• With Sasquatch, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, and Glastonbury still on the summer festival docket, the question remains—what will you do with your hair? Here are five no-fuss ideas, including retro updos (like Whitney Port's) and natural waves. {Racked}

• To combat vanity sizing—did you know if you're a size 8/10 at Marc Jacobs, you're a size 000 at Chico's????? MyBestFit machines are being installed in malls across the country to provide shoppers with a report that details sizes from various stores. {The Cut}

• Shoe designer Raphael Young just debuted a rubber-soled high heel that minimizes "foot inflection" (aka heel pain) for $600 bucks. Sigh...the price of comfort. {Styleite}

Converse has designed a collection of dressy kicks—pink and white sequined, studded canvas, shiny patent leather—perfect for weddings and proms? :-/ {Glamour}

• Kudos to Macy's for replacing its 300 million clear petroleum-based plastic hangers with matte black ones made from recycled materials. {Styleite}

Morphine Lip Balm is a new mouth moisturizer infused with 4 percent benzocaine, which is the same numbing ingredient found in Orajel. Other than to freak out your lover boy/girl, we don't see the purpose. {Fashionista}

American Idol's stylists Soyon An and Miles Siggins recently revealed that they have a weekly $400 shopping budget allotted to each contestant. Sweeeeeet! {WWD}

Nicki Minaj already released her own lipstick, so it was only a matter of time before she'd be creating her own fragrance. The rapper revealed to Allure magazine that she'd like to release an eau de parfum that smells like "a sexy and confident woman" sometime this year. {Coco Perez}

• High-end home design, furniture and jewelry firm Tony Duquette has filed a lawsuit against J.Crew, claiming that their "Duquette Leopard Print Sweater" is trademark infringement. You be the judge. {Styleite}

• Tattoo laser removal treatment is working out nicely for Megan Fox. The actress' unwanted tat of Marilyn Monroe, which can be found on her right forearm, is slowly but surely fading away. {Coco Perez}

• In our latest installment of "girls gone brunette," Swedish actress Malin Akerman stepped out at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of her new film, The Bang Bang Club, in a hair hue much darker than her usual platinum strands. {People StyleWatch}

• A high school boy in Florida was kicked out of class for wearing high heels. The student's choice of footwear and the teacher's reaction to them are getting mixed reviews from other classmates. {Racked}

• After her concert at Shepherd's Bush Empire in London, crooner Adele stepped out with a headful of Shirley Temple-style curls. Hot. {Coco Perez}

• Kanye, dude, we love the women's blouse you wore at Coachella... so we found you a BUNCH more! You're welcome.

• PROM SEASON IS HERRREEE!!! Check out a girl whose prom dress is made out of Starburst wrappers that took six years to make and how to steal some supercute dress inspiration from last night's Prom premiere!

• What's up with the hot dudes this week? Prince Harry is hotter than Prince William (sorries), James Franco turns 33, and Mark Ronson wears tuxedo harem pants (and still looks HAWT).

• We LOVE spotting our favorite celebs on mag covers, but what if they were ALL WEARING THE SAME THING?? We're looking at you, Prada.

• This week a few celebs threw us for a loop, and we LIKED IT. Check out Olivia Palermo going folksy for a StyleCaster shoot, Jennifer Lopez baring her midriff after having TWINS (!!!), and a Rihanna pic from when she was a wee baby (so cute!).

• On the beauty front, Ginnifer Goodwin's haircut looks EERILY like Robyn's, Lauren Conrad launched her own beauty website, we found out how polishes get their wackjob names, and we watched boyfriends try to put makeup on their girlfriends (Oof).

• Um, hai, we love animals. This week we were obsessed with the adorbs Shiba Inu livestream puppies and (gasp!) animals made out of Louis Vuitton bags!!

• We checked in with Lady Gaga (per usual) and this week she was busy chatting about her creative process while lying a bathtub and turned into a motorcycle cyborg robot thing? Yep!

• Spring trends are in full force! This week we loved: midi skirts, fiery red hair, and... head thongs!

Have an AMAZING (and candy-filled!) weekend, fashion friends!! See you Monday!

