While last week on Faking It we were obsessed with Amy's jeans, suspenders, and fisherman sweater, this week we turn our attention to Karma. Even if you didn't know her name—or that her parents operate a juice truck—you would totally be able to tell that she was raised by hippies. While Amy's style is a bit more casual and masculine, Karma's is flowy and feminine. Last night's outfit is the epitome of her overall aesthetic, IMHO.

Karma has a knack for mixing colors and textures together. She's wearing a distressed denim jacket, a cotton dress, a leather belt, and a woven tote. Between where her belt is cinched and where her jacket falls, she's got her proportions on point.

If you've ever dyed your hair an ~unnatural~ color, you know the challenge that comes with trying to maintain vibrancy. Katy Perry, it seems, has decided not to fight the inevitable, but embrace it—at least in her life off-stage. As you probably know, before her Prismatic World Tour kicked off, Katy dyed her hair "slime green." Her hair was bright at various events—even at Coachella—but it seems that Katy, like any plebe, has given up on keeping it florescent. It simply requires too much work if you're into showering more than, like, once a week, TBH. For her performances, though, Katy has found the perfect way to keep it as bright as ever.

Demi Lovato is celebrating the #Demiversary (one year anniversary, natch) of the release of her last album, Demi, and has big plans for the next month, including new videos and live performances. She just released footage of her Neon Lights Tour in the form of a performance of "Neon Lights," in which we get to see some of her tour wardrobe and, most important, IMHO, how her pink hair looked up on stage. Guess what? No surprise—it looked incredible.
The video was obviously shot towards the end of the tour—Demi has her half-shaved scalp—and between her hair color, style, and embellished coat, she looks pretty tough up there. She also has leather leggings on, which just, like, knocks the entire look out of the park.

Back in November, Jennifer Lawrence was on a lot of red carpets. We got so used to seeing her every night in Dior and showcasing her new short 'do during The Hunger Games: Catching Fire promo tour that we practically forgot there was a time that she wore other designers and could put her hair in an updo. We were reminded over the weekend, however, when she wore a Jason Wu dress to the X-Men: Days of Future Past premiere and debuted her new bob.
Jennifer broke her Dior streak with a shimmery blue dress from Jason Wu's Fall 2014 collection. She kept the rest of her look simple, wearing no necklaces or bracelets, just a ring and earrings. If you're going to temporarily ditch the company you're the face of, this is the way to do it, right? This dress would be hard to pass up, TBH. Plus, it's vaguely reminiscent of Mystique, the character she plays in X-Men. If this is a subtle homage we see it and we like it, Jenn. Even bigger news than her fashion? Her new hair!
I've got some bad news if you were planning on, like, accomplishing anything before noon tomorrow. MTV is playing Maid in Manhattan, which happens to star a 10-year-old Tyler Posey. Yep, Tyler played Jennifer Lopez's son long before he played Scott McCall on Teen Wolf and we're celebrating his first major role. If you're a big Tyler fan, be sure to watch the movie starting at 9:24 a.m. EST on MTV and, if you're a really big fan, again at 5:30 p.m. EST. You can celebrate your love with fellow fans using #WeHeartTylerPosey.
We figured the best way to show why we at MTV Style heart Tyler Posey would be through his #FASHUN. The dude has come a long way since his Maid in Manhattan premiere outfit, so we need to talk about his style evolution. If you start reading now you'll have ample time to brush up before the movie premieres on MTV tomorrow. Let's start!

Check out li'l Tyler at the Maid in Manhattan premiere! While he hasn't worn a turtleneck on a red carpet since then, he wears leather jackets, jeans, and sneakers all the time–he had his wardrobe staples established at a young age. Upping the #swaggy levels of this look is that hoop earring! We see you, hoop earring. We see you and we'll never forget you.
HAPPY MOM JEANS DAY

Just in case you need a reminder: This Sunday is Mother's Day. While moms have their name associated with tons of good things, there is one stigma that follows them wherever they go. Yeah, we're talking about mom jeans. The denim style we all now associate with "mom jeans" has had a short, but full, history—in order to celebrate Mother's Day fully, we figured we should do a brief rundown of the pants. LEGGO!
Designer denim had its genesis in the 1970s, but it was in the 1980s that it really took off, beginning largely with Brooke Shields' controversial "Nothing Gets Between Me and My Calvins" ad campaign for Calvin Klein. Throughout the '80s the style shifted toward a tapered leg with a loose top, a "tight-roll" or "peg leg" style, if you will. By the early '90s, people were over the tight leg and into a looser fit on the bottom, resulting in, generally, what we would consider a baggy pair of jeans.
All one has to do to understand the popularity of the style is to glance at this cast photo from Beverly Hills, 90210. As Brenda (Shannen Doherty) and Kelly (Jennie Garth) prove, high-cut jeans with fitted legs were everywhere. These people lived in Beverly Hills and were stylish and rich—they were on top of what was going on in fashion, and this was it. It wasn't just moms who were wearing these jeans: It was everyone.
Yes please to Beyonce nail art.

Three things we're very into around these parts are nail art, Beyonce, and MTV Other, which is our main source for short shows that we share with all our friends so they think we're cool and funny (I guess it helps that we're naturally both those things *hair flip*). The trailer for the second season of Fast Food Heights just dropped, and we are so excited. Fueling our excitement? BEYONCE NAIL ART.
When you think of Miley Cyrus, two things come to mind: her tongue and her platinum pixie, right? Imagine our utter shock this morning then, when Miley posted this picture of herself as a redhead. She's not only repping a new color but a longer length and bangs. If her tongue were, IDK, in her mouth I might've had to do a double-take. That's the ~transformative power of wigs~, y'all.
Nadia Aboulhosn, Tess Munster, and GabiFresh.
If you're unfamiliar with GabiFresh, here's a quick rundown: On top of being our very first MTV TJ, Gabi is a style blogger with a focus on fashion for "younger, trendier women sizes 14 and up." She shares the outfits she wears, where to buy the pieces, as well as general style advice. Yesterday, she posted a video that caught our eye—not simply because it features a Beyonce song, but because of its positive message.
Gabi recruited Nadia Aboulhosn and Tess Munster—fellow bloggers and models—to create #everyBODYisflawless, a new video for Beyonce's "Flawless." The video, Gabi explains in her post, is to let everyone know these ladies are supportive of one another and that you don't have to be a certain size to claim flawlessness.
We've been anticipating Katy Perry's Prismatic World Tour since November. Half a year, you guys. Last night, it finally kicked off in Belfast, and it looks incredible. Where else are you going to see five humans dressed as cats on one stage? Cats isn't on Broadway anymore, sorry. While we thought we had a good idea of what to expect from all the previews Katy has been sharing throughout the past week and a half, seeing what the sketches actually look like IRL is an entirely different story. Oh, also, there were a few looks we didn't know were coming.

One of the few outfits we weren't expecting was this "Roar"-inspired ~lewk~. While in the video, Katy fashioned a regal wardrobe from things she found in the jungle. This outfit features plastic leaves and neon thigh-highs, two things you cannot find in the wilderness.
