Imagine if you could buy Solange's 2012 Met Gala dress?

Moda Operandi, how do you keep making our 2013 Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art dreams come true? First there was the PUNK: Chaos to Couture inspired designer capsule collection, and now the runway-to-retail innovator is taking it one step further: come May 7th, you'll actually be able to buy the dresses right off of the Met Gala red carpet. Details are limited, but Popsugar reports that the designers involved in the collab include Anthony Vaccarello, Wes Gordon, Balmain, Nina Ricci, and maybe more. Each of the designers worked alongside Moda Operandi's Indre Rockefeller, who serves as Director of Ready-To-Wear for the site, on the sale, and although there is still no word as to which celebs will be wearing the get-em-now gowns, with designers like those we can only surmise that they'll be major.

Katy Perry at the White House Correspondents' Dinner and at the Lincoln Memorial over the weekend.

If you want a guidebook for how to do spring dressing right, look no further than Katy Perry. The singer has transitional dressing down pat, and her recent weekend in Washington for the White House Correspondents' Dinner is a perfect example. For the big night, Katy wore a luminescent green Giambattista Valli gown with natural, branch-like detailing at the waist. The color reminded us a lot of Katy's mint green Gucci Grammys dress, and has us wondering if we're going to be seeing the singer in more leafy hues as the warmer months progress. The strapless gown looks almost to be made of acetate, with the green giving way to brown in places, lending the whole look a very fairy-like vibe. In keeping with the natural tone, Katy wore her makeup neutral, with a pink lip and subtly-lined eye taking no shine away from the dress. Her hair was also loose and natural, pushed to the side in thick curls.

Illamasqua glo polish

There's no doubt that the '90s are back, and with them comes a hearty dose of rave-inspired fashion. Some of us, however, are still being treated for the emotional scars caused by our own forays into rave dressing in our youths (nightmares of parachute pants and double buns haunt our dreams), and aren't ready to dive head first into the trend. That doesn't mean we have to be pariahs, however, and with Illamasqua's new Paranormal UV nail polish collection, we can bring that glowstick vibe into our day to day lives without having to make too much of a commitment. The collection will be available in stores and online April 30th.

Frank Ocean, Miguel, Justin Timberlake Time 100

This year's Time 100 list of the most influential people of the year felt a little bit like it was made with input from our very own brains. Some of our favorite musicians, politicians, and thinkers were honored, and they turned out in their very best at Time's celebration last night. In particular, some VERY well-dressed gentlemen stood out. Frank Ocean left his usual sneakers at home in exchange for a totally traditional tuxedo and *gasp* dress shoes. Can you believe it? We're into it. Meanwhile, Miguel went in the opposite direction, bringing a splash of bright blue to the otherwise pretty classic red carpet in black pants and a graphic, mirror print button-down. He accessorized the springtime look with black chelsea boots and assorted rings. Back on his suit and tie...well, you know, Justin Timberlake took Frank's lead in a classic tux with a crosshatch patterned jacket that we would be willing to bet is by his friend Tom Ford. Justin looked positively rakish with his hair parted to the side and falling in front of his face just a little bit. Handsome gentlemen, all. *Sigh*

The Bling Ring Trailer

It seems pretty fair to say that at some point or another nearly everyone has entertained fantasies of being famous, or, as Israel Broussard's character Marc puts it in the new trailer for The Bling Ring, of "living the lifestyle" of young Hollywood. The clothes, the parties, the supposed freedom of having unlimited wealth and access... it's all extremely appealing, especially when you're a bored high school kid without much more to do than drive around with your friends. In the new trailer, we get to see more of the film than we have before, and to hear some of the dialogue. We also get a look into Paris Hilton's epic shoe closet, and which is like a Manolo enthusiasts heaven. The film is a slick, stylish portrayal of a group of kids who have no idea what's going on in the world, and just want in on something that in reality doesn't exist. With cameos from Paris herself and Kirsten Dunst, it's also clear that director Sofia Coppola pulled out all the stops to make the film as realistic as possible, and that makes us all the more excited to see it come June.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire in Brooks Brothers for The Great Gatsby.

We love The Great Gatsby already, and we haven't even seen it yet. The sartorial gift that keeps on giving, we've been totally enamored of each trailer and snippet of info that we've received in the lead up, and the flow of new and sparkly things doesn't seem to be stopping anytime soon. As serious fans of a classically well dressed man, we were quite intrigued when we heard that Brooks Brothers would be working with costume designer Catherine Martin on the costumes for the men in the film. In a new video from GQ, the costume designer goes in-depth about working with the clothier to not only dress the leading men on the screen, but also each of the male extras.

