Unless you happen to be one of those lucky people who never gets hot and sweaty (seriously though, what's their sercret?!), looking cute at a festival like Coachella is a tough feat to pull off. We're talking about a situation where you're sitting outside all day under the beating sun, surrounded by thousands of pushing people all elbowing to see the same band you want to...not exactly a picture-perfect moment. But hey, it IS possible, and some of our MTV Style favorites are here to prove it. It seemed like everyone and their mother hit Indio for weekend 1 of the fest, and over the course of 72 hours, some key trends emerged. Whether it's stars like Solange sporting ladylike dresses, Karen O in crazy prints, K.Stew in her trademark snapback, or Vanessa Hudgens in a flower crown (yep, they're still around), these musicians and their famous fans manage to keep cool without sacrificing style. See how they did it below!

Alright, so we all know that Miss Solange Knowles is the reigning queen of festival dressing. Rather than stick with lazy girl options like ripped denim and cropped tops, she cranks up the quirk in retro originals like printed suits and button-ups. She rocked this look hard at SXSW, but this weekend the singer gave her signature style a ladylike spin in a lemon-print sleeveless frock and matching yellow sandals. Not that she would ever need to, but Katy Perry also proved her pinup status at the Lacoste party decked out in a Dolce & Gabbana skirt and bra set (also the same one Iggy Azalea wore in her "Work" music video). Then there's Jessie Ware, rounding out the trio in a red and white striped crop top and printed tea length skirt. Whereas Solange and Katy opted for heels, Jessie shed her shoes to go barefoot during her performance. She topped off her look with some raver pigtail buns, and somehow, we love her even more than before.
Will Ferrell and Rihanna both sported all-over money print, but who did it better?.

There were MANY shocking things about Will Ferrell's cameo at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards last night. And although his, um, unexpected encounter with Aubrey Plaza on stage is providing more than enough water cooler convo this morning, the comedian's all-over money print suit is the image that's forever burned into our eyeballs. And you know what? We're not even mad about it! Strutting out onstage (to the tune of Pusha T's "Millions," natch), yesterday's "Comedic Genuis" winner gave a whole new meaning to the term "money shot." But our man Will isn't the only one turning the Benjamins into a fashion statement these days—someone ELSE who appreciates a good dollar bill motif every now and then is Rihanna, who wore a holographic money print dress last month during her Diamonds World Tour.
'Teen Wolf' stars Holland Roden and Crystal Reed at 2013 MTV Movie Awards.

Aw, talk about team players! The stars of our favorite MTV shows turned out in droves to the MTV Movie Awards to support their Hollywood buds— ahem, and flaunt their major style game, as well. The cast of Teen Wolf rolled especially deep tonight, with six of the actors hitting the red carpet in awesomely individual ensembles. We've already dished on MTV.com Red Carpet Report Host Holland Roden's black plunging V-neck Donna Karan gown, and yeah, we're still just obsessed with it now as we were earlier this evening. But wait! There's more. Holland may have opted for one of the biggest color trends of the night in her black frock, but co-star Crystal Reed played opposites in her bright lace minidress from Nha Khanh,. With intricate embellishment and a flirty short silhouette, this dress is eyepopping enough on its own, so Crystal kept the rest of her look simple with nude Manolo Blahnik pumps and a Hepburn-esque swept updo. But the girls weren't the only ones pulling out the fashion stops... the show's dudes, Tyler Posey, Dylan O'Brien, Tyler Hoechlin, and Keahu Kahuanui were looking killer (heh), too.
Hayley Williams at 2013 MTV Movie Awards

We thought our girl crush on Hayley Williams couldn't get any bigger. But you know what? We were wrong, because the Paramore frontwoman pretty much made our hearts explode tonight at the MTV Movie Awards, slaying the fashion game in Zara and Topshop! Yep, you read that right. The super-famous, super-talented megastar rocked not one, but TWO of our favorite fast fashion megabrands on the red carpet, meaning we can all copy her outfit, like, now. She paired her Zara black cutout onesie— which, sadly, is sold out in the US but is still in stock overseas— with a striped shirt from Topshop. While the singer stuck with mostly black and whites, clothing-wise, you better bet she brought out the bright colors in her beauty look. This is Hayley Williams we're talking about, y'all! Along with her trademark tangerine (and now half-pink!) hairstyle, she sported some red-orange eyeshadow and lipstick from her new MAC line. And the fact that she matched all of this to her SOCKS? Brilliant.
Hana Mae Lee at 2013 MTV Movie Awards

