Katy Perry's Jeremy Scott Cowgirl Outfit at Last Night's ACM Awards Was a Major Surprise

The fact that Katy Perry went totally thematic in Jeremy Scott Couture at last night's Academy of Country Music Awards wouldn't have been a surprise a year ago, but now? We were wow'ed. After all, the popstar kicked off the year at the Golden Globes in a supremely elegant pink Prada gown—so not her usual. It was the handiwork of celebrity stylist Leslie Fremar, a go-to name when stars want to revise or upgrade their style image (she was the woman who encouraged Reese Witherspoon to try black!).

"What I do is simple and pared-down. It's thoughtful, but it's not eccentric," she said, adding that for Perry, "it was about making it simple." We assumed the new look meant that funky, playful Perry would be left to arena stages around the world, while a more sophisticated, grown-up version would grace the red carpet. In other words, her days of dressing like a Disney princess were over.

Well, rewind that because we're back to kooky Katy. Moreover, she did it twice last night, wearing Jeremy Scott for both the carpet and a performance alongside Dolly Parton. We're definitely into having fun with fashion, but are still registering surprise that the new look didn't stick. Clues to the slip back to a costume approach might be found in an interview Fremar gave after the Globes, leading us to wonder if Perry 2.0 will be reserved for times when her artistry isn't on display. "You want to be respectful...you're there honoring people's work," she said of the restrained Prada. From here on out, we're expecting refined Perry for non-music industry events and all sorts of flair for appearances that focus on her as a singer.

Other red-carpet news we've found fascinating? Listen to Jennifer Garner explain how they more or less move your organs around to accommodate certain gowns.

7 Times Celebrities Dressed Like Disney Princesses on the Red Carpet

Even celebrities aren't immune to the nostalgic pull of Disney princesses. With the world's most exquisite gowns at their disposal and stylists ready to create looks inspired by anything they desire, it's surprisingly common to see stars go back to the fairytale heroines who influenced our elementary-school sartorial choices (just ask North West, who's made it clear that Frozen's Elsa, not mom Kim Kardashian, is her ultimate fashion inspo). From all the princess-esque gowns we've seen on the red carpet, these are the ones we think are most like the real deal.

Wearing Marchesa at the Met Gala in 2014, Katie Holmes was seriously channeling Belle's most regal moment from Beauty and the Beast.

Back in 2012 Princess Jasmine was the inspiration for Maria Menounos' Maria Lucia Hohan Oscars gown. Sure, it's not a harem pant and crop top, but the color and flowing fit looked ready for a magic carpet ride.

The sparkle of Kendall Jenner's Calvin Klein Collection dress—worn to last year's Met Gala—gave us magical mermaid tale like The Little Mermaid's Ariel. If there was a peekaboo purple bra moment, she'd be her dry-land twin.

Icy blue with sparkles? Watch out, North—Katy Perry was encroaching on your Princess Elsa territory with the custom Giorgio Armani dress she chose for a Grammys' after-party in 2014.

For a Cannes premiere in 2011, Fan Bingbing picked the unusual lime hue that Princess Tiana wore in The Princess and the Frog. Her Oscar de la Renta was missing the Disney style's tiara and flower accent, but it's easy to imagine them there.

Celebs Strike These 5 Poses to Get Their Most Flattering Pictures

When you were checking out the red-carpet coverage from Sunday's Oscars, did you happen to notice some similarities between how the stars were posing? The arrangement of a-list arms and legs is always calculated—celebs know what will look best in photos. Thankfully, red-carpet photographer Dave Bennett was kind enough to break the most popular looks down. Study up and pull them out for your most flattering shots the next time you're in front of the camera (red carpet most definitely not required).

Look 1: The Teapot

There's purpose behind this seemingly casual hand-on-hip look, namely that it shifts the planes of the body just enough to make for a camera-friendly shape and proportions. "Very few people can be photographed straight on and look amazing," he explained. "You want to see a defined waist and hips. Putting a hand on the hip and elongating one leg is a way of creating that."

