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.
One Direction thinking about That Moment.

Directioners, y'all better start bathing in Our Moment, because One Direction already has a new perfume on the way. In a video just released by the band, Harry reveals that a new edition of Our Moment, not-very-creatively named That Moment, will be released soon. Before we get to this new perfume, can we talk about the video? Is this 30-second clip the reason Harry was MIA when the band won its first award at the 2014 Brit Awards? He's in the same outfit and a dimly lit room—who knows how long he was hanging out in there. Is it called That Moment because of that moment when Harry was nowhere to be found? Some questions have no answers.
The new fragrance, Harry tell us, will take some of the old notes like "pink grapefruit and jasmine" and mix them with "green apple and violet." The best part, though (LBR, we're not buying it because of how it smells), is that it'll come in a "swanky new bottle." YAAAS. Swanky bottles are the best kind of bottles!! Let's check this bad-boy bottle out!
Kanye West on 'Late Night With Seth Meyers.'

Last night, Kanye West was a guest on the second episode of Late Night With Seth Meyers, and, as usual, he talked about fashion. What was unusual, at least according to the internet, was the tone with which he spoke. It was soft, and his notoriously unwieldy comparisons were (mostly) in check, seeming to better illustrate his point. The thing is, though, that what he said last night is, bare bones, the same stuff he's been saying for months. All he did was lower his voice.
