Jason Schwartzman and three of his Lookmatic "Uncleanord" styles.

Full disclosure: we've harbored a not-so-secret crush on Jason Schwartzman ever since his Rushmore days more than a decade ago. We know, we know...in movie star time, which is kind of like dog years, that's practically forever. But thanks to flicks like Bored to Death, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Moonrise Kingdom AND a side gig modeling for Band of Outsiders, our obsession is still in full-throttle mode, and now it's taken up a notch with his new design project. The actor has created a style of glasses for the online eyewear boutique Lookmatic, putting his adorably eccentric spin on classic vintage frames. Dubbed the "Uncleanord" after a pair of specs he received from his Uncle Leonard (get it?) when he was a kid, the revamped '50s-inspired shape comes in black, olive, and clear prescription styles as well as a sunglasses version.

It's time that year again—Lauren Conrad models her latest LC Lauren Conrad collection for Kohl's, and we give you alllll the deets on it. For her fall 2012 line, the Hillsie doles out tons of flirty flocks, statement blazers, and colorful denim. Lucky for us, some of it already hit stores and is available to purchase right this second (!!!), but the rest of the line will continue to roll out through October. So, let's talk about those duds, shall we? Above, LC sports a totally school-appropriate red, sleeveless polka dot dress ($64) with some nude pumps and quite possibly the most amazing hair braid/headband thing we have ever SEEN. For a more nighttime-ready ensemble, LC shows off a fun black floral dress ($60) with matching heels. Perf!
Theophilus London launches LVRS x Del Toro slipper collaboration.

The day has come, my friends. MTV Style finally met THE Theophilus London. I know, I know. So awesome, right? This is how it went down: We stopped by The Black Tag in Soho for Theophilus' LVRS x Del Toro slipper release party (yes, that's what it was called) to check out the shoes he designed and, of course, to talk ALL-things fashion. We even brought a camera crew to document this momentous event, and let us just say this—Theophilus is one hilarious (and high fashion) dude! After we chatted it up, the doors opened and fans swarmed in to shop his limited-edition slipper collection and LVRS clothing line. The drinks started flowing, the DJ turned up the jams, things got RULL sweaty, and we had a grand ol' time. Watch Theophilus dish on all the deets about his LVRS x Del Toro collab below!
Lil' Wayne and Nicki Minaj have a healthy fashion competition.

Ever since we first caught wind that Nicki Minaj would be coming out with her very own clothing line, we knew it'd be near-impossible for our brains to handle the parade of candy raver, Harajuku Barbie dreams realness that was sure to follow. How many shades of pink would be used? Would tiers stuffed animals be involved? Would there be purchasable wigs to boot? Chiefmost among our questions, though, was WHEN we might be able to get our paws on the Nicki-designed line. Thanks to a little chat she had with our friends at Thread Count, we're that much closer to a concrete answer along with a grip of palate whetting details, including the healthy fashion rivalry between Nicki and her Young Money mentor Lil' Wayne!
It feels like just yesterday when Whitney Port made her NYFW runway debut! The City star showed off her fall 2012 Whitney Eve collection at the Lincoln Center, and we even caught up with her backstage to chat about her experience. Since then, Whitney has launched a jewelry line and, of course, has been continuing to work on her next spring 2013 Whitney Eve collection. Little did we know, Whitney was planning on making her NYFW show a WEE bit different than her previous ones by adding one extra (huge) element—YOU! She announced on her blog that she's creating the first-ever fan funded show for spring 2013. Now you're probably thinking, "Whaaa? She needs ME to help pay for her collection?" Well, technically, yes, but there are some pretttyyy cool perks that come along with it.
Olivia Wilde with her Alternative Apparel "Message" bag.

With a whopping 9 movies on the horizon and some serious style cred under her belt, Olivia Wilde has a lot on her plate. But then again, this Andover grad is a total overachiever, and her latest project is a sure-to-be hit for everyone involved...yep, including us. The actress and activist has teamed up with Alternative Apparel on a new messenger bag/ backpack hybrid that's as cool as it is charitable. After spending the last few years involved in rebuilding Haiti after the 2010 earthquake, Olivia co-founded Campaign Happiness, an organization aimed at helping local development through rebuilding efforts, education, and more. "We've struggled to raise money for the organization for a while now," she explained last night at the bag's launch event in New York. "Everyone is very generous, but it's hard in this economy. So we wanted to find a way to combine commerce and get people to buy things they'd buy anyway, but to have the proceeds go toward somewhere great." The solution? An army green shoulder bag that works equally as well roughing it outdoors as it does pounding city blocks. (Just ask Olivia, she's used it for both!)

Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus.

Liam Hemsworth, fashion designer? If you ask his soon-to-be wife Miley Cyrus, it JUST MIGHT be happening. The singer was spotted at the Project New York Trade Show on Monday, checking out next season's clothes because- wait for it- Liam might start a clothing line! Women's Wear Daily reports that after Miley hit up collections from designers like Grey Ant, she told attendees at the show's after party that the reason she was there was because her fiance was curious about branching out into fashion. Hmm....interesting.
Lil Wayne and Rihanna both wore Trukfit.
Hackney Weekend was such a fashion extravaganza as far as Rihanna was concerned, we had to pick and choose our fave outfits carefully. We knew that we wanted to comment on her Trukfit shorts the second we saw those photos of her leaving her London hotel, though, and now, finally, we can! The singer is no stranger to sartorial risks, and although they look perfectly at home on her, the tiger print bottoms are actually meant for dudes. Lil Wayne rocked a pair at the James L. Knight center in Miami last night, and we have to say, we're having a hard time deciding who wore them better. Lil Wayne gets some bonus points because, you know, they're from his own line, but we love how Rihanna styled hers with a cropped jersey and converse.
At MTV Style, we're gearing up for Back To School season, bringing you all the hottest trends for your new year debut, and so is Selena Gomez who's hard at work promoting the forthcoming fall collection of her Dream Out Loud exclusive KMart collaboration. Sel teased the upcoming campaign with a quick snap from the shoot, but now, she's releasing a full video of behind-the-scenes footage from her time spent filming the DOL commercial.
