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.

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?

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?

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.

It's hard to believe it's been FIVE YEARS since we first started crushing on Kate Nash, way back when her whip-smart and earwormy single "Foundations" burst upon the scene in 2007. But good news for everyone with a Kate-shaped hole in our hearts, because she's back! And she's making up for lost time. The London-based singer has a new album appropriately titled Girl Talk, which drops next week, and if her preview track "3 AM" is any indication, expect more of the catchy cleverness we've come to associate with the musician. Just before her new release, Kate stopped by MTV and we took the opportunity to quiz her on ALL things fashion. With a penchant for vintage dresses, some serious knowledge about the London design scene, and a rad philosophy on keeping fashion fun, this is a lady who knows a thing or two about style. So grab your notebooks, y'all, and get schooled by Kate Nash in our exclusive interview below!

If you're anything like us, Carly Rae Jepsen's high-flying breakup anthem "Tonight I'm Getting Over You" has comfortably weaseled its way into your consciousness, whether you realized it or not. But regardless of HOW the song got there, let's all agree that we're really, really glad it did. While the "Call Me Maybe" songstress's followup is just as earwormy as her 2012 summer breakout, her new music video for the track showcases some key changes taking place in Carlyland. The singer is slightly more grown up now, after all, and so is her wardrobe. The clip follows Carly and her BF (played by Brandon Gray) throughout the course of their relationship, and that means LOTS of outfit changes.
