Let's face it. This time of year it's impossible not to get caught up in all of the glorious hype surrounding prom. Whether you're a freshman going with a hot upperclassman or dancing the night away with a big group of girlfriends at your last dance, prom is nostalgic and wonderful and overrated all at the same time. And if you're like me, where your senior prom was in an events center that held a livestock show a few hours before (yes, it still smelled like cattle and hayfeed), the lights kept brightly on the whole time and the "DJ" "spun" from an iPod set up, prom certainly was a night to remember. (Shout out to my Nebraska youth!) But no matter, because luckily, network television always delivers an excellent prom night with dramatic king and queen announcements, outrageous themes and a pretty sparkling bow on the high school coming-of-age sitcom. We've sorted through the gowns and corsages of our favorite TV proms EVER, including the glory days of The WB line-up (oh yeah, we went there). Get ready to relive it all.
Rachel and Finn win Prom Queen and King at the dinosaur-themed prom in 'Glee.'

We don't have to go too far back in time (literally) to remember the prom of Glee's McKinley high school, but we do have to go back several million years to embrace Brittany's "Dinosaurs" theme. Although fossilization and spiked punch don't seem to go hand in hand, the Cheerio cheerleader-turned-class president selects the theme and institutes a "no hair gel" ban, targeting dear Blaine who has never made a public appearance without slathering his normally frizzy fro with product. In protest, Kurt, Blaine and Rachel decide to throw an anti-prom, but gathering in a damp and dirty motel with nothing to do and no good Bravo TV to watch the crew quickly turns around and heads to the Mesozoic era with the rest of the kids. Of course what's a dinosaur themed prom without some modern day pop song performances? The girls perform the Selena Gomez anthem "Love You Like A Love Song" while the boys croon 1D's "What Makes You Beautiful." We conclude with a "Take My Breath Away" ballad as Finnchel (Finn + Rachel) take the title of prom king and queen and ride off into a Brontosaurus-filled sunset.
Demi Lovato matched her nails to her outfit on "Jimmy Kimmel Live."

We've seen Demi Lovato show her love of heavy metal hardware from (literally) head to toe, but for her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, she took it to the next level with a jacket printed with trompe l'oeil studs and matching spiked nails. Fresh off revealing her very bare DEMI album art, Demi paid Kimmel and his Los Angeles studios a vist to chat about a grip of topics, from her X Factor experience, how she broke her fibula, and what to expect from her new album.
Selena Gomez on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon."

Give up a lil' round of applause for our girl Selena Gomez, y'all! Not only is she doing diligent promotion for Spring Breakers, hitting the late night circuit extra-hard—Late Show with David Letterman on Monday night to Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night—but she's also BRINGING it with the high fashion looks for all of her appearances. Letterman was a little more done-up with black, lace, sequins and Emilio Pucci, but for Fallon and its later air-time and younger-skewing audience, Selly let her hair done (literally!) and shimmied into a beautiful Antonio Berardi cocktail dress.

Throughout this Spring Breakers press tour, Selena Gomez has been knocking dead high fashion look after look. Whether it's belly-baring cut outs or sequin-laden minis, Sel has a knack for serving designer ensembles that are both chic and age-appropriate (the girl IS 20 now, after all). Her latest stop on the SB press fashion wagon? An appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman in sweet-but-sassy Emilio Pucci.
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?
If you're a child of the '90s, cartoons and Nickelodeon went hand-in-hand like Lisa Frank and Trapper Keepers. Not to get all dramatic, but, like, those shows kiiind of shaped who we are today. We couldn't WAIT to plop down in front of the TV to hang out with some of our funny friends (hi, Skeeter from Doug and Chuckie Finster from Rugrats!) and have a GRAND ol' time. Since most our favorite shows are no longer on air (*sniff sniff*), we thought we'd bring 'em back to life the best way we know how--through nail art! We rounded up our fave Nick-inspired manicures, so check 'em out below.
We love this GORGE homage to Angelica, Chuckie and Tommy from Rugrats! Each character was meticulously hand-painted on each finger in the exact same illustration style from the show. Honestly, with all those layers of colors and attention to detail this probably took FOREVS to do, but we think it was totally worth it. *claps*
Talk about a Throwback Thursday! Last night, Lauren Conrad posted this picture of some vaguely familiar-looking distressed capri jeans to her Instagram with the caption, "Cleaning out my closet and I found the pair of jeans I wore to move into my first apartment. How did I think these were OK?" Oh, RIGHT. We remember this LC denim moment because WE WERE THERE. Sort of. We watched it all play out on the series premiere episode of The Hills! It's all taking us to really warm and fuzzy places where visions of Juicy Couture terrycloth sweatsuits, Louis Vuitton monogram handbags, and Von Dutch trucker hats dance in our heads.
Justin Bieber behind-the-scenes at "Saturday Night Live."

Judging from the constant activity on the #BieberOnSNL trending topic, we're not the only ones SUPER excited for Justin Bieber's doubled-up Saturday Night Live stint as host AND musical guest tomorrow night. It's not Bieber's first go-around at Studio 8H. Justin was the musical guest for Tina Fey's episode in 2010 (back when he was still rocking his signature "Bieber Hair"!!!) but was game enough to squeeze into a sketch of his own. Tomorrow night, though, The Biebs is putting on his big-boy pants (most likely of the sagging variety) for his first time hosting the whooooole show. Haven't reached critical mass of dizzying excitement yet? Maybe these behind-the-scenes snaps of Justin in swaggy leather jackets from his bumper photoshoot and rehearsals will send you over the edge.
Just a fraction of Frank's trucker hats from the "30 Rock" series' seven seasons.
Just moments ago, NBC aired the series finale episode of 30 Rock. The wound is still fresh, and we're still VERY much in full mourning of the Tina Fey television masterpiece. With tears in our eyes, we're kissing and turning over framed desktop pictures of Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin) and erasing Dr. Spaceman's (Chris Parnell) number from our phones. Along with the belly laughs, the unforgettable characters, and single-handedly giving us the green light to emphatically call our friends, family, and co-workers "nerds," 30 Rock has supplied us with a wealth of memorable fashion moments, from Liz Lemon's Brooklyn Without Limits jeans to her Princess Leia wedding dress. How could we ever forget Tracy Jordan's (Tracy Morgan) EGOT necklace? Or *sniffle* Kenneth Parcell's (Jack McBrayer) page uniform? Or that time Jenna Maroney (Jane Krakowski) was pitted against Miss Piggy for a "Who Wore It Better"? If we had to pick the ONE fashion element of the show we'll miss most, though, it would definitely, absolutely, HANDS DOWN be Frank Rossitano/Judah Friedlander's signature trucker hats.
Katy Perry sports a new look on "The Ellen Degeneres Show."

Katy Perry ranks among a very special legion of pop stars who change up their looks at BREAK-NECK speed. From Uncle Sam chic to Roy Lichtenstein latex to straight-up classic glamour, Katy's propensity for sartorial shape-shifting is nothing new. Or at least, it shouldn't be? Somehow, though, she manages to shock with each new outfit, especially this handlebar mustached game show host style transformation she underwent for her pal Ellen DeGeneres's birthday.
