Jimmy Fallon, Zac Efron, Seth Rogen

Last night, Seth Rogen was a guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and—because they're Neighbors costars and IRL bros—Zac Efron stopped by. But he didn't just casually pop in to say hello and take off his shirt, like he does. In fact, you may not even recognize him—not only because he was wearing more clothes than usual, but also because he looked a bit like Gabriella from High School Musical (rather than, y'know, Troy).

The three dudes all dressed up as "Turn Down for What"-singing, Venti Soy Dolce Creme Frappuccino-sipping teen girls for a skit called "Ew!" But the best part wasn't the James Franco zings, or the awkward twerking, OR the realization that Seth Rogen can really pull off a mean pink lip.

Faking It

Last week when we spoke to Faking It's costume designer Mandi Lane, she gave us a ~tip~ to keep an eye out for the cream sweater that Amy wears in the show's third episode. That episode was last night and—OMG—what a sweater—nay, outfit it was. The essential elements are an Irish fisherman sweater, a pair of loose and distressed jeans, and—the clincher—suspenders. Even though it's almost warm in New York, I'm desperate to cop this look and wear it immediately. It is 100%, as Mandi described it, "effortlessly cool."

In case you haven't been keeping up with Faking It, let me just tell you, you're missing out. (The good news is: There have only been two episodes so far, so you can catch up in under an hour.) One of our favorite elements from the show is (duh) the wardrobe—we can imagine students actually wearing these clothes IRL, and you get a great sense of each character's personality through their outfits. We talked to Mandi Line, the show's costume designer, about the characters' styles, dressing high school students, and how styling Faking It is different from Pretty Little Liars (yep, she's responsible for the clothes on that show, too).

MTV STYLE: How would you describe Amy and Karma's wardrobes? How do their styles differ?

MANDI LINE: Karma (Katie Stevens) is modern, flirty, and boho. She comes from a hippie background, so she wears eclectic pieces, but she also wants to be popular, so she pairs them with modern pieces for an overall feminine feel.

MTV's new series Faking It debuted last night and—guess what?—it's really good! A new show means new characters to meet and, more important, more wardrobes to discuss. As with many MTV shows (see: Teen Wolf), the fashion choices seem totally appropriate for high schoolers, and we are very excited to see what Karma, Amy, Shane, and Liam wear in the rest of the episodes.

I'm getting ahead of myself, though—let's talk about the pilot's most fashionable moments.

We knew we'd like this show when it opened with a shot from within a closet. Hi, we like closets and the things that go in them. Karma (Katie Stevens), one of the two lead characters, then asks her best friend/fake girlfriend, Amy (Rita Volk), how blind people get dressed, which is never really resolved.

Drake

Who is this guy?

In case you were worried that Drake's comedic chops were a one-time fluke when he hosted Saturday Night Live, I guess you've never seen Degrassi. JK, I guess you haven't yet watched Drake on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, where he took to the streets in a disguise to see what people really think about Drake.

While I'm not fully convinced he needed a disguise—I mean, none of these people recognized his voice, which is pretty distinct—he wore one that consisted of a dark chestnut version of Justin Bieber's original floppy hair and a fluffy beard. For extra diversion he added some glasses and a multi-colored striped shirt, which totally transformed him from Drake to an i-banker with bad eyesight. Or one who pretends as much so he can wear glasses with thick frames.

If you're anything like me, your Saturday-night footwear is limited to, like, boots or slippers. Pharrell, it is clear, is not anything like me. I mean, he performed on Saturday Night Live last night in these bad boys. What are they, you ask? Oh, just a pair of customized Swarovski crystal Stan Smith sneakers, NBD. Looks like partnering with Adidas has its perks, eh?

Flanked by a group of string musicians, Skateboard P performed "Marilyn Monroe" wearing the shoes, a black three-stripe jacket, and his green Vivienne Westwood Buffalo hat. Will the shoes become a full-time piece of P's look, like the jacket and the hat? Will he be able to get anything he wants customized with crystals from now on? These shoes raise a lot of questions.

Seinfeld

Hey readers, here's another round of Fashion Fanfic. In this installment of fantasy celebrity conversations, we find Jerry Seinfeld, along with the rest of the Seinfeld crew (Jason Alexander, Michael Richards, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus), at the iconic Tom's Restaurant discussing exactly what is the deal with "normcore" and how a fashion movement about nothing is kind of something. Here's how we think it went down.

