In case y'all have been living under a rock/stuck on a remote island sans WiFi for the past several months, the 2013 Video Music Awards are happening this weekend!!! Us New Yorkers are particularly excited because it's all going down at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, and to celebrate, we're doing some killer Brooklyn-themed fashion pieces right here on MTV Style. We already dished on our Fulton Mall faves and reminisced over the Bed-Stuy-inspired fashion in Do The Right Thing, but now we're switching it up to the hottest beauty spots in BK. Since it's Manicure Monday, we figured this would be the PERFECT time to mention our favorite nail art salons in the area, and, yes, that means we won't be mentioning any places in Manhattan. (Sorry, Valley NYC!)

TOMAHAWK SALON: BUSHWICK

Brooklyn Nail Art Salons

One of our go-to faves is the Tomahawk Salon in Bushwick. You might remember when we took y'all there to get Iggy Azalea's nails did last summer, and it's still one of our top spots to date! The main reason? Fleury Rose. The Illamasqua ambassador is by far one of the most talented gals in the hood, and you can even check out her work in action if you don't believe us!

We don't know about you guys, but the closer we get to the 2013 Video Music Awards, the more pumped we are for all-things Miley Cyrus. So far, we've peeped her killer subway dance party VMA promo spot and found out that we'll get to watch her perform live (!!!) straight from the Barclays Center on August 25. If that wasn't ENOUGH awesomeness, we also caught up with Miley during her VMA shoot to get all the deets on her outfit, those 'dorbs onesies she can't stop wearing, and, of course, her (many!) grills. Her stylist, Simone Harouche, already dished on her "We Can't Stop"-inspired crop top and shunderwear ensemble, but we wanted to hear about the outfit straight from the source. She said, "You can just mix white trash and Chanel, that's me. That's my ultimate look. Pretty much everything is weird bondage stores except obviously my jewelry--gotta keep it classy with Chanel. I wear a lot of jewelry during the day, so I pretty much just come with my own jewelry, and give me some underwear to wear with it, and I call it a day." *bows down*

French Fries Clothing

Nom nom nom.

Guys, Food Friday is gettin' kinda serious over here. Every week we've been bringing you nom-worthy clothing and accessories (think: doughnut onesies and pizza backpacks), and today is no different! We're featuring our favorite go-to salty snack: French fries. (But, we have to admit, midway through our market search we totally caved and got some taters to snack on IRL. We go hard, y'all.) The first piece of fry-themed clothing we just HAD to share was this amazing printed button-down ($178) that we could pair with literally anything in our wardrobe to add a little flavor (heh). If you're looking for something a tad less out there, we like this muscle tee ($14) featuring a giant graphic of the salty stuff.

Madonna Birthday

Happy birthday, Madonna! Our favorite Material Girl turns 55 today, and if you know Madge like we do, she's always incorporated one signature staple throughout her 30+ year career—a statement bra! Dudes, think about it—most of Madonna's iconic ensembles involve a killer bustier, a pointy cone bra (made famous by Jean Paul Gaultier, of course! Who can forget that House of Style episode where he talks about his die-hard dedication to corsets? #dead) or barely-there undergarments. She always wore (wears!) the most bold and badass shapewear, and for that, we need to celebrate. We rounded up some of her most memorable lingerie looks (beginning with her Virgin Tour in 1985 through her MDNA tour last year) to show that, yes, highlighting your, erm, assets never goes out of style. OK, let's get this bra-thday party started!

Nicki Minaj Kmart

Barbz, the moment has finally come--our leader/fashion god/head Barbie Nicki Minaj posted pics of her wearing some actual living, breathing pieces from her yet-to-be-released Kmart clothing collection on Instagram, and we're (appropriately) freaking out. Sure, we've peeped some samples in the showroom and weighed in on Nicki's design process early on, but it looks like the line is ready for us to get our grubby little hands on. (Cue: evil cackle with a perfectly-timed thunderclap.) First up, we peep Ms. Minaj in a matching printed long-sleeve (mock turtleneck?!) crop top and leggings ensemble that REALLY shows off her killer bod. (I mean, does this set come with a flat stomach because we're gonna need that too. Kthxbi.)

ke$ha born warrior

Bow down to Ke$ha, you Animals.

