outs with Sparkle 71454. It's a jersey gown with beaded halter straps that extend to criss cross the open back. Beaded trim accents the waistline to create side cut-outs, and a side slit and small sweep train finish off this sexy look.
For slightly smaller cutouts and a more simple, classic look, go with La Femme 21160. It's an elegant net jersey dress with a gathered bodice and cutout straps that connect in back.
Ariana is always all about looking cute, bubbly, and girly... and basically... perfect. Of course, the 2015 Grammy Awards red carpet was no exception! She looked like an elegant princess in her one shoulder white gown and signature pony tail.
Rock a white one shoulder gown with some sparkle like Ariana with Blush 9780. Beaded illusion rocks in this sophisticated, yet alluring dress. Sexy jewels rock this one-shoulder as it flows into a stunning sheer back. Another band of illusion diagonally drapes your figure creating a brilliant dance column.
For a more flowy white one shoulder gown with a touch of silver sparkle, go with Jovani 6919. It's a one shoulder chiffon gown with a sweetheart neckline and jeweled embellishments at the waist and neck.
From music to fashion, at 56 years old, Madonna is still always about doing her own thing, and this year's Grammys proves it! The musician had all eyes on her as she confidently walked the Grammys red carpet in a short and sexy black lace and nude number.
Lace is one of the big Prom 2015 trends, and Madonna wore the trend like none other! To bring elements of her black lace and nude look into your prom or other formal event outfit, we especially love Tony Bowls TS11467. It's a strapless dress with slightly curved neckline, deep center V with illusion inset, boned bodice with lace appliques, and lace covered slim skirt. We especially love how this cocktail dress incorporates the corset look from Madonna's outfit!
To get Madonna's look with a little bit of fringe, we love Hanna S 27912. It's a strapless sweetheart Venice lace cocktail dress with heat set stone on the bodice and an Ostrich feather skirt. This is a great option to go a little more more on the fun and flirty side of Madonna's look!
To get Madonna's Grammys look in a more traditional long prom gown, go with Panoply 14659. It's a two piece short dress with a top that has cord beaded lace appliques on nude lining with an illusion nude neckline. The separate skirt has a satin waistband, and a corded beaded lace appliqued short skirt with a removable tulle back flounce skirt. This dress lets you go short and sexy like Madonna, or long and elegant on-the-go!
Last, but certainly not least, Tay! Taylor Swift is always a red carpet favorite, and the 2015 Grammys was no exception. She looked Taylor perfect in her ombre teal high-low gown! We especially loved how she matched the bold colored dress with even bolder pink heels! What a perfect color combo!
To get some green/blue ombre like Tay in your prom dress, go with La Femme 19467. It's a stunning sweetheart dress with a tiered high low skirt and ombre dyed fabric. The bodice features criss cross ruching and small iridescent stones trimming the neckline.
For more of a halter style top with an over skirt like Taylor's dress, check out Sherri Hill 9743. This sexy two piece dress features a chunky beaded bodice with a choker style neckline and a short beaded skirt with a soft chiffon over skirt.

