The official release date for Spring Breakers (STILL) hasn't been set yet, but the film's grand premiere at the 2012 Venice Film Festival can only indicate it can't be that far off. Granted, we'll probably be waiting well into the new year, but seeing Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine lope down the red carpet in the anticipated flick's name (oh yea, James Franco and director Harmony Korine were there, too) has us writhing in our desk chairs with all sorts of stomach butterflies for the impending theater debut. The PYTs looked RAVISHING, as expected, and though we may be twiddling our thumbs until we finally get a taste of the movie itself, we're more than content with the four-part fashion parade that's surely right around the corner with the film's international promo tour. Let's take a closer look at the Venice kick-off and these leading ladies' first set of red carpet premiere outfits!

If you've ever been dying to raid the wardrobe of your favorite model, musician or DJ, then get excited--we've just found your chance. A new website called MaterialWrld aims to take the goods off these style setters' hands...and put them into yours. Launching today, this online shopping hub is stocked with clothing, shoes, and accessories from a curated community of "It" girls, all of whom want to clean out their closets. Sound too good to be true? Believe it or not, it totally isn't! Here's how it works: everyone from Mia Moretti to Cory Kennedy to the Dannijo sisters share photos of items they want to get rid of and post them online with the selling price. Categorized by "closet" (who's selling the pieces), size, or style, you can buy the item just as you'd normally shop online. But then again, this ISN'T your average e-commerce-- MaterialWrld has a unique social media twist, which is exactly what makes it so awesome.

Miley Cyrus may have been channeling her inner '90s grunge girl recently with a Doc Martens obsession, Robyn-esque outfits and punky new haircut, but the pop star went fancy last night for a DIY photoshoot with her mom. We've loving how cute she looks with her bleach-blonde hair slicked up- it's spunky, glam, and rocker all at the same time. Her statement 'do looks especially awesome, we might add, paired with her chic ladylike ensemble. The black bralette and graphic pencil skirt combo is a definite fashion departure from the tough-chick looks she's been sportling as of late, but still with PLENTY of attitude (obviously).
Leandra Medine is repelling in fall plaids for Uniqlo.
If anyone has figured out how to have it all, it's Leandra Medine. The 24 year old blogger behind The Man Repeller has a successful online brand, partnerships galore, AND she just tied the knot (in an incredible dress, we might add). When we heard that Leandra was going to be joining Tavi Gevinson and Cyndi Lauper as a model for Uniqlo, we were beyond excited--the Japanese basics retailer is definitely not what we think of when we think Medine, as her style everything besides basic, but then we remembered that everyone has to wear jeans, right? When Fashionista interviewed Medine about the campaign, she revealed a collaboration vetting strategy that we can totally get behind: "I always and only ever do collaborations with brands that I would work with even if there was no compensation involved," Medine said, adding, "and Uniqlo is one of my favorite, favorite brands." Super cool in style AND in ethics

When- not if, when- Marina Diamandis enters your life, you'd better make room in your closet AND your iTunes library. The Welsh singer burst upon the music scene a few years ago as Marina & the Diamonds and has stayed busy since, thanks to DIY pop singles like "Obsessions" and "Mowgli's Road." Now with two full-length albums to her name and a headlining tour underway, the 27-year-old songbird has earned a cult following for her music AND her entirely original style. She sports onstage staples like old-school cheerleading jackets, metallic minidresses, and flouncy skirts, conjuring up images of a fashion love child between Gwen Stefani and Katy Perry...if they decided to move to Pleasantville, that is (shout out to Assistant Editor Gaby Wilson for the spot-on style reference!). Marina's been working serious beauty game these days too, rarely seen without bubblegum pink lipstick, major mascara, and her trademark miniature heart on her left cheekbone. So it's only appropriate that she shows off all of this for the October/November issue of Foam magazine.
Last week, we spotted iCarly star Miranda Cosgrove at the "Teachers Rock" Benefit in L.A. wearing, appropriately enough, an outfit that actually made us WISH we could go back to school. Yep, it was just that cute. With a rivet-encrusted collar and navy plaid motif, Miranda's Juicy Couture checkered top somehow managed to hopscotch the line between collegiate and trendy. With a tailored cut and tartan pattern, it's totally dresscode-friendly. But at the same time, the pointy collar, eye-grabbing embellishments, and back zipper make it the sleeveless blouse an after-class staple, too. Turns out we're not the only ones in love- Carly Rae Jepsen AND Iggy Azalea have also turned out in the top this week. And the cool part is, all three girls rock it in totally different ways.
Is this Chanel neckpiece a necklace or a collar? Either way, Emma Stone looks awesome.

Is there any magazine Emma Stone hasn't been in this summer? From sharing shoots with her on and off-screen love Andrew Garfield to covers shot solo (on Vogue, no less), the actress, who is without a doubt one of our all time faves on screen, is also one of our favorites on the page. In her latest spread, for Interview, Emma takes a break from rocking spotless couture and cute fall basics to get a little futuristic on us. Sporting a stunning Chanel necklace (when does a necklace become a collar, we wonder), and lit in moody magentas, Stone looks every bit a warrior, and there's hardly a hint of her usual style. Not that we didn't already think Emma was a badass, but we never imagined her glaring at us with a smokey eye and a look for which 'smoldering' is an understatement. Paired with a slick blonde pompadour and a gaggle of hot dudes in sunglasses, this is a future we'd be more than happy to live in.

LA-based DJ-to-the-stars Lindsay Luv is a CA-UTIE, and I’m not just talking about her adorbs DJ name. I’m talking about drooling over her penchant for a good smokey eye, blood-red lips, and major '90s towering platforms. And not just any platforms, you guys—she OWNS a pair of Scary Spice’s signed platforms (above). (When I found out she’s BFFs with Mel B, I ugly cried a little and seriously stanned out a.k.a. collapsed, got on my knees begging whilst throwing wads of cash at Luv before revealing my deep dark secret [see: my 11-year-old “job” as the founder of the Spice Gazette circa ‘97 AOL A/S/L chatroom days, which folded after experiencing post-Ginger Spice depression and discovering Britney Spears.] *sigh*) Well, Luv unfortunately wouldn’t budge on those leopard-patterned beauties, so I settled for interviewing her for Favorite Things. Spoiler alert: You’re gonna luv it (heh), particularly those Chanel gold mesh fingerless gloves and her Lady Gaga signed album LP. #killmenow Time to spice up your closets, y’all.
