Hailee Steinfeld on the set of "Can A Song Save Your Life?"

In the world of pop culture fashion, it takes a LOT for us to do a double-take these days (after all, meat dresses, teddy bear shoes, and bright blue hair are kind of the norm... ). But even so, we had to check twice yesterday to make sure that it really was Hailee Steinfeld looking all art school-grunge on the set of her new movie Can A Song Save Your Life? We're used to seeing the actress in her fair share of high-fashion getups, but for her newest role, as a young New York student named Violet, she's traded Miu Miu for crop tops, hot pants, and sky high wedge booties. We love the downtown mishmash of her leopard rainbow tank, super short gray shorts, and layered jewelry. To complete the outfit, she's topped it all off with dark eye makeup, a denim backpack, and, something we've never seen before on the smiley 15-year-old... a scowl.

Justin Bieber was barely an afterthought when The Goonies hit theaters in 1985 (to be fair, so was I), but that's clearly not stopping him from offering up a sartorial homage to the cult classic film. Okay, so we don't actually know if the EXTREME likeness Bieber's latest outfit bears to Brand's illustrated ensemble on the OG Goonies poster was a pointed, let alone conscious, decision, but we also don't know that it wasn't! *twiddles fingers maniacally* Granted, Justin has the right to wear a bandana tied around his head without getting a bajillion trillion questions about it, but stirring the pot is way more fun than an appreciative (read: zzzzzzz) head nod.
Katy Perry shut down Hollywood Boulevard in this show-stopping, cinematic look.
Hollywood Boulevard was transformed into a concert venue yesterday, as Katy Perry blocked off the avenue and took to the stage before the premiere of her new 3D concert documentary, Katy Perry: Part of Me. Decked out in an at-the-movies-themed bustier-strategically placed film reels and all-and a thematically matching popcorn skirt, Perry performed songs spanning her career, from her first single "I Kissed A Girl" all the way up to "Wide Awake." Of course, no Katy performance would be complete without at least one costume change of some kind, and Perry delivered by slipping out of her skirt to reveal a pair of high-waisted, candy bar print hotpants. While this transformation has nothing on the eight costume changes Katy completes during her performance of "Hot N Cold" in the concert doc, it's definitely something.
Katy Perry's Dolce & Gabbana has elements of both graceful old hollywood and playful rockabilly.
After wowing the crowd out on the boulevard, Katy took a more traditional, albeit still totally glam, route on the red, or wait, excuse me, pink, carpet. Wearing a strapless, bright red cocktail length gown and matching red pumps, Katy looked every bit the silver screen darling posing with friends and family. We love the dress, with its luxuriously draped sweetheart bodice and peek-a-boo black crinoline for a little bit of rockabilly flair, but the real wow factor comes in the close up. The Dolce & Gabbana masterpiece isn't your typical summer silk, no: it's velvet. While it's an unlikely choice for a summer premiere and Katy was probably close to sweltering in the LA desert heat, we loved the pure, unabashed glamor of the look. It's Katy's party, and she'll wear velvet in the summer if she wants to (also props to Johnny Wujek, most fearless stylist ever, as always). We would be remiss if we didn't also mention Katy's beyond bonkers nail game, featuring 3D glasses, another film reel, and popcorn, painted over ruby slipper glitter. The mani matched Katy's iced out birthday cake slice clutch, well, sweetly, and really sent her ultra-luxe look over the top.
Katy Perry and Johnny Wujek: Besties.
The bond between a pop star and her stylist is a special one. Through thick and thin, wardrobe malfunctions and red carpet victories, they are a team, bonded together by double sided tape and sequins. Perhaps one of the most dynamic star/stylist duos is that of Katy Perry and Johnny Wujek. We caught up with Johnny just last week to talk about some of his favorite things, and now Katy herself is making her own introduction to the man behind the neon and candy canes in a new clip from her Katy Perry: Part of Me 3D concert film. We know we don't even have to tell you how excited we are for the movie, and a large part of our excitement is getting to go behind the scenes in Katy's dressing room to see just HOW those light up, spinning, gleaming costumes are rigged together. The man is a genius, we tell you, a genius. Watch the clip after the jump!