Animals, tomorrow Ke$ha's Warrior tour returns to North America for her second (!!!) round of U.S. shows, but you probaaably already knew that. If you're like us, you're dying of anticipation. I mean, sure, her amazing (and extremely phallic!) Charles Albert jewelry line debuted earlier this week, but we still need some serious Ke$ha goodness in our lives ASAP. Thankfully, she ran a costume contest where Animals could submit their best Ke$ha-inspired ensembles with the #BornWarrior hashtag on Twitter and Instagram to win FREE tickets to one of her shows. Obvi tons of fans participated, and Ke$ha has chosen two winners! Are y'all ready to see their ensembles? Let's get to it!

Robert Pattinson Dior

Another day, another Robert Pattinson Dior Homme photo! I mean, we're totally not complaining, but it feels like Dior has been rolling out RPattz's debut fragrance campaign oh-so-slowly all summer long—we're just DYING to see the full thing already! Also, a commercial would be nice too. :) So far, we've seen Robert looking 'dorbs in a bathtub and snuggling with a lady in bed, but in his latest image, the Twilight star is perched on a rooftop decked out in THE finest duds. He sports a slim-cut black suit with a crisp white shirt and out-of-this-world sunnies.

Angel Haze Grimes Harper's Bazaar

Listen, sometimes we just want to see some of our favorite musicians and actresses decked out in THE coolest couture duds, OK? Like, is that so much to ask? Apparently not! Former Vogue Paris EIC Carine Roitfeld made our dreams a reality in the latest issue of Harper's Bazaar by choosing 20 ladies to be featured in her "Singular Beauties" spread. Basically, she rounded up some of our faves (think: Dakota Fanning and Lily Collins) as "an homage to the diversity of women," which was photographed by Mr. Karl Lagerfeld himself. One of our top looks was definitely from Grimes who mixed high and low fashion in the best way possible. She sported a floral Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane frock with furry Fendi shoes and a backward purple snapback. She turned up her beauty game by wearing a dark burgundy lip against her bright red hair. Rapper Angel Haze worked it OUT in a killer menswear-inspired ensemble. She wore a Giorgio Armani shirt and overalls (!!!) paired with Lanvin oxfords. Oh, and that yellow fur jacket she's standing on? That's Versace.

We'll be honest—we can never get enough of Stiles' layered tee ensembles on Teen Wolf. Sure, Dylan O'Brien rocks simply chic looks IRL, but costume designer Barbara Vazquez styles Stiles (hehe) in goofy tees as an homage to the original '80s film for the show. She told us, "If you’ll notice, Stiles, you see him wearing a T-shirt with something ridiculous on it, or has a funny image, which is what the original styles had in the original movie." Ahhh, now it all makes sense! This week, Stiles stayed true to his go-to layered graphic tee and plaid shirt ensemble, but opted for a summery surfer ringer tee with a navy blue plaid button-up thrown on top.

Shark Week Nail Art

With the start of the new month (HAI, AUGUST!) also comes the start of—wait for it—SHARK WEEK! EEEEEEE. I know you're, all, "Chill with the caps lock, and stop internet yelling at me," but we can't, y'all. This is not only an informational seven day event dedicated to our fine finned friends, but it's also an excuse to wear killer (heh) shark nail art all week long. Even though Shark Week officially kicked off last night, we've still got PLENTY of time to honor our favorite underwater predators. (Also, if you want to consider this a late homage to Sharknado, we wouldn't be mad at that either. If you don't know what we're talking about, see Google. Immediately.) Our first mani inspiration comes from Chrissy (it's not me, I swear!), and it's really, really good, guys. She not only managed to fit the words "Shark Week" on her pinky, but also included the entire Jaws movie poster on her ring finger. *bows down*

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