Style has moved! come with us to mtv news »


Last night, for the third year in a row, Kristen Bell hosted the CMT Music Awards. While in previous years she was joined by co-hosts—Toby Keith and Jason Aldean—this is the first year she went at it solo and she took the opportunity to talk about men's fashion. Specifically, tight jeans. Real tight. In response to Kristen's "Moose Knuckles" tune, we wrote a response using the medium we're most familiar with: emoji.

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.

Just as its name suggets, the Film Independent Spirit Awards—an annual precursor to the Academy Awards which doles out trophies for artier, smaller-budget films—is also a night when Hollywood’s starlets feel free to do their own thing on the red carpet. In terms of fashion, it’s like the Oscars’ cool younger sister (the Skipper to Oscars' Barbie, if you will). Set in a tent on Santa Monica beach, the chill atmosphere usually makes for more interesting semi-casual attire, a departure from the ball gown parade. From rompers to cocktail dresses, here are our favorite looks.

Shailene Woodley is case in point of the stark contrast between the Oscars and Indie Spirit Awards, where stars wear real clothes—or, at least, clothes most people have a better chance of wearing IRL. The Spectacular Now nominee serves as a tutorial on how to wear a crop top on the red carpet, keeping the trend strong. Her Lyn Devon outfit perfectly balanced out her bare midriff with a tasteful maxi skirt, and majorly complemented her new pixie cut. Best of all: Shailene didn’t look too precious or fussy.

Veronica Mars

Veronica Mars, y'all.

Guys, we just can't get enough of the new Veronica Mars movie. On Friday, we watched the cast troll Comic-Con with their "Team Piz" and "Team Logan" tees, and before that, we broke down every single outfit Ms. Mars (Kristen Bell) has worn so far on set and got ALL the deets on the return of her infamous studded bag. But then, we were hit with the motherlode this weekend—the first look at ACTUAL, LIVING BREATHING FOOTAGE from the upcoming film! In it, we get to peep even MORE VM outfits, and (in-between totally spazzing out at this movie actually being a real thing) we noticed a serious theme happening in all her clothing: leather.

Veronica Mars Comic Con

I’ve got 99 problems, and the fact that I was not able to personally attend the Veronica Mars movie panel at Comic-Con covers all of them. My poor little fan girl heart needs some rest after all of this Marshmallowy goodness. Not only did we spaz out when we heard creator Rob Thomas sobbed while watching Logan and Veronica’s first kiss (he’s one of us!!), but the VMars dudes clearly had something special planned and decided to engage in a little fan trolling. Jason Dohring wore a "Team Piz" shirt (I wonder how Logan Echolls would feel about that) while Chris Lowell rocked a "Team Logan" shirt. Chris went on to explain that "I wore this shirt today just so I wouldn't be shot on stage." When Kristen Bell was asked who taught Jason his killer smolder, though, she replied simply with, "The heavens?" Dang, LoVe is in the air, y'all.

Comic-Con: where nerds and pop culture junkies come together peacefully and bombastically. This year’s four-day frenzy of panels and sneak peeks will feature films and TV shows that fall on both ends of the geek spectrum. Yes, there will be previews of some HUGE upcoming blockbusters, but you betta believe there will be just as many Pokemon tournaments and workshops with graphic novel publishers.

If you listen very carefully, you will probably be able to hear thousands of super fans finalizing the details on their elaborate costumes. Cosplay is one of THE coolest parts about conventions like Comic-Con. (Seriously, you should see some of the mind-blowing outfits people show up in.) When celebrities themselves show up in costume, that’s when we nerds really start to go crazy. Usually it’s something small, like Robert Downey Jr. sporting one of his Iron Man arms, but I’d love to see the stars REALLY let their inner freaks and geeks out. Here are some of my ideal celebrity cosplay suggestions for this year:

1. LIAM HEMSWORTH AND JENNIFER LAWRENCE AS KHAL DROGO AND DAENERYS TARGARYEN

I’ve been withering away with jealousy all week at the thought of Comic-Con attendees getting to see sneak previews of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire without me. I guess I could learn to forgive everyone if the cast members show up in some jaw-dropping costumes. Actually, I’m going to be more demanding: I’ll only forgive them if they show up in Game of Thrones costumes. Sorry, those are my terms.

The hottest couple in all of Westeros and Essos is hands-down Daenerys and Khal Drogo (RIP, you beautiful man), and the world would never stop fangirling if Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth decided to go the Dothraki route with their cosplay. First of all, who wouldn’t love to see how J-Law looks in white hair? We can probably assume she’d look perfect, especially with her brown gloves and boots, belted leather skirt, and burlap (?) halter top. And essentially Liam would just have to be shirtless with some eyeliner and a long braid. You won’t hear any complaints from me.

Veronica Mars Purse

Marshmallows, we hope you're sitting down because we've got some serious Veronica Mars fashion info up our sleeves. In case you missed it (LOL, you didn't), we peeped the first-ever images straight from the set a couple weeks ago and obsessed over Veronica's style evolution from a baby-tee wearin' teen to edgy college student to a casual-cool lawyer (let’s not go down the wormhole of why she’s holding hands with Piz, OK?) in what we assume is New York with her Mackage trench coat and sensible workwear get-up. But thanks to photos that debuted on EW last week from a shoot day at the Santa Monica Pier (as pictured above), we got a peek at scenes with Ken Marino and Kristen Bell. Seeing Vinnie automatically made us channel his version of Hall and Oates' "Private Eyes", but we couldn't keep our eyes off--GASP--the return of her signature studded bag?!

I had to write like seven intros to this piece because I was so overcome with emotion that this thing is finally happening. Like, I knew that the Veronica Mars movie had been successfully kickstarted, surpassing their $2 million goal by $3.7 million, and that filming began for an early 2014 release, but now that I have to organize my thoughts to write a post about K. Bell's outfit I'm just...

I basically feel like Kristen Bell when she found out that sloth was coming to her birthday party.

So during the show's run first on UPN and then on the CW, we watched V Mars evolve from outcast high schooler to super sleuth in college and now we have the extraordinary privilege of watching her work as an adult. While the plot details of the feature-length are still under wraps, what we can gauge from these shots on-set is that Veronica is all about her business.

Alexa Chung, Emma Stone, and Kristen Bell all wear red crossbody bags abroad.

It's time to say good-bye to living in swimsuits and denim shorts. Yes, folks, summer is officially over (sniffle, we know). Whether you had a vacation getaway or just chilled out at home, the sunny days are mere memories as we prepare for fall. We at MTV Style always find this transitional time of year uplifting—mostly due to New York Fashion Week, of course—and it's the thought of layered dressing and colorful scarves that get us through these almost-cool September days. But if there's one trend that allows us to capture the brightness of summer, an accessory to take with us that truly makes any drab ensemble pop, it's a red crossbody bag. Vacationing celebs like Alexa Chung, Emma Stone, and Kristen Bell all slung shades of scarlet over their monochromatic basics while overseas, and we're totally ready to steal (aka be inspired!) by this new MEGA-trend.
