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. And tell us: What do you think of the pick? How gorgeous are these photos?

Whitney Port Picks Her Fave Wedding Dresses, From the See-Through Gown to a White Eyelet Bikini?!

Apr/22/2014 at 11:30 AM ET

We bet you already have a few weddings marked down in your calendar this year, and even if you don’t, you can still get excited about all the celebrity weddings on the horizon. Bride-to-be Whitney Port has been busily planning her wedding and now she’s sharing her top dress picks from this year’s Bridal Fashion week. So, of course we had to round up some of her most head-turning — and skin-baring — selections.

“The idea of a beach wedding sounds so beautiful to me, so I loved this one,” the star tells Brides magazine of the two-piece Oscar de la Renta design (first above) featuring a white eyelet bikini and coordinating skirt. “I like that it’s very simple, but still delicate, and not the traditional wedding dress.”

Next up, a sleek Vera Wang gown, which is in line with her own wedding dress vision. “I’ve been toying with the idea of wearing a classic slip dress and this look is just simple and comfortable. You don’t have to worry about anything or the fuss of a big ball gown.” (This would be our pick for the star as well, who told PEOPLE, “I’ve always envisioned that Cindy Crawford beach slip kind of dress.”)

Port, who got engaged to fiancé Tim Rosenman last November, has also considered flashing some undergarments for her trek down the aisle (a look we’re curious if Kim Kardashian will go for.) “Another idea I considered was trying the see-through trend, where you can see the bra and panties underneath. I didn’t know if that was okay for a wedding, but this dress shows you can make the look tasteful,” Port tells the mag of the Houghton design above (We had to pixelate the model’s, er, naughty bits). “Plus, it features a lot of sequins and beading — I’m a sucker for anything metallic or sequined!”

Lastly, Port’s most traditional gown choice comes from designer Naeem Khan’s 2015 collection. “I’ve also been toying with the idea of wearing a veil, and this one makes me feel like I want one. It’s such a beautiful, intricate accessory, especially if you have a very simple dress.”

What do you think of Port’s picks? Are you a fan of the skin-baring wedding dress trends? Share your thoughts below!

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.
