Boy. by Band of Outsiders pre-fall 2012 collection.

Chances are, if you're releasing a collection inspired by '70s style icon Diane Keaton circa her Woody Allen-directed classic Manhattan, we are gonna be 100 percent on board.

The 2012 pre-fall offerings from Boy. by Band Of Outsiders are well-tailored and feature tons of preppy meets party-girl pieces. (Note to the youf: If you haven't seen Manhattan, add that to the top of your Netflix queue immediately. And if "Diane Keaton" doesn't ring a bell for some of you, well, look her up and tell a friend. She's major.).

Get your favorite crop top out of storage and polish that bejeweled naval ring because it's about that time to get into the holiday Spear-it, y'all—Britney Spears is getting married! It looks like Britney may have finally found her knight in shining armor (or, at least her Sam Merlotte doppelgänger—that guy is all "True Blood" kinds of foxy. WOOF!) in talent manager Jason Trawick who you'll remember from that BANANAS "Criminal" video. And while we'll make wild speculations about what our girl will wear on her big day, 'til then we're going to take a jaunt down memory lane and revisit Britney Spears' MOST memorable wedding dress moments. Leggo!

The Femme Fatale era kicked off with Britney's Jonas Åkerlund-directed "Hold It Against Me" video complete with the return of the midriff, a hair whipping frenzy, and a sea of basically naked chiseled male dancers. It also featured a celestial Britney flying in the air in a GINORMOUS wedding dress with dancers (sans eyes) bouncing around underneath her flowing ensemble. We think Team Britney got the "Godney" (what true Stans call Ms. Spears) memo for this heavenly look. That is until Brit Brit reminds us she's "not that innocent" and begins to spew paint from her fingers turning her wedding dress into a Crayola smeared work of art. Can you imagine the heel you'd have to sport to walk down the aisle in this? MURDER.

Miley Cyrus Gold Dress

Miley Cyrus wore two gold looks.

• Apparently just being Miley this week means wearing flowing, floor-length golden gowns. Yes, Miley worked two Red Carpets with two gold designer dresses this week by Roberto Cavalli and Jenny Packham respectively. She just can't be tamed, y'all. We still cannot decide on our fave dress pick, but Miley's glam side French braid look definitely deserves a fashion-y golden ticket.

• Fact or fiction: It was a really good year for the wig/extension/the rainbow-colored-dye industry. FACT. From emerging Aussie rappers to fearless mega pop icons, no one was safe from major Rainbow Brite-on-ecstacy dizzying colors to Rapunzel-meets-Little Mermaid-meets-insert-Disney-character-of-your-choice floor-length weaves. Oh, what an unbeweave-able (heh) year it's been.

• Understatement of the year: We are obsessed with K-Pop girl group 2NE1 AND designer-for-all-major-pop-stars aka Jeremy Scott. Duh. This week, we sat down with 2NE1 and J. Scott backstage after 2NE1's BANANAS first U.S. performance. Warning: Lots of fierce blinged out nail art and cray hair styles were involved. *shivers* In other news, somehow, some way, we are still alive.

• Are you a fan of a chunky open-toed shoe, a pointy, punk-y pump, or a classic Louis Vuitton? Well, so are Elle Fanning and Gwen Stefani! Yep, we've got you covered in the best of this week's shoe porn department. You're totally welcome.

• Call it what you will, but we kind of heart Jared Leto's so-called rock star life slash mullet thing he's got going on. Especially when it's documented in glorious 360-degree detail by Terry Richardson.

Odd Future Christmas Tees

Put down the bedazzled ironic holiday sweater and get your Christmas hipster chic on, thanks to Odd Future and their monthlong L.A. pop-up shop, which will feature two screen-printed Christmas tees designed by the OFWGKTA crew. The two tees showcase naughty nutcrackers and a gingerbread man like you've NEVER seen him before. These NSFW designs really aren't all THAT surprising considering the hip-hop dudes have an affinity for courting a little controversy, who, P.S., boast Mr. Freestylin' Provocateur aka Eminem himself's full "the dudes can rhyme" support. The tees will only be available at the L.A.-based pop-up shop, which will only be open for a month, so you better hurry if you want to get your hands on some Odd Future-designed tees. (Psst: We totally dare you to wear the gingerbread shirts to your grandparents on Christmas Eve, enthusiastically offer to say "Grace" and report back to us. *DEAD* Just don't expect anything but coal in your X-Mas stocking this year! *Makes spiked eggnog, kicks off Doc Martens, and watches Bad Santa DVD* #TeamOddFuture

Listen, Rihanna Navy. You better get those life jackets ready because the Rihanna ship is about to sink after y'all watch this smokin' behind-the-scenes peek at her Armani Jeans campaign shot by fashion photographer Steven Klein. Ri Ri looks all kinds of INSANELY DIVINE as she takes it all off in the backseat of a car, and we still can't get over the show-stopping platinum pixie she's sporting from the previously released ads. Watch (and diiiiiiee) as Rihanna struts her stuff in a vacant New York City parking garage while a few foxy/suspicious men clad in suits ogle her (note: Do not attempt IRL, OK?) being the naughty, pin-up girl/crooner that she is. Ri unzips her amazing leather jacket and uses the backseat of an old -school town car as her dressing room. Um, #werque! (P.S. Did someone mention this being a denim ad?) Rihanna's certainly not the first bleached bowl cut, lingerie-clad mega pop star in a steamy black-and-white Klein-directed video clip, but, duh, we're not complaining. We just cannot stop ourselves from talking that talk about our beloved Rihanna. Go on with your bad self, girl!

