Emma WatsonIf you were hoping to kick off your weekend with a lovely, multi-page spread of Emma Watson wearing some stunning, sustainably produced gowns, then congratulations: Your bizarrely specific dreams have just come true! Net-a-Porter's online magazine has the actress on model duty for Livia Firth's design challenge to create five ethical dresses.

For Emma, zipping into these beautiful looks was a no-brainer; ethical and eco-conscious fashion is one of the issues she's most passionate about. As she explained, "Maybe there would be fewer problems if we were really conscious of where and how things were made."

Nothing says "fall" like a sleek black dress and a fiery pout—and despite being quite awhile out of the public eye, Kate Bosworth apparently hasn't forgotten how to work these things like the stylish pro that she is. The actress was on the scene this week for the opening of a Bvlgari Retrospective at the M.H. de Young Memorial Museum, in an outfit so perfect that we were reminded, once again, of why we wish she'd come out of hiding more often.

In this case, it was the flawless accessorizing of her bodycon black dress that kicked this look into Style Superstar territory: In addition to rocking a flawless fit and understated black pumps, Kate opted for soft, shiny waves, a hot pink lip and sparkling diamonds on her wrists and ears (which was only right for a Bvlgari event, of course.) Even for a woman who's known for looking her best in sophisticated, understated frocks, this look is a cut above.

There's just one thing more fun than a sneaky, peeky preview of new CW spin-off series "The Originals"...and that's a sneaky, peeky preview of new CW spin-off series "The Originals" in which all the men are dressed in super-sexy 1800s garb. Joseph Morgan and Charles Michael Davis wearing ruffly shirts, open at the throat to expose some beefy manflesh? Yes, please, thank you, and goodnight: We're going to go enjoy an, ahem, better look at these stills in a more private location.

For the uninitiated, "The Originals" takes place in "The Vampire Diaries" universe, exploring the sordid, sexy backstories of the series' original Mikaelson vampires. And in this peep at the second episode, titled "House of the Rising Son," we're promised a long, interesting look at the family's dynamics dating back to the early 19th century—when Klaus was still a bad, bad boy, Rebekah was still frustrated by her brother's troublemaking ways and Marcel was still a stone fox with a penchant for shirtlessness and swordplay. Meow.

The twerking and tonguing were just the beginning, y'all: Miley Cyrus is actually on fire, and she's not slowing down until she's become the artist she's always dreamed of. That's the takeaway from this trailer for upcoming documentary, "Miley: The Movement," which follows Miley backstage, on tour, into the recording studio—and onto a couch for a little bit of snuggle-up time with Mama Cyrus, of course, because the girl is still a human being who needs love, too.

This documentary is a behind-the-scenes look at Miley's quest to redefine her image, starting off with a bang (also known as "the twerk heard 'round the world") at this year's Video Music Awards. And if that moment shocked you to the point where you're still talking about it, well, that's exactly what the woman intended:

"You're always going to make people talk," she explains. "You might as well make them talk for two weeks, rather than two seconds."

And without spoiling too much, let's just say that the revolution has gained another leader: The studio has just announced that Patina Miller is officially on board in the role of Commander Paylor.

Those who've read Suzanne Collins' books will recognize Paylor's name as belonging to the smart, young, authoritative leader who plays a key role in the Districts' uprising, along with...well, some other stuff.

40 Days of DatingIf you've spent any time over the past few weeks embroiled in the crazy designer drama of 40 Days of Dating, then this news will come as no surprise: Warner Bros. has snagged the rights to make a movie based on the project, according to a report from Deadline. (And if you haven't been reading 40 Days of Dating, beware, it is an addictive web of internet madness that'll eat your life and rip off all your old romantic scabs and make you feel a lot of feels about FEELINGS.)

Forget the last lingering warmth of summer or the crisp chill of fall; this year, the best YA romance is happening when temperatures drop below zero. Just look at the ice cold hotness of this new, exclusive trailer for "Frozen", the sexy new fantasy from husband-and-wife writing team Melissa de la Cruz and Michael Johnston, and tell us you're not ready to snuggle up with a warm blanket, a hot toddy, and some steeeeeamy forbidden brouhaha with a snowshoeing mercenary.

But for Nat, a blackjack dealer with a secret, the uncertain wilderness outside the city lines may be her only way to safety. Enter Wes, the leader of a team of mercenaries who promises to show her the way. Will they make it? And more importantly, will they make out? The mystery is killing us, but we'll only have to wait one more day to find out whether Nat and Wes become a couple, or a couple of human popsicles; "Frozen" is on sale September 17.

This Song Will Save Your LifeElise Dembowski, the protagonist of Leila Sales' new novel, "This Song Will Save Your Life," is the kind of clueless loser who'll make you cringe—and depending upon your personal high school history, it might be with recognition. Sneered at, bullied and relentlessly rejected, Elise is a social pariah thanks to having committed teen life's one unforgivable sin: wanting people to like her.

But when this story begins, Elise is sure that she's got it all figured out. All this time, she's been targeted for sticking out; clearly, what she needs is to reject her uniqueness and fit in, right? [Ed note: Ugh, no, wrong. SO wrong. But there's nothing we can do to stop her.] Determined to make her sophomore year the one in which she's finally be accepted, Elise studies up on popular culture, buys all the right clothes and stows the physical evidence of her former life as a weirdo outlier in an industrial-strength trash bag.

Which means that when her plan crashes, burns and explodes into itty-bitty humiliating little pieces for good measure, she's left with nothing—not even herself.
