Kristen Stewart at 2013 Kids' Choice Awards.

It's been a minute since we last heard from Kristen Stewart—and after dealing with an injured foot at the Oscars, girl probably could've used a break! So needless to say, we were psyched to see the actress out at tonight's 2013 Kids' Choice Awards, turning heads in a major way. Dressed in a navy blue shorts outfit designed by Osman Studio, K.Stew looked KILLER, that much is obvious. While we all know she can rock floor-length gowns like a pro, and it's also a well-publicized fact that she loooves to go cas in sneakers and a t-shirt, the cool thing about her outfit here is that it actually straddles the line between the two. Part off-duty K.Stew and part ultra-glam movie star, these easygoing shorts plus classic black pumps are the perfect combination. It's not the first time she's eschewed a dress for shorts at events, and the leggy look is a formula that obviously works.

• Selena Gomez accessorized her Antonio Berardi dress with a mustache on Fallon this week, and looked SO adorable, we can barely stand it.
• WHOAWHOAWHOA HOLD UP. Does Beyonce's killer Shape magazine cover mean that belly rings are back?!
• Mary-Kate and Ashley stans, let's all take a moment and obsess over this awesome/weird/totally twin-tastic merch.
• So... is anyone else battling the urge to horse around with Miley Cyrus in a unicorn onesie this weekend? Join the club.
• Justin Timberlake twerks in a turtleneck (twerkleneck?) in his new "Mirrors" music video, and we're not even mad.

It's Friday, you guys! And what a happy Friday it is, because the good people at adidas Neo have just gifted us a nice little present to carry us ALL the way through the weekend. Remember when we announced last month that the girls' brand ambassador Selena Gomez was appearing in the label's interactive lookbook? Well, now it's Justin Bieber's turn, and he's repping the guys' collection in a big way. Dressed in goods from the Spring/Summer 2013 line, this completely clickable, 100% shoppable lookbook stars Justin transforming a plastic container into his own personal makeshift drumset.

Here's the thing about Carly Rae Jepsen: the Canadian singer might be a pop sensation, but she's one whose onstage wardrobe stays firmly planted in the realm of "totally and 100% wearable." And that's not a bad thing. As much as we'd love to THINK that we'd wear Rihanna's leather crop tops or one of Lana Del Rey's vintage-inspired wrap dresses out and about, the chances of that actually happening regularly are slim to none. Carly's easy sensibility is one of the many reasons why we've been eyeballing the musician very closely while she's on tour overseas, and we've started to notice a pattern (thanks Instagram!). Think statement jackets, wild denim, and TONS of tights. While we're used to seeing her in basic black, though, lately she's been switching it up with a polka dot pair, and we're in love.
MK&A stan swag? You got it, dude.

Long before The Row, Elizabeth and James, and *those* $55,000 backpacks, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were just a pair of chubby-cheeked babies selected to play the joint role of Michelle Tanner on the '80s TBS sitcom Full House. Yep, these girls got their big break at the ripe age of 6 months—and unless you've been living under a rock for the past, oh, 26 years, we DON'T have to tell you about the pure superstar insanity that's happened to the Olsens since then. Dozens of movies, stacks of CDs (who could ever forget this?!), and enough MK&A branded merch to fill an entire '90s kid's closet...which, in my case, it totally did.
Rita Ora for Superga.