Look 2: The Clutch Hold

If you're posing with a bag, the number one rule is to avoid letting the accessory be the focal point. "The most important thing is stand tall. Don't look as though you're trying to hide behind it and don't let it outshine the dress," Bennett said. For stars on the red carpet, this means keeping a minaudière to the side in a money shot (not obstructing a clear view of the designer gown), but it translates easily into real life. Getting your picture snapped while you're carrying a top-handle or have a cross-body on? Make sure both are to your side, not directly in front

Look 3: The Over-the-Shoulder Glance

Lupita Nyong'o at the Hollywood premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in December
This maneuver is most often utilized to show off dresses with gorgeous backs, but stars trot it out for normal looks too. "Twisting at the waist creates a really nice angle. It's a way of being sexy or coquettish without actually exposing too much," Bennett said. Try it yourself regardless of what you're wearing.

Look 4: The Leg Flash

One of the sexier red-carpet poses, this option is good for showing off the construction of a dress, with the extended leg confirming that, yup, that super-high slit is a steamy feature of the dress, not a wardrobe malfunction. If you're being photographed in a unique garment, play with positions that'll show off the piece's best features (and do like stars: You know they're using a few pieces of expertly placed double-stick tape to ensure nothing extra is exposed).


Look 5: The Twirl

Lily James at the London premiere of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies in January
This romantic, fashion-friendly look is actually one photogs ask for. "This is something photographers have created should the potential picture be a bit dull," Bennett revealed. "We'll ask the actress something like, 'Will you give it some movement?' and then she'll swish the dress a bit. If there's a split, then you'll see the leg and you can better see the shape of the dress as well." No ballgown, no problem: If you're in a voluminous top, dress, or skirt, have some fun with it when you're taking a pic. Chances are it'll make for a fun image.

Meet the Woman Stars Turn to for the Finest Jewelry to Sparkle at the Oscars

At this very moment, legions of Hollywood stylists are in a tizzy finalizing their A-lister clients' looks for Sunday's Academy Awards. But when it comes to the opinions that matter, the very best of them turn to a woman whose taste is so exquisite and profile so discreet (no Instagram account documenting behind the scenes on Oscar day here) that she has earned the trust of many of the most fashionable stars themselves.

The jewelry doyenne of choice for Sarah Jessica Parker, Nicole Kidman, and Common (yes, Common!) is Fred Leighton's Rebecca Selva.

Meet the Woman Stars Turn to for the Finest Jewelry to Sparkle at the Oscars
Rebeca Selva in "Aladdin's Cave", a.k.a, Fred Leighton on Madison Avenue in New York City.

If you haven't heard of Selva, that's just as well with her. As chief creative officer and public relations director of esteemed jeweler, Fred Leighton, she keeps the focus on the blindingly gorgeous antique jewels (which, in all fairness, pretty darn hard to ignore). That grapefruit-sized brooch of pave diamond-encrusted flowers? The Bellperron citrine, amethyst, and diamond cuff? The antique diamond headband with pretty grosgrain ribbon ties? It's all quite drool-worthy. With a background in art history and 23 years of dwelling in "Aladdin's Cave" as Selva lovingly refers to Leighton's Madison Avenue boutique, stars get to try on more just than pretty things—they're truly works of art. "Every piece is a story," said Selva. "They're little 3-D objets d'art. We talk about each piece and what makes it special. The same way we work with stylists or editors, we try to curate for a client and introduce them to this. Once they're in, they're hooked."

Selva is a pioneer in the industry, as one of the first to loan celebrities jewelry for major red carpet events. "It all started when we got a call from Prada [more than a decade back]," regaled Selva of prepping for the 1996 Oscars. "She was dressing Nicole Kidman for the Oscars and she wanted to see opal pieces for Miss Kidman. She ended up wearing a 19th century necklace and you couldn't take your eyes off her."

Prada and Selva's collaboration that fateful Oscar night prompted celebs to up the fashion and jewelry ante that night, spurring stars not simply to borrow major ice, but the wearable works of art that Fred Leighton is a haven for. The jewelry does not simply "finish" the red carpet look, the piece a star wears very much establishes the look and, often, makes it iconic. You'll recall Charlize Theron's jaw-dropping tangerine Vera Wang gown with antique diamond dress clips in 2000. "Vera actually designed that dress around those clips," Selva told us of the pieces, which began trending afterwards. The headbands Selva loaned Natalie Portman (Oscars 2006) and Lupita Nyong'o (Oscars 2014) and the cascade diamond earrings worn by Jennifer Lopez in 2001 all started trends for the masses off the red carpet.

