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.

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?

Giant movie franchises based on popular books are kind of a thing right now. There's huge hype beforehand, lots of internet hullaballoo when the film premieres, and then it all dies down little by little until the next franchise peeps around the corner. It's kind of like when Halloween candy goes on the shelves in August but is completely forgotten about on November 1st, but it doesn't involve as much tooth rot or unwearable costumes. Such is not the case with The Hunger Games, though. (Random thought: how many Katniss's are we gonna see this October 31? I totally call dibs on Effie Trinket!) The dystopian teen survival story of Katniss Everdeen (played by the super talented Jennifer Lawrence), who is chosen to battle to the death in a televised Survivor-like thrill fest is still going strong, especially in the fashion world. Case in point, Calvin Klein released a Katniss Dress on Net-a-Porter today that is, well, insanely expensive and not very Katniss-like.

How EXCITED are you guys to see Marvel's The Avengers?? Between Chris Evans's Captain America and Scarlett Johansson's sultry Black Widow (and Robert Downey Jr.'s everything always), we're beside ourselves with anticipation for this projected blockbuster. Last night, sunny Los Angeles hosted the Cali premiere of the action adventure flick, and along with expectedly swagged out cast, some of our favorite PYTs (specifically Kat Graham, Debby Ryan, Bella Thorne, and Shay Mitchell) turned it out on the red carpet in dark dark blue frocks. Trend alert!

As summer approaches, you should be thinking of one very important element for your warm weather wardrobe: ARMOR. That's right, one of the biggest upcoming blockbusters is Snow White and the Huntsman starring Kristen Stewart as a stronger, more badassier Snow White who dons velvet, wrap-around braids, and—you guessed it—a suit of armor. So, does this mean we're all going to have to invest in chain mail? We thought a bodice of cold, hard steel might be K-Stew's only costume choice from what we've spied in the trailer so far, but thanks to MTV News (holla!) we now have an exclusive behind the scenes look at what went into the costume design for the film straight from the designer herself, Colleen Atwood. Aside from discussing Snow White's costume elements, she talks about Charlize Theron's bone-enhanced wicked queen and reveals how to sword fight in a dress.
