miley cyrus

So la da di da di, twisted knots up like Mi-ley.

There isn’t a whole lot of hair on Miley Cyrus’ head these days, but we gotta give a girl credit where credit is due—she sure has found a ton of ways to wear it. Mussed to the left, tussled to the right, bouffant, fauxhawk, voluminous spikes! I’d imagine that the amount of styling gel that girl goes through in a week could fully submerge a normal-sized human in a bathtub, AMIRITE? (Free business idea: Miley-branded hair goop!?)

But before she went pixie, the VMA nominee/performer was all about the topknots. And now that she’s actively trying to grow her hair out again, she seems to have found a way to pay homage to the style she used to rock on the reg with itty-bitty raver buns! Since admitting to Kelly Osbourne on E!’s Fashion Police that she’s been “secretly tugging on [her hair] every night” and taking growth vitamin supplements, Miley’s been snapped twisting two tiny knots up on top of her head pretty frequently. It’s punky, low-maintenance (not to mention low-gel) and cute without being darling. So will this be her hairstyle of choice for this year’s VMAs?

Jay Z

Rebecca Romijn interviews rapper Jay-Z (in Rocawear) at the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards.

Talk about a Throwback Thursday! Back before Kanye West was selling out high fashion white tee collaborations, before A$AP Rocky was a fashion killa, there was a Brooklyn boy by the name of Jay Z (though, it had a hyphen then) building himself from a businessman into a "business, man" with a little streetwear line he dubbed Rocawear. Using Roc-A-Fella Records as the foundation, Mr. Shawn Carter and his long-time business partner Damon Dash decided they would spin the MC's success into other creative business avenues. Before Hov was rocking Tom Ford, he was making a sartorial name for the R-O-C. And on what red carpet did Jay rep Rocawear in its debut year? The 1999 VMAs, DUH.

Here's a realization that’s going to blow your mind/make you feel old: This year’s VMAs will mark the 10-year anniversary of one seriously may-jah OMG moment, when Britney Spears, in booty-baring bridal wear, got an open-mouth kiss from Madonna during their mash-up performance (with a fake-and-baked Christina Aguilera) of “Like A Virgin”/”Hollywood.” But that wasn't Britney’s only OMG VMA moment! When MTV talked to Ariana Grande about her upcoming VMA pre-show performance (where she'll sing a mash-up of her two hit singles, “Baby I” and “The Way”), Grande named Spears’ “Slave 4 U” snake-charming stunt from 2001 as her favorite moment in VMA history. So would Grande dare to wear a giant reptile for her big debut?

Oh, red carpet. With the exception of the occasional summer blockbuster premiere, these warmer months are generally devoid of step-and-repeat steez. Luckily, come August, there's always the Teen Choice Awards (and of course, our own VMAs later this month #shamelessplug). The 2013 TCAs certainly didn't let us down in the well-dressed PYT department, and even though it was pretty much impossible, we did our best to whittle it down to the top looks of the night from Demi Lovato to Hailee Steinfeld and everyone in between.

Lovatics were treated to two Demi outfits as didn't just attend but also hit the stage to perform her single, "Made In The USA." On the carpet, D wore a black satin brocade blazer (which was swapped out for a leather jacket on stage), relaxed fit white tee, leather leggings, and black platform booties. Angling for a rock edge, the look was finished with layered silver necklaces, heavy smoky eyeliner, and a dramatic half-up half-down 'do with a high pompadour.

One Direction

Take notes, boys. One Direction has just served up a catalogue's worth of model dude outfits for fall at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards. We've watched this 5-piece boy band grow from meticulous color-coordination to the loose use of denim as a wardrobe unifier. This latest red carpet and stage showing, though? That's just exemplary laid-back guy styling at its best. Let's start with 1D's TCAs arrival. Every dude showed up in a pair of jeans of varying washes and silhouettes (stone-washed relaxed fit for Liam, dark resin and cuffed for Louis, white and tight for Zayn, vintage wash and slim fit for Niall, and basically painted-on for Harry). The guys' shoe game is out of this world, and almost every one of them wore an excellent transitional jacket, save Harry who chose instead to wear a collared shirt unbuttoned just below his diaphragm and a wide-brimmed felt hat. Very John Mayer, no?

KAWS, VMA Moonman

Heads up, Brooklyn! On Sunday, August 25, the VMAs are setting up shop at the Barclays Center for this year's night of doling out music video honors—the first major awards show to ever take place in BK. This being SUCH a landmark occasion, we had to make it special, so for the first time in the show's 30-year history, the Moonman is getting a one-time makeover courtesy of New York-based artist Brian Donnelly, better known as KAWS.

MTV News' James Montgomery caught up with the design icon at his Brooklyn studio, both to peep the special-edition statuette which reimagines the OG Moonman in combination with KAWS' Companion—the grayscale, Mickey Mouse-inspired skull-and-crossbones character—right down to the double button-front shorts and to chat about the artist's ties to Brooklyn. Technically, KAWS grew up in Jersey City, then moved to Manhattan's Lower East Side for school before eventually moving to BK, but he's laid claim to the borough for the past 13 years. Therefore, it totally counts. Also, words alone can't accurately convey how stoked we are to fold Donnelly and his inimitable aesthetic into our VMA history, so we'd probably fudge the details to make it work no matter what. (JK, we'd never lie to you!)

Despite sweltering Los Angeles heat, the ladies at tonight's 2013 BET Awards put on their awards show best and turned it out (and up!) on the red carpet. Keeping it season-appropriate, there were very few attempts at gowns (props to Nicki Minaj), with the majority of the night's stunners swinging toward shorter, more summery hemlines. It was a tough job narrowing down our top picks, but that didn't keep us from trying. Peep our selects and tell us if you agree below!

I don't know about you, but a teeny leather bandeau bralette and a pencil skirt aren't exactly my idea of a comfortable outfit, but Ciara makes this look like second skin. C styled Saint Laurent ensemble with simple metallic pointed-toe pumps, silver bangles, and an asymmetrical cropped 'do.

Nicki Minaj 2013 Bet Awards

If there's one person that took over tonight's BET Awards, it definitely had to be Ms. Nicki Minaj. Sure, she might've skipped the red carpet, but she managed to switch up her ensemble three (!!!) times during the show. Her first outfit was a decked OUT bustier complete with rhinestones, zipper detailing and a garter belt. She paired this strapless top with simple black skinnies, pointy silver pumps, and bright red stiletto nails. She managed to keep the same, sleek platinum bob throughout each outfit change, which we LOVE.

OK, y'all can just get down on your knees and bow down right now—Mariah Carey straight-up KILLED. IT. at tonight's BET Awards. We were a little skeptical when we didn't spot her on the red carpet, but she made up for it tenfold when she appeared onstage in a head-to-toe sparkling silver ensemble. She wore a short, white strapless frock with a fishnet sheath covered with intricate brocade detailing. She accessorized with stacked diamond bracelets, INSANE diamond earrings, pointy silver pumps, and, yes, even a bedazzled microphone. #DIVASTATUS

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