Katy Perry shut down Hollywood Boulevard in this show-stopping, cinematic look.
Hollywood Boulevard was transformed into a concert venue yesterday, as Katy Perry blocked off the avenue and took to the stage before the premiere of her new 3D concert documentary, Katy Perry: Part of Me. Decked out in an at-the-movies-themed bustier-strategically placed film reels and all-and a thematically matching popcorn skirt, Perry performed songs spanning her career, from her first single "I Kissed A Girl" all the way up to "Wide Awake." Of course, no Katy performance would be complete without at least one costume change of some kind, and Perry delivered by slipping out of her skirt to reveal a pair of high-waisted, candy bar print hotpants. While this transformation has nothing on the eight costume changes Katy completes during her performance of "Hot N Cold" in the concert doc, it's definitely something.
Katy Perry's Dolce & Gabbana has elements of both graceful old hollywood and playful rockabilly.
After wowing the crowd out on the boulevard, Katy took a more traditional, albeit still totally glam, route on the red, or wait, excuse me, pink, carpet. Wearing a strapless, bright red cocktail length gown and matching red pumps, Katy looked every bit the silver screen darling posing with friends and family. We love the dress, with its luxuriously draped sweetheart bodice and peek-a-boo black crinoline for a little bit of rockabilly flair, but the real wow factor comes in the close up. The Dolce & Gabbana masterpiece isn't your typical summer silk, no: it's velvet. While it's an unlikely choice for a summer premiere and Katy was probably close to sweltering in the LA desert heat, we loved the pure, unabashed glamor of the look. It's Katy's party, and she'll wear velvet in the summer if she wants to (also props to Johnny Wujek, most fearless stylist ever, as always). We would be remiss if we didn't also mention Katy's beyond bonkers nail game, featuring 3D glasses, another film reel, and popcorn, painted over ruby slipper glitter. The mani matched Katy's iced out birthday cake slice clutch, well, sweetly, and really sent her ultra-luxe look over the top.

Let's just all agree that the weekend has officially arrived early, thanks to Cobra Starship and their amazingly addictive dance anthem "#1nite." Originally released way back in June '11, the band has outdone themselves- yes, again-with an updated version of the pop jam and a brand new video. Featuring emerging Canadian singer My Name Is Kay on vocals along with Starship frontman Gabe Saporta, the vid just premiered yesterday on MTV. It's filled with road trips, summer loving, and a major gas station dress up party. And naturally, now that we've watched the clip all morning (and danced in our seats the entire time), we can finally focus on what we're here for- the fashion. Let's do this...

Can we just say that summer looks reeeeeeally good on Selena Gomez? Okay, real talk, everything looks good on this girl, but the season of sun and skin appears to be where Sel is truly thriving. The Spring Breakers star graced New York City this weekend for the grand launch of her eponymously named fragrance. For the scent's ceremonious debut, Selena wore the most grade A-dorbz summer short suit, looking the perfect combination of summery fresh and fashion forward.

Last week we asked everyone to show us the coolest ways you wear your hats, and boy, did you deliver! From fedoras to floppy felt ones to even a furry number, you guys showed us the best ways to literally top off your outfits. These insta-accessories serve as sun protectors, a potential disguise (hey, you never know who you're going to run into...) and are undoubtedly the easiest way to spice up an otherwise boring wardrobe. They've been all over the catwalks the past few seasons, but you definitely don't have to go all-out with oversized toppers a la Louis Vuitton FW12 or commit to the crazy floral hoods that stomped down the runway at Dolce and Gabbana in order to get in on the trend. Whether you decide to pair yours with a sundress, a miniskirt, or just blue jeans, these girls will teach you how put a lid on it.
Selena Gomez for 'Elle' Magazine.

