INDIO -- Self-described “model-sociallite” Silka (no last name given) drifted across the densely populated Coachella VIP section during the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' evening set attired in a crocheted shawl, a $400 Malia Mills bikini and a pair of Marc Jacobs sneaker wedges. She was sipping discreetly at a vodka cranberry in a plastic tumbler and turning heads with every step. The New York-based native of Hungary explained she had spent the better part of two days earlier this week sifting through her wardrobe to find precisely the right ensembles for three days' worth of festival revelry beneath Indio's baking sun. “Of course I love the music but of course I want to look good,” Silka said as a male companion smiled in nodding agreement.

"High School Musical 3: Senior Year" is the third installment of Walt Disney Co.'s franchise in the last three years, a surprise cash cow that ran on cable TV and now springs to the big screen. "Saw V," its potential rival for No. 1 this weekend at the box office, is the fifth movie in Twisted Pictures and Lionsgate's lucrative horror series in the last five years. If other industries recycled their material as regularly as Hollywood, global warming would be a distant memory.

TORONTO -- The manic crowd for Kristen Stewart on Thursday night was nothing compared to the turnout Friday for “Spring Breakers.” Was this young, smartly dressed crowd there for the latest film by notorious provocateur Harmony Korine, whose last film was the divisive “Trash Humpers”? Well, yes, but really they were there for the combined youth demo drawing power of James Franco, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Benson, with the added rumor that Gomez's boyfriend Justin Bieber may be there.

Vanessa Hudgens, the star of the Disney "High School Musical" films, is tackling more adult roles in the upcoming "Machete Kills" and "The Frozen Ground. " But the 23-year-old has retained her youthful, slightly punk edge when it comes to her personal style -- she's more likely to don a pair of combat boots on the red carpet than a pair of sparkly stilettos. When she participated in "The 24 Hour Plays," Montblanc's creative fundraiser for the Urban Arts Project, in New York City on Monday, the actress opted for a sleeveless white top, simple black pants and lace-up boots.

Vanessa Hudgens, Julianne Hough, Emma Roberts and Clint Eastwood were just a few of the celebrities who took a break from the Coachella Music and Arts Festival to visit the Armani Exchange Neon Carnival on Saturday night. For the last four years, the brand has hosted a giant carnival in the middle of the desert at the Tradition Aviation Airport Hangar just 15 minutes from the Empire Polo Club. It's arguably one of the biggest events surrounding the festival and this year was no different.

When a 15-year-old girl flashes a hint of her green bra in a playfully naughty photo on the Internet, hardly anyone -- aside from perhaps her parents -- blinks. But when the teen is Miley Cyrus, the face of the billion-dollar "Hannah Montana" Disney Channel franchise, everyone stares. The provocative images risk tainting the squeaky-clean image that's made her a hero for young girls. Disney Channel has emerged as a powerful creative engine for the Walt Disney Co.

Forget "World War Z. " The true zombie movie this summer is "The Bling Ring. " Written and directed by Sofia Coppola, the film has the quality of a vacant stare, reflecting back a disturbing, unsettling blankness. The story is based on the real-life group of L.A youths who burglarized the homes of celebrities they ostensibly admired - an iconographic coterie that included Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton. Seeming to lack a conscience or sense of consequence, the gang grabbed tabloid infamy as a jaundiced apex of contemporary consumer/reality culture.
