Gossip Girl may have skipped a week last Tuesday, but we pick back up right where we left off, and the short break may have been wise because this episode was a DOOZY. Dan (Penn Badgley) is pumped up about the whirlwind success of Inside from secret publication to anonymous author reveal, script optioning, and NOW he's a top 10 bestseller. Serena (Blake Lively) and her boss Jane (Michael Michele) bring Dan in to discuss the paper-to-film transition, but the meeting turns sour as Jane tries to Glee it up and basically turn the story into Newsies. Blair (Leighton Meester), with her wedding day fast approaching, takes to the scheme board "one last time" for an elaborate bridesmaids gauntlet among select minions throughout the years and the tournament's dark horse, Charlie (aka Ivy) (Kaylee DeFer). Chuck (Ed Westwick) is seeing a therapist who has been paid off by Prince Louis (Hugo Becker) to "light his fuse" in hopes that Blair will be reminded of Chuck's monstrous side and never go back to him *cough*goodluckdude*cough*. Nate (Chace Crawford) gets huffy about his boss Diana (Elizabeth Hurley) and her unwillingness to come forward with Nate as a couple, and it aaaaall comes to a head at...you guessed it! A PARTY! It's a big episode for longtime fans, so in case you haven't caught up yet, we won't spoil the rest, but check back here weekly for our fashion recap!

Selena Gomez gets a retro makeover for "Wizards of Waverly Place."
Photo: Disney Channel

It may not be Halloween anymore, but that's not stopping Selena Gomez from costuming up. For this week's episode of Wizards of Waverly Place, Selena gets retro-tastic '50s AND '70s makeovers. For the nifty fifties look, rather than a simple poodle-skirted Sandra Dee à la Grease, the Wizards makeup and wardrobing departments went all out for the time-travelling ep, which airs this Friday. Selena wears a canary yellow all-over floral printed dress with a FULL A-line skirt sitting below the knee and a natural waistline. The frock's short-sleeve bateau neck bodice would be unforgiving on most, but as we've come to know, Selena is blossoming into quite the fashion plate goddess, with an uncanny ability (some might say a gift) to rock just about anything. Sel is accessorized with a classy string of pearls plus a bracelet, single post earrings, and tiny yellow bows placed throughout her bouffant ponytail 'do.

We are totally ENGROSSED in this season of Gossip Girl and feel as though things are about to KICK OFF uptown. Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley) has become an overnight literary sensation as a result of his book, Inside, which is "loosely based" on all of his friends and family who, incidentally, refuse to talk to him anymore, giving literal meaning to the nickname Lonely Boy. Serena Van Der Woodsen (Blake Lively) tries to secure the film rights to the book but does so at Dan's expense even though he was, supposedly, "the love of [her] life." Preggo Blair Waldorf's (Leighton Meester) who-is-the-father royal (pain) predicament, has her soon-to-be sister in law, Beatrice Grimaldi (Roxanne Mesquida) stirring up all kinds of trouble during Yom Kippur. For instance, she and her mother, Princess Sophie Grimaldi (Joanne Whalley) of Monaco, try to get Blair to sign an agreement that will, basically, give them total control over Blair's life and that of her unborn child. Who helped dream up this dastardly scheme? Oh, just "journalist" (i.e. total gossip monger and cougar extraordinaire), Diana Payne (Elizabeth Hurley), who seems to be spreading her vicious Upper East Side takedown agenda like nobody's biz. She gets Ivy, aka "Charlie Rhodes" (Kaylee DeFer), to break into the sacred Van Der Woodsen safe, which she does with the help of (GASP!) Nate (Chace Crawford). Oh, and Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick)? He meets a pretty psychologist who cracks the code to his troubled brain. In case you haven't caught up yet, we won't spoil the rest, but check back here weekly for our fashion recap!

Hi there, folks, it's Gossip Girl time here, your one and only source into the fashionable TV lives of Manhattan aesthetes. We left off last week in a frenzy of new plotlines and character developments. Lonely Boy Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley) wrote an anonymous book that's no longer anonymous; in fact, it has his name on it and he's set to make his literary debut! Problem is, he must tell his friends and family they were the subjects of his tell-all memoir (we mean novel). Even though everyone's worried what his former flame, the "leggy blonde Sabrina"—er‚ Serena Van Der Woodsen (Blake Lively) is going to think, it's actually his longtime arch nemesis and sometime kissing buddy Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) he's more worried about. Blair, who is still preggers but mumsies about who the real father is, even though she insists it's her straight-laced fiancé, Prince Louis, has a run-in with Chuck (Ed Westwick) that causes his dog to tangle her up in an embrace just in time for somebody to shoot a camera phone pic. Meanwhile, in Cougarville, Nate (Chace Crawford) is still making his boss, Diana Payne (Elizabeth Hurley), purr for gossip while Diana figures out the identity of Ivy, aka "Charlie" (Kaylee DeFer) and starts to blackmail her. As predicted, Lonely Boy's book makes everyone really mad, and he is left alone at his own party. In case you haven't caught up yet, we won't spoil the rest, but check back here weekly for our fashion recap!

