Miley Cyrus

— Miley Cyrus wore part of a tuxedo to the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. She got plenty of attention, but why not with legs like that? Alicia Keys wore a simple, curve-hugging black Azzedine Alaia Couture gown; Swizz Beatz was in a crisp white suit, and Usher and Jordin Sparks both wore blue — the Huffington Post calls the latter two the evening's "style sensations."

Priscilla Chan, Mark Zuckerberg
— Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, 28, married girlfriend Dr. Priscilla Chan, 27,  in a surprise wedding on Saturday — guests thought they had been invited to celebrate Chan's recent graduation from medical school. The bride wore a laser-cut floral gown adorned with matte sequins lined in silk by couture designer Claire Pettibone. The gown featured a jewel neckline and sheer back with chapel-length train. And it cost $4,700, according to a news release that hit my in-box from the designer — less than one might expect from a wealthy power couple. (Then again, the IPO isn't doing that well.) The groom did not wear his infamous hoodie. It may be the first time the world has seen him in a suit and tie. How did he announce his marriage? By updating his status on Facebook, of course!  [Washington Post]
