Since she first burst on the scene, Rita Ora's love of sneakers has been an integral part of her personal steez. Her love's a pretty unconditional one, wearing them with literally everything and not discriminating between classics and platforms. Jordans, however, are her absolute fave. Still in the Nike fam, Rita posted a super cute picture of herself to Instagram repping a pair of crisp white Air Force 1s with a matching all-white outfit and referencing lyrics from British rapper Dizzee Rascal.
Could Kanye be working on another larger fashion project?

He's designed for ladies. He's designed for dudes. Now, it's rumored that Kanye West is designed for BOTH at the same time. Buried in a story with the headline, "Kanye West back in LA with Kim K," New York Post reports that Yeezus "is now prepping a unisex collection of about 100 pieces, we hear, to be revealed during the fall fashion shows." Say whaaaaaa? I mean, we definitely wouldn't be surprised to hear Ye's on to his next fashion project. For a dude who's penned the lyrics, "Don't talk about style, I'll embarrass you," that just seems an inevitable truth, no? But 100 unisex pieces? How is that even possible?
Way better than a 500 Benz, AMIRITE?

Happy Friday, y'all! We're kicking this one off with everyone's favorite NOM-focused shopping franchise: FOOD FRIDAY! *tosses up fistful of glitter and French fries, follows with jazz hands* On the menu this week, we have the MTV Style order-in staple: sushi. When it's a sweat-inducing 99 degrees in the city, the last thing you want to do is go outside, let alone jack up the temperature in your apartment by turning on the stove. Thus, sushi has become our culinary savior as we crawl through the dog days of summer. Since we just can't turn off the little voice in our brains that asks, "But what's the fashion angle?" (even about the most mundane observations in our lives), we decided that sushi deserved a shopping homage. Surprisingly, there's actually a ton of fun stuff out there that capitalizes on our love of the iconic Japanese food. Check it out!

If you haven't seen Demi Lovato's "Made in the USA" music video, stop what you're doing right now and hit play. We're pretty sure nothing encapsulates the sunkissed skin, hair blowing in the wind, free feeling of summer in the good ol' U.S. of A. quite as sweetly as Demi's new video and track. (P.S. As Lovatics already know and are way stoked on, "Made in the USA" is also D's directorial debut!) And to add the rampant Americana cherry on top, Demi spends the entire vid clad in *drumrolllll* you guessed it! DENIM. The combination of it all—blonde-haired, blue-jeaned Demi and the super-sweet Aimee Teegarden #texasforever—is giving us so much shop-lust and totally convincing us that we need more denim in our closets. SO, naturally, we went online shopping, and now, we're going to share with you what we've found. ENJOY!

High-waisted jeans, thin leather belt, button-up shirt tucked into the high-waisted jeans. These are lyrics from Seattle-based Don't Talk To The Cops' "Gimme That '80s Butt" song, but they're ALSO an itemized breakdown of our daily uniform over hurr at MTV Style. You see, every era (and sub/counter-culture within that era, but for simplicity's sake let's just cap it at decades) has its silhouette: the '50s had poodle skirts, prim polos, and ponytails (try saying that three times fast!), the '60s ventured into mod, mini territory, the '70s had spread collars, macrame, and bell bottoms, etc. etc. ad infinitum. We won't be able to keenly discern the hallmark outfit shape of the 2010s until way after the fact, but one thing is for sure, and heavily underscored by DTTTC's track: we're borrowing so. much. '80s butt.
Welp, it looks like that half-sleeve might not have been the end goal for Justin Bieber's left arm after all. We (and over 9 million Beliebers who follow Biebs on Instagram) woke up this morning to not only a brand new 2013 VMA nomination alongside will.i.am for "#thatPOWER," but ALSO, a brand new tattoo inked RIGHT on the inside pit of Justin's elbow. It's an eye. That, we guess, "blinks" when he clenches up his arm. Justin posted the caption, "@bangbangnyc did this art ., Moms always watching ," with the close-up shot of his new ink, which means this is yet another celeb tatt that famed BangBang NYC can add to his roster of star clients.
Kendrick Lamar for BULLETT magazine.
THANK YOU, BULLETT, for this spread and feature of Kendrick Lamar (a.k.a. Benz-is-to-me-just-a-car)! You see, even though we've been bumping good kid, m.A.A.d city for almost a full year now, we're still beside ourselves with excitement when dude shows up in a fashion editorial. He's widely regarded as one of the most talented lyricists in the game right now, a shining light for the future of hip-hop, but what isn't as heavily chattered about is Kendrick's love and connection to style. Thankfully, BULLETT's been paying attention and swaddles him here in a Balenciaga shirt, Alexander Wang shorts AND boxing gloves (because, duh), a Lynn Ban earring, and a massive gold Versace heavyweight championship belt.
Calling all Directioners! We need to talk about the new trailer for the "Best Song Ever" music video that One Direction just dropped on Twitter. More specifically, we want to talk about this Harvey "character." The clip starts out panning over the Hollywood Hills with the iconic Hollywood sign now reading "One Direction," and a grizzly-voiced narrator hypes up the REAL launch of 1D's "Best Video Ever," starring Harvey, the above-right suited, bearded, pot-bellied "Studio Exec."
Beyonce performs in new stage outfit during "The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour" show in Houston, TX.

Last night, Beyonce and her The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour rolled through the Knowles homestead: Houston, Texas. And much like us, Bey's homecoming brought not only a fanatically loyal audience who've been following her career since Girl's Tyme (and likely, a home-cooked meal from Miss Tina), but ALSO a trip to Target. Big box stores are hard to come by in the city, and given the sheer volume of people, by the time you make your way to one, the stock is thoroughly picked through (style savvy + low prices = so many popped tags and empty hangers).
