Hollywood's best and brightest were out in full force last night for the annual Academy Awards—and while we didn't get everything we'd asked for on our Dream Oscars Wishlist (where was Ryan Gosling as a nearly-nude substitute emcee?!), we did get an eyeful of some very pretty people in some breathtakingly gorgeous formal wear! A whole slew of our favorite celebs paused and posed as they made their way to the evening's parties, from Elton John's viewing party to Vanity Fair's post-ceremony fete.
Among the notable subjects? A bunch of cute couples—including Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth, who seemed to get caught snuggling every time the cameras turned their way, and "Vampire Diaries" co-stars Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder, who looked decidedly cozy. Plus, "Glee" pals Ashley Fink and Chris Colfer, who look to be...singing. (No surprise there.) And although she was flying solo in her photo (sorry shippers, there was no sign of maybe-boyfriend Zac Efron at last night's festivities), Lily Collins made for a seriously pretty picture in her stunner of a dress.
She's the fairest of them all and a darn good tour guide. MTV News recently had the pleasure of visiting the fantastical "Mirror Mirror" set, with none other than Snow White herself (a.k.a. adorable actress Lily Collins) as our hostess. Though the fairytale flick doesn't hit theaters until March 30, we're giving you a sneak peek of the snowy landscape and comfy quarters you'll spy in Tarsem Singh's eye-popping extravaganza.
Our magical visit began in the enchanted forest, where Lily cautioned against eating the snow—a practice we've long since abandoned after moving to New York—seeing as it's actually salt.
"The dwarves' tree house is somewhere in these woods," she explained. "The majority of the action takes place here. And I'm in big ball gowns running around in this woods. I'm fighting with Armie [Hammer]."
It's a tough job, but somebody (insanely good looking and ridiculously in shape) has to do it. I'm talking about the risky business of secret agentry, which takes center stage in this weekend's action-packed rom-com "This Means War." Delicious duo Chris Pine and Tom Hardy play best friends and CIA operatives battling over the affections of pretty Reese Witherspoon, unloading an arsenal of treacherous, sabotage-y tactics on each other along the way.
Now, Chris and Tom are hardly the first sexy secret agents to grace the silver screen. In fact, cinema history is littered with spies so bodacious that it'd surely blow their covers in real life. (I mean, operatives are supposed to blend in, right?) From Daniel Craig as James Bond (praise be to blue booty shorts!) to Angelina Jolie as Evelyn Salt, these actors are armed, dangerous and looking damn fine while doing it.

American audiences have to wait until March to witness Robert Pattinson in all of his philandering glory in the Guy de Maupassant adaptation, "Bel Ami," but those lucky Germans are getting an early taste thanks to the movie's debut at the Berlin International Film Festival. Robert and co-star Christina Ricci were on hand today for a press conference and photocall in support of the soon-to-be released period drama.
Sporting an Asian-influenced jacket and the buzz cut he debuted earlier this year at the People's Choice Awards, the 25-year-old greeted fans, posed with his leading lady and fielded a variety of questions, including why he cut off his signature locks.
Bittersweet memories are all we're taking with us after last night's Grammy Awards...well, okay, bittersweet memories and one serious scrapbook of photos from the star-studded evening. Our favorite celebs were out in droves at the music industry's biggest awards show, to celebrate some well-deserved wins, cheer each other on in pitch-perfect performances and remember the gone-too-soon Whitney Houston.
Among the gallery of great moments from the show is Taylor Swift, who stood at the summit of a country prop mountain for her amazing performance of "Mean," after getting a great introduction from The Civil Wars (and just one day before premiering their "Safe and Sound" music video right here on MTV tonight!). And that was just the start of an emotional rollercoaster of an evening; there was some serious happiness on display from Adele, who flashed a beautiful smile as she took home the awards for Best Song, Best Pop Performance and Album of the Year...and some definite sads to be had following Jennifer Hudson's heartbreaking tribute to Whitney. (What? No, we're not crying, we just have something in our eye.)
