Miley Cyrus Channels Kate Moss at the MTV EMAs; Jessica Chastain Covers Vogue

And Lady Gaga rocks a flying dress.

Miley Cyrus Channels Kate Moss at the MTV EMAS: At MTV's Europe Music Awards in Amsterdam on Sunday, the Bangerz star lit up the stage, pulling a hand-rolled "cigarette" from her Chanel bag while wearing a high-cut, white leotard and a fur-coat (many speculate, however, that it wasn’t tobacco that Miley was puffing on). While this crazy charade seems on-point with Miley’s recent behavior, it isn’t the most original stunt. Two and a half years ago, supermodel Kate Moss famously smoked a cigarette on the Louis Vuitton catwalk—while also wearing a fur coat meets leotard ensemble. [The Telegraph]

Jessica Chastain Covers Vogue: Zero Dark Thirty star Jessica Chastain has finally scored herself a Vogue cover. Legendary photographer Annie Lebovitz captured a full-body shot of Chastain for the magazine's December 2013 issue, in which she wears a yellow Theyskens’ Theory gown and a noticeable lack of jewelry. Chastain's cover is a close resemblance to Frederick Leighton's 1895 painting Flaming June, which shows a red-headed woman cozied-up on a chair in a flowing yellow dress. [Fashionista]

Lady Gaga Rocks a Flying Dress: Queen of Pop, Lady Gaga, has officially taken her outlandish style to the next level. For a secret party called artRave she held at the Brooklyn Navy Yard to promote her new album, Gaga performed her latest hits with her usual bevy of outfit changes. The ultimate ensemble, however, was a flying dress, named "The Volantis," which was a hovercraft designed by the TechHaus branch of the Haus of Gaga. “Volantis is essentially a vehicle,” she told the audience, according to MTV. "Although [Volantis] is a vehicle, she is essentially a metaphor for me. I will be a vehicle today for their voices… Youth all over the world." [MTV]

Michelle Obama Hangs Out With Hollywood's Elite: First Lady Michelle Obama hosted the inaugural "Careers In Film Symposium" at the White House on Saturday, where she hung with some of Hollywood’s biggest stars including Blake Lively, Whoopi Goldberg, Harvey Weinstein, Gayle King, and Naomie Harris. The workshop was held for high school students interested in pursuing a career in the film industry, with stars sharing their thoughts on what it takes to break into Hollywood. "Talent comes and goes," Obama said during her speech. "But it's your ability to dig deep when things are hard and make things happen for yourself—that’s the difference between just an average life and success." [The Huffington Post]
