If you're anything like us, you love some good behind-the-scenes 411. Like, when I'm looking at Selena Gomez's hair at Oscar parties, I want to know how long that sleek 'do took. Three days or three hours? You could tell me either, and I wouldn't be surprised. Luckily for us, Katie Stevens, the star of MTV's new show Faking It (premiering April 22!) snapped some pictures of her process as she got ready for one such party. We are so in the know now. Join us as we cherish this inside info below!

Katie had the help of hair stylist Jesse Montana to get her 'do ready for the partay. Katie obviously knew selfies were going to be, like, the biggest meme of the night even before the show began. She got a head start on Ellen, Jennifer, Bradley, Jared, Lupita's brother, and everyone else in that photo.

You know how when you hang out with someone a lot, you pick up their mannerisms and sayings? It happens to celebrities too! It looks like all the shopping trips/fun girl hang time between Taylor Swift and Lorde have resulted in the exchange of style secrets. Last night, Taylor attended the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in a Julien Macdonald long-sleeved, sequined gown that was reminiscent of the Tom Ford gown her new BFF Lorde wore to perform at the Brits a few weeks ago. While Lorde went for a "red carpet goth" look, Taylor and her new bob went for vampy old Hollywood glamour.
If pictures just aren't cutting your desire to relive the 2014 Academy Awards red carpet, maybe GIFs will do the trick. Watch celebs do things on repeat, for the rest of time. You can pick up their mannerisms and, like, IDK impersonate them at parties (for fun or money). Peep Emma Watson, Jennifer Lawrence, Jared Leto doing their thangs, below!
Yeah, I'd take a lot of selfies if I had ombre as flawless as Jared Leto's.

When it was announced earlier today that Lady Gaga would be making an appearance on the Oscars red carpet, we were like, "OMG, YAAS GAGA YAAAS." Then, we waited patiently (and eagerly) for Gaga to roll up. Finally, it happened. And, we must say, it was worth the wait: Gaga went glam. Big time.
Sticking with her preferred lilac and Versace palette, Mother Monster opted for a strapless gown, complete with mirrored embellishments. Note to all the Oscars attendees who are reading this post: if you forgot your mirror, cozy up to Gaga and admire your reflection. It's the perfect lipstick check opportunity, AND you get to talk to Lady Gaga. Win-win, TBH.

Grab a comfortable seat, maybe a few crudités, and a drink, because the 86th Annual Academy Awards are underway. The red carpet has been rolled out, people are stepping on it, it's all goin' down. It's Hollywood's biggest night—time to pull out all the stops. Throughout the past week we've asked a few questions: What hat will Pharrell choose? Will Jennifer Lawrence totally nail it in Dior yet again? What color will Lupita Nyong'o wear? And now, in mere minutes, all our questions will be answered. We are readaaay.
Transformation timeline from Echelon to Rayon

Jared Leto is a man of many talents. In addition to fronting Thirty Seconds to Mars and having some seriously enviable ombre hair to ever grace this Earth, he beautifully portrayed a transsexual AIDS patient named Rayon in Dallas Buyers Club. Jared went through a major physical change in a short amount of time for the role, so we figured, in honor of Jared's nomination for Best Supporting Actor, we would take a look back (mostly via Leto's own Instagram) at his transformation. Let's get this started.

Before undertaking the role of Rayon, Jared had a full beard and impersonated Abe Lincoln for fun. He wore his hair in a man bun.
If you haven't paid much attention to the fierce competition raging in the Oscar race for "Highest Pants," don't worry—we're here to break down the contenders for you. The creased slacks designed by Casey Storm in Her were given a lot of attention because of their extra-long zippers and hidden buttons, but they were not, in fact, the only high-waisted pants on screens this Oscar year. Below you'll find the four films vying for the coveted trophy, in the order that we think is least to most likely to win (this completely trivial category that we made up). Cast your vote in the comments at the bottom of the post. Best of luck to all.
DALLAS BUYERS CLUB
Matthew McConaughey lost over 40 pounds to play the role of Ron Woodroff in Dallas Buyers Club. His character continues to lose weight throughout the film due to his battle with AIDS, so a belt was necessary to hold up the jeans on his wiry frame. From the front, the pants don't look all that high, but from the back, you can see how they're cinched, sitting at the top of his waist. On the waistline spectrum (your grandfather to Britney Spears in the "I'm A Slave 4 U" video), they could sit higher, but they could also definitely be lower.
Angelina Jolie, Michelle Williams, Halle Berry, Bjork, and Anne Hathaway wore memorable Oscars dresses.

You guys, the 86th Annual Academy Awards are this Sunday. Like, in three days. Do you have your viewing gowns picked out? Have you picked up cheeses for your appetizer spread? Phew. Us, too. In order to mentally prepare ourselves for all the red carpet looks we'll be treated to on Sunday (also, #tbt), we're taking a look at past Oscars' looks—from Angelina Jolie's right leg-baring Versace Atelier gown to Anne Hathaway's nipple-parody-inducing Prada dress, and everything that came before them.
