Just when you thought it was quiet out in the beauty/style space for Justin Bieber (well, save that very relaxed adidas NEO campaign and Zach Galifinakis ragging on his hairstyles), KidRauhl has just reinvigorated interest in his latest (third) fragrance, The Key. Not with new campaign images or another fancy hotel-set commercial. Nope. He released an app. More specifically, an alarm clock app. For his fragrance. Does this compute?
If you're a little lost, we don't blame you. Sleep and perfumes don't often (ever?) go hand-in-hand. The rationale, we believe, is that the entire fragrance campaign has revolved around the idea of Bieber somehow unlocking your bedroom door (y'know, with The Key) to visit you at night. Whether that's in your dreams or IRL is left ~up to the imagination~.

AHH! FINALLY! The moment we've been waiting for since we caught our first few seconds of the track: the inevitable reveal of a music video for A$AP Rocky's "Fashion Killa"! We KNEW a song that laundry lists as many high fashion labels as this one would guarantee a star-spangled music video wardrobe, but this is so much more than that. Not only does the short boast Rihanna in a major starring role, but Rocky and Virgil Abloh are also perched together for co-director credits. Talk about major. As is customary whenever a stylish new music video rolls through, we're breaking this guy down look by look!

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.

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.

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!

Dev Patel as Neal Sampat on Season 2 Episode 5 of HBO's "The Newsroom."
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!!)

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.
