Aubrey Plaza for 'Complex.'

The last time we spotted Aubrey Plaza on a magazine cover, she was snuggling up to a cat on the front page of Bust. Now she's posing with another prop for the April/May issue of Complex, but instead of a cuddly animal the actress is double fisting two cans of silly string?! Yep, our favorite Parks and Rec star is showing her funny side yet again for the mag, dressed in a simple pink romper and adorned with some, um, festive accessories (if you can even call silly string that...?). She also shows her stuff inside the feature posing with a bear mask, banana peels, AND a Whoopie Cushion, all while still managing to squeeze in some impressive smize action. Hey Tyra, better watch your back!
Ioanna Gika for House Of Holland Eyewear.

Ugh, don't you sometimes, or maybe always, secretly wish you were a rock star? While we gave up on any dreams of actually winning Grammys or playing to sold out, screaming crowds years ago (*sigh*) we still sometimes get that pang of jealousy when we see one of our fave lady musicians doing something particularly fabulous. That's exactly how we felt when we saw that the awesome Ioanna Gika, front woman for Los Angeles shoegaze-pop outfit IO Echo and Jeremy Scott hologram kimono enthusiast, had taken on the task of filling Iggy Azaleas very big shoes as the face of House Of Holland eyewear. While Iggy's campaign was all about color, Ioanna's brings a little bit more atmosphere to the table, with the singer posing in a kind of 70's kitsch backdrop, her hair crimped into a big triangle that we're sure roller girl would approve of. Obviously she wears a kimono in the shoot, as well.
Sky Ferreira for Forever 21.

It's March, and you know what that means...festival season is upon us, y'all! While your SXSW, Coachella, and Lollapalooza plans might still be up in the air, Forever 21 has got you covered in the wardrobe department (phew!). The retail giant has just debuted a brand new Festival 2013 Capsule Collection, and the dreamy campaign is fronted by none other than the ULTIMATE festival darling herself, Sky Ferreira. The pop star is no stranger to killer onstage fashion, and since she's slated to perform at this month's SXSW, Coachella in April, and Pitchfork in July, we'll be seeing a lot more of her '90s schoolgirl style this summer. And yes, that's a VERY good thing.

The more we learn about Demi Lovato's attitude toward fashion, the more we desperately want to go shopping with her. We're still waiting for that perfect opportunity to hit the racks with D, but in the latest episode of VEVO Stylized, we get a little taste of what it might be like. Demi and her stylist Soulmaz Vosough shop for Miss Lovato's recent trip to the UK and London Fashion Week. They sift through what looks like a curated Topshop selection (of COURSE) and dive deep on Demi's fashion philosophy and current favorites all while soundtracked to D's new single "Heart Attack."
Charli XCX and Sky Ferreira at yesterday's NME Awards.

Well, looks like somebody- make that TWO people- have been brushing up on their Clueless, their Spice Girls, and their Daria! Two of our absolute fave '90s babies, Charli XCX and Sky Ferreira attended the NME Awards yesterday in London, decked out in their retro grunge girl best and showing off their own takes on '90s staples. Charli's been obsessed with the Spice Girls since pretty much forever, and it shows- in her music AND style, whether it's Buffalo platform shoes, rubber bracelets, or crop tops. The London singer brought back the decade in full force on the red carpet last night, rocking her beloved Buffalos (she told The Fader that she owns 6 pairs!) as well as a knee-length plaid pleated skirt, long-sleeve crop, and ripped tights. Then there's Sky, who took a different twist on the '90s trends with her trademark schoolgirl uniform.
Chloe Moretz, Kate Bosworth, and Jessica Chastain rock white hues at the Chanel pre-Oscar dinner.

