Like her character Jessa on HBO’s hit show Girls, Jemima Kirke (in a custom-made dress from her mother’s fashion line, Geminola), is a fashion free spirit. “Getting dressed is an easy thing,” Kirke told InStyle.com at the season two premiere presented by the Cinema Society in New York City. “People make it really difficult.” It’s this nonchalance towards fashion that seems to create her effortless sense of style. “Her style is so diverse that everything feels a little bit different,” Girls costume designer Jenn Rogien explained to InStyle.com. And Kirke’s sartorial confidence can even be traced back as far as high school, when her longtime friend, designer Zac Posen, would make her clothes! “He used to make dresses for the girls he liked in high school, but he would put them together with Velcro as the zipper,” Kirke revealed to reporters. A match made in fashion heaven!

After teasing the world this morning, Justin Timberlake has announced that in three days time, he will release his first music in six years. In the above video, Tweeted today around noon EST, Timberlake says, “Someone asked me the other day if I’m just done with music. It means more to me than anyone else in the world. I’ve only done two albums in ten years; that’s the way I look at it. What does the next decade mean for me?” A countdown is currently live on countdown.justintimberlake.com, with a new letter of the music’s title revealed at unknown intervals, so far a “J,” an ”S,” and an “E.” And the new tunes—JT left it unclear whether it’s a song, album, or something in between—will hit the Internet at midnight, Monday January 14, which is basically immediately following the Golden Globes. The clip shows Timberlake enter the recording studio, put on his headphones, and say, “I’m ready.” So are we, Justin! Watch the video above!

We loved host Kaley Cuoco’s super-feminine look at the People’s Choice Awards, and we’ve got exclusive insider access to her pre-show primping party! Celebrity Makeup Artist Jamie Greenberg, using mark products, told us the inspiration for the look: it was all about girly mod. “We channeled Sophia Loren and Barbie,” Greenberg told InStyle.com. “We had the best time ever! Kaley made these pink sweatshirts for us that said ‘Touchdown’ on the back and we brought t-shirts that said ‘Team Cuoco.’” We asked her how she gave Cuoco that pitch-perfect rosy complexion with a hint of shimmer. “I started by applying mark Min-A-Real Cream-to-Powder Foundation in Light Medium 5 ($18; meetmark.com) all over Kaley’s face, layering on Touch & Glow Shimmer Cream Cubes Face Palette ($16; meetmark.com), and Just Blushing Powder Blush in Lovespell ($9; meetmark.com) to create a gorgeous natural glow.” Click through the gallery for more exclusive photos and to see how to get the look!
At last night’s premiere of the second season of HBO’s hit Lena Dunham-created show Girls, it wasn’t all about the females! The boys of the show—Alex Karpovsky, Adam Driver, Andrew Rannells (in Hugo Boss), and Christopher Abbott—looked super dapper and had a lot to say about what we can expect on the series, which returns this Sunday, January 13 at 9/8 c. “This season will show that the boys are just as confused as the girls,” Rannells (who plays Hannah’s gay ex-boyfriend and new roommate Elijah) told InStyle.com. “You do get to learn more about all of the male characters this season, which is kind of fun. I don’t know if it is necessarily going to help anybody out though!” Karpovsky, who plays Shoshanna’s (played by Zosia Mamet) love interest Ray, also dished on how his character will develop: “You can expect to see a more tender, caring, and lovesick Ray than you saw in season one, but with all the anger and resentment,” Karpovsky told InStyle.com. And what can girls who watch Girls learn about boys? “They can learn a tremendous amount, but I want the show to speak for itself in that respect,” Karpovsky said. Intriguing!
