Now Miley can wear pink whenever.

Between all of the theme-park-scaled stage sets, dangerously narrow bodysuits, and intimate interviews with Miley Cyrus (clad in her undergarments and a rainbow tiara), there was a lot to take in from the Bangerz Tour documentary on NBC. So, it's entirely plausible you missed the bit where Miley compares her elementary school experience to Mean Girls—she was in the IRL Plastics, essentially.
Like Mean Girls, Miley's sixth grade crew had designated pink days and repeat outfits were forbidden. You'd get kicked out, she revealed, if you didn't wear pink in your yearbook picture. The rules in Miley's group were hardcore enforced.
Here is a dream that's almost 20 years in the making: Cher Horowitz's game-changing closet organizing software from the movie Clueless is finally a reality. [Our immediate reaction.] Thanks to the virtual fitting room technology known as Metail, you can virtually dress yourself with an updated take on Cher's iconic wardrobe. If you want to really feel like you're living out the first few moments of Clueless, throw on David Bowie's "Fashion" while browsing through the program.
Seriously though, how great is this? Even though you can't shop Cher's exact wardrobe (yet)—we have a feeling that development isn't far behind—you can finally see how you'd look in Cher's yellow suit. The program allows users to digitally try clothes on using virtual models—Cher makes it seem so easy to pull the look off, but—like any outfit—it's not for everyone. There are, of course, others who can effortlessly wear the look: Iggy Azalea in the "Fancy" video, for example.
Yesterday it was announced that Zendaya will be starring in Lifetime's upcoming Aaliyah biopic (!!!), which is all sorts of brilliant because (a) Z's basically been acting since she was born and will surely do the part justice, and (b) the ink hasn't even dried on her contract, but she's *already* nailing Aaliyah's style.
The 17-year-old Disney actress has been taking style cues from the R&B legend for years, which is saying a lot because, well, she's 17. Zendaya does a ton of paying homage to the late great Miss Haughton on Instagram (see what I mean?!), and she even dressed up as her for Halloween last year in an incredibly enviable '90s-era Tommy Hilfiger getup.
So, check out our favorite times she's channeled the Age Ain't Nothing But a Number icon.
RETRO TOMMY HILFIGER
Over the weekend Miley Cyrus posted a pre-shower selfie in which the front of her hair is standing up straight. Completely by itself. While it appears to be magic, it probably is actually just dirty and capable of holding the last style she had it in all by itself. I've been there, though I don't normally show off when my hair looks like this to my 10.8 million Instagram followers.
While she attributes the style to The Little Rascals' Alfalfa, his hair actually sticks up in the back. Cameron Diaz in There's Something About Mary seems more fitting, right?
Been watching 'Ghost World,' Katy?

Uh, is it just us or has Katy Perry been spending her extra hours online, googling “counterculture?” Over the past few months, she’s dyed her hair slime green, shopped at VFILES, and even worn Lil B’s face on her dress, which is all to say she’s come a long way from her quirky pinup “I Kissed a Girl” days. Honestly though, we’re feeling this new Katy—especially her most recent look, which seems to nod to one of the greatest films ever made, at least if you ask me: Ghost World. It’s just one of those movies that sticks with you, scene by scene, pithy phrase by phrase, and, of course, outfit by outfit. So when we saw Katy wearing thick-framed glasses, a throwback grunge look with her faded slime green hair, combat boots, and a general air of apathy, we immediately thought of movie’s awesome protagonist Enid, played by Thora Birch.

Happy Mean Girls Day! It's been a whirlwind of celebrating the 10th anniversary of the early-aughts teen classic—serendipitously on a Wednesday—but before you tuck the Plastics and Cady away, presumably until October 3 (if not earlier), we caught up with the film's costume designer Mary Jane Fort to discuss the wardrobe that launched a thousand (or more) flippy plaid miniskirts. We chat about pulling inspiration for the fashion-heavy film, collaborating with Tina Fey, and what a 10-year high school reunion might look like for Cady and company.
MTV STYLE: Well, first of all, I'm just super excited to be talking to you. This movie's wardrobe is responsible for 100% of the skirts I bought in my teens. How did you go about researching for this project?
MARY JANE FORT: Well, for Mean Girls, we started with—and I always start with—what is real. And then you take it to wherever it needs to go. We started with real high school students, real schools, real yearbooks, going to a couple of high schools and seeing what people really look like.

Happy birthday, Mean Girls! The movie that defined the early aughts and gave the world enough quotes to last a lifetime turns 10 today—which officially makes us feel ancient. Tina Fey's masterpiece has taught us a lot over the past decade, from basic calculus (the limit does not exist!) to the dangers of an all-carb diet. But perhaps most lasting are the various fashion lessons the film doles out. After watching Mean Girls, have you been able to buy a skirt without asking your friends first if it looked good? Or worn track pants on a day other than Friday? I didn't think so.

And let us not forget the most important decree in the Plastics' Rulebook: "On Wednesdays, we wear pink." How appropriate that Mean Girls' 10th birthday falls on a Wednesday! To celebrate this twist of fate, we decided to look back at some of our favorite rosy fashion moments from the past year—as well as a few older, iconic looks that we HAD to include. Pink is just so fetch, don't you agree?
Nicki Minaj at 'The Other Woman' premiere.

OK. We are officially obsessed with Nicki Minaj's newly subtle and sophisticated style. Remember how perfectly beautiful she looked at the MTV Movie Awards this year? (I, personally, haven't been able to forget.) She decided to take a similar route at the premiere for her new movie The Other Woman last night, and we got deja vu in ALL the right ways. Her cream-colored, knitted Alexander McQueen dress was just as discreetly striking and conservative as the black McQueen from a couple weeks ago. Maybe even MORE SO, what with its unique texture and neckline and all.
Taylor Kitsch on the set of 'The Normal Heart.'

A few things before we jump into the JEANS. Have you heard about The Normal Heart yet? It's HBO's forthcoming original film about HIV/AIDS awareness in the '80s, based off the popular play of the same name and stars Julia Roberts, Mark Ruffalo, Jim Parsons, Matt Bomer, and Taylor Kitsch. If you've watched at least 15 minutes of Friday Night Lights in your lifetime, you are probably in love with
Tim Riggins Taylor Kitsch. Me too. So why am I just finding out that the CROTCH of his jeans for The Normal Heart needed to be "ELONGATED"?!???!?!???!???!? *Googles film's premiere date, clears out schedule for May 25, gives many thanks that the following day is a holiday, allowing for a full 24 hours of recovery*
As you are probably aware, the 2014 MTV Movie Awards are a mere four days away. One of our favorite categories, especially in a year like this when the competition is so fierce, is Best On-Screen Transformation. To underscore just how incredible these five transformations are, we made GIFs morphing them from their normal, IRL selves into their cinematic alter-egos. Be warned: They're totally mesmerizing. Writing this post took me an extra 20 minutes because I kept watching Orlando Bloom change into Legolas. Now that it's finished, I will resume my watching.
JARED LETO INTO RAYON IN 'DALLAS BUYERS CLUB'

For his role in Dallas Buyers Club, Jared Leto lost 30 pounds and lived as his character, Rayon. As you can see in the GIF, his face grew thinner, he lost his beard and eyebrows, and became an expert at contouring. Whether the world's most perfect ombre is under that cap, we may never know.
