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.
Barbie releases Katniss Everdeen Barbie.

It was only a matter of time, but the onslaught of merchandise related to The Hunger Games now extends to the land of plastic, side-braid, arrow-toting, long-legged dolls. We're talking about the new Katniss Everdeen Barbie, of course, which is actually a real thing that you can pre-order now. The fine folks over at Entertainment Weekly offered an exclusive sneak-peek at the new Barbie doll which, we have to say, looks very much like her real-life counterpart played by Jennifer Lawrence complete with Games-gear including her seemingly fire-resistant jacket and Mockingjay pin. But, you guys, there's something else going on behind these gray eyes.
Have we had a formal conversation about how totally heart-breakingly ADORABLE Andrew Garfield is? We're 100 percent behind his relationship with Emma Stone (namely because our desperate want for Emma to be our collective BFF overrides any jealousy we might harbor for her man candy), but for goodness sake, we're only human. We tried to hold back our googley eyed twitterpation for Andrew in this latest appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, but a girl can only suffer so much immaculate English tailoring, exemplary grooming, and witty banter before she reaches her breaking point. ESPECIALLY when said British heartthrob is discussing his costume for The Amazing Spider-Man and his KEISTER at all angles. *rolls tongue sleeping bag style back into mouth*

Katy Perry released her Katy Perry: Part Of Me concert movie trailer today, and dudes, we need to TALK. Not only were we like, "OMG, KP WILL BE IN 3D!" when we watched it, but we also couldn't help but notice the ridic amount of outfit changes in this two-minute clip. Like, tons. We were so blown away, in fact, we had to count and find out just how many ensembles she was sporting. After multiple, MULTIPLE watches (we know the entire trailer by heart now, NBD) we counted over 50 outfits. Yeah, 5-0. Crazy! We spot Katy in everything from her candy-coated California Dreams tour performance outfits to her nitty gritty sweats during rehearsals. But you have to remember that with all the outfit changes ALSO comes new hair, so we decided to count and see just how many hairstyles she had throughout the clip. Can you guess how many times she switched up those locks?
Remember how yesterday we were all shocked by James Franco's new K-Fed-channelling look on the set of Spring Breakers? Well, according to Fuse, there is a real human origin story to this jaw-dropping style transformation, and it, unfortunately, doesn't involve Kevin Federline. J-Franc's new look is actually HEAVILY based on the unmistakable personal style of notorious From G's To Gents technicolor contestant Riff Raff. *MIND EXPLODES* Yup, that's right. Long story short, Riff Raff was supposed to appear in the film alongside Gucci Mane and Franco was slated for another role entirely, BUT due to some scheduling conflicts, Riff wasn't able to make Harmony Korine's shooting days, so James was re-cast as the unshakable would-be Gent.
Rihanna, Taylor Kitsch, and Brooklyn Decker at a photocall in London for "Battleship."
We don't need to tell him this, but Taylor Kitsch is the Luckiest Man in the World™. Not only has he bravely faced the film critics who have been heavily criticizing his latest movie, he is out to prove 'em all wrong with his next film, Battleship, which also stars the beguiling Rihanna (making her film debut!) and Brooklyn Decker. We have nothing but praise for our beloved Tim Riggins, we mean Kitsch, as his football-uniform-slash-jeans-and-boots-strewn performance in Friday Night Lights is one of the highlights of our lives. The dude is poised to become a bona fide matinee idol, and what better way to welcome this stature than with a Ri Ri and B-Decks cocktail dress sammie?

Just when you thought the Spring Breakers has Instagrammed every scene of Harmony Korine's star-studded upcoming flick, Selena Gomez uploads another Internet-buster. Not only are she and her saucy trouble-making co-stars, Ashley Benson, Vanessa Hudgens, and Rachel Korine scantily clad in their beachwear finest, the lovely ladies are also perched in a crisp white coupe with James Franco like you've never seen him before holding down the driver's seat.
