Heaven is a chartreuse velvet gown. On the May cover of Vogue magazine, The Great Gatsby star Carey Mulligan gazes into the camera, her shoulders thrust forward and hand draped over her knee as if she's just asked you a question that she already knows the answer to. She's quite literally dripping in jewelry, but the real star of this cover snap is THAT DRESS. Thick, iridescent yellow-green velvet, draped at the neckline and fitted through the skirt, hugs Carey's body like it was sewn onto her. It's impossible, between the dress and her very jazz-age metallic cloche, not to immediately think of Daisy Buchanan in Gatsby, the lovestruck character Mulligan plays in her upcoming film. Her beauty look, however, is pointedly modern, with a matte, true red lip and a light dusting of blue-green across her eyelids.
Let's give a hearty round of applause to Rebel Wilson, everyone! Our fearless leader through the 2013 Movie Awards, Rebel wore the very heavy hosting hat with humor and grace, and literally made us laugh until our stomachs hurt. Not only did she come out of movie awards a stellar host, she also came out of the show a winner, taking home the golden popcorn in not just one but two categories, both for her role in Pitch Perfect. Rebel took home the Best Musical Moment award with her fellow cast mates AND the Breakthrough Performance award for her solo work in the film. Yay, Rebel! The show took a number of unexpected twists and turns, with our host throwing herself headfirst into some of our favorite movies AND getting into some...uh...compromising positions. All in all, Rebel wore a grand total of SEVEN outfits over the course of the show.

We found our host at the top of the show hangin' out in her native Australia, sharpening her boomerang (or something like that), with no idea she was about to be asked to host the Movie Awards. What does Rebel like to wear while chilling out in the outback? Hot pink sweatsuits with koala bears on them, apparently (but also, of course). She wore this same look in the first musical number of the show, a performance featuring her cast mates from Pitch Perfect.
Mary H.K. Choi and Karlie Kloss talkin' style on the 2013 MTV Movie Awards red carpet.
For our 2013 Movie Awards red carpet wrap-up, me and the indomitable Karlie Kloss froze our frickin’ faceholes off in the unseasonably brisk Los Angeles climate as we chatted about the hottest fashion moments. We’re pretty much in cahoots about who we liked best. We loved Chloe Moretz’s Louis Vuitton denim dress and Karlie’s runaway favorite was Zoe Saldana’s floral, embroidered Givenchy dress with a dramatic thigh slit. Karlie and I also adored Les Miz’s Eddie Redmayne in his distressed leather moto jacket as well as Selena Gomez’s gold Julien Macdonald that featured strands of delicate beads.
Holland Roden interviewing Karlie Kloss on the 2013 MTV Movie Awards red carpet.
Holland Roden has guts, and we're not just talking about being brave enough to wear that plunging (and GORGEOUS) Donna Karan dress. Getting up on the "style stoop," as she called it, to host the 2013 MTV Movie Awards Red Carpet Report requires bravery, even for a seasoned style correspondent like Holland. It's no surprise that she did a fantastic job, chatting with stars from pre-show correspondent and supermodel Karlie Kloss, Chloe Grace Moretz, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, JWoww, and many, MANY others. She got to the bottom of not only what the biggest stars were wearing on the carpet, but also what inspired their looks, what their favorite 2013 trends are, and many more of the burning questions you've been dying to know the answers to. Not to mention, it's SUPER cute to watch Holland get all starstruck while talking to Karlie because, c'mon, you know you would be too.
Quvenzhané Wallis at the 2013 Movie Awards.
There is some incredible accessories game on the 2013 MTV Movie Awards red carpet this year. Glittering, beautiful jewels, yes, but also some more unexpected accoutrements. While a certain cigarette hat may have taken some of the shine on the carpet early on, Beasts of the Southern Wild's Quvenzhané Wallis gave us a bit of a start when we saw that she had broken form and wasn't carrying her signature puppy purse on the carpet. Don't freak out, though, because she WAS still wearing one of her signature Poochie & Co. handbags, only this time, it was a kitty! Q's pink and gray feline matches the hot pink in her outfit, and looks totally purrfect (we had to, come on) with her studded purple high tops.
Chloe Grace Moretz in Louis Vuitton, Topshop, and Jimmy Choo at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.
Move over Texas tuxedo, there's a new all denim look in town. We knew that Carrie star Chloe Grace Moretz would BRING IT at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, but we were not expecting her to totally reinvent the way we think about head-to-toe denim. Chlo Mo styled her Louis Vuitton pre-fall 2013 patchwork denim jumper OVER a Topshop denim shirt with Jimmy Choo heels, keeping the carpet fun in true Movie Awards style. Let's count the washes represented here, shall we? Starting from the top, Chloe's light denim collar is actually a Topshop shirt layered under her LV dress, the bodice of which is a dark denim wash. The skirt is where things really start to get crazy. Variations on traditional denim washes are patched together with one swatch in the classic Louis Vuitton monogram print, a little touch that we LOVE. So what pop star inspired our girl's look tonight? Do we even have to ask?! Rihanna, of course!
Emma Watson is all smiles as she talks about her new film.
Could 2013 be the year of the good girl gone bad...for a movie role? We've certainly seen Emma Watson be mischievous and maybe even get a little crazy in her past roles, but if the exclusive MTV Sneak Peek clip of her upcoming film The Bling Ring is any indication, our dear Ms. Watson is about to get a lot badder. If her now infamous in-the-club-body-roll (which we now know is Beyonce-inspired) from the first trailer didn't tip you off, pole dancing in Paris Hilton's "club room" (LOL) definitely should have—our 2013 MTV Movie Awards Trailblazer Award winner is going all out in her new role. And that doesn't just mean in the dance moves department. In her interview with MTV After Hours host Josh Horowitz, Watson revealed that she had to take some sartorial risks for her Bling Ring part as well. "I can't wear this because you can see the bra straps," Emma recalled saying in the dressing room one day, as she looked at the costumes for her character, Nicki. What was her director Sofia Coppola's response? "You really need to reverse your whole world," is what Emma recalls her saying. From then on, the star, who is no slouch in the fashion department, we have to say—she wears some of our favorite looks on the red carpet, bar none—embraced all of the things that her character Nicki loves. From Uggs to neon, to everything in between.

