Harmony Korine, the auteur behind Spring Breakers and Kids, directed Dior's latest fragrance ad. The commercial features a model wandering around a decked-out mansion before stumbling across a secret garden where a heavily remixed version of Die Antwoord's "Enter the Ninja" drops in. The last time Korine was tapped to direct a fashion film was 2011, for Proenza Schouler. It was widely panned.

Korine's films tackle issues like poverty, mental illness, and dysfunctional families. He isn't a traditional filmmaker: His work is non-linear, experimental, and surrealist with elements of Vaudevillian minstrelsy, dark humor, and absurdism. In other words, he's never been one for mainstreamers, so it's interesting to see him so restrained. In honor of Harmony Korine, here's a roundup of other outlandish fashion films. This one's for the weirdos. Mazel.

JULIETTE LEWIS & DAFT PUNK X GAP

Let's start off simple. In 2001, when the only songs by French robotic duo Daft Punk on your radar was the house favorite "One More Time" or the meme bait "Harder Better Faster Stronger", they were tapped by Gap along with Juliette Lewis to shill jeans. Oh 2001, what a year to be alive.

As you know, the #WORLDSMOSTTALKEDABOUTWEDDING is approaching. But for all that’s being said about it, we know surprisingly little about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s upcoming marriage extravaganza. While rumors have been swirling, we can glean that wedding guests are meeting in Paris and then mayyyybe flying from there to Florence where the pair could marry at Fort Belvedere. On Friday, there will be a brunch hosted by Valentino and covered by Vogue then followed by a rehearsal dinner. The next day, Kimye will be officially wed. Everything else we can only guess, from the soundtrack—aside from rumored guest of honor Lana Del Rey—to the vows which *fingers crossed* will be answered with “uh-huh honey.” We’re more preoccupied with the clothing though because when Kanye’s involved, that’s the main attraction. So, we did some sleuthing based on the couple’s whereabouts in Paris this past week and deduced all of the possibilities. Let’s get into it.

SAINT LAURENT

When: May 19, 2014
Where: 53 Avenue Montaigne
What it might mean for the wedding: Perhaps Kanye is trying to be “the bigger person” by extending a wedding invite to the fashion house’s head Hedi Slimane. Bonus points for Kanye if that invite comes without stipulation that Slimane can’t attend any other wedding this season. (After Slimane once told Kanye he could attend Saint Laurent’s show only if he didn’t attend any others that season, Kanye was inspired to write “I Am a God.”)

VERSACE

Kanye West, Kim Kardashian

When: May 19, 2014
Where: 45 Avenue Montaigne
What it might mean for the wedding: Donatella Versace will probably be in attendance. The instinct here is to think that she’d be designing for the couple, their guests of honor, or even the place settings—Versace home is decadent like no other—but considering Kanye’s strict adherence to minimalism as of late, I’m going to rule that out since Versace’s aesthetic is all flash. More likely, they’ll be extending an invitation to Donatella to be their guest for this intimate weekend in reciprocation for her letting the Kardashian clan stay at her Miami home for a week this past March.

Selena Gomez is best friends with Taylor Swift, and Karlie Kloss is best friends with Taylor Swift (girl obviously has a lotta best friends), but last night, it seemed as though tangential best friends Selena and Karlie got ready together—y'know, like best friends do—before the American Ballet Theatre Gala in New York City.

You know when you go somewhere fancy and you have no idea what to wear so you make sure all your pals are wearing something similar, just in case? That way even if you're not dressed quite right, you're all not dressed quite right? It was probably exactly like that. We think.

If you ever went to Disney World as a little kid, then you likely know the unbridled joy of the beloved character's breakfast. As you and your family ordered eggs and bacon, Disney favorites would walk around the restaurant, allowing for photo ops and scribbling signatures in autograph books. It was kind of like meeting your idols (at an age when idolizing cartoons wasn't totally cray). As an adult, one might liken it to Rihanna's first few days of Paris Fashion Week, where she basically buddied up with ALL the best designers for a monster collection of framable photos. (It should also be noted that Rih managed to wear a different shade of lipstick in every single shot, which is just, like, wow. *bows down*)

Oooh, it's so shiny! Rihanna strutted around SoHo for the launch of her MAC Viva Glam line last night, but honestly, her outfit kinda stole the show. She boldly combined a sparkly purple blazer with an equally sparkly "dream" slogan tee and ruffled navy pencil skirt. That outfit + a gold lamé kerchief = major flight attendant vibes. We have no doubt RiRi could have directed her fair share of traffic in this getup...mainly because EVERY surface was reflective.

While the Grammys might not be held as sartorially high as the silver screen’s awards shows, what they lack in couture, they make up for in conversation-starting left-field looks, daring hairstyles, and crazy nails. This year there was a little more couture than usual, but also a greater discrepancy between those wearing it and their dressed-down counterparts. (We see you, Pharrell.) But that’s OK, because the artists who got a little more fancy than everyone else stood out (for the better) that much more.

