Packing up.

You know how sometimes you look at your closet—which is overflowing to the point where you have several shirts all living on the same hanger and it takes ALL of your core strength to move things around—and you wonder whether you should (a) weed through it to give some stuff away, (b) send a shipment to live at your mom’s house, or (c) just move? This is one of those times.

I’m happy to report that we’re going (mostly) with the latter because we found a sweet new spot with a Mariah-episode-of-Cribs sized walk-in closet. JUST FOR OUR SHOES.

From here on out, you can find all your MTV Style faves at our shiny new address, which is tricked out with granite countertops, an indoor/outdoor pool, and responsive web design. We'll also continue to update our Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram, YouTube, and Google+ accounts, so follow us there and you won't miss any of this:


Emma Watson

It's no secret that Emma Watson's red carpet style is on point—I mean, she wore pants under a backless gown to the 2014 Golden Globes. She's not playing around. What was not so obvious until recently, however, is her equally envious ability to accessorize. We noted her jewelry collection at this year's Oscars, but she's also started accessorizing her hair and, TBH, each style she tries pairs perfectly with her outfit and doesn't overwhelm at all. We bow down.

At last night's London premiere of Noah, Emma wore silver and gold jewels on the right side of her updo. They appeared to be casually thrown in, but they transform a relatively simple look to a sleek one. Hi, perfect prom 2014 hair inspiration.

Will you be our person?

Hey guys, BIG NEWS. HUGE, really. So, I've been the Senior Editor at MTV Style for a couple of years now and had an absolute blast but it's time for me to move on! I mean, let's not be dramatic, it's not like I'm going SUPER FAR or anything, I'm actually going to continue to serve y'all as Editor-At-Large while working on some awesome, clandestine personal projects (I'm joining the CIA! Shhhhhhhhhh.). I'll still check in intermittently for urgent things like Grammys, Fashion Week etc etc so you won't even know I'm gone. I'm STOKED (MTV totally threw in a gold watch with "emeritus" inscribed on the back in cursive and everything).

The part that actually concerns you is that: MTV STYLE IS HIRING A SENIOR EDITOR. Dun dun duuuuuuuuuuun! The only way to toss your name in the hat and then lob the hat in the ring is to apply for the job online. If you choose to email or call me directly, YOU FAIL. If you decide to descend upon our offices like a pestilence and wheat-paste your resume all over our building, YOU FAIL. Should you elect to airdrop an enormous bribe in the form of DELICIOUS CANDY, YOU FAIL (but by such a slender margin that we can't possibly dissuade you from at least trying).

Here's what we're looking for:


Did you know that young people between the ages of 18 and 29 make up the country's largest voting bloc in this country? It's true, with 45 million young, eligible voters, you're one of the, if not THE most powerful group of voices voting in this election. President Obama is well aware of this, which is why he's talking directly to you, answering your questions, and addressing the issues that young people are about most, today at 5 PM EST (tape delayed on the West Coast). "Ask Obama Live: An MTV Interview With The President" will air on MTV, MTV2, MTV U, MTV Hits, and MTV Jams, as well as across all of our social platforms. Sway will be interviewing the president, who will also be answering your questions! It will all begin at 4:45 PM, with a pre-show hosted by Andrew Jenks and Georgetown students. Watch it right here, and head over to "Power of 12" for more information on the election.

Christmas in July? It's actually happening, at least for Target and Neiman Marcus, who announced this morning that they're teaming up on...drumroll, please- a holiday gift collaboration! (Pause for excited screams). The two giant, albeit very different, retailers have joined forces to produce a collection of 50 various products designed by 24 CFDA designers. This means high fashion heavyweights like Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler, Rodarte, Rag & Bone, and Jason Wu will lend their stylish genius to everything from clothing to pet gear to home decor, all available to buy in stores and online starting December 1st. Are you freaking out yet?! Because we totally are....

MTV Style 2nd Birthday Cat

Settle down, so I can eat you!

Die-hard MTV readers know that our 2nd birthday isn't actually until tomorrow, but if you fall within this elite tier of human (go ahead and brush your shoulders off), you ALSO know that we will use aaaaany excuse available to gorge on cupcakes, Swedish Fish, and other assorted sweets. Thus, we're starting the celebration a day early this year, and if you keep whining about it, we reserve the right to kick you out of this party.

We will officially be two years old tomorrow, and we've definitely come a long way since birth back in 2010 and even since our birthday just last year. We've learned to walk. Heck, we're even running a little. We witnessed the cast of Jersey Shore go retro for Jimmy Fallon, watched Lauren Conrad embrace her wild side, and it was on the 2011 Video Music Awards red carpet that Beyonce unveiled the baby bump heard 'round the world.