With the 2016 Oscars around the corner, we decided to take a trip down memory lane with Selva to talk about her favorite moments on the carpet, but when it comes to this year's rocks, her lips are sealed. "It's really about making the actress feel confident and beautiful on the red carpet—it's all about she" she says. "It's not about the dress or the jewelry, it's about her and, when a woman is confident in what she's wearing, that's what makes the moment."

Celebrities sparkle in Fred Leighton at the Oscars: Charlize Theron in 2000; Jennifer Lopez in 2001; Natalie Portman in 2005; Sarah Jessica Parker in 2010; Carey Mulligan in 2010; and Lupita Nyong'o in 2014. Selva worked with Prada once more on Mulligan's dress which had teeny spoons and forks sewed onto it. "When I saw those earrings, I thought Carey," said Selva of the shoulder dusters she wore that night. "With her haircut, they were just perfect and looks amazing with all the little forks and spoons on her dress. It was so her."

More stars at the Oscars in Leighton: Cameron Diaz in 2002; Michelle Williams in 2006; Kirsten Dunst in 2007; and Taraji P. Henson in 2009. Of Williams' stunning saffron look, Selva said, "That was Michelle's night. It was her red carpet—and that necklace looked so elegant with her dress and that gorgeous red lip."

Here’s What the Oscars Red Carpet Looked Like Before All Celebrities Had Stylists

Today's red carpets are an industry unto themselves, with big-name celebrity stylists working to make sure clients look stunning in front of the photographers' bulbs (and occasionally soothing them if reporters aren't kind). It's rare to come across celebs who don't employ one, so much so that it was big news back in 2009 when it was revealed that Blake Lively pulled her own dresses for events.

Shocking as the news about Mrs. Reynolds was, her status was totally the norm prior to the late '90s. Before the introduction of professional stylists—an honor that Phillip Bloch claims—stars appeared on major red carpets in outfits of their own picking that showed off their personal style better than anything since. Fashion insiders point to the introduction of People magazine in 1974 and Barbra Streisand's bell-bottomed, see-through Arnold Scaasi pantsuit as turning points for when celebrities started to think differently about what they wore (Streisand wore the quirky look when she won an Oscar for Funny Girl in 1969, giving it even more exposure). Suddenly the general public was more interested in what actors were wearing in real life, a fascination that had started bubbling in 1964, as evidenced by the broadcast of that year's Oscar ceremony. "Much of the excitement of every Academy Award presentation is generated by the prominent arriving guests," the broadcaster announced before detailing the dazzling names getting out of their cars. It was no "Who are you wearing?", but definitely the start of a shift.

Here's What the Oscars Red Carpet Looked Like Before All Celebrities Had Stylists

"Actors [were] more in control of their wardrobes. Ironically, the result was more diversity because what celebrities wore more accurately reflected their personalities and senses of style than we see today," fashion writer and editor Bridget Foley told Vanity Fair. "Someone with a casual sense of style might dress casually; someone who wanted to have fun and/or become a topic of sartorial conversation would dress for the intent."

So, what were the stars picking pre-stylists?

Here's What the Oscars Red Carpet Looked Like Before All Celebrities Had Stylists
It was an old favorite for Audrey Hepburn, who asked Hubert de Givenchy to alter the dress she wore in Roman Holiday for her to wear to the 1953 Oscars. Consider it a supreme lesson in learning what works for you and sticking with it (she won the Best Actress statuette, natch).

Here's What the Oscars Red Carpet Looked Like Before All Celebrities Had Stylists
It was big news when Bryce Dallas Howard copped to buying her own red-carpet dresses, but she wasn't the first to go that route by any means. Anjelica Huston bought her own Halston gown for the 1975 ceremony. "Even though I worked as a Halston model, I had gotten this dress at Neiman Marcus. The awards were on Friday, and [I bought it] on Wednesday."

Here's What the Oscars Red Carpet Looked Like Before All Celebrities Had Stylists
The languid feel of Mia Farrow's disco-ish gown was totally in keeping with the general style of the decade (she wore it to the 1979 Oscars). The same silhouette wouldn't look out-of-place on a modern carpet, but one accessory would be quickly nixed by a celeb stylist: that wrap, good for a tiny bit of warmth but not so much for showing off the dress.

