Charlize Theron's new movie Young Adult opens this weekend, and we can't wait to see it. The movie poster alone of Miss Theron wearing hot pink sweatpants, a Kermit-green hoodie, and Hello Kitty T-shirt accessorized with a quilted pink bag and ubiquitous Pomeranian is hilarious and says so much about what this movie has in store for us. While the tagline "Everyone gets old, not everyone grows up," seems fitting for the movie, we happen to think the lovely Oscar winner is drinking from the fountain of youth. We don't need to speculate about the age of this bishness because, really, who cares in the end, and also, we want to look just like this whenever we get to whatever age this is. At the premiere of the movie, Charlize invoked her inner goddess and wore a sassy Stella McCartney number, perfect barely there makeup, simple hair, and a confident grin. She's had a busy week promoting the movie and had a few choice words to say about women in her age group who actually wear Hello Kitty T-shirts, namely that she doesn't get it...at ALL.

rooney mara cutout dresses

It's the biggest movie of the END of the year with crazy hype, legions of fans, and the titular debut of a relatively new actress in the title role. Yes, we're talking about The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which stars Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander, aka the girl...with the dragon tattoo (obvs). This whole edgy franchise with music by Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor (and a theme song featuring MTV Style fave Karen O), is set to open here in the U.S. on Dec. 21. The film has already had premieres in Stockholm, London, and New York, and Miss Mara has stayed true to the ferocity of her character by choosing red carpet outfits that are just as fierce. We're talking designer dresses (and PANTSUITS!) with large swaths of fabric missing. Think: The Girl With the Cutout Taboo. (Yes, I went there.) But, really, we're totally diggin' each and every one of these complementary red carpet choices, so let's take a deeper look shall we?

Miley Cyrus wears two gold dresses in one weekend.

Usually when we drop a "Who Wore It Better?", we call out to you, MTV Style readers, for preferential guidance by pitting two celebs clad in super similar outfits (or even the very same piece) against each other for our own enjoyment. This edition is a little different. We're narrowing our focus slightly with this go-around, strapping gloves onto actress/songstress/music royalty Miley Cyrus against...HERSELF! Miley had a busy weekend hitting up two inspirational soirees in a pair of gold/nude floor-length gowns. Sure, she styles them differently, but at the end of the day, these long flowy frocks are pretty undeniably sims.

Fergie, Abigail Breslin, Lea Michele New Year's Eve movie

We're officially in the whirlwind that is The Holiday Season™. If you're anything like us, before we finish our candy canes or sip that last drop of eggnog, we inevitably wake up and realize it's practically New Year's Eve and—OMG—we have nothing to wear. Luckily, this year we have the filmNew Year's Eve to help us get in the spirit early. Not only does it encapsulate several different NYE scenarios, it's opening early enough to inspire us to be prepared this year, and we can start by taking cues from the dresses worn to the film's red carpet premiere. We thought Fergie, Abigail Breslin, and Lea Michele brought their best sparkle-power with three very different NYE dresses guaranteed to wow at any party. Problem is, from the short and bodycon to the fuller and longer, we can't decide which silhouette we'd rather wear. Also, what will our dude look like? Well, that's easy, something akin to either Darren Criss, Zac Efron, or Harry Shum Jr., of course.

It's been quite a year for the young cast of the hit TV show Glee. From their headline-making storylines involving teen bullying to their collective fashion debut on the pages of Vogue magazine (not to mention cast shakeups, new additions to New Directions, and rumors involving what will happen when some characters graduate), it's been one heck of a season thus far. We here at MTV Style always get excited when we spot a "Glee-ite" on the red carpet too, especially when it's for a good cause. Cast members Darren Criss, Dianna Agron, and Kevin McHale recently attended the Trevor Live event benefitting theThe Trevor Project, an organization that provides crisis intervention for LGBTQ youth. Aside from stepping out in their Sunday best for an important cause, the trio took some major fashion risks too.