One of the most popular award shows is just around the corner, but it isn't the one where big speeches are made and tears are shed. Instead, it is the show of laughs and fun, and where coveted trophies of "Moonmen" are given out. Yes, the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards will be on August 24th, and the nominees have officially been announced! This year's nominees include some awesome collaborations, as well as your favorite and pretty expected musicians! We are hoping the show will be a blast, but as far as the nominees go, there are no major surprises, just super hits!
The 2014 VMAs nominees for Best Video of the Year include Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX for "Fancy," Beyoncé ft. JAY Z for "Drunk In Love," Pharrell Williams for "Happy," Sia for "Chandelier," and Miley Cyrus for her outstanding hit "Wrecking Ball."
The top ladies in music who continue to take the world by storm include Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX with her hit "Fancy," which is also nominated for Best Female Video. Iggy is nominated twice in the category for Best Pop Video for "Fancy" and her collaboration with Ariana Grande in "Problem." Ms. Grande is also nominated twice for "Problem" having a shot at Best Female Video as well. Way to go ladies! Beyonce, Lorde, and Katy Perry also join in the category for having nods for Best Female Video! Should be a very close vote in this category and we can't wait to see who the winner is!
One of the more interesting categories announced was for Best Video with a Social Message. We love this category because it honors the artist not only for his or her musical talent, but for spreading a positive word to young people everywhere. The 2014 VMA nominees for this category are Angel Haze ft. SIA with "Battle Cry," Avicii with "Hey Brother," Beyoncé with her song "Pretty Hurts," J. Cole ft. TLC and "Crooked Smile," Kelly Rowland with "Dirty Laundry," and David Guetta ft. Mikky Ekko with the song "One Voice."
We loved the awesome collaborations that took place this year and we are really looking forward to see which artists will bring home the Moonman for Best Collaboration of the Year. It is tricky when one artist is great, but when they pair up with someone else amazing they really create phenomenal music! Will Ariana Grande ft. Izzy Azalea beat out Katy Perry ft. Juicy J. and "Dark Horse?" Or what about Beyonce ft. Jay Z for "Drunk in Love?" How will we ever tell? All we know is the show is going to be great and we are counting down the days to see the fashion, performances, and unexpected!

Even though we have seen many types of "promposals" this season, we must say the story of Matt Peterson asking Miley Cyrus to be his prom date takes the cake! Matt, a mega fan of Miley, got the chance of a lifetime to meet the star when she picked him out of a group of screaming fans in a parking lot and asked him to join her on a local radio show. For Matt, it was love at first sight, and since the meet and greet Matt says Miley has changed his life. In order to repay her, Matt was determined to take the singer to his prom and show her a night she would never forget. To do so, he created a video, which may be the cutest and most daring "promposal" yet!
Even though the caring star would have loved to be Peterson's prom date, due to scheduling conflicts with her Bangerz concert tour, she was unable to accept the invitation. However, Miley did offer quite the consolation prize and invited Matt to her Arizona concert! Super excited for the show, Matt created his own unique prom "tuxedo" covered in 162 iron-on pictures of Miley's tongue, which she loves to stick out when posing for the paparazzi. Impressed with Matt's efforts, Miley gave him the real prom experience by creating prom style photos and inviting him on stage! She ended the evening by serenading Matt with her song "Adore You." We are so impressed with Miley's energy and passion for her beloved fan, and so is Matt! If you ask him..."She was the nicest person. I thought I was in love with her before—she's the most amazing person." Way to go, Matt, for taking the chance on a super star..and Miley for possibly being the best prom date ever!

Yup, that's right, Miley Cyrus finally wore an outfit that's perfect for fashionistas everywhere! Rather than wearing those scantily clad outfits Miley has become known for, she showed up at the 30th Annual Night of Stars in a totally stunning sequin gown! Don't get too shocked - she still showed off some skin with the gown's open back, but all in all it was a totally glam AND chic look!
From the sparkly green dress to the red mani, Seventeen Magazine thought it was a perfect look for prom, and they couldn't be more right! Seventeen said:
"A straight but not-too-form-fitting style covered in sequins is seriously flattering, plus, the shape makes all-over sparkle feel less frilly."
The above picture that they made showed how you can get the look. And, what dress did they choose to steal Miley's style? Faviana style 6711, of course! The silver version of this dress was our Dress of the Week back in April because it was so similar to a gown that Taylor Swift wore, but now it's our Dress of the Week to get a Miley Cyrus look-alike style! It's a sequin evening gown with mesh straps and a sexy open back.
When it comes to the makeup, Seventeen said:
"To make green eyeshadow like Miley's wearable, pick a pale seafoam shadow, and stick to black liquid liner and mascara so the look stays glam. Keep the rest of your makeup neutral with a pale peachy blush and a nude lipgloss. Don't forget your bright red nail polish!"

