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.

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.
Elizabeth Banks in costume as Effie Trinket in "The Hunger Games."
In the words of Effie Trinket (played by the zhamazing Elizabeth Banks), "Happy Hunger Games!!!" Yes, it is finally game day, aka release day for the much-anticipated, completely awesome film adaptation of The Hunger Games book series. If you didn't catch a midnight showing or are waiting to go this weekend, all we can say is it was totally worth the wait. Also, we're obsessed with anything regarding the movie, such as Hunger Games accessories and over-the-top Effie Trinket nails. We were perusing ElizabethBanks.com recently, which is fantastic BTW, and came across this nail post featuring Effie's INSANE nail tips, which got us thinking...you guys, is it time to EFF up our nail game?

Does Daniel Radcliffe never stop?? It feels like this guy JUST finished promoting the release of his period thriller The Woman In Black. Now, he's already in hair and makeup (and spiffy collegiate wardrobe) for a new project, playing poet Allen Ginsberg in indie film Kill Your Darlings. Charged with portraying one of the founding fathers of the Beat Generation, Daniel Radcliffe underwent a pretty serious style transformation to better fill these roomy oxfords.

As temperatures rise and the layers slowing start peeling off, it becomes increasingly more clear that SWIMSUIT SEASON is upon us. There are a lot of great styles out there, but we're really feeling this bright bikini that teen queen Selena Gomez has been seen sporting while filming Spring Breakers in Florida. Whether you've already had your spring break or not, there are still a lot of warm weather months to come and a lot more sand-frolicking and belly-flopping to be done. What better way to usher in the days of sun worshipping than with a new suit?
