Prom season is surrounding us, peeps. It's already mid-April (HOW?) and the big day is approaching. Fast. If you haven't started looking for your dress, shoes, accessories, etc.—don't worry, we got you. We took a few online trips to some of our favorite retailers and rounded up the best prom dresses out there this season, all for under $150. OK, let's stop talking and start shopping—these bad boys are prob not gonna last much longer.

A metallic dress may look expensive, but there are plenty of cheap options out there. Here are three. The first is a gold metallic number ($115) with geometric threaded detailing and shoulder cutouts. While the shoulders and dress length show some skin, the rest is totally full coverage, which means you'll be able to dance and pose for pictures without constantly adjusting. The second option is a two-tone metallic dress with an unusual neckline and flared skirt ($150). Because this dress is so reflective, it'll appear as different colors throughout the night—multiple dresses for the price of one! Finally, there's this silver-and-black fitted mini ($43), which, post-prom, can def. be incorporated into your everyday wardrobe.

Do Adam Lambert and Katy Perry drink water from the same source? Is there something in the water? What other explanation is there for why two people decided to dye their hair green in the same week? I honestly can't think of any. Oh, maybe because it looks good? That could be it.
Adam Lambert debuted his new 'do on Instagram, captioning the photo, "Green hair don't care." I think you do care, Adam. I'd care if I could pull off green hair. Adam really went for it, even dyeing the closely shaved sides of his head. While it's hard to tell what shade of green his hair actually is (thanks, Instagram filters), it looks like it's a pretty dark shade.
YAAAS. #shehashadit's Jarvis Derrell is back on MTV Style and taking on looks from the 2014 MTV Movie Awards. It wouldn't be an awards show or Fashion Week without him, and we're happy to have him back. See what Jarvis has to say about ~lewks~ from the Movie Awards below!

Sky Ferreira on set for 'I Blame Myself.'
Are shoppable music videos the wave of the future? Some people might think that. OK, it's me—I think that. Considering the blurring divide between editorial and commerce, and fashion and music, the video genre seems primed to take off. There’s also the fact that music videos are really expensive and, as they’ve become more and more about the clothing, getting killer looks for them can be a budgetary hurdle, especially if you’re an emerging artist without designers lining up to loan you looks.
Online retailer Ssense is making a case for the shoppable music video, along with their partner System magazine. First they teamed up with Iggy Azalea when she was a wee spitfire back in 2012 on the video for “I Think She Ready.” (As we noted last week when her Revolve campaign was announced, Iggy is kind of a pioneer in this realm.) Now, they’re working with another artist at the forefront of the intersection of music and fashion, Sky Ferreira, on the video for her new single “I Blame Myself.”

Last night at the MTV Movie Awards, Rita Ora was responsible for probably our #1 fave show moment. Here's a hint: muscles. Here's another hint: Zac Efron. OK, yes, it was when Rita ripped Zac's shirt off. Snap buttons are the best invention, right? Before she was inches away from Zac's bare bod, Rita had to get ready for the show, and we snagged some behind-the-scenes photos. Just think, as she was getting her makeup done, she had no idea she'd soon be lauded as a hero. What a world.
Here at MTV Style we get really excited when the worlds of music and fashion meet, so Coachella is like a homecoming of sorts, where everyone tries a little harder and flaunts their style, whether they’re turning up their usual look or testing out some riskier #FASHUN. With a star-studded lineup and killer surprise guest list, it’s safe to say that this year Coachella had some of its most eye-catching moments yet—and this was only Weekend One.

Katy Perry didn’t perform but she was (easily) spotted around the festival all weekend long—who could miss her with that new slime-green hair? Obv, Katy didn’t wear a flower crown; she already had a lot going on in the hair department. Katy showed that her green 'do is actually more versatile than you’d think, pairing it with a very ladylike black-and-white ensemble and a turquoise pencil skirt and matching crop top.
Conan O'Brien pulls a Christian Bale circa American Hustle.
It's no secret that Conan O'Brien's hair has become a kind of signature for the comedian. Red, voluminous, and always perfectly quiffed. What remains a secret, though, is how exactly he (and his ~glam squad~) get it looking so good for every single show and public appearance. Well, thanks to this exclusive, never-before-seen clip from Coco's dressing room, we're...not much closer to figuring that out.
In a bit that didn't air during the 2014 MTV Movie Awards, Conan spoofs the opening sequence of American Hustle, in which Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale) wrestles with his extremely high-maintenance combover. It doesn't stave off my
want need to see the real magic behind Coco's coiffure, but it is pretty funny.
