Kristen Stewart on the set of "Snow White and the Huntsman."

First, we got a taste of Kristen Stewart's hard-edge Snow White and the Huntsman look back in July with the release of the movie's first promo photos. Then, we caught a glimpse of K.Stew's Snow White-ready long dark locks at London Fashion Week. NOW, we're finally putting it all together with these recent snapshots from the set of the upcoming movie of Kristen clad in full-on plated, Joan-of-Arc-worthy battle armor. And riding horses along the coastline. LIKE A BOSS.

When you watch a movie like Drive, it's easy to admire director Nicolas Winding Refn's polished artistic vision or the fine acting (and the fiiiiiiine face/bod/everything) of Ryan Gosling. But we'd like to call your attention to the work of costume designer Erin Benach, particularly the iconic white satin jacket which Ryan's character, Driver, wears throughout the film. A recent interview with Benach revealed the gargantuan efforts behind its creation (clearly, you do not just buy a jacket like that off the rack). And whaddaya know, "special and awesome and unique" Ryan (Benach's words, though we certainly agree) was totally involved in the process. "We discuss everything beforehand," Benach, who has worked with Ryan before on Blue Valentine and Half Nelson, coos. Hmph.

New York Fashion Week is over, and for the sartorially minded among us who are not jetting off for London, Paris, and Milan and maybe feeling a bit bereft, a wee smidge depressed not to have our eyeballs constantly inundated with gorgeous togs, look no further than a movie coming out this weekend called Restless. Directed by the spectacular Gus Van Sant with brilliant, sensitive performances by Henry Hopper and Mia Wasikowska, the film is a quiet, nuanced project that focuses on the burgeoning love between Enoch and Annabel in the face of death.
I KNOW, I KNOW, sounds like a complete bummer, and why would I offer this up to soothe your blues, etc., etc. But the thing you should know about this truly sweet and startlingly light project is that the costume designer is a man by the name of Danny Glicker (whose work you will have seen in Transamerica, Thank You For Smoking, Milk, and Up In The Air), and he is nothing if not a trove of style gems. Prepare for a #longreads nerd-out session, the likes of which have never before been seen on MTV Style. I love this man and strongly suggest you read all eleven-bananzillion words in our Q&A. Trust me, learning feels good on the eyeballs too.

Anytime ANYTHING Breaking Dawn-related emerges, we must stop everything we're doing to concentrate fully on whatever new VAMPTASTICNESS (or WOLFMAZINGNESS, depending on what team you're rooting for) is at hand. We have to scrutinize, stare intensely, then rewatch it over and over again so as to imprint upon it and, hopefully, cause the movie to magically appear in its entirety before our very eyes. (Really, can Nov. 18 hurry up and get herrrre?) So, now that a NEW trailer for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 1 has been released (and oh my CULLEN, is it GAHHHHMAZING), we had to fashion-focus on the wedding outfits—which we were only shown mere glimpses of—to see who was wearing what. Luckily, thanks to a Twitter tip-off from @courtjustice (MEGA SHOUT-OUT!), we didn't have to focus that intensely because her lazer-gaze sleuthing has uncovered the possibility that Ashley Greene (aka Alice Cullen) might be wearing a Zac Posen bridesmaid dress! Let's BREAK this DAWN—we mean down—shall we?
The 2011 NIKE MAG shoe and Michael J. Fox in 1989's "Back to the Future II."
Ever since we first saw Back to the Future II, we've bided our time until the year 2015, when we, like Michael J. Fox's character Marty McFly, would be able to experience hoverboards, flying cars, food hydrator machines, and scarily accurate weather forecasts. But as time passed, we lost hope of ever knowing what it'd feel like to cook a pizza in seconds or know FOR SURE whether or not it would rain on any given day.
Nike must have heard our pleas, because they're releasing the NIKE MAG high-top shoes, a replica of the rad original pair worn by Michael J. Fox in the movie. If you don't know what we're talking about (as in, you were too lost in Michael's baby blues), get this: these sneakers did ALL the work, including forming to Marty's foot and tying his shoelaces. While Nike's 2011 edition doesn't do that (hey, it's four years ahead of its time), the futuristic-looking shoe features an electroluminescent NIKE in the strap and a glowing LED panel, which lights up for five hours per charge. 'Cause, you know, shoes that illuminate are WAY more awesome than your average high-top.
Only 1,500 people will get to look as fly as McFly. Starting TODAY at 8:30 p.m. PST, the shoes will be auctioned off via eBay's Fashion Vault, with all net proceeds going to The Michael J. Fox Foundation. Now, where are our acid-washed jeans?

