How does she do it?
Wow. Is it just me or was last night's Teen Wolf, like, extremely frightening? Granted, I don't rush out to see scary movies because I, uh, don't enjoy feeling scared, but since I watch Teen Wolf for
the shirtless locker room scenes my job, I endured the entire thing. Amid all the blood and razor-sharp teeth was something light and something patterned—I'm talking, of course, about Lydia's outfit.
Are you ready to see Snooki and JWoww back on your TVs? While their eponymous show is not back yet, they will back on your screen soon on an episode of Project Runway: All Stars. The duo will act as guest judges on the show, so we figured we'd take a look back at some of the fashions they may favor, judging wise. There's no word yet on what the challenge was for the contestants, but chances are if they included leopard print or one-sleeve dresses, Snooki and JWoww would vote to keep 'em. Check out a few of the styles they're well-versed in below!

Snooki and JWoww have a widely documented love of leopard print. (And we have a widely documented love of their love of leopard print. Meta!)

Arianators, how you doing? Did you enjoy Total Ariana Live? How's your pulse after hearing "Break Free" for the first time and finding out Ariana Grande will be performing at the 2014 VMAs? Now that we're sure you're OK physically, can we talk about how much you loved Ariana's modern monochrome outfit?
The singer traded her mod performance wear for a blank tank top, flouncy white skirt, and–most surprising–black heels. Too hot for boots, eh, Ari? Her hair was in its trademark half-up/half-down 'do and looked, despite the unrelenting humidity in New York, totally sleek. It swayed with her as she and her dancers had a dance party for the premiere of "Break Free," and made me totally jealous–my hair has been tied back as tightly as possible for days.
'TRL' and the 2000s in a nutshell.

Today is the day! Are you ready for Total Ariana Live tonight at 7 p.m. on MTV? We definitely are. Not only is there going to be a stripped-down version of "Problem" (which I haven't been able to get out of my head all summer FYI), we'll also hear a brand new song from the pint-size powerhouse: "Break Free." What's more is that we're totally stoked about TRL coming back! (Or this ~Ariana~ version of it, at least.) You know TRL, the decade-long mainstay that invited the biggest celebrities and performers straight into your living room? Years before Belieber Fever swept the nation or 5 Seconds of Summer penned their ode to skivvies, and when Miley was living a double life as Hannah Montana.
Because we're feeling nostalgic, we gathered a collection of photos from some of our favorite style moments (most of these are from the Carson Daly years, because he's the prince of TRL).

While Justin and Britney might have pioneered the look, they weren't the only couple's matching. Jay Z and Beyonce were double-denim mirror images of each other years before they actually became a couple. Sometimes you're just on the same wavelength, you know? Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey also wore matching black tees and leather pants.

So, if you watched the new episode of Teen Wolf on Monday, you know there's a new baddie in town. Actually, there are multiple baddies and they go by the name of Berserkers. They may have only made a brief appearance so far, but these dudes are obviously tough. Barbara Vazquez, Teen Wolf's costume designer, broke down their costumes for us, which include hand-painted, blood-splattered pants. The details, you guys—they're cray.
Cop Lydia's H&M dress for yourself!
Lydia Martin hates pants and loves florals. While you may have suspected that if you've ever seen Teen Wolf, it was confirmed by Holland Roden (who plays Lydia) and Teen Wolf's costume designer Barbara Vazquez when we spoke to them earlier this season. With that in mind, how quintessentially Lydia was her outfit on last night's episode? A floral dress? It doesn't get more LM than that, TBH. The best part of her look? You can get it for yourself for under $25.
The wait is over, Teen Wolf fam. After three long months of hiatus, we've finally entered season four and another run of supernatural drama from the Beacon Hills crew. We've been treated to new characters, along with the unexpected return of familiar faces, and of COURSE, the new season also means a shiny new wardrobe!
We stopped by the TW set while they were shooting season four and were lucky enough to chat with costume designer Barbara Vazquez, who gave us a TON of deets on the characters' wares this cycle, including/especially how they get Tyler Posey's arms to look ~sooooooo good~.
Steal Malia's style for yourself.
In case you somehow missed the news, let me be the first to break it to you: Teen Wolf is back, y'all! Our fave werewolves, banshee, kitsune, and regular ol' human (<3 Stiles <3) returned to us last night in a big way. There is also a werecoyote in the mix now—that's right, Malia (Shelley Hennig) from season three is officially part of the ~crew~.
The gang is down in Mexico and Malia—who, like, just became a human—is dressed the most appropriately for the weather in a long-sleeved shirt and American-flag-print shorts. What's that? You would love to know where those shorts are from, considering 4th of July is next week? We gotchu.
I’ve been crushing on Jenn Rogien for years. As the costume designer for HBO’s Girls and Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black, it was love at first sight (of Lena Dunham in a mesh shirt, that is). And as a costume designer myself, I can’t help admiring someone who seems both effortlessly glamorous and hilariously down-to-earth—particularly since I know firsthand that the job is often more about waiting in line at dusty thrift stores than wearing designer shoes to red carpet events. So when I was presented with the opportunity to chat with her about the second season of OITNB (just released on Netflix), I jumped at it.
Spoiler alert: Jenn Rogien is awesome. About halfway through the interview, I started fangirling, garbling my words, and blurted, “I’m sorry, I’m just really nervous right now.” She made a joke about it, laughed, and then apologized for the periodic squawking noises from her phone—as she was standing in a Burlington Coat Factory mid-interview, shopping for season three, being interrupted by store loudspeaker announcements asking for additional cashiers to come to the register.
She has one of the coolest jobs on the planet and a terrific sense of humor about an awkward moment. Crush complete. Let’s meet Jenn Rogien.
If you're a fan of Orange Is the New Black, then your past week has probably been spent binge-watching season two. For those of you who prefer to watch the Netflix drama at a more leisurely pace (huh?), I promise not to spoil the heartbreakingly beautiful plotlines that lie ahead of you. I will simply say this: You are in for a treat.
OITNB's greatest strength is its ability to make viewers feel for each individual character through a mixture of subtle moments and slowly revealed backstories—much the way you get to know people in real life. And some of those best moments just so happen to center around beauty and fashion.
It might seem like a superficial approach to a supposedly gritty television show, but the scenes where Sophia (Laverne Cox) pampers her salon "patrons" or Lorna (Yael Stone) spends her mornings getting pretty only add to the complex nature of these characters. Because even though they throw pies and crack ribs in the courtyard, they can still remember the excitement of trying on a beautiful new dress. And THAT'S how you write female characters, my friends.
I went ahead and took note of all the amazing style and beauty moments I noticed while watching season two to either get you excited for your remaining episodes or to tide you over until season three. *SIGH* Is it 2015 yet?
