The AMC drama Mad Men may be entering its final season, but its raved-about style is primed to live on. So instead of bidding a (tear-filled) goodbye to your friends at Sterling Cooper & Partners, take cues from these put-together characters and pay homage to their looks in your own wardrobe.

It’s been 25 years since Richard Gere courted Julia Roberts on the big screen. And finally, the rom-com adaptation of your dreams is being realized. Pretty Woman is being made into a musical.

Just this week, the film’s director announced he’d secured rights to bring it to the stage. Right now, details are limited. But you can bet I’ll wear thigh-high boots (à la Hollywood Boulevard) to see the scripted act in NYC.

Prepare to temporarily bid your Netflix adieu. Next month, Dior and I will give us a behind-the-scenes look at the exclusive world of haute couture.

The documentary follows Belgian designer Raf Simons in his first few months as creative director at Christian Dior. “I want to have quite a radical approach in terms of modernizing it,” he says of the storied French house.

And since Simons had only eight weeks to complete his first collection, Dior and I promises to deliver the drama – ahem, glamour.

What comes to mind when you hear the word “Ghostbusters”? For me, it’s four infamous male comedians, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, and Hi-C Ecto-Cooler. But come next summer, that’s all about to change.

Paul Feig (you may know him as the director of Bridesmaids) tweeted confirmation that his new version of the 1984 classic is on the way. What’s the big deal? He’ll be switching it up with an all-female cast featuring none other than Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy. But the laughs won’t stop there. Expect to also see Saturday Night Live standouts Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon rounding out the foursome.

Just one question remains: who you gonna call? Your girlfriends. Catch the flick with them on July 22, 2016.

You may recognize Léa Seydoux as a frequent star in Prada’s campaigns. And with rumors circling that she signed on as the next Bond girl, expect to see a lot more from this French actress.

This coveted role wouldn’t be Léa’s first experience in film. The 29-year-old has starred in Blue Is the Warmest ColorPrada’s Resort 2012 campaign, the Prada Candy fragrance campaign, and Miu Miu’s Resort 2015 campaign. As for her frequent collaborator, designer Miuccia Prada? She, too, has experience working in the film industry, having crafted costumes for Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of The Great Gatsby.

The 24th Bond movie won’t begin production for another six weeks, but Léa will undergo costume tests in the meantime. Since she’s rarely seen wearing labels other than Prada or Miu Miu, my fingers are crossed that her wardrobe is designed by Miuccia herself.

As if we couldn’t get enough of Kate Moss this month, Gucci has named her the leading lady in its latest campaign. In the clip, the 40-year-old supermodel dodges paparazzi while donning the Fall 2014 collection’s iconic Jackie bag – something I feel she’s done before, a time or two.

The one-minute film begins with Kate exiting a black sedan, cycling through a series of 60s-inspired outfits from the Italian house’s Fall 2014 collection. Accompanied by an extremely handsome man, she makes her way through an airport with the Jackie Bag, a favorite accessory of Jackie O (and appropriately named after her). The famous carryall was resurrected in 2009 by Gucci’s creative director, Frida Giannini, who chose Kate as the muse for this short film based on her free-spirited, trendsetter attitude.

Is the star of the show Kate the Great? Or is it the historic, soft leather hobo hanging from her arm? Either way, grab the popcorn. This is an ad well worth the watch.

I’d guess that fashion lovers, myself included, are the second-largest group bolstering The Hunger Games, following the tween market. The movie franchise caught my attention with its physics-defying fashion designer Cinna (played by Lenny Kravitz), Alexander McQueen gown cameos, and Katniss’s oh-so-cool cable knit scarf. Well, it turns out the series’ fictional setting, Panem, is just as fascinated with its citizens’ wardrobe choices as I am. The evidence? Capitol Couture, an online fashion magazine from the ruling district.

A clever marketing ploy for the upcoming November 21 release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, Capitol Couture covers the latest trends in Panem using pieces from real-world designers. Front and center are “living portraits” of characters Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) and Johanna Mason (Jena Malone), both wearing all white as part of a Panem campaign. Peeta sports a shirt and shoes designed by Maison Martin Margiela with a paper collar from David Mason, while Johanna accessorizes with Alexander Wang shoes and hand-carved marble bangles by Chen Chen and Kai Williams.

When the fashion is this good, it’s easy to get mentally trapped in Panem. Next time I need an escape from reality, I’ll be perusing Capitol Couture for styling tips from the future.

I was only a year old when the movie When Harry Met Sally first debuted on the big screen on July 14, 1989. It’s true, I could barely hold my own bottle. But that didn’t stop me from, years later, sitting down with friends to watch one of the most influential rom-coms in pop culture history. And, yes, we’re still watching.

As if we didn’t already love Clueless enough, director Amy Heckerling recently divulged to Vulture that she is bringing her cult-favorite 90s film to Broadway. Working as hard as Cher did to make over Tai, Amy is debating who should tackle the leading role of the movie’s beloved Beverly Hills princess.

Kay Perry

Amy told Vulture, “Katy Perry has expressed interest, and I love her to death.” While I’d love to see the doe-eyed singer on stage, the director also threw another rising star’s name in the ring, adding: “Maybe Iggy [Azalea] wants to do it!” After all, Iggy did pull inspiration from Cher and the gang in the music video for her chart-topping hit, “Fancy.” While the cast gets sorted out, I’ll be anxiously awaiting the dance routines that accompany my favorite scenes.
