Oh Land at MTV.

Oh, Oh Land. Oh, oh, oh, oh Oh Land. Don't you just want to be best of friends with this Danish singer? She's so the girl from out of town who starts school halfway though the semester and is so nice to you in the cafeteria because she has no idea that she registers much higher on the popularity pecking order and then is STILL nice to you once she figures it all out. Plus, she doesn't even ask for her cut-up T-shirt that you borrowed back. The one that you're just WAITING on summer to bust out so all your camp friends will be SLAYED by the coolness that doesn't belong to you at all. :(

ANYWAYS, the former, formally trained ballet dancer and our current obsession has a crazy-making confidence and enigmatic charm that make rainbow colored unicorn babies with gigantic shiny eyes feel ordinary and like they have nothing interesting to say. Aaaaand if you listen to her music, from her self-titled debut album that dropped on March 15 (cop it here!), you'll totally know what we're talking about. Plus, blessedly, Oh Land's friendly enough to share her secrets on how to be so pretty. Out of the goodness of her heart. And so we don't envy rage and cry off our makeup at our desks with feeble shaking fists. Close. Call. Check her out and watch her be super diplomatic about how she feels about ballet trends.

Stock up now—tutus just might be one of the hottest trends for spring (point shoes not required). According to The New York Times, Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte (who created the costumes for Black Swan) aren’t the only designers with ballet on the brain. Pieces from the spring 2011 runway collections of Karl Lagerfeld, Alexander McQueen, and J. Mendel included everything from poufy miniskirts to shredded fabrics and feathers (sounds dancer-esque to us!). Plus, stores like Bloomingdale’s and ASOS are already selling the ballerina skirts. Not to toot our own trend-spotting horn, but we sort of saw this coming from a mile away. Remember?! And now, celebs including actress AJ Michalka, singer Katy Perry, and model Jessica Hart are rocking the tutu like it’s going out of style. But it’s not!

Lanvin for H&M.

If you love high fashion but don't regularly spend $3,000 on a single dress, you must be just as excited as we are about the Lanvin for H&M collection that's set to drop this Saturday, Nov. 20, at stores nationwide. Alber Elbaz, the creative director for Lanvin, crafted a great collection for men and women at gotta-have-it prices. The ladies' looks include dresses, jackets, and accessories in festive gem-tone colors like fuchsia, yellow, and teal. H&M is well-known for offering affordable collaboration lines from famous designers — Karl Lagerfeld and Stella McCartney previously designed collections — but the pieces are known to sell out fast, so get there early. To pass time before Saturday, check out our favorite looks from the Lanvin for H&M look book below.


We love how many colors, textures, and shapes are going on in this one outfit! That furry jacket is such a statement piece for winter, while the graphic tee is a closet staple that can be worn alone in the summer, or under blazers and cardigans in the cooler months. Plus, we like how the model dresses it up by layering a bunch of necklaces over it — great styling idea.

Lanvin for H&M T-shirt: $39.95, Skirt: $59.95, Jacket: $149, Shoes: $99, Necklace: $29.95, Belt (worn as necklace): $19.95, Sunglasses: $19.95.

This one-shoulder ruffle dress is the perfect party dress, and the yellow color just pops. Take a cue from this model and rock the frock with fun, colorful earrings and layered bracelets.

This is our favorite image from the look book! As we've noted earlier, Rihanna and Katy Perry are just a couple stars who've brought the tutu look back, and we think this Lanvin for H&M dress is the prettiest and most elegant tutu we've seen yet. Plus, how stunning are those multicolor pumps?

We love a good tutu. And we're fully convinced that tutu-wearing is a rising trend that only the bold and beautiful can pull off well. So far, we've seen tutus on Pixie Lott, Rihanna, and Katy Perry — all performers. But last night, actress Christina Ricci joined the trendsetting bunch when she attended the Library Lions Benefit in New York last night looking ballerina-inspired in a lovely Marchesa tutu design from the label's fall 2010 collection. While the tutu looked great on her, we thought the tights were a little too overwhelming for the delicate look. But it was a tutu nonetheless — so success!

+ Would wear a tutu like Christina Ricci?

Katy Perry and Rihanna are two style stars spearheading the rise of something truly fabulous — the tutu. We spotted many ballerina skirts like these over the summer, and these two ladies/BFFs are continuing the trend! Katy Perry performed in Munich over the weekend wearing a sparkly pink leotard with a super-low neckline and hot pink tutu pinned on her backside. Meanwhile, Rihanna wore a poufy white full-skirt tutu to a Topshop styling session in London on Monday, which she paired with a black top and a pair of brown pumps with socks. These two pals both looked fab in their tutus, but in our opinion, Rihanna wore it better! She really mixed and matched her shapes well, picking a tighter fitting shirt with the loose, voluminous skirt. But what do you think?

+ Which tutu look do you like better — Katy Perry or Rihanna?

Katy Perry in tutus on August 27 and July 30.

We're on HIGH ALERT for ballerina tutus this summer, and Katy Perry is proving to be quite the tulle collector. Her tutu love began earlier this summer, when she wore a white one on July 30 for her performance at the MTV World Stage Live in Malaysia. Then, just this morning, she wore a pink one for her performance on the Today show. But the best part? Katy not only knows how to rock a tutu ballerina-style, but she's sly enough to actually pair the look with BALLET flats, for a ballerina look from head to toe.

Tutus are on the rise! If you didn't think so after seeing Pixie Lott, Natalie Portman, and Katy Perry all wearing a tulle floaties around their hips earlier this summer, and Madonna even put a tutu in her new Material Girl collection also, then let Mexican singer Dulce Maria try to convince you. The 24-year-old singer — who was recently voted one of People En Espanol's Most Beautiful of the Year and has worked with Akon in the past — wore a blue tutu over a white leotard for a performance on Telemundo's Descontrol program yesterday. So, in case you had any doubts, YES, TUTUS ARE HAPPENING. And, surely, there are more to come. You better believe we're on the lookout.

And now, a public service announcement, from your shopping-obsessed friends:

Madonna and daughter Lourdes’s Material Girl clothing line just dropped, and it's online for your shopping glory. There’s material here for every kind of girl, if you know what we mean: Boyfriend shirts, studded tees, destroyed denim leggings, and some awesome handbags for good measure. There’s even a tiered tulle tutu-esque skirt ($22), which we’ve seen on everyone from Katy Perry to Natalie Portman. Plus, at around $20 per item, it's guilt-free spending. Planning to scoop some pieces up? We are, and we're not even teenagers! Happy shopping.

Is Katy Perry a California Girl turned ballerina? It certainly looked that way when she rocked out at MTV World Stage Live in a white ballerina number — complete with leotard and tutu! — on Saturday in Kuaka Lumpur, Malaysia. Silver sparkles and studs gave the gorgeous white outfit some bling, and Katy even performed atop a banana split ... YUM. But we're not used to seeing so much sashay-ready wear on stage, as last year was dominated by gymnastics-inspired spandex (think Gaga, Miley, Rihanna, Beyonce). Could it be — are tutus the new leotards? Read More...

Singer Pixie Lott been all up on our radar lately. She opened for Rihanna's Last Girl on Earth tour this spring, and she's always keeping things fresh with her punk-slash-girly style. Like last night, when she wore a short-short-SHORT floral-print dress with a bustier top and tutu-style skirt while performing at the iTunes Festival in London. She accessorized her poufy skirt with combat boots, which makes her look sort of looks like Alice in Wonderland gone grunge.

+ Would you wear this dress?

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