So we've been keeping some very close tabs on Rita Ora's new modeling gig as the face of Italian sneaker company Superga (see exhibits A, B, and C), but while much of our, uh, "research" thus far has been restricted to rumors and Instagram pics, now we can finally witness the campaign in all of its hi-res glory! Straight from the brand itself, these pics showcase Rita showing off her true sneaker steez— making even a long silk dress and a full face of makeup look streetwear-cool with her tan lowtops. Complete with soft, Marilyn Monroe-esque waves and retro sunglasses, Rita's look has fully convinced us to push the rest of our shoe stash aside for the moment. This spring, it's ALL about sneakers. #sorryimnotsorry

It's one thing to obsess over Spring Breakers from afar, over the internet, or from that perfect seat halfway toward the back of the movie theater. But it's a totally different situation (and obviously a WAY better one) to obsess over the new Harmony Korine film with one of the stars herself! Yep, we're talking about Ashley Benson, who invited us to come visit her at the Faviana HQ in New York City—she's the face of the special occasion dress brand—and dish on allllll stuff fashion. In between talking about prom (we'll have more on that later...stay tuned!), Ashley filled us in on what it was really like filming Spring Breakers down in Florida with Selena, Vanessa, Rachel and James. She also gave us the lowdown on how RELIEVED she was to sport shorts and sneakers on the regular (comfiest costumes ever?!), her favorite premiere outfits, and how she and the rest of the cast always discuss their red carpet ensembles beforehand. Oh, and another thing: although Ashley seems like a great girl on Instagram and in other press interviews, she's even cooler and nicer in person. But don't just take our word for it...see for yourself in our exclusive chat below!
Items from the Opening Ceremony x 'Spring Breakers' clothing line.

Never mind the fact that we're still dealing with the aftermath of a freaking SNOWSTORM here in New York City right now...for the past few months, our brains have been in full summer mode, flooded with neon, bikinis, and warm weather dreaming thanks to Spring Breakers. And when we learned last week that Opening Ceremony was teaming up with the film's costume designer on a collection inspired by the flick (!!!), it made this winter denial even easier and our obsession with the Harmony Korine flick that much more intense. But here's the good news: we don't have to wait long to sport these hoodies, bracelets, towels, and beachwear, because the collection officially lands at OC this Friday. Oh, and as a bonus, we've got a sneak peek of the goods right here!

If we've learned anything from Fashion Weeks past, performance outfits, and the lyrics themselves, it's that Kanye West, 2 Chainz, and A$AP Mob have their ears to the ground in the fashion scene. Seriously, these guys are CLUED IN, and now, we owe them a huge "thank you" for tipping us off to our newest style obsession, Katie Eary. This London-based designer may only be a few years out of school, but already, she's beloved by rap stars and fashion kids alike. Shortly after graduating from the Royal College of Art, Eary has racked up an insane resume—creating custom pieces for Kate Moss (her first gig!), gaining critical acclaim for her womenswear and menswear lines, and winning a fan base that reads like MTV's Hottest MCs VIII List. The hip hop world is fawning over Eary's decadent designer-meets-streetwear creations, from her gilded skate decks to her graphic separates splashed with digital prints of octopus, goldfish, and screaming cheetahs (which are entirely as awesome as they sound). Want proof of Katie's closerthanclose connection to music? Just this week, 2 Chainz rocked one of her Spring/Summer looks in his new "Crack" music video, she dropped a new fashion film soundtracked by none other than the A$AP Mob, and that's only the beginning. Get the lowdown from the designer herself below!
Angel Haze, Macklemore, and Karen O. sport fringe jackets.

As Macklemore so aptly put it in "Thrift Shop," "John Wayne ain't got nothing on my fringe game." It was true then, and the words are still ringing true now, thanks to the singer's TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY on-point fringe game from SXSW. That Southwest blanket vest-type thing he sported at the Woodies might have a permanent place in our hearts, but the brown fringe number he worked at the Perez Hilton party comes in as a close second, because duh, it's amazing. Paired with a classy polka dot button-up and some layered gold necklaces, the look is a sort of Western gentleman ensemble we can totally get behind. We know, we know...fringe jackets aren't exciting groundbreaking— a quick breeze through your local vintage store or a rundown of Taylor Swift and Lana Del Rey's recent music videos will tell you that. But what was old is clearly new again, and there's no better rep of that fact than Angel Haze, whose trimmed topper got a seriously modern edge at SXSW.
