I know decorating your dorm room is probably the last thing on your mind right now, but these tips on creating a green dorm room (or apartment) are great. Bookmark them for the fall, or use them for your summer apartment!

On that same note, check out Katy Perry's light-up gown from the event! So cool.

Last Met Gala link, we swear: Vogue posted a short behind-the-scenes film, "The Making of the Met Gala". Fun fact: the film was directed by none other than R.J. Cutler, director of "The September Issue."

Is technology making us socially awkward?

“Everyone wants everyone else to say hi but doesn’t want to be the person saying hi,’’ as my housemate put it. We use cellphones to mediate they way others perceive us; if we’re texting or calling a friend, we appear sought after, occupied, in demand.

But the tragic, isolating thing is that we reach for our devices because we don’t want to seem lonely — which is causing us to avoid our peers and actually be lonely.

*

Seventeen is having a reader model contest, but this advice on how to take a great picture from Liz Edelstein of Ford Models is worth reading regardless.
