Sometimes when we're surfin' the web, we stumble upon things that are SO magical. Like, things so good, you're 100% sure that the stars have aligned in your favor, and you can't believe how happy you are to be alive right in this very instant. We felt that way when we were perusing the ol' Instagram and peeped a picture on Whitney Eve's feed. (You know, our City girl Whitney Port's clothing line.) Basically, it said that the KILLER, seamless yellow bandage dress Rihanna was wearing a couple days ago was by, you guessed it, Whitney Eve! Our hearts basically exploded at this news because 1.) We love Rihanna, 2.) We love Whitney, and 3.) We love that Rihanna is sporting Whitney. 😀
Sure, we've been finding ways to have THE most perfect prom all week long, but have you ever wondered how some of your favorite celebs celebrated their big night out? Well, we certainly have, and since we work at MTV (NBD), we thought we'd find out how some of our biggest stars stacked up. We rounded up prom pics from Jersey Shore, The Hills, Laguna Beach, Awkward., and TRL cast members, and, OMG, we are so excited to share them with you. Warning: Lots of awesomeness ahead.
NICOLE 'SNOOKI' POLIZZI FROM 'JERSEY SHORE'
Our girl Jersey Shore girl Snooki didn't look so much different back in the day. She definitely had the "T" of "GTL" on lock, and, um, that up-do with the tendrils cascading down the side? SO mid-2000s. She went for the classic smoky eye and nude lip look paired with a strapless teal dress, which she said she swiped up from JC Penney. Not bad, Ms. Polizzi!
The friendzone: it's a real thing, you guys. And while we certainly can't speak for all the dudes and ladies out there, this platonic, perpetual side-hug relationship status is not usually a desirable place to be. At least that's how it is for Toby Miller, the constantly friendzoned protagonist in the new flick Ladies Man: A MADE Movie. Based on the namesake MTV series that helps normal kids achieve their goals of being fashion designers, sports stars, and more with the help of a pro coach, this fictional feature-length special premieres TONIGHT on MTV at 9/8c. So will Toby finally shake his brotherly persona and be transformed into a stud (or, as he so eloquently puts it, "a man whore")? We'll have to tune in to find out! But before all that goes down tonight, we've got a couple of fashion tips right now to help Toby get a head start in his escape out of the friend zone. Ready, set, go!

Ever since we peeped Kristin Cavallari's debut Chinese Laundry shoe collection last winter, we've been obsessed with her simply gorgeous platform pumps, embellished flats, and killer booties. Not only are her prices totally on point, but we could totally see sporting her shoes with everything in our wardrobe. (Like, literally her nude pumps would match every single ensemble we own.) Lucky for us, the ex-Hillsie is on the heels (heh) of releasing her spring line, and we got to talk to her ALL about it—in person—for all y'all to see.
Whitney Port's Disney Untold Treasures By Whitney Eve lookbook.
We really missed Whitney Port at New York Fall 2013 Fashion Week this past February. We look forward to her runway show each season, and when we found out that she wouldn't be showing, we had a major sadface moment. Our sadness was unwarranted, however, as Whitney was hard at work on a new collection without us even knowing. The designer teamed up with Disney for the Untold Treasures by Whitney Eve collection for Fall 2013, and now you can check out the lookbook. In a statement at the beginning of the lookbook, Whitney explains her inspiration for the collection, saying "ever since I was a child I have been enthralled by The Little Mermaid." Whitney goes on to explain that she was her prints were inspired by and based "in the mythical beauty and ethereal quality of Ariel, the picturesque aquatic scenes, and the dreamy depths of the sea" in the animated film. Whitney created a collection of bright, rich blues and greens, fluid shapes, and surprising textures that pulls us out of our spring fever and plunks us down into the luxurious feeling of fall, with a definite under the sea vibe happening throughout.
When two of our most favorite things (MTV and style, duh) mix in the most beautiful of ways, we can't HELP but be ecstatic. Last night our girl Snooki Instagrammed a pic of herself sporting an MTV tank top with the caption "#RetroMTV shirt <3," and we just about died. A current MTV star wearing a retro MTV logo? It's all too much for our emotionless hearts to handle. The Snooki & JWOWW star decided to stick with an all-American MTV theme on a heather gray tank (even though the old logo was ever-changing), and she finished the look with round, animal print sunnies, denim cut-off short, and high pony. Perf!
Not to be weird, but we're kiiind of Lauren Conrad hair experts. Over the past couple years, we followed the former Hills star as she dyed her strands from blue to green to everything in-between, and just today Lauren debuted bright pink locks! Judging by her Instagram, it looks like she and a friend traveled to India or Nepal for the annual Holi Festival (aka the festival of colors), which is celebrated by throwing colored water or powder at each other. It looks like LC got some direct hits as the party went down because she posted a pic of her face completely covered in green and red paint. As it turns out, the paint didn't wash out as planned (oops!), and LC was accidentally left with bright pink strands. She Instagrammed a photo of her hair with the caption, "So apparently it doesn't wash out... Looks like I'm sporting pink locks for the rest of this trip."

OK, y'all—remember when we spotted Kristin Cavallari wearing Paper Crown by Lauren Conrad in Splash magazine last week? We didn't even know where to BEGIN on this situation. Had the former Laguna Beach foes officially made up? Or was K Cav just showing serious support for her Laguna co-star? Are they total besties now? Did she even know she was wearing a piece by LC? Well, our prayers were answered, and the stylist from the shoot, Eric Himel, reached out to give us all the details on what went down that day. Peep it after the jump below!

Friends, the time has finally come--Kristin Cavallari has launched her first-ever jewelry collection! Last fall, the former Hills girl announced that she'd be working with Glamboutique and business partner Pascal Mouawad (who helped launch Nicole Richie's House of Harlow label) to create a line of necklaces, rings, bracelets and earrings that are all under $100. Lucky for us, her collection is officially available to purchase on the internet, so now we all can snatch up our favorite (and affordable!) K Cav-designed goodies. Some of our favorite pieces include the Pyramidia Layered Necklace ($35), which features three, gold-plated chains with a circle pendant, pyramid studs, and light blue beads. We're also OBSESSED with her punky-yet-girly Safety Pin Earrings ($15) that come in solid gold, lavender, light pink and sky blue. The best part is that she also created a super cool Safety Pin Necklace ($22) to match.
A still from "Mac Miller And The Most Dope Family."
On this week's Mac Miller And The Most Dope Family, Mac Miller and his boys venture out on the high seas for a group fishing trip, thus fulfilling one of our favorite oddities of celebrity culture: famous people doing totally regular things. Before the full episode premieres tomorrow night at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT, we have a sneak peek of Mac and his crew hitting up California's Fishermen's Spot for their boating duds. Personally, we're pretty into the whitewater crewneck Miller is already wearing, but we'll also never turn down an excuse to go shopping. As the dudes rifle through rip-stop ponchos and utility vest with thousands of pockets for baits and tackles, Mac Miller poses a question we often ask ourselves: What would Kanye wear?
