Miley and Liam hit the red carpet, last night and last year.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth stepped out together on a red carpet last night for the first time in over a year, to promote Liam's new movie, Paranoia. The last time this happened was last year when the couple attended the Australians In Film Awards & Benefit Dinner. Miley wore a long-sleeve, black, cutout Zimmermann dress, and for Liam: a black Ermenegildo Zegna suit. They were newly engaged and looked almost too young to even know what marriage was—Miley had a blonde bob, and Liam was clean shaven and evening casual in an semi-unbuttoned suit shirt with no tie. Fast-forward a year and my, oh my, how things have changed.
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:

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.

Liam Hemsworth, fashion designer? If you ask his soon-to-be wife Miley Cyrus, it JUST MIGHT be happening. The singer was spotted at the Project New York Trade Show on Monday, checking out next season's clothes because- wait for it- Liam might start a clothing line! Women's Wear Daily reports that after Miley hit up collections from designers like Grey Ant, she told attendees at the show's after party that the reason she was there was because her fiance was curious about branching out into fashion. Hmm....interesting.

It's been a pretty serious couple of months for Miley Cyrus, between her engagement to boyfriend Liam Hemsworth and subsequent talk about a baby in the not too distant future, the 19 year old singer-slash-actress has been growing up fast, to say the least. Sartorially, however, Miley's been right on track, rocking short shorts, graphic rompers and even some fresh ink. According to her Twitter, Miley's been on a bit of a skateboarding jag as of late, mentioning Vans (saying they're "So dope. So Classic."), Chanel decks (uh, wut?!), and debuting a new beach babe blond hairstyle. Is Miley just getting deeper into the California lifestyle, or are we going to be adding another hyphen followed by 'skater' to this renaissance woman's pedigree?

In case you haven't heard, Miley Cyrus is engaged! Eeeee. She's going to tie the knot with Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth, and, um, we can't WAIT to see what she'll wear on the big day! We've already started speculating on her wedding gown (obvs), and looking back at her red carpet ensembles, girl has worn long white dresses a lot. Like, A. LOT. Luckily, cream is SO her color but, hmmmm, what look will she go for when she exchanges nuptials? If she goes for the boho-chic feel, she'll probably wear something similar to her ruffled 2009 Kids' Choice Awards ensemble. She sported a summery Sheri Bodell frock with layered silver necklaces and stacked bracelets. For her beauty game, she left her hair down and breezy with bright blue shadow on her eyes. We could TOTALLY see Miley sporting this soft and pretty ensemble if she got married on a beach sans shoes. Awww. We're tearing up just thinking about it. :')

It may seem like a regular week to some folks, but to the rest of us it's the official kick-off of The Hunger Games! (Cue dresses that magically burst into flames, a chorus of whistles, and enough bows and arrows to start a post-apocalyptic renegade Cub Scout gang.) The film—based on the popular dystopian book trilogy—opens on March 23, but Monday's mega gala premiere brought out the entire cast, not to mention hundreds of camped-out fans eager to catch a glimpse of their favorite characters from the series. Jennifer Lawrence, who plays lead character Katniss Everdeen (aka The Girl on Fire), did not disappoint as she set the black carpet ablaze in a stunning gold Prabal Gurung dress. Miley Cyrus arrived in a midriff-baring ensemble on the arm of boyfriend Liam Hemsworth, who plays Katniss's oldest friend, Gale, and Leven Rambin made quite the entrance in a fiery red Chagoury Couture gown. All in all, it was a cornucopia (pun intended) of the best in Capitol couture.

