Whew! We can finally rest easy, y'all—Kristen Stewart has officially been confirmed for several (!!!) more campaigns with Balenciaga, according to The Cut. Due to last summer's, erm, situation with Rupert Sanders, many were worried the Twilight star would be dropped from the French fashion house. Also, Balenciaga's creative director Nicolas Ghesquière (who is BFFs with K Stew and acquired her for the campaigns) left last fall, making us/the internet TWICE as skeptical about her future with the brand. In a recent article from 032c magazine about Nicolas' departure, Kristen confirmed her devotion to him and said, "He is a reminder of how f****** annoying everyone else is. It’s not easy to walk a line that not every single person in the world is going to get in a second. Nicolas is the sort of person who loves swimming in rough water [...] I’ve felt the happiest I’ve ever felt wearing these clothes. I’ve also felt androgynous and rigid. Sort of like you’re wearing a f****** building."
Okay, so the collision of music and fashion is anything but rare (if it were, I'm pretty sure MTV Style wouldn't exist or would at least update waaaaay less), but a three-pronged clash of music, fashion, and SPORTS?? File that unicorn of a situation under #veryrare. Enter A$AP Rocky starring and rhyming in a brand new commercial for adidas Basketball's Crazyquick sneakers—a unique moment in time which hits every vertical of the aforementioned anomaly. But he's not the only star—the campaign short also features three of the best and brightest point guards the youngest generation of NBA players has to offer: the Wizards' John Wall, the Trail Blazers' Damian Lillard, and the Sixers' Jrue Holiday.
H&M has it right. When it comes to Beyonce, you can never get enough. That's why, on TOP of putting King Bey front and center as the face of their 2013 summer collection, they're not holding back on all their exclusive Mrs. Carter images and footage. Less than a week after releasing their official Bey-fronted campaign video, the Swedish multinational retailer has just dropped an extensive behind-the-scenes look at the campaign shoot!

Well, our karmic meters must be off the charts because we’re not sure what we did to deserve this much Selena Gomez + adidas NEO goodness. Mere days after we peeped the fresh, sporty looks for Sel’s NEO spring campaign, the label launched its brand new beachy-keen (LOL had to) summer collection! Over the past couple of months, we’ve been closely following Selena’s brand ambassadorship for NEO, a project that has her pulling double duty as both face and guest-designer for the teen-styled line. And now that Selena's punctually dropped a first look at the summer collection (in the midst of her other little career as an international pop star, mind you), we are straight REVVED for the dog days. In the lookbook, Selena sports sunspired staples including swim wear, accessories, airy knits, and may even a flamingo or two. Check out more looks after the jump!
Is it hot in here...or is it just Beyonce's SMOKING NEW H&M VIDEO?! Duh, it's definitely the latter. The clip for "Beyoncé as Mrs. Carter in H&M" officially landed this morning, and you guys, trust us when we say the superstar is taking island dreaming to an epic new level. Filmed earlier this year in the Bahamas (remember when the campaign was just a whispery rumor?), the vid stars Bey posing sultrily amidst the tropical palm trees and clear blue skies dressed in H&M's new swimwear line. Shot by Jonas Åkerlund, we hear the concept is to represent the four natural elements— fire, water, wind, and earth— in a seriously fashionable way.

If there's anyone who can convince us to shake off those last bits of winter blahs, you'd better BET it's Selena Gomez. The actress and singer is serving up a much-needed dose of cheery spring goodness in the latest adidas NEO campaign, which just landed this week. We've been keeping close tabs on the star in her new dual role as the face and designer of the teen-centric label, from the interactive lookbook to her New York Fashion Week runway show. And while she's definitely been staying busy working with the team behind the scenes on the sporty, cute collections, now she's showing it all off in front of the camera! We've got your first look at Sel working the breezy tunics, graphic leggings, and the rest of the wares like the total pro that she is. See even more images after the jump!
Cassie for Forever 21.

OMG, summer is almost here, y'all! We cannot WAIT to leave the house sans jacket, and if there's one person really getting us revved up for the warm days ahead, it's Cassie. Forever 21 just dropped their summer lookbook, and it features the "The Boys" singer decked out in beach-ready bustier crop tops, printed minis, and heaps of neon accessories. To be honest, we can't tell if we're more excited to see Cassie lookin' super fly in affordable duds or if we're just tearing up at the mere sight of a beach. Either way, we NEED to discuss Ms. C hardcore chillin' on a gilded low rider sporting a black and white striped top, short-shorts, tube socks, mesh lace-up platforms, stacked neon bracelets and a lime green lace veil. Also, that pompadour with matte red lips and long black nails? Too good.

Prom season is officially in full swing, and by now, the message should be coming through loud and clear: there's NO one right way to do prom. You could rock a short dress, you could go ultra-glam, hey, you can even go as a hamburger if you wanted...but leave it to Nasty Gal to show us some of the coolest options yet. If you know NG, then you already know that Sophia Amoruso & co. have never really done things the traditional way. Luckily, the retailer's "break all the rules" philosophy applies to their newest lookbook as well, aptly titled "Anti-Prom." Stocked with tons of dresses (duh), plus unexpected pieces like spiky stud accessories, leather jackets, and even bright blue creepers, this is prom like you've never seen it before (and it's awesome).
Beyonce as Mrs. Carter in H&M.
Holy. Mother. Of Blue Ivy Carter. Beyonce's H&M bikini ads have dropped, and they are just... WOWOWOWOW. Absolutely smokin'. We're not sure about y'all, but this is exactly how we wanted to be spending our Monday morning—rolling our tongues carpet-style back into our mouths thanks to Mrs. Carter and her mind-blowing hourglass physique. Appropriately, the vibrant new "Beyonce as Mrs. Carter in H&M" campaign images have been revealed in step with her summer The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour which kicks off in Europe today.

Given her red carpet steez and consistently on-point hair, makeup, and nail art game, it should come as a surprise to absolutely nobody that Sarah Hyland has nabbed herself a beauty campaign. Our only question is, what took so long?! The 22-year-old Modern Family star is the new spokesperson for Heart Calgon, the cool little sister brand of drugstore fave Calgon. And while the company's vintage '70s "Take Me Away!" commercial is forever ingrained in our memories, Heart Calgon's affordable and sweet-smelling shimmery mists, lotions, and body wash are totally modern and fresh. Just in time for the products to hit select Walgreens stores, Sarah unveiled her campaign in New York City. In between munching on chocolates (the launch was at Dylan's Candy Bar, what can we say?), we quizzed the actress on her beauty routine, her love for sneaker wedges, and why she doesn't believe in fashion moment regret. Peep our exclusive interview with Sarah below!
