Mischa Barton had fashion lovers scratchin their heads at the 8th Annual BritWeek Launch Party in Los Angeles last night. The actress wore a Teca by Helo Rocha dress that managed to be both provocative and matronly at the same time. The loose, long-sleeved maxi hung loose around her frame, but the sheer, plunging neckline showed off lots of cleavage.
Do you think Mischa's look is hot or not?
If we saw Jared Leto, we'd have a million questions to ask him (#1 will you marry me?!). But we wanted to know what our favorite celebs would ask the hottest man on the planet right now.
If you met Jared Leto, what would you ask him?
Is there anything better than high-fashion and Disney characters? I'm going to go out on a limb and say "no." It's always fun to see classic childhood favorite princesses and villians reinterpreted in different ways.
Artist Shasiiko Anti reimagined some of the most popular animated heroines like Cinderella, and their nemeses, like Jafar. This particular set is so fun because it really changes the look of the characters, but totally keeps the spirit intact. Plus, it's totally fashion inspo. Give me Jasmine's outfit now pleeeassee!

Coachella is the place people go to show off their wildest styles. The music festival has single-handedly made it appropriate for people to wear flower crowns is public. So it's no surprise to see celebrities rocking crazy boho fashion. However, Kendall and Kylie Jenner may have taken it to another level this year.
The sisters showed up in Indio, CA rocking coordinating looks that combined bohemian, goth and Indian-inspired fashion. Both wore tiny black shorts with different variations of strapless crop tops. Kendall wore a bindi and covered up in a floor length lace jacket, while Kylie added some edge with combat boots and a studded fanny pack.
Kendall seemed to stick with this aesthetic for the entirety of her trip. She also rocked a huge nose ring, connected to her earring, on another day at the festival.
What do you think of this style on the sisters? Hot or not?
Lindsay Lohan stepped out in this musical number in New York recently. The reality star rocked a piano key sparkly shift dress with knee high socks, booties and a blazer. She topped off the over-the-top outfit with a side braid and floppy hat.
Are you a fan of Lindsay's look?
Miley Cyrus is on the cover of yet another magazine. This time, she's gracing the pages of Elle. All that's been released is the cover, so we don't know what sorts of gems are inside this issue. However, we do know that Miley is wearing a Marc Jacobs tunic and pants on the cover. The wardrobe choice is fitting. The pieces are from the designer's latest collection, which Miley is the face of.
Are you a fan of Miley's latest cover?
Free People's latest campaign is gorgeous, genius and a perfect match. Freida Pinto, arguably one of the most gorgeous women in the world, models the brand's clothes in her home country of India. The combination of Freida's beauty, the culture of the country and the bohemian clothes evoke laid back, warm-weather feelings.
There's even a short film that goes along with the ads.
While the campaign takes place in a land far away from the deserts and fields of the season's music festivals, it's clear that this collection will be perfect for Coachella and the like.
Do you think Freida and Free People are a good match?
The latest high fashion trend... lives in a pineapple under the sea? That's right, in it's ever-evolving parody of itself, the fashion world is now getting its inspiration from SpongeBob Square Pants.
Rita Ora rocked a sweater from Moschino's latest collection (you know, the one that also made the french fry phone case that Miley Cyrus loves?), made to look like Mr. Square Pants himself. She even completed the outfit with some spongey looking pumps.
Then, Pharrell rocked a yellow onesie with the cartoon's face emblazoned on it to the Kids' Choice Awards.
On one hand, it's great to see the fashion industry having a lot fun. Because that's what style should really be about, right? On the other hand, it does add to the divide between fashion and wearability. I mean... there aren't too many "real people" who could rock looks like this.
Do you think this trend is hot or not?
Khloe recently showed off her svelte frame in a black high cut swimsuit on vacation in Thailand. The look is similar to the crop top/bodysuit ensemble Miley wore in her "We Can't Stop" video. But, Khloe's in in the opposite color and reps the opposite side of the country.
Both looks are by Stampd, and Miley's "Dope" swimsuit she wore in the video is in the same aesthetic. The sporty, 90s style is very trendy right now, and will probably be all over the place this summer.
So whose team are you on? Miley's or Khloe's?
Nicole Richie never misses a fashion beat. The designer, 32, recently dyed her hair lavender, making it officially the most pervasive trend of the season (everyone at SXSW had purple hair!).
Nicole recently posted a picture of herself and husband Joel Madden on Instagram and her hair and styling makes me so happy it is officially Spring. Nicole's coif is sure to be hairspo for every girl on the planet. She captioned the photo "Springtime Daydream" and she couldn't be more right; It's downright magical! The combination of the whimsical color, the romantic styling, and topped off with a floral crown and formal ensemble is too much for me to take! I want to go to there!