Dudes. You have NO idea how excited I am to let y'all know that we are hiring a full-time editorial person. That person is either going to be an associate editor or an editor. I know it sounds all loosey-goosey to say "EITHER" and then to go ahead and tack on the understood parenthetical of "(commensurate with experience)" but we're BIG (huge, really) on making sure the right person gets hired even if the pedigree is a little on the green side or SUPER O.G. The job description as a whole, like, soup to nuts, is available online for your perusal so go to there.

We want a SUPER ORGANIZED dude or lady who can write/edit his/her face off and understands SEO, and whose brain gets really itchy when things aren't orchestrated in a synchronous manner. OH, and they have to get a major accomplishment high when they check things off their list and the editorial calendar is GLEAMING and they've read a bajillion news items from eleventy trillion sources. Please be fun to work with and bring candy once in a while, aaaaaaaaaand please don't email me or my boss directly. You can apply for the job here.

Oh, hay. We here at MTV Style are hardworking individuals. I know that because I am the sort of tired where your tear ducts feel spicy from lack of sleep and your knees crack every single time you get up from a chair. AHAHHAHAHHA wait, I just realized that could 100 percent be attributable to the fact that I am as old as the moon. Regardless, this serves as a housekeeping notice to let you, our dear readers, know that starting tomorrow we are all going on vacation. Like, ALL OF US. I know the internet will continue to barrel on in that punishingly voracious way that it does, to where it feels like the room is filling with poisonous gas, but in celebration of the holidays, mirth, booze, and rejuvenation we will only be publishing a post or two a day leading up to January.

In the interim, feel free to catch up on bygone posts, but please don't let our patch of the information superhighway grow over and be forgotten. Keep us in your hearts as we will with y'all, and happy holidays! Don't fight too hard with your family, eat way more than is necessary for a human being, drive carefully wherever you go, and we'll see you next year. Peas. xoxo

Our ecstatic birthday meows.

Once upon a time, MTV said, "Let there be light!" And by light, they meant strobes, with sequins, and in soft focus as to not show any of our frown lines. So we were birthed, naked and squirming, on to the infinitely warm cyberspace. One year later, we have shed our infant skins and have become toddlers, teetering our way on slightly precarious platforms through the internet.

In short, today is our birthday. The big oh one. So much has happened in our mere 365 days: We found out we were "Born This Way." We watched JWOWW go from Jersey to red carpet-ready... Jersey-style. We gasped in both excitement and fear when Emma Watson cut her hair (like most major changes, we've adjusted, and have grown to love it).

Because we are not one to revel in our own glory (our small, trembling lumps of glory), we've decided to give back to you, our reader. So we've made you some birthday gifs. But, MTV Style, you say, we thought you were writers? Where is the "T" in that previous sentence? Nope. Birthday gifs. In which we take our favorite stories since our inception and retell them in a single, perhaps jarring, gif form. And then, for kicks we have a couple of factoids to share with you to prove how much we've grown. (The answer to that: a lot.)

Soon, we'll be potty-trained and able to sit at the big kids table. But for now, we'll keep you up to date on the coolest fashion news PON DE WEB (which is, we like to think, what we do best).

1:56 pm - Hey guys, so I'm typing this from the cramped corners of our satellite MTV Style HQ on the Universal Lot and I'm flanked by 1 double espresso, 1 20 oz iced coffee and, of course, a can of Coke Zero. In short, I'm AMPED to get this live blog cracking. Or having a MASSIVE coronary. Which is fine (such are the sacrifices I'm willing to make for y'all), as long as I get to see R. Pattz FIRST. Oh, and for more behind-the-scenes movie award gossip check out our pals at Hollywood Crush who are live blogging their faces off.

2:04 pm - Oh, and in case you're wondering, I'm wearing Norma Kamali. And Jeffrey Campbell nude suede Litas. I can't do a non-platform for the THREE HOURS I'll be perched alongside Christian Siriano. Hmm... three hours? I should probably quit guzzling all this garbage what with caffeine being a diuretic...

4:17 pm - BRB. Gotta slather on sunblock and go golf cart it over to interview Lupe Fiasco.

6:29 pm - Zomg guys! Christian's heeeeeeere! We're posted up in the scorching heat. The papps are bananas.

6:31 pm - Red carpet to commence shortly. I wonder who's gonna be first. P.S.: Christian's wearing very glamorous patent leather shoes.

6:35 pm - Correction! Painted shoes! Shiny, aaaaand Dior.

6:36 pm - Brad Walsh tells us his double-breasted raw silk blazer is from his women's collection.

6:37 pm - Oooooh, the Twilight cast is trickling in!

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