• Beliebers across the world had a collective freakout when photos of Justin Bieber's Dortmund, Germany photo call appeared on the internet. Why, you ask? Well, because of his hair, OBVIOUSLY. The singer brought back the side swept bangs that were his signature way back when. MAJOR.
• We've had Demi Lovato's "Heart Attack" in serious, play-button-breaking rotation since it came out, so when the video was released this week, we just HAD to break down every outfit. And those diva hands? Perfect.
• What does one wear to Pharrell's birthday party? Well, if you're Miley Cyrus, leather basketball shorts.
• Twinsies! Rihanna and Kanye West have both worn the Kokon to Zai metalhead sweatpants, but the real question is: who wore it better?
• Want to smell like a doughnut made of rainbows but not sure what scent will get you there? Look no further than Mariah Carey's twelfth fragrance (uh huh), Dreams.

Romance, you guys. Prom is a great many things—a chance to have one more night with all your friends before high school ends and the big, bad future swallows you up, a chance to look AMAZING in a fancy dress, you know—but it's also a big deal in terms of puppy love. Relationships and crushes alike feel SO MAJOR in high school that one slow dance can feel like you've died and gone to swoonsville and being asked to prom is a very exciting prospect. When I was in high school, I went with my best dude friend Dave, and I can't even remember how he asked me, I think we were walking through the halls after choir and he was just like, "Hey, wanna go to prom with me?" and so we did. This was before YouTube, OK? Stakes are way higher for today's prom Don Juans, though, with flash mobs, viral everything, and the internet getting all up in everyone's business. Which brings us to the topic at hand: THE PROMPOSAL. You kids these days, you're CA-UTE. Just a quick spin through the #promposal hashtag on Twitter is enough to melt the stoniest of bitter hearts—from the expected roses all over cars and hallway banners to the, well, downright weird, people are getting CREATIVE. We found a few promposals that we thought really captured the spirit of the trend, and the girls who received them were kind enough to share their photos with us!
After doing some research on both Allison Murphy and her boyfriend Luke's twitter accounts, we have learned that they REALLY dig cereal. In particular, they're really into Barbara's Bakery Puffins. We assume that this means the two of them, you know, hang out after school and snack on cereal, so wasn't Luke being sneaky when he altered a box of their fave treat to ask his lady to be his prom date? Cute, cute, cute. Love a man who can get crafty. Also, he wore a tie (we're hoping he did it for the occasion and not as part of a school uniform) when he did it, which is so on point. Gentlemen, take note: when asking a lady to prom, make sure you look right. You hear us?

Selenators, rejoice! In mere days, your queen Selena Gomez will be taking to the 2013 MTV Movie Awards stage to perform her new single, "Come & Get It." The "earthy" performance promises to be one of the night's highlights, and for you, dear Sel stans, we think it's fair to guess that it will be your favorite moment. While you've probably already started planning your viewing party (and if you haven't, chop chop!), we scoured the internet for some Selena-inspired stuff to really take it to the next level. While we suggest creating your own DIY "S-E-L-E-N-A" banner to welcome your guests, there are even more killer ways to show your love for the Spring Breakers star.
