Have you guys been suffering from I Just Want My Pants Back withdrawals as much as we have? Yeah, it's rough. But we've got good news, because Jason— sorry, Peter Vack— has returned to the small screen! Well, kind of. The actor is the star of 7 For All Mankind's Spring 2013 campaign video, "A Beautiful Odyssey," which debuted yesterday online. Photographed and directed by the one and only James Franco and co-starring former hockey pro Sean Avery, the mini film is a choose-your-own-adventure story that's stocked with some soap opera-worthy scandal. Expect a botched wedding, a love triangle, and some hot and steamy moments (plus cute clothes, of course), and the best part is, YOU get to choose what happens. Intrigued? Find out more below!
It was the fashion mystery of the internet just mere days ago: WHO designed Katniss' wedding dress in these new The Hunger Games: Catching Fire character portraits? Well, the answer has emerged... and it's not who we (or anyone else, really) predicted! According to The Hollywood Reporter, the creation comes courtesy of Indonesian designer Tex Saverio. They got the scoop from the flick's costume designer herself, Trish Summerville, who revealed, "Katniss’ white gown is by a designer named Tex Saverio in Jakarta. He is amazing! I found his designs quite some time ago and saved his information for a perfectly fitting project, then came Catching Fire – perfect!" Inspired by a dress he had debuted earlier, which came adorned with a metal bodice, the wedding gown has a similar metal top. But THIS time, it's covered in Swarovski crystals, pieces rising up intended to represent fire, as well as Mockingjay-esque feathers.

Excuse us for a second while we have a quick freakout session because YOU GUYS... Hayley Williams is teaming up with MAC Cosmetics on a makeup collection! Oh, and get this— it's ALL orange. How perfect, right? Following in the super glam footsteps of recent MAC celeb collaborators like Rihanna and Nicki Minaj, the Paramore frontwoman has joined forces with the beauty company on a 4-piece line, out in April. And according to Hayley, the partnership is totally organic. As she explained to People StyleWatch about her decision to collab with MAC, “I didn’t wear makeup at all. Photographers would beg me to wear chapstick and I’d say no...I went to a [store] and picked up orange eyeshadow from MAC, that was the beginning of the end. It’s been key in making me feel like I have an onstage personality.” Makeup has been a big part of Hayley's star transformation in both performances and music videos, like the band's new clip for "Now", and we can't wait to see what the collection looks like in person. Get even more details on the collab below!

Whether you're talking about snapbacks or sweatshirts, it's safe to say that everything Kenzo designers Humberto and Leon Carol Lim stamp with their splashy prints turns to gold. And although we're still swooning over the pair's recent Fall 2013 collection during Paris Fashion Week, we don't even have to wait until next season to score the brand's latest project. In fact, it's available next week! How's THAT for instant gratification, you guys? For the fourth time the label has teamed up with Vans on a capsule collection of sneakers stamped with their wildly colorful patterns, and they're SO cute, we're officially dubbing them the shoes of summer.

It's March, and you know what that means...festival season is upon us, y'all! While your SXSW, Coachella, and Lollapalooza plans might still be up in the air, Forever 21 has got you covered in the wardrobe department (phew!). The retail giant has just debuted a brand new Festival 2013 Capsule Collection, and the dreamy campaign is fronted by none other than the ULTIMATE festival darling herself, Sky Ferreira. The pop star is no stranger to killer onstage fashion, and since she's slated to perform at this month's SXSW, Coachella in April, and Pitchfork in July, we'll be seeing a lot more of her '90s schoolgirl style this summer. And yes, that's a VERY good thing.
Sky Ferreira, Frank Ocean, Amanda Seyfried, and Ciara attend shows at Paris Fashion Week.

