Miley Cyrus in a still from her MTV documentary.
Wow, y'all, wow. Did you guys catch the trailer for Miley: The Movement? We did and can't get over how many looks we peeped in under two minutes—how many outfits will be in the actual documentary on October 2, a million? The trailer gives us a glimpse into Miley's preparations for the VMAs and her life on the road, which A) does not look easy and B) requires quite a few wardrobe changes. So that you're well-versed in Miley style by the time the documentary hits TVs for real, we've broken down the trailer look by look, including each *bling* look. Yeah, we're that thorough when it comes to Miley.

Are you in the market for some gently worn clothing and/or shoes? Would you be into paying a lot of money for clothing that was once worn by members of a boy band whom you love? Do you have the scientific knowledge to extract DNA from worn clothing and then produce a clone from said DNA? Well, then, the stars have aligned for you! One Direction and Office Depot, as we know, have joined forces to produce back-to-school gear that is adorned with five QT faces. Now, fortunately for everyone in the world, Office Depot has gotten its hands on shirts, shoes, and pants worn by Harry, Niall, Liam, Zayn, and Louis and is auctioning them off for charity.
Hannah Montana WHO?
Get used to it, World. Miley Cyrus and her rear are here to stay, at least if the official promo photos from Bangerz are any indication. And you know what? She’s got some choice words for all the haterz out there: (SEE PHOTO ABOVE). Provocatively crouched on an armchair in black-and-white checkered pants, a plain white sports bra and her super-lux, mink-lined, gold Celine sandals (which come in at a cool $910 – NBD), Miley makes quite the statement amid a shady rain forest that’s seemingly set up with electrical outlet capabilities.
Katy Perry's 2013 VMA outfits.

One 2013 VMA performer, three looks. That's right, show closer Katy Perry didn't end her night in her boxing gear, but changed yet again, into a very familiar look. As we know, the "Roar" singer kicked off the night, on the red carpet, in a long-sleeved, knee-length, Emanuel Ungaro animal print FW13 dress and a sparkly set o'grillz. She then showed us how to "Roar" under the Brooklyn Bridge, where she performed her new single for the first time, decked out in boxing gear, including an animal-print sports bra.

They boys are back in town, y'all! The One Direction machine never stops: after attending the premiere of their movie, This Is Us, a mere three days ago, the group is back in NYC to attend the American movie premiere, perform on the Today Show, and present an award at the VMAs, NBD. Seems like a relaxing vacay to New York, JK!

Greta Gerwig's onscreen alter-ego in the new indie movie Frances Ha might be a little bit bumbling and slightly (OK, really) awkward, but that doesn't make her struggling Brooklyn dancer protagonist any less lovable. In fact, it's these imperfections, along with her off-kilter clothing collection, that keep Frances true to life and SO freaking lovable. Her character's uniform consists mainly of thrifted ill-fitting bomber jackets and leggings over sundresses, but in real life, Greta Gerwig's wardrobe is far from schleppy. The actress, writer, and director has earned rising style star status over the past couple of years, fronting Band of Outsiders' ad campaign, going punk for the Met Gala, and just this week, was a total breath of fresh air dressed in a white pantsuit at the CFDA Awards. Before she takes off to promote Frances Ha overseas, Greta called to chat about the story behind the movie's costumes and her trick to staying sane on the red carpet.
It was the fashion mystery of the internet just mere days ago: WHO designed Katniss' wedding dress in these new The Hunger Games: Catching Fire character portraits? Well, the answer has emerged... and it's not who we (or anyone else, really) predicted! According to The Hollywood Reporter, the creation comes courtesy of Indonesian designer Tex Saverio. They got the scoop from the flick's costume designer herself, Trish Summerville, who revealed, "Katniss’ white gown is by a designer named Tex Saverio in Jakarta. He is amazing! I found his designs quite some time ago and saved his information for a perfectly fitting project, then came Catching Fire – perfect!" Inspired by a dress he had debuted earlier, which came adorned with a metal bodice, the wedding gown has a similar metal top. But THIS time, it's covered in Swarovski crystals, pieces rising up intended to represent fire, as well as Mockingjay-esque feathers.

We're still admittedly giddy from Jennifer Lawrence's epic Oscars win last month, but you know what? It's officially time to put the past behind us (for now) and move on to J.Law's NEWEST project: a little film you might have heard of called The Hunger Games. The flick won't premiere until November, but this week we've been sneaking peeks via Capitol Couture of the characters decked out in, well, couture. Yes, literally. Whereas the first film's costume designer Judianna Makovsky stuck with pared-down Americana looks and retro clothes from the '30s, THIS movie's designer Trish Summerville gave Katniss, Effie Trinket, Haymitch and Caesar a makeover directly from the runways. Recognize the similarities between Effie's flame-red gown and this look from Alexander McQueen's Fall 2012 collection above? The flouncy organza ruffles, the strapless top, the exaggerated waist...talk about IDENTICAL! If Effie's dress is "Phresh Out The Runway" (sorry, Rihanna reference), then that means Katniss' white gown-slash-probable-wedding-dress most likely is, too...right?
A still from 'Snow White and the Huntsman.'

If you've watched a movie, you've probably seen a costume by Colleen Atwood. Unless, that is, you've never seen Alice in Wonderland, Edward Scissorhands (pretty much any movie by Tim Burton) or the film she's been nominated for both a Costume Designers Guild Award and an Oscar this year—Snow White and the Huntsman. But, really, you've seen her costumes. Remember those super-gothy, high-collared ensembles in Sweeney Todd (aka Scary Johnny Depp) or the covetable mini dresses Amanda Seyfried wore running alongside Timberlake in In Time? Yep, Atwood. She's been nominated for ten Academy Awards throughout her career and already has three gold statuettes hanging out on a shelf or mantel space somewhere. It's virtually impossible not to experience finger cramping while scrolling through her impressive resume, but, suffice it to say, from gloves made of scissors to an entire dress festooned with beetles, she's pretty much the top of the tops in the world of costume design. Annnnd she's an incredibly busy woman. So much so, we only got about five minutes with her in anticipation of all of the awards being given out this week. But, to our delight, she willingly opened up about Snow White, what it's like working with Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth, and Charlize Theron, as well as what goes into becoming a costume designer yourself. Get the scoop below!