Jerry sat down at his usual booth at Monk's Cafe, no, that wasn't right, at Tom's Restaurant, located on the corner of West 112th Street and Broadway in Morningside Heights. He sometimes had to mentally correct himself and distinguish between reality and a passing facsimile of reality, even if it was loosely based on his own reality. Sometimes, it got so confusing. "What was the deal with—" began his inner monologue before he heard the door open, and spotted Jason Alexander's bald head in the doorway.

They hadn't seen each other since filming a promo and an episode for "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee," which some had speculated would be an official Seinfeld reunion. Sadly, that was not to be. However, it was nice to get the gang together when in town. Julia Louis-Dreyfus was rumored to possibly show up to join them, now that she had finished filming season three of Veep. No one had seen Michael Richards for years.

That's all for this season of Teen Wolf? I don't mean all as in, like, "I needed more" kind of way (I really didn't), but more in a "What am I going to watch on Mondays?" way. Last night's episode was so full of ~action~ that it barely had time to acknowledge Allison's death. That's a lot of action!

The plot, of course, centered around the quest to destroy Evil Stiles and the crew of Oni he was now leading. I'll be the first to admit that I'm all for 2 x's the Stiles on my screen, but even I was like, "OK, Evil Stiles, you have got to go. BAI." Aside from all the killing and maiming, Stiles and Evil Stiles are actually quite similar—especially sartorially! Did Evil Stiles raid normal, dreamboat Stiles' closet? Let's take a look!

Will the real Stiles please stand up?Photo: MTV

If you haven't seen the episode, would you be able to tell which one was evil? Evil Stiles (on the right) is dressed in an outfit you could totally imagine regular ol' Stiles dressed in, right? Just, like, darker. Hooded T-shirts, corduroy jackets, and layers are wardrobe staples. How did his evil twin get a hold of those clothes? Sheriff Stilinski, you should probably be a little more alert if a random boy is rooting around your son's closet. You're a cop—just sayin'. I know Void Stiles is responsible for mass destruction and chaos in Beacon Hills, but he looks like the Stiles we know and love, so it's kinda hard to hate him, TBH. (JK, I DO!)

Veronica Mars

All of you saw the Veronica Mars movie last weekend, right? Right?! (If not, we hope the surgery went well, since presumably that’s your excuse.) So last week, we strolled down the hallowed halls of Neptune High with Salvador Perez, costume designer for the original series. He filled us in on the secrets behind Veronica’s pink-and-green color palette, Logan’s love of orange, the genesis of Dick’s statement tees, and so much more.

We also spoke to the film’s costume designer, Genevieve Tyrrell, to find out how she helped the beloved gang of Pirates ~mature~. The movie picks up 10 years after we last saw the cast in college, and so much has happened: Veronica has swapped her career as a private detective for a promising future as a lawyer, she’s been in a year-long relationship with Piz (Chris Lowell), and she hasn’t spoken to her epic love Logan (Jason Dohring) in NINE YEARS! But when Logan is accused of murdering his pop star girlfriend, Bonnie DeVille (née Carrie Bishop, played by Andrea Estrella), Veronica quickly ditches her new life in New York City to return to Neptune, where she confronts suspects old and new (hi, Gaby Hoffmamnn and Martin Starr!). (They play Ruby Jetson and Lou "Cobb" Cobbler, respectively.) Tyrrell dished on Veronica’s grown-up steez, Bonnie’s rock-roots fashion inspiration, and why modern-day Logan presented her with a “wardrobe conundrum.”

So when you signed on to the film, what was your first step in planning the characters’ style?

We did a breakdown of the progression of the characters. With Veronica in particular, because the series has a more ’90s sensibility, we wanted to show the passage of time, to show that she had graduated college, that she was this professional New York adult woman now. We also set about to make the initial changes that we see at the beginning in New York be different from what we then were moving to when she gets back to Neptune.

Sal mentioned you hadn’t seen much of the series. Did you end up having to watch a lot of it to get prepped?

Well, I watched the first season and the last season, and I talked to Sal about how he saw the characters during the series, and he gave me a ton of information about their personalities, which was incredibly helpful. And then, you know, talking to [creator] Rob [Thomas], talking to some of the producers—because we see the characters in this one-week period in the movie. Dick and Logan and everybody has had life happen since we last saw them, so it was important to get that information.

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