It's easy to get swept up in the Oscars in and of itself, but now that we're finally out of our Academy Awards hangover, it's time to see what ELSE was happening in the buildup to the big event. Earlier this week Chanel hosted a pre-Oscars dinner in Los Angeles, and spoiler alert: the party was filled to the brim with some of our favorite Hollywood PYTs looking amazing. Shocking, we know. It should probably go without saying that the stars were decked out in clothes courtesy of French fashion house (jealous!), but despite the fact that they were wearing the same designer, the attendees opted for one of two trends: light and dark. Take Chloe Moretz and Kate Bosworth, who skipped the official Oscars ceremony but still showed off their rad outfits early. The actresses looked totally adorable wearing Chanel shift dresses and basic round pumps, Chloe in an off-white tweed minidress, and Kate in a ladylike pale pink number. And then could who ever forget Jessica Chastain?! The Best Actress nominee stopped by the dinner wearing a pleated white frock with glittery embellishment, rounding out the ethereal light-hued trio perfectly. While these girls went pretty and angelic, fellow trendsetters Lily Collins, Zoe Kravtiz, and Ginnifer Goodwin took the opposite approach in gothy-glam dark looks.
Hailee Steinfeld at MaxMara's Fall 2013 show in Milan.
Wondering who fashion's brightest, youngest actress is this year? Look no further than MaxMara's annual crowning of the 2013 Women In Film MaxMara Face Of The Future Award winner. The prize, which is given to a young actress every year, is a pretty solid predictor of what young ingenue is going to majorly step up her fashion game in the year to come, and also an indicator of a starlet who hasn't been a sartorial slouch in years prior either. Last year's award was given to Chloë Grace Moretz, who already had a taste for Chanel, but has since gone to countless fashion shows, been on countless magazine covers, and been named the face of Aeropostale. So who is going to be blowing up our Instagram feeds with her stylish swag in 2013? Hailee Steinfeld, ladies and gentlemen! Yeah, we know you're totally not surprised, she has already been the face of Miu Miu, after all.
Remember back in November when Rihanna leaked her V Magazine photos, in which she appears in flagrante delicto alongside Kate Moss? Shot by the inimitable Mario Testino, the spread basically made the internet explode, but I don't think anyone expected to have to wait this long to see the real thing. The racy photos were shot by the inimitable Mario Testino, and feature Kate and Rihanna in various states of undress, save for a heavy, glossy dose of black eyeliner and the occasional splash of lingerie and menswear. The accompanying article addresses the leak head-on, saying that it was the result of a hack that Rihanna thought was the real deal until the magazine told her otherwise. "I posted them because I was so excited...I was so bummed because I thought they were so sick," Rihanna says in the article accompanying the shoot, and we TOTALLY feel her. Can you imagine how hard it would be to shoot with a LEGENDARY model like Kate Moss and an equally incredible photographer and then have to wait months to show off your photos? TORTURE, we say! Rihanna wasn't the only one who was super excited for the pairing, however: Kate and her daughter Lila Grace are huge Rihanna fans as well! Check out a behind the scenes video from the shoot after the jump, and try not to get too hot and bothered.
Lily Collins at the Costume Designers Guild Awards last night in Los Angeles.

We've been SO excited about the Costume Designers Guild Awards here at MTV Style, we've been counting to the big night with a series of exclusive interview with the masterminds behind some of our favorite outfits (catch up on them here!). The ceremony finally went down yesterday in Los Angeles, and the stars turned out to support their fave designers like Jacqueline Durran of Anna Karenina and Mirror Mirror‘s Eiko Ishioka, who each won the top awards for Outstanding Period Film Award and Outstanding Fantasy Film, respectively. And while we're serving up a huge congrats to all the winners, right now we HAVE TO discuss the gown that Mirror Mirror star Lily Collins rocked on the red carpet, because, well, it's amazing. The monochrome floor-length frock comes courtesy of Paule Ke, with a deep V-neck and an oversized white bow across the back. The look might not be quiteeee as backless as Selena Gomez these days, but the simple yet stunning cut is enough to make ANYONE sit up and take notice.

The pop goddesses have finally answered my prayers, and have gifted us with the salacious superstar known as Brooke Candy. That's the name she was born with, you guys, which makes me want to see, then frame, BK's family photo albums right now. Anyway, Brooke is like, SUPER HARDCORE, and a breath of fresh, fearless fashion-y air, which I really appreciate. She's got the best braid game since Janet circa Poetic Justice, mixed with a little The Fifth Element realness (that opera-singing alien is an underrated style icon, PS). BK showcases her aforementioned amazing braid weave with her immaculate braid-whipping in Grimes' "Genesis" music vid, which y'all should already know/obsess about. And girl can RAP. See: Candy's very own vid for "Everybody Does" which involves geckos crawling on her hot pink lips and bleached brows. We also share a common hobby of going topless in public, and she’s very candid about her other gig as a stripper. WORK THAT POLE, HONEY. In other words, move over pseudo bad ass pop starlets, Brooke Candy is where it's at. I'm obsessed with her rapid-fire in-yo-face lyrics but they're borderline NSFW, so, instead of quoting them, I'll just leave y'all with Favorite Things: Brooke Candy edish. Oh, I need those platformed Adidas in a size 11 btw.
