MTV's new series Faking It debuted last night and—guess what?—it's really good! A new show means new characters to meet and, more important, more wardrobes to discuss. As with many MTV shows (see: Teen Wolf), the fashion choices seem totally appropriate for high schoolers, and we are very excited to see what Karma, Amy, Shane, and Liam wear in the rest of the episodes.
I'm getting ahead of myself, though—let's talk about the pilot's most fashionable moments.
Amy and Karma on 'Faking It.'
We knew we'd like this show when it opened with a shot from within a closet. Hi, we like closets and the things that go in them. Karma (Katie Stevens), one of the two lead characters, then asks her best friend/fake girlfriend, Amy (Rita Volk), how blind people get dressed, which is never really resolved.
One Direction shoes because why not.

Have your feet been feeling decidedly un-British recently? Do you long to have signatures on your
sneakers (sorry) trainers? Are you very, VERY much into One Direction? Well, then, you're in luck—One Direction finally have shoes that fit all of your needs and desires. This morning on Twitter, the One Direction account announced that for the next five weeks they'd be sending a pair to five people who subscribe to their newsletter. Um, do you get to choose whose signature you get? Some people might only be interested in one specific pair, so, like, how do you guarantee you win the blue ones? Asking for a friend. Also, if this is a surprise, how do they obtain your shipping information and shoe size? While I wouldn't throw away a pair of Niall kicks that showed up on my doorstep (size 8.5 U.S. women's, please), I'd be weirded out that the people who run 1D's Twitter somehow found my address.
Over the past week we've brought you a bunch of different prom dresses for every price point. Whether you're in the market for something under $150, over $350, or anywhere in between, we've got ya covered. Today, though, we're switching focus to something a bit more exotic, as far as prom wear goes—we're talking jumpsuits and rompers. Since the all-in-one pieces are having ~such a moment~ right now, there are a ton out there. We scoured a few of our fave sites and narrowed down the options into pieces you may actually want to wear in lieu of a dress. Peep them in all their glory below!

If you decide to wear a jumpsuit to prom, chances are you're pretty sartorially courageous. These full-length and solid-color jumpsuits combine the length and elegance of a traditional prom dress, but let you crawl into the back of a limo, no problem. The first option gives you a sparkly top and basic bottom—it looks more like a tucked-in shirt and pants than a one-piece ($103). The second option is black and features flared legs, which gives it a skirt effect ($79). In case you're worried you'll feel all buttoned-up next to your dress-wearing counterparts, fear not—the back on this bad boy is totally open. The third option is strapless and taupe ($122). You'll be able to accessorize with anything because it's so simple. The final option has a full front and back, but it's completely sheer thanks to its lace inserts ($122).
In the teaser for Katy Perry's "Birthday" video, the singer transforms into five different birthday party entertainers. Oh, one caveat—they're the world's worst party people. Katy is so transformed by her makeup and (surprisingly?) good at accents that when the video began I didn't ~get~ that it was Katy in disguise. In retrospect, I'm embarrassed. At the time, though, I was embarrassed for the aging showgirl.

The dancer's name, of course, is Goldie. This isn't your run-of-the-mill slap on a wig, and glasses transformation (we're looking at you, Drake)—Katy has on elaborate makeup and prostheses to make not only her face, but neck look wrinkly. She's got some bright blue eye shadow, a bold red lip, and it looks like a brush hasn't touched her hair in years. It's quite a different look from the wistful old lady she played in "The One That Got Away" (more on that later).

Then there's Yosef Shulem, an MC, who is willing to tell jokes at funerals. For Yosef, Katy has on layers of makeup to make her neck and chin look chunkier, a curly wig and matching strong brows, and, my personal favorite, chest and finger hair. No detail was skipped, you guys!
Rihanna for 'Vogue Brazil.'

The last time we saw shirtless Rihanna, she used her hair to cover essential parts. In a new photo from her Vogue Brazil spread, though, Rihanna has no hair to spare. She's sporting her short 'do from this winter and what she lacks in shirts, she makes up for in gold. Most people don't stoop over an outdoor sink wearing wrists full of gold bangles and a gold choker, but Rihanna isn't most people, obviously.
With prom season in full swing, we've been keeping our eyes peeled for the best dresses out there on the interwebz. Last week we brought you dresses under $150 and between $150 and $350, but today we're breaking out the big guys. We looked around for the 10 dresses we think are worth the splurge. We're talking big bucks here—$350 and up—so we only included ones we are 100% in love with. Check 'em out below!
SOLID AND STRUCTURED
If you're in the market for a dress that is, as far as prom dresses go, simple and something you may wear again, these three dresses are what you're looking for. The first option, a peachy color, is structured at the top, but flares into a full skirt at the bottom ($348). The second, besides being a gorgeous royal blue, is structured in an unusual way—you're guaranteed to have one of the most unique skirts at prom ($398). The final option is a simple, strapless red dress that you can definitely wear after prom, if you so choose ($425). It might be a little formal, but if I owned that dress I'd wear it to, like, brunch. I'd want everyone to see it constantly.
While many people put on their Sunday best to celebrate Easter, a number of celebrities got into the holiday spirit in a more playful way: with bunny ears! Beyonce, Mariah Carey, and Rita Ora all accessorized with ears, while Rihanna celebrated in a different way.

• All of our faves came out for the MTV Movie Awards, including Nicki Minaj who was very atypically understated in a black Alexander McQueen gown.
• After surprising us with orange hair last week, Kristen Stewart has already changed her hair color, this time to bright red. Seriously, everyone is changing their hair.
• Rihanna wore a straight-up robe to the Movie Awards, which further cements her status as a hero in our books. For her performance she changed into a bomber jacket, and matched with Eminem. Fashion twinsies.
• Adam Lambert debuted a green 'do, which led us to wonder whether he or Katy Perry pulled green off better. Will blonde hair be a distant memory soon?
• Ellie Goulding maintained goddess status from the Movie Awards red carpet to her performance, wearing two white gowns and, as always, perfectly mussed hair.