Miley Cyrus and her older half-sister Brandi Cyrus stunned all as a matching duo at the 2013 American Music Awards this past weekend, because they were both looking so sheek in white! Miley Cyrus may be the star of the past few months, and she did look so lovely in her white suit, but we're so in love with Brandi's long sleeve cocktail dress.
White has been so in this year, and people will be wearing it well into the colder months. And, Miley and Brandi definitely wore the trend perfectly! But, Brandi's look had us thinking of the Holidays, because her short number is definitely a perfect look for not only the AMAs red carpet, but for a Holiday party, too!
If you want to wear this look to your Holiday event this year, we have so many white long sleeve cocktail dresses to choose from. Below are two of our favorites!
Precious Formals style L9034 is a fun way to add a little glam to a white cocktail dress look like Brandi's. Silver groups of sequins accent the body, scoop neckline and sheer long sleeves of this chic-and-flirty dress.
Shail K. style KK3138 is just like Brandi's dress, just with a deep v-neck and 3/4 sleeves. It's an easy look to dress up with bold jewelry and sparkly heels, or keep toned down with simple accessories.

This is the Week (and month) of Miley Cyrus! Just a few days ago, her new album, Bangerz, was made available on iTunes for free streaming, and last night was the premiere of her MTV documentary Miley: The Movement. All we have to say, is we watched it and LOVED it.
The documentary gave such great insight into this pivotal moment in her life and career, where she is trying to re-shape her sound and image. She talks about what it's like growing up as the daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus and having music in her blood, and what that means for her moving forward. It also goes into great detail depicting what went into putting together her controversial VMA performance.
We especially loved her response to all the hype that came from the performance. Here's some of our favorite parts from her comments:
"You're always going to make people talk; you might as well make them talk for like two weeks. We've been laughing about all of the news because everyone's so serious...If I really wanted to come out as a raunchy sex show, I wouldn't have been dressed up as a damn bear."
So true! Another comment of hers that we loved was:
"I feel lucky that I don't have to fit in...If you can't express yourself, you're not very free."
We can definitely agree with that! Miley is definitely being herself, and that is something to be proud of.
If you didn't get to catch the premiere last night, there will be many re-runs on MTV. They will also be showing a special 90 minute version with extra footage this coming Sunday, October 6th, so don't miss out! You can watch the trailer here:
Snippets of Miley Cyrus' new album, entitled Bangerz, have been dropping all weekend, and now the whole album is streaming for FREE on iTunes! The album was made available to stream on September 30th, 4 days before the album will be available in stores to purchase.
The album definitely shows Miley leaving behind her Disney Channel Hannah Montana days and connection to her dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, as a country singer, but we're totally loving it! From her VMAs performance to her new "Wrecking Ball," music video, there's certainly been a lot of hype surrounding her new "bad girl" image. And, to answer all the ridicule, Miley said in the MTV documentary Miley: the Movement, "I just needed to let go of the past in a way, so I felt like I could be the bad b---h I am." All we can say is rock on to that!
In conjunction with Mike WiLL Made It as the partial producer of the album, Miley has a completely new sound, so it's great to get to listen to it before the album hits stores. It's an emotionally driven album, with Miley already revealing that one song, "Drive," was written during a difficult time. She told FASHION Magazine, "I wrote it while I was working on Valentine's Day. Emotionally it was such a hard time. It is about needing to leave someone but not really wanting to completely cut yourself off from the relationship. It’s a time when you want to leave but you can’t. It's about moving on."
Here’s the full list of the songs on the Bangerz album:
1. “Adore You”
2. “We Can’t Stop”
3. “SMS (Bangerz),” featuring Britney Spears
4. “4×4,” featuring Nelly
5. “My Darlin’,” featuring Future
6. “Wrecking Ball”
7. “Love Money Party,” featuring Big Sean
10. “FU,” featuring French Montana
11. “Do My Thang”
12. “Maybe You’re Right”
13. “Someone Else”
14. “Rooting for my Baby”
15. “On My Own”
16. “Hands in the Air,” featuring Ludacris