Fashion Month can seem like a long one, what with the whirlwind of cities, designers, celebrities—oh, AND a thing called award shows thrown in to shake up the mix. It might be crazy while it's all happening, but then before we know it, the catwalks are rolled up yet again, and the shows are over for yet another season. Today marks the fashion finale in Paris, but before you start blinking back your Lauren Conrad tear™ (we kid, we kid), don't worry. There were enough celeb attendees at Paris Fashion Week to last us alllll the way until September...or, at the very least, to soften the blow. Front row mainstays like Sky Ferreira hit up Givenchy and Saint Laurent, whereas Frank Ocean made his Fashion Week debut at Christian Dior and later followed up with Givenchy, Valentino and Chanel. Not too shabby, right? Amanda Seyfried headed straight from the Oscars to Givenchy, and she was joined there by Ciara, who killed it in a chic long-sleeved black gown. Then, there were the duos.

We're still admittedly giddy from Jennifer Lawrence's epic Oscars win last month, but you know what? It's officially time to put the past behind us (for now) and move on to J.Law's NEWEST project: a little film you might have heard of called The Hunger Games. The flick won't premiere until November, but this week we've been sneaking peeks via Capitol Couture of the characters decked out in, well, couture. Yes, literally. Whereas the first film's costume designer Judianna Makovsky stuck with pared-down Americana looks and retro clothes from the '30s, THIS movie's designer Trish Summerville gave Katniss, Effie Trinket, Haymitch and Caesar a makeover directly from the runways. Recognize the similarities between Effie's flame-red gown and this look from Alexander McQueen's Fall 2012 collection above? The flouncy organza ruffles, the strapless top, the exaggerated waist...talk about IDENTICAL! If Effie's dress is "Phresh Out The Runway" (sorry, Rihanna reference), then that means Katniss' white gown-slash-probable-wedding-dress most likely is, too...right?
AnnaSophia Robb at H&M's Denim Days event.

Anyone who's as addicted to The Carrie Diaries as we are knows that AnnaSophia Robb is totally charming as a young Carrie Bradshaw on the new CW series. Plus, we've got to admit— there aren't THAT many girls we know who can pull off poofy skirts and even poofier hair with the same adorableness as this 19-year-old actress. But as great as she is in this SATC prequel, believe it or not, ASR is even more awesome in real life. The actress changed out of her '80s onscreen wardrobe and pulled on the blue jeans to host Denim Days at New York's H&M this weekend where she celebrated the brand's new campaign and hung out with fans, looking like THE perfect spokesmodel in a sparkly blazer and light-wash skinnies from H&M. In between doing the meet-and-greet thing, AnnaSophia Robb chatted with us about her favorite pair of jeans, the denim-on-denim trend, and her ultimate celeb style icon. Any guesses? Watch our exclusive interview below!

We've liked Kat Dahlia for a while now, ever since her smoky soulful breakout single "Gangsta" debuted late last year. However, today the singer has dropped the song's video upon the world and well, let's just say we're officially obsessed. Shot in her Miami hometown, the clip follows the 21-year-old throughout her local haunts, with the same gritty flashbacks and shadowy edge that we've come to associate with the autobiographical track. Although Kat's vocal prowess is NOTHING new, something that wasn't quite so obvious— until now, that is— is her killer style. With a self-described "boho urban glam" wardrobe and an affinity for mixing designer and fast fashion, we got the chance to quiz her on all this and more when she stopped by MTV recently. Check out our exclusive interview with Kat Dahlia below!
Miley Cyrus shows off her new haircolor.

To state the obvious, it has been a HUGE couple of months for Miley Cyrus and her hair. We all remember when the singer first took the short hair plunge back in the summer, right?! Then she went even shorter in the fall, revealing a close side-cropped 'do. And now, after inspiring fellow pixie fans like Lena Dunham to chop hers off and earning a slot on our Best Hair of 2012 list, the pop star has taken her new look up a notch, tinting her bottle-blonde locks EVEN lighter than before with shimmery silver highlights. She showed off the change in Los Angeles on Friday while heading into the studio, and subsequently sent Twitter into overdrive about her new "blue" color. However, Miley was quick to clear the air that the hue isn't actually blue like everyone originally thought.
