Michelle Williams at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery for Boy. by Band of Outsiders.

We are smitten with two very specific things: Boy. by Band of Outsiders and Michelle Williams. Put the two together for spring 2012, and we're in full body shutdown mode. As we're about to fall down the magical rabbit hole that is New York Fashion Week starting, oh, tomorrow (yes, it's already here, folks!), we're thrilled that it all kicks off with this new campaign from the Los Angeles-based clothing line. Band of Outsiders always chooses someone special to front its latest collection (like Rupert Grint and Tom Felton or Kirsten Dunst), and it was only a matter of time before Ms. Williams made her way onto the brand's vintage Polaroid film. Fitting together like a match made in diffused, early '60s Jean Seberg-esque heaven, we're completely in love with everything about this. Also, OMG, TOILE.

christian louboutin capsule bag

When it comes to shoes, Christian Louboutin is king. His sky-high confections regularly trod Hollywood red carpets, not to mention tip out fashion editors worldwide. Here in New York, it's impossible to stroll past either of his uptown or downtown boutiques without stopping to peek at the dazzling creations in the window (nor the droves of ladies inside trying them on). And after 20 glorious years in the business, he is launching a Capsule Collection of handbags. Yes, aside from designing beautifully made shoes, often with a touch of whimsy (who can forget those insane paw and hoof shoes he created last year?), Louboutin also constructs jaw-dropping handbags that toe the line between nighttime chic and flamboyant statement. With this new Capsule Collection he has topped himself by introducing a super fun and totally meta "Pilule" bag, which is in the shape of an actual capsule.

Diplo, Skrillex, and A-Trak on the cover of 'Billboard' magazine.

Electronic dance music gods Diplo, Skrillex, and A-Trak cover the latest issue of Billboard magazine, and, well, we're a little swoony. First of all, we're super into the fact that electronic music is having its fair share of attention these days, and that it has been catapulted to the forefront of popular music again thanks to pioneering DJs and producers like these fine fellows. At a time when the way we discover music—let alone the way artists release it—is forever changing, it's refreshing to see what was often considered a subculture scene find its way to the more mainstream. Also, these three gentlemen have several Grammy Award nominations between them. Oh, and they're seriously stylin'. Let's break down this mega blazer-slash-varsity-jacket-slash-scarf action bizness because, BOY, are we're feeling it.

Karl Lagerfeld likes to speak his mind. The Chanel designer and Fendi creative director (not to mention photographer, book collector, music aficionado, and kitten lover) has been doing a stint as global guest editor of Metro newspapers, and he had a few things on his mind. As you are probably well aware, we love ourselves some KL here at MTV Style. The man is an icon and multifaceted designer of numerous lines—including his own—as well as remaining a rabid consumer of new music. He never seems to tire of the latest and greatest female artists, either, and has championed everyone from muse Florence Welch to, most recently, Azealia Banks. Well, when he was recently asked by a staff member at Metro what he thought about Lana Del Rey he had some rather interesting things to say, and he didn't stop there. Oh no, as our opinionated Uncle Karl is wont to do, he went ahead and threw in his thoughts on Adele and M.I.A. too.

Madonna Super Bowl

In case you missed it, Madonna put on one heck of a performance at Sunday's Super Bowl, singing not three, as originally reported, but FIVE songs from her arsenal of hits and doing it all while wearing sparkling Givenchy. We knew the Queen of Pop was gonna bring it (and with recent collaborators Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. in tow), but we had NO idea she was going to parade some of her greatest hits in designer Spartan-wear while also singing a duet with Cee Lo Green in matching sequin choir robes. Yes, it was epic (and polarizing for the love-it or hate-it audience), but we have to give a standing O to the original pop music superstar diva. Not only did she bring half-clothed gladiator "Vogue" boys and b-boy dancers wearing Jeremy Scott for Adidas to the show, she exploded some serious FASH-PIZAZZ confetti dust all over the world of American football. Let's dissect this sparkle motion, shall we?

tavi neil young fashion week cadaver

Earlier this week, we reported that fashion blogger and Rookie editor Tavi Gevinson is starring in the new animated short film Cadaver. She plays a medical student who helps a cadaver find a way to mend his wounded heart, and aside from narrating the entire film—which is written like a lyrical poem—Gevinson also performs a spare, haunting version of legendary musician Neil Young's seminal song "Heart of Gold" at the very end. It's a ginormous deal because A) it's Tavi SINGING, and B) Neil Young rarely gives any musician the rights to play this song but gave his personal permission to the high school media wunderkind. Also? Tavi G is going to perform the song LIVE during New York Fashion Week.

Julia Stiles and Anna Wintour attend a Chicago Bulls vs. New York Knicks Game at Madison Square Garden.

Fully aware that we're a quote-unquote fashion site, we need to discuss something sports related. You guys, Anna Wintour went to a Knicks game last night. And she sat front row (obvs). Also, she sat as if she was front row at a runway show complete with bold separates (this is the season of vivid color remember?), black heeled boots, her trademark bob and sunglasses combo, as well as a sassy-fresh, arms-crossed, "this is GARISH" pose as if she was scrutinizing the disheveled, sweat-infused uniforms these hard-working athletes were undoubtedly sporting in the second half of the game. But it's kind of awesome, right? I mean, she's the Editor in Chief of Vogue for goodness sake—at a sports event. We're getting shaky just thinking about it. Thus, let's discuss.

Rihanna tweets a photos of her new blonde hair.

Rihanna has been making the headlines lately. There was that $160,000 purchase of a Marilyn Monroe Swarovski crystal artwork, numerous basketball game appearances, and the announcement that she'll be getting her very own fashion reality series. Well, just to go ahead and toss an albino cherry on top of this Ri-Ri press parfait, she recently tweeted a photo of her new platinum blonde hairdo. Oh, and she included a full body shot with thigh-high boots and casually mentioned that she's going to be on the cover of Elle. Also, is it just us or is she totally, completely, and utterly nakie nudie in that photo above?

nicki minaj grammy promos

Nicki Minaj wearing Jeremy Scott in two Grammy Awards promotional videos.

All we have to say is let the love fest between Nicki Minaj and Jeremy Scott continue! As you know, Miss M is up for wearing anything and everything that falls under the craytastic umbrella, and Señor Scott is the king of the wildest and most magical bazonkerpalooza outfits we've ever seen so, naturally, they're a match made in pink leather heaven. (Remember that purple and orange striped Jeremy Scott cutout dress she wore in Glamour magazine? Yeah, we're still coveting that beaute.) Well, the two have joined fantasy fashion forces again in the form of Nicki M wearing not one, not two, but THREE Jeremy Scott pieces for a commercial with LL Cool J and a nominee interview video both in celebration of the upcoming Grammy Awards which are just two weeks away. Sporting what we'd like to call Happy Cowgirl Playtime Fiesta Fracas Wear, Minaj dons both a red leather bustier with never-ending tassels and a double-layered pink leather cowgirl bra-slash-holster hybrid with pastel pink lips and mile-long lashes. Great Scott, we are so into this!

Rocawear is back! After laying off half of its employees at the beginning of 2012—and seemingly sticking to a style game stuck in the early aughts—as well as the news that Jay-Z's promotional contract had expired, the future of the once-popular urban streetwear label was uncertain. But Jay-Z recently spoke with WWD to set the record straight. Not only is Rocawear still around and doing well despite thinning out its staff, it is set to launch a whole new television campaign starring Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter himself.

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