Kurt Cobain

Typically when we think back on classic grunge style, our minds are flooded with a deluge of plaid flannel and Doc Martens. Oft overlooked but integral to Seattle grunge poster boy Kurt Cobain's signature steez was the nubbly, haphazardly worn, thick-knit sweater. We're looking back at the Nirvana frontman's iconic knitwear not just because it's autumn-appropriate or because we just miss them, but also because in honor of 20 years passing since the band's final album In Utero, we've just unearthed clips of the band's 1993 "Live and Loud" concert, performances of "Heart-Shaped Box" and "Rape Me" and previously vaulted, never-before-seen nuggets of "Very Ape" and "Radio Friendly Unit Shifter" from the group's rehearsals and dude's brass buttoned Grandpa cardigan is giving us serious sweater envy.

That's a wrap! From 3D glasses-wearing, popcorn-chomping Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to that impossible to forget Breaking Bad breakdancing, the 2013 Emmy Awards definitely gave us some moments to talk about (also, like, every winner's place of birth). But being that #FASHUN is our thing, we're here to wrap up our favorite style moments of the night. From Kiernan Shipka to Kate Mara, these are the dresses we liked best.

KIERNAN SHIPKA IN DELPOZO

Mad Men's Kiernan Shipka may only be 13 (going on 14 this November!), but she CONSISTENTLY stays killing it on red carpet after red carpet. We love her midi-length Delpozo dress with its colorfully embroidered floral bodice and daintily printed and appliquéd skirt. Kiernan (and/or her apparently genius stylist) kept the look age appropriate with a just-disheveled-enough wavy ponytail and fresh-faced makeup with pretty pink lips and the BEST brow game.

A$AP Rocky

So long as A$AP Rocky keeps wearing clothes this well, people will keep using that "Fashion Killa" monicker. In a recent spread for Purple magazine (revealed on Tumblr via photographer Terry Richardson and his Terry's Diary), Rocky proves the nickname is still appropriate (and probably always will be). Throughout the shoot, nothing but his clothes change: his hair stays the same, nobody touches his mug with moody facepaint, he gets no superfluous props—just a man, his braids, and a SLEW of outfits. First up, blue and black Alexander Wang flannel worn over an A.P.C. white tee.

The designers Dolce & Gabbana may be in hot water, sentenced to prison for tax evasion, and enduring multiple lawsuits, but that's not stopping Riff Raff from glorifying the design duo in his latest single and music video. Titled "Dolce & Gabbana," the track's hook hammers home that the Neon Icon only devotes time to ladies who rep the Italian label. (Miley, Katy and ScarJo, looks like today's your lucky day!) With a title like that, you can expect more fashion lyrics where that came from, so we pulled out our favorite style-centric lines and set them over stills from Jody Highroller's hilarious new video. Enjoy!

The blow of the end of this second season of The Newsroom is somewhat softened by its uncharacteristically happy ending (and teetering on the brink of the fall TV season *exhaaaaaaales*), but there are just no two ways around it: we're going to miss Neal Sampat (Dev Patel) and his elegant grandfather cardigan game.

Maybe we were too wrapped up in reacquainting ourselves with Aaron Sorkin's mile-a-minute dialogue in the first season, but this second season, we just couldn't help admiring the excellent layering job done by ACN's resident tech whiz kid and feeling like we needed to rethink that frumpy emergency "work cardigan" we leave draped on the backs of our desk chairs. (Oh, COME ON, you all have them!!)

Lady Gaga

Just when you start to get used to a look on Lady Gaga, she switches it up on you again. We've been pretty much chronicling the every quick-change of Gagaloo's strawberry blonde, BIG, wavy "Botticelli Babe" 'do from every clam shell bra to bedazzled Versace jumpsuit to motion-restrictive Comme des Garçons. Only to have it all turned on its head with the release of her October cover for Elle magazine. Along with the dramatic cover which only features half of Gaga's face enveloped in a louche frame of green and black satin and white and pink furs, we were given a peek at two inside pages of the cover spread—both soft, ethereal, and taken creepily through windows from far away. Now, thanks to a behind-the-scenes video Gaga tweeted, the stalker-esque shoot gets some context.

Here at MTV Style, we're pretty shameless about our love of food. We keep a snack drawer stocked year-round. If your event includes a meal, we RSVPed last week. We're in constant pursuit of chips, but we've also never met a granola bar we didn't like. Most of all, though, we reeeeeally like when fashion and food come together. We even devoted a whole weekly franchise to it called Food Friday. Welp, for New York Fashion Week, we took that love to the next level (OK, maybe several next levels) by wearing some of our favorite food-themed clothes to the "tents" at Lincoln Center.

"Fabulous" is, admittedly, an oft overused word, but never have I ever FULLY understood what it meant until meeting David and Phillipe Blond (better known as The Blonds) and seeing their work up close. Sure, you can tell from photographs that their curve-glorifying silhouettes, heavy with gems and crystals like the world's most glamorous barnacles, are major show-stoppers and how that has made them go-to designers for the high octane performance outfits of all your favorite pop stars: Katy Perry, Ke$ha, Beyonce, Selena Gomez, and, like, infinity more. But seeing the pieces first-hand, glittering less than a foot from your eyeballs? That's another story entirely.

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