Are you ready to rock the holiday party circuit in skintight leather pants, a ripped t-shirt, dusty jean jacket, and motorcycle boots? Just in time for Christmas, Swedish retail-a-saurus H&M has announced that it will release a capsule collection of gritty-cool threads inspired by the upcoming gritty-cool, Sweden-set film, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, making it perfectly OK to brood over the egg nog tureen like an ace hacker with a preference for asymmetrical haircuts. The American version of the film stars Rooney Mara, who endured a 10-inch hair chop, ink-black dye job, and multiple piercings in order to become the iconic Lisbeth Salander character. The film's costume designer, Trish Summerville, further transformed the actress by dressing her in loose-knit separates like drapey tanks, shrunken leather jackets, and distressed denim, and according to WWD, all of these looks have gone into the making of the H&M collection (also designed by Summerville). From what we can tell thus far, every piece is covetable and perfect for layering into your existing wardrobe, whether you're already rocking an edgy look or not.

It's official, we're only A MONTH away from the premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 1, which means from here on out the fine folks over at Summit Entertainment will be rolling out all kinds of related photos, clips, and interviews leading up to the big day. To get things started, how about some photos of Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward's (Robert Pattinson) pre-wedding preparations, their honeymoon revelry, and, oh, some blood-soaked vamp and wolf action? Yeah, we're craving it, too.

We've been FUH-REAKING out over The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn—Part 1 wedding fashion ever since the first sneak peek was released at the MTV Movie Awards earlier this summer, and our excitement hasn't died down since! When we caught a glimpse of Bella, er, Kristen Stewart's wedding clip for the first time—WHEW BOY! Talk about absolutely ornate GORGEOUSNESS. We love her soft braided chignon pulled back into a loose bun accented by a silver rhinestone clip with blue flower detail. We loved it so much, in fact, we found out where to buy a replica of Bella's hair comb for only $28. *high five* But that wasn't the ONLY shimmering piece of jewelry we had our eye on during the trailer—we also wanna cop that RANGGGG.

Miss Emma Watson is starring in the upcoming film The Perks of Being a Wallflower, based on the beloved emo-tortured teen novel, and the first official photos have arrived! Co-starring super cute Logan Lerman and Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev, the film centers around an awkward teen in Pittsburgh in the early 1990s. Emma plays the love interest (obvs, duh, she's a Midnight Rose isn't she?), and judging by the on-set photos, her wardrobe is anything but wallflower-y. In fact, it's very '90s high school in the coolest way.

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...
