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!
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.
Robert Pattinson in Gucci for "Cosmopolis."

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.
