Style has moved! come with us to mtv news »

The countdown to prom is ON. Yesterday we hooked you up with some amazing dresses that can be yours for under $150, and today we're upping the ante just a little bit more. While it TOTALLY doesn't matter how much you spend on your dress, just the way that you wear it, prom is a big deal and sometimes you want to be a little spendier. There are TONS of low priced options that will have you snatching prom queen crowns all over town, but we also found some breathtaking options between $150 and $350 that will guarantee you're the belle of the ball. From totally trendy to completely classic, the 10 dresses we're going to show you have a little something for everyone.

When searching for dress inspiration, we love to think back to some of our favorite historical eras. Now, we're not encouraging dressing up in a costume, but if you don't have the option to hunt for the perfect vintage piece, looking for more modern frocks in old timey cuts or styles can be a great way to get the look you're longing for. One of our favorite eras to pull from is the roaring 20's, when flapper style was all the rage. Sheaths, drop waists and, most essentially, beading were big in the era, and there are some great new options for you to effortlessly channel your inner Daisy Buchanan. In a classic drop waist sheath silhouette, we love ASOS' Frock and Frill Sequined Embellished Dress with Deep V Back ($244.44). For a more red carpet feel, the Adrianna Papel Beaded Gown ($260) sets our hearts aflutter. And finally, somewhere between period and modern is the Pisarro Nights Beaded Mesh Gown ($198)

Kristen Stewart at Comic Con.

Chalk it up to her Balenciaga duties and the Snow White and the Huntsman press, but Kristen Stewart has been in high fashion mode all summer long- modeling in designer campaigns, working everything from harnesses to sheer gowns on the red carpet, and fronting no fewer than FOUR glossy covers this season. The actress looks great glammed up (clearly) but all it takes is one glance at her low key outfit yesterday at Comic Con to see that K. Stew is clearly back in her casual-cool element...and she's loving it.

Way to go, K.Stew! Our favorite jeans-and-tee wearing cool girl has officially grown, at least. Just within the last week, Kristen Stewart has already donned a see-through Marchesa gown at the London Snow White and the Huntsman premiere and gotten in touch with, uh, her manlier side for Elle magazine. Her latest style baby step was at the film's photo call in Madrid earlier today, where the star worked one of the season's biggest trends: the harness. She attached the black leather embellishment to her altered BCBG Pre-Fall dress (shortened from the runway version), giving the already-edgy frock a tough twist. Paired with a side braid (hello, Katniss Everdeen!) and barefaced beauty look, it's a high-fashion version of the actress we already know and love.

Solange Knowles

Our sartorial saliva is in drool overdrive, and we're blaming Solange Knowles. Bey's baby sister is blogging her daily outfit over at British Vogue for the ENTIRE month of February, and we already can't get enough of her enviable wardrobe. For her debut outfit (posted yesterday), she showed off a lightning blue oversized (duh) T By Alexander Wang sweater paired with Guess by Marciano leather fit-like-a-glove pants, major BCBG pumps, to-die-for Linda Farrow sunnies, and a hot pink CC Skye clutch, for which Solange perfectly explains: "Yes, I support daytime clutch-wearing!" So, what's the special occasion for the head-turning getup? Oh, just a casual studio visit. NBD. Also, can we talk about her giving serious face under that umbrella (ella, ella)? I mean, I guess we're not THAT surprised, considering she was signed to Next Model earlier this month. Get ittt.

Lacy Collins BCBG Lace Dress

I know what you're thinking. From her FABTASTIC thick brows to her flawless wavy hair, Lily Collins couldn't BE any more adorable. Like, she's so sweet and innocent and stylish that your head is going to explode from the sheer cuteness of it all. Well, she's managed to take the ADORBS look to new, unprecedented levels in a blue lace BCBG dress, which you can snatch up yourself for $298. Lace is obviously the fabric du jour (see Lady Gaga's last, what, 10 see-through outfits?) but Lily makes it youthful, trendy, and fun because she's THAT fash-mazing. Tear. Dad Phil Collins has gotta be proud.

In last night's episode of Gossip Girl, "Petty in Pink," we found out that Lily Bass Humphrey (Kelly Rutherford) got sentenced to house arrest instead of who-knows-how-many-years in the big house for sending an innocent man to prison. She'll spend the next nine months hiding her ankle monitor, but that means she gets to stock up on new long maxi dresses and wide leg slacks (always looking on the bright side).

An editor contacted Dan with an assignment to follow and slyly report on visiting Prince Louie Grimaldi. Turns out the French prince was actually Blair Waldorf's (Leighton Meester) fling from her summer spent in Paris. His majesty defied his parents to spend time with his American crush (Blair) in NYC. To ensure Louie was able to stick around, she staged a kiss with Dan Humphrey (Penn Badgley) to trick the prince's handler into believing he isn't commingling with the commoner. OF COURSE, the scheme backfired. Charlie Rhodes (Kaylee DeFer) sent footage of the "kiss" to Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively) and Gossip Girl, who proceeded to send it to the entire Upper West Side.

Meanwhile, Raina Thorpe (Tika Sumpter) was on the hunt for her birth mother but didn't want to tell Chuck Bass (Ed Westwick), who was drowning his own misery in booze, straight-up Howard Hughes-style. At first, Chuck wanted to stop Raina from finding her mother, but then he had a change of heart.

And, what would an episode of Gossip Girl be without a high-fashion party scene? In this installment, it was the annual UWS Pink Party (Think: P. Diddy's white party...with petal, salmon, and honeysuckle hues). Check Blair's Oscar de la Renta strapless frock, and Serena's Marchesa mini. HOT.

In Gossip Girl's 10th episode of season four, "Gaslit," there were no parties, thus no floor-length sparkly dresses with mini-trains or over-the-top suits for us to go gaga over (sniff sniff). Instead, the episode took a more somber turn, centering around Serena's (Blake Lively) "apparent"—she was actually drugged by girl-with-some-kind-of-chip-on-her-shoulder Juliet Sharp (Kate Cassidy)—overdose pre-Thanksgiving and her admittance into a rehab facility. While there weren't really any red carpet worthy looks last night, a couple of super-wearable, chic looks did pop up. Jenny Humphrey (Taylor Momsen), who tried to right her wrongs against Serena in this episode, teamed her signature dark lipstick with layers of gray—a mini sweater dress, a plaid coat and over-the-knee boots. Meanwhile Juliet Sharp, who seemed to grow even more conniving throughout the episode, left the Upper East Side in a long sleeve, cutout navy minidress with black stockings and Christian Louboutin pumps. Both ladies did casual-chic the right way, but we love Juliet's "I'll-just-skip-town-looking-hot" ensemble. Which mean girl do you think was best dressed?