Kendall Jenner Lovecat Magazine

Someone get Tyra on the phone! Kendall Jenner is not messing around when it comes to becoming America's Next Top Model. No stranger to the catwalk (she made her New York Fashion Week modeling debut for Sherri Hill in September), she can now add bonafide supermodel to her fashion-y resume by nabbing (and, um, KILLIN' IT) with her very own stunning spread in quirky model fanzine LOVECAT. Yes, THAT zine who previously featured super bad girl covers like a dramatically-shot Lindsay Lohan and a very flashy (heh) Paz De La Huerta. But wait, does this mean Kendall is totally having a "Not A Girl, Not Yet A Woman" moment? According to LOVECAT founders Prince Chenoa and Jacob DeKat, there's no need to fret just yet. "We normally don't feature 16-year-olds in LOVECAT, so when we got Kendall for the issue, we just wanted it to be fun," the creative duo tells MTV Style. "She's 16 so it needed to feel like Lisa Frank and cutesy—not sexy. If we were shooting Kim, it would be a lot more va-va-voom sexy 'cause Kim just purrs! We are really happy with Kendall's shots."

Robyn Saturday Night Live

The pop music stars were (literally/figuratively/awesomely) aligned on Saturday evening when Swedish pop gem Robyn (and her BANANAS custom platform Timbs) took the SNL stage and former tour homegirl Katy Perry was the night's hostest-with-the-mostess. But was America ready for the Swedish pop tart with a bite and her body-rollin, making-out-with-herself dance moves? She did a backwards-somersault-into-a-full-on-dance-floor-hump while rocking a pristine bowl cut (which our little brothers totally had in '96) WHILST singing "Call Your Girlfriend," and it might've actually changed our lives, like, forevs. *dead* Call US, girlfriend. Not only do we wanna borrow those bouncy moves, we also want to raid that suitcase of yours.

Katy Perry Blonde Bob

• Newsflash: Katy Perry is totally a mature and sophisticated California Woman as of late, y'all. She went on and made us weep with her "The One That Got Away" cinematic Danielle Steel-romance-gone-wrong music vid. And now, this week's SNL hostest-with-the-mostess opted for a severely chic bob over her multicolored signature wigs. *FAINTS* Butttt in true adorable Perry fashion, her chopped locks got the soft strawbs milkshake tint treatment, which proves you can take the girl out of Candyland, but you can't take the Candyland out of the girl.

Demi Lovato wins the "I Hate You Cuz You're Absolutely Beautiful Sans Concealer" award this week, posing without a DAB of makeup on the cover of Glamour Magazine. Not even a little eyelash-curling action, Dem? (Are you a real, like, person?) We insist Lovatz get on a little "Teenage Dream" pop-crooning covering ASAP, because we think you're super pretty without any makeup on, girl.

• This week in Lady Gaga related style news: she's still amazing. Mommy Monster rocked some Jessica Rabbit-ish-if-Jessica-Rabbit-was-a-kick-ass-biker-chick ensembles at the KIISS FM Jingle Ball in L.A.. Sequins, studs, and motor engines, oh my (GAGA)!!!

• Did we like, nail it or WHAT with our Best of 2011: Celeb Nail Art post? From Beyoncé's adorb neon rainbow paint job to Lauren Conrad's cutely colorful DIY nail work of art, it was a good year to put a ring(s) on it.

• Oh, and Lisa Frank makes clothing now. Some of it's only OK and some of it's FIRE.

What do Pharrell Williams, Kreayshawn and Iggy Azalea all have in common? If you answered something along the lines of "like, totally booty-bouncin' jams!", though absolutely accurate, you're visiting the wrong site. (As if! This is MTV Style.) We're talking about their totally head-turning, dangerously enviable, let-me-borrow-that-outfit, easy, breezy STEEZ, people! The trendsetting musical trio recently kicked it with Karmaloop and spilled the beans about what's on their gift list for the holiday season. Um, we definitely did waaay more (SEE: buh-bye, bank account) than simply "checking it twice," Santa. Oops!

Pharrell Williams Gift Guide

Pharrell Williams, aka Karmaloop TV's newest creative director, is the epitome of effortlessly OMFGahhh stylish UH-DORABLE. (How the eff is he 38 and looking like THAT?) Pharrell's gift picks are as you'd expect: IMMACULATE. We live and die for the WeSC Borik Cardigan in "Sunflower Melange," which will totally brighten up the death bed-ish winter months without destroying your wallet (60 bucks!). Kick it like a rock star in the Palladium Baggy Leather Boot ($110), which we prefer in "Sunrise & Chocolate" because, well, we've got a thing for sunrise and chocolate. And keep it cute (and cozy) with the charcoal Woodsmen Gloves—$20?! We'll take half a dozen. Yes, we were already super smitten with this beyond perfect individual, and then he went on and revealed his style icon: Steve McQueen. *FAINTS* PUT A RING ON US. LIKE, NOW.

Behind the scenes of the Jeremy Scott x Adidas Originals Spring 2012 shoot.

Have you ever dreamed of dressing like a crazy combo of all of the Spice Girls at once? You know, with towering platforms, leopard print push-up bras, and breakaway racing striped adidas pants circa 1997? Us too! We have a feeling Jeremy Scott was on a similar wavelength after watching (drooling at) the behind-the-scenes footage for his Spring/Summer 2012 adidas collection. Minds were lost, childhood dreams came true, credit cards were ravaged. (We may/may not have tried leaping like the models in the vid without looking nearly as cute...)

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