Holy Effie Trinket! It's the first photo of the ENTIRE CAST OF THE HUNGER GAMES!!! Well, at least a spread of the tributes chosen to battle for their lives in a post-apocalyptic, death-trap-laden televised event that makes up the plot of the story. (Seriously, guys, if you haven't read the trilogy by Suzanne Collins, you best get on this book biz NOW—it's so ridiculously good.) Thanks to the fine folks over at Vanity Fair, we have our first peek at the comely cast, including the love-triangle trio of Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence), Gale (Liam Hemsworth), and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) looking cozy along with Clove (Isabelle Fuhrman), Marvel (Jack Quaid), Foxface (Jacqueline Emerson), Thresh (Dayo Okeniyi), Glimmer (Leven Rambin), Cato (Alexander Ludwig), and Rue (Amandla Sternberg). Yes, they're all smiles in their finest Americana relaxed wear, but these gingham shirts and distressed denim ensembles will soon be splattered with blood. And lots of it.

• This week, it's alllll about the ladies! Kristin Cavallari showed off her ginormous engagement ring (we die), Nicki Minaj appeared on Dancing With The Stars in a shimmery gold corset by The Blonds, Katy Perry took us behind-the-scenes of her California Dreams tour, Lady Gaga had her last hurrah on Oprah in a gorge Sally LaPointe blazer, and we broke down every look from Eve's latest music video with Swizz Beatz.
• We can't forget about about the fashionable gentlemen! Ed Westwick rocked a plaid suit in ways we didn't know were possible, Panic! At The Disco's Brendon Urie has steal-worthy bow tie and suspenders style, Michael Cera used a shopping bag as an accessory and TOTALLY made it work, Chris Hemsworth and his brother Liam are equally good looking, Zombie Boy Rick Genest does, IN FACT, look hotter as a zombie, and Adam Lambert shaved off his mysterious facial hair. Sad.
• Here at MTV Style, we like weird stuff. Like, really, really weird stuff. This week we discovered: brainwave-powered cat ears, tattoos for your lips, and boots that look like Mary Janes (but aren't).
• The MTV Movie Awards are fast approaching! We know you've already been voting for your faves, but have you seen their AMAZING style? Check out the most memorable fashion moments from the Best Female Performance and Best Male Performance nominees!
• The Met Gala brought out the amazingest (and fugliest) dresses we've seen this year BY FAR. The best part? The following day when André Leon Talley put HIMSELF on his own best-dressed list. Yeah.
Have a fun weekend fashion friends!!

Most older brothers are already intimidating with their married lives and successful startup companies and fixed rate mortgages, and, like, by the time you're JUST graduating college, they're already making triple-figure salaries and you just feel kind lame and sad. But then there's Liam Hemsworth. He's the younger brother of Chris Hemsworth, who plays Thor. Like THE Thor. You know, that gigantic blockbuster movie also starring Natalie Portman that's coming out this weekend. Yeah, well, he's the ENTIRE MOVIE. That's a doozy. Suddenly, our family strife doesn't seem soooo bad, considering Liam has to follow in Chris's gigantic, viking-hammer-swinging footsteps.
But you know what? Even though Liam is six years younger than his older bro (he's only 21!), he's putting up some serious style competition. While his brother Chris dressed up in black suit, crisp white shirt, and a royal blue tie, Liam opted for something a little more West Coast cool. He wore a black tuxedo jacket, black V-neck tee, dark wash skinny jeans, brown lace-up boots, and aviator sunglasses. Both Hemsworth bros have some serious facial scruff, and we're into that, but Chris gets bonus points for the perfectly molded side swoop hair. I mean, we do appreesh Liam's wash-and-go hair, but Chris' 'do takes straight-up talent. It's super duper hard to pick a favorite because Chris is all hot and manly and appropriately overconfident in his suit, while Liam is approachable and cute and just READY TO HANG, y'know? Ughhh, this is so hard. We KNOW who Miley Cyrus would pick if she were here right now, but we can't be biased. So, we're torn. Or should we say, we're THOORRRN. Maahhahahahaha. Too much? Yes? OK, we'll stop. (Ed note: Look! We stopped. It's a Mjöllnirical! GAHAHAHAhahahhaha. Get it? Mjöllnir x miracle as a portmanteau? What?! NO, YOU'RE THE NERD.)
