Matching is SO overrated. At least that's the case with Max Osterweis and Erin Beatty, the founders of New York label Suno. Since its inception back in 2008, the brand has won a well-deserved cult following for its mishmash of fabrics, colors, and exotic patterns, all of which are sourced everywhere from Kenya to Peru to its home base in Manhattan. It's easy to swoon over the eye-popping goods at Fashion Week and on stars like Solange, but it's decidedly tougher to work up the spare change to snag a Suno original for our own personal wardrobes. Until now, that is, because Max and Erin are the latest additions to Uniqlo's Designer Invitation Project and are officially joining forces with the mega-retailer on a capsule of pattern-perfect designs. Filled with floral motifs and stripes that take cues from "Japanese Americana" (as well as their own runway pieces, as evidenced above), the collection is a total prints PARTY, and everyone's closet is invited. So who's in!?
Sure, it might look simple, but let's be real here— packing your purse for prom is NO easy task. If you're doing the whole pre-prom photo sesh, fancy dinner, the dance itself, and the after-party, well, chances are you'll need a bunch of stuff to get you through this epic marathon night. So let's talk strategy, shall we?! First of all, the bag you're carrying will most likely be a tiny clutch, which is heavy on the style factor but not so much on the whole practicality thing. If you're still on the hunt for a bag, we're loving this seafoam green envelope clutch from ASOS, the Jillian Minaudiere sparkly number from Club Monaco, and House of Harlow's reptile pouch for their slightly-larger-than-average storage capability and undeniable chicness. But regardless of which clutch you bring, the stuff you take with you will need to be small, posses multitasking capabilities... or better yet, both. Because NOBODY wants to be left stranded on prom night, we've dutifully rounded up our favorite tried-and-true essentials to pack in your purse in case of any beauty emergency. See our must-bring list of products below!
Rihanna wears Tom Ford at the 2012 Met Gala.

As the presumed man behind Justin Timberlake's slick makeover for The 20/20 Experience, it's not exactly a secret that Tom Ford likes to dip his fingers into the music world every now and then. But it turns out JT is only one in Ford's lengthy love affair with performers. In a new interview with WWD, the designer tells editor Bridget Foley about his re-entry into the runway world, how he handles critics, and why shocking audiences can sometimes be a good thing. And really, who's better proof of that last point than Rihanna?! Ford dishes that the singer is one of his favorite muses because she can rock the eponymous label's signature eye-popping looks with serious swagger. Recalling a tricky head-to-toe pink patchwork look from his Fall 2013 collection, Ford says, "And if you’re Rihanna, if you’re that kind of person who can pull off matching hot-pink boots, skirt and jacket, and patchwork multimaterials, I think it's great." Great. Yet another skill Rihanna magically possesses that 99% of the population can only DREAM of having...

Are you awake?! If you're not quite there yet, this image of Emma Watson holding a handgun will DEFINITELY kick your Wednesday morning into high gear. It's a new day, and you know what that means: new Bling Ring deets, you guys! We're still reliving Emma's Trailblazing golden popcorn moment from last weekend's MTV Movie Awards, and admittedly can't get TBR cast's Sneak Peek Week show out of our heads. But now that we've nabbed these movie stills, there's even more reason to be obsessed with the forthcoming Sofia Coppola flick. We've got five brand spanking new images to show you, so LET'S GO!

Prom season is officially in full swing, and by now, the message should be coming through loud and clear: there's NO one right way to do prom. You could rock a short dress, you could go ultra-glam, hey, you can even go as a hamburger if you wanted...but leave it to Nasty Gal to show us some of the coolest options yet. If you know NG, then you already know that Sophia Amoruso & co. have never really done things the traditional way. Luckily, the retailer's "break all the rules" philosophy applies to their newest lookbook as well, aptly titled "Anti-Prom." Stocked with tons of dresses (duh), plus unexpected pieces like spiky stud accessories, leather jackets, and even bright blue creepers, this is prom like you've never seen it before (and it's awesome).
Selena Gomez in Julien MacDonald and Marco Marco at 2013 MTV Movie Awards red carpet.

