You know how when you think of GOING TO PARIS you picture yourself against the most glorious backdrops wearing the most effortlessly chic garb? A chapeau maybe. Or a bateau-neck striped St. James three-quarter-sleeve thing with an insanely tied scarf in a knot that is basically the secret handshake to Parisian lady-onlookers so they can know INSTANTLY that you, too, are awesome? Storybook vistas of sunny, cobblestone sidewalks and romantic cafés (with the best light) where you sit outside so all of the arrondissements and stuff can take note of your mind-blowingly perfect ensembles (obvi). I don't know about you, but Beyoncé just put all of my fantasies to shame with her outfits THIS WEEKEND ALONE. But then, why am I surprised? SHE'S BEYONCÉ.

Who else but B can move so effortlessly between looking polished and edgy? One day, she'll rock a black Roland Mouret jumpsuit with round-frame sunglasses and an expertly disheveled bedhead look. The next, she's en route to an Easter brunch at Fouquets, perfectly primped in a two-toned Marc Jacobs polka-dot frock, Christian Louboutin peep toes, and Balmain satchel. And don't even get me started on this petaled/sheer Gucci dress/masterpiece she wore for a photoshoot with Harper's Bazaar. DEEEEAAAAAADEDEDED and then revived ONLY TO DIE AGAIN.

Balmain, it seems, was a kind of theme for the weekend, as we see her pictured carrying the ubiquitous satchel — this time paired with a black-and-gold asymmetrical dress by Isabel Marant and T-strap heels by Alexander McQueen — and again at Paris Disney in head-to-toe Balmain (minus the Goofy hat). P.S. Who but Beyoncé can still look STONE COLD GORGE in a GOOFY HAT?? Like, it's not in my Paris fantasies but maybe it should be?!? Alls we're saying is, thank you. Thank you for taking our very reveries and making them regular. Middling at best. But with an approachable smile and total, 100 percent aplomb. Fin.

Whoa. So much actually going on in this photo. First we were all, Yeah, AshTiz looks great. Oh, she appears to be in front of a shelf in a bookstore, and we love bookstores and the way they mostly have agreeable lighting. Some of them even have a Starbucks where we can caffeinate our faces off and ooooh what do we have here? A supercute cinched-waist dress with kicky little gathers and... WAIT, OH SNAP. This "sweet" dress is actually stealth sexy: On a cursory glance it looks demure and angelic with its modest neckline and short but not too-short hem.

Check it out—not only does the gauzy cutout plunge down to the waist, but it's actually similarly sheer in the back as well, save a thick band of opaque fabric where the zipper is (it's stylized so it's way cute and not obtrusive). And at no point does anything devolve into unsavory territory because the creamy color keeps everything above board and wholesome for a daytime or well-lit indoor event. The dress does come in black too, which is fascinating because it's not that the color switch renders it skanky or anything (NOT AT ALL) but it looks like a totally different dress and would look stellar out on the town. In fact, when you look at both, there's something distinctly ballet-ish about the delivery, which always tends to be elegant (when they're not hallucinating and stabbing evil doppelgängers with shards of glass to stake their claim as PRIMA BALLERINAAAAAAA [because they are soooo hungry and tired]). Plus, our favorite part? Is that the dress, called the "Lulu" from Love & Lemons is only $88 clams! Righteous. Check out all the views and linkage here.

ZOMG you guys, it's prom season and while MTV Style's coverage will be going FULL TILT starting May 2 (mark your calendars), last night marked the world premiere of Disney's prom movie entitled, Prom (well, right), which will see nationwide release next weekend (May 29, to be exact). Squeeeeeee. And while there's a lot to be gleaned from the trailer which you can see here, the basic premise is that Aimee Teegarden's character, Nova Prescott (good bougie name!), wants to have The Perfect Prom (*lightning crash*) along with a buncha other couples who also want everything to be "just right." And then there's this "bad" boy, Thomas McDonell, who looks like if Keanu Reeve's genes and Johnny Depp's genes made a beautiful baby son (read: RIDIC HOT) whose "punishment" is that he not only HAS TO go to prom but he has to work on the prom committee with the gorgeous Ms. Teegarden who is seriously as cute as a button. Like, maybe even a little bit cuter than when she's on the greatest television show about sports and the only one I've successfully ever watched about football—Friday Night Lights. But prom is all about DRESSES so let's pluck some ideas out from the red carpet style of Debby Ryan, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Aimee, Tara Lipinski (random!), Amber Lancaster and Rebecca Black.

Disney's Debby Ryan wears a floral printed, light pink, lavender, and gray column dress with a splendidly fitted bodice and tight horizontal gathers aplenty. In our extensive prom research (aka diligent rifling through of magazines), we discovered that tons of fash-obsessed teens are interpreting current spring/summer 2011 fashion trends into their dresses and this floral, no-SOOOOO-evening-wear-ish maxi option is an awesome one.

Kendall and Kylie Jenner went for twinsies appeal in matching royal blue dresses of exactly the same length, and while it may look a little spooky, the color itself is a definite win. Look it, if you and your hard-core bestie are DROP-DEAD SURE you want to wear the same color, just do it. We'd suggest a little more variation in the silhouette and differing hair/makeup/accessories (these ladies' shoes are deliriously cute) but otherwise, pshaaaaw, it's prom, do what you want.