The British Fashion Awards brought some serious fashion game to London last night. It's a well-known FACT that London-town is all about killer street style, but it's also about serious avant-garde style on the red carpet (or, in this case, blue carpet) too. Londoners seem to have NO FEAR when it comes to being photographed in the most outlandish of fash-madness. It's like they wear eight-inch platforms while making a roast chicken in the kitchen or slouch around on Saturday mornings in robes lined in marabou or vampire teeth like it's totally normie and expected where they come from. (It's nothing short of awe-inspiring, and we curtsy to it!) The high priestess of this sort of madcap macabre style-slaying is easily Daphne Guinness (aka she of the pigeon blood-inspired makeup collection). She totally brought it to the BFAs (Britain's equivalent to the CFDAs), as did '90s grunge model Kristen McMenamy and lovely style blogger Susie Bubble. I mean, look at these dresses, y'all. They're AMAZE and completely OUT THERE. Don't you wish more of our celebs stateside would rock out in this kind of fashionable frippery?

Elle Fanning at the 2011 Children of Chernobyl's Children at Heart gala and Chloë Moretz at the "Hugo" premiere on Nov. 21, 2011, in New York City.

It could just be us, but it seems like Chloë Moretz and Elle Fanning could be best pals. Aside from being talented (and precocious) young actresses, they're both only a year apart in age (Chloë is 14, Elle is 13), and they vaguely look like sisters. We're also basing our BFF assessment on the fact that they recently showed up to two different events wearing similar outfits. At a Children of Chernobyl charity event, Elle wore a demure and age-appropriate pale pink dress cinched with pink bows near the waist. Miss Moretz also wore bows to the premiere of her new film Hugo. Her neutral Dolce & Gabbana ballerina dress featured a whole row of flattened bows down the bodice. Both dresses featured bare arms, too, and both ladies wore their blonde hair parted down the middle. But, seriously, why aren't Elle and Chloë hanging out braiding friendship bracelets right now?

Emma Watson

Miss Emma Watson has turned into quite the ingenue. After graduating (with HONORS) from the Harry Potter movies and enrolling in college here in the U.S., the former Hermione Granger has made a new name for herself as a bona fide fashion STAH. Not only has she landed multiple coveted magazine covers like Vogue and British Elle, she's fronted a fragrance campaign for Lancôme's Trésor Midnight Rose perfume and has been working on many a new movie. Her major role in the upcoming The Perks of Being a Wallflower is getting a lot of buzz, but we'll see her in a supporting role first in the upcoming My Week With Marilyn, in which she plays a wardrobe assistant (love it already). No stranger to the fashionable glare of the red carpet bulbs, Miss Watson turned it out in true class-act style for the premiere of Marilyn and toted the COOLEST Perspex leopard clutch.

Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, and Kaylee Defer help "Gossip Girl" celebrate 100 episodes.

Can you believe that Gossip Girl is already celebrating 100 episodes? It seems like just yesterday we were tuning in to the relatively newly renamed CW network to give this cast of unknowns (*achem* extremely good-looking and well-dressed unknowns) a chance. It wasn't long before Blake Lively's Serena van der Woodsen and Leighton Meester's Blair Waldorf and the rest of the Upper East Side's young elite had captured our hearts, attention, and Wednesday nights. Since then, the series has experienced cameos, character appearances and banishments, and more formal parties than you can shake a stick at. The series has become a hot bed for contemporary fashion and as the years have gone on, stylistas have tuned in at growing numbers, like moths to a flame. Naturally, a celebration of the storied fash-forward show would, of course, yield a gang of exquisitely wardrobed attendees.

We look forward to each year's American Music Awards as a place where breath-taking and outrageous fashions mix, mingle, and outright COLLIDE, and tonight's show was no disappointment. From the bubblegum pink-ness of Katy Perry to the many outfit changes of Justin Bieber, stars turned it OUT in both their flashiest and finest. With so many ladies and gents bringing their fashion A-game, repping so many styles, it's never easy to pick just one favorite, so we picked our top TEN looks of the night.

Taylor Swift cleaned UP tonight, raking in an armful of awards including the top honor, Artist of the Year. She also looked drop-dead and way mature, might we add, in this champagne-colored Reem Acra column gown. True to Swift's signature style, it was decked out in sequins.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