I think we can ALL agree that Selena Gomez hit a fashion home run at the MTV Movie Awards this Sunday, ruling the red carpet and stage in not just one, but two gorgeous traffic-stopping ensembles. In addition to that shimmery gold Julien MacDonald minidress she rocked during the pre-show, Sel heated things up big time for her sizzling performance of her new single "Come and Get It" in a Bollywood-inspired Marco and Marco number. But what's the real story behind this pair of eye-popping looks?! InStyle got the scoop from Selena's stylist herself, Basia Richard. According to Richard, that glitzy red carpet ensemble was originally intended for the performance (!), but "Selena fell so in love with this dress that it was instantly her first choice for the carpet." In the end, though, Sel went with a fiery red Marco and Marco piece that Richard customized with Swarovski crystals and gold details, which, heads up, we'll see again in an upcoming video!
Ke$ha at the 2013 Logo NNN Awards.

Ke$ha's self-described '70s-inspired look from last night's MTV Movie Awards might still be very fresh in your brain, but tear yourself away from that ensemble for a second, because we've got another equally awesome outfit from the pop star that's also worth discussing. Just a mere 24 hours before she hit the Movie Awards red carpet in bell bottoms and a floppy hat, the singer attended the Logo NewNowNext Awards appearing, well, kind of the opposite in a pale blue short-sleeved dress. Anyone else getting major retro glam vibes from her look? "Stepford Ke$ha" meets Brigitte Bardot, indeed.
Unless you happen to be one of those lucky people who never gets hot and sweaty (seriously though, what's their sercret?!), looking cute at a festival like Coachella is a tough feat to pull off. We're talking about a situation where you're sitting outside all day under the beating sun, surrounded by thousands of pushing people all elbowing to see the same band you want to...not exactly a picture-perfect moment. But hey, it IS possible, and some of our MTV Style favorites are here to prove it. It seemed like everyone and their mother hit Indio for weekend 1 of the fest, and over the course of 72 hours, some key trends emerged. Whether it's stars like Solange sporting ladylike dresses, Karen O in crazy prints, K.Stew in her trademark snapback, or Vanessa Hudgens in a flower crown (yep, they're still around), these musicians and their famous fans manage to keep cool without sacrificing style. See how they did it below!

Alright, so we all know that Miss Solange Knowles is the reigning queen of festival dressing. Rather than stick with lazy girl options like ripped denim and cropped tops, she cranks up the quirk in retro originals like printed suits and button-ups. She rocked this look hard at SXSW, but this weekend the singer gave her signature style a ladylike spin in a lemon-print sleeveless frock and matching yellow sandals. Not that she would ever need to, but Katy Perry also proved her pinup status at the Lacoste party decked out in a Dolce & Gabbana skirt and bra set (also the same one Iggy Azalea wore in her "Work" music video). Then there's Jessie Ware, rounding out the trio in a red and white striped crop top and printed tea length skirt. Whereas Solange and Katy opted for heels, Jessie shed her shoes to go barefoot during her performance. She topped off her look with some raver pigtail buns, and somehow, we love her even more than before.
Will Ferrell and Rihanna both sported all-over money print, but who did it better?.

There were MANY shocking things about Will Ferrell's cameo at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards last night. And although his, um, unexpected encounter with Aubrey Plaza on stage is providing more than enough water cooler convo this morning, the comedian's all-over money print suit is the image that's forever burned into our eyeballs. And you know what? We're not even mad about it! Strutting out onstage (to the tune of Pusha T's "Millions," natch), yesterday's "Comedic Genuis" winner gave a whole new meaning to the term "money shot." But our man Will isn't the only one turning the Benjamins into a fashion statement these days—someone ELSE who appreciates a good dollar bill motif every now and then is Rihanna, who wore a holographic money print dress last month during her Diamonds World Tour.
'Teen Wolf' stars Holland Roden and Crystal Reed at 2013 MTV Movie Awards.

Aw, talk about team players! The stars of our favorite MTV shows turned out in droves to the MTV Movie Awards to support their Hollywood buds— ahem, and flaunt their major style game, as well. The cast of Teen Wolf rolled especially deep tonight, with six of the actors hitting the red carpet in awesomely individual ensembles. We've already dished on MTV.com Red Carpet Report Host Holland Roden's black plunging V-neck Donna Karan gown, and yeah, we're still just obsessed with it now as we were earlier this evening. But wait! There's more. Holland may have opted for one of the biggest color trends of the night in her black frock, but co-star Crystal Reed played opposites in her bright lace minidress from Nha Khanh,. With intricate embellishment and a flirty short silhouette, this dress is eyepopping enough on its own, so Crystal kept the rest of her look simple with nude Manolo Blahnik pumps and a Hepburn-esque swept updo. But the girls weren't the only ones pulling out the fashion stops... the show's dudes, Tyler Posey, Dylan O'Brien, Tyler Hoechlin, and Keahu Kahuanui were looking killer (heh), too.
