1.  Critics’ Choice Round-Up: The Artist might have walked away with all the top awards but it was the roster of A-list stars on the red carpet that had us gleaming. See all of our favourite looks from the black tie event.

2.  People’s Choice Round-Up: The people have spoken! No-show Katy Perry swept the top honours at the first awards show of the season. On the red carpet, Hollywood’s PYTs were out in full force with hands on hips and frocks that flirted for the flashing lights.

3.  Getting Fresh With Joe: We popped by Joe Fresh HQ to walk through the brand’s new spring collection. Cool blues and signature orange dominated the new line. Check out 19 of our favourite picks that now have a (special) spot on our shopping list!

4.  Jason Wu Wows: Pack your bags and book that hotel, a trip across the border is a must–all in time for the debut of Jason Wu’s new affordable line with Target. We’re giving you a first look at the bullseye label’s new collection featuring the Wu’s signature polish. 

Fashion’s Top Honuor: Vote now for who you think should win the prestigious Design of the Year Award in fashion. McQueen, Céline, Suno and more–are all nominated for the top prize.
