Jump From Paper's Cheese! bag.

You know those moments when you pass a store window and see something that makes your eyes bug out of your head and weird "AWOOOGA! AWOOOGA!" noises flood your psyche? Well, that's exactly what happened when we spied these insane two-dimensional bags from Jump From Paper. Founded by design duo Chay Su and Rika Lin "one cozy afternoon" in Taipei, Taiwan, the line came together over a conversation on how cool it would be to make hand-drawn illustrations come to life in the form of handbags. The results may look like exactly like 2-D cartoons but they're actually totally 3-D functional bags; in fact, the one question Su and Lin always get is, "Are they real?" They are, indeed, but if you squint your eyes like we keep doing it doesn't look possible.

It's Upfront season! What in the heck does this mean? Well, it's the time of year when TV networks celebrate which of their shows are returning as well as reveal new shows for their upcoming seasons. If you're a weirdly rabid TV watcher (HI) then this is super happy fun times with surprise pudding and sprinkles on top and even more so when it involves ABC Family. The stars of the network, namely Shailene Woodley of The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Lucy Hale of mega hit Pretty Little Liars, and Chelsea Kane of the upcoming series Baby Daddy were all a part of the happy hoopla and even started their own with the choice to wear pants. We mean trousers. (Same diff, really, but in other parts of the world, "pants" mean something else entirely...Google it.) Still, TROUSERS! With bright colors! This is a new thing, right?

Ever wonder what my favorite uncle Karl Lagerfeld gets up to in a typical 24 hour period? Yeah, me too. For some reason, he's still not taking my phone calls, so it's not like I can ask him personally. Still, I've always imagined the designer, photographer, Chanel creative director, and all-around inspirational polymat spent tons of time reading, sketching, designing, drinking Diet Coke, and stroking his favorite kitten princess, Choupette. Well, it turns out I was correct about all of that, but had NO CLUE about King Karl's predilection for staying in his jimmy-jams (PJ's for those of you who have never slept over) until noon, his breakfast of choice, the truth about his hair regime, and the fact that he doesn't even think about tiptoeing into the office until 5 p.m. But thanks to the fine folks over at Harper's Bazaar —who clearly have more pull than Karl's own [imaginary] NIECE, for goodness sakes—we now know all about KL's ponytailed daily routine. Wait, strike the word routine. Monsieur Lagerfeld hates it apparently.

Tavi Wren

We don't know how you spent your weekend, but a perfect one would involve frolicking in '60s-infused dresses, an impromptu acoustic guitar jam sesh, and lady makeup galore. Add girl-crush-hero and Rookie mag editor Tavi Gevinson to the mix, and you're talking dream weekend territory here. Interestingly enough, this is not a daydream but a reality, and one that was chronicled in its entirety this weekend via the magic of Twitter and Instagram. Orchestrated for the elegantly laid-back LA clothing line Wren (one of our faves!), the directing duo of Maximilla Lukacs and Sarah Sophie Flicker—otherwise known as The Belles of the Black Diamond Field—shot Tavi for an upcoming fashion film for the label, and they captured her in MUSIC MODE with guitar in hand, her hair coiffed to sophisticated perfection. You might remember Miss Gevinson's recent musical foray in the animated short film "Cadaver", in which she sang a tender and beautiful rendition of Neil Young's "Heart of Gold". Will she be singing something for Wren? Also, what is this film all about? We spoke to Sarah Sophie Flicker about all of the girl power goings-on...

Remember that time we told you how much we wished we were basking in the BBQ pit-lit glow of taco-infused musical mecca fantasticness better known as the SXSW music festival? Yeah, we're still dreaming about hitching a ride on a magic carpet to capture those last moments left of the fest this weekend. Alas, we have more SXSW style shenanigans to make us feel like we're actually there, including some sparkle motion courtesy of Gossip's Beth Ditto, modern minimalism from electro high priestess Zola Jesus, and the cutest in sailor romper wear from Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino. Did we mention there's a shirtless appearance by Lil Wayne?

Easily one of the most recognized women on the planet, Jennifer Lopez is having a fashion moment. Yes, she's had MANY throughout her decades-long music and film career. Who can ever forget that history-making cut-down-to-there Grammy dress? YOWZA. But now that she's captured a nation's heart as one of American Idol's most beloved judges, there's even more rabid attention being made about each outfit she wears on the show. (And she turns it OUT night after night waltzing to her seat in an array of peacock color ensembles and to-die-for heels.) Thus, it's no surprise to see her on the coveted April cover of Vogue magazine stunning our eye sockets in red. Seriously, though, our eyes are popping out of our heads with this shoot.

santigold sxsw 2012

At exactly this time every year, an incredibly loud music and fashion spectacular of creative bacchanalia proportions takes place in Austin, Texas. You might have heard of it… a little festival called SXSW? Yeah, we're pretty miffed we're not there right now, too. *sighs flicks hair* While SOME of the MTV Style crew is there whooping it up at outdoor shows, tacos held happily aloft in hands, the rest of us are here to watch from afar. And if there's any one artist kicking it out with fashionably loud style thus far (and enough for us to feel somewhat satiated by her mere photographic presence alone), it's Santigold. Not only does Santi rock both her street and performance style with equally ferocious aplomb, she isn't afraid to change it up repeatedly throughout the course of a day.

Though we know her as the sprightly Alice Cullen in The Twilight Saga, actress Ashley Greene has branched out from the cinematic world of vampires and into the fashion spotlight as the face of DKNY. Always a red carpet fave, her latest acting endeavor takes her sartorial prowess a step further, as she's set to play a young fashion designer in the upcoming TV show Americana. Though strictly in pilot mode at the moment, and not yet confirmed as to whether or not it will make it onto the air permanently, we can at least bask in street-style shots of her on location in New York wearing super cute threads—namely this Topshop Daisy Dogs Shirtdress ($96).

nicki minaj pink bikini starships

Who is the queen of hyper-color hair? Easy, Nicki Minaj, of course! Willing to go the extra mile (light-year?) on the red carpet, in music videos, for performances, and at awards shows, Miss Minaj always goes for it where both her hair and whimsical ensembles are concerned. In the last few months alone, she's gone bright pink and curly for Allure (not to mention rag-doll Marie Antoinette in the fashion department), leprechaun green for Paper, and switched from a purple to a neon green wig all during the same NBA All-Star performance. Gurl loves to switch up her hair game, and for that we bow to her. But what's this latest hurrr-incarnation? Miss M was photographed on a Hawaiian beach in looooong, flat-ironed neon green hair AND a hot pink bikini. What's going on here?

st. patrick's day accessories

Yes, folks, it's time for yet another holiday requiring suitable clothing in which to celebrate. We're talking about Saint Patrick's Day, of course, and the necessity of even the tiniest smidgen of GREEN upon our person. Is that deliriously jovial pipe music and distant banshee wailing we hear? Yeahhh, we HEAR YA. Perhaps there are some of you who go for the full-on regalia of furry leprechaun hat, green dress, tights, shoes, and a version of literal or metaphorical brewski glasses, but there are also some of us who prefer little to no shamrock shenanigans. That's not to say that we're total grouches about the Irish holiday, it's just that A) some of us are quiet, and B) the rest of us don’t really go for an all-over kelly or forest or even neon green type of fashion affair. Thus, what are we to do about celebrating in style aside from tying green string around our wrists to avoid a day full of prods and pinches? ACCESSORIZE. In GREEN. No worries, we've got ya covered. (But not in Astroturf.)

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