In case you didn't already know, Robert Pattinson loves Gucci. He's been sporting their suits in real life AND on the big screen (see: Cosmopolis) for as long as we can remember, but in the most recent edition of British GQ, we found out juuuuust how far his love affair with Gucci goes (Spoiler alert: It's far). He told the mag he has Gucci's creative director Frida Giannini's number basically on speed dial. "The amount of times I've been stuck in some random city and have called her up and had things brought in at absolutely the last minute—it's crazy," he said. "But also all this stuff is custom-made. You can do quite crazy things [with color] if you have incredibly classic, really well-made suits. I guess I've been quite boring for a while. I used to be more interesting with them. Now I always just request things two days before: 'Can you send 25 suits?' I don't even know what I want to wear!" I'm sorry, did he say TWENTY. FIVE. suits? Yep.
What do you think of Andre's Jimi Hendrix?.
Ok, so Andre Benjamin, a.k.a. Outkast's Andre 3000, already had a bit of a resemblance to rock legend Jimi Hendrix, even before being cast in the upcoming biopic of the singer's life, All is By My Side. That said, the latest photos from the set show a pretty awesome portrayal. Biopics are always hard, because when they get too close it's kind of creepy, but not close enough and it's the worst. The film, which is shooting in Dublin, Ireland, focuses on the singer and guitarist's life right around the time his career really took off, in the mid-1960's, while recording Are You Experienced? in London. In the photos, Andre is wearing quintessential psychedelic duds- a patterned shirt, patterned vest, and plum corduroys, entirely mismatched but remaining in the same colorway.
Katy Perry's 3D film extravaganza Part Of Me hits theaters this Fourth of July weekend (July 5 to be exact), so as is customary for Miss Perry (she can never get enough of a theme), she and her team put together an appropriately festive promotional poster. There are two versions of the flyer (and you can vote for your favorite on Twitter!), but on both versions of this movie teaser, Katy wears head-to-toe Wildfox Couture - a slouchy "Born on the 4th of July" cropped sweater and pink-and-white printed "Bright Star" rodeo shorts. Set against a night sky of exploding fireworks, Katy looks sweet and summer-ready in this star spangled outfit.
Tobey Maguire and Joel Edgington look dapper in their suits on the set of 'The Great Gatsby".
In the trailer for Baz Luhrmann's screen adaptation of the F. Scott Fitzgerald classic The Great Gatsby, Daisy Buchanan (played by Carey Mulligan) can be heard calling Leonardo DiCaprio's Gatsby, "the man in the cool, beautiful shirts." As she says this, the camera focuses on a number of classic men's button downs raining from the upper balcony of what looks like a library. Well it turns out, those shirts are going to be made by none other than the legendary menswear brand Brooks Brothers. The company is the "official men's clothier of the film," WWD reports, and will create over 500 outfits for the flick, with the help of costume designer Catherine Martin. Not that we doubt the designer could have done it on her own--Martin has designed the duds for all of Luhrmann's films, including Moulin Rouge and Romeo + Juliet.
"Advanced Style" documents stylish older women living in New York City.

Style is not a privilege meant only for the nubile and spry, the lucky youth whose skin hasn't lost a morsel of elastin. Nope. Style is learned and earned, and its a thing that never leaves you, even after your podiatrist tells you that you probably should start wearing flats more often. And thank GOODNESS, because I'm not trying to stop all of this just because my birthday cakes house too many candles for my lungs to withstand. *hair flip* This is the heartbeat of the forthcoming Advanced Style documentary, the pet project of Ari Seth Cohen, creator of the book and blog of the same name, which spotlights several of New York City's most stylish, older women.
Lindsay Lohan wears an Elizabeth Taylor-inspired swimsuit on the set of Liz & Dick.
'Old Hollywood glamour' is a phrase we use a lot around these parts. Typically embodied by strong hair and makeup and classic silhouettes, the red carpet staple of so many starlettes makes us nostalgic for the women who wore those looks before they were anything more than what people wore. Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly, and, of course, Dame Elizabeth Taylor-with her signature beauty mark and violet eyes-are some of the women we look to so frequently for inspiration. While all three women also lived their lives in the spotlight. Lindsay Lohan is much more modern kind of star, but she shares the effortless elegance of her predecessors, as well as the burden of living her life in the public eye. We've seen Lilo transform into a nearly flawless Marilyn for NY Mag (photos NSFW, FYI), and now, thanks to upcoming Lifetime Original Movie Liz & Dick, we get to see the actress take on the iconic Liz Taylor. Early on set photos have begin to surface, showing Lindsay in a leopard print one-piece swimsuit aboard a yacht, not unlike a suit Taylor herself was photographed in. The film, which only began shooting on June 1st, is said to have Lindsay in at least 66 unique costumes, and we couldn't be more impatient to see more!
