Rapper Theophilus London is no stranger to fashion collaborations. He's hooked up with everyone from Del Toro to Stussy under his creative agency LVRS, and he's about to add another yet another name to his fashion resume—Surface to Air. We got wind of this hook-up thanks to a Mr. Porter interview from in the fall, and just last night he (finally!) debuted a piece from the collection via Instagram. In one elusive pic, Theo wrote "Testing 1 2 3," as he stood in the shade wearing a black bomber jacket with silver zipper detailing along the front and patches along the arm. Had Surface to Air not regrammed the photo with the caption, "Surface to Air x @theophiluslondon. Available soon. @lvrswatt #regram #surfacetoair #theophiluslondon #collabs," we never would've even KNOWN it was an original LVRS creation.
It feels like forever ago since we found out/freaked out about Beyonce's "The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour" announcement, but, dudes, it starts in T-minus three days. THREE. DAYS. AHHHH. As we get closer to her debut show, details about her performance outfits continue to leak out—the most recent being that the infamous twins behind Dsquared2, Dean and Dan Caten, will be designing at least one custom-made piece for
Queen King Bey, according to Vogue UK. Beyonce's other looks will be created by Julien Macdonald, but who knows who else joined her A-list designer roster. (We'll find out on Monday, though! *SQUEE*)
Sure, we've been finding ways to have THE most perfect prom all week long, but have you ever wondered how some of your favorite celebs celebrated their big night out? Well, we certainly have, and since we work at MTV (NBD), we thought we'd find out how some of our biggest stars stacked up. We rounded up prom pics from Jersey Shore, The Hills, Laguna Beach, Awkward., and TRL cast members, and, OMG, we are so excited to share them with you. Warning: Lots of awesomeness ahead.
NICOLE 'SNOOKI' POLIZZI FROM 'JERSEY SHORE'
Our girl Jersey Shore girl Snooki didn't look so much different back in the day. She definitely had the "T" of "GTL" on lock, and, um, that up-do with the tendrils cascading down the side? SO mid-2000s. She went for the classic smoky eye and nude lip look paired with a strapless teal dress, which she said she swiped up from JC Penney. Not bad, Ms. Polizzi!
We get it, Miley Cyrus. You love onesies. Whether it's a horse-themed footie PJ set or head-to-toe leopard print get-up she CANNOT get enough of the singlet stuff. In March, we were worried the warm weather would cease all the onesie-wearing, but last night she totally proved us wrong! She tweeted a pic of herself wearing a short (!!!) grey button-up one piece made by—wait for it—Chanel. Her caption read, "Don't hate. Appreciate. #Chanel1Z," and we have to say that we don't hate it all. We love how she cuffed the bottom of the shorts and paired it with killer accessories—a name plate necklace, gold watch, stacked chain bracelets, and an AMAZING half-moon mani.
Rebel Wilson on 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno' on April 10.

Dudes, we cannot WAIT for the MTV Movie Awards this weekend. Why? Two words: Rebel. Wilson. In case you didn't get the (amazing) memo, she'll be hosting the show Sunday night, and we could not be more excited to see what she wears. Will she go comfy-chic in tracksuit and sneakers or glam it up in fancy frock and pumps? We've definitely pondered this before, and when she stopped by The Tonight Show with Jay Leno she decided to show off her sporty side in a head-to-toe baby blue Adidas Originals tracksuit. If this is precursor of things to come this weekend, we are totally on board because, um, peep those shoes y'all. PINK. POODLE. SNEAKERS. *dies*
You might've noticed that we can't stop talking about prom. Even though we've covered everything from affordable dresses to celebrity-inspired hairstyles, we've just barely scraped the surface—particularly in the dude department. If you're a guy looking for style tips for the big night (or his date looking for some much-needed advice!), you've come to the right place. We've got head-to-toe ensembles that'll have you lookin' sharp on prom night, and, no, none of these looks involve a tux. (You're welcome.)
THE CLASSIC COOL DUDE
A traditional (and awesome) prom look!
For the guy that wants to look traditionally handsome, we recommend this killer gray suit from Zara ($238.00) that has a contrasting black collar along the top. Finish the look with crisp white, round collar shirt ($49.90), a skinny black tie ($69.50), polka dot pocket square (or one that matches her gown) ($45.00), sleek black oxfords ($338.00), and call it a day!
Adele on the May issue of 'ELLE.'

No joke, we were in the middle of reading a piece about Adele's potential wedding dress (it might be designed by Jenny Packham!) when this GORGEOUS ELLE magazine cover landed in our inbox. We were all, "OMG, OMG, OMG," until we realized she's also rotating covers with Rita Ora and Alicia Keys for the May Women in Music issue. Yasss! For Adele's look, they decided to amp up her soft-yet-stunning retro glamor vibe by shooting in the iconic EastWest Studios, which is famous for recording Frank Sinatra's greatest hits. Her black lace Alberta Ferretti dress was the perfect backdrop against her STUNNING beauty game—a killer bouffant with a soft smoky eye, nude lips, and a touch of shimmery bronzer. Perf!
YSL's Couture Tie & Dye nail polish.

So, we've already picked out our favorite must-have manis for Coachella this weekend (think: palm trees, peace signs and tribal print), but for the not-so-artistically-inclined folks, this news comes as kind of a bummer. But, hey, don't be too sad about your lack of painting skills just yet—YSL released a set of super cool "tie-dye" top coats that'll add an ombre effect to whatever polish you swipe it on. Let us explain! The La Laque Couture Tie and Dye collection (which comes in four colors: Cool, Pop, Hit, and Ice) has three different finishes layered inside one bottle. The bottom is infused with glitter, the center is a sheer tinted shade, and the top is straight-up clear gloss. If you dip the brush in and use as-is, it'll give your nails that killer gradient effect, but if you shake it up, it'll add an even, shimmery tinted top coat to put over your favorite colors (or bare nails!)
Ever since Mariah Carey released her twelfth (yes, twelfth!) fragrance "Dreams" nearly a month ago, I couldn't stop thinking about it. The American Idol judge/all-around diva described the scent as a mix of vanilla, honeysuckle, and salted caramel apple, which represented her transition "from childhood to performing on the world's stage, to being in love, to feeling loved." Needless to say, I was intrigued—intrigued enough, in fact, to actually take this scent for a spin. Like, IRL. The bottle came in a purple box complete with her Category 5 wind-blown campaign photo (above) and inside lay the oh-so-fitting butterfly-adorned fragrance. Much to the avail of my nearby co-workers, I doused myself in the stinky stuff and took to the streets, er, cubicles to find out what others thought about her new scent. The catch? I didn't give them any hints as to who made it/where it came from, and this is what they said.
