Is Jennifer Lopez's 2000 Grammys dress still shocking? -- POLL

Back in 2000 when she was known as JLo, Jennifer Lopez accompanied then-boyfriend Puff Daddy to the Grammys wearing a very revealing sheer chiffon Versace gown. The couple split up soon after, but the image of Lopez in that dress lives on.

It’s certainly the most memorable gown in Grammys history — it even has its own Wikipedia page — but if Lopez wore the dress that put her on the fashion map to this Sunday’s ceremony, would it be considered shocking by today’s red carpet standards?

In the last year alone, we’ve seen plenty of dresses that make JLo’s Versace number look positively demure by comparison. In April 2013, Gwyneth Paltrow not only showed up to the premiere of Iron Man 3 in a NSFW gown by Antonio Berardi, she shared a TMI story about having to shave her bikini line minutes before hitting the red carpet. Last November, actress Jaimie Alexander stole Thor’s thunder when she walked the red carpet at the premiere of the action flick wearing an Azzaro Couture gown that barely concealed her naughty bits. Just days later in London, British model Abbey Clancy took side boob to a whole new level in a Julien Macdonald gown at the appropriately named Fashion for the Brave benefit.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the dress — more accurately described as a scrap of mesh fabric and a thong — that Rose McGowan wore to the MTV VMAs in 1998, almost two years before JLo taped on her Grammys dress. But McGowan’s display was not so much a fashion moment as it was a case of temporary insanity. Same goes for Lady Gaga’s 2011 Grammys egg ensemble.

If Jennifer Lopez wore that infamous Versace dress today, would it still be as shocking as it was the first time? Cast your vote in the poll below. READ FULL STORY

Miley Cyrus is the face of designer Marc Jacobs' spring line

Miley Cyrus has signed on to be the face of designer Marc Jacobs’ eponymous fashion line.

On Wednesday, Jacobs confirmed via Twitter that Cyrus stars in his spring ad campaign. “Secret’s out, @MileyCyrus stars in the MJ SS14 Campaign shot by David Sims!” the designer tweeted.

Cyrus and Jacobs have known each other for years. In 2013, the pop singer wore some memorable looks by the designer — including a black mesh gown she wore to the annual Met gala last May — and posed naked for a charity T-shirt that was part of Jacobs’ “Protect the Skin You’re In” campaign. She was even on hand — and fully clothed — to present him with the Superstar Award at the FGI Awards in New York City.

In an interview with Hunger TV last October, Cyrus credited Jacobs with introducing her to the world of fashion when she was a young Disney star. “He kind of brought me into fashion like when I was 16, that was when I started being around him and learning from him,” she explained. “He kind of let me inspire some of his pieces.”

Report: Jay-Z's Barneys collection rakes in $1 million

Despite the controversy surrounding the release of Jay-Z’s holiday collection for Barneys New York, the rap mogul’s line of clothes and accessories for the upscale retailer raked in a lot of money.

The New York Daily News quotes a source close to Barneys, who claimed that while the numbers were still being tallied, “profits had exceeded the million-dollar mark.”

The launch of the “A New York Holiday” collection was overshadowed by accusations of discrimination when two black shoppers said they were racially profiled after making expensive purchases at the luxury department store. Though his fans criticized him for refusing to pull out of his fashion partnership with Barneys, Jay-Z defended his decision to go ahead with the line as planned.    READ FULL STORY

Britney Spears narrowly avoids a major wardrobe malfunction -- VIDEO

The opening of Britney Spears’ residency Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas went off without a hitch. The second night, the pop star narrowly avoided what could have been a major wardrobe malfunction.

A video posted on Instagram shows the moment when Spears’ costume — one of 7 she wears throughout the 90-minute show — pops open as she performs the song “Circus,” revealing her bare back and threatening to expose her front. Luckily, two quick-thinking back-up dancers jump into action and manage to get Britney — who keeps on dancing — zipped back into her corset.

Watch the video of the near disaster after the jump.

Beyoncé surprised everyone when she unceremoniously dropped her new album last Friday — including many of the people who actually worked on the videos.

“Nobody knew. They did it without telling anybody that they were releasing it today,” stylist Lysa Cooper told THR. “We all thought it was going to be released by Christmas or maybe after the New Year. We weren’t really sure, so it was a big surprise.”

Cooper was one of five stylists hired to dress Beyoncé for the 17 videos that comprise the “visual album.” READ FULL STORY

Gift of the Day: 'Duck the Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas'

Not sure what to get the pop culture geek in your life this holiday season? PopStyle is here to help! From the hottest gadgets to the oddest collectibles, we’re rounding up the best gifts in movies, music, TV, books, and more with our Gift of the Day.

They’ve become one of the most popular families on TV — A&E’s Duck Dynasty pulls in millions of TV viewers each week — now the Robertson family is burning up the music charts.

After debuting at #2 on Billboard’s list of best-selling holiday albums last month, Duck the Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas unseated Kelly Clarkson’s Wrapped in Red to land at #1, where it stayed for four weeks. Clarkson regained the top spot last week, but Duck the Halls is sitting pretty at #2 on the holiday charts, holds the same position on the country charts, and is currently #5 on the Billboard 200, just behind Britney Spears’ Britney Jean.

With songs like “Rajin’ Cajun Redneck Christmas,” “Hairy Christmas,” and “Duck the Halls,” is it any surprise that the Robertsons have one of the biggest albums of the season?  READ FULL STORY