Puppies!!!
Photo: Courtesy of the Shiba Inu Puppy Cam

OK, so you know how there are those websites that glorify SUPERCUTE dudes with SUPERCUTE animals (I'm looking at you, Cute Boys With Cats)? Well, sometimes when I'm mindlessly scrolling through these Tumblrs, I keep thinking, "Get this MAN BEAST out of my way and let me see the itsy-bitsy baby kiiiitttyyy behind him!!" Like, in most cases, the animals are CUTER than the dudes, but the dudes are all photo-hoggy and try to steal the shine. So then I'm all, "Why am I just not on a Cute Cats blog instead of Cute Boys WITH Cats blog?" So here at MTV Style, we've decided to cut through all that GARBAGE out there (aka humans) and get right to the point: cute freaking animals.

So, where else would we turn for the ultimate A-list, most-talked-about, cutest animals of all time? THE PUPPY CAMMMMMM, OBVI. These adorbs Shiba Inu babies were born on April 14 (awwww, only last Thursday!!), and three of the six pups were boys! Let me introduce to you the three gentlemen (all of their names start with "C" since they are the "C-Team." The first and second litters being the "A-Team" and the "B-Team," respectively): Chozen is the oldest, Chames, the second oldest, and the youngest is Chikara! Chikara is the BIGGEST BABY YET weighing in at 11 ounces. WHEWWW BOY. We like our dudes with a little extra SOMETHIN' SOMETHIN' around the waist, plus, the NY Times said it was "hip" to have a potbelly so it MUST BE. Way to be the coolest trendsetter ever, Chikara. We are ALL OVER THAT. We really dig the vibes of these doggy dudes because they can basically make ANYTHING look stylish and cool. Normal dogs sleeping? BORRINGGG. Chozen, Chames and Chikara do a GIANT dogpile on each other and do a total snugglefest before falling asleep. Talk about amazing. But ladies, beware, this is the third and FINAL litter from their mom (Hayyyy, Kika! Gurl, you are doing GREAT.) so bask in their ultimate cuteness while you still can! Disclaimer: We can't be responsible for your inconsolable sobbing once the puppy cam is turned to black FOR. EV. ER. so watch it nowwww!

• Welcome back, Angie! It's been a while since Angelina Jolie has been featured in a designer ad campaign, but word on the street is that the mother of six has been tapped as the new face of Louis Vuitton. {Coco Perez}

Converse's new "Half Stacks" sunglasses glow in the dark. Kinda awesome and as intrusive as you want stunna shades to look like at night. {Racked}

Alexander Wang is diversifying his portfolio. The fashion designer is adding lifestyle accessories (think: fancy notebooks) to his line. Just in time for back-to-school! {Fashionologie}

• Rocker Adam Lambert is experimenting with facial hair. The American Idol alum has been spotted around town wearing a perfectly groomed goatee. {People StyleWatch}

• For the first time, Minx is teaming up with celebrity nail stylists Lisa Logan (who has worked with Beyoncé, Katy Perry, and Madonna), and Marian Newman (who has worked with Kate Moss, Lady Gaga, and Victoria Beckham) to create eight pop art patterns. {Refinery 29}

• Hold the presses! Marlon Brando's 20-year-old grandson Tuki is a model for watch brand TechnoMarine (and he's posed in the past for Versace and L'Uomo Vogue)...and he's a cutie. {Huffington Post}

• Guys, listen to your elders. Especially this one: 78-year-old fashionista Lynn Dell waxes style knowledge like "We must dress everyday for the theatre of our lives." {Huffington Post}

• According to a new L'Oréal Paris survey 90 percent of women don't care about guys' opinions about their lipstick. So, fellas, we love ya but please keep your opinions about our blackberry lip lacquer to yourself. {Allure}

Clarissa Darling from 'Clarissa Explains It All.'
Photo: Blogue.us

Clarissa from the '90s hit Clarissa Explains It All proves that everything old becomes new again. Case in point: The character's eclectic style (oversize button-downs, patterned biker shorts, and Doc Martens) reminds us of the ensembles worn by practically every fashion plate at last weekend's Coachella. {Fab Sugar}

• U.S. Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir is slated to debut a line of Little Black Dresses exclusively at edressme.com on April 30. And, as expected, the frocks will be fashioned out of materials like ostrich feathers, sequins, and silk taffeta. Check out his first sketch! {SheFinds}