Emma Watson and Logan Lerman on "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" set.

Miss Emma Watson is starring in the upcoming film The Perks of Being a Wallflower, based on the beloved emo-tortured teen novel, and the first official photos have arrived! Co-starring super cute Logan Lerman and Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev, the film centers around an awkward teen in Pittsburgh in the early 1990s. Emma plays the love interest (obvs, duh, she's a Midnight Rose isn't she?), and judging by the on-set photos, her wardrobe is anything but wallflower-y. In fact, it's very '90s high school in the coolest way.

Just when we think we know which direction Gossip Girl is heading, that idling Upper East Side limo makes a U-turn. There are so many soul-punching shenanigans going on in the latest episode that we barely know where to begin. As you know from last week, Mr. Chuck (Ed Westwick) can't seem to feel any emotion anymore, so Lonely Boy Dan (Penn Badgley) gets all Humphrey on his cashmere adorned assets and surprises him with an impossibly cute pet dog. Dan has become Blair Waldorf's (Leighton Meester) pet dog, and even though he keeps trying to get her to open an envelope that reveals the father of her baby, she refuses but only for awhile. (GASP! Relax, no spoiler alert here.) Nate (Chace Crawford) starts his new internship with his cougar boss Diana Payne (Elizabeth Hurley), and she begins to reveal her true purpose regarding Manhattan's elite. Oh, and where's Serena (Blake Lively), you ask? Miss Van Der Woodsen is all about making her "cousin" Charlie (Kaylee DeFer) feel right at home, and lucky for her, "Charlie" (aka Ivy) has no intention of going anywhere. But if social-climbing Ivy isn't careful, we have a feeling she'll be skating on thin ice all winter. In case you haven't caught up yet, we won't spoil the rest, but check back here weekly for our fashion recap!

Selena Gomez Wizards of Waverly Place

We don't know about you guys, but we've always kind of had a love/hate relationship with loungewear. It's weird to think that's there's a SPECIFIC collection of clothes made just to lay around in. Are comfy cotton daytime dresses just not enough? Apparently not, which is why sweatpants (oddly enough made for sweating in) were born. And you know what? Aside from the possible butt branding (you know, that text scrawled across the behind), sweatpants are hard to jazz up. Well friends, thanks to genius/musician/actress/style guru Selena Gomez, we now have a way to spice up sweats—layer them with patterned shorts!

This fifth season of Gossip Girl is still slowly rolling out, establishing relationship changes, tying up loose ends left untended over the summer break. Serena (Blake Lively) runs into her "cousin" Charlie (Kaylee DeFer) (quotation marks because as you'll remember from Season 4, Charlie is actually an actress named Ivy hired by Serena's aunt to protect her real daughter from the CRAY-ZEE world of the über-privileged Upper East Side elite) and convinces her to go apartment shopping. Nate (Chace Crawford) finally tracks down Diana Payne (Elizabeth Hurley) who he had been infatuated with since mistakenly giving her a tour of her own L.A. pad. but there's something shady about Miss Payne and poor lovestruck Nate may just be a pawn in her master plan. Lonely Boy Dan (Penn Badgley) is proving unsuccessful on his hunt for his leaked secret manuscript and enlists the aid of Chuck (Ed Westwick), though it's not as if Bass doesn't have problems of his own. Longtime Bass on-again-off-again flame Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) meets her soon-to-be sister-in-law and reveals yet another stressor in her wedding plans. In case you haven't caught up yet, we won't spoil the rest, but check back here weekly for our fashion recap!

Last night's season premiere of Gossip Girl was nothing short of thirst-quenching. After a summerlong hiatus, the small screen reunion of our favorite Upper East Side youths did not disappoint—both in twisty turning plotlines and a drool-worthy wardrobe. This episode caught us up with Serena Van Der Woodsen's (Blake Lively) L.A. film apprenticeship. She was visited by the globe-trotting Chuck (Ed Westwick) and Nate (Chace Crawford), which led to the introduction of much-anticipated cast addition Diana Payne (Elizabeth Hurley). Back on the East Coast, Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) was busy planning for her impending wedding to Prince Louis Grimaldi, and Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley) was just beginning to discover what exactly Vanessa (Jessica Szohr) had done with his secret manuscript. In case you haven't caught up yet, we won't spoil the rest, but check back here weekly for our fashion recap!

Ryan Gosling and the "Drive" bomber jacket.

When you watch a movie like Drive, it's easy to admire director Nicolas Winding Refn's polished artistic vision or the fine acting (and the fiiiiiiine face/bod/everything) of Ryan Gosling. But we'd like to call your attention to the work of costume designer Erin Benach, particularly the iconic white satin jacket which Ryan's character, Driver, wears throughout the film. A recent interview with Benach revealed the gargantuan efforts behind its creation (clearly, you do not just buy a jacket like that off the rack). And whaddaya know, "special and awesome and unique" Ryan (Benach's words, though we certainly agree) was totally involved in the process. "We discuss everything beforehand," Benach, who has worked with Ryan before on Blue Valentine and Half Nelson, coos. Hmph.