Beyond just skipping a stylist, Demi Moore was supposedly involved in the creation of her 1989 gold-lined curtain and corset ensemble (complete with lacy biker shorts).

Likewise, Kim Basinger turned fashion designer for the bridal-like dress and half jacket she wore in 1990.

Do a web search with Whoopi Goldberg's name and the 1993 Oscars and you'll quickly see that this creation landed her on worst-dressed lists universally. Still, it's the sort of personality-packed choice that we don't see much of any more. Goldberg purchased it herself in Beverly Hills and later gave it to Planet Hollywood for display. "It's a dress she's proud of. She wanted the public to be able to see it and enjoy it close up," the restaurant's memorabilia chief told People.

Here's What the Oscars Red Carpet Looked Like Before All Celebrities Had Stylists
High-low dressing officially became a thing when Sharon Stone mixed in a spot of Gap for her 1996 Oscars look. The actress was reportedly bugged by leaked style info (the New York Times published a story the day before the awards, detailing the "gold, navy, and red Vera Wang gown with jeweled shoes" she was planning on wearing or, should things go awry, the "beige beaded chiffon Valentino" that was her backup). Instead, she mixed things up, wearing an Armani jacket, Valentino skirt, and, yup, a Gap turtleneck she found in her closet.

Beyond picking stellar red-carpet looks, today's celebrity stylists can have a lot to do with a celeb's image. Just ask Katy Perry, who retained the services of an industry favorite to help her revamp her style.

Celebrity Stylists on the Problem With Worst-Dressed Red-Carpet Lists

There's no denying that for every breathtaking red-carpet moment, there's going to be another that feels a bit more...questionable. Taste is a subjective, personal thing, yet year after year, award show after award show, worst-dressed lists are written up and hashed out, and, well, maybe the internet ought to stop.

"I hate them because it's so mean," celebrity stylist (and ace packer) Cher Coulter told The Telegraph. "Things that should stay in people's heads are there in black and white for the whole world to see online. The world we live in now is so judgmental and so passive, [with] everyone behind a screen like, 'Look at them! Look at them!' It's just ugly I think. Celebrities have feelings too."

Celebrity Stylists on the Problem With Worst-Dressed Red-Carpet Lists

The web has turned everyone into a critic about everything: food, movies, you name it. Fashion's not exempt, and those who are truly experts in the field say that they spend time reminding clients that certain opinions aren't well informed enough to matter.

"You have to really look at who is judging them. They might not be fashion people or people who understand fashion," Coulter said. Stylist Manny compared some worst-dressed offenders to art: Pricey and terribly confusing to outsiders, yet appreciated by those in the know. "It's easy to mock things that audiences don't fully understand, in the same way people may not see why a certain piece of art is so expensive and sought after if you are not from that world."

For the most part, landing on a list isn't detrimental to an actor's career (and to a degree, all publicity is good publicity). Coulter said that serial offenders likely don't care about the diss, and high-wattage stars who make a rare misstep won't see their fashion icon status shaken. Rather, it's the C-list types who might be missing out on an opportunity to make a splash by sticking to safe choices—far and away, fashion lovers and professionals agree that the biggest problem with worst-dressed lists is that they keep people from experimenting.

"If you're aiming for mass market you're not going to be on the worst dressed list, and you're not going to be on any list. You're going to be on the safe list."

Insider Intel on Whether Taylor Swift and Squad Plan Their Outfits Together

Zendaya, Taylor Swift, Lily Aldridge, Martha Hunt, and Hailee Steinfeld

Having a big group of friends takes some impressive organization—think about all those birthdays to remember and a group text message chain that must never stop blinking. One thing Taylor Swift and her squad don't need to stress over? What they're wearing.

As a confirmed posse member, Zendaya was included when the group walked the Billboard Music Awards red carpet together last May (she was Cut-Throat in "Bad Blood" and wore biker shorts and harness thigh-highs that we tallied as outfit #16 from the fashion-filled video). Prior to the Billboard moment, Zendaya, Taylor, Lily Aldridge, and Co. weren't exchanging snaps and info about what they were set to wear. Rather, according to Zendaya's stylist Law Roach, each woman did her own thing and never discussed looks until the big day. "We got to Taylor's dressing room and she wasn't even dressed yet." When she eventually got it on, Taylor's jumpsuit was Balmain; Zendaya was in Fausto Puglisi.

