Lady Gaga tweets a photo of herself.

As she's probably well aware, anytime our Mother Goddess—that's Lady Gaga to you monsters-in-training—posts a photo of herself doing something faboo or totally normie-tastic, we're all over it. And now that we're in waiting mode until the launch of her Born This Way Ball (which promises a Monster Pit!) we'll take anything we can get. Lucky for all of us, Mother Monster knows how to tide us over with regular tweeting, and she recently gifted us with a new makeup-free photo complete with strong brows and an errant rose behind her ear. What's going on here, Lady G?

Little known fact: according to Sephora + Pantone Universe, "Tangerine Tango" is the color of the year. The beauty retailer and color experts joined forces to "become beauty's leading authority on color," believing that color can truly transform your face and mood, and they decreed orange the official hue of 2012. We've noticed dreamsicle lipstick shades all over the place lately, too, from top-knotted hipsters at coffee shops in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, to red carpet faves like Ke$ha, Solange Knowles, and Emmy Rossum. What's so interesting about this bright coral-esque color is that it flatters everyone and goes with a variety of outfits, making even the most monochromatic of ensembles pop.

Jennifer Lawrence for German "Interview" magazine.

In case you've been hibernating or took a brief sojourn to a distant planet, The Hunger Games opened this weekend to universal pandemonium. (PANEM-onium? Heh.) It pretty much dominated all conversation over the course of three days (as well as social media feeds, #srsly), and, as predicted, Jennifer Lawrence has been catapulted to mega-stardom for her searing portrayal of lead character Katniss Everdeen. Not only did she make the rounds of practically every talk show last week (even telling David Letterman that she was "a troll"), the fash media tracked her every style move, including that to-die gold Prabal Gurung dress she wore to the premiere. Well, now there's even more frenzy-making J-Law action to discuss regarding her Vegas showgirl leotard moment on the cover of Interview Germany.

A Marc Jacobs "Wanted" t-shirt.

Back in November, the entire Marc Jacobs spring 2012 collection was stolen from a train on its way from Paris to London. Remember that? Us, too. It was, how do you say, le BIG DEAL. The dastardly perpetrator is still at large but, luckily, the Marc Jacobs team rallied and reproduced the entire line. What's more, they had a sense of humor about it all. Not only did MJ put a giant train on the runway of his fall 2012 Louis Vuitton show (was this a gentle nod to the MJ collection theft?) he is now selling a hilarious $28 WANTED t-shirt bearing a sketch of the presumed thief.

In the words of Effie Trinket (played by the zhamazing Elizabeth Banks), "Happy Hunger Games!!!" Yes, it is finally game day, aka release day for the much-anticipated, completely awesome film adaptation of The Hunger Games book series. If you didn't catch a midnight showing or are waiting to go this weekend, all we can say is it was totally worth the wait. Also, we're obsessed with anything regarding the movie, such as Hunger Games accessories and over-the-top Effie Trinket nails. We were perusing recently, which is fantastic BTW, and came across this nail post featuring Effie's INSANE nail tips, which got us guys, is it time to EFF up our nail game?

Happy spring! Not only have we said hello to a full hour more of sunshine every day, many of us are experiencing warmer-than-usual temps and, as a result, have started to pull out the spring threads. What's so exciting about spring styles this year is that there's an emphasis on sportswear (double emphasis on sports), which is a laid-back and comfy look that is totally easy to re-create. Many designers showed athletic-inspired collections for spring—from Kenzo's sun visors to Rag & Bone's surf chic—and thanks to our fave online stores, there's a wide variety of tank dresses, parachute jackets, and wedge booties to help get our game on. Be forewarned: Backpacks are BACK.

