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!
Just announced today! Johnny Depp will be honored with the 2012 MTV Movie Awards Generation Award live on Sunday night for his gigantic contribution to the film industry. Eeee! From Edward Scissorhands to Pirates of the Caribbean to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Johnny has been the leading man in some of the most iconic films of all time. During his nearly 30-year long career, he has also sported some of the most show-stopping onscreen ensembles we have ever seen. The makeup in his Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter get-up ALONE is worthy enough of standing ovation, but hey, let's take it alllll back to where it began—with some curly hair in a popular 1984 flick called A Nightmare on Elm Street.

The Look: A young, fresh-faced Johnny Depp showed off his preppier side in the horror flick by sporting a light blue and white color-blocked polo with a signature permed '80s 'do. Also, THOSE. BROWS.
It seems these post-Harry Potter days are equally magical for Miss Emma Watson. We're less than a week away from our MTV Movie Awards pre-show peek at the trailer for The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and Entertainment Weekly is ALREADY giving us our first taste of Watson's NEXT film, The Bling Ring. With Bling, Sofia Coppola adapts the true story of a group of teenagers who looted the homes of stars like Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan for the screen, and the costume design for the film is appropriately louche for these fame-obsessed Los Angeles bandits.

The 2012 Cannes Film Festival is currently in full-swing, and one of the most hotly anticipated film debuts of the week is Cosmopolis, a cinematic adaptation of the Don DeLillo novel of the same name, courtesy of king of strange and the man behind The Fly David Cronenberg. Robert Pattinson leaves Edward Cullen and Cedric Diggory in the dust for this major chance at art cred as the film's lead, Eric Parker, a young billionaire who picks just about the worst day ever to trek across Manhattan for a haircut. But yogurt-thick plotlines, unexpected tonsorial spoilers, and odyssey epics aside, we're here to answer the question burning on the tip of everyone's tongue. What is R.Pattz going to be WEARING on this day-long trip to the barber?? The answer: Gucci.

I don't know if you could tell, but we here at MTV Style are reeeeeally excited for the July release of Katy Perry's Part of Me 3-D concert film. I mean, seeing her Candyfornia tour wardrobe appear close enough to touch? Over 50 outfits in one 2 minute trailer?? We can't. But we will. One such outfit that may not have made the initial trailer but gets its due limelight in the latest sneak peek of the surefire summer blockbuster is this illustrated graphic tee that Katy wears during a stage rehearsal. Bold stripes and the bearded visage of an illustrated Egyptian royal grace the white crewneck and look MIGHT familiar to our keen hawk-like fashion oculars. We recognize this shirt!
Harry Styles may audition for the role of Mick Jagger in "Exile On Main St" biopic.

One Direction's premiere album has been out scant two months (debuting at #1 no less), and due to their mammoth success, the group is already making plans for their 2013 summer tour. Yes, 2013. As in next summer. More than a full calendar year away. Clearly conquering the music industry, it seems one Directioner might be making moves to cross over into film. According to People.co.uk, heartthrob Harry Styles may be thinking about auditioning to play Mick Jagger in an upcoming Rolling Stones biopic. Swoonworthy stage appeal aside, there is definitely a physical likeness there, but the role of Mick Jagger would be as much about embodying the legend's character as confidently carrying Mick's unmistakable steez. Do we think Harry can do it?

We’ll always obsess over Chloe Moretz as the adorable, precocious little sis in 500 Days of Summer, but here’s a newsflash for you: the Georgia-born actress is all grown up, and she’s got the style sense to prove it. The 15-year-old has already rocked chokers with ball gowns, rubbed elbows with designer wunderkinds like Jason Wu, and even scored MaxMara’s “Face of the Future Award.” Not bad for somone who hasn’t even gotten her driver’s license yet, right? Now she’s really putting the nail in the fashion coffin (pun intended) with her new ‘70s vampire movie, Dark Shadows.

The movie is still several months from our anxious eyes, but anyone with an Instagram account is probably well-aware of Spring Breakers and its rowdy and nubile cast of heroines. The scantily clad Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, Rachel Korine, and Vanessa Hudgens have been all up in your Internetz, blowing kisses and riding mopeds in skimpy bikinis and Nike Dunks, and now the good people of Interview Magazine have given Harmony Korine's crew of good girls gone wild their own editorial spread.
Cinderella and her infamous glass slipper.

Did you know that it was National Princess Week? Neither did we, and it's already Friday! What does this mean? Well, we have some celebrating to do in the name of princesses everywhere. (We're gazing your way, Kate Middleton.) Looks like we aren't the only ones getting into the spirit, either. Christian Louboutin just announced via WWD that he will design a pair of glass slippers in honor of the Blu-Ray and DVD rerelease of Walt Disney's Cinderella this summer. Whatever will these "magic touch" creations look like?
