Don’t be fooled by the awards that she’s got—she’s still Jenny from the block! Jennifer Lopez was named World Icon at Univision’s Premios Juventud in Miami last night. During the ceremony, she performed a mix of “Live it Up” and “On the Floor” with Pitbull, then changed into a sequined Zuhair Murad shift dress to accept the honor. “When I see all these images and your beautiful faces, I feel very fortunate to be here tonight. What I have always wanted to do with my life is to create, sing, dance, act, entertain, and be a good person,” the star said in her emotional speech. “I accept this award with a lot of humility and I am enormously grateful.” Congratulations, Jennifer!

Fall 2013 Couture Fashion Week is wrapping up in Paris, and we’ve been glued to checking out the custom-made, hand-stitched collections the past few days. Zuhair Murad, Valentino, and Vionnet helped close out the runway schedule with designs fit for the red carpet, as seen above, adding to our list of overall favorites. Click to see the 36 looks we loved most.
The stars played peekaboo at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards last night! Celebrities including Jennifer Lopez, Emmy Rossum, and Taylor Swift all chose to wear designs that incorporated sheer elements (and all by the same designer, Zuhair Murad). Lopez’s gold skirt was see-through, Rossum’s side panels were covered in polka dots only, and Swift’s royal blue mini featured a crackle pattern that showed off her shoulders. But no one tried to do sheer quite like Once Upon a Time star Jennifer Morrison, who walked the carpet in a completely transparent gown (save for her skivvies) by Kristian Aadnevik.

That’s a wrap! Elie Saab closed out Paris Fashion Week, and our editors are headed back to the States as we speak. But not before we round up the best of everything they saw in the City of Light! Some highlights: Zuhair Murad‘s peek-a-boo dresses (perfect for super-fan Jennifer Lopez), Garrett Hedlund and Kirsten Dunst at Saint Laurent (for a very special reason), Chanel‘s Earth-conscious set, and Kate Moss, hitting the catwalk just for Louis Vuitton.

Jennifer Lopez’s two looks at last night’s Golden Globes left no question in anybody’s mind: the singer has one of the most rockin’ figures around. With a little help from designer Zuhair Murad, Lopez first walked the red carpet in a sheer nude body-contouring long-sleeved gown with strategically placed lace embroidery, then changed into a plunging black silk crepe halter dress complete with feather train for the after-parties. Vote below: which of the two dresses do you like better?

Twilight brought in some big bucks! Breaking Dawn – Part 2 grossed $141.3 million in its opening weekend—making in the eight biggest opening weekend opening of all time—as well as $199.6 million internationally. The mega-appeal is due in part to the cast, including Kristen Stewart, who embarked on an around-the-world tour to promote the finale movie in the series and worked with stylist Tara Swennen to pack some of the boldest, brightest, and best outfits we’ve ever seen her wear. In Berlin, she shined in a gold Elie Saab dress; in Madrid, she glowed in sunny yellow Christian Dior; in London, she wore a black lace and sequin jumpsuit by Zuhair Murad; and in Hollywood, she dazzled in an illusion Zuhair Murad gown. Which look is your favorite? Vote in the poll below! More
