Thanks to the 2013 mtvU Woodie Awards, yesterday was a HUGE day for the MTV family here in Austin. Situated smack dab in the midst of the SXSW music festival, so many of our favorite artists took the stage in the name of MTV. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Haim, Joey Bada$$, Trinidad James and so many more straight-up killed it yesterday, musically and sartorially.
MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS

We're pretty consistently impressed with Macklemore's performance style, but this Southwest blanket vest situation has to be Top 10 so far. I mean, HAI, the weave of this thing is unbelievably festive. Mack took the sleeveless topper off mid-way through his set, but Ryan Lewis and the laundry list of guest features kept the fashion action coming with Wanz in a red three-piece suit and printed blazer, Mary Lambet serving retro '50s steez, and Schoolboy Q rocking a Supreme hockey jersey and printed bucket hat.
What will Lady Gaga's wedding dress look like?

Holy mother of... well, monsters! Rumor has it Lady Gaga is reportedly PROBABLY mayyybe (all adverbs are necessary) getting married to her long-time boyfriend (also, extremely hot dude) Taylor Kinney *drumrolllll* THIS SUMMER! *squeals and fall backward in swivel desk chair* We will not rest until we know every minute detail of this holy matrimony and bananas theatrical reception that is sure to follow, so naturally, we're FULL of questions. Will Donatella be a bridesmaid? Will Terry Richardson be the official wedding photographer? What kind of manicure will she be working? And most importantly of all, what in the WORLD is this wedding dress going to look like????
With absolutely no leads on proposed designers (mostly because the girl is BFFs with ALL of them), we took a look back at Gaga's recent sartorial history and rounded up a few looks that might give us some clues. First up is, of course, that actual wedding dress (replete with a veil!) that she wore out on the town in London. Low-cut sweetheart neckline, billowing full skirt, delicate satin gloves — this is a recipe for eye-popping drama. The next major white dress that comes to mind is the antebellum Chanel Haute Couture Mother Monster wore for the opening of Gaga's Workshop at Barney's. Who can forget a skirt like that?
Harry Styles inks himself with a new butterfly chest tattoo.

I guess we haven't seen Harry Styles shirtless since whenever One Direction filmed their "Kiss You" music video, but the dude reportedly got inked up with this butterfly ab tattoo in January. We say "reportedly" because we've only seen this photo Harry posted to Instagram without comment or a glimpse of his signature mop top, BUT Celebuzz managed to snag a pic of a wider shot of the same image from the tattoo artist Lyam Sparkes’ Flickr page (before he deleted it) with unmistakably Harry details.
A still from "Mac Miller And The Most Dope Family."
On this week's Mac Miller And The Most Dope Family, Mac Miller and his boys venture out on the high seas for a group fishing trip, thus fulfilling one of our favorite oddities of celebrity culture: famous people doing totally regular things. Before the full episode premieres tomorrow night at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT, we have a sneak peek of Mac and his crew hitting up California's Fishermen's Spot for their boating duds. Personally, we're pretty into the whitewater crewneck Miller is already wearing, but we'll also never turn down an excuse to go shopping. As the dudes rifle through rip-stop ponchos and utility vest with thousands of pockets for baits and tackles, Mac Miller poses a question we often ask ourselves: What would Kanye wear?
You can get Selena Gomez's Alliance for Children's Rights Dinner maxi dress.

Sure, Selena Gomez slinks down red carpet after red carpet in the highest of high fashion duds on the regular, but she's also a huge proponent of the affordable side of fashion. She often comes right out and says it herself, but her actions already speak volumes, designing and fronting her own Dream Out Loud line for KMart and racking up frequent flyer miles at Forever 21 and Urban Outfitters. Her outfit of choice for last night's Alliance for Children's Rights Dinner was no exception. Sel hit the
red erm, printed carpet in UO.
A$AP Rocky covers "L'Uomo Vogue" magazine.

It would be pretty bold to say that A$AP Rocky is single-handedly making menswear a LOT more interesting for us with his unpredictable oscillation between streetwear and high fashion, but... he kind of is! Dat PMF racks up yet another fashion editorial, landing himself on the on the cover of L'Uomo Vogue's March 2013 issue. We knew it was only a matter of time before Rocky made his Vogue debut, and it only makes sense that his introduction to the legendary glossy would be via the magazine family's Italian menswear vertical. You know what also makes sense? That they would swaddle him in Milan's finest: Dolce & Gabbana. Maybe it's silly to expect anyone to get a Vogue feature but with Rocky's excellent taste, hobnobbing with designers, sitting front row, and even modeling in fashion shows, it seems only logical. Also, the Harlem fashion killa kind of already tipped us off to the new cover.
Fashion Week, especially Paris Fashion Week, is often regarded as a time for serious fashion (whatever that means). We beg to differ. From New York Fashion Week shade to London's wildest accessories to reimagining Milan Fashion Week with Beast Jesus, this has been a hilarious Fashion Month, punctuated with a giant, pizza-flavored exclamation point by Paris Fashion Week. Don't believe us? We rounded up our Top 5 favorite PFW runway photos that illustrate exactly that.
MARC JACOBS IN PAJAMAS