• Talk about A BAG. The Hermes Birkin bag recently auctioned off by Jane Birkin herself on eBay was sold for a whopping $162,840, with proceeds going to the British Red Cross. {Glamour}

• Designer Tom Ford was the sole fashion representative to make it on Time magazine's "Time 100" list. And after reading all of the sweet things Rita Wilson wrote about him for the list, we can totally see why. {Huffington Post}

• Bids for the black bra/white wide leg pants combo that Britney Spears wore in a Japanese candy commercial in 1999 are hovering around $5K. When it's all said and done, proceeds from the auction will benefit Japan. {The Cut}

• The rumor mill is predicting that Gwyneth Paltrow may be the next face of Coach. We can see it. {Refinery 29}

• Did Mark Zuckerberg read our "Denim Makeover" post? We think so! The Facebook CEO chucked his usual hoodie and ratty jeans for a collared shirt, tie, and sleek jeans (though he still wore tennis shoes!) during an interview with President Obama yesterday. {Huffington Post}

• A New York City podiatrist reveals the high-heel summer shoes that are actually good for your soles. {Fashion Pulse Daily}

Kristin Cavallari just unveiled the pretty, springtime sandal she designed for ShoeDazzle. The jute-heeled wedge called the "Bardot" goes on sale May 16, with all proceeds going to the Laguna Beach and The Hills-alum's charity OneKid OneWorld. {Coco Perez}

• Just in time for warmer temps, Bloomingdales.com just launched a plus-size style guide packed with tips on wearing maxi dresses, bold colors and shirt dresses. {Glamour}

• To celebrate their 160-year anniversary, Kiehl's is collaborating with a handful of celebs including Michael C. Hall and Chloe Sevigny, who designed unique labels for the company's limited-edition Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque. {Racked}

• Fashion designer Tom Ford is featured in a used car ad. That is all. {Racked}

• We (heart) this time of the year—when all of the new Havaianas flip-flop designs come out, like this super-vibrant Missoni-patterened pair. {Nitrolicious}

• The Best Packaging category for the 2011 FiFi Awards was swept by celebrities, including Halle Berry, Eva Longoria, Avril Lavigne, Mariah Carey and Fergie. Soooooooo, who do you think is going to snag the honor? {InStyle}

MAC's new Surf, Baby! collection (inspired by the beach, of course) features four new lipstick/glass shades, two new crushed metallic pigment sets, and teal and frosty yellow-white eyeliner pencils. Do we really have to wait until May 26 to score this stuff? {Fashionista}

• Rightfully so, Kate Middleton's wedding gown has been getting all of the attention. But do you ever wonder what she's going to wear during her honeymoon? Turns out Kate may be keeping her honeymoon threads on the moderately priced side—the princess-to-be was spotted buying a $105 dress at Warehouse in London. {Us}

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen are at it again. The designing sibs announced that they will be launching a line of optical frames under their Elizabeth and James label in June. {People StyleWatch}

• The last pants brand to compete for the gams of the jeggings customer is Pull-On Denim. The Brazilian company's denim are made with a stretchy waistband and no zipper. They wear like jeans, but go on like leggings. Confused? Us too. {Refinery 29}

• Designer/book collector Karl Lagerfeld is said to be coming out with a fragrance called Paper Passion that will smell like books. We suppose that's better than blood, semen, or bacon. {Styleite}

Abigail Breslin at the Hot Pink Party in New York on April 14.

• It's official. Abigail Breslin (aka Little Miss Sunshine) is a bonafide "young lady." She recently debuted a lighter hair hue that gives the 15-year-old a more mature look. But, she didn't ditch her rich brunette strands for fun--her colorist claims she went blonde for an upcoming movie role. {Us}

• Reports are now coming out that little-known designer Sophie Cranston of Libelula is definitely the designer tapped to create Kate Middleton's gown(s). But considering all of the dress drama and speculation to date, we can't be for sure-for sure until the princess-to-be walks down the aisle on April 29. {Huffington Post}

• How does someone look this poised, relaxed, and GORGEOUS at the 26-mile London marathon? Oh yeah, it's supermodel Agyness Deyn. Explains it. {Vogue UK}

Urban Outfitters contributes its recent decreases in store sales to bad weather and lackluster clothes. What do you think? {The Cut}

