Aubrey Plaza for 'Complex.'

The last time we spotted Aubrey Plaza on a magazine cover, she was snuggling up to a cat on the front page of Bust. Now she's posing with another prop for the April/May issue of Complex, but instead of a cuddly animal the actress is double fisting two cans of silly string?! Yep, our favorite Parks and Rec star is showing her funny side yet again for the mag, dressed in a simple pink romper and adorned with some, um, festive accessories (if you can even call silly string that...?). She also shows her stuff inside the feature posing with a bear mask, banana peels, AND a Whoopie Cushion, all while still managing to squeeze in some impressive smize action. Hey Tyra, better watch your back!
The Google x adidas "Talking Shoe" in action.

Between Google Glass on the runway, designer smartphones as the norm, and model cams during Fashion Week, there's absolutely NO question that fashion is on a fast-track to Techsville these days. But despite all these crazy-cool innovations, the latest project in the pipe just might be the wildest one yet. Google and adidas have joined forces on a new sneaker that, thanks to some super slick features, is capable of turning into a smart-talking shoe with a major personality. Sure, the futuristic concept might SOUND all Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century and whatnot, but it's actually way simpler than you'd think. Here's the lowdown: the aptly-named Talking Shoe seems like regular 3-stripe adidas at first glance, but once you look closer you'll see that there's speaker connected to the tongue that's capable of speaking 250 phrases...in a highly dignified British accent, we might add.
Zooey Deschanel for 'InStyle.'

From princess frocks to Old Hollywood beauty to a consistently on-point nail art game, Zooey Deschanel KNOWS what works for her. The actress just gets it, and she's repping her signature girly sensibility on the cover of the annual April "Color" issue of InStyle, looking radiant in a bright red dress embellished with a giant back bow. Paired with almost no jewelry (save for a couple of rings) and a fresh-faced makeup look that causes her blue eyes practically pop right off the page, this gorgeous photo is a lesson in effortless glam that we can ALL use. But her cover look isn't the only thing we learned from the issue, which hits newsstands Friday. Inside, the actress dished on her personal style philosophy, stating that “Style isn’t when you buy yourself the most expensive things. It’s being creative and able to put together what you’ve collected.” Well said, Zooey. Noted!
Supra x Harmony Korine's 'Spring Breakers' sneakers.

If you've seen the trailer for Spring Breakers as embarrassingly many times as we have (read: more than a dozen), then you're WELL AWARE that Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine spend about 90% of the movie in college girl-on-vacay- essentials like bikinis, tank tops, and sneakers. But even if you're not lucky enough to be hitting the beach anytime soon, that's ok— Supra's making sure that you can nab the Spring Breakers look right this second with its brand new style of kicks. The shoe company has joined forces with the film's director Harmony Korine on a limited-edition lowtop inspired by the flick...and judging from the collective gasp heard thoughtout the MTV Style office when we first spotted them, we haven't been THIS excited about a collab in a reallyyy long time.
Skrillex and the new G-Star "Illwood" jean.

OK, so we already know there are about a zillion and one reasons out there to love Skrillex. His addictive dark, throbbing music (which we can soon hear in Spring Breakers, ahhh!). That signature half-shaved 'do, which has inspired an entire celeb fan following AND has even garnered its own name and hashtag, #Skrillexhair. His sleek, all-black personal style. While all of these traits are impressive, it's this undeniable steez that fits most perfectly with the artist's new gig, collaborating with denim giant G-Star. But while the producer has mostly stuck with scoring the brand's videos until now, we just got word that now he's dipping his hands into the design side of the biz with a brand new style of jeans. Get the scoop below!

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.
