Style has moved! come with us to mtv news »

It's no secret that we're big fans of Selena Gomez around here at MTV Style: we keep up to date on her hairstyles, who she's hanging out with, and what she's wearing on tour. As big-time Selenators, imagine how excited we were when we found out that we'd get to chat with Selly about her "Stars Dance" tour wardrobe, her role in the design process, and how she changes outfits so many times. We were the most excited.

The blow of the end of this second season of The Newsroom is somewhat softened by its uncharacteristically happy ending (and teetering on the brink of the fall TV season *exhaaaaaaales*), but there are just no two ways around it: we're going to miss Neal Sampat (Dev Patel) and his elegant grandfather cardigan game.

Maybe we were too wrapped up in reacquainting ourselves with Aaron Sorkin's mile-a-minute dialogue in the first season, but this second season, we just couldn't help admiring the excellent layering job done by ACN's resident tech whiz kid and feeling like we needed to rethink that frumpy emergency "work cardigan" we leave draped on the backs of our desk chairs. (Oh, COME ON, you all have them!!)

WWCW: What Would Carrie Wear?
Photo: Splash/Nasty Gal

It's hard to imagine Carrie Bradshaw pre-Manolos (see also: "I've spent $40,000 on shoes and I have no place to live? I will literally be the old woman who lived in her shoes!" – SATC, Season 4). But as costume designer for The Carrie Diaries, Eric Daman (who, BTW, apprenticed with Pat Fields and basically bathed in a haute closet doing costumes on Gossip Girl) has done a totally ~radical~ job at doing just that. Like, totally. For sure.

Do The Right Thing

The 2013 Video Music Awards are breaking new ground as the very first awards show in Brooklyn, kicking off live at 9 p.m. EST on Sunday, August 25 from Barclays Center. (And if you don't know, now you knowwww.) In honor of the history-making show, we're immersing ourselves in the VMAs' new neighborhood, unpacking iconic aspects of BK style in movies, music, and art. First up, Spike Lee's Do The Right Thing.

Do The Right Thing is a cultural triumph, telling the story of one day—the hottest of the year—in a Bed-Stuy neighborhood bubbling over with racial tension. The film, Lee's third-EVER feature, is visually stunning, awash with a vibrant and jumbled color palette of yellows, reds, limes, and purples, and the interplay is arresting, adding a slightly surreal tinge to the rising turbulence. The silhouettes—tees, shorts, tanks—remind you that it's a hot summer day on Stuyvesant Avenue between Lexington and Quincy street. The film and Ruth E. Carter's brilliant costuming work had a highly influential trickle-down effect—see Will Smith's TV wardrobe for the entire six-season run of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. (Important/Fun Fact: Carter is also the genius responsible for Halle Berry's orange patent latex and gravity-defying hair in B*A*P*S.)

OK guys, so we know that there's a lot of drama going on at Beacon Hills High School. Packs are feuding, and we were left with a MAJOR cliffhanger at the end of tonight's episode of Teen Wolf (To Be Continued are the worst three words on a television screen am I right?), but we're going to focus on the juicy plot points because... Lydia and Stiles finally kissed! *SQUEALS* Stiles has always fawned over Lydia, so we loved seeing the twosome in a heart-warming lip lock. In honor of the monumental occasion, we can't help but dissect their perfect style as a potential couple!

'The To Do List.'

The To Do List hit me right in the feels for a lot of different reasons. I realized my intense love for Donald Glover after watching him dance in yellow overalls. I had a sudden desire to throw away all my purses and just carry a Trapper Keeper to my next party. And yeah, for the first time ever, I found myself thinking, "Hmm, maybe I should buy a pair of skorts."

Aside from the A+ incredible cast (Aubrey Plaza, you just may have redeemed yourself from that whole MTV Movie Awards Will Ferrell stage-crash thing) and cringe-worthy sex jokes, the real star of The To Do List is the throwback '90s fashion. The characters aren't just wearing crop tops and cut-offs; they're using those crop tops and cut-offs to tell a story. A story about just how embarrassing high school is. Deep, right? My favorite '90s staples are used here to make me simultaneously yearn for the bodacious decade AND praise Alanis that I made it out of there alive. So, here are the 5 most awkward '90s style staples, as told by The To Do List (also, real life).

We'll be honest—we can never get enough of Stiles' layered tee ensembles on Teen Wolf. Sure, Dylan O'Brien rocks simply chic looks IRL, but costume designer Barbara Vazquez styles Stiles (hehe) in goofy tees as an homage to the original '80s film for the show. She told us, "If you’ll notice, Stiles, you see him wearing a T-shirt with something ridiculous on it, or has a funny image, which is what the original styles had in the original movie." Ahhh, now it all makes sense! This week, Stiles stayed true to his go-to layered graphic tee and plaid shirt ensemble, but opted for a summery surfer ringer tee with a navy blue plaid button-up thrown on top.

It's rare that we talk about legwear here on our weekly Teen Wolf style star recap, but we just COULDN'T resist mentioning Allison's on-point gam game. (Whew, try saying that ten times fast.) Let's start from the top, shall we? At a glance, it looks like our girl is copping a pretty tame ensemble--a long-sleeve gray skater dress with a light brown, double-buckled wide belt, loose layered waves and no sign of any flashy accessories. But, as the camera pans down, we get to peep her KILLER white fishnets complete with knee-high printed socks and tall wedge boots. #WERK

Teen WolfAllison and Scott on 'Teen Wolf'.

Something's in the air on Teen Wolf, y'all. Last week, we noticed that Scott and Stiles were total tartan twinsies, and this week Scott matched another one of his Beacon Hills High buds—Allison! Both of them sported their own version of a cool Canadian tuxedo, but each in their own awesome way. Allison layered a jean jacket over a purple flannel button-up shirt and ruffled burgundy tunic. She decided to go with a darker denim on the bottom half to give her ensemble a more contrasted look. In the shot below, we also get to peep her effortlessly cool brown crossbody bag, which we think really pops against her outfit. She finished the entire look with a messy high bun and touch of bronzer on her cheeks. Perf!

Veronica Mars, y'all.

Guys, we just can't get enough of the new Veronica Mars movie. On Friday, we watched the cast troll Comic-Con with their "Team Piz" and "Team Logan" tees, and before that, we broke down every single outfit Ms. Mars (Kristen Bell) has worn so far on set and got ALL the deets on the return of her infamous studded bag. But then, we were hit with the motherlode this weekend—the first look at ACTUAL, LIVING BREATHING FOOTAGE from the upcoming film! In it, we get to peep even MORE VM outfits, and (in-between totally spazzing out at this movie actually being a real thing) we noticed a serious theme happening in all her clothing: leather.

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