Yes, crop tops are a big Spring trend.
While they can totally work (and worked like hell at Miu Miu-look at this photo of Saskia de Brauw on the runway!), we’re really, really hesitant to even bother testing one out because a trend like this just smacks of “Man, those photos are going to be humiliating in ten years.” Then again, if you can look back fondly on high school photos featuring blue lipstick, lace-up jeans, dusters and chokers–you’re a bigger person than us.

Anyone familiar with The Gloss‘ fashion coverage knows our opinion of music awards show red carpets: they are uniformly the worst.
…The thing about last night’s 2013 Billboard Music Awards? They were a different dimension of the worst. Every look was a jumble of ill-conceived ideas and bad planning.
Get ready for a few glorious pages of horrible to sublimely ridiculous red carpet moments, all in one place. Happy Monday! More
Last night, we brought you a live rundown of the MTV Movie Awards red carpet. This morning, we’re picking up the pieces–first, by sifting through all the looks to make a reasonable excuse for a best dressed list, now by picking through all the hair and makeup. Let’s do this. More
When I saw Spring Breakers last week, I came out feeling two distinct things: 1.) That is was the most thorough indictment of the American dream since The Great Gatsby, and 2.) That despite the film being rather un-subtle about explicating its themes, a whole bunch of people weren’t going to get it, and that was going to annoy the hell out of me. Unsurprisingly, some reviewers did get it while others didn’t, at all. But the person who got it the least might be Heather Long, the author of this trollsome article in The Guardian called “Spring Breakers isn’t just a terrible movie, it reinforces rape culture.” More
Did you guys see Spring Breakers yet? Boy… was it… zeitgeisty. More
The challenge in writing about the Kid’s Choice Awards–held over the weekend in LA–is that 1) we don’t mock children on the internet (even when their stylists had a big, dumb field day) and 2) we’re getting to the age where we have no fucking clue who half these people are.
Ahead, we give it out best shot with Katy Perry, Kristen Stewart, Jessica Alba, Johnny Depp and Ke$ha, sweet Ke$ha. More
Spring Breakers is a film about young women on spring break, so everybody was forced to wear bikinis to the premiere no matter what. Just kidding, I think everybody just looked kind of all right, with a few exceptions. More
Now, in case you’re thinking to yourself, “That’s such a festive look! I wonder why it’s familiar?” it may be because this look is from the collection that spawned those insanely offensive earrings. You have a great memory! Gomez (and her stylist) wisely opted not to wear those. More
“’Spring Breakers,’ which also stars James Franco, 34, as a white-trash rapper and drug dealer (just a week after he’ll be seen in Disney’s “Oz the Great and Powerful”), is “Natural Born Killers” meets an MTV reality show.”
“Spring breakers help local free pelican.” More
In the April issue of Harper’s Bazaar, former child star Selena Gomez can be seen “growing up her image,” as they say, in a very leggy editorial shot by our old pal Terry Richardson. At best, Uncle Terry’s “mainstream” photos look like perfectly serviceable fashion photography, and at worst, they look super stiff and boring, and both of those styles are showcased here. Things are further complicated by Photoshop abuse in some of the pictures. But Selena Gomez is a lovely young lady, so her cute/sexy/charismatic personality shines through nonetheless. I am even willing to overlook the fact that she claims it’s hard for her to get dates in the accompanying article. More
Every year the Oscars take place and every year so does the Vanity Fair Oscar party. Half of Hollywood shows up to the glitzy bash–often in better dresses than the ones they wore on the red carpet. More
Selena Gomez is hitting lots of red carpets lately, promoting her new film Spring Breakers, which is otherwise known as “the one where James Franco is a drug dealer and some dark shit happens because this is a Harmony Korine movie and then Skrillex plays and it’s all very zeitgeisty.” More
We were serious about the boob window, you guys. Stop it. More
James Franco is not being hilarious on purpose in the Spring Breakers trailer. It’s just that, as he is playing someone with cornrows who is on the wrong side of the law, he looks absolutely terrified in every single scene. Also, he has a grill. All of this is funny. It’s a laugh riot. Meanwhile, Selena Gomez looks like a pouty child More
