Oh my gahhhh, you guys. Guess what? It's James Franco's birthday. Weeee! The actor/student/filmmaker/Twitter quitter (sadface) turns 33 years old today. To celebrate this ever-joyous occasion, we give you the best present of all: TWO PHOTOS of James Franco! (*piñata explodes with glittery hats and tetra packs of champagne!*) Let's stare at it. Mmmm. Excellently-fitted navy suit. Crisp white shirt. Skinny burgundy tie. Retro-chic Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses that look like Ray-Ban Clubmasters but ain't. Effortlessly swooshed-back hair. Yep. Just as we thought. He's perfect. Like, he's SO perfect that you can't ACTUALLY date him. He's more like an idea. Like, love. Or poetry. Or quiche. James Franco is too busy being a muse and being inspired for dating. He's off starting a college class about himself or working on (gasp!) SIX upcoming films at once or making super huge statements like "social media is over." And you know what stinks? We REALLY miss the social media James. We miss his mundane oversharing, his Microsoft Paint mockeries of celebs, and him singing Cher. Honestly, in the dark corners of our cubicles, sometimes the only beacon of light was stumbling upon a photo of James sleeping on the couch with cats or reading his slightly-disturbing handwritten comics. Yeah, so we MIGHT be self-admitted Francophiles (persons obsessed with James Franco, obvi), so James, babe, maybe on this special day, you could give a little gift back to us? Like, just a tweet. Just let us know you're alive and well and dark and kooky and still doing weird stuff in your free time. And giggling. We know you do lots of giggling. What do you think, gorgeous, gorgeous birthday boy? Give us a little love back? We heart you. MOAR OUTFIT TWITPICS PLEASE.

Justin Bieber at the Academy Awards in Hollywood on Feb. 27, at the "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never" premiere in Paris on Feb. 17 and London on Feb. 16.

Justin Bieber has had quite a momentous year—he released an album, headlined a tour, debuted a 3-D biopic/concert film, sold out a nail polish collection barring his name, and most recently—it appears—charmed teen crooner Selena Gomez. But as he bids farewell to his 16th year, perhaps memorialized by the cutting of his iconic mane (what a Samson and Delilah-thing to do, right?), we'd like to help ring in the teen idol's 17th birthday by shouting out a few of his most recent style hits. Happy birthday, Biebs!

• For the Academy Awards on Feb. 27, Justin debuted his new haircut for the first time in a three-piece Dolce & Gabbana ensemble with a red pocket scarf (way to match the carpet!) and a BaubleBar Pop bracelet.

• Justin wore his favorite color for the Paris premiere of Never Say Never on Feb. 17. With loosened kicks, baggy fitted jeans and a dog tag chain, he was able to make his geeky purple V-neck cardigan look cool.

• The boy phenom also rocked D&G (it's his go-to designer) for the London premiere of Never Say Never on Feb. 16. Justin teamed a waist coat, bow tie, shirt, and jeans with a pair of CLEAN black and white sneaks.

+ Which look do you like the best on J.B.?

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