Veronica Mars

The many looks of Veronica Mars.

OK, Marshmallows, the fan-funded Veronica Mars movie is only a day away from theaters. Are you as excited/relieved as we are (impossible) that Veronica will finally be reunited with Logan, her one true love (sorry-not-sorry, Piz), as well as Wallace, Mac, Dick, and the rest of the Neptune Pirates?

Well, not so fast. First, let’s wallow in our nostalgia for creator Rob Thomas’ brilliant, short-lived series, which aired on UPN/The CW from 2004 until 2007 and starred Kristen Bell as a droll teenage detective trying to solve the murder of her best friend (Amanda Seyfried) in the small beach town of Neptune, California. The series ended after three seasons with things between Veronica and (obligatory-psychotic-jackass-turned-epic-love-interest) Logan (Jason Dohring) left tragically unresolved. The open-ended, unsatisfying finale only served to spur on a fandom that multiplied like gremlins in water over the six years since the series was yanked from the small screen, with the result being enough wallet-wielding followers that the proposed film version raised and surpassed its Kickstarter goal of $2 million within its first 11 hours, breaking records, causing aftershocks in pop culture, and becoming a cancelled-series fandom/crowd-funding legend.

And who could forget Veronica in those chunky Fluevog boots and military jackets? Or Logan's triumphant smoldering amid all that orange? Or Dick (Party Down's Ryan Hansen) rocking those smarmy statement tees? You’ve already seen the trailer, so you probably noticed how all growed up everybody is. Veronica is wearing black(!) pantsuits now, Mac (Tina Marjorino) has an awesome hair cut, and is that Logan looking perfectly at home in a fitted dress shirt? But before we swoon over the characters’ updated styles with the film’s costume designer, Genevieve Tyrrell, which we will do next week (so check back), we wanted to talk to the man who first put puka shells on Logan Echolls: series costume designer Salvador Perez (Pitch Perfect, The Mindy Project). “Rob created those characters, and he made them interesting, but I made them look cool,” says Perez. Indeed, and we have about 97 questions for him.

Pharrell

Pharrell Williams, the great collaborator, has just added another joint project to his résumé: a unisex fragrance with Comme des Garcons. From Daft Punk to BAPE, he has a knack for bringing established entities into his creative ecosystem and helping bring forth a beautiful, refreshing take on something you already loved. But he's more than just the ultimate remix artist; his collaborative projects are so wildly successful because of his ability to marry his own original creative sensibilities with a keen eye for curation—he knows precisely the best elements of a sound or an aesthetic to elevate. For all of the above reasons, we're SO excited about this forthcoming scent. The only thing we're disappointed about is: We sort of feel like we should have seen this coming.

If you have two hands and a smartphone, chances are you've shown off your nail art on Instagram at LEAST once in your life. It's pretty much a given. But what if you could show off your Instagram pictures ON your nail art? Photos of your half-eaten cheeseburger or your #tbt baby pic plastered on your fingers for the whole world to see IRL. Well, thanks to NailSnaps and their genius Kickstarter campaign, that dream could very well become a possibility. The company promises to turn your smartphone pics into custom-made nail stickers—provided they earn enough money, of course. Quick, someone send them $40,000 RIGHT NOW.

If NailSnaps is able to change the face of nail art forever, there are a few celeb Instagram accounts we may have to borrow from. As much as my cat's face deserves to be a semi-permanent fixture on my manicure, the snapshots of the rich and famous are just a liiitle bit more interesting. Since we're VERY IMPATIENT, we already Photoshopped a few (OK, 12) of the famous pics we'd steal for ourselves. Just to, y'know, see how it'd look.

By now, everyone knows that Lupita Nyong'o has great style. She is one of the most colorful dressers to ever walk the red carpet and judging by the impressive palette she’s pulled off so far, she can’t do any wrong. So it’s kind of a given that she’d be on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter’s 25 Top Stylists of 2014 issue, literally hugging the woman who helped propel her to the fashion darling that she is today, Micaela Erlanger, alongside fellow House of Erlanger disciple, Downton Abbey star Michelle Dockery.

In case you missed it, we played host to Ellie Goulding, Shailene Woodley, and Theo James last night for a special Divergent-themed edition of MTV First. We watched the premiere of Ellie's "Beating Heart" music video, played a few rounds of "Would You Rather," and discussed the art of kissing. What we didn't expect to get was a bit of beauty advice courtesy of Miss Goulding.

Teen Wolf

Umm, is everyone recovered from last night's Teen Wolf? Liiike, what is going on? Between all the blood, flies, and Stiles vomiting up used bandages, my eyes were closed for, like, 50% of the episode. Luckily they were wide open when Kira and Allison wore matching leather sleeves! Are they communicating telepathically now? Let's discuss.

First of all, how awesome were these two last night? Yeah, their jackets were on point, but also, uh, they helped save all these nogitsune-possessed men from themselves. Big up, Kira and Allison. Second of all, they both looked really good while doing so. It's not an easy task, but they managed AND triumphed!

Selena Gomez shoots her new NEO campaign in NYC.
Photo: Splash News

Ladies and gentlemen, I am THRILLED to report that it is an insanely beautiful day in NYC. After what seemed like an eternity stuck in the midst of multiple polar vortexes, I can officially confirm that spring is 100% springing. (Although, I'm no weatherman, so it wouldn't surprise me if it snowed tomorrow.) Point being, people are out in hoards enjoying the sunshine, including Selena Gomez, who looks to be spending the day shooting a new Adidas NEO campaign atop the city's elevated High Line park.

Last month, Selena x NEO sent us on a video scavenger hunt that previewed several looks from her seven-piece spring collection, which hit stores February 12. But what collection are these snaps for? In the first shot, Gomez is wearing a black infinity scarf and a sleeveless denim shirt, lace-up combat boots, and black tights, which hints (to me, anyway) that this shoot must be for fall, because there's no way I'd EVER wear tights again before then.

Divergent

Only 10 more days until Divergent hits the big screens. TEN DAYS, people. That may seem like a short amount of time, but for fans of the dystopian book series (myself included), it is still long enough to feel like torture. The film's trailers have revealed little snippets of what's to come—The Pit, fear landscapes, ferris wheel, Theo James' abs—and it already looks pretty amazing. And on the style tip, thanks to costume designer Carlo Poggioli, the faction wardrobes are RIGHT on point.

Lena Dunham has been deep in photo shoots since the year began. First, she made her Vogue cover debut in February. Then she enlisted Shirley Kurata and Autumn de Wilde to capture the cover of her debut book, Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She’s “Learned.” And now, she’s landed the cover of Glamour’s April issue.

Rihanna

How much does Rihanna's necklace weigh, TBH?
Photo: Splash News

It's no secret that Rihanna is all about #phreshofftherunway looks. She's also all about pieces that are #CCcertified AND has shown an affinity for oversized accessories in the past. Thus, a necklace that made its grand debut just last week at Chanel's Fall 2014 runway show is obviously an ideal accessory. Especially if it's a lock so big that it could secure a yacht.

Rihanna must've called dibs on the padlock necklace last week as she was making friends/posing for scrapbook photos during Paris Fashion Week, and Uncle Karl must've hooked her up. Between the gold bike chain and the size of the lock, Rih's neck must be exhausted. What kind of exercises are needed to prepare your neck for such a weighty accessory? Is this called a LOCKet? I have a lot of questions.

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