The News: Jessica Chastain Cast As Marilyn Monroe?
We hear that the Zero Dark Thirty star is in talks to take the title role in Blonde, the new flick based upon Joyce Carol Oates’ 700-page eponymous novel about the one and only Marilyn Monroe.

The Look: 
WeWoreWhat x Addison
Oh hello, perfect spring wardrobe. When I got a sneak peek of WeWoreWhat's new collaboration with Addison last night, I crushed--hard--on Danielle Bernstein's modern adaptations of biker jackets, boyfriend shorts, and overalls. But after flipping through the lookbook a second time this morning, there's no question that this is true love. Like, full-on ring status here. Don't believe it? Check out my favorite pieces from the ulta-wearable collection below, but just don't blame me when you become obsessed, too.... 

The Face: Topshop Spring '13 Campaign Braids
The double mini-braids sported in Topshop's spring '13 campaign have a very Kate Moss circa '90s Corinne Day feel, don't they? Which, obviously, is all the motivation we need to bring 'em back this spring. 

The Inspiration: Bambi Northwood-Blyth by Cass Bird for Bergdorf Goodman 
Cass Bird recruited Australian model Bambi Northwood-Blythe, decked her out in Bergdorf Goodman's finest, and basically bottled up summertime into a photograph. I want to hang this photo above my desk as a reminder to take a deep breath and just chill. 

The Song: 
"You Know My Name" by Courtney Love 
She's baaack! Courtney Love dropped her new single yesterday, and we've had the rough-and-tumble rock jam on repeat since. Listen to the whole thing...because around the two-minute mark, she takes things to the next very loud level.
