It’s no surprise to anyone that ’90s fashion is back in a big way. Between the overalls, the waist-tied shirts and the floral sundresses, we’re definitely in the middle of a Britney Spears-on-TRL level resurgence of that decade’s style. And while we aren’t quite at butterfly clips yet, it can’t be too far off — because some big-name stars are ripping out a page from the Cher Horowitz playbook and pairing their knee-highs with heels.

The PEOPLE StyleWatch team couldn’t be happier about this year’s Most Beautiful Woman choice. After all, we’ve been writing love notes to Lupita Nyong’o since she came on the scene last fall. She looks amazing in anything she wears (her arms inspire us to do pushups), she looks fabulous in any kind of makeup and she’s got a genuine joy and enthusiasm that makes her absolutely radiant.

So since we feel like we kinda called her big win (work with us here), we got to go behind the scenes of her stunning photoshoot. We got to see the dozens of dresses, jewels and shoes she tried on for a few killer shots for the magazine. She wore everything from a Michael Kors gray turtleneck sweater and Marchesa shorts to a Cartier vintage emerald necklace — as you can see, she had no shortage of jaw-dropping designer styles to try. The actress posed for photographer Alexi Lubomirski at N.Y.C.’s Plaza Hotel, with her hair done by Ted Gibson, makeup by Nick Barose, manicure by Casey Herman and styling by Katie Mossman.

For even more from the star (including a look at everything she wore!) pick up this week’s Most Beautiful issue, full of gorgeous photos and tons of inside scoop on the most remarkable people in (and out of) Hollywood.

Coco Rocha's BaubleBar Collection: 'I Don't Think Fashionable Jewelry Should Cost as Much as a Down Payment on a House!'

Apr/22/2014 at 09:00 AM ET

Coco Rocha is one of the biggest models in the world for a reason: She knows how to wear the heck out of clothes. And all that time spent in front of the camera and on the runway has taught her a thing or two about what she loves and what works for women. Now she’s putting those lessons to work with a very chic (and very statement-making) collection for editor-loved, affordable jewelry line BaubleBar — and chatting with PEOPLE about favorite pieces, inspiration and more.

Hayden Panettiere's Festival Dressing MO: 'Face Paint Helps Me Get Through Large Crowds'

If you have Coachella FOMO, you’re not alone. Hayden Panettiere wasn’t able to attend this year’s festival, but she was happy to talk about what she’d wear if she was there (and reminisce about some of her rowdy desert-hopping, crowd surfing days).

“I would find something really wacky. It’ s a free-for-all, and I love it,” she told PEOPLE at a recent event for her latest Neutrogena campaign. “I love to be very hippie-boho — feathers and Woodstock-y. Sometimes I’ll do face paint at music festivals, which helps me in a lot of ways getting through large crowds. I remember one year — I think it was actually Bonnaroo — we got this really cheap face paint and nothing else. I painted this multicolored butterfly on one side of my face and with mascara, I took a brush and made her body the head along my nose and the body came down across my face with antennas above my eyebrows. So one side of my face was a butterfly and it came out so good. And a headband and fringe and chopped up t-shirts. Basically, whatever you want.”

And while the Nashville star doesn’t knock crop tops, she said she’s not the type to wear them out in situation where lots of photos may be snapped.

“I like crop tops, but I like crop tops with high-waisted skinny jeans or shorts,” she shared. “Unless you have a really flat stomach … I do not feel like putting that much thought into sucking it in. I cannot be bothered. There are some people that have no fat on their stomach that can get away with it — any way they bend, it’s fine. But the last thing I want is to be bending over and have somebody take a picture and then they’re like, ‘Hayden gains a roll! Hayden rolls at Coachella!’ That could be the headline.”

We love that the bride-to-be can poke fun of herself, but trust us, we’ve seen her in person, and there aren’t any rolls happening. What do you think of her festival dressing tips? What would you wear to a music festival like Coachella? Share your thoughts below.