With each new publicity image released from the upcoming fairy tale re-imagining "Snow White and the Huntsman," we never know which Kristen Stewart we're going to get. Pretty? Powerful? Poised? Yes, we're kinda getting whiplash, to quote a certain young actress we know. One thing we are sure of: Today's still (released via the film's Facebook page) lands squarely in the "fierce" rather than "fair" column.
Here we see our raven-haired heroine wielding a shield in one hand and (what we assume from repeated trailer viewings) a sword in the other (that flaming pile of whatever is totally obscuring our view). Kristen's clearly got her eye on something, and we're just glad it isn't us because girl looks downright ferocious.
Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with staff members. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that's why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.
Nina Dobrev is a baller. Literally. The "Vampire Diaries" starlet took a short vacation from Mystic Falls on Sunday to suit up for DirecTV's Celebrity Beach Bowl, a friendly flag football game which preceded the Super Bowl in Indianapolis.
The annual event typically draws a slew of celebrities and former football greats, and Nina wasn't the only "Vampire Diaries" actress in attendance. Her co-star Candice Accola (a.k.a. Caroline Forbes) hit the field for the opposing Team Spike, which also included "True Blood" hunks Joe Manganiello and Mechad Brooks, Jordin Sparks and Neil Patrick Harris.

It’s even scarier than Voldemort: Daniel Radcliffe’s first post-"Potter" film, "The Woman in Black," opens today, and we’re all pretty psyched for the dark drama. Even the spooky rhyming commercial advertisements are terrifying—there is going to be some serious watching-between-your-fingers, feet-up-on-the-chair action going on in theaters. But while Daniel may appear terrified of the "Woman in Black," we know a few women in black who are anything but frightening. We've rounded up some of our favorite celebrity fashionistas, who show us that basic black is sexy—not scary. See our entire gallery by clicking on the image below!
From Angelina Jolie’s iconic dominatrix-inspired leather ensemble to Lucy Hale and Selena Gomez’s recent playful cut outs, these starlets are conjuring up plenty of accolades. Even sparkle and fun country cutie Taylor Swift knows that when you want to go high glam, you go with black, as she did in a dramatic gown with a plunging neckline during the 2009 Grammy festivities. Then there's perennial red-carpet darling Lea Michele, who may be known for her bold fashion choices but couldn't resist the lure of becoming a woman in black when she slipped on a lace design with a sheer overlay, perfectly modeling a Karl Lagerfeld number during Paris Fashion Week—so incredibly chic.
This one is for all of our fellow Matthew Lewis (a.k.a. Neville Longbottom) fans—those who have been on board since the beginning after being drawn in by Matthew's roly poly adorableness at age 12 in "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," and those who jumped on the bandwagon in a big way after seeing photos of Matthew all grown-up at last year's premiere of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2."
We've lost count of the number of "Matt Lewis Is A Total Hottie"-themed fan pages that have been created since, but we're doing our part as well. MTV News was lucky enough to get our hands and eyes on a batch of brand new photos of the one-time Hump Day Hottie looking very grown-up and smoldery.
The photos were taken by acclaimed London-based photographer Idil Sukan, who was the official photographer for the British Independent Film Awards and has shot a slew of popular British stars, like The Wanted and Rebecca Ferguson. Just look at how serious and stylish the 22-year-old is! So thoughtful and focused, it's like he's staring into our souls. Or thinking really hard about something important like world peace or saving kittens.
This morning, the internet fairy brought us the best gift ever: some sneak-peek pics of Ryan Kwanten's upcoming appearance on "New Girl"! And if you've been missing Ryan's
glistening pecs adorable face in these long, cold months without "True Blood," then take note: Fox released a whopping 10 (TEN!) delicious stills from the show, which depict the actor in various stages of flirtation with Zooey Deschanel.
The bad news: He's wearing clothes in all of them. (Boo!)
The good news: There's not a T-shirt in the universe that could hide the glory of those beautiful biceps. (YAY.)