Demi Lovato behind the scenes of her video for "Heart Attack."

If there's anyone who knows about a brave comeback, it's Demi Lovato. We all watched Demi's beyond triumphant return to the spotlight in Stay Strong, but little did we know that her video for "Heart Attack" was another kind of comeback, albeit a smaller one. Remember Demi's studded orthopedic boot at the Los Angeles Topshop store opening? Well, that broken ankle had the singer in that boot for weeks, making the idea of putting heels on again a little scary (to say the least!). There was a benefit to Demi's reticence to move around in her heels, though. "I'm not moving around that much," Demi says, "but I guess it was good because I was able to perform more through my face and my emotions and my body language."

Madonna's Jean Paul Gaultier cone bra and MTV VMA dress will both be on display this week.

There's a good chance that if you're playing one of those word association games and someone says "Madonna," your first, or maybe second, or third, but definitely no more than that, will be "cone bra." The singer's most iconic look, the Jean Paul Gaultier lingerie item was a staple of Madonna's 1990 Blond Ambition Tour, and now thanks to Macy's and Madge herself, you can see it in real life for a super-limited time. Madonna is already a staple at Macy's stores with her Material Girl collection, but on Thursday, April 25th, the star is lending the cone bra and seven other iconic Madonna pieces to the store's Los Angeles Century City location for a two hour exhibition. And it's not just the cone bra, trust. With the help of her longtime stylist Arianne Phillips, Madonna's personally selected the items on display, and there are some MAY-JOR moments represented.

Jennifer Lawrence at the GLAAD Media Awards.

With the change in seasons comes that itchy, nagging desire to switch things up, have a fresh start, throw everybody off, and now that Jennifer Lawrence cut off her long hair in exchange for a shaggy, layered cut floating just above her shoulders, we're REALLY thinking about taking the plunge. How cute does she look?! Jennifer premiered her new 'do at the 24th Annual Glaad Media Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday, showing it off as the centerpiece of her otherwise minimal all-black ensemble. A play on her usual strapless silhouette, her David Koma Fall 2013 cocktail dress comes with a sheer neckline and sleeves, and strikes just the right balance of chic and girly. Not to mention, the frock's clean lines offset the added texture of her new haircut perfectly.

A still from Cat Power's Manhattan video.

While Chan Marshall, more commonly known as Cat Power, was filming her music video for "Manhattan," a busker in a New York subway station told her, "you're even more rock and roll than me." She tells me this over the phone, from the back of a car on her way to the airport where she is about to fly to London to perform on Later...with Jools Holland. She laughs as she tells the story, like the notion of her, a woman whose most recent album, Sun, debuted at number 10 on the Billboard Top 200, being more rock and roll than a man wailing away on an electric guitar in a train station is absolutely absurd, and don't I agree? I tell her she's pretty rock and roll herself, but she's not buyin' it. "I never set out to be a rock star," she says.

Marshall is a woman who, even after nearly twenty years of touring, putting out albums, appearing in a Chanel campaign, and soundtracking the design house's 2012 pre-fall show, still seems genuinely surprised by her success. Surprised, or wary that they're confusing her for someone else. They're most assuredly not, though, and Marshall is undoubtedly one of the most singular, compelling, and enigmatic musicians alive today. The video for "Manhattan"—a melancholy yet joyful ode to city streets with a galloping beat and a swinging, earworm of a melody—shows Marshall walking confidently through the New York City streets with her hair cropped short and dyed blond, alternating between a denim jacket and a leather one, both emblazoned with a rune-like 'C-P' symbol on the back. It's a nostalgic love song of a video, co-directed by Marshall and Greg Hunt, representing but one important city out of the many places she has lived, and lives she has had. It's all of these lives that created the singular, enigmatic artist, as well as shaped her undeniably chic (Karl Lagerfeld cast her in his Chanel campaign after seeing her standing on the street outside of the Mercer Hotel), effortless style. From a rough and tumble Georgia childhood to living with legendary '80s designer Patrick Kelly, a great many things have shaped Marshall's signature, minimalist style, anchored by jeans, boots, leather and jean jackets (all mostly provided by ACNE, who give Marshall her touring wardrobe) and, of course, black eyeliner. There's a lot more to it than that, though, and we caught up with Chan to get the whole story, and what a story it is.

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