This little tidbit makes all the friendships feel even more authentic, no? Rather than a highly produced red-carpet moment with outfits meant to read as complementary, the world saw a group of accomplished individuals who love spending time together, but don't define themselves through their association. Basically, matching-denim-tuxedo moment it was not (nor leather Gucci—sorry Mr. and Mrs. Beckham!).

Lily-Rose Depp’s Red-Carpet Style Just Took a Major Page From Johnny Depp

From the moment Lily-Rose Depp first landed on our radar, we knew we had a future style star on our hands. As the daughter of Johnny Depp and French model Vanessa Paradis, her DNA is fashion-forward to the max. Now that the Lily-Rose is taking her first steps in the modeling and acting worlds, we're getting all kinds of opportunities to check out her sartorial game (she nabbed a spot as one of our it-girls to watch in 2016).

The actress was at Sundance yesterday for the premiere of Yoga Hosers in a sophisticated, slouchy suit that looked way more chic than what you'd expect from a 16-year-old at the beginning of her red-carpet career. Even if she doesn't have a ton of events under her belt, she does have two stylish parents that must have imparted a ton of fashion lessons over the years. This look in particular seems like something her dad inspired.

Lily-Rose Depp's Red-Carpet Style Just Took a Major Page From Johnny Depp

Johnny's made the scarf his thing, wearing them casually and on his own red carpets for years. He likes skinnier, boho styles (think the ones that could actually have been lifted from Captain Jack Sparrow's dressing room), and Lily-Rose's red pick from last night seems exactly like something her father would wear. Beyond that, it was how she wore it that really had us seeing a father-daughter fashion moment.

Lily-Rose Depp's Red-Carpet Style Just Took a Major Page From Johnny Depp

When you study pics of Johnny, he typically wears a slender scarf around his neck and then a handkerchief tucked gently into his right pocket, leaving a long tail hanging out for a final flourish. His daughter's subverted the look for her own unique take, draping a silky long scarf around her neck—no loops—and allowing it to hang unevenly to mimic Dad's pocket-stuff. Reliably, Johnny has his extra scarf hanging from his right side, whereas Lily-Rose let the extended edge of hers hang down on her left. It could be a random choice, but we're wondering if it was a little deeper than that. A celeb progeny nodding to how she's been impacted by a famous parent but still set on making her own statement? Makes sense to us.

Dad Johnny might be inspiring his little girl's red-carpet style, but that doesn't mean he's not a nervous parent. Hear what he had to say about being worried about Lily-Rose's modeling career.

Bryce Dallas Howard Bought Another Red Carpet Dress And Here’s Why We Love Her For It

Buying your own red-carpet dress is officially a thing. Bryce Dallas Howard looked sophisticated in black Balmain on last night's Critics' Choice Awards red carpet, and she wasn't shy about telling the fashion press that she purchased the dress herself to avoid sizing constraints. Again.

"I've alluded to this a little bit before, but when you're not a sample size or if you don't have a direct relationship with a designer or if you don't have a lot of notice—those size six dresses aren't available," she said. Her v-neck dress—a flattering wrap style with a bold star on the left hip—was purchased from Forward by Elyse Walker and is still up on the store's site, retailing for $1,300.

The first time Howard revealed her shopping secret was at this year's Golden Globes, where the actress identified her Jenny Packham gown as having been purchased at Neiman Marcus. Similar to last night's off-the-cuff moment, she told reporters that if she wanted options, she had to take matters into her own hands. "I like having lots of options for a size six as opposed to maybe one option."

Meet the Woman Responsible for Katy Perry's New Look

If you saw Katy Perry on the Golden Globes red carpet last night and thought that she looked amazing, but a little bit different than usual, you're on to something. The pop star worked with celebrity stylist Leslie Fremar to pick the low-cut Prada column gown, and it was definitely a sophisticated departure from her norm (which we love, but was rarely understated).

"What I do is simple and pared-down. It's thoughtful but it's not eccentric," the stylist told People. "I think she was just looking to do something different. And when I thought about what would be different for her it was about making it simple." The pair didn't have very long to work together either; Fremar reports getting the assignment five days before showtime.