• Ask and you shall recieve. That's what one down-on-her-luck Twitterer learned after asking for shoe donations from LeAnn Rimes who tweeted earlier in the day that she'd just done some major spring cleaning and organizing of her shoe collection. Rimes shipped a handful of shoes for the struggling fan. So. Sweet. {People StyleWatch}

• WHOA! In a Teen Vogue interview, Nicole Richie admitted to owning north of 200 pairs of sunglasses. Well, then. We thought our 20 pairs was a lot. {Us}

Miley Cyrus shows off her latest tattoo in a Twitpic. The windcatcher body art under her arm is still growing on us. But, at least it's not a rhino or an icecream cone on her face. {Oh No They Didn't!}

• Florida state legislature is currently mulling over a bill that would make it illegal for teens to wear saggy pants in school. {Styelite}

Whitney Port at Lucky Shops LA on April 7.
Photo: Getty Images

• You know spring has sprung when celebs start switching up their hair hue all willy-nilly. Whitney Port went from blonde to ginger, and Sky Ferreira went from ombre blonde to streaky purple.

Katy Perry revealed her new ad campaign for ghd, a British hair care company, which was shot by David LaChapelle. We had a hard time picking our favorite Katy 'do.

Jessica Alba got Twitpic-happy in China for Diane von Furstenberg's Journey of a Dress exhibition. We thought the actress should give the world a tutorial on "how to look cute in smartphone pics, while in shoddy lighting."

• We obviously have a thing for brunet boys. Stephen Colletti from Laguna Beach and One Tree Hill (remember him?) made us happy in a random smizey-filled photo shoot. Manboy Adam Brody went collegiate-cool for the Scream 4 premiere. Cam Gigandet went platinum blonde, but we weren't fans. And, the Panic at the Disco duo (clad in tweed and ascots) showed how band dudes ought to dress.

The trailer for Monte Carlo, staring Leighton Meester, Selena Gomez and Katie Cassidy hit this week. We couldn't tell you the entire plot, but we did scope the cutest shawl-collar blazer, floral bubble skirt, and high-waisted mini-shorts. Priorities.

Tinsley Mortimer tamed her mane with a big girl headband braid (which, we showed you how to copy). On the other end of the spectrum, Karolina Kurkova, Camilla Belle, and Uma Thurman all let their strands frizz out ON PURPOSE.

• Just in time for spring, stylish bloggers showed us three different ways to rock a trench this season.

• We could spend hours in the magazine aisle. And this week we spotted Lady Gaga posing on Harper's Bazaar, Lauren Conrad smiling with her eyes on Allure, Kim Kardashian landing on Turkish Cosmopolitan, January Jones killing it on W magazine...twice, and Adele pretty-pouting on Rolling Stone.

• After waiting for YEARS, Ashley Tisdale tweeted about finally scoring her very first Jane Birkin bag—a cobalt blue beauty that cost within the range of $9k-$50k. We asked what the hubbub was all about.

Coachella is this weekend (can we get a what-what?!), and Whitney Port was so kind as to put together a handy-dandy what-to-wear guide for the festivities. Thanks, Whit.

• Several celebs "brightened" our week. Jessica Lowndes, Emma Stone, and Jessie J. swiped the boldest, most shocking shade of pink they could find onto their lips. Meanwhile, Robyn, Sophia Bush, and Kate Voegele snuck a dash of highlighter neon into their ensembles. Mmrowwww.

• The sneaker flip-flop hybrid discussion had to happen. It just had to.

Justin Bieber's famous friends (oh, nobody important...just DOLCE & GABBANA) hosted a bash for the boy phenom to thank him for wearing mostly D&G out and about. The Bieb's appropriately showed up to the party in D&G eyeglasses.

Khloé Kardashian, Emma Roberts, and Lucy Hale showed off their pretty pumps and pedicures.

• We thought junderpants (aka jegging/underpants) was about as far as we could go with the clothing hybrids until we saw a College Humor video via Refinery29. Helllloooo, tackets, stileakers, and stockis. And, goodbye.

Donatella Versace wasn't convinced that a celebrity designer could get their creative juices flowing enough to put together a worthwhile collection. We tried to disprove her theory.

Rock it out this weekend, ladies and gents. We'll see you bright and early on Monday.
