Some might say there's a thin line between pushing the envelope and just being straight-up nonsensical. Fashion Week and all its other runway-laden permutations is a hotbed for that kind of style gray area and this week's London Men's Collections were no exception. Don't get us wrong, there were PUH-LENTY of gorgeous completely 100% wearable looks that stormed the catwalks across the pond, but there are ALWAYS going to be a few token ensembles you look at and think, "Umm, this exists?" Thus, we've rounded up what are, in our opinion, the five most difficult outfits to wear IRL from this season's presentations. Enjoy!

We're pretty sure it shouldn't come as a surprise that wearing a giant black plastic bucket on your head is going to present some vision issues, but even there ARE microscopic holes near the ocular region, it's probably just as difficult to walk into a coffee shop and be taken seriously when you're sporting this bad boy.

Whew, it's FINALLY here, y'all! Miley Cyrus' "We Can't Stop" music video just dropped, and we've been watching this bad boy on repeat ALL DAY. Between her bombass grill, taxidermy accessories and dope onesies, there's just so much fashiony goodness wrapped up in one 3-minute video, we can barely handle it. Lucky for you, we pulled out every single outfit (which was styled by Simone Harouche!) so we can digest each look in all its amazing glory. So, let's get to it!
Earlier this week, we saw Demi Lovato reveal that the manicure she rocked at the 2013 MuchMusic Video Awards found its way onto her tips while she was getting some much-needed pre-show shut-eye. D slept face-down on a couch while her favorite nail artist, Stephanie Stone, hooked her up with some killer tips. (They were black with gold beads used as studs if you were wondering.) When we first saw this snap, we were all, "ZOMG, this brings new meaning to the term 'beauty rest,'" and "Mannnnn, I really wish my sister/roommate/boyfriend would do that for me..." etc.etc., but THEN, she uploaded a video of it.
LeBron James transforms after losing his headband in Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals. Watch out, Tony!

You know how there's that totally illogical reveal element to the Superman story where suddenly Clark Kent can transform into the Man of Steel just by taking off his glasses? This ridiculous notion that ONE accessory can catalyze a complete alteration of character? Like, dudes, we can all still tell Clark Kent is just a four-eyes, suited-up version of Superman. Welp, apparently, it's not that ridiculous since that's exactly what went down last night when LeBron James lost his headband in Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals. In truth, it really wasn't just James that propelled the Heat to stave off elimination and force the series against the San Antonio Spurs into a Game 7 (there's no "I" in team, etc.etc.), but (with the HUGE exception of Mike Miller and his one-shoed three-pointer), no one else's in-game style took a hold of Twitter in quite the same Superman moment way as LeBron and his headband. And now that we think about it, they ARE both from Ohio...
Miley Cyrus, Cara Delevingne, and Jourdan Dunn in Dimepiece.

Unless you've been living under a rock the past couple of months (or somehow managed to miss the whole Instagram boat?), chances are you're already well-versed in the total and absolute coolness that is Dimepiece. After all, we first called out the Los Angeles-based streetwear label last fall, when famous face Cara Delevingne snapped herself wearing lots— and we mean LOTS— of these rad athletic-inspired pieces backstage during Fashion Week. Since then the brand has cropped up on Miley Cyrus, Rihanna, and supermodel Jourdan Dunn, and is swiftly integrating itself into pretty much all of young Hollywood's closets. And why shouldn't it? Dimepiece has an easy, wearable vibe, practically oozes attitude, AND designers Ashley Jones and Laura Fama are exactly as awesome as you'd hope. We got proof of this when we grabbed coffee with the co-founders and longtime friends yesterday during their brief visit to Manhattan, where they spilled on the company's humble beginnings, cult celeb fan base, and their strategy for getting their duds on Beyonce. Get the scoop below!
New! Adidas Amber Light Up Hidden Heel
UNNAMED SHOE STORE: DAY
Numerous wedge sneakers line the shelves, looking nice, looking fresh. Nike’s there. Reebok is too. Vans. Even Puma! Higher-end brands congregate in a separate display area, eating foie gras. But in this United Nations of sneakers, something’s missing. The lack of one nation does not go unrecognized—but today, things are about to change.
CUSTOMER: Yeah, hi. Do you have the new Adidas wedge sneaker?
REEBOK WEDGE (to other sneakers): Shh. Listen. Did you hear that?
VANS WEDGE: Nah, bro. What’d she say?
REEBOK WEDGE: She asked for an Adidas wedge.

Two things. Tomorrow is the O Music Awards's Live Day, AND *takes deeeeeeeeeep breath because this is the most exciting thing I've said all day* HANSON is performing!!!! As in THIS Hanson. As in the three brothers from Tulsa, Oklahoma who struck pop GOLD in the late '90s thanks to rosy cheeks and a seriously underrated debut single (I'm, of course, referring to "MMMBop"). These bros are getting together to play the O Music Awards Live Music Day Festival which kicks off tomorrow at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT and lasts for 24 HOURS and is aaaaall streamed online. Since we know you'll be tuning in from home but will still want to look put togeths (because IDK about you, but Hanson was *IT* for me in 4th grade and they've only gotten better with age), we've put together a li'l outfit suggestion for your big night in with the boys.
Beyonce and Jay-Z at the 40/40 Club 10 Year Anniversary party in New York on June 17.

All together now: awwwww! Beyonce and Jay-Z are basically THE couple of the year, OK fine, century, which means we can't help but get teary-eyed every time we see them being total BFFs in public. What REALLY gets to us, though, is when the dopest duo around also sports coordinating duds because, um hi, we're total suckers for a good fashion sense. Last night, the couple celebrated Jay-Z's 40/40 Club 10-year anniversary in New York, and of course they matched in the coolest way possible. Bey stunned in a white Roberto Cavalli Spring 2013 cut-out dress with a simple gold cross chain necklace and gold clutch. For her beauty game, she sported chic, deep-parted blonde strands, barely-there makeup, and burgundy nails. Jay wore a summery gray suit with a white shirt, black shoes and light gray pocket square that complemented Beyonce's ensemble perfectly.
Justin Bieber debuts filled in tattoo sleeve.

Welp, at this point, we're just confirming the inevitable. Justin Bieber has finally gotten that left forearm tattoo sleeve. We say "inevitable" because the way he's been racking up permanent emblems on that specific spot over the past several months more than suggested that this would be on the horizon. It started innocently enough, Biebsy inked himself with "Believe" in cartoon block letters in commemoration of his coming-of-age album of the same name. Then, he added this owl illustration. Next to that, he branded himself with a mysterious "X," and from there, the progression accelerates to break-neck speeds.
Katy Perry in the July issue of 'Vogue.'

In case you missed one of THE biggest moments in MTV Style history, last Friday Katy Perry graced her first-ever Vogue magazine cover. Eeee! She was a VISION in a romantic, off-the-shoulder fall floral get-up, and today even more glorious images from the spread were released. In one photo, she lounges on a barrel of hay in a gorge Zac Posen red duchess-satin strapless dress worn over a cream Blumarine frock. She knocked it out of the park with her on-point retro beauty game, which features a matte red lip, glossy brown lids, and strong brows.