No lie, we've seen our fair share of pretty outrageous outfits grace the red carpet at past MTV Movie Awards. But few accessories have caused quite as much of a uh, stir, as Hana Mae Lee's cigarette hat. Yes, the Pitch Perfect actress (who we loved as the mostly-silent, always-hilarious Lilly), is definitely wearing an ASHY CIGARETTE. ON HER HEAD. And, she impressively maintains a totally serious expression while doing so. This, you guys, is something that absolutely must be discussed, right?! Right. The comedian said she wanted to pair her cut-out Marco Marco black dress and Ferragamo heels with the Alain Lafaille for He-Ha headpiece in order to make a statement, and that she did .
Karlie Kloss at 2013 MTV Movie Awards.
We've still got a couple of hours til showtime for the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, but leave it to none other than our pre-show correspondent Karlie Kloss to kick tonight's fashion game into high gear— fast! The supermodel hit the red carpet mere minutes ago dressed in a slick white Cushnie et Ochs two-piece ensemble, and duh, she looks killer. With a high neckline and a couple slivers of skin, the tummy-baring number shows off Karlie's seriously toned body and somehow makes her look even more statuesque than normal. Which, you know, is REALLY saying something (of course, those white Gucci heels definitely don't hurt the cause, either!). She topped off the sleeveless top and pencil skirt combo with gold David Yurman jewelry and a fresh-faced beauty look. In short, total minimalist perfection.
WHOA there, Justin Bieber! You definitely didn't give us much notice to mentally prepare for your new "All Around The World Video". Biebs tweeted yesterday, "I have a surprise for all my beliebers tomorrow... #AATWvideo," and while the hashtag kind of gives away the whole surprise element of it all, that's OK, we're glad to get a heads up. Because of this, we were totally eagle-eying Twitter this morning and on our tip-toes ready to pounce on the fashion game as soon as the video premiered. Taking the song's title to heart, the clip follows the star literally around the world, from performances to meet-and-greets to, yes, even an inside peek into his private jet (#swaggy). This tour footage means that we've seen most of these outfits before, but if you think about it, that's a good thing! Consider this sartorial whirlwind your chance to live vicariously through the Biebs (for a few minutes, anyway)... no passport required.

Aw, the video opens with Justin ASLEEP on his private jet! (Side note: Does he actually sleep in a beanie?) But before long we get a glimpse at the rest of his outfit, which includes a black T-shirt, baggy black pants, and olive green sneaks. Moving on...

OK, so this is pretty much the best morning ever... and we're not just saying that because it's Friday (although that's awesome, too). We're exploding with excitement because we've got a double dose of The Bling Ring action coming straight to you, all within the next 12 hours! Hopefully you're already WELL AWARE that we're debuting an exclusive clip and chatting with the film's stars Emma Watson, Katie Chang, Israel Broussard, Taissa Farmiga and Claire Julien at 11 PM EST tonight as the final MTV Movie Awards Sneak Peek Week show on MTV.com. So grab your friends, stock up on popcorn, and make room on the couch, because that's going down later, but first, peep the poster for The Bling Ring right here! The brand spanking new teaser image just landed, and it's throwing some MAJOR shade. Five different kinds of shade, in fact, one for each member of the infamous sticky-fingered crew.
Hey guys! Yes, we're talking to YOU. We all know that prom is a special occasion, a formal event, something you'll remember forever, yadda yadda yadda, but who says you can't be comfortable all night long while you're at it? Proving that prom doesn't have to be stuffy, this week we showed all the dudes out there how to look slick minus the traditional tuxedo action, and now we're taking things a step further (heh) with the very best sneakers to wear to prom. Believe it or not, your favorite casual brands CAN work with formalwear—it's just a matter of how you style 'em. Hey, if Frank Ocean, Logan Lerman, and Russell Westbrook can do it, why can't you? So get the lowdown below... you can thank us later.
KEEP IT CLASSIC WITH COMMON PROJECTS

When it comes to classy sneakers, it really doesn't get more understated and cool than Common Projects. Luxe and subtle, these black leather lace-ups bring an extra dose of style anywhere... even your high school dance floor. While they're definitely not cheap at $390 a pop, Frank Ocean proves that this slick number is definitely worth saving up for. Start counting your pennies now!
Celebrities: they're just like us? Er, not so much...at least when it comes to looking gorgeous on the red carpet. Along with impossibly good genes, we all know the stars have a team of creative masterminds to get their hair, makeup, and nails in tip-top shape for major events. But here's awesome news for those out there who are NOT on Hollywood's A-List (read: everyone else), because these beauty pros are generously willing to divulge their secrets! Earlier this week we filled you in on how to replicate Kristen Stewart, Amanda Seyfried and Sarah Hyland's best hairstyles for prom, and now we're quizzing the makeup artists behind Rihanna, Jennifer Lawrence, and Katy Perry's most glamorous faces. Regardless of whether you're rocking a short dress, a long gown, or anything in between, find out how to copy the looks for prom below!
RIHANNA AT THE 2013 GRAMMY AWARDS

Katniss Everdeen may have bragging rights to the "Fire Dress," but leave it to Rihanna to crank up the heat even higher on the 2013 Grammys scene in a bright red custom Alaia gown. The cherry-colored sheer frock might command our eyeballs initially, but it's Rihanna's classic Old Hollywood makeup look that really seals the deal here: super-long lashes, defined brows, and THAT amazing red lip. According to the pop star's makeup artist Mylah Morales, obtaining a traffic-stopping effect like this one requires a group effort. "Whenever we do anything with the crew, it's a collaboration between everyone," she told us over the phone yesterday. "Basically we find out what Rihanna will be wearing and then discuss the best beauty look." Although Mylah isn't opposed to rocking a statement mouth with dramatic eyes, this time around she says, "I gave her a really clean, matte face so her lips were the focus, especially given her dress." Want to nab the perfect red mouth for yourself? Mylah recommends using a combination of lipliner (she used Cherry from MAC on Ri), a base color (Ruby Woo) and finish things off with Lady Danger to really give a pop of color.