Before we continue, let's take a time out. For a quick reference of what Perry's typically worn on the carpet, take a peek at the Britney-inspired denim look she wore to the VMAs in 2014.

Comparatively, last night's Prada is the epitome of demure, plunging neckline and all.

"She wanted to stay true to being a musician but be appropriate for the event. It's a very fine line because you don't want to be somebody that you're not. But then you also want to be respectful, because you're there honoring people's work," she explained, pointing to the times that Perry's dressed perfectly in theme, à la the music-covered Valentino gown she picked for the Grammys in 2014. "She's so used to making costumes, and she really knows her body. It was a really fun collaboration."

Professionally, Fremar's job is to work with what a star likes, while also nudging them to take a step outside of their comfort zones. While in Perry's case that might mean taking things down a notch to embrace a streamlined look, other clients can see an opposite push. For instance, when Fremar started working with Reese Witherspoon she helped the actress move beyond vintage dresses and bright colors.

Meet the Woman Responsible for Katy Perry's New Look

Reese Witherspoon in Saint Laurent at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival

"She doesn't like to wear black, though I get her to wear black sometimes," she told the New York Times. The actress' big Oscar moment—in 2005 for Walk the Line—happened about five years before the two joined forces, but it was one that the stylist referred to when she laid out a plan for Witherspoon's style evolution, explaining that while the actress "loves vintage clothing and references," it wasn't a direction they were going. Lo and behold, when was the last time you saw the A-lister in a retro look?

Fremar with Charlize Theron

Fremar tells a similar style of client Charlize Theron, a woman she's credited with helping introduce to the best-dressed list. Like Witherspoon, the actress needed just a bit of a push to get into one of her most stunning recent looks, a divine Dior couture dress worn at the 2014 Oscars. "Charlize has worn white and pink, so I thought it would be incredible to do a black dress," she's explained. "She wasn't sure but said, 'I trust you.'" And there's her styling M.O. in a nutshell.

Beyond switching up the style of an established star, Fremar can also make a red-carpet ingenue happen. When Nicola Peltz burst onto the style scene with Transformers: Age of Extinction, she could have easily been ignored by the fashion flock. Instead, thanks to Fremar's deft picks, she was widely celebrated.

Meet the Woman Responsible for Katy Perry's New Look

So what does this mean for Perry? Rest assured that the singer won't transform into a copy of anyone else, though we do predict more of the solids and simple cuts that make for timeless looks. Fremar will be working her signature magic, finessing what the star is drawn to naturally, challenging it every so slightly, and helping to make sure everything is still essentially her.

"She's very aware of her brand and she's wicked smart. She comes off as being light and fun, but she's also very impressive. Everything is really thought-through."

We're excited!

Because celebrity stylists can really affect a star's look: Come see what it looks like when the Kardashians' go-to stylist dressed Gigi Hadid.

Red carpet season is finally here! It's T-minus four hours until 2016 The Golden Globe Awards—but first, how about some red carpet love? We'll be live blogging every major fashion moment of the night from limo exit to stiletto-clad departure of every major star tonight.

What's particularly exciting about this year's Globes is that the nominees aren't just the world's finest actresses, they're also the most daring and influential dressers on the planet. Fashion favorites such as Cate Blanchett, Lady Gaga, Rooney Mara, and more style-setting celebs will be making their entrances—not to mention our fabulous cover star Jennifer Lawrence, who consistently kills it on the red carpet. Take a look at her red carpet transformation here (bring on the Dior, JLaw!).

There are also some newer starlets making a name for themselves in both acting circles and fashion. The most promising fashion stars are Alicia Vikander, Brie Larson, Gina Rodriguez, and Lola Kirke. You can learn more about these style stars on the rise right here. Tonight is such an important fashion moment for starlets, with millions watching (you may recall Lupita Nyong'o's Globes debut in 2014 in a caped red Ralph Lauren gown, after which she was declared a fashion phenom).

Beyond the red carpet, stick with us for style news throughout the show. Here's hoping it'll be more about the fabulous surprise presenters who didn't walk the carpet (we're talking about you, Julia Roberts), and less of the wardrobe malfunction variety (you know who you are).

So stay tuned here for all the style info you've been waiting for and be sure to follow us on social media at @glamour_fashion on Twitter and @glamourmag on Instagram.
