What's Hot Now
Here at PEOPLE Style, we’re always in full-on fashion mode. From the Cannes Film Festival to the Billboard Music Awards, there have been so many amazing style moments to keep track of this week (like Emily Stone’s ivory Dior gown that doubles as a wedding gown or Chrissy Teigen’s not one but five wardrobe swaps during the award show). But off the red carpet, there are also some new and exciting style moments happening right now that deserve your immediate attention.

We’re already obsessed with Jessie J’s newest hit single, Bang Bang (which also features Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande). And with a lineup like those three fashion and beauty risk takers, we just know that the music video is going to give us equal joy — and beauty inspiration. You won’t be able to catch the full video until Sunday, but luckily, we had a chance to chat with Jessie while she was filming to get some inside scoop on the sure-to-be-killer clip. Here’s what she spilled:

The dress code for the Brit Awards seemed to have been “sparkles and more sparkles,” but there was one very noteworthy non-complier: Kate Moss. And for a very cool reason: She was wearing one of David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust tour costumes instead, to accept the star’s “Best British Male” award on his behalf.
As a photo of Bowie in his iconic rabbit costume from his 1972 tour flashed on the screen behind her, Moss strutted onstage after being introduced as “Bowie’s representative on earth” wearing the vintage look, which was was designed by Kansai Yamamoto and has appeared in London’s Victoria & Albert museum. Of course, Moss gave it her own twist, adding tights, sky-high heels and bangles, with no neon Ziggy Stardust mullet in sight.

The creative minds behind some of those too-high-cut-to-be-comfortable leotards Cyrus wears? The design duo The Blonds (known for their outrageous NYFW show and costumes for stars like Beyoncé and Ke$sha). And one half of the pair, David Blond, told PEOPLE he and partner Phillipe Blonde had a blast working with the 21-year-old singer and her stylist Simone Harouche.
“She really knows what she likes and what she wants,” says Blond. “We had a lot of freedom but the process was really collaborative and we always appreciate when the performer puts in their two cents.”
Her main requests? “Miley likes to show off her legs and body so everything was really high cut, low cut or both,” he says with a laugh.
Taylor Swift pretty much won the internet this past week. She sang backup for Bon Jovi. With Prince William. She wore an insanely gorgeous white Reem Acra gown that was most likely added to hundreds of wedding planning Pinterest boards. She showed up to the American Music Awards in a stunning gold mini … and went home with a handful of awards. And now, she’s earning the title of PEOPLE’s Most Loved Look of the Week.
Who: Miley Cyrus
Where: At the MTV Europe Music Awards in Amsterdam
Diagnosis: Shortage of Throwback Thursday pic options. It appears that Miley has exhausted all possible #tbt pictures and is now forced to come up with fresh fodder for the popular Instagram hashtag by wearing old school photos (in this case, of rappers Biggie and Tupac) across her midsection and rear. (Her Lil Kim Halloween costume, also shown off on Insta, confirms our diagnosis.)
Prognosis and recommended treatment: You might expect our suggested course of action to be to cover up — considering Miley’s mini reveals more skin than many bathing suits. But trying to get Miley to cover up is like trying to get Miley to keep her tongue in her mouth: a losing game.
Therefore, we recommend the following: Since she’s basically naked (and this dress is pretty much beyond repair — did you notice the lace-up front?), just add a wrecking ball or foam finger and call it a day.
If her goal, however, was not to get tongues wagging, bur rather to spread peace (see: “Please Stop Violence” emblazoned across the bottom of the dress), we’d recommend wearing the phrase on a slightly more modest look. You know, like a crop top, paired with leather leggings and platform loafers. Oh, and maybe not trying to disseminate a serious message so soon after Tweeting a “shower selfie.” Just a thought.
So, what do you think of the singer’s go-Biggie/Tupac-or-go-home dress?