If there's one way to rock the sporty look, it's with a tank dress. While this is mos' def a mega body-conscious choice, we suggest pairing one with a slouchy pullover or tossing a jacket on to help break up the cinched-in effect of it all. We like this neon tangerine Nasty Gal x MINKPINK Amy Dress that features a typical swimmer's racerback cut in the front. The hot pink Forever 21 Zipper Front Colorblock Dress is also a fun choice and screams scuba. (Can one scream while scuba-ing? Something to ponder.) Bonus points if you wear this with Zinka stripes under your eyes too. If you're not into the body-con dress, though, go for this ASOS Jumpsuit in Wave Print, which is super cute, relaxed, and Kenzo-esque. Oh, and you're gonna need coverups for all of these looks. No worries, we got ya covered.

Jersey Shore may be over for the season, but that doesn't mean filming has stopped for Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni "JWOWW" Farley. The gals are out and about in Jersey City filming their new spinoff show, and despite Snooki's burgeoning baby bump, the guidette gal pals seem to be all about accentuating their style game with flower accessories. Remember how wearing flowers in your hair used to be a thing not necessarily reserved for weddings? Perhaps Snooks and J are trying to bring the look back into the regular everyday boppin' around Jersey fash vernacular...or maybe they're inspired by *gasp* The Hunger Games?

hunger games accessories katniss everdeen

HAPPY HUNGER GAMES!!!! Holy Eff(ie), we've been waiting for what feels like an eternity for the release of The Hunger Games movie. And now *hyperventilating* it is HERE. Well, almost here, as the official release isn't until this Friday, but we can attest—without saying too much—that this film is beyond the beeeeyyond. You guys, it's EPIC, and if there's any way to get in the full on Katniss Everdeen fighting spirit, we suggest you deck yo'selves out for the release in your respective districts. There's no reason why you shouldn't show your support for the tributes who are risking their lives or tip your ensemble out all citizen of Panem style. (We may loathe their naïveté but their craymazing fash magic is fun to mimic.) Thus, ladies and gentlemen, it is with great pleasure that we share with you some HG accessories to help you battle it out. May the odds (and ends, bits, and baubles) be ever in your favor.


As you know, Katniss Everdeen is who we're all rooting for in the dystopian Hunger Games universe. We follow her journey from hunting enthusiast and District 12 teen to bow and arrow-wielding fighting machine (which demanded rigorous training for star Jennifer Lawrence). We think this Digby & Iona Bluejay Arrow Necklace exemplifies the spirit of Katniss while also tipping its hat to the Mockingjay birds referenced in both the book series and in the film. In keeping with the arrow theme, we'd also wear this Huyana Arrow Cuff, House of Harlow 1960 Antiqued Arrow Ring, and Pamela Love Five Spike Earrings on opening day and every day thereafter. If your love of the Games runs as deep as a district coal mine, though (#sadface), we also suggest you run around town with this District 12 Tribute Tote Bag to show your support of both Katniss and Peeta. But wait! There's more...

MOTHER MONSTER IS BACK!!! Well, just for a brief moment, and not before possibly disappearing again for a rather lengthy bit of time, but no matter, Lady Gaga missed us Little Monsters. As you might recall, she's been rather absent from the public eye recently. Aside from launching the monumental Born This Way Foundation, which we're super excited about (and not just because she wore Sally LaPointe with aerodynamic headgear), Our Lady gave Oprah Winfrey an exclusive peek into the apartment she grew up in. This is the very same cozy abode in which she's currently ensconced, as well, and in the interview she said she would be forgoing any public appearances for quite some time. That is until she recently uploaded a Facebook photo of herself wearing ginormous diamond earrings.

London's Dover Street Market is easily one of coolest stores in the world. Aside from carrying ridic-awesome collections from the likes of Rick Owens, Peter Pilotto, and Celine, they carry a majority of the Comme des Garçons lines, too, the latest of which is in collaboration with A Bathing Ape. Founded in 2004, by CDG designer Rei Kawakubo, the store itself is a multi-floored wonderment of shopping hailed the world over as the epicenter of cutting-edge fashion. What's exciting about this—especially since we're, uh, in the US of A—is that they opened a new store in Tokyo and are expanding… to NYC. We're quietly hugging our knees to our non-existent Play by Comme des Garçons t-shirted chest while rocking back and forth, because this is HUGE.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