TAYLOR SWIFT IN GUCCI

Not shockingly, Taylor Swift did not go bold this year—or veer away from her now-signature white/silver palette. We get it, Swift: You are obsessed with Madonna’s “Ray of Light.” Or you want to look like one. Whatever the case, while she stuck with her usual color choice, she at least toughened up her look a little thanks to Gucci’s chain mail gown, a nice risk to see and surely not a comfortable one.

'Tis the season for golden statuettes and designer gowns! We've gotten a little spoiled over the past couple of weeks in terms of red carpet looks, and luckily for us, the appearances at tonight's SAG Awards did NOT disappoint. We got our fair share of classic formalwear, glamorous gowns, and dapper tuxedos, but there were also some fashion risk-takers who completely stole the show. Take a look at some of our highlights, and let us know which ones are your faves!

JENNIFER LAWRENCE IN DIOR

Let's all say it together: WOWZA. After her polarizing Golden Globes dress (Is it chic? Is it a ripoff of The Little Mermaid?), we're pretty sure Jennifer Lawrence's 2014 SAG Awards dress will earn 100%-positive reviews. Her couture Dior gown was head-to-toe sequins, sequins, and more sequins, and she pulled it off like a BOSS. Seriously, who else could look that good in THICK, horizontal blue-and-purple stripes? And since the sparkling number was so dazzling on its own, Jennifer was wise to pick just one piece of statement jewelry—in this case, a pair of long gold and purple drop earrings. Her overall look might have still been a little reminiscent of mermaids (sparkling scales and whatnot), but in a much, much better way IMHO.

While the People's Choice Awards may have ~officially~ kicked off the 2014 awards season, tonight's Golden Globes really catapulted the year of red carpet fashion into high gear. We pulled out six well-heeled ladies from the 2014 PCAs, but now, we're bringing you a list of 10 for the Globes (though, TBH, we were tempted to just crown Lupita Nyong'o THE best dressed and go home, because girl SHUT IT DOWN).

LUPITA NYONG'O IN RALPH LAUREN

I mean, do I really need to explain this decision? The 12 Years A Slave actress showed up EARLY to the Golden Globes red carpet wearing Ralph Lauren, and even well before most of the attendees arrived, she had clinched her position as the best dressed lady of the night. It's solid but not boring thanks to that almost-neon red hue. It's body-conscious without looking grossly painted on, and those classic RL clean lines are softened by her warm, beaming smile. With its straight off-the-shoulder neckline and long cape, the gown is definitely fashion forward, but this is also 100% the kind of timeless ensemble that we'll be looking back fondly on for YEARS. (P.S. If this is what she pulls out for the Globes, we can't WAIT to see what she whips out for the Oscars.)

In the past year alone, Jennifer Lawrence won an Oscar, starred in the second installment of the blockbuster Hunger Games series, and became everyone's favorite imaginary BFF. She's refreshingly candid, totally poised, and, thanks to a little help from her stylist, Rachel Zoe, one of the most style-savvy ladies in the game. "I really would not call myself a fashion icon," she told E!. "I would call myself somebody who gets dressed by professionals. [It's like], 'Dance, monkey, dance' right on the red carpet.' I would call me more of a monkey." LOL, girl, you so humble.

Even though she hasn't quite nailed down a signature look yet (unless, of course, you count her racks and racks of Dior as a face of the brand), J. Law continues to kill it with risk-taking gowns, two-pieces, and a variety of silhouettes. In honor of her MAY-JAH year in both film and fashion, we've rounded up our top 10 favorite J. Law style moments of 2013.

JANUARY 11

She doesn't often do graphic prints, but when she does, she does them with really cool matching shoes. In January, back when most of us were reluctantly pulling on parkas and sweater tights, Jennifer showed up at the 2013 AFI Awards in BARE LEGS and a colorful, figure-flattering sheath dress with metallic tweed stripes by Prabal Gurung. Her coordinating cap-toe pumps, which boasted a mirrored heel, mesh straps, and neon-pink piping, came from Gurung's line with Casadei. Sidebar: Remember when her hair was SO LONG?

Angel Haze Grimes Harper's Bazaar

Listen, sometimes we just want to see some of our favorite musicians and actresses decked out in THE coolest couture duds, OK? Like, is that so much to ask? Apparently not! Former Vogue Paris EIC Carine Roitfeld made our dreams a reality in the latest issue of Harper's Bazaar by choosing 20 ladies to be featured in her "Singular Beauties" spread. Basically, she rounded up some of our faves (think: Dakota Fanning and Lily Collins) as "an homage to the diversity of women," which was photographed by Mr. Karl Lagerfeld himself. One of our top looks was definitely from Grimes who mixed high and low fashion in the best way possible. She sported a floral Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane frock with furry Fendi shoes and a backward purple snapback. She turned up her beauty game by wearing a dark burgundy lip against her bright red hair. Rapper Angel Haze worked it OUT in a killer menswear-inspired ensemble. She wore a Giorgio Armani shirt and overalls (!!!) paired with Lanvin oxfords. Oh, and that yellow fur jacket she's standing on? That's Versace.

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