Our star, Aimee, went for classic glam but did it in a totally age-appropriate way and rocked a stunning slight-sweetheart beaded dress in an elegant silver and clutch. The somewhat muted sheen makes the look totally modern and refined while the loose hair keeps the aesthetic young and carefree.

Cocktail lengths were big last night, and Olympic figure skater Tara Lipinski wore a white and black dress with a white overlay. The bold, contouring stripes not only flaunt her already small waist but also accentuate her curves, which is critical for those petite gals among us. Plus, it gives the dress a harder edge, which with all that white and mesh could've skewed too girly.

Amber Lancaster from The Hard Times of R.J. Berger, rocks a gathered turquoise, coral, brown and yellow number that's asymmetrical AND tie-dyed, two hot trends for the season. We love that she opted to go stark white with the shoe so as not to compete with the palette of the dress.

Rebecca Black from the internet and morning shows and recipient of a ton of unwarranted hateration chose to go all-white with a fitted bodice and balloon skirt. A breezy version of something that could've turned into a wedding gown nightmare were it too voluminous. The way she has it here is just right. White, whoda thunk it for a prom theme? But it works.

Oh snaps! Flame-tressed goodness in threesies! Maybe it's the promise of summer and that gloriously floral springtime scent in the air, but it's definitely a season for change. And by change we mean temporarily experimenting with the color of the fibrous structural proteins that make up your HAIR! The first case of going rouge was spotted on our dear trendsetting Whitney Port earlier this month, with her typically blonde strands going strawberry and then BAMBAMBAM, we've got Drew Barrymore, Rumer Willis and Mandy Moore looking perfect for spring and debuting gorgeous red heads. It's amazing what a difference it makes. I mean, not cuhrazy to where they look that different. They were freakishly attractive ladies to begin with.

Drew opted for coppery layers that still beautifully complements her boho-chic ensemble choices and makes her skin look bright and amazing. Serious peaches-n-cream going on here. Given that this long 'do is one that she's sported for several years, it's kinda incredible that the influx of color alters everything subtly like, look at the green flecks that comprise the hazel of her eyes. Plus, it warms up all that lovely gold jewelry.

Rumer's quintessentially Rumer-ish modified pixie/bob goes for a more maroonish red, which gives a great deal of depth to her wavy tousled, asymmetrical strands. It's like the rug in The Dude's house; it really ties the room together etc etc.

Mandy's hair is GLORIOUS and always looks rich and perfect and healthy and shiny, and like it smells like either almonds or outside or field (but not if there's like animals or anything. This is not where this is going). The awesome thing about Mandy's hair is that the auburn and rusty red highlights make all types of springtime colors and floral looks feminine and beautiful. Like a girl you want to marry immediately and make her learn acoustic guitar or put on an old-school bicycle with a basket or something. Plus, she loves cats. Winner.

Olivia Palermo in Limelight for StyleCaster.

Oh man, it really is incredible how consistently awesome Olivia Palermo looks (remember how well turned out she was in this shopping vid?). Check out this exclusive Stylecaster editorial entitled, "Limelight," with the former star of The City 'cause it showcases an aspect of her aesthetic that we absolutely adore--the fact that she looks so much like a 1970s starlet. Add to that a pensive, folksy, fashion element, a devastatingly beautiful acoustic guitar, textured neutrals, and BANGS and we're beyond sold. But, whaaaa there's an interview by some lovely person by the name of Kerry Pieri, you say? Awesome. We've snippeted them for you.

On her personal style:
My taste has evolved over the years, but I have always stayed true to timeless classic with a modern edge. And, of course for me it’s all about accessorizing!

Where she likes to go on holiday:
I love to travel and open my eyes to all the different forms of beauty in the world. I don’t fancy staying in the same place for very long. A few of my favorite destinations are the Maldives, St Barth's, and anywhere with a significant amount of snow to go skiing.

Favorite designers:
DVF, Giambattista Valli, Marchesa.

Fashion icons:
I’m obsessed with Old Hollywood glamour. Most of my fashion icons are from that time period: Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Carey Grant, Humphrey Bogart.

Boyfriend and dog's name (respectively):
Johannes and Mr. Butler.

Maaaaaaaaaaaargeeeeeeeene! Man, we've been in BIG LOVE (massive, really) with actress Ginnifer Goodwin's dizzying hairvolution since she first boldly chopped her wavy, shoulder-length layered locks into a side-parted long, straight bob to an ear-length bob and then finally to a full-on pixie with some variations being the side-swept pixie (instructions on this look can be found here [Thanks InStyle, no wonder y'all have an entire hair mag].). Her stylist, Anh Co Tran, (who has a super-cute Tumblr chock full of photos of his clients with a ton of his fashion editorial as well) is no stranger to experimentation and since he's an LA/NY-based hair magician to the stars, copping a ballsy 'do is about being in the right hands. That and enough gumption in your soul and hard to recognize that hair grows back and that despite how "craptastic" your bangs look today that everyone will cope and fewer boys than you could ever imagine would even notice. The thing we can't get over is that the fashion bowl cut mimics one of our FAVORITE Swedes in the whole wide universe--none other than the spandex cat-suit wearing, Jeremy Scott-loving, dancing-on-my-own, haaaaaaaaaang with me (forever)--Robyn. Now if they'll only answer my prayers and deign to spend time with each other on Sunday to go antiquing, then brunch, then (why not) ANOTHER round of Bloody Marys, then taking matchy poo texturing spray from their handbags to expertly groom each other's bangs like beautiful, beautiful Siamese cats to look just perfect. That would rule.

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