Bow Wow stopped by MTV Style recently, and it was the perfect opportunity to find out the true definition of "fly" from someone who often raps about how fly he is. So, what qualifies as fly? Apparently, not everything. "Flywear is a Gucci sweatsuit, Gucci backpack, Gucci shades," Bow Wow told us, emphasizing his preference for high-fashion labels. What about the ladies? "The flyer you are, the more attention that you're going to attract," he says. "Would I talk to a girl if she was in the club in Ugg boots and a ripped-up something and hair all over the place? No! I'm going to talk to the girl in the dress with the heels on, nice oiled legs, and she looks good. That's who I want to be around." Well, then! Excuse us, we're going to cut this short so we can go oil up our legs. In the meantime, watch the videos below to see Bow Wow explain the definition of fly himself!



+ What does "fly" mean to you? Do you agree with Bow Wow about having oily legs?

Dancing With The Stars premiered last night, and MTV hotties represented big-time! Audrina Patridge of The Hills and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino of Jersey Shore are both on the dance show this season, which is fabulous news because they're bound to wear some amazing costumes. And their premiere outfits did not disappoint! Audrina Patridge and her partner Tony Dovolani took on a yellow theme. Audrina wore a midriff-baring banana-yellow top covered in blue rhinestones and fringe that connected to a matching yellow fringe skirt. She also wore matching yellow bangles!

Meanwhile, The Situation and his partner Karina Smirnoff went for an orange theme. Karina dressed head to toe in the hue, which complemented the orange piping on The Situation's sheer black shirt. However, his shirt was not nearly sheer enough to show off his abs "situation." And something weird happened to the length of The Situation's pants ... they make him look really short! So, who looked best? It's so close! For us, it comes down to the spray tans. Audrina's looks nice and fresh, while — gasp! — The Situation's looks a little pale. But what do you think?

+ Which MTV star look best on DWTS Audrina Patridge or The Situation?

Olivia Palermo on September 19 and Fergie on August 4.

Fergie and Olivia Palermo have the same taste in dresses with hip flaps! Fergie first wore this black dress with sheer sleeves and ochre panels to the launch party for her Avon Outspoken fragrance in Newark, N.J. on August 4, and she finished the look with Fergie Footwear "Joplin" shoes ($79 online). When we first saw this dress on Fergie, we didn't think the dress was that flattering. However, The City's Olivia Palermo proved otherwise when she wore the same dress to the Richard Nicoll fashion show yesterday during London Fashion Week. She finished the look with a chunky gold necklace and Charlotte Olympia heels (the same shoes Katy Perry wore on the cover of British Esquire). So, for this one, we vote Olivia P. But what do you think?

+ Who wore this dress better — Olivia Palermo or Fergie?

This was a HUGE week for shoes. First, the Video Music Awards happened, and insane footwear showed up on the white carpet (see our top 16 looks here). Then, we got a full breakdown of Justin Bieber's awesome high-fashion shoes and Christian Siriano's shoes for Payless. And now we've tracked down even more hot footwear! Our favorite shoes of the week have to be Carey Mulligan's Prada peep-toe sandals, which she wore to the Toronto International Film Festival on Monday. These are the same shoes Kristin Cavallari wore in August to a party in California. Sadly, our wallet can't afford these. They cost $990 at But we can dream, right?!

Justin Bieber, there's something of yours that we want. YOUR SHOES! (What did you think we were going to say?!) Because Justin Bieber's shoes are always totally awesome. His sneakers look so fresh, like they came straight out of the box, and he's always rocking a different trendy pair. We paid especially high attention to Justin Bieber's footwear at the Video Music Awards, where he wore three different pairs of black sneakers for his rehearsals and performances. Thanks to BieberShoess Twitter, we've identified all three of them. Check out Justin Bieber's three pairs below!

+ Tell us, do you like Justin Bieber's high-fashion sneakers? Which was your favorite?

For VMA performance rehearsals, Justin Bieber wore a pair of Louis Vuitton's Tower sneakers in monogram-embossed leather from the label's winter 2010 collection. These shoes are still available online, though they cost $630. Do you like Justin Bieber in these shoes?

To walk the white carpet and later accept his Moonman for Best New Artist, Justin Bieber wore a pair of Balenciaga's Patchwork sneakers from the fall collection. They sell for around $400 (visit for info). You know who else likes Balenciaga? JB's mentor Usher (see for yourself, here!). Coincidence? We think not.

Then, for his third footwear change of the weekend, Justin Bieber decided to wear Radii shoes in the Straight Jackets–All Black version. These have to be our favorite look, mainly because they are the most affordable at $71.99 per pair online. And we love the shiny patent!

New York Fashion Week just wrapped up yesterday, and it's been quite a week for MTV stars to show their faces in the front row! The ladies of The City made their presence felt: Whitney Port showed the spring collection of her Whitney Eve line, Roxy Olin showed up to Jill Stuart (wearing the same dress as Kristin Cavallari, mind you), and Olivia Palermo attended SO MANY SHOWS! The Hills ladies also had a busy week. Kristin Cavallari sat front row to at least one show per day (almost!), while Stephanie Pratt stopped by a handful of her favorites. Meanwhile, Angelina Pivarnick represented the Jersey Shore cast when she walked the runway at a fashion show. To see all the outfits the MTV stars wore during Fashion Week, see the MTV Stars at Fashion Week flipbook.

+ Tell us which MTV star had the best style at Fashion Week — Kristin Cavallari, Stephanie Pratt, Whitney Port, Roxy Olin, Olivia Palermo, or Angelina Pivarnick?

Ke$ha at the Video Music Awards. Top: Titanium Treated Quartz Ring and Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Ring.

When Ke$ha appeared on the VMA Pre-Show on Sunday, it was hard not to notice the major rocks on her right hand. They were full of color! The semiprecious rings are actually by jewelry designer Charles Albert. And the best part about these rings, they aren't thousands of dollars! The multicolor ring is named the Titanium Treated Quartz Ring, which is $200. The other ring she wore was the Sleeping Beauty Turquoise Ring, which costs $149, and both are available through So, sure, Ke$ha may have worn a dress made out of garbage bags to the 2010 Video Music Awards, but her accessories were all class. Would you wear colorful rings like Ke$ha?

While the entire Jersey Shore cast was in Los Angeles last weekend for the Video Music Awards, Jersey Shore's Angelina Pivarnick — the self-proclaimed "Kim Kardashian of Staten Island" — got herself a modeling gig at New York Fashion Week! Angelina Pivarnick walked the runway at Style360's Caravan spring 2011 fashion show on Tuesday wearing a loose short white dress with a square neckline and gold, blue, and purple pattern. Her hair was pinned in an updo that looked loaded down with gel (stealing Pauly D's ideas, are we?). But the best part about her whole look had to be her catwalk accessory ... A BULLDOG! The pup's cuteness almost steals her spotlight!

+ Do you think Jersey Shore's Angelina Pivarnick is a good model? Or were you just looking at the cute doggie? Tell us in the comments!

Whitney Port with her models. Click the picture for her collection!

The City's Whitney Port presented her third collection for her label Whitney Eve on Saturday in New York City, and we popped over to scope it out. In the crowd, we spotted BFF Samantha Swetra, as well as Louise Roe (Olivia Palermo's Elle nemesis on The City) and Elle creative director Joe Zee (Olivia Palermo's boss on The City). But strangely missing in action? Whitney's friend Roxy Olin. Where was she?! As for the clothes, the pieces are SO WHITNEY! Whitney Port showed 20 looks total for her spring 2011 collection — not including the awesome military green jumpsuit that she wore from her new season, too. And the entire collection is super cute if you're into Whitney Port's style — lots of peach and pistachio hues (as promised), some stripes mixed with sheer, and great prints from feathers to geometric patterns that look like pastel stained glass windows. Want to see the entire collection? Click here to check it out.

Hey, boys, listen up! Rapper, actor, and Akoo fashion designer Tip "T.I." Harris stopped by MTV Style recently and we asked him for some great grooming tips to pass along to his male fans. And what did he say was the most important part of a man's grooming routine? "Hygiene!" Yes, so simple, but so important! "It doesn't matter how you look as much as how you smell," he continues. "You could look good but smell bad and nobody will see you. You look bad, smell good, everybody will smell you." So true! So hop in the showers and stay clean, men of the world. T.I.'s success wasn't built on body odor.

+ Do you think T.I. is one of the most well-groomed rappers today?

Watch the video below for T.I.'s grooming secrets!
