Chanel Iman on the cover of Galore.

One could argue that every issue of Galore mag is one about women who rock, since their subjects are always so bonkers amazing, but their Spring 2013 glossy certainly ups the ante in that department. Featuring interviews with a grip of awesome ladies, including Kate Nash, Andrej Pejic, and Brooke Candy, and a slightly racy cover shoot featuring Chanel Iman, it has spring fever written all over it. Shot by Ellen Von Unwerth, Chanel poses in a silver, deep v-necked bodysuit and mirrored gold pumps, silver sunglasses pushed girlishly up on her head, eyes looking straight into the camera, like she's contemplating whether or not to eat you alive. The vibe is a little bit Boogie Nights, a little bit '70s, and extremely opulent, and it's really working for us.
Jaden Smith, Willow Smith, Louie Sebert and Ke$ha at the 2013 Kids' Choice Awards.
It was a family affair on the orange carpet at the 2013 Kids Choice Awards! Brother and sister duos like Ke$ha and Louie Sebert and Jaden and Willow Smith strolled together in sibling style.
When it comes to the Smiths, well ya can't really get much more sibling star power than the two of them (especially after we've already seen instances of their coordinating style- please say this will become a thing!?). Jaden kept it simple with an oversized black hoodie, pants and sneaks, really letting Willow shine. The budding fashion maven rocked a denim jacket, white textured frock, some well-loved Chanel boots and neon socks for a pop of color.
The RiFF RaFF collaboration t-shirt with NEFF may be totally sold out on KarmaLoop (where the partnered up piece enjoyed its run and exclusive limited edition release), but from the looks of this picture recently uploaded to the JODY HiGHROLLER's Instagram (and the PacSun Instagram with the confirmation assist!!!), this '80s-channeling NEFF graphic of the Mad Decent MC's mug will be getting another life on store shelves thanks to California-based retailer PacSun. Conveniently (more likely, strategically) in time for IRL Spring Break AND the nationwide theater release of the movie Spring Breakers.
Rita Ora for Superga.

So we've been keeping some very close tabs on Rita Ora's new modeling gig as the face of Italian sneaker company Superga (see exhibits A, B, and C), but while much of our, uh, "research" thus far has been restricted to rumors and Instagram pics, now we can finally witness the campaign in all of its hi-res glory! Straight from the brand itself, these pics showcase Rita showing off her true sneaker steez— making even a long silk dress and a full face of makeup look streetwear-cool with her tan lowtops. Complete with soft, Marilyn Monroe-esque waves and retro sunglasses, Rita's look has fully convinced us to push the rest of our shoe stash aside for the moment. This spring, it's ALL about sneakers. #sorryimnotsorry
Sorry to say this, but we're jerks. We've seen Spring Breakers before its official theater release this Friday, and we cannot stop thinking about it. Here's why: It stars good-girls-gone-bad Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, Vanessa Hudgens and Rachel Korine who are so desperate to get away from their college town that they'll do whatever it takes to get money to go on spring break. (And we mean anything, see: guns, ski masks.) Oddly enough, we can sort of relate because, um, it's DISMAL outside, and we're straight-up dreaming of sunny beaches, cut-off shorts, flip-flops—and a little adventure. But instead of, erm, committing crimes to get our spring break fix, we're doing the next best thing—painting our nails! From the trailers, paparazzi sightings, and movie posters, you can already tell it won't be your typical spring break movie, so sit back and relax while we explain why these manicures are the most badass (and beach ready!) manis you need to cop ASAP. Up first—a neon green and pink stiletto set that perfectly mixes together downright illegal criminal activity and SPRING BREAAKKKK!! WOOOOOOO! The gold bullet is a nice touch, too.
Rihanna performing in Buffalo, NY during her Diamonds World Tour on March 8.

Rihanna's oh-so-anticipated (and sold out!) Diamonds World Tour officially kicked off on Friday night in Buffalo, New York, which means there's tons of fresh performance outfits for us to drool over. Yasss! When it comes to Ri's on-stage ensembles, she doesn't mess around—longtime stylist Mel Ottenberg helped create an almost entirely-custom wardrobe for her tour, which includes everything from metallic jumpsuits to holographic sneakers to floor-sweeping capes. We counted 7 outfit changes (dang!) from her Friday show—one of our favorites being a superhero-inspired red, white, yellow and black custom Adam Selman (who we talked to last week!) leather bustier and pants number paired with custom Manolo Blahnik white snakeskin boots. According to WWD, Rihanna's all-black ensemble was custom Givenchy couture by Riccardo Tisci, which featured a black and white leather bra with golden buckles and stars, black silk and satin embroidered shorts, and a gold shark tooth necklace that says "RIRI." Also, PLEASE peep those thigh-high gold-studded leather boots. #dead
Emma Watson and her castmates shooting The Bling Ring.
Emma Watson makes an excellent ringleader. I don't know about in real life, but in the movies at least, our girl Emma excels at playing characters with that electric combination of gumption and sweetness that makes her both the best friend and the girl everyone falls in love with. This seems to be the case for her character in the Sofia Coppola-directed Hollywood heist movie The Bling Ring, which comes out June 14th, although we suspect she might be coming up a touch short with regards to the sweetness part. In the film, Emma plays the ringleader of a group of teenagers who are running around the more tony parts of Los Angeles ransacking celebrities homes, like adolescent cat burglars caught on high-end security cameras. This might sound a lot like another teens-turned-to-crime film that's been on our minds lately, but unlike that other movie, The Bling Ring is based on a true story, and one that happened not too long ago. In the teaser, which opens with one of the girls smilingly suggesting, "let's go shopping," shows the kids pillaging a fancy closet of its coats, jewels, and lacy underthings, and then going on to do all kinds of wreckless bad kid stuff, from dirty dancing in the club to wearing sunglasses inside. There's also the suggestion of some REALLY bad stuff, with guns and tears and police, but the trailer doesn't give much away. Don't take our word for it, though, watch after the jump!
Fashion Week, especially Paris Fashion Week, is often regarded as a time for serious fashion (whatever that means). We beg to differ. From New York Fashion Week shade to London's wildest accessories to reimagining Milan Fashion Week with Beast Jesus, this has been a hilarious Fashion Month, punctuated with a giant, pizza-flavored exclamation point by Paris Fashion Week. Don't believe us? We rounded up our Top 5 favorite PFW runway photos that illustrate exactly that.
MARC JACOBS IN PAJAMAS

It's become markedly clear this season that Marc Jacobs is really having a pajama moment. First, there was his intergalactic loungewear party at NYFW and now he's closing out his Paris Louis Vuitton show in a full, floral set. WITH SANDALS. A hat tip to you, Marc. Stay cozy, bruh bruh.
L-Boy in Odd Future's Spring/Summer 2013 lookbook.

Nothing makes me pine for spring (and summer!) harder than a short-sleeved button-up shirt covered in hot air balloons. Also, heart-shaped sunglasses, but those aren't actually part of the Odd Future collection. New England readers beware, you're in for some serious coast envy. The OFWGKTA hip-hop collective (which also maintains a rapidly growing streetwear line and shop based on Los Angeles' infamous Fairfax Avenue) has just released a brand spankin' new lookbook for the Spring/Summer 2013 collection. The photo series stars Lionel, Lucas, and more of OF's closest friends modeling OF's newest togs, from this here balloon woven shirt to the classic cat-emblazoned designs (like this Trash Wang tee) that we've grown to know and love.