Cher and Josh, now and then.

Alicia Silverstone and Paul Rudd were reunited at a recent screening of Rudd's new movie Our Idiot Brother in New York, and the interwebs were ABLAZE with "OMG, IT'S CHER AND JOSH!" reunion sentiments. If you can believe this (and/or aren't too young to realize that what I'm about to type makes my fingertips shake with sweet granny decrepitude), it's been 16 YEARS since Clueless charmed our then young (sniffle) selves with its Southern Cali brand of clever, teen-beat glamour. It's kind of crazy to think that Cher and Josh—er, Alicia and Paul—have grown up to become respected working actors (and sad that we will never see what the adorable "rolling with my homies" Brittany Murphy might have continued to create). Still, I can't help but stare at these photos longingly until my eyes glaze over and send me into a hypnotic trance; in fact, it's AS IF what I'm staring at is ACTUALLY Cher and Josh 16 years later...
Edward Cullen and Bella Swan (aka Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart) in 'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part One.'

Attention Twi-Hards, we are EXACTLY THREE MONTHS TO THE DAY away from the premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part One. Can you feel your heart leaping and your pulse quickening? Are you fighting the urge to release a primal scream at the mere thought of—gasp—the upcoming vampire slash human nuptials of one Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson? (We mean Bella Swan and Edward Cullen, of course, how could we mix that up?) Well prepare yo'selves, Twilighters, because the kind folks over at Summit Entertainment just released a bevy of new photos from the movie that have us gnashing our chompers at how long we have to wait for this vampy wedded bliss (answer: TOO LONG). In the meantime, we fully intend to scrutinize these new photos of Bella relaxing in her most intimate, er, COMFORTABLE pre-wedding and honeymoon loungewear. Is it just us or does something look strangely tame in vampland?
Soon, there will be "Twilight" stationery, as well.

All we know is that it's beautiful, body-squeezing, and made by Carolina Herrera. Any other minute detail concerning Bella Swan's wedding dress debuting in The Twilight Saga : Breaking Dawn is guarded like the treasure that it is, closely kept under wraps by the tiny elves that live inside the walls of Summit Entertainment. So while we have no idea what the dress will actually look like, fashion insider Women's Wear Daily has confirmed that bridal designer Alfred Angelo has secured the exclusive right to create and sell Vampire Wedding of the Century dress imitations. The collection will be named Twilight Bridal, and of course won't be revealed until, you know, the dress actually appears before human eyes, but the bridal designer is quick-thinking in nailing the rights to replicate the gown.
It’s not enough that Tom Felton is tall, witty, and comes with a cute British accent (which makes every word out of his mouth seem both clever and charming). No, the star of Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes (in theaters today!) also happens to be a style savant with a penchant for deliciously skinny ties and polished blazers. When we can drag our eyes away from those piercing baby blues and lips that seem perpetually pressed into an adorable smirk (Emma Watson, aka GODDESS, had a crush on him, people), we’re focusing on his killer sartorial choices. After careful study, we’ve concluded that 23-year-old Tom is indeed Slyther-ing to the top of our style charts (hahaahaha... [SUCK IT, we’re going through Draco withdrawal]).
Like any pro, Tom sticks to a few signature trends and breezily repeats them (with elegant results) on the red carpet. We break them down for you here.

Bella's wedding look...without the dress.

Some may say Will and Kate were the wedding event of the century, but that's clearly hyperbole. The real wedding we are holding onto our hankies for doesn't even exist, and that is the one between Twilights' Edward and Bella. Duh. The internet has been a hot, hungry cesspool of speculation, and the Twilight crew has been doing an absolutely wonderful job of feeding our appetite without giving anything too revealing away. Which is actually great—we want to be surprised, but our shock and awww (GET IT? PUNZ.) won't diminish if we know just a few deets, right? Like, maybe Kristen Stewart needing to cover up with a Volturi cape every time filming was paused like she was some sort of vampire captive?