Helloooooo, NURSE! Excuse us while we shove our eyeballs back into their sockets, but this Selena Gomez Elle Magazine spread is tongue-waggingly amazeballs. Our little Selenita is all grown up and flaunting some seriously sexy fashion. I mean, this is some opulent, glamourous Donatella Versace muse-type steez. For the newstand cover, Sel wears a heavily embellished mesh corset from Dolce & Gabbana with a bold scarlet lip and a grip of gold baubles. She's backdropped against a far-reaching horizon line of rolling ocean waves, onyx hair perfectly windswept, shimmering eyes framed by extra-strong brows.

Greetings, Internet dwellers. Here is a thing I've found. They're called Spiked Leggings, and you can buy them at one of our favorite e-retailers, Nasty Gal. The only question is: would you? As you've probably deduced by now, these aren't your mom's, aunt's, or grandmother's leggings. Also, these stem-swaddlers are definitely not to be confused with studded leggings which we're mighty familiar with thanks to Miss Beyonce Knowles. These are high-waisted black leggings which feature a row of three 4+ inch fabric-covered spikes down each shin. They're as head-turning as they are spatially-menacing, which is what brings us to our go-to style colosseum: you, dear readers!
Just announced today! Johnny Depp will be honored with the 2012 MTV Movie Awards Generation Award live on Sunday night for his gigantic contribution to the film industry. Eeee! From Edward Scissorhands to Pirates of the Caribbean to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Johnny has been the leading man in some of the most iconic films of all time. During his nearly 30-year long career, he has also sported some of the most show-stopping onscreen ensembles we have ever seen. The makeup in his Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter get-up ALONE is worthy enough of standing ovation, but hey, let's take it alllll back to where it began—with some curly hair in a popular 1984 flick called A Nightmare on Elm Street.

The Look: A young, fresh-faced Johnny Depp showed off his preppier side in the horror flick by sporting a light blue and white color-blocked polo with a signature permed '80s 'do. Also, THOSE. BROWS.
Is it just us or has Jeremy Scott been KILLIN' it lately? Earlier this week the designer revealed a 24K gold ensemble he created for Rihanna, and today we discovered that he outfitted THE Nicki Minaj for her summer-long Pink Friday tour. She kicked it off yesterday with a performance in Sydney, Australia, and we couldn't get enough of her hot pink and yellow ensemble! Jeremy Scott tweeted that he created these graffiti-inspired looks for Ms. Minaj and her backup dancers, and we must discuss them IMMEDIATELY.

First off, OMG TEEN WOLF IS BACK FOR A SECOND SEASON. *pants* We are more than thrilled to see Colton Haynes and Holland Roden's adorable little faces back on the small screen, and even MORE excited to see them out and about, flashing their fashion-y selves all around town. Last night at Nylon Magazine's Young Hollywood Party, the Teen Wolf twosome sported killer colorblock ensembles that we need to discuss. Colton wore an azure blue blazer, matching blue shirt, and black trousers—and not only did Colton colorblock his outfit, but his shoes too! These lace-up oxfords have a swipe of gray at the toe, and we love that.
Early this year, news of Katy Perry's Sims debut had KatyCats pawing for a piece of the special Katy Perry edition of The Sims 3. The OG game was already chock full of Katy-themed details, but now, EA has released an extra "Sweet Treats" pack with even more Candyfornia sets, props, hairstyles, and fashions! Since we ran the first virtual performance outfits through the ringer, we thought it would only be fair to extend the same gesture to the new pack. Walk with us as we explore how these ensembles stack up against their IRL inspirations!

Katy Perry wore this bejeweled tromp l'oeil onesie tearing up the 2010 MTV Movie Awards stage. For her upbeat performance of "California Gurls," Katy wore a bright cerulean version of her signature Candyfornia Bettie Page 'do, a sparkle-covered cut-out romper that gave the illusion of a teeny top and high-waisted denim shorts. She finished it off with graphic t-strap heels and a spoonful of attitude. The shoes fall short in the Sims version and EA adds some superfluous hair flowers, but overall, the virtual replica nails this one.
