Awards season continued at the annual Brit Awards in London last night! Justin Timberlake continued his world takeover, walking the carpet in Tom Ford (of course) before taking to the stage to give his first live performance of his newest single, “Mirror Mirror.” (His wife Jessica Biel tweeted her support.) Taylor Swift was on-hand as a nominee for International Female Solo Artist (she lost to Lana Del Rey), and after the show she partied with Carey Mulligan and her husband, lead singer Marcus Mumford of folk band Mumford & Sons, who took home the award for British Group.

Zac Posen is famous for his red carpet looks, dressing everyone from Naomi Watts to Kim Kardashian for Hollywood events—and now he’s launching an everyday collection for working women, too! His ZAC Zac Posen line is set to make its debut this fall, complete with suits, separates, cocktail dresses, and evening wear cut to Posen’s architectural taste. “ZAC is a distillation of eleven years spent honing my design signature and keeping it updated and modern in finishing and fabrication,” the designer said. “ZAC lets me offer women a way to dress that has looser, more relaxed ease, while featuring the level of detail and sophistication of designer.” ZAC will be available in department stores, with pieces ranging from $490 (day dresses) to $1,690 (evening gowns).

The soda wars are a-changin’! Both Coca-Cola and Pepsi inked lucrative deals with the hottest stars in fashion and music—Marc Jacobs is the 2013 creative director for Diet Coke and Beyoncé got a $50 million deal with Pepsi—and this forces us to answer a question we never faced before. It’s not Coke vs. Pepsi, it’s Marc vs. Beyonce! (Jeez, even their campaigns look the same, see above.) So, fizzy soda bubbles aside, who do you choose? Vote below!

Drew Barrymore worked an electric rose lipstick at a Bulgari event in Beverly Hills this week, and we love the eye-popping hue! “For this look, clean and classic seemed the best way to go,” said the star’s makeup artist Debra Ferullo. “I thought a bright fuchsia lip would add a nice twist!” Ferullo used makeup from Barrymore’s own cosmetic line to achieve the look, picking up the Flower Beauty Kiss Stick in Petunia Petals, a bright magenta, for the statement pout. The key to pulling off an bold lip color is equal parts balance and confidence—a strong lipstick paired with vivid shadow can look overdone, so follow the actress’s lead and go easy on the eyes. Pick up a tube of Barrymore’s lipstick for just $7 at walmart.com.

If you think you love Fashion Week livestreaming, check out the latest trend: digital fashion shows! Designers like Rachel Roy, Pierre Balmain, and Peter Som decided to take ‘streaming one step further, ditching an audience-filled show altogether in favor of a taped runway you could only see on your computer screen. “A digital show allowed me to tell the story of my fall collection in a new way and share that with a larger audience,” Roy told InStyle.com, adding that she was able to share more behind-the-scenes looks through social media with the digital format. “I wanted it to be very inclusive and create experiences that people who love fashion can engage with.” Get in on the digital fashion show action: Watch Rachel Roy’s online-only runway show above!

When it comes to fabulous costumes, there’s no place like Disney. To coincide with the March 8 release of Oz The Great and Powerful, Disney Store designers have created two adult-sized, limited-edition couture costumes inspired by two of the tale’s iconic witches, Theodora (the Wicked Witch of the West) and Glinda (the Good Witch), played by InStyle’s March cover girls Mila Kunis and Michelle Williams. Only 300 editions of each look were made, and you can shop both the Wicked ($400) and Good ($350) costumes now on disneystore.com (along with an entire collection of Oz-inspired goodies). “I spent a lot of the shoot in a leather corset, wired up in a harness, and flying around in costume,” Kunis told InStyle of playing the West’s most infamous Wicked Witch. And while broomstick flying might not be on your agenda, it’s still fun to imagine wearing a pointy hat inspired by Theodora’s infamous black topper. Unless, that is, you’re more of a Glinda girl. Vote below and tell us which witch are you: Good or